Posters: "Hypothermia" does retro right

Hard to argue against a poster design like that (click to enhance). "Hypothermia" comes out on DVD October 2nd.

“Ray Pelletier (Michael Rooker; “The Walking Dead,” Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Slither) is looking forward to a quiet weekend of ice fishing with his family at the same peaceful lake they’ve been visiting for years. Unfortunately for the Pelletiers, the obnoxious big-city father-son duo of Steve and Stevie Cote has picked the same weekend to spend at the remote frozen spot.

The Host (Gwoemul) (REVIEW)

Some months ago on the podcast when we reviewed Chan-wook Park's "Thirst," we remarked that South Korean filmmakers have a knack for taking common horror film concepts and spinning them in a way that's just different enough to make them stand out. In this tradition, 2006's "The Host," directed by Bong Joon-ho, manages to take the common monster movie framework, and craft it into a family-focused drama with hints of comedy and satire. Oh, and it also features a gigantic catfish monster with legs and a prehensile tail.

Razortooth (REVIEW)

For most people, the first week of August signifies little more than the fact that summer is nearly over. However, for many nerds and TV lovers, it's Shark Week, a week where we bow our heads in reverence to the finned terrors of the sea. What began as a convenient way for the Discovery Channel to cluster it's shark specials in the late 80's has blossomed into a cult phenomena that extends far beyond cable.

Alligator (REVIEW)

If a grouchy father flushes a baby alligator down the toilet in Chicago will the residents of Tarzana, California pay the price for it 15 years later? This is not the question posed by Lewis Teague’s 1980 creature feature “Alligator” but it is one that will float into the mind of most viewers. Other reasonable viewer inquiries may center on the crocodilian capacity for vengeance and whether or not John Sayles missed his true calling as a monster movie scribe.

Eli Roth's Big Budget Monster Mash

Eli Roth, the guy that genre fans love to hate and hate to love, spoke with MTV recently and told them all about his ambitious plans when it comes to his career. They include a big-budget sci-fi monster movie, as well as a twist that will no doubt please fans of "Grindhouse".

“I don’t want to say what [the monster is] yet,” Roth teases to MTV. “Once it gets set up, I will let everyone know. It is not aliens or robots or a virus - it’s a little more grounded. But when people hear it they are going to be like ‘That is going to be insane!’.”
