According to Variety, MTV is planning a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Can’t wait to see which blandly interchangeable emo boy rocker they’ll try and make squeeze into Tim Curry’s fishnets. Or not.
Video Monday: Halloween!
The Life and Death of a Pumpkin, from the folks who bring you Chad Vader. Fan-freaking-tastic.
Old-School Daily Show: Steve Carell teaches Stephen Colbert the true meaning of Halloween. It’s heartwarming. In a way.
Robot Chicken takes on The Great Pumpkin. And yes, it’s flagged as mature content for good reason, but pretty damn funny.
Have a scary Christmas. I’m a big grouch, so this is the closest you’ll ever get to a Christmas-themed video post from me. (The Holiday Special doesn’t count.)
Okay, fine – one more. Your requisite Nightmare Before Christmas clip: This is Halloween. There’s also a new Marilyn Manson version for the 3-D re-release.
Backstreet’s back! I am so, so sorry. Here, have some Ghostbusters instead. Or Dead Man’s Party, an awesome Army of Darkness fanvid.
And of course, it’s just not Halloween without The Rocky Horror Picture Show: It’s just a jump to the left / And then a step to the right / With your hands on your hips / You bring your knees in tight / But it’s the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane / Let’s do the Time Warp again!
Any of you guys know how to Madison?
