I've been playing in the indie film game for many years. And a big problem I have always faced out here in Phoenix, is no one cares about a story. They just want to get big names to pop up in any piece of crap they write to help sell it. They shoot for getting a $500,000 budget, instead of thinking realistic and just using $10,000 and make a movie with a good story with unknowns. Well, Paranormal Activity proved my point, and proved with with some hurtin bombs.
Saw VI opened in around 3500+ theaters and made 14 million. Paranormal Activity, having already been seen by the majority of horror fans, expanded into just under 2000 theaters, and made 22 million over this weekend, bringing its total to 65 million dollars, and it only cost 11 grand to make. That is called success.
Take note Hollywood, please, for the love of Optimus. No more Saw, no more Rob Zombie movies, no more bullshit. Just let the people with true film talent do what they do, and ship people like Stephen Sommers and Brett Ratner to an island somewhere.
Not much else news to report on this, now I must sit and wait for the day that Netflix Watch It Now comes to the iPhone, then all will be right in the world. And if you are wondering what exactly the video below has to do with any of this, it has nothing at all to do with any of this news... I just happen to have that song stuck in my head currently.

The new kick out system is crap. I got hit about, twice, maybe, in the entire match, and after 2 pin attempts on me, I was done.
The new Royal Rumble system is boring and makes the Rumble the easiest thing in the game to win.
The game is the same ol same ol that we have seen previously. The computer is a reversing machine where damn near every move you do is reversed. I did a match against William Regal, I nailed him with chairs over, and over, busted him wide open, bleeding all over, every move I had set up was used, chairs, tables, everything I had to throw at him, I did, and then when he is holding his head, stumbling all over, bleeding everywhere, I go to throw my finisher on him, and suddenly he can reverse it and move around just fine. Does Regal have Hogan Powers now or something?
3 on 1 handicap match, me vs three computer players, I bust them all open, they end up winning by DQ, the match ends, they're in the ring celebrating, but have had a miracle happen, as all of them are no longer bleeding?
Same ol, same ol, Smackdown. Where the actual gameplay is idiotic and jumbled, but the storylines going on in the game are somewhat entertaining. Get it if you liked last years game and want new storylines to play through, other than that, nothing really new going on. Glad that I rented, and didn't buy.

I haven't played too much, and have yet to really dive deep into the online play of it, but like I said, this is just a first impression review. Mainly for those wondering if they should bother getting it or not. And the answer to that is simple. If you are a fan of the normal console versions, then you will be a fan of this as well. I find it to be just as fun as playing the console version, and it's nice not having to set up instruments and all kinds of madness to get going.
The game has the usual stuff, the world tour mode, the quick play, but what is pretty cool about it is the multiplayer options. If you have a couple friends near you, and you all have Rock Band and wanna rock out, simply sync up via bluetooth, and you're off and rockin. And the game also syncs up to your Facebook account, so if you have a friend on Facebook you wanna rock out with, it will push a message to them letting them know they have been challenged to a rock off.
My only gripe is the song choices, most of the songs are ones already in Rock Band 1 or 2. So for the games price of 9.99, I woulda liked to see some new songs in there. There are songs available for download through the music store in the game just like the console versions, but I think there shoulda been more than just 20 songs at the start.
So if you are a fan of Rock Band, and you got 10 bucks to blow, you will not be let down by this. Check out this video to get a good idea of what this game looks and sounds like.

