UK Reports “SuperBug” Infections — Is the end nigh?

BBC News reports that a new “superbug” infection has been identified in UK hospitals, potentially fulfilling the prophecies of “28 Days Later,” without the monkeys. Although they didn’t specifically say there weren’t monkeys.

Zombie Infection (Dramatization)

UK doctors reportedly fear that “Ultimately, [the NDM-1 virus] could produce dangerous infections that would spread rapidly from person to person and be almost impossible to treat” and that “it will go global.”

How to stop it? Quarantine, or “to rapidly identify and isolate any hospital patients who are affected.”

Hello. We can quarantine an entire island nation. We’ve done it before in the movies.

In other news, the H1N1 pandemic is officially over, and no one even talks about SARS anymore, so… will NDM-1 be the one? Who knows.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Bite Me.

Vampire Bite

With our modern day love affair with vampires still in full force, and Halloween right around the corner, there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight. If you can’t beat em, join em.

Take look at quiet mysterious Bella from the Twilight Series. She dresses dark and appears to be half dead and depressed most of the time. However, teenagers across the world are pining to look and act like her in order to get the vampire or their dreams. You can beat everyone to the bite, so to speak.

Here’s what to do:

Start dressing in dark colors. Keep your hair long and in your face. Lighten your face with a little powder to give yourself that “just bitten” look. The coverage is buildable so just a little bit will do you fine. Don’t go overboard… this isn’t a Casper contest. Use dark shadow to highlight your under eye circles. Dead is in, don’t hide your lack of sleep anymore! Next, apply your bite. You can bet that you’ll be getting more attention then Pamela Anderson at a frat party.

Face Painting Glitter

Boys, you want more girls than you can shake your stick at? Toss some glitter all over your body and walk into the sunlight. You will be swarmed in the hottest mess of 14 years olds you can imagine and probably a few sex crazed Adam Lambert fans as well. Don’t forget your setting spray, it will keep you glittering all night and all day.

Good luck!

Get it off me!

What the f is this thing.

Ok so just another spooky day at FrightCatalog.com right? Not so fast. I forgot my power cord at home so I ran home around lunch to pick it up. Leaving my house I saw a green tube crawling acroos my street. I was just going to keep driving and I wish I did. Of course curiosity kills the cat. I turned around, got out of the car and took a picture. I always have my handy Paper Mate pen with me so I put it down for reference.

When I put the pen down this think shrunk up a little so it’s even larger when its extended. In this picture this thing was about 4″, extended I could see it at 5″. Another weird thing was that it looks like it was twisting as it crawled.

The most horrifying part of this whole thing, besides the size, was the stinger on the end of it. The stinger was a good 1/4″ of pure horror.

Of course as I am writing this blog Shawn who sits next to me said he would eat it. Yea right.

White House Gatecrashers and Other Stupid Costume Ideas

Remember that wacky couple who crashed a state dinner at the White House last November, then went around like they were actually famous or something? It’s been reported that they somehow think the world gives enough of a shit about them to dress up in costumes of them for Halloween. I can’t be bothered to find a picture of these narcissists, so here’s a picture of a cool fountain instead, which sort of illustrates my reaction to the story:

Possessed Wall Fountain

But hey, if you think the White House Gatecrashers is a great and hilarious costume idea, here are some others you’ll probably like:

  • Some teenybopper who, like, totally snuck backstage at the Justin Bieber concert!
  • That 28-year-old dude who hooks the high school parties with beer as an excuse to hang out at them.
  • The kid who ran on the field at that Phillies game and got tasered (unless people can use real tasers on him).
  • Sparkly vampires (unless people can use real tasers on them).
  • Cardboard.

Parlay!

Pirates of the Caribbean 3 Captain Jack Sparrow Prestige Adult Costume

Now ye sorry sprogs, ye need to be brushin up on yer pirate speak so you can talk to the souls of the damned aboard this cursed vessel we call the internet. Here be some startin’ rules on how to be speakin like a true buccaneer:

  • Double up on all your adjectives and you’ll be bountifully bombastic with your phrasing. Pirates never speak of “a big ship”, they call it a “great, grand ship!” They never say never, they say “No nay ne’er!”
  • Drop all your “g”‘s when you speak and you’ll get words like “rowin’”, “sailin’” and “fightin’”. Dropping all of your “v”‘s will get you words like “ne’er”, “e’er” and “o’er”.
  • Instead of saying “I am”, sailors say, “I be”. Instead of saying “You are”, sailors say, “You be”. Instead of saying, “They are”, sailors say, “They be”. Ne’er speak in anythin’ but the present tense!

Elegant Pirate Lady Adult Costume

The above rules be commandeered from the fine website yarr.org. Ye best be viewin the rest of the website to brush up on all yer vocabulary. Talk Like a Pirate Day is coming up on the date of September 19th. Ye know I will be quizzin ye on your A…B…and Seas.

