April Fool's Day Remake - No Thanks!


April Fool's Day is the next film we get to see a remake of (March 25th, beating Prom Night by a couple of weeks) and the trailer (which I just found on Arrow In The Head) can be seen above. I personally love the original April Fool's Day, and like every one of these things they're putting out lately, this particular remake looks incredibly mediocre. Not awful on a Terror Toons kind of level (my go-to choice for worst movie I've ever seen), it just seems kind of boring. The trailer kind of reminds of the movie The In-Crowd for some reason. Anyone else getting that? For some reason this one didn't get to go theatrical, so look for the DVD towards the end of March. This is actually quite a mind-boggling release date as April 1st, the actual April Fool's Day falls on a Tuesday this year. Why they didn't just wait a week to release it? It probably would've helped to boost sales, at least a little bit. Way to plan guys!

I say No Biff, No Deborah Foreman, No Sale.

EERIE - Out of a Land of Magic and Dreams





Here are 8 more issues of EERIE for everyone. This set contains issue #64, #65, #66, #68, #69, #71 and #72. I don't have #67 or #70, sorry about that, but I'll post them if I find them. I hope you are all fans of Hunter II and Exterminator because they show up in most of these issues.

I would've had these up sooner but I had to take in a viewing of Rambo earlier, which turned out to be rather awesome actually. Insanely violent and gory and possibly the loudest movie I've ever seen, my ears were actually ringing a bit afterwards. That probably had something to do with the 7-minute stretch with almost continuous machine gun fire. 300+ Dead bodies. Machine gun decapitation. Bow and arrow De-Eyeballization. Dalton-esque throat ripping. Canine collateral damage. Amputee summer camp. Gratuitous Michael Moriarty look-a-like. 3 and a Half Stars, Phelpster says check it out.

Anyway, your links. Split over 3 parts, you'll need all to view the issues:

Goblin - Buio Omega

Goblin's score from the 1979 film Buio Omega. You might be more familiar with the title Beyond the Darkness, as it's called on the Shriek Show DVD, it's also known as Buried Alive (which doesn't make any sense) and my personal favorite Blue Holocaust.

It's one of 200 films J D'Amato (aka Steven Benson / Anna Bergman / John Bird / Jim Black / Alexandre Borski / Alexandre Borsky / James Burke / Lee Castle / Lynn Clark / O.J. Clarke / Hugo Clevers / Joe Damato / Joe De Mato / Raf De Palma / Michael Di Caprio / Paolo Dominici / Dario Donati / Raf Donato / Romano Gastaldi / John Gelardi / Richard Haller / David Hills / Igor Horwess / George Hudson / Gerry Lively / Kevin Mancuso / A. Massaccesi / Aristice Massaccesi / Aristide Massaccesi / Aristide Massaccessi / Aristede Massacesi / Arizona Massachuset / Andrea Massai / J. Metheus / Peter Newton / Una Pierre / Zak Roberts / Joan Russel / Tom Salima / John Shadow / Fred Sloniscko Jr. / Federico Slonisco / Frederick Slonisco / Fédérico Slonisco / Federico Slonisko Jr. / Frederico Slonisko Jr. / Dan Slonisko / Federico Slonisko / Federiko Slonisko / Frederico Slonisko / Frederic Slonisko / Frederiko Slonisko / Fred Slonisko / Chana Lee Sun / Chang Lee Sun / Michael Wotruba / Robert Yip / Sarah Asproon / Donna Aubert) directed before his death in 1999 and one of my favorite of his that I've actually seen. But even though I think it's a good film (damn good, in fact), it's not one I find myself wanting to see again anytime soon due to the fact that it's a rather depressing - not to mention really gross - little movie, what with the necrophilia and cannibalism and all.

By the way, Cinzia Monreale (perhaps better known for her role as Emily in Fulci's The Beyond), who plays the corpse-ified Anna in the film has aged wonderfully as seen in the DVD interview she did a few years back. I know, that image is small, but check out the DVD if you can, she really looks amazing, for a non-horror fan, at least.

Anyway, here's your tracklist/link

1. Buio Omega (Main Titles) (02:52)
2. Quiet Drops (04:31)
3. Strive After Dark (02:30)
4. Pillage (02:20)

CREEPY - First and Best in Illustrated Horror Still!





Well, once again I'm barely getting this up in time, but I just made it. Of course if I missed Wednesday I could've just put them up the next day, wouldn't have been a huge deal. I do like getting them up the same day each week though. Here's a new set of Creepy for you all to enjoy. This latest set includes issues #50-#55.


Sorry about another lack of updates lately. I've been feeling a bit rough lately so I haven't really had the energy to do much recently, even something as relatively simple as updating the site. I'll try and pick up the pace a bit both here and over on Space Bastard, which is pretty much getting an update every 6-10 days at this point. I've got some cool stuff lined up for both sites as soon as I overcome this sudden laziness I've been struck with.

As always I want to give credit to the original scanner(s). Be sure to check over on Space Bastard later on tonight, I'll be posting some new stuff there soon.

