When you are writer with you own blog or website, you sometimes get inundated with tons of info on new films and other forms of media. Sometimes the pile can get kinda high and it can be hard to sort through and let's be realistic, there just isn't time to write about everything. This fact has been troubling me for some time. There are tons of cool things that I have had to pass over due to time.

Well, I think that I have figured out a solution. Today I am launching a new Friday feature called "Monster Mash." Essentially it will serve as a collection of stories from other sources that I just couldn't get a chance to write about myself.

Here we go.......

Haunted House The Movie

Here is a pretty interesting looking indie horror movie about eleven employees of Hellsgate, a popular Haunted House, who went missing in 1992.

"This is the real story of the last person to see them."

Cencoroll

My buddy Avery has been so excited about this new giant monster related anime for some time and I don't blame him, it looks pretty amazing.

Here is the synopsis:

"A huge monster shows up on the top of a building of an ordinary city, prompting the Defense Forces to go into action and causing something of an uproar in the citizens of the city. Yuki, a brave-hearted and naturally inquisitive girl, happens to know a secret: her friend Tetsu has been keeping and raising a strange creature called Cenco. When a mysterious boy appears who has control over the huge monster threatening the town, an unexpected battle between the creatures begins. But what are each of the combatants fighting for? Who are they really? And by getting involved in the battle, what fate will Yuki bring down upon herself?"

Robert Hood over at Undead Backbrain has been all over this one: http://roberthood.net/blog/index.php/2009/06/22/cencoroll/

Blastosaurus

Here is an interesting comic book about a crime-fighting dinosaur that's being made into a movie.

Attack of the 50ft Ghoul Girl

We here at Monster Island News love low-budget cinema, and this is about as low-budget as it gets. The film is called "Attack of the 50ft Ghoul Girl" and it was made by Brian Nichols with his own daughter playing the part of the monster filmed against cardboard sets in their backyard.

The film is set to debut this weekend at Monster Bash in Butler PA.

Undead Backbrain has been following this one for some time: http://undeadbrainspasm.blogspot.com/search?q=GHOUL+GIRL

Look for more cool stuff in next week's "Monster Mash" posting!
