Exclusive: ‘Django Unchained’ Mini Game Lets You Become Bounty Hunter Dr. King Schultz.

By the way, when you see “Exclusive” in a subject line or title, that means I “Pressed” (a feature of Word Press) or re-blogged it. Usually the system doesn’t let me edit anything in the title, or I’d either take out the exclusive or say who is was the exclusive was from. So unless you see “Horror Boom Exclusive!” that means I hit “Press This” and/or re-blogged it. Just pointing this out because I don’s want anyone thinking I’m some horrible plagiarizing hack by claiming I came up with the exclusive.  We good? Oh, and in the “Related Articles” section, there’s some killer links for you to check out, as far as the soundtrack to the movie and a comic boo, that I didn’t even know was happening.

Name That (Horror) Frame Contest – Week of 8/26/12

OK! I’m worn out by the back-to-back (to-back) watching of the True Blood Season 5 Finale, and the second-to-last episode of Breaking Badmajor shit went down in both of them. What’s say we dig right in?

For the first frame, see if you can recognize the movie for this flick made over 20 years ago:

Hint: it (or another frame grabbed from the same movie) will be up sooner rather than later as part of a R.I.P. tribute piece.

And in the middle, up next…

Hint: From an anthology horror movie. If you watch ANY scary movies made in Thailand, you’ll probably get this one. And if you don’t watch any scary movies from Thailand… what the hell are you waiting for? You’re missing out, man!

aaaaand finishing off the list for the week, I’m mixing it up a little. So for image #3, we have… a movie that has not been released yet (but is on PLENTY of horror fan’s radar)! This is a PR photo that will either be used to advertise the movie (not on the posters I’ve seen yet-the poster is disturbing, though), or one of the stories. Oh, by the way, a photo that I do NOT own the rights to, and if someone who did create it or was part of The (Blank-blank ) Exhibition wants me to remove it, then I will.  Just holla at me. You might have heard of the movie, but I had to go a little out of my way to discover the image; I bumped into it while I was desperately flailing around online, hoping that by some miracle the movie had recently been released On Demand.* Yes, it’s another anthology movie, but this one  (unlike the above) will be rated NC-17. I just wish they had a release date! Got a guess for the following image?

And it was so gorgeous (even though there’s probably something ugly under that hair, and those may even be man-hands) I used it as the featured image. So take your best shot in the comments section! Also, until someone guesses them, all the previous weeks sets of pics are still up for grabs–not too late if you recognize any of ’em.

Oh, I should note after I post this I’ll be on vacation and on and off “the grid” till early September. Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll see a post or two, it’s just gonna slow down till I’m officially back (and my brain comes out of ‘vacation lag’). I have one more “Cold Chills for Summer Heat” piece, and it’s a doozy-but will take longer to write up. Till then, as Mr. Romero would say, stay scared!

Chills to Beat Summer Heat – Shutter (2004) Gallery

I’ve accidentally discovered a way to temporarily beat the summer heat – using horror media to send cold chills up and down our spines.

A sequence  took place in a scalding-hot steam oven, still didn’t feel warm in the room to me at all, though; I’ll take a wild guess that it was the horror, shock, and intensity of the of the scene that cooled me down.  Oh, and the scene was also probably the reason I couldn’t fall asleep till the sun was up; that entire movie [Frontier/s] is deeply and brutally unsettling, and the second half of the movie steps it up higher.

So! In early July I watched survival drama The Grey, starring Liam Neeson. It was after dark and the temperature was in the mid-80s; we had the ceiling fan going and a large standing fan aimed at us, but I still didn’t feel like having a single sheet over me. Even though our two cats love rolling around in the sunshine so much it seems to make them higher than a healthy dose of catnip, they lay around on the floor, chins resting on their paws, looking  simultaneously content and deflated. About an hour into the movie, I noticed that at some point between the opening credits and then I’d pulled the sheet up around me. In this case, it wasn’t the fear the movie produced (not that the movie isn’t scary, it’s fucking terrifying, that’s just not my point) but the fact the movie took place in sub-zero temperatures as the men trudged through the merciless snowstorm and struggled not to freeze to death or be eaten alive by wolves. It was a testament to the film-making that the Jack London-esque freezing conditions the characters were fighting through felt so real and pervasive that the temperature in the room had seemed to drop down to normal.

Well, surprise; turns out you don’t need to have the movie take place in Alaska to get this effect.  When I recently re-watched Frontier(s), halfway through the movie the uncomfortable warm temperature didn’t really bother me. One of the scenes involved a character who makes the fatal mistake of hiding from his attackers in a giant steam-oven, an attacker sees this and bolts the door, turns the steam on full blast, and the poor character is scalded my the steam and until the flesh starts melting off of him, then when the attacker FINALLY opens the door (after what seems like four blood-curdling hours later), he falls out and tries to crawl away, steaming and barely looking human. His eyes and hair and most of his nose are gone. A sequence that took place in a scalding-hot steam oven, still didn’t feel warm in the room to me at all, though; it was the horror , shock, and intensity of the of the scene that cooled me down.  Oh, and the scene was also probably the reason I couldn’t fall asleep till the sun was up; that entire movie is deeply and brutally unsettling.

Since Frontier(s) is pretty extreme and only for those with strong stomachs, though, I found some other ways to possibly cause cold chills. I’ll try* to get ten of them up before Labor Day.  So maybe you can check these out and possibly even feel like cranking the air-conditioning down a bit. It won’t raise your electric bill. You may want to grab something cool to drink; I noticed I went through a bit more water than usual. Not so much because I was hot, but because my mouth suddenly went a little dry.

Oh, you’re going to be seeing a doctor, Ton…

First up? Part one of a two-part gallery from the Thai movie Shutter (I took an insane amount of photos… all creepy). Well, if I can’t fix this glitch in the “Gallery” editor, maybe it’ll be one REALLY gigantic gallery–in which case part 2 may not be needed.

Oh, and I couldn’t add captions to show up under the thumbnails in a way that didn’t look clumsy, so if you go through the little slideshow, I added any captions, etc down near the lower left under “comments”. Preferably I’ll split it up, however, because over 100 photos is kind of a lot to page through in one sitting,  no matter how cool they are. Anyway, this gallery may make you colder if you’ve seen the movie.  Then again, it’s pretty hard not to get slightly freaked out by the images in Shutter to some degree… these guys know exactly how to scare the shit out of you. Trust me.
