Rest in Peace, King of the Zombies and The Man Who Was Never Born

We lost two true legends today: director George A. Romero and actor Martin Landau. Romero was the man who gave us the zombie film as we know it today, Landau brought Bela Lugosi back to life for director Tim Burton. Both men were masters of their craft and will be deeply missed by us all. During this week, we will be paying homage to these two fallen icons. Thank you, gentlemen. May you rest well. xoxo

Wonder Woman Leaves The Mummy In Her Dust Retaining #1 Spot at the Box Office!

(Submitted by Prince Adam…Thanks, Heroic Ho-mie! 🙂 xo)

Over the weekend, Universal Studio’s launched its connected series of classic Monster Films with a reboot of The Mummy, While I enjoyed what turned out to be a flawed, yet entertaining film and hope it’s worldwide box office is good enough for the Dark Universe to continue, the North American box office was still fixated on the power and grace of Wonder Woman. In the U.S. and Canada, the superhero origin story collected another $58,520,627.  This coupled with strong weekday performances has led the Patty Jenkins directed film to a 10 day domestic total of $206,343,175. That number means Wonder Woman has surpassed the lifetime domestic output of Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men, X-Men First Class, and Superman Returns.  As I write this, it is likely surpassing the total domestic gross of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.  Other Batman films, whose total Wonder Woman has absolutely eclipsed are Batman Returns and Batman Forever. As far as second weekend grosses go, Wonder Woman ranks third amongst all DC Comics films, behind only The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.  However, against her fellow DCEU Films Wonder Woman’s second weekend haul, outperformed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.  The reason this was possible is due to the fact that Wonder Woman only suffered a miniscule 43. 3% decline in business.  The only other superhero film able to hold that well during its second weekend, after opening on a traditional Friday was Sam Raimi’s Spider- Man in 2002. Internationally, Wonder Woman dipped a normal $58.1 Million.  This represents a 54% decline from last week. Therefore, Wonder Woman’s international intake stands at, 230,200,000. Added together Wonder Woman has ricocheted a total of $436,543,175 off of her bracelets and into Warner Brother’s bank vault.  I’ll be back next week to see how Wonder Woman fares against another new release, that being the animated threequel Cars 3.  No matter what happens, there’s no doubt that when it comes to box office, Wonder Woman has got legs and she knows how to use them.

 

#FBF: The “Alien Pours It On” Edition

A fine Alien: Covenant Day to all you XXXeno-ho-mies out there! We’re celebrating this glorious day with a cold, refreshing can of vintage terror! It’s your friendly neighborhood XXXXenomorph in a gut-bursting commercial for Pepsi!
To promote the release of 1992’s Alien 3, Pepsi unleashed the beast on the most radically ’90s teens imaginable. After being cornered by the eXXXtra-terror-estrial, the XXXtreme dudes resort to their most powerful weapon: the crisp flavor of Pepsi!
How magical is that? Coke may cause “Mean” Joe Greene to give you his jersey, but Pepsi keeps movie monsters from eviscerating you! I’d say on usefulness, the point goes to Pepsi… with no offense to Mr. Greene.
Can you imagine how many horrible deaths would have been prevented had Ripley just given the beast a Pepsi? It’s not like she wasn’t aware of the awesome power of Pepsi! Here she is having a Pepsi Day without a single care for the fate of humanity! YOU’VE DOOMED US ALL, RIPLEY!

Without any further ado, here’s the commercial. Just remember…

 In Space, No One Can Hear You Say “Pepsi, Please.”

Happy Alien: Covenant Day, Kinky Kreeps!

#MonsterMaskMonday

Ho-wdy, ho-mies! Just a quickie to let you know about this new feature I’m starting. I have a vast collection of rad as heck Monster Masks, and I figured I’d start sharing them with you, Kinky Ho-style.

This week’s selection is Shorty (Killer Klowns from Outer Space) from Trick or Treat Studios. (Spoiler Alert: A LOT of my masks are going to be from them. I’m a huge fan of their work! :))

Have a wicked week, Kinky Ho-mies…Here’s a lil’ sumthin’ to get things started off on a rockin’ note. 😉 xoxo

#FBF: The “ToXXXic Tim” Edition

Ho-wdy, My Curry-craving creeps! As we all know, Tim “Wadsworth” Curry is just about the seXXXiest villian in… well, just about everything he’s in! That smooth baritone just makes every part eXXXtra hot… even when he’s playing sentient pollution! That’s right, ho-mies! Tim Curry played the bad guy (shocking!) in 1992’s FernGully: The Last Rainforest, which is basically like cartoon Avatar… except a gazillion times better! In the film, Curry gets to go full Frank N. Furter as he sings a seductive song… about polluting the world. Oh, Curry… only you could make being a Captain Planet villain seem cool! 🙂

That’s all well and good, but nothing beats seeing the man do his thang! if you need more Curry in your diet, check out Tim Curry recording the song below! Tim Curry, you’re totally toXXXic! 🙂

Side Note: These eXXXist, and I own them. (Thanks to Mr. DinosaurDracula and his awesome Fun Pack this month. :))

Happy Birthday, William Gaines!

A very Happy Birthday to beloved comics MADman, William Gaines! 😉

Bill Gaines is the groovy ghoul who published EC Comics, creating generations of wonderful lunatics! Gaines introduced light-hearted gore and morbid merriment to comics, and gave us a true comic book hero: The Crypt Keeper. If you prefer yuks to yuck, Gaines was also the man who drove us mad… by publishing Mad Magazine!   When his comics were under attack for their “questionable morality,” Gaines fought the good fight and spoke at the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency to defend  his horror comics.  Some say it was a mistake, but we salute Mr. Gaines for having the courage to stand up for his medium. For making the world Madder and publishing the best terror tales, we will always love the Holy Heck out of Bill Gaines! 🙂 xoxo

For all you EC Fan-Addicts out there, check out this segment from the Horror Hall of Fame with Gaines himself:

#TBT: The “Headshrinkers Ball” Edition

Are you looking to shrink the heads of your enemies to harness their spirit without the hassle of decapitating them? Boy, have we got the toy for you!

Released in the monster-loving ’60s, Pressman’s Witch Dr. Head Shrinkers Kit is the perfect toy for the little Wednesday or Pugsley in your life. Like all artists, the witch doctor has to start somewhere, so grant your child a HEAD start on their career with this charming little kit. unfortunately, this nifty kit is hard to come by and we certainly don’t encourage any traditional methods of headshrinking… at least, not in public. Pressman says, “Now, shrunken heads for all occasions, collect ‘em, swap ‘em, give ‘em to your witch doctor friends. You can always cook up more with Pressman’s Witch Dr. Head Shrinkers Kit!”

Harmless? Non-Toxic? You just lost a customer, Pressman!

Thank Goodness it’s here! Ralph’s was out!

The Tools for Success!

NES Friday the 13th: The Movie :)

Ho-wdy, you valiant Voorhees lovers! I’m not sure about you kinky kreeps, but I happen to love the living dead poop out of the NES Friday the 13th game…

…And so does director Michael Ramova! So much so that he directed this nifty short film based on that eXXXcellent 8-bit horror show! 🙂 Funded through Indiegogo (by Friday Fiends like me :)), Mr. Ramoval did what Paramount couldn’t and brought Jason to 2017. You just can’t keep a bad ghoul down. 🙂

Check it out below, Kinky Ho-s! 🙂 xoxo
