Holiday Hibernation

Without fail, the month of December is never kind to this blog with respect to posts and this year has been no exception. Work and holiday preparation is just too much of a demanding mistress, unfortunately. At any rate, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year- try to keep the spiked egg nog consumption within reasonable limits! Or don't. It's all good.

See you all in 2012!

Two Trailers with Giants

While browsing the Dread Central website over the weekend I came across a couple of relevant trailers and figured that I’d post some links to them (I couldn’t seem to embed them directly on the blog, unfortunately). First up is the trailer for Bunyan, a horror spin on the folk character of the same name who prefers chopping up impudent teenagers instead of trees (click on each picture to go to the site):

The second is Jack the Giant Killer, which seems to be a re-imagining of the original Jack and the Beanstalk story verses a remake of the 1961 movie of the same name:

Admittedly, Bunyan looks like typical horror fare with a huge, axe-wielding mutant dude standing in for a machete-carrying maniac wearing a hockey mask. Hard to tell what to make of Jack, as the trailer’s kind of all over the place.
