2011 Eyegore Award Recipients RevealedIt’s that time of year again. No, not back to school time or the start of the NFL season. I can’t argue that both of those events do bring a smile to my face, but I’m talking about something rooted much deeper in the darkness. I’m talking about the announcement of the Eyegore Award winners!

The Eyegore Awards are given by Universal Studios Hollywood during the grand opening of their Hollywood Horror Nights to honor winners who have been standouts in the horror field. Let me give you some clues as to a few of this year’s winners…We’ve got a guy named after a witch, a paper salesman and the dude who landed the hottest chick ever while sporting the cheesiest mustache ever. Did you guess Alice Cooper, Rainn Wilson and David Arquette? Give yourself a pat on the back if you did. Huzzah! Joining that threesome are Jamie Kennedy, Bailee Madison and Emma Bell.

Lots of surprises, as well as the winner of the Halloween Horror Nights Short Film Competition will be on hand. Check out the Halloween Horror Nights website for all the info.

From the Press Release
Scream stars David Arquette and Jamie Kennedy will join Rainn Wilson, star of Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark star Bailee Madison, Final Destination 5 actress Emma Bell and legendary rocker Alice Cooper as honorees at the 2011 Eyegore Awards, the opening night ceremony for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Corey Feldman returns as host of the ceremony with presenters that include former Eyegore Award recipient Rob Zombie and Calico Cooper. Filmmaker Eli Roth, one of last year’s Eyegore recipients who helps bring this year’s new maze to life, Eli Roth’s Hostel: Hunting Season and actor / director Diego Luna, who’s serving as creative consultant to the new maze, La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas, will also be in attendance.

The winner of the 2011 Halloween Horror Nights Short Film Competition will also debut at the event.

Recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Alice Cooper created the concept of the theatrical rock concert and has thrilled generations of fans with spectacular stagecraft and darkly flamboyant showmanship. His recording career spans six decades, includes over two dozen albums, millions of record sales, countless world tours and appearances in scores of movies and videos, including a brief but memorable appearance in both Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy’s Dead and Universal Pictures’ Prince of Darkness. The rock icon will also unveil his new maze, Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, inspired by his landmark concept album and its long-awaited sequel Welcome 2 My Nightmare, to be released on September 13 through Universal Music Enterprises.

Before catapulting to fame as Dwight Schrute on NBC’s “The Office,” actor Rainn Wilson terrified audiences in 2003 with his star-turning performance as “Fish Boy” in Rob Zombie’s horror cult classic, House of 1000 Corpses. The film was transformed into the popular maze, Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses: In 3D ZombieVision at last year’s event and makes an encore performance at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.

Filmmaker David Arquette first introduced the character of Deputy Dewey to audiences in Wes Craven’s 1996 enormously successful slasher film Scream. He returned to face the infamous “Ghostface Killer” in all three subsequent sequels, including Scream 4.

Jamie Kennedy, recognized for his role as Eli James on the hauntingly popular television show, “Ghost Whisperer,” reprised his role as Randy Meeks in the first three Scream movies. This year’s Halloween Horror Nights pays homage to the latest installment of the Scream films when “Ghostface Killer” makes an otherworldly appearance to stalk guests on Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life, a new experience on the world-famous backlot.

Rising star Bailee Madison starred most recently alongside Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes in Guillermo del Toro’s, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Her credits span beyond horror films to include Brothers co-starring Natalie Portman, Conviction starring Hilary Swank, the Adam Sandler comedy Just Go With It and “Wizards of Waverly Place,” starring Selena Gomez. She recently made headlines when she was tapped to star alongside Billy Crystal and Bette Midler in Us & Them.

Actress Emma Bell’s stint in horror films include starring roles in Final Destination 5, Frozen and AMC’s zombie series “The Walking Dead.”

Previous Eyegore Award recipients have included Christopher Lloyd, Patricia Arquette, Janet Leigh, Roger Corman, six-time Oscar-winning special effects makeup artist Rick Baker, Karen Black, Tobin Bell, Tobe Hopper and Corey Feldman.

The winner of the 2011 Halloween Horror Nights Short Film Competition will be honored during the ceremony. Brent Bokovoy from El Cajon, California, will have his film premiere at event, receive national broadcast exposure on Chiller and syfy.com and be awarded a $1,000 cash prize.

Halloween Horror Nights will take place on select nights beginning September 23 and continue on September 24, 30; October 1,7, 8,9, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31.

