  • Horrific Dissapointments

    The new Pinhead was anounced today, and he, well, he isn’t fucking Doug Bradley, and he looks like a big dumb oaf if I was to be honest about it. I’ve never seen the actor in anything, but I highly doubt he will be able to fill the shoes of such a great talent as Bradley.
    I’m depressed about the state of horror nowadays. Everywhere I turn, all I see are dissapointments.
    It seems that the only hope, is the independents, a small percentage of the current Hollywood genre attempts, or, the foreign horror films.
    Maybe I just want too much from my scary movies, like, to actually be scared. My Soul to Take looks abysmal, and The Ward doesn’t sound like its going to be any better. Don’t even get me started on Argento. The Third Mother was one of the worst damn movies I’ve ever seen, and I don’t know if I have the resolve to sit through Giallo.
    At least Dog Blood by David Moody is delivering the goods. I have that be thankful for. I’ve read a number of genre books, by authors who will remain nameless, which didn’t even leave me with any type of impression. They just washed over me like the tide, and when I was done with them, all memory of their plot and characters went as well.
    Please, Clive Barker, can you finish a book, so I can actually be scared again? Or, maybe Stephen King could go back to writing scary tales, instead of flat out dramas. Maybe that’s too much to ask.
    I need a drink.
