It’s October, and that means Graphic Horror
It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to watch a full movie that I intended to review for this site here so I wanted to spend a quick moment to give an update to you on what I’ve been doing lately and what I hope to be doing here in this coming month where nearly everyone starts bringing out the horror movies from now until Halloween, and I’m no different. I’m not quite sure how many movies I’ll be able to get in this month, but I plan on adding at least four films to my graphic horror tag for films based on horror comics, plus the usual two episodes of Filmwhys that aren’t specifically horror related, the next of which has already been recorded and will be posted on Monday as usual. I also have had the chance to appear on a couple podcasts in the past few weeks so I thought I’d share those here as well.
First off, I do want to mention a couple podcasts that I’ve been on lately. I have once again appeared on the Lambcast where I drafted a team of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time in their Sci-Fi movie draft. My team was chosen through a completely scientific method where I chose a film from several different categories of sci-fi to get the most well rounded team. My team consisted of: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Back to the Future, Metropolis, Twelve Monkeys, and Snowpiercer. The poll is currently still open, though it will probably close soon so go vote now! (poll is in the sidebar). I was also on a couple weeks back to talk about my first time watching Edgar Wright’s The World’s End which completes my watching of his Cornetto trilogy, Hot Fuzz still being my favorite of the three.
Second, I was a recent guest on the Lair of the Unwanted over at the soon-to-be-closing Your Face! where we discussed the start of the Troma film empire The Toxic Avenger, and I took on the Game of the Unwanted like a champ! Their podcast isn’t going anywhere, but their written reviews will be drawing to a close over at Your Face! So be sure to stop by there and send them your love, they’re all great guys.
Third, it’s the start of the new Fall season of television over at Channel: Superhero and I’m covering a ton of shows over there. Be sure to visit for my coverage of Gotham, Vixen, Heroes Reborn, and the Flash starting next week. Not to mention that we are doing 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt all this month! Every day we are checking out a different episode of the HBO series Tales From the Crypt. We’ve got a whole bunch of different bloggers joining in, and there’s still a couple spots left if you would like to join in, so be sure to check it out!
And finally, over here I plan on continuing my recent tradition of watching horror movies based on comic books and graphic novels in what I like to call Graphic Horror. This year, I plan on watching a couple early pseudo-Marvel movies. Back in the 80’s they licensed out the story credit on the Lair of Dracula and their Frankenstein comics that they were publishing at the time to Toei studios where they produced two animated films. They were eventually dubbed and released on home video in the US and I will be checking both of those out which will complete my watching of every single Marvel and Marvel-related movie ever made. All 71 of them to date. I also plan on watching From Hell, 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, and possibly another film or two if I have time. I’m currently halfway through Dracula and hope to have that review up by Saturday. It’s hilariously bad so far so keep an eye out for that. Otherwise I’ll likely be keeping a lower profile here at FTMN, but I’ll still be around, and I’m still updating my 100 Essential Superhero Movies rankings every day over at Facebook so give me a like over there too. Until next time, this has been Bubbawheat for Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights.
