The Bloody Judge (REVIEW)

For most of Jesús Franco’s first 15 years of filmmaking he was contending with a powerful set of artistic limitations manifest most precisely in the fascist rule of Francisco Franco. While Jess, as he is more commonly known, left Spain for more habitable film production locales the specter of Franco’s rule seems to revel itself in the director’s oppositional, iconoclastic relationship with cinema censors.

Snapshots: Sid Haig fits right into "Lords of Salem"

A lot of Hollywood directors have their "stable" of go-to actors. For instance, Adam Sandler casts Rob Schneider in everything, presumably because they touched swords once at summer camp and he doesn't want him to tell anyone. Rob Zombie has gone in... a different direction. Creating his own traveling side-show of B movie actors who scare the shit out of me in real life. Does that translate to the big screen? Sometimes? Either way, he posted this pic of Sid Haig in "Lords of Salem" to his Facebook, and now I'm posting it here. Isn't the internet neat?

Paranormal Activity 3 (REVIEW)

"Paranormal Activity 3" takes viewers back to see where the activity began.

After a legitimate breakout and a strong follow-up, it was safe to say that we're now stuck with "Paranormal Activity," for better or for worse. And while that type of success is usually a recipe for Hollywood studio scrimping and laziness, this series may mark one of the first instances where producers have managed to grow a series both in ambition and quality as it progresses.

From Within (REVIEW)

A small southern town is plagued by a rash of suicides and no one can figure out the cause, despite the efforts of the local evangelical ministry in town that's investigating. The first suicide to kick off the pattern is the elder of two boys. Their mother has long been known to practice witchcraft, much to the chagrin of the local Christians. They distrusted her so much, that eventually they burn her at the stake. With Aidan being the last of the witch's family line all eyes turn to him when talk of someone to accuse for the plague starts up.

Horror Headlines: Monday March 23rd, 2009

Here's a cool new poster for "Martyrs", the French film which I'm sure you're all getting close to sick of hearing about. Featured on the new quad are a handful of quotes from some other horror sites, which is always a cool thing to see, even if John Shelton's name is conspicuously missing from it ;)

This is a teaser for "Freddy Vs Jason Vs Ash: The Nightmare Warriors #1 and it's pretty kick ass. Just think, instead of the remakes we could be seeing this action on the big screen. Such a shame.

Alyssa Milano will be doing the vocals for Sigourney Weaver's character in the upcoming "Ghostbusters" game. That's what you call a "boner upgrade" my friend.

Variety reports on why the original poster for Park Chan-Wook's "Thirst" was banned in his native Korea. You can take a look at the comparison at the link. The original is a little sexier, but the revamped version actually turned out visually more interesting. Go figure?

Shawnee Smith to return as Amanda in "Saw VI". The producer also says it will be "a lot more violent than the previous five". Um... okay. All I want to know is when will they bring Tobin Bell back as a zombie, because we all know that's the logical place this series should go.

In Real People News: 

Company in Thailand markets "Ghost Repellent Machine", which "uses a camera to capture a ghost's image, then bombards it with their Wave Killer technology. Sure your wiener shrinks as a side effect, but your home will be ghost free!

Having successfully rid Gambia of "all the gays", their president is now trying to get rid of all the witches. In this topsy turvy world, it's at least good to know that a politician somewhere is getting something done .

Man kills wife because she interrupted his "drinking time". I have nothing to say about this that won't be incredibly offensive, so you'll have to pen your own finely crafted jokes.

On this day in history: 

1989: A 1000-foot diameter asteroid misses the Earth by only 500,000 miles. (Astronomers did not see it until it passed.)
