Yeah, I know we haven’t done anything on this site forever. We’ve been busy/lazy, blah blah blah blah. Well here’s something that I can post that requires almost no effort on my part, so I can continue on my with my blatant disregard for our 6 readers.
Director Michael Dougherty, the man behind 2007′s Trick ‘R Treat, has released a quick two-minute video for FearNet that briefly features Sam, the evil doll/ghoul from the film. It rides the line between adorable and morbid quite well and definitely makes me want to watch Trick ‘R Treat again. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out (along with this new clip). It’s something to hold you over until Trick ‘R Treat 2, which is still in the works.
The guys over at Pajiba threw together a pretty cool mash up video of the 100 greatest horror movie quotes of all time. It’s a cool concept that I wish I had thought of and I’m sure it took a hell of a long time to put together. There are some movies that appear multiple times and there are so many others that were omitted but I dig it anyway. What do you think? Which quotes do you love that didn’t make the cut?
Happy Halloween everyone. Since I’m going out tonight (and you should be too), this meager post will have to suffice. I was going to compile this list myself, but about 400 people beat me to the punch. I present to you, a top 20 Michael Myers kills video as featured on GorillaMask. I think they did a pretty good job but the Halloween IV shotgun kill is a glaring omission. Don’t get too too wasted, kids. Never mind, you can.
On his MySpace page, Rob Zombie recently revealed the new mask for Michael Meyers in the next installment of his Halloween remakes bastardizations. Here it is:
I don’t have too much of a reaction toward it either way- the shot above here seems like it is taken from the end of the film after he gets a good beating from Laurie and Loomis. I suppose one thing about Zombie’s remake of Halloween that I didn’t take offense to, was the mask. It’s creepy and it maintains the original idea fairly well. Yes, there it was. I actually made a compliment about that movie- you probably won’t see that happen again.
Anyway, Zombie also noted that he would answer 10 questions from fans about Halloween 2. I have a few:
- Is there any way that this movie can be stopped?
- No? Shit. Ok, can you make the run time under 90 minutes?
- If you really have to release this film, can you ensure that Sherri Moon Zombie will have no screen time whatsoever?
- Do you think you’re going to do anything but anger genre fans by making Michael Meyers mask-less for 70% of the movie? (Yes, if you haven’t heard this already, Zombie has confirmed that Michael will spend most of the movie looking like a white plumber with a ZZ Top beard. And yes, that picture to the left is actually Michael in the new movie.)
- Can any cliches be held off until at least the 15-minute mark?
- Can this be the last Halloween movie that you make?
- You don’t really think you’re re-inventing anything here, do you?
- What horror franchise to you intend to destroy next?
- Can you just re-release “More Human Than Human” in some remastered version instead of making this?
- These questions were pointless, weren’t they?
Right. Also, to counter the argument that Zombie’s Halloween reboots should be viewed as a different film series- that’s fine with me. I can view them as their own series and so far, what I’ve seen has been trite, cliche garbage filled with over-the-top gore and not an ounce of creepiness. Slice it however you want, folks- at the end of the day, Zombie’s movies still suck. Anyway, H2: Halloween 2 is slated for an August 28th release. Who wants to come be tortured with me?
Thanks to my girlfriend for finding this gem. Check out the Everything Is Terrible Youtube channel for more hilarity.
