Brand New CampBlood Blog!

That's right, skittles: I'm sorry to announce that Blogger and I are breaking up. No, Blogger, no - don't cry. It wasn't you, it was me. (...and your mother.)

Forreal, as of this very instant the CampBlood Blog will be moving to a snazzy new locale packed with new amenities, added features and a sharp new look that follows the camp cabin theme recently rolled out on the main page.

I know it may be a hassle/shock to some of you, but please trust that it's all in the name of improved quality, increased interactivity and ... I don't know ... celery. I love me some celery.

From here on out please to visit us at the New and Improved Blog, and of course on the main page. And if you bookmarked us, please update with the new address! As ever, please feel free to send me any feedback (positive or negative).

The Camp has been renovated!!

It's true: After 6 years (holy eff!) of the same-old same-old, I've called in the hot men in acid-washed jeans to tear down the drywall and give the mess hall of CampBlood a long-overdue makeover.

Inspired by the Totem Pole design that ... er ... "Chuckie" created for our newest t-shirts (COUGH! AVAILABLE NOW FOR ONLY $13.99! COUGH!), I've reimagined the site's main page as the announcement wall of a somewhat dilapidated and very bloody summer camp. Don't worry, all the content pages (Features, Reviews, Homo Horror Guide, Movies of the Weak) are still there (with the addition of the Blog and the Shop) and can be accessed by mousing over the characters on the totem pole. Neat, huh? You'd think I actually knew what the Christ I was doing behind a keyboard!

Some other new features include Staff bios (TBD - we go through more counsellors than you can imagine, as you'll find out), an Activities bulletin that showcases some of our favorite new content, and a Campers bulletin that highlights you, our dear readers (right now it's a Facebook widget that displays the shining faces of our fans but it will rotate as camp progresses).

Plus, the graffiti on the walls will no doubt change as we try to keep up on the cleaning (those pesky kids and their Sharpies!) and there will be other subtle interactive tricks in store, so be sure to visit and poke around often! (Which, oddly enough, was on my calling card back in college...)

I know, it's kind of a bummer to not be greeted by the anguished warbling of Barbra as you enter the site, and for some it may seem like the end of a classic, albeit text-heavy, era. But rest assured that it's all in the name of bigger and better, and "Prisoner" won't be gone for long.

There's also an email link on the main page - please feel free to send me any comments (or of course leave them here on this post) or tip me off to any bugs, as I truly don't know what the fuck I'm doing here.

Thanks, and happy camping!

Juliette Cummins sends kisses

Okay, this is waaaaaay old, but better late than never, right? My dear friend Tintorera Joe was at the Fangoria con in LA a few months back and snagged sequel-happy scream queen Juliette Cummins (Psycho III, Friday 5, Slumber Party Massacre 2) to give us freaks a shout-out. She even blows me a kiss!

Note that she wasn't too keen to discuss Click: The Calendar Girl Killer, though ...

Are you ready for this shit?

Alright, squids: I've finally decided to get this jalopy into gear and move to a blog format for the News section, in order to make things searchable, allow you whiners to comment, blah-zee-blah-blah-blah. The main site, Features Page, Reviews, and all that other shit are all staying put for now, with this blog-thing just picking up where the News page left off.

Speaking of which ...

The News page "left off" because my computer "went batshit" right before "Christmas" and I lost everything and was forced to buy "a new one". That was a nice big lump of coal in my stocking, believe you me. ("Puuuniiiiiiishhhh...") Anyway, we'll see if this new format makes it any easier for me to keep things cookin' over here.

It'll take me a while to get used to things, but keep your eye on this spot. Or it will keep an eye on you... MWUAHAHAHAHAHA!