The Queen of Halloween Nominee #3 - Danielle Harris
The Queen of Halloween Nominee #2 - Anna Paquin
This was tough, should she come out to be the winner? Or would she just be number 2. It was a tough decision to make, but I put her at number 2. Her work on True Blood has made her a true queen of the horror world. And her part in the new classic, Trick 'r Treat, has earned her this spot. Maybe, just maybe, she will become the Queen Of Halloween in the future, but for now, the title of The Queen of Halloween, belongs to......
THE QUEEN OF HALLOWEEN - CHRISTINA RICCI
From The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, to Casper, to Sleepy Hollow. Not only does her characters fit the meaning of Halloween, she also lives the gimmick. And to me, that is what makes her, The Queen, Of Halloween.
THE TOP 10 MOVIES TO WATCH DURING THE HALLOWEEN SEASON.
Yep, I will just do this top 10 list. 10 movies that are a MUST to watch during the final two weeks of October.
Yep, the friendly ghost. The Bill Pullman/Christina Ricci movie/ The movie that made me realize how important boobs would become in my life. Being serious though, this movie, like most adaptations, shoulda failed, and been cheesey as all hell, but this movie turned out to be, a really good movie.
9 The Addams Family
Probably the only TV show to movie adaptation to succeed in every way possible. Perfection. And another Ricci classic. Perfect movie to watch before Halloween hits.
You can't have Halloween without Norman.
7 The Monster Squad
The Goonies of Halloween.
6 The Lost Boys
Before there was crap like Twilight, this is what we had back in the day.
What is currently that staple of Halloween. The more movies that come into this series, the lamer it gets, but, the commercials don't lie, if it's Halloween, it must be Saw. I roll my eyes every time I see a trailer for Saw VI, and then the music hits, and I think, OOOOH MAN! IT'S SAW TIME!!!! One of the best horror themes in many years.
4 Monster House
I wrote this movie off for a long time until picking it up via a free movie rental at Hollywood Video last year and was quite surprised at how good it was. It is probably as close as we will get to seeing a Goosebumps movie.
3 Hocus Pocus
To me, Sarah Jessica Parker is insanely hot in this movie only. This is the Christmas Story of Halloween....
2. Trick 'r Treat
...until this came out FINALLY. This will be a Halloween night viewer for sure. Every year. A few years down the road, this better play for 24 straight hours on syfy or chiller or somewhere from Oct. 30th-31st.
But of course, as great as Trick 'r Treat is, it can not take out the legend. The classic. The ultimate movie to watch on Halloween night. It is tradition at our house, after all the trick or treaters are done knockin on the door, after dinner has been eaten, and after all is said and done, to settle on the couch, pop in the blu ray, and watch Halloween. The original of course. Not that Rob Zombie crap.

I have been confused about this for a long time, until just now, when I read what Jaime Foxx has to say about Roman Polanski....
“If it had been my daughter who was barely a teenager — my daughter is 15 — Roman Polanski would be missing … period."
Thank you Mr. Foxx. At least I know there is one sane celebrity out there.

I watched the movie again. Today I went directly over and picked up my nephew and brought him here, sat him down, and we watched this movie, first time for him, second viewing for me. It blew his mind, and for myself, I loved it just as much as the first time around, mainly because it allowed me to take a look at what else was going on in this movie. There was so much happening in this movie it is really hard to take it all in by just one viewing. I wish the thought, and heart, that was put into this movie, was put into every movie. The world would be a good Rise Of Cobraless place.
The main thing I noticed in the second viewing which made me jump for joy, was in a party scene in the movie, I heard a certain song being played in the background, hard to make out, but it was there, and I heard the words, "cry, little sister."
I love this movie.

Most from the days of DevonLohan.com may remember, but this was my 2nd most anticipated movie of 2007. And it never came out. 2008 came, and still nothing. But finally the day came, and I picked up a copy, watched it, and the results.....
Well, worth, the wait.
This is the PERFECT Halloween movie. I don't wanna get too much into it because it can be easily spoiled. But this is the best Halloween movie I have seen in many years. This really is what most people are calling it, which is the Christmas Story of Halloween. The movie that needs to be watched every year in October, and needs to be played for 24 hours straight on TNT, or Syfy, or Chiller, or somewhere!
Most may know that this is an anthology movie, much like Creepshow. But, unlike Creepshow, these stories in Trick R Treat all weave together in someway, much like Crash, or Pulp Fiction. And, in Creepshow, we had The Creeper, and in Trick R Treat, we have who I am declaring a new icon of horror, named simply... Sam. The reason for his name, is pretty cool and simple once you see the movie.
So, if you are seeking the perfect movie to watch at this time of year, and needing a breath of fresh air and a break from the 27th viewing of Hocus Pocus or Halloween, then watch this. Trust me. Watch it.
Number 5: Psycho 2
Rarely does a sequel to a classic film come along that, actually delivers. But not only does this sequel to the legendary Psycho deliver, but it still holds up today! And believe it or not, Psycho 3, and 4 also hold up quite well over the years. Which is why Norman, in my heart, holds a higher place over the likes of Jason Voorhees, and Chucky. Norman is the original. And the master.
Number 6: Daffy Duck Quackbusters
One of the great horror type cartoons. Daffy, Bugs, Porky and Sylvester start up a Ghostbustin agency and hijinks begin. I watched this all the time as a kid, and was very happy to see it hit DVD just a few weeks ago. I still quote it to this day, but very few actually know what they are. Mary had a little lamb... BUT I ATE IT.
Number 7: Rear Window
Like Psycho, this is a legendary movie in the thriller/horror world. I really mean this when I say it, but this is the only movie I have ever seen that literally put me on the edge of my seat. Well, bed in this case, I spent 3/4's of the movie laying in bed watching it, and the last part of the movie sitting on the edge of my bed, hands on my knees, shakin in my damn boots.
Number 8: Evil Dead 2
Good ol Evil Dead 2. The strangest sequel in the history of movies, mainly because, it's a remake of the first movie just with a bigger budget. What else is there to be said about this movie that hasn't already been said 1000 times on this site?
Number 9: The Haunted House Of Horrors
I don't even know if I should count it since I didn't make it all the way through, it came on late one night, I started watching it, when we were in the house it was kinda cool, but outside the house it was singing and all kinds of stupid crap going on.

