Literally Screaming for Ice Cream

Dude. We never get stuff this cool on this side of the pond. :/ Stoyn’s ice cream (in Russia! auuugh!) is making ice cream bars with classic 80s horror icons Pinhead, Chuckie, The Predator Alien, Freddy, and Jason. Admittedly, the flavors all sound pretty weird (tomato/hot pepper? celery/melon??) but they LOOK AWESOME.

(h/t to my friend Steven for pointing this out to me!)

Freddy Vs. Jason

Today, you get a short post from me because I am just too damn tired to concentrate long enough for a coherent rant about why I love Freddy Vs. Jason.

Long story short (too late!): After many years of speculation, rewrites, and fiascos, they did this thing up RIGHT. The writers paid close attention to all the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th movies that had come before, and worked in (very accurate) details referencing both Freddy and Jason’s origins and things that had happened in the originals and sequels — plus, they nailed both killers’ style of dispatching victims.

This was honestly the most fun I’d had watching a horror movie in the theater in a long, long time. The perfect amount of splatter & gore, and major points for knowing what it is and not taking itself too seriously.

Not convinced you should see it yet? I have one more thing to say to you: Monica Keena’s cleavage is a star in its own right.

Horror-vertising?

Horror-vertising?

As discovered on i09.com – a Dubai-based ad agency named Tonic came up with a unique way to sell Burger King; by showing horror icons Jason, Freddy, Chuckie and the Scream ghostface prepping for kills by devouring burgers & fries.

Contrary to claiming these ads promote murder, I view it as harmless fun. I particularly like the way Jason’s photo shows a cheerleader trussed up and slung over the front window. NICE job, Tonic. They’d never allow this kind of stuff in the states, but I commend your creativity!
