omegaresnovae: Have you read any of the Franken Fran scanlations?

I have read quite a few of them, actually (the series is certainly a contender for the title of “Most Misleading Covers”…).  Poor Fran…she means well, but…

Well, no one can perform miracles, after all.  And, at least those asking for her skills are occasionally in the wrong for doing so in the first place.

pianissimoe: i hope you don't mind if i ask a question about a board game from about 20 years ago. no one i've spoken to has heard of it and i'm just curious if you have; it's cheesy but it seems up your alley, a little bit. it's called Nightmare and it's been a while since i've played so i don't remember everything, but it came with this 60 minute long VHS tape and you had to finish the game before the tape was finished. i'm pretty sure the game was at the gates of hell? can you help me feel less crazy?

While I never played it myself, I definitely remember seeing the commercial for it, and thinking it looked rad as fuck (Morty said he recalls seeing a print ad for it in a comic book).  It originally came out in Australia back in 1991, under the title Atmosfear (which I believe is the name the franchise is still known under in most regions outside of the United States).  The worldwide success of the first game ushered in numerous expansions and sequels, the last one being Atmosfear: Khufu the Mummy in 2006.

Video board games first started becoming a big deal in the mid 80’s (a natural side effect of the blossoming home video industry).  We used to have one of the Clue video board games (and I’m sure it’s probably still buried somewhere deep in the bowels of our unused garage).

The video for Nightmare is actually up in full on Youtube.

Honestly, it still looks rad as fuck.  Maybe I can find one myself someday, because I’d love to play it.

The city of the dead. The living dead. A cursed city where the gates of hell have been opened.

The Amityville Horror:  The Haunting Hoax That Fooled the World

I am a person that believes in the possibilities of supernatural phenomena.  However, I’m also aware that one mustn’t let their enthusiasm for such things cloud their judgment, nor blind them to seeing the truth about events that turn out to be false.  Despite being one of the most well-known and widely believed “hauntings” in American history, I’m afraid that the story of “The Amityville Horror” is one of those cases.

This movie taught me a valuable lesson about being more selective when trying to acquire rare VHS tapes.I was sent this film in a German VHS clamshell case, and the film itself was in English, with Japanese subtitles.I’m not even kidding.  I’ll take a few pictures of it if I ever find the damn thing.

bastardoftherock: Do you know the name of the movie where this kid, a boy lives with his mom, and the mom is dating a werewolf later he finds out and tries to warn his mom. I already know of the movie called My Mom's A Werewolf but that was from the 80's. This movie was serious probably early to mid 90's.

Oh, gosh…that’s a toughie.  I’ve been looking through the 90’s category on Werewolf-Movies.com (isn’t it convenient that there are even sites that try to compile these things?  I found one for movies with robots, and even one for horror movies featuring cats!), but the descriptions are too brief for me to tell.

Does anyone else out there have any info on this?  Otherwise, Morty might know when he gets here later today.  Werewolf films are his specialty.

No, Dickie, no!  Bad dog!

…Well, okay…she did somehow escape from the Beyond, but c’mon: There are far nicer ways to put her back there.

'Snuff' VHS big box. This one was banned in one more country than 'Cannibal Ferox' 😂 #snuff #heruarchive #vhs #exploitation #rendezvousla (at Basilland)

"The film that could only be made in South America…where Life is CHEAP!"
Honestly, it’s surprising that more people didn’t realize sooner that the alleged “killing” hastily tacked onto the end of the movie had nothing to do with the footage that preceded it.  They made no attempt whatsoever to recreate any of the sets, nor to find actresses that resembled any of the ones used in the original film.
Also considering that the original had actually been briefly released to theaters four years prior, you would think there’d have been more people taking notice (though, to be fair, it had failed miserably at the box office).  I went over the origins of the film in greater detail here.  
On a semi-related note, there actually was a rumor that went around among b-movie actresses during the late 60’s/early 70’s about an unnamed actress that went missing during the production of a film, never to return.  However, this rumor was about filming in the Philippines, and not Argentina.
