Michael Davis: The Middleman

15 August 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Damn, it’s 1963 all over again in Missouri.

The police are using tear gas and billy clubs to control a group of peaceful protestors. All that’s missing is German Shepards and fire hoses but hey, rubber bullets more than make up for that.

I often wonder seriously, once so seriously, someone asked me to “Please stay here,” if I should take a gun and just end me before Lapd does.

The ‘here’ she was referring to was Earth.

Bet that fucked you up.

A bit over a year ago, in a restaurant two drunken white people thought they could use me as a punching bag.

They attacked me.

They hit me.

They were two, I was one.

I defended myself, they punked out.

I was the one arrested.

There is videotape evidence of my innocence.

I took a plea deal on the criminal charge.

W H Y?

Firestarter, Casper, The People Under the Stairs are Coming to Blu-ray

11 June 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

What do a pyrokinetic girl, a lonely ghost, and a group of cannibalistic children have in common? They’re all getting the Blu-ray treatment from Universal this September.

Blu-ray.com reports that Firestarter, Casper, and The People Under the Stairs are all slated for a September 2nd Blu-ray release, but only one of the films is coming with substantial bonus features:

Firestarter Release Details (via Blu-ray.com): 

Firestarter chronicles the extraordinary life of Charlene “Charlie” McGee. Eight-year-old Drew Barrymore stars as the child who has the amazing ability to start fires with just a glance.

The Blu-ray edition of Firestarter is presented in 1080p with a DTS-hd Master Audio 2.0 Mono track. An UltraViolet Digital HD digital copy of the film is included, but there are no other special features. »

How Hammer Got Its Scare Back

8 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It has been dismissed over the years as cheesy, cheap and laughable but, as has been the case on many occasions, Hammer Films have had the last laugh. They boast a back-catalogue that is to horror movies what The Rolling Stones’ discography is to rock music. Fifty-nine years after the release of their first horror movie proper (The Quatermass Xperiment), Hammer’s films have survived scrutiny and re-evaluation and have now attained National Treasure status. Moreover, in terms of sheer importance, the Hammer films were some of the most influential of the past half-century. The ripple-effect of their imitators cashing in on their success would beget the careers of some of the biggest names in Hollywood today.

And yet since 1984 Hammer has been a dormant entity, existing only in the memory: a pile of ashes, a cape and a signet ring waiting to be reanimated by the crimson, jugular discharge of some poor, »

The voices and likenesses of the current crop of WWE Superstars like John Cena, Triple H, Divas Champion Aj Lee and Santino Marella team up with Scooby and the gang in a fun throwback to the old days of The New Scooby Doo Movies, »
