Any of you in LA, or can get there by Friday night? You may want to attend this show, wherein the fabulous Mr. Combs will perform with the cast of Re-Animator: The Musical.

More info at the Steve Allen Theater website. Tickets still available as of Sunday morning. :D

Clearly this is what I should be doing at 5:30 in the morning. [10 Aug 2010|05:27am]

So, dear fen, I've gone and started an official reanimatorkink  meme. I expect to see a mad flurry of activity now, since it's obviously what we've all been waiting for!

Iconage - Jeffrey Combs - Re-Animator & DS9 [22 Jun 2010|04:09pm]

OMG, I made icons! I do not do this enough. It is so fun. Anyway, here's a whole lot of Jeffrey Combs centric icons (surprise), most of them variations on themes. Also, theoretically there are spoilers in these, but I'd say the statute of limitations has long run out on both these fandoms. Credit if you take. Feel free to use blank ones as bases, but credit me if you do.

{16 Herbert West/Re-Animator}
{31 Weyoun/DS9}

Follow the fake cut...

Abominable on SyFy! [23 Jan 2010|05:48am]

I'm a little late on announcing this, but for those of you that are unaware, on Sunday (January 24th) at 10:30am EST SyFy channel will be showing the film Abominable, which Jeff appears in.

In normal stores, the film can be a bit of a hard find (though eBay and Amazon can make it easy). If you haven't seen it yet, I highly suggest setting your DVR to record or sitting down to breakfast in front of your TV!

Cross-posted like a spazzy fangirl. (:

Happy "Re-Animator" Day! [10 Oct 2009|07:57am]

[ mood | tired ]

October 10th, 10:33pm...

"Yes, I!"

This may seem like an ordinary day and time to most, but this is a special day for Re-Animator fans.

In the late evening of October 10th, doctors Herbert West (Jeff Combs) and Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) cajoled their way past the guard into the Miskatonic Morgue with a sole purpose - to re-animate their first human subject!

After Dr. West injected 15cc's of reagent with no results, he chose to re-inject the subject with another 20cc's...and the results were soon very evident!

We propose that today, October 10th become official Re-Animator Day!

Celebrate by watching the film with friends, at a local theater, or just by yourself! You can also use our special "audience participation" we created several Halloweens ago to make the film even more fun! Check it out here

Happy viewing!

Herbert West Action Figure Update [04 Sep 2009|07:19pm]

[ mood | informative/too hot ]

Hey all,

Anyone who was curious about the status of the Jeff as Herbert West figure, I just got an update from the manufacturers that they're "experiencing some delays with our other products and will have the Herbert West Figure available late first quarter of 2010."

So, we have to wait a bit longer, but it IS definitely coming out. There was some concern it would be scrapped altogether for awhile there.

I can wait a bit longer if I know it's coming out and my credit card is breathing a sigh of relief! :P

(pardon the crosspostingness, wanted to tell everyone)

Happy Birthday Lovecraft! [19 Aug 2009|12:31am]

Howard Phillips Lovecraft
August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937

Everyone join me for a round of Dead Investigators!!

dead inves-ta-gators!
dead inves-ta-gators!
see how they rot!
hey tried to stop the cultists last night
heir entrails where cut out with sacrificial knives!
dead inves-ta-gators!

Be sure to have a plate of spaghetti today in honor of "the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." - Stephen King

My personal favorite of his was one of his early works; The Street. About a city's first street and how it watches the city grow around it to glory then fall into ruin, finally in a desperate move to reclaim it's former glory collapse itself and kills all of it's inhabitants.

Re-An Remake News (Possible) B.S. [06 Mar 2009|01:13am]

[ mood | informative/exhausted/happy ]

Thank GAWD!

ShockTilYouDrop caught up with Stuart Gordon at the Parasomnia screening I also attended last night and asked him directly about the Re-Animator remake:

"Last night, I caught up to original Re-Animator helmer Stuart Gordon who admitted to seeing the news break and being confused, especially after getting off the phone with producer Brian Yuzna. "I contacted Brian and he didn't know anything about it. I said, 'What's going with the remake?' And he asked, what remake?"

Original news item here

So it all seems like rumor for now. PHEW!

Thank goodness Ryan asked this, because it was one of the questions I wanted to ask Mr. Gordon, but I got all shy (and I was temporarily in "swoon mode" because Jeff Combs was there unexpectedly as well! *blush*)

Pics from "Herbert West - Re-Animator" The (Teen) Series [04 Mar 2009|12:54pm]

[ mood | curious ]

You may remember there's a "Herbert West - Re-Animator" the series coming out.

Well, Fangoria scored(?) some exclusive pics of the cast.

Check them out here

And here's the casting breakdown for anyone who missed it.

I'm curious to know what you guys think of this. I like young West, because he's a nice little homage to Jeff, but the rest of the cast are the cookie-cutter, sullen, angsty teens who populate all of the youth-oriented dramas these days.

Still, if there's some humor to it, it might be okay. I'm on the fence.

[ mood | ambivalent ]

I think we all knew this day would come:

They're REMAKING Re-Animator

No word yet whether Jeff (or any of the other original cast) will be part of it. :/

Thoughts, concerns, gripes, etc. are welcome.

New Herbert West Action Figure!!! [08 Feb 2009|07:01pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Spotted @ the NYCC this weekend.

Check it out!!!

And another photo

And one more full shot

I'm still gathering intel, but I know so far he's going to be twelve inches tall and doesn't he actually look like Jeff?!?! That's what excites me most! I love the removable lab coat, too! :)

Did anyone go to the NYCC this weekend who knows more? Please reply as I'm in the process of writing up a post for The Combs Corner and I need all the info/help I can get! Thanks! :D

More on this Herbert West Tween Nonsense [17 Nov 2008|07:37am]

[ mood | still annoyed ]

Bloody-Disgusting posted another bit about "Herbert West - Re-Animator: The Television Series" this morning.

Read it here

This sentence particularly bothers me:

"'Herbert West: Re-Animator The Series' will be for Science Fiction, what Buffy The Vampire Slayer was for gothic horror."
