It's Friday The 13th! Aaaahhhh!!


The day is finally here! Jason Voorhees returns to the silver screen! By the way, did you know that next month at this exact same time, it will be Friday the 13th all over again?!

Couple things I wanted to mention being that I feel obligated as a horror blogger to make some kind of post on this special day ....

If you head over to everyone's favorite horror site Bloody Disgusting, you can check out the brand spankin new trailer for The Descent 2, the continuing blood soaked cave dwelling adventures of Sarah. This one picks up right where the first left off (if we're talking about the Americanized ending), with Sarah being forced to return to the caves with the authorities in an attempt to locate the bodies of her missing friends. Cause ya know, nobody tends to believe you when you say all your friends got slaughtered by cave beasts and you were the only one that survived. And you're covered in their blood.


The trailer was removed from BD once already, so watch it fast before it disappears again!

Thoughts? I think it looks like a bloody good time, myself. Will it be as good as the first one? I highly doubt it but I really don't expect it to be. The Descent is one of my favorite horror movies of the last several years and it'd be really hard to top it or even come close to it. But as long as there's buckets of blood, dark caves, Shauna Macdonald, and cave creatures, i'm there! And judging by the trailer, it looks like a big check on all of those!

REMINDER! SPLINTER AIRS ON THE SCI FI NETWORK TOMMOROW NIGHT (VALENTINE'S DAY) AT 9/8c! It will then re-air once more the following night at 7pm. I stress this fact because it's a pretty kickass little indy movie and I want you to check it out. If you're gonna be out doing queerish Valentine's day activities (which I likely will be), set those DVR's now!

Well, i'm off to see Friday The 13th! I know some people are against seeing horror movies in the daytime but I really can't wait till nightfall for this one. Not to mention tickets are super cheap for the early showings and once ya get into that theatre, it doesn't really matter whether it's day or night, does it? I'll be back either tonight or tommorow with my thoughts on the film!

You're very welcome!

I saw the movie in the daytime, too. With kids and jobs and life, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

I liked it. Wasn't blown away, but it was a good, fresh, back to basics take on Jason and the F13 movies. Would love another one!

Drat - the trailer is no longer up :-(

I LOVE The Descent!! Hopefully, this sequel will be worthwhile!

After much thought, I decided to pass on Splinter - I will just wait for DVD - not only will it be cut, I hate watching a movie with commercials!

I hear ya on the commercials, Bone. Especially for a movie you've never seen before.

If I find a working video of the Descent 2 trailer that hasn't been taken down yet, i'll let ya know!
