Haven't been watching as much horror flicks as I'd like to due to school getting in the way, etc. Still have some stuff to do during my spring break, but someone I know from the net sent me a link of some old classical horror films that he knew I'd love so I decided to check it out. Man, am I excited when I saw the flicks they have in their selection. He recommended The Vampire Bat which I just finished watching just a few minutes ago. Not bad at all. I felt it was a little slow at first, but man did it start to pick up by the second half of the movie. In a small village named Kleinschloss, each night a new murder is discovered. The towns people begin to believe that a vampire is at bay and causing the murders due to teeth marks on the sides of the neck. The main inspector on the case, Karl, is highly skeptical on this whole deal while Dr. Von Niemann cares for each of the victims. A strange mentally disturbed man by the name of Herman Gleib is the main suspect as the vampire due to his love of bats.After going after Gleib, more story details are discovered about this whole murder situation which I'll back off from spoiling. Not a great movie that keeps you on your toes but it's a good hour to spend when you have nothing to do. I did like some camera movements, especially in the beginning. The characters were very well done, Dr. Von Niemann and Herman being my absolute favorite, Herman being played by Dwight Frye, best known for playing Fritz in the original Frankenstein movie.. And boy, I wish I had some pop corn when the revelation of the murders started making sense.If you're a fan of the original King Kong, actress Fay Wray, the original scream queen, plays the love interest of Karl, who was played by Melvyn Douglas.Directed by Frank R. Strayer.
Today on Face To Greg, we discuss Image's upcoming Olympus writer, Nathan Edmonson, about the new book while I try to get some top secret info out of the book.
Can I say, "EEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!"EW EW EW EW EWW!!!!!http://news.aol.com/article/giant-sea-worm/412269?icid=main|main|dl1|link3|http%3A%2F%2Fnews.aol.com%2Farticle%2Fgiant-sea-worm%2F412269April 2) - Staff at a British aquarium have captured a massive sea worm that had been terrorizing other aquatic life.For months, the 4-foot-long creature -- which staffers call "Barry" -- had been devastating coral reef at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium, the Daily Mail newspaper reported Tuesday. The menacing monster also apparently injured a Tang fish.Initially, aquarium workers weren't sure what was harming the coral, which in some cases was cut in half. After weeks with no clues, they decided to take the display apart to see if they could find the culprit, the Mail reported.Workers laid bait traps, which were mysteriously destroyed in the night, as the glutton apparently devoured the fish hooks right along with the bait. Finally, staffers spotted the tropical worm, which bit through a 20-pound fishing line before staffers were able to successfully remove it from the tank.The creature is covered with nasty bristles that sting and can cause permanent numbness in humans, the newspaper said."Tt really does look like something out of a horror movie," Matt Slater, the aquarium's curator, told the Mail. "It's over 4 feet long with these bizarre-looking jaws."Slater said he suspects Barry arrived as a baby in a shipment from another aquarium. The worm now lives in his own tank.
I'm attempting to start an online petition for Marvel to collect and trade the rest of Christopher Priest's 62 issue run of Black Panther. Thus far, only 12 issues have been collected and that was years ago. I know there are some Priest fans here. Help, signatures, and supports would be greatly appreciated. http://petitionspot.com/petitions/PriestBlackPanther
Well, friends of mine had a film assignment and I thought it'd be awesome to help out if they needed an actor. Originally they had a different story but it got changed to me now being a victim tied up and tortured by a loving husband and wife (who are married in real life and is the parents of one of my friends, ha!) But yeah, I had SO much damn fun and we do a lil' more shooting on Sunday. Here are a few pics from the dad's cam.
This looks darn interesting. Definitely a type of movie I'm interested in and I usually talk to my friends about how you never see black leading actors in roles like this where their race isn't a factor. Starring Idris Elba, and man... it must be something to have both Beyonce and Ali Larter fighting over you!
