Ryan Murphy has made one hell of a name for himself in the history of successful television shows with writing and creating credits from ‘Nip/Tuck‘, ‘Glee‘ and the several incarnations of ‘American Horror Story‘. All things considered, Murphy knows how to scare the crap out of us, or make us want to randomly break out in song and dance in the cafeteria, which for some of us, would be more scary than an episode of AHS.

Jana B. here,

 

Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis is an actress that has a celebrated career and is in high demand for film and television roles. CBS has inked a deal with Curtis to star in an untitled David Marshall Grant drama pilot.

The ABC Family network has just inked a deal for a new horror television series from writer Jeff Dixon, called ‘The Final Girls‘. Get this…horror starlet Jamie Lee Curtis is set to star with Steve Miner directing and executive producing. Of course this is just the pilot episode, but I’m willing to bet that this pilot goes to series fast.

4K UHD Review: ‘Halloween’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

John Carpenter’s original ‘Halloween‘ film is iconic, classic, amazing, scary, and still holds up to this day. It paved the way for modern horror movies and slashers and spawned numerous sequels. This film has been released dozens of times over the years on various formats, but this is the first time in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision, which is an upgrade, to say the least. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of the movie, this is a slow burn of a masked killer with supernatural abilities and demonic forces who stalks and kills his victims, most of them high-school students. He’s the one in the dark corners, behind walls, and hidden in the bushes waiting to pounce and brutally kill you.

Fantastic Fest Film Review: ‘Halloween’ 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 21st, 2018

The original Halloween is barred none the best of the slasher genre. It is a simple story, a young boy kills his sister and is put in a mental institution, 16 years later he breaks out and goes on a rampage murdering people on Halloween. Michael Myers is terrifying in a way that Jason or Freddy isn’t. He feels more “realistic” in his behaviors in the first movie. Michael is just an unstoppable force of death who Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) runs in to. All of the sequels to Halloween try too hard to explain things or add significance. Sure, there are some fun entries that with the right amount of inebriation are quick fun. But ultimately they all abandon what was so great about the first, its simplicity. Halloween, 2018, erases all of the sequels in just 3-4 lines of dialogue and goes right back to the roots of what made the original such a groundbreaking horror film.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

53fe9c57-1190-4d61-b197-fcda11fc89af

The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:

Film Review: ‘Spare Parts’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2015

Beka Perlstein, Here…

thumbnail_18924

Spare Parts reminds you why it’s always a good idea to root for the underdog. You may not have heard of this film, or its director, or maybe even the majority of its actors… but that’s no reason to take a hard pass. Spare Parts is based on the true story of a group of Hispanic high school students who form a robotics team that goes on to compete in a national competition against college teams who are better equipped, better trained and better funded. Needless to say, the obstacles they face along the way are many.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Good news, everyone. Anchor Bay Entertainment and Scream Factory have finally partnered up to give us horror fans something we have wanted for far too long. Not one but two different Blu-Ray box sets that spans all of the ‘Halloween‘ films. There will be tons of new bonus features, every film in high-definition, collectible packaging, and a 40-page Booklet. You can expect this amazing set in time for Halloween season, specifically on September 23rd. It’s about time they did this, because Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street already have box sets. Glad to see ‘Halloween‘ is catching up with everyone else. Now if we can just get that ‘Phantasm‘ box set to release in the US instead of the UK, all will be well. And today, they have unveiled the amazing Box Art it comes in. This is Fantastic. I Can’t wait. And you can pre-order the set now for 30% off.

If the words, “ a long time ago, we used to be friends, but I haven’t thought of you lately at all,” make you feel nostalgic for a blond super sleuth, you are a fan of Rob Thomas’ underappreciated show Veronica Mars, which ran for three seasons (2004-2007). For those of you who didn’t watch the show, do not fear – Veronica Mars, the movie, will make you a convert.

Film Review: ‘Veronica Mars’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

veronica-mars-movie-logan

 A long time ago, we used to be friends, but I haven’t thought of you lately at all. That is until about a year ago, ‘Veronica Mars‘ creator Rob Thomas and Veronica herself Kristen Bell took to the crowd-funder website Kickstarter and asked us fans of the amazing tv show ‘Veronica Mars‘ to fund a feature film. Warner Bros. told Bell and Thomas that if they successfully funded the $2 million dollar budget, that they would match that and distribute and market the movie.

Hi, Bryan and Lisa S. Here…..

9d8c1968aa60cdb4dca86ed6790187e2

 

I had some help writing this article with writer, Lisa S.   Lisa hails from netherworld of the Northwest and is not above watching zombie movies for 24 hours straight.  She loves all kinds of scary movies and is an avid music fan.  You might even find her perusing the used DVD bin at your local movie store looking for old Ernest movies and Sifl and Olly discs.  Lisa helped quite a bit with this article and you can expect her read many more of her articles on this site from this point forward.  Give her a warm welcome and visit her online book and record store HERE.

Now let’s get to the list.  Here are Boomstick’s Top 20 Female Badasses in film and television.  I tried to keep it in the horror/sci-fi genre, but a couple of action star made it in there.  These females are the most hardcore we feel, by how much ass they kick, their courage, and their sex appeal.  We dare you to find better role models and badasses than this.  Enjoy the list.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

The road to Wrestlemania never looked so bleak as it does now for all those loyal members of the WWE Universe that have proudly Bought In. Pittsburgh, PA was the scene of one of the most brutal unjustified beatings I have witnessed. RAW came to us live from the Steel City and was filled with its typical hard hitting action and more Intercontinental Championship shenanigans, but it was all darkened by the actions of one man, Randy Orton.
