Killer Rob Movie Review



These devil/demon/exorcism genre of movies always spark my interest. They are the kinds of movies that can really get under your skin. They freak you out while watching them, and these types of horror movies can be very unnerving. Arguably 'The Exorcist' is the scariest movie ever made. Prior to the release of 'The Last Exorcism', the 'Exorcism of Emily Rose' hit theaters to very poor reviews. Everyone had high hopes for Emily Rose, but it was a terrible movie.

All exorcism movies certainly suffer for being made after the superb classic Exorcist. It's almost like no other exorcism movie, or horror movie for that matter, will ever be able to equal up to the 1973 classic.

Stephen King fans are treated to a
cool piece of SciFi Character Art


Thanks to the remake of It, Gerald’s Game, the upcoming Castle Rock, and also The Mist and The Dark Tower, Stephen King is hot in Hollywood again. But just because the film and TV industries are once again taking notice of the legendary writer doesn’t mean that horror and novel fans have ever forgotten him.

Once such fan is artist Jordan Monsell. Titled ‘King Country’, this piece of SciFi Character Art features almost 200 Stephen King references. The main influence is, of course, Stephen King, but Monsell also cites Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel as visual inspirations.

House of the Devil

Dissecting the Complaints About the Film

I read in a interview how the director, Ti West, wanted to make this movie with an 1980's feel to it, but also how the theme of 80's horror movies were made. The star of the movie, Jocelin Donahue (Samantha), wears oldschool jordache jeans, she carries around a clunky SONY walkman, and has an 80's thick wavy hair style. There is also a caption at the beginning of the movie that mentions events that happened in the 80's, but more on that in a bit.

The basic plot of the movie is Samantha takes a babysitting job from strangers to earn rent money. An older couple played by Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov (Mr and Mrs Ulman) have only spoken to Samantha over the phone and given her directions to their home. When Samantha arrives driven by her best friend Megan (Greta Gerwig) to the house to babysit, she is told by the creepy old Mr Ulman that she'll actually be keeping watch on an elderly woman instead. At first reluctant, Samantha agrees to the job for a $400 payday.

I remember watching it, and immediately thinking that when Samantha goes to babysit, and things seem really weird vibe-wise, that she made the classic mistake of allowing her friend to leave, and even more at fault for not getting the hell out herself when she had the chance. Ofcourse if she did trust her instinct and left, then we have no horror movie right?

Killer Rob Movie Review


There are still images in my head from scenes in this movie that won't go away... I wonder if they'll ever go away? This movie was by far the best, most horrible, most disturbing, most gruesome movie I've ever seen. The movie is brilliant, yet totally awful.

I feel like I lost part of my soul that I'll never get back. I swear it feels like the director took whatever remaining innocence that I still had, and left me feeling really uncomfortable and weird ever since watching this masterful piece of cinema....and for that I say "bravo good sir". BTW, "bravo" is a word that the actor who plays the director in the film uses alot so maybe that's why I subliminally just wrote that!

The Art of Gore

Warning: Article contains graphic photos of
zombie make-up that you may find terrifying!


If you've watched a horror film in the past 30 years, there's a good chance Greg Nicotero is the man behind its goriest scenes. He's produced prosthetic effects for hundreds of movies including ‘Pulp Fiction, Hostel, Kill Bill, Sin City’ as well as the hit tv show ‘The Walking Dead.’

Greg's also an integral part of TV show The Walking Dead - working as a producer, director and, of course, make-up artist. Here's his guide to the fine art of splattering blood on screen.

"It's almost like a magic trick," Greg stated, "We're using misdirection, we're using slight of hand and different things."

He's describing the moments of extreme gore he's known for - a limb being pulled off, or a zombie being crushed to death - which he calls "gags".


"It's all about the impact that they have and in many instances it's about the impact that particular moment has on the character in the scene,” Greg added, “So when you see something happen on The Walking Dead - and then we cut to a character's reaction - people very often react to how a character's reacting rather than the thing they've seen."

Best Comic-to-Movie Villain


Jack Nicholson's Joker voted best
comic book movie villain of all time

Jack Nicholson’s 1989 portrayal of The Joker has been voted the best-ever film version of a comic book villain, according to a survey. He narrowly beat out Heath Ledger’s acclaimed 2008 depiction of the same character to claim the top spot, with Batman characters dominating the list. Nicholson’s twisted turn as Batman’s infamous nemesis was selected by 23% of the population, just ahead of Heath Ledger’s performance in Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’. Danny DeVito’s demented rendition of The Penguin in 1992’s 'Batman Returns' came in 3rd place in the poll.

Core Values by Zodiac Sign

What your Zodiac sign says about your values


In life, there are bound to be certain things that hold a heavier weight where you might value their influence and prioritize them over others. Your core values make you who you are. These astrologically-related values determine what steps you take in life, what your goals are, who you wish to surround yourself with, how you want others to perceive you, and even what sexual traits you have. It makes sense that these values would relate back to your personality, and it just so happens you can also look into the zodiac for some clues.

The zodiac has great predictors of certain characteristics and behavioral patterns you'll have based on your sign, and while it's still a generalization and not set in stone, it's worth looking into. You never know, the stars might be on to something. Here are the core values you cherish based on your sign, so read your core value zodiac description and employ it as best that you can into your lifestyle to gain ultimate serenity and success!


