Back Story:A very sad story indeed. Scarlett is a beautiful name, but not this long deceased maiden’s. Our fair maiden was the daughter of a wealthy man in Dublin, Ireland. Way back in the 1500′s she was betrothed to a young ship captain. Everytime he was away, she would look out her window facing the sea and wait. Typical sea romance right? Little did our young filly know that her husband was pirate using her fathers great docks to have safe harbor. He may have loved her, it may have been a cover…no one knows! One day a rival pirate had finally caught up with the young pirate. Captured his ship and killed everyone aboard. Whilst looking through hos effects, he found letters from his bride and the charts to the port. This peaked the rival captains interest and they set sail in his nemesis ship. No one suspected a thing. The ruthless pirates destroyed everything and killed all of the maidens family leaving her for last. As a cruel joke, the Captain told her he had left her husband on a small boat in the ocean, so he may make it back. In a fit of rage she grabbed his sword and managed to give him a nasty cut over his eye. He slapped her to the ground. But when he did, he head hit a rock and killed her. She has stayed on those grounds for centuries waiting for her one true love. Unable to pass on, her mourning turned her into a banshee. She has forgotten almost everything of her life. Now she simply warns of deaths around the area…always alone.
Meeting Malice: Remember when I said that she didn’t remember her name? That’s true! Her name Scarlett actually comes from a fallen piece of wall. But I’m getting ahead of myself! I have to say one of my top five favorite places in most worlds is Ireland. Be it the people, the culture, or the booze…I find them fascinating. So it’s not uncommon that I find myself strolling the country side or the coast. I happened across this poor dear wailing in the ruins of her home. I’ve seen many banshees in my time, but never have I felt so sympathetic toward one. I conversed with her for a bit before catching her up to date. It was hard for her at first, but I have this way with ectoplasm. Now she is well-adjusted, and taking pictures for my site…Oh her name! Yeah, she said she couldn’t remember it…so I saw that work on the ruined wall…and named her that!
Hello Freaky Darlings! Sorry for the absence. Been sorting somethings out in my head (Cheshire Cats have problems too!) Anyway, I found sometime in all of that to have a visit to the theater and take a peak at the new Marvel film, Iron Man 3. I was rather pleased I’m so happy to report. So nervous I get when they go on a streak of good movies. That normally means a big turd is on the horizon. Still though, I did find a few flaws with it. Not everything can be perfect right?
Psychotik Review: Iron Man 3
Since this is a sequel in a trilogy of three, my standard rules for a review just can’t apply. So let’s sum up some of the small stuff and get into the film. As usual the casting was good, but you knew that. The only new characters that were of any importance were Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin (not that this incarnation was import…you know what later, later…) The visual effects were great, story moved smoothly—ish. Nice follow-up all around to The Avengers and Iron Man 2. Problems then?
Well remember when I added an “ish” to the end of smoothly? Well that’s because a small bit in the middle got a little dodgy. Not to say it was slow, it just got a bit scattered. It’s only for about 10-15 minutes toward the middle of the film. Not a damnable offense, but still worth mentioning. Next part I have to alert people with…
OK I wasn’t thrilled with The Mandarin at all. I was rather nervous about Ben Kingsley to start out with (He’s not Asian!) It get’s sort of better when you find out he’s not THE Mandarin from the comics. Really he is a fall guy. But up until that point you get irked as they make Mandarin out to be nothing more than your common grade, run of the mill terrorist. This is remedied when you find out Ben Kingsley is a Drug Addict that Killian pays to be a face for his “accidental” Extremis detonations. Still…I was excited to see the Mandarin from the comics. This direction of dragging comics into the real world I blame on Nolan’s Batman. You already had aliens, what the hell is the deal with having the Mandarin be a magical bad ass? Hmm….Maybe they will state later he was based off the myth of the real Mandarin. The fake one was wearing the ten rings after all.
My Next issue was the Extremis itself. Although I did think it was cool, I didn’t see the point in changing it. Instead of a type of nanite it’s a bi compound derived from a plant. The route they went wasn’t bad…it just was odd they went that route. You also see the name drop of A.I.M, the think tank company ran by M.O.D.O.K. Now I don’t know if they are going to go further with that. I do know at first glance it seems that Killian is the one running it, but he could also be a fall man himself. You do see him on the phone a bunch of times talking to a higher authority figure. You start to think that it’s the Mandarin, but by the end of the movie, you realize that in no way is that the case. Could he have been talking to M.O.D.O.K? I don’t know, but shame on them for not developing that further.
****End of Spoiler Alert****
Let’s end this on a positive note though. I did like that Stark had his arsenal of suits. Would have been nice to see more diverse powers for each one. The only one you really see a diverseness in power is Mark 42 and IGOR. The remote controlling of the suits are cool as well. Loved seeing Iron Patriot. This is of course another moment in the history of the movies that you hate Sony owning Spider-Man. Just think it would have been cool to see Norman Osborn at the helm. But hey, promise you things happen in the movie that will make you happy none the less with that suit. You even get to see Pepper kick some ass…you’ll see. Last positive I will mention is the after credits scene. It doesn’t lead off to another film, but it is a comedic scene with Bruce Banner himself.
After everything was said and done, I still give this movie a 4 out of 5 Top Hats. It has it’s problems…yes. But it is still a pretty entertaining flick with a high re watch value. Can’t wait for Thor: The Dark World. We will see if that one lives up to the original. It has big Godlike boots to fill…lol.
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Hair Color and Style: Brown on top, black on the bottom. A little past shoulder length and layered.
Eyes: Light Brown
Bust Size: C
Clothing: Typical human clothing, tends to gravitate toward black.
Other Identifiable Traits: She has fallen into human modification customs and now sports nine tattoos and a handful of piercings.
Race: Fallen Angel
Crew Position: Psychotik Girl and Left Hand Writer (Get it LEFT hand….hee hee hee hee)
Favorite Music: Listens to everything. She thinks music is one of the best creations humanity has come up with.
Favorite Movies: All of the Legally Blonde movies, everything in the Avengers series.
Favorite Books: Anything she can get her hands on. She has a tendency to reread the Thomas Covenant series though.
Guilty Pleasures: In all this time she has been on Earth…she has accumulated a taste for a multitude of interesting things…LOTS of things…
Back Story: Luci had been an angel thousands of years ago. She was one of the first. She had been there for her brother Lucifer’s fall. At this time though, her name was Ariel. It didn’t sit well with Ariel, how her other brothers had cast Lucifer down into the fires of hell just for refusing to love the flawed humans. Ariel didn’t see a reason to love them either, honestly. They were messy and dirty and destroying each other – and their home – at a rapid pace. When her brothers figured out that she was in the same mindset, they cast her down as well… but to the earth. She was punished to live amongst the humans. Most of her angel powers and communication capabilities were stripped, but they allowed her to keep her longevity and her wings. The latter aren’t visible to the naked human eye, though. She was crushed and felt utterly betrayed, and when a stranger found her on the side of the road and asked her name, she gave the name Luci in homage to her fallen brother. She’s gone by that ever since. She spent the past few decades blending in with the humans, falling into some of their darker customs. She knows where her brother is and what he does, and she tends to help demons make deal with stupid mortals for her own amusement. In meeting all these other magical creatures, she is starting to think they’re way more interesting than her angelic siblings. Maybe a life of sin is way more fun than a life in the clouds.
Meeting Malice: I hope you all believe me when I say it is rare to come across a Fallen bound to Earth. Sure, you can see plenty of Fallen in The Pit, but seeing one in flesh in Earth Realm in any dimension? That’s rare! (Unless you are in one of 100 worlds where Earth realm has fallen…to…well The Fallen…) I just so happened across her at seedy little dive in Rhode Island. She was eying a struggling band, getting ready to set them up with a good Cross Roads Demon. My tip-off was the large expansive wings it seemed nobody noticed. I got a good rise out of her by vaporating around the room. Apparently she had never met a real live Cheshire Cat before. Two hours and 2 dozen tormented people later…I found out she was Lucifer’s sister…It was at that point, I realized I had to have her! She would be my left hand minion (Bartleby and Baxter make up the right…takes two of them to make one…)
This is the first chapter to an anthology of short stories I’m writing. I will try to keep up with them pretty regularly. This is the set up, and I hope you enjoy it…
It was a dark and stormy night, as it is in most stories like this. The kind of story where a group of people make a wrong turn on a back road. Of course that might have not happened had Jeremy not left his GPS at the last stop. You see, Jeremy and his friends were returning home from a long exhausting trip. They had been on a road trip to collecting stories for a book about little known legends. Murderers, Myths, Madmen…anything they thought would get people’s attention. The trip was nearly a success, but there was still something missing. They had all collected some really juicy stories, but they all lacked that special hook. Jeremy just kept thinking over and over in his head about what could make it better. Really he should have been thinking about the fact they were in the middle of nowhere about to run out of gas. This was a fact he was alerted to when the engine sputtered to a halt.
