American Horror Story: Asylum – Over 100 Images of Creepy Shots In New Opening Credits!

Well, if you’re reading this, I assume by now you’ve seen my post that had a You Tube video embedded in it of the first sick, creepy, and fun five minutes of American Horror Story: Asylum (if not, click here). Tuesday evening (well, Wednesday morning, it was definitely after midnight), the only link to the new five minutes was on Facebook, and guess what? It didn’t work (turns out I was not alone)! I was ready to turn in around 5:00 AM, but ended up staying up till after 8:00AM fiddling around with the goddamned thing to get it to work. I finally got so sleepy I decided to say the hell with it and grab some shut-eye. When I logged in today, I wasn’t really expecting anything, but ta-dah! Thus the aforementioned post. That was a pretty cool way to start the day.

Though some people didn’t like Adam Levine and what happened to him (he’s NOT DEAD, upset Adam Levine fans, he’s signed for the whole season) everyone lost their got-damn minds (all at the same time, apparently, judging from the various messages/boards almost bursting into flames.  about the new opening title credits sequence. They –and I — LOVED it. You probably noticed some quick blink-and-you-miss-them moments; flashes of raw, visceral images. I was curious and ended up getting screencaps for as many of those as I could for you to enjoy (I do NOT own them, nor do I own the copyright, they’re here for entertainment only) There’s a few clues –and verification of hints we already got– in there… if you’ve read anything about the upcoming season, you probably noticed them too. If you have theories, share them in the comments section. These filled in a few blanks for me too, I’ll post on it later–nothing that’ll spoil the thrills, though. More to come!

Check THESE out… and enjoy!

Name That Horror Frame Contest – Week of 10/7/12 – Special Thai Horror Edition

OK, trying a little something new here to see what happens. These aren’t just from a Thai horror movie. They aren’t just from a Thai supernatural  horror movie. They are all actually from the same  Thai supernatural horror movie!

I don’t even know if I should give you more hints than that.  This one is hard to find to rent; I had to watch it online (though if I can find a region 1/PAL version, I’ll probably just buy it). If you’ve seen it, though, you’ll know the answer, and I’m all for giving out a horror DVD to anyone who has also seen this excellent, frightening, fun Thai horror movie.

OK, you know you shouldn’t have hitched a ride in this truck to Bangkok (actually, that sounds like a terrible idea in the first place–I’d take my chances sitting on the roof of the vehicle) when the contents turn out to be anything like the below–

Second up, any sort of explanation for the below frame would take up way too much space. That’s blood, by the way. I’ve been sitting here trying to think of a horror movie from Thailand that had used CGI use so well and discreetly that it wasn’t slightly distracting, and I’m coming up with zero. And I’ve not only seen an extensive amount of Thai horror movies, I’ve seen every one I heard was good (or at least had one really good scare in it) and could get my hands on.

and finally, I’m sure this next one will look familiar if you’ve seen more than two horror movies from Thailand with ghosts in them. But if you recognize the above panels and FACE! YOUR! FEARS! (hint hint), you’ll know how it fits in:

That’s it for this week. If you don’t know what movies these are from and just REALLY want to see them, contact me and I’ll tell you. By the way, the  theatrical trailer for the movie all these frames are from hasn’t been posted yet, but I have it in my “Ten MORE Trailers to Keep You Awake” list, so you’ll know the movie in a month or so, regardless.

Any guesses?

This photo is NOT from a Thai horror movie, I just thought I should show something beautiful from Thailand as well as all the horrifying Thai ghosts! This is a photo from Thai Language Camp, Petchabon province (Photo credit: Daffydus)

Scariest Short Horror Film of the Week – Bedfellows (2010)

 

          Terror always follows the phone call in the middle of the night…

After watching the near-minimalist short film Bedfellows, I have the following statement to make in response to the film’s tagline above: I fucking agree.  I must still have vacation-brain, since I made some seriously bad decisions about what to watch when home alone Friday night.  I knew I’d be alone in the house after dark for at least another hour, I knew this short had been rated as all-time scariest on Fearnet.com, I was pretty sure I knew what was coming, and yet I suppose I still figured Oh what the hell, it’s less than three minutes long, how scary can it be?

The answer is: one scary, scary, scary, VERY scary short film.

But I didn’t stop there, oh no. I saw there were a couple dozen (at least) short horror films directed by Drew Daywalt. The second one was equally scary, the third made my heart slam clumsily in my chest, and after that I decided to watch them with the sound turned down as low as I could get it without turning it completely off. After one more I was cursing myself and finally, made the one sensible decision I’d made that evening: I decided to watch more in the daylight, when I share them here.  Oh, speaking of that, funny story! After experiencing that handful of shorts, I discovered a load of adrenaline in my system even though I was only running on four hours of sleep and losing a fight with a tension headache! That was certainly some co-incidence!  I’m only putting up this one (rather than multiple shorts in one entry) because I’d like to not have nightmares when I finally do get to sleep. Whenever that  is…

I purchased the vector image from Shutterstock.com for commercial use, then took it from there. If I can get VHS tapes, machetes, and popcorn boxes to add to the explosion, I will!

Good thing I keep the phone on my side of the bed (and even better, my husband almost always sleeps half-on-top of the bedsheets/comforter).

In other news (not as scary), I’m working on a logo for my Facebook page (not launched yet, but getting there).  If you dig the above OR the below images, please do give me some feedback via the comments section below… or tell me which one you prefer. I find/make cool images, then have trouble fitting “Horror Boom” on them.

I'll take two tickets for the George Romero movie, please

I wanted it bloodier, so I re-did it below!

More of those coming up, along with more just plain terrifying  shorts from Mr. Daywalt (and others …but only if they’re scary as hell!

Nope, I do NOT mind waiting for the fresh popcorn.

Nope, I do NOT mind waiting several minutes for the fresh batch of popcorn. Really, no hurry at all…
