I’m a huge fan of 70’s and 80’s horror movies and I still run across the occasional retro flick I haven’t seen. Recently I came upon a great forgotten slasher gem called Night School starring the very beautiful Rachel Ward. Someone is beheading women and leaving their heads in some strange places. A detective assigned to the case soon finds a link between the victims, they all attended night school at a local girls college. Suspicion falls upon a college professor who apparently spends all his spare time having affairs with as many students as possible. He’s also diddling his research assistant played by Rachel Ward. The story takes some twists and turns and has some amazing kill scenes. You’ll probably see the twist ending coming long before its revealed but its still well worth your time.

So Bloody Disgusting.com has released a Spanish language film called Atrocious. I’d heard some good things about it and was more than a little interested in seeing it. BD has a bit of a reputation as one of the best sites for horror movie news so if they are getting behind this film is must be something cool right? No, not so much. Atrocious is a boring Blair Witch knock off with less woods and more house with a big twist ending that when finally revealed will make you say: “oh, that’s kinda neat I guess..”

This week I went back and looked at this concept again and really liked it! In fact its one of my favorites from the last year. So instead of scrapping it I'm doing a special discounted package for this piece of art that will go to the first haunt that contacts me about it. The art is ready to go all we have to do yet is make the site template and flash header. This Special Brain Chomping Zombie Package includes the following: - Full lifetime license on the Haunted house...

Today you are likely seeing a lot of messages on your favorite sites that are denouncing a bill in Congress called SOPA or the "Stop Online Piracy Act". I get that most people don't know or care a bit about this issue and just want Wikipedia to be back up. But Wikipedia, like many other sites today, is trying to impress on the public what could happen under this act. The people behind this bill are the record companies and movie studios and they want the power to basically make a website disappear from the internet if they infringe on their copyrights. Now I am not for Piracy but this bill is like taking a hatchet where a scalpel should be used. For example lets say you post photos on Flickr and use it all the time, like me. Then some jerk off puts...
