Hey El Moochadores, I just crawled out of my self-induced coma (seriously, best cure for getting sick: Knock yourself the fuck out then wake up in a pool of sweat and a fug of confusion! Still a little shaky. Also, I am not a doctor. Don’t do anything I suggest. EVER) to find out Game of Thrones started, Dr. Who regenerated a vagina, and Martin Landau and George Romero just died. The first two I could give a shit less about, but it did bum me out to learn about the deaths of Mr. Landau and Mr. Romero. Chud and I have been long time horror movie fans, and I have a lot of good childhood memories staying up late and watching his “dead” movies. I always liked Dawn the best, but probably because I was more of a Tom Savini fan at the time… Anyways, it also sucks that we lost Martin Landau. Ed Wood is one of my all time favorite movies (like really high in my top ten list that I’ve never written down) and I also remember him from Mission Impossible, Cleopatra, and Space 1999. Also, he had a kick ass appearance in Columbo where he played both murdering twins! Oh, yeah; You can’t really spoil a Columbo episode. They kind of do that themselves.
So, while I go drink a lot of juice and change my sheets (Christ I hope that’s just fever sweat…), check out a couple of videos of some of Landau and Romero’s work.
I just found out they have the entire Night of the Living Dead on the Youtube! Uber-enjoy!
Hello again, El Moochadores! Yeah, post have been kind of sparse lately, but that’s only because life’s been kicking me around as if I were a giant hacky sack. However, there seems to be a calm in the storm, so I wanted to post about some future prints we have on the way. Recently Chudd has been doing a lot of sketch work, and I’m really proud of the results. It took some doing (and a small fist fight) but I finally convinced Chudd to make some prints of the work he’s done. We’re still in the process of getting high quality scans of the work, producing new pieces, and formatting them, but I thought I would give you a preview of some of the sketches that will soon be available on Murraybroscreative.com as prints and mini-prints. If Chudd keeps up with the “evil-eye” thing, we may even produce a small art book!
Anyways, check out the art below and keep checking back for updates as prints are made available!
Hey El Moochadores! It’s our favorite time of the year, and it has become sort of a tradition to re-post some of our favorite Halloween cartoons! Y’know, invite the good spooky vibes. I’ve also included a small list of links to full (and mostly awful) horror movies currently up on the Youtube. Anyways, check out this small collection and we hope you all have a Happy Halloween. Now I am off to get drunk on cheap booze, and sick on small candy. Hit the jump to see all the videos!
Via Fangoria: As teenagers both Chudd and I were obsessed with the idea of being F/X make-up artists. We spend a lot of time reading Fangoria Magazine, then tearing out our eyebrows with misapplied liquid latex, and then watching many (many!) low budget horror films. Well, we never realized the dream of being make-up artist (thanks to the amazingly bad advice of the world’s shittiest high school councilor and the inattention of our perpetually self involved parents) but in the years since being a teenager I’ve often thought about those wonderful direct to video horror movies we loved so much. Chief among those were the films produced by Full Moon Features. Produced by horror movie veteran, Charles Band, Full Moon had an extensive library of horror and science fiction titles that existed in a time before CGI effects and YouTube. Often starring B or C list actors caked in layers of prosthetic make-up effects, and being very low in budget to produce, these movies were incredibly fun. Much like a little slice of Halloween all year round! They were like our 1990’s version of the Pulp Magazine translated onto VHS tapes. I thought these movies had just disappeared, but I was so wrong because all the great films like Puppet Master, Trancers, and Dollman, can be found on Fullmoonstreaming.com! They even have new movies I never knew about because they were made during the many years I wasted at college or pursuing a career! The streaming service cost $6.99 a month and gives you unlimited access to a large portion of the Full Moon library with new (old-new) films being added regularly. It’s kind of weird, but just looking at this kind of makes me feel like a teenager again. Well, honestly, not that much has changed since then, but at least I got Full Moon back! Nuts to you universe!
Anyways, I’ve posted a couple of trailers below so you can see what you’re getting into.
