In case you’re dying to know, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will air tonight on the SyFy Channel at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
The Sharknado series has taken pride not in how good it can be, but how bad. Tonight’s installment promises loads of overdone cheese from the likes of David Hasselhoff, Bo Derek, and even Jerry Springer. However, tornados really can make animals fall from the skies; snails, worms, cows, frogs, even fish have been reported in the past. For a brief overview, check out National Geographic‘s article here, and don’t call me after 9 p.m., because you know where I’ll be!
My cousin Maryanne and I used to enjoy a horror movie or two following our annual excursion to the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival or before one of my famous (or infamous) parties. We enjoyed the chance to share our favorites with each other (and play catch up on things we wanted to see but hadn’t yet) so much we decided to get together a couple of weekends a year and make films the focus.
Here’s what we’ve seen so far and what we thought…what will we watch this weekend? Time will tell. We tend to get a giant stack and pick according to mood.
Exists, the new Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) found footage piece about Bigfoot that’s one hell of an edge-of-your-seat ride, is available today on DVD. I don’t know if it has any special features — and that’s usually how I judge whether or not I’m going to own the disc — but this movie is so good I’m getting it regardless. Here’s the Amazon link: http://amzn.com/B00Q582P5E
Need a fix? In the meantime, check out Dark Discussions Episode 162 by clicking here…I was lucky enough to get to guest to discuss this movie that’s so wonderfully reminiscent of The Legend of Boggy Creek. In case you’re wondering whether or not this thing is terrifying? It’s made several 2014 Top Ten Horror Movie Lists:
Snow! I luckily missed the [non-blizzard for my area just north of NYC] Juno because I was down in Walt Disney World, but I didn’t miss this one! Luckily, a friend of mine from around the local theater community (more specifically, TheatreWorks New Milford) has a wicked sense of humor and cooked this up just in time. I couldn’t resist sharing it. Snowbound or Snowbird, you’re sure to get a chuckle out of it! Enjoy!
Whether or not you thought Annabelle was crystal or crap (or you’re on the fence about going to see it), this prequel to The Conjuring has been much anticipated and much talked about. But just like anything, there’s more to the story.
Nathan (occult specialist and also my husband) and I join Philip, Eric, Mike, and Abe on Dark Discussions to explore the truth behind the real case and the film’s dogma–and share a few spooky tales of our own (two words: chicken feet!). You can listen on ITunes and Stitcher, or here at the Dark Discussions website, or click here to play it directly:
Craft and subtlety exist in both good and bad horror movies! On the new Reviews from the Shadows podcast, the Paranormal Eh? Radio Network’s Terry Konig and I talk story (strong or not!) and bring those little things you might have missed to light in two horror movies each month.
