Trailers

So here’s a good story. A guy goes out and buys a sex doll. He takes it home and blows it up and then enjoys a romantic evening with it. Next day while this guys off to work the sex doll comes to life, goes out into the world and finds love and a job at a video store. Are you getting excited yet? Sicko.

It’s been a while since Martin Scorsese has scared the shit out of us. “Cape Fear” came out over 15 years ago but it looks like he has done it again with “Shutter Island”. Based on Dennis Lehane's novel, the thriller staring Leonardo DiCaprio had it’s trailer hit the web yesterday and from the looks of things it’s going to be pretty kick ass.

Right after filming on “Hellboy 2” finished, Ron Perlman headed of to the set of “I Sell The Dead”. This past weekend I got a chance to see the trailer for “I Sell The Dead” and hear writer/director Glenn McQuaid give some background on the film. According to McQuaid, Perlman spent the weeks sleeping on the floor using a sound blanket as a bed, until they needed the blanket that is. From the looks of things, Perlman’s suffering was well forth it

If you listen to the podcast, you should know that I've been salivating over "The Final Destination" (formerly "Final Destination 4/3D/Death Trip/etc."), hailing it as the perfect horror film for 3D. Now that the theaterical trailer has dropped, I can't say that I've changed my mind.

In space, no one can hear you ripping off “Alien”. Or at least that’s my initial thought after seeing the trailer for “Pandorum” this past weekend in front of "Drag Me To Hell". The film, which stars Dennis Quiad and Ben Foster as two astronauts who awaken aboard an abandon spaceship is set to open on September 4th.

“Ein, Zwei, Die!” It’s a pretty awesome tag line even if it is a bit confusing. Wouldn’t that translate into “one, two, the”? Anyway I haven't taken German class in close to fifteen years so I’m going to ignore that. One thing I am not confused about is that “Dead Snow” looks awesome and after watching the US trailer below you’ll have no choice but to agree with me.

Generally speaking, I'm an equal opportunity employer when it comes investigating creepy supernatural thrillers, even if said pelicula contains the dreaded "long haired girl" popping in and out of the shadows. However, in the past, Thai horror films haven't exactly gone out of their way to impress me. I don't know if something gets lost in translation or if there's too much culture clash getting in the way of the terror -- either way, my success rate with their disjointed brand of Asian horror isn't very good.

These days you can’t spit in a comic book store without hitting a graphic novel that’s being made into a movie. Trust me, I tried, and I’m still waiting for the Bloody Good Horror accounts payable department to reimburse me for the bill.

If you've been to the movies any time in the last two months, you've most likely seen the trailer for the upcoming animated feature "9". Produced by Tim Burton and Directed by Shane Acker, the flick's got a distinct flavor all its own and looks like a nice little dark alternative to all of Pixar's happy bug-eyed onslaughts.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good old fashion haunted house movie. The kind where a bunch of people get locked in a house for the night and everybody ends up dead. That's where "Dark Horse" comes in.
