Surprisingly Psyched!

Being a huge fan of all things sci-fi, im actually pretty excited for Ridley Scott’s prequel to the original horror classic Aliens. This trailer looks pretty promising, lets hope it’s as good or better then the prequel to John Carpenter’s “The Thing”!

2011: A year of great screen printing

2011 has been a big year for screen printing everywhere, and the guys at Mondo have been at the fore front of great quality artwork for years. Here’s a taste of some of my favorite screen printed movie posters that they’ve put out this past year!

GOBBLE GOBBLE MOTHER F****r

Seeing as this past Thursday was Thanksgiving, i thought i would ring in some of the holiday cheer with a bit of blood and gore. This particular film has been sitting in my instant que for about a year, but only because of how ridiculous the movie sounds. The movie is called “Thankskilling” and is about a foul mouthed, homicidal turkey, who comes back from the dead every thanksgiving to murder “white people” for taking American soil from the Native Americans, and for slaughtering his kind. The movie follows 4-5 stereotypical college kids, who get caught up in the turkeys murderous rampage, while on their break from classes. His best weapon of choice is a musket styled shotgun, which is only funny because of its irony. Why wouldn’t a killer turkey use a shotgun as his weapon of choice?  This vengeful bird, sports a wily temper as well as some of the funniest one liners i’ve ever heard in a low budget film. Which by the way, only cost 3.5k to create. This movie is pretty bad in many ways, the jokes are terrible, the characters are cliche, the plot doesn’t really make sense, and the acting is atrocious. Does that mean that this is not an enjoyable movie? Not in the slightest! This movie actually holds it’s own as a holiday cult classic and i mean, how many horror movies are out there about thanksgiving? Theirs like a billion about Christmas and Halloween! In one scene, the turkey murders a man, who is making sweet doggie-styled love to his partner.

After a quick axe to the back of his head, the turkey then quickly takes his position and begins to have his way with her, only to shout “You’ve been stuffed!!!!”  Their  are countless hysterical lines by turkey and stupid college kid a like in this flick and needless to say i was pleasantly surprised. Next time you think about that bird your mom’s been baking for hours on end, think about the decades of turkey genocide that humans have committed for tradition and what it would be like if you were on the receiving end; getting stuffed!

Spinal Tap

This is a great video i recently came across on a friends facebook page, any fans of This is Spinal Tap will get a kick out of this. The video below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie , animated with lego’s. TIST is a classic “Rockyoumentary” which follows around the rise and fall of 80′s metal band Spinal Tap.  Its a hilarious movie with tons of rock cliches that will leave you in tears, and enough leather and big hair to make you regret every photo taken of you in your 20′s. if you love sex, drugs and/or rock and roll or just feel like getting your face melted off then definitely check out “This is Spinal Tap”!
