Trailers: "West of Memphis" exists... Debuts at Sundance

Not sure what there's left to uncover about the West Memphis Three story after a trilogy of award winning "Paradise Lost" documentaries, but one of Peter Jackson's myriad of producing projects has apparently been a new documentary on the true crime case just called "West of Memphis". It debuts at Sundance next week and they've released this trailer to promote its appearance at the festival.

Game Trailers: James Gunn makes the James Gunn-iest video game of all time

I will make three predictions about this game. 1: Lloyd Kaufman makes a cameo. 2: A poop geyser will somehow be involved. 3: I will play it.

"Paranormal Activity: The Chronology" gives us the thing approximately no one asked for

"Now, from the producers of those films you mostly enjoy because they're short and there's nothing else to watch on Halloween, comes the thing no one asked for... all three films in the series, edited together in chronological order!" Even as a "Paranormal Activity" fan, I can't imagine who would want to see all three films cut together, "never before seen footage" or not. You'll see me at a three day long "Lord of the Rings" marathon before you see me watching this. It's being used as a promotional tool for the series release on "Bluray" and Digital Download.

Snapshot: "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter"

I'd be more excited about this if I didn't think it was going to further destroy our children's grasp on actual history. Remember that time Eli Roth killed Hitler? That was awesome.

Poster: "John Dies at the End" debuts this month

"John Dies at the End", the latest from "Phantasm" and "Bubba Ho-Tep" director Don Coscarelli, debuts at Sundance at the end of this month. Bible Belter... I see what you did there...

Business cat says Happy Friday the 13th

Did you know that there are three Friday the 13th's in 2012? To celebrate, LIFE Magazine has posted a photo gallery from the 40's featuring a bunch of old white guys celebrating Friday the 13th with an "anti-superstition party". Not sure which superstition involves not inviting women or minorities, but apparently they weren't taking any chances... (also, Business Cat)

Trailer: "Who's Going To Stop Jack Frost" thinks it's slick...

"Who's Going to Stop Jack Frost" is cute in thinking I won't notice their testimonial quotes don't come with the names of anyone who actually said those things... (this just in, reading Bloody Good Horror is both "sexy and cool!") That said, the trailer looks slick for an Indie. I love what small filmmakers are doing with the hand-held HD-DSLR cameras these days. To me this is the next wave for the micro-budget film producer. Check it out and make up your own hyperbolic quotes in the comments...

The Monster Channel rings in Friday the 13th with shot on VHS horror

I wrote a profile on "The Monster Channel" for Issue 32 of Horror Hound Magazine. Long story short, they're eschewing the cable model by combining the interactivity of the internet with public domain and indie horror films for what they hope is a totally new viewing experience (and if they're lucky, business model). What I saw at the time was a little janky but you could tell there's a lot of heart behind it.

Games: "Amy", survival horror at it's best or worst?

"Amy" hit XBOX Live yesterday. From what I've seen, it's an entire game built around an escort mission where you have to protect a little girl. Mixing stealth with limited, "realistic" combat, all wrapped in a survival horror game's clothing. At only 800 points it might be worth it? On the other hand, I can't think of one time ever when I enjoyed an escort mission, or little children in a game... so, there's that.