“Good one asshole!” chimed a very unhelpful Steve. Steve had been complaining, as per his usual self, for the last 4 hours. He was the one friend in the group that was there just to be a pain in everyone elses ass. “If you would have left it in the window like I said, we wouldn’t be in this mess! Like someone is really going to smash your window and take it. Everyone has GPS these days Jeremy, even the fucking thieves!”
“Could you please just try to be more helpful Steve…” squeaked a very nervous Alex. Alex was the peace keeper of them all. Mostly because he was so timid, you would feel like the most depraved bully in the world yelling at him. He almost resembled a chihuahua. The kind that would shake and piss itself if you looked at it wrong.
The fourth friend of the group sat quiet. Travis was the mysterious brooding type. Or so he put on for everyone else. You wouldn’t believe the woman you pull in acting like a bad copy of one of those tween-vampire-romance types. If girls really new most of the time he was appearing to look off into space he was playing Poke’mon on his handheld system, he wouldn’t be near as popular. The most he mustered was a killer look to the front seat where Steve continued to run at the mouth.
“Alex shut up before you pass out…I’m just saying if you hadn’t screwed up Jeremy, we could have been home by now!”
Jeremy slowed the car down and threw the car into Park. “Alright Steve! I’ve had enough of your shit! I’m sorry I fucked up your night, but if you would spend more time looking at the map we might know where we are. Ya’ think you can do that!?” barked a very annoyed driver. At the very least keep an eye out for a hotel or gas station…”
Steve looked up with a disgusted look, “You think we’re going to find a hotel out here!? Jeremy, all I’ve seen for the last couple hours is dead trees. Not to mention it is raining so hard…YOU CAN’T SEE SHIT!!!!”
Jeremy went to yell when he was cut off by a yelp from Alex, “YOU TWO…Please…STOP FIGHTING!!!”
The driver looked forward and switched the car back into Drive, “Just keep your mouth shut Steve. If you don’t have anything helpful to tell me…just shut up”
It would seem that this once “rad” road trip had taken a turn for the worst. The quartet stayed quite for another couple of miles before they finally caught sight of a faint light up ahead. It was hard to tell but as they neared the light, it got brighter. Strangely enough the rain seemed to calm down as well. Within seconds it became clear they had found some sort of house in the middle of the woods. Haunted house was really a more accurate description. The house appeared very old and had an odd purple trim over a worn grey wood exterior. The sign outside read “Welcome to the Malicious Manner…Bed and Breakfast.”
Steve exclaimed, “Does that really say ‘Malicious Manner…bed and Breakfast’? Oh Jeremy we have to stop here! Looks like our luck is turning around.” Steve crossed his arms and tried to make it look like he had a positive outlook the whole time.
“Well we do need directions and it is kind of late. Top it off, one last stop for the book might not be a bad thing. I mean it certainly does have that charm. What do the rest of you think?” asked Jeremy.
“I…I think it’s alright. Looks like something out of a horror movie. Might be a nice gimmick for the cover too.” It was the most excited meek little Alex seemed all trip.
Travis looked up lazily until he saw it in all it’s greatness. That was when the melancholy boy’s face turned to a grin. “We need to do this!”
“Well, it’s decided then…to the Malicious Manner it is!” shouted the leader of the troop. With that they turned into the drive way and drove the dirt road to the creepy manner. Pulling up to the building, they realized it had stopped raining completely. The air around the place was chilly and other worldly. Stepping out of the car, a strange gust of wind blew past them inviting them up the stairs to the enormous domicile.
“Wow, this place is a lot bigger than what it looked from the road!” exclaimed Alex, who seemed to be unusually energetic about going into a creepy looking mansion. “Looks really old too. Like something out a horror movie.” A small smile crossed his face.
The others got out of the car and the four made their way to the door. Stepping onto the porch, a ragged out welcome mat lay in front of the entrance. Upon the door rested a door knocker and a sign that read “Knock Once for Mail, Twice for Tea, Three for Service, Repeatedly for and Emergency…” Half laughed at the silly sign while the other half looked on with curiosity. Jeremy thought it was real neat and took out his camera to take a picture. Travis leaned himself on a porch support as if to wait impressively for whoever may open the door.
“So, I guess I knock three times?” asked Jeremy
“No dumb ass! Knock two times! Let’s have some freakin’ tea! What do you think?” snapped Steve.
Jeremy shot a sharp look back his way before lifting the enormous door knocker and doing as the sign read to get some service. The echo of the knocks echoed loudly through the manor. All four stood in silence for what seemed like eons wondering what would happen next. Steve grew wildly impatient, “Well whats taking so damn long!?” As the words left his mouth he grabbed the knocker and began beating the door repeatedly. “HELLO!!!? ANYONE THER–?” he was cut off as the door creaked open.
As the door grew wider a gentleman in a top hat sat behind a desk. “You’re very impatient aren’t you? You don’t know how to wait for someone to answer the door?” asked the stranger. All they could do was stand there looking inside at who seemed to be the inn keeper. “Well…are you going to stand there all night or are you going to come inside? There are things out there I would rather not let in here and an equal amount of things in here I’d rather not let out there.” as the man said this he nodded his head and motioned his hand for the boys to come in.
The boys moved in to the arch of the door looking at the lavished insides of the house. The house was just as big on the inside as it was out. Everything looked very nice despite being a bit dusty. Still not what you would have expected from the rougher looking exterior. A look around the room revealed a grand staircase to the right of the room that was lined with paintings of different people from different eras. Seemingly this lead up to the rooms. To the left of the room was what looked like a parlor or a den with many pieces of lavished furniture. The shelves of the room were filled with books and other statues and sculptures. In the middle of the room was the desk with the top hatted man now standing looking at the awe-stricken boys. “So….well your all very quiet. Weren’t that quiet a minuet ago…what’s a matter? Cat got your tongue!” the man asked with a grin.
Snapping to himself, Jeremy answered him, “Very sorry sir! We are a little lost, pretty low on gas, and it’s really late so we figured we would see if we could get a room for the night!”
“A room for the night eh? Well you’re in luck! I have a room open.” grinned the man
“Oh, good! You’re a life saver man.” Jeremy said relieved. “Alex you and Travis want to go get the our stuff?”
Alex nodded. He and Travis left the group to go get the bags from the car leaving Jeremy and Steve standing in the presence of the inn keeper. Jeremy, now recomposed to his normal self smiled smugly. “So, what’s up with this place? You some type of road side thing? We’ve been all over the place and never heard of you before.”
The man behind the counter smiled from ear to ear as he leaned across the desk. His furry face an wild hair adding to the effect. “Oh, you wouldn’t have heard of me. I move around a lot from place to place. Never like to stay in one place to long. After all there are only so many things you can learn about an area before it starts to get old. You might say people who come across me, do so by chance.”
The group looked back at him with a mixture of confusion and delight. If this guy was half as interesting as he looked it may be just what they were looking for. Jeremy spoke up for the group, “So you travel a lot? Nice! We are actually writing a book on little known urban myths and legends. More like a grouping of strange or scary stories from around America. Think you know any good ones?”
With that, the man behind the counter jumped over the desk and stood in front of them with such a look of absolute pleasure. His eyes wide and furry face smiled on for a good minute before he replied back. “Do I have stories?! My sirs, I am Malice Psychotik! Story telling is my passion! Really it’s the main reason I travel so much. I keep my eye on people here and there. You wouldn’t believe some of the stories you come across if you just look…and listen.” Malice was over joyed just thinking about telling a large group his stories, but then he realized a few key things that Jeremy had said. “But…you boys are writers huh? I’m usually not in the practice of telling people my stories so they can run off and write about it. My stories are more meant for word of mouth. I just feel like writing them down takes some of the emotion out of it. Story telling is an ancient art after all. Writing it down takes the story-teller out of it…Sort of just makes it words.”
