It's back: Halloween Costumes from Hell!

Ladies and germs, I'm thrilled to unveil this year's collection of Halloween costumes that never should have seen the black-light of day. For the 6th consecutive year, I've trolled the Internet for the most ill-advised party outfits out there so that we might collectively laugh at the poor judgment, taste, and overall fitness of others.

"But Buzz," you might coo, "these people are just out to have fun and don't deserve our ridicule. Can't you just leave them be?"

To that I say, just look at the douchebag above. He's perfectly happy with his Virginia Tech shooting victim outfit, his mini hoop earrings and the finest escort the greater Dallas area has to offer, so he doesn't really need our sympathy.

Enjoy, sickos!

Blood Work "True Blood" video blog Ep. 8: Pumpkin guts and muddy buttocks!

Hey kids - there's a new Blood Work vlog up, and it's got that "new pumpkin smell"! That's right, Andy devised some sweet-ass True Blood jack-o-lantern templates that we give a try in this week's ep as we discuss Sunday's gay-vampire-heavy, dirty-cemetery-sex-filled True Blood.

Check it out over on the CampBlood Video page, where you can also find a link to download your own carving templates!

Hear me, hear me! Buzz on the radio

So I'm sure all you sickos have something better to do on a Saturday night than listen to Internet radio ...


But if you're near a 'puter tomorrow night at 11PM Eastern do check out The Drunkard's Dream, a radio show that has invited yours truly on to talk about gay horror movies and shit.

In the spirit of the show's title, I'll likely be hammered, (um, it is after noon, duh...) so it could get good. And if they take phonecalls, please dial in with your best Billy from Black Christmas! You know you can smell it...

Blood Work "True Blood" video blog Ep. 7: Joe Zaso to the rescue!

Okay, you guys owe me big-time. In the name of gay horror fans everywhere, I subjected myself to an hour of time in front of a roaring (fake) fireplace with the hideously deformed and totally shirtless horror himbo Joe Zaso. I know, I know - the things I will put myself through for you people!

Truth be told, Joe is a doll and a wonderful co-host, and I'd lie on his bearskin rug anytime. Yes, that's a euphemism. At any rate, we discuss episode seven of True Blood, and it's a doozy!

Enjoy all the sexiness over on the CampBlood Video page!!

New "Blood Work" video blog (Ep 6): Nelsan Ellis and some damn good pie

Hey, vampire-lovers (and vampire lovers)! The Blood Work video blog is back to discuss this week's pie-heavy episode of True Blood, and it features a very very special guest: Nelsan Ellis, the actor who plays Bon Temps' sassiest short-order-cook (slashdrugdealerslashprostitute). It's just a taste of a full interview I'll be running in a few weeks, but I thought it worked into this week's vlog nicely so there ya go.

It's up over at the CampBlood Video page, so check it out!

Drag horror aficionado Peaches Christ is "All About Evil"

I got a note from drag performer and horror filmmaker Joshua Grannell, aka Peaches Christ (A Nightmare on Castro Street), letting us horror homos know that he has secured financing for his first feature, All About Evil, with producer Darren Stein (Jawbreaker).

The film tells the story of a demented movie theater proprietress who starts making her own arthouse horror films that are a little more taxing on the actors than they signed up for (and I don't just mean bad craft services)
. The flick reportedly has Thomas Dekker (The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), and Mink Stole lined up so far, and will go before cameras in early 2009.

Well this all sounds quite promising for fans of camp horror. I love the H.G. Lewis vibe of the setup and know that Christ ... er, Grannell is a dyed-in-the-wool ("died-in-the-wool"?) horror fan, so we can count on a gory good time if things come together as planned. Plus, that title?? It's like Peaches plucked it from my own pun-diseased brain. I'll be keeping my eye on this one..

"The Quarantining of Emily Rose" ... doesn't suck!

You may have heard that this weekend an honest-to-Blob horror movie opened in the theatres: Quarantine, the remake of Spanish hit REC. I haven't seen the original since I can't track down a bootleg that is actually subtitled and the only thing I can actually say in Spanish is "I think about cream cheese every day". (Which is true, btw.)

Anyway, I'm a fan of a good parlor trick (Quarantine employs the Cannibal Holocaust "found footage" trick that Cloverfield recently used to intense effect) and I also kinda dig Jennifer Carpenter from her rather piggish performance on Dexter (which is a compliment, believe it or not), so I thought I'd check it out.

And it ain't half bad! A few good scares, a simple but very clever trapped-with-the-infected setup (it's like Mulberry Drive with a budget) and an honest-to-God batshit breakdown by our Final Girl make for a solid 88 minutes of diverting horror moviegoing. There are some who will likely balk at Carpenter's character's unraveling in the third act (like the guys in my audience yelling at her to "Shut the fuck up!"), but I kind of loved that our tour guide through all the madness is utterly ill-equipped to handle any of the grislier developments of the night and basically throws in the towel.

And plus we get to see Carpenter retap into the role that put her on the map, that of a beleaguered teenage ghost motel in the otherwise completely unwatchable The Exorcism of Emily Rose. On the one hand I feel bad that her cutiepants boyfriend Michael C. Hall had to clean up her mess every night when she came home, but for the most part it was fun to see her shit her pants for about 30 minutes.

Anyone else catch it? What'dya think?

New "Blood Work" video blog (Ep 5): Home Sweet House of Horrors

Heya, sickos. I have a brand new Blood Work vlog covering last night's !SHOCKING! episode of True Blood (OMGICAN'TBELIEVETHEYDIDTHAT), and for the special occasion I roped horror filmmaker Bryan Norton, who brought us the fabulously spine-chilling haunted house tale Penny Dreadful, into letting me crash his apartment. Trust me, it is truly a mind-boggling museum of horror movie memorabilia, one-of-a-kind nasties, and ... like ... other shit.

To check out his pad and our scintillating conversation, head on over to the CampBlood Video page! Wheeeeeeee!

New updated CampBlood Video page!

So in order to not drive everyone cuckoobananas with the Blood Work vlogs, I've updated the dusty old CampBlood Video page (which was really as creaky as Betsy Palmer's knees by this point) with a Blood Work section, and will be adding some other tasty video treats as time goes by.

If you haven't checked out the vlog yet, it's up to
Episode 4: The Continuing Adventures of Jason Stackhouse's Penis, and it's kinda fun shit. Do take a spin!
