10:48 - Redn1ght I know. But it was pretty recent and was similar to that to Babadook premise. Darth
10:37 - Darth Satanious I get what you mean, but since I didnt like Insidious at all I had to fight the comparison. :P The protect your family from evil goes way older than Insidious though. Can't attribute a single original thing to that film.
10:33 - Redn1ght Oh cool. But meant more on the set up. Some monster is after your kid, what do you do?
10:24 - Darth Satanious Man, I didn't like Insidious at all, The plot of Babadook is more about depression and the relationship of a mother and problematic son after dealing with tragedy, plastered with something obscure (???)
10:17 - Redn1ght Darth, Babadook seems kinda like Incidious (plot wise.) But the trailer made it a bit freaky. Might check it out sometime.
10:14 - Darth Satanious Seems like someone farted in the Megadeth tour bus, Broderick quit too. lol
10:11 - Darth Satanious Moon and Snowpiercer are very good films. Horror: The Babadook, Mama, Slither, Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth, Tremors, The Conjuring, Evil Dead, Europa Report (not horror but scify in Space), American Horror Story (series)...
Former Dio band members Rudy Sarzo (bass), Simon Wright (drums), Craig Goldy (guitar) and Scott Warren (keyboards) will join forces with singers Tim "Ripper" Owens (Yngwie Malmsteen, Judas Priest, Iced Earth) and Toby Jepson (Little Angels, Gun) to play a number of shows in Europe under the moniker Dio Disciples.
Ronnie James Dio's widow and manager Wendy recently said the following about this project: "There will never be another Ronnie, but we want to keep his music alive and hope you will support the band and become one of the Dio Disciples."
North American tour plans will be announced later.

It is a cash grab, probably, but at least they had something to do with Dio's success and helped him on his musical journey, unlike he who shall not be named, but who's first name is the same as the name of the dumbest character on Friends.
I'd definitely be interested in seeing this, the Dio band with Ripper covering Dio songs sounds like it could be awesome. Im a bit perplexed at Toby Jepson's inclusion in this though... I havent heard anything from him since the Little Angels were popular here in the early-mid 90's. lol
