  Viewing “The Uh-Oh! Show” at the Florida SuperCon convention was a unique event for me. I got to hear from the cast and director, Herschell Gordon Lewis, before they showed the movie. They shared some of their experiences while on set. Herschell also talked about some of the ideas behind the movie, and what to expect while watching it. What really made it unique was not only that the audience was watching it for the first time, but it was also the cast’s first time. They were really excited to see the final product.   Herschell also discussed “The Uh-Oh! Show” the day before the screening of the movie. He mentioned that this was not your typical horror movie. They made it with the intention to “entertain” the audience. I wasn’t sure what to make of that until he showed us the trailer for the movie.   Before getting into the overall movie, let me give you a little idea of what the Uh-Oh! Show was all about.

Comic book and anime fans enjoyed events such as, “The History of Anime,” “Anime You Should Watch,” “DC Comic Book Legends,” and a “Fantastic Four (1994) Film Screening.” There were celebrities from a variety of TV shows, movies, and even wrestling to take pictures with, and get autographs from. And for horror fans like you, and me, there was plenty to do, as I take you through my 3 day journey of the Florida SuperCon convention.   When I walked in on the first day, I couldn’t help but notice the instant party atmosphere. Arriving later in the day, I could tell fun had already overtaken the convention. I didn’t waste too much time making my way to my first event, which was “Filmmaker Workshop with Herschell Gordon Lewis.” For those of you who don’t know


   After reviewing New Moon, I promised to only do a review of Eclipse if I thought it was better than New Moon. So to my surprise, here I am writing this review. Yes, it was better than New Moon, but that is not to say that I liked the movie. The Twilight series is like the flu, the more you have it, the more immune you get to it. Maybe I have gotten so use to it, it just didn't bother me as much. However, there was plenty to complain about, so let me get the complaining started.    After the movie opened by showing us how Riley became a vampire, it quickly went to Edward and Bella in a meadow. Now where have I seen that before? Hmm, oh yea, New Moon started off with Bella in the same meadow! The difference was that this time it was not a dream. Are you kidding me, they couldn't start off somewhere different this time. To make matters worse, they ended the movie in the same damn meadow. Come on now; was that town so boring that the only place to hang out was a meadow? It w
