October week 3 news update

Time is ticking away to the witching hour of Halloween but let's enjoy it while we can. Get those pumpkins carved, that candy bought, and get those horror movies viewed.

Last weeks horror host news, was packed full with horror host Halloween Special information. Well this week is going to be an update on one special and some other frights.

Last week, I reported on the Screaming Soup Halloween special was coming and it had official arrived this week on Thursday. It was a wonderdful 36 minute spooktacular. This episode featured the review of the Basket Case trilogy and the final showdown between Deadwest and Buzzkill. I never seen the Basket Case films but the Screaming Soup crew seems to covered the films like they usually do in their own wonderful way. After the review it leads to the final battle of epic Proportions. Make sure during the battle and other parts of the episode to look out for the whose who of horror. All I can say is a certain bat wielding hairy little critter becomes a true hero. This episode was a nice close to the season.

And the ending of the Episode it gives you a little tease of what is to come in January of next year. You thought Marvel Civil war was the battle of the century. Well I think season fours battle of Troma Vs. Full Moon will be even more crazier. So many questions need to be answer and so long to wait. All I know is I hope Deadwest is ready to ref this horror showdown. I am excited for the next season.

You can view this fun special below:

The next Halloween special which looks to be coming sometime next week is "The Mummy and the Monkey show" special. The special will be number two to last years special. The special will be entitled, "The Mummy and the Monkey's Pumpkin Spice Halloween Special II." The special was filmed at the 7 Floor of Hell. Which is a haunted house located in Middelburg Heights, OH. It looks like it will be a scary good time. This week they just released an intro to their special. That is all the information so far about the special but once I gain more information about it. I will report on it.

Below you can watch the intro to the special:

The cover of Horrorhound

Almost every week, I have some kind Elvira news. Especially with her new book coming out and her KNOTT'S Berry Farm show. She was most recently featured in one of my favorite bi-monthly horror magazine called, "Horrorhound."Within the pages of the magazine they first have short interview entitled," 10 Questions with Cassandra Peterson and Elvira." The interview was conducted by Jason Hignite. It is a fun interview and the questions aren't the usual questions which is great. The Elvira answers to the questions are hilarious and Cassandra answers them seriously. I like a weird version of good cop and just goofy cop. It makes the the interview easy to read and just plain funny.

There is also a nice retrospect entitled," Elvira Mistress of The Dark." It was also done by Jason Hignite the same writer of the interview. In the retrospect he clearly maps out all of Elvira's career from her start to current time. It even covers her various movie and T.V. appearances. Also has some nice facts about her merchandise and some other fun facts. It worth a read and you might just learn something new.

Another interview in Horrorhound that is horror host related is entitled, "The Art of Horror Hosting: "Count Cool Rider." Again another interview done by Jason Hignite. This article is about Danny Kroker, better know as Danny from "Counting Cars" on the History Channel. In the interview the count is asked various questions about his career as a host. It is a very interesting interview.And you may just learn something you didn't know such as he did the character up until 2012. If your horror host fan than this issue is worth to pick up.

Count Cool Rider

The next horror host news is just a small update on Tales of the Crypt. It was reported earlier in the year that TNT was working on bring the show back. It looks like the show will run for an hour and will be airing in Fall of 2017. It will be the same format with the Crypt Keeper and different horror stories being shown.

Many see the Crypt Keeper as a host of sorts and others don't. I am personally in the middle of this. I feel like he was a host of the horror stories but he wasn't a host to horror of scifi movies. Which most hosts focus on bringing life back to those cheesy movies of the past. Its hard to say but needless to say the Keeper is coming back next year. I'll report more on it when I see more information. so check back.
He's coming back.

Last week,I had an exclusive on this blog for you all. An introduction of a new horror host. Who was Slash from the show "Graveyard Tales."  This week he just sent me a promo for his first episode and it looks great. I am looking forward to seeing what else he has in store for us. I wish him the best of luck with his first episode and his show period. Check back for his premier episode, which will be coming soon.


That is all for the Horror Host news this week. Check back next week for more.

Let's move on to some horror new.

Last week, I reported on the king of the monsters was returning with the help of Toho studio again.  He recently returned in the 28th installment of the franchise "Shin Godzilla." It came out to an atounding success of millions in Japan. Now it was our turn last week when it was released as a limited releases. And kast Tuesday was the last day of the limited run. With the limited releases the movie brought in $1, 537, 190. That was with only 490 theaters showing it around America. Could you imagine if they had a full run in more theaters.

