Real Life

There is a particular reason that this post is entitled “Real Life.”

Most of the things that get posted here are mostly to update people on things that Kristina has written.  However, on Sunday night she had to take her oldest to the hospital in regards to his ‘special needs’ related problems.  He has been hospitalized for evaluation and on behalf of the Thrillerz 13/Blood Reign staff she has asked us to  pass along her thanks for the well wishes and prayers from friends and co-workers of the Christian Coalition Against Gang Violence.

This is a very trying time for her and she is trying to get things back on track.

True Tuesday “Chernobyl Diaries”

Oren Peli takes the real life disaster of the Chernobyl explosion and combines it with the what if of an Urban Legend in “Chernobyl Diaries.”

Today’s True Tuesday examines the horrifying true life events with the mind blowing twist ending Peli created.

Supernatural Saturday Night “Faces of Fear: Kruger”

“Here’s Freddy!”

 

In 1984 Wes Craven created the legendary vehicle that launched Robert Englund’s career.

Supernatural Sat Night is live

Tonight I wrap up reviewing Wes Craven’s Scream franchise with Scream 4.  Wes Craven takes a morbid tongue in cheek look at the remake craze in the horror genre.  Craven has spawned many iconic pop culture lines and its my opinion that Scream 4 drops “What’s your favorite scary movie,” in favor of Sydney’s line in the climax, “You forgot the first rule of a remake don’t f$^k with the original!”

Scream 4 is right up with Scream 1, the original Nightmare, the original Halloween, and The Fog as some of my all time favorite horror movies.  Scream 4 is definitely one of the best movies Craven has to offer.

Sunday Spotlight

Sunday Spotlight is a head of schedule and issues in a variation on the sequels series currently being reviewed by Kristina Stancil. You can not do a series on remakes without touching on a classic iconic horror franchise. As Scream 4 wraps up the Scream series Sunday Spotlight issues in yet another masterpiece of Wes Craven by taking on Freddy Krueger.
