UPDATE: AHS, OUAT, GRIMM, and everything else.

American Horror Story is one of the most confusing shows ever. People who are dead, are coming back alive in every episode. My guess is that is that the yard is kind of like Pet Semetary. People who get murdered there, are buried in the yard. They then come back to life and haunt the place.

Did anyone check out Once Upon a Time? It's not scary at all, but the story line is decent. I was hoping for something a little bit more gore-like but I'll take it.

GRIMM premiered on television last Friday. It's another fairy tale story based on Grimm's stories but set in the real world. The acting is shit, but the story line could get better.


More updates to come.

American Horror Story Review

So FX premiered its AMERICAN HORROR STORY last night and I must say, I really liked it. Aside from a few "what the fuck?" moments, it had some awesome moments.

A family of 3 moves across the country to a haunted mansion-like house in Los Angeles. The house is haunted, go figure. I'm assuming the term AMERICAN HORROR STORY may have made you think about other things like: a Oprah Winfrey sex tape, Barack Obama re-election, or even another Tyler Perry movie involving Momma (or whatever the hell his movies are about) Nope. This was an all around horror/psychological/soft core porn edited show.

So my initial thought going into this show was, "How the hell are the creators of Glee, going to frighten me?" Sure, Brad Falchuk, and Ryan Murphy were the creators of the hit tv show Nip/Tuck, but still, could they be able to pull off a horror show. Watching AHS, reminded me a lot of other horror movies. The movie instantly has a feeling of the Shining, the Others, there was even a hint of "It" in there that's not even worth mentioning but I did anyway. The "It" scene was when the old lady and the mother were drinking tea at the table. I just keep thinking of that eerie scene in "It" where Bev goes back to her old house and the old lady invites her in blahh blah blah, you get it. The beginning of the show might confuse you, it still confuses me. The story started off too fast. I understand the husband got caught cheating and then the lady attacked him with the knife and the next thing you know they're driving to Los Angeles to a new home. It kind of felt like that whole scene where the guy was caught cheating was just a psychological problem with the lady and that the scene may have been an illusion or dream. I don't know.

What I liked:

What I liked about the show was the horror movie feeling it brought to the table. There were some instances where I actually was creeped out. The opening of the show really caught my attention. I love the creepy down syndrome girl (no down syndrome hate here) cause her 4-5 lines through out the movie made me laugh but also tweak. I don't know why, but it's the crazy mentally challenged little girls who also know their shit about haunted houses. Like she fore warned the ginger kids not to go in the haunted house but they did anyway! I liked psychological aspect of the show as well. I like how the husband sees the caretaker as an attractive young woman, but the wife sees her as old an unattractive. It kind of feeds off of what they both expect. The husbands been caught cheating before, so maybe it's what he wants to see. I don't know. I also liked the fucked up teenager kid who's like semi human and semi creature. He was the one who scared that girl in the basement with the lights all flickering. The half burnt face man was a fast runner. I have a feeling we're not done seeing him yet. He seems like one of those characters who will come back and try to help out the family. His character is pretty wicked and morbid as well. I'm still trying to get a feel for the house itself. It seems like we'll learn more about it in future episodes along with the daughter who really has no purpose thus far other than being a bitch, and cutting herself. She appears at the most random times.

What I didn't like:

There were quite a few "what the fuck" moments for sure. First off, why did we have to see a guy masturbate in his room. I don't object to the maid though haha. Also, who the fuck whacks it while standing in front of a window while the creepy burnt face man watches from the laundry area of the backyard? That scene just came out of no where. As mentioned before, the show kind of started off really fast. Like it went from haunted houses, to a lady catching her husband cheating, and then they're moving. I doubt it would have made sense to slow it down a bit because if he cheated, the only thing the show would do is show scenes of their lives while dealing with the incident and that would be boring. I probably wouldn't want to continue watching the show if that happened. I don't know how I feel about the man in the black leather suit either. I see the posters for the show and it shows the pregnant mom and the man in the black leather that may or may not be the husband. All I'm saying is that this show better not stretch out into the completely weird zone. Like I don't want it to go from horror to the show Lost. I love Lost, but this is horror, not science fiction.

