The “Creepy Diary” – Have You Seen It Yet?

I’d like to tell you some background on this, or how I found it, but the truth is I got lost  (it’s not that I don’t understand how to navigate my way around online, but that ADD and an internet connection can add up to plenty of lost time, especially if you want to check out anything horror-related you find that’s new to you) and stumbled on it. Yesterday I go online to get some holiday shopping done today, next thing I’m seeing a link to some creepy kid’s drawings and a heated discussion going on whether they are real or not– a large faction argued that yes, they had to be real, but the little girl who drew them probably had some mental illness (multiple personality disorder was the most popular theory).

Me?  I think they’re the product of a creative (and relatively sane) adult who had an idea for a creepy series of drawings to go with a story and wanted it to go viral. Well, I don’t know how long they’ve been floating around (someone mentioned 4chan as the first online source), but I’m glad I stumbled over them. If you haven’t seen them before, here’s the first half of the “Creepy Diary” below. I’d like to give a source, but whenever they pop up, the drawings and diary are never even vaguely credited to anyone, or signed. If I do find out who created them and owns the copyright, I’ll gladly give them credit where credit is due. They’re not part of any viral marketing campaign for a horror movie or any other kind of genre media (which was my immediate thought, but no dice). Maybe the artist/writer wanted to remain anonymous –no matter how tempting it was to put their name on it– for maximum creepiness factor.

Or maybe, just maybe…

Nah. They couldn’t be real.

Could they?

Film Review: ‘Insidious: Chapter 2’

OK, we’re definitely on board! Variety loved it. Bottom line on our hopes for this movie: A. To find out what happens to the Lambert family next and B. a haunted-house thrill ride. Also, we could use a good James Wan-induced scream!

Check out the new Insidious Chapter 2 featurettes – just go  to the official site to see them all,  including some creepy ‘interactive’ features. You may not want to check them out alone in the dark with the sound blasting, though…

Adam Wingard’s “You’re Next” – We Get The Feeling You REALLY Want Spoilers (Spoiler Alert)!

Due to the fact that several variations of “You’re Next spoilers” have been our top Google search term per our WordPress statistics for the past ten days, and the fact that a Variety review that we “Re-Pressed” that simply contained the tag “you’re next spoilers” because there were some mild spoilers in there has been getting top traffic …even over The Conjuring pieces and brand-new American Horror Story Coven details (and even the notorious ‘ Is This The Face of Javier Botet as Mama?’ piece, which is responsible for something like 30% of Horror Boom’s total number of hits over the last year). If those weren’t enough big enough hints, we’ve gotten a flood of actual requests.  So!  We’re guessing people would be happy if we posted some spoilers for Adam Wingard‘s You’re Next, which opens August 23rd.

A 'blink and you'll miss it' shot from the trailer

A ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ shot from the trailer

We had two options after combing online for specific details: either write a long, thoughtful piece that combines every single spoiler into a coherent, elaborate synopsis of the entire film that’s as close as we can get without having seen it, or give you a series of direct links to the pages that contained the most details. For now, we’re going with the latter due to 1. time constraints and using all our energy to find what we already did (going through endless message board threads takes longer then you’d think, and there’s a surprisingly small amount of spoilers for this flick out there) and 2. we already feel sort of vulgar blurting it out.  People have been going nuts to see this (after waiting since 2011, the first Midnight Madness at TIFF premiere) and anticipation is high (despite the really lame TV spots and, sadly, countless instant comparisons to The Strangers and even The Purge that some–sorry–ignorant moviegoers have been assuming from a glance at the posters without doing any further investigation into what the movie is about). Thus, we don’t think it’s gonna flop at the box office due to spoiler spillage. This writer still feels slightly tacky for posting these major spoiler links, even though people have asked repeatedly (and politely).

Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 12.20.56 AM

OK then! SPOILER ALERT, these links contain SPOILERS! You may have to highlight or mouse over the text for some, but they’re right there. You want spoilers? Here’s the links and what you get.

