... then you are missing out on one of the greatest horror movies you have probably never even heard of. Check out Clive Barker's Nightbreed (1990) so you can catch a glimpse of monsters, mayhem, and Dr. Dekker... played by the one and only David Cronenberg!!! Unreal.... just unreal. Make it happen people.

|"It's The Drunk Monk with a Quart of Balantine..."|
Evil Dead 2 (1987) - There are two reasons why I love this movie (and the franchise so much.) Number 1: Sam Raimi and the cast never take themselves to serious. They make you smile, while in the next scene they make you scream. It's like a bigger budgeted version of the first one (which was made on the cheap). I love the chainsaw scenes, and all the basement locking that takes place puts a smile on my mug. Number 2: I loved, loved, loved the box cover art above!!! That skull stuck with me for my whole childhood. Once I got a shot at seeing some horror flicks, I was renting this one quite regularly. I thoroughly recommend this one!!!!
Suspria - (1977) - I remember the first time I watched Suspiria. I had gotten my aforementioned 1 movie rental one day (this one recommended by the counter guy), and after I popped it into my VCR, I sat down and was not really to optomstic about it. Then the hanging scene (above) came on, and I almost choked on my popcorn... WTF was this??? The colors were so bright and vivid, the POV of the killer that has become Argento's trademark, and the total brutality of the kills (another Argento trademark) had me hooked. After it was done, the next day I confronted the counter guy and begged him for more... did this guy Argento make any other movies? He hit me off with a few more titles, and my life as a Argento fanboy was set in motion. Every top 10, 50 or 100 horror movie list I have ever seen has this in the top 5. There is a reason for that. Amazing... just amazing.
Bloodsuckng Freaks (1976) - Good. Fucking. God. Why is this my all time favorite scary movie, ever? Let me briefly explain: Midget henchman? Check. Psychotic hypnotist/magician/sadist? Check. Magic show that is really a snuff show? Check. Blowdarts? Check. Head drilling? Check. Brain being sucked through a straw? Check. Kidnapping & inprisionment of naked women? Check. Woman being used as a dinner table? Check... I can do this all day. Honestly, this is the sickest movie I have ever come across (and I have watched some sick ones, right Jeff, Bri & Taa? Turtle soup anyone...lol) It's a amazing precursor to the torture porn of Saw & Hostel by 25 years, the most bloody and violent movie I have ever seen, and its completely unapologetic approach towards violence makes it tough to watch again. I tried recently, and actually turned t off because it made me uncomfortable (despite the fact that I have seen it 100's of times). It's on Netflix Instant... just make sure no kids (or judgemental adults) are around when you induldge. Sick fun.
If you ever have read a Facebook blast about CCD, or ever read an article here at CCD for that matter, than you have probably witnessed some of Jeff Bond's handywork firsthand. When I started this site, I had a convo with Jeff. He told me that he loved what I was doing, and he wished he could do a site like CCD but he knew that he didn't have the dedication to be consistent. I told him that there were many other ways he could help... and all he has done is anything I have ever asked him and more. JB has become my right hand here at CCD... he ran the blog when I was on vacation, he posts and edits if I can't get to a computer, he comes up with some great posts himself (Lost show recaps, Lego Iconic, Like?Like!) and suggests most of the ideas that I later convert into stories via emails to me beforehand. CCD is getting pretty large right now, and its mostly do to the hard work of guys like Jeff (and the rest of my CCD crew... oh, and me... lol!) With no more time to waste, I bring you the Mad Doctor of CCD Jeffrey Bond's 3 Scariest Movie pics... gosh these are good!!!

|Susan Sarandon - The Rocky Horror Picture Show|
I absolutely adore The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Its one of my all time favorite movies, ever... not just horror movies, ALL MOVIES!!! In honor of the fact that I have watched this movie like 40,000 times at home, over 6 times in the theater, and once on Broadway I have decided to include my 5 favorite songs from the movie. I hope you enjoy these wonderful musical numbers... If you are a fan of Rocky Horror, leave a comment in the section below. Now.... Lets... Do... The... Time... Warp... Again!!!

