Book Review: Geddy's Moon by John Mulhall

Geddy’s Moon is John Mulhall’s debut novel, which he began working on over twenty years ago as a teenager. This tidbit of knowledge is extremely important, as all his efforts and years poured into this project definitely paid off tenfold.

Trailers: "FDR: American Badass" has werewolves, Barry Bostwick

Holy 'effin crap. A thousand times yes to this. The film's currently in post-production, so do your best to contain yourself for a few more months before we can see it. Also, if you're at work, make sure to put headphones on, unless the sound of someone screaming "FUCK POLIO!" is ok at your work. If it is, please let me know where I can direct my resume...

Hyenas (REVIEW)

On very rare occasions a film will leave me speechless. Sometimes, it’s because the film was so good. The first time I watched “No Country for Old Men” I sat in the theater for five minutes just soaking everything I just saw in. Sometimes, a movie will be so crazy and off the wall I’ll be stunned at what I just saw. “Eraserhead” comes to mind. But this was a new experience for me. This was the first time I’ve seen a movie so bad on so many levels, that I’ve been stunned that I just watched what I watched. Make no mistakes, “Hyenas” is a complete, abject failure.

Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of October 21, 2010

A lot of movies get added to Netflix's Instant Stream every week. Luckily for you, I'm here to dig through what's new and highlight new releases that may be of interest to BGH readers. Halloween is right around the corner and Netflix is really ramping up the horror releases. Tons of stuff this week. And without further adieu, joining the ranks of the Instant Stream this week are:

Amityville II: The Possession (1982)
At the risk of losing some nerd-cred, I have to come clean: the only Amityville movie I've ever seen was "Part 3D". Checking this one out.

Retro Trailer: "Ginger Snaps" (2000)

"Ginger Snaps" is a quirky, fun werewolf movie. It's certainly no "Twilight", but unfortunately, not every movie can be a masterpiece. All sarcasm aside, the 2000 Canadian film directed by John Fawcett, offers a different take on the whole werewolf flick, as the film uses lycanthropy as a metaphor for puberty. Teen sisters Brigitte and Ginger (Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle) are awkward high school outcasts who are obsessed with death.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday March 9th, 2010

Universal Studios is toying with a new attraction, namely a new 3D King Kong ride named "Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World". Here's hoping for more 3D Naomi Watts and less 3D Jack Black.

Straight from the 'a sequel to what?' news desk; directory Harry Bromly Davenport let slip that he will be releasing a sequel to 1983's "Xtro". On the bright side, it's an actual sequel and not a remake!

Columbia Pictures is starting up the "Men in Black 3" hype machine as they begin to throw around names for the planned sequel. Thrown around so far are Josh Brolin, Sascha Baron Cohen and Jemaine Clement of "Flight of the Conchords" fame. None of these names are a lock however, just a listing of who the studio hopes to snag.

Nerd goddess Felicia Day has signed on to Syfy's "Red", a modern day retelling of "Little Read Riding Hood". Swap out the innocence of a little girl going to see her granny with Day's family who makes their living hunting werewolves and that's your plot.

In Real People News: 

Wang Cuyun was a simple grandmother trying to prevent a demolition team from tearing down her house. Her plan worked well until a member of the crew beat her with a stick, dumped her unconscious body into a ditch, then buried her alive with a bulldozer. Sadly, Ms. Cuyun didn't survive the ordeal.

Prince William's comely girlfriend Kate Middleton failed her first test for her future of protecting the crown jewels. After the Prince gave her a pair of antique pearl studs for her birthday, she found herself sifting through dog poop trying to find them when her pet cocker spaniel swallowed them whole.

On this day in history: 

1997 - Notorious B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace) killed in a drive-by outside the Soul Train Music Awards in Los Angeles.

Horror Headline: Thursday January 28th, 2009

Actress Zelda Rubinstein, best known for her role as Tangina in Tobe Hooper's classic "Poltergeist," died of natural causes on Wednesday. She was 76.

Have you longed to feel the rancid breath of a giant ape on your face as he leaps over your head to attack a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex? If so, you're in the luck. Filmmaker Peter Jackson has helped Universal Studios relaunch their "King Kong" theme park ride, which will open its doors this summer. Remember to pack your banana hammock.

The first trailer for Capcom's upcoming live-action adaptation of "Dead Rising" has appeared online. It's cheap, it's ugly, and it's extremely violent. In other words, I'm giddy with excitement.

Anchor Bay recently announced they have acquired the rights to Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo's "After Life," a new horror/thriller starring Christina Ricci, Justin Long, and Liam Neeson. When this thing will see the light of day is still anybody's guess.

In Real People News: 

What do 18 year-old female werewolves do for fun? For starters, they use pocket knives to severe the heads of lost dogs. Time permitting, they boil the skulls.

I'm no parent, but I'm pretty sure strapping your baby to the wall with duct tape isn't in the instruction manual. Neither is documenting the event with your digital camera.

When you're hanging out in the parking lot at the local mall, the last thing you expect is to be savagely attacked by a wandering cobra. Destro was not immediately available for comment.

On this day in history: 

1977 - Freddie Prinze commits suicide at the age of 23.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll Shriek... of the mutilated. You can blame Mark for this.
