Tonight on Radio of Horror the show begins at 8pm, we will have guests on the show all night long. Dan Kimmel will call in to talk about recent horror movies and we will have some authors in the studio from the New England Horror writers. We will also have Danille Harris from Halloween 4,5,9,10 and Jennifer Blanc Biehn from Prank.
You no what’s a load of BS the covers to both An American Werewolf in London and Buffy the Vampiure Slayer The Movie trying to capture the Twilight craze. For shame studios for shame. The Buffy cop off image I have only seen on Netflix, but here is the Werewolf one. I am also going to point out how this peice of shit film The Haunted Airman does the same thing staring Robert Pattinson, its a ghost film not Vampires, morons.
This weekend at 12am Oct 30th into Halloween Day till noon time, the Coolidge is showing Re-Animator and House, along with 4 other films that have yet to be anounced, but they are good ones. Check out the Coolidge’s website and FB event page for more info.
This week I had a chance to catch the new Wes Craven film My Soul to Take. I realize this movie has been out for two weeks now but this was the first chance to catch it after the crazy weekend that was Rock and Shock. It’s a vast improvement over his last true horror movie Cursed, (RED LINE was more of a thriller) he once again has three major themes working for him, major family issues with the main character (Nancy’s parents in Nightmare on Elm St all held a secret that they killed Fred Kruegar, and Cindy in Scream was still living with her moms murder over her head). Yes I realize I just mentioned 4 other films by the master of Horror but it was needed in order to explain the ups and downs of this movie. The use of cell phones and a phantom killer. The phantom killer was actually creepy and looked convincing as the Riverton Ripper. It was like a cross between Rob Zombie and a wet bum but still looked real creepy. Bigest problem I had with the movie was certain origins like of the Ripper were never explained. The movie was shot in 3-D, but I only had a chance to see it in 2-d. I was told I didn’t miss much. Check ou the show Sunday night for a more in-depth review.
Paranormal Activity 2 arrived in theaters about a year after the last one and a week before Saw7. Smart idea to release it before the final chapter of Horror most recently over done franchise. We will be covering this in detail coming up on the show Sunday. biggest complaint I have is why did it cost 3mil to make it basically looked just like the first one. Maybe because of more actors in this movie. In the original it was two main characters and two side characters. now we have 4 main characters a dog and 3 supporting actors. Two of which are Micah and Katie from Part 1. That is the only spoiler I will give away for now.
Here are three more great Halloween ideas.

Rock and shock is finally over.
We got to meet many great people and reconnect with many others, Alex Winters (The Lost Boys), Dee Wallace (Cujo, ET), Brian Steele (Underworld 1,2 HellBoy1,2) Mellisa Cowan (The Walking Dead). The two big things we got to share some laughs and take some great pics with Ruggario Deodata and George Romero. These two people are among the most legendary of film makers and it was great to meet them and get them to sign our stuff. It would have been great to spend more time with George, but his line was huge and you were rushed thru it rather fast. Danny Trejo was the most expensive person there that weekend. It was hard to drop $30 bucks on his signature, or 20 for a photo with him. A lot of guests said they were asked by the con to charge for photos with them. This seems very strange as we were told that the con does not make up the prices, so very conflicting stories. Hats off to Gina and Kevin for putting ona great show. Only major complaint is the show needs something more added to it. One thing would be to hire an artist to make the R&S program into a mini comic. An idea to wait till next years show to pass along.
ROH only went to one of the concerts but it was the best on Rob zombie and Alice Cooper was one of the best shows we have seen in years. Having been to a Zombie concert in 2001, and 2002 we knew what to expect but it was great to see him live again. Alice Cooper is one of those old school rock stars and finally we saw him, something I was always worried we would never get a chance to do. I stayed for 30 mins of Gwar but had to leave do to a cold. Thanks go to Neal and Brian of Horror Idols without them we would never have been able to go to the concert.
Some of the films and Q&As we had a chance to check out were Human Centipeed (introduced by the cast), Lizbeth-a documentry on Lizzie Borden, Pink Sock- created by my buddy Josh at Movie Stop. We attended the Author Q&A with former guests Jack Ketchum and Joe Netter. The Q&A with Deodata was real cool the man is a legend for one of the greatest goreiest films ever made.
Lost of great Vendors like Dread Central and Fionas Frieght Shop, Paul Nicholasi of Dread is coming on the show tonight. It was also great to meet many peopel who have come on the show and those who have listened I can’t wait till next year see you then.
Rock and shock the local Worcester horror convention has begun, we will have more updates thru out the weekend. We are pressed for time and have a lot to go over on the first day liek meeting George Romero. Stay tuned fr more info.
Tomorow Radio of Horror will sit in on a conference call with Jigsaw himself Tobin Bell, star of Saw 1-7 and The new Saw video game franchise, Saw 2: Flesh and Blood comes out next week for PS3 and X-Box 360.
