The Deer behind the SACRED DEER

A couple of weeks ago I posted my review of the odd, off-putting yet overall excellent film THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER. At the time of my viewing the movie, and my subsequent reviewing of it, I had no idea what the title meant, as there were no deer in the movie. I have…

Interview with a Sanguivore

At some point in the future, people will point out the title of this post and remember it as being “Interview with THE Sanguivore” and claim its alteration is proof of the Mandela Effect. The same way they do with Anne Rice’s INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. (Or did it used to be INTERVIEW WITH *THE*…

Happy Anniversary, Zombi!

Some have said it is the greatest zombie movie of all time, even superior to George Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I would have to agree that it is just as good, or damn close. This is ironic, since it is something of a rip-off of that first film. Lucio Fulci’s ZOMBI was released…

Jason-Os Cereal

No, Jason from the FRIDAY THE 13TH film series doesn’t drink blood. He isn’t a vampire. He IS a zombie, though. Or was in three of the films. (Parts six through eight, in case you didn’t know. Six and seven are two of my favorites, along with JASON X and the original one.) That’s close…

Tree Stump Tombstones

Why are some gravestones shaped like tree stumps? Admit it, you’ve always wanted to know the answer to that question. I know I did. Actually, that’s a lie. Truth is, I never noticed that there were a lot of headstones shaped like tree stumps. If I ever noticed one in that form at all, I’m…

Inside the Big Black Sarcophagus

That big black sarcophagus unearthed recently in Alexandria, Egypt? The one dating from the Ptolemaic period (something like 305 BC to 30 BC), measuring a massive six-feet high by almost six-feet wide and almost nine feet long, the biggest ever found in that area and one of the largest ever found, period? The one some…

Will THE WALKING DEAD Survive?

The title of this article is rhetorical. I have no doubts that the show will survive. I have accepted that, as with THE SIMPSONS and the scourge that is AMERICAN IDOL, THE WALKING DEAD will NEVER leave television. No, the real question should be, how much will it change? We know that there’s going to…

BUFFY Getting Rebooted

I’m gonna go ahead and say, so all of you remember that I said it, okay? So I can claim it when it happens. I say this: It ain’t gonna work. Not even with Joss Whedon as a producer. The lightning in the bottle that was BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER can’t be duplicated. If I…

THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES Goes To HuLu

This is terrible news. Terrible. It might not be for you, but it damn sure is for me. It has been announced the eagerly-anticipated TV series based on Anne Rice’s VAMPIRE CHRONICLES books will be going to Hulu. F*cking Hulu. I would have expected one of the prominent cable networks. Nope. No such luck. F*cking…

Do Sanguivores Have an Extra Chromosome?

No. Oh, you wanted more? Fortunately I have more to offer, so I will oblige. I have to give credit to my friend Alexia over at The Red Cellar for bringing this to my attention. The claim, that is. Alexia does not profess or believe the claim; she merely mentioned it. She dismisses it as…

Sony Sinks SLENDER MAN

We could subtitle this article “How to shoot yourself in the foot.” Or, even better, “Sony is really, really, really stupid.” As if we needed any more evidence that the suits in the offices are completely out of touch with reality. And stupid. Why would a studio take a guaranteed moneymaker and then try to…

Undead Bread

The dead are rising. And so is the yeast. Hey, that’d make a great catchphrase for a chintzy Horror flick, wouldn’t it? Something that Full Moon and Charles Band would make. It would probably cross over with their Gingerdead Man series at some point. I’d watch it. So we have Zombie Bread this week and…
