Drag Me To Hell (2009) and Happy Death Day (2017)

This week, after the news, we’ll cover the drive-in classic, “Drag Me To Hell” followed by our discussion of the short film, “Its Yellow Eyes”, and our modern-horror feature film, “Happy Death Day” Get your Pop Rocks ready, turn up the volume, and relax. Here we go... 

News Features:

  1. If you remember the animal musicians from The Banana Splits Adventure Hour as your furry friends, that might change soon. The children’s show that aired from 1968 to 1970, and into syndication after that is going to get a horror retake. Reports are that Warner Brothers and Syfy are teaming up to bring the Splits gang back as a film is about “a boy named Harley” who is celebrating his birthday by attending a Banana Splits TV show taping with his family. Things then “take an unexpected turn, and the body count quickly rises.” Release details are still coming, though Dani Kind, Steve Lund, and Sara Canning will be joining the cast. We were skeptical, but there is already an IMDB page https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2019/02/the-banana-splits-are-returning-but-as-a-horror-fi.html

  2. In general movie news along with some horror news, Amazon is stepping up their movie game. They are now striving, as a start, to add 30 original movies a year to their lineup including 8 horror movies from Blumhouse this year that will not show in theaters, only exclusively on Amazon. Blumhouse is the company that has brought us tons of great films such as Split, the most recent Halloween, Happy Death Day, and Get Out. So we’re certainly looking forward to what Amazon will be bringing us in the coming months. http://www.startribune.com/amazon-movies-branch-out-with-thrillers-sexy-date-night-flicks-horror-and-more/506221022/

  3. The man who helped bring us American Horror Story has announced he has another series in the works that will begin filming this summer. Called Hollywood, he describes it in an Instragram post as “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown.” It’s a deal with Netflix, and will have an initial airing exclusively on that network. No more details at this time, but he teases us that more is to come. Of course there is, and we can hardly wait. https://ew.com/tv/2019/02/22/ryan-murphy-netflix-series-hollywood/

  4. If they’d had Google in the movies, things might have been very different as they show in a series of ads that completely change the outcome. Two of them feature the classics Scream and Psycho. They are short, effective and very funny. Who knew that “Okay Google” could be a life-saver? We’ve got a link to the commercials in the show notes, so you should check them out.      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhvUWIcb68s

  1. Tom Savini has announced on his twitter feed “Coming soon. A gigantic coffee table photo biography. Release date to be announced.” He’s truly a multi-talented guy who has been a part of dozens of horror and action movies and shows as actor, director, makeup effects artist, stuntman and crew, including Dawn of the Dead, both Creepshow movies, From Dusk Til Dawn, and Machete. He’s had a long and interesting career, and the book should be one worth checking out.