  • At the end of this thread (if it’s not already, set preferences to ‘flat’ so all the posts in the thread are inline and you don’t have to click a dozen times to get to what you want to read) there is a list of how every character dies, and who survives. Then there’s a newer post that elaborates and clarifies all of them. THEN someone asked for clarification and key plot points late in the movie, and pretty much all the big reveals are… revealed. Maximum spoilage, so tread lightly! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1853739/board/flat/212515132
  • Here’s a funny, good review of the flick I found on Topless Robot (heh) that really sets up the plot and characters in the movie, and contains spoilers (including on kills). It’s good reading (if you don’t mind some spoilers; this is NOT a review I would even think about recommending to anyone who wants to read a review, but also go in as clean as possible before seeing You’re Next). It’s also a handy guide to keeping the characters straight when you’re reading spoilers that name names: http://www.toplessrobot.com/2013/06/laff_review_youre_next.php
  • And last but not least, here’s the IMDB parent’s guide. Several people contributed and wrote  the “violence/gore” spoilers, meaning you’ll see some things repeated. One of the contributors, though, took pains to mention character names and sort of set up the scenario for the act of violence/gore in a very, very spoiler-y way, basically explaining entire scenes. Those red “Spoiler!Spoiler!” areas you need to mouse over, added specifically so that no-one accidentally spoils themselves by merely glancing at some words before they realize it, were inserted by yours truly.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1853739/parentalguide

Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 12.09.18 AM

We hope this scratches that spoiler itch for You’re Next. Honestly, we’d advise you to wait till you see the movie–hey, you waited this long, you can make it till opening weekend–to preserve the surprises, but if you really must know… then you’re welcome.

Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 12.32.58 AM

Oh, and the below photo–shown VERY fast in the trailer–is spoiler-y. It’ll fit right in if you read the IMDB Parent’s Guide we linked to. You’ll know who this chick is…

Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 12.31.01 AM

“You want to (spoiler) me on top of (spoiler)?”

*I had to actually take a break from researching because I got sick of threads with titles like “Total ripoff of the strangers? U can totally figure it out”. Then I just started to get noticeably depressed when I saw that quite a few groups of people thought that it was about an actual wolf, lamb, and tiger who were hunting humans in their home. (Rant warning) For some reason the ‘actual animals’ in question in this imagined scenario would bother to dress up in people’s clothing and wearing white masks over their real animal faces (I guess, so they’d be incognito),plus be able to operate crossbow mechanisms. When I started seeing arguments about how it was unrealistic to have animals as the masked killers because sheep, big cats, and wolves couldn’t operate doorknobs,  my brain just made a unilateral decision to power down in order to protect itself.  This stupid bullshit wasn’t one or two stupid people or grade-schoolers, but entire fucking  factions.  I guess I was asking for it… but these are the kind of idiots who give real horror fans a bad name, and that pisses me off. (End of rant).

Is this connected to the “five knives” scene mentioned in those spoilers? We kinda think so…

100 Bloody Acres makes its US cinema debut

Remember that very recent  (less than 45 minutes ago) post on 100 Bloody Acres? Well, John Brawley himself, the DP (Director of Photography) has his own awesome and informative blog here. Not only does he offer a ton of links in this piece, but easy access to that fun (and award-winning) social/viral marketing we mentioned earlier. Check it out!

This weekend in the US , my good friends the Cairnes brothers make their US debut with the fresh new film, 100 Bloody Acres.

The boys have been working hard with the fellas at Morgans Organic to get their unique and design award winning website up and running and you can see some of the Morgans truly original earlier social marketing work here.

It’s already been well reviewed by several including even the Hollywood Reporter that had this to say….

“Melbourne-based brothers Cameron and Colin Cairnes show impressive discipline in their modestly budgeted feature debut, mixing gore and chuckles in equal measure and creating unusually fleshed-out characters that have the film knocking at the door of above-average splatter comedies like Shaun of the Dead and The Cabin in the Woods. Gore hounds looking for something different in their horror-film diet should propel solid business when Doppelganger Releasing opens the film in limited release…

Review: 100 Bloody Acres is a blood soaked blast

THEY FIND YA… THEY GRIND YA! “A Blood soaked blast”! With that tagline, that review headline, and the title 100 Bloody Acres– we are SOLD! We wish we could offer opinions on the horror-comedy (or, hey, we dunno, our own review) but since we haven’t been able to find the flick to watch it(all our research showed it was available on VOD/iTunes, but no dice as of this writing), here’s a great review by Ryan from Rhino’s Horror. Check out the attached trailer, and for once, go ahead and click on the ‘pop-ups’ (the ones you probably usually disable automatically when you watch anything on You Tube) that flash up during the trailer and say to check out their ‘products’ for some fun viral marketing.