Yeah, now seriously. How retarded and lonely do you have to be to pretend to be pissed off and screaming at kids on the internet just so you can get a bunch of comments making fun of you. Are you that desperate for comments that you would create this idiotic video just to get negative comments? Everyone knows that anyone making these types of videos are in for a world of shit talking in comments. So this douche bag decided that, the only way he could get attention was by getting negative attention and acting all pissed off and angry at the world.
Yeah, whatever dude. Here is an entire blog dedicated to you, is this enough attention for you? Do you feel better now?

Bad graphics, horrible acting, and the special effects are at their worst here. I guess since fellow writer Random Villain is on a horror movie binge for Halloween, this movie fits right in - although it's considered horror on SO many different levels. Check out the trailer below then decide if you want to watch the full movie.....if you dare! And for you die hards, you can also get the movie on DVD as it's featured on the Kissology Volume 2 DVD.

So, the 4th was a busy day for me, was worried I would not be able to squeeze a horror movie in, but, unluckily for me, I did.
I came home to find my wife about to watch a movie, she said nothing else was on, and she is a fan of Japanese horror movies, so she thought she would watch a remake since nothing else was on. It was called Shutter, starring Joshua Jackson, you know, Conway from Mighty Ducks.
What followed was probably one of the worst movies I have ever sat through in my entire life. Not at any point did anything exciting happen, this movie is about Conway and his new wife being haunted by, you guessed it, a long haired asian girl. Woooo scary. Anyways, that is about it, the only fun that was had during this movie was making fun of how stupid it was. Don't watch this movie, pass on it, I am ashamed I watched it. Bah.

I appreciate it for trying to bring back the 80s type slasher movies, but I also think my main problem going into this movie was I was fresh off of seeing Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon, which was one of the most original and entertaining slasher movies I had seen in many years. So Hatchet had quite the yard stick to go up against. Funny enough though, both movies feature Kane Hodder.
The premise is pretty simple, parents leave, big sister has a party, and Dorff and his friend accidentally open up the gate to hell in their own backyard, chaos ensues. But what surprises me is unlike most horror movies, none have really attempted to rip this one off, or remake it, yet. Which is nice, because this, to me at least, is a classic 80's horror movie that I remember watching all the time as a kid. It's one of those horror movies that feature kids, but what takes place in it is pretty scary and realistic. Kids acting and talking like kids should. Much like The Monster Squad.

See, after Halloween II, John Carpenter decided to continue producing Halloween themed films. Kinda like Tales From The Crypt, using the Halloween name and theme, but each movie be a whole new story. Well of course, Halloween III comes out, all hell breaks loose cause people go to see it and realize there is no Michael Myers in it other than on a TV, and well, you know what happened with Halloween 4.
But why bother mentioning Season Of The Witch then? Simple. It's a pretty kick ass movie. Take out half the title, and just think of it as a stand alone movie that is not part of the Halloween universe, and you'll see that by itself, it holds up as a creepy crazy sci fi horror movie about some dude that wants to kill every kid in the world by turning their heads into bugs snakes and shit by wearing these masks that will go off when kids watch a flashing TV and powers from a giant magic rock set it off..... ok yeah, sounds dumb, but shit, its fun.
So with that, I started my Halloween season off with Silver Shamrock. What was really awesome though, was I watched this movie last night, it came on HBO, right at Midnight. Right when the clock turned to October 1 2009. Perfect timing to kick off the Halloween season.
Now don't get me wrong, I am all for a third Kill Bill, but why get excited over something that is still 5 years away. And, on top of that..... he already announced this, back in 2004, after Volume 2 came out. So, why? Ah the hell with it. I don't even know why I am bothering to talk about it, probably to point out how other sites are weird in acting like this is huge news when it was already mentioned 5 years ago.
I don't care what the idiots all over the internet cry and whine about, Transformers 2 kicked MAJOR ass. It was much closer to the cartoons than the first movie was. The banter between Starscream and Megatron was all there. The action was great, it was an awesome movie. Deal with it. God damn people are stupid. Saying Revenge Of The Fallen was hard to follow and it was boring. Those are the same people that find boobs and vaginas yucky.
Anyways, Michael Bay had this to say today....
Transformers 3: July 1st, 2011
10/01/2009 09:41 AM
Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.

From October 1st, until HALLOWEEN, we will be watching 1 horror/halloween related movie or show a day. And writing about said movie.
