Short Movie:The Adventures Of Senses Fail

Haha,okay this is a really old short that my Sister Tiara and I made.It's about Buddy(The singer) and Dan(the drummer) from the band Senses Fail.It's a little spoof about how Buddy is an alcoholic and Dan is bulemic..and Buddy's girlfriend gives them an intervention.We did it off the top of our heads,but it's fucking hilarious.The quality isn't that great,but whatever.I decided to slap it together and post it for your enjoyment.

I'm working on piecing together 2 more of our short movies,so i should have them posted in the next day.I got a new editing program,so i'm pretty stoked about putting together some of our new material.Anyways i'll be posting my movies on:

Feel free to add me!

Photo Fab

Okay,so i'm thinking we the bloggers don't put enough photo's in our blogs.I think we need a little more (not to mention a little more SEXY pictures),heh heh heh.So i thought why not do a post entirely with pictures,because pictures do tell stories just as much as words do.So throughout the years i've been to a couple amazing Halloween conventions in Chicago,and i've met some of my horror hero's there.So i bet your thinking "Aleata are you trying to win another contest"?Not this time folks,i would like to share some of my proudest moments in time.Getting to meet some of these spectacular horror icons/muscians/fx artists/actors/performers was a life changing expirence for me,and it was even more encouragement to pursue what i do best.So i thought why not share some of these memories with you guys,along with a tad bit of my reminiscing.So join me in this groovy macabre dance down memory lane.
P.S. if you notice my smile looks a little crazy,it's because i had vampire teeth put in there.Oh and don't mind some of the collages with the pictures,i scanned some of these straight from my scrapbook.

Yes,this is actually him.Butch Patrick who played Eddie Munster on the infamous T.V. show "The Munsters".Being one of my favorite T.V. shows ever,i was estastic to be able to meet the man himself.Now only if i could have also been honored with the great luck to have met Fred Gwynne(who played Herman Munster) and the GOREgeous Yvonne De Carlo(Lily Munster).I would have melted with pure love into a comatose state for 2 1/2 weeks exactly.When i come out of it you would better believe someone is getting raped!

I know you guys are going to be jealous about myelf getting to meet this lovely lady.Mrs. Cassandra Peterson,whom is more commonly known to the world of terror as Elvira.The one and only mistress of darkness!Now i have a truly heart wrenching story behind this photo.My sister Brittany and I waited in line for hours to get to meet Elvira and get a signed copy of her new release at the time "Elvira's haunted hills".Which for the record is an absolutely hilariously fun comedy/horror/mystery flick.Now Cassandra is not only a born performer,with an exuberant presence that could make even the most bitter person glow with joy.But she is also the kindest,she has such a natural friendly quality that it's hard to find in a lot of famous people.So anyways after waiting for a couple of hours in line her manager or whomever was running the signing said "it's time to finish up and go".I was right there ready to meet her intoxicated with happiness.Then this lady goes "no more pictures either",just being a bitch.Well not only did Elvira sign movies for my sister and I,but she posed for a photo with me as well.It was great after the lady got all pissy Cassandra was like "no i'll get a picture with you,your my kinda girl".Serisouly i don't think she realized how much that meant to me.So here it is and here's to you Cassandra!

Here's Cassandra without her Elvira get up on.

We all know him from movies such as Spider baby,House of 1,000 corpses,The devils rejects,and many many more great flicks!But he was mainly recognized when made famous as the psycho clown owner of a stop-n go type gas station with his own personal horror ride,Captin Spaulding.Since the 1960s he has taken the horror world by storm and left corpses along the way.Ladies and gentlemen the one,the only,Mr Sid Haig!He was so nice in person,and i found out that he's an ordained minister,betcha didn't know that!I'm just full of fun facts!

Okay this man i recognized when i heard his voice,i had no idea he was at the convention.I kid you not tears welled up in my eyes as i turned around to face Bill fucking Moseley.This guy has been one of my favorite horror actors since i can remember.His voice just sends sassy little shivers up and down my spine.I can't wait to see the new movie he's in called "Dead Air".Not only is he a talented actor,but he's a great muscian,and he's performed with acts such as "Cornbugs" and "Buckethead".

