Viva La Mumblegore

I am so obsessed with this article about my favorite horror troupe (Wingard, Bowen, Swanberg, Seimetz, West, etc) and their journey to becoming well respected modern horror directors, writers, and actors. This is a must read for anyone who wants to save horror. 

Just the motivation I need to quit my job and devote 100% of my time to creating ridiculous horror stories. My first idea? A werewolf musical that exclusively parodies ABBA songs called ABBAPOCALYPSE.

“So when you fight me, darling please don’t bite me, S.O.S.!”

Mocca Chocalata Ya Ya

Creole Lady Marmalade is joining AHS “Freak Show” for four episodes! The legendary Ms. Patti LaBelle will play Gabourey Sibide’s mom in the fourth installment of Ryan Murphy’s nimble anthology series.

This horror diva is fanning with excitement!

The Green Inferno’s Delayed, Y’all.

So THIS is what Lana Del Rey meant by “Summertime Sadness.”  I’m looking forward to The Green Inferno whenever it’s finally released. Hemlock Grove is just not enough Eli Roth for me.

Guess I need to update my Outlook calendar with a big TBD.

 

The Purge: Anarchy

Bullet proof cars. Revenge. Wall street justice. Eighteen wheelers with giant machine guns. Government conspiracies. What else do you people want from a sequel?

I exited the movie theater after watching The Purge: Anarchy with one overarching thought: “This is a franchise.”

The sequel to The Purge delivered much of what I hoped for in its predecessor. Instead of focusing on one family’s struggle during the annual purge, I got to see a glimpse of what’s going down in the streets. And shit is going down in the streets. 

When I watch a horror flick I want to laugh, feel nervous, and lose myself in an alternate reality. The Purge: Anarchy was deeply satisfying.

Yes, there were moments when I wanted to strangle some of the characters for their stupidity. There were scenes with a little too much dialogue. And, of course, there is the obvious implication that no one in their right mind would be at work or out buying groceries two hours before commencement of the annual purge. But as I always say, this is horror. We forgive implausible situations because as horror fans we choose to accept the impossible.

I truly hope they keep cranking out more sequels because the concept is fresh and the possibilities are infinite. How would you purge? I’d be breaking all sorts of frivolous laws like cutting off mattress tags before they’re bought. Because I’m a rebel.

What’s the Worst Horror Movie Ever?

For me it’s Dark Water from 2005 but I think it’s because that movie punished me. I made my family come with me to see this and was relieved of my movie decision making duties for a good five years.

What do y’all think is the worst horror film of all time? Awesomely bad movies like Troll 2, etc don’t count!