Since the success, It was announced it was announced that the FUNimation distribution company will extended the release. They are going to have a special matinee on Saturday October 22th  in 200 theaters. And than continuing showings in certain theaters across America until October 27th. If you want know where you can see it. You just have to visit the FUNimation website.

Since there was so much Horror host news this week I thought I would just give you and update on the one horror new story this week. But I felt bad so I thought I would give you a treat and post a full movie you can view below. This movie is a William Castle classic 13 Ghosts. It is so much better than the horrible gory remake they came out with. It is even better when you can watch it in three-D with the glasses. The glasses would also make the ghosts appear and pop out at you as they did within the story of the movie. No wonder he was the king of gimmicks.

Enjoy and until next week stay creepy.

That is all for the horror host news this week.

I am a giant Godzilla fan as many of you may know from all the posts on Facebook and posts on the blog. This week marks the return of the Toho company to their lovable radioactive monster in America. Between October 11-18th the movie has been released in U.S. and Canada. It is being shown in 114 theaters. The film is being distributed by Funimation Films. The same company that distributed Attack on Titan live action movie in America.

The directors of the film is Hideaki  Anno (creator of "Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (the director of the live action Attack on Titan). This film is the 29th Godzilla film that Toho has made. It is historic that this movie continues their 62 year old history of this iconic monster. I am looking forward to this it seems like tickets are being sold out quickly. Get them while you can.

Trailer for the Movie:

Next two stories both have a little Freddy Krueger in them. Robert Englund has really embraced the character of  Freddy over the years.

Last weekend, Robert England was in Florida for the Spooky Empire horror convention. Sadly Hurricane Mathew hit the area and the convention was canceled due to safety concerns. But before the convention "Florida Today" conducted an interview with Robert Englund.

In the interview, Robert brought up a concept of what he would like to do if he made his own Nightmare on Elm Street. This is what he said in the interview about the concept, " If I was in control of my own Nightmare on Elm Street movie I have an idea I would like to see. I thought it would it would be great if the children of the previous victims, or just kids who grew up hearing about stories of Freddy, were each haunted by their own version of Freddy. Kids grew up hearing stories about this Freddy Krueger guy and the awful things he did envision him in their own way, and that is the version that begins to haunt them."

I think this sounds like an interesting concept. There could be multiple forms of Freddy in the movie. Each person has their own idea of what is scary to them. I would like to see this. Would you? I am posting the full interview below for you to read if you want.

The article from Florida today:
Dream Interview with Freddy Krueger Interview                

This next story is about the ultimate slasher horror icon crossover that never happen and why it never happen by one of the possible stars. In 2003, one of the ultimate slasher crossovers happen. Freddy vs. Jason. This was fans ultimate dream ever since the ending of "Jason Goes to Hell" and Freddy's glove came out of the ground to grab Jason's mask. When fans finally did get the ultimate death match between the two, it came with mix reviews. There was some issues with the film such as the story, missing of Kane Hodder behind the mask, and not enough slasher action. That is my personal opinion.

After the movie came out with some semi success. Many names were thrown out for who would be the next horror icon to join these two. One of those names was Ash from the evil dead series. There was even a script written for movie. But nothing happen movie wise but the script was made into a comic book and even spawned a sequel. It was an interesting concept and seemed like it would have worked.

In the Interview they asked Bruce, "Aside from Freddy and Jason, were any other crossovers ever discussed? Always thought Evil Dead/Hellraiser would be good." Bruce answered to the question was, " I'll be honest with you. I'm not real interested in a crossovers. One of the main reason why 'Ash vs. Freddy vs. Jason' did not come to pass is because we couldn't control any other characters than Ash. That felt like a creatively bankrupt way to go. Not to mention, your splitting the proceeds three ways with partners you may not want."  

I believe that makes perfect sense for reason of it not being made. Sam Raimi and Bruce both worked really hard to shape Ash to become a horror Icon. And they may have creative control over the character in the movie but they had no control over the rest of the plot. And the movie could make Ash look weak or change his backstory completely. I think it would been too many cooks in the kitchen. I think that is what may have happen to the first film that caused some issues with the plots and casting. And splitting the money, I am sure would also be hard to do. It's a shame it didn't work out but at least we got a chance to still view these icons. Ash is still going strong with his T.V. series 'Ash vs. Evil Dead'. And their has been rumors that Elm Street and Friday 13th might be having new movies coming out.