Once ye master the basics, turn ye Facebook into ye own furner. Scroll to the bottom left of ye Facebook homepage to where it says “English”. Change the writings to “English (Pirate)” and Avast! Ye are on ye way to a whole new adventure.

Now keep an eye on the horizon and a hand on the sail. I have one final treasure for ye. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is in the makin. This time Captain Jack Sparrow faces a wench from his past and also encounters the infamous Black Beard all while on a journey to find the booty of all booties, the fountain of youth. This ship be sailin in 2011.

SawJigsaw Tobin Bell Mask Adult

Tobin Bell aka “Jigsaw” of the Saw movies is perhaps one of my favorite of all movie killers. He never really directly killed anyone or took a completely “innocent” victim. His victims were people with shady pasts who didn’t full appreciate life as they should. Jigsaw’s mission was to teach a lesson, and he did so but putting victims in sadistic torture games that they could get out of if they made the right move. Jigsaw is a smart and calculating man. His games are deliciously twisted.

What originally started as a low budget horror movie has turned into a multimillion dollar franchise. There has been a new Saw movie every year since the original Saw came out in theaters in 2004. There are costumes, video games, books, and even theme park attractions dedicated to the followers of the movies. Now with the 3D movie craze sweeping the nation, you can be on the look out for the seventh installment of the Saw series set to come out in theaters October, 2010. As long as the Saw movies keep coming, I will keep paying to get my fix of mind bending torture.

Saw Puppet Mask

If you can’t hold off another month, play this free online game to keep you occupied in the meantime. It’s harder then you think, but the code can be cracked. Don’t get discouraged if your victims have to die a few times before you get it right. After all, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

Still want more? Great! I saved the best for last. It’s one thing to let two strangers suffer and die, but it’s another game when it’s your own life on the line.  Play JigSaw’s Game and put yourself in the torture chair. Stare yourself in the face as you sit in pure fear for your life. Are you smart enough and quick enough to get out alive? I wasn’t.

Shoes.

I don’t know if you’re aware of this, and I’m sorry if this comes off like “Sex in the City” or “Housewives of Ho-ho Kus” or one of those shows I don’t watch, but Fright Catalog carries an amazing array of shoes. Pages and pages of shoes. But, unlike the shoes the spoiled housewives covet, these shoes might have cool creepy designs like blood spatter and themes like sexy devil. They can be worn as part of an awesome Halloween costume, of course, but I can’t think of a reason you couldn’t wear them all the time, other than the heels might tire you out. Or make you stronger. Who knows.

Tart

Cherry-patterned “Tart” shoes — hello, how cute are these? I’m assuming these would go with a ’50s pinup type costume, but they’re too adorable to collect dust the rest of the year.

Devil Heels

The heels on these devil shoes are not as extreme as some of the others, making these black-and-red patent pumps almost  practical! A stylish accessory for a sexy devil costume that says HOT 365.

Black Cha Cha Boots


Nice girls don’t wear cha cha heels! Remember when Dawn Davenport (the late great Divine) ruined Christmas when she didn’t get her black cha cha heels in “Female Trouble”? Now they can be yours.

Red Blood Shoes

These blood-splattered beauties are currently out of stock, but keep your eyes peeled for a restock (the Devil heels were sold out a couple of weeks ago, so it can happen). These are perfect on many levels and can go with lots of costumes: sexy Chucky, Carrie, some kind of succubus… so many possibilities. They also come in black, which I kind of prefer, though I can’t get past the fact that the bloodstains wouldn’t show up on black shoes like that.

Resident Evil Afterlife=3D Milla Jovovich

Click to watch the cast talk about the movie at Comic Con 2010.

Our favorite string of zombie movies, Resident Evil, is back and better then ever…

Zombie 3-D Adult Costume

What could be more awesome then another round of sexy Milla Jovovich beating the crap out of zombies and other twisted Umbrella Corp science experiment creatures? Watching her do it in 3D of course!

Resident Evil Afterlife takes place in a world of the undead, plagued by the Umbrella Corp’s manufactured T-virus. Alice (Milla) is back on track collecting survivors and trying to bring people to a safe location…kicking zombie ass along the way. She is joined and aided by some familiar faces. Claire Redfield (Ali Larter) and K-Mart (Spencer Locke).

For some reason the search for safety takes them to Los Angeles. LA was never safe even when people weren’t walking around as blood thirsty zombies…. so I’m not quite sure what they were thinking but hey, it’s a movie. Nonetheless the group is LA bound. They may be heading into a trap before you can say “Zombie Snack!”.

Creeping Zombie

As far as the cast of characters growing, Milla Jovovich is like Batman. She is willing and more then capable of working alone. However, the more movies come out, the more Robin’s and Batgirls seem to be added. Eventually, the Resident Evil franchise may go back to their roots where Milla kicked ass all on her own without the help of sidekicks. In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy the 3D zombie killing action.

Look out for this movie coming out to a theater near you September 10th.
