Videodrama: Lauren Tewes, Demon Dialer!
Here's a bit of CampBlood video mashup silliness to get you through this agonizingly beautiful summer day. It seems that Eyes of a Stranger (and The Love Boat) star Lauren Tewes has holed herself up in her Shanghai brothel-inspired bedroom with a fresh pack of bitch sticks, a mountain of blow and unlimited local calling.
Will the unlucky ladies who take her calls make it out alive?!
(Note: An earlier version of this vid popped up on CampBlood a few years back but this is way better, if I do say so m'self.)
Since a lot of folks in the States are coasting through the day before the holiday starts tomorrow, I thought I'd post a few fun horror-related music videos from one of my favorite bands, Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
In an oddly prescient move, the band opted for some Michael Jackson imagery for the video for their latest single, "Heads Will Roll", which also features some wonderfully grand guignol moments near the end.
It's not the first time the band has mined horror tropes for its videos. Back on their first album, the Yeahs brought video wonderkind Spike Jonze on-board to direct the wonderfully creepy evil kid party for "Y Control":
Okay, so go ahead and kill me and dump me in a mineshaft but The House on Sorority Row isn't one of my favorites, despite featuring Kristin from Days of Our Lives as a white-hot Alpha Bitch. The Les Diabolique parallels were cute, sure, and the whole "twist" was interesting, but otherwise I've never really had much to say about it. (Except, of course, "Mrs. Slater", harder and more often.)
So don't kill me when I say that I'll totally go see this remake, which doesn't really appear to take much from the original other than the location and the idea of a prank-gone-wrong. Won't it be worth it to see that fish-faced idiot from The Hills get a tire-iron to the gut? I wonder if with her last breath she asks, "Isn't it funny how all this is happening while Lauren's away?"
