Quick thoughts on the HALLOWEEN teaser poster.

Image
Okay, so the teaser poster for Halloween (2018) has been released.  The movie comes out in exactly six months.  And we've finally gotten our first look at the mask.

It's not horrible.  Not really what I was expecting.  I was expecting something maybe not as worn and weathered (although we have been told several times that this is supposed to be the same mask from the 1978 killing spree).

Obviously, I'll save full judgment until I see the mask in action in the movie...or maybe a trailer.  But let's address the elephant in the room: it's very Rob Zombie-ish.  And honestly, that's not necessarily a bad thing.  It's been forty years -- of course, the mask is going to be aged.

The second thing I immediately noticed is that this version of the mask looks uncannily similar to "The Butcher" (a fan mask made by Night Owl Studios).  That's always been a fan favorite as far as concept masks go.

The biggest nitpick I have with this poster -- in all hones…

My short film, remastered (10th anniversary)!

Image
On the night of March 22, 2008, my brother and I filmed a short little slasher chase scene. We didn't think much of it at the time, but it turned into quite a process. In a span of 4 hours, we had this thing shot, edited, scored and uploaded to YouTube. My brother did 100% of the sound FX and editing and creating a credit sequence. I merely co-starred and directed.

I managed to find all the original video files from that shoot (which we shot with a cheap digital camera -- not a camcorder -- using the "video" function). So I thought a 10-year re-edit was in order. My brother now lives in Florida so getting him back to help wasn't an option. Since the film was my vision, editing it myself wasn't too bad (we used Windows Movie Maker originally, I used iMovie this time).

I intended for this new cut to be released on the 10th anniversary (March 22), but that didn't happen. However, I did manage to finish the sound FX on it today and got it uploaded.  I tried to c…

Quick thoughts on THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT.

Image
Finally got around to seeing The Strangers: Prey at Night this past Thursday.  And honestly, I'm surprised by how much I liked it.  The tone takes an almost complete 180 from the first movie -- and really, that's what it needed to do.

The first movie, in my opinion, is a classic in its own right.  Though it wasn't the first home invasion horror movie, it probably did the theme best.  It was an extremely slow-burning movie until the last ten minutes.  Then shit really started going down.

And the new movie gets right to it.  The movie opens with the strangers arriving at an elderly couple's mobile home in the middle of the night.  The scene is very non-violent but it does a great job at establishing the tone and feel for the rest of the movie.

We're later introduced to our main characters: a mom and dad and their two teenage kids.  The family is making a quick overnight stop at the mobile home park before taking the daughter to a boarding school.  We also find out t…

Help me reach 1,000 YouTube subscribers!

Image
Okay, I'm on my knees.  I need to reach 1,000 channel subscribers on YouTube to keep my videos monetized.  As of right now, I have 705.  So I need 295 more.  Even if you hate my channel and never watch my vlogs, please consider subscribing anyway because deep down, you love me, you really, really love me.

Maybe you don't love me.  That's fine.  Just help a brother out.  I will returns subs if that helps.

For the record, I don't disagree with YouTube's new monetization policies.  I think it'll actually help them moving forward.  But it's hurting me in the present.

Also, and let this be on the record, too...I don't make a lot of money on YouTube.  A couple bucks a month, tops.  Honest.  But that extremely small amount helps with keeping my domain name(s) and helps with running MorbidMuch, Sequel Buzz, Scream-Thrillogy and Haunted House Indy.

Okay, I'm done with my plea.  Thanks for reading!