You know how most people are deathly afraid of clowns?Well i have a bit of an obsession and undying love for clowns..almost to a sick extent.I have never understood why people are so scared of clowns.I actually wanted to be a clown for a couple years of my life,hey i'm colorful and adore my sick sense of humor.So anyways these two goofballs are two of my favorite clowns!They do performances for all kinds of events including conventions,weddings, get the drift.Well these two clowns have the greatest sadistic jokes that'll ever violate your ears.I got to witness them walk up to this random guy and who was talking to these other people.Twitch was like "hey remember that one time we got wasted and stole that car,then ended up in jail",and just went on this in depth rant about their "old days".Fucking hilarious!Also Twitch and I happened to both be sporting purple and black striped attire.Heckles pointed it out at the convention and i've been in love with Twitch ever since.

Here's a photo of Heckles in Twitch in color,i felt it was appropriate.

Dee Snider,now if you don't know who Dee is,then you need to catch up with the times.He's the lead singer of a group formed in the 80s by the name of "Twisted Sister".They released popular songs such as "We're not gonna take it" and "Burn in hell".Sound familiar,they should!Well Dee now hosts a radio show with Fangoria and his beautiful co-host Debbie Rochon.If your interested in listening in on the movie madness go to I also just want to add that Dee is another awesome individual to meet in person!

I actually never got this mans name,but i'm pretty sure my mom said he was in actor.Alls i know is we were both in some skeleton gear and i kept seeing him everywhere at the convention.Everytime he saw me he'd be like ,"THERE SHE IS" and we'd do this dramatic run and hug ordeal.He was really fucking cool!

Just a little extra here's a couple more pictures of me hanging out there.There's a couple of people's pictures that got lost on my moms old computer.I have a picture of myself and Dustin Diamond.Now i'm not one of those people who gets "star struck",i'm pretty chill when i meet famous people.But when i met Dustin i went into shock,i just stood there and starred at him.My mom had to kind of butt into the conversation and say, "she wants to get a picture with you".If it hasn't clicked yet,Dustin played "Screech" off of "Saved by the bell".I also met a gaggle of lovely ladies that did the fashion shows there,and Bobby Weiner the FX-make up artist.I met her two years in a row.Originally i wanted to be an FX make-up artist,i even had a school lined up in California to attend back when i was 18.But i decided i wanted to be a Director and backed out.But Bobby was one of my references.So go check out her make-up by the name of "Bloody Mary".They sell it at Hot Topic's everywhere.

Me Walking around

Me dancing with a pink gorilla in front of a bunch of people

So that's it for now my little love birds!Hope you've enjoyed our memory bubble together today!But serisouly as i was writing this i just thought of me talking to people and a little bubble popping up above my head with photo memories in it,haha.

Ta Ta for now.

