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, February 2nd, 2012

Say what you want about Russell Crowe but the guy has never made a bad movie, that's a fact. So I guess don't say what you want. You can say anything other than he's a bad actor. So the news that he's possibly in the running for the lead role in the upcoming "Robocop" reboot is nothing but good. Especially after yesterday's news that the guy who wrote "Gran Torino" is penning the script. An elder racist gladiator who turns into a robot? This is going to be the greatest movie ever.

If you see one "stranded in Moscow because of a weird alien invasion flick that came out last year on blu-ray or DVD" this year then I suggest you make it "The Darkest Hour" which has officially been confirmed to be hitting selves on April 20th. That was a long sentence huh? You fancy pants fat cats can even get it in 3D with special features that include... well I don't know. The movie is on there though I'm sure. It would have to be, wouldn't it?

"The Devil Inside" mastermind William Brent Bell has officially thrust the name of his next film upon the world. The film will be called "Wer" and will be a found footage flick about a man being held at a police station who turns into a werewolf. Shooting will begin on the project in April and if I was a betting man I'd say it'll be wrapped just in time for Mid-April.

Kevin Bacon has been confirmed for the lead role in the upcoming Kevin Williamson TV series which revolves around a serial killer who makes his own cult of murderers. No word on the title of the series but Bacon will be playing the role of the FBI agent trying to stop the evil doer. This has got me really excited about a whole new batch of clever Bacon puns that I can start using. None of which I can think of but I'm sure they'll be great.

In Real People News: 

I'd see no problem if this happened down in Orlando but a new law being voted on in Virginia that would restructure the school year around the amusement park Kings Dominion's schedule seems ridiculousness. I mean I guess if you have a season pass or something you should be able to skip the first couple weeks of school. But I don't think that needs to be in the law books or anything.

If I had a nickle for every time I read a story about a 74 year old guy accidentally choking to death on his dentures while having sex with a hooker than well I'd have a nickle. The interesting part of this story is that the hooker said they had been having sex for 30 minutes when it happened. A 74 year old man having sex for 30 god damn minutes. She probably choked him to death just to get his wrinkly man bag off of her.

I know you're all wondering so here's the breakdown of my showering activities. Shampoo, soap, rinse. Interesting huh? The problem is when I shave, which is only about once every two weeks because I'm a lazy prick, I tack on that at the end. What I should really do is Shampoo, rinse, shave and rinse again. Why you ask? Well because since I only shave once in a blue moon my facial hair has a tendency to get a little bit on the longer side and when I shave and hop right out of the shower I don't get all the little whisker bits completely off my amazing body.

Chris Stokes directed "You Got Served" and "House Party 4" so it should come as no surprise that his new film "The Helpers" is a hand held torture flick about seven friends who are being held hostage and brutally killed off one by one on camera. Wait no that doesn't make any sense at all. Take a look at the trailer. There's not one sign of anyone getting served. Unless you consider getting ripped in half "served". I think that's what they call it in Connecticut now that I think of it.

I had no idea Tim Burton was working on a stop motion animation flick titled "Frankenweenie". Mostly because I thought he made that 30 years ago in his basement but what the hell do I know. But here's a new still from the flick which looks to be a little more on the kid-friendly side. Sure the dog is dead but that doesn't make him any less adorable.

For those of you who didn't watch The Golden Globes this past weekend not only did you miss some of this season's hottest fashions but you also missed Jessica Lange taking home the gold for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role on "American Horror Story". This is very exciting for horror fans because ya know... it's cool to see horror shows and movies win awards. Because then we can all go online and complain about how it's not horror and how the shows sucks and stuff. Should fill up most of today at the very least.

This shouldn't come as any surprise to people but "The Devil Inside" took a big old nose dive this past weekend, bringing in only about $8,020,000 at the box office. For those of you keeping score at home that's less than half of what it pulled in during it's Friday night midnight showings during it's opening weekend. I don't want to credit anyone for this turn but I did tweet that I was disappointed in the flick so at least 13 people would have been swayed by my opinion. Sorry Hollywood.

