Alien novelizations

Posted in aliens, Books, SciFi on July 16, 2014 by chrisdsav

Alien

Alan Dean Foster the author has written more book adaptations of screen plays than any other author I can think of.
We could go thru the list but it would fill so many pages
If you want the full list go here

http://www.alandeanfoster.com/version2.0/frameset.htm

One set sent to me by Titan Books is the ALIEN books mainly films 1-3 all black with sleek covers, ALIEN is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. Lots of companies are getting behind the anniversary and their is a new video game coming out in Oct.

Alan works from the original scripts and published the novel before the movie ALIEN came out. Now this is usually done to drum up interest in the film it self.
A lot of the time you get extra cool bits of info the author may make up about the characters to help flesh them out more or its some scene in the script that got cut form the movie it self.
Its rare you see reissues of books based on movies ALIEN happens to be that kind of GREAT franchise to warrant such a treatment.

Last year I got the Graphic Novel of ALIEN re-released to me from Titan books by Archie Goodwin and Walter Simonson. The original festches big bucks on ebay.

Catherine Mary Stewart

Posted in aliens, entertainment, Horror Babes, movies, music, SciFi on June 29, 2014 by chrisdsav

Tonight on the show we have actress Catherine Mary Stewart from Night of the Comet and The Last Star Fighter, as well as the morbid comedy Weekend at Berrnies, Everything has a Horror connection lol.

I will discuss the new Transformer movie Age of Extinction, the return of True Blood, and the trailer for Dracula Untold, which looks really cool, I fly solo tonight as Pam could not make it in.

On the show tonight Hugo Nominated author and long time friend of the show DAN KIMMEL. We will be discussing all the genre films these coming months, and Roger Kastel, the painter behind the iconic images of Jaws and The Empire Strikes Back and so many more.

The Twilight Zone

Posted in aliens, Comic Books, entertainment, Monsters, SciFi, tv on June 19, 2014 by chrisdsav

It’s been 55 years since Rod Sterling gave us one of the most beloved and first anthology tv shows of all time.
This show was ground breaking for its time.

I first encountered it when I was a little kid in the 80’s and didn’t understand half of what I was watching. It was the most bizarre thing I had ever seen at the time. That music can really spook you as well.

Twilight Zone lives on thru a well received comic book series thru Dynamite Entertainment. The dvds of all the episodes can be found on Image Entertainments site. If you don’t want every episode then pick up this essential collection two disk set.

Some of the episodes are
The After Hours, It’s a Good Life, To Serve Man, Nightmare at 20,000 feet, The Living Doll and more.

Mini Horror Reviews

Posted in entertainment, Goth, Horror Babes, Monsters, movies, SciFi, websites on June 3, 2014 by chrisdsav

Way of the Wicked
Vinnie Jones and Christian Slater star in this supernatural thriller. Jones plays a cop and Slater plays a preist who have to solve a bunch of murders after a troubled teen played by Jake Croker, returns to town and Jones Daughter played by Emily Tennant gets involved with him. The teen exhibits psychic kenetic powers which he uses to defend him self. It’s a slow character build supernatural drama. It’s well shoy and not boring. The focus is alot on the kids. The director Kevin Carraway will be on the show soon.
It’s worth checking out if you enjoy these type of films. It’s not the exorcist but it’s not the Devil’s Due.

Nurse
Worst movie I have seen in years why is the sex more important than the horror in this movie YUCK, This is like SHowgirls for Horror fans.
nuff said

Devil’s Knot
I didn’t know anything about the West Memphis Three till about a year ago when the three suspects were released from Prison. This movie staring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth is the first movie made since there release. Reese plays the mother of one of the missing boys. Firth is the detective trying to put the peices together and stop a community from putting blame on kids suspected of Devil Worship. Its a great look at a story that gripped the nation back in 1993 and again in 2012 when they were released and found innocent. The killer may still be out there kind of story really resonates with people cuz it makes you wonder where that killer went many years later. The movie also stars Elia Koteas and Stephen Moyer form True Blood.
devil

In the Blood
Ever want a real kick ass movie staring a female and most of them are really lame, or we have to wait till Lucy comes out in August to see what Scarlett Johansson will give us. Well here is a new flick for you.
Gina Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter with a dark past. When her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers a violent underworld of conspiracy in the middle of an island paradise. Armed with a deadly set of skills, Ava sets out to discover the truth – and to take down the men she thinks are responsible for his abduction, one by one. Its reall y good and got some kick ass fight scenes in it.