Steve wasn’t going to let this one slip through their fingers. So he did what he does best, thought up a lie and said what he thought Malice wanted to hear. “I totally agree with you. When we first started this venture that was one of my main problems. But through this whole process, you know what I’ve come to realize? What better way to spread these stories to people across the world than the printed word!? You can’t very well travel around telling everyone these amazing stories right? You just have to make sure that you write it with passion. And that’s what we do…every story treated like it was the thing of legends!”
Malice pursed his lips and gave a sideways glance. He could smell bullshit from a mile away and this guy reeked of a sewer. “Well, I do have a few stories I could hand over for your book. But, I don’t think I’m going to hand over any of my best ones. To a being such as myself though…even the not so good stories are great stories. Tell you boys what, I’ll sign you up for a room for the night. You go up stairs and settle in. Then come down here and meet me in the den. I’ll spin you a few tales by the light of the fire-place, and show you what real story telling is. How does that sound?”
“Sounds great! We’ll take it.” said Jeremy. He looked back a t Steve who smiled in triumph. Malice gave them a key and pointed to the upstairs instructing them which room to take their things. By this time the other two were back and the boys went up stairs. Everything was going seemingly well.
When the boys were done unpacking for the night, they met in the large den Malice had mentioned. A fire had been lit and some drinks were served on the coffee table in the center of the room. The room was just as lavish as the rest of the house with fine furniture and countless shelves of books. Other shelves held odd trinkets from what seemed to be all over the world. About the time the boys sat down, Malice entered the room. They all looked on in amazement, as this was the first time they noticed how he was dressed. From head to toe he was dressed in a top hat with a large purple sash that trailed behind him. Around that was a pair of goggles with purple lenses. He wore a large black coat with purple lapels and cuffs. Under that he had on two shirts. One was a black button down shirt that was unbuttoned to reveal a black t-shirt with a skull on it. On his hands he wore black and purple striped gloves that were fingerless. To finish out the ensemble he had on black pants with white pin stripe. He strolled over to a large arm-chair and poured into it propping a leg on the arm. “Are you boys ready then?”
The group all looked at one another and nodded to their host. Malice grasped his cup in one hand. It appeared to have a cloudy green liquid in it that had an odd smell to it. He swirled it around and took a deep drink. Taking a deep breath he stared intently at he glass and heaved a sigh, “Now that’s good! Let’s get started hmm? It was a dark and stormy night that the group of five travelers found themselves in the company of a mysterious stranger. They all sat by the fire in the grand old mansion. There he….” the story-teller was cut short.
“Hey now! I thought you said you had some good ones. This just sounds like one similar to us. I’ve seen it a million times. Guys sits us down to a story and it’s surprisingly just like us. That crap may work for your average tourist, but it ain’t going to work on us.” snapped Steve.
Malice looked on in amazement. “So it’s my understanding you want something with…shall we say…a little more bite to it?”
“Yeah, you know something with base and substance…” said Jeremy.
“Well…I could tell you the REALLY good stuff…but if you record it or try to use it for your book…I’ll have ta kill ya.’ As the words left his throat and passed his teeth the room grew cold and the lights seemed to dim. Malice looked on at the boys intensely as they seemed to grow nervous until finally he broke the silence with a boisterous laugh! The boys laughed as well, although still shaken. “So we have an understanding then? Good…Take your drinks in deep boys and hold on tight. These stories are not for the faint of heart. They come from the darkest side of your mind and some like to creep from the dark places you would all like to forget. You know the funny thing about fairy tales and horror stories is?” Malice paused, “The best ones start with Once Upon a Time…”
Well that’s was the first chapter. Stay tuned as we will continue with “Edgar Cartwright: The Butcher of Ft. Drum”
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Hello there Freaky Darlings! I hope all is well on this fine day. Glad to see things have cooled down a bit in my neck of the woods. t won’t last long though I assure you. Don’t know why I’m complaining about the heat anyway. Have you ever been on a planet with Five suns when they are all risen in the summer? Not pleasant I tell you what…you know what is pleasant though? A LITTLE NEWS!! Yep, got some stuff for Fatality Fest, some rumor on that groovy Harry Potter Phase 2 project at Universal, AND the first little bit of HHN 23 whispers have started to trickle out. All of this…and maybe more on…
THE PSYCHOTIK NEWS ASYLUM!!!
I’m going to end with the fatality Fest News…make you sweat! DON’T YOU DARE SCROLL DOWN! I’ll know and I’ll call you a filthy cheater! Anyway, I’ve been looking around for news on the new Potterverse Project at Universal Studios Orlando. Things are really tight-lipped at this point. Security cameras are everywhere and no one is able to get very close. So far there are rumors that you will be able to venture into Borgin and Burkes, the creepy dark wizard shop in Nocturne Ally. the only other bit I’ve found that was interesting is rumors about the Hogwarts Express. So far rumor is it will have no less than six different experiences. Of those you can only imagine one will have to be a Dementor attack like in the 3rd book/movie. I can’t wait. I know I’m in the minority when I say I say i WANT to see a Dementor attack…but something is alluring about getting to see them with no danger…um…this time…Anyway. The last rumor making its way around is a possible opening date of June 2014. More specifically, June 11, 2014. So far they seem to be on track to that goal, but things can happen between know and then. We shall see….
Next order of business, HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS 23! Nothing too hot, just some stirrings that we may see some info sooner than later. Apparently, the Legendary Truth page has been a buzz since it’s lock down back in January. This much is true though, the dates have been released. The dates are as follows: Sept. 20-21, 26-29, Oct. 3-6, 10-13, 16-20, 23-27, and Oct. 31-Nov. 2. I know it’s not much, but hey it’s something. Maybe they will come forward with some more info soon. We can dream till then right?
Last thing I want to share is some news from Fatality Fest. The show had a pretty nice announcement last night. Fatality Fest has added Joe Bob Briggs to their list of guests. Most of you may know Mr. Briggs as the host of TNT’s MonsterVision. Fond memories of that show. That same time frame brought us the Monday night wars between WWF and WCW. Would always watch it after that…those were the days…ahhh! Fatality Fest is growing as we speak, I really do think this convention is going to be a new staple event in Florida. Viva la Fatality Fest!
That’s all for now Freaky Darlings! Keep a look out this week…you never know what’s in store!

Guilty Pleasure: Likes to play with her food…
Back Story: Werewolves walk amongst you everyday and you would never know it. Then again, that’s the goal. So when most people look at Celestria, you would see a beautiful woman, but not know her more wild secret. For every full moon she makes the turn into her wolf form, stalking the Alaskan wilderness for prey. So watch it guys…treating this one like a piece of meat…might make her treat YOU like one later.
Meeting Malice: Oh, do I ever remember meeting Celestria. There really is nothing like walking the Alaskan wilderness at night. I do love that…oh what is it called? Aurora Borealis! So pretty…Not to mention it will do wonders for your back if you vaporate into it. Anyway, I was out for a stroll to clear my head, when a stunning white furred creature crossed my path. I decided to follow it. A rare animal such as this can’t be left unappreciated. When I tracked her down, she was feeding on a bear. When she noticed me standing there, her head shot up. We stood staring for a bit. Blood and meat dripped off of her mouth. The 7’0 wolf lunged at me and hit nothing but air. I’m not going to let that thing touch me, it was covered in blood. Seras said she would kill me if I got blood on my clothes again and she wasn’t there. I then decided to have some fun. I picked up a nice sized branch and hurled it over her head. To my amusement, she retrieved it for me. You see folks, although lycans are big and scary, deep down they are still in the canine family. and what canine doesn’t like a good game of fetch? I indulged until she got tired and lay down. After she awoke the next morning naked and in the snow, I could very well leave her. So I covered her with my coat and offered to walk her back to her home. It wasn’t long after that, I offered her to come stay at the mansion. Seras said we could keep her…as long as she was house broken…she is.
Psychotik Review: Bitch Slap
Ahoy Freaky Darlings! Sorry it’s late but clean up has been horrendous! Still though, this is whats happening in this Psychotik World!
The last two weeks have been extra busy…and full of death! I’ll get to that in a minuet. This time I want to start off with sports. Last week was the end of March Madness and apparently Louisville won it against Michigan. I don’t follow basketball, but I realize there are some that do. Maybe if some of you Freaky Darlings give me a good sell, I’ll cover it all next year…but until then, that is your results…which I’m sure you all new anyway. Last Sunday’s Wrestlemania 29 saw some amazing results. Encyclopedia Psychotika favorite Undertaker is now 21 – 0. Love that he absolutely smashed CM Punk for a win. I need to catch up on RAW this week. Brock Lesner was destroyed by HHH, so we get to see his…um…well his mug! The Rock fell to John Cena is a good clean match. Big Show screwed over Shaemus and Randy Orton and they lost to the Sheild. I hate the Sheild with a passion, but you know I love to hate them which means they work as bad guys. Um, let’s see…OH Ryback was upset by Mark Henry. Lumpy fell on his head and knocked him out cold. Then when Ryback was being attended to, he tried to attack him and it didn’t work in his favor. One meat hook and a Shellshock later, The Worlds Strongest Chump was out…Ha Ha! So all in you had some yays and some boos…but hey people that promotes story!
