Boo Berry, Eyegore Awards, Halloween Horror Nights and more.

The same exact box as last year? Booooooooo!

Boo Berry is back in stores again, but this year, they didn't even change the box or offer anything new. Even the poster on the back is the exact same as last year! Now, I was about to be completely annoyed with General Mills when I found out that they DID put out something new for Boo Berry this year after all:

Razzle Boo Blitz - Boo Berry and Fruit By The Foot together at last?

Now this is very unexpected... Boo Berry appears to have joined forces with Fruit By The Foot for an all new "Razzle Boo Blitz" flavor. While there's no indication on the box that these are a limited edition flavor, I would stock up on them now while you can because I'm pretty sure they won't be easy to find after Halloween is over with. I haven't found a box of 'em myself and can't comment on the flavor yet, so I'll have to get back to you guys on that one as soon as I find some. Looking forward to eating 3-feet of Boo Berry goodness. (update: after looking more into it, it looks like GM just slapped Boo Berry's face on a Fruit By The Foot flavor that's already been around for a while.)

But as far as the cereal boxes go, come on General Mills... we wait all year long for this stuff. The least you can do is provide us with a little something more than you offer with your normal cereals. Throw in some Boo Berry themed toys or stickers or something in the boxes if you're not gonna at least do a new design for chrissakes.

No bike should be without one!

You included cool cheap stuff with boxes in the past... so it's not like we're asking for too much here.

In other news, next Friday we'll be attending the 5th annual EyeGore Awards "Scaremoney", which will be honoring people such as Roger Corman, Patricia Arquette, Don Mancini, Corey Feldman and more. But the best thing about it? Michael Berryman is going to be hosting the event as the "Master of Scaremonies". It should be a really cool event and after we're done there, we're heading straight to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios.

Friends 4ever!

This year is promising to be their best one yet as Freddy, Jason and Leatherface are all going to be there. What's great is that each of these areas will be treated much like the movies. For Jason, we'll be going to Crystal Lake, for Leatherface we head on over to the Hewitt house, and for Freddy we'll not go to the asylum where he was born, but we'll experience some of the dream sequences from the movie (the Roach Motel scene from Elm Street IV is supposedly one of them!). Naturally, the classic Universal Monsters such as Dracula, Wolf Man, and Frankenstein will be there as well. Even Chucky from Child's Play is supposed to be there. So yeah, expect a lot of great photos from those events and more. (here's the commercial for HHN for those of you who are interested. I wonder if Robosaurus will be there again...)

I'm also happy to report that production is going extremely well on our super-secret Halloween flash game! It's so secret that I might be killed for even mentioning its very existence, but that's the risk I take to bring you guys the latest and greatest news. You can expect our big Halloween game to be unveiled sometime in late October. Until then, have you experienced the horrors of our Haunted House Candy Hunt game yet? If you haven't fought the grim reaper and taken his candy, you don't know what you're missing out on. Who wouldn't want to be a Jedi of Halloween?

One thing I can tell you about this game is that it *should* have all original music by yours truly. I finally got my new MIDI controller (the M-Audio Axiom 25 for you music hardware tech geeks out there) and I'm gonna spend a lot of time figuring out how to get it to do what I want over the next month. It shall OBEY! I've also had to write more text for this game than probably all of my previous games combined, so it's been a lot of fun so far... time consuming as hell, but fun.

On a final note, this Sunday (9/30) also marks the return of my current favorite TV horror hero: Dexter. That's one hell of a good way to say goodbye to September and hello to October if you ask me.

And on a final-er note, make sure you enter our kick ass "Create A Horror Movie Poster Contest!" going on in the forums right now. There are some truly killer entries so far that you've gotta see! Hope you all plan to participate in the contest (if you haven't already).

Survey: We all have particular horror movies that we absolutely must watch once every year come October. For me, it's without a doubt John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness". It's primarily because I always thought it was one of the few truly scary/eerie horror movies ever made and I love the storyline. So how about you guys? What's at least one horror movie that you always make a point to watch every October to help get yourself into the Halloween spirit?

And of course it's a horror movie. Have you seen Shaq's acting?


Sean (Guest) on 09/30/2007 6:22 pm

The Evil Dead series, no doubt:

RoG, have you heard about the Aero Theater's all-night horror-thon-fest the Saturday before Halloween? 12 hours of great, stupid zombie movies and radioactive children who melt their parents when they hug them! Should be great:

And this would make for a fantastic feature:

The Halloween That Almost Wasn't.

Thank God my mum had the mind to tape it years ago.


shannon (Guest) on 10/01/2007 1:30 am

of course i have to watch halloween every year. in fact i am about to put it on right now in order to celebrate that tmrow is october 1st! also, Its The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Texas Chainsaw and The Exorcist. i love the old school originals. my dad used to sit up and watch them with me on Halloween.


Goatboy Khan (Guest) on 10/01/2007 6:28 am

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, followed immidiately by Hocus Pocus. Splatter and humor and Sarah Jessica Parker in a Witch/Prostitute outfit FTW!


DanK (Guest) on 10/01/2007 9:14 am

I have a BETA copy of Polish Vampire In Burbank. Its a must see if you can find it. Watching it on the old Sony BetaMax though really adds to it. The night concludes with a slotcar rally and setting fire to my neighbors kitchen...but thats just because he's a douche.


MrEff (Guest) on 10/01/2007 10:49 am

The Evil Dead trilogy and the first three Hellraiser films are enough to get me in the spirit.


Su (Guest) on 10/01/2007 11:55 am

"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," "Halloween" and "The Innocents."

And since they generally let loose on their cache of horror flicks (Why only at Halloween, I ask myself?), I'm going to try and catch "Haxan" this year. I managed to miss its ONE AND ONLY SHOWING last year, and I'm damn-well prepared for this time 'round!


