Latin Horror: There Will be Sangre!
“There Will be Sangre!
Being Latino myself, I’m a fan of the Latin horror-based website given that there are not many sites like it. Thanks to Edwin Pagan that is no longer the case.
The Latino and Spanish communities have a lot to offer in terms of horror and the macabre and what better place to showcase those various attributes and provide coverage than Latin Horror. I was thrilled to see their new promo that makes me want to just go out there and do some filming! Check out their promo below:

Rec 3: Genesis Teaser Trailer
Finally, aside from some photographs on the web, we get a sneak peak at the upcoming horror Rec 3: Genesis! Being that it’s a teaser, it’s a little hard to say on whether or not it will be good but judging by this sneak peak and the track record of its predecessors, I’d say that it’s going to be a good one:
Hellraiser: Revelations Trailer
Wow, I must say that the new Hellraiser trailer looks like pure, solidified donkey poop! And no Doug Bradley??? What?! Doomed for epic failure…
Forget The Sopranos, Meet the Vampire Mob!
“We are all famous to a few people.”
He’s a hitman and a vampire, and he just found out his mother-in-law is moving in for eternity.
Got your attention yet? Good, because this catchy title is what first intrigued me into taking a further look into the webseries that is the Vampire Mob. Created by writer/director Joe Wilson, Vampire Mob is a unique blend of crime and comedy of the intelligent kind. No slapstick here, but genuine laughs provided by Wilson’s smart and witty scriptwriting.
Lending to the entertainment value of the show is Don Grigioni (John Colella) who plays the smart-ass, vampire hitman in which one of his priorities, aside from watching his own back, is to provide food for he and his wife Annie Grigioni (Reamy Hall); food being blood. Subsequently, since Don’s mother-in-law, Virginia Jones (Marcia Wallace), is moving in, Don’s task of bringing home food has become daunting. No man would want to upset their mother-in-law, right?
Virginia, now a creature of the night, thanks to Annie turning her (yes, her own daughter) for what seems to be a pretty smart idea; Virginia is now able to provide Annie and her sister (who is a non-vamp) the long-term/life duty of being babysitter to their children, granted she doesn’t go out in the sun. Of course, there is the matter of the fangs which will undoubtedly scare the kids. But fear not for prior to being turned, Virginia was relegated to using false teeth, that’s right dentures.
Now in it’s Second Season, this is merely a taste (no pun intended) of what Vampire Mob has to offer!
Vampire Mob is not to be missed; the great camera work, acting and writing for the show displays just how this could be a show worthy of being on television and not just on the web; it is truly a good time!
Paranormal Activity 3 Trailer
Where did this come from? Who knows, but definitely seems legit and a little different than the previous two in that, well, we’re taken back in time. Also, does anyone remember Bloody Mary? Ladies and gentlemen, Paranormal Activity 3:
“We Are the Things That Were and Shall Be Again!” – Evil Dead Remake
Say it isn’t so!
SO! Wish I can say it wasn’t, but Bruce Campbell himself has confirmed the news in a Tweet in response to a question of whether or not to believe the long time rumors of another installment in the series. His response, in classic Campbell fashion, “Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.”
From the Press Release:
Sam Raimi and original producing partners Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell (who also starred in the original franchise) are gearing up to remake their cult sensation THE EVIL DEAD through their long standing Ghost House Pictures partnership. Raimi and Tapert were such instant fans of Fede Alvarez’s short film “Panic Attack” that they set up a blind deal with the filmmaker and through that process have attached Fede Alvarez to write and direct the film. Alvarez wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues. Academy Award® winning screenwriter Diablo Cody is currently doing revisions on the draft. Ghost House is committed to renewing the franchise and has the film on the fast track.
Raimi, Tapert and Campbell will serve as producers. Ghost House Pictures partners Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane will executive produce. Nicole Brown and J.R. Young will oversee the project for Ghost House. Lionsgate will handle international sales on the film.
The three producing partners commented, “We are committed to making this movie and are inspired by the enduring popularity and enthusiasm for the ‘Evil Dead’ series. We can’t wait to scare a new generation of moviegoers using filmmaking techniques that were not available to us thirty years ago as well as Fede bringing a fresh eye to the film’s original elements.”
Raimi wrote, directed and, along with Tapert and Campbell, produced the original horror classic THE EVIL DEAD that tells the story of five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival. THE EVIL DEAD spawned a franchise with the equally successful installments EVIL DEAD II and ARMY OF DARKNESS.
The good thing thus far is that Sam Raimi and Campbell will be involved in the project… that’s the good news. The bad news is that Raimi is not set to direct the film nor is Bruce Campbell to star in it but rather they are tagged on as producers! YIKES! According to the film’s director, Bruce will be making a brief cameo towards the film’s conclusion (sucks). Federico “Fede” Alvarez has been blessed/cursed to direct this new installment in the franchise which he claims to be a “quasi”-remake in an interview with El Pais. And by “quasi” I can only assume that there will be differences made from the original, specifically, as Alvarez explains that he, “will change the characters and some story details, while keeping the basic outline of friends who are beleaguered by demons in a cabin alone.” (Source – Bleeding Cool) In that case, why make an Evil Dead remake and not just a new movie in and of itself? Why not make a fourth installment instead a re-hash of the cult classic? Oy ve! (slaps forehead)
In the El Pais article, Alvarez is quoted as saying:
“Tenemos claro los errores que no hay que cometer. Como somos fans de la original sabemos en qué lugar vamos a ofender a los que también son fanáticos y en qué no los vamos a molestar, pero no podemos hacer una película solo para ellos”.
Which pretty much translates to:
“We are clear on the errors that shouldn’t be made. As we are fans of the original, we know where we’re going to offend those who are also fanatics and also understand what’s not going to bother them, but we cannot make a movie just for them.”
In his own words, we see that Alvarez and company are not really making this movie for the fans but rather for the masses which is probably an early indication that they may be targeting a clear-cut demographic, wait for it, the tweens! Of course, this is just mere speculation on my part and I could be way off, but judging from the onslaught of remakes and sequels as of late I wouldn’t be surprised. And being a fan of the Evil Dead series, this is a far scarier thought than any of the movies combined!
The notion of a fourth installment into the series excited me, but a remake, well that just pisses me off!