In the world of entertainment, not much is going on really. Not a hell of a lot good coming out in theaters. I think all of the good stuff will start pouring in May kicking off the summer and then going into the fall/winter box office smashes. Most TV series are about spent for the time being. This is just a down time of year in that department. Just an eh week coming up…Take this opportunity to go see Evil Dead it’s freakin’ sweet!
Now to those Deaths I was talking about. Leading up to this was a real What the Hell?” type of week. Last week on the fourth there was news of Roger Ebert. Surely, you all know what he was famous for. I’m sure some out there welcome the death of a critic, but you know what he was a damn good one. He will be missed. I’m sure Gene was waiting on him to watch one real kick ass movie. Then this week on the same day April 8th we have Annette Funicello, Margret Thatcher, and Richard Brooker. Annette was a singer and one of the first members of the Mickey Mouse Club (and the most famous of that era to boot). The Baroness Thatcher was the very first (and so far only) woman to become Prime Minister of the UK. She also held the position for the longest in the whole 20th century. Very inspirational lady indeed. Finally Richard Brooker you may only know if you are an avid horror fan and con goer. Richard was the first to put on the mask as Jason in Friday the 13th: Part 3. Still haven’t heard how. He was supposed to attend Fatality Fest in June. I may not have fond memories to share with you all of him, but others do and to his fans he will be missed. I’m sure if he ends up in the Psychotik Crypt (I’ll explain that someday to you) Bartleby and Baxter will keep him company…If I ever decide to let them out of the Iron Maiden that is.
Before we go, Fatality fest has had some news. Passing it on, Tony Todd has had to cancel. He had some stuff come up, and we will all miss him…but still understandable. Guests that have been added include: Oliver Robbins (Poltergeist), Jimmy O and April Burril (Chainsaw Sally), Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet), J Larose (Saw 3, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Devils Carnival), Danny Hicks (Evil Dead 2), Joey Kern (Cabin Fever), Judith Shekoni (Breaking Dawn: Part 2) and Christopher Judge (Stargate: SG1). Still more to come so keep an ear to the ground!
That’s all for this week Freaky Darlings. Things should be back on track next week…I hope…
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Ello there poppits. Your temp hosts Bartleby…
Here to bring you a list of the Top 10 most Gruesome Ways to Die. It took us a lot of digging in the graveyard, but I think we got a good list for ya’! First thought I’d like to tell you this is all coming to you live from the bedroom of Malice and Seras.
Yeah, the connection broke in the Crypt Boss so we had ta come in here.
They sure do have a lot of things in here don’t they? Did you look in the closet? Seras has a closet full of shiet! Oh hey they got a Risk board game! Let’s grab that for later.
Bartleby, I don’t think you ought ta be…
Pipe down you big nancy! I’m just having a look see…Oh wow it opened a secret passage! Would you look at all the….
….That’s a lot of sex toys…Let’s just get to the list huh?
Right! Here we go…At the top of our list countin’ down, we have Shot Gun Blast to the face! Didn’t take us long to find him.The corpse we dug up was one of Jonny “Two Fingers” Doger. Apparently he was skimming a little too much off the top of his dealers cash and met his end with a snap shot from a Mossberg.
Really a big mess he is. Teeth knocked right out the back of his skull. Very simple, but a real nasty way to bite it. I’ve got your number nine right here though. Number nine is from a bloke that didn’t know how to pay the protection money on his business to the mob. So he got a visit from a little thing called an earwig of the carnivorous variety. You may think, this isn’t gory, but it’s when you open up his skull that you see the real carnage. The little blighter carved out his own little nook in the brain matter and layed eggs. When the eggs hatched…well you can imagine…
His brain looks like a nice hunk of swiss cheese…Oh man…to top it off, he was alive through it all. Screaming in pain and no one knew how to fix it.
I got that beat with number eight though. You can’t really see what an earwig does without an autopsy. This one you could tell straight away. This one was a gang member that narced a the gang leader and got him put in the clinker. You see, his gang buddies found him and decided to bring the pain. Just started out as routine beating that would have ended in a shot to the head. However, the enforcer felt a little creative. He had two others hold this guy down and put about six sub way rats on his stomach. Then he covered em’ with a bucket and set small fire on top of it. As the heat started to rise, the rats needed a way out. So they found one…through his stomach. Two out the mouth, one out the back side, and another chewed through his chest like a chest burster alien. Came out right when the detectives were looking too!
Oh man that’s a bad one, but I got one an award winner here…a Darwin Award winner! Daredevils do a lot of stupid things, non more stupid than amateur daredevil Bucky Calhoun. Bucky was tired of jumping cars and going through flaming hoops. He had to do something so amazing, it would go in the record books. He wanted to find a way to fly. It started with the idea to hang glide over a dangerous chasm. Then it evolved to wanting to make that glider go super fast…rocket powered. Like I said though, he was poor. So he went and bought a whole shit load of fire works and strapped them to his back and all over the glider. On the day he performed the stunt, he thought nothing could go wrong. He jumped off the side and got to gliding around. Then he lit his makeshift rocket pack. It worked…like a charm. Too bad he forgot fireworks explode. One thing is for sure…it was entertaining.
Next one is courtesy of a druggie big shot keeping his stash where it ought not be. You see this guy Gorbatrov keeps his angel dust right out in the open so all can have when they come over for parties. Also to try to look like a big shot. unfortunately, things had been getting rough and he needed some protection. So he got himself some nice guard dogs. Wolf Hybrids…beutiful beasts. Well after he got them, he never learned to keep his stash put away. So…one night not too long after he got them, both dogs got into the shit. Man if fucked them up good. So good that they forgot how to obey commands…hell they didn’t even think he or anyone else was who they were. Nope they were seeing all kinds of shit. What ever it was delicious though…cause they ate ol’ Gorbatrov up…
Our next bit of carnage is one of my favorite enforcer tactics. The Colombian Neck Tie. What happens is, you get a fucking good stomping at the hands of your enforcer. Then, when he’s done and wants to make his example, he slits you from side to side giving you the ol’ big grin. Then they pull your tongue out the hole and lay it out on yer chest for all to see. Not many really want to mess with you after that. Interesting fact, they credit that move to Colombians and they werent the first ta use it. No it was actually an Irishman by the name of Murray “Hooligan” O’Reilly. In truth it should be called the Irish Neck Tie…Fun fact for ya…
Now that we are getting to the top of the list, it’s time for real gory stuff. Nothing scares people quite as much as nuclear power. Dave Adams was a humble 9 to 5′er at a state power plant. Did everything right and what was required of him. Never took risks. Sometimes, ya don’t have to take risks for the Reaper to find ya’. One day while at work they were having heating issues near one of the main reactors. He was sent in for a routine check-aroo…the area was cleared…everything went as planned…except for Rodney. Rodney was second-rate flunky that only took his drug habit seriously. Today he had just finished baking after lunch and went back to his post. Not caring to check in at all, he saw a heating vent was closed. Just so happens, Dave wasn’t visible and Rodney flipped the switch. It was too late once they heard the scream wail across the radios. By the time the vents were closed, Dave was a melty mess…and died only 6 hours later….
Oh man! Speaking of melting, this next one is similar, yet opposite. Let me take you back to a simpler time. A time before conventional thought. Late 1600′s it was pretty popular for villages and settlements to take out all of their problems on a local witch. You might of heard of the Salem Witch Trials. Some forget that shit appened’ else where as well. Take you to England in 1695, Emily Calhoun was found guilty of witchcraft in the town of Cheshire. Don’t look for this in history books because it’s been wiped. Brutal killing it was. See it was one of the only times that a witch trial got a real witch. And witches don’t tend to go down pretty. Kind of the reason I chose this one. You see they burned her at the stake. Sounds simple enough, cept for the fact she turned that small burning into an inferno that took down a good amount of area and killed 20 people. All of them burnt to a crisp black. Good ol’ Emily was the last to die, clutching her hands to the sky in anger. Supposedly her spirit still lingers there…and an odd amount of sporadic fires have appened’ there throughout the years.