Juanfer (Guest) on 10/01/2007 2:30 pm


pox (Guest) on 10/01/2007 2:47 pm

Hmmm a new game?


Xm (Guest) on 10/01/2007 3:24 pm

Dracula-the classic


Drac Malfus (Guest) on 10/01/2007 4:25 pm

I'd have to say that every Halloween I watch Jon Carpenter's "Halloween"(and the rest of the series, even 3 which people don't like) personal fav, but I have also recently (as of two years ago) started watching random japanese horror flicks. Basically anything I can find at the local store, or that of which a friend has.


S (Guest) on 10/01/2007 7:14 pm

I always end up seeing the Claymation Comedy of Horrors every October.


shannon (Guest) on 10/01/2007 9:14 pm

woohoo claymation comedy of horrors! i so have that and thought i was the only one who knew what that was!


Teh-Suxx0r (Guest) on 10/01/2007 9:14 pm

Hey RoG, I'm in Florida at the mo' because my brother is getting married, I thought I'd check out Boo Berry because you reccomend them so much, at first I was a wee bit hesitant, but they're great, wish I could get 'em at home.


Goatboy Khan (Guest) on 10/01/2007 10:52 pm

I highly recommend Pumpkinhead as well. And who can forget Creepshow? "Oh, Jordy Verrel, you lunkhead!"


-RoG- (Guest) on 10/02/2007 5:19 am

Lit, yes I have seen his acting and that's not horror, that's pure comedy.

Sean, thanks for the head's up, I didn't know there was a hell house in Hollywood. I'll have to make a point to check it out sometime!

Fathom Zero, ha yeah I saw that one when I was younger too, it's been a looong time though.

Shannon & Su, The Peanuts will always rock. The Great Pumpkin is real, you know...

DanK, wow, a Polish Vampire In Burbank? That's one a hell of a good title. So good, in fact, that I can't imagine the movie would be able to live up to it.

Pox, who let you out of the dungeon? Get back to work!

Drac, I actually love Halloween 3. Be sure to catch my article about it if you haven't already. I honestly think it's a great classic standalone horror movie about Halloween.

Teh-Suxx0r, glad ya found some man. Pretty much everybody loves the stuff when they have a chance to try it out. Best. Cereal. Ever.

Goatboy Khan, Creepshow and Creepshow 2 are absolutely great. I covered "The Raft" segment a few years ago actually. Sadly, they just released a Creepshow 3 film and you can tell just by the DVD cover that it's a horrendous piece of shit.


B.T.C (Guest) on 10/02/2007 6:24 am

I watch the first Halloween,Dawn of the dead, and at least one of that phantasm movies ever Halloween.


Alex (Guest) on 10/02/2007 10:26 am

Since I own the Friday the 13th Box Set, I usually bust out with atleast one of em. I also try to buy/rent a lot of different ones I haven't seen before. Hellraiser and Hellraiser 2 were ones I got last year, prolly watch Hellraiser 1 again now that I think about it...


Comment by (Guest) on 10/02/2007 1:30 pm

On the plus side Boo Berry appears to have a happier expression on the new boxes....
He is *not* dead inside from his near (I said near!!) forgotten, tragic, rage filled, alcoholic, barren, meaningless, Pickleman-deprived, daytime tv watching, lonely existance and too much "every rose has its thorn" and christina's "Beautiful" listening while looking back on the old glory times.
*ahem* I don't care if its likened to a popular dairy product often found on pizza "The Craft" will always rule my Halloween movies.


Mighty Pinto (Guest) on 10/02/2007 4:07 pm


There are two movies that I absolutely never fail to watch in October. One is "The Changeling" with George C. Scott. Not gory, but extremely creepy. I never knew a rubber ball bouncing down a flight of stairs could be so damn chilling.

The other movie is called "The Dead Next Door", a low-budget zombie flick shot in 8mm. It's interesting to note that it was by the same director who did "Street Zombies", but unlike "Street Zombies" it's actually entertaining to watch. The movie inolves a crack law enforcement team called "The Zombie Squad" who deals specifically with Zombie outbreaks for the U.S. Government.


Tim (Guest) on 10/03/2007 4:51 am

I try to watch Killer Klowns From Outer Space around this time. I really need to find a copy of 976-Evil II also, it had my all time favorite scene in a horror movie where a woman gets sucked into the movie It's A Wonderful Life and the cast of the movie all turn into zombies. Good times.


Macabre Jester (Guest) on 10/05/2007 9:38 pm

I always have to watch a double feature of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Return of the Living Dead".


VRSN (Guest) on 10/07/2007 1:47 pm

Good luck with that Axiom--my friend had one, but it somehow fried itself sitting on his desk in under 6 months. The trick is to set the velocity pads to preset MIDI modules for percussion or chords. I suggest Ableton Live as your host program.


Matt (Guest) on 10/10/2007 12:46 pm

I pretty much try to watch as many horror movies in october as humanly possible. I usually watch Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, the original Halloween, Suspiria, The Haunting, and my new favorite: Death Bed: The Bed That Eats, which, if you haven't seen it, you absolutely must!


briny bill (Guest) on 10/12/2007 2:49 am

any thing with nacked anima chicks course i allso do that to prepare for my ddaaf meetings vodca and a 98 chevy (jk)


FoRgEd (Guest) on 10/30/2007 10:36 am

This gave me to urge to buy that horror megapack that contain's all of the aforementioned movies and their sequels..

I never had the joy to taste those ''Boo Berry'' cereals.. Much less anything alike it, Europe cares little too much about healthiness of food.
I wonder what they would taste like..