The Article

Okay,so recently Brian's Ms. horror blogoshpere contest on was the subject of a post on article was written by Heidi something or other.Anyways she states this in the article "In a truly nauseating attempt at attention grabbing and women-judging, a blog called The Vault of Horror has started something called the 2009 Ms. Horror Blogosphere Contest, which pits female horror bloggers against one another in a popularity voting exploitationsplosion." Okay "attention grabbing and women judging",this contest was created to promote our blogs and be a fun way to meet other horror bloggers.Brian is also hosting a Mr horror blogosphere contest too.In no way is he degrading or stepping on any of us.I think the contest was a great idea!I didn't start my blog to long ago and i now have more people interested in reading my blog.I love meeting and talking to new people about the horror genere.I think all the participants are absolutely great writers and all run awesome horror blogs.I always check out all of the blogs when i have the time.The way she stated her opinion is like it's a nasty catfight to the death,and we're all trying to win it by using our looks.First off we're WOMEN we will be beautiful if we want to.It's not a crime to be attractive.And of course we were asked to submit photo's of ourselves to go with our interviews.It gives the readers a chance to see the bloggers that they're reading about.It's not like Brian asked us to submit "lude" or "sexy" photo's of ourselves.We were asked to pick whatever photo's we wanted to use.Which none of us submitted any type of indecent photo's anyways.I do model occasionally and i'm proud of my body.I'm not ashamed to post any photo's of myself on my blog.This is a problem,why?It's my choice,not yours.
Then she continues on stating, ""The winner of the contest not only gets bragging rights and the right to display the nifty Ms. Horror Blogosphere 2009 on her site-she will also get to choose an honest-to-goodnes prize," claims Brian Solomon, who thought up the contest. Despite being a contest amongst bloggers, who are writers and journalists, each entry requires a photo of the lady and a bio. Which begs the question - why aren't they just being judged on the quality of their blog and writing? Answer: because it is never too late to judge women based on their looks...".Obviously we are being judged by the quailty of our blogs,the contest is for our blogs.The addition of the interview and photo's was another great way to get to know all the bloggers.He began the contest posting all of our blog links and names,the interviews came later.None of the questions were offensive in any way to me.It was really fun to answer them because they weren't typical boring interview questions.We got to be really creative in our answers.Not to mention if any of the girls were offended,i'm sure they would have backed out of the contest.
Then she moves on to personally target me and one of my interview questions."And while we're super flattered to be listed as an inspiration for Sarah Jahier of Fatally-Yours, we're sad to see her as an entry in the contest. It's mostly statements like this that really get our goat, as voiced by entrant Aleata Illusion, "If a guy sees a really smokin' chick, he's going to be interested in reading her blog automatically. That gives it a bit of a sexist aspect, but it's not always a bad thing to be able to grab someone's attention that way." Oh i'm sorry for being completely honest,well news flash to Heidi,THAT'S THE WAY THE WORLD WORKS!Not just with females,the same thing goes for guys.Just check out Heidi's "Scary studs" articles. it just me or is she being completely hypocritical?!.
And now she speaks out directly to me,"Actually, Aleata, if you want anyone to take you seriously as a writer, it is a bad thing. If you want to be an Internet blog celebrity, which many people do, go right ahead. This will make it easier to separate the women from the girls when we get all that sorted out".So now i'm not a woman because i have the freedom to post photo's of myself on my blog AND i write.Oh no!That's right it's against human nature to be an attractive blogger..i totally forgot.That's by far one of the most idiotic things i've ever read.Needless to say i don't run a horror blog,because i want to be an "internet blog celebrity".I write because it's a fun release to get all my movie mania thoughts out.My main interest is making films,i don't even have that much time to dedicate to keeping my blog updated,which sucks.And the last time i checked i didn't even have a any votes,as you can see BJ-C is in the lead.And she deserves it,you can tell she busts ass on "Day of the woman".So Heidi get your priorities straight.This is a horror blog competition and that's what it's being judged as.
In closing,you know what's annoying and unnecessary Heidi,your opinion.So next time think before you write something so ludicrous about something so innocent.Not to mention you just made yourself look bad in front of hundreds of readers and are currently being laughed at.
But I'm not going spend anymore time arguing over the internet about this,because i do have what is commonly referred to as a "life" outside of the internet.I use my time to write fun stuff i'm interested in,not tear down other bloggers.Just as a couple other people were irked about the article,I felt compelled to post something on it as well.Especially for the simple fact that she felt the need to personally target me in the article.Again i would just like to thank anyone who takes the time to read my blog,i appreciate it more than you would ever know.


And Don't forget to check out all the girls blogs and vote at

Also check out BJ-C's voice on the matter:

Thank you and goodnight!

Aleata Illusion

Oh snap!Look another photo of me to win a contest!Oh wait,that's just My sister and I making a spoof rap video..nevermind..

5 Romantic Horror Movies To Fall In Love With

Top 5 Most Romantic Horror Films:

Some of the very best horror films are romantic horror whether you realize it or not.There's always that underlying romance between a man and women crushed in movies.What says "I love you" like murdering your love objects entire family,or fighting your lover to the death.You can't deny it,love really bring out the psycho's.Oh the joys of love!Here are 5 of the best romantic horror films that you are bound to fall in love with.

5.)Suburban Nightmare(2004):This is the love story of love stories and a flick i never get sick of.Starring Brandy Little and Trent Haaga this is a film about a really dysfunctional marriage.So what happens when a a husband and wife are both psychotic serial killers and they get into a marital fight?Well an all out fight to the death of course!Written and directed by John Keeyes;this is a romantically bloody brawl between two complete mental cases.Remarkably fun with a couple of good twists.The dialogue is so sweet in a maniac relationship type of way,no wait,it's just sweet.

