Manos The search for Valley Lodge

Image
Earlier this year at Flashback Weekend I was told about a little old movie that was so bad it was starting to get a following. Of course my buddies know how much I love cheesy film's could not believe I had not heard of this before. That little old movie is Manos: Hands of Fate. Now when I got home I looked into this movie and it  does sound right up my alley. Here is some backround; The movie was made in 1966 for less then $20,000.

 The plot goes something like this: A family driving through a small town gets lost and winds up at a backwoods shack managed by Torgo, who takes care of it while The Master is away. The Master worships Manos, an evil deity, and he also wears a neat cape. When Torgo lets the family stay, The Master awakens and does mean stuff like burning off Torgo's hand and sicking his dog on the family pet. Meanwhile, The Master's wives wrestle for his favor. *Gulp* sounds odd don't it.

Now its so called cult status comes from Mystery Science Theater.  T…

Its never fun to be sick

Sorry for the lack of post's this week been under the weather, I have a lot to catch up on so beware its going to be a heavy post day.

INTRODUCING: BLITZKRIEG

Image
Full Moon Features teased us this week, releasing a photo of Blitzkrieg. A new puppet for Puppet Master Ten: Axis Rising due out next year.

The Devil Inside Red Band Trailer

In 1989, emergency responders received a 9-1-1 call from Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley) confessing that she had brutally killed three people. 20 years later, her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) seeks to understand the truth about what happened that night. She travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed. When she recruits two young exorcists (Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth) to cure her mom using unconventional methods combining both science and religion, they come face-to-face with pure evil in the form of four powerful demons possessing Maria.

Many have been possessed by one; only one has been possessed by many.




This still does not look as good as the Exorcist but it seems to be the trend. I will most likely skip it belive it or not this is the type of movie that bugs me.  This movie opens in theaters January 6Th.

Mmm Cookies

Image
OK normally I would not do a Bzzagent post here but I feel the need to review these cookies here for you today. (Sorry) So being a Bzzagent your asked to try a new product and let people know what you think. Do you hate to bake cookies but enjoy the taste of homemade? Do you live by a Kroger? If you said yes then read on. 
This cookie is packed with chocolate chips! And I swear you can taste the butter. Just like my grandma use to bake. It's crazy but it's true. I also like that it is free of added preservatives and artificial color. The size of the cookie is not too shabby as well. Almost 2x the size of other chocolate chip cookies. 
You get 8 to a pack and at $2.79 it is a good deal that is sure to please your entire family. The downfall is it's only available at Kroger, Fred Meyer, and Ralph's stores.
Think I'm full of beans well...
I took a box to work with me the other day and everybody liked them. And commented that they tasted like homemade.
I give these ba…

Day 12 of Creepmas

*sigh* Creepmas Day 11

Image
Not sure why this did not post on Sunday Sorry.



According to Dread Central, the UK outfit North Bank Entertainment is currently developing a new updated version of the cult classic Silent Night, Bloody Night. The Remake comes with a new title "Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Home Coming"

“SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING will be a modern updating of the original story, but we also want to re-capture the atmosphere of the slasher films from the 1970s and 80s. There will be a keen focus on practical FX, genuine suspense, and compelling storytelling. This could be one of the rare cases when a new version of a classic actually benefits the original film. We hope that by bringing SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING to a modern audience, they will also seek out the 1974 film and appreciate its importance in horror cinema history.”

Synopsis:  “The abandoned home of Wilfred Butler, a wealthy but troubled man who committed suicide in 1982, has been willed to his grands…

The Stupidest Angel Creepmas Day 8

The Stupidest Angel
A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror

by Christopher Moore

The Stupidest Angel - now with a new chapter!

'Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through the tiny community of Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.

But not everybody is feeling the joy. Little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a holiday miracle. No, he's not on his deathbed; no, his dog hasn't run away from home. But Josh is sure that he saw Santa take a shovel to the head, and now the seven-year-old has only one prayer: Please, Santa, come back from the dead.