Zacharley update

Last couple weeks., I have been staying on top of the story of Zacherley being hospitalize recently before his birthday. I reported last week that he was hospitalize for digestive issues and that it looked like he would be back on his feet before his birthday. The Latest update from his website is that he has been released from the hospital. It seems like he was released from the hospital last weekend. All Zacherley had to say on the day he was released was, "What a beautiful day," the cool ghoul commented noting the rain and fog. I am happy to hear he got over his medical issue and is able to move on being healthy. I am hoping this means he will be around for many more years to come.   

October News updates week 1

Well the brisk air has come and the leafs are falling. That means for sure that fall is here. Also October is official upon with horror movies all over TV and pumpkin spice everything. Last week, was mix of interesting news from both the horror host and horror community. 

This week in horror host new, Elvira is again in headlines. Last week we reported that a possible retirement could be happening but it looks like that is not true at all. She has been keeping herself super busy. As of last weekend she did another appearance on the Food Network as a guest judge for the Show "Halloween Wars." The show is an interesting competition that mixes sugar work, pumpkins, and cakes. Each week the teams has to make a piece to fit a certain horrific theme.

If you need more proof of her not slowing down anytime soon. You don't have to look any further than her doing a stage show at KNOTT'S Berry Farm again. The show is part of KNOTT'S Scary Farm attraction. The Attraction runs from September 22 - October 31. The Show she is performing in is entitled, "Elvira's Danse Macabre. "  The show consist of a Masquerade ball that she is hosting and you get to be her guest. The show is a triple threat with dancing, comedy, and music. The show happens twice an night at 9:00pm and 11:30pm. KNOTT'S Berry Farm also added a Boo-tique in Elvira's honor. The boo-tique will sell different Elvira merchandise. The plus is if you make a fifty dollar purchase in the boo-tique before ten, you get a chance to meet the Mistress of the Dark herself and get a sign autograph on one of your purchased items. I've seen some reviews of the show and it looks like it is fun time and a hit.

Promo Material for her at the attraction.

We go from one legend in the horror host community to another. Joe Bob Briggs a lovable cowboy that gives you some colorful commentary about his favorite movies. He may have been off the small screen since early 2000's but he is still remembered to this day. He was syndicated nationally just as Elvira and Mystery Science Theater 3.000 was. Just last week it was announced that one of the best horror shirt company Fright Rags was going to release some Joe Bob Briggs shirts, limited sign posters, and an enamel pin. Most of the shirts and posters was sold out in the first 30-minutes. If you would like to order one of the items you can be put on a reprint request. The shirts goes for $27.00 and may have a price variation with larger sizes. The signed posters are $30.00 and enamel pin is $12.00. Looks like in the two shirt styles there are still a small amount left in different sizes. Below is an image of the items and a link to the Fright Rags site for ordering.

Those are this weeks horror host news. Check back soon for more horror host news soon.

Now for some random horror news.

Last week, we reported about a feud that seemed to have risen between the original Halloween director John Carpenter and remake director Rob Zombie. A quick recap of the feud was that John felt disrespected and smeared by what Rob zombie has said about what his level of support was for him to take his own direction of the franchise. It seemed like it wasn't going to be a civil situation. But after we reported it here there was article released by that Rob and John talked it out and the feud was over. How this information was obtained was by a tweet that john wrote on September 27, 2016.  He simply wrote in the tweet that, "To everyone fascinated with the JC/RZ feud, old news. We spoke Sunday, we buried the hatchet. Let's move on."
It seems like it was situated calmly which is cool to see. Many of these celebrity feuds don't usually end like this. We will see what will happen now that John Carpenter is now going to be working on the next installment of the franchise. Not much information on it. But I am sure he will bring it back to the Micheal being a supernatural killing machine. That is nothing against Rob Zombie version. I did enjoy the realism of his film. Especially with the second one with all the stuff Lori was put through in the first movie that she would be really messed up in the second one. I am looking forward to see what both of them will be doing in their future projects.

The hatchet has been buried.

