HOUSEBOUND

2015-02-22-21-01-10-930522818

Housebound is a New Zealand horror comedy released in 2014.

2015-02-22-21-00-02-1364339566Morgana O’Reilly stars as Kylie a young woman who is sentenced to house arrest for blowing up ATMs. The house she is stuck in for eight months  is her mother’s (my worst nightmare). She has an excessively antagonistic relationship with her mom so things are already strained between them prior to her house arrest. Once she is back at the house she spends her days laying around eating, watching  tv and trashing the place  (sounds like me). She is belligerent, refuses to help out and becomes annoyed (Ed Note: that sounds more like you) by her mother’s ramblings about the house being haunted.

images-6Soon enough these ghosts make their presence known to her and she starts to think her mom may not be so crazy after all. Luckily for Kylie, the home security guard assigned to monitor her activities has some ghost hunting knowledge and the two set off to discover what is going bump in the night!

I won’t give any more details as I hate spoilers but some pretty entertaining hijinks ensue in their quest to find the truth. Housebound is a fun film with non stop action, thrills, gore, and dry humor. The acting was strong and there were several twists and turns I didn’t see coming. Although there were some odd plot developments it was an original storyline. If you like some gore mixed in with your thrills, chills, and Scooby-Doo sleuthing check out Housebound available to stream on Amazon.

Episode 133: Amityville – The New Generation

220px-Amityville_New_GenerationWith a title like that, you would expect a new generation of people to move into the old Amityville House.  You’d be wrong.  The Amityville House is not in the movie.  Nor is Amitvyille.  Yep, its another “haunted item” movie.  This time instead of a clock or a lamp, it’s the ever popular mirror.  Join Ron and Little Miss Horror Nerd as they take a look at the seventh installment in the Amityville franchise, The New Generation.  In this episode they will discuss Ron’s theory that this script was not written as an Amitvyille movie, possibilities the franchise could have taken, share stories about pissing themselves and talk the many movies of Lin Shaye.

Captain Action’s Nemesis Dr. Evil!

3

Dr. Evil was introduced in 1968 with the third wave of Captain Action releases, and as “the sinister invader of Earth,” he was dead-set on undoing all the good that our pal Captain Action worked so hard to uphold.

7Dr. Evil, was the picture of terror and EVIL incarnate – with bulging, red blood shot veiny eyes, pointy ears, an exposed, CREEPY brain and ghastly blue skin. To add to the insanity, Dr. Evil came with a satin hippy like costume with a Nehru collar, a starburst medallion attached to a chunky gold chain, and a pair of dark blue sandals – all of which gave him a lounge-lizard sort of vibe that was a huge hit at the time.

But like Captain Action, Dr. Evil could easily disguise himself – making him all the more wily. His two favorite alter egos were Dr. Thorpe and Dr. Ling – one Western persona and one Asian. The Dr. Thorpe face mask featured a benevolent-appearing, bearded gentleman utterly opposite from the grotesque alien. The Dr. Ling mask came with a white lab coat that could be used when masquerading one of the good doctors.

streakDr. Evil had many evil evil evil EVIL things – including a thought sensor, a laser gun, a sonic reducer, a large, horrific hypnotic eye, and an ionized hypo – a ray-gun like hypodermic needle that could incur all variety of evil damage.

As a kid, I couldn’t get enough of Captain Action (who could, with the change of a mask and costume become any one of a bunch of Super Heros. like The Green Hornet, Spiderman, Aquaman, Batman etc etc…) You could also get the insanely cool Silver Streak Vehicle! IT ROCKED! And the BEST part was Dr. EVIL! I soooooooo Love an Evil Doctor that spreads EVIL at every turn!

UGLY STICKERS!

10

Topps Ugly Stickers! I LOVE these stickers! I would plaster everything in sight with them! My bed for example no longer resembled a bed, it was loaded in these stickers and any other cool sticker I could find!

12Each card has an amazingly detailed painting of an offbeat creature. They were just plain weird and FUN and definitely the kind of thing all of us kids wanted! The Topps Cards feature the artwork of Norm Saunders, Wally Wood and Basil Wolverton.

Every kid I knew had ‘em! The best part was that they had names for all of them! It was tough to find your name but I was always psyched that they had my name! I couldn’t get enough of these great creatures! There was even rubber uglies that looked very much like these cards. They sold them in bubble gum machines etc…That’s how large this ugly sticker explosion got! THEY WERE EVERYWHERE!7

Topps trading cards were originally printed in 1965 with additional releases and modified sets through 1976. Each slobbering, rotting monstrosity was available with one to four name variations! These cards were GLORIOUSLY GROSS and you NEEDED to get every one!
