WATCH ‘BATMAN: DYING IS EASY’ HERE. BEST ADAPTATION IN A WHILE

I know I’m on a huge Batman kick now, either that or you all are just noticing my fascination with this character. He’s my all-time favorite superhero and now is the best time to be a fan.

With so many great cinematic epics under the Bat’s name and many more in the making as we speak fans have a lot to look forward to.

But Batman is a character truly blest with the best writers and artists. As long as they stay faithful to the lore they can re-invent the mythos for whole new generations and see the Dark Knight legend grow. From recent comic stories, video games, and movies the Batman is a triumph.

More recently a fan-made short film was just released and it’s taking no prisoners. It’s a call back to old motifs and stays true to the classic stories that we grew up loving, no, more like feeding our obsessions with.

With a surprising cast of fan-favorite actors taking on classic Gothamites, a stellar atmosphere that truly captures the feel of the comic book world of the Batman, and costumes, makeup, effects, and acting to rival a Hollywood production I can honestly say this is the best interpretation of the comics I’ve seen in a long time.

As I said there are some great callbacks to ’80-‘90s era Batman in this and to get a feeling for what I’m talking about click here and see all the dastardly things Joker has done over the years. In the meantime sit back and enjoy Batman: Dying is Easy.

I hear the team behind this project (Bat In The Sun) is planning even more for fans to flip out over. And after seeing what they did with this I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us.

Someone Made An Actual Movie Trailer For the Friday the 13th NES Game and it is GLORIOUS

“You’re dead. Your friends are dead. Your family’s dead. Your fucking pets are being skinned alive. Your mom’s a fucking whore. You suck at life. The whole world hates you. You’re going to Hell. Live with it. Game Over.” – Via the ever so wise Nintendo Sensi, James Rolfe.

He wasn’t wrong you know. Although the original Friday the 13th game for the Nintendo Entertainment System seemed like a horror fan’s 8-bit wet dream, the frustration of gameplay quickly softened any prepubescent boners we may have had going into this pixelated LJN nightmare. I would never refer to it as a giant piece of donkey shit like some may have dubbed it, but the game itself is a goddamn pain in the ass for sure to get through without blowing your blood pressure out of range.

Anyway, today being the 13th of Friday here at Nightmare Nostalgia, I figured now is as a good as time as ever to showcase something that any fan of the NES game would appreciate the Holy Pixels out of. Youtube channel Mega64 brought about this hilarious fanmade movie trailer back in 2015 of you guessed it-Friday the 13th The Game The Movie. And it is goddamn gloriously nostalgic from those days of throwing ineffective knives at zombies and flying Pamela Voorhees rotting heads. Complete with VHS static to give it that retro feel, the fanmade trailer nails every aspect of the game that we love to bitch about endlessly. They even throw in the old joke of Jason’s machete looking like a giant toothbrush gag.

It doesn’t really get any better than that folks. Happy Friday the 13th campers!
