The Horror: John Carpenter's Halloween


Happy Halloween Peeps! Hope all of you have something groovy planned to celebrate the coolest day of the year! 

I personally love Halloween and am a huge horror movie fan, and those of you who know me, or have been paying attention, you know my favorite horror film of all time is John Carpenter's Halloween.

When it came out I was too young to attend an R-rated film by myself, so my Dad took me and some friends. It the first of many horror flicks I would go on to see in a theater. 

Can I tell you? This is the only movie of it's type that truly got under my skin and scared the shit outta me! We lived in the suburbs at the time and were surrounded by lots of trees and land and when my parents were gone and I was home alone I used to psyche myself out and see Michael Myer's ghoulish white William Shatner ass mask looming for me in the dark. Yeah, I had a really vivid imagination, still do actually. 

So how else did you think I was going to celebrate this most holy of days here on Entertain Me? With a montage of images from the film that freaked me out the most, naturally. To this day even though I am less afraid while watching Halloween, there is still something about it that really unnerves me. Beware of the Boogeyman tonight!!!

Saturday Sinema: The Initiation

Since it's the season of the witch, shall we continue our horror countdown until Halloween? I thought you would concur, here we go with gore, gore, gore!

THE INITIATION [Blu-ray(11/8)
HERE'S TO BEING YOUNG... STAYING YOUNG... AND DYING YOUNG.

Marking TV star Daphne Zuniga's debut in a leading role, The Initiation ranks amongst the finest of the college-based stalk-and-slash flicks - now finally restored in glorious High-Definition!

Kelly's new sorority has a special initiation ritual in store for her - an after-hours break-in of her father's department store. But what begins as a night of harmless college fun turns sour when, once inside the enormous mall, Kelly and her fellow pledges find themselves locked in for the night... with a deadly intruder stalking the corridors.

Arriving in 1984, The Initiation might have been late to the slasher party, but, alongside the likes of The House on Sorority Row and The Mutilator, it remains one of the stronger entries to emerge in the latter days of the slice-and-dice boom.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS

  • Brand new 2K restoration from the original camera negative
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
  • Uncompressed PCM Mono Audio

    The Horror: M.E. Franco

    Serving Jack Skellington's Head On A Plate
    Author M.E. Franco
    It's that time of the year peeps when I do my annual Halloween chat with my fellow vampire, author & horror fan M.E. Franco.

    M.E. is best known as the writer behind the series of popular supernatural novels called the Dion Series, consisting of the titles: Where Will You Run?, Where Will You Hide? and Where Will You Turn?
    Time to take a journey into the twisted mind of M.E. You have been warned...!


    MS: What's your favorite horror related erotic fantasy?
    ME: Definitely The Hunger. I'm also a fan of the Dracula movie with Frank Langella...very hot!
    MS: There is currently a clown scare going on across the United States care to weigh in?
    ME: That's just wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    MS: Freddy Kruger offers you a helping hand Pinhead offers you needlepoint, which do you choose?
    ME: Pinhead is much more fun.

    MS: Is "Release the Kraken" a euphemism? ME: It is for me. Heehee

    MS: You want to hide "Where Will You Run?"
    ME: Well, not the closet, or the basement, or the abandoned house, or the hospital, or the remote cabin, or the cemetery, or the parking garage, or the barn, or the cornfield, or the summer camp, or the farm house...

    MS: What monster would you put in the corner with "Baby" from Dirty Dancing?
    ME: A succubus...that girl could feed a whole colony of them.

    MS: Pick a succubus, the Larmia from Drag Me To Hell or Donald Trump.
    ME: The succubus isn't as creepy and the Larmia has better social skills
    MS: Someone's knocking at your door at 10 pm with a hockey mask on, what do you do?

    ME: Tell him the teenagers are next door.
    MS: Have you ever seen anything that alarmed you on the wing of a plane during a flight?
    ME: HA! Every time I fly, I use my best Shatner voice and say "Theeeeere's somethingontheplane." I won't ever look though. I don't want to know.
    MS: You could have dinner with any five horrific figures, living, dead, fictional or non- fictional who would they be?
    ME: Dracula of course (preferably Gerard Butler from Dracula 2000, yum); Pinhead (because he knows how to party), Leatherface (to carve the meat); Jigsaw (for party games); and Hannibal Lecter for his impeccable cooking and knowledge of fine wine.

    Michael's Musings

    Horny For Halloween
    Michael Shinafelt
    This week is a special edition of my column. In case you haven't figured out that means my focus will be on Halloween this coming Monday, then I have no response to that.