Getting harder to top these ay’? Well I got a good one for number two. Really should have been number 1, but to be honest number one is a bit more brutal. This one in particular happened to a very famous person by the name of William Wallace. I ain’t gettin’ inta no history lesson here, but I will tell ya’ how that man died. He was hanged, drawn, and quartered. But saying that really gives you no depth to what the English did to him. We was dragged through the streets naked. Hanged, but then released just before he died. Then while alive he was disemboweled and had his twig and two berries lopped off. Then still while he was alive burnt his entrails before him. THEN, they cut off his limbs and his head. His limbs were sent two the four corners to be put on display and his head dipped in tar and placed on the London Bridge…Sort of a loud message eh?
This last one is only possible because of the mericle of heavy machinery.You ever seen the movie Fargo? Well, if you haven’t this one will still entertain you. Apparently, Asner Martinez was out doing some lawn work one day, extensive lawn work. He had cut down lots of branches and trees. After all that he needed a way to get rid of it all…why not make some mulch. He rented a wood chipper with little experience on how to run something like that (of course by little I mean none!) Everything went fine for the first twenty or so minuets. Why he was chewing up that mess left and right. Found it kind of fun he did! Until, a big chunk got stuck. When it did, he didn’t think much of it and reached in to grab it…it was still on. So when it roared back to life it dragged him in and out he came. Chewed him up without stopping and blew Asner chunks all over the yard. Coffin was a right mess.
Well that’s all you lot, we got to start cleaning up before Boss get’s home. This moron to me left crashed The Mad Tea Party the other day. Then when we was looking for a quick fix in the lab…I spilt some bottles…and made a right mess as well.
Right tell everyone Baxter sheesh..
Oh it’s not like Malice ain’t gonna know…
Spirits and Tonics,
Bartleby and Baxter
‘Ello poppits! Bartleby here!
Well, according to the schedule, we’re supposed to give you some news! I wasn’t really sure what to tell you all. You see, we only really hang around the grounds and the crypt. If Master Malice don’t take us, we don’t really go. So….we kind of did a no no and took out the Mad Tea Party…The Psychotik Crews ship.
You really think we should ave’ posted that Bartleby? I mean if the boss finds out…And what did taking the ship ave’ ta do with anything anyway?
Baxter, boss probably already knows….I dread seeing his grin pop up anytime…maybe he’ll be too busy. Besides do you really need a reason to take a huge air ship out? Let’s just do a top notch job and maybe he won’t lash us that bad eh?
Sure thing…but what do humans like to hear about?
I think the boss tends to talk about upcoming movies right? Well, what do you see in the papers we picked up?
Well…let’s see…crap…crap…crap….Oh hey Jurassic Park 3D comes out this Friday. In IMAX 3d to boot. Bartleby we need to see if we can catch it mate. I love that movie. Wicked awesome to see it in 3D…you think the boss will take us?
I think he’s more likely to take us to the actual Jurassic period and leave us there for a week…
Yeah, that sounds more like him to be honest. Oh they also got that new version of the Evil Dead coming out this Friday too. I’m usually not one for remakes, but this one looks a little more on the horror side then the first. Don’t get me wrong, and please don’t stone me for it! I like the first one. Nothing ever beats the original. But I’m curious to see this get a bit more on the horrific side of life. I mean if you ever got a chance to see some of the dimensions that the necronomicon exists on…well you would realize there ain’t nothin’ funny about it!
Those Deadites did taste good though didn’t they?
Right they did mate! Right they did! What else should we talk about?
Hmmm…Can’t talk about Walking Dead…it’s finaled for now. OH…Game of Thrones Third season started Sunday. I don’t watch it but I’ve heard good things. What else in TV….
Theirs that Hannibal show…
Right! Yeah, ave’ you all heard about this? I guess they figure Dexter needs compition and this pony ain’t fully bled dry! Supposed to be real good. Well shall see…that starts this Thursday the 4th on NBC. It’s got that guy that played Morpheus on The Matrix…
Oh, Laurence Fishburne…
Yeah, him! So it can’t be all that bad. For all you sports nuts out there, the final 4 of march madness will be held this Saturday the 6th. Matches will be between Louisville and Wichita St., and Michigan and Syracuse. The thing I’m getting pumped over is Wrestlemania 29 this Sunday. Highlight matches include Ryback vs. Mark Henry, The Sheild vs. Orton, Shaemus, and Big Show, Lesner vs. HHH, The Undertaker vs. CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger, and the main event John Cena vs. The Rock. Can’t wait to see how it all turns out…
You think that’s good enough for the news?
Sure why not? Now that business is over, what do you say we have a little fun?
That’s all for today folks….
Bone-jangling and Rotten Fun,
Bartleby and Baxter
Ello’ there poppits! Yer hosts here, Bartleby and Baxter. According to our notes…we’re supposed to do a movie review. Well, Me and Baxter here don’t watch many movies, but I feel the ones we do are pretty good. Keeping that in mind, I believe we will review for you Silent Hill: Revelations. We will….
But wait a minuet Bartleby, how are we both going to talk bout it? How will they know which is me and which is you?
You stupid git! Malice told us to use the different fonts! He already put it in for us. I’m dark grey and you are light grey!
Oh! I see it now…go on then.
Right, anyway we will look at a few things about the movie. I guess how it looks, story, and…well we will just tell you bout it. Not as good about this as the boss. Let’s just get this started eh?
Psychotik Review: Silent Hill: Revelation
Suppose we should start with the story huh? Well the movie starts about 10 years after the first movie took place. The little girl is all grown and she and her Dad have been on the run from the darkness. Did a fine job of it too until the day of her 18th birthday. Her nightmares become true when her Dad get’s taken, and she has to go looking for him. I don’t want to spoil it anymore…
Bartleby, I think you can tell them a little more than that, mate. They can find out more than that on the movie trailer.
Well smart ass! If you think it needs more, you tell em! Tha way when you spoil the movie, it’s all on you!
OK then. Anyway, after her Dad is taken she figures she has to go to Silent Hill. Well the really cool thing is it comes to her! Yeah, she get’s pretty close to the town and while she is in a hotel room…BOOM! the walls melt away and she’s there! OH and I should also tell you that the people from the town are the ones trying to get her back. Apparently she is some sort of like key to stopping Alyssa….Gives me chills saying her name.
Baxter, master never told them about any of tha, they are going to think your scared of a little thing like a movie.
He never told them?
No he never did and now we got to! Here is the smalls of it…Master Malice is a Cheshire Cat. I’m sure you all know that. What that means is he can pop in and out of realities and time lines. We have actually been to Silent Hill…and let’s say where as the movie and the games are good…seeing it in person is a whole new type of fear. We don’t scare easy and it gave us the willies.
Yeah, the movie does do a good job of relaying those feelings of dread…We will get to that in a bit. Where was I? Oh yeah, so Sharron has to face the worst that Silent Hill has to offer. Now that’s how you describe a movie!
Good! then that means I get to talk about the technicals…
But that’s not fair…
Pipe down! The movie is great visually. I really wish we could have seen it in 3D. Would have been fantastic! Their are all kinds of different monsters old and new. Believe it or not Malcolm McDowell also plays a character. Caught me off guard completely. Wasn’t expecting it. Also didn’t expect Carrie-Anne Moss either, but be damned if she didn’t blow me away too. Liked very much that the movie could have used those names as a crutch and didn’t. Work off yer own steam is what I say! The atmosphere is everything you would expect from something with the Silent Hill name attached. Anyway, very accurate to the real deal, I’m sure you’ll love it like we did.
Can I talk about something now or are you going to keep running your crumpet trap?
Well what the ‘ell do you want to talk about?
You don’t know do you?
I’ll give them the rating! 5 out of 5 Top Hats! Not anything too terribly bad to say about it. Give it a look see, trust us you’ll like it!
That’s all we really got…have to get back to the list of things master Malice left us to do on the grounds. The Malicious Manor needs tending.
Yeah, have a good night folks!
Look under Yer Bed,
Bartleby and Baxter
Hello Freaky Darlings! Seras and myself are going to be on vacation for the next week. Unfortunately, this is the same week I was going to implement the new writing schedule. So, I have to leave the site in the, hopefully capable hands, of my henchmen, Bartleby and Baxter. This may be a train wreck…I don’t know…what I do know is…it should be entertaining! But before I leave it to them…maybe you should meet them first. I lump them onto one page because…well…they don’t deserve two! Enjoy!
