Cinema Crazed’s 2018 Halloween Horror Month Has Begun!

Once upon a time, “Halloween Horror Month” was an idea. An idea bred from a goal to look for an excuse celebrate our love for horror for a whole month. In the past we’d post a glut of horror reviews for Halloween and only Halloween, but that didn’t quite feed our appetite. Now we aspire to celebrate not just Halloween, but October, and the horror genre as a whole. For “Halloween Horror Month” we celebrate thirty two days of horror, the occult, and the paranormal. Yes, we count Dio De Los Muertos. For thirty two days we’ll bring you reviews, articles, lists, and a lot more good stuff for what promises to be a very entertaining Halloween season.

We hope you join us for all of October, and to get in the mood, feel free to view some choice Halloween/Horror themed videos below!

Cinema Crazed’s Phil Hall Meets Bigfoot in New Book “The Weirdest Movie Ever Made”

BearManor Media is proud to announce the release of “The Weirdest Movie Ever Made: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film,” a new book by Cinema Crazed editor and columnist Phil Hall. The book will be available in all book retail channels beginning October 1st for the suggested retail price of $24.95 for the hardcover edition and $14.95 for the softcover edition.

On October 20th 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin emerged from a forest in Northern California with 59 seconds of grainy, shaky, silent 16mm film that offered documentary evidence of the existence of the Sasquatch, a creature of Native American folklore. Although neither Patterson nor Gimlin had any previous experience in filmmaking or zoology, they presented their remarkable footage as the first motion picture evidence to confirm the existence of the elusive Sasquatch.

However, not everyone was convinced by the imagery on the Patterson-Gimlin Film. Additional doubt was generated by the strange story behind the film’s creation. Over the years, odd rumors emerged about the film, including the story of an Academy Award-winning make-up artist’s alleged role in assembling the creature seen on camera.

Film journalist Phil Hall traces the convoluted history of how Patterson and Gimlin supposedly wound up in the right place at the right time with their camera, and how they brought their weird little film into the scientific community and American popular culture. While the debate over the authenticity of the Patterson-Gimlin Film continues to percolate, few would question the effectiveness of how this piece of celluloid brought forth an unlikely sensation lovingly dubbed Bigfoot.

“The Weirdest Move Ever Made: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film” can be pre-ordered from BearManor Media.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month

Here on Cinema Crazed, we consider ourselves an entertainment blog that celebrates and dissects film and pop culture, but we’re also advocates for mental health. Mental Health is often dismissed as a trivial health problem and is often stigmatized or looked down on in society. There’s no shame in getting help and seeking professional counseling from someone in times of great stress and or pain. With the rates of suicide rising over the years, it’s more essential than ever to seek psychological help.

No matter what happens in your life, you deserve good health. You deserve to have peace of mind. You matter. You’re wanted. People care about you. Most of all, you’re not alone. Not in the world, and not in suffering. If you’re contemplating suicide please consider the Suicide Prevention Hotline, right now. You deserve to live a full life.