This show has potential. We've seen some awesome things from the first episode and I'm sure that there's more to come. These Gleetard writers have surely surprised me with the pilot. When I talked about the influence of other past horror stories and then it hit me. The title of the show explains it all. As long as the show doesn't end with a giant spider, it'll be good.

Where I've been

Well I can't say that I've been completely focused on what I love to do. The past Summer was truly a stressful time for me. Between my mother being sick, grandfather being sick (in which I volunteered to be a caretaker for), trying to graduate college, and just dealing with my diet. I also started doing stand up comedy again and have been doing some shows here and there. I have not gotten the time to watch movies, shows, read books, comics, or anything that I enjoyed doing. But let's face it, it's October and I will definitely have a lot on my plate this month. I am re-reading Dr. Austin's book. I don't know if he reads my blog but I owe that man a book review before he writes another text book haha. I also have a review on FX's American Horror Story episode 1 today (I don't professionally review them of course, I just complain or make fun). I do intend on setting up a horror movie weekend review with my friends every Saturday. I have some creepy pictures that I want to post to the site that I've been taking with my camera. Also, for anyone that is interested, I'll be reviewing the new Weird NJ magazine. I've also thought about reading the Weird series of books like: Weird NJ 1 and 2, Weird Pennsylvania, Weird Ohio, Weird NY etc...

I want to apologize to every single person who reads this blog. Even if it's 4 people, I'm sorry. Things happen and sometimes we don't have full control over it. Never dwell on the negative though. I'm here, I'm writing, and that's all that matters.

Astral Projections are INSIDIOUS


Yeah I bought the movie on Blu Ray because any movie that claims to be the scariest movie since the Exorcist is making quite a bold statement. Basically what they're saying is that it's been 38 years since anyone has shit their pants while watching a horror flick and I totally disagree.

Wait, do I disagree?

So the film starts off rather slow. I mean I wasn't screaming or crying in the first 5 minutes of the movie, so that fucking movie was slow.

just kidding.


I was easily convinced by one commercial that I wanted to see this movie. Friends had compared it to other films like the Omen, Amityville, Big... just kidding. Not BIG haha. I had liked the Amityville remake a lot and disliked the 5 hour long old version of the movie. This movie ran 97 minutes I believe but felt a bit longer than that.

Upon the opening 10 minutes I kind of had an idea of where this movie was going. Guessing from the cover, the kid was some kind of demon retard with an obsession for Cocoa Puffs. I was dead wrong actually. Long story short, the kid is an astral projector (which is different from nocturnal emissions). This means he leaves his body while he sleeps. The child named Dalton goes a bit too far when he astral projects and enters a dark realm where evil spirits try to possess his body. Since astral projection and outer body experiences are documented by Wikipedia as a real thing, I thought this was a cool concept for a movie.

This movie had its ups and downs. I personally thought there were enough creative ideas that could have turned this movie into something really scary. It seemed like writer and James Wan focused more on the jump scenes than the actual material revolving around the story line.

The make up and design of the dead and creature like people were awesome. The main evil hooved guy kind of reminded me of Darth Maul from the Star Wars movies. I liked the old lady who was apart of Dalton's fathers childhood. You'll see more. The design of everything was perfect.

I don't feel as if the scenes flowed well together. In the beginning it seemed like things just jumped to quickly. When Dalton goes to the hospital I think they said it's been a week since he was in a coma. I think they should have added some haunted scenarios during that week while he was away. I don't know, just my opinion.

I think the music and sounds were awesome in this movie. The music on the record player where the lady sings about tulips and the little boy dancing inside the house really creeped me out. It's on Youtube, it's quite funny and eerie.

The ending was pretty cool. The psychic lady definitely went ape shit on Dalton's father.

So should you see this movie? I don't know what to think of it. It's still running through my mind. I haven't really given a horror movie a chance in a while and this movie was pretty decent. It wasn't perfect. I made a lot of funny comments during the movie cause there were just things you couldn't help but laugh at. Definitely give it a shot.

