*UPDATED* Boogey Nights



Boogeyman 2When I woke up this morning, I took part in my usual routine. Went outside, then ran back after realizing I was still naked. Much to the chagrin of my neighbors. Ahem … went outside (again) and grabbed the morning paper.

Immediately I turned to the obituaries. Score! I wasn’t in them. That meant it was time to hop in the shower.

There I was scrubbing away at my ass and contemplating the meaning of life when I had a startling vision — You know what we need? A sequel to Boogeyman!

In a moment of Twilight Zone type strangeness, after I was done rinsing off, I turned on the computer and was led via e-mail to a story posted on Production Weekly that sent shivers down my spine and then straight out of my ass.

Hold on to your sanity, folks! We ARE getting Boogeyman 2!

Jeff Betancourt, the editor of the upcoming The Grudge 2, is set to make his directorial debut on this horror sequel. You know how it goes: Work on one sequel, work on them all.

This time out the story will focus on the exploits of a young woman with a long-term phobia of the Boogeyman. Tired of dealing with her nighttime terror, she voluntarily checks herself into a loony bin in hopes of getting a grip. Of course in true horror fashion, shit like this never works out and spooky hi-jinks will surely abound.

This just in — The following casting call has gone out:

FEMALE – 18-21, beautiful, likable, warm, and intelligent…

MALE – 18-21, twin brother, cured of his fear of the Boogeyman, warm, supportive, eager…

FEMALE – 30s, professional, down-to-earth, doctor, scared to death when she leaned that her mother’s schizophrenia was hereditary…

FEMALE – 18-21, attractive, patient at the clinic…

MALE – 40s, psychiatrist at the clinic…

MALE – 18-21, clean-cut, amiable, a patient at the clinic, terrified of the dark…

MALE – 18-21, a scared and insecure young man, he is another patient, terrified of any kind of germs…

MALE – seen in flashback, overly stern dad who wants the children to get over their fear of the Boogeyman…

FEMALE – seen at 8, screaming with glee after receiving a towering doll house for her birthday, UNTIL she watches the Boogeyman kill her parents…

MALE – seen at 8, delighted, but scared to go alone to the bathroom because of the Boogeyman…

FEMALE – 30-40s, orderly at the clinic…

MALE – 30s, orderly who sells marijuana…

MALE – 30-40s, businesslike, detective, investigates crime scene at the clinic…

MALE OR FEMALE – 30-40s, crime scene analyst, alerts the detective when discovering a decapitated head…

FEMALE – seen in flashback, cheerful mother…

Boogeyman 2 is set to begin production this November in L.A.

Ryan Schifrin’s Abominable Gets a Sasquatch-Sized Blu-Ray



A recent scientific study concluded that since the year 2000 there have 4,374,139 killer Bigfoot movies. 2006’s Abominable is one of the better Sasquatch-ploitation flicks of the era. Now this creature feature is getting a collector’s edition blu-ray complete with a brand new cut of the gruesome flick.

MVD Rewind Collection has announced they’re planning a special edition of Ryan Schifrin’s gory Hitchcock-influenced Bigfoot flick Abominable, which cast Matt McCoy as a wheelchair bound man who begins Rear Window-ing a psycho Sasquatch terrorizing his hot-blooded cabin neighbors that then turns his big foot towards him. Lance Henriksen, Dee Wallace, Jeffrey Combs, Tiffany Shepis, Haley Joel, Karin Anna Cheung, and Paul Gleason co-star.

It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It’s been hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us?

After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

This won’t be your typical collector’s edition as not only will be getting a new high definition transfer of the film originally shot on 35mm, this will also include an all-new cut of the film with improved CGI-effects overseen by filmmaker Schifrin and editor Chris Conlee with enhanced color timing and correction.

Horror Retro Caps Boasts Hats Featuring The Lamp, The Video Dead, Rosemary’s Killer and more!



Yesterday I was stumbling around on Instagram and I came across this killer account called @horrorretrocaps. They make horror movie-themed hats and I felt the need to share their work with you guys today.

It’s not so much the hats (which are cool), or the quality of the product (which looks sound as a pound) but it is the obvious love of horror by the guys behind the scenes that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

I mean sure there are products like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But they also have hats celebrating such classics as The Outing, The Lamp (hell, yeah!), The Gate, Zombie Lake, and The Video Dead.


On top of that, the product that sealed the deal for me was their Rosemary’s Killer hat. As some of you might know, Rosemary’s Killer is the alternate title of Joseph Zito’s underrated slasher The Prowler. That alone just earned them horror-cred for days.

You can check out some of their choice caps below and then head on over to their account to purchase some product: @horrorretrocaps.

All caps are $15 plus $4 shipping in the U.S., and he also takes requests for $20.
