Evil Dead The Musical

Last night I took my wife to see the Kanawha Players production of “Evil Dead The Musical in Charleston, WV.  I wasn’t expecting a giant Broadway production… just a fun, campy local musical with a little bit of arterial spray… and that is what they delivered.  Given the chance id love to see a big budget Broadway production of this show.  I bought some raffle tickets for my wife and of course she was victorious and walked away with DVD copies of army of darkness and my name is Bruce.  Last night was the final performance.  Hope you checked it out while it was in town.  Until next time!

House at the End of the Street

The other night I went to the theater to watch a movie.  I have seen most of the current movies that interested me, so I decided to give house at the end of the street a shot.  This movie is about a mom and daughter that move into a new neighborhood.  The house next door has a shady past though… a double murder.  The killer was never found and was believed to still be living in the woods nearby.  I was pleasantly surprised by this movie.  It looked run of the mill and corny but I became very interested in it.  There were a couple of twists that were unexpected and added a lot to the film.  This isn’t the best horror movie I’ve ever seen by any means, but I am not sorry I watched it.  If you’re looking for something to do for a couple hours, I suggest checking out this film.  Good to see Hollywood making a horror/thriller that isn’t a remake or completely mindless.  Until next time.

Columbus.

One of my favorite places to go is Columbus, Ohio.  I go there with my wife a couple times a year.  What I love about Columbus the mist is the German village.  The architecture, the food, the shopping, the people…. for a beer elitist like me, its hard to beat the selection at Schmidt’s Sausage Haus.  I can’t wait to go back to visit.  We have not gone to COSI on our adventures there so maybe that will be in the cards.  I’m burned out and need to get away for a couple days soon. 

Fast vs Slow Zombies

With the looming return of The Walking Dead, I am thinking about zombies today.  I was always a bigger fan of the slow zombies rather than the faster than a Marathon runner ravenous zombies.  My favorite zombie movies are George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead and Lucio Fulci’s “Zombie”.  I like seeing hordes of slow zombies surround a house or a building filled with survivors.  There is more thought and strategy involved.  This is why I love the walking dead so much.  Its like an updated dawn of the dead.  Slow, flesh eating zombies.  You know there is never an end to the numbers.  When there is no more room in hell the dead will walk the earth!  I’m pumped!  Braaaaiiiinnnnsssss!!!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D

At the movie theater the other day I saw a poster for Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D.  I don’t know if it is a reboot or what… but I love the franchise.  The other night I watched part of Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.  As a child it was one of my favorite horror movies.  Bill Moseley is so funny in it and Dennis Hopper showed why he is the man.  RIP Lefty.
