New TV Spot For “John Carter”

Civil War vet John Carter is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior.

Cool Image Of Barnabas

In the year 1752 Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England, to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass, and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet — or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Brouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire and then burying him alive.
Two centuries later Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles.
Also residing in the manor are Elizabeth's ne'er-do-well brother, Roger Collins (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter, Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger's precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David's new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.

My rant for today is about Artificial Sweeteners


     Back when I was younger there was a craze that went on about artificial sweeteners and how they would revolutionize the food industry completely, until it was found that the man made substitute was seen to cause cancer in lab rats and later human test subjects. Now that was almost 16 years ago or longer. Now here we are in the first part of the 21st century and once again companies are slinging artificial sweeteners like there is no tomorrow, why?
     Corporations and Healthcare providers are trying to kill us off and what better way to do that than to make us kill ourselves by thinking we are doing something healthy by getting rid of all that nasty and unhealthy natural stuff like cane sugar or fructose’s.
     Now I have no harden proof that they are doing this but I do no that in all the years that research has gone on the science community has not been able to cure one disease, not even the cold. The medications they hand us that they have designed and the FDA has approved cause more harm than good. The liver is always the first to go and when it does then game over! Anyway back to sweeteners.
I do not think for one minute that they have done anything different to make artificial sweeteners safer on the body or easier for man's system to process. The only thing they did was pump millions upon millions into research on how to market it better so that we will think it is better or improved.
     This seems to work because no threw up a flag and cried foul when they began promoting these new  sweeteners. Without any question or protest slowly these evil little chemicals have found there way into everything from sodas and chocolates to medication and foods. I can taste the difference. The difference is a bitter almost dry after taste that as a strong fake flavor that reminds me of bubblegum flavored plastic or some crap! They no that we are so overwhelmed with mass produced media and information and schedules and complete sensory overload that before we can think about what we don't like or trust about a product that we have been hit with the next task or responsibility along with newer and more improved products soon we forget about even eating or drinking the item that tasted funny or that it was an artificially sweetened product.
     I feel these fake sweeteners penetrate the body's system through the digestive tract and embed in our cells and form free radicals and even set out to destroy the very DNA and RNA that we need to build new cells and new tissues and blood or heal ourselves naturally. This is why I will never again purchase another damn thing in the check out lane that yells out in fancy and cheeky marketing words and colors “TASTES GOOD AND IS GOOD FOR YOU”. This is a crock of stinky shit. If it is designed or manipulated by man to look, taste, or feel natural then it is bad for you and will kill you, probably.
If it is nature made and uninterrupted by man, left in its natural form for your healthy pleasure then that is the product that is good for you.
     Stay away from artificial sweeteners, they are there to kill you and are evil!

My Review Of "Alien Raiders"

imagesFor me “Alien Raiders” was an homage to classic alien horror of the 80’s with films like “The Thing” “Xtro” and “Night Of The Creeps”. The kind where the species is more of a virus or infestation and builds from human DNA to return from extinction on a new planet. Those kind are more horror than sci-fi because the alien becomes more that the creature from outer space. It morphs into a monster and brings out deeper fears in humanity – the fear of one another.

This film attempted quite well to blend those classic aspects of alien horror with a more modern guerilla warfare in middle America. A group of people become renegades on hunt to track down an alien species that are bent on taking over earth by infection and gestation with human as the host.

This film picks up as the story is already in motion for the characters which can be confusing to the viewers sometimes however in this pic it stays smooth and understandable. There is almost a subdued overture to the film due to the constant Christmas muzak in the background and lethargic profiles of several of the cast. Here is the set up: a group of renegade hunters take over a supermarket in a small town while tracking down an invading alien species. It almost seems like a generic robbery by the over-dramatic until they hit the store and the employees realize that something is off about the gunmen. The harsh cruelty of the assailants sends the remaining store workers into a  panic and fear becomes the emotional norm throughout this film.

The action and acting in this film was plausible and fluid between the actors as they battled wits back and forth over the cruelty and importance of the situation. The scenes were well thought of and seemed almost unrehearsed much like a one take scene set up. The action doesn’t stop from moment to moment with blood and screams and back and forth between the alien hunters and hostage negotiators and aliens busting out of bodies and store personnel dropping like flies.

The special effects on this film were thought out they actually put the money in the right place with using organic and true special fx such as blood guts and prosthetic and such instead of depending on CGI like a lot of small films do these days. I think that is why I like this movie so much. It will be timeless were as most of the CGI stuff always seems dated.

The film didn’t attempt to force feed the story on us with a lot of backstory dialogue other than what was necessary and was perfectly weaved with what was happening in the now. The actors didn’t over act or exaggerate their characters which makes the film easy to sit through with annoyances and they didn’t compensate on any absurdities with ridiculous unnecessary humor.

All in all this is a great alien film to watch over and over and I feel they should carry it into a low budget franchise. Plus it happens during the Christmas season, Dec. 20th to be exact so it is a good film for Christmas time to watch. The store is decked out in holiday d├ęcor. Really enjoyed this film.

