"Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil" Trailer Rocks

Here's the trailer for a great looking new horror comedy "Tucker & Dale Vs Evil". It looks like a great twist on the whole "deranged redneck" subgenre. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Zorg and Andy (REVIEW)

Calculated, intentional B-movies specifically designed for cult appeal are almost always a hit and miss affair. Most of the filmmakers who possess aspirations for camp stardom generally aren't well-versed in the art of comedy, a crucial element needed to assure that these films operate efficiently. Making people laugh is both a science and an art form, and from what I can tell, it's a rather difficult mission to accomplish if you don't know what you're doing. An evening spent with R.W.

Bloody Promo Clip From "Drag Me To Hell"

Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell" is a film that I've sort of soured on as time goes on. I gave it a pretty high score back when it was out theatrically, but the more I think about it the more I think it was a highly overrated film that benefitted tremendously from having Sam Raimi's name attached to it. Pretty fun? Yes. Amazing? Hardly.

"Transylmania" Red Band Trailer

I really shouldn't want to see "Transylmania". By all accounts it looks pretty cheesy, and not so good, and yet these trailers have given me some kind of hope that it will be entertaining. This one, the now customary "Red-Band" trailer, has some extra NSFW goodness, so cubicle-dwellers beware.

Werewolf's Guide to Life

Zombies have been getting their full share of attention lately and now with the release of “The Wolf Man” looming, werefolk are going to get their fair shake too. In the soon to be released “The Werewolf’s Guide to Life,” Ritch Duncan & Bob Powers describe ways for the recently bitten lycanthrope to cope with their new found way of life. The manual provides guidance on: what to do if you have attacked someone, how to build a restraint room, dating and sex advice, and how to avoid detection.

"Transylmania", It's A Vampire Comedy!

A lot of times when I’m looking for a movie at the local video shop I see these straight to video comedies about a college at sea or some other ridiculous idea. The main focus of these seem to be a bunch of college kids getting drunk and screwing. They usually sound like a fun time to me and if I could only find a reasonable excuse to tell my wife as to why I brought something like that home I’d probably rent them.

Well the people behind “Transylmania” have finally given me an excuse. Take the same theme and toss in a few vampires. Thanks guys!

Lesbian Vampire Killers (REVIEW)

If and when you decide to properly investigate British filmmaker Phil Claydon's cheeky 2009 horror/comedy "Lesbian Vampire Killers," you may find it rather difficult to separate this extremely silly "best buddies" picture from the like-minded genre-bending classic, "Shaun of the Dead." I'm sure the comparison has been made countless times before by more talented, articulate critics, but, to be fair, it's really not that hard to uncover the mountain of similarities between them. Does this glaring sameness derail this otherwise enjoyable cinematic experience?

Baghead (REVIEW)

One of the biggest complaints against slasher movies is that the characters are dull and there’s so little effort put into making us care about them that when they finally do meet the wrong end of a machete it’s never really upsetting. The flip side of this equation is the quirky indie relationship movie where the characters and their interactions are the film’s raison d’etre, which critics contend results in a plotless bore of endlessly talking heads.