Written and directed by Cameron and Colin Cairnes, 100 Bloody Acres is a blood splattered blast that seamlessly blends comedy into the horror genre. This marks their first feature film together and it follows two brothers, Reg and Lindsay Morgan, who are struggling to keep their organic blood and bone fertilizer business in motion. Their secret “recipe” for success was a huge boom to business, but lately supply has been gravely low. When Reg stumbles upon 3 travelers stranded on the side of the road, he comes up with a ridiculous solution to their problem, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his big brother.

When would YOU get the hell out of the house in The Conjuring?

A very valid question! Yeah, I think the birds would do it for me (if not before then). Take the quiz (but beware of MAJOR spoilers if you haven’t seen the movie yet – and if you haven’t, we highly recommend you do)! By the way, take some time to check out Renae Rude’s amazing blog, The Paranormalist — recommended, and often creepy, reading!

Renae Rude - The Paranormalist

Nearly every haunted house movie begins the same way – a middle-class family invests every penny they have in an old fixer-upper.  There is a married couple, a child (or children,) a cat and/or a dog. There is often (though not always) something a little dysfunctional or unusual about the family. Communication is these families is usually spotty at best. The husband and wife don’t confide in each other. The parents ignore unusual behavior by the kids or the animals, and don’t give credence to anything odd the kids say. The family is full of hope. It’s a brand-new, high-stakes, fresh-start for everyone.

Then bad things start to happen.

Ogre and I just got back from seeing The Conjuring. It’s a great movie in many ways, destined to become a horror classic.

But …

I could not help but ask myself the same question I always do when I see another…

Ten Trivia Facts About The Conjuring – We Bet You Don’t Know Them All!

Unless you’re as obsessed with The Conjuring as we are, we’re guessing there’s going to be at least a few of these that are news to you. Either way, these (and the links we give for more information) make for some interesting– and creepy– reading!

Screen shot 2013-07-18 at 11.24.48 PM

1. Lorraine Warren herself has a very brief cameo in The Conjuring – in one of the classroom scenes. You’ll need to keep an eye out to catch her, though.

2. We’re not going to go into back story (here, anyway) but when we poked around online to try to find out more about the real case, we discovered that the main demon, the one that terrorized the Perron family the most (especially Lili Taylor‘s character) and wanted to cause them the most pain, was called “Bathsheba”.

Screen shot 2013-07-18 at 5.43.58 AM

3. Remember the ‘Lipstick-Faced Demon’ from James Wan‘s Insidious (2011) who scared the shit out of everybody (especially Barbara Hershey when we first saw him peeking out behind Wilson’s character)?

Screen shot 2013-07-18 at 11.15.49 PM

AAAAAAAAAAAIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

That actor’s name is Joseph Bishara, and he plays Bathsheba in The Conjuring. Uh-oh.

4.  You may have–OK, probably have– noticed via the film’s marketing campaign that there’s a doll in the movie so goddamned creepy that it makes the clown doll in Poltergeist look cuddly.  The doll is based on another actual case the Warrens investigated.

conjuringstillcreepyassdoll

Creepy-ass doll created for The Conjuring

5.  The aforementioned creepy-ass doll that Wan based this sub-plot on was a Raggedy Anne doll named ‘Annabelle the doll’.  James Wan decided rather than use a Raggedy Anne (Quote from Wan: I could not go to the company that makes Raggedy Anne and say, “Hey, can we portray your doll,  you know, the product that you make as this thing that is a conduit to demonic spirits?”) he’d carefully design, craft, and build the creepiest doll he could find. Mission fucking accomplished. (See: Dead Silence if you doubt how sleep-with-the-lights-on scary Wan can make dolls and puppets)  The Warren Occult Museum displays the original Annabelle doll (in a glass case— for the protection of visitors, not the doll), and you can read about the actual case here… especially if you’re feeling sleepy but need to stay awake.

