Horror News: Halloween + More

Rob Zombie has given a little more insight to the upcoming "HALLOWEEN" project he is now attached to.

Rob said that the film will be a prequel and a reimaging all in one. So for the most part it's a fancy way to say its a fucking remake.

Now do I think Rob is going to do a good job? Of course I do. This guy knows how to make a good horror film. But what I don't like is fucking with another classic. Does Halloween really need a remake??? Bah... as if the remake of Friday The 13th wasn't bad enough news...

"World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War" has just been announced after a "bidding war" between Brad Pitt's PLAN B company in association with Paramount and Leo Decaprio's Appian Way in association with Warner Brothers. Anyway, Brad Pitt won the bid war, and Paramount owns the rights.

The story is based on Max Brooks' (son of comedy legend Mel Brooks) recent novel "The Zombie Survival Guide" which is terribly fiction, but extremely amusing. The movie plot is said to explain a "zombie war" told by surviving soldiers.

I absoutely love zombie flicks, so I'm all for this project. However, I'm really interested to see how much they follow this novel because there isn't any mention of a "zombie war" within its pages. But oh well... should be fun.

No More Music

Getting in trouble wasn't part of what I made this site for.

A part of this blog was designed to inform people about new music as you all know... I made it so that people could listen to an album & go out & buy it if they liked it. Did all of them? I don't know. I hope some of you liked what was posted here & went out & bought the albums or ordered them. Supporting the artists we like should be a priority for all. So I'm just asking all of you, if you downloaded something from me, please go buy it.

So I bet you're wondering what's going to happen to The Beard?? Well it will still be here, I'm not in really any trouble... I was just asked to remove an album... & instead of risking another scenerio like that again, I decided to remove all my music I had posted. So if you're looking for music, check out some of my links.

My priority from now on will be focusing on Horror News, Reviews, Discussion & Articles. along with personal developements since I, myself am in the movie business.

An actual message board (not the little side board I have posted here now) will be available soon.

Thanks for your support thus far & I hope you guys continue to look at my site.

Horror News: Wishmaster VS Leprechaun Trailer

OK not really... so don't get that excited, but an "industry professional" created a fake trailer pairing the two magic baddies together. It's very convincing & definitely worth checking out. Reports say that there is NO movie like this in production, but after watching this slick trailer, one must wonder if they're not thinking about it. (Source: Fangoria)

Check out the trailer HERE (you can also 'right click & save as'. It's in QT format)

Horror News: Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

Here is the theatrical poster (for now)

And here is the TRAILER

Honestly... it looks just like it's 2003 counterpart. I guess giving Leatherface a curly mullet justifies as a "beginning." Eh well I don't know... I'm a fan of all the TCM movies so far, so I'm sure this will entertain no matter how much it doesn't make sense. Anyway... view the trailer & comment away either below or on the side bar.

Want a free month of Blockbuster Online??

Ok well I did... so here's what to do.

1. Go to & sign up
2. Enter the promo code "FRIENDS" or "BBPARENT06" (that's a ZERO before the 6)
3. Rent, rent, rent

You're allowed 3 dvds out at a time. Plus you get 4 free in store rental coupons you can print out. If you don't cancel within 30 days, you will start being charged a regular monthly fee of $17.99. So if you don't the service anymore, just cancel before your time period is up.

They actually have a lot of movies. I typed in some pretty rare viewing material & to my surprise, they had everything I entered. So don't be afraid if they don't have what you want because I'm sure they do.

Btw... it's just like Netflix... fast & free shipping both ways.


Horror News: Zombie Does Halloween

A couple posts down I told you that Rob Zombie was rumored to be attached to the upcoming Halloween 9 project. Well today it turns out to be the truth, even though on Saturday Zombie completely denied being involved with the project at all. Tricky tricky.

However, the flick is not to be Halloween 9 & it will not be a prequel or a sequel but rather a "re-imaging" of the original flick.

Err... Now I love the idea that Zombie is taking this job, but why mess with the original? Remember what happened when they "re-imaged" Dawn of the Dead in 2004??? Yeah... it didn't hold a candle in the wind next to the original. So I don't exactly know my position on this just yet. I'll make up my mind as more info leaks.

Carlos Mencia

This is quite possibly the funniest thing on the plant. Carlos is amazing & this skit is probably my favorite. This was taken from his "No Strings Attached" episode.
