The Thing Poster

Look at this beauty I got a hold off a couple of days ago:

The Thai poster for The Thing:

Isn't it beautiful? I love it. It will also get a good spot on my wall. Maybe next to my Thai poster of Antropophagus.

.. got a movie I've been wanting for a long time, and which can be hard to get. It pops up every now and then, but it always goes for such high prices. But not this time, got this baby for $20:

The Stabilizer!! With the one and only Peter ''Rambu'' O'Brian. It's also out on DVD through TROMA, but I've heard so much shit about that disc, so why not get the Greek Ex-rental tape? Takes up much more space and is gonna be very useless when we get MegaforceLaserbeam discs after Blu-ray is dead.

I also got this tape, which seems awesome:

Another Greek ex-rental. 19 Girls and a Sailor. Get your filthy minds of my blog! This ain't no porn movie! The plot seems fun:

''A group of 19 young women, led by a partizan man, are the only people available to escort a number of partisan wounded in the struggle for freedom, in the mountain ranges invaded by the Nazi army. The crossing of difficult tracks, and a few encounters with enemy patrols provide danger, and death for some heroines''

Cemetery Without Crosses screening at Cinemateket

Cemetery Without Crosses is screening at Cinemateket here in Norway. So if you live in Norway don't miss out on this! It will screen the 11th and 12th of November. Django will also be screened. Which is one of the best spaghetti westerns ever made! Django will be screened on the 14th and 16th of November. Be sure to show up.

Night of Death poster

Check out this Night of Death poster:

It's not the coolest poster ever, but it's one of the best movies ever, and it's hard to come by anything Night of Death related. But Synapse released the movie about a year ago, so if you haven't seen it, do it now!

The Troll Hunter (Trolljegeren)

I finally saw The Troll Hunter on friday. It was actually very good. And it's one of the first times I was proud of a Norwegian movie. You see, we suck at making movies. We are not original and we just copy everyone else. Especially in the horror genre. Some of our horror movies have had success in other countries, like Cold Prey and Dead Snow. But we are so far behind. We are sorta starting to develope what all other countries where doing 30-40 years ago. But The Troll Hunter was a breath of fresh air. It was funny and intense. Not everyone might understand the humuor, but it's fun. And you also get to see a bunch of beautiful Norwegian mountains and forests. Which I think Jack would like to see. Watch it. We need more folklore movies. Which I've been saying for the last 10 years.

Remember kids, I don't review movies. I just drunkenly rant about them. I'm gonna sleep it off now.

Happy Birthday Godzilla

Godzilla is 56 years old today. Congrats.

 If you want to know more about Godzilla and other creatures like him, check out this site:

The Good, The Bad, And Godzilla

Also, buy his book. It's amazing!

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead had it's premiere on Sunday. The first episode was amazing! Truly amazing! Characters where believeble, Make up FX where believeble, and the teleplay was fucking beatiful. That was the thing that amazed me the most, the teleplay. Good work Darabont!

If you haven't seen it, then do. I've read the comics, but you can still watch the show if you haven't read the comics. It stands out great on it's own.

After many beers and The Blob (1988), this is what a bearded movie aficionado thinks about:

I just finished watching The Blob (1988), and this made me think about practical effects, and todays CGI overload. Why the hell would movie makers want to use CGI, instead of Practical effects? It looks so much better. I can't rant about this without mentioning CGI blood. Now what the fuck is that? What happened to squibs? Are squibs extinct? Heh. Funny. They use CGI for every little detail that could have looked so much better with make up fx or practical effects. Is it that people have so high budgets these days that it's practical or do they actually think that it looks better? Maybe not; The prequel to The Thing actors, which has many Norwegian actors in it, stated that 15 of the 70 million used for production was used on practical effects. Which is a fucking good thing. So there is still hope out there in the horror world, and maybe this project will be good after all.

Even people like Rob Zombie, who is what I would call a ''fan director'' also uses CGI for many of the blood effects. In a horror world where practical effets and make up fx are dying, it's good to see that someone still wants to use it, and see the benefits of it, and how much better it looks. You can't beat practical effects.

Just a small rant.

Halloween movie time and drinking.

Well, I'm kinda back again. As most of my readers or followers remember, or not remember. Is that I stopped posting last Halloween. And know it seems I'm back again. I feel I can do this again.

I never celebrate Halloween. Well, I always watch horror movies. But I don't dress up or anything like that. I watch movies! And I always watch the horror movies I know that I love. So today I watched Return of the Living Dead Part 2. Which I love! I remember as a wee little boy I watched it every halloween on TV. NRK (a TV-channel here in Norway) used to show A Nightmare On Elm Street 2, Return of the Living Dead 2 and in later years they started showing newer stuff. Not to my liking of course. I remember this as a time of joy. So today me and my girlfriend made dinner and sat down and watched Return of the Living Dead Part 2 and had a great time. I had three beers while making dinner, so extra good time was had. A great horror comedy which I've seen a thousand times. Just a shame about the soundtrack.

