Let Me In (REVIEW)

Let Me In's Owen and Abby

Last year, we at Bloody Good Horror polled our reviewers to come up with a list of the best horror films of the last decade.

Netherbeast Incorporated (REVIEW)

With films like "Machete" hitting it big this summer, the term 'ensemble cast' has been thrown around quite a bit. An assemblage of a few well-known an often hilariously mismatched actors can sell just about any premise. In the case of "Netherbeast Incorporated," it may be a stretch to say that it features an ensemble cast in the most traditional sense, but without the hodge-podge of established comedic actors and candidates for the "Where are they now?" list, I doubt that many people would bother giving this office comedy with an undead twist a chance.

Darkness: The Vampire Version (REVIEW)

I love guerrilla filmmaking. It is the only way to bring unfettered ideas to the screen with a high degree of faithfulness to the filmmaker’s original vision. Equally true is that it is the easiest way to make an unintentionally bad movie by having eyes bigger than your wallet. That said, most of the time if someone goes for broke with their vision and refuses to compromise they end up with a rusty little masterpiece as goofy as it is earnest. In the late 80’s/early nineties several now notable no budget horror pics emerged from a fledgling DIY underground.

Snapshot: "Daybreakers" (2010)

In this snapshot from The Spierig Bro's "Daybreakers" (2010), vampire hunter Willem Dafoe sets his sights on a bloodsucker played by Ethan Hawke. In the future, as the human race is about to go extinct, the world's most influential vampires seek a blood substitute to keep their kind alive. Meanwhile, the last remnants of the human race are about to start fighting back. For more from the Spierig brothers, check out their strange take on the vampire mythos, "Undead" (2003). "Daybreakers" will hit US theaters on January 8th, 2010.

Thirst (REVIEW)

For whatever reason, we seem to be living in the age of vampire love. It seems you couldn’t walk into a cinema or turn on a TV this year without seeing a person conflicted about their desire to bang an animated blood-drinking revenant.

New Trailer for "Suck"

Did "Twilight" and its mopey tween vampires not quite get your blood pumping? Need some more cred when it comes to your fangs and creatures of the night? Then take a look at the new trailer for "Suck", a vampire spoof.

In the film, Malcolm McDowell (“Lost,” A Clockwork Orange, etc.) plays Eddie Van Helsing, a modern day version of Bram Stoker’s infamous Dracula hunter, who is trying to track down vampire rock band The Winners. Kinda reminds me of a certain Aaliyah-starring flick.

"Vampire Party" Trailer

In lieu of the "A Nightmare on Elm St." trailer, finding something blog worthy is difficult, so I give you something light, fluffy, and French. The trailer for "Vampire Party" while entirely in French, gives you a good idea of the level of ridiculousness that will permeate this film. It has a schlocky Vincent Price horror comedy feel that I love.

But truthfully, it doesn't do it any justice. For a better clip, Check this out:

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?
