Horror on the Auction Block

Published

on

How often do you go to cons and spend way too much money on stuff you just have to have, taking the word from the seller that its authentic? Probably more often than you’d like. So how about spending some cash for a legit piece of horror authenticity and helping out a worthy cause at the same time?

I’m feeling warm fuzzies already.

Hollywood Roadshow has partnered with Premiere Props and Super Auctions to auction off some very cool pieces of horror movie memorabilia on Saturday, October 20th at the Boneyard Haunted House in Arlington, TX. If you’re able to go to the auction, which kicks off at 11am, you’ll be able to tour the haunted house when you’re done, too. Nice!

Some of the props/memorabilia they’ll have up for auction include;

  • John Cusack’s screen-worn costume from 1408
  • Jungle Julia’s “Austin Hot 505 Wax” shirt from Grindhouse
  • Burt Gummer’s screen-worn shades from Tremors 3
  • Michael Myer’s “soiled” coveralls from Rob Zombie’s Halloween
  • Tons of other stuff will be up, too; that’s a very small list to give you an idea of what will be there.

    All the proceeds from the show will benefit Special Olympics, so you won’t have any reason for buyer’s remorse at the end of the day because you know you’ve done something good while indulging your geekiness. What more could you ask for!?!

    Hit up the official site for Hollywood Roadshow for more info!

    There’s New Information About Universal’s DOOM Reboot

    Published

    on

    Some fresh news about Universal’s Doom reboot has come across our paths that we’re excited to share with you. An anonymous source has told us that Tony Giglio (Timber Falls, Extraction, S.W.A.T. Under Siege) will be directing the film based on a script he wrote. Additionally, we’re being told that Amy Manson (Once Upon A Time, Being Human, The White Princess) has been cast as the film’s lead.

    We’ve also heard that Autonomous FX will be doing special effects, makeup, and demon design. The company has worked on such films as Sinister, I Spit On Your Grave, Stan Against Evil, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and more. However, they will not be doing the actor’s makeup, which is being handled by a different department.

    Elsewhere, Variety learned that the film is being handled by Universal’s non-theatrical division Universal 1440 Entertainment, which suggests the film is either going straight-to-video or it could go to a streaming platform, such as Netflix.

    Doom will begin filming in the near future in Bulgaria.

    ATTACK OF THE ADULT BABIES Comes Home on June 11

    Published

    on

    I wasn’t too fond of Attack of the Adult Babies when I saw it at FrightFest last year, but as it’s being released on home video in the UK on June 11 courtesy of distributor Nucleus Films, I’m sure it will manage to find a dedicated fanbase. Especially among those partial to toilet humor.

    Attack of the Adult Babies was directed by Dominic Brunt and stars Kurtis Lowe, Andrew Dunn, Charlie Chuck, Kate Coogan, Samantha Daniels, and The Human Centipede 2‘s Laurence R. Harvey. As its name suggests, the film focuses on a murderous group of elderly men in diapers, and yes, it really is as crass as it sounds.

    Special features will include a making of featurette and a selection of Brunt’s previous short films, and the first 1000 copies of the Blu-ray will feature a slip case designed by artist Graham Humphreys. So if you happen to be in the mood for a film where a person literally drowns in shit, you can pre-order Attack of the Adult Babies on Amazon.
