October’s Best Horror Offerings From Brittani ~ The Ghoul You Want (Derrrrp)

Silent Hill Toronto Locations…even THAT is creepy!


If you need help getting your horror fix this month, look no further! There are plenty of movies and marathons to keep you scared, but if you’re not into monsters and serial killers, there’s always the presidential debates.

Sinister’ starring Ethan Hawke opens this weekend and it has been getting surprisingly good reviews. The plot is familiar, the Oswald family moves into a house where a number of murders happened. Instead of leaving, dad Ellison decides to found out what happened to the slaughtered family that lived there before them. A true crime novelist, Hawke’s character can’t help himself, and digging around in the attic he finds tapes of the murders committed by an entity named Bagul, or Mr. Boogie. The movie promises lots of good scares and it’s villain is sure to haunt your nightmares.

Paranormal Activity 4′ opens October 19. There have been 4 of these movies in the past 5 years, and although I don’t get the hype around them, they have a strong following and this one leaves the possibly leaves the door open for a spin-off series. A sequel to ‘Paranormal Activity 2,’ it takes place five years after the events of that film when Katie kidnapped Hunter. They move next door to new characters Alice, her family and boyfriend Alex and then, well if you’ve seen the first three then you know happens.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ opens October 26. A sequel to the creeptastic and underrated ‘Silent Hill,’ this follows Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemons) as she discovers on her 18th birthday that she isn’t who she thought she was, and seeks to find her true identity in the town of Silent Hill. Sean Bean, who might die in this one,  Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger return from the first film. Rounding out the cast are Carrie-Ann Moss who plays the leader of a cult and Kit Harrington, a man also trapped in Silent Hill’s alternate universe. (Don’t forget to check out our behind-the-scenes photos from the super-creepy Silent Hill locations–seriously, scroll down on this link!)

If you’re looking for something a little less gory, you can check out the classic ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘The Bride of Frankenstein‘ on October 24th in select theaters nationwide. The newly restored movies are introduced by TCM host Robert Osborne presenting interviews conducted at this year’s “TCM Classic Film Festival” with Boris Karloff‘s daughter Sara and Bela Lugosi, Jr.. Award winning makeup artist Rick Baker also joins the conversation to talk about how the legendary icons and the monsters they played influenced his work and the horror genre.

If you’re like me and hate leaving the house when it’s not absolutely necessary, there are plenty of new dvd releases and movies to catch on TV.

The much talked about ‘V/H/S’ got mixed reviews from critics and viewers, but you can judge the movie for yourself by catching it on Amazon Instant Video and iTunes.

American Horror Story: The Complete First Season’ is now on DVD and Blu-ray. Season 2, Titled ‘Asylum’ starts Wednesday night on FX at 10 p.m. Check out the first five NSFW minutes on the show’s official Facebook page.


Season 3 of ‘The Walking Dead’ starts Sunday night on AMC at 10 p.m. To get prepared for the season premiere, watch TWD’s  4 webisodes featuring some suspicious survivors at the show’s official site. Don’t forget that ‘The Talking Dead’ hosted by Chris Hardwicke also returns this Sunday after TWD’s premiere.

AMC also kicks off it’s annual “Fear Fest” from October 13-31. It will be hosted by Kevin Smith this year, boo, but you can expect to see all of your favorite horror villains including Michael Meyers and Jason Voorhies and many of King of Scream Stephen King‘s movies like ‘The Dead Zone‘ and “Thinner.’ 

SyFy‘s  “31 Days of Halloween” is already underway. The channel will be ending the month with it’s ‘Ghost Hunters’ marathon and a live edition of it’s SFX competition show ‘Face Off.’ Check here for the full schedule of movies and shows.

Chiller will be premiering new movies to the channel all month. ‘Dead Souls’ starts on Friday, and ‘Hush‘ premiers on October 19. If you’ve ever wanted to know about the lives of haunted house enthusiasts, and I ask you why, then you’ll want to check out the documentary ‘The American Scream.’ It follows the lives of people who wish that it could be Halloween all year long. The movie premiers on Sunday October 28. Take a look!

