The name is ridiculous, and the trailer is just okay, but there has been considerable buzz building around this Australian horror film, with many people citing as one of the scariest they've seen in a long time. It's currently scoring a very impressive 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is great for a horror movie, or any movie for that matter. I am definitely interested in seeing this one.

October is upon us, and with it comes the promise of another season of "American Horror Story". Season 4 sees the show telling the tale of a traveling freak show (as you probably guessed from the title), with most of the usual cast returning, along with a few unusual additions (Patti LaBelle?). While the premise makes it sound like it could be one of the series' crazier tales, the trailer makes it look somewhat more straightforward than usual. I guess we'll find out for sure when it begins on October 8.

CAPE MAY COUNTY HERALD
Who knew that getting back onto the same major label he so desperately wanted off of years ago would help Prince to get some of his creative mojo back again? After a string of independently released albums that were mediocre at best, he has returned to Warner Bros Records with the sort of record we had been waiting for him to make. The smart blend of classic R&B sounds with some of the modern electronic experimentation he had become known for in the 80's is a refreshing return to form for the artist. It may not rank amongst his all-time best releases, but it is certainly the best of his 21'st century output.
While director P.T. Anderson has yet to have made a bad movie in my opinion, has last 2 films ("The Master", "There Will Be Blood") have been somewhat more subdued, so it would be nice to see him return to the sort of sprawling, batshit-crazy dramas that helped him establish his name ("Boogie Nights", "Magnolia"). Luckily for me, based on the trailer, it looks like his latest project may be exactly what I'm looking for.

As anyone who recalls having seen the most infamous episode of Gordon Ramsey's "Kitchen Nightmares" ever filmed already knows, the owners of Amy's Baking Company are completely fucking insane. As such, this recent footage of one of the owners chasing a customer into the street whilst brandishing what appears to be a knife (they claim it's actually a pen) should come as no surprise. I honestly have no idea how these people manage to stay in business, but at least it provides for entertaining moments like this.
