Alex Winter’s Freaked Is Getting a Mondo Vinyl Soundtrack Release

Freaked is getting some love from the folks at Mondo. The company will be releasing the movie's soundtrack for the first time ever on vinyl this fall, complete with new artwork from artist David Daniels, who did the movie's original title sequence. Alex Winter, who co-wrote and co-directed the movie with Tom Stern, said on Twitter, "We've been working on the soundtrack release with the great folks at @MondoNews for a couple of years. A lot of love went into this." Also, Winter teased, while responding to a fan inquiry about further details, that the Parliament Funkadelic song from the credits will be included, as well as a possible surprise track."Don't want to totally spoil it but yes to pfunk and we just might have dug up the never used demo title track by a certain rock god."In addition to the Mondo vinyl release, which doesn't yet have an exact release date, Freaked has been given a brand new poster and enamel pin, which are on sale now. Though, they are likely to sell fast, so if you want to get your hands on one, it would be best to act quickly. Both the poster and the cover art for the soundtrack release draw on the same imagery from the movie, which is sure to make fans of the cult classic very happy. The poster and pin were designed by Matty Ryan Tobin.Freaked has a very unique history. The movie came from the minds of the dudes behind the MTV sketch show The Idiot Box and was originally pitched as a low-budget horror flick to star alternative rock band Butthole Surfers. Eventually, it was sold to Fox and evolved into a bizarre black comedy, with a circus sideshow serving as the backdrop. Despite Fox's initial interest, and $12 million investment with the production budget, the studio deemed it too weird and it was ultimately dumped in just a few theaters. However, it eventually gained cult status, despite the fact that it was very difficult to get a copy of or even see until very recently. Alex Winter revealed a handful of years ago that the final print was almost destroyed.In Freaked, Embattled corporation Everything Except Shoes, or E.E.S., hires celebrity Ricky Coogin (Alex Winter) to serve as its spokesperson amid a spate of reports that the company uses a toxic substance in the products it manufactures. Ricky travels to South America to dispel the rumors, but instead he stumbles upon an oddball amusement park run by the demented Elijah C. Skuggs (Randy Quaid). It turns out that Skuggs is using the substance in E.E.S. products to turn humans into grotesque mutants.These new Freaked goods should help hold you Alex Winter fans over until Bill and Ted 3 actually gets going. Hopefully, Mondo will release further details on the vinyl soundtrack in the near future. If you want to get your hands on one of the new Freaked posters or enamel pins, head on over to Mondo.

Tigtone, The Shivering Truth: Adult Swim Orders Two New Animated Series

by Jessica Pena, August 10, 2018 Adult Swim is getting surreal. Recently, the network announced they’ve ordered two new animated TV shows, Tigtone and The Shivering Truth. A stop-motion series, The Shivering Truth (pictured above) “is a delicately crafted, surreal anthology comedy, a miniature propulsive omnibus clusterbomb of painfully riotous daymares, all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic.” Meanwhile, Tigtone “is the saga of a quest-addicted hero (Tigtone) who slashes his way through a satirical fantasy universe with melodramatic ferocity and a complete disregard for the collateral damage he inflicts along the way.” Bother The Shivering Truth and Tigtone are set to debut in 2019. You can read more info from Adult Swim below: Going all in on the medieval and surreal, Adult Swim announced today they have greenlit two new original series with different animation styles, The Shivering Truth and Tigtone. The Shivering Truth is a delicately crafted, surreal anthology comedy, a miniature propulsive omnibus clusterbomb of painfully riotous daymares, all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic. It is a series of loosely-linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion — in other words, it is the TRUTH. Created and written by Vernon Chatman, who also serves as director with Cat Solen, the series is executive produced by PFFR (Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, Xavier: Renegade Angel) with Solen. The animation studio is Shadow Machine. The Shivering Truth is currently in production and will premiere later this year. Next, Adult Swim goes totally medieval with Tigtone, a new quarter-hour animated series created by Andrew Koehler and Benjamin Martin, who also serve as executive producers with Blake Anderson (Workaholics). Tigtone is the saga of a quest-addicted hero (Tigtone) who slashes his way through a satirical fantasy universe with melodramatic ferocity and a complete disregard for the collateral damage he inflicts along the way. The series both celebrates and subverts tropes of the fantasy genre, role playing games, video games, and films. Combining highly rendered, hand-painted fantasy art, motion capture performance, 2D animation, and pseudo-3D visual effects, the wizards at Titmouse have ventured into uncharted territory to pioneer this radical new style, creating a Tigtone universe that is beautifully unsettling. The new comedy series debuts on Adult Swim in 2019.” What do you think? Do you watch Adult Swim? Will you check out The Shivering Truth and/or Tigtone? 