Purge: Election Year was just released this week on DVD.  I didn't see the latest installment but I did enjoy the other two especially the second one. I thought it was interesting that the first one was more closed off to the outside and how it effect a small neighborhood. Than in the second one it just hit on a large scale showing the purge encompassing the whole city. The Third one seems to ramp it up even more on a national level. It also talks more about the government behind the purge. Now it looks like the purge may be moving to the small screen. Many news sources has been reporting that Purge is in fact in the early stages of development.
James DeMonaco Writer/Director/creator of the Purge franchise sat down with CinemaBlend to talk about the release of Purge: Election Year and during the conversation he broke news about doing a TV show. In the interview, he stated, "The idea of why I like the idea of a maybe 10 hour TV on this, the one thing you really can't do on the film is, just because mere real estate and time, is you can't get into the nuance and complexity that would drive someone to commit terrible act on this night." I think this is an interesting concept and could go on for a couple of season with multiple different story lines possible. I would definitely check this out if they do. Be interesting to see what leads a person become a participant in the purge could it be for revenge, psychological issues, or just plain old fashion fun?

This last bit of horror news also started with a tweet. The tweet came from Don Mancini the writer and one of the directors in the Child's Play franchise. Last February, it was reported that Don was working on Child's Play seven and it would include Chucky's  number one women/ doll Tiffany ( Jenifer Tilly) . There was no update about the movie until recent on September 30. When he tweeted that he was story boarding scenes and posted a picture with the tweet. Which will be posted below. If he is hinting at story boarding does that mean he has a script already?  It has lead to more questions than answers. But it sure to hype fans and push excitment for the next film to be released. I am looking forward to see the next one. The Curse of Chucky the last one of the franchise was good and brought terror back to the character. I just hope they change Chucky back to his old look. I thought they were kind of off in the last one since they moved more away from practical effects and more of a CGI approach. Want more information check out the original article link below.

The Photo Attached to the tweet.

Check back next time for more horror news.

September News Update

A lot of interesting stuff is going on. some interesting news going on this week with in horror host and horror movie community. Some good and sadly some bad.

Let's start with the horror host news.

First of all there is some sad news one of the legends withing the horror host community was hospitalize. Zacherley was hospitalize last week for some unknown reason. Many were worried and hoping with baited breath he would be okay. At the end of last week we were able to gain an update through his webpage that stated he was having some digestive issues. He was quoted on saying about his hospitalization that "I went out for some seafood, and i think the Kraken I ate was a little under cooked." So it looks like this bad news ended with some good news.

Also in Zacherley news on Monday September 26th, he celebrated his 98th birthday. Which is a great landmark in someones life. It also wonderful to see him being active as his character all these years. Here on this blog I would like to thank him for all his years as his character and giving back to his fans at conventions and other appearances. And Happy Birthday to the cool ghoul.

An update it was stated on his website that the Zacherley is still good health wise and is recovering nicely. He was also thrill to hear that many groups helped celebrate his birthday this Monday and thanked them.

Happy Birthday cool ghoul
Some other exciting is that on the Mystery Science Theater 3,000 crew announced that they are currently in production of the new show. It is exciting to have seen the project start with the crowd funding and their finding of a new home on Netflix. It will be interesting to see the final product. Check back for more new information on this developing story.

Lets go on to some fun Elvira news. She had an interview at San Diego Comic Con this year, where she was talking about possibly hanging up the Elvira garb and moving on. But as she stated before. " I said I was going have my last comic con appearance in my 40's and 50's and now my 60's." She also stated that, " I do have to draw the line I'm turning 65 this September, I'm trying to keep it together. I'm not sure how many years I can keep this working out." She goes on to basically state that she hates to put an expiration date on women and there bodies but there will be a time that she just won't be able to pull off the costume as good as she use to. All the information above came from a LA Weekly article entitled, " Why This Might be Elivra's Last Comic Con (as Elvira). Which was written by Katie Buenekke on July 23, 2016. I will have a link to the article on the bottom of this write up. I am hoping she can do it as long as she wants. It seems like she enjoys the character as much as Zacherley does.

A photo from the interview with her new book. all rights goes to photographer.

