Rap star Eminem is plotting a return to the big screen with Shady Talez, a 3-D horror anthology written by Kevin Grevioux (Underworld). Described as Creep Show meets Twilight Zone, Shady Talez will pay homage to classic horror flicks such as The Lost Boys and Aliens. Eminem will play various roles in the film, including that of host. Considering Em’s highly publicized mommy issues, an ode to Psycho’s Norman Bates seems like a no-brainer to me.
Eminem dabbled with horror themes earlier this year in the music video for “3 a.m.” The track is off his Relapse CD and is just one of many songs fueled by serial killer fantasies.
Eminem made his film debut in 2002’s critically acclaimed drama 8 Mile.
Jennifer’s Body didn’t show legs at the box office this Fall, but Fox Home Entertainment is looking to get better traction over the holiday season with an Unrated Version of the Megan Fox frightener, available Dec. 29 on Blu-ray disc and standard DVD. While both editions include audio commentary from director Karyn Kusama and Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno), the film’s Blu-ray release is crammed with special bonus material, including video diaries, gag reels, deleted scenes (”Ass, Gas, or Grass” sounds particularly enticing), featurettes, and the wickedly funny Megan Fox “Peer Pressure” PSA.
Jennifer’s Body stars Megan Fox as a high school heartbreaker turned man-eater after a fateful encounter with a band of satanists. Amanda Seyfried plays her best friend and foil. Despite its quality kills and quotable dialogue (”It smells like Thai food in here. Have you guys been fucking), the horror-comedy failed to find its audience. To date, the film has only grossed $16 million.
She's Got Books That Kill
Jennifer’s Body most likely took a beating at the box office its opening weekend for two reasons: 1.) the R rating forced the much sought after under 17 chronic masturbator market to buy tickets to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs to gain entry into the theater and consequently into Jennifer’s Body. 2.) Girls that don’t look like Megan Fox dragged their boyfriends to see The Informant.
Guys, listen to the teachings of Texas Tech coach Mike Leach. Don’t let your “fat little girlfriends” influence you. If you have the means this Christmas, I highly recommend you pick up Jennifer’s Body on Blu-ray.
