Tourist Trap

Let me be honest--TOURIST TRAP scares the FUCK out of me! If there was ever a movie that should be "re-imagined" it is this movie. A group of young adults find themselves trapped at a tourist trap where someone or something is hunting them.


I have a very special place in my heart for the classic Universal Monsters--especially DRACULA. I love this movie.

This is the movie that probably scares the FUCK out of me every time I watch it: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. My dad took me and my friend to the Nile Theater to see and it scared me so bad that I slept in my parents room that night. There is just something so raw about this film--you cannot escape it no matter how hard you try. The part that scares me the most is the bathtub scene.

Halloween 2

Nothing compares to the original HALLOWEEN, but HALLOWEEN 2 has quite a bit of chill and thrills in it. I personally find it very scary!

Bakersfield Comic-Con

Finally! The first Bakersfield Comic Convention was held this past Sunday, and I have to admit that I was actually impressed with the booths and vendors who were in attendance. I was on my quest to complete my BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS and THE OUTSIDERS and I was very successful in my efforts. Reading these great older issuses makes me realize that I am just not enjoying the newest incarnation of the BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS series. I miss Halo!


Although the original version of John Carpenter's THE FOG isn't considered one of this best, I have always enjoyed it. It really made the fog seem scary! The remake was HORRIBLE.

Perhaps one of the scariest ghost movie I have ever seen,
THE CHANGELING is so spooky!

Everyday until Halloween, I am going to be sharing with you some of my favorite horror movies. My mom and dad took me to see THE HOWLING and I love this movie!

Hey! Just saw the trailer for the remake of MY BLOODY VALENTINE (which will be shown in 3-D) and I think that it looked very spooky, unlike the recent FRIDAY THE 13th trailer.


According to writer Marc Andreyko, who posted the information on his Facebook page, Manhunter has once again been cancelled at DC. Andreyko wrote:
Marc Andreyko sadly announces Manhunter's cancellation. again - anyone up for a THIRD letter-writing campaign ('specially retailers)?
The cancellation will be the book’s second. The first came with issue #25, and was due to sales. Despite being critically acclaimed, the series, which told the story of Kate Spencer a newest iteration of the hero in the DC Universe, did not see sales sufficient enough to maintain it as an ongoing. There was considerable fan outcry at the cancellation, which was noticed by DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio, At WizardWorld: Philadelphia in 2006, DiDio announced that the series would return for a limited engagement, with the promise that, if there was fan support, the series would return as an ongoing.
A year passed between issues #26-#30, and then, in June the series returned as an ongoing with issue #31. Sales estimates of issue #33 (which shipped in August) suggest that the issue sold roughly 12,000 copies, down from an estimated 15,000 copies for issue #31.
When contacted by Newsarama, DC Comics confirmed that Manhunter will end with issue #38 in January.

I just wanted to let all of you know how proud I am of Paul and I for volunteering for the NO ON PROP 8 campaign. I was under the impression that Paul and I would be stuffing envelopes, but we were told that we were going to call registered voters and ask them to vote NO ON PROP 8, which I have to admit was surprisingly scary! I was really amazed at how many voters were already voting NO ON PROP 8 issue. Only a small amount of people told me that they were voting "yes" (their reasons were that they wanted to 'protect the children'). Saturday afternoon, the boys and I are going to a rally to encourage others to vote NO ON PROP 8.

This morning when I was finally able to drag myself out of bed, I realized that Tim had forgotten to throw out the trash. So, I left the safety of my house and proceeded to take the trash out--when I saw a "Yes on Prop 8" banner on my neighbor's yard. I was in shock. Not because of the banner, but because this particular neighbor told Tim and I that his brother was gay and that they were best friends. This is so sad.

Paul and I went to see QUARANTINE yesterday. I thought the movie was suppenceful and the acting was incredible. Please check this movie out and support horror movies!


Now that the new 90210 has found success (thus that full-season pickup), will Melrose Place be next?
The good news: Series creator
Darren Star says, per earlier rumors, that it's a possibility he'd be interested in pursuing and acknowledged that it's been up for discussion. "Regardless of whether they do it or not, whether I'm part of it or not, I think it would be a fun thing to do," he told "I wouldn't be surprised if it happened — If it can be put together in the right way."
Plus, the new 90210's success — and the requisite fandom surrounding it — is not lost on Star. "I love it," he said of the redux. "I mean, it’s incredible to see a show that I was a part of, that many people were a part of for so many years, come back, and that the audience still has an affection for the show."
The bad news? No "official" discussions have yet taken place. Despite Star's enthusiasm, the TV veteran, who also created
Sex and the City, said only, "There are no guarantees." Yet.
Star spoke to just before being honored by
GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) at Fridays' annual Respect Awards, where Melrose Place, which included a gay character, was a particularly apt example of his commitment to organization's cause. Discussing the motivation behind the boundary-pushing that he's known for, Star explained, "I think I try in some ways to always look at the world the way I’d like it to be." He continued, "Not send a message but just say, with a show like Melrose Place, you want to include a gay character when everybody’s in a building in West Hollywood."
"Sometimes the networks are a little behind with the times but I think now they’ve caught up a lot," he reflected. "I think the networks have transformed the terms of how they deal with gay characters and how they include gay characters on their shows."
It wasn't like that, though, when Melrose first arrived. "It was like, 'You can have him, but let’s not hear too much from him," Star recalled. "Or, 'Let’s certainly not give him any romantic relationships,' and that's all changed. I'm proud to have been able to have the opportunity to kind of help that change."
Now that some of the issues Star helped introduced into network television are more accepted, there are new topics to tackle on TV.
What would he include in a potential, next series? "I think people are very polarized right now," he said. "And there's culture wars going on in this country. I think that people have really strong, different points of view about fundamental things. And that always creates good, thoughtful stories.

Creatures of the night!

I have now officially watched every season of TALES FROM THE CRYPT since I have been off of work and I have been loving every minute of it! Wouldn't be fun if LOGO had a gay themed horror series--like TALES FROM THE CRYPT?