    Time to let loose the devil inside!

    Did you know there is a line of Halloween costumes out based on the raunchy R-rated movie Sausage Party? You too can dress as a douche and offer yourself and your services up as a treat,

    I am the terror that flaps in the night. That is all.

    Heidi Klum always rocks the best costumes. Can't wait to see what she comes up with this year. 

    No tears please, it’s a waste of good suffering.” - Pinhead, Hellraiser 

    How about that clown scare this year?

    Someone decided to make Hollywood Great again and smash Donald Trump's star on the Walk of Fame with a sledgehammer the day of Hillary Clinton's Birthday. What a nice Halloween treat, and Happy Birthday Madam President!

    If I were a witch, I would cast spells, kill people and stuff...

    "Nothing Human Loves Forever" - tag line for my favorite vampire film, The Hunger 

    Let's crack open a bottle of wine and Ouija.

    My all time favorite horror film is John Carpenter's Halloween. Only scary movie that ever really got under my skin, and, well scared the fuck outta me!

    This Halloween I plan on attending the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. The amount of alcohol consumed there both scares and impresses me.

    An Exclusive Quickie With "The Pretty Reckless"

    Their Here, They're Reckless, Get Used To It!
    Photo: Rob Fenn
    It's been a big week for The Pretty Reckless. Their album Who You Selling For came out this past Friday. The first single off of it Take Me Down is the #1 song on the Billboard Rock Chart this week! Making four number ones for the band in a row! Woot

    Frontwoman Taylor Momsen & Guitarist Ben Phillips took time out from their crazy schedule to answer five "quickie" questions for Entertain Me. Get ready to go "Reckless!" 
    MS: "Who You Selling For" definitely encompasses a lot of soul blues & rock-n-roll.  Was that an organic direction or a chosen one for the two of you?

    TPR: It's always organic.  We don't have any pre conceived notions for the music.  The inspiration of songwriting dictates the direction.  We are slaves to the muse.

    MS: You guys co-write all the songs. Give some insight to your writing process.

    TPR: It's everything and nothing.  We basically isolate ourselves and live life looking for anything that inspires us.  Writing is an all consuming mistress, it's our favorite thing to do

    I'm With The Band
    Photo: Andrew Lipovsky
    MS: Do you ever write solo or is it always a collaborative process?

    TPR: Sometimes ideas come together, sometimes we bring them to each other, there is no set method to the madness

    MS: Why the name The Pretty Reckless?

    TPR: Because The Moderately Reckless was taken ;)

    MS: If you were stranded in the forest with only three albums to listen to what would you choose?

    TPR: The White Album, Abbey Road and Revolver/Rubber Soul by The Beatles.

    The Horror: The Hunger

    Catherine Deneuve & David Bowie

    When I was sixteen it was a very good year. I landed my first job as a teenager ever, and it was my teen dream job. What was it? Working in a movie theater of course! 

    It was also the year, what would become my favorite vampire film ever came out, The Hunger. Since I worked there I got to see it for free, and that I did, five times!

    Visually and conceptually it was stunning with graphic sexuality and vampire blood letting. Catherine Deneuve was born to play the ultimate ice queen vamp, Miriam Blaylock. David Bowie was the perfect compliment are her rapidly deteriorating decades old lover John Blaylock. Then there's Susan Sarandon as Dr. Sarah Roberts who thinks death is a disease that can be cured, little does she know....

    With it's bold bi-sexuality, exploration of life & death and perfectly cast actors, this is one vampire fest blood sucking freaks should not miss!

    Only 6,6,6 more days until Halloween

    Nasty Woman: Katy Perry

    Team Nasty!
    Katy Perry & Friends
    Yes, Donald Trump, Katy Perry is too a "Nasty Woman." So much so that she hit the the campus of the University Of Las Vegas in support of Hillary "Ms. Clinton" if your nasty to rally the masses for early voting. 

    How dirty of her. Katy also showed how fully she supported Clinton by declaring herself nasty by wearing a T-Shirt with a giant red heart with the words "Nasty Woman" in it. Yep, nasty love is all the rage right now. My suspicion is we are going to get four years of it come November 8th.

    Personally I'm sold! I'll gladly take it over the pussy grabbing American Racist any day.

    Happy Monday and only one more week until Halloween!!!

    What Makes U "Say Yes"

    Look Into My Eyes & "Say Yes"
    Jason Walker
    Jason Walker & Tony Moran are "So Happy" to "Say Yes" to #1!!!

