HOLY SHIT! Gory Official Red Band Trailer For the Fucking Evil Dead Reboot from Raimi and Co.!

The first  Red Band teaser trailer for the 2012 Evil Dead  reboot just hit the internet about an hour ago (as of this writing), and it is SHOCKING and GORY and FUN and SICK and I think NICOTERO is involved and a TOTAL  EVIL DEAD BLOOD BATH  and I just got a LOT more fucking excited* about it!  I wasn’t expecting that much gore, but  HOAH!  I’m talking  HOAH! LEE! SHIT!  Check it out below, even though you don’t get to see sexy Bruce Campbell anywhere!

No wonder the fans at NY Comic Con lost their damn minds. Oh, and I almost forgot — Happy Birthday, Mr. Raimi! Nice of you to give your fans a present. Oh, uh, retroactive warning, don’t watch this when you’ve got a paper cut on your tongue. Or easily offended. Sorry about that, good thing I said something before you saw this, huh?

Thank you to The Onion© for the inspirational headline. Don’t get me wrong,  I would have sworn all over the place anyway, but that’s the first thing I thought of  (after Fuck yeah, Motherfucker!  which wasn’t as descriptive).

The movie’s current release date is April 12, 2013!

*I’m not a big Diablo Cody fan, and I hear she was involved with the screenplay, so that kind of tamped it down. Also, it made me feel old, which I’m not a big fan of either. But THIS, THIS shit here, made me forget all about all that!

Name That (Horror) Frame – Week of 9/23/12 – Masters of Horror Edition!

The  Masters of Horror series doesn’t get near the amount of recognition it deserves. And yes, the best episodes truly are the stuff of nightmares.

Now would be an appropriate time for me to repeat I do NOT own the copyrights for any of the images here, nor own them in any way–I put them here for entertainment purposes only!

Well, if you’re anywhere near as big a fan of the Mick Garris-produced Showtime series Masters of Horror,  you’ll be in luck this week.  Those shows (OK, most of them, they got pretty hit-or-miss in the final season) were very, very memorable.  Just the opening credits (the frames above, and directly below) were a disturbing work of art. Actually, I’m not sure why I’m using the past tense …they still creep me out.

Yep, that’s someone burying an axe is someone else’s head.

So, if you can name these episodes, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll win a DVD. I’m working on a list of the top ten episodes of Masters of Horror, but I’m having serious trouble narrowing it down. Hell, I own more than ten of them. I might just have to spotlight the best ones and forget lists. By the way, I definitely count the unaired Takashi Miike-directed “Imprint” as an official episode. So much sick shit went down on the series that I still wonder if it was a publicity stunt Showtime pulled, or something.. I’ll have to look into that. There’s a torture scene in that episode that makes the notorious one towards the end of Miike’s Audition look tame.  I still have to cover my eyes with my fingers for most of the “Imprint” scene, it’s that hard to watch.

But I digress. The photos below are all from different episodes… feel free to comment if you just want to know which episodes they are! The Masters of Horror  series doesn’t get near the amount of recognition it deserves. And yes, the best episodes truly are the stuff of nightmares.

I believe the above frame took place during the opening credits of the episode…

And below, what the last thing you’d want to see written on a wall when you woke up at the bottom of a pit?

and finally, thanks to the genius of Greg Nicotero’s make-up and FX work… what a shot.

That’s it (for this game) until next week. Don’t forget, American Horror Story Season One comes out on DVD and Blu- ray Tuesday. Expect at least one piece on it this week!
