Baseball. I never miss a match or a score. Good, clean fun! But, this weekend, die-hard baseballers like myself were freaked out when they noticed several creepy smiling people in the crowd at major league games, including the Dodgers vs. Cardinals, Mets vs. A’s, and Yankees vs. Sox. These grinning weirdos, who remained eerily still, sat behind the place where the batters bat so they could not be missed by cameras. Two were wearing bright yellow T-shirts that read: SMILE. So, what does it all mean? Did these poor unfortunate souls use hygiene products laced with the Joker’s Smylex? Or were they straight-up demons? Turns out, it was a marketing stunt to promote the new horror film Smile. They were hired actors. “Hey mom! Guess what? I finally booked something! … What is it? Um, wellll, it’s kinda weird actually…”
Like Pinnochio, the book Winnie The Pooh by A.A. Milne has recently entered the public domain meaning Disney’s vice grip on those properties has slipped enough that Guillermo del Toro has a competing Pinnochio movie coming to Netflix and some sicko with a honey fetish has Pooh and Piglet running around with axes making mincemeat out of women in the new horror film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. Personally, I’d prefer to see WTP turned into a porno based on that time he got his ass stuck in Rabbit’s gloryhole, but I suppose that probably already exists.
Since Halloween is right around the corner, what would be a better scary gift for yourself than purchasing the home from 1984’s A Nightmare On Elm Street? Personally, since I don’t like night terrors, I would stay far, far away from this creepy home where sleep becomes a death wish. But I digress. The home is definitely up for sale but if you think you’ll be able to defeat its asking price by breaking into the piggy bank you’ve had since 1984 you need to think again.
Open Post: Hosted By Sir Anthony Hopkins Revealing That He Thought “Silence Of The Lambs” Was A Kid’s Movie
Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) and Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) reunited for a virtual chat for Variety’s Actors on Actors interview series. They discussed their respective careers and eventually circled back to their experience filming 1991’s Silence of the Lambs. Jodie asked Anthony if he had any specific memories from the movie, and he admitted that when he first heard the film’s title, he assumed it was a kid’s movie. I guess he thought Silence of the Lambs sounded like a Babe-type film about a lamb who can’t “baaaah.” But, as he soon learned, the actual script was a wee bit darker.
Ooo, here’s one for all you scary movie lover. Psycho killer Buffalo Bill’s house from The Silence of the Lambs is on the market, just in time for Hallow’s Eve. The 1910 Victorian home in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania can be all yours for just $298,500. For three-floors and four-bedrooms! Hmmm, maybe there’s something to be said for escaping the city…
The house still has many of the same features it did in the film, including the original hardwood trim and floors. Listing agents Eileen Allan and Shannon Assad say that it would “make for an amazing Airbnb” opportunity. Hmmm, they speak the truth.
Jordan Peele better keep one eye over his shoulder less Chris Rock swoop in and claim the title of Most Impressive Second Act As a Horror Film Auteur By a Black Comedian. Sure, Chris is a little older, but that doesn’t mean his brain isn’t overflowing with witty and original ideas that propel the genre forward. According to Variety, Chris is taking a stab at spin-off of the Saw franchise.
