Grace (REVIEW)

With rumors spreading of two men fainting at Sundance and women dressed as nurses walking around horror conventions cradling creepy baby dolls, "Grace", Paul Solet's first full-length feature as a writer and director, has been getting excellent word of mouth. Even Grace's rating on imdb is unusually high for an independent horror film, coming in currently at an 8.5.

"Legend of the Bog" (Bog Bodies) Trailer

While you were sleeping last week, the film formerly known as "Bog Bodies" received a new name, DVD cover, and a potential release date. Now known as "Legend of the Bog," this film looks to be tentatively slated for release on DVD this June care of Lionsgate. Judging by the poster art, it looks like this film is being pushed as a vehicle for Vinnie Jones ("Midnight Meat Train," "X-Men 3"), who plays a vagabond hunter that's trying to do away with a reanimated bog body aka mummified corpse turned bad guy from Xena: Warrior Princess.

Autopsy (REVIEW)

A group of twenty-somethings party it up in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Heading home for the night they happen across a man in a hospital robe in the middle of the road. Swerving to avoid him they careen off the road and slam headfirst into a tree. Shaken and banged up, the group of friends mill about aimlessly as they ponder what to do.

Shuttle (REVIEW)

"Shuttle" starts out simply enough. Mel and Jules, two 20-something girls fresh off of a late-night flight home from their Mexican vacation, get stranded at the airport looking for their lost luggage. While there they run in to Seth and Matt, a lady's man and a sweetheart respectively, both of whom were on the same plane. As the girls try to hail a bus home, Seth schemes and convinces Matt to forgo their own ride home in favor of following the girls.

Bad Biology (REVIEW)

Although it may come as a shocking surprise to those spoiled individuals born under the sign of the digital versatile disc, filmed entertainment was a lot harder to come by when yours truly was warming a seat in the American public education system. Instead of Internet bootlegs and overseas Region-Free DVDs, we had second and third-generation VHS recordings distributed by several great mail-order companies and hundreds of unique individuals at flea markets all across the nation.

"Skeleton Crew" Trailer Makes Me Laugh

Haha... I'm not saying I would actually watch this film, I'm just saying I was incredibly amused by the trailer. And hell, I'm sure there are some of you out there willing to brave this kind of low budget stuff. For what it appears to have been shot on, it's definitely an impressive production.

Although I'm hearing British accents here, the internet tells me this is actually a Finnish horror film, something we've been seeing an awful lot of lately. "Skeleton Crew" will hit DVD in the States July 21st, courtesy of Lightning Media.

"Straw Man" Trailer, Isolation Horror

I was reading about this project last week and was realy intrigued, but decided to wait for a trailer before I talked about it on the site. Well, one popped up this weekend so here we go.

It's a UK Indie film, that essentially looks like what "Castaway" might have been like if it were a horror film. Here's the official synopsis:

Directed by Andrew Barker, STRAW MAN follows the story of The Lone Man (Simpson), who attempts to fight his own madness by keeping himself company in an empty world by surrounding himself with handcrafted people made of straw.

Triloquist (REVIEW)

While they've never quite made it into the upper tier of horror movie monsters, evil dolls have been a presence in midnight movies for almost as long as genre-staple baddies like vampires and werewolves. They've appeared in undisputed genre classics (“Poltergeist”, “Magic”), sustained a few major franchises (“Child's Play”, “Saw”), and, maybe the biggest sign you've made it in the horror genre, inspired loads of low-budget schlock (“Waxwork”, “Demonic Toys”).
