Freakling Bros To Retire Nosferatu This Year With “Death Of The Vampyre”

Oh, Vegas. As soon as the first leaf falls from (depending on where you live), the neighborhood tree, it marks the end of boob and butt-crack sweat and begins a few glorious months of favorable weather conditions. If you, like me, live in what we refer to Satan’s Armpit, you know exactly what I mean and how we feel about this. And as we continue a stroke of relief of 90 degree days in October, the long-standing Las Vegas-based haunt Freakling Bros. has been hard at work during those awful Summer days to prepare for the most wonderful time of the year and the October opening of the infamous, Trilogy of Terror.

 

The legacy that is Freakling started over 40 years ago with the Mollner family and their passionate love affair with Samhain. With what began as a simple, yet startling decorated haunted house to amuse trick-or-treaters on Halloween night, ballooned into three separate haunts immersive experience that returns year after year to the Vegas Valley with welcoming arms to both locals and tourists alike. Being a native to the Vegas Valley, I’ve had the privilege to visit Freakling’s haunts annually since my adolescence and it’s been a marvel to watch them grow into what they have become today.

Over the years, the haunts have interchanged to make way for fresh ideas- including the now infamous R-Rated, GATES OF HELL that pushes your anxiety to the brink of terror. And worth noting, your precious nerve endings that will receive the occasional mild electrical shock delivered by some of the sadistically enthusiastic actors. However,  Nosferatu who resides inside the fan-favorite PG Castle Vampyre that has stood on the haunt grounds of the Trilogy for years, is due to take his last flight this Halloween 2019.

I am a little sad to see the haunt lay to rest, however, I’m also intrigued and excited to see what twisted brainchild of the Mollners’ comes to fruition in the 2020 haunt season. So if you’re in the Vegas area, or plan on visiting the city this October, make sure to pay your respects to “DEATH OF THE VAMPYRE” and bid farewell to Nosferatu, Vampyra, Drucilla, Shadow, and all the other vamp inhabitants of Castle Vampyre!

New Ride and Cafe Details Emerge From Upcoming Mega Attraction Jurassic World: The Ride at Universal Hollywood

A few days ago, I took my faithful every-10-years-or-so trip to Universal Studios, Hollywood to bask in the glory of my inner passion for cinema and film culture. I was 12 the first go-around and I’ll never forget the true Kodak moments (seriously, there are photos of it somewhere lost in my hoarder piles of ticket stubs) of meeting Dracula, the long-gone Beetlejuice show, and seeing JAWS along with the once upon time animatronic of King Kong on the Studio Tour for the first time.

Good times fellas. Good times inhaling that banana breath.

The second time around was in 2008 on my honeymoon with my husband. It was during Christmas Time and the park was decked out in Whoville and Grinchmas attire. It was also the first time I had feasted my eye peelers on the Jurassic Park ride! Of course, it was too cold and late in the day so we couldn’t get on it and this third time around- which was just a week ago- again I’m foiled into experiencing any dino drama. As the Jurassic Park turned World ride has yet to open to the public with still only an opening date of, “this summer.” Progress seems to be booming and nearly done, but my son here in the slideshow shows how I feel too about not being able to experience this wondrous attraction. A bit of a pout session is validated as again- I don’t get to go often.

Please note I’m VERY EXCITED about playing with Raptors in the future.

 

Anyway enough of my ramblings and onto why you’re here. Upon my visit, Universal Studios Entertainment sent me a bit of an update today on the highly anticipated ride on a couple of cool attraction features, the awesome new retail store, along with the new cafe and Isla-Nu-Bar that is going to add to the ambiance in nature of a true JP/JW fan experience.

Per Universal Studios:

Universal City, CA, June 17, 2019 – Costa Rican-inspired cuisine and flavorful Tiki cocktails served at Jurassic Café and all-new tropical Isla Nu-bar add to the dynamic guest experience as part of Universal Studios Hollywood’s new mega attraction opening this summer, “Jurassic World—The Ride,” based on the JURASSIC WORLD blockbuster films.

            Along with an array of souvenir collectible, limited edition and one-of-a-kind dimensional dinosaur sculptures from the Jurassic Outfitters store, guests can savor a piece of this exciting thrill ride even after they’ve gone home.

Borrowing its name from the fictitious Central American island in the JURASSIC WORLD movies, the stand-alone, open-air Isla Nu-bar, complete with a thatched roof, serves up tropical-themed Tiki cocktails in three collectible cups:  Etched Tiki, Bamboo-styled Tiki and Tiki God.