I'm an idiot. You knew this. How's life?

Excuse my last post that I deleted because I thought it was the new Amity movie trailer, but it was just a bunch of clips put together and taped from a camera phone. This camera phone made it looking like it was being taped from a movie theater. The footage was actually part of the Haunting in Connecticut movie (which I never ever ever ever gave two shits about seeing) and yeah...

I fell for a fucking Youtube video...

I'll carry on.

So I've been busy still. I've been helping my mother take care of my Grandfather who's been in and out of the hospital. Between that, school, doctors, dieting, friends, life, I haven't been able to catch up on this site. I haven't watched any horror movies, played any games or even caught up on any kind of horror news. I did however purchase the recent SciFi Now magazine to read about the upcoming Season 2 of the Walking Dead. I'm kind of excited for it but at the same time as a fan of the comics it just seems like the storyline of that show is going to go by so slow.

but I'm patient.

Currently did read Vol. 14 of the Walking Dead last night and I must say I'm quite shocked but happy. It's a slow moving volume but it's action packed by far.


So I had a comment on the post from April by a man named Doctor Austin. He is sending me a book to do a review on and I can't wait. My lack of attendance on this is terrible and I didn't see Doctor Austins comment until today which was posted 2 months ago.

So I went out and bought $3600 of filming equipment this past week. Decided that if I'm not going to film school then I'm going to school myself with filming equipment... does that make sense? I wanted to do something with film, writing, and I know I have the ability to do on my own without any kind of restraints. I bought a Canon Rebel T3i/600D SLR camera. I had gotten a student discount on Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium that has Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects and a bunch of other Adobe programs. Then I bought a Macbook pro for strictly editing, and whatever else that's filming related. I still have to warm up and learn how to use all the Adobe programs the right way and then I'll be on my way to making independent movies, skits, band promos, etc... I do plan on making a zombie movie. That's going to be down the road some time and it's more of a reality now than it's ever been thanks to the quality of equipment I have and Adobe After Effects which can really spiffy up my films.

Also, I'm going to be adding photos in this blog of creepy things I find on the way to places in New Jersey. I know on the way to Atlantic City there are a lot of old creepy haunted looking places when we drive through town. Absecon, NJ alone is full of old watch port houses from the early 1900's. It's creepy but cool. I'll be going to random Weird NJ places as well. For those of you who don't know what Weird NJ is, it's a magazine that's put out every October and May that consists of any and everything weird in NJ. Whether it be haunted, UFO's, weird people, weird habits, etc... it's all there. The guys Mark and Mark had/have a show called Weird Travels where they do the same exact thing they do in NJ but all over the United States.

Expect videos and awesome pics soon!

The Crow ReMaKe

Read this article about The Crow remake with Bradley Cooper first.

I don't know how I feel about a Crow remake. The original Crow is almost like a masterpiece in it's own way. I was a fan of City of Angels as well because I loved the first one so much and I love the Deftones (the band playing the concert in the movie). This is a remake that I wouldn't mind being remade as long as it's done right. As far as Bradley Cooper goes, it's 50/50. I always remember him as the douche bag in The Wedding Crashers. I wasn't a fan of the Hangover at all. I haven't seen anything else with him in it.

As far as it being done right I'd like to see a dark city like the Crow had. I of course don't want any insane graphics or CGI done to the movie cause that would definitely ruin it. I mean the imagery is going to be a lot better than the 90's film, but don't make it computer animated. AND ABSOLUTELY NO 3D!!!!!!!

Bradley Cooper would not be my number one choice, I haven't really thought about that yet. He just doesn't have the dark hair, the dark attitude, or any kind of characteristic that Brandon Lee had. Obviously they'll fix his looks, and he can work on the character. As I sit here and think about actors who could or could have been a good Eric Draven, I think Heath Ledger could have made for a good Eric Draven. Hmm, who else... Maybe the dude who played Prince Caspian on the Narnia movies? I think his name is Ben something. I don't know! If Bradley Cooper is the man, then I hope he does it RIGHT!