I'm Going Home
I really thought they did a great job on the Glee Rocky Horror episode. They found a cool way to incorporate the musical into the flow of the show without just straight ripping it off. This was the highlight, by far...
Glee Cast - The Time Warp
Check out these two wonderful short films from friend of CCD's Joe Panther. This guy knows how to put some horrifying shit onto celluloid. This is why we love em!!!! Go to his Facebook page by clicking here to see some of Joe's great artwork and other stuff. Enjoy!!!
Demented Disneys - The title says it all! Demented Joe turning childhood icons into drugged out, psychotic, and destructive degenerates. That's what I do! I got a kick out of animating this. Now everyone wants a movie. Yeah right.. You want to pay me, bitch?! Nah.. I'd do it if I had any solid ideas behind it. I don't, unfortunately. Not one! Pisses me off..
Michael Myers: The Devil's Eyes - Speed drawings can be annoying. I wanted to get it done in under an hour, but it took nearly three hours to finish. Then all that compression to speed it up is ridiculous when you're using imovie. Final Cut all the way!I'm still considering selling this, but it won't be cheap. It's all ready framed and on my wall. So for that reason, it's worth more 'cause I'll have to part with it… And because it's from me, you should be honored and willing to pay more. :D
So here is part 2 of Peter & Benny, aka Two Swedes Sweding, tackling your favorite horror movies of all time. Hope you enjoy!!!
From Dusk Till Dawn (My Fave)
Evil Dead 2
Thanks to our good friend Bianca Sunshine Papas, we have yet another wonderful video to share with you guys during CCD's All Horror Week. Yesterday she gave us Russell Crowe in Rocky Horror, and today we get a short animated creep-fest of a film from Rodrigo Blaas entitles "Alma". Wow, this is a great one... pretty fucked up if you ask me. Its not exactly a Halloween film, but it certainly is spooky. Hope you enjoy!!!
MARVEL ZOMBIES vs ARMY OF DARKNESS
Okay, Marvel Zombies is depressing…but Ashley J. Williams killing them is not. The story begins with Ash having died (something from his own comic series that I didn’t read), and waiting in line at the gates of Heaven…but when he turns around, he sees that people in line are currently acting as lunch for a now zombified Sentry. In an attempt to escape, Ash falls into the Marvel Zombies universe…and the sh*t hits the fan from there. Ash’s journey takes him from beating up Daredevil because he thinks he’s a bad guy, to hitting on Scarlet Witch, to accidentally leading to Spider-Man’s infection, to witnessing the version of himself from his world killed (eaten by none other than Howard the Duck), to killing said duck (see above), then going all the way to Latveria to ask for help from none other than Doom himself. Ash thinks the Necronomicon is at work here, and Doom is the one who currently owns it. The mini-series combines the same comedy and horror as Army of Darkness does, and boy is it groovy.
NEAL ADAMS’ MONSTERS
Superman/Batman is a monthly that focuses not so much on current goings on in the DCU, and really just tells stories about whatever the writer at the time wants. This month’s ish doesn’t star Superman, or Batman, but rather Supergirl and Robin! Supergirl needs help on a case, so she goes to Gotham to find the world’s greatest detective (in this case, Dick Grayson, since Brucie is MIA still). Instead, she finds Damian Wayne, the newest Robin! Damian and Supergirl don’t get along very well…in fact, anyone and Damian don’t get along very well (Except for Batman and Alfred). Damian is a 10 year who acts like a 40 year old, arrogant mastermind…and it’s fantastic! The two team up, infiltrate a Halloween party, run into the Scarecrow (is there a better Batman villain for the Halloween season?), etc, etc. Damian is such a fun character to read, and is an especially a fun character when he’s making fun of Batgirl or Supergirl. Definitely worth it for the interplay!
There ya go, folks! Some of the spookiest comics to pick up for the season! Happy Halloween!

When I think favorite, I think FUN. I love The Shining and The Exorcist and consider them to be two of the best horror films ever made, but that doesn't mean they'd make the cut for a list titled 'My Favorites'. So here are what I consider to be my three FAVORITE horror films of all time, as evidenced by how often I find myself popping them into my DVD player.
Thanks to CCD reader Bianca Sunshyne Papas, we get this excellent fan shot video of Russell Crowe performing as both Eddie & Dr. Scott in a 1987 stage version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show from Melbourne, Australia. Looks like a fun production... shout out to Bianca for sharing, and Jezebel.com for the post. It's a long way from Gladiator & A Beautiful Mind, but Russ represents well. Check it out!!
Oooohh, I do, I do!!! If you attend Saw 3-D on opening night October 28th, you will receive a special pair of 3-D glasses that will say "I Saw It First 10.28.10" on the side!!! That's just another reason for you to go out and support the highest grossing horror franchises final installment. Also, check out this cool piece of viral marketing: A blog written by survivors of Jigsaw!!! Click here to check it out! Do you guys plan on seeing Saw 3-D? Does Jigsaw & the gang have enough to knock Paranormal Activity 2 out of the top box office spot? Please leave some feedback and comments below. Go see Saw 3-D Tonight!!!!!!!
