They say celebrities always pass in threes… yesterday it was Gary Coleman, and today it’s Dennis Hopper. Dennis Hopper was a very talented actor/writer/director who gave us some great b-movies over his 56 year career in the business. Some of the finer points of his B-Movie resume are: Land of the Dead, Space Truckers, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and two of my personal favorite non B-Movies Blue Velvet and Jesus’ Son amongst many, many others.
Dennis passed away in his Venice Beach home earlier this morning after a year long battle with prostate cancer. He was 74. At this very moment, I’m editing a review for Super Mario Bros., and wanted to take time out and say from all of us at Internal Bleeding, Dennis, you will be missed.

If you’re a child of the 80’s then you most certainly remember Corey Haim and the countless hits he was part of. Movies like Lucas, Dream a Little Dream, License to Drive (my favorite), Blown Away and The Lost Boys are movies every teenager watched then, and should be required watching for today’s teens. Corey was one of the biggest teen heartthrobs of the 80’s along side guys like Robert Downey Jr, Judd Nelson and another famous Corey, Corey Feldman, one of his closest friends.

It’s the last day of the year 2008, and this marks the first year that we’ve been reviewing films. Well, it hasn’t been a full year – we started this current incarnation of the website on March 8th, 2008 with our first review of Larry Cohen’s “The Stuff” (note to ourselves – review more Larry Cohen films!). Anyhow, since it’s the end of the year, we figured if you really wanted to you could browse around the site and look at all the stuff we’ve covered, but if you’re the lazy type like us, this condensed view of some of our highlights and lowlights might be right up your alley. In this post you’ll find some clips and summary of our highest rated films and lowest. So… without further adieu, let’s get on with the show:

If you’ve been following this site for a while, you’ll know that one of our favorite actors on this site is New Zealand’s Peter O’Brian. He’s starred in The Stabilizer, Rambu – The Intruder, and Angel of Fury, movies we’ve coincidentally reviewed (although he’s been in others that we haven’t reviewed yet).
After a few movies, he pretty much fell off the map, and there hasn’t been very reliable information on his whereabout or what he’s been up to since his end of his film career. Well, now all that’s changed, thanks to an update from one of our readers, Jack J and his site En lejemorder ser tilbage and his friend Ian at HK and Cult Film News. It seems that Peter is living in Indonesia and working as an English teacher. Luckly Ian was able to track him down, and has started written correspondence with him. You can read more about how Peter got his start in films here and here.
Thanks to both Jack J and Ian for this exciting news!
