Giant Freddy Glove

Mark Phillips, who runs prop-making company Nightmares Unlimited, made a four-foot tall/long version of Freddy Krueger’s famous blade-fingered glove, which will be featured at the upcoming ScareFest as part of a special photo-op with Robert Englund (aka, Freddy), running September 29th through October 1st in Lexington, KY. Fewer things in life are as cool.

I’ll tell you what’s not cool, though — proctology exams that feel like the doctor is wearing a four-foot tall/long version of Freddy Krueger’s famous blade-fingered glove.

And speaking of ridiculously uncomfortable experiences, here are a few upcoming horror and movies that may or may not make you feel like you’re being double-parked by a really mean sock puppet…

Witch Hunt

WITCH HUNT (available now)
“A Catholic priest questions his faith after a botched exorcism. An unknown association hires a brother/sister team of Bosnian witch hunters/inquisitors to exterminate the ‘problems’ the town has been experiencing.”

Catholic priests should really look into outsourcing as they don’t have too good a track record for demonic purging. Heck, I’ll do it for slightly less than the going rate. E-mail me for a obligation-free price quote.

The Houses October Built 2

THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT 2 (September 22, 2017)
“The new pic picks up the five haunted-house enthusiast friends still trying to recover from the trauma of being kidnapped last Halloween by the Blue Skeleton — a group who takes ‘extreme haunt’ to another level. They decide to face their fears in order to move on and go back out on the road to find more haunted houses, but signs of the Blue Skeleton start appearing again.”

Got bored with the first one (it came out in 2014) and only watched 20 minutes of it. So with the release of the sequel, I’ll get advice from my life coach as to whether or not to go back and watch the remaining 71.

Boo! Two

BOO! TWO — A MADEA HALLOWEEN (October 20, 2017)
Madea, Bam, and Hattie venture to a haunted campground and the group must literally run for their lives when monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman are unleashed.”

Is it just me or does Madea look like a dude dressed up as a woman? While I let that roll around in the gumball machine that is my head, full disclosure: I never saw Boo! (2016), either. Unless it’s Bruce Campbell, I’m not a fan of slapstick horror. (I’m looking in your direction, Fear of the Walking Dead.)

Fang

FANG (in production)
“After participating in a robbery-turned-murder, Chloe and Joe decided to hide out at a distant relative’s house only to find themselves stalked and hunted by creatures and forces unknown.”

The creatures are not unknown as they put ‘em right on the key art — they’re WEREWOLVES! About time, as we’ve been overdue for a good werewolf romp. Until this one gets here, try Howl (2015). In that one a rural bound British commuter train is beset (sorry — word of the day calendar) upon by fuzzy monsters that turn the stalled train’s passengers into buttsteak and kidney pies.

Satan Whisperer, Serial Killer Swimming Lessons, Crime Ducks

Devil's Whisper

Really sucks that YouTube™ makes you pay to remove commercials before and during important and TRUE video footage of UFOs (or “flying saucers.”) And to make matters worse, they cram in as many commercials as they can. So now you have to pay to NOT watch commercials. This is the kind of jerk future that was not foretold in Dune (1984). That future, with giant sand worms, looks cool. This future just outright sucks a**.

Speaking of sucking a**, here are a few upcoming horror/sci-fi movies that may or may not do that particular thing and will hopefully not have commercials…

DEVIL’S WHISPER (June 10, 2017)
“Inspired by true events, a 15 year-old aspires to be a Catholic priest. When he discovers a mysterious box passed down from his grandparents, he unwittingly unleashes a demonic spirit bent on possessing him — and must find a way to defeat the demon, which has been tormenting children since the dawn of man, before it destroys him and everyone he loves.”

Sounds like Pennywise and/or Freddy Krueger, but with more Hell stuff. It’s not my bag, but anyone who aspires to be a Catholic priest obviously wants to do good in this world. But by becoming one, the occupational hazard is that demons are gonna be your worst clients.

Death Pool

DEATH POOL (June 20, 2017)
“After nearly drowning at the hands of his babysitter, a troubled young man grows up to become a serial killer with a compulsion to drown young beautiful women. Based on true events, this conniving killer becomes a cultural phenomenon, known throughout the streets of Los Angeles.”

A reverse lifeguard giving hot chicks lessons on how not to swim. Could be worse — the killer could be a duck.

The Quacky Slasher

THE QUACKY SLASHER (2017)
“The Quacky Slasher is Michael Quackers, a man traumatized by events from his childhood, takes on the persona of a vigilante duck, to strike fear into the criminal underbelly of his home town”

A vigilante duck? And just when you think you’ve seen everything. Of course, if you’ve seen Howard The Duck (1986), this one won’t be all it’s quacked up to be.

The Nightmare Gallery

THE NIGHTMARE GALLERY (pending crowd-funding)
Dr. Samantha Rand is an anthropology professor whose life is turned upside-down by the sudden, suspicious disappearance of her star pupil. But when a package of paranormal artifacts arrives on Rand’s doorstep three years later, she embarks on a nightmarish journey into mystery that will shake her and her wife to their cores. Through a terrifying, Lynchian lens, the film follows Professor Rand’s horrifying loss of self in pursuit of an extra-dimensional truth that could doom the world.”

I thought the world was already doomed. And what of this “paranormal package”? Was it delivered by Amazon™? If so, that means it was left upside down on your doorstep, your signature forged and the contents therein packaged like carton-less eggs?
