Your Weekend Justice #139: Lock This Episode in the Barn and Feed It Chickens

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that is bigoted against sexism, sexist against racism, and racist against Speed Racer. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    5 Vampire Books To Slip Twilight Readers (And Do So On a Budget)

    Twilight Sparkly Vampire and Consort

    So I understand there are people quite perturbed at the amount of Twilight-mania that’s going on, since Part 1 of the “final”* book has hit cinemas this weekend. People are going apeshit over it (vampshit?) and it will make a ton of money. This is known. And granted, I’m not saying don’t make fun of them (a certain incident we staged with a pinata springs to mind), but keep it in perspective.

    So for those of you who find yourselves overly concerned about the amount of attention this is giving to Vampiricus Sparklibus, I have three things for you:

  • Recall that at some point in your life–more than likely it’s been more than one point, in fact–you too have been fanatical about something that made others wonder what the hell you had been smoking. I’m not talking about those old school photos you posted on Facebook with your own remarks regarding the hairstyle and/or fashion sense of the day. I mean, at the time, somebody thought you were stoned. We’ve all done it–this is just theirs.

    32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 30: Count Dracula (1970)

    Count Dracula 1970

    Tonight has been a night for Dracula. And you would be amazed (or maybe not) as to how many different film versions there are. We’ve covered a lot of them but there’s still more: case in point, Jess Franco’s Count Dracula from 1970.

    Not a Hammer film and yet you’ve got Christopher Lee as Dracula. So it’s, I guess you might say, the Never Say Never Again of Dracula flicks.

    The cast beyond Sir Christopher is impressive: Klaus Kinski as Renfield and Herbert Lom as Van Helsing. And the film on the whole is more faithful to the novel–notice this version of Dracula starts off old and gets younger, as opposed to the sauve-from-the-get-go Mr. Lugosi. Definitely worth a viewing. Enjoy!

    32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 22: The Vampire Lovers!

    Vampire Lovers

    It’s Peter Cushing Night! That means there’s a better than average chance we’re going to vampires…or maybe Frankenstein? Nope, you had it in one. Vampires it is. And specifically, we’re talking the 1970 film The Vampire Lovers (we’ve post the trailer in our sexy vampire trailer roundup previously). Instead of Dracula, however, Cushing and company are facing off with Carmilla, the original female vampire (novel published in 1872). Cushing is “The General.” And that would be Ingrid Pitt in the Carmilla role. Enjoy the mayhem.

    32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 20: Blacula!

    Blacula!

    That’s right…as part of Blaxploitation Day of 32 Days of Halloween, it’s time to go to the #1 hit of the blaxploitation horror subgenre: Blacula. Of course, on the surface, it looks like it’s going to be 70stastic nonsense. But if there’s anything that manages to elevate such a relatively goofy premise, it’s William Freaking Marshall. His screen presence is amazing. His voice is incredible. If there is anybody who can pull off the title role, it’s him. Enjoy.

    32 Days of Halloween V, Day 9: The Omega Man

    Charlton Heston in The Omega Man

    I know you’re following along in your 32 Days of Halloween scorecard (you did save up your cereal boxtops and snag those two years ago, right?) and you’re thinking, “Um, Widge? It’s Day 9. That’s meant vampires for a while now. Everybody knows there are no vampires in The Omega Man.”

    And yes, I thought I would take a brief left turn and talk about a film that should have had vampires. Instead we got albino monks (precursors of DaVinci Code?). But still we get Heston and guns and ham. And Anthony Zerbe. So that’s something. Indeed, one of my favorite bits of the film opens the trailer below.

    Also, it’s because of the film that I was able to find a copy of the source material, Richard Matheson‘s I Am Legend, since–at the time I was seeking it–it was out of print. How you let Stephen King‘s favorite book go out of print, I have no idea. Regardless, enjoy this:
