Remains (REVIEW)

“30 Days of Night” is one of my favorite movies of the 2000's so I was somewhat intrigued to find a low-budget zombie movie that was written by the same author. Unfortunately, the story of “Remains” lacks the clever and frightening setup of “30 Days of Night” that made that movie so unique and enjoyable. In fact, the contrast in quality between the two movies is so vast that it was actually kind of surprising that it came from the same person.

Horror Comics: "Creepy Presents Bernie Wrightson"

Creepy Presents Bernie Wrightson
Artist: Bernie Wrightson
Writers: Bernie Wrightson, various
Publisher: Dark Horse Books

Any horror fan worth a damn has seen Bernie Wrightson’s work. Wrightson is perhaps best known for co-creating Swamp Thing, but even if you’re not a comic book reader, you’ve likely come across his illustrations in Stephen King’s “Cycle of the Werewolf”, “The Wolves of Calla”, and in the restored edition of “The Stand”. Wrightson’s meticulous and loving illustrated edition of “Frankenstein” is a must-have for any follower of the genre.

Horror Headlines: Friday February 25th, 2011

You know what? It's Friday. I'm just going to go ahead and set your day on edge by making you watch this clip from "Predator: The Musical". You can thank me later.

Well it's about time. Lance Henriksen is writing an autobiography titled "Not Bad For a Hum". It's going to be published by comic scribe Steve Niles over at his Bloody Pulp Books imprint too. Finally, somebody besides Lance and myself think Lance is awesome enough to warrant an autobiography! For full details, be sure to visit the official site for Not Bad For a Human

Speaking of Steve Niles, this guy's on fire! According to a recent post at his website, the writer has announced he will be penning a comic version of "Nevermore", the one man stage play based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe that stars Jeffery Combs! Combs will be involved in the comic as well, so this will be one to watch. Well, one to watch if you're a Poe/Comic nerd like me.

This year's Saturn Awards nominee's are in and there's a fair share of genre flicks getting the nod this year. Among them are "Let Me In" and "Shutter Island" landing nominations for Best Horror Film, "Splice" for Best Science Fiction and "Twilight Eclipse" for Best Fantasy Film! Oh wait... should have read that list all the way through. At any rate, there are plenty of good horror films being nominated, so check out the full list at the Saturn Awards Site!

Since we're talking awards and I'm known around these parts as our official "P.R. Bear", I'd be remiss if I didn't take this moment in the spotlight for a reminder! The Bloody Good Horror Podcast has been nominated for a Rondo Award in the Best Horror Audio category! You should head over to the Rondo Awards site and cast your ballot for your favorite Podcast that's hosted by five guys named Eric, Mark, Jon, Joe and Casey! Not that I'm telling you who to vote for or anything...

In Real People News: 

We all think our jobs suck. The next time the man has you down though, be happy you're not this Durango Police officer who had a postal worker spit feces at him. Yes, 'spit feces'. From his mouth.

On this day in history: 

February 25th 1922 - Henri Landru, the notorious French serial killer known as "Bluebeard", guillotined for murdering ten women, and one boy. His motive was purely financial; by placing classified ads Landru lured selected women into his clutches, married them, and disposed of their bodies without a trace. While denying guilt to the end, a drawing given to his attorney had written on the reverse, "I did it. I burned their bodies in my kitchen oven".

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.
