Manson’s role in his new film calls him for a new band! This is what the producer of Pressman said at Cannes:

“Marilyn is a death metal rocker, which is a different kind of music than he’s known for. He’s going to form a new band for the film… that would record or tour for this new entity.” He also said, “Evan is one of these two Splatter Sisters. They’re… totally alienated from their families, who are not good to them, and they take on a vagabond life. They’re on the road… to go to Hollywood. They’re fans of Marilyn’s band and become indoctrinated under his spell in the movie.”

Now this sounds freaking cool! I wasn’t intrigued about the idea of the film when I first heard about it(click here) but this just made me interested. I am not that big a fan of Manson’s music but there are a couple of his soundtracks that I love wholeheartedly(“If I Was Your Vampire” being the most favorite). I’m not also a fan of death-metal(I keep it to rock, groove, nu, thrash metal & Eminem!). Still, I will be waiting to see how he takes on the genre.

What do you think about this?

Okay so this a new addition to this blog, script reviews. I love reading unproduced horror scripts, they show originality in one way or another. I read this one a few days back but couldn’t post a review because I’m very busy until 28th May, anyways I decided to keep the script reviews short(’cause I have ADD).

Written by Henrik Holmberg.

Plot: A everyday nice guy(Seth), seems to have everything in his life, a wife he loves, the perfect job, a reliable buddy and etc etc. His life turns upside down when he replied a spam mail. The spammer seems to be desperate, so Seth’s buddy decides to mess with the spammer but it doesn’t go too well because unlike other spammers this guy seems to be pushing the envelope a little too far.

Review: The script never feels like a horror until the end, more like a psychological thriller. It was definitely a good read for me cuz time flew by when I was reading the 83 page script. The elements in it does peek into disturbing territory at times but never goes too far, keeps it simple. Yes there’s cliche dialogues but I feel like it was intentional of the writer. The ending was sorta predictable but good nonetheless, it introduced some blood to the otherwise tame script. And despite his annoying dialogue, I liked the character of Seth’s buddy(Rob). So, I’m not sure how good it’ll do as a feature film(probably pretty good) but I had a good time reading it.

Ah I loved Hatchet. Adam Green did something outstanding with that movie. I loved Joel Moore in the film but to our surprise, he won’t return for the second film of the franchise. But there is good news, one of my favorite horror actress will be playing Marybeth, Danielle Harris, I love her to death. I’m hearing great things about Hatchet 2 and here we get 2 new posters of the film(thanks to dreadcentral):

Click on the images for a bigger view.

And to my surprise, this looks rather bland!! Just 2 Hatchets? That’s a total ripoff of the first poster lol. But I do think they look really really cool and I’m going to forgive the “ripoff” angle here because this is just a teaser.

Share what you think!!!

Here’s another horror film update of Marilyn Manson(& Evan Rachel Wood). But this is a new one. ‘Splatter Sisters” is advertised as a squashed genre film, sexploitation-slasher. Adam Lough wrote the screenplay of the film and David Gordon Green is set to direct. The director says: “This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play and with Evan bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level.”

So, I like Marilyn Manson. And with his depth of weirdness, I believe he might just be a horror film gem in the rough. I don’t really like the idea of this film, but we’ll see.

Share what you think.

Okay, this is the first time I’m breaking down a trailer like this and shared the things that excited me the most. Machete is a exploitation film based on a fake trailer. Directed by Robert Rodriguez. This trailer got me interested in the film.

Cast: Danny Trejo, Robert Deniro, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagle, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Mareen, Don Johnson.


So these stuff happened in the trailer, is between the time I mentioned and onwards. I posted the trailer below! Watch it and share what you think.

02:23 Machete. The End of the trailer.

So, I’ve been a little slow on the posting, I’m going through a busy time 😛 Anyways, this is a project of ‘Laid To Rest’ director Robert Hall. I really want to see Laid To Rest, 2 of my most liked horror blogs have given it a genuinely attracting review. I’ll watch it any day of the week now. Here’s his latest project and the following paragraph is totally from the original post from BloodyDisgusting:

Director Robert Hall (Lightning Bug, Laid to Rest, “Fear Clinic”) is gearing up for his latest horror endeavor that takes a new spin on the great 80’s metal myth. Old Scratch follows Neven, a washed up musician living his his own faded shadow in Atlanta. One night, after another sparsely attended gig one his his former bandmates Terry shows up and playes one of their own demo records backwards with fatal consequences. Now He must return to his roots and revisit a past he had hoped would stay forever buried. He has to find all six cursed demo records and decipher the eerie hidden messages before more blood is shed. We got our mitts on the official teaser that features Thomas Dekker (Laid to Rest, All About Evil, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser, and Kevin Gage (Chaos, Laid to Rest). What do you guys think?

Yeah so this idea is supposed to attract me! Check out the teaser trailer(which, by the way, I LOVED):

Share what you think.

By the way, Lamb Of God rules!!!(totally random).Randy Blythe is the shit!

Just Whoa! Here’s the thing, I’m really forgiving on movies, especially horror movies, but rarely do I call a film PERFECT. In my opinion, this is that type of rare gem. That’s why a little heads up before the review. Stay Tuned.

I also have another bit of news, sad news for me. I’m going through a busy time and that will lead to, me being slow on posting the whole month. I’m also getting behind on watching movies for this month. I’ll be back with more after 28th May, and by more I mean horror video games, scripts, books and comic book reviews!!!

