Thrillz a' poppin' in the realm of all things fun and terrifying. Let's examine the pieces...
...just sat thru the Blu-Ray edition of the uncut/unrated Hostel part 2 and I gotta say I actually enjoyed it better than the first one. This was more like the kind of over the top, almost tongue-in-cheek kind of torture porn I was hoping for from current horror wunderkind Eli Roth. There were even a couple of twists that I didn't see coming; always refreshing for this horror guy. Watching it in hi-def was almost unbearable during one masculinity-threatening scene, but Cridafer and I soldiered thru to the cheer-worthy end.
...Cridafer got me a handy dandy iPhone as an early birthday gift, which is going to make mobile blogging that much easier. Can't wait to try it out.
...remember those awesome pics I took in the catacombs beneath Paris? Someone has had the bright idea to use them as a setting for a new horror flick. Check out Catacombs on FEARnet.
...the first collection of Joe Hill short stories, 20th Century Ghosts, was just re-issued. The couple of stories I've read so far have been...I guess transcendent would be the only way I know how to describe them. Even if you are not a serious fan of the genre, I think you'd really enjoy Hill's touchingly creepy writing style.
...caught a showing of 30 Days of Night last weekend and the best I can say is...meh. It was ok I guess. Not the hair-raising adaptation of the graphic novel that I was hoping for but good enough to pass a couple of hours watching with some friends.
...the hosting service I use just added the ability to embed YouTube videos so I finally broke down and registered a channel. There's not really any content yet but if either of my readers want to bookmark it early, the location is www.youtube.com/horrorguywill If anyone comes across an appropriately creepy video you'd like to see posted here, just drop me a line.
...running a little late with the report, but Horror Guy's 7th Annual HorrorFest was a couple of weeks ago and there are several new pics to be posted in my gallery. Keep a bloodshot eye out for those and thanks to all the horror fans in attendance for making it another successful gathering!
