Hmmm F13th YARM anyone? Just go do your own borderline softcore porn S & M flick Rob, don’t frak around with the masterpieces of horror history people please…..

Update: SciFiWire’s Todd Gilchrist slaughters Zombie’s sequel in review…Halloween 2 review roundup…

Update: WOW! Todd Gilchrist’s review on SciFiWire is as brutal as Zombie’s gore splashed grunting kill scenes:

Comparing Halloween to Halloween II is a little bit like debating the comparative value of two bowel movements. Both are equally worthless, but the first was excruciating while the second just uncomfortable—although it’s unclear whether there’s an actual difference, or you were simply prepared for the pain after having gone through the experience once already.

That said, Halloween II is in fact better than its predecessor, which means that the series went from abominable to merely unwatchable, and which means that “fans” of the 2007 reboot may indeed enjoy it. But anyone uninitiated with Rob Zombie’s brand of grainy hillbilly brutality would be better served by eating a bran muffin and steering clear of this particular horror film, because it’s a compliment to call it a piece of crap…(go read the whole thing!)

This line from the review perfectly encapsulates what I find lacking in the GROSS factor horror today found in Saw, Hostel, and Zombie’s remakes of classic Carpenter:

…But it’s also a sure sign of desperation that the only moment in which the writer-director really references Carpenter’s films is in the final scene, when he uses the original’s familiar piano refrain to emphasize a character’s deteriorating sanity, and unfortunately, underscore the difference between jarring shock-exploitation and genuinely disturbing suspense: no matter how graphically one can depict a scene of violence, its impact will never compare to the lasting effect of an image, much less an entire film, in which a palpable mood is created and then successfully communicated to its audience….

These are spoiler free…

The reviews consistently dislike the Zombie take on Dr Loomis in H2….Zombie seems to deliberately make the audience dislike the characters…is this supposed to make us develop a sympathy for Michael b/c everyone else is so awful? dunno….

SDCC ’09: Zombieland Panel and Trailer…

Courtesy of ClevverMovies:

Put Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and a whole cast of nutcases in a movie about an amusement park jammed full of the walking dead and what do you have? No, not a dream I had after a meal of bad enchiladas, it’s Zombieland, a movie that proves that cities make weird names for people.

Columbus is the most terrified man on earth, and he’s made a history out of running from his problems. Tallahassee, meanwhile, prefers to beat his problems into bloody, quivering stumps. Put these two together in the midst of a zombie apocalypse and you’ve got a recipe for disaster…on the zombies. Check out the trailer.

So what’s your call, everybody? Romero goodness or cheap Fulci knockoff? We’ll get the chance to punch our ticket for Zombieland this October. Hit our comments section below and tell us your zombie survival secrets, and thanks for watching.

Zombieland Cast: Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, Amber Heard

Zombieland movie trailer provided by Columbia Pictures. Zombieland opens in US theaters on October 9th, 2009. Zombieland is directed by Ruben Fleischer.

More zombie fun with the Comic Con Panel after the break..

Update: Opening Day Box Office Stomps ‘Dark Knight’, new record; ‘New Moon’ breaks box office records for midnight run- $26.3 million; “Paranormal Activity” the most profitable film of all time, highest grossing R rated thriller in a decade…

Update: Heh. The ‘female-driven’ New Moon has knocked Batman’s dxck in the dirt. Vamps rool and caped crusaders drool this winter, lol:

Summit Entertainment’s “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” tore up the box office record for best opening day, grabbing the title away from Warner Bros. “The Dark Knight,” and earning a spectacular $72.7 million yesterday at 4,024 theaters.An exceptional feat for a film playing outside the summer frame.

There were an array of estimates being reported on the internet about how high the first day of “New Moon” actually was. This morning’s figure is Summit’s official Friday estimate.

“Dark Knight” had minted $67.2 million from 4,366 runs on July 18, 2008 before making a three-day opening weekend of $158.4 million.

Fueling the Friday B.O. for “New Moon” were midnight shows in 3,514 venues which drew in a record-breaking $26.3 million for the time slot.

The opening day for “New Moon” posted more than a 100% gain over the first Friday of “Twilight” which made $36 million a year ago and a three-day weekend of $69.6 million.

Hollywood better wake the hell up, another piece here focuses on the ‘female crowd’ and we know they are producing nothing original from interviews with Rob Zombie and the director of Trick R Treat also; Paranormal Activity made a mint and so will New Moon. Stop wasting money on Will Ferrell and other noted morons who want to criticize America and instead focus on producing things ‘females’ and their husbands, boyfriends, friends, sons, brothers, cousins may want to watch. How many times can you make American Pie? All Will Ferrell’s movies are the same. Go ahead hire a few women as studio execs and see what happens.  Shake it up, lol. CW is doing pretty damn fine.