Another key element that made the Crow experience whole was the soundtrack. The first two movies had awesome soundtracks to them. The Crow had Pantera, Rage Against the Machine, Rollins Band, The Cure, and others. City of Angels had the better soundtrack with Hole and their version of Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman". They had the Deftones, White Zombie, Filter, Korn, Toadies, Iggy Pop and so many more artists.

Just another case in the world of remakes that didn't really need to be done.

I'm well aware I talk WAY too much about movie remakes haha.

The Horror Movie Industry is DEAD!!!

Just a year over this blog and now at the 50th postiversity...anniversablog...

...well it's the 50th post... so pop a bottle of champagne for this uneventful event and listen to me rant about today's Best Buy trip.

The horror movie industry is dead. Why do I say this? En route to Best Buy today, I had such a craving for horror movies that I decided that I was going to pick up some cheap horror flicks and fulfill my craving with some awesomeness. Good or bad, I just needed some horror. Now Best Buy recently has been going through some movie changes. With blu ray movies becoming cheaper and more affordable, Best Buy felt they needed to cater to the blu ray craze. With more aisles of blu ray movies that are not categorized by genre, only alphabetically, the dvd aisles are lessening each year. Don't get me wrong, I have about 75 blu ray myself, but there are not many horror movies released on blu ray. As I entered the horror section (which used to have it's own aisle and a half) I came to a section that was 1/4 of the whole aisle. It was labeled horror. I thought to myself, "Has Best Buy given up on today's horror movie collection?". I was kind of annoyed that the horror DVD section had been smaller than the anime and the WWE wrestling section. I was just in shock. Again I found the JAWS movies in Action. That's just a long time battle that I'm never going to win.

So what happened? Is America losing hope in horror? If you ask me, I think people are so gung ho on all of these shit hole comedy movies like The Hangover and any 20 million other Seth Rogen and Zack Galifigienoogoo guy in. Not to mentioned the Katherine Heigl movie infestation seen here.

It's just funny how all these comedies and romantic movies are all becoming the staple of the film industry. They're just repeating movie plots and adding mini twists and actors and actresses. It seems like the only thing horror movies are doing today are re-makes of old movies or re-makes of asian horror movies. There's nothing to show for the industry. Much respect to these b class horror producers that are trying to make a name for themselves. I have a lot of respect for the Monsters of Horror, and Horrorfest people and all of those horror film makers. No ones getting recognition and it's a fucking shame.

side note: if anyone has ever gone to Tom Savini's make up school, message me somehow!

As I looked through the collection of horror movies they were all over priced, and the selection was just terrible. There was an overstock of the movie DEVIL by M Night Shia Labeof haha. They had too many The Strangers DVD's as well. Oh and too many Piranha films. I found a $13 4 movie collection of Critters 1, 2, 3, and 4 that I bought, other than that, the movies were bad. I remember going there just last year and seeing all kinds of Evil Dead the book of the dead cases. I remember seeing all kinds of cool box sets for Hellraiser, the Return of the Living Dead series. I remember the Freddy and Jason boxed sets. All of this DVD goodness is just lost in some Best Buy factory now. Amazon.com is probably the best place to find cheap and rare horror DVD's and blu ray's. I made a wish list of all of the horror movies that I still need to add to my collection. I'm afraid if I add any DVD's that they'll be on blu ray sooner than later.


Jurrassic Park
From Dusk Til Dawn (May 3rd, 2011)
Legend(non-horror May 31st, 2011)
Ghostbusters 2

and every other 80's classic horror movie.

Well that's it for now. I'm becoming part of the Youtube community and starting up a movie, music, blu ray, dvd, video game, media, awesomeness channel. I doubt anyone will watch, but I get bored just writing sometimes.

Almost a month later...

I'm starting to suck at posting shit. Right now I should be doing my homework but I've found other useful things to talk about.

Fact or Faked

So I've been watching this show on the Scifi channel... oops I mean SyFy channel. I remember seeing this show a while back possibly. I remember something about them trying to find Bigfoot and then trying to recreate footage that was taken a decade back. Most of the episodes I have seen include the group of people debunking these things with little experiments. Retarded experiments might I had.

