Patrick Swayze: 1952-2009

I was watching Chelsea Lately, last night, when I heard the news that Patrick Swayze had passed away. I knew he had long been battling pancreatic cancer, and that he fought hard. I was honestly heart broken to hear this. In fact it shocked me, chilled me, and made me tear up. He died at 56, far too young.

I know most girls like to remember him for Dirty Dancing, a film I could give a flying fuck about. But, I will remember him for the action films he did, and because he came off as a good human being.

I guess the first time I saw him was in Red Dawn. I ain't seen it years, but I recall loving this tale of teens battling evil Russians who take over America. I hear this one was considered pretty violent upon it's release. Which is weird considering it is rated PG-13. I will have to revisit someday.

I next saw him in Next of Kin. I recall very little about this movie, expect I liked it as a kid. And, that some guy dies in a room full of snakes or something. Snakes and Swayze kick ass!

This next film, to me, will always be his best: Road House! I saw it on video and loved it. Playing a bouncer in a rowdy bar in bar where an asshole (Ben Gazzara) runs everything, he kicks some major ass. This movie had it all, fighting, boozing, a naked and beautiful Kelly Lynch , pro-wrestler Terry Funk as a thug, Sam Elliot, and throat ripping!!!!!!!! Fucking awesome! About two weeks ago I finally bought the movie on DVD. Can't wait to revisit it.

The other film of his I like is Point Break. Director Katherine (Near Dark) Bigelow makes a solid action movie here. While, it has to much surfing for me to truly love, it is really fun, has some great action, is nicely shot, has some nudity, and Swayze is just awesome as the villain. I wish he would have played a bad guy more often.

So, those are the films of his I like. He will always be remembered, by me, thanks to these movies. God bless him and may he RIP. Patrick Swayze, you will be greatly missed.

I Am the Co-Administrator at the Gorezone.net Forums!

Recently, Kim "Arcvile" Dubuisson, my friend, site administrator, and founder of the longest running and absolute best horror website on the net, Gorezone.net, made me the co-administrator of the site's message boards. I am very grateful for this and look forward to it.

I first joined the Gorezone back in 2001 (maybe even 2000), and it quickly became one of my favorite sites to visit. In particular the message boards, which where/ are a welcome change from much of the immature and stupid conduct that so many sites suffer from. It's great to have a site where intelligent and fun discussions on horror, but also on music, video games, comics, pro-wrestling, etc, occur. I have made many friends on the message board, as well.

Anyways, I would go on to write reviews, interviews, and reports for the site. And, now being co-admin of the best damn message board on the net is be a pleasure and an honor. You guys should stop by and check it out. I know you will be more than pleased. You can find me, on the boards, under the name Headbanger69.

And, thank you Kim, my good friend, for giving me this chance.

The 10 Best Killer Animal Horror Movies

I was watching Mega-Shark vs. Giant Octopus, on Syfy the other day. The trailer was all over the net, but the movie itself, despite some funny moments and Debbie Gibson, was fish poo. It got me to think how many horribly crappy killer animal horror films there are, especially on Syfy. Almost all of these films are takes on the Jaws mythos, to one point or another. But, there are good ones, and this list is comprised of my favorites. Many of these films hold special places in my heart, as I do love animals (before I ever wanted to get into film, I wanted to be a veterinarian). And, a bunch of them are among the first horror movies, I ever got into.

10. - This wonderful campy, gory, and exploitative film is a masterpiece of so bad so good. A great time to be had, this one is wonderfully silly, with some truly priceless dialogue. From the director of Pieces, no less!

9. - The premise and plot of this one is pretty silly and preposterous. But, it doe shave some great acting from the cast and a truly beautiful score by Ennio Morricone. Charlotte Rampling and Bo Derek make for some easy on the eyes beauties. What is really cool, is that the killer whale, taking revenge for the death of his mate and their unborn child, could be seen in some ways, as the hero, or anti-hero, as it maybe. Basically a revenge film with a killer animal.

8. - When a dog is genetically engineered as the optimal killer, all hell break loose. Great acting from the cast, including Lance Henriksen and Allie Sheedy, an inspired script, and some really wild and cool set-pieces (including the dog going up a tree to eat a cat and the dog raping a female dog) make for a fun and enjoyable sci-fi/ horror flick. As a dog lover I really enjoy the fact that the dog attacks people who deserve it, making him, like Orca, a hero of sorts.

