BGH Classic Pack - First Person Horrors Vol. 2

In our first found footage classic pack we took a look at some of the best -- and one or two of the worst -- that the sub-genre has to offer. But those podcast episodes were by no means the last word, so we're back with a second round in this new classic pack.

Horror Headlines: Thursday January 13th, 2011

Suicidal birds, a crazy scarecrow and a women hammering nails into her fingers. All a part of the new trailer for the "Husk", the first release from the new After Dark Originals series. It was also my Senior Prom theme, which is a really weird coincidence.

Christopher Landon, the guy who wrote "Paranormal Activity 2" may in fact not be writing the third film in the series but instead working on a new film titled "Wake" which would star none other than Miss Miley Cyrus. Now who's excited? Just me? Whatever, you guys are pricks.

Here's Amanda Seyfried in a hot new poster for the upcoming film "Red Riding Hood". Look at those ankles! Man it's like Playboy if it had come out in 1812 or whenever the Pilgrims came to Florida and started a colony. Something like that.

Oh Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, you're like the two best friends I always wanted but never had. We would spend our weekends in your parents basements drinking beers and playing air hockey. We'd high five so many times our hands would hurt. But enough of my fantasy, here's the second trailer for the alien flick "Paul", which stars those two if you couldn't of guessed.

In Real People News: 

With all the birds falling from the sky for no reason it's nice to have a clear answer to why these birds in Romania dropped dead. They simple answer? They were drunk, drunk as hell actually after they got into some leftovers of the wine making process. That's how I want to go.

And this is heartwarming isn't it. An 8 year old boy in Oklahoma had to be rescued after he got his tongue stuck to a metal pole when he was dared to lick it. This of course was also a famous scene in "The Godfather 3" I believe, I love the classics.

Horror Headlines: Monday November 8th, 2010

Hayden Panettiere, Nikki Reed and Rebecca De Mornay are confirmed for the upcoming High School thriller "Downers Grove". I was going to make a joke about how it's ridiculous that Panettiere is playing a High School student but apparently she is only 21 so that's actually pretty young in movie school years.

What's up next for Oren "Mr. Paranormal Activity" Peli? Why a film called "Eliza Graves" that is loosely based on an Edgar Allan Poe short story. Hell yeah this is going to be awesome. The entire thing is going to be shot on helmet cams. Next level!

Speaking of! Apparently "Paranormal Activity 2" has up to 20 alternative endings to the film that will most likely make their way to the DVD and Blu-Ray releases. A couple of my favorites include the entire family hopping on the pool cleaner and riding off to safety and one where the female cast members all go out for a 3 hour pole dancing class and never bother returning to the house.

Well hello dreamy pants! Ryan Gosling is rumored to be taking the lead in the upcoming big screen adaptation of "All You Need Is Kill". I have no desire to see this but there's a 99% chance I will because my wife has made it no secret that she'd leave me in a heartbeat for this guy. To be honest I don't blame her, his eyes are like two pools you want to swim in for days.

In Real People News: 

Remember when you were a kid and there was that weird lady who would give out perfume samples and pencils on Halloween? Well here's a couple in Oregon that was giving out condoms to kids. Upsetting to parents, yes, but if I was 3 I probably would have just thought it was a water balloon that was ribbed for her pleasure.

And this is why I don't have any pets, well at least not ones that I would care about if they dropped dead. A man in Tampa Florida apparently gave his dog mouth to mouth after it was attacked by an alligator. Imagine if the dog was faking it, like in "The Sandlot"? Oh man egg on that guy's face!

On this day in history: 

1987 - A bomb planted by the Irish Republican Army exploded as crowds gathered in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, for a ceremony honoring Britain's war dead, killing 11 people.

Horror Headlines: Thursday November 4th, 2010

"Splice" and "Cube" director Vincenzo Natali is apparently working on 38 movies at the same time including the recently announced "388 Arletta Avenue". From the new poster for the flick I'm guessing it has something to do with cameras, the internet and LOL'ing. Just guessing here though.

The cast for "The Howling: Reborn" is shaping up nicely and today we've got a few names to throw your way. I say nicely in the hopes that someone here knows who the hell Landon Liboiron is because I don't recognize a thing from his IMDB. Although I am interested in something called "Moondance Alexander". I can't wait for the next staff picks on the podcast.