Whether blended or made-to-order with fresh juices, every aromatic blended drink is adorned with a pineapple leaf and edible orchid flower.  Flavorable beverages include Tropical Margarita, Piña Colada and Painkiller, along with island cocktails such as Tiki Tai, Bird of Paradise, Ti Peach, Rum Runner and Mai Tai.

With Universal Studios Hollywood’s Executive Chef Marie Grimm at the helm, the new Jurassic Café caters to a selection of Costa Rican-themed cuisine, inspired by the location of the JURASSIC WORLD movies.  Mouth-watering menu items include Sweet Corn Cakes with Slow Roasted Mojo Pork or Spicy Mojo Jackfruit, Citrus Glazed Chicken, Fresh Roasted Red Snapper and Isla Burger. Tempting starters include savory Chorizo and Potato Empanadas, Crispy Lettuce Leaf Roll with Shrimp, Tropical Fruit Salad and Pomegranate Guacamole with plantain chips.  All entrees will be accompanied by fresh green papaya salad and Costa Rica’s national dish, Gallo Pinto – traditional rice and beans.

The Jurassic Outfitters store will feature a variety of collectible merchandise to commemorate the ride’s opening, including a selection of exclusive items. From limited edition t-shirts and hats to drinkware, pins, amber stones, and jewelry, Jurassic Outfitters will offer keepsake merchandise for every member of the family.

The shop will also carry a variety of custom-made, high-end collectible dinosaur sculptures and maquettes. These incredibly crafted statement pieces replicate the Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Dilophosaurus, Styracosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus and Triceratops and range in price up to $1,000.

In addition to experiencing the exhilaration of the new thrill ride, guests will have the opportunity to become immortalized in one of the ride’s momentous scenes as they plunge down its treacherous 84-foot waterfall with the introduction of slo-mo video capture offered exclusively at “Jurassic World—The Ride.”  The iconic moment will be available for purchase and received digitally for riders to share via their social media platforms so they assure their friends that they indeed survived the vicious dinosaurs. Keepsake digital images will also be available for purchase.

“Jurassic World—The Ride” features an original storyline that will take guests on a breathtaking excursion through the theme park as depicted in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s film, JURASSIC WORLD.  It will soar to new heights with the addition of iconic dinosaurs from the movie, including the colossal Indominus rex and the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus in her natural habitat.  The ride also features the stars of the JURASSIC WORLD films – Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong who reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu.

The mega-attraction captures the essence of the blockbuster movies and comes to life in collaboration with the award-winning and inspired minds at Universal Creative, the Academy Award®-winning special-effects visionaries at Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucasfilm, Ltd., Universal Pictures and acclaimed filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow and Frank Marshall.

When “Jurassic World—The Ride” opens this summer, guests will be welcomed to a dramatically reimagined space reflective of the hit films.  A fresh entry statement, stonework landscaping, and a contemporary redesign of the iconic JURASSIC WORLD gates, illuminated with billowing flames, will create the framework for the all-new aesthetics.

 

And now I have to break my 10-year tradition because I literally can’t wait that long to see this. I just want to give Blue a hug and drink a Tiki cocktail.

With so much to see and do at Universal Studios Hollywood, the new California Neighbor Pass invites guests to experience 175 days of fun for $149 when purchased online. Visit www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com for more details. Blackout dates and restrictions apply.

Shudder Greenlights Another Season of “The Last Drive-In”

Though it seemed a foregone conclusion, ardent followers of Joe Bob Briggs, otherwise and affectionately known as the Mutant Family anxiously sat on the edge of its collective seat with just one week remaining of the Friday night double features that began on March 29.

Today, Shudder put those fears to rest with the announcement that The Last Drive-In had been renewed for a second season.

“From our first marathon and subsequent specials in 2018, through this year’s series, Shudder members have been loud and clear: we can never have too much Joe Bob,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “We have read every tweet, every email, and every Facebook comment crying out for more. Message received. Joe Bob will be back.”

The Drive-In Jedi himself weighed in on the outpouring of support and love received from that #MutantFam.

“It hasn’t even been a full year since the 24-hour Last Drive-In marathon, but since then I’ve made thousands of new friends and reconnected with thousands of old ones,” said Briggs. “The main reason I’m coming back to do another season is that this community of horror fans is greater than the sum of its parts, and it’s about something larger than horror. Don’t ask me what that thing is, but it’s a source of great joy to me.”

