The Hills Have Eyes remake

Just getting through the opening credits. The opening kill scene is brutal. I've heard alot of bad reviews for this one, but I think it will be pretty good. I'll post a review later on...

Catty Lou

My wifes Grandfather passed away Tuesday. She was quiet close to him, but she seems to be taking it well. She's now at her Mom and Dads, ready to go to the wake which starts at 2 for the family and 4 for all other visitors. (I'm going with her to the funeral tomorrow - I felt it best to let her spend time alone and grieve with her family, alone)

We've watched a few comedies to try and lighten the mood around the homsestead, and I've been putting on my crazy hat to try and bring out that gorgous smile she has. I succeeded a few times, but made an ass out of myself on occasion.

One of the movies we decided to watch was The Cable Guy with Jim Carey. This movie gets alot of mixed reviews, but I think its a work of black comedic genius. Ben Stiller is truly a good director, but Carey and Broderick just play so well off each other. There's nods to numerous films throughout the whole film, but are made very subtle by the seemingly normal cycle of happenstance that seems to occur every few minutes or so.
Carey played to a tee a deranged cable guy with a lisp. It must have been hard to keep the same persona, and, especially the lisp throughout the entire film. To me, that takes talent, although, there's some people who think Carey is a talentless hack.
Nevertheless, TCG has now officially entered my top 40 list, alonside another Carey film, Dumb and Dumber.
Sometimes, I just need to steer clear from horror-land for a few days, to give my mind time to conceive the fact that there's other forms of cinematic entertainment besides someone getting their face cut off with fishing line. I've been trying to broaden my specs and my wife has been the main ring leader. I've watched alot of films lately that I would have never bought, but I'm glad 'Cat' has a sense of cinematic taste that even remotely fits mine. My last girlfriend (before marrying 'Cat') had no sense of cinematic charisma. She didn't know a good movie if it hit her square in her face, but Cat, she has some great choices for viewings.
Take for instance the 1994 film Legends of the Fall, with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins - I NEVER would have bought a movie like that a year ago, but now, I'd even pick up Titanic if I found it at a convienent place and especially a convienent price.
Anyway, Thanks Babe. Now, I can enjoy a whole new world of cinematic ventures. Maybe, after going through all the drama and action sections, she'll introduce me to the porno genre. Just kidding, hun.

Rob Zombie and Halloween 9

It's probably old news to everyone by now, but Rob Zombie was officially greenlighted to write and direct the next Halloween installment. I've got alot of mixed answers when asking people how they feel. Alot of people have never really forgiven Zombie for his first lucid nightmare House of a Thousand Corpses. I, for one, enjoyed the film quiet a bit, albeit all the cinematic and color mistakes throughout.
What I do know is that Zombie learned from his mistakes, as stateted by himself, and gave us a riveting, disturbing tale of disturbing family ties with The Devil's Rejects - A beautifully shot film, with great acting, without all those fast cut to's and cut aways, lacking that annoying psychadelic nusance from House of a Thousand Corpses.
What doI think? Well, I just gotta say that I've got GREAT faith in Zombie. The guys knows what it is fans want. He knew what they wanted in the first place, but being a novice behind the camera, it just didn't transmit all that well with House. Zombie uberly redeemed himself with Rejects and I totally believe that he'll give us a wonderful layout when it comes to Halloween 9.
I think alot of people will be eating their words - and - don't be surprised if we don't see Jamie Lee somewhere in the midst.I'm looking for Zombie to get an even greater budget than his 6 million for Rejects (which by Hollywood standards is pennies)- We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, you can keep keep tabs by visiting the official Halloween Films site.

Overlooking the ...

Well, well, it's been a while since I've updated. I'm very sorry and by-god this one goes out to my nine regular visitors. There's no real reason I haven't posted in a while. Well, there's one, but involves a weedeater and a pair of golf shoes. I won't get into that, but if you're in the mood for ice cream, I could tell you about the time I shit my pants. Maybe next post?

Anyway, I'm just going to ramble a bit. Much-a-do about nothing much. I was watching Joyride the other day. The one with the Fast and the Furious guy...anyway, I noticed that he and his brother's name are Louis and Fuller. I never really paid any attention to this, but Louis Fuller was Lucio Fulci's American pseudonym. I thought that was a very cool hat tip to the Godfather of Gore.

