Posters: "Barn of the Naked Dead" is a better poster than actual movie

Hi Everybody! Your Connoisseur of Crap is back, with a delectable gem from the era of polyester jumpsuits & chest medallions. Of course, the horror flavor of that decade was chock full of exploitation and women empowerment themes - it's just that most of them weren't that good, and "Barn of the Naked Dead" was no exception.

Poster: Season 2 of 'The Walking Dead'

AMC revealed to the world the new poster for The Walking Dead Season 2 today. It keeps the color scheme & shot perspective from the first season poster. Both seasons had a 3rd person, over the shoulder perspective of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln); although while in Season One, it had him riding calmly, opposite the outgoing, chaotic (and now dead) traffic. Here, we see him running towards a mysterious farmhouse, gun drawn. Does it imply the build up of panic? Or convey the vast emptiness that is now their world?

Gameplay Footage of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record

Yes, your Ghoul of Gaming has another tidbit for you! If you played Dead Rising 2, you'll know it's a nifty zombie survival game; a completely open world full of different choices and endings. While I didn't think it was as good as the first one, I did enjoy it. Hell, how can you NOT enjoy making custom weapons like the Broom Katana, Bucket 'O Drills, Beer Hat, & the Super BFG, to name a few. The mass slaughtering of literally THOUSANDS of zombies is so satisfying, and never gets old. Hell, that could be the entire game, and I would be perfectly content with it.

Vampire Mob - A Web TV Series

I love indie movies and indie TV. Yes, like anything, there's a huge amount of stinkers, but it's not unusual to find a great story. I consider indie productions to be a proverbial lifeboat in the sea of crap that is big budget, soul less remakes, reboots and re-imaginings. The best part, however, is when you stumble on something that's just a gem, like I did with Vampire Mob. Like most productions of this nature, the biggest obstacle is getting your project noticed - an absolute travesty, if you ask me.

Dead Hooker in a Trunk - now on VOD!

You may have heard of a little indie production called 'Dead Hooker in a Trunk", the first of many films by the lovely ladies of
Twisted Twins Productions. This modern dark comedy, loaded with gory goodness has both its share of controversy and great reviews. I love the grindhouse style, and I was amazed this film lived up to the hype.

Motorhead gives new song "Outlaw" to TROMA for "Mr. Bricks"

Nothing is more metal than Lemmy Kilmister, and nothing says pure kick ass than Motorhead. Say what you will about Lemmy, but here's a man that can honestly say fame never changed him, he never forgot his beginnings, and he's always offered his support for things he loves, asking for nothing in return...well, maybe some Jack Daniels. But that's it!!

The Walking Dead Season 1 on Sale!

Like many of you, I enjoyed the hell out of AMC's new series "The Walking Dead" last season. I was extremely surprised they managed a gritty, gory tale of the zombie apocalypse that was paired with great acting and characters with personality. Most can agree that this is also a series that isn't just for die hard zombie or horror fans - the true drama is about human survival during the end of the known world, and the stories of the survivors can appeal to almost anyone.

Trailers: Hellraiser Revalations

Hi kids!! Your Connoisseur of Crap is here with something "special"... and I mean special of the window licking variety! Because it takes a special kind of movie to get a Bloody Good Horror Connoisseur of Crap Seal of Approval before it's even released.
