Season of the Witch: Halloween III

Posted in HalloweeN, Horror, Movies, Opinion with tags , , , , , on October 23, 2011 by ScarecrowBlog

Yup, I am talking about HalloweeN III, the black sheep of the franchise.  Since the time of its release, fans have shunned this entry.  Up until recently, I hardly ever watched it. I must admit, I never hated the movie. Continue reading

Decisions, Decisions. Trying to figure out a theme.

Posted in Opinion on October 20, 2011 by ScarecrowBlog

Just trying to pick a theme for my blog. Something that has a little personality, is a little warmer, and seems a little less generic. Bare with me.

Dexter and True Blood. Since I’ve never seen any episodes, are they worth checking out?

Posted in Horror, Television with tags , on October 19, 2011 by ScarecrowBlog

I have never seen True Blood or Dexter, and I know very little about either of these shows. Supposedly, Dexter is about a serial killer and True Blood is about vampires (featuring Rogue from X-Men). That encompasses my knowledge of these two shows. My question is, are they worth looking into?

The Walking Dead Season 2

Posted in Horror, Opinion, Television with tags , , on October 18, 2011 by ScarecrowBlog

All I can say is, The Walking Dead has definitely not dropped the ball. Season two began very strong. I love this show, very well done.

My only problem with the show, where the hell is Michael Rooker? Please bring him back soon, and not for just one episode.

All Good “Things”…

June 25, 1982 was the date that John Carpenter’s The Thing came out, I was seven years old, far too young to have been able to see The Thing in the theater. I do however, remember going to the theater to see E.T., which had been released June 11, 1982. As it turned out, the masses embraced E.T. and were caught off guard two weeks later when The Thing came out. This alien was not about to use a Speak and Spell to phone home. Funny, I think that The Thing had a better and longer lasting effect on me. It probably was a good thing that I didn’t see it back then, considering the damage that Alien and Aliens did. I am referring to a few months of nightmares, thanks dad. Just kidding.

My father seems to think that the Hawks version called, The Thing From Another World is better than the John Carpenter film. I will argue with him incessantly that the “Frankenstein Carrot Man From Space, On Ice” film can not hold a candle to the masterpiece that is Carpenter’s The Thing. Continue reading

Triple Threat

Posted in Horror, Movies, Sci Fi with tags , , on October 16, 2011 by ScarecrowBlog

Alien and Predator are two of the most popular Science Fiction extra terrestrial life forms. Both have very successful franchises and even have crossed paths as enemies in video games, books/comics, and movies. That being said, the equation seems off. Something is missing. Continue reading
