A slasher-themed horror pic that takes place on Thanksgiving.
Yep! It’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving is on Thursday, which means dutiful consumers are already preparing for the Holiday Shopping Season. If you think you’re exempt from that, think again. Either you know a fellow horror fan (or family member) in need, or you want something for yourself! You can take this as advice for what to buy, or what to ask for.
This first installment is all about movies and TV. From big box sets to essential individual titles, there’s something for every horror-giver and recipient alike. Some of this stuff is on the expensive side and some of it is dirt cheap, and it’s all just a click away from being at your doorstep (and in someone’s stocking).

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we all know what that means! Time to give thanks? No! It’s time to beware of cannibals! In the world of horror the most appropriate thing to do around Thanksgiving is to prepare a guest list of whom to not to invite–for obvious reasons. And I just don’t just mean your Aunt with the high socks who talks too loud and smells like canned milk, or even your bald spotting Uncle who is missing a tooth and often whistles when he talks. No, no, this list is more in depth and could possibly save your life as well as others.
Hopefully with this list, you’ll be able to look at the traits of these individuals and know who to avoid, specifically around this feast eating time! READ MORE
We all know that sex and violence have been bedfellows in entertainment since the dawn of time. They’ve certainly walked hand in hand since the dawn of cinema, so much so that this list could never hope to be completed in just one outing. In fact, you could probably have an entry on this list for every legit slasher ever made (I even had to make a rule about including only one Friday The 13th film).
While I’m not 100% sure of the science behind what causes the desire to see these two elements combined, I’m guessing it has something to do with both of them being such primal forces. At any rate, it’s here to stay – so why not look at some of the best scenes this unholy combination of elements has to offer?

Bloody Disgusting reader Erik Yates tipped us off to an interview over at Behind the Thrills with writer-director-producer-actor Eli Roth, who is making press rounds to promote his Vegas attraction, “The Goretorium,” opening this September.
Hiding at the end of the chat, Roth reveals that there may finally be some turkey-f*cking in the future. He tells the site that Thanksgiving, the feature version of his faux trailer from the 2007 Grindhouse, is definitely happening.
“It’s gonna happen. I’m working with the Clowns writers on it,” he tells the site referring to Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford (Robot & Frank), the duo who came into Roth’s world after making their own faux trailer back in November 2010. “[We] have a called scheduled for tomorrow afternoon,” he adds stating that they will co-write the script with Roth and his writing partner Jeff Rendell. “We finally cracked the story and figured out how to make it really, really scary, and a reason to do it. Before John starts shooting Clown he has a window.” He expects to have a draft soon, but it’s unclear who will direct, if not Roth.
The trailer, shared below, is a slasher-themed horror pic that takes place on Thanksgiving. READ MORE
We all know those people who seem to have seen every movie and T.V. show, played every video game, and read every book and comic out there (where do they find the time?), and trying to shop for them can make for a frustrating experience. That being said, there are always those off-the-wall items that even the most well-versed horror fanatics haven’t yet gotten their hands on, and that’s where the “Toys & Merchandise” section of B-D’s Black Friday Chopping List comes in. Along with the latest in toys and decorative figurines, you’ll also find such oddities as specialized license plates, zombie-themed Zippo lighters, and even real embalmed mice made into Christmas tree ornaments. Seriously.
From kick-ass boxed sets to classics put out for the first time on DVD or Blu-ray, 2010 has been a pretty damn good year for horror releases on home video, and in the following “Film & TV” section of B-D’s Black Friday Chopping List we’ve selected a few of the best ones to come out in time for the holiday season. The wide variety of titles included here – from hit T.V. shows about hunky vampires, to a bizarre Japanese film about…well, what exactly?, to the Blu-ray boxed set to top all Blu-ray boxed sets – should cover practically any horror-loving fiend on your list. As for your grandmother, it might be best just to buy her a sensible blouse at JC Penney and call it a day.
It’s the last Thursday of the month which means only one thing — it’s Thanksgiving! There’s a lot to give thanks for, but mostly we’d like to thank all of you dear Bloody Disgusting readers who have kept us going for ten years. Wait, what? Yup, this January Bloody Disgusting turns a decrepit 10. Want to buy us a holiday gift? I suggest a wheelchair, walker or oxygen machine. Ok, Ok, I’m being extreme, but in all seriousness I can’t believe it has been ten years already. I have so many great memories, many of which are documented here in last year’s decade retrospective. With that said, I spent last year focusing on the past — this coming year I want to look to the future. Technology is changing rapidly, we’re making tons of friends in the horrorverse, and hopefully we can take it up a notch come 2011. I won’t be satisfied until you’re satisfied. Basically, we’re gonna run this sucker until I’m six feet under. Tell us what you’re thankful for inside, where you can also enjoy a new yearly tradition: Eli Roth’s faux trailer for “Thanksgiving”.
There’s nothing that says “the holidays” quite like remaining sedentary for hours on end, and in that spirit Bloody-Disgusting has put together a list of the best, recent horror-themed video games to satisfy every hardcore gamer on your holiday shopping list. On the console front we have a slew of sequels and reboots to whet the appetite (sounds kinda like the movie industry, no?), while for mobile devices we’ve cherry-picked the best-reviewed titles to give you a better idea of how to spend that hard-earned…um, dollar ninety-nine on the people you love. Better yet, just by `em for yourself.
There’s something for every horror fan on your gift list in the “books & comics” section of B-D’s 2010 Black Friday Chopping list – from lovers of great poster art to rabid aficionados of indie comic books; from those who tend to engage in thought-provoking academic-minded discussions on the nature of the genre to those who just enjoy taking in as much grotesque, depraved imagery as they can get their hands on, this should prove a great guide for anyone scratching their heads over what to buy for one of those odd people who enjoy, um…whatchamacalit? Oh, yeah. Reading.
