Yep, "Pumpkin Potpurri", is the new "Odds N' Ends".
Wish I'd thought of it last year.
I swapped the order with "Based On A True Story", to save it for last, so I could save the surprise of a new thingy.
I'll swap it back next year.
I like to have True Stories last, cuz it pulls back the veil.
That's better for a wind-down.
Aaaanyhoo, I already casually had the link back to last year's version of this up top, so...let's just get going then!
This will be for stuff that doesn't go into a neat category.
Guillermo Del Toro returns to horror with "Crimson Peak".
Why didn't I put this in "Masters Of Horror"?
I fucking forgot, all right?
And speaking of....
H.P. Lovecraft's "The Colour Out of Space", is getting a re-re-REmake after previously being adapted into "Die, Monster Die!", and "The Curse".
Of those two, watch the former, not the latter.
And hope they really nail it this time.
And "X-Files", is coming back too.
There ya go, Hyla.
I wasn't a fan, but like "Twin Peaks", the rest of the planet was, so there ya go, rest of the planet.
You get "X-Files", and "Twin Peaks", can I have more "Deep Space Nine", and "Daria"?
Can we sign that deal, humanity?
Alright, so the oversights are corrected, now...
Vin Diesel's "The Last Witch Hunter", in a couple weeks.
This could be dumb fun, or MST3K fodder, so...fun either way.
"Scout's Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse".
This one hid under my radar until I saw the TV ad last night.
Where was this flick?
Looks like it's trying to have that "Evil Dead 2", "Shaun Of The Dead", feel to it.
Hope it's good.
I've been let down by a lot of zom-coms lately, so I'm hesitant.
I wish there had been a zombie outbreak when I was a scout, maybe I would have enjoyed my time with that organization instead of being creeped out and bored most of the time.
Then there's "Green Inferno".
I wasn't too impressed by this as it developed, because it looks like such a lock-stock-and-barrel ripoff of "Cannibal Holocaust", and I'm not too into Eli Roth's stuff anyway, but then I found out the twist that makes it different, is this time, the cannibals kill SJWs (Social Justice Warriors) and that ....that just might hook me.
Yeah, you've got my attention.
So, here's why I hate SJWs.
They're privileged over-fed upper-middle-class white people that tell you to "check your privilege".
They cry about tits in video games, and don't give a shit about female genital mutilation or honor killings.
They go to the U-fucking-N to cry about comment trolls telling them they suck, while a humanitarian crisis is going on in Syria.
Fuck these people.
Eat 'em, cannibals.
Eat 'em good.
Eat 'em aaaall up.
Eat the goddamned bones.
Turn every miserable molecule into poop.
Speaking of eating things that annoy you...
"Pride and Prejudice And Zombies".
You've got me at the title.
Apparently, the book is as popular as "The Zombie Survival Guide", and "Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter".
Let's hope the movie isn't as crap-ass as that last one.
If you don't know, Krampus is the evil counterpart to Santa from Germany.
If you're a bad child, he beats you with thorny vines and rusty chains.
He's even in Germany's Christmas parade.
Germany invented Santa and Christmas Trees, so fuck you, Krampus is canon.
And multiple filmmakers are playing catch up, and getting him into our public consciousness.
Kevin Smith is even taking a crack at it.
But, this one makes it out of the gate first, on December 4th.
Ah, if only Rankin/Bass were around, so they could do the puppet-toon version.
Anyhoo, this chunk of the list also counts as an update to "Twisted Christmas".
I know, Hyla, you hate getting Christmas on your Halloween, but this, like "Nightmare Before Christmas", should be an exception.
Shit, why wasn't "Nightmare Before Christmas", in "Twisted Christmas"?
Well, they're linked together now through this post.
Another oversight fixed.
"The Purge 3", Frank Grillo returns as Not-The-Punisher-But-Wink-Wink.
Sign me up.
"Resident Evil: The Final Chapter".
*Googles* oh my gawd, she's played this role for 14 years!
All right, Milla, pat on the back.
I might see it at the theater for shits and giggles.
What the hell.
"Underworld: Next Generation".
Also, an untitled part 6.
*Sigh* somebody give Kate Beckinsale an Oscar for something so she doesn't have to do these?
Damn, these have been around for 13 years.
Her and Milla really have been in a Coke vs Pepsi race with these.
Omigawd...it just occurred to me, Milla Jovovich and Kate Beckinsale are generation y's Schwarzenegger and Stallone!
Starring "Game Of Thrones"'s Nat Dormer, who you may know as Paladin's visual inspiration for Chokecherry.
Damn you, pun, you came out of nowhere!!
Anyway, call it "Chokecherry vs Japanese Forest Spooks", and enjoy.
"Cabin Fever", is getting a remake.
Yep, it came out in '02, it's time by the new standards.
Hell, by the new standards, it's WAY past time.
"Five Night At Freddy's", is being adapted into a movie.
"Night On Bald Mountain", from "Fantasia", is getting adapted into a whole movie.
UNGGHH!!! *jizzes in pants*
Ha! I had my special blammin' pants on in preparation!
My past self from the above link...
Wish the Disney company of today would have the balls to make a whole movie that dark.
Okay, Disney, with this, and how you've handled Marvel and Star Wars, the bad blood is mopped up.
I...I love you, Disney.
And, that's all of those.
Up next, in a crapload of days, Halloween.
I'll try to find something to put up between now and then though.