The Bigfoot footage was debunked by simply dressing one of the crew members in a gorilla suit and letting him run the same route as bigfoot did in the footage. Same place, same path. The runner ran as fast as bigfoot did. This debunked the Bigfoot case. That's it? Really? I don't believe in Bigfoot myself but c'mon, how does that prove anything? Cause you run as fast as Bigfoot means that it was fake?

Then there's this video of a black looking witch type figure flying over hills in Mexico. They tried zip lines, jet packs, string on a bag of balloons and finally they took the motor from a flying toy helicopter and attached the string to the balloons and that is how they debunked the figure. Some random resident lady knew how to take apart a toy helicopter and create the same thing they did? Stupid! I don't believe the tape was real, but again these idiots think they're debunking something when they're not.

I love how the one episode the guy swears he seen an alien rip his dogs face apart in the woods where he was hunting. He then staged a tape of where he beat the fake alien in the back of the head and made it bleed. He made another video tape of bringing the alien back to his home and I guess gave it an autopsy while it was still alive. They debunked this by recreating the alien and it's ship out of hollywood items (cause you and I both know that kind of stuff is available all over the world for every day people to buy). Again, I don't believe in aliens but the way they debunked this is by using some type of voice radar machine that tells if people are lying or not. Obviously it was something created from the show to prove these things wrong.

Anyone ever hear of CGI? or video editing equipment? Regardless I still watch the show to see some of the ridiculous things they come up with.


So one of these days I'm gonna get to kill some zombies with the dudes from "You've Got Dead on You". If you're reading this then I'm sure you know who those guys are and you love love love love love love them! I do, but they'd probably hate me if I told them I'm about 10-11 episodes behind them. I can't find my iPod which means I haven't been able to listen to them during my daily routines. No excuses! It's just hard to carry around a laptop and do something else at the same time! Recently they've been posting Youtube videos of Left 4 Dead sessions. You can go here http://www.youtube.com/LockeLackey
and watch all of Jason Hall's video game awesomeness! Check out Jay and Craigs Left 4 Dead sessions first though. Hopefully my Left 4 Dead session will be taped so I can show how truly unreliable I am at keeping my team safe!

Where have I been?

With my lack of site updates and all I feel really bad. I've been on a diet, been seeing a nutritionist, surgeon, and a personal trainer. I've been busy with school, helping my mom out, and all other things. I've just been a busy person. I've been currently beating older Resident Evil games for the PS2 (RE:4, Outbreak, Code Veronica). I've been reading this NIGHT of the LIVING DEAD graphic novel and it's pretty awesome. I've been on a old school wrestling tirade and it's just never ending! But I will be back with more to offer I promise!

Paranormal Activity 2 Review... FINALLY!!!


Seriously? This movie was more annoying than Gilbert Gottfried singing the National Anthem in Spanish while running around in circles.

The highlight of this movie was the basic mediocre parts of the first film. If I wanted to watch a bunch of people's lives through security cameras I'd become a security guard at A & P. Every time they would show the cameras in the hours of "Dead Time" nothing happened for the first 30 days. Soo fucking lame. I hated it. It made the first movie go from okay to awesome. I do like the connection between the two. I thought that was quite clever. Other than that I didn't like it. Slow moving, typical sound scaring, retarded horror movie.

The parts that were cool was when the dog gets dragged into the room haha. I thought that was funny. The kitchen scene where every thing opens up at once was cool too.

Every time they showed the sidewalk security camera I hoped something cool would happen. Maybe like a munchkin from the Lollipop Guild would go skipping through or something.

What was the fathers deal in the movie? He just didn't believe everything. He blamed everything on the fucking wind right?

Daughter: Dad the door shut by itself
Dad: It was the wind!

Daughter: Dad the pans fell from the ceiling.
Dad: It was the wind!

Daughter: The baby just slid out of his crib by an unseeable force and dragged down the stairs to the basement with no logical explanation.
Dad: It was the wind!

Lastly, the hot chick with the big boobs from the first one somehow walked all the way to their house, in her underwear and tank top, with blood on her shirt, and no one noticed this. That is so awesome.

