Bloody Good Halloween Horror Movie Choices for 2013

Halloween season is officially underway! And for all the like minded 'Halloween People' out there this is a time of joy, celebration, and triumph as the waves of 'normies' flock to each one of us for opinions on what to watch throughout the scariest of seasons.

Though we will always have great suggestions and fun picks to throw their way, we're not always 100% caught up to date with the best options during the season. So here at BloodyGoodHorror we have a listing of some of the strongest suggestions theatrically, rental wise, and even the most up to date Netflix Instant suggestions.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday December 18th, 2012

"This script is terrible and only the guy who co-wrote 'Predators' can fix it". Something I never thought would be said but apparently someone at Paramount uttered those fateful words because Michael Finch has been picked up to re-write the script for "Hellified", a new film about a group of criminals sent to Hell to stop the end of the world. He's kind of like a superman for movie scripts you aren't going to like.

John C. Reilly can do no wrong in my eyes. Alright I'll admit I never saw that movie where he plays a vampire who runs a carnival, or something like that, but everything I've seen him in has been pure gold. So I'm excited for "Life After Beth", a new zombie comedy flick he's going to star in along with Aubrey Plaza, the depressing girl from "Parks and Recreation". The film is based off of a UK short and will be 100 times better because Reilly is American and we don't drink tea.

According to James Franco himself he probably won't have a role in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" after some shifts at Fox's big boy table. Nothings confirmed but Franco had apparently had a small role in the sequel but is now fairly sure the part has been cut. He then went on to say nobody calls him anymore and he's so lonely. He then sobbed uncontrollably for 45 minutes.

I don't know where the hell this came from but "The American Scream" is now available on DVD and it sounds pretty awesome. The documentary follows 3 different families as they transform their homes into spooky time attractions for the Halloween season. Sounds like a dandy Christmas gift for that special someone on your list. Wait, next week is Christmas? Where the hell have I been!?

In Real People News: 

And Edward Furlong's 6 year old son has tested positive for cocaine and been taken out of his custody. And at the last second for the father of the year awards.

Chicago! My new home. Land of the deep dish pizza and giant hot dog. Also land of this woman who ran over her boyfriend with her car and then lit his testicles on fire. I've made a terrible mistake.

Fantastic Fest - Day 4, the end is nigh!

One of the sad truths of life is all good things come to an end. As I type this last recap of Fantastic Fest I'm 5,000 feet in the air hurtling back towards Boston, far away from the cozy confines of the Alamo Drafthouse and the comfort of their table service that delivers me delicious fried pick spears washed down with a black and white shake. To call Fantastic Fest an amazing experience would undersell it. The four days and change in Austin marked one of the rare times when reality exceeded the lofty expectations I'd built for the rip.

Posters: "Best Worst Movie" mastermind debuts "The American Scream"

You may remember Michael Paul Stephenson as the guy who directed "Best Worst Movie", the breakout hit documentary from a few years back about "Troll 2". Stephenson was also the child star of that film, and "Best Worst Movie" was in part a response to his discovery that the infamously bad "Troll 2" had become something of a cult classic with kids who grew up watching it on HBO in the 90's.
