Trailers

I have a treat for you - just in time for lunch on the East Coast! It's the trailer and first two minutes of "Growth", a film about parasitic slugs that make you smart, strong and horny - before they kill you... or something. Here's the synopsis:

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.

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:

After being delayed for over two years Michael Dougherty’s “Trick R Treat” has finally gotten a DVD and Blu-ray release date. I for one am almost wetting myself with excitement. In honor of this momentous occasion a final trailer for the film has been released as well. From the looks of things and the countless quotes that are thrown in the film will actually live up to expectations.

The only things I caught in this red-band trailer for "House of the Devil" that weren't in the first trailer we saw some months ago are all the good press quotes, but it's worth seeing this stuff again. This movie looks awesome, a real throwback (in the best sense) to the supernatural horror that was the genre staple in the 60s and 70s until slashers took over. I know where I'll be on Halloween!

So when I first read that Adam Sandler's production company Happy Madison was making a horror movie I had some high hopes. I thought we might be getting a pretty decent little horror/comedy film that would at least be entertaining. Well unfortunately “The Short Cut” doesn’t look very funny… or scary… or good for that matter.

I think most people are in agreement that the first foray into the depths of "The Descent" resulted in a pretty kick ass and enjoyable movie. However, I don't know that anyone was particularly screaming for a sequel. Regardless, here's a trailer for it!

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!

While poking around the Fangoria website this morning, I stumbled across an article for the upcoming Chilean surrealist horror outing "Humanimal," a strange little genre picture that features absolutely no dialogue whatsoever. What's more, the film is populated with lots of actors wearing very strange, very furry costumes. I doubt I could make this stuff up if I tried. Needless to say, curiosity has settled upon me.

Here's the officials synopsis:

How this one didn’t show at the Jersey State Fair is beyond me. To me it’s a no brainer to screen something like “Lizard Boy” right next to the two headed cow tent. But anyway, the film from first time director Paul Della Pelle might just be the greatest film to ever feature a seriously CGIed lizard tail on a genetically engineered bastard son. The words “ground breaking” come to mind.
