Flick Chicks Blogathon: Guilty Pleasure Movies

Thanks to Rambling Films I was able to see this fun little blogathon from the wonderful blog of Flick Chicks, and I am both glad to have discovered the blogathon and the sassy blog itself. So, as expected i will be listing 10 of my recent guilty pleasures from the horror genre. Enjoy!

Here are the rules...

1 - You can choose and discuss as many or as few movies as you like. We both did a Top 10, but you can just choose 1 movie if you like. Just tell us a bit about the movie and why you like it so much.

2 - Please create a new post for our Blogathon, rather than linking an old post you may have already done.

3 - Please include our Blogathon Banner anywhere in your post

4 - The deadline for entries is Sunday, 31st August, so there's plenty of time!

First 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Poster Shows The Circus of the Freaks

Did last year's Coven not do it for you? Well Freak Show has been making its way around the internet with several clips that prove that it might just be a freak show as promised, but nothing other than this poster has justified the title as much, as it is deliciously bonkers!

I don't know about you, but this is getting me pumped from AHS: Freak Show come October, and hopefully they learn from their mistakes and finally construct a decent script that doesn't fuck up everything that came before it.

1984-A-Thon Review - Horror Icons: Freddy vs. Jason, But Who Came Out Victorious?

Thanks to The Movie Waffler I stumbled across this fantastically fun blogathon hosted by Forgotten Films which dedicates itself to the film (or films) we loved back from 1984, and already 1984-A-Thon (love the title by the way) has been noticed over a wide range of blogs, to which I am not surprised.

So, instead of choosing a single horror and reviewing it, I then decided to put one horror icon against the other largely due to the fact they teamed up later in 2003, therefore I will be reviewing A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter; no bets as to which one is better eh?

Rumours Surrounding 'Halloween: The Next Chapter'.... Are They False?

Confirmed by Bloody Disgusting to then later be an article to say that their previous information was inaccurate, they confirmed whilst still sticking to their point that the upcoming Halloween entry previously known as Halloween 3D that has the Weinstein Company right behind it has now been changed to Halloween: The Next Chapter.

New 'Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead' Poster is Simplistically Fantastic!

Normally horror posters follow a general conventional layout; you know the kind that has its bloody victims sprawled over the front holding sharp weapons, most of the time with cleavage flasher than the title itself. This is not the case with this brilliantly sassy new poster for Dead Snow 2 (that surprisingly is in English thankfully).

It isn't exactly "inventive" or "new" at that, but it is so simple and so ingenious with a tagline that is fantastic witty. Honestly, there is nothing better than a poster that reads the film perfectly, and after reading the snazzy tagline i hope it gives you an insight into how deliriously funny and gory Red vs. Dead is; if this doesn't make you want to watch the film I don't know what will.

MTV's 'Scream' Series Gets its Cast!

Most of the core cast for MTV’s “Scream” series was announced a couple weeks ago.  Now they’ve announced four more actors, with one replacing the previously cast Amy Forsyth.

From THR:

Willa Fitzgerald will star as Emma Duvall, a classic beauty whose looks and popularity hide a natural shyness and intellectual nature. Her new life with the “in crowd” leaves her estranged from her childhood best friend, Audrey. Emma is the lead in MTV’s Scream take and bears a resemblance to Neve Campbell’s tortured high school student Sidney Prescott in the 1996 feature film.

Taylor-Klaus, who has been recurring on The CW’s Arrow as DC Comics character Sin and whose credits also include The Killing and House of Lies, will replace Forsyth in role of Audrey, the daughter of a Lutheran pastor. She’s described as an artsy loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.

Bobby Campo (The Final Destination) will recur as Seth Branson, a hot English teacher at Lakewood High who has an easy charm and is clearly one of the “cool” teachers, who can go with it if a lesson plan gets a little off-track.

Connor Weil (Sharknado) will be a series regular and portray Will Belmont, an all-American high school basketball player who adores his girlfriend, Emma (Fitzgerald).

Joel Gretsch (Witches of East End, V, The 4400) is set as Sheriff Clark Hudson, a good guy and good sheriff who is father to Kieran (Amadeus Serafini). David Arquette famously portrayed the lovable sheriff in Williamson’s features.