But hold on! There's an angel waiting in the wings. (Wings, get it?) It's none other than the Archangel Raziel come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs granting. Unfortunately, our angel's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch, and before you can say "Kris Kringle," he's bo…

Black Christmas Soundtrack



 Download Here
This is not my post and I apologize I do not remember where I got it. This is a deluxe 2 CD set. This is also a fan made CD. So I thank you to the original poster.

Black Christmas is a 1974 Canadian slasher film directed by Bob Clark and written by A. Roy Moore, and largely based on a series of murders that took place in Quebec, Canada around Christmas time. The film's score is by Carl Zittrer. It was distributed by Ambassador Film Distributors in Canada and Warner Bros. in the United States. It follows a group of college students who must face a deranged serial killer lurking in their sorority house. It stars Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, Andrea Martin, Marian Waldman, and John Saxon. A remake of the same name directed by Glen Morgan was released on December 25, 2006. The movie was inspired by an urban legend called "The Baby-Sitter."

Elvira's Merry Creepmas Day 2

Image
Nothing gets you ready for the creepy holidays like Elvira. You will not catch this on the Hallmark Channel, ABC Family or  Lifetime but you can head over to your local video store for some true Creepmas Holiday spirit. Next week December 6th Elvira's Movie Macabre - Santa Claus Conquers The Martians / Beast From Haunted Cave will hit the DVD shelves.






Elvira prepares for her second favorite holiday by screening a camp classic featuring Santa thwarting a Martian plot to steal Christmas plus an abominable film about gangsters battling a snow beast at a ski-lodge. Includes cult director Roger Corman's Beast from Haunted Cave and the B-movie holiday classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.


If you have never seen "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" you owe it to yourself. And what a better way to watch a really bad movie. Elvira's wit and sarcasm make this much easier to swallow. If not you can always find it for a buck on many of those PD DVDs. For now, Check out …

A little Svengoolie News

This week on MeTv will be "Island of Lost Souls"

So if you have never seen Svengoolie somebody over on the youtube posted the first 3 minutes of the intro.

Also this week Sven has said "we will be showing  “The Mummy’s Ghost” with John Carradine- in 2012."
And if that was not enough hinted to showing the Car as well. In his blog he was warning his new viewers  about Svensurround "I continue to hear from viewers about the Flash Gordon Svensurround episode…and the verdict is almost entirely “thumbs up”! That gives me some hope for when we run “The Car”, which is just loaded with Svensurround" said Svengoolie. "I’m sure there will be a few complaints that I have ruined this great “classic”. As I’ve said before- damned if you do, damned if you don’t. You can’t please everyone. I especially enjoy when said complainers react with such outrage when I honestly suggest that, if they want to see the movie untouched". I love the classic bit. Sure The Car i…

Turkey's Away

Sorry  for the lack of post's this week I will try and get caught up soon. With Thanksgiving on our heels and while working retail Black Friday is on my mind. Not to mention inventory the first week of December. Yesterday was Ella's Diabetes 3 month follow up her A1C was a little higher than we would have liked. She came in at 8.9% they would really like her to be under 8%. Other then those things look good. So just a quick share this week.

Free Music Monday New Steelheart Single

Image
On Halloween Steelheart updated their website and are preparing a new album. Right now they are offering a free download to their new song "Black Dog".

Steelheart is a band fronted by Miljenko Matijevic. Mili’s powerful voice and multi-octave range have become the heart and soul of the band. Although they began as a glam band in the early 90s, Mili has recently reformed the band and turned it away from the glam scene. Steelheart's new sound is modern and edgy while still retaining overtones of Miljenko Matijevic's roots.










Slaughter asked Steelheart to perform a show which would occur in Denver, Colorado. The show took place on Halloween night, a night which will forever be remembered by Steelheart fans. While performing, “Dancing in the Fire”, a hit from the “Tangled in Reins” album, Matijevic decided to climb a lighting truss, which was improperly secured. Matijevic tried to evade the massive rig, but without success. The 1000 pound truss hit Matijevic on the back o…
