12 Movies for your Halloween Movie Marathon

Movie marathons are tricky business. Equal parts foresight, improvisation, impulse decision-making, and nostalgia that you really don’t have all that much control over in the long run. You can plan ahead all you want but the energy of a room can turn a slow-burn pee-pants fest into annoying background noise in no time. Add a holiday on top of things, say for example Halloween, and you got more problems than that Jay-Z character.

Let's face it, Predator 2 sucks. For every bit as awesome and timeless as the original "Predator" is, "Predator 2" is a shitty, lame, dated sequel steeped in '80's corn and cheese. Yet, it still manages to be awesome. How is that? Well, let me count the reasons:

1) Arnold has been replaced by Danny Glover. Yes, the "I'm too old for this shit" guy from the "Lethal Weapon" series takes over for Arnold. Awesomely bad.

Predators (REVIEW)

Hurtling toward a dense, jungle planet Royce (Adrien Brody) awakens in time to deploy his shoot and crash land into the canopy. Upon reaching the ground his disorientation turns to horror as he meets eight other humans -- well trained killers all -- who have also awakened to find themselves on this distant world. These unlikely teammates come to realize that they are part of an intergalactic hunting expedition put on by a group of highly evolved Predators. The group must stick together and distinguish friend from foe if they are to survive.

Sometimes dreams do come true! Phantasm II is finally being released on DVD! September 15th is the date of history when we all finally get to hold the second coming of Reggie Bannister in our hands.

Word is out that Spitfire Pictures is going to remake the 1974 Hammer flick Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires. No news on who will star in this kung-fu vampire camp fest, but Peter Cushing is dead, so what's the point?

As if you hadn't had enough "Trick 'r Treat" news this week, this ill-fated movie is also getting the graphic novel treatment and you can see the first five pages here.

If you were for some reason excited about the news yesterday that Robert Rodriguez is hoping for an extended 'Ahnold' cameo in his upcoming "Predator" flick, Rodriguez himself has come out to quash those rumors.

In Real People News: 

Four West Virginia rednecks get in a fist fight in the middle of the road. Naturally, they're both struck dead by oncoming traffic. This is also known as 'thinning the heard'.

Fishing in Florida is always a relaxing way to pass the time, unless you're the Tampa man who hooked a live 8 foot missile.

A Spokane man leaves his bag of crystal meth at the checkout counter of Ziggy's hardware store after a supply run. Although he would have been in the clear if he just walked on, the man returned to the hardware store and asked if they had seen is lost drugs.

Horror Headlines: Friday April 24th, 2009

Apparently I'm the only one in the horror community who doesn't think it's worth it to post a bootleg trailer of "Halloween 2". And when I say "bootleg", what I mean is a shitty cam'd version from a theater, shot by someone who is apparently in the last seat in the back/right of the establishment. I know, it's very exciting. If you have patience, the actual "H2" trailer will be showing up on Yahoo! Movies today, stay tuned here for a link when it's live.

Rumor has it that Richard Dreyfuss will make a cameo in "Piranha 3D", and will be "paying homage to jaws, even drinking Amity brand beer". Very subtle, guys.

Debbie Rochon stars in "Stopped Dead", about a group of friends vacationing in an RV who end up in a "race with death" against a homicidal biker gang. Good times.

Robert Rodriguez was announcing future projects yesterday, and mixed in with the voluminous list was a reboot of the "Predator" franchise. Granted, FOX is still involved because they're the rights holders, but I personally would love to see what Rodriguez can do with that story.

"The Crazies gets pushed back to a February, 2010 release. The Romero remake was previously scheduled to be released September 25th of this year.

Steve Niles has his script ready for a "30 Days of Night" sequel. Since the first one wasn't a smash success, Sam Raimi (in his role as head of Ghosthouse pictures, the label that released the film) has convinced Niles that direct to DVD is the way to go, so that's how the film will be released.

In Real People News: 

The "Baby Shaking Game" has been taken out of the iPhone App store. Of course, just when I finally have the high score at something, they go and take it away from me.

Man opens up door of charter plane and jumps from 23,000 feet, without a parachute. Authorities are still "looking for him". I'm no physics professor, but after falling from that high in the air I'm guessing they're going to have trouble finding anything bigger than tooth.

On this day in history: 

1967: Cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov becomes the world's first space mission fatality after his Soyuz parachutes become entangled four miles above the Earth.