Roger Corman’s Frankenstein Unbound
So John Hurt goes back in time and uses his futureistic no how to hell Victor Frakenstein create his famous monster.
Yeah sure, only from Roger Corman. I mean come on its not as weird I Frankenstein and I actually kinda of love hate that movie lol. Its sooo bad its good.

Alien toys

Posted in aliens, Monsters, movies, SciFi, Toys on May 21, 2014 by chrisdsav

Re-Action toys has the Alien figures, a great homage to older toys from the 70s. At Toy fair we learned of some new figures coming from them all with that 70s style of toy.
Super7 Store sent me The Alien and Ripley , other figures are Ash, Dallas and Kane. Not sure if they are making the other characters in to toys. They look like the toys Kenner put out for Star Wars. The card the toy sits on also has that feel of old school toys. It be cool if they made the Nostromo ship to go along with them.

Gojira (1954)

Gojira_1954_Japanese_poster

Starring: Akira Takarada, Momoko Kôchi, Akihiko Hirata, Takashi Shimura, Haruo Nakajima

Directed by: Ishirô Honda (Rodan; Mothra Vs. Godzilla; Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster)

Synopsis: So Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla) is basically chilling in the ocean, minding his own business, when atomic bomb tests annoy the crap out of him. But he uses the radiation he’s absorbed to his advantage, coming up to the surface to beat down some boats. Of course, the humans get their panties in a bunch about it, so he decides to really  teach them a lesson and bust up Japan.

What works: I’ve really only seen bits and pieces of this movie over the years and never really sat down and watched the whole thing in its entirety. What I’m reviewing here is the original, subtitled Japanese version sans-Raymond Burr. I’ve always been a fan of the character Godzilla, but I admit to only seeing most of his movies…

RIP H.R. Giger

Posted in aliens, Goth, SciFi on May 13, 2014 by chrisdsav

Its a sad day for Alien fans, famed swedish artist H.R. Giger died today he was 74 years old. He desinged much of what we love from the Alien films as well as Species. Image

Giger, who was born in Switzerland in 1940, was renowned for his bizarre, surreal art, mixing technology with organic, sexual with horrific. Giger won an Oscar for “Best Visual Effects” for his design of the Xenomorph in Ridley Scott’s Alien. He recently worked with Scott on 2012′sPrometheus, providing original designs.

Easily recognizable by it’s trademark “biomechanical” style H.R. Giger’s artwork evokes a strong sexual tone and is largely inspired by night terrors that he suffered all his life.
Though it was certainly the terrifying design of the Xenomorph that would catapult him into the mainstream and inspire leagues of designers and artists for decades to come.

POSEIDON REX

Posted in Horror Babes, Monsters, movies, SciFi with tags , on April 1, 2014 by chrisdsav

Cant wait till GODZILLA in May, how about a giant sea monster movie staring Brian Krause (Leo from Charmed) and the smoking hott Anne McDaniels. Five mins into the thing I was the worst CGI for a MOVIE ever , for a video game it was top notch. Not every film can be a winner. The poster looked cool. What I don’t understand tho is the Dinosaurs in Jurassic Park 21 years ago still hold up today. The performances were ok, the CGI was just bad bad bad. I like Brian tho and hope to have him on the show soon, I was a big fan of his character from Charmed. Cinematography was really good, and that’s where a lot of these sci fi monster movies shine. Just put more effort into the CGI. OR how about NO CGI your making a fucking MONSTER MOVIE go crazy cut a actor or two and spend the money on a rubber monster something real and silly, I would rather have that than BAD CGI.  

A small, secluded island off the coast of Belize suddenly finds itself terrorized by a deadly predator from the planet’s distant past, when deep-sea divers accidentally awaken an ancient evil. Jackson Slate and his team of underwater cave explorers unearth much more than long-lost Mayan treasure while plumbing the depths of a world famous blue hole. They disturb a creature that’s been hibernating for over 60,000 years – a rampaging behemoth of death and destruction not only at sea but also on land.