For a franchise that has clearly targeted females, “New Moon’s” first day is so exceptional that it’s fair to say that the film most likely played beyond its core crowd to males. However, Summit plans to release the pic’s moviegoing demos in its three-day estimate report tomorrow. Ever since the first installment finished its play in theaters, the production of “New Moon” has garnered non-stop headlines on glossy covers and fansites with the media savoring details on the film as well as its cast members Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner….

Variety:

Summit Entertainment’s sequel “New Moon” has set box office history in breaking all records for midnight runs, grossing a whopping $26.3 million as it unspooled in 3,514 theaters at 12:01 a.m. Friday.That easily beats the $22.2 million collected by Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” this summer. Today, “New Moon” goes into a total of 4,024 runs domestically. For a female-driven property to draw such a turnout is also history-making.

Next record for “New Moon” to eclipse: Best opening day. Current record-holder is Warners’ “The Dark Knight,” which grossed $67.2 million from 4,366 runs on July, 18, 2008.

However the first day grosses for “New Moon” turn out, they will far exceed the $36 million earned by “Twilight” on its first Friday exactly a year ago…

MiM is also pleased to note “Paranormal Activity” is now the most profitable film of all time.

The hit $15,000 thriller PARANORMAL ACTIVITY has grown from its midnight-only showings in a handful of college towns to become this year’s biggest movie phenomenon, and will cross $100 million at the box office after only five weekends of national release as of Friday. In so doing, the movie has become the top grossing R-Rated thriller of the past decade.

…PARANORMAL ACTIVITY began its theatrical life with midnight-only screenings in 12 college towns across the U.S. and quickly developed into a national wide hit, with fans visiting the ParanormalMovie.com website and demanded the film be brought to their city. After more than 1 million such requests, Paramount expanded the film nationally where it has been playing to packed theaters ever since.”

What is truly amazing about PARANORMAL ACTIVITY is the depth of commitment from fans who demanded to see it,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brad Grey. “Adam Goodman, our head of production, believed in the film and championed it from the very first screening. This box-office milestone is also a testament to Oren Peli’s considerable talents as a filmmaker. All of us at Paramount are proud to have been involved with his revolutionary project.”…

Paranormal Activity $5,035,043 Weekly Box Office $104.7 TOTAL GROSS Millions

True Blood Season 3: Will Sookie discover Bill’s true motives for coming to Bon Temps?

sookieericbill

Ohhh I have been wondering about this! If Alan Ball wants to further the Eric/Sookie storyline, I hope he reveals what Charlaine Harris gave us in the books about Bill’s motivations for coming to Bon Temps! If he doesn’t, Sookie may come across as fickle, which is totally out of her character.

(I know a LOT of people who were pixxed that Starbuck married Anders the morning after her thing with Apollo, and that is thanks to RDM who edited out a key scene in which she talks to Tigh) In character driven, fan based shows it is never good to alienate your viewers from your protagonist (unless you’re Rob Zombie who seems to enjoy it)

EW has some answers, here is a highlight courtesy of SciFiWire:

Love it or hate it, the season finale of HBO’s True Blood took Sookie and Bill’s relationship to a new level.

But series creator Alan Ball may be taking a page from Charlaine Harris’ original Sookie Stackhouse books to throw a stake-sized wrench into their impending nuptials, according to Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello (spoilers ahead!):

Ball isn’t ruling out incorporating a major (and controversial) plot point from the books that, up to now, has only been hinted at in the series (spoiler alert):

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE NOVELS AND PLAN TO!

The franchise is dead. Long live the franchise!! Weinstein Co. to bring Halloween to 3D in 2010…

Halloween montage created by hitmanyr2kHQ

Well! I am SOOOOOOOO glad Rob Zombie did not manage to kill the franchise. It should NOT have to go out with the dreck that is the H2 remake as its last hurrah.

I have read in several places that the Weinstein Co. is having some financial issues. I think ‘Halloween’ may have the lure of the Kavorka! No seriously though I guess that is why they are turning to tried and true box office like Scream and Halloween. Whatever it takes to let the franchise recover from being ‘Zombied’, I am all for it!

SciFiWire:

Further establishing a trend for 3-D genre pictures of a kind not seen since the 1950s, Weinstein Co. co-Chairman Bob Weinstein has announced that the next movie in the rebooted Halloween franchise will be Halloween 3D, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Rob Zombie, the director of the recent Halloween and this past weekend’s strong opener Halloween II, is currently developing a second remake of The Blob and will not be attached.

Okay good news is Zombie is not involved, bad news is Zombie is going after another classic the Blob, Why? Why you do this to me Demme Zombie? The Devil’s Rejects, although not my kind of film, was clearly what he wants to do, so why keep reworking old horror/scifi and pixxing people off? Ahh maybe THAT is why, he LIKES to pixx people off and maybe doesnt get enough juice from the originals? Nah, more likely it is that dopey producers will not underwrite anything without it being YARM today….

Recall the Kevin Dillon The Blob YARM in the 80s? I mean when you are YARMING YARM you really are scraping the bottom of the barrel creatively aren’t you?