Hey El Moochadors. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to do a post, so I thought I would take a moment this morning, before I get to work, and write about this nifty piece of geek art I spotted on deviantArt.com. Evil Dead 2 is easily in my top ten favorite horror flicks (probably just under Hellraiser…), and I really like what the artist, jusscope (Justin Orr) did here. I dunno… I think my favorite part is Ash’s deadite girl happily popping her head off. Anyhow, jusscope has more great work in his gallery, so check it out when you get a chance. I need to go put some pants on and get caught up on work. Later!
Hey El Moochadors. I just got an email pointing me towards a new Youtube video by Not Literally Productions. If you remember they did the Harry Potter Walk of Shame video. I dunno, usually I get a little uncomfortable watching musicals (I guess I’m just a weird guy), and I’m not a big fan of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (I watched it once, and that was enough for me). I’ll give this one a pass though ’cause I’m huge fan of old horror films, it gives off a definite Halloween vibe (which I’m in the mood for right now anyhow), and the chick dressed up as Vampira was pretty hot (the other one wasn’t too bad either…).
Anyhow, check out the video below and let us know what you think. Also, one other thing to note here: the puppets in the video are from a series called Transylvania Television. Unfortunately I just now learned about it, and it looks like it’s been around for awhile. I ended up watching most of the first season today after I watched the music video. Check’em out, you’ll like’em. Later!
Here’s something interesting I came across on my reader tonight (via StrangeKidsClub.com). I also thought it was a good post to start October with—holy shit it’s October already! Holy shit rent’s due! Dammit… Anyhow, I’m kind of a geek for old horror movies, so I really liked this short. It’s called “House of Monsters”, and it was created by Dawn Brown. Check it out below. I would say more, but I gotta go figure out how I’m going to scrape together my share of the rent before the third (is it possible to give $500 worth of blood and semen in two days?). Booyakasha!
Hey if you liked that one, she did another one called “Midnight Snack!”; check it out below.
Yarghhh Warfff! One day left then it’s the weekend for me. I love three day weekends and look forward to a Friday of lounging around the apartment and diligently working to achieve the perfect nap. But until then there’s moo-biz to get done and lot of internet goodies to share with all our loyal readers and read-ettes. Enjoy.
VOLTRON: The End – (Live action short directed by Alex Albrecht)
Film maker Alex Albrecht put this awesome little Voltron short together to show us all what happens when happiness and hope are sucked right out of the universe. Still, excellent short film and worth watching.
Wow they pull off cute and fucking jaw dropping disturbing at the same time. Impressive. Most Impressive.
Just some interesting stuff here that I’ve come across and thought is worth a Moo. Dang. I should just save that and post it as my intro for these. That way I won’t have to rewrite it, and still explain what the Morning Regurge is about. Now there’s some think’n for ya.
New Mondo Tees A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors Poster
I thought this looked pretty bad-ass, and it’s from Mondo Tees, or the guys who do really cool shit. I came across this in my reader (via GeekTyrant.com), and thought I should share it. I’m a huge fan of Mondo’s work, and I love the illustration style. I’m also a huge fan of the third Nightmare on Elm Street film. Sure the name “Dream Warriors” is kinda… well, you know… but after watching a giant Freddy snake almost swallow a girl (and they didn’t use any CGI back then kids), a topless tongue-flinging nurse, and Dick Cavett turning into Freddy to take a stab at Zsa Zsa (see below), it became my favorite of the Elm Street films. Looks like the poster will be available on Thursday August 4th… wait, that’s today! Fuckers! I just paid my rent and I’m outta cash!
Hey geeks! Here’s something I came across on my reader last night (via GeekTyrant.com). It’s a short fan film by Trent Duncan, called Freddy vs Jason vs Ash… which is pretty much Freddy vs Jason vs Ash… wasn’t there a comic book about that a while ago?
Yeah, it’s kind of cheesy, but what do you expect from a fan film? Being a horror movie geek I can appreciate it for what it is, and what they were trying to do. I’ve always been more in favor of old school horror anyhow, and hey, at least the girls in it are hot. Anyhow, check it out below, and let us know what you think.