Name: Bartleby Smythe & Baxter Collins
Hair Color and Style: Bartleby is half bald and has grey stringy hair with chops. Baxter has chin length hair, darker grey, with chops.
Height: Bartleby is 5’8 and Baxter is 6’8
Weight: Bartleby is Short and pudgy and Baxter is Tall and slender
Clothing: Both wear shades of grey. Bartleby has a Grey coat and wears a worn out grey top hat and pinstripe pants. Baxter wears suspenders with pinstripe pants, black and white stripe arm warmers, and a grey cabbie hat.
Other Identifiable Traits: Dead looking skin and sharp yellow teeth
Crew Position: Henchmen
Favorite Music: Some classical but Baxter does enjoy the British invasion bands. Lot’s of Black Sabbath….
Favorite Movies: Zombie films…who would have guessed…all time favorite though is Beetlejuice
Favorite Books: They tell me they can’t read…but I have seen Harry Potter books on Baxter’s end of the crypt…so who knows…
Back Story: Bartleby and Baxter were Grave Robbers from the 1800′s. Back then, Grave Robbing was pretty lucrative business for two uneducated vagabonds. They were pretty good at it, until the law caught on to them. Whilst hiding in a crypt, they were left with nothing to eat. They made it two days before it got too much to bare. So they got to looking at some of the corpses and noticed their were little bits of meat on the bones. some were even fresher than others. They decided to taste it. to their own surprise, it wasn’t that bad (probably from dealing with corpses as much as they had…they didn’t notice) Little did they know, they had really lost track of time. They found tunnels that lead throughout the whole cemetery. They remained down there for weeks feeding on the dead before they noticed they had changed slightly. They didn’t notice that until after they had attacked a fellow Grave Robber. To be more accurate, they didn’t notice until they had eaten him. Their teeth had grown serrated and sharp. Their finger nails hard and sharp. Their eyes had lost all color and their skin looked a dead grey. They had become REAL Graveyard Ghouls.
Meeting Malice: Sometimes you would be surprised what you find in a graveyard. I sure was when I ran across Bartleby and Baxter. You see…you never really luck out and come across a Ghoul before it’s reduced to a blithering, shambling, wild, smelly, corpse looking thing. I must have happened across them at the right time, because they still retained some intelligence (this is up for debate sometimes). If I didn’t take them in, they would most likely be put to death when discovered. No one likes to keep things around that eat their loved ones remains. I made them a deal…work for me as my henchmen (still to this day I’m not sure why I needed henchmen…but I’ll be damned if they don’t come in handy sometime!) and in return I would keep them safe and teach them how to snuff out the corpses with necrotoxin ((the thing that makes you a ghoul)) so they wouldn’t progress any further. We’ve been together ever since! They have helped me on many adventures and squashed many zombie plagues in their tracks (It’s like a buffet for them!)
Hello Freaky Darlings! I’ve some interesting news to share with you. A new Horror Anthology is on the horizon. I’m always one to lend a hand (Or hands!) to the horror community, so check it out. If ADA Management is involved, I’m sure it will be good (similar tastes, great minds think alike and all of that jazz…) Below is the Press Release:
Once Upon a Horror Press Release
ONCE UPON A HORROR is a collection of four titillating and terrifying tales in the tradition of “CREEPSHOW” and “TALES FROM THE CRYPT”.
Our new series created by Rolfe Kanefsky, Once Upon A Horror, will consist of four short horror stories, Once Upon A Horror, Truth Be Told, With All my Heart, and Beast and the Beauty. These four short films will be cut together into a 90 minute pilot, which will be used to launch a weekly anthology TV series of terror tales, titled Once Upon A Horror, as well as a feature film for DVD distribution. Our ultimate goal, once the series is up and running, is to use this as a launching pad to discover new upcoming filmmakers. Filmmakers from all over the world with a passion for all things horror will be encouraged to submit their own horror shorts or short horror scripts to ONCE UPON A HORROR, where they will be selected as future upcoming episodes to air on Once Upon A Horror. This will not only be a platform for new horror films, but to showcase the talent of independent filmmakers from all over the world who would not normally have an opportunity to show their abilities.
MEET THE TEAM
Created by Rolfe Kanefsky and hosted by the Princess of Horror, Tiffany Shepis, this series already has an amazing cast and crew on board. Some of our star cast includes, James Duval (Donnie Darko, Independence Day), Dominique Swain (Face/Off, Lolita, Alpha Dog) and Tiffany Shepis (Night of The Demons, The Hazing, Nightmare Man, The Violent Kind). Our team is also blessed to be working with the talented Michael Del Rossa, who has done FX for such films as Watchmen, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, 300 and I am Legend.
The award-winning writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky started his professional career with the now cult horror-comedy “THERE’S NOTHING OUT THERE” which had a theatrical release before finding a loyal following on cable and home video. Kanefsky has directed over twenty feature films including the horror flicks “THE HAZING”, the Lions Gate/After Dark’s “NIGHTMARE MAN”, “CORPSES, and the Warner Brothers’ Home Video release of “JACQUELINE HYDE”.
Kanefsky (writer/director of Tales 1,3,4) is very excited to be launching his first Kickstarter campaign with long time producing partner Esther Goodstein “NIGHTMARE MAN”, “1 IN THE GUN”, and the fantastic team from Market Street Productions, Stacy Ekstein and Chris Ekstein.
Chris Ekstein (director of Tale 2) is in production on feature western “RISE OF THE LONESTAR RANGER” (Danny Trejo, Rose McGowan, Mark Boone Jr.). As an award-winning cinematographer, he has directed for national campaigns and clients. He is looking forward to directing the “Truth be Told” episode with Dominique Swain.
You should all check it out! And I’m sure they may appreciate a little help in the finance department if you got some loose change or a few bucks. Here is the link to the movies Kick Starter Page:
I’m sure I’ll here more about it as time moves on and I’ll keep you posted. Currently coming up with a few things for the site and the Facebooks. as always you can stay up to date by liking the pages for Encyclopedia Psychotika or The Psychotik Girls. Keep spreading the Madness!!
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
I would have loved to do a news article this week. As a matter of fact had one planned. But this week has resulted in tragedy. Most may not know I’m a fan of wrestling. Not sure if it’s the fighting or the drama…but it has always entered my life at one time or another. I especially loved wrestling from the early 90′s on up. About 2005 I fell out of it and then recently had my interest fully re sparked. Possibly one of my favorite characters to step in the squared circle, wasn’t even a wrestler. While most kids remember the Paul Bearer as a horror host….I remember a different one. I remember The Undertaker’s demented manager. He was my Paul Bearer, and his real name was William Moody.
My earliest memories of Paul Bearer was him following Undertaker to the ring with his golden urn in hand. I remember the way he would squeal out his catch phrase “Ohhhhh Yes!!” You couldn’t not pay attention to him. The perfect compliment to my favorite wrestler. He was really one of those damsel in distress type managers…I use that term “Damsel” loosely by the way. He never seemed to be able to stay out of trouble. And he was so short and round, the only chance he had was to blind side you with that urn. Still though, you loved to see how they were going to keep him away from the Dead Man next. I don’t think the sports entertainment industry will ever find another like him.
He was only 58 when he passed away on Tuesday of gallbladder complications. Was wondering if he would come back for what may be The Undertakers last Wrestlmania match (I say last because Taker is up there too!) Just was very shocked and saddened. I would have loved to have met him. Interesting fact, did you know he really was a mortician? Kind of adds to the creepy feel of an already macabre character. He will be missed. If you would like to know more about his grand history in wrestling, click HERE!
Well, that’s all for now…currently planning out some article schedules. Just really bummed even typing this. Paul Bearer…Rest…In….Peace.
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Sup Freaky Darlings!? You all better get used to hearing about Fatality Fest, because this show sounds like it’s going to be epic as all get out! I have a press announcement for film makers, a press announcement for bands, guest announcements…..and a surprise!!! First a message brought to us by Mrs. Andrea Albin about the Film Fest:

I’m super excited! They should have more announcements later this week. I can’t wait to see who’s next. With a power house like ADA Management behind it, the sky is the limit I suppose. Either way…all you bands and film makers out there reading this in internet land—GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!!! Send in those short films! Get ready for a war of guitars and metal (I’m looking at you Finding Every Altar Ruined!!!)
That’s all for now, I need some sleep! Be sure to stay tuned for more. Maybe we will have some by the next News Asylum report.
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Editor’s Note: I ALMOST FORGOT!! I PROMISED A SURPRISE!! WELL HERE IT IS!!!