I was also watching The Cable Guy with my wife over the weekend. Again, I never really paid any attention, but there's a nod to a seminal Canadian sleeper called Black Christmas. When Chip has Stephen locked up, he visits him in jail via telephone through the bullet proof glass. I'll not go into detail, but for you fans of Black Christmas, you'll pick it up right away.

Anyway, I found these things kind of cool and thought I'd toss them up.

Teaser

I suppose all the masses out there would like to know a little more about me. Too bad. All I can say is that I'm a sometimes happily married man who thinks the world is governed by an elect few, who, behind the scenes, dictate world events with a numerical basis, to eventually spring forth a one world religion, alongside a World Wide Totalitarian Government. In other words, the NWO. No, Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall won't be riding horses of death throughout the land, claiming life by sword and shoe polish beards - They'll be no Jim Ross in the background saying "It's the Antichrist! It's the Antichrist! It's the Antichrist!", repeatedly just before the show ends.
It's more real than that folks. I sometimes feel as if it's my duty to share as much as my knowled of how things really work as I possibly can. I'm not a humanitarian by any means, but I do care (maybe even unconsciously) for my fellow man, so, why not at least try and warn them of the upcoming events even tho they call us mad screaming lunatics who haven't came off a good pot buzz. It's ok, because for the twenty who think we're crazy, they'll be two or three that actually want to learn more, and realize for themselves that everything isn't just one big coincidence -
Ever heard of The Freemasons? I'm sure after watching National Treasure a hundred times that you realize that this is actually a true group. A very old group. Anyone can learn more about Freemasonry, but to actually be a Freemason is another story. Just what is Freemasonry? I'm not even going to try and explain, because I'd be here all night - I'm saving all my knowledge for a book btw, so, I have an excuse.
I'm sure if you're familiar with the Govenator or George W Bush, you'll know they were members of groups, one being called Bohemian Grove in which Arnie was a member, and the other is Skull and Bones - George W's old Frat club, as well as his Fathers. These groups go further than just college years and offbeat shennigens. These groups consist of a powerful bunch of people. Not just anyone can get into these groups and almost all of them are Freemasons.
Anyway, I'm stopping right here, hopefully, to tease you a little, so you, yourself, will do some research on the subject and find out the truth about The United States, Washingtons love for the Egyptian Obelisk, and the all seeing eye on the back of the dollar bill.

Do a goggle on some of these terms:

Freemasons/Freemasonry
Washington Egypt Mystery Religions
Illuminati 9 11
Illuminati Antichrist
Ufo's Antichrist Illuminati Jesus

The Prowler


I just picked this dvd up at Sam Goody this evening on a monthly shopping binge. I had seen it before, but I'm trying to up my dvd collection, so I thought I'd pick it up - even at the slightly high price of sixteen bucks.
Anyway, Joseph Zito (Director/Friday the 13th 4) does something different. Instead of your summer camp slayings, we get a My Bloody Valentine-esque venture, reguarding a party being held thirty some odd years after a double murder in 1945.
As I mentioned, a great double impalement by pitchfork, (by the hands of nonother than Tom Savini) follows a Dear John letter from a woman named Rosemary to her boyfriend who was across seas in WWII. It seems as if she just can't wait for him any longer, but still worries about him. I guess boyfriend has a hard time facing rejection.
We go down the road about thirty years where a small town is planning a dance. I 'm not sure what the dance was for (as I was distracted by my wife in a bathing suit at some points during the film), but it kind of reminded me of its distant cousin My Bloody Valentine.
To make a long story short, it seems as if the killer is either back, or someone just likes going around slicing and dicing the locals out of boredom.
We get some great special F/x from the maestro Tom Savini. The dvd has a few cool extras - a cool commentary and some behind the scenes footage filmed by Savini himself.
This is probably one of the most brutal slasher attempts I've seen in a long time. I imagine that this is the uncut version, as the camera lingers for long periods of time as the killers sharp instruments gourges and probes ita victims. Some scenes are quiet disturbing. If you like My Bloody Valentine, you any slasher film fan should find themselves enjoying the hell out of this one. Good acting. Great score. Even Great special f/x. Great kill and chase scenes. One good slasher flick I must say.