Death By Metal - A Manchester Moruge Compilation

I planned on doing a "My favorite albums of 2007" post like I did last year, but that ended up taking a long time for me to do last time and I didn't really like the way it looked once it was done. So I thought I'd put together a compilation instead, featuring some of my favorite metal songs of the year. I call it Death By Metal. The compilation started off as a collection of Death Metal songs with the word Death in the title, but that ended up being more difficult to put together than you would think, so I thought it might be better as a year end type thing. Plus, this way I was able to mix it up and have an assortment of different metallic subgenres, a little something for everybody. I might do a non-metal compilation after this, for the anti-metal people out there but I haven't decided yet. I do get pretty bored pretty frequently, so I probably will.

Anyway, here's the tracklist for Death By Metal:

1. Lizzy Borden – Appointment With Death
2. Arch Enemy – The Last Enemy
3. Dark Tranquillity – The Mundane and the Magic
4. Novembre – Cobalt of March
5. The Duskfall – Deep In Your World
6. The Black Dahlia Murder – I Worship Only What You Bleed
7. Dawn of Tears - Blaspheme Natured Messiah
8. 3 Headed Monster – The Beast of Odo Island
9. Machine Men – Ghost of the Seasons
10. Darkest Hour – Demon(s)
11. Skeletonwitch – Fire From The Sky
12. Eldritch – Silent Flame
13. Scariot – Slaves
14. King Diamond – The Girl In The Bloody Dress
15. Dekapitator – Deathstrike Command
16. Nightmare – A Thrill of Death
17. Blood Tsunami – Rampage of Revenge

I put together a back cover for this one. The decapitated bear image is from an old poster from Who Slew Auntie Roo? (in case you're wondering) and Psychosis Records is something I just made up because I'm the type of guy who would make up a record label name for no good reason. Ignore all the fine print at the bottom, I just copied that more or less from something while making a CD cover template. Oh, and don't call that number unless you need to get in touch with Copasetik Recordings in London, four years ago.




2007 was an atrocious year for radio friendly music (Nickelback, Finger Eleven, any rap songs) but it was a great year for non-radio friendly music. Here's a very small list of some of the other music I enjoyed this year (that wasn't on the compilation already):

After Forever - After Forever
Agua De Annique - Air (Anneke van Giersbergen's new band)
Alcest - Souvenirs d'un autre monde
The Birthday Massacre - Walking With Strangers
Candlemass - King of the Grey Islands
Deathspell Omega - Fas-Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum
Dødheimsgard - Supervillain Outcast
Echoes of Eternity - The Forgotten Goddess
Epica - The Divine Conspiracy
God is an Astronaut - Far From Refuge
Hearts of Black Science - The Ghost You Left Behind
Indica - Kadonnut Puutarha
Neurosis - Given to the Rising
Shels - Sea of the Dying Dhow
Tristania - Illumination (Last album with Vibeke. Their new female vocalist, uh, not good.)
Virgin Black - Requiem - Mezzo Forte
Wolves in the Throne Room - Two Hunters

That's just stuff I can think of off the top of my head, there were a lot of great albums in the past 12 months, and I haven't even heard half of what I would've liked to. Feel free to leave a comment and tell me some music that you enjoyed that I might've overlooked.

While I'm here, I don't really like to call anything "the Worst" of anything, but I had to do just one; Worst Song of the Year: Soldja Boy - Crank That. I want to punch this guy in the nuts every time I hear this song, which, thanks to my job is pretty much every day. Of course, I'm a pacifist (not a hippy, just non-violent) and I believe punching someone in the nuts would be very un-pacifist-like of me. But seriously, after you've had a guy go "Ohh!" over 50 times in your song you'd think you'd tell him to shut the hell up. Easily the worst song I've heard since Gwen Stefani gave us Hollaback Girl. But of course it's one of the most popular songs of the year, but a long shot. Go figure.

Angela Morley - Watership Down

This is from the 1978 animated film Watership Down. I've actually never seen the film, it's supposed to be excellent, or so I've heard, but it seems to have trouble staying in print.

2. Venturing Forth (01:11)
3. Into The Mist (01:24)
4. Crossing The River And Onward (02:24)

6. Through The Woods (02:49)
7. The Rat Fight (00:41)
8. Violet's Gone (01:21)
9. Climbing The Down (01:41)
10. Bright Eyes And Interlude (03:06)

You're closer to death than I am.

CREEPY - Ring in the New Year With the First and Best in Illustrated Horror!




Well, it's 2008, and what better way to celebrate (a day or two late) with some more Creepy? I've got 7 new issues today, issue #43, #44, #45, #46, #47, #48 and #49. You may have noticed that I'm getting these up pretty early this time, it's only been Wednesday for a few hours, but I couldn't sleep so I had two options - Lay there like an idiot staring at the ceiling, or find something productive to do. So I chose this.

Split over 4 parts on Sharebee. You need all 4 parts to read the issues. Credit goes out to those who took the time to scan these in.
