"True Blood" Viral: World's Greatest Pet Bloopers

Continuing their series of cheesy Shape Shifter centric viral vids, the "True Blood" team has released the latest, from Yorkie to Porky.

"Daybreakers" Trailer

I was a pretty big fan of Michael and Peter Spierig's over-the-top 2003 horror/comedy "Undead" back in the day, going as far as to import a relatively expensive Region 4 DVD long before it arrived on American shores. Yeah, sometimes I can be pretty pathetic like that. And while I do believe the film had its share of problems, the good points, in this geek's humble opinion, greatly outweighed the bad. Besides, it's not everyday you get to watch an gun-crazy Australian redneck battle a flesh-eating zombie fish. I'm just saying.

"True Blood" Reveals Shapeshifters for Season 2

Showtime's hit vampire series "True Blood" kicks off Season Two this Sunday, June 14th and with it comes promises of more supernatural killers including shape shifters, werewolves and more! Oh my! To help kick off the premiere of the second season, they have released a series of viral vids giving a taste of what's to come.

First up, a cautionary tale about shapeshifters and seeing eye dogs:

Tons Of "Blood" Clips Online

Although initial reviews aren't exactly what you'd call overwhelmingly positive and its Stateside release date is looming somewhere on the proverbial horizon, I'm still pretty pumped about "Blood: The Last Vampire." Yes, some of the action sequences seem a little stale and, yes, we've seen the "hot girl battling otherworldly creatures" scenario more times than any of us care to admit. That said, the film looks like great fun, and I'm anxious to get my grubby little mitts on a copy of it.

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (REVIEW)

After two films in the world of "Underworld", it was deemed necessary to travel back in time to tell the origin of the blood feud between Vampires and Lycans. Originally bred to be slaves to the oppressive vampires, the first Lycan/Human hybrid Lucien falls in love with Victor's daughter Sonja. Being an aristocrat, Viktor can't handle Sonja shacking up with the household help, so he sets in motion the events that lead to the centuries long feud between the two races.

True Blood Season 2 Trailer

Today HBO released the trailer for "True Blood" Season 2, their Anna Paquin starring vampire series. Last season left off on a cliff-hanger and drew tons of interest. Judging from this, Season 2 looks to be promising as well! The addition of Evan Rachel Wood as a vampire queen will certainly help matters.

"True Blood" returns for the new season on HBO on Sunday, June 14 at 9pm ET. "True Blood" Season One will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download on Tuesday, May 19. The soundtrack will also hit on May 19.

Cops Arrest Drunk, Polite Vampire

I love when I find real world, horror related gems like this.

Granted she may be confusing Vampires with Zombies, but all should be forgiven considering she's lucky she's not dead after the amount of alcohol that must have been imbibed to reach this level of discourse.

Thicker Than Water: The Vampire Diaries Part 1 (REVIEW)

I have to admit that seeing the trailer for “Thicker than Water: The Vampire Diaries Part 1” would have prevented me from watching it had I not been obligated to review it.

And just so you don’t think I’m a honk for the Platinum Dunces, um Platinum Dunes level milk curd I’ll preface the rest of my review by saying that I am actually a micro-budget independent filmmaker myself. This forces me to appreciate lower production values. It also makes it nearly impossible for me to remain objective when watching a movie like “Thicker than Water: The Vampire Diaries Part 1”.

Horror Headlines: Thursday April 2nd, 2009

Let me see if I have this straight. Twitch Film's April Fool's story was about a Special Edition of "Mimic"? Aren't April Fool's pranks supposed to be funny? Or you know, at least interesting?

IFC has picked up the rights to Laurel K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter" series for a television show. Think "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" meets "True Blood", only with worse writing. Try wrapping your head around that one for a while.

Some pics from Thomas Jane's "Dark Country", a film in which he is serving as both writer and director. The story concerns "a couple en route from Las Vegas that are forced to deal with a body out in the desert, making their honeymoon one hellish ride". Tom Jane being the nerd-friendly guy that he is, I've got high hopes for this project. Of course, it doesn't hurt that he's referring to it as a "3D Noir Supernatural Thriller". Daddy like.

In Real People News: 

Apparently bored with beating the shit out of prisoners, a County Sherriff upped the ante recently by feeding a prisoner a bologna sandwich, and then showing him a cell-phone pic of another prisoner's junk resting on the same sandwich. That seems awful elaborate to me, but I guess the job could get kind of boring after a while.

Hey there teenagers... if some old guy is nice enough to buy you beer and party at his house - creepiness aside - don't light his crotch on fire. It's just bad form and probably ensures he's not going to do it again... assuming he'll ever be able to walk again that is.

I'm sure there have been Indonesian serial killers who have released books before. Not positive, but it seems likely. A collection of pop songs on the other hand, I'm betting that's never happened before. As far as strange foreign pop music though, I'm sure it will never top this gem, but then again what could.

On this day in history: 

1459: Vlad the Impaler impales thousands of merchants and burghers of the town of Brasov, in Transylvania. Some estimate as many as 30,000 impalements, but it was probably more on the order of 2,000.

Blood: The Last Vampire Trailer

Okay, so after seeing this trailer I think I finally understand the excitement behind "Blood: The Last Vampire". It comes to you from director Chris Nahon, who I see currently has a script out for a "Skate or Die" movie, which may actually make him my personal hero.

"Blood The Last Vampire" is based on the Anime film of the same name from 2000, and the story goes like this:
