BGH Goes to HorrorHound

This weekend the Bloody Good Horror team will be making its yearly pilgrimage to the Indianapolis Marriott to take in all the "Terminator"-related highs and lows of HorrorHound Weekend 2012.

You voted, we reviewed. This week it's Catherine Hardwicke's "Red Riding Hood", and you might be surprised by the reaction.

"Red Riding Hood's" Amanda Seyfried and grandmother

Depending on how you look at these things, "Twilight" was either the best or the worst thing to ever happend to director Catherine Hardwicke. On the one hand, it's "Twilight," pretty much synonymous with printing money at this point.

Or maybe you hate us, I'm not sure yet. But anyway here's some back story. After weeks of bickering and slap fighting the 5 of us from the Bloody Good Horror Podcast couldn't decide if we should watch "Red Riding Hood" for the podcast or not. Don't ask me how but in a group of 5 people the vote kept coming up tied. So we did what any sane group of individuals would do. We asked you guys, who I now realize probably like to see us suffer, if we should watch the movie or not.

On March 11th the much anticipated "Red Riding Hood" hits theaters around the country and the world may never be the same. From the trailer and previews it looks like we're being sold a "Twilight" style film with a doe eyed Amanda Seyfried prancing around the woods being harassed by a wolf. So the obvious question comes to mind, should we cover this film for the Podcast? On one side of the fence is the argument that this is a horror film and should be covered by a horror podcast.

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.

You read it here first. 2011 will be the year of Nicolas Cage. There's no denying it. He's got 47 films coming out including "Drive Angry" which now has a trailer for your viewing pleasure. The movie follows Nic as he angrily drives around looking for his daughters murderers. Then he drives some more.

According to Vin Diesel he's been tasked with having 3 different body types for this upcoming "The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking" flick. Of course he compared each of those types to his other movies and I've never once seen him look different in anything but what the hell do I know. Despite internet reports that have stated otherwise I won't spend my free time looking at Vin Diesel's washboard abs.

There's a new image, poster and synopsis for "Red Riding Hood". Don't bother clicking I'll explain them all. The pic is of Amanda Seyfried behind a tree, the poster is of Amanda Seyfried from far away and the synopsis is way to long for me to read but I assume the movie's going to be awful. You're welcome.

Finally here's the gals over at Team Unicorn, a group that I assumed was a number of things I can't mention here, have put together a video on how to deal with Zombies this holiday season titled "A Very Zombie Holiday". Adorable isn't it?

I don't want to say I'm some kind of god that can see into the future but here's the trailer for "Red Riding Hood" and as I predicted it looks like a pile of turds. Of course the words "From the director of 'Twilight'" attached to it might be considered a giveaway but if you want to call me the Nostradamus of crappy movies I'm not going to argue.

Here's a new one sheet for the long awaited indie film "Job". The story revolves around a group of priests who are hiding a secret only to be terrorized by "the Dark Christ". I assume that means the devil. It's got to be, right? Oh god have I stumbled upon some sort of weird racist propaganda movie?

Daniel Stamm, the guy who directed "The Last Exorcism", has been confirmed to be taking the helm of the English remake of "Martyrs". In other news, I'm finally going to see "Martyrs"! Once they make an English language version of it that is.

And I couldn't go a full week without some Nic Cage in my life. His new film "Drive Angry" in which he... well he drives a car real angry like, has been slapped with an R rating. When's the last time Mr. Cage was in an R rated movie? Was it that one where he tried to drink himself to death? I hope he tries to drink himself to death while driving in this one. Next level!