As stated in the caption above under the photo. She will be coming out with a new book in October of 2016. The book will be filled with over 350 picture that never been seen before. It also contain original commentary from Cassandra Peterson (Elvira). It is a 240 page book and hardback. The retail price is $44.95 and you can also get a signed edition for $89.95. I think it will be interesting book to look at. So far it looks like you can only pre-order from her site. The link to pre-order will be below.
Elvira's book pre-order 

Final bit of news about Elvira is that she be immortalized in those fun Pop! Vinyl. Looks like the pricing varies where you buy it Amazon has it for $19.99 plus shipping and handling. I am sure this would be something food for any horror fan collection. 

In the next news update there will be some new Elvira news with some developing stories. 

And the final bit of news comes from the horror movie community. first bit of news is that Herschel Gordon Lewis the godfather of gore passed away on Monday 9/26/16. He made many movies that made us hide in fear and nausea from the gore. Some of the movies he made was Wizard of Gore, Two Thousand Maniacs!, Blood Feast and many more. R.I.P to the godfather of gore and hope his movie legacy will continue for centuries to come with his classics. 

Herschel Gordon Lewis in all his glory.

Lets end this News update on a fun little celebrity beef in the horror movie community between some big time directors over a classic film that they both made. The two directors are John Carpenter and Rob Zombie. It was announced that one of the original masterminds of Halloween would be coming back to the series that he started. And not much more has been heard about the project. But he will be taking the reigns of the series back from Rob Zombie. In a recent interview John Carpenter had a few select words about Rob Zombie. When Rob took over the series and rebooted it in a way giving it a more of a back story of Micheal Myers. Rob came to John for his blessing to make the movie and some advice for the film. In the article John states that, "Rob Zombie lied about me. He said that I was very cold to him when he me that he was going to make Halloween." John Carpenter also stated that, " Nothing could be further from the truth. I said, 'make it your own movie, man. This is yours now. Don't worry about me.' I was incredibly supportive. " I am not sure what is going to happen this interview was recently done by the student of New York Film Academy and written in a article entitled "John Carpenter Finally Comments on Rob Zombie's Halloween" by John Squires for I think this is an interesting situation and not sure if Rob will answer back to this comment. Will this situation become a Team John Carpenter vs. Team Rob Zombie. 

I am not sure I think both were interesting movies. I enjoyed the classic Halloween and what it did for the slasher genre. One of my favorite slasher films. The first one and second one was a great bookend movies to the first part of the series. And Rob's remastering of the series was interesting because it brought some realism to the series and brings Micheal back to his face of fear status. The only thing I didn't like his version was the back story of Micheal. I think it takes away from who Micheal is a mysterious killing machine. Either is good in its own way. The link to the main article will be linked below. How do you feel about this Situation.

The cool Ghoul Needs your support.

Today I recently received some disheartening news from a friend within the horror host community. It was told to me that Zacherley / Roland was recently hospitalize. Zacherley is a legend and a forefather within the community. He will be turning 98 next Monday. The community and this blog is asking that you send him some positive thoughts and prayers during this time to him and his family. This man is inspiration to many with in the community. I know he has become an inspiration to me. He had taken a character that was thrown in his lap and shaped it to the iconic status it is today. He still dresses in costume, sign autographs, and perform on stage. Which is amazing to see at his age. Here is hoping he has a speedy recover.Update he is doing much better as of September 26 and he was only having digestive issues.

MST3K has found its home.

As you now as of last year, Joel Hodgson the original series creator of Mystery Science Theater 3,000 has been working towards bring show back with a new cast and a new season. He started a Kickstarter program in November of last year to get 5.5 million in order to gain funding for twelve episodes. At the end of the campaign they were able to get close to 5 million dollars. They are currently selling different types of merchandises in order to gain the rest of the money. Everything seems to be in place with funding almost all there, new cast set, and writers. The only piece of the puzzle missing was where the show will be broadcasted. Would it be syndicated with a big television channel such as Comedy Central or SYFY as it was before?

The answer was recently reveled this pass weekend at San Diego Comic Con by Joel Hodgson that the new season of the show would be put on through Netflix. It seems like they decided to follow the trend that many other horror hosts has done by going through a streaming service. You will be able to get it in United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Now new yet on when the season will start but Netflix has already starting to put out promos for it. It was a short promo basically stating that the show was coming soon.  I am sure more news will be coming soon.

Currently for the merchandise sale for MST3K to get the final funding is currently just take is below:
