Check out this great Horror Blog: I LIKE HORROR MOVIES

Obviously I am a huge fan of Horror. I like to watch Horror movies and read about them, so I am always excited when I run across a Horror blog that I haven't seen before. There are thousands of Horror blogs out there, but when I run across a excellent one, I like to let my readers know about it. Well, I have found a great one, and it is simply called "I LIKE HORROR MOVIES"! What a great title for a Horror movie blog! Straight and to the point!! Like my blog, the blog author, Carl Manes, gives a good mix of reviews of older and more current movies, along with Trivia and quotes. Also worth noting, Carl has a link to his entire DVD collection (over 850 DVD's!!) that you can browse through and look at. What a cool idea! Great blog Carl! Keep up the good work!

For those unfamiliar with the 42ND STREET FOREVER series, these are Dvd's filled with nothing but trailers from the Grindhouse era, when 42nd Street in New York was filled with seedy theaters that ran nothing but grimy exploitation and horror films. This series shows you trailers of these films, some of which you might be familiar with, and many that I'm sure you have never heard of. They are up to Volume 5 of the 42ND STREET FOREVER series, and I have to say that this is the weakest of the bunch in my opinion. Some trailers were so bad I had to skip them and go on to the next one. Now that is bad when I can't even sit through a minute and half to 2 minute long trailer! Volumes 1 and 2 were great with mainly horror offerings, but they have gone downhill since then. There are a few notable trailers that were definitely worth watching, like TERROR IN THE WAX MUSEUM and THE DEVIL WITHIN HER, aka. BEYOND THE DOOR. Click on those titles to watch the trailers.
If you haven't bought any of the 42ND STREET FOREVER films, I highly suggest the first two volumes...all the ones after that are pretty weak. Also, worth noting, they also released a 42ND STREET FOREVER XXX-TREME SPECIAL EDITION, full of nothing but trailers for the trashy adult x-rated films the grindhouse theaters showed along with the horror and exploitation films, so check that out if you are into that. You can purchase all the volumes from Amazon.com buy clicking on THIS LINK.

I recently ran across this extremely disgusting, disturbing, and grotesque trailer for the Japanese film called...well, GROTESQUE! The trailer is not dubbed, so I can't tell anything about the film. Basically it looks like Japan's answer to HOSTEL. Watch the trailer and let me know what you think!

Watch the trailer for GROTESQUE at your own risk!!

In honor of this great day, I present you the fake trailer for the movie, THANKSGIVING, created by Eli Roth (CABIN FEVER, HOSTEL I & II). For thoset that don't know, THANKSGIVING was one of the four fake trailers that played between PLANET TERROR and DEATH PROOF, in Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 2007 double feature film, GRINDHOUSE! The four fake trailers were created and directed by other horror movie vets, and included: MACHETE (Rodriguez), WEREWOLF WOMEN OF THE S.S. (Rob Zombie), DON'T (Edgar Wright), and THANKSGIVING (Roth). For those that missed GRINDHOUSE in the theaters, you missed a great experience. Unfortunately, the only DVD released in the U.S. split the two films and doesn't include any of the trailers except for MACHETE.
Also...on a side note, rumors have been flying since GRINDHOUSE was released that Eli Roth was going to develop THANKSGIVING into a full feature film! Well...a check on IMDB.com shows that THANKSGIVING is indeed listed on Eli Roth's page as being "In Development, so we might get to see a full film one of these days!! In the meantime, enjoy this great trailer:

"Enter if you dare, the bizarre world of the psychosexual mind" is the tagline for the film I CORPO PRESENTANO TRACCE DI VIOLENZA CARNALE, aka. BODIES BEAR TRACES OF CARNAL VIOLENCE, or better known to American audiences as the simple, TORSO. This 1973 classic was written and directed by Italian director, Sergio Martino. Martino looks like he could be a student of Dario Argento, as he has very similar styles compared to Argento's early films from the 1970's. TORSO is a stylized Giallo film, a genre popular among Italian directors during the 70's and 80's. TORSO stands apart from other Giallo films, though, in that we get a little more blood and gore than we do in typical Giallo films. Here is the plot from the Blue Underground DVD:

A series of sex murders shock a college campus, and four beautiful young girlfriends head for the safety of an isolated country villa. But as they succumb to their own erotic desires, their weekend of pleasure becomes a vacation to dismemeber at the hands-and blade-of the lecherous maniac.

A vacation to dismember...ha! I love that line. This is a great film if you are fans of the Giallo sub genre of Horror films. A few scenes stick in my mind in particular. One is a woman being chased through a muddy swamp by the killer. When the killer finally gets to her, all we see is her arm in the muddy water, and slowly, the red blood flows into the murky brown water. Very effective. Next is a scene in the vacation house when the only surviving girl is looking from an upstairs bedroom down to the 1st floor living room, where 3 of her friends lie dead at the hands of the killer. The killer enters the room carrying a saw. From her angle, all she can see is the woman's arm. Slowly, the arm moves back and forth, back and forth, and while we can't see what is happening, you know the back and forth motion is caused from the saw. These scenes are very effective and the entire movie is an experience I highly recommend.