With a little bit  “American Werewolf In London” this is one cool horror comedy and notice how the werewolves are a cross between Yeti and the classic Wolfman except on steroids…I like this wolfie almost as much as the British nightmare scenario of Underworld wolfies.

My Review Of 2008’s “Stag Night”

Four men out on a STAG NIGHT in New York prematurely exit an underground train after the soon-to-be-best-man begins to hassle two women. Trapped at a deserted station these six adults become the target of a gruesome manhunt when a secret gang of cannibal dwellers, living in the tunnels discovers them. Tensions will rise as they fight to make it through the night with all their limbs attached.

I am almost ashamed that I waited this long to see “Stag Night”. For some reason I just never got around to watching it until two nights ago. Wow. This film was furious and stressful to watch. In a good way. I first thought it was going to be lame because of the set up. A group of guys out for a bachelor party thing. Thinking it would be another rich kids on wrong side of town flick I flippantly sat down to this film and began having my nerves shot and my mind knotted.

First of the film is shot in a very gritty and visually dark manner similar to "Mimic". The golden shadowy glow that makes me think of candle light for some reason. Anyway. It becomes more like an urban legend on steroids. The concept of a whole barbaric and viscous world under the city were what comes down gets eaten is raised to a high energy fright train of a ride for this group of guys who along the subway ride meet up with a couple of girls and things don’t go as planned.

The film kinda starts a little slow at first but as soon as they step off the train and release their error this little flick does not let up until the very last second of the film. The action is fast paced and intense. The drama is in your face and truthful to the experience if it really could happen. You would actually feel this is how you would act. Well me I would have worked like a mother fucker on that damn chain and lock on the abandoned station doorway until it fucking broke and got my sorry ass up and out.

One by one the characters are chased down and brutalized in a flat out gore rich pounding from psycho hyper-disturbed cannibal homeless clan. This is fear of the tunnel people amplified. Use to be rats, gangs, regular subway homeless and the occasional C.H.U.D. was all you had to worry about but now you have blood thirsty amped up cannibals ready to run you down and gut you like a pig.

The story was great. Little dialogue other than necessary to convey terror and  heavy on the action and violence. The cast made you believe every gut wrenching moment of there nightmare tunnel trip. This film is a great horror tale spun from urban legend that I am truly ashamed to say I missed when it came out. Glad I took the time to sit down and watch this flick.

“The Helpers” painfully alleviate our miseries.

Part “Hostel” and part “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” this is to a film that brings terror and human emotional extremities to the brink of what is imaginable. If you consider films like “Hostel” and “I Spit On Your Grave” torture porn and not part of Horror then this film is not for you. I can watch most of it…These films keep me anxious and stressed which is what I like and the most it does is make me cringe if I pass a group of young people on the street. I like being scared so that is just a small bonus moment from lingering effects of films like this.

Check out the teaser trailer….
Seven friends, three couples (Claire, Todd, Jordan, Brandy, Ryan, and Anna) and their tag-along buddy Phil from Sacramento, California, all decide to go on a trip to Las Vegas. Phil decides to document their entire trip. (there is a longer detailed synopsis at Dread Central but it is spoiler heavy which they worn before you read about it).

“Munger Road” Some urban legends shouldn’t be explored

We all come from towns with urban legends and ghost stories.

Clip from “Shattered Hopes” True Story Of The Amityville Murders”

It's time to revisit America's most infamous "haunted" house and the crime that inspired "The Amityville Horror."
SHATTERED HOPES goes inside the Amityville, and specifically DeFeo family story, like no film before it. The film, with a total running time of 6 hours, is divided into a 3-part trilogy -- something that is a bit unique for documentary narrative.
PART I • FROM HORROR TO HOMICIDE - A brief recap of the events that made the story famous, before launching into the history of the DeFeo family. Along the way, we hear from close personal friends and a narrative of others who were involved, in some manner, in the case. Part I brings us to the catastrophic events of November 13, 1974.
PART II • MOB, MAYHEM & MURDER - From the start, Part II is a marathon of narrative by those who investigated the DeFeo mass murder. It is a vivid recounting of the murders, the events that followed in the hours after the discovery of the body, and we segue into the justice system that would come to prosecute Ronald "Butch" DeFeo Jr. for the crime.
PART III - FORENSICS & FRAUD - Part III engages the viewer with an in-depth forensic autopsy of the case while exploring the hoax that evolved as "The Amityville Horror" and put the village of Amityville forever on the map.
The film features nearly 20 interviewees, all associated with the case in some manner.

Another Educational Moment From “Cold Sweat”

A delirious old school horror picture with the most memorable villains in years at its core, Adrian Garcia Bogliano's COLD SWEAT was a huge hit at SXSW thanks to its creators' wild imagination and sense of showmanship.

Sid Haig Looking Pilgrim-y in “Lords Of Salem” Image

I have to say everything that Zombie does is awesom..His music and his films are in a class all their own with visual and culture prominence that really should be considered its own sub genre in horror. So I am eagerly awaiting the release of “Lords of Salem” just to see his vision actualized. If it is as commandeering and gritty as his previous films then it will be a fangorefuckintastic picture!
Anyway check out Sid Haig looking like a early American pilgram renegade in this production still…

Later, White plays the Lord's record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with his listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon, Heidi and her cohorts are far from the rock spectacle they're expecting. The original Lords or Salem are returning and they're out for blood.

