The Shape of Water: You Snooze, You Lose!

Universal Studios had been sitting on “The Creature from the Black Lagoon” for 6 decades.

For dozens of different reasons they were never able to reboot the franchise.  
I suppose that director Guillermo deo Toro was tired of trying to pull blood from a stone. So he set out and did it his own way by designing his own creature (without ever using the word “creature” to describe it, by the way) and, now, the rest is cinematic history.
You snooze, you lose!
Congratulations to Fox Searchlight for helping Guillermo get it done!

Congrats to Horror Film Director Guillermo del Toro for 2 Oscar Wins!!

Congrats to Guillermo Del Toro on his well-deserved Best Director and Best Picture Oscars for “The Shape of Water”.

I reviewed the film here a few months ago and loved its magic and beauty.  It is a poetic tribute to a bygone film era.

There couldn’t be a more deserving human being.
Guillermo has always been a humble and sweet guy and he is a horror film icon.
Always helpful to his peers and minions and encouraging his team.

I have a video bumper of him promoting The Horror Channel for us about 10 years ago.
Must dig it out and post.


You’re Going To Need A Bigger Computer To Watch The New Trailer For ‘House Shark’

Coming at us from indie madman Ron Bonk – nowhere is safe when there is a House Shark on the prowl.  As the release draws ever nearer  – we have not gotten a redone trailer and some pretty nifty artwork to help seal the deal.

First up – a synopsis to wet the palate.

“You’re gonna need a bigger house! When Frank (Trey Harrison) finds his happy home under attack by a dangerous but largely unknown breed of shark, he’s enlists the aid of the world’s only “House Shark” Expert, Zachary (Michael Merchant), and a grizzled former real estate agent, Abraham (Wes Reid), to embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast and claim back his life. It’s JAWS in a house! From writer/director Ron Bonk (“She Kills”, “Clay”).”

You ready for some video?

House Shark” was produced by Howard Gromero, Jonathan Straiton and Tim Ritter. The score was composed by Emmett Van Slyke with special effects by Marcus Koch.

They are shooting for an April roll out and if you want one – you best be CLICK HERE right now and lock youself in a copy.
