University gets Horror Icon Archives

If you are planning on attending University to become the next great Horror genre screenwriter then there is only one place on earth that you should be looking to attend right now. University of Pittsburgh have just been handed the whole Archive of Horror legend George A Romero. The manuscripts are available to both current students and faculty to observe, so if you manage to get on a program there you are able to browse this fantastic archive at your leisure, surely giving you a huge insight into the craft of screenwriting. This collection even boasts an annotated copy of “Night of the Living Dead” complete with a foam latex zombie head. The University is planning on becoming a center for Horror genre study and with this great addition I am sure they will easily pull off this plan. George A Romero had ties to the city as he moved there in 1950 to study graphic art and got his first break shooting commercials there. Sadly he passed in 2017 but this is surely a fitting tribute to the Horror icon.

 

 

The new Slenderman?

Earlier today I happened to stumble upon a new internet sensation that is now being blamed for the suicides of two teens in Colombia. The internet meme simply known as Momo has now become a dangerous game among kids. The kids are encouraged to add a Whats-app account that claims to be Momo and even uses this terrifying image as their profile pic.

The premise of this new internet game is that you add the account and you will get messaged back with a variety of different challenges to complete with the last one being suicide. People who have played this have reported receiving strange phone calls and sometimes grotesquely disturbing images to their cell phone and this new craze has rapidly gone viral.

 

At Regoregitated Media we are all about the scare but this stuff is real and we want to warn parents of the dangers that their children can be exposed to online. You should for sure be monitoring their Internet use and make sure that these fictional characters are not used for real world evil! I have decided to do some more research into this and will post my results to the site in a couple of days.

R.L Stine creator of the Legendary Teen Horror series Goosebumps has just signed a contract to write four Supernatural Graphic novels for Boom Studios and the first book is expected to be released as early as fall of next year.  Stine was quote as saying this after the deal was made.

“I’m so lucky to have been able to scare so many generations of kids,”  “Now I feel lucky to be going just beyond Goosebumps to a whole new medium of fright and chilling laughs. I’m hoping that BOOM! is the sound of an explosion of fun in a whole new world for me.”

This is exciting times for the Author and his fans and as a fan of the Original Goosebumps stories as I grew up in a generation with them I am excited to see what he comes up with.

Deep Blue sea 2 inspired by real shark?

Recently I watched the long anticipated movie sequel to Deep Blue Sea, it was a fairly decent movie but one thing that struck me as odd was the killer baby sharks, they were more fearsome than their larger counterparts and that  got me to thinking, why would these tiny sharks be scarier than the larger sharks in the movie. The larger sharks could literally bite you in half with one chomp surely those were a much more fearsome predator. The miniature sharks kind of reminded me of a shoal of Piranha as they decimated everything they ran into in the underground base, only they did not have the same characteristics of Piranha’s they did not rip at their victims they seemed to merely latch onto them. This got me to thinking as to whether the film-makers based these little monsters on anything that lives in the real world and I stumbled upon this fascinating creature.  Introducing:

The Cookie Cutter Shark

The Cookie Cutter shark is a species of Dogfish and they normally inhabit warmer climates, they have the biggest teeth to body size ratio of all the Shark species and are certainly not something you would ever want to run into. These elite predatory fish have been known to take bites out of unsuspecting Whales  and even Great White Sharks, they are the ultimate sneak attack predators. These small sharks are not really known for attacking humans but there has been a few isolated cases worldwide. The Cookie Cutter Shark leaves a circular bite on it’s victims which is where it gets it’s name from. These tiny sharks only grow up to about 16 inches but have been known to take on prey much larger than itself. They also back in the 60s caused a problem to nuclear subs as they were biting holes in them causing them to leak important fluids, so in perspective this fish can chew through steel. Would be a great fish for a Horror Movie, well in fact they did make a Cameo in Shark Night 3D in 2011 making it highly possible that these sharks were in fact the basis for the Sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2. Although we do not know to much about these elusive Sharks we do know that we really don’t want to be bitten by one as this is the affect it can have when attacking a Human.

And it is even brave enough to do this to a Great White; one of the most feared predators of the deep.

So what do you guys think? Did these vicious little Sharks spawn the Sharks in this movie? Watch the movie and let us know your thoughts.

Fangoria is back!

Some great news for fans of the Horror genre was well received this week as arguably one of the biggest names in the industry was arisen from the dead. Fangoria has now been purchased by Cinestate and will be back as an in print magazine, you will not be able to find the articles contained within it’s pages anywhere online. Cinestate has come to Fangoria at a time where the brand has suffered some very real setbacks. Under the previous owners there has been financial hardship and the brand was black marked by a lot of fans as they simply did not get what they handed over their well earned cash for. Cinestate however seem fairly confident that they can bring the brand back to it’s glory days once again and at Regoregitated Media we are really looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.

On a side note a couple of us from Regoregitated Media are about to pitch a few ideas their way as it has always been a dream of mine to write for them and on that we will definitely keep you posted.

 

New Table Top Horror

Being English I happen to know that the country is full of very unique and colorful folklore, I grew up hearing various ghost stories and tales of the unknown from the beautiful eerie rural countryside of England. Some were believable; some a little far fetched even for me. Well like me I guess Trolish Delver games heard some of these tales also. The premise of the new game is a traditional story telling game with a twist; you ride solo on this one. That’s right, usually you probably wouldn’t want to delve into these stories by yourself but this is exactly what the designers of the game want you to do. We are sure this one will give you nightmares for weeks as you explore rural England’s darker kept secrets.

The Press Release reads:

“English Eerie is a storytelling game about horror in rural England. The game takes inspiration from folklore, along with the works of M.R. James, Arthur Machen and Algernon Blackwood to help players tell their own haunted tales of the English countryside.
The game is designed to be played over one or a series of dark evenings by the flicker of candlelight. The player, you, will need a journal, a pen, a ten-sided die (d10), a set of tokens in two colours (beads etc) and a deck of playing cards.
The aim of English Eerie is to tell your own tale of rural horror through entries in your journal – just as many protagonists do in horror literature. The card deck will be the engine that drives your story, presenting scenes for you to flesh out and for your character to overcome – all of which is recorded in physical journal entries. As time goes on tension rises and the horror is ramped up until the climactic end scene. There are several scenarios at the end of this book that offer you an inspirational framework to build a terrifying tale. You can choose to play the game in a single sitting or to draw out the experience over a series of nights.
This book contains five spine-chilling scenarios to inspire your tales of terror:
The Beast on the Moor
The Lost River
Detox
A Rattle of Chains
The Inn
For those who want a group game, the Campfire rules offer suggestions for playing English Eerie with friends”

 

We are going to try and obtain a copy and we will let you know how it goes.