Wouldn't You Know It

Every once in while, I like to sift through all the blood and guts and try and grasp hope through all the swishy stuff. But sadly, I find very little hope. Being 'political' is something I don't claim to be. In fact, hardly anyone knows of my love for politics, or better yet, what makes it all work. I don't guess it's as much me being in love with politics in general, but the mystique behind the people who make up our worldy political arena.
I got to thinking, since my url is called Antichrist Follies, why not post something in reguards to 'the' antichrist, if a bit loosely.
I'm sure that if you're reading this, you've either seen The Omen, or have at least heard of it. Of course, it's about a little boy named Damien, who incidently has the numbers 666 (the Biblical mark of the beast) imbedded into his scalp. Needless to say, the evil looking English-boy had quiet a few powers that silently enabled him to do away with certain people. As the sequels went on, it depicted Damien growing up, later going to military school where he learns his role and accepts it. It's all just a movie, sure, but ever who wrote the film (maybe a book first, I'm not sure) had some Biblical background floating around.
Stepping aside from the film, let's talk of the potential for a real antichrist. We can imagine what 'the antichrist' will look like. Some of us think of Adolf Hitler when we hear the word antichrist. Other's ironically think of a man of peace, embracing the whole world. Symbolically, this much could be true, but identifying the antichrist isn't something that can be done until it's too late.
I've heard many idiots stating that George Bush is the antichrist. These people have obviously never even heard of Revelations - (There's no way I can quote the Bible word for word, so I'm not even going to try) It states something to the effect that this antichrist will come as a man of peace, and that the whole world will wonder after him. This pretty much rules George W out. Over half the world despises GWB, most of them right in his own country.
This man is also going to have great charisma. In the book of Isaiah, it refers to the antichrist as being stouter (stronger) than the normal man. This also knock Bush out of the water, along with half the people everyone consider to be the antichrist. Now, what we have is a very well built, big-muscular man, with great charisma - Probably a very handsome man. Remember folks, the antichrist is the devil in the flesh. He's not going to pick a body of an old ugly, decrepid man. Many think the antichrist is the pope, and that the Catholic Church is 'the beast' - To a certain extent, this is true, because religion is going to play a major part in the transformation to a one world government that's right around the corner. Afterall, Catholosism does mean Unity. If anything, the Pope 'could' be the False witness referred to in Revelations.
Now, before I go any further, and I delve into some potential prospects for the antichrist, let me shed some light on the goal of the antichrist and what he hopes to accomplish. First of all, the antichrist wants complete control over the world and its assetts. He wants complete control over all monetary transactions. He wants a one world currceny (probably with his face on it) in which all the world money will flow through one big world bank. He wants control over what you eat, the drugs/medicines you put into your body - So, where does the mark of the beast come into play? It's already here. I'ts a tracking device imbedded under the skin of cattle to monitor them. It's only a matter of years before this starts happeing to humans. Well, they just want to do this to keep track of terrorists! That's conspiracy bullshit! First, yeah, it will probably be brought about after some major catastrophe in the name of the aforementioned event. It's going to seem harmless, and after the world is shocked and dazed, just like cattle (how ironic), we'll accept it willingly and out of panic. Sounds bad, but could be worse, right? Well, yeah, but it gets worse. Worse. Much worse. Probably a Global economic collapse which will kill millions by famine.
The man behind the upheavel in the first place will be the man who steps up and suddenly has the answers to everything. He's going to have the ability to simultaneously speak more than one language. He's going to have such a presence, that the Bible says that "He'll fool even the very elect" - Which means die hard Christian believers will be duped by his lying powers and the forces that guide him. The chip will be implanted under man, woman and child alike. The chip will be placed in the right hand, or forehead and is pretty much like being scanned at the grocery scanner you see at Wal-Mart. Instead of getting a paycheck when you work, all your money will be placed in the form of digits, just like a credit card under the skin. The only way to not die is to accept this chip/mark, because there's no paper money anymore. There's no possible way to legally buy anything unless you use the devils currecny, which is ultimately the chip under your skin.
To shorten this post a bit, I'll rev about who some potential prospects for the antichrist could be in my next post.
