The Day After Tomorrow 9 years later..

I forgot how great this movie was in a disaster edge of your seat kind of way.. It's on HBO and I'm re-scared just like I was when I first saw it in 2004..

I was scared by weather then .. Little did I know how much I'd be even more frightened by 2012 and now the prospects for 2013.. The climate is changing rapidly. No doubt about it... We are powerless in the end..

I recall reviewing the movie for the HORROR REPORT way back in 2004. I think I was critical of the imagery but not of the story. It was a typical disaster movie, big budget, all that. But there was a deeper meaning in it that we should have all taken away. And now, in 2013, have we learned anything? Would THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW may more sense now if it was released this year instead of then?

Fun fact: What inspired the DAY AFTER TOMORROW? None other than the book by Whitley Streiber and Art Bell, THE COMING GLOBAL SUPERSTORM. When that book came out Matt Lauer laughed at them both on the TODAY show... Today we nam…

Snowy box office weekend

Cold and snow is being blamed for lousy box office numbers.. Friday night figures trickling in.. HANSEL AND GRETAL was able to top the box office with a lower-than-expected $6 million opening night .. It's projected to make around for $17 million the weekend--but that is decidedly lower than the predicted $50 mil...

Could snow really have that large of an impact? Major metro areas in the Northeast hardly got an inch..

But it's a good excuse when a much anticipated film flops during the cold weeks of late January...

Just when you thought death panels weren't going to happen

..maybe you should think again.
In Japan, a government official said the elderly should just hurry up and die.
In the UK, doctors feverishly work to not work feverishly on patients who are going to pass away--letting it just happen faster. Some countries in Europe are on the verge of allowing a 21st century medical eugenics tyrannical system to take over.
Perhaps the Georgia Guidestones are an inspiration around the planet.

And now this: The Associated Press, unbiased right?, allowed its medical writer, Mike Stobbe, to question aloud whether we should just let fat smokers die and be done with it. I mean, they are just in the way, right? With their large obese stomachs protruding from their bodies.. and the disgusting smelly cigarettes destroying their lives.. They a product of human waste. They are meaningless. They should just be permitted to go into a hole, take a bullet in the head, and rid themselves from us, so we can have more space, better air, and less money going to their medical…

Anonymous strikes: Online hacktivists gain control of US Sentencing Commission website

The news broke very late Friday night.. Anonymous, the group blamed for historic hackings in the past, struck again. This time it was in response to the suicide of Aaron Swartz. REDDIT's Swartz's suicide was blamed by some on the government's overzealous crackdown on his operations. Today, USSC.GOV was taken down and replaced by this message:
Citizens of the world,Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the "discretion" or prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain."Family of Swartz and friends alike said he killed …

Into the fray: Stephen King speaks

He wrote an opinion piece on guns and violence .. And in part, he is critical of the media, the NRA, and the United States... MORE..

STEPHEN KING WRITES, IN PART: “21. Any bills to change existing gun laws, including those that make it possible for almost anyone in America to purchase a high-capacity assault weapon, quietly disappear into the legislative swamp. “22. It happens again and the whole thing starts over.”

A REMINDER: The headlines today you are seeing are real. They may seem unreal.. they may seem fictitious.. but they are nothing but reality, for better or worse--and mostly worse..
Obama vs. the Fly: Call it a draw?
North Korea's Un has been busy lately.. when he's not threatening a nuclear test on the United States it's threatening South Korea over United Nations sanctions..
Shallow 4.1 mag earthquake hits east Texas.. .. just days ago a 3.0 mag shook North Texas.. and days before that a question arose about whether a link existed between earthquakes and gas drilling..
Fracking lights up North Dakota--so much that you can see it from space!
Anytime: Big New Zealand volcano on the verge of eruption..
The vomiting bug: New stomach illness spreading..
Researchers are tracking the flu through Twitter..
A new threat and a new fear: Antibiotic-resistant diseases..
The threat of disease or global plague sure doesn't stop creative scientists from doing their job.…

Obama's face attacked by fly drones!?

