Where I picked this up: Old VHS

After Charles Pierce's passing earlier this month, it was time to finally track down a movie that had kept me wondering for a few years now. Why you ask well I will tell you. Going to Flashback weekend and hanging out with the Monster Kids Classic Horrors Film Board I have heard allot about this movie. From gray market copies to really hard to pass up …

Power Man 5000 - Somewhere On The Other Side of Nowhere

Image
Lead singer Spider (aka Michael Cummings the younger brother of Rob Zombie), the underground electro-metal band Powerman 5000 earned a popular cult following after 1997's "True Force" but it was not until the Napster craze that I found "Mega-Kung Fu Radio". After that, I was hooked. This new space age sounding electro metal was a new sound I have been waiting for. Then came "Tonight the Stars Re-Volt" that the band found its legs. Their love for old Sci-Fi and Horror flicks really help drive the sound of this band. But then came a string of not so powerful albums. Even so the band stayed together putting out their sound to the fans for over 12 years now. I was looking to give them a new shot and picked up the CD "Somewhere on the other side of nowhere". It is not to bad in fact I was unaware of their new tracks until this week. The release date was October 2009. After hearing "V is for Vampire" on the radio last week, I picked it …

Charles B. Pierce 1938-2010

Another one of our genre's unsung heroes has passed on, and while he's not exactly a huge name in the industry, two of his films have been nothing if not influential to a lot of filmmakers still toiling away today.
Filmmaker Charles Pierce who was best known for his two films The Legend of Boggy Creek and The Town that Dreaded Sundown, has passed on quietly at the age of just 71 in his Dover, Tennessee, Nursing Home.
Charles also worked on such other classics as Boggy Creek 2: And the Legend Continues, Sudden Impact, Coffey, Killer Bees, and The Outlaw Josey Wales.

Chasing The Grail

Image
Thanks to the power of XM Radio I first heard Fozzy a few years ago. During Chris Jericho's show, he would play a tune or two. But I never really looked into it until now. When Hair Nation started playing the radio friendly "Broken Soul" I was hooked. The power pop melody's made me sit up and take notice. So I picked up the album "Chasing The Grail". Every song on this CD is hard and heavy 80's glam metal sound that I grew up on and love to this day. From the Ozzy sounding "Under Blackened Skies" to the powerful ending song "wormwood" the pounding never stops. When you need an need a pick up this CD is for you. It has never left my CD player in over a month and is the new sound of my work out.
I'm surprised by Jericho's voice for an over the top WWE superstar he sure can sing! The riffs and melody really blend well with his razor sharp vocals. So if you are in the need for a powerful ass beating the CD really fills the void!

The Snowman
R.L. Stine

Pages 181

Published September 1,1991

(Young Adult)

Poor little rich girl . . . Coveting her money, Heather's uncle/guardian hates her and makes her life miserable. Heather sometimes cannot help wishing her uncle dead. But when Heather's uncle really does die, her new boyfriend tells Heather that he killed her uncle . .for her.

I found this at a book sale for 10 cents just to have a quick read. The book starts off with Heather and Ben sucking face just like most tween books read. But for some reason, this was able to take me away (way) back to high school. Really feel the hate Heather has for her Uncle and that really sets the tone for this book.

Of course, a young handsome man walks into Heathers life and calls himself the Snowman. And she like most girls looking for the rebel in their lives falls madly in love with two boys.

Snowman is really creeping in the book and you start to feel for Heather oddly enough. I was really surprised at the pace of this …

Mister B. Gone

By Clive Barker

Release Date October 2007

Pages 256

Mister B. Gone marks the long-awaited return of Clive Barker, the great master of the macabre, to the classic horror story. This bone-chilling novel, in which a medieval devil speaks directly to his reader--his tone murderous one moment, seductive the next--is a never-before-published memoir allegedly penned in the year 1438. The demon has embedded himself in the very words of this tale of terror, turning the book itself into a dangerous object, laced with menace only too ready to break free and exert its power.

A brilliant and truly unsettling tour de force of the supernatural, Mister B. Gone escorts the reader on an intimate and revelatory journey to uncover the shocking truth of the battle between Good and Evil.

I did at times find myself-talking to Mister B out loud. The Book really draws you in once you get to the middle of the book. But did this new concept work. Well... I did enjoy the whole demons vs angels sto…

So I keep reading all these Top 10 lists that everybody thinks they need to do. Then I ran across something different the Top 10 Horror Movies of the Decade. And it made my think hey way not nobody really reads my rambles anyway and it would be fun. Besides my taste is so far different from everybody else on this planet, don't believe ask my brother.

First a few Honorable Mentions:
My Name is Bruce; Staring, written and directed by Bruce Campbell himself. He really saved his ass with this one after The Man with the Screaming Brain. If you are a fan of Campbell you have seen this and you get it. If not well get out from that rock you dork.Jason X; Why because I think this is one of the best Friday the 13Th they have made in years. Kane Hodder is Jason, the way he moves and walks, he really brings him to life. Sure they take the battle into space and that can be lame but for me it works, but the new evil upgrade was well done and received. I remember when this movie was never getting…