Looking for something a little more tame for kids, or the scaredy cats, there is ABC Family‘s “13 Nights of Halloween” beginning on October 19. ‘Hocus Pocus’ is always a sure thing, but the network added some newer movies to it’s annual fest with ‘Coraline’ and ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.’ You can also expect Halloween themed episode of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ and ‘Switched At Birth.’ Check out the schedule!


The HUB network has a gem in ‘R. L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.’ It reminds me a lot of shows I grew up with like ‘Are You Afraid of The Dark‘ and ‘Goosebumps‘ which was also based on Stine’s work. A lot of the stories are genuinely creepy and it will premiere it’s 3rd season this Saturday at 6 p.m. with a two-part episode with “bite.” Here is the preview featuring Christopher Lloyd as “Grandpire.”

We bloody LOVE this time of year at Dipped in Cream!

‘Excision’ Red Band Trailer *Warning* Kinda Gross – Annalynn McCord, Traci Lords and John Waters


GOTdammit, Alex.  I blame my son for making me root around websites I normally wouldn’t look at–and let me tell you, I LIKE being the one finally getting to place blame on my sons.  Ahhh…it’s so, well,  FREEING. (Snort!) Let’s hear it for Son Blaming!!!

If you’re willing to be thoroughly a little bit grossed-out…feel free to watch this trailer.  Would it make it better knowing that the classic Nine Inch Nails song “Closer”  is played throughout the trailer?  Yep!  That’s what I thought.

Film Summary: A disturbed and delusional high school student with aspirations of a career in medicine goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother.


So?? What do we think? Here. I’ll let these gals say it for you:

C’MON!! John Waters?? Traci Lords??  It’s got to be good, right? RIGHT?? ANSWER ME!

Oh, sorry.


Please don’t think less of me for writing about the horror film, The Human Centipede

The Human Centipede

I’ve been holding onto this post for one solid week.  I just haven’t been able to push the “Publish” button, for fear of losing every single one of you, my Precious Readers.  Just stay with me for a second, okay?  I have to purge.  There’s this…movie.  I truly don’t think I’ll be able to watch it (if it were even showing anywhere ’round these parts), but I have a weird fascination with the whole Evil Scientist thing…and “The Human Centipede” takes the cake.

via Fangoria.com

“During a stopover in Germany in the middle of a carefree road trip through Europe, two American girls find themselves alone at night when their car breaks down in the woods. Searching for help at a nearby villa, they are wooed into the clutches of a deranged retired surgeon who explains his mad scientific vision to his captives’ utter horror. They are to be the subjects of his sick lifetime fantasy: to be the first to connect people, one to the next, via their gastric system, and in doing so bring to life “the human centipede.”

Okay.  THAT was a very tame synopsis of what this movie depicts.  MILD, even.  I’m really at odds with myself in terms of even posting a blog about this movie.  Clearly, only the fringe-iest of the fringe will actually see this barfness.   What I wanna know is, WHY am I so obsessed with this crazy thing?  I can’t stop watching the trailer or reading reviews…many of which are well, glowing!  (Granted, most of the reviewers are freaky-assed horror “stans” (skalker-fans”) of the genre.

For me, it all started with THIS:

“Water, Water, Every Hare”…Warner Brothers.

Dieter Laser. That's the German actor's REAL NAME. Even his LAB COAT is creepy.

“If an INterestin’ monster can’t have an INterestin’ hairdo….” This has been my FAVORITE Bugs Bunny cartoon since I was little. I used to want to BE the “E-villll Scientist” when I was a tiny girl watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. (Calling all Psych majors!) Then as an adult, “Ren and Stimpy” became my animated characters, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

Seriously. Do NOT watch this movie trailer. Just DON’T.

Please don’t hate me because I’m a freak. I swear I won’t I won’t see it. I won’t. But if YOU do see it?  Send me a well-thought out review.
