When Josh was only 5 years old he came across a vision on the television that would stick with him for the rest of his life. It was of a man constructing a glove with knives on the fingers. As he watched this movie he became frightened as the man with a green and red shirt, fedora hat, and knives on his fingers started chasing a girl through a boiler room, scraping the knives on metal objects causing terrible screeching sounds. He quickly ran into his bedroom and crawled under the covers. As he sat there he grew curious and poked his head out from under the covers turned the T.V. on and watch the remainder of the film and the rest is history. From then on Josh Browning was a horror movie fan, and refuses to let go of his childhood obsession with Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Kruger and all the other great horror movie icons. Also at a young age Josh's mother turned him on to music. A product of the 80's Josh grew up with the likes of Prince, Billy Joel, The Police, and Rick Springfield, just to name a few. Music also had a tremendous effect on Josh's life. In high school he began playing the drums, and has since moved on to playing bass, guitar, piano, banjo, and mandolin. Josh has been in a few bands, most notable are the bands Three, and Compound F, both fairly popular his home town of Panama City, Florida. Josh now writes and records his own music, and is trying to make a name for himself as a songwriter. In May 2005, Josh married his high school sweetheart Jenny Lou Strickland. They have been a couple for going on 11 years and have been married 4. Josh lives in Norfolk, Virginia with his wife, 2 dogs, and cat. On a typical day you can find Josh sitting at his computer playing his guitar, or catch him at a theater seeing a movie, or at the Naro Expanded Cinema renting movies to put into his storage locker of a brain.
The rules of Halloween:
1. Wear a costume.
2. Hand out treats.
3. Never blow out a jack o’ lantern.
4. And ALWAYS check your candy.
Hello everyone, this is Josh and here are a few things you should know about me. I love music, and movies. I really look forward to movies when they hit theaters because I love going out, getting popcorn, seeing the movie on a big screen, hearing and seeing how people react to the film, and so on, that experience can make a shitty movie great in my opinion.
So, probably over a year ago, I was at the movies and saw a preview (another thing I love at the theaters) for this movie “Trick R’ Treat” and it looked awesome, just the kind of movie I would rush to the theaters to see on opening weekend. Fast forward to a present day… I find out that this movie is not going to be released in theaters!!!! I’m not too sure why, I have heard their were troubles with release due to studios, and such but, apparently the powers that be decided that the film was not worthy of a theatrical release and is going straight to DVD this October.
The trailer for this film looks incredible, and the reviews I have seen have all been positive. One review even said “it should be ranked with the original Halloween” . I am pretty outraged at the decision, myself. October is coming up and this would be the perfect movie for a Halloween release. Here is the plot summary and trailers for the film.
It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem… the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety-human and otherwise-try to survive the scariest night of the year.
