Doomsday Book (REVIEW)

Doomsday Book is a South Korean anthology film from directors and co-writers Kim Ji-woon and Yim Pil-sung. Through the course of three, forty-five minute segments we are pulled through the final moments leading to possible apocalyptic events. Literally translated to English the title reads “Report on the Destruction of Mankind”. Though the subject matter may call to mind a host of grimly violent, depressive, and stomach churning cannibalistic fare (see what I did there?) the segments are nicely balanced with a healthy dose of humor and hope.

Bedevilled (REVIEW)

Rape-Revenge films are perhaps the most polarizing of genre movies. The aggressive voyeuristic nature in which most of these films marvel in both extended victimization and shockingly rendered vengeance are a distillation of some rather sticky ideological obstacles inherent in creating a narrative visually and aurally. And let’s not forget with the intent of making money. They are at once exploitative and yet not without (sometimes) greater purpose in mind. What is also fascinating about these stories is their diffusion across various levels of taste and medium.

Horror Headlines: Friday January 14th, 2011

Good news kids! The real Godzilla might be making a come back in late 2012. Word on campus is along with the American reboot that currently planned the good people at Toho are also in the works for a brand new rubber suit version. Merry Christmas honey, hope you like an hour and a half of pure misery!

Yesterday we saw "Husk" from the After Dark Originals series and today we see "The Task" and as much as it pains me to not hate two movies in a row I have to say I'm a sucker for stupid kids trapped in a building. Yes it's a blatant rip off of that crappy MTV show that use to be on but at least in this one people die. People die and there's a creepy ass clown that isn't Carson Daly! People get that reference, right?

The only two things I understood about the trailer for the South Korean film "The Housemaid" was the ridiculous amount of sex a married guy has with his maid and the AT&T ad that ran before the trailer started. From the quotes in the trailer though this will apparently be the greatest movie ever invented. Well that and AT&T really does have the best nationwide coverage around, hands down.

Tori Black is a porn star and she's got some sort of horror movie coming out called "Half Moon" where she plays a prostitute who's hard up for cash, AKA a bad prostitute. But honestly you probably clicked on the link once you saw the words porn star so you're not even reading this anymore so I could really say anything. Anyway there's new cover art for the film and I sob like a baby every time I watch "Rudy".

In Real People News: 

Everyone knows that if a lady is going to steal a mink coat the best way to do it is to shove it into her underthings. What most women don't know though is you then have to keep it there at least 4 days before it's safe to take the garment out. See this women in Minnesota only left it there for 3 days and that's why she got caught.

Not knowing you're having sex with a dead girl for a few minutes is somewhat believable. Not knowing you're having sex with a dead girl for a few hours, not so much. And if you are going to try to say you didn't know, don't freakin video tape it. I should really write a handbook for deviants.

New "Chaw" Poster, Website

It's not very often that the world is treated to a killer swine flick, so we have to take our offerings as they are presented to us. The upcoming South Korean monster movie "Chaw" is poised to supply jaded movie-goers with their flesh-eating pig fix, though I think it may be a while before it oinks its way onto American shores.
