Death Frosting

This was plucked off the top of a muffin this morning, and we're still not quite sure whether it's animal, vegetable or mineral.

If you are a baker or food designer of any kind and can tell us what this is - please drop us a line thru Modern Evil Public Relations and let us know if we can really eat this.


Let's Move the Poltergeist Curse

CATEGORY: Curse, Movies, Hollywood

DIVISION: Modern Evil PR

COMMENT: Frustrated by the inflexibility of the movie industry, we at The Modern Evil Company are creating a lobby group with one focus - to move the Poltergeist Curse to the Saw series. Really, what better LEGAL way is there to get rid of Donnie Wahlberg?

To support the lobby, email - Modern Evil PR with "Let's Move the Curse" in the subject line.

The Poltergiest Curse

The Poltergeist curse is the rumor of a supposed curse attached to the Poltergeist motion picture series and its stars.

The rumor is superstition largely derived from the fact that four cast members died in a relatively short span of time (six years) between the release of the first film and the release of the third, with one dying during production of the second film. Two of them died at young ages, 12 and 22. It is not clear that these particular films are atypical in the number or nature of the deaths of their actors, and at least two of the supposed victims had serious health problems before becoming attached to the film series.

The actors who are supposed victims of the curse include:

Dominique Dunne, 22-year-old actress who played the oldest sibling Dana in the first movie, died after being choked by a jealous boyfriend in 1982. The boyfriend, John Thomas Sweeney, was later convicted and sentenced to six years in prison, though initially he only served two and a half years.

Julian Beck, 60-year-old actor who played Kane in Poltergeist II: The Other Side, died in 1985 of stomach cancer, with which he was diagnosed before he had accepted the role.

Will Sampson, 53 years old, who played Taylor the Medicine Man in Poltergeist II, died of post-operative kidney failure and pre-operative malnutrition problems in 1987.

Heather O'Rourke, actress who played Carol Anne in all three Poltergeist movies, died in 1988 at the age of 12 after what doctors initially described as an acute form of influenza but later changed to septic shock after bacterial toxins invaded her bloodstream. At the time, she had suffered acute bowel obstruction, initially diagnosed as Crohn's disease, which may have been the cause of death.


What We Just Learned from "Sweetest Day"

CATEGORY: Concocted Promotions, Lobby Groups

DIVISION: Modern Evil PR

EDITORIAL: How has this brilliant bit of sweet-tooth manipulation eluded us for so long?! Sweetest Day - this Saturday, October 18th - is a day created by a retailing/lobbying association for the sole purpose of increasing sales. And the genius of it all is that everyone goes along with it.

Well, you can see where this is going.

The Modern Evil Company officially announces "The Truly Evil Day" - [date to be announced later] - the day when everyone is encouraged to do something bad.

All of us have at least 1 rotten thing inside of us that we'd love to inflict on a deserving jerk, right? So here's the chance to do a bit of evil AND have it sanctioned.

After we co-ordinate with the major players such as Hallmark, Nestle and Anheuser-Busch, we'll let you know the exact date for the new annual celebration - Truly Evil Day.
