Trailer For "Paranormal Activity" Goes Online

If there is one thing I love, it's a good horror movie that frightens the crap out of my wife. Despite what you think of "House Of 1,000 Corpses" I will always love it for that fact that to this day I can just say the words "run rabbit run" and creep my better half out. I do this not because I'm a mean person, but because there are very few situations in a marriage where the guy can have the upper hand.

Trailer for promising no-budget "Patrol Men"

This movie's gotten a bit of press on very little info. From what I can piece together, it's a very low or 'zero-budget' British SF/Horror film that possibly came out this month - although what 'came out' means in this context I'm not sure. The trailer is totally disorienting in a great way. The film seems to hearken to 60's and 70's films that mixed the radical ideology of the time with genre madness.

Here's the summary from the film's FaceBook Page - scroll past for the trailer:

Rooms for Tourists (REVIEW)

A couple of months back I decided on a whim (not to mention a creeping deadline) to give one of those Redbox DVD machines a try. I was surprised at the fairly decent representation of horror titles, many of which I’d never heard of. I nearly took a bullet for the team and rented “The Devil’s Tomb”, but even the almighty tag-team of Ray Winstone, Ron Perlman and Bill Mosely can’t get me to intentionally watch a Cuba Gooding Jr movie.

"The 4th Reich" Heading Towards Production

In a time when our real life villains seem amorphous, impersonal, and complicated, many directors are turning to the Nazis as go-to, easily readable manifestations of evil. Even the horror genre is turning to Nazis as a trend villain, specifically Nazi Zombies. While this year's "Dead Snow" put the Nazi Zombies in the present day and played it for laughs, "The Fourth Reich", which enters production later this year, looks like a more straight ahead horror piece and is set in war-torn Europe during WWII. Here's the synopsis:

New Web Series "The Captive" Now Online

Web series are all the rage on the intertubes these days and more and more the quality of them is getting better. Are they going to kill cable TV? Probably not but seeing a series like “The Captive” getting picked up by The Sundance Channel is pretty impressive. On top of that it also features Michael Gladis of “Mad Men”. Not too shabby!

Diagnosis: Death (REVIEW)

Early last year, I took a chance on an independent New Zealand feature called "Eagle vs. Shark," a decidedly off-beat romantic comedy which introduced me to the cinematic brilliance of Jemaine Clement. Since then, I've blindly delved into the talented actor/songwriter's ever-growing filmography, leading me to unearth such quirky gems as "Tongan Ninja," the HBO series "Flight of the Conchords," and an endlessly amusing series of marketing clips for Outback Steakhouse.

George A. Romero's "Survival of the Dead" Trailer

Alright stop me if you’ve heard this one before, a cowboy, a fisherman and a army guy walk onto an island filled with Zombies. Ya know, just to save time let me skip right to the punch line, you’ve just lost another hour and a half of your life to a George A. Romero zombie flick. Get it? It never gets old does it, well you might change your mind after seeing the trailer for “Survival of the Dead”.

100 Best Kill Party

Austin Texas can be summed up by it's motto “Keep Austin Weird” and because of this motto it is no surprise that September 24th-October 1st “Fantastic Fest” is held in Austin. With the many film screenings and events arriving in Austin ranging from apocalyptic to science fiction, the “100 Best Kills Party” stuck out most in my mind. Did you see the skull crush brought on by NPH in the trailer from 2008?

Deadgirl (REVIEW)

If we compare the zombie craze of the 2000's to the slasher boom of the 80s I think its safe to say that we’re now in the “Jason Takes Manhattan” period. There was a time when I would have scoffed at the notion that I would ever be sick of zombie movies but now that reanimated dead have become an acceptable form of cosplay I greet new zombie films with a sigh. When every other new horror release involves brain-munching, about the only take on zombies we haven’t seen yet is a zombie buddy cop movie, or a movie about tying up zombies and having sex with them.

"Live Evil" A New Spin on Vampires

Every day people fill their blood with all kinds of awful toxins. Booze, nicotine and God knows what kind of STD’s you people have floating around your systems. All of these things combined have polluted your blood to the point where it’s almost undrinkable to your local vampires. You selfish bastards.
