TRAILER FOR ELI ROTH’S ‘THE GREEN INFERNO’
Eli Roth returns to the director’s seat for what looks to be an homage to Cannibal Holocaust. The end of the trailer says it was filmed on location in the rainforest of Peru and the native tribe featured in the movie has never been filmed before. Also, Green Inferno sounds like a pretty decent name for a strain of weed, just saying.

Mishka Double Feature: Army of Darkness and Ghost World

Leave it up to one of my favorite clothing companies to present a clothing line on two great films: Mishka has officially released a line dedicated to Ghost World and Army of Darkness. The line consists of t-shirts, baseball tees, long sleeved shirts, pullover hoodies, snapbacks, and fitted New Era caps. Super dope stuff, this line will step that style up for sure.

'The Birds' by Stuart Patience

I absolutely love this. London-based illustrator, Stuart Patience, created a series of illustrations inspired by Hitchcock’s infamous classic film, The Birds. The illustrations are very detailed and convey a certain sense of terror anyone can appreciate and adore. Peep more of stuff here.

Silent Night: Creepy American Christmas-Decorated Houses

Berlin-based Finnish photographer, Markus Henttonen, recently revealed his Silent Night project, in which he photographed Christmas-decorated houses in America 

He comments:

In this series I am more interested in the empty streets, the houses fully decorated outside and so still in the night. In my pictures the focus is on the feeling and stories, at the same time it is my story, the viewers´ story and the story of the whole society

The photos do give off an eerie feel to them, seemingly appearing empty and looking like houses featured in horror films. Definitely give off a creepy vibe.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Film On the Way
This is some news I wasn’t expecting at all. The 80’s/90’s horror book, Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark, will be converted into film soon. CBS Films has accepted a pitch by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the two writers responsible for Saw.
No word on who will direct, which of the stories will be included in the film, or really anything else right now, but this is exciting news, nonetheless.

Why George A. Romero Won’t Direct An Episode Of ‘The Walking Dead’
Interesting bits from a conversation the godfather of zombie horror had with The Big Issue.
When asked if zombies will ever lose their appeal.

Not in my book! Once they bleed out of pop culture I’ll be able to go back and do them again. I don’t want to touch them now. Gosh, they are all over the place.The Walking Deadis the number one television series in the States,World War Z, games, commercials… Ugh! It’s too much!

So, in a nutshell, zombies are currently too mainstream for the dude who made them famous and he won’t make any more zombie movies until they aren’t cool anymore.
When asked how it feels to be the father of zombies.

It feels like I don’t have a horse in the race. They asked me to do a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead but I didn’t want to be a part of it. Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism and I find that missing in what’s happening now.

Okay, sorry Mr. Romero, but A.) the tension between human characters in the face of the undead onslaught is was made me fall in love with your movies in the first place and B.) there’s kind of a shit ton of zombies in The Walking Dead. As for zombies being used as political criticism, that doesn’t become obvious until the end of Night of the Living Dead and maybe halfway through Day of the Dead. If anything, The Walking Dead turns the concept of a zombie apocalypse into a microscope examining the primal core of what makes us human.
Maybe he turned it down because it’s like having your hot ex-girlfriend’s trendier, more attractive new fiancé ask you to make a speech at their wedding reception. Or… maybe he actually meant all those things he said. What do I know. I’m just a blogger who watches TV and occasionally masturbates way too much. And by occasionally I mean all the time.

Conan Plays PC Horror Games

Little late on this, but this is too great not to share. I love Conan O’Brien and his Clueless Gamer segments in which he plays video games he has absolutely no knowledge of. Iin celebration of Halloween, Conan’s playing the spooky stuff. Conan plays Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Slender, and Outlast. Super great video on awesome PC titles you should pick up for a spooky night.

A Vincent Price Ring
Why not? Horror movie icons deserve to be jewelry at one point of their legacy, so why not have a crafted ring made out of Vincent Price, the man who talked over Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” (yes dude, that was him speaking on that track), starred in the original House of Wax and House on Haunted Hill, and had a sick ass mustache while being the coolest villain of the older Hollywood scene. The ring was apart of an Indiegogo fundraiser in which artist, Paul Komoda, put up for grabs if you donated to and aided with his “living expenses.”

Evil Dead 4 Is Happening
It doesn’t matter what has been said by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Ted Raimi in the last 10 years over the Internet and during countless convention panels — Evil Dead 4 is really happening. Sam Raimi said during a press event for Oz the Great and Powerful that he has interest in returning to the horror series and he and his brother will be writing a script this summer.
In London, Raimi stated during a Meet the Filmmakers event:

I would love to make Evil Dead 4. My brother and I plan to work on the script this summer.

Really this time, guys. He straight up said it. No beating around the bush or sugarcoating anything, I really think Evil Dead 4 is going to happen.

90’s Nostalgia: The Tales from the Crypt Saturday Morning Game Show

So when I was five years old, Tales from the Crypt was a pretty fucking huge deal for HBO. My father always watched it and I was kind of always around to squeal or run away from his television set while it played, but the memories and nostalgia always lingered of the Crypt Keeper and his fucked up tales of horror. But something crossed my mind the other day and I don’t think many people remember this, but do you remember the Crypt Keeper’s gameshow?

I hardly do. With the help of Google/Wikipedia/YouTube, I’m watching it over and thinking: How in the fuck did this crazy ass Saturday morning children’s game show air, of all networks, on CBS? And how did it last for one year?

The show was called Secrets of the Crypt Keeper’s Haunted House, and it involved kids going through physical challenges, Legend of the Hidden Temple style. They had a section of the challenge titled “The Swamp From Hell and used a shit ton of bad CGI to animate it.

Thanks to a user on YouTube, an episode is on the Internet to peep in three different parts. I guess the uploader, bojibbles, was a contestent on the show. Enjoy this hidden gem with me, because my brain doesn’t want to shit bricks alone at remembering this show at random.