Screen shot 2013-07-14 at 6.08.19 AM

The real deal.

6. Only one actual prop from the actual Warren’s Occult Museum  (the museum was recreated by the production for scenes in the film), was used during filming. Ed Warren was an avid artist and painter,  and James Wan says he saw one in the museum that “fit perfectly into our movie version of their haunted museum, and that’s what we have in there”. (Latino-review.com)

7. The movie’s original title was “The Warren Files” – possibly because the studio was considering a franchise (we like The Conjuring better). This recent featurette uses the title. In fact, the featurette was included in this piece reporting the news that a sequel was already in the works, despite the fact the movie is several days away from opening at the time (not that we’re complaining, mind you, especially if James Wan directs again).

8. Andrea Perron (who was about 12 years old when shit got real in their new home)wrote a book about her family’s experience called House of Darkness, House of Light. You can see her reading an excerpt from in below. Also, she has her own You Tube channel.

9. During filming,  star Lili Taylor (who also underwent a number of make-up preparations to represent her worsening stages of possession) actually blew her voice out from screaming so loudly and repeatedly… more than once. We assume she (and the sound editors) had a lot of work to get done in ADR.  (source: Collider.com article here)

conjuringstillliliwithmatch

clap clap

10. Cast and crew reported, when asked in interviews, that they experienced strange events during filming, such as scratches appearing on Farmiga’s computer after signing on for the film (see below quote), people inexplicably waking up between 3 and 4 AM (“the devil’s hour’)  and the real-life Carolyn Perron falling and breaking her hip while her family was visiting the set.

“We’d sent her the script back in December and she’s in New York. James [Wan] is in L.A. So she read it immediately. We got the call from her reps, who said she loved it and wanted to get on the phone with James, or Skype the next day. … She went to sleep. She came back in the morning to get on her computer to Skype him and there were three deep scratches on her computer screen. Completely inexplicable. Like, they weren’t there the night before when she read the screenplay on the computer, but they were there in the morning. And there was just no way to explain what it was but stuff like that has happened constantly.”   Producer Peter Safran

Read Twenty Snippets From Reviews Of ‘The Conjuring’ That Make Us Even More Psyched For Friday! (UPDATED 6/17)

Yup, the long eagerly awaited horror movie from James Wan that got an R-rating from the MPAA for sheer scariness, The Conjuring, will finally be released into theaters this Friday, July 19th (we had to force ourselves not to end that sentence with at least eight exclamation points!!!!!!!!). Every review we’ve read makes us even more impatient and excited to see it. Here’s twenty (it started out as ten quotes, then the piece just …well, took on a life of its own, so to speak) of some of the best, most exciting excerpts/blurbs from various critics lucky enough to have seen it over the last few weeks. Enjoy (and get ready to start jumping from the top of a wardrobe up and down)! I’ve provided links to the reviews whenever possible.

Screen shot 2013-07-16 at 1.41.41 AM

The Conjuring is probably the best, certainly in a long time. Thoughtful where its competition is glib, featuring substantive and relatable characters, and steadily-paced where most feel lackadaisical, rushed or uneven, Wan has made a truly great movie. And I’m only talking about the parts that I saw from between my fingers. –Todd Gilchrist, The Daily Dead

It’s very difficult to find a modern horror film that doesn’t make viewers laugh at it for even a few minutes, it is the curse of the “we’ve seen it all” audience –but The Conjuring knows you’ve seen it all and still manages to deliver some of the best scares I’ve seen in years.   -Spencer Perry, Shock Till You Drop

The Conjuring is a masterclass in absolute terror that’s destined to become a classic within the genre. There’s no question that for most it will easily be scariest film of the summer… or even the year. The flick showcases the kind of pure, relentless horror that will leave audiences thoroughly creeped out and screaming. –Steve “Uncle Creepy” Barton, Dread Central