This movie sucks. They're coming out with a 3rd now. That one's probably going to fucking blow too. Don't waste your time.

Resident Evil AFTERLIFE

So this movie sucked. Didn't expect much from it. I just needed something to watch while I ate my chicken stir fry and won ton soup.

I thought the first movie sucked.

The second movie was cool I think.

Then the 3rd movie wasn't terrible... but it kind of blew.

Then there's this movie. I just hate how they tried to mix in the Matrix with a zombie movie. Assholes.

I hated the Matrix btw.

It seems like they make Milla Jovavich's character completely unstoppable. She always defies odds, and manages to escape EVERYTHING. So annoying.

Didn't watch Piranha yet.
Didn't watch Paranormal Activity 2 yet.

I have been super busy.

The Rite, right? Am I right? Rite... Right.. well the movie looks good!

The Rite!

That movie actually looks pretty damn good. I keep seeing previews for it and I think for the first time in a VERY long time I'm going to see a movie in theaters. The last movie I went to see at a movie theater was Zombieland. So yeah, it's been quite a while.

Judging by the previews they director/writer/producer/whoever, is trying to capture the aura of the Exorcist. I'm pretty sure if you've seen the trailer then you've already gathered that. It also kind of reminds me of the movie Stigmata, which I absolutely loved but still gets to me.

The movie is based on true events. It's based on the book The Making of a Modern Exorcist by Matt Baglio (thank you Wikipedia).

I like movies that deal with things like demons, and exorcisms. I guess it's the reality of the movie is what keeps me interested. Anthony Hopkins as we all know is a phenomenal actor (you'd know this if you've seen any movies with Hannibal Lector). It should be a good movie, I'm hoping to catch it Monday or Tuesday night when I have time.

Don't know if I mentioned this but I picked up The Last Exorcism but haven't watched it yet. I also just picked up the Piranha blu ray cause I'm an idiot. I've been wanting to see the Village as well. I just haven't had time to do anything lately. January has been a busy month for me so far. So much going on and I know my very few readers probably think I quit doing the blog. I'm currently starting up a Youtube page and doing review videos (cause we all know how original that is). I would review movies, comics, music, and video games. Another thing on my to do list.
I know I said I was going to post a million other things but I just haven't gotten to them. If it's important I'll post it haha.

New blogs in the coming days, I promise.

Shock and Fucking Terror

I'm about to waste more of your time.

I'm writing yet ANOTHER movie script. This genre is horror. My plan is to finish more than 3 pages with this. It would be a personal record of mine actually. I'm tired not finishing projects. I don't know what it's gonna be about, but I know there won't be vampires in it. There probably won't even be zombies in it. I want to take 5 categories of horror films that I love and mash them up all into one. Of course I'll make my own plot and story, I just want to use some kind of substance from them. I'm hoping someone would read it when I'm half way done and give me some tips. This time I'm going to brainstorm this out for at least 2 months before I even lay a finger the keyboard and start my rough draft.

The movies that will inspire my writing... hmm.

1. Stigmata/The Exorcism of Emily Rose/The Exorcist: Exorcism movies are awesome. It's something that has actually happened in the world. Whether people believe in this or not, it's documented by the Vatican. The realism of exorcisms have always creeped me out since I was young. From the movies I mentioned, to watching episodes of exorcisms on Unsolved Mysteries, all of this must be incorporated.

2. IT/Killer Klowns From Outer Space: Fucking clowns! These things are fucking evil! I don't care if they give you balloons and want to be your friend! They are the devil. It was always a great movie to the very ending with the stupid spider thing. Killer Klowns is a classic and they always freaked me out. I'm not including anything clowns from space, just clowns in general. Another thing from my child hood I hated. I remember when family members had clowns at my cousins birthday parties, it was never a happy time for me. Instead I spent my time plotting an strategy incase the clown turns on us and tries to kill everyone. Wiffle ball bats, plastic forks and knifes, and a basketball were my weapons of choice then. I remember seeing clowns at Six Flags Great Adventure's Fright Fest. I hated those shits. So it's important to add clowns.

