Well , well , well, what do we have here? Is it a new column? You bet your asses it is. This week I was planning on taking some time off to rest up my finger bones, but the allure of writing for you all has overwritten my common sense and caused me to come up with something new. Don’t worry, you’ll still be getting suggestions and horrors from the other geeks who have so graciously volunteered to take over those for the remainder of this week, but I just couldn’t stay away from you guys. Such is your power over me. I’ll have some more suggestions and horrors for you next week, but this week, I wanted to do something brand new for you all. Over the weekend, I happened to catch something that I haven’t gotten a chance to see, but wanted to. That would be the remake of Friday the 13th, and as you all know, I am a HUGE Jason fan. I was excited for it…..and then I saw Michael Bay was attached as a producer. I immediately got pissed because that could only mean one thing…..Martin Lawrence…..just kidding…..EXPLOSIONS!!!!!! This did not bode well for the film, however I still wanted to watch it. So I did, and I was quite disappointed. Not too much, but just enough that I wished for something different. It got me thinking though, what would I do in this sort of situation? Not as a director, I don’t want to go down that road, but what if I was in that movie as one of the kids being hunted by Jason? My brain exploded with ideas, and this was born out of my love for the franchise and just for stories and movies in general. I know most of you guys go to the movies, and after everything is said and done, I know the first question on all of your minds is…” What would Arthur have done?” Well, here you go!
Welcome back kiddies to another edition of Horrors, presented to you by your black hearted necromancer, Arthur Harkness. Sorry for the formal introduction, but I felt like it was needed as you all now know our origin story. It’s not necessary for me to hide my blasphemous professional life from you all anymore. So, much like I mentioned last week, I was thinking about getting the Halloween activities and horror based items started early, as I was just way too excited to keep it locked in anymore. I have decided to bring you a different mass murdering, lovable goofball each week , starting this week and continuing all the way until Halloween, in which I will summon forth the great powers of the Old Ones in an attempt to corrupt this world into a twisting mass of snapped limbs, flailing tentacles and burned buildings…..wait….that’s Schenectady.….just kidding. Anyways, what better place to start than everyone’s favorite summer camp? Crystal Lake, here we come!!
Welcome back once again to your weekly feast of blood and gore. I, as always, am your devourer of souls and filler of empty holes (graves, you heathens) , Arthur Harkness. Today I bring to you something that is slightly (greatly) absurd yet oh so awesome at the same time. Your boy Arthur loves horror movies, we all know that, yet what you don’t know is that I have almost no shame with my love for certain properties. One such being Friday The 13th and all things Jason Voorhees. I know a lot of you must be fans as well, so in honor of our masked assailant and stalker of camp grounds, I am going to give you a combined dose of two Friday the 13th movies! Excited? Well you should be! Because I am giving you Jason X and Jason Goes to Hell. Hahaha I wish I could see the look on all of your faces. Why? Because I know you all are probably groaning at the moment. But Arthur! Those were pretty much the worst out of all of them!! You know what I say to that? NAAAAAY!!! NAY again sirs and ladies! And let me tell you why. Grab my hand because this we may get separated running through these woods.
Happy October to all Brothers and Sisters in Evil Geekland! We’re popping in today to bring you the first edition of our new monthly feature: The Top 5 Thunderdome Throwdown!!! Every month each of our contributors will bring you their top 5 favorites in any random category. It could be our 5 favorite crappy comic movies, 5 favorite action figures, 5 favorite NES games, or pretty much anything else that pops into our Evil minds. We’re even open for suggestions, so if you’ve got a top five you’d like to see, then let us know in the Comments section. We’d love to hear your opinions too, so let us know your top five choices for this month in the comments as well!
Since October is clearly our favorite month, as it contains Halloween which is the most evil and geeky of all the holidays, we thought we’d start off by having the Evil Geeks list off their top favorite villains from any genre. Any person/place/thing that has done some pretty raw stuff to another person/place/thing ever in any medium is up for grabs in this Big Bad Free-For-All! Ready for our first Evil list down?! Here we go!
