Firefly Family sequel finally?

devils reject

So Rob Zombie came out a few days ago and said we were going to be getting a sequel to arguably the best movie he ever did, The Devil’s Rejects, or the concluding chapter of the Firefly Family’s trilogy. Now I have a sorted relationship with Zombie’s work: I loved his earlier music, wasn’t a fan of House of 1000 Corpses, loved Devil’s Rejects, appreciated aspects of his remake of Halloween but hated the ever loving shit out of 2. I stopped after that.

Now I gotta say, this news confused the shit out of me. Devil’s Rejects ended perfectly. Everyone died, the ending was sad but fitting. So my my first thought was, hey maybe it’s a prequel? But that doesn’t seem to be the case. So here’s my question, how the hell do you continue where Reject’s left off if all of you’re principle characters are dead? I have no idea. Personally, I think Rob Zombie should leave well enough alone. I felt he had a similar problem with Halloween; if the story ended with just the first, the story itself would’ve been much more effective on a whole. Halloween 2 muddied the waters and made me hate the first movie for a long time. I fear the same could happen with a Rejects sequel. But, I’m just me. I hope Zombie pulls it off and it’s awesome. Thank you as always and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

5 of my favorite monsters (Torsten edition)

I gotta give my partner and big brother Savior credit, he did a countdown of his favorite monsters that was pretty cool. So I thought I’d take a jump into the fray and talk about some of my favorites as well. In  no particular order, though if you followed my work so far you may know I got a undying love for 1 in particular, so let’s begin with them.

alien c1 1 Xenomorph (Alien)- what can I say except that no creature in my mind represents beauty and dread like the creature ripped from Giger’s nightmarish design, the perfect organism.

werewolf 2. Werewolf- tragic beasts that are man by day and monsters by night. My attraction to these creatures is that it is totally beyond there control; they are as much victims as those they slaughter. Also, they look epic and weren’t they a bitchin part of Skyrim?

necromorph 3. Necromorph (Dead Space trilogy)- how do we make zombies scary again? Mix them with the sporadic nature of Carpenter’s Thing and put the bastards in space. Always in various fucked up forms, Necromorphs are a flexible zombie alternative to haunt your dreams.

nemesis 4. Nemesis (Resident Evil 3)- speaking of zombie alternatives, how about a zombie on steroids in a trench coat with long tentacles, a rocket launcher, and a screw you attitude. Also I forgot to mention, he doesn’t go down at all. Almost nothing stops this behemoth.

Frankenstein 5. Frankenstein’s monster- a classic, tragic beast constructed from the dead body parts stolen by a young man curious about life and death. The monster has been brought to life many times but I can’t help but be fascinated by the idea and he is pretty epic in the book, a Karloff was amazing.