I've got little clue what "Sucker Punch" is but I think it might be the greatest Cinamax 2am women's prison movie ever made. I could be wrong though, god I hope not. Anyway it's got a new trailer and I think I'm in love.

Here's a new exciting one sheet for "Paranormal Activity: Tokyo Night". It's just like the one sheets you saw for the US version of the film but with Asians. I'm going to stop now because honestly I have no idea what's considered racist anymore.

In Real People News: 

Want to throw up? Here's a toy poodle that was found in ditch that has its fur so matted that it couldn't even see. Put your coffee down, it's going to get nasty folks.

And now that you're done throwing up here's some bacon flavored soda to wash the taste out of your mouth. What a terrible morning this is turning into.

Tricks & Treats at the Box Office

"Saw 3D" trailer promises bodily harm to audience.

October 31st is not just a day for trick or treating, it's also a day to reflect on the year in horror. With Halloween at our backs and Thanksgiving in Christmas looming before us, there will be no more theatrical horror releases in 2010. Sure, we might have some big budget affairs, such as "Skyline," or indie horror releases, such as "Heartless," to look forward to, but as for things that go bump or monsters that prowl, the time for expectation is largely over.

Horror Headlines: Monday October 22nd, 2010

If you saw one supernatural horror film this past weekend there is a solid chance it was "Paranormal Activity 2". The film had the highest-grossing opening weekend ever for the sub-genre with a chicken foot shattering $41.5 million. I know five naughty little podcasters who saw it and will be recording a show for it this week. See how that tied in? Wasn't that nice?

In honor of "The Walking Dead" finally hitting AMC this coming weekend the good people behind the series have released some new behind the scenes photos. The show looks awesome and I have nothing bad or sarcastic to say, which is strange and confusing to me. Thanks AMC, you made me hit puberty again.

For those of you waiting with baited breath for "Host 2" to be released you can now officially wet yourself because the sequel is going to be released in 3D! But now that you're all excited I should also mention that the 3D conversion will delay the film's release as well as change the overall logistics. Waaah!

Steven Spielberg has confirmed that he will be bringing "Robopocalypse" to the big screen in 2013. The film is based on a book by Daniel H. Wilson and focuses on the fate of humans after the robot uprising. Hopefully there will also be robot cops because I keep reading the title as "RoboCopOcalypse".

On this day in history: 

1938 - The Archbishop of Dubuque, the Most Reverend Francis J.L. Beckman, denounces the newfangled Swing music -- the latest craze -- as nothing more than "a degenerated musical system... turned loose to gnaw away the moral fiber of young people." Its cannibalistic rhythms are said to lead one down the "primrose path to Hell."

Paranormal Activity 2 (REVIEW)

The phenomenon that was "Paranormal Activity" burned so brightly last year that at times it's easy to forget about "Paranormal Activity" the movie. As the legend goes, on a ridiculous shoe-string budget, that film went on to gross nearly $200 million worldwide, mostly on the back of a viral marketing strategy and word of mouth. "Paranormal Activity 2" would never had the chance to sneak up on anybody the same way.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday October 19th, 2010

Here's a new one! The gang promoting "Paranormal Activity 2" have set up a phone number that you can call and listen to some spooky fun. Which is awesome because normally I have to pay $2.99 a minute to have a women fake being frightened for her life. Don't judge.

If you love "Glee", and who doesn't, then there's a solid chance you love "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". Well I have good news for you, kid who is overweight but still wears shirts two sizes to small! Ryan Murphy, the creator of "Glee" has just wrapped an entire episode devoted to the camp classic and is in talks to possibly do a remake. Good, I haven't been assaulted by a tranny coming out of a late night movie in years.

Adrien Brody has taken legal action to try an stop the release of the Dario Argento film "Giallo". Apparently Brody had never watched any of Argento's other films and when he picked up the script said out loud, "No way could this be a pile of crap, people love this guy. Sign me up!". You made your bed big nose, now lie in it with the weird Italian model who can barley speak English but for some reason plays the staring role.

In Real People News: 

A Mexico City borough recently created a 230-foot-long enchilada to warm it's way into my heart and the Guinness book of world records. I think this officially puts Mexico on the map as a world super power. I'm not sure what the criteria is to get into that group but it has to have something to do with making giant food.

On this day in history: 

1987 - The stock market crashed as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 508 points, or 22.6 percent in value - its second biggest percentage drop.
