Sam Raimi wants to posses you with The Possession!
The Sam Raimi produced The Possession haunts screens this weekend…
“A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl’s father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.”
Reportedly based on a true story, The Possession is only produced by Sam Raimi (meaning he found the money to back it). It’s written by Juliet Snowden (“Knowing,” and “Boogeyman”), Stiles White (“The Sixth Sense,” “Jurassic Park III”), and directed by Ole Bornedal (you may remember us talking about “Nightwatch” once upon a time). It stars a couple familiar names like Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and re-introduces young Natasha Calis (“Impact”).
I actually have high hopes for this one, as I often do Sam Raimi related pictures. But I’m not sure if his judgment can be trusted anymore. After all he is letting them remake “Evil Dead,” without Ash, and far more serious.
Robert Englund visits Lake Placid!
Horror legend Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise) will star as the latest member of the “Bickerman family” in the Original Movie Lake Placid: The Final Chapter, premiering Saturday, September 29th, at 9PM (ET/PT) on “The Most Dangerous Night on Television.”
Following Betty White, Cloris Leachman, and Colin Ferguson — who were all part of the Bickerman clan in previous Lake Placid movies — Englund will play Jim Bickerman, a poacher looking to score a big break on hides and eggs from those rare crocs in Black Lake.
In Lake Placid: The Final Chapter, which will co-star Elisabeth Rohm (“Law and Order”) and Yancy Butler (Kick-Ass), attempts to contain the giant crocs fail, and now it’s up to the new Sheriff (Rohm) to stop the latest rampage.(Dread Central)
Lake Placid continues (and promises to end)! Hey, its ScyFy channel, a fake looking giant croc, and Freddy Krueger. Who wouldn’t want to see it? Although I bet the ratings would be higher if they had just called it Freddy Krueger vs Giant Croc. You know you’d watch then.
3-D spiders are waiting to wrap you up!

Any comments Jason and Mike or are you to busy booking your tickets? (pause) That was a rhetorical question! But here’s another reason to want to be there, David Arquette (Eight Legged Freaks, Scream). There you go, what more do you need, giant 3-D spiders and David Arquette. I’ll wait while you book your trip at 3dff.org…
A real American badass!
Barry Bostwick talked about it here on the Creepercast! Abraham Lincoln wasn’t the only president who saved the American ideal in a brutal battle of wits and clever weaponry against insurmountable foreign monster odds! That’s right, FDR not only ran a country while fighting polio and didn’t let being confined to a wheel chair stop his ability to nazi werewolf ass! FDR: American Badass is set to be released on DVD September 25th and you can pre-order your copy from Amazon today (I did)! Here’s the setup…
“After contracting polio from a venomous werewolf bite, FDR won’t stop at single-handedly ending the Great Depression and prohibition. With the help of a team of historic figures, he must end WWII by exacting revenge on an army of Nazi-werewolves from the comfort of his Albert Einstein-designed wheelchair of death. An outrageous, over-the-top spoof, FDR: American Badass is the untold true story of our countrys greatest monster-hunting president!”
This movie is full of names you’ve heard before both historically and on screen, and is guaranteed to be a hilarious addition to the alternate history movement currently storming the horror genre. Don’t forget, if you heard the Barry Bostwick interview we had he promised he would return to the Creepercast to talk some FDR: American Badass!
In the horrid-able news…
Trying to fill big feet can get you an award!
“According to NBC Montana, Randy Lee Tenley, 44, was dressed in a military style Ghillie Suit when he was struck and killed by two cars, one driven by a 15 year old and the other by a 17 year old. Tenley was in the midst of trying to pull off a hoax Bigfoot sighting when he was hit by one vehicle and then run over by a second who didn’t see him laying in the road.”
“According to his companions, he was out there in the ghillie suit attempting to incite a sighting of Bigfoot, to make people think they had seen a Sasquatch,” says Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Jim Schneider. “He probably would not have been very easy to see at all.” (Dread Central)
That’s right, this years Darwin Award goes to (drum roll) Randy Lee Tenley! Come on down and claim your award Randy! Oh, wait, you can’t. Because you’re dead! I’m actually disappointed he didn’t pull this hoax off. We need more pretend Big Foot sightings to keep the dream of someday meeting this uber famous rockstar alive.
’til next we bleed,