Screen shot 2013-07-16 at 1.43.19 AM
It’s not just the “jump scare.” That’s far too simple. As Wan showed in ‘Insidious’ – and does so even more so in his new film, ‘The Conjuring‘ – he is the unrivaled champion of a specific sort of hold-your-breath scene, where you know the jump is just about to happen. But he holds it. And holds it. And holds it just a little bit more. And just when you think it’s a goof or a head-fake, BLAM!, the thing you knew was going to pop out at you, pops out you – and there’s a good chance you just shouted and made a fool of yourself.  -Jordan Hoffman, for screencrush.com

conjuringstillliliwithmatch
Ultimately the sort of relentless, expertly tricked-out scarefest that leaves one feeling happily drained rather than deeply, permanently unsettled, the film nonetheless heightens its impact by playing the material utterly straight where it counts.   –Justin Chang, Variety.com 

As any horror movie fan will tell you, it’s all about the sound when it comes to frightening the audience.  Well, The Conjuring nails it.  You have to prepare yourself to live in fear of what is coming while watching the movie, because the sound cues, or the hushed silence of a scene, is going to get you no matter how impenetrable you may think you are to scary movies.  —-Kathryn Schroeder, filmfracture.com

…This is something else entirely. For full-on fear and dread, the kind that makes you start squirming at the beginning of the scene, because you know someone’s about to open a door they shouldn’t, this movie starts creepy and maintains a hold on your spine for the next 112 minutes. –Alanso Durande,  The Wrap

The Conjuring manages to take what you expect from a film of this style and offer surprise on top of surprise. Instead of going for cheap gags and fake jump scares, the film sets-up and pays off every time with little room for you to prepare yourself for what comes next. Lest you think that The Conjuring will settle for typical “Here’s a scary lady face” or “Listen, a weird noise!” you’ll be in for a rude awakening when its relentless visuals cause you to lose sleep.  -Spencer Perry, Shock Till You Drop

If you get seriously freaked out by effective horror movies, I warn you… “The Conjuring” will stick with you. I can’t wait to see it again, and I am excited to see it with a big crowd. I think that shared theatrical experience of being terrified is one of the great thrills of being a film fan, and this should be a great example of that.  -DrewMcWeeny, HitFix

This sort of expert audience manipulation doesn’t come purely from scrimping and saving and working within budgetary constraints that prohibit the filmmakers from showing their monsters. It comes from truly understanding what is scary and how to maximize that suspense, with or without the money to show the monster that will eventually invade viewers’ nightmares.  -Todd Gilchrist, The Daily Dead

theconjuringstill_thingonceiling

The question is never what’s behind a particular corner, but the awful worry that something is already beside you; that it (and there are a lot of variations on “it”) can come from all sides.  –Samuel Zimmerman, Fangoria.com

…this house has seen many years of strange occurrences, murder and death, curses and witchcraft, and pain.  Just when you think you know the one evil presence that is lurking within you discover it’s much more perplexing than you ever expected, and a great deal more fun to watch because of it.  —Kathryn Schroeder, filmfracture.com

THE CONJURING not only wants to scare you, but loves to. Even indoors, the film’s action spreads out, soaking every inch of the frame. It’s twice that Wan stages multi-tiered spookshow set pieces, and both are intense, terrifying pieces of work. The entire film is. –Samuel Zimmerman, Fangoria.com

[Wan] springs the surprises within those long shots, timing things so they actually do surprise, often letting the creepy stuff actually creep up — this is the rare horror film where the fear isn’t in what terrible vision the movie might cut to next but in what might reach from the shadows you’re looking at.  -Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice

conjuringstilljuly.com

Even as Wan employs familiar fright tactics, he brings to the material an evident emphasis on chilling iconography and careful rhythms, as opposed to leaning on money shots and hokey mythology to generate forgettable jolts…  even down to its very last shot, “The Conjuring” demonstrates a scary — and welcome — amount of care.  —William Goss, film.com

