From slashers to demons, cult to mainstream, mad scientists to monsters, fright to fun, and old to new, it's (almost) all here.
“Horror takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but horror ensures that it’s there to be seen.”
“When did the horror genre go from trying to scare your viewers to trying to make them sick? Poop isn’t scary, it’s just icky.”
As soon as I saw the Friday the 13th video game action figure by NECA I thought two things… “My god that video game was awful.” And “I need one of those action figures.”
I’m glad I bought one because it’s a great figure with great packaging. Very original idea. The figure is better than the game ever was. NECA did a fantastic job as usual.
But in doing so they opened the flood gates and now you’re seeing the NES Jason everyfriggingwhere. Everyone is taking a cool, original idea and going into overkill mode… whatever overkill mode is. And me being me, I was immediately annoyed by all of the excess 8 bit Jason Voorhees crapola.
That’s because NECA will be releasing a full size glow-in-the-dark replica mask based on the awful game that nostalgia has tricked us old fucks into liking. It will apparently have a special box as well. I’m guessing based on the cover for the game. Unlike many people, that’s where mine will remain.
There’s bad news… it won’t be out until November, so it’s obviously a no go for Halloween.
Check it out here.
So this is happening for a week. My old ass saw this in the theater when it came out… I was 8. I may have actually gone twice. Please, if you can, please go see it.
Does anyone know if Chiller plans on releasing Animal on Blu-ray or DVD?
"There’s a legend around here. A killer buried, but not dead. A curse on Crystal Lake, a death curse. Jason Voorhees curse. They say he died as a boy, but he keeps coming back. Few have seen him and lived. Some have even tried to stop him. No one can. People forget he’s down there, waiting."
I’m so bummed out that Jason X exists.

Definitely You’re Next
Some honorable mentions… if you wanna count Coraline, I absolutely loved the living crap out of that one. I also enjoyed Hobo with a Shotgun. Then of course Hatchet II was fun. And if you wanna count it, ParaNorman was good too.
There’s still a bunch I haven’t seen, so this could change. I have owned Tucker and Dale vs Evil, The Conjuring, Hatchet III, and The House of the Devil since they were released… but I need to get around to seeing them.
I’m also interested in seeing Animal, The Cabin in the Woods, and Insidious. I’ll have to pick those up.
Sorry, I tend to not shut up when it comes to horror, hockey, and the Ramones.

That’s actually a great question. I’d have to say The Evil Dead trilogy. If that doesn’t count as a series then I’ll go with the Halloween series. None of them are really intolerable except for Resurrection.
Oh man, I wanna make a top five list now.
You guys can always send me asks. I’m always wanting to talk horror.
Freddy Krueger as our 80’s Jerk of the week
The only one I don’t like here is Hellraiser.
