With still little to no news on the upcoming Friday the 13th film/TV series/reality show/Real Housewives of Crystal Lake nonsense, I stumbled upon this amazing looking project over at Kickstarter…

If that doesn’t tick just about every frickin’ box for what I want out of the next Jason film… Full moon, campfire, skinny dipping, “did you hear something”-style dialogue. Step back, producer folk, you almost recaptured bits of that in 2009, but if it can be rendered in a game, y’all can do it on film!

The downside is that Pac Man is about my limit when it comes to ‘gaming’, so this will likely go right over my head. Sad times.

From the beginning of March, VeVo and his dog will be taking to the roads of Europe for a year or so in this beaut of a van (named Scooby):

I’ve given up my job, rented out my digs, and entrusted three boxes of DVDs to a storage locker.

Thus, frequent and strong WiFi or Jeepers Creepers-esque highway psychos notwithstanding, updates may occasionally be lax. Or boring.

Never fear, I’m still here (or there, or wherever) with a book of unreviewed DVDs along for the ride, so in some shoddy form or another, I WILL NEVER LEEEEAVE YOOOU.

Happy Halloween!

Be safe n’ all that shizz…

I’ve not been that thorough in covering the Halloween series around here, which is curious as I do love it so.

One day I’ll get round to reviewing the original (and the first sequel), but until then explore what there is if you will…

The films reviewed:
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers
Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later
Halloween: Resurrection
Rob Zombie’s Halloween
Rob Zombie’s Halloween II
Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (documentary)

Other stuff:
Twists of fury: Halloween: Resurrection
God forgive me, I like Halloween: Resurrection

Ka-ching! Don’t O.D. on candy.

Today I love… Halloween: Resurrection (God forgive me)

Halloween: Resurrection… at the time of writing it has a 4.0 rating on IMDb and everyone moans how crap it is. But not me, no! I can’t help it, there’s just something about it that I like…

  • It’s not Busta Rhymes’ sorry excuse for acting;
  • It’s not the beyond-ridiculous Twist of Fury that is the explanation for Michael being alive;
  • And it’s not the stupid ‘murder’ of Laurie Strode (notice that her fall is partly broken by tree branches?)

It’s the slashtasticness of it… As a dead-teenager Halloween-set stalk n’ slash film, it’s just super fun.

  • The slayings are bloody and archetypal of the genre;
  • The final girl is remotely aided by a room full of over-acting teenagers;
  • The theme tinkers along when needed;
  • It’s more than well enough made;
  • And it’s still about 10,000,000 times better than the Rob Zombie films;
  • Tyra Banks makes this face:

There, pool your cash resources and get me therapy.