The Hatred Review – A History Lesson Dug Up From The Depths Of Hell

Published

on

Starring Zelda Adams, Lulu Adams, John Law

Directed by John Law


I don’t know about the scholastic interests the masses had (or have) that read all of the killer nuggets that get cranked out on this site, but when I was an academic turd, one of my true passions was history, and it was one of the only subjects that managed to hold my interest, and when the opportunity arose to check out John Law’s ultra-nightmarish feature, The Hatred – I was ready to crack the books once again.

The setting is the Blackfoot Territory in the late 1800s, and the pains of a lengthy conflict have taken their toll on the remaining soldiers as food has become scarce, and the film picks up with soldiers on the march in the brutal cold and snow covered mountainside. In tow is a P.O.W. (Law), and the decision is made by the soldiers to execute him in earnest instead of having to shorten their rations by feeding him, so he is then hung (pretty harshly done), and left to rot as the uniformed men trudge along. A short time later the group encounters a small family on the fringes of the territory, and when the demands for food are rebuked, the slaughter is on and the only survivor is a young girl (Adams) who prays to an oblivious god that she can one day reap the seeds of revenge upon those who’ve murdered her family. We all know that there are usually two sides to any story, and when the good ear isn’t listening, the evil one turns its direction towards those who need it most, and that’s when the Devil obliges.

The answer to the young girl’s prayers comes in the resurrection of the prisoner that was hung a short time ago, and he has been dubbed “Vengeance” – together their goal will be achieved by harshly dishing out some retribution, and the way it’s presented is drawn-out, almost like you’re strapped into the front-row pew of a hellfire-cathedral and force-fed the sermon of an evil voice from the South side of the tracks. It’s vicious and beautiful all at once, Law’s direction gives this visually-striking presentation all the bells and whistles to please even the harshest of critics (hell, you’re reading the words of one right now). The performances, while a bit stoic in nature, still convey that overall perception of a wrong that demands to be righted, no matter how morally mishandled it might be. Overall, I can absolutely recommend The Hatred for not only those wanting a period-piece with ferocious-artistry, but for others who continue to pray with no response, and are curious to see what the other side can offer.

Summary

The Hatred is a visually-appealing look into the eyes of animus, and all of the beauty of returning the harm to those who have awarded it to others.

Exclusive Clip: Psychotic! A Brooklyn Slasher Film Gets High in the Shower

Published

on

All right, you party hardy folks from Brooklyn… this one should speak volumes to you and your sinful, decadent, and raucous ways! Today we’ve got an exclusive clip from the upcoming psychedelic horror title Psychotic! A Brooklyn Slasher Film, which sees one of the characters getting high in a bathroom and then thinking he’ll pull a prank on his friends. However, it turns out that he’s never seen Psycho because we all know what happens when you’re in the shower and someone mysterious enters the bathroom! You can see the grisly action for yourself below.

There will be special screenings of Psychotic! at the Nitehawk Theater in Williamsburg on January 25th, Film Noir Cinema in Greenpoint on the 26th, and Videology on the 27th. The film will come to VOD platforms on January 26th.

Written and directed by Derek Gibbons and Maxwell Frey, Psychotic! A Brooklyn Slasher Film stars Kristen Martin, Clint Keepin, Cirocco Dunlap, Maria Wojciechowski, Dani Grace, Adam Maid, Rafael Cruz, Chris Prine, Aldous Davidson, and Rachel Laforest.

Synopsis:
The rent is high, but the body count is higher in Psychotic!, the suspenseful psychedelic slasher that follows a group of hard-partying Brooklyn hipsters as they’re stalked and savagely murdered by a masked maniac known as the Bushwick Party Killer.

It’s up to struggling artists Tim and Stuart to figure out who keeps killing the life of the party. Blood-soaked mayhem ensues as our heroes barely make the rent on time, search for love (in all the wrong places), and try to salvage their friendship – all while trying to unravel the mystery and stay one step ahead of the next massacre.

Witness the Evolution of Jason Voorhees in New Animated Video

Published

on

I love Jason Voorhees.

And what makes Jason my favorite of all horror movie villains is that, unlike Freddy, Michael, and Leatherface, Jason has evolved a f*cking ton over his cinematic lifespan.

Changing from a bald kid in a lake, to a backwoods butcher with a love for potato sacks, to an unstoppable zombie force, Jason has come a long way, baby. And today’s animated video is all about celebrating Jason’s evolution in a fun, informative way.

Do you have any “non-horror” friends that are interested in the story of Jason but will never watch the films with you? Then here is the cute widdle video from Tell It Animated just for them. You’ll enjoy it too.

You can give the fun video a watch below and then let us know what you think!

Synopsis:

Jason Voorhees has changed a lot since his first appearance in Friday the 13th. From skinny child to hockey mask slasher to rebuilt space Jason and back again, this video goes through his progression.