4.)The Signal(2007):Ohh David Bruckner/Jacob Gentry/Dan Bush brought us this insane love story.While cheating on her husband Mya(Anessa Ramsey) and her lover Ben(Justin Welborn) expirence an odd occurance.The t.v. flashes on transmitting some kind of weird signal,as the t.v. fuzzes multi-colored splotches.All electronic devices cease to work(aside from the crazy signal) and people start becoming homicidal maniacs.It's a bloodbath from start to finish as Ben desperately searches for Mya.But of course there's the psychotic murderer husband Lewis(A.J. Bowen) whos brain is scrambled by the signal and also wants to find Mya.I just would like to note that A.J. Bowen's performance in this flick is one of the best i've ever seen.He's so great portraying the confused and insane husband.He brings a lot of good humor to the movie,then in a second can be pretty scary.Coming to a close with lot's of excitement,chaos,and catatonia.Mya,Ben,and Lewis all meet in terminal 13.

3.)A Bucket Of Blood(1959):This is a story about Walter(Dick Miller) who is a busboy at a beatnik joint.Envious of all the artists and poets and also in love with the beautiful Carla(Barboura Morris) he dreams of becoming a famous sculpter.Things begin to get complicated when Walter starts murdering people and molding clay over their corpses as art.It began as an accident,but after all the attention he gains from his "art" he can't stop.All that trouble just to get the attention of a woman you love.Directed by Roger Corman this in fact my favorite movie ever made,i mean ever!

2.)Sick Girl(2006):Starring Misty Mundae(aka Erin Brown) and Angela Bettis this is by far my favorite Lucky McKee movie!Being misunderstood by everyone(especially girlfriends)because of her undying love for her bugs Ida(Angela Bettis) is a lonely Entomologist.One day she meets Misty who she immediately falls for and they move in together.A mysterious box shows up one day on Ida's doorstep and inside is a strange bug.Eventually the bug gets loose and burrrows in one of Ida's pillows,later biting Misty.As Ida begins noticing Misty's odd and angry behaviour the bug bite starts to change her physically and mentally.She becomes a killer queen bug who is also impregnated with a whole buncha babies.Trust me this flick is a great time!This is infact a Masters of horror just for the record.With an ending that is sure to surprise anyone.

1.)High Tension(2003):
Directed by Alexander Aja.There's no perticular reason why i picked "High tension" for number one,because i love all these movies so much.But here we have the story of Marie(Cecile De France) and Alex(Maiwenn Le Besco) who are on their way to Alex's familys house in the Country for college break.When an unsuspected murderer shows up family members are brutally murdered one by one.Seriously like the title this movie has so much intensity to it.It follows Marie through the night as she alludes and trails the fat sweaty killer to save Alex.Now i really don't want to drop any spoilers about this movie,because it's so good.So just go and watch it,and you'll understand why it's on my list.

Double Feature (The Uninvited/A Tale Of Two Sisters)

The Uninvited(2009)/A Tale Of Two Sisters(2003)

Alright just for the record this wasn't supposed to be the first double feature I was going to do. But things worked out this way. So my "Double Features" are original movies and their much worse counterpart;their remake. I have a bunch in the works I'm just always busy busy busy, but here's the first one in this wonderful category. "The Uninvited" and "A tale of two sisters".
Alright so the basic concept of this movie is a girl gets released from a mental hospital after enduring the effects of her mothers death and her father, sister and soon to be step mother greet her when she arrives home. After awhile she starts to realize that something is not right at all. She gets all kinds of crazy notions about her (soon to be) step mother, which leads to a string of confusing, and disastrous events. "The uninvited" is really simple and easy to follow, but on the other hand "A tale of two sisters" will lose you until the end. That's the great thing about "A tale of two sisters" you really have to pay close attention to every small detail.

