We're not saying that everything cool happens on Friday the 13th, but cool things seem to happen every Friday the 13th. On April 13th a new idea in entertainment will launch with a horror-themed premium channel on YouTube Channel. This is BlackBoxTV.
After posting a video of a paranormal investigation of the former home of Lizzie Borden that went viral, ATF Paranormal Investigation Team decided to take things a step further. Now ATF is announcing a web series that will air on their YouTube Channel entitled Mass Most Haunted.
The cool thing about viral campaigns? You just never know what they're in promotion of. Case in point: this latest video that appeared on YouTube, which shows different spots around the world in which strange and monstrous noises could be heard.
There is something enjoyable about a good mash-up. You take the best parts of a few things and wad them together to make something new and, hopefully, at least as enjoyable as the original works. We've got the ultimate horror mash-up for you in The Horror Portfolio.
Back around Halloween 2011 Google announced it would be creating 100+ "channels" on YouTube for original programming, generating about 25 hours of new programming per day; and one such channel just announced during the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is BlackBoxTV, which is striving to be the destination for the horror, thriller, and sci-fi crowd on YouTube. Considering its pedigree, it just might pull it off!
Words kind of fail us this week as we bring to you yet another WTF Friday video. If you've never heard the name Dwight David Honeycutt before, we can assure you that after viewing this video, you're not likely to forget it.
Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a channel called MTV that actually ran music videos 24 hours a day. Hard as it may be to believe, there used to be a time when Music Video Television actually ran music videos and not just TV shows about skanks and idiots.
Around these parts we're huge paranormal buffs. There's nothing better than witnessing something insane that no matter how hard you try you simply cannot explain. So without further ado we've assembled a few clips that we hope will send some chills down your spine this weekend!
In 1983 David Sheldon was busy shooting Grizzly 2: The Predator, aka Predator: The Concert. Grizzly 2 boasted early performances by George Clooney, Laura Dern, and the Internet's current golden boy, Charlie Sheen, who plays a hiker who serves as the bear's first victim.
Sometimes a little music can make anything better. Not that there was anything wrong with the original Predator in the first place, but the soothing sounds of Schwarzenegger really help put this one over the top and into the choppah.
No amount of words can prepare you for the lunacy you are about to witness. We're still shaking. Way back in 1982 both E.T. and John Carpenter's The Thing waged intergalactic war for box office supremacy. Audiences opted for the friendlier alien movie. Now, decades later, those friendly aliens are back and they want more than just candy and telephones.
If there's one thing we love around here it's claymation. It's just so much more fascinating than anything we've seen that's CGI. Another thing we love? The Exorcist a.k.a. the movie that single-handedly ruined the chances of success for just about any filmmaker who dared to make a possession flick. Put them both together and you get one thing ... A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF WIN.
Warning: This special tag team Valentine's edition of The WTF Friday Video of the Week may prove too disturbing for sensitive viewers.
Leonard Nimoy is no stranger to fandom. Legions of "Star Trek" lovers gather frequently to worship at the ever-so-logical altar of Spock. Have you ever wondered whose altar Spock worships at? Well, thanks to our recurring WTF Friday Video of the Week segment, you're about to find out!
For us to do a story on something non-fictitious having to do with ghosts, aliens, etc, it has to have a certain mind-blowing aspect to it. Consider our minds officially friggin' blown.
