How I’ve never seen this movie is beyond my comprehension. I am a bit disappointed that the tagline wasn’t “He’ll scare the pants off of you!“. I’m grasping at straws though with that. What we do have here is great marketing because this poster makes me want to see the The Invisible Maniac. It does look like the movie could be a bit rapey though, so that’s always a downer. I do kind of want to see that girl on the floor wrestle with a fire hose though. Fun fact: Pornstar Savannah starred in this movie before she rose to fame in the porn industry, after which she committed suicide. Sorry – that wasn’t very fun.
My only regret regarding last years hilarious horror mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows was that it took me so long to see it. It pretty much shit on most of the crop of horror movies that came out in 2015 as far as being original and entertaining….AND it stayed true to it’s horror roots in the process.
So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I figured why not give What We Do In The Shadows a little love? It deserves it, and one of my favorite scenes is when Viago shows us how he likes to spend an evening with a lovely young lady while on a date. A lot of blood and comedy ensues, so if you need a starter course as to why you should watch this movie – click the link below and enjoy!
I have to admit that I’ve become a bit obsessed and fascinated by the folklore involving Krampus, the horned and hoofed creature that would come around at Christmastime to torment bad little girls and boys. Had I known about it as a child, I probably would have behaved much better considering the alternative if Krampus ever found me. No child wants to be stuffed into a burlap sack and dragged away to a cave to be eaten. And now finally, we will get a proper movie version of the story, thanks to writer/director Michael Dougherty, appropriately titled Krampus.
Well that looks like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?!? For those living under a rock for the last 8 years, Michael Dougherty wrote and directed the AMAZING Halloween anthology movie, Trick ‘r Treat. And if you’ve seen that (and shame on you if you haven’t), then you can see his stamp all over the Krampus trailer stylistically and with the tongue-in-cheek humor.
We haven’t had a really good Christmas horror movie in a while (Rare Exports was good, but more fantasy than horror in my opinion), so Krampus will be welcomed with open arms when it’s released in December. Hopefully it will live up to the hype of the trailer and of the poster below, which somehow reminds me of another Christmastime horror movie called Elves. Let’s just all hope that the comparisons stop at the poster for that one. Look for Krampus in what will most likely be a small theater run (although I’m hoping for a bigger one) on December 4th!
As far as Siamese twin horror movies go, Basket Case is on the top of the list. It’s a short list that pretty much only contains Basket Case, but that’s nothing to sneeze at and is an accomplishment nonetheless.
So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, it only feels right to give some shine to Belial, our favorite little monstrosity that lives in a wicker basket that his brother Duane carries around in the 1982 horror/comedy Basket Case. Only problem is that from time to time, Belial likes to hop out of his basket and play. His version of playing is carving you up with his fingernails and then tearing your insides out to round out the fun. He’s quite a character! Case in point – the clip below:
One of my worst memories as a child was excitedly running through the park by my house to get to my favorite swing on the playground. That’s not the bad part – the bad part is when I unknowingly stepped on a bee and got stung. Oh the pain that I would incur for about five agonizing minutes was torture to a young boy. And ever since then, I was terrified of bees.
Which brings me to the real point of this post, which is to share with you my anticipation for an upcoming horror/comedy that centers around bees (more specifically: wasps) called Stung.
Lance Henriksen? Giant Killer Wasps? Lance Henriksen?!?! Now, I’m more than willing to push my fear of bees to the side so I can sit down and fully enjoy Stung when it’s released later this year. Obviously it’s not to be taken seriously and is definitely more in the horror/comedy range instead of straight horror. Watching this trailer honestly makes me want to go watch some other giant killer bug movies like Ticks and Mosquito. Get ready for Stung to come buzzing to theaters (sorry for that bad pun) sometime later this year and early reviews from screenings have been positive so far. By the way, did you know that if you do ever get stung by a bee, you should put a mixture of baking soda and water on it? It diminishes the pain and hardens the stinger so it pops out. You learned something today!
Move over Zombeavers….there’s a new unnecessary, but awesome, horror movie on the block. I have to caution any of you though if you have Gnomophobia: The paralyzing fear of garden gnomes. A new horror/comedy called Gnome Alone…..yes, it’s called Gnome Alone…..is about to be unleashed on DVD and Digital HD on January 20th and it stars none other than Mini-Me himself, Verne Troyer as a wise-cracking killer garden gnome.
Well I knew there would be bad puns galore here, but what I wasn’t expecting was to actually be creeped out by Verne Troyer as a garden gnome. And apparently, creepy garden gnomes love to play tricks like putting chickens in your car. You kooky gnomey bastards. For those wondering, the plot for Gnome Alone revolves around a college student who is involved in a bad hit-and-run accident where the dying victim gives her…………oh who gives a shit. It’s a movie about a killer garden gnome. That’s all that you really need to know.
Time to loosen up the belt buckle after eating 15 pounds of turkey and stuffing with heavy gravy and give thanks for a few things. And what am I thankful for? Well I’m glad you asked! Because here are my five things that I am thankful for this year. Continue reading →
How could you not be interested in a movie about a creepy guy who wants to turn a podcaster who comes to interview him into a walrus? Unsurprisingly, writer/director Kevin Smith has admitted to coming up with the story to his upcoming movie, Tusk, while being stoned. And now we luckily have a bat-shit crazy trailer to give a taste of what his weed-induced mind has conjured up:
Obviously more in the horror/comedy range than straight horror, Tusk looks like loads of fun. Shades of The Human Centipede are evident, but what Kevin Smith has come up (at least from the trailer) looks like it will definitely be in it’s own lane. I dig Justin Long, and seeing an older and more plump Hayley Joel Osment is a nice surprise – but it’s another name that is being associated with this movie that’s causing a bit of a stir. Johnny Depp. That’s right folks, Johnny Depp’s in a movie about a guy trying to turn another guy into a walrus. Hopefully that upped your anticipation a little more as it did for me. Kevin Smith’s Tusk will be out on September 19th – stay tuned for more info and reviews rolling in soon!
Believe it or not, punching your fist through someone’s head can have it’s downside. It might get stuck, and in turn, make your hand very uncomfortable. Especially when a guardian of a key containing the blood of Jesus Christ is playing a game of cat and mouse with you.
Welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday where I’m spotlighting one of my favorite horror guilty pleasures of all time: 1995’s, Demon Knight. My love for this movie deserves it’s own separate post, but I’ll give you a delicious taste with a scene that really kicks things off in the movie. And that scene would be when Billy Zane’s character puts his fist through the head of the local Barney Fife. Hilarity ensues as he tries to get it unstuck, and the result is a headless town sheriff. It happens more often than you think.
Happy Holidays! It’s the last Sunday Bloody Sunday before Christmas, so why not feast on this clip from the 2005 horror/comedy, Santa’s Slay to get you in the mood for the 25th?
Obviously more comedy than horror, Santa’s Slay is pretty fun because it knows what kind of movie it wants to be. And the opening scene sets it up perfectly, and for some reason Chris Kattan from Saturday Night Live is there. But more importantly, Fran Drescher gets her scalp burned off and is drowned in a bowl of egg nog. Oh, and screen legend James Caan gets a turkey leg jammed down his throat too. Enjoy!
