Horror’s Not Dead … In London!

Posted by Peter Hall - July 8th 2007 @ 12:45 pm

Well, technically not London, but Reading.  Or, even more specifically, Caversham.  You Brits have way too many names for cities/towns.  My parent’s don’t even have an address, they have a house name.  You’ve no idea how to confuse a US postal work until you try to mail a package to an address that has no numbers in it (hell, the zip code alone has 4 letters in it!).  But I digress…

Flying out tonight for work, yet again, but I’ll likely be back very soon considering the US government sure plans things out well.  So…expect a News Re-Cap tomorrow sometime.  Other than that, I make no content promises this time around

    Kind of, but I’m not going to fall for any marketing ARG, too much time for too little output.

    Though these rumors that its all a Lovecraftian Cthulhu invasion (and not ID4 aliens) REALLY has me interested.

    Oh, and an update as to why I haven’t updated (for anyone who cares). Internet at this hotel is an outrageous $1 a minute. Fuck that!

    What sucks is apparently all the cthulthu references are wrong, about Cloverfield.

    yeah, but just because the Ethan Haas stuff is wrong, doesn’t necessarily mean the Lovecraft idea is bogus.

    I mean… it probably is anyway.

    But i guess we’ll just have to wait it out and see.

    IA! IA!

    Who the heck is this Lovecraft guy?

    Seriously though, I’ve never read a bit of his writing. It’s probably b/c I saw The Unnamable when I was a kid and thought if somebody can write a story that terrible there is no way anything else he has done can be good. Obviously, it isn’t his fault his books have been adapted into some of the worst movies ever, but man it really sours him for me. The name “Lovecraft” just gives me a headache of mediocrity.

    Ethan Haas just makes me think of Ethan Hunt and now I want to watch the first Mission Impossible again.

    Lovecraft is the guy who came up with Cthulhu, and things like that.

    He’s to modern horror movies what Poe was to horror stories.