My Review Of “Hard Ride To Hell”

hard-ride-to-hellAt first when I sat down to watch this film I only barely had expectations for the little blended flick. I went in to the picture expecting minimal story and bad acting that seem to dominate and overshadow a lot of smaller films story and concept. However with this film I was wrong completely. It had an almost Evil Dead cult aspect to it that I felt back when I was a kid and watched that damn evil dead woman fight her way into that cabin. It was low budget and independent and full of energy and the same with this film.

If you like your demon cults and devil worshipers with leather and gasoline then this film is for you most definitely.
The story was a cool through back to films like “Devil Rider” and “Hell Rider” blended with satanic ritual and devil possession and action it is a great exploitation/horror flick.  The acting as a little generic but a few characters pull of real emotion and believability. The effects and action sequences though make up for it. Mostly stunt and organic effects used here with a very minimal cgi other than what is mystically necessary for a scene or two.

The film was enjoyable and I found myself thinking ahead to a sequel coming down the pike maybe for 2012 or something. There is still a lot more story here to explore. However the dialogue could have been a little deeper and fluid with the story. As some characters pulled of noticeable plausibility others seemed to almost phone it in just waiting for a payday.

This film is a good one to see and if biker exploitation horror is a thing your into definitely pick it up. It has everything you may like. I don’t normally go for biker horror stuff but I am not hetero so that pretty much should solve that. This film I liked a lot. It had psycho bikers, satanic worship, mythology, gore, action and possession. So yeah definitely a film for the collection.

Space Jockey Suits

From probably the best creator of a mythos on the planet – Ridley Scott is what is deemed to be nothing comparable to an Alien film and yet the actual possible beginning to the whole “Alien” Mythology. “Prometheus” is a prequel kinda but it can also be seen as a totally independent franchise all together. I plan to place it proudly with my Alien trilogy as complimentary piece.
I always wondered what the space jockey was and why it was never addressed as did almost everyone who watched the first film. Now we will have more of that small piece of footage from the first Alien film expanded and explained for us all hopefully but we could still be the fickle fans of always and be left craving more. I tend to do this with just about everything in life anyway…
PROMETHEUS is out June 8.

‘The Walking Dead’ Trailer for Mid Season Return

I have been dying for this show to come back. It is right up there with ‘True Blood’ as far as quality of the show and the intensity of the story. One of if not the best show on t.v. ever. So finally the day draws near when this show will grace my television screen again and fill my heart with panic and anxiety and total enjoyment of a zombie apocalypse. Check out a clip and the trailer for the return of ‘The Walking Dead’.

My Review Of “Psychosis”

A serial killer unleashes his blood lust at a remote environmental-camp. Years later a horror novelist relocates to rural England and is plagued to the point of madness by horrific haunting of a massacre.

So I finally got around to watching Charisma Carpenter in “Psychosis”.  At first as it started out I thought maybe I had the wrong movie because it looked like a tradition psycho slasher flick however I was pleasantly surprised. After the story took off, the way that the film kept me constantly focused on the deceit of her husband and constantly trying to figure out just what the film was about, it totally threw me for a loop with the ending. Brilliant execution of the story. This was not an easy script to keep cohesive and relatable. At any point the film could have fell apart with all the subtext and micro plots that seemed to flutter about in the telling of this story.

For the most part I felt I was watching a psychological thriller just a bit above Lifetime Movie abilities and constantly wondering what the fuck the beginning had to with fuckall in this movie. It kept me guessing and confused visually as to the characters that played out in the Macbeth styled dance of twisted tales of betrayal and deception. The cinematography was gritty and yet polished with its total control of the film by jumping from micro plot to micro plot. Is she crazy? Is she psychic? or is some people totally fucking with her?! I just kept bouncing back. This turned out to be a really great film and you don’t realize just how intricate and detailed the plot is until the last 15 minutes of the film and that is got me totally into the story and made me drop my jaw. The ending tied it all up so poignantly and perfectly. A great psychological profile of the depths of human psychosis.

Footage from “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”

“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the blood-thirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.”

“The Fades” Season Premiere Saved My Saturdays!

I have been dying for something to dvr for Saturday nights and while ‘Being Human BBC’ is my favorite Brit show ‘The Fades’ has saved me with the premiere of its first season in America. Its premise is this: people die and some pass over but some do not. We have legends of evil spirits and disgruntled departed that are both drown and compelled by the living. So what happens when they become so bitter and angered by there death that they look for ways back into our world? Simple – death becomes life and life becomes death. We fall in ashes and the dead rule realities eternal.
The first episode does the traditional and sets the tone for the season by introducing the main players and the fades which are the dead ones that don’t pass over into the light. Now comes the salvation. Throw in awkward teen with supernatural abilities who has to deal with being a social outcast and the responsibility of saving our world from destruction.  I love it. It delves into the whole origin of evil spirit and resurrection  that I am a sucker for. This show is a great one to keep up with and has saved my Saturdays.
