 Friday the 13th twitter boycott, what the hell happened!?

Only in a weird distant future did horror fans of the 60’s conceive the possibility of visceral feminists and horror fans coming together on Friday The 13th to boycott twitter.This occurred after one of the most beloved horror actress’ profile being banned by twitter. That’s right Rose Mcgowan’s account had been banned by Twitter due to her claims against Harvey Weinstein.

Her claims,or rather truths that she aired about his sexual predator like behavior has been on the back off many other recent reports to the media surrounding his behavior. She shared her story via the net and has been at the forefront of  boycotting Mr Weinstein.The aftermath is simple, once again a powerful man walks free whilst another women in the media is positioned as playing the victim. We were outraged here at All Things Horror that a beloved actress both in our genre and in the rest of the film industry could be treated this way by such a high profile online media platform.

What occured on the 13th will be another dark  chapter amongst a gloomy book, and despite not having belief in the fact some men will never overcome their inbuilt bigotry and misogyny, we stand with you Rose and will always love you for your role in Scream.

Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’: Thoughts thus far

Although many have probably binge-watched the whole series already, for those taking their time, much like us, 3 episodes in and we are already intrigued by what has been a fascinating take on true crime icon’s and similarly, some of the most dangerous men to have roamed the earth. The show with it’s lack of comic relief, bright (overplayed) cameos and very raw and harsh plot’s indicate that this show wants to be as brutally honest as possible. Many of us horror fans are true crime fans as well, as there are so many parallels between the fictional and the real villains that scare us.

So far so good is what we have to say about Mindhunter, and if we are this enthralled 3 episodes in then we can only imagine how good it will be. Yet the one question on our mind is, which is better? This new hit, or True detective S1??

Friday Night Fright – October 13th

This month we will see two special Fright Nights! This week it’s a Friday the 13th special, whilst in two weeks we have halloween! So to keep it short and sweet and let the scares commence, don’t forget to check out this week’s addition to the ongoing series as this week we hit the 90’s. Sadly i won’t be really referencing them too much in my recommendations based on the fact that Friday the 13th is a sacred date in the horror-verse.

 

Horror Buffs: Ringu (1998) – Now i didn’t say it wouldn’t completely be unrelated to the 90’s. All horror buffs should have seen Jason and ‘mummy’ cause havoc on the 13th, so in relation to the series, this original of the same name to the 2000’s scare fest is worth a watch. Although the premise won’t shock you, the pure horror the Japanese induce into their films is immense. If you love the Americanized version, you’ll eat this up.

 

Beginners: Friday The 13th (1980) – If you haven’t seen the original Friday The 13th by now, this Friday is your best chance yet. The reason why the date rings a bell for many, although maybe not the best out of all Voorhees films, the originals a no brainer-first-ballot-horror hall of fame movie and influence.

 

Casual Fans: Friday The 13th (2009) – The remake, a teen fest and turn of the decade inspired remake of the original is one of the better remakes of iconic horror films from centuries past. I believe that with supernatural star Jared Padelecki playing a great role as Clay and some pretty awesome death scenes, this flat out murder fest starts heavy and will keep you entertained all the way through.

Top 10 horror directors/producers/writers of the 90’s

The 90’s, unfortunately the visceral contradiction of the decade that preludes it. The 90’s was an era of horror where teen horror overshadowed, there was a lack of depth in the big film story lines bar a few, and really only about 3-5 memorable and worthy horror movies were born. Scream and The Blair Witch Project saved it by the end of the decade, but it was a little too late in the decade that seemed a little lost and confused.

10. Daniel Myrick & Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project)

 

9. Peter Jackson (Dead Alive)

 

8. Sam Raimi (Army of Darkness)

 

7. Takashi Miike (The Audition)

 

6. Abel Ferrara (The Addiction)

 

5. John Carpenter (In The Mouth of Madness)

Next years ‘Halloween’ to be in an alternate reality.

It is still a year away, but when a big hitter such as Halloween is mentioned, we stop and listen regardless of the insignificance of time. We listen more intently when a legend such as John Carpenter speaks, and recently he made some comments about the newest take on Halloween, which will be released sometime in 2018.

Carpenter said that ‘it picks up after the first one’ and ‘that none of the others [sequels] we’re ever made’. He is really ‘impressed’ with whose directing (David Gordon Green) and the way it has been written (Green, Danny Mcbride). The words from the master of 20th century horror should be recognized and if this the case, despite Rob Zombie’s remakes being intriguing and dark, then this remake may be the best take on Myers since the original. I guess we will have to wait and see what this alternative film reality will bring.

More news to follow as it comes.
