"Backmask" is the most confusing title for a movie I've ever heard but it's actually a good old fashioned "record backwards letting out a demon" type romp. Excited? What if I was to tell you that "13 Going On 30" alum Brittany Curran has been added to the cast? Are you excited now? Well that was a test and you just failed. I hope you're happy.
Why the hell not! MTV has dropped news that they're beginning production on a TV series based on the popular "Scream" franchise. No word as of yet if Wes Craven, or anyone else from the series for that matter, will be involved with the project but word around campus is I'll make stupid comments about it for the next few weeks and then just ignore it all together. More on this story as it develops.
And here we go. "FDR: American Badass" is apparently not the next Kid rock album but a full fledged movie about our 32nd president riding around in a wheelchair trying to stop polo spreading werewolves. Serious. That's a real thing happening. The film has been picked up by Screen Media for distribution to VOD and DVD. Eventually we'll get to a point where Jimmy Carter is battling trolls. Then we'll know we've gone to far.
"Category Six" is a new found footage flick about a group of high school students who try to survive a category six tornado. Arlen Escarpeta,the guy who tried to beat it to a clothing catalog in the "Friday the 13th" remake, has been cast in the film as one of the high schoolers along side Alycia Debnam-Carey, who has a sour puss. Both are way too old to be high school students.
Ahh snap! Who's excited for some "Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings" poster action on a Thursday morning?! No one? Well F you guys cause the new poster has a cool looking guy with an ax and a head in his hand and it's snowing, so there! It's coming out on October 18th you ungrateful SOB's.
It's been a while since you've seen any good old fashioned backward record playing demon films, probably because it's really hard to play an mp3 backwards. But that didn't stop the good people behind "Backmask" which has some which has some new teaser art out that bares a striking resemblance to liquor I was convinced was made out of deer blood in college. No, it's not peach schnapps.
"Airborne" is a new thriller about a group of people who make it on the last flight to leave an airport before the the entire airport is shut down only to have their flight overrun by a deadly killer virus. The first trailer for the flick has hit the nets and while it looks alright I really wish they had used that "Ironic" song by Alanis Morissette. because that would have been fitting, no?
There's been more excitement around "Stake Land" than you find can shake a stick at and the new clip that's available for peepin is just going to make it worse. Or better, however you want to look at it. For those of you not familiar with the film it focuses on a group of individuals fighting to survive in a vampire infested country. Are you bursting at the seams with excitement? Apologize to your seams for me.
In Real People News:
This is what happens when you piss off freedom. A pair of bald eagles in Alaska have taken to dive bombing customers in a post office parking lot presumably because the patrons don't love freedom enough. I know it's illegal to kill bald eagles but what about punching them in the face? I think I just found a loop hole.
An elderly Colorado woman is under arrest after she tried to hold up a bank by threatening to give a teller AIDS if he didn't hand over the cash. She displayed no weapons though so I assume she planned on giving it to him the old fashion way... with some sweet sweet love making. Which might be even grosser than any disease because she's old and you can probably see through her skin.
