Herschel Walker Calls ‘Fright Night’ A Stupid Movie At Runoff Rally

Published

on

Herschel Walker is facing a runoff in his bid for a seat at the Georgia State Senate. However, it’s his rallying cry for votes at a recent assembly that got people wondering — and Twitter chattering — about whether or not werewolves can kill vampires.

That’s right, the ex-athlete turned Trump endorsee, wanted to use a metaphor for trusting in yourself and he decided that the movie Fright Night was the perfect example.

Standing at the dias among a crowd of people, he recalls that he was up one night watching a “stupid” movie called, “Fright Night, Freak Night, or some type of night.”

Some of us here at iHorror thought it was a joke – perhaps a “Bad Lip Reading” skit? It’s safe to assume as we did, the football star meant the 1985 horror comedy Fright Night starring Chris Sarandon and William Ragsdale.

He could have been talking about the 2011 Colin Farrell remake, but we love nostalgia so we are going to go with the former.

“I don’t know if you know, but vampires are some cool people, are they not?” Walker told the crowd. “Uh, I guess it depends on the vampire? I don’t feel comfortable making such broad generalizations. But I’m going to tell you something I found out: A werewolf could kill a vampire, did you know that? I didn’t know that, so I didn’t want to be a vampire anymore, I wanted to be a werewolf.” C’mon, werewolves die easier than vampires. And was there a werewolf in Fright Night?

Anyway…the point of his speech was faith. He describes one scene in the movie where vampire hunter Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall) tries to use an assortment of anti-vampire tools to kill the “master,” but it doesn’t work because Vincent has terminal imposter syndrome. “You have to have faith for this to work on me.” Walker says about the movie scene. “And that’s the way it is in our life: It don’t work unless you got faith. It’s time for us to have faith.” George Michael would agree.

The weird address has gone viral and it has people wondering a few things: can a werewolf kill a vampire? Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf? Or just, WTF is he talking about?

The moral of the story might be what Joe Russo says in his tweet about the whole diatribe: “Don’t vote for anyone who calls FRIGHT NIGHT a ‘stupid movie.’”

Published

Plaza

Aubrey Plaza has long been a self-affirmed “sea hag”. Her dark personality and sense of humor has long been a favorite of ours. Now, with her production company, Evil Hag Productions, she intends to make a family-friendly film that is something like Tim Burton meets Hocus Pocus.

While talking to GQ, Plaza said that she would like to “…fill the Tim Burton slot” by putting together her first directorial effort. The family-friendly affair is said to be a mix of Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.

Plaza can currently be seen in Evil Hag Production’s Emily the Criminal and on HBO’s White Lotus season 2.

We can’t wait to see what Plaza has to offer in her directorial efforts. It would be great to see her built a brand and aesthetic as awesome as Burton’s.

Published

Knock

M. Night Shyamalan’s next film is already on its way. The ominous Knock at the Cabin is incredibly intriguing, especially since the first trailer gave away so little. The first poster for Knock at the Cabin is just as ominous as the teaser.

Shyamalan’s last film Old, played up the Twilight Zone like mystery and took it to Sci-Fi levels. Knock at the Cabin looks to trump that and move far into the horror/thriller genre.

The synopsis for Knock at the Cabin goes like this:

“While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.”

Knock at the Cabin arrives in theaters beginning February 3.

Cocaine

Elizabeth Banks has decided to grace our eyeballs with one of the wildest titles, posters and film synopsis’ of the past decade. I’m of course talking about Cocaine Bear. This true story is one of those that you have to see to believe. But, the title is exactly what you think it is.

Kentucky 1985 was the time and place. A really unlucky bear ingested a lot of cocaine that was dropped in the woods by a smuggler. Unfortunately, the bear died from an overdose but not before going on a real rager beforehand.

Deadline’s synopsis for Cocaine Bear is as follows:

“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”

The film stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Cocaine Bear comes raging into theaters February 24.