So what are you watching this Halloween?

The Troll Hunter

Here is the trailer for the new Norwegian movie The Troll Hunter, with English subs:

The premiere was yesterday, but I haven't seen it yet. Will see it soon. Looks fucking amazing.

I love you Mondo Macabro

After learning that Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide has been slightly delayed, I'm glad to hear that Mondo Macabro is finally ready to release the Jess Franco movies Lorna, The Exorcist and Sinner: The Secret Diary of a Nymphomaniac. Wooooo!

Thank you. You are my favorite company.

Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide

The biggest documentary release this year or in a very long time is Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide. A 3 disc release, spanding over 9 hours with footage from the Video Nasties era. I can't wait. But today I got a mail from the manufacturer of this product that the release that has been changed to 8th of November - 2010.

 Prepare to be corrupted and depraved once more as Nucleus Films releases the definitive guide to the Video Nasties phenomenon - one of the most extraordinary and scandalous eras in the history of British film. For the first time ever on DVD, trailers to all 72 films that fell foul of the Director of Public Prosecutions are featured with specially filmed intros for each title in a lavish three-disc collector's edition box-set, alongside a brand new documentary - Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship And Videotape.

Disc One: Presents the 39 titles which were successfully prosecuted in UK courts and deemed liable to deprave and corrupt.

Disc Two: Presents the 33 titles that were initially banned, but then subsequently acquitted and removed from the DPP's list.

Disc Three: This era-defining documentary features interviews with filmmakers Ruggero Deodato ('Cannibal Holocaust') Neil Marshall ('The Descent', 'Doomsday'), Christopher Smith ('Severance', 'Black Death') and MP Graham Bright as well as rare archive footage featuring James Ferman (director of the BBFC 1975-1999) & Mary Whitehouse. Taking in the explosion of home video, the erosion of civil liberties, the introduction of draconian censorship measures, hysterical press campaigns and the birth of many careers born in blood and videotape, West's documentary also reflects on the influence this peculiar era still exerts on us today.

The Pirates of Dark Water

Hello fuckers. I was fucking happy today when I came home and found out that Pirates of Dark Water was finally out on DVD!! A show I grew up with and love so much! I've been waiting for years. BUY IT!! Only shitty thing is; it was released by Warner Archives. It's better then nothing, but these releases aren't the best and the only place you can order it is at and they only ship inside the US. FUCKERS! But that can probably be arranged. It's a complete 4 disc set. Can't wait!!

Ingmar Bergman Vs. Jaws

Now that sounds like a great movie! I just want to share this amazing picture with you guys. Just found it a few days ago. Never seen it. It's Ingmar Bergman checking out one of the three props used in JAWS. Nah, he's actually trying to get his dick sucked by it.

London Film Museum

My second trip to London was a few months ago. It was a nice trip. The best surprise was stumbling upon London Film Museum. They had some great props. A Ray Harryhausen section was under construction, much to my dissapointment, I find great inspiration in his work and has watched his stuff since I was a little drunk satanist in diapers here in Norway. It was opened on his birthday. Just missed it. But another trip to London doesn't sound bad.

Sorry for the poor quality pictures. The light was bad and everything looks shit with flash.

Don't feel I need to describe the pictures, since you probably know what's in them, or else what the fuck are you doing here?

Yeah, I've been gone awhile

So I just wanted to update with some of my great purchases over the past .. year? Fuck, it's been long. Sorry that I never stated anything here, but I talked to the ones that really cared.

I managed to get this baby:

Japanese VHS of Hong Kong horror The Devil (Xie Mo). The tape is English dubbed and letterboxed. This is awesome. But I also got something else, that I think is very rare. But I don't really know.

It's a sealed Italian VHS of The Beast in Heat:

If it's rare or not doesn't matter. I allready have the perfect DVD release. This is just a fun thing to have.

A kick in the nuts!

Yes, I'm back you fucking idiots! Drunker and angrier then ever!

I'm planning my trip to the Skywalker Ranch to kick George Lucas in the balls. The planned Blu-ray releases of the original and ONLY Star Wars trilogy (the new ones can burn in hell) is not turning out so good. You can just guess. IT WILL ONLY INCLUDE THE 1997 UPGRADED VERSIONS! Why the hell would you do this Lucas?

Perhaps bracing for the reactions of fans who decried some of the changes made to the special-edition films — like, say, an exchange of gunfire between Han Solo and a certain green-skinned bounty hunter — Mr. Lucas said that to release the original versions of these films on Blu-ray was “kind of an oxymoron, because the quality of the original is not very good.”

“You have to go through and do a whole restoration on it, and you have to do that digitally,” he added. “It’s a very, very expensive process to do it. So when we did the transfer to digital, we only transferred really the upgraded version.”

Thanks Lucas, thank you so fucking much. Seems you don't give a shit about the fans. Do you think that anyone likes the ''upgraded'' 1997 version?