3. Friday the 13th/Nightmare on Elm Street/Halloween: Of course these have to play a part. They are the core of horror movies. Whenever you walk alone in the dark and hear any kind of noise, you immediately think it's one of these 3 guys. No matter how fast you run, no matter how far you run, these guys travel fast. Freddy is already implanted in your dreams so you better be drinking caffeine while you're running.

4. Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2/Army of Darkness/My Name is Bruce/Zombieland: In my script I'm going to need that one so called hero. Now Ash wasn't a hero until Army of Darkness if you ask me, but he was the bad ass good guy. I'd like to have someone with the same attitude and awesomeness as Ash without the character being Ash. I don't want this script/movie to have some kind of teenage emo looking kid who waves his fucking wand and eliminates the demon. I want this to be a bad ass character kind of like Tallahassee in Zombieland. A ruthless, dirty mouth, ass kicking mother fucker... There will also be a group of some kind of ass kicking bandits along with this character.

5. JAWS/JAWS 2: I don't really know how to place Jaws in the mix. Jaws just scared me as a kid. The shock and terror that it brought to millions of people is well worth the addiction.

So we have the realistic movie with the exorcism and such. We have evil clowns. There's the mass murderers of the 80's, 90's, 2000's, and today (in which is the fear that the terror is always right behind you). We have the bad ass potential hero and the one who will fight the terror and evil clowns (if I choose to use clowns). And then there's the shock and terror like Jaws gave. Some thing new and dangerous.

Ok, I'm gonna be honest here. I suck at writing things. This is something I'm truly going to give my all. Something I will not hurry up with for the simple fact that I want it to be perfect. The more time spent on it, the better it can become.

As far as zombie movies? I'm not even going to try to step in Master Romero's shoes.

Mean Gein

One of the craziest bastards I've ever read about is a man by the name of Ed Gein. If you've seen movies like, "Silence of the Lambs", "Psycho", and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" then you'd have an idea of where I might be going with this.

Ed Gein, also know as the, "Butcher of Plainfield" was one the worlds most sickest, demented, calm, fucked up murderers ever. In the book, "Deviant" by Harold Scheckter he tells about the early life of Gein and his family. Ed Gein had this droop over his one eye in which kids made fun of him for it. His mother was a strong Christian woman who was pretty much the blood flow of their family. The father was a lazy POS and he did have a brother but I don't remember much about him.

Gein's mother never let him hangout with girls or have friends so he was really sheltered. His only source of entertainment and fun was reading comic books. These comic books were full of Native American and Nazi's and cannibalism. Of course this is something that sparked Ed Gein's sick future but I also think the mother had a lot to do with that as well.

Gein was obsessed with collecting female body parts. He would collect vaginas, lips, scalps, and he would salt them to preserve them. He Killed larger women and he dug his mothers grave and brought her back to his house and stored her in her original room that was sealed shut and kept clean like the way she had it. This was apparently Gein's plan all along.

Gein also killed his brother. It's not a definite thing but it was something that pointed in his direction even though no one prosecuted him for it. I know that he set these woods on fire and guided his brother through them. When the police came Gein led them right to where his brother died. That kind of made the cops a little suspicious that Ed couldn't find his brother but yet he brought them right to the spot of his body. The cops also noted that Ed's brother had bumps and bruises on his forehead from a rock. There was no way he could've fallen and done that to himself.

One that's really striking about Ed Gein is that he was a calm man. People didn't expect anything like this from him. They said he was nice and quiet. When he was in jail he admitted everything without hesitation. He seemed like a normal man and acted like all was well. Maybe in his head he didn't feel as if he was doing something wrong? It's craziness.

The book "Deviant" is a definite must read. I might have been off with a few things here and there. It's probably one of the best books I've ever read. Also the most fucked up. The book is 100% true and I had to do a lot of research cause some of the things I couldn't believe.

Things like this strike me. I always wondered what things go on inside of a persons head when they want to mutilate someone. As sick and twisted as people like Gein might be, they're definitely interesting individuals.
