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.

SPIKE TV AND TOTAL NONSTOP ACTION (TNA) WRESTLING RELAUNCH FLAGSHIP PROGRAM AS ‘IMPACT WRESTLING’

Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling and Spike TV announced today that TNA’s flagship program would be rebranded as IMPACT WRESTLING, beginning Thursday, May 19 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on SPIKE.

With the debut of “TNA iMPACT!” in 2005, TNA and SPIKE have partnered to bring U.S. television audiences the most exciting professional wrestling in the world today. TNA iMPACT! has been averaging 1.8 million viewers this year and ranks among the top programs on cable with Men 18-34 and Men 18-49 in its timeslot. In 2011, TNA is up 11% in HH rating vs.Q1 2010 and 9% in viewership of persons 2+.

“While the name change is subtle, it is also very powerful. TNA is proud to be in the wrestling business, and not afraid to say it. And, to emphasize our commitment we have added the word ‘wrestling’ to our already well-known ‘iMPACT!’ brand,” said  TNA chief marketing officer Al Ovadia.

In addition to rebranding IMPACT WRESTLING, TNA is launching the tagline, “WRESTLING MATTERS,” a statement that reflects every aspect of TNA Wrestling, from program content to marketing to live events.

“We wanted a branding initiative that was scalable and could extend across all platforms,” added Ovadia. “We asked our fans what it was about professional wrestling that they found most compelling. We learned it was no single aspect, their passion for wrestling was all-consuming. Whether it’s the in-ring action, backstage brawls, the feuds or classic dramatic conflict of good vs. evil, it’s the entire experience that makes ‘wrestling matter.’”

“TNA is a proven ratings winner on Thursday nights for Spike, delivering a consistently large audience of hard-to-reach young men,” said Brian J. Diamond, senior vice president, sports and specials, Spike TV. “We feel the new IMPACT WRESTLING branding message will resonate with our audience who crave the action-packed wrestling that only TNA can provide.”

Effective immediately fans can visit www.IMPACTWRESTLING.com for exclusive news and content on the stars of IMPACT WRESTLING. Fans can also access over 300 hours of TNA programming at www.TNAOnDemand.com.

I’m not for a name change after 9 years with the TNA name. But if it helps the company grow then I’m all for it.

And I am all for the new tagline, “Wrestling Matters Here.”

This is what you’ll read on every wrestling news sites. – Mick Foley, who was revealed as the Network Consultant Thursday night on Spike TV, announced during the telecast that the show is being renamed iMPACT! Wrestling. He added that it’s a show “about wrestling.”

To reflect the name change, TNA Wrestling re-designed their official website with new graphics and the tagline, “Wrestling Matters Here.” The domain name ImpactWrestling.com was also activated, although it redirects to TNAWrestling.com.
