As you’ve noticed, I haven’t made any new posts since the new year. Aside from working out, my job, and DC Universe Online, mainly because of an Arizona Green Tea spill on my Toshiba laptop. But I managed to buy another one.

I took a break from blogging to pursue my other interests like screenwriting. I’m currently working on a first draft for a horror movie called, “Werefoo of China” on Plotbot, which is the Facebook for screenwriters.

My favorite monster is The Lycanthrope. Man transforming into animal, the inner beast, etc. I’m using the original Wolf Man (there is no remake) and American Werewolf in London (this image still gives me the creeps) for references. I’m also planing on making a production diary.

Speaking of remakes, I saw Fright Night. Considering branding is really big in Hollywood right now and (having found this out right now) Craig Gillespie directed the notorious Mr. Woodcock, I expected pure bullcrap. But for once in a very long time since Cronenberg’s The Fly and Carpenter’s The Thing, it was actually a new version done right.

Unlike Nightmare on Elm Street (where they brought the implication that Freddy Krueger was a pedifile to the forefront, hired a music video director, and completely disregard the character’s mythology for mindless slashing), Tom Holland (director of the 1985 original) was involved with the story along with Marti Noxon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) penning the script. So, It’s the best of both worlds.

But outside of the performances of Roddy McDowall (voice of Mad Hatter from Batman: The Animated Series) and Chris Sarandon (who makes a cameo appearance in the new one), it doesn’t have much rewatchablity. I do find Evil Ed (played by Stephen Geoffreys) obnoxious, McGlovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) is passable.

But all that aside, this doesn’t mean the website is done for. It’s just on hiatus for now.
