Cinema Wasteland Spring 2012!

Another Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo has come and gone and it was not a disappointment.  The Trio and I had a great time hob knobbing with the creep loving public.  As always, I spent way too much money on things that I don’t need but have to have.    I mean who doesn’t need a bar of soap in the shape of Michael Myers head?  I know I need it.  The wonderful ladies at Spellboundsoapworks.com have a wide variety of interesting soaps with a sinister twist.

I also ran into the wonderful people at Headsville Roll.  They have a lot of nifty stuff.  I bought a small Zombie Acrylic that I will treasure forever by an artist named Jack Larson.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got a very nice surprise when I ran into John.  He is the person who sold me Little Jason and Little Michael originally.  I guess you could say he’s like their dad.  I bought a couple pins from him and he was kind enough to pose with the guys.  Look for him at a horror convention near you.  tell him that you are a fan of the Trio and thank him!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you want some laughs and some scares then check out “The Puppet Monster Massacre”.  Of course the Trio loves the idea of murderous dolls so they wanted a picture with Dustin Mills and Erica Kisseberth.  Thanks guys and good luck.  We will be watching for you in the future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Trio ran into one of their biggest crushes, Terra Incognita.  She is in the film “She Devils A Go Go”.  Make sure that you check it out.

The biggest surprise of the day was running into the iconic “Zombie Girl” from “Night of the Living Dead”.  She was very gracious and thought the Trio was hilarious.  Nice to meet you Kyra Schon.

 

 

Let’s be honest though, there wa only one big reason why we spent the day amongst the scary.  We wanted to meet John Saxon.  He is a legend and has a close personal relationship with Freddy Krueger.  He was so nice and so patient with the fans.  His wife was very impressed when she found about the Trio’s fan base.  She asked that we give a shoutout.  Go to his site to purchase a photo or better yet, send him a note or an email and tell him how much you admire him.  Tell him that the Trio and Jenny Bendis sent you.  Visit his site at Johnsaxonsite.com or drop him a note:

All in all, it was a fabulous day at Cinema Wasteland.  The Trio and I can’t wait until the Fall Expo.  Have a great Summer and keep watching those Horror Movies!!

 

 

How Amazing is This??

I wrote about a remake of “The Munsters” in December. The television series is headed for NBC in the Fall and will be retitled “Mockingbird Lane”. Bryan Singer is directing the pilot which is said to be a much darker version of the beloved television series. The story is set to start with the relocation of “The Munsters” to Mockingbird Lane after an animal attack brought on by Eddie Munster’s puberty-driven transformations. Best news of all……Eddie Izzard has been cast as Grandpa Munster. Yippee!!

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Jessica Lange for winning Outstanding Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in “American Horror Story” at the SAG Awards.

Another Ouija Board Movie???

Yes it is definitely true.  According to the Hollywood Reporter Hasbro is financing the development and has been shopping for a studio.  They describe the movie has more of an action/adventure than horror.  HMMMM  anybody thinking about Jumanji right now??  An even better question would be, is the world big enough for another Ouija board movie?  I mean who could top Tawny Kitaen in “Witchboard” ?

Well the good news is that The writer that Hasbro has signed on Marti Noxon to work on the script.  Noxon has written such awesomeness as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”, “Prison Break” and most recently she wrote the remake of  “Fright Night”.  I actually loved the remake of “Fright Night” so this is all encouraging to me.  As for the part about action/adventure as opposed to horror.  There is no way I am staying away from this.  I don’t care what they call it.  YAY!

Now have a little fun and spend a couple seconds checking out the trailer to “Witchboard”.  I can’t stop  from watching this movie whenever it’s on TV.

It’s true!

 

 

Bryan Singer will be producing and directing “The Munsters” reboot for NBC.  Singer, the director of movies such as “X-Men”,” X2″, and “The Usual Suspects“.  Singer will be directing the pilot and afterwards will stay on as an executive producer.

 

Universal Television is producing the project, described as an imaginative reinvention of The Munsters as a visually spectacular one-hour drama … “

 

Bryan Fuller is the writer  and will also be an executive producer.  His previous work includes “Pushing Daisies” so it should be more than a little quirky.  I admit that I was more than a little torn and skeptical when I heard the news of the reboot but with these guys attached I think it might have a fighting chance.  Can’t wait to see the finished product.