The initial Last Drive-In marathon streamed on Friday, July 13 of last year, and was followed by a pair of holiday events–“Dinners of Death” on Thanksgiving, and “A Very Joe Bob Christmas”–and the weekly program began a little more than three months later.

From cult films like C.H.U.D., WOLF COP and THE STUFF to classics like THE CHANGELING and HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER and eclectic titles like A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, The Last Drive-In double features have dominated social media, with the likes of Larry Cohen and CASTLE FREAK trending on Twitter.

A date for The Last Drive-In’s second season is yet to be determined, but will continue its double feature live stream format when the series returns.

More information to follow as it becomes available.

MGM Drops Teaser Trailer For The Addams Family

Kind of hard to not snap your fingers whenever you hear that nostalgic tune of gloriousness.

As you may or may not have heard, The Addams Family have been on the heels of a theatrical comeback per MGM last year when the project was first announced. Much to both dismay and welcoming of fans as the film was to project America’s favorite creepy and kooky fam in ye’ faithful animated form- as depicted by creator Charles Addams in the form of cartoon panels first appearing in The New Yorker magazine back in 1938.

Once the cartoon strips adapted into physical media in 1964 (the boob tube), Gomez, Morticia, Cousin Itt and the rest of the clan were launched into superstardom with their stories continuing for the next 50 years with live-action films, Saturday morning cartoons, and even a cereal to boot. Bonus points if you still have the Uncle Fester flashlight! And now here we are 2019, and the gothic family has no signs of slowing down with a return of the visional animation roots in of which the black seeds were planted.

 

Directors: Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan
Producers: Gail Berman, Conrad Vernon, Alex Schwartz, Alison O’Brien
Executive Producers: Kevin Miserocchi, Andrew Mittman, Joe Earley
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn
Wolfhard, Nick Kroll with Bette Midler and Allison Janney

Orion Pictures Releases First Trailer For Child’s Play Reboot!

Today, Orion Pictures came through as promised as I teased a few days ago that they had sent me, and fellow media outlets, a teaser that a full trailer was coming for the upcoming Child’s Play reboot. And man, oh man… Chucky, is feeling more terrifying than ever in this modern take on “Best Friends ’till the End.”

From director Lars Klevberg, the rated-R CHILD’S PLAY stars Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, and Brian Tyree Henry and is produced by Seth Graham-Smith (Stephen King’s IT & Chapter 2) and David Katzenberg (IT: Chapter 2).

Official Synopsis:

A contemporary re-imagining of the 1988 horror classic, CHILD’S PLAY follows Karen (Aubrey Plaza), a single mother who gifts her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature.

 

 

Child’s Play and Chucky is set to slash its way into theaters on June 21, 2019.

{Video} Kaslan Corporation Teases Buddi’s Reveal For Child’s Play Remake

In case you’ve been living under some sort of rock, a full-on Child’s Play remake is coming our way, June 21st, 2019. While many fans of the franchise have mixed feelings about the reboot that features an all-new spin on the homicidal Good Guy Brad Dourif and Don Mancini made infamous- especially since the legend of Chucky is anything but dead with a TV series in the works- that isn’t stopping MGM and Orion studios from modernizing the plastic nightmare for a new generation. And to speak plainly here, in a world that almost solely relies on technology, it actually makes a lot of sense here. In lieu of the Good Guy that famously utters “three different sentences”, we now have Buddi that includes features of a “Highly intricate cloud-backed voice recognition engine capable of identifying speech and comprehension of inflection, tonality and subtle variations in the human voice.” Along with the “Ability to learn from human interaction and via 20 sensors and cameras that provide real-time information about its environment.”

Now that sounds kind of terrifying.

This morning, I received an intriguing press release on an upcoming reveal of said Buddi doll, which you can learn more about over at BestBuddi.com.

Consumers have been living with AI assistants in their homes for nearly eight years with the introduction of Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and other devices. You can ask AI assistants to play a song, provide directions, forecast the weather, turn off your house lights and much more. But to date, a true relationship building opportunity with AI has been outside the bounds of imagination.
Until now.
“The leap we’re making beyond any current AI technology presents a similar gulf between the calculator and the most advanced smartphone assistants. Buddi® is where we’ve all been headed in the field of AI, and I’m proud to say that Kaslan Corporation is bringing that future into the homes of families across the world,” said Henry Kaslan, founder/CEO of Kaslan Corporation.