    Two-time Grammy nominated dance producer Tony Moran and Out Music Award winner Jason Walker are following up “So Happy”, their #1 Billboard hit from this summer, with a celebratory new track for fall, “Say Yes”. Written by Tony Moran and Mike Greenly, the hard-pounding single features another awe-inspiring vocal performance by Jason Walker, along with a superstar collection of remixes and a thrilling new music video by Karl Giant. “Say Yes” is available now on iTunes via http://www.mrtanmanmusic.com.

    “Tony Moran approached me about doing another track right after we finished recording ‘So Happy’, our song that would climb all the way to #1,” recalls Jason Walker from his New York home. “What else could I do but ‘Say Yes’?”

    “Mike and I were inspired to write the song from all the wedding ceremonies we’ve each been attending since the supreme court legalized same-sex marriage,” explains Tony Moran. “It’s made us reflect on the power of saying yes and how that simple three letter word can move mountains, promote progress and change life as we know it.”

    “I asked Jason to record the single for us because that magical voice of his exudes power. He’s an incredible talent and someone that I truly believe represents the future of music.”

    Moran and Walker re-enlisted videographer Karl Giant, the director of the “So Happy” video to helm "Say Yes" - check it out after the jump!

    Saturday Schwing! Kevin Bacon

    Kevin Bacon:
    The Beginning
    Tis the season so you know I had to offer up a healthy serving of bacon, the Kevin sort that is. Remember when he made his film debut in the original Friday The 13th and teased us with his speedo bulge? Then got killed for having sex with a fellow camp counselor? Of course you do.

    Kevin has bared his booty in a lot of films most notably Paul Verhoeven's horror/sci-fi thriller Hollow Man where he played an invisible dude who when he became visible, woke up, well naked, lucky film goers. Butt only booty was truly on display.

    Oh, butt (pun intended) it gets better. He kept his slab of bacon concealed for a while even though we could see it in his skimpy swimwear, tighty whities and free balling away, he finally released the Kraken aka Penis in Wild Things, one of my favorite sordid tales because of it's darkly comedic tone. Also well because KB looks great totally naked!

    The following images and text with a feast of Bacon are all courtesy of the talented and insightful Tye Briggs at Favorite Hunks & Other Things.

    Yes because of Tye I can now make your Saturdays & Sundays a total schwing fest! No need to thank me you can just...use your imagination!

    Schwing it, schwing it good!

    "Who You Selling For"

    Don't Even Think About Trying to "Take Me Down"
    Taylor Momsen
    Photo: Andrew Lipovsky
    Life can be so unfair, I have an advance copy of this album and have already given it many a listen, guess what?! It's the fucking bomb!

    The Pretty Reckless smashes it! “Take Me Down,” the first single from the album Who You Selling For, has reached #1 on the rock chart, after just 7 short weeks. This milestone marks the fourth consecutive #1 for the band who broke records as the first female-fronted band to have three chart toppers in a row with “Heaven Knows,” “Messed Up World” and “Follow Me Down” (all from 2014’s Going To Hell) - a feat that has not been accomplished since The Pretenders in 1984, over 30 years ago.

    The Pretty Reckless’s extraordinary third studio album Who You Selling For is set for release today, October 21. Produced by longtime collaborator Kato Khandwala, Who You Selling For expands the band’s sound to encompass soul, blues and rock and roll. The songs were written by front woman Taylor Momsen and guitarist Ben Phillips. Momsen’s dark lyrics and raw, charismatic vocals are on full display and the band delivers at full intensity with a level of musicianship that raises the bar.

    TPR hits the road this week in support of the album, hitting major markets in the US and wrapping on December 6th in Los Angeles.

    Michael's Musings

    Eat Your Heart Out, Madonna
    Michael Shinafelt
    It's Thursday and I'm back! It's my wrap up of random thoughts and opinions about this past week headed into the weekend.

    Brace yourself. This could be offensive depending on your level of political correctness!

    Why the F#@k should Simon Cowell have apologized for jokingly saying to openly gay TV host Rylan Clark-Neal  "I thought you liked the back door" on National TV? The only way this would be any sort of an insult is if he was a total top.  

    Can you live in only dermatology and water sports?

    Accelerate easy, break easy, like making love. That's one way of doing it I suppose.

    Tori Spelling apparently wants to give Octomom a run for her money. She is pregnant with baby number five. Six, Seven & Eight, cumming soon!

    File This Under TMI - I watch the Real Housewives of New York while sitting on the toilet.

    Street Talk: "Hunt the brown worker face." Your guess is as good as mine what that means, especially since a Latin Guy said it. 

