TOM BRADY AND THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS WON THE SUPER BOWL AAAAHHH!!! NOW here is a look at Stranger Things Season 2
WOW there were a lot of Horror movies in 2017 so far one a week and with more coming in February I thought the best way engage the audience about my thoughts would be to take it month by month. I am going to make some videos dedicated to the franchises we have out Resident Evil, Underworld and this weekend The Ring. Stay tuned for those soon. All movies are playing at the Black Stone Valley Plaza in Millbury Ma off of rt 146 and other theaters around the country.
UNDERWORLD BLOOD WARS
When I heard this female led action series was going to be directed by a Woman I was very excited BUTTTTTT Anna Foerster really didnt make this movie unique or better than the last. In fact she seems to ignore things set up in part 4. Kate Beckindale returns in what has become the most tired worn out Vampire franchise since Sparkle Boy and Cock Tease Girl, Its so heavy on the CGI and bland plot line over the top action and not in the John Wick way. Plots are dropped and the more interesting characters are killed off. Its Nice to see Kate back in leather again but I don’t need to see another one of these films again. When this first started I was so excited and I loved the dvd when it finally came, but as the series went on it got worse and worse.
The BYE BYE MAN
Don’t say it Don’t think it Don’t Say it Don’t think it……yeah just keep saying that over and over and over again. What a great idea but executed so badly. Another movie with a FEMALE director this month Stacy Title and I would be very happy if it was not so bad. Doug Jones is her saving grace but he barely does anything in this movie . Carrie Ann Moss shows up as a detective trying to investigate what is going with these three college kids who are being manipulated by this Bad Bad Man and she is USELESS in this movie. Her characters has nothing to do. Pass on this one.
Of all the films I thought would be the worst was one of the best SPLIT is a decent thriller by M. Night Shyamalan This was a decent portrayal of a split personality disorder. James McAvoy really shows his acting chops in this movie developing the different personality of the people inside Kevin. The onl;y problem I have is I wish we could have seen more of those other people as we only get maybe 7. The main character from last years The Witch and Barry, Anya Taylor Joy is really showing showing she is becoming the IT girl of Hollywood. There is a HUGE connection to another M Night film, I hope you all caught it and there are other Easter Eggs in this film worth checking out.
RESIDENT EVIL THE FINAL CHAPTER
Finally its over hopefully, I think so who knows Friday the 13th had its FINAL CHAPTER and he WENT TO HELL and we still got more Jason movies. I don’t know what Paul WS Anderson and his wife Mila Jovovitch are doing when they are making these movies. It opens In DC where we left the last film but with characters missing like Leo and Ada Wong and a powerless Alice with NO EXPLANATION of what happened. There is a movie between them and we never saw it. Claire Redfield shows back up with no mention of her brother Chris….he must have been making Prison Break the mini Series and DC Legends of Tomorrow. I like Ali Larter and live seeing her in things, I been in love with her since Final Destination, but this series wasted her as an actress. If this is what we call acting fuck this, this film series is just hear to suck money from you cuz people are too stupid to stop seeing them. You want a great Resident Evil Experience go play Part 7 Bio-hazard of the video games series. Trust me it will be well worth the money
WOW it has been months since I did one of these I realized and I wanted to do one to start the new year weeks ago but never got around to it. SO the last day of January I decided to start again, this time with an album that I picked up back in October SCREAM in fact its actually the sound track to Scream 1 and 2. Both films were directed by the late great Wes Craven and composed by Marco Beltrami. The music from the Scream franchise was instrumental in launching the career of Marco Beltrami, who is now one of the most popular composers in Hollywood. This really shows he can do that music we love to hear in a Wes Craven Horror movies, its soft at times we need to be and twisted and speeds up for a good fight and chase scenes. I never found Scream to be scary but I wont denigh I loved the films and their music was always great.
The record comes in a slip cover with Gorgeous art by Gary Pullin, more on his amazing art can be found here. Gary Pullin Facebook Page
The art reminds me of the cover to Friday the 13th Part 8 with Jason over looking New York city. I tried to recreate this for a office function once with Jason over looking our building like he does NY City. I was told by HR to take it down…..the precious butterfly’s of the office might be OFFENDED. I digress. If you look closely you can see Drew Barrymore character hanging from the tree like in the opening of SCREAM.
The vinyl it self is white to match Ghost Face mask. A Bone White’ 180 gram colored vinyl. The record when the needle hits really puts me into the film itself and when it comes to Horror Soundtracks this is the best way for me to listen to them, not on Itunes or on cd even. My only complaint is the Chase begins from the first Scream is not here. Also the cardboard it comes in can be damaged very very easily so be careful how you handle it. Mine has a few creases already. The price tag on this is not bad it will fetch you between 20-25 on amazon or ebay. Pick it up if your a horror soundtrack collector.
Back in 2001 Brandon Routh before he was he Atom and after he was Superman played Dylan Dog and I actually kind of liked the movie but…..lots of people did not…however look whats coming soon.
First, some info on the comics – Dylan Dog is a massively popular Italian horror comic, created by Tiziano Sclavi in 1986 (Sclavi would later write the script for an unofficial Dylan Dog tie-in – Dellamorte Dellamore, aka Cemetery Man).
Dylan Dog is a private investigator specializing in nightmares. He lives with his eccentric assistant, Groucho, and solves cases dealing with the paranormal.
Seeing as the copyright to Dylan Dog still lies in Hollywood (adaptation Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a film similar in name only to the popular comic and hated by fans), some of the characters had to be slightly altered; yet, the atmosphere and feel are kept as close as possible to the source material.
Kevin Kopacka produced, directed, scored, and edited the pilot episode, titled “Dream of the Living Dead” – which he co-wrote with fellow director Alex Bakshaev. Besides the titular character Dylan (renamed as “Dylan Dawn”), the pilot will feature alterations of other Dylan Dog characters such as Groucho, Inspektor Bloch, Madame Trelkovski, Jenkins, Morgana, and Xarabas.
After a fight with her husband, Corrado, Morgana’s world seems somehow different – cold, dark, and rotten. Trapped between reality and nightmare, she has no choice but to seek out “Nightmare Investigator” Dylan Dawn. But can Dylan save her from her fate, or is she forever caught in a maze of bad dreams?
“Dylan” stars Ford Everett as Dylan, Denise Ankel as Morgana, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder veteran Harry Baer as Inspektor Mahlow. The pilot is currently in post-production, but the rough edit has already been finished. It will have a run time of 40 minutes and will be released free for all online around April. Based on the reaction to the pilot, a 6-episode first season might get made (though at the moment it is unknown if for TV or based online).
The idea is to have a 6-episode first season. As with the comics, each episode will be different in style and atmosphere to the one before, but there will be an overarching story with Xarabas planned to appear in the season finale.
Expect it to be a mixture of the Dylan comics L’alba dei morti viventi and Morgana with nods to Italian classic horror movies such as Dellamorte Dellamore, Zombi, Demoni, and Burial Ground. It will be very atmospheric, artistic, and (hopefully) even scary but still with comedic elements. A full trailer will be released before the launch of the episode.
As a closing statement, I will say that this show is made for the fans and is in no way meant to be disrespectful to its source material. I hope you (especially the Italian fans!) will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
Tonight on the show Artist Writer Linda Sejic to talk about Blood Stain vol 1 and 2. Vol 2 will be out next month. Music tonight will be another attempt from the CROW Score, last time the studio record player was on the fritz