I can’t speak to the film’s accuracy in depicting the events in question, and I generally speaking have no sense of spirituality to bounce off of the events in the film. But there are things in Wan’s film that, for the sake of me sleeping soundly, I’d prefer never to see again.  –-Todd Gilchrist, The Daily Dead

There are scary movies, and then there are SCARY movies.  The Conjuring fits into the latter category as it will undoubtedly frighten you to the point of laughter, make you squirm in your seat, cover your eyes, and wish you had left the lights on in the house because you will be afraid of the dark when you get home.  The Conjuring is the horror movie we dream of, because it’s a hark back to an older style of horror filmmaking, before torture, excessive blood and guts, and the like took over cinema screens, and found-footage too. —Kathryn Schroeder, filmfracture.com

EXTREMELY effective. The Conjuring is home to some of the single most frightening haunted house scares ever committed to film. My biggest fear going in was that some of these moments would come off as goofy or too over-the-top, but Wan manages to clearly ride the line between reality and the absurd as if he were a stone grinding against the blade of a razor.  —Steve Barton, Dread Central

conjuringstillveraonphone
…it takes almost no time for “The Conjuring” to immerse the viewer in its spell, as it teases seemingly minor jolts into frissons of terror, and turns a simple game of hide-and-seek into a tour de force of sustained excitement.   -Justin Chang, Variety.com

Most thrillers stop being terrifying when their mysteries are revealed, but in the screenplay by Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes, the more we know, the more we dread. As for me, I was screaming. Out loud. Which I generally don’t do in crowded theaters. For a movie like this, that counts as a standing ovation.  —Alanso Duralde,  thewrap.com

BONUS!  Two more great blurbs, added today -both the below are from Rolling Stone magazine’s Peter Travers:

  • “It scared the living crap out of me”.
  • “Know this: You’ll scream your head off.”

INTERVIEW: PACIFIC RIM’s Guillermo del Toro on Remaking Classic Japanese Monster Movies (Cinemovie)

GDT: I’ve been doing special effects since I was a kid. I did them professionally for over a decade. I know every tool… The tragedy is to use them as a shortcut creatively and as an end all, like “the solution has to be a digital effect,” no. We use miniatures.  We use incredibly elaborate physical effects in the movie. Not only are there pilots shaking, but the boat is in a gigantic gimbal.  The street where Mana is was rigged with hydraulics. The whole street: the pavement, the lampposts; the cars, the sidewalk, everything. Every time the kaiju took a step, the whole street jumped every time and she reacted to that because the whole set jumped… We built one hundred physical sets in this movie, and completely overtook Pinewood Studios in Toronto and spilled over into two more studios.

-from the interview

Damn, Pacific Rim is just sounding better and better! Click on the big red link below to read an awesome and very entertaining new interview on Cinemovie.com with Guillermo del Toro on a bunch of cool shit, including what kind of monster scares him (we agree with his answer), digital VS. practical effects in big budget movies, and his favorite monster flicks.

The Conjuring And Its True Story

“Perron’s description of Bathsheba is where things really start getting creepy because she describes the spirit’s face as having almost no real features. Instead, it looked like a lifeless beehive with vermin crawling all over it. “Its head was leaning off to one side. It was round and gray, resembling a desiccated hornet’s nest. I couldn’t see anything underneath it… no eyes or mouth…it looked like the cobwebs hanging in the corners of the cellar.” This, as described by her mother.”

Jesus! I’d just sleep in my fucking car until we could find another house to live in… parked a couple counties away. Anyway, read this article for more disturbing details about the real-life case –also known as the Harrisville Haunting, or The Perrone House Haunting, that inspired upcoming nightmare put to celluloid, The Conjuring (opening on July 19th… NOT SOON ENOUGH FOR US! There’s lots of great video with interviews from the real-life Perrone family included in the piece… recommended while you wait for the movie to arrive.

James Wan’s latest foray into the haunted house genre leads him straight into The Conjuring, a film “based on a true story” about a family that was terrorized by demonic entities in which ghost hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to investigate. Many movies are based on some truth, and when it comes to something as terrifying as The Conjuring, then naturally we want to dig deeper into the events that inspired them.
