The Next Round Of Toy Movies

With the success of the "Transformers" films and the upcoming "G.I. Joe" movie it was only a matter of time before the rest of our childhood toys get turned into major motion pictures. Well the good people over at Atom Films have beat the Hollywood big wigs to the punch this time. David Cronenberg directing a Cabbage Patch Kids movie? Peter Jackson takes on The Smurfs? Sure why the hell not.

Trailer For New Slasher Film “Frayed”

“Frayed” isn’t exactly breaking any new ground in the world of slasher films but that may not necessarily be a bad thing. With all the remakes kicking around lately I think we could all use a good old fashion nut
job killing a bunch of kids after they screw type film. I know I could. So “Frayed” might be the answer to all of our prayers and we now have a trailer for the flick that you can view below.

Festival Hit “Treevenge” Now Available Online

Jason Eisener’s “Treevenge” has been getting some serious attention since it showed up on the scene back in 08. Along the way it’s picked up awards at the New York City Horror Film Fest, Toronto After Dark Festival, San Francisco Independent Film Festival and a bunch of other well known festivals. Well now “Treevenge” is available online for all to enjoy. This 16 minute film shows what happens when your Christmas trees get fed up and decides to fight back. It’s Christmas in July people!

“The Human Centipede”, FML

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more f’ed up comes along sometime like “The Human Centipede”. Written and directed by Dutch filmmaker Tom Six the film will be making it’s debut in August at the Film4 Frightfest in London.

Eureka 3.9: "Welcome Back, Carter"

“Eureka” took a few months off from the Syfy channel last year but a whole hell of a lot of crap happened before it did. Henry became mayor, Allison discovered she’s preggers by her dead ex-husband, Eve Thorne flew the coup and probably most importantly Jack Carter got fired. So little was made of this that I was pretty sure that “Eureka” had actually been canceled, so I was happy to see that it’s back with a vengeance every Friday night now.

For Some Reason "Harper's Island" Is Coming To DVD

So I might be one of the fifteen people that actually watched “Harper’s Island” on CBS but nonetheless they have decided to put the entire mini-series out on DVD. Truth be told I only made it through about four weeks and didn’t even realize they had finished off the show until a couple weeks ago when I saw my DVR recording something on a Saturday night.

New Full Length "District 9" Trailer

With the Peter Jackson produced film “District 9” hitting theaters in a little over a month we’re officially knee deep in the media bonanza. Now we’ve got our hands on the latest trailer for the alien invasion flick and unlike the version we saw a couple months back this one gives the impression that our new friends don’t take too kindly to us humans locking them up. In fact from the looks of things they get mighty pissed.

First Annual Drunken Zombie Film Festival

After a screening of “It’s My Party And I’ll Die If I Want To” and “Zombie Apocalypse” last year the good people over at Drunken Zombie decided to go balls out and put on a full film festival this year. They’re currently accepting entries from independent horror filmmakers for the “First Annual Drunken Zombie Film Festival” which will take place on November 6-8 at the Peoria Theater in Peoria, IL.

Haunted Houses Are Fun Again In "The Grave Review"

Winner for Best Picture at the 2009 Minneapolis 48 Hour Film Project “The Grave Review” shows what extent ghosts will go to in order to get a good rating on their haunted houses. The short film which I can only assume is somewhat inspired by John Cusack’s character in the movie “1408” turns out to be pretty funny and plays off of some of the same criticisms we’ve had of movies like “The Unborn” and “The Haunting In Connecticut”

Red Band Trailer For "The Collector"

From Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the same guys that are responsible for the “Feast” trilogy and “Saw IV-VI“ comes “The Collector”. Dunstan is also a first time director with this one but from the sounds of things they didn’t really think too far outside the box.

Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