In Real People News: 

If there's one thing I've learned from taking numerous trips to Virginia to visit family it's don't ever mess with the kids there. They have no sense of humor whatsoever. You especially don't mess with their juice boxes or you'll get stabbed. I have proof.

The story isn't so much interesting because an Ohio man was arrested for having child pornography on his computer. I assume that happens in Ohio almost every 8 hours. It's the fact that he's wearing an "Internet was down so I thought I'd go outside" t-shirt in his mug shot. Hey I get it!

Trailers: "Devil Inside" director dares you to "Stay Alive"

If you were wondering what William Brent Bell was up to before actively trolling the horror world with his film "The Devil Inside" (full disclosure, I liked it), the answer is, to some people anyway, trolling horror fans... Here's the trailer for his previous directorial effort, "Stay Alive". And on a much more self-loathing level, I kind of liked that film too.

Trailers: "Silent House" stars chimeric Olsen Twin

It's that time of year when trailers for 2012's horror releases are starting to trickle into theaters. Caught this one this weekend while watching "The Devil Inside" (for the rest of that story, please visit www.clownpenis.fart). It's flown under my radar so far, and not only does it look like a bad-ass terror film (which I've been saying we need more of these days)... I'm guessing the technology they used to fuse the two Olsen Twins together to form a prettier, more talented actress is really going to change the world for the better. Just think of all the things we can combine!

Today we got a comment on one of our old posts that simple read "sex". I have no idea what it's referring too, the post in no way has anything to do with bumping uglies. It's the greatest comment we've ever received though and I think sums up every reason I do this. And by this I mean bang on a keyboard like a chimp for 30 minutes and send it to Eric (our Editor-in-Chief) to try an decode. You're welcome, world...

Good news for all of you patiently awaiting the first trailer for "Resident Evil: Retribution". January 18th will be the day that the trailer will hit the tubes, it'll then be showing in theaters that weekend before "Underworld: Awakening". The other good news for all of you who are excited about "Resident Evil: Retribution" is that men's Husky pants are on sale this weekend at Sears.

I'm not going to lie, I'm fairly excited for the release of "The Woman In Black". It looks creepy, that Harry Potter kid looks adorable trying to act all grown up and I'm a sucker for old timey fashions. What can I say. And here's a new poster for the film which hits theaters on February 3th. It has two of the three things I mentioned I love about the film. Oh what I wouldn't give for little Harry Potter to be in the poster smoking a pipe. But instead of smoke coming out of the pipe there's bubbles. How cute would that be!?

Remember how creepy little Isabelle Fuhrman was in "Orphan"? All fake teeth and crap. Well it looks like the little one is now in talks to join the cast of M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming Sifi flick "After Earth". The film tells the story of a world where people no longer live on earth and two hero's who find themselves stranded on the blue orb. Will and Jaden Smith are also a part of the cast. If there was any way I could pinch this movies cheeks I think I would.

It looks like "The Devil Inside" director William Brent Bell and co-writer Matthew Peterman are off to Romania to film a new as of yet titled horror flick. It's going to be a found footage film.... and it's going to be called "The Devil Insider"... and it's going to suck. Alright those last two things are lies. Well the second to last. I can't comment on the whole sucking thing. I'm not god.

In Real People News: 

Drunk girls can be so fun! Here's a story about one in Connecticut who punched a cab driver and then tried to use the excuse that she's disabled when she was arrested. She isn't and it didn't work. So she went with the "It's always the illegals that get away with the (some foul words no website will print)." Oddly enough, that didn't work either.

A 62 year old woman in Florida is under arrested after she bashed her husband head in with a hammer because he was watching Judge Judy. I've always said that those Judge Joe Brown fans are a danger to society and need to be locked up.

I've now officially become one of those people that snore simply because they're fat. It's a pretty proud day for me. The Mrs. doesn't seem too impressed though.

