Carrie

Did you happen to see the 2013 re-boot of Carrie starring Chloë Grace Moretz as the telekinetic troubled teen who uses her mind powers to burn down her high school, thereby frying to a golden crisp everybody in it? I’m here to ruin your day – you didn’t see all of it. Ha! There was 40+ minutes cut, most of which played out Carrie’s destruction in more graphic detail.

According to Petitionbuzz.com, fans of the movie have rallied and are demanding the Blu-ray and DVD have the entire movie reinstated, with all the deleted and cut scenes put back where they belong.

Here is the fans’ opening salvo…

TO: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Sony Pictures, Screen Gems, 20th Century Fox, and Misher Films:

This petition is for those avid Carrie fans who hope to see an Extended Director’s Cut of Carrie released on DVD and Blu-ray. It has come to the attention of fans that there were many scenes filmed, but later dropped from the theatrical cut – many of which were also, unfortunately, not included in the Deleted/Alternate scenes on the Blu-ray release.

Back in December 2012, there were a number of people who attended the first test screenings of the film and confirmed that the original cut was longer and a lot different from what we saw in theaters. Based on fan speculation, feedback from Test-Audiences, and certain confirmed details concerning the film – the deleted and/or extended scenes include…

Sex Monster and Barnyard Horror

It Follows

A couple of upcoming new ones that look old. But they’re not. They’re new. For reals.

First up is It Follows, due out March 13, 2015, probably before lunch, but definitely after breakfast. It involves a young girl who is plagued by nightmarish visions after an “innocent sexual encounter” in the back seat of a car.

OK, no sexual encounters are innocent. That’s what organized religion tries to drill into our horn dog brains. Secondly, who hasn’t had nightmarish visions after hooking up? Think Lair of the White Worm (1988) and go from there.

ANYWAY…after said hook up, 19-year-old Jay (chick with a dude’s name) can’t shake the sensation that someone – or something – is following her. As the threat closes in, Jay and her friends must somehow escape the horrors that are only a few steps behind.

I bet it’s organized religion.

The Barn

An old school treatment for The Barn arrives October 1, 2015 in the form of some of those cool illustrated ’80s style horror movie posters. And the plot feels right out of that era as well. Behold…

“It’s Halloween 1989. Best friends Sam and Josh are trying to enjoy what’s left of their final Devil’s Night before graduating high school. But trouble arises when the two pals and a group of friends take a detour on their way to a rock concert, finding an old abandoned barn and awakening the evil inside.

Now it’s up to Sam and Josh to find a way to protect their friends and defeat the creatures that lurk within “The Barn.”

One can barely imagine the horrible creatures in a barn: pigs, horses, cows, rats, bugs, snakes, spiders, poisonous squirrels, stink beetles, electric eels…

Could this be the Old MacDonald version of Night of the Demons (1988)? I will ponder that over a nice breakfast of barn eggs, barn sausage and horse apples. OK, probably not that last one.
