I realy enjoy the Ghoulies series. The first one was an instant classic and I'm glad I viewed in the theatre. Ghoulies 4 might not have had anything to do with Charles Band and company but its not bad. More like a Trolls 3!

OK gang so I'm about to embark on a new journey this weekend. Heading off to Horizon  disabilities camp. I was a camp counselor for over 20 years for MDA. After kids I put it on the back burn. Well this year its time to dust off the camp shoes and walk again. Its only a weekend but its to prove to myself I can still do this! And get myself ready for a full week next year. I will do my best to tweet out pictures. Wish me luck!

Remembering Jerry G Bishop

Image
Chicago radio and TV legend and creator of the original "Svengoolie," Jerry G. Bishop, has died. He was 77.

Media critic Robert Feder confirmed the news that Bishop passed away Sunday.

Rich Koz, Bishop's protégé and current Svengoolie wrote "I owe everything to him," tweeting Tuesday "The passing of the original Sven- my mentor and friend Jerry G. Bishop-just reminds me of his great heart and talent. Love you,Jerry."

The Lawndale native and Columbia College grad was a star of morning radio during "the golden era of Top 40 radio in the ’60s," Feder reports. In 1970, Bishop introduced the Svengoolie character as the voice-over host of "Screaming Yellow Theater."

Phantom Of The Opera
1943 | Color | 92 Min | 1.37:1 | Mono | Horror | Universal


Director: Arthur Lubin

Writers: Gaston Leroux

Stars:
Nelson Eddy
Susanna Foster Claude Rains 
Pit violinist Claudin hopelessly loves rising operatic soprano Christine Dubois (as do baritone Anatole and police inspector Raoul) and secretly aids her career. But Claudin loses both his touch and his job, murders a rascally music publisher in a fit of madness, and has his face etched with acid. Soon, mysterious crimes plague the Paris Opera House, blamed on a legendary "phantom" whom none can find in the mazes and catacombs. But both of Christine's lovers have plans to ferret him out.

So enough of about that if you missed it last week Sven debuted his new Coffin and its is really cool! You need to check out Dave's article where he dives in to every detail. Amazing! In fact I will get to watch it real soon. So what do you guys think? 


And here is the opening video.

Karen Black has died at 74.

Her husband, Stephen Eckelberry, confirmed the death on Facebook on Thursday. The actress, famous for her performances in "Five Easy Pieces" and "Easy Rider" and "Nashville," had cancer.

Diagnosed with ampullary cancer in November 2010, the actress was forced to turn to crowd-funding when her disease recurred in June 2012. Black's husband, Stephen Eckelberry, turned to the website GoFundMe.com, to raise money to support a two-month clinical treatment in Europe for the actress.


Among her most famous roles was the pregnant girlfriend of Jack Nicholson's character in "Five Easy Pieces" (1971) for which she would receive an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.


She would also play an aspiring actress in "Day of the Locusts" (1976), a country singer in "Nashville" (1975), a sexually confidant lover in "Portnoy's Complaint" (1973) and a kidnapper in Alfred Hitchcock's fin…

Betsy Russel @ Flashback Weekend

Flashback count down day 10. Looking forward to meeting Betsy Russell. And not becuase of the Saw movies. Like most teenage boys I fell in love with her back in Private School and of couarse Cheeleader Camp (AKA Bloody Pom Pom's).

Russell's first role was in the 1982 film Let's Do It!. In 1983, Russell's breakout role came as Jordan Leigh-Jenson in the, Private School. While shooting the film Avenging Angel, she was offered to audition for the 1985 film Silverado but turned it down. She said in an interview, "Everything happens for a reason. I always believe my career would have been different had I done that part. I can’t say if it would have been better or worse. I’ve had a good run". She went on to star in a series of B movies in the 1980s including Tomboy, and Cheerleader Camp. 
After a brief retirement from acting, Russell appeared in a small role in Saw III playing Jigsaw's John Kramer's ex-wife, Jill Tuck. She went on to star in the sequels, Sa…

Count Down To Flashback Day 11

Flashback Weekend (in association with Ain't it Cool News and Lionsgate Films) is proud to announce an advance screening of the acclaimed new horror film "YOU'RE NEXT" to be held during Flashback Weekend 2013 at the Muvico Theaters Rosemont 18 Saturday August 10, 2013 at midnight!

It won't be released in theaters until August 23, 2013, but a theater of Flashback fans will get to see it first!

One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, YOU'RE NEXT reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped...until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.

We'll be announcing ticket distribution for the screening soon.
