The Munsters Return!

(source)

This Friday October 26th, The Munsters return with a new re-booted TV movie, “Mockingbird Lane”. When I was younger, I was a huge fan of the original 1960’s sitcom “The Munsters”. My favorite character was Herman (a parody of  Frankenstien’s Monster), whom will be portrayed by Jerry O’Connell. The vampire bride of Herman (Lily Munster) will be played by Portia de Rossi, the chill vampire Grandpa will be played by Eddie Izzard, Eddie Munster (the Werewolf child) will be played by Mason Cook, and last but not least, Marilyn will be played by Charity Wakefield.

Are you excited about this remake? I most definitely am! And if you check out the trailer, you’ll see they modernized all the characters a bit more. Herman doesn’t have the stereotypical Frankenstein bolts in his neck as he did in the 60’s show. He is more “normal” looking. The other characters have also have some modifications. Check out the trailer, and tell me what you think!

Best HALLOWEEN Ever!

Halloween was awesome. I enjoyed scaring the crap out of kids. It sucks that it only comes one time a year. I miss it already!

This year I bought a long black cloak that came with a hood that no one could see through, and put a mask over my face just to make it creepy! Then I put the bowl of candy in my lap and stood completely still and waited. One kid came up to me and said “I’m not afraid of anything!” he reached for some candy I popped up and he went running into the bushes and got then kept running! That was my favorite one!

We had the best Halloween decorations in my entire neighborhood! We also had scary music playing in the background. It was a great Halloween. Next year, we need to top this year and do something really scary!

Thanks for reading! I hope you had a great Halloween this year too! Follow me on Twitter @rhfang! Also subscribe to “Totally Horror”!

Halloween

When I think of Halloween, I often times hark back to when I was a kid, filled with all the excitement and anticipation of dressing up in a cool Halloween costume, the awesomeness of filling my bag with all kinds of candy by the end of the night.  The fall weather was magical, soaring from door to door, the musical score was “Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet, Give Me Something Good to Eat,” or merely “Trick or Treat” for short. I was blessed with an assortment of candies, with the headliners being Twizzlers, Snickers, M&Ms, and candy corn, the sugar high satisfied for weeks.  Our costumes would compete, as we dressed up as our favorite super heroes or cartoon characters, occasionally running into another kid with the same costume, or depending on the trend at the time, running into several clones.  The creepy decorations on some of the houses were cool, as well as the spooky music, for some this was scary, to me it was fun. Like a lot of kids I looked forward to October 31st, I remember in school we used to have the Halloween parties, the teachers would decorate, we’d dress up, have sweets, and punch, and have a merry old time.  Now something that was a bit scary, and with good reason, was the haunted house, and even now as an adult, the concept of a haunted house remains cool.  I’ve been to several, some would be a ride, others a walk-through, some had people who would all but reach out and touch you, others had horrific screams and mood changing music playing in the background…what they all had in common was the darkness…one of the essential elements of fear…of course when it is dark, you never know, something could always JUMP OUT to get you, in darkness your eyes (and at times your ears) can be your biggest enemy.

Below are just some melodic thoughts on Halloween:

Harvest the pumpkins, you’ll make quite a scene, Illustrious, dreams. Visions of Halloween,
A costume party,
A picture of Dracula in the lobby,
A decorated mannequin posing as a dead body…
Are you scared yet? Hardly…
Delights of fright,
Frolic through the night,
She dresses like a devil with her fake horns, Nature, adorns,
As you consume tasty chocolates and caramel popcorn…

I went to Spirit Halloween last night and checked out some of their Halloween decorations and costumes. And as always, the decor was amazing! I have a few pictures that I will be posting onto the site later to show you how realistic the decor looks. Especially the masks.

Spirit Halloween also has great animatronics! There is a animatronic of ‘The Exorcist’ that moves really well, and looks horrifying!

I mainly went to help my Mom buy some scary decorations for a party. I know the house will look horrifying because of the work of Spirit Halloween store. Check out their website in the page ‘Horror Links’. Also, thanks Spirit Halloween for your awesome work! You guys are my favorite Halloween store!

CURSED – Mini Review

Halloween is right around the corner and I have this sudden love for Werewolves. And the most recent Werewolf movies I saw was ‘Cursed’, a 2005 horror flick directed by the great Wes Craven starring Christina Ricci, Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), and Portia de Rossi (Nip/Tuck) centered on three young adults in Los Angeles, who, after being mauled by the beast, learn they must kill their attacker if they hope to change their fate to avoid becoming werewolves too. This film was pretty good in my opinion. It had great CGI, pretty good acting, and good writing too.

‘Cursed’ started production in 2003. It was the reunion of Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson, who hit big with ‘Scream’ back in the 1990s.

What’s rare in many Werewolf films is that in this one the Werewolf is female. And I like how they didn’t make the wolf a cute wolf, but a bloodthirsty horrifying beast! The way the pretty woman transformed into the wolf was just amazing special affects.

When I saw the film, I had no idea it was rated R! It does not even look like a R rated film. I’d say it’s for kids (who love horror) from 13 and up.

The only bad thing about the film is the lack of blood and guts. I feel that the definition of a horror movie is that it should always have horrifying scenes and blood and gore. One example of a great Werewolf movie was the 2010 film , ‘The Wolfman’.  That film was super gorey (I mean almost made me sick gorey)! And I feel that is how a Werewolf film should be.
