I was witness to an invasion last night.

Okay, not so much of an invasion as one giant spider from Mars.

Okay, it wasn’t from Mars.

It was from the ceiling.

Okay, it wasn’t giant either, but when it is only inches from your face hanging there with all eight of its evil little legs squirming at u in the light on the TV it looks friggin’ HUGE!

I detest spiders.

Okay, maybe that is a little strong.

I hate them.

Still too strong. I extremely dislike them and do not want them near me ever, especially two inches from my face when I am trying to go to bed.

My fear, disgust, distrust of them keeps me from even being able to squish them dead so that I can go on with my pathetic little existence as  a spider loathing human being. I was ousted from my own bedroom in the middle of the night from a creature the size of my thumb nail. How does that work?

I like Spider-man. I like spider themed jewelry and art. I even like watching them on the Discovery channel. I just don’t like them on my head.

Spider: 1

Me: 0

(If you are keeping score.)

Well I have pretty much already beat this to death, but I feel it needs repeating. FEARnet is the only horror channel on Comcast and quite frankly it is the worst one out there. Come on Comcast give us something better please.

Oh, you can ask for channels but they never add them so why bother?

Additional reasons that FEARnet and Comcast suck can be found here:

Zombie PetsI saw these and thought I have to have those. These are just TOO funny. Little Zombie pets for your pockets. Set includes a zombie cat, zombie dog, zombie rabbit, zombie bird and zombie fish. I think they should do even more zombie animals. I would like to see a zombie farm set with a zombie horse, cow, sheep, goat, chicken etc.

So go ahead and run out and buy the Zombie Pet Shoppe figures before I do.

Tomatoes AttackThis was one of those weird films that for some odd reason I really liked. But I never new there were so many sequels to it.

Apparently there is going to be a remake of the movie in 2009 and there was a comic book adaptation of the film released last year.

Here’s what I found over at MoviesUnlimited.com (they have all kinds of out of print films on DVD and VHS — check them out).

Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes (Special Edition) [DVD](1978) DVD
A tomato farm downwind from the local nuclear reactor grows intelligent, monster-sized vegetables (or are they fruits?) that run amok and threaten Southern California. Can anything stop the killer fruits (or are they vegetables?), or will mankind drown in a sea of ketchup? Outrageous sci-fi spoof features David Miller, Jack Riley, a cameo by the San Diego Chicken and the hit song “Puberty Love.” 90 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English; audio commentary; deleted scenes; featurettes; theatrical trailer; radio spots; trivia; more.

Is humanity about to be trampled like…well, like tomatoes? John Astin (“The Addams Family”), George Clooney (“ER”), and Rick Rockwell (“Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire”) star. 98 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; theatrical trailer.

Killer Tomatoes Strike Back! [DVD](1991) DVD

Killer Tomatoes Eat France! [DVD](1991) DVD

Zombie ToysThis is one of the coolest plush toys since the Black Knight from Monty Python’s Holy Grail (which is also available at ThinkGeek). These clever geeks over at ThinkGeek made these super cuddly, scarey, creepy little Zombies that you can rip to shreds.

Zombie ToysBut the best part about this product might just be their marketing and the demo video they made. Check it out below it is worth it. (I have to say the folks over there are just crazy — looks like a place I would like to work — pretty sure I would fit right in with the wackos.)

So here is another I Want It Wednesday post that just might wind up being something I do eventually get.

Watched the movie 28 Weeks Later the other day even though I really did not like the first film. The first film, 28 Days Later, was much better than the second one and that still isn’t saying too much. Both films spend far too much time showing us shots of an empty London and never bother […]