Slender Man Review #2: Teen-Centric Horror Goes for Mood Over Scares

The quartet of teenage female protagonists at the center of Slender Man will remind horror fans of a certain age of The Craft, another film that featured a foursome of high schoolers navigating the perils of adolescents along with some supernatural terror. Unlike that film (and just about every other film that features a group of young women) they never turn on each other, fight over boys, or ever refer to one another as bitches or sluts (even in that joking-but-not-joking way). They don't always see eye-to-eye and they occasionally butt heads, but never denigrate or demean each other-even though...

Chris Hemsworth Enjoys Birthday Wishes from Marvel & DC Superhero Stars

Chris Hemsworth turned 35-years old over the weekend and received birthday wishes from his superhero friends. The Thor actor then joked that he had been horribly disfigured by his birthday cake candles, revealing that he is now ready to play Wade Wilson in the next Deadpool movie. Obviously, Ryan Reynolds was not going to let the joke slide, so he fired back stating that he was ready to take on the role of Thor after his eye had been poked out by his daughter.Chris Hemsworth shared a picture of he and his wife and his birthday cake on social media. The picture is very wholesome, but it's captioned with a dark joke that involves one of Hemsworth's kids forcing his face into the candles, leaving him disfigured. The Thor actor now believes that he can replace Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool franchise. He says"My son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles, I'll now be playing Deadpool if @VancityReynolds pulls the pin."Ryan Reynolds took note of Chris Hemsworth's joke and decided to one-up him with another zinger aimed at Thor's eye. The God of Thunder now has two eyes thanks to Rocket Racoon in Infinity War, but Reynolds still decided to use the eye as the basis of his joke and then brought up the idea of swapping roles. The actor then wished Hemsworth a happy birthday. Reynolds had this to say."Weird. My daughter just stabbed me in the right eye. (She's not a ninja, but she is a bit of a d*ck) Point is, We can finally trade roles... (Happy Birthday Bubba!)"While Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Reynolds are obviously joking around about swapping roles, the two will be united under the Disney and Fox merger in the near future. It's unlikely that Deadpool will end up hanging out with the Avengers any time soon, but the idea of them together is pretty amazing. Thinking of Reynolds and Hemsworth working under the direction of Taika Waititi on a possible Thor 4 is almost too much to imagine. Pairing the Merc with a Mouth's potty humor with Thor's quirky humor would be an awesome mix.Ryan Reynolds was not alone in wishing Chris Hemsworth a happy birthday. Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt, Henry Cavill, and more took time out of their days to wish Hemsworth well on his special day by sending comments to his Wife's Instagram. Brolin filmed a pretty funny video of him singing a song that he apparently made up on the spot while Liam Hemsworth shares a story about throwing a knife at his brother's head. Leon Bridges also sings a happy birthday song. The birthday of Chris Hemsworth ended up as a pretty funny event on social media. You can check out all of the birthday wishes, as well as the role swap below, thanks to Chris Hemsworth's Twitter account.Immediately after this shot was taken my son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles, I’ll now be playing Deadpool if @VancityReynolds pulls the pin #bestbirthdayever@ElsaPataky_pic.twitter.com/QUvjAC4xAH— Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) August 11, 2018Weird.