Keep loving the genre!

Look what I stumbled across on Shock Till You Drop! The whole post I will write directly from the original post because originally I don’t have much to write, you’ll know why. Before that, I will say one thing. I’m a sucker for horror anthology, Trick R’ Treat, which I was lucky enough to see last year, was an anthology and it was one of the best horror flicks I’ve seen in a while. Enjoy! The plot actually sounds badass.

Sexual parasites, disembowelment, zombies, serial killers, demon children, violent vixens, rabid office workers and angry embryos all rear their heads in Slice of Life, a new anthology film from writer-director Anthony Sumner and writers Eric Richter and Alan Rowe Kelly.

In the film, Mira (Kaylee Williams) awakens in front of a seedy roadside motel with amnesia. She searches for clues to her identity in the pages of three bound sketchbooks, in which each book represents a different aspect of everyday life, maybe her life.

In “Work Life,” a lowly clerk at a nano technology firm unleashes a deadly virus at the office headquarters, giving new meaning to the term corporate zombie. Local girls begin to disappear in “Home Life” and a young pregnant woman is haunted by visions of evil demonic children hell bent on stealing her unborn fetus. Finally, in “Sex Life,” a young brother and sister on the run from a sexually abusive home life, take refuge in a countryside Victorian manor – only to discover the monsters hidden in this house have been looking for a new home.

Convinced that the characters from these books are roaming around the motel, Mira’s reality begins to crumble. Are these visions real or is she going insane? Desperate, Mira turns to the motel caretakers (Marv Blauvelt and Helene Alter-Dyche), only to discover the true evil bound in the flesh covered books and the destiny they hold for her.

Oh my god! Sounds promising, what do ya think?

Here’s a quick post. It’s a poster of George Romero’s latest zombie-flick ‘Survival Of The Dead’. Check it out and what do ya think? :

https://i2.wp.com/www.dreadcentral.com/img/news/aug06/sideshowfvsjbig.jpgYes, I’m taking sides here! Platinum Dunes it is. And I certainly don’t get the point why people likes to bash on’em so much. I am pretty sure y’all are laughing at me right now but the following are the reasons why I think it is totally unfair to do so.

I am not a fan of this “remake” thing. I personally think at the rate it’s progressing, we’ll see a Hatchet remake in 2 years! But I’m not totally against the idea. I like old movies being remade, I just want’em to slow down.

See, let’s be practical here. None of the films they remade are masterpieces. Okay maybe Texas Chainsaw Massacre is, but I don’t get the bitching as the remakes were pretty damn strong. And Amityville Horror? Friday The 13th? Elm Street? At the end of the day, they are just a bunch of simple well-done film. I’ll rant with Friday The 13th because I haven’t seen Elm Street(2010) yet, and saw the others a few years back so it’d be a pain in the ass to remember properly.

I’m gonna be honest, I loved Friday The 13th remake. No way was it a perfect film but it was a damn good slasher. Why do we hate on it again? Oh yes:

1) Why is Jason a weed farmer?

-Give the guy a break! It’s not like we are all perfect, and being in HIS line of work we are lucky he didn’t smoke onscreen. And it’s not like he is a sleazy pervert who molest kids(!!). Okay, all lame jokes aside, this is ridiculous. I have no idea how this is even an issue.

2) Why Jason kidnaps people?

-I understand the hatred, we don’t want our beloved Jason to dig girls that remind him of his “someone”, we want him to kill people. But after all, it’s a re-imagination so you gotta let’em change something. And in the countless awful sequels, they’ve done MUCH worse.

3) Why is Jason so good with a bow?

-Ah! come on. It’s not like he’s walking around in corn-fields(cough *Halloween 2* cough) all day and night. He is Jason, a legendary character, so if Wolverine can run around naked(lol random I know), Jason can shoot some arrows.

Okay, my post made no sense, I’m still an amateur so you gotta let me have it. My point is, it did the other things right that we wanna see in a slasher. We get some bloody, messy and gruesome kills. Some of them are tricky and awesome. Yes, gratuitous nudity(of one of the hottest girls) if that’s what you perverts are craving for!!!!(hey don’t look at me!). Minor cliches obviously, we get some familiar characters but that’s the fun in slashers. Except maybe the original, the remake was better than all the films of the franchise.

And look at Halloween, look what Rob Zombie did to (possibly) the best slasher film of horror film history. And, My Bloody Valentine 3-D was one of the cheesiest films of last decade. To my surprise!!, Platinum Dunes had pretty much nothing to do with them!!! The Uninvited was a decent enough film and The Crazies and The Last House On The Left was great. So, no I’m not biased if that’s what you are thinking. I won’t stand here and say Sorority Row was a good film, as we all know it was nothing more than eyecandy. But it was SO FRIGGING BAD that it was fun!

So I will stop talking now. I just wanna say it doesn’t hurt to give some older films a shiny new look, if we notice a little too deep, we are just nit-picking and these small things barely even matters. Everyone’s opinion is correct, that’s what an opinion is. And I’m not here to change that, you hate The Amityville Horror, fair enough, say that with a high tone but don’t bash on it immaturely, because it looks to be a trend these days.

P.S. Fuck horroryearbook.com and their immature fag jokes. I don’t get it, everyone can pull off a few couple of gay jokes. Heck! I do it occasionally. They just say the same weird shit over and over again and I personally think they are full of shit.