The attack of the flies took place yesterday.  President Obama was speaking when a fly (at least one) continued to land on his face during his event.. photos snapped of the event and prominently placed on the Drudge Report with "Fly guy" as the headline show the President with the insect on his forehead, his cheek, and his lip.

The HORROR REPORT wrote last night that conspiracy theories are sure to rise..

And last night, the HORROR REPORT received an interesting theory through email, reprinted below without edit for your enjoyment and discernment:
I read the story from the telegraph that you linked about flies having constant battles with obama. i think everyone has it wrong. sure, maybe its proof that he's a reptilian or something like that, but i think it's even weirder! I think it is a small drone landing on him! a spy drone, maybe from the middle east or russia. we do it, right? why can't someone else. they make drones as small as gnats so a fly wouldn't be …

Why do flies continue to attack Pres. Obama?

He was speaking today being menaced by a fly.. At one point it landed squarely on his four head. But it is not the first time he has been attacked by the insect, there just seems to be something very strange about President Obama and how flies are attracted to him.. I'm sure someone in the paranormal or conspiracy world will say it is a sign that he is the beast or the antichrist.. Maybe he just needs to wash his face?

The class of 99 loses a wonderful soul

A little personal issue tonight is on my mind..

I have become aware of some troubling news tonight ... a friend of mine and a fellow graduate from the class of 1999 somewhere in Pennsylvania, somewhere in time, has passed away way too early after a long battle with breast cancer. I won't give details of her full name or location, but I decided to write something about this to share some thoughts...

Her name is Lori. And she was filled with life from the moment I met her way back in my high school years. I saw her about two years ago for the first time in ages .. she was in a darker place, battling cancer, and fighting for her life. But living each moment..

I did not speak to her for several months, but that last time I did she seemed ok. She seemed happy, and truly joyful to have moments of life to enjoy.

Today I came to understand that she passed into the next realm, whatever that realm may be..

She is gone too early.. she is gone to fast. The class of 99 is without someone --already…

AS THE EYES ROLL: A GIF FOR THE AGES AS MICHELLE OBAMA DOES AN EYE ROLL AT HOUSE SPEAKER

President Obama begins his second term

Obama. Part 2. Good luck Mr. President. Full speech here. Obama said as he looked over the Capitol,  “I want to look out one more time because I’m not going to see this again" It must be an amazing sight..

HORRIFIC HOUSEKEEPING: Call me baby

This is the mid-winter slump, if you did not know that already. Today is supposedly the most depressing day of the year (bills are due, and somehow we get treated to AP and Reuters dispatches each January 20ish to stories about how we should all be sad right now, one month or so after the upbeat time of Christmas).. I am not sad, so I guess as usual I am not marching to the beat of the drum. If there is a drum I'd love to know the drummer..

Nonetheless, I just wanted to put out that every now and then on the top part of HORROR REPORT, you may see something that says "lines are open" or "call me now."  I am being literal.  When that appears, it means I am available for phone calls if you are using Skype. You can simply click on the link and you can call me through Skype.. I will try to answer all calls I get, and it could be a great way for me to interact with readers..

Even when the lines are closed, I am always available at Bryan@horrorreport.com. Every now and …

Exit stage Left? or right? When an inauguraral ball bursts

It was supposed to be about hope and change. Instead it ended badly, with a rapper's performance slamming President Obama and bringing up 9/11 conspiracies... and it all happened last night at one of President Obama's events.

The rapper's name: Lupe Fiasco. He's a real person--though he isn't as large a star as some others in his genre.. Until now: Last night, while performing, he was literally taken off the stage. The DAILY CALLER has more..

I wish I could have had the money for this

The original batmobile driven by Adam West and Burt Ward in the 1960s sells at an auction for $4.6 million..

How amazing it would be to drive the interstate to work in this. Congrats to the lucky rich guy who now has a part of historic pop culture..

Russia is cold in the winter but recent weather seems unprecedented

A snow 'tsunami' has swallowed cars, buildings.. Towns..Russia Today reports this: While the snowstorms have caused inconvenience for large population centers in western Russia, they have been life-threatening further east in the country. The polar circle city of Norilsk has been buried under 10 feet of snow – entire apartment blocks, markets, stores and offices were buried under snow overnight.
