The Horror Hangover

Hey there hot stuff, the hangovers should be getting worse as you all are drinking yourselves into an "I can't afford or figure out what to get for Christmas" coma! I'm here for you, lovely reader and I will give you the gift that keeps on giving, and no, it's not a picture of me this time. It's The Horror Hangover!

Starting at 11:00 AM (2007) Hot Fuzz is on Comedy Central. Edgar Wright's follow up to his masterpiece, Shaun of the Dead is not nearly as good, but a whole lotta fun with its comical situations and extreme flashes of gore. Anything teaming up of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and Wright is all "Wright" in my book and Hot Fuzz is a great way to start off the Hangover this Sunday.

Also at 11:00 AM, King Arthur (2004) is showing on SyFy. I never saw this film, but thought it looked like a pretty decent action/adventure film. Clive Owen is the man and he may be enough to make this one worth a shot at some point.

SyFy follows up King Arthur with The Brothers Grimm (2005) at 1:30 PM. I'm a big Terry Gilliam fan, but I have only seen bits and pieces of this mish mash of fairy tale and horror and it seemed okay. Monica Bellucci is in it, and she is hawt enough to garner a full viewing at least!

1:30 PM brings the pain with Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) on Spike. LOVE Kill Bill and I can and will watch this movie every time it's on. I'm sure it will be edited to shit, but it is still a fun view, censored or not. This just makes me wish that Tarantino would release The Whole Bloody Affair, for crying out loud.

At 2:00 PM, Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (1990) is showing on WGN. Not all that familiar with this station, but I looked into it and it is Chicago based and an affiliate of the CW, so hopefully most people get this channel. Anyway, I love this horror anthology staring Christian Slater, Steve Buscemi, James Remar and Blondie in a great wrap around story. I haven't seen it in many years, so it is my definite pick of the week.

3:00 PM brings us Heat (1995) on ION. Michael Mann's best film by far and another I haven't seen in a wicked long time. Great cast of actors that were still great at this time, Heat is an awesome crime film that is a sure bet for a great Hangover movie. "Hoo-hah!" That's my Pacino imitation.

And to end the day, at 4:00PM Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004) is on Spike. I love Vol. 1 more, but this second part to Tarantino's epic is quite great and the Pei Mei segment alone is worth the free price of admission.


  1. Heat.


    "Killed walkin' your DOGGIE!"


  2. Note to self: Tuaca and red wine do not mix. Under any circumstances. EVER.

  3. Senski: Yes, when Pacino was still somewhat awesome and not just Pacino doing exaggerated Pacino!

    POT: That sounds nasty! I could've told you that one...your gonna pay for it when you sit down on the porcelain throne!

  4. Yup. Just finished watching Kill Bill 1 & 2. Good day. Good day.

  5. Tales From The Darkside hands down! I too, one day dream of becoming the face of new wave and esoteric thrillers where I prepare to bake children.

  6. Andre: That is not a bad way to spend the day at all! I love both of those movies so much and like with most of Tarantino's work, you can just watch them at anytime, and at any point in the movie and be completely sucked right in!

    Ashlee: Ha...yeah, Blondie was pretty bad-ass! Love when she got all hip-hop back in the day and spit lyrics in a tight black dress! Debbie Harry was one cool cucumber and so isn't Tales From the Darkside.
