Danielle Harris did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and the Halloween Scream Queen did it completely nude. She did it in her birthday suit to get her message out there. What it is was only revealed after General Hospital’s Kimberly McCullough poured the ice water on her.

Thirty-five years ago Halloween was forever changed thanks to man by the name of Michael Myers. To celebrate his anniversary Anchor Bay released a special anniversary Blu-ray edition with never before seen features that available for you to own now.
The scary tale has been transferred to HD with the help of from the movie’s cinematographer, Dean Cundey. Along with the visual update director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis lent their voices for a brand new audio commentary track. Curtis also participates in an hour-long featurette where you get to really know her as she meets some of Laurie Strode’s biggest fans. She lets the cameras in and we get to see what finally got her to attend the function, personal stories from her life after Halloween and her interaction with the fans. One of the most fascinating reveals is that she is not a fan of horror movies even though her mom and her such a big part of the genre.
The special features also include an on-location feature for the 20th anniversary and you hear why they chose the locations that they did. We get a tour of the Haddonfield, Illinois that really is in Pasadena, Ca and West Hollywood.
The original trailer and radio spots are included. After you select those special features you will be surprised the movie did as well as it did. Unlike today trailers, the movie is so much better than the trailer.
Finally if this is not enough for you, the Blu-ray comes with limited-edition book-style package (available only for the first printing) with 20 pages featuring archival photos, an essay by Halloween historian Stef Hutchinson and specially commissioned cover art by Jay Shaw.
This is a must own for any fan of the Halloween franchise, so what are you waiting for? Run out and get it while supplies last.
Rob Zombie the horror movie director and writer who brought us House of a 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and the first two Halloween remake films to name a few is cleaning up his act because he did a commercial for Woolite. When I read that he was doing an ad for a detergent, for some reason I thought it was going to be all happy and colorful like all the others, but what I saw was a beautiful nightmare come true. Seriously that is one of the most brilliant commercials I have ever seen! He needs to win the Cleo for it because it is so spot on.
The only problem I have with the advertisement is that when I came up with ads like that in college my teachers told me I would never make it in Advertising. I guess that is why “they say those who can do and those who can’t teach!”
Halloween 2 just came out in theaters this weekend, and there is already talks of a third one in development according to the LA Times. The Weinstein Company’s co-Chairman Bob Weinstein told the paper they are planning on releasing Halloween 3D next summer. 3D has proven to give movies a box office lift, and after seeing The Final Destination in 3D it is an awesome effect that really changes the feel of a horror movie in a good terrifying way. So I am really looking forward to see Michael Meyers do it once again, just hopefully it will be a sh!tload better than the first time they did. G-d Halloween 3 sucked big time, one of the worst movies ever made.
Now back to the new one that is coming out next year, Bob Weinstein confirmed what Rob Zombie hinted at the H2 press day roundtable I was at, that he will not be back to direct it. A new director, yet to be named will be taking over the franchise and taking it in a different direction than Zombie. It will be interesting to see if that director will use the cast members, who did express interest to us at that roundtable in returning if there was a third one. Scout Taylor-Compton told us she would be down for it because she feels there is more she can do with Laurie Strode. Tyler Mane, who plays Michael Meyers told us he was signed on for the first two of them and was not sure if he would come back for a third, so it will be interesting to see if he will be back to wear mask. One actor’s return that might be difficult to explain after how the second one ended, who also said he would be back is Malcolm McDowell who played Dr Loomis. He told us, when I asked if he thought he would be back for the second one after how it ended for him in the first one, â€œOf course! Iâ€™ll be back for the third one. Even though I know I lost my head.â€ So I said, â€œhey thereâ€™s plastic surgery nowâ€, and he said matter-of-factly, â€œWho cares, itâ€™s not real.â€ It will be fun to see if they can find a way to bring it back and if so how!!! Seriously I can’t wait to see wait to see what they do with Halloween 3D when it comes out next summer!
It is very rare these days that there are three good movies out there to see at the same time and this weekend that was just the case! The Final Destination, Inglourious Basterds and Halloween 2 were the top 3 movies for the weekend according to the LA Times. Warner Bros’ FD4 brought in $28.3 million whose total was aided by being screened in 3D in over half the theaters it was shown in. Not far behind were The Weinstein Company’s Inglourious Basterds that added $20 million to its total of $73.8 million domestically and Rob Zombie’s H2 made $17.4 million which was over $2 million more than it cost to make it. Not bad at all!
Seriously all three movies are must-sees, so if you haven’t seen any of the three yet go out on this hot day and enjoy watching them in air conditionered theater!!! What better way to spend a hot day then with a really enjoyable flick!
