The 2016 Rio Olympics happened and I couldn’t tell you who won or lost, but I’m sure much was celebrated.
During the 2016 Olympics, Deadman’s Tome held its very own horror Olympics. The horror Olympics had stories compete against one another in various categories such as Most Read, Zombie, Best Sex, and Straight-Up Murder. While I made an announcement of the winners via Deadman’s Tome Podcast, let me do a quick rundown for those that didn’t catch it. You can listen to the announcement here:
The 2016 Horror Olympics was a spur of the moment thing, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Because the contest was so spontaneous (and because Deadman’s Tome doesn’t have the money), Deadman’s Tome does not have actually golden medals. However, I think the winners deserves some recognition. Perhaps a certificate of some sort. Maybe access to the backroom where the groupies and “party favors” are kept.
The winners received additional readers, and every view is money. The winners will also receive a certificate.
Deadman’s Tome is home to Book of Horrors, a horror anthology loaded with terrifying horror short stories that’ll chill you to the bone!
FOX, the same network behind GLEE, is remaking Rocky Horror Picture Show for TV.
That’s all I have to say, right? The proof is clear as a day that FOX intends for this series into BE their GLEE replacement.
Tim Curry gave FOX his blessing and is even in the show as the Narrator.
Fox’s two-hour event, airing October 20, follows sweethearts Janet Weiss (Victoria Justice) and Brad Majors (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon the residence of Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox), a mad scientist/alien, who is hosting a Transylvanian science convention to showcase Rocky Horror (Staz Nair), who has been created to fulfill Frank’s desires.
Regardless of Tim Curry giving his blessing, FOX is going to take the heart and soul out of Rocky Horror Picture Show and sell it as some waterdown mainstream GLEE clone with transvestites. The original was edgy, offensive, and relished in its tastelessness, but this shallow clone is a TV show? Rocky Horror is a TV show now?
I predict that anyone that talks negatively about FOX’s Rocky Horror remake will be labeled as some sort of anti-LGBT bigot. I also predict that FOX will double down on the Rocky Horror remake and will last for two seasons.
Turbo Slut 5K is an ultra-violent, hyper-sexualized, and brutally offensive tale of sizzling lust, savage revenge, and the triumph over some ruthless misogynistic scum f**ks told in six exciting chapters!
With the Rio Olympics underway, and the various sports dominating the trends, it seems fitting for Deadman’s Tome to showcase its own Olympics.
