RIP Leonard Nimoy

Very Sad to hear the passing of LEONARD NIMOY aka Spock from Star Trek and Galvatron from Transformers, and so many other roles he will be missed

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Mr. Nimoy announced last year that he had the disease, attributing it to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.

Spock

He will always be Mr.Moundshroud from the Halloween Tree

Comic Book Spotlight: DEMOGOBLIN

Posted in Comic Books, Demons, superheroes on February 27, 2015 by chrisdsav

1418530-demogobin__1_
OK so I kind of did one of these last year when Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out and we covered The Gentleman.(don’t bother reading it that whole story line Sony created will go no where now that they cancelled Amazing Spider-Man 3 and the Sinister Six movie.)
SO now were going back to Spider-man once again with more of a Horror theme covering The Demogoblin
Created in Spectacular Spider-Man #147 by Sal Buscema and Gerry Conway.

After losing fights with Spider-Man and the Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man #312, Jason Philip Macendale Jr., aka the Hobgoblin, took advantage of the Inferno crisis. (a X-Men Crossover that spread throughout the whole Marvel Universe, the closest we have come to a Massive Horror crossover event in the Marvel Universe.) Following several demons back to their lair and confronting their demonic lord, N’Astirh. N’Astirh was so amused by this human he granted his wish and unbeknownst to Jason grafted a demon to his soul and transforming him into the Demonic Hobgoblin.

Demogoblin 1

Once again defeated by Spider-Man, Hobgoblin teamed up with Carrion to take out Spider-Man and they were both caught in a gas Leak explosion in Spectacular Spider-Man #163. Doctor Strange tried to help Hobgoblin but he was too far gone at that point, in Doctor Strange vol 2 #11 during the Act of Vengeance, Strange cast a spell and made Jason believed his face had returned to normal, this only further drove him to madness.

Demo Goblin 2
Several months later in Spider-Man #6 & 7 he kidnapped a bunch of people and really believed to be on a mission from God, kept an innocent child to him self while battling Spider-Man and the Dan Ketch Ghost Rider. At this point Jason was so far gone and the Demon had taken over.

In Amazing Spider-Man # 334-339 and Spider-Man# 18-23 Hobgoblin was involved in both the Return of the Sinister Six and Revenge of the Sinister Six storylines, he had replaced Kraven the Hunter who was one of the original members but had died during Fearful Symmetry Kravens Last Hunt. He was still on a path to kill all sinners and believed Doctor Octopus group was the way to do it.
Shortly after he tried to pick a fight with Moon Night in Moon Knight #33 thinking him a sinner since he used to be a Mercenary, makes you wonder why he never went after the Punisher? Of course why didn’t he kill him self as Jason use to be one as well…thats a sin right its very confusing.

Demo Goblin 3
In Ghost Rider vol 2 #16 and 17, the Hobgoblin kidnapped Francis Ketch, Danny’s adopted mother from her church. He believed he was once again doing God’s work hearing her cries to God to save the soul of her daughter Barbara, who had died a few months ago. Danny as Ghost Rider, and Johnny Blaze the original Ghost Rider and Spider-Man showed up to stop Hobgoblin. They rescued Dan’s mother and noticed a transformation, as if Jason was fighting to get control of his body back.

demogoblin 5
In Web of Spider-Man #84 the two beings trapped in Hobgoblin’s body started fighting for control the combination of Hellfire form Ghost Rider’s Dan and John and the constant fighting had taken its toll on Hobgoblin and the demon separated from Jason in Web of Spider-Man # 86. Now he was called Demogoblin. Now the Demon wanted to kill Macendale for all the sins he had committed and hunted him down eventually teaming up with the Spider-Man Doppelganger in Spider-Man #24 during the Infinity War story Line. (Another Marvel multi book cross over)

Demo Goblin 4

During a cross over with Ghost Rider/ Johnny Blaze Spirits of Vengeance and Web Of Spider-Man, Spidey had to keep Jason alive to stand trial for a murder he committed. While in the sewer he ran in to Blaze and the Rider and Venom as they were hunting Deathwatch who was trying to resurrect their leader. It was a lot of characters and Demogoblin and the Spider Doppelganger were there. They failed to kill Macendale.

Demo Goblin 6
Demo then found his way into the messed up serial killer Carnage family during the Maximum Carnage story which ran thru all the Spider-Man summer titles in 1993. (too many to list here). The Battle waged all over New York with hundreds dead and only thru the combined efforts of Spider-Man, Iron first, Black Cat, Venom, Morbius, Nightwatch, Cloak and Dagger, Deathlok, Captain America, and Firestar were they able to stop Carnage, Shriek, Carrion, The Dopple Ganger and DemoGoblin. The Spider Doppelganger was killed by Carnage and the DemoHobgoblin was captured but got away shortly after. He would encounter Venom and Morbius the Living Vampire again in the Venom Sinners Takes All mini series.