Must watch: Sam Raimi Lost Film: ATTACK OF THE HELPING HAND

For those that don't know who Sam Raimi is, shame on you! Sam Raimi is the director of the EVIL DEAD TRILOGY, DARKMAN, the SPIDERMAN films, and most recently, DRAG ME TO HELL. While searching one of my favorite horror blogs on the web, Evil Dead News.com, I found this great 8mm short film shot back in 1979, 2 years before his great EVIL DEAD film. You can see some similarities in the two films and it is fun to see how far Sam Raimi has come as a director.
Check out the Sam Raimi's short film, ATTACK OF THE HELPING HAND:

One of my favorite Horror films from the 80's was Kevin Tenney's NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, about a group of teens that go to a Halloween party in an abandoned funeral parlor. While doing a seance, they awaken evil spirits that take over the teens one by one, turning them into vicious demons. The original starred fan fave Linnea Quigley as Suzanne. Well, 21 years later, we have a remake of this Horror classic! The film stars Bobbi Sue Luther (LAID TO REST) in the roll of Suzanne now, and also stars screen vets, Edward Furlong and Shannon Elizabeth. Also...watch for a cameo by Linnea Quigley herself!! Check out the trailer below, I think this looks to be one of the better remakes we have seen in a while. What do you think?

Must Watch Webisode: BROKEN TOY

My buddy Scott let found this online and let me know about it. It is a web series called BROKEN TOY. Episode 1 is out now and is definitely worth watching. It is only about 5 minutes long. I wish I could tell you what the plot is, but it is really hard to tell...I think we will figure it out as we go along with future episodes. The episode opens with a man covered in blood making eggs in someones house....he apparently is a machine of some sort that has malfunctioned. That is about all I can tell...not sure if this is going to veer more towards Horror or Sci-Fi, or a good mixture of both, but either way this is very intriguing. Let me know what you think! I will post an update once Episode 2 is released!

This weeks Horror related DVD releases

Here are the Horror related DVD's coming out tomorrow, 11/17:
(click on titles to watch a trailer for that film)


I haven't heard much about any of these films, there are a few that look interesting based on the trailers. Check out EVILUTION if you are a zombie fan (like myself). THE CANYON looks like a promising bit of survival horror. PENANCE looks......well...interesting I guess would be the word. TAINTLIGHT is a TWILIGHT parody that looks like it could be the worst movie ever made. Actually, watch the trailer for THANKSKILLING, it might actually be the worst movie ever made....it's about a killer turkey. Yes, you read that right.

Check out the trailer for the horror/comedy TRANSYLMANIA

TRANSYLMANIA stars James DeBello (CABIN FEVER, SCARY MOVIE 2) and a group of others as college kids who go to study abroad in beautiful...Romania! Apparently, they find out the school they are studying at is run by Vampires!! This movie looks really dumb, but in a really so dumb it could be really funny type of way. The movie is rated R and has a theatrical release date of Dec. 4th. Watch the trailer and then let me know what you think.

Happy SATURDAY THE 14th!

Everyone knows about FRIDAY THE 13th, but do you know about a little film called SATURDAY THE 14th? As you might expect, it is a horror/comedy spoof. The film came out in 1981 and was one of the funniest movies I had ever seen at the time (give me a break, I was about 8 years old when I first saw it). I'm sure if I watched it now, I might feel different about it...based on the trailer I just watched anyway! Click below to watch the trailer for yourself....have you seen this film before?

Wow...when will I learn. Director Jess Franco is considered a cult director, kinda like Italy's version of Ed Wood. Except Ed Wood's films were so bad that they are at least fun to watch. Jess Franco's films are so bad they just really suck. Known as SEXO CANIBAL in it's native Italy, THE DEVIL HUNTER as it is known here in the U.S. came out in 1980 and was Franco's answer to the jungle/cannibal genre that was so popular at the time, in the likes of films such as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and CANNIBAL FEROX. Here is the basic plot of this suckfest known as THE DEVIL HUNTER:

A Vietnam veteran heads to an island inhabited by cannibals to save a kidnapped model not only from her kidnappers, but also from the cannibals' lurking Devil God.
Speaking of the "lurking Devil God"..that sounds pretty cool...but all it is a big African American man with crazy red bug eyes who walks around buck naked and fights people. Here is a pic...I will spare you the full body shot!

While Franco does have some good films (mainly his zombie movies), this is definitely not one of them. I highly suggest you don't bother with this film unless you have 102 minutes to kill and there is no paint drying on any wall in near proximity to you .
