Jeepers Creepers & Killer Klowns from Outer Space Blu-ray Debut on 9-11-12

Jeepers Creepers is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. Great to see it gets a Blu-ray release.

Not big on the art work. Too thrown together. But over all, better than the DVD cover.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space is a cult classic. This horror comedy is cheesy all the way and yet I still find it funny and enjoyable.

Artwork for it is FANTASTIC!!! One of the best covers I’ve ever seen.

Is Horror Dead?

Is horror dead?

This has bothered me for a while now. I love the horror genre but I find it lacking on creativity and freshness as of late.

I can’t be the only one that thinks the horror genre is pretty much dead. Was dying in the 70s, John Carpenter brought it back with Halloween. Which is one of my favorite movies, not just in horror. In the 90s, horror was just about dead again. It needed something. A man by the name of Wes Craven came along with Scream and horror was back.

Scream had a lot of success. And gave other horror films after that success as well. But that was 16 years ago.  And Hollywood has given up on original ideas. Sequels and remakes are all that get the green light. That needs to stop. And straight-to-DVD needs to stop. Theatrical horror needs to come back and fast.

New slasher icons for the younger generation. Not just dusting off classic faces. Leave our loved killers alone. They had a good run. Several runs in fact. And yes, I love those classic icons. But you can’t learn to really cherish them if they’re never gone.

Sorry for this random post. I just feel like it needed to be said.

We need something badly.
