Trick ‘r Treat

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem… the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety-human and otherwise-try to survive the scariest night of the year.

Rise of the Gargoyles

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

The gargoyle grows a stone skin during daylight as camouflage and is affected by UV or simulated sunlight lamps. This makes it freeze in place but only if sunlight hits it. Otherwise, it reverts back in darkness. This turning to stone motif is exactly like Disney’s Gargoyles cartoon (except Disney’s stayed stone all day). This creature actually flies and bullets just nick the skin! Also Eric Balfour reminds me of David Naughton in “An American Werewolf in London”. A pretty decent film shot entirely in Paris. This beast is vicious and shows no mercy with moves like a flyby decapitation. I like the underground tunnels and rooms of the egg nest (it’s a female) and that they are …”older than Rome”.