    "For every pussy a pair of shoes will go to a child in need" - Margaret Cho, Green Tea. This should be Trump's last gasp campaign slogan. 

    How about that episode six twist on American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare last night???

    Let's Bounce!

    Law & Order: SVU still rulz after eighteen seasons.

    Turn And Face The Strange...

    Believe It, Or Not
    Justin Timberlake & Kate Winslet
    When I was younger I thought nothing could surprise me. Yeah, you think you have seen it all when you reach your twenties. Well that's a load of BS! That is one of the joys of being fifty you realize life is always evolving and there is always something that will catch you off guard that you never expected.

    This brings me to today's post. Who would have ever thought one would see Kate Winslet & Justin Timberlake acting opposite each other in a movie???

    In Woody Allen's world, which has a certain bent to it, now you will. The photo above is of the odd couple bouncing creative energy off one another while shooting Allen's latest untitled opus in Queens, New York.

    The Horror: Happy Birthday To Me


    In the 1980's there was an onslaught of slasher films thanks to the success of my favorite horror movie of all time, John Carpenter's Halloween. Most of them were pedestrian, but there were a few that were a cut above the rest. Ha ha ha ha get it? I'm sure you did, at least once, perhaps twice.

    Well Happy Birthday To Me falls into the "cut above the rest cate"gory" - puns are fun BTW

    The combination of Melissa Sue Anderson laying to rest her role as Mary Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie, J. Lee Thompson of Cape Fear (the original) fame directing and the promise of six of the most bizarre murders you will ever see, really nailed it, literally. 

    Happy Birthday To Me is one of my favorites of all time and makes today's bullshit PG-13 horror movie trend look, well, like crap. Enjoy this montage of images from it, courtesy of moi. 

     Only 13 days until Halloween

    She Wants Revenge

    Beware Of  Ear Whispering
    Lady Gaga 
    "As I whisper in your ear, I want to fucking tear you apart" - She Wants Revenge, Tear You Apart

    I have a confession to make. When I was a kid I wanted to grow-up to be a vampire, no joke, for real. My Dad and myself used to watch horror movies during the weekend on TV. Dracula has always held a deep fascination with me. That interest of course extended to any other cool vampires that I took an inkling to.

    Personally I am going out on sort of a limb here...not! That my intense interest in vamps stems from their powers being intertwined with sex and eroticism

    My favorite vampire film of all time is the late Tony Scott's The Hunger. Following a close second is season five of the TV anthology American Horror Story: Hotel.

    Lady Gaga was a kick ass mistress of the night and Matt Bomer as her paramour gave me a certain stirring in my groin. 

    Imagine my surprise when I came across a music video montage of Hotel done to one of my favorite songs ever Tear You Apart by She Wants Revenge.

    While the song was featured during season five it was used for a specific scene, this video includes several scenes from Hotel and knocks it out of the fucking park! 

    Halloween is coming lick it up, like I did after the jump!

    Saturday Schwing! Evan Peters "American Horror Story"

    Mott With A Butt
    Evan Peters
    With Evan Peters official return to season six of American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare this past Wednesday playing Edward Phillipe Mott, ancestor to the out of his mind Dandy Mott from AHS: Freak Show. It seemed like a hot/sexy/cool idea to break out his fleshy booty from AHS season two, Asylum.

    "Yes" whether you think Evan is cute or not, boy has booty, which he amply showed off in season two of American Horror Story: Asylum. One of my most favorite seasons because it was really dark & twisted and, well showed Peter's supple ass

    Undoubtedly there is going to be a season two connection here and there in the current season of AHS focusing on the lost colony of Roanoke

    In the meantime enjoy Tye Briggs un-coverage of Evan's butt cheeks on Favorite Hunks & Other Things at the NSFW link below.

    Croatoan!

    The Horror: Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho

    Who Does Your Eyebrows?
    Janet Leigh
    Leaving one of the most indelible impressions of any horror film in history Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is a classic that has endured through the generations. It has spawned three sequels, one remake and a prequel TV series, Bates Motel which is coming up on it's fifth and final season. 

    Nothing had ever been seen on the silver screen before like Janet Leigh's shower scene death as Marion Crane. Not only was it shocking in it's brutality it was the first time a protagonist had been killed off in the first thirty minutes of a movie.

    So for a Halloween treat I have decided to post a montage of images from one of my favorite horror movie deaths of all time, the "shower scene" from Psycho for you to savor. 

    T.G.I.F! 
    Help Me!
    Watch Out!
