Hello, Jana here,

 

David-Duchovny

 

Sensationalism has long fueled the entertainment world. Whether it’s something that comes from the mind of a creative film maker or ripped straight from the headlines. No one has provided more fodder for an ugly, splashy headline than the murders surrounding cult-leader Charles Manson. Hollywood has been fascinated with the grisly murders since they occurred in the late 1960’s. The public interest in the slayings has led to the story being told in dozens of ways. The story never gets old, either. Pure evil is always going to draw some interest.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Quentin Tarantino brings so many things to mind, first and foremost, a kick-ass movie with top notch acting. Such is what I hope continues for the director as he is said to be tackling his first true-crime project on the Manson Family murders.

Jana B. here,

Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie and Bret Easton Ellis are teaming up with Alcon Television to develop a project for Fox that takes us back to the morbid and attention grabbing incidents surrounding the Manson Family and the murder spree that ensued in August of 1969. Some of us may not have been alive during that time, but if you pay any attention at all to current events you have probably seen the different appeals and hearings for release some of the members have gone through since then. I know the history inside and out but it’s just because I’m a little different than normal people. I am fascinated by serial killers and have read everything on the subject I can get my hands on. At one point, I wanted to be a Psychiatrist that specialized in serial killer tracking…just like Alex Cross from the James Patterson novels. I didn’t end up doing that, but I still read or watch everything on the subject. Some nights I sleep with a baseball bat under the bed , each night I’m grateful for the shotgun that is less than 5 feet from me.

James Franco’s Next Project Involves Charles Manson!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 18th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

james franco image

James Franco will do just about anything in life.  It’s insane to think about.  I mean, this year he has a few films on the table.  One being the epic Sam Raimi directed ‘Oz the Great and Powerful‘, which will cater to everyone.  But then he has a few gay and or porn related films on the chopping block too, which are ‘Kink‘, ‘Lovelace‘, and ‘Interior Leather Bar‘. Let’s not forget the film ‘Spring Breakers‘, where he plays a drugdealing killer named Alien.  Oh yeah, and he is on a daytime soap opera too when he is not hosting the Oscars or winning awards, or going to school, or acting in pot smoking comedies with his friends.  The guy is an all around huge talent.  It’s very impressive.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

from-hell-main

From Hell‘ may sound like the name of a Johnny Depp film from the early 2000’s and you would be right. What began as a 500 page graphic novel by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, then re-worked into a 20th Century Fox film starring Depp and Robbie Coltrane. There may be a bit of a detective vibe here but don’t expect a Sherlock-type reveal. Where Jack the Ripper was quite selective of his victims, the murders themselves created an equality among the classes with fear being the common denominator. Thus ends today’s master class in ‘From Hell‘.

Hi Bryan Here….

I have no idea who made this, but it is all sorts of AWESOME.  It looks like it was colored with crayons.  “How long could we maintain? I wondered. How long until one of us starts raving and jabbering at this boy? What will he think then? This same lonely desert was the last known home of the Manson family; will he make that grim connection when my attorney starts screaming about bats and huge manta rays coming down on the car? If so, well, we’ll just have to cut his head off and bury him somewhere, ’cause it goes without saying that we can’t turn him loose. He’d report us at once to some kind of outback Nazi law enforcement agency and they’ll run us down like dogs. Jesus, did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?”

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Texas Frightmare Weekend Recap!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 7th, 2014

Maggie V. Here….

To put it lightly, ‘Texas Frightmare Weekend‘ was AWESOME.  From the amazing guests to the outrageous costumes, to the comics, toys, posters, and movie props – all of it was a blast! This was my first time at Texas Frightmare Weekend so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But needless to say my expectations were succeeded. It was at the Hyatt Hotel at DFW airport and by the time I got there on Friday, there were already a ton of people there. This hotel is perfect for this event.  There was ample room for everyone to move around and everything was easily accessible. I immediately went to see Mr. George Romero (the godfather of zombie films) and Tom Savini (makeup artist extraordinaire). Their lines were fairly long but they moved quickly. Romero looks great and seemed to have a great time while Savini looks like he is tired of the convention circuit. It made me laugh. Everyone who worked at the event was very helpful as well.