So... yeah. I finally saw this movie. I know, I know, where the heck have I been, huh? But better late than never as they say. And man, this was a fun watch. Sigourney Weaver stars as Lt. Ellen Ripley as she battles a terrifying alien life form that stalks and kills the space crew of the Nostromo. At first a slow moving film but when the Alien starts to come into the picture and becomes a big problem, you're hooked. The first part of the film mostly has to do with the workers trying to go back to Earth after having to haul a refinery and twenty million tons of mineral ore until they receive a transmission from a nearby planetoid. While there, they discover strange remains of a giant alien, ribs all exposed. Kane, played by John Hurt, discovers a mysterious egg that hatches. The creature inside it attacks him and paralyzes him while attaching itself onto his face. The crew rush him back into the ship and tries to get the creature off of him to discover the creature's blood is acid as it leaks and drips several floors. The creature eventually detaches itself and dies, Kane soon awakening.Everyone assumes everything is fine and dandy until during a lunch break, Kane's chest bursts open with a small alien popping out in oe of the most memorable scenes in horror. My cousins and baby sister screamed in disgust while I just applauded and laughed. The rest of the film now consists of the crew attempting to track down the alien while it stalks and eliminates each crew member one by one. It's a lot of fun and a very suspenceful film. Nice little scares here and there.The acting and directing were all top notched and helped keep you at the edge of your seat with a smile on your face. I'm looking forward to seeing the sequels, hopefully they're as good as this one was.
A good buddy of mine is a huge Hack/Slash fan. All he does is praise the book and continues to try to get me to check out the book. At first something about it didn't seem to grab me. Eventually I decided, "Sure, I'll give it a try." What better time than the NYCC this year. I was actually starting to really look forward to the book as the more I started to hear about it, the more intriguing it seemed. And I was looking forward to meet the creator, Tim Seeley. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find Seeley and all my cash was gone. I actually felt bad and annoyed about it but anywho, once again my friend, Eric, got on me to check it out and wanted me to read #20 and review it.So here's the review, Eric, for you to stop bugging me. ;)Now I pretty much have no knowledge of this book except that it's a horror book that stars a hot female lead who reminds me of Megan Fox, hello hel-lo! Cassie Hack, the lead, goes to a police station for help only to get thrown behind bars after quite some counts against her. In the meantime there's some moments between her supporting cast who includes a deformed man by the name of Vlad, and a girl who's name I can't remember seeing in the issue but basically there's tension between them due to Vlad feeling unimportant now that Cassie seems to have become closer to her, even sexual-wise. There's also a scene with a guy and a demon-y looking creature named Pooch who adds to quite some funniness in the book.The main story then returns to Cassie being transfered to prison. The drivers of the police fan gets killed and Cassie gets knocked out. She awakens, tied up and sees a bunch of naughty things around her that consists of dildos, porn mags, condoms, etc. She also sees a bunch of middle age folks who are dressed in weird costumes ready to stab her. Cassie is able to escape and beat the crap out of the cult members while still cuffed and even has a knife fight with one with her using one of the dildos. That got a good chuckle outta me.So yeah... um... Hack/Slash #20. I was lost and had no idea what was going on or why, but I really really enjoyed it. The writing was enough to keep me interested and the art was very very crisp. The characters seemed to be great also. I would really like to read more and I'm sure my bud, Eric, is happy to hear that. So when I have a good bit of extra cash, Hack/Slash omnibus, here I come.
Dan McDaid is the amazing artist and co-creator of the new Image hit Jersey Gods. A book about a god who marries a lovely human on Earth. It's a seriously funny comic, written by Glen Brunswick. Now I've been hanging out at their boards for a little while and I go cruising through Dan's art blog. One day I tried getting my drawing itch back and started a sketch of one of their characters, Helius, but soon after gave up. I told Dan about it and he asked me to draw it but I denied. I didn't think I'd do any justice to the character. One night while going through Dan's blog I stumbled upon a very small sketch of my boy, Harvey Two-Face and brought it to his attention. He then told me that he'd draw me a Two-Face sketch if I drew that Helius pic. DAMMIT, DAN!!! But hey, there's NO WAY I'd pass up on a Harvey sketch so yes, he talked me into it. So I did my sketch of Helius and I had a ton of fun drawing it. I had it done for a while before the NYCC this year but wanted to surprise Dan and not tell him I had drew it. When the NYCC came I presented it to him and it was great to see his reaction. He asked me if he could ink it and I said sure. And below, there it is! And it looks amazing! His inking really brought my picture to life, and made it actually look good! Just plain wow, this has surely made my day. WOW, DAN! I'm not even sure I want to call this my own because he did such a beautiful job with this. Goodness gracious!And here is his bad-ass Two-Face. This contributed to the NYCC this year being one of the most awesomest days I've had in my life.