7. - I used to watch this one as a kid, any time it was on TV. And, it still holds up. Sure it starts off slow, but the climax is great and scenes of worms crawling out of faucets, biting people, and being all over people's house is truly nightmarish. Guaranteed to make your skin crawl and stomach churn. From underrated director Jeff Lieberman.

6. - Like so many of the films here, I used to watch this anytime it was on TV. When, an alligator baby is flushed down the toilet, it grows up to be a vicious killer. Featuring rousing and violent alligator attacks highlight, this one is a fun cult classic. You just gotta love it!

5. - This one is so damn good, that Steven Spielberg, himself, declared it his favorite Jaws rip-off, and picked Joe Dante to direct horror/ comedy Gremlins. The exciting and bloody attacks and the over all fun feel of the movie, does indeed make it the best of those movies. The sequel, from James Cameron which has flying piranha (!), is worth seeing, too.

4. - Perhaps the first of the killer animal sub-genre, this one maybe very slow to start, but Hitchcock's masterful tale of our avian friends going psycho (no pun intended) remains one of the very best. Lovely Tippi Hedren and the rest of the cast are great, and once it gets going, this one really rips. The attacks on the school and the gas station, the suspenseful climax, and creepy endings attack is fucking unforgettable.

3. - Loosely inspired by true events, this is one of the scariest movies I seen in this decade, so far. Well directed, suspenseful, nightmarish, and realistic, this movie is, I think, better than The Blair Witch Project (although I do like that movie). The cast is really good and actress Blanchard Ryan is both beautiful, and fully nude! The nihilistic feel of the movie really helps to set apart from the more campy movies on this list. Unarguably the best killer shark movie since Jaws.

2. - My favorite Stephen King book is also my favorite adaption of his work. Nail-biting, intense, and really suspenseful, this one is also highlighted by phenomenal acting from the lovely Dee Wallace Stone. Lewis Teague (who also directed Alligator) crafts a simple but scary film, with some truly jarring attacks, by the rabid dog. A personal favorite.

1. - I guess declaring this one the best killer animal film is a no brainer, but really how can it not be? Frequently ripped-off, this is one of the most influential horror films ever. A perfect film and a favorite of mine since my childhood.

Hot Asian Girl of the Month- Jada Cheng

Ahh, September, it marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It might meaning going back to school for some of you. But, regardless of what it signifies to you I am sure that you will find my pick for Hot Asian Girl of the Month to be smoldering and sexy: Jada Cheng!!!!!!!!

This 23 year old beauty was born in Corona, Queens (actually not to far away from my old neighborhood). At 16 she lived in Hong Kong, China for two years, where she became a resident and an English Professor andEnglish-Chinese Interpreter. She worked with people ranging from kindergarten kids to adults. Damn, I wish I had teachers that looked like her! She also stayed in Seoul, Korea for a short time. This multi-talented beauty is fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Fuzhounese (these are, by the way, Chinese dialects), and English.

In 2005, she came back to New York, then a month later headed to Georgia, where she started her modeling career.

She works the Import Model circuit. And, she is one of the beautiful models for Sassy Assy.

Here she is doing a swimwear model shoot for them:

Another reason I picked her this month is cause she will be at Exxxotica NY this month. She will be, of course, with Sassy Assy. These are some pics I took of her (the second one is me with her) last year at Exxxotica NY.

She's been at Exxxotica Miami, as well:

Here, she is signing an autograph for a lucky fan at the same event:

She's also done appearances at Comic Con.

Jada, who has also been featured on Dr. 90210, is very active on the net, as well. You can find her on Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter. She has some of the most amazing Myspace and Facebook pics around, and I simply love her tweets on Twitter! She's just simply awesome! Of course, she also has her own website, where you can order her merchandise.

Jada is so sexy that mere words don't do her justice. Her beautiful face and impressive body leave anyone breathless. Her pictures are some of the sexiest on the net. Without a shadow of a doubt, Jada Cheng is, literally and figuratively, one of the hottest models, ever!
