Photo update on the REMAKE of Evil Dead..

So as we're all aware, Evil Dead is sadly being remade. I've already talked about this before, and I don't understand why this has to happen when the original is perfect, but now a new image has surfaced. Assuming you've seen the original, I'm sure you remember the scene in the original when the first official 'deadite' is put underneath the floor boards [in the trapdoor to the basement] and is screaming constantly.. Also, assuming you haven't seen the original, first; see the damned movie [if you're into horror] it's bloody brilliant [yes,that pun was FULLY intended] and second; allow me to show you a picture [as always, it's found below] 
[And remember, this was back in 1984; talk about visual effects!]
Now, we're in 2012; and with an Evil Dead remake on the way, I would hope that this scene is going to be included. [I'm still pissed that Ash is being replaced by a girl; therefore the whole story is going to be different.. at least, it would be assumed they'd have to change it up; right?] Let me say that this scene is going to be included [fuck yes!] however this new 'deadite' looks like The freaking Grudge ! [wait..what?] You read that right, we're in an era where we have all this technology to make gore effects, and scary creatures; [unless you're The Asylum and your CGI monsters are terrible..yeah, I'm calling you out 'Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus!] and we get something worse--scary wise--than we had 30 years ago?! fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. As I cannot stress how ridiculous this is; allow me to show you the new released picture for the remake, which is supposed to be the same scene as the picture above;
[seriously?! ....seriously.]

I mean, I guess I understand the need for creepy over 'OhMyGodImNeverGoingToSleepAgain' scary, but I mean come on! The new version looks too Grudge-y for my liking, and I feel like that look is becoming as over used as paranormal films [has anyone else noticed the main horror movies lately are related to ghosts or some kind of spirit entity?] I will still see this remake as Bruce Campbell himself states that it's amazing, and that there is hints and nods at the original; [okay, and I'm kinda hoping that Bruce will do a cameo..] but I'm finding myself more and more concerned with every picture that comes out for this; next we'll see a girl with a chainsaw hand.. and then what? Then shit will hit the fan.. [assuming I'm not the only fan who will rage-quit this remake..]
 But enough about me, what do you think? Is this looking too grudge-y for you as well? Do you actually approve of this new picture and think this remake will be amazing? I'm open to opinions; I don't judge- just curious to see if others agree with this picture looking very non-Evil Dead..

Hollywood, You BLOCKHEAD !



Good Grief ! As if Hollywood hasn't run out of ideas already, 20th Century Fox Animation plans on bringing Charlie Brown and the Gang to theaters.. The following, is how it's been posted by the L.A Times [below];  
"Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and the gang are coming to the big screen, as 20th Century Fox Animation and its Blue Sky Studios unit announced Tuesday that they have acquired the rights to Charles M. Schulz's iconic "Peanuts" comic strip.The planned movie, the product of an agreement between the studio and Schulz's heirs, is scheduled to arrive in theaters Nov. 25, 2015. Steve Martino, who directed Fox's "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who," is to direct from a screenplay by Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. Craig Schulz is the famous cartoonist's son, and Bryan Schulz his grandson."We have been working on this project for years," Craig Schulz, president of Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, said in a statement. "We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film."
Truthfully, I don't know what I think about this.. We know that it's going to be CGI animation [considering we haven't seen an actual 2D animated movie in forever!] & it's going to be directed by the same guy who did Horton Hears A Who and the Ice Age movies. Luckily however, the screenplay is being co-written by Charles M. Schulz's [The original Peanuts creator] heirs. Hopefully, it will be done well, as they hopefully will be able to follow through with how their past family member wanted it to be ? Either way, I'm worried as all hell for this; I'm slowly losing my faith in Hollywood- assuming I haven't already. What do you guys think? Do you think it'll be done well? are you worried about this version of Charlie Brown and the Gang? Or are you in good faith that this is going to be done well? Sound off in the comments, or let me know on the Facebook page ! CHEERS

Underrated horror movie of the day; Puppet Master

We've all have those special movies that we consider to be guilty pleasures of ours; whether it's The Human Centipede or even something made by The Asylum; we all have those movies that we can't help but love- even if they are terrible. For me, one specific movie comes to mind, and that movie is none other than Puppet Master. 
[This is the box set of the 9 Puppet Master films I own.]
 Now this movie [or should I say, 'movies'] is all kinds of what the fuck, as each puppet has it's own special ability and way to kill people; [Forgive me ahead of time, as there is a lot of puppets- I'm just going to go through the important ones that I think are pretty badass..] There is Blade, who is pretty well the main puppet who is seen on the cover on the box set above with the knife hand and hook [here's a better picture- below]
There is another puppet who goes by Pinhead, and before you jump at the conclusion that he's a rip off of Pinhead from Hellraiser, be aware that he is pretty well the exact opposite of the Cenobite from Hellraiser. Below, you will find a picture of Pinhead from Puppet Master:

[See? Not even close to our favorite Cenobite..]
 [NOT a Puppet from the Puppet Master Series- figured that should be cleared up !]
Now, at the beginning of this post, I mentioned that this movie is all kinds of what the fuck; and I'm about to explain why. [Please be advised, from here to the end of the post- there IS spoilers] One very specific puppet; known only as Leech Woman has a particular ability. I'm not 100 percent on how to explain it, so I figure I ought to just show you a picture [YouTube is being lame and won't let me post a video..] ;
[Considering this seems kind of weird, disgusting, and maybe a little erotic- I figure maybe I should explain the scene; below]
If you couldn't already tell, Leech Woman is a very special kind of puppet; she's dressed provocatively, she actually moans [sexually] during her entire kill scene and she spews all sorts of nasty leeches.The what-the-fuckery part of all this, is she enters the room and does this to a guy who was tied up, blindfolded and trying out new fetish/fantasies with his lover; and apparently couldn't tell the difference between his lover and a goddamn puppet?! [that is until he catches a glimpse of the leeches] Now, as a quick note before finishing this off; I would encourage every horror fan to see this [even if it's just to say that you've seen it], and note that if you end up enjoying them, like me, there is actually 9 films, and that's not including spin offs such as Puppet Master X, and Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys [FACT: Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys actually has Corey Feldman as the great grandson of the ORIGINAL Puppet Master who created the killer puppets] So there you have it, the long awaited Puppet Master post; if you have any specific guilty pleasure movies you'd like to share; feel free to mention them in a comment. If it stands out, maybe I'll watch it, and I'll post about it next ! Until then though, if you ever have a request for a review, or just got an opinion; shout it out ! I'll be sure to read it. CHEERS !