Demo Goblin 7
In Spider-Man # 46,47,48 The Hobgoblin wanted to put an end to his demonic half once and for all. Having obtained ultimate strength from Kraven the Hunter’s son The Grimm Hunter, Hobgoblin got into a fight with Demogoblin in a church and while the church was collapsing around them, Demo saw a young boy about to be crushed and risked his own life to save him by Spider-Man. In doing so his strength gave out and he was crushed to death.

Hobgoblin later tried to kidnap his own son was foiled by Spider-Man and was sent to jail. Eventually got a cybernetic upgrade from Norman Osbourne was defeated by Spider-Man and then killed in jail by the original Hobgoblin Rodrick Kingsley in Hobgoblin Lives # 1.

Why did I start this with a minor character in the Goblin saga? Mainly because I always thought he was the coolest of the Goblins. Is he dead?? Well he was a demon from HELL, can you really kill them? Doppelganger Spider-Man came back in the 2012 mini Series CARNAGE, and no one seems to stay dead in comics forever. We shall see.
Not The End?…..

American Horror Story : Hotel

Posted in death, horror, news, tv on February 26, 2015 by chrisdsav

Lady Gaga and American Horror Story? It’s a match made in monster heaven. This is ok news if your a Gaga fan, I personally don’t care.

The big news is not only the casting, but also the reveal of Season 5’s theme. Each year, American Horror Story has a subtitle since Season 2.

This obliterates the prevailing fan theory that Season 5 would cover the gruesome fallout of chemical warfare. Instead, we should probably expect something a little closer to The Shining or Disney’sTower of Terror, but with blood and guts. If we’re getting another ghost story like season 5 then I’m bored already.

But spooky bellhops and mysterious maids aside, what can we expect from Lady Gaga? Well, we already know that Season 5 will (a) have a modern setting and (b) undergo a fairly radical re-invention. There were many who hoped that re-invention would entice series starJessica Lange to stay. I don’t think that’s happening I ALSO don’t get the huge speak of Lange. She plays the same bitch character every season. Not really something I care to see 5 seasons in a row.
We will have to wait and see how the season goes.

Actor Thomas Dekker

Devil May Cry DMC RIP

Posted in Demons, horror, news, Video Games on February 19, 2015 by chrisdsav

Announced in December Ninja Theory is coming out with a Special Edition of DMC for PS4 and X-Box One later this year. Also we are getting another Devil game but not the game we were expecting.
Now I figured be a good time to go thru a review of the game. The original came out in 2013, its the 5th entry in the series and a reboot after the dismal performance of part 4.
You once again play as Dante and this time he has this gothic Punk noir look to him and his universe as well as the other characters. He is younger than the previous incarnation and even has a site gag about the way his hair would look long and white and flowing like a rock star. This time he has a short spikey hair swears a lot and cracks more jokes than Nathan Drake (from The Uncharted series) when trouble arrives.
The new look really helped Capcom’s fledging series bring it back up to what it was with Devil May Cry 1 and 3 ( I only ever played 1).

The story has Dante in Limbo City, teaming with his long lost brother Virgil and a Witch named Kat. They battle their way thru demons and monster sna other disgusting hordes of evil. The gameplay is very similar as the other Devil games but with more fluidity and better movement.

The Dante of DmC is a young man who has no respect for authority or society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast. He is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a real impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both combat and movement. The graphics really stand out and show the gothic horror game play at its best.

dmc2
Dante heads into battle with his sword Rebellion, which can now transform into an axe, a scythe, and a grappling hook (that works much like Nero’s Snatch ability), and a few other weapons. This allows for Dante to have access to all of his weaponry, similar to Devil May Cry 4, which the player can cycle through the D-Pad.

The new Dante is a Nephilim (half-demon/half-angel), instead of being a half-human, half-demon hybrid.[2] Because of this change in lineage, game mechanics were also changed to reflect this, utilizing the trigger buttons to access angelic or demonic aligned weapons
This is your typical hack and slash game play its senseless violance and chopping and dicing action you come to expect from this game series. Dante is voiced and modeled after actor Tim Philips.

DmC_box_art
The new version coming out will most likely have all the DLC content including Virgils mission at the end of the game. This most likly means we are getting another Devil May Cry game in the not too distant future, the unfortunate news is they are going back to the original series and ignoring the reboot. Which is a shame as this game I had more fun playing than the previous ones.