Aries: Self-Assertion

Aries have abandonment issues and therefore are forced to discover and defend a self-construct independent of anyone else. It's this awareness of their oneness that drives them to assert themselves in the world, for no one is going to do it for them. Thus, 'looking out for number one' becomes their priority, which gives them the reputation of being self-absorbed in a fiery way. Remember, for all the Aries out there, it's easy to be alone if need be, but still prefer company.


Taurus: Stability

As a grounded Earth sign, a Taurus only believes in that which can be perceived by their senses. They need to feel rooted and secure so they can enjoy their sensual nature to the hilt, otherwise they'll be worrisome and disconnected from their bodies. Plus, you'll like nice things to hold onto. Known for being materialistic, a Taurus love their possessions, as material objects serve as tactile proof of their stability that allows them to let go.

Alien Mummy Diagnosed

Research on an alien mummy discovered in
the Atacama Desert announces new findings


Back in 2003, a strange skeleton was discovered in a deserted Chilean town in the Atacama Desert. Featuring an elongated skull, sunken eye sockets, and an impossibly tiny body, some suggested it was of extraterrestrial origin. An updated genetic analysis confirms the skeleton as being a tiny, mutated human—but with an unprecedented variety of mutations. Preserved by dry desert conditions, “Ata,” as the mummified skeleton is called, is undeniably weird.

It’s only about six inches long, it’s missing a pair of ribs, and it has a highly deformed head and face. Though discovered 15 years ago, the specimen dates back about 40 years, so it’s not ancient. Soon after its discovery, some UFOlogists figured Ata was an alien, featuring it in a short documentary.

Netflix shows to binge-watch
based on your zodiac sign


Zodiac signs can tell us a lot about ourselves, including which television shows to watch! There's so much great content out there right now that many people grab a comfy seat to start binge-watching a popular show. According to a recent survey, approximately 73% of U.S. consumers have 'binge-watched' atleast one television series, watching three or more episodes in one sitting! Some have even done the whole season going from ep1 to ep13 before calling it a day!

With all this amazing content to choose from, one problem can be when you can't decide what to watch after the previously completed series? All caught up with Game of Thrones or Peaky Blinders, no worries because as luck would have it, all you have to do is look to the stars! Here is a list of what to watch on Netflix based on your zodiac sign.

Aries


Aries are initiators. They have big ideas that they immediately go after and never worry about the details. They are enforcers that give off an intense energy. They would enjoy a vigorous, action-packed show like Narcos.


Taurus


Tauruses are very solid in their methods, being all about the processes. They like things to be predictable and enjoy tradition. They have an eye for detail and love luxury. Much like the show The Crown, Tauruses imagine themselves living large up in a castle somewhere.


Gemini


Geminis have both a light side and a dark side. Many would say they would get along well both in our world as well as the Upside Down, so they would enjoy the popular sci-fi series Stranger Things. Geminis are drawn to weird and love things that are not predictable. They believe there are endless possibilities out in the world.

Conspiracies Proven True

Conspiracies that turned out to be true


The past couple of years have seen the resurgence of the conspiracy theorist, but instead of the foil hat wearing, megaphone-wielding whack job of old, the conspiracy theorist of today sits behind a keyboard, uploads controversial videos to youtube, and makes post after post on facebook and twitter trying to expose the mirage of the conspiracy.

From JFK to 9/11 to Sandy Hook, from Las Vegas to Parkland High, major events have transpired but many questions are raised in the process. When proper answers aren’t provided by the authorities, when footage is confiscated or destroyed, and when people related to the events turn up killed or go missing, conspiracy theorists arise to dissect the cover-up.


There are many occasions when real life is just as strange as fiction. From sinister research programs to health-related cover-ups, here are a few examples from the annals of history that sound so extraordinary that they must’ve been cooked up by some conspiracy theorist’s ramblings, but in fact these stories are real.


CIA really did experiment with mind control and psychedelics

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) crops up in many a conspiracy theory, but its shady reputation is not entirely undeserved. Papers released in the seventies revealed the secret service really had been dabbling in mind control, psychological torture, radiation, and electric shock therapy in a series of studies into behavioral modification known as “Project MK-ULTRA”.


The purpose of this research was to develop techniques and substances to use against the Soviet Union and its allies – think truth serums and Bourne-like super agents. More than 150 human experiments took place between 1953 and 1964, many of which involved administering drugs to US citizens without their knowledge and consent, and under no medical supervision.


But things get more sinister. Then CIA Director Richard Helms ordered the destruction of all records relating to MK-ULTRA in 1973, which means there is little evidence of the intelligence services’ nefarious activities around today. We know the research was responsible for at least one hospitalization and two deaths but the true cost could be much higher.

The Universe is Full of Stars

The first TESS photo captures
more than 200 thousand stars


The first test image from one of the four cameras aboard NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) captures a swath of the southern sky along the plane of our galaxy. TESS is expected to cover more than 400 times the amount of sky shown in the image when using all four of its cameras during science operations.

The TESS Satellite, which launched on a mission to find alien worlds circling stars close to the sun, zoomed within about 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) of the moon, NASA officials said. This long-planned "gravity assist" maneuver was designed to help TESS reach its final science orbit, a long and looping path around Earth that no spacecraft has ever occupied before.