I’ve been wanting to do a weekly news post for sometime now…just have never gotten around to it. Now that I am, I find myself scratching my head for things to post. I mean…what does one report? I’m not a regular news site, so I doubt I’ll do that. I could just go over things that pertain to the site…but eventually then we would hit a few stale weeks. Nope, I think I’m just going to post about the topics that have tickled my fancy in the last week. Let’s give this a shot shall we…
A WEEK IN THE NEWS…ASYLUM!
One of the biggest events I’ve seen people talking about is the meteor that exploded over Russia last week. Crazy little world we live in right? Yeah the same day we got a near miss asteroid, an unrelated meteor exploded over top Chelyabinsk, Russia injuring 1,100+ people. The thing weighed 10 tons, and caused a shit load of havoc! Thank Cthulhu it wasn’t a bigger one, or the asteroid for that matter. Apparently the worst news is we have no current way of tracking or preventing things like that from happening again. I’ll post a video below, because really you have to see it to believe it. Could you imagine if that would have happened over New York? The panic would have been uncontrollable! Not that I’m glad it was over Russia! Really wish it wouldn’t have happened at all. On the bright side though, apparently the meteor rock is very valuable and has created a sort of “gold rush” effect in the area. What some people won’t do eh? I guess you could also take it as a positive that the asteroid that was nearly cut out of the news by the meteor, didn’t hit us or explode either. Had that hit, it could have leveled a city the size of London with ease. I would also like to report I’ve seen nothing that suggests we have damaged satellites either, as it was supposed to have passed through our satellite ring.
Next big historical event should have happened back in 1865. This week marks the last state to ratify the 13th Amendment…you know the one that abolishes slavery! Apparently a 148 years of lazy clerks allowed this to be an oversight. Recently a Mississippi Doctor, Dr. Ranjan Batra, was inspired to look into it. His inspiration came from the movie Lincoln. He was shocked to learn that his fine state had not in fact abolished slavery. Nope in all technicality, they it was still very much OK. Shame on you Mississippi! Well, in their defense, they did ratify it in 1995. But it wasn’t made official because they didn’t tell the Federal Government or file the proper papers. Still though 1995? That’s still a big oversight…ouy vey!
Next is a little less historical…a lot more horrifying! Biologists have created “zombie cells.” Not just “zombie cells,” but cells that out perform their living counter part. The cells can survive greater temperatures and higher pressure than living. In most cases, they even perform better at certain cellular functions. The cells are created by painting the live mammalian cells with silicic acid. That embalms the cells down to a nanometric level. From here the cells are cooked to 400C. This burns off the protein,but leaves the a three-dimensional model…the “zombie cell.” The remaining biological matter has a few uses as well. One of these uses involves fuel cells. At any rate, you have to wonder why call it zombie cells? The way the article explains it, you would think it to be harmless. Like not something that could spark a zombocolypse. However, this is how these things start…a little bit of Franken-science goes a long way. Read more HERE!
Well we have historical covered, science…maybe a little tech? Why not in the form of the official press release for the Sony PS4!!! So far some of the coolest features are two cameras built into the unit (huhu I said Unit), touch pad on the 6 axis controller, ability to use the PS Vita similar to a Wii U controller, and of course the boss ass hardware upgrade (custom AMD processor with eight x86-64 AMD Jaguar CPU cores, next-gen AMD Radeon based graphics engine, 8GB of GDDR..it’s a beast!), and an instant on feature. I’m really liking the instant on feature. Supposedly you are going to be able to turn the PS4 off and then turn it back on and almost instantly resume your game. This is supposed to be attributed to the new hardware. The price tag is also supposed to be loads cheaper than when the PS3 came out. Does that mean it’s going to be below $400? No. But it may be that or around that which isn’t that bad. The only draw back is there will be no backwards compatibility with the PS3. They have rumored that they may create some sort of online library to remedy that. Only time will tell. The only other negative I see on the horizon comes in the form of the console industries mounted attack on the used game industry. They didn’t address whether the PS4 would be able to use pre-owned games or not…but they didn’t deny it either. For more detailed info read HERE!
Not really sure where this fits in, but this week a big announcement was made by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment). The announcement involved the location of Wrestlemania XXX. It seems that the big easy will be hosting one of the biggest sporting entertainment events of the year. Not just that, but apparently it is going to be grander than ever with events planned the whole week leading up to the April 2014 event. I’m interested! I’ve always been interested in going to New Orleans. I’ve always wanted to go to a Wrestlemania…this just seems perfect! It’s also fair to mention that The Rock will be on the match card as well. This I guess gives some proof that his recent little return isn’t going to be that brief. I see an exciting year with the Great One back in a top spot. I know it’s silly that this may be the thing to get my ass to New Orleans, but hey….would it be normal if I had a normal reason? Didn’t think so…watch the video below for the whole announcement.
Last but not least, what news report would be complete without a little scandal…and speaking of WWE I have just the one! Wrestler Jack Swagger was arrested late Tuesday the 19th for speeding, possession (not demonic), and DUI. Apparently he had just come from a taping of Smack Down. Jack Swagger had just recently won the Elimination Chamber match at the pay-per-view of the same name. This grants him a shot at the World Heavyweight Title at Wrestlmania 29. Now his charges are just misdemeanors, but one wonders how WWE will react. One thing WWE has never had a history of dealing with well is drug or alcohol scandal. Time will tell…
That’s all for this week Darlings! Stay tuned for more to come…feeling a lot better! remember to help spread the madness! Like the Facebook pages…share the articles…make the world a crazier place!

Back Story: Chasity is a witch of fortune and fate. Dabbling in the dark arts of altering futures, she has earned herself quite the reputation. You used to be able to find her in traveling carnivals and roaming groups of gypsies. She’s been around for 3 hundred years, but you would never know it. The people who visit her are desperate and greedy, looking for a change of fate. She offers them change, but sometimes what you want isn’t what you need. The draw back is usually a much shorter lifespan. The remaining years that person would have had, she transfers to herself. This is the cost for an easy change of fate…
Meeting Malice: I really do enjoy a good traveling show. One of my favorite parts are the fortune tellers. If they are fake, and believe me most are, it’s interesting seeing what kind of conclusions they draw. If they are the real deal, the look of confusion that crosses their face as they gaze into eons of existence and memories…well it’s priceless! I keep my ear to the ground for the real deals. As you can imagine eventually this brought me to who was rumored to be the greatest fortune-teller of them all, Chasity Fortana. When I heard that she could change your fate too…well I just had to see for myself. Needless to say I got the look of awe as she gazed into her crystal at my long expansive life. Her mistake was trying to offer me a change of fate. You see, fooling a Cheshire Cat is fools mistake. You can’t fool a Cheshire Cat…I see too many ways. (Up, Down, Sideways, Frontways, Backways…even Slantways…hee hee) Needless to say, her little trick didn’t work and I offered her to come work for me. I mean, why not have a devious turner of fate on my side. Could come in handy am I right?
Well, a Happy Valentines Day to you all! Such a fun day today is, huh? Love is in the air! People get all wrapped up in Valentines Day…but does anyone really know of the bloody history? Does anyone stop to think of the origin of this holiday? Well I assure you, it’s not just a Hallmark Holiday, as most singles would have you believe…(Although they have cornered the market) No Valentines Day has a rich history thick with Blood that I’m sure you will all love to hear about. I think I’m going to start doing this with all Holidays…I love bursting bubbles!
The Origin of Valentines Day
Research has shown me there are two things that started this day. One is the Roman festival of Lupercalia and the other is the martyr of Saint Valentinus (Oh I do love a good Martyr Story!) In case you don’t know either story here is a little bit of a run down. The Festival of Lupercalia was to celebrate the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. To celebrate this joyous of days, they would sacrifice a goat and skin it. Then they would soak the skins in blood and run around slapping women in the face with the blood soaked strips! Apparently it made them more fertile. The Romans did a lot of silly shit didn’t they? Oh and they would also do a match making ceremony where women would put their names into a hat. Think of it like a sexy sorting hat…you know what never mind…Let’s nt bring Harry Potter into this. We don’t need a new meaning to Slytherin house.