The entire world is excited about the release of the big screen adaptation of "The Hunger Games". Literally everyone in the world. Walk outside and just ask a random person. They'll wet themselves and run away giggling they're so excited. Seriously. Well prepare to get even moister because Lionsgate has announced that pre-sale tickets will go on sale Wednesday February 22nd at MovieTickets and Fandango, almost a month ahead of it's current March 23rd pre-sale date. I'm not going to tell you the actual release date because you got that tattooed on your forehead months ago and I would just feel like a jerk spoiling that for you.

If you've been chomping at the bit to see "Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters" then I got some bad news for you. The fairy tale witch hunk action romp's release date has been pushed back almost a year, from March 2, 2012 all the way to January 11, 2013. Apparently the push is happening because Paramount is surprised at the success of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "The Devil Inside" and is now trying to spread out their earnings a bit more. Because if there's one thing you don't want to do, it's earn too much money.

David Auburn has been tapped by Warner Brothers to write the big screen adaption of "A Discovery of Witches". The story follows a witch and vampire who find themselves trying to prevent a war between the two species. I'm not going to lie this sounds like the worst book and movie ever imagined and the thought of having to watch it for the podcast makes me a little ill. So ill that I need to be out that week. Please update your calendars accordingly.

Hey did you know that Michael Berryman is in Rob Zombie's "The Lords Of Salem"? Me either! Man I love coffee.

In Real People News: 

Here's an article that's in Russian, I think, but the jist of it is a kid was arrested after trying to steal an MP3 player. Where did he hide it? Up his ass of course. I'm still trying to figure out what the Russian word for "ass" is but I know it's in the article somewhere.

And here's a story about one particularly frisky Papa John's employee who has been fired after he noted an order was for "Lady Chinky Eyes" on her receipt. Maybe I should talk to the manager at the local Panera Bread because they keep marking me down as "fat ass who always gets two sandwiches for himself"...

Snapshot: "The Devil Inside" (2012)

The new year brings the next in a long line of found footage films that are coming our way. Director William Brent Bell of "Stay Alive" fame brings us "The Devil Inside," a movie about demonic possession, religion, science and mental illness. The good news: This one actually looks like it might be pretty promising. The movie is about a woman named Isabella who is trying to find out the truth behind an exorcism performed on her mother years ago that resulted in the murder of three people.

I hope you all got what you wanted for Christmas. Or if you didn't I hope you threw a hissy fit in front of your family about it. Either way I hope you had a splendid day.

Have I made any INXS jokes yet for the movie "The Devil Inside"? Let's pretend I haven't for a moment. Because I got some really hilarious quips about the twist at the end being that the demon that's possessed the girl in the film is actually Michael Hutchence. I just can't remember any of them right now. But here's a new red band trailer for the film, which honestly is going to give me nightmares. And not the normal ones I always have about INXS either.

Do yourself a favor, leave your leftover cranberry sauce on the counter for the next three days. Then eat the entire thing and watch the trailer for "Door Number 8", a new film from Telugu film, which is apparently a language. I'm not going to bother trying to explain what the movie is about. I think it's got something to do with a haunted house. Maybe not though. All I know is the trailer is insane and made me feel like I was back at Woodstock. Not the hippy one, the one where Limp Bizkit made people burn other people.

This can't be good news for "Wolf Creek 2". According to a recent report the film's major investor, Geoffrey Edelsten, is filing a suit against the films makers. He claims he never would have put up his cash if he had known he was going to be the biggest and single private investor on the project. I guess he's quickly realizing he's not going to see "Avatar" money any time soon. Silly man.

And finally here's the news you've all been waiting for. The first single from "The Hunger Games" by the one and only Taylor Swift is online and ready for you to enjoy. You're welcome, world!

In Real People News: 

You ever sit next to your significant other on the couch while she's on the laptop and think, "if she goes on Facebook one more time I swear to god I'm going to shoot her". No, me either, but this guy Pennsylvania does, and he did. Fortunately for her he's a terrible shot.

Waking up to a man beating my wife and I with a tiki torch is nowhere close to getting on my bucket list. Hopefully it was on this couple's from Oregon's list though. Or else they were probably really pissed.
