First and foremost, I’d like to thank everyone from All Things Horror Online, for not only linking my site, but also for managing to track down a copy of Dead Hooker in a Trunk. They had a screening of the film down at the Somerville theatre, and I don’t want to give anything about the film away, but I will say it was gleefully fucked up, and if you are a fan of independent films and horror or b movies, you should track it down and watch it when it comes out on dvd. They screened a few short films before Dead Hooker, and one in particular, entitled Side Effect, was really messed up. Also, during the month of October, the folks at All Things Horror Online will be having screenings every Wednesday of all sorts of stuff, so if you’re in the greater Boston area, come check it out.
Now, I know I said I’d be talking about everything horrific, but the last two posts have been simply about writing, and themes in writing. I plan to try and post more horrific and fucked up things, so don’t worry your pretty little heads off.
I wish I had more to tell you this week, but I haven’t finished any books or seen anything that scary since Dead Hooker on Wednesday. I did watch The Mothman Prophecies again Thursday, and that movie creeps me the fuck out. Likewise, the story of the Mothman is quite chilling on its own. I love cryptozoology. Just the concept of entities and creatures science has yet to be able to discover intrigues me.
I read that Guillermo Del Toro wants to cast Tom Cruise, for his adaptation of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness. I will not mince my words here, I think this fucking sucks. Likewise, I read that the script for ATMOM completely cuts out the underground city in the Mountains mentioned in the title, and that Cthulhu just randomly shows up at the end. Seriously, what the fuck. I had such high hopes for this film, and they are quickly being beaten to death against a rock, like a fish recently reeled in from the ocean.
I’m going to try and see Machete this weekend, and if I do, of course I’ll let you darlings know if I liked it. I mean, I’m obviously going to wank it to the film (sarcasm), but I do hope that its good for more then some quality T n A parading around the screen. If I wanted that, I’d just watch porn.
One final note for all you readers out there. Initially, I was planning to post all my visuals, like trailers and pictures and the like, only on Fridays. However, after some careful consideration, I’ve decided to scrap the idea. I mean, if I see a really bitching trailer for a movie on a Thursday, why the hell shouldn’t I just post it that Thursday?! See, you have no good answer!
Until next time, you sure you don’t believe in ghosts? You went up to wash your face, and you saw the reflection of something in the room behind you, walking by your bed. And, when you left the bathroom to go back to bed, you noticed that it was noticeably colder by the bed than in the bathroom. Which is strange, seeing as how it is ninety degrees outside. Perhaps, they just want someone to talk to. Let’s hope so.