The next part of the origin involves the death of the days name sake, Saint Valentinus. This guy even has two stories to his death! In third century, Roman Emporer Claudius II prohibited marriages to young men that could serve in the military. One story says good ol’ St. Valentine preformed the marriages anyway, was thus found out, and killed. Another story said he was imprisoned for helping Christians escape Roman concentration camps. Either way, while he was in jail it’s said he wrote the first Valentine note. Supposedly it was to a girl he fell in love with. The note was signed “from your Valentine.” The rest is history…
Further Blood Shed
Possibly my favorite story in the history of Valentines Day is the St. Valentines Day Massacre. On this day in 1929, Five members of Bugs Moran’s North side gang were lined up on a wall and executed. This would go down in history as the bloodiest of the gangland murders. It marked the beginning of the end for Al Capone, as this drew unwanted attention to him and his organization. He was arrested two years later for tax evasion. Had this not happened, who knows maybe the government would have never looked into him further. At any rate, you should look up more info when you can. Interesting bit of history if I say so myself.
Editors Note: I’ve been to an alternate time line where it wasn’t found out that Al Capone was behind it. I got news for you all, America is a very different place. Let’s just say that Republicans aren’t the worst thing out there. They may be silly, but they aren’t that bad when you compare it to an American run by the mob…Not a good alternate time line at all! I will say though it’s quite fun!
Well, I need to get back to my Seras. We are going to do things that are going to put the rest of the Psychotik Crew in therapy for years! Ever done it in a star dust cloud? Didn’t think so! It’s good to be a Cheshire Cat! Whether your with someone or not, do have some fun. To all of the singles out there, go find a one night stand (even if it’s manual or battery operated).
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Well, well, well….long time friend, reader, and fan Joe Edenfield brought a new coming attraction to our very own phalice shaped state. A new horror convention has decided to set up shop in South Florida by the name of Fatality Fest, and I would like to share some info on it to all of you. I apologize for the tardiness in reporting such a cool thing, but unfortunately the Psychotik’s have found themselves sick…and I just want to cuddle in a blanket!!! BUT ENOUGH! I’m pulling myself together and making this very cool announcement!
Fatality Fest will take place the weekend of June 7th-9th at The West Palm Beach Marriott. The event will feature panels, films, guests, vendors…all that you could ever want in a class act horror convention. So far the guest list is not large, but has been growing as time passes. Guests are as follows: Tony Todd(Candyman), Scott Spiegel (Writer/Director/Actor), Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2, Command), Tony Moran (Halloween 1978, Emerging Past), Jonathan Tiersten (Sleepaway Camp, The Perfect House), John Dugan (Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1978), Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D), Brooke Lewis (iMurders, Kinky Killers, Ms. Vampy, Lazarus), Timothy Patrik Quill (Army of Darkness, Spiderman 1,2, and 3) AND JUST ADDED AS WE SPEAK!!!! Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever, Not Another Teen Movie) and more being added all the time. Super tight starter list if you ask me. I’m impressed!
it’s so great to see new talent moving into this great state. Florida loves it’s horror just as much as the rest. Why be restricted to only one Horror Con a year? As more events come available, I’ll let you know. I’m very excited to be in contact with the promoter of the show as well. In fact, She would like you all to get to know her. I promise, I’ll find time to put her in the hot seat soon enough as Encyclopedia Psychotika is going to add Interviews back soon enough. Till then, here’s a little bit. Andrea Albin is a woman of much talent. Owner and President of ADA Management Group, South Florida’s Premier entertainment management firm, she is also a talented writer. You may know her as Ms. Disgusting on Bloody-Digusting.com. You also may have seen her work in either STIFF or Fangoria. She was also Scream Queen of the Month October 2011 on ScreamQueen.com Which ever way you do or now do know her…She WILL be adding kick ass Convention Promoter to that list!
That’s all I got for now. Tickets are on sale and hotel rooms able to be booked now! Click THIS to do all of that stay up to date! I’m very excited to watch this flourish and who knows, maybe there will be a place for good ol’ Malice again in the con scene after all. Only time will tell, and it’s a good thing that’s what we have plenty of.
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
Hi Freaky Darlings! I’m gonna try to make a general update on construction for Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Orlando one a month. I figure this will be easier to keep up with. Not to say that if something really cool comes up I won’t post it earlier, but I would love to just have a monthly article for this. This year is going to be big. Lots of construction. I thought there was a lot last year….no buddy! This year takes the cake!
The Simpsons Update
Last September, I started seeing rumor mill about The International Food and Wine Festival restaurant closing to make way for a new Simpsons themed eatery. Well rumor turned to truth and then grew to rumor…AND EXPLODED!!! Now we sit at beginning of February and all sorts of construction is going on. Rumor mill says you have this to look forward to: The Krusty Burger, Moe’s Tavern, Kentucky Fried Panda, New Simpsons Flat Ride near MIB, and Other Facades. I’m really excited for this experience. I’ve always been sort of luke warm toward The Simpsons. Mainly because of Back the the Future. But I think it’s high time to let go of old grudges. Simpsons are here to stay, and the sooner I get savvy with it…the better. It’s really not that bad of a ride, I just miss BTTF… Anyways…I’m not too sure about Kentucky Fried Panda, but i can’t wait to sit down to a Krusty Burger. I’m curious as to what the new Flat Ride is going to be…Supposedly it’s supposed to be like the Dumbo ride…we shall see…
Transformers The Ride 3D
A long, long time ago…in an article far away…I spoke of the demise of Building 44. Shortly after that came the news that we were actually going to have a Transformer ride for the east coast. Now months after that construction is in full swing and we are looking at a possible summer opening. I’m so stoked for this ride on Multiple levels. First off, it’s the Transformers. It may be Michael By’s Transformers…but it’s STILL the Transformers. Second it’s a dark ride modeled after The Amazing adventures of Spiderman, IOA’s best ride. If you don’t believe me, the proof is in the pudding. I’ll post a ride video below just so you can see. It’s also worth mentioning their exists rumors of the Monster Cafe being axed for a Transformers Themed eatery. I really hope this isn’t the case. I love the Monster Cafe with all of my heart. To me, it’s a rich part of not only film history…and not only Universal’s history…but the park as well. It reminds me of the hey day for whatever reason…probably because it’s themed after old movies? I don’t know. That’s all I on this front for now.
Harry Potter Phase 2
We’ll there isn’t much official as they have not made any official releases. Even since the last time we chatted this, we are still technically running off of rumors. Construction has begun though, and we can discuss the speculations. Of course there is a big ass building to house the huge ride through Gringott’s Bank. The only other named project is the Hogwart’s Express that will connect the two Harry Potter Areas. Still no exact details on how it will work, but rumor mill is pointing to something like the Kong 3D attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. As far as other rumored attractions…well they are the same as last time. It’s Diagon Ally and Kingscross Station. Shops so far are as follows: Ollivanders, The Leaky Caldron, and Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes. Hopefully we will hear more closer it is to open.
One last random rumor that hasn’t panned out yet before I go. This one I’m not sure how to feel about it. Mostly I hate it. Supposedly, Toon Lagoon is up on the chopping block. Not sure why. They recently. a couple of years ago, had to do extensive work on Ripsaw Falls. Then again, the maintenance is pretty high…anyway…It is rumored that a Middle Earth attraction is on the horizon. Really there is nothing more than hearsay and whispers at this point. Just know it’s out there. Only other one to report is the possible rehashing of Posiden’s Fury to a sort of Grinch Attraction. Again, not much to go off of.

Back Story: Few have ever had the opportunity to meet a Harpy. Vicious creatures as they are, they don’t let many live to tell the tale. So it’s not surprising that most wouldn’t know that there are different species within that breed. Nox is of the Carrion variety, a Crow Harpy in standard. Nox is a rebel amongst her family. Most Harpy’s are supposed to live a life of seclusion, only acquainting with family or other Harpy. Nox wanted more than that…venturing far from the nest in search of knowledge, love, and happiness. She’s able to hide her appearance like all Harpy’s. But also like other Harpy, she has a taste for man flesh…That’s a little hard to hide.
Meeting Malice: I’ve always enjoyed the creatures of your Greek Myth Period. Some of the breeds created during that time still, at least to me are very beautiful. I have a few favorites, but one of them is definitely the Harpy. Most people don’t even stop to see the other breeds. Of course that could be because they are too busy being pecked to Death or torn apart. But I bet you even those becoming food won’t stop to appreciate the different species. I cam across Nox while Seras and myself were having a holiday in Alexandria, Egypt. She was busy following a rumor about the secret hiding place of the legendary scrolls from the Library of Alexandria. Of course I knew she wouldn’t find them. (I hid them myself centuries ago!) I offered her to join me, and I would allow her access to secrets she could have never dreamed of. She couldn’t refuse…
