Suspiria Trailer

Image
Amazon Studios dropped the first trailer for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the cult classic thriller “Suspiria,” where Dakota Johnson portrays a dance student who unwittingly finds herself in the midst of a “suspicious” coven of witches at an academy abroad. Dario Argento directed the original 1977 supernatural horror film, which starred Jessica Harper.

Guadagnino, known for his intimate character features like “Call Me By Your Name,” is reuniting with Johnson and Tilda Swinton, who plays the elite school’s artistic director Madame Blanc, after working together on “A Bigger Splash.” He also worked with Swinton on “I Am Love.”

The cast also includes Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, Lutz Ebersdorf, and Jessica Harper. Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke is composing the film’s score.

“Suspiria” will make its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Amazon Studios is opening the movie in New York and L.A. on Oct. 26, a week before it hits theaters nationwide on Nov. 2.

Check out the trailer …

Sharknado Its About Time
2018 | Color | 1 Hr 30 Min | Action | TV-14 | Asylum

Director: Anthony C. Ferrante

Writers:
Thunder Levin   Scotty Mullen

Stars:  Tara Reid Cassandra Scerbo Jonathan Bennett Ian Ziering
Fin has to go back in time to rejoin his shark-battling friends to stop the first Sharknado and save humanity.


Ugh where do I start, Ian Ziering is still hot and Cassandra Scerbo is hot and its another Sharknado movie I think. Yep, that is it. You guys know I love bad movies piled on the gooey cheese and I.m a happy man. But the final bow out of the cult phenomenon Sharknado is such a mess that I can not put into words. Bad acting dull special effects and one of the worst screen play's I have ever witnessed makes this the worst movie I have ever taken part in. 

I'm not going to harp on it so let's say this should never have happened and I just don't understand why it did. The jokes even hurt this time around...grrr I don't like to be negative towards a movi…

Enuff is never Enough!

Image
Sometimes you hear a band that you just wonder how is it they are still around. But to some that band is your all-time favorite and you just can't wait for new music well for me that band is Enuff Znuff! The Chicago boys seem to keep kicking and screaming through life and I love it! After Donnie (lead singer) left the band you could not help but think this is it its over. Not for Chip Z'nuff, he picked up the mic this time around and Enuff Z'nuff carries on with their 21st album. With their new sound, they still manage to keep pop metal alive!



Even though songwriter and lead Donnie Vie have left  Chip sounds better than even I thought he would. And the reviews so far have been very positive towards the album. Diamond Boy hit shelves last week and proves you can't take the 80's out of this old man rock on Chip rock on!

The Nun to hot for YouTube

The Nun add that was to hot for YouTube!

Because of the fear the six-second clip has incited in unsuspecting viewers, YouTube has notably taken the video down from the site. The preview, which was streaming before other videos would load on YouTube, displays a typical volume sign increasing in volume and then lowering all the way down when suddenly, the titular nun in full-horror mode appears and makes a blood-curdling scream.

One Twitter user issued a warning about the choice jump-scare in the video and cautioned viewers to turn down the volume “if you have anxiety or just straight up hate jumpscares.” The tweet received over 145,000 likes and 132,000 retweets.



According to its “violent and shocking content in ads” policy, YouTube strives “to avoid offending or shocking users with websites, or apps that are inappropriate for our ad network.” Examples of content considered violent or shocking include “gruesome imagery” and “promotions that are likely to shock or scare.”

Synopsis: The BBC gives over a whole evening to an 'investigation into the supernatural'.

Ninety minutes later the BBC and the country was changed, and the consequences are still felt today.
On Halloween 1992 the BBC aired their Mocumentry Ghostwatch that lead viewers into hysteria! It was so scary it caused PTSD, Labor, and sadly suicide of a ten-year-old boy. With 11 million people watching this one-off which appeared to be broadcast live from a house in Northolt, troubled by a male…

Hammer films big rival Amicus (Vulcan) Productions first feature the City of the Dead is nothing to skip past.

With gorgeous set pieces, you are quickly drawn in and with an all-star cast to drive the story along City is worth tracking down. 

Also worth the mention City had a name change when it came to the states as Horror Hotel. The film omits a few lines during Elizabeth Selwyn's burning at the stake in the first scene, which is critical to fully understanding the plot but apparently of…