The Walking Dead - Reasons Why Daryl Dixon Should Be Gay

The Walking Dead is one of the top shows on television, bringing in a hell of a lot of viewers each and every week it on AMC (Fox for UK viewers). Both horror lovers and everyday watcher tune in to see zombies getting minced and blood being splattered, but alongside this is the fantastic characters that established the show for being more than just a "zombie show". It's the characters and the frequent unpredictability that grabs the punters every week, and no character does more so like Daryl Dixon, played by the bad-ass Norman Reedus.

This was all brought about from Robert Kirkman himself, in which he said "All I can say is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we’ll tackle it in the show.”

So, here are my reasons why Daryl Dixon being gay is right for The Walking Dead

New 'Texas Chainsaw' Confirmed; Not Following 3D, But Leatherface's Teenage Years...

That's right, you have not read that wrong; Millennium Films is moving ahead with a new Texas Chainsaw film that, instead of following 2013's Texas Chainsaw 3D is following Leatherface's teenage years. This of course means we have another prequel on our hands and that in fact a new Texas Chainsaw is well and surely on its way with Seth M. Sherwood pending the screenplay and a yet unknown director.

The Top 5 Horrors of 2014 So Far & 5 to Look Forward to


Honourable Mention - The Purge: Anarchy 
The Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to the 2013 box-office hit starring Ethan Hawke, not only outdone the first in nearly every aspect included in both entries, but proved that every horror sequel has the potential to do what the first failed to do; and in this case it was to explore the fantastic premise that the first failed to develop with more consistency. Anarchy is everything we wanted 2013's The Purge to be, and then some; laced with tension, filled with effective gore and fast to an extent of exhilarating. Proving to be both chilling and thrilling, Anarchy is not only one hell of a horror/thriller sequel, but it's also an electric cinematic experience to be admired by fans of the upcoming franchise and casual film-goers alike.

'[REC] 4: Apocalypse' Poster Brings Back Angela and She Looks Fierce!

The [REC] series thus far has been pretty impressive, branching out making both the zombie and found-footage sub-genres scary again. It would be no surprise to all if [REC] 4: Apocalypse continued the franchise with more gory delight, improving an already impressive horror franchise. This is hoping of course and that this installment doesn't buckle, as [REC] is one franchise we can all agree to root for.

Out of Spain, “Angela Vidal wakes up in a high-security quarantine facility, sole survivor and witness to the horrific events inside the building. But does she remember what happened to her? Is she carrying a virus? Distrust spreads through the isolated facility while new, even more deadly forms of evil spread even faster.

Check out the new poster below; due a Spanish release on 31st October 2014

Review - 'Kristy' is a Nerve-Shredding, Nail-Biting, Fight-For-Survival Thriller

When a college girl who is alone on campus over the Thanksgiving break is targeted by a group of outcasts, she must conquer her deepest fears to outwit them and fight back.

A trailer for Kristy was released a few months back, putting the under-the-radar horror-thriller out in the open for those who were interested to see, a trailer that was present straight from a German website. Then, following this a German poster was then released along with a German release date despite being an all-American thriller. This however has still been unresolved and Germany had got their hands firmly on Kristy, and by the looks of things the rest might have to wait to get to see this on the big screen, and that's if it even gets that far. However, Kristy is one film that is well worth its big-screen moment, and if I have ever seen a film that deserves the cinematic treatment, it's this gem of an experience.

Review - The Problem Here, is that 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' Tries Way Too Hard...

A freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites - and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.

Remember when we all first heard of this “Sharknado” that everyone had seemed to be raving about even though it appeared just like the rest of those ridiculous Syfy “so bad its good” movies even though they were so bad they were just…well, bad; and just when you thought you were getting another just like the rest, you were right, but Sharknado was more than that, it was hugely entertaining.

Review - ‘Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead’ is a Relentlessly Bizarre and Gleefully Brutal Horror-Comedy NOT for the Faint Hearted

Dead Snow (Død Snø) was placed on the map within the horror genre due to its eccentric premise that saw a standard group of campers attacked by a horde of Nazi zombies who had an extreme lust for tearing limb from limb and butchering civilians with rusted weapons as opposed to wanted to chomp on the brains of any living creature; Of course it was a zombie film so the odd organ-eating was inevitable. It was this approach exactly that separated this stupendous gore-fest from the rest, along with the vicious deaths that came in bucket-loads.