Remaking one of my favorite movies "A tale of two sisters" with all this shit is extremely disappointing. *Picks up a rusty ice pick and stabs myself in the eyeballs* Whhhhy?!. No,I don't want to know what could have possibly been going through someones mind when they remade this. Not to mention throwing Elizabeth Banks in there as the evil step mother, that's like throwing a dick in my ear out of a dark alley. A dark alley that I was convinced was a candy shop. Are you starting to see where I'm going with this? And I can't understand why they would try to push Mrs. Banks boobs up in extremely awkward positions to attempt to make them look bigger. Elizabeth Banks gives off happy go lucky vibes in every movie I see her in. She's a very smiley cheerful looking person, which I'm not by any means saying that's a bad thing, it's great! I think she's a wonderful actress, and she's played many hilarious and awesome parts. But she is in no way intimidating, it kills the entire movie. BAM Fail! I realize the wicked step mother is all in her head, but it's the way the character is perceived by the girl. And she sees the step mother as an ominous person whom murdered her mother. Pop me some popcorn and put mother fuckin' Bai Ling or even Rose Mcgowan in the part as the evil step mother. Give me some real threatening and creepy aspects. If your going to put on your director shoes and remake a fucking instant classic like "A tale of two sisters" fucking do it right! So I frown upon the Guard brothers remake, a wholllle lot!

Alright let's start from the beginning when I first heard about this movie it was from my sister Brittany. She told me it was really similar to "A tale of two sisters", so I wasn't sure if it was a remake yet. So I went walking in the dark of night through some sassy fall leaves and rented it. Just a little fact I want to throw in here, "A tale of two sisters" has one of the best movie covers I've ever seen. Take a peek here:

Alright now let's take a minute to compare it to this piece of poo:

What's the verdict people? Yeah, I thought you'd see it my way.

Another thing why would they rename it "The Uninvited", wow that really has no relation to the movie whatsoever. I don't know what angle they were trying to come from with that. It's also completely ridiculous how OBVIOUS they make everything. The sisters presence or lack of. They have her leaving the room after 2 frickin seconds in every god damn scene. They in no way made it inconspicuous. You can clearly tell that all the actual living characters are looking past her. They did the dead girl scenes so horribly I literally laughed at it for a split second then proceeded to yawn. In the original you feel a deep connection between the two sisters, in this remake it all feels very fake. They don't capture that same type of love that the sisters convey with each other. It's impossible for anyone to replicate what Kim Jee-Woon has created, and also the absolutely astounding cinematography shot by Lee Mo-Gae.
This is psychological horror at it's very best! This is a movie not even Chuck Pallanicks "Fight Club" can keep up with.(Aleata fact:I love "Fight Club")! They ruined the scariest scene in the movie with that Ginger kid and CGI, good fucking job! Let's just slap ginger kids with bad corpse make-up and slap those same gingers with some CGI effects and we've got some scary shit! No, no you don't god dammit!

I mean you don't understand what a fucking masterpiece they ruined unless you've previously viewed "A tale of two sisters". They turned it into another American piece of trash! I tried to like this movie, I have such love and respect for the original that I tried to give it a chance (For the sole fact that someone enjoyed it enough to remake it), but I really couldn't. People only care about money, not the movies! Their comedy aspects failed! "A tale of two sisters" also had one of the greatest scores I've ever heard, it really pulls you into the mood of the movie. There's a lot of stuff they left out which is obvious to anyone who knows their movies. It's not like I condone identical remakes, it's sometimes good if people try a completely different route, it's just they pulled all the really good and interesting stuff. Which again makes the remake a complete and utter bore. I really don't think that American directors put any thought into the Asian films they remake. It's basically a trendy happening thing going on now. They see that "The Ring" and "The Grudge" sold, so they start going after plenty more including "One missed call" (which was actually supposed to be my first double feature), "Pulse"(I didn't even like the original to that movie), and "Dark Water". There's so many more I'm just throwing out some examples.

I could give "The uninvited" props for one thing only in the whole movie, and that is the shot with the boy with the broken/twisted back. I thought the effects on that were pretty neat and creepy. Nevertheless it doesn't compare to the scene in "a tale of two sisters" with the girl under the cupboard in the kitchen. You know what? I actually might put that on my list of creepiest horror/psychological thriller movie moments! It would be high on my list. Alright well I'm going to wrap this up, so I don't go into incoherent ramblings.In conclusion "The uninvited" is not worth seeing in my opinion. And if you haven't seen "A tale of two sisters" yet, what's wrong with you..GO NOW AND RENT/BUY IT!

The Uninvited:0/5
A Tale Of Two Sisters:5/5