Stoked about this one! Here’s to lots of practical effects and less CGI! Goosebumps…
Independent Short: Annotated
Who can refuse a good, independent horror short? Especially one that is coming from fellow horror bud Joe Lopez of The TerrorScribe Blog and TerrorScribe Mafia Films. To boot, it is shot in black and white and is inspired by horror author H.P. Lovecraft. “Annotated” is an official selection of the 2011 Unnameable Blood Bath Film Festival. View the trailer below:
A rare book dealer receives a strange book with a small note that reads only, “The world must know.” As he attempts to decipher the contents, he finds himself faced with deeper and darker levels of occult knowledge that chips at his sanity.
“Annotated”, a short film of Lovecraftian horror adapted from an original story, is the first film by a dedicated collection of first-time film makers. Calling themselves “the TerrorScribe Mafia,” the group is made up of writer/director Joe Lopez, cinematographer Keith Bates, makeup effects artist Tammy Dupal and producer Stacia Langenheder.
“Annotated” is also an official selection of the 2011 Unnameable Blood Bath Film Festival which will be held August 20th at the historic Texas Theater in Dallas, Texas.

Mikey Loses Again, Takes Others Down With Him
HADDONFIELD, IL – In a fit of rage mental ward escapee, Michael Myers, lunged at a panel of judges where a local spelling bee competition for degenerates was taking place in Haddonfield High. The 54 year-old went ballistic when he understood that the word he was being asked to spell was “whore”, (W-H-O-R-E), which ignited thoughts of his deceased mother. Of course, the word was not “whore” but “horror” (H-O-R-R-O-R). Unfortunately for both Mr. Myers, and the judges, his hearing was obscured by the closed and probably rotted mask. Unfortunate for Michael because he lost his fifth straight spelling bee competition and unfortunate for the judges, well, because they’re dead.
