True Blood Season 2 Trailer

Today HBO released the trailer for "True Blood" Season 2, their Anna Paquin starring vampire series. Last season left off on a cliff-hanger and drew tons of interest. Judging from this, Season 2 looks to be promising as well! The addition of Evan Rachel Wood as a vampire queen will certainly help matters.

"True Blood" returns for the new season on HBO on Sunday, June 14 at 9pm ET. "True Blood" Season One will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download on Tuesday, May 19. The soundtrack will also hit on May 19.

"Gamer" Kind of Turns me On

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not really an action movie guy. Yes, I loved "Star Trek" and "The Dark Night," but I treat most action flicks with the same indifference that I would a romantic comedy staring Dane Cook. The real standouts in the genre to me over the years have been the "Con Air"s of the bunch, who embraced the ridiculousness of the genre and exceeded everyone's standards for entertaining hyperbole. I have a feeling that the upcoming film "Gamer" might provide just the sort of action experience that I've been looking for.

"Transformers" Videogame Trailer is Deceptive

So my last post about liking "Transformers" was expectedly met with jeers from readers, which I expected, but I saw this today and thought I would invite more harassment.

"Necromentia" Trailer Creeps Me Out

Here's a tip to horror filmmakers out there, if you want me to post about your film, find a way to incorporate a "pig person" somehow. Sure it's been done by "SAW", but for the life of me I can't help but be creeped out whenever I see a person wearing a pig's head. It's just... NOT RIGHT.

Anyways, this is the trailer for "Necromentia", a truly bizarre looking film that's about to debut at the Cannes Film Festival. It's directed by Pearry Reginald Teo, and the synopsis looks like this:

"District 9" Trailer, Feaux Alien Doc

"District 9" is a mockumentary set in a fictional South Africa which has been filled with Alien refugees... literally. The film is a not so subtle riff on racism and xenophobia, but with a strange sci-fi bent.

This is a "Peter Jackson Presents" production, helmed by South African director Neill Blomkamp, whose previous visual effects credits include "3000 Miles to Graceland", as well as the TV shows "Dark Angel" and "Smallville". No word on how wide the release will be, but IMDB has it pegged for August 14th, 2009. Looks pretty mindblowing to me!

"Hissss" Trailer

This trailer, for Jennifer Lynch's "Hissss", popped up online the other day and then disappeared just as quickly when the studio started sending out cease and desist orders. Nothing like when a studio is confused by the concept of "free promotion".

Anyways, either they've approved the trailer now, or these fellas over at Trailer Addict have themselves a hot copy. Either way, I'm bringing it to you today. The basic plot goes something like this:

"Transformers 2" Trailer

For those who may be new to the site, we tend to take a bit less stringent approach to content when it comes to our blogs. Really, anything pop culture related is up for grabs, although we obviously tend to make sure the focus is normally on horror.

"Nightmare Detective 2" Trailer

I case you weren't privy to such information, I am what you might call a Shinya Tsukamoto fan-boy. I've yet to encounter one of the legendary director's productions that I haven't been completely enthralled with.

Horror Re-Education: "Maniac"

As part of my Horror Re-Education, or my attempt to go back and catch some of the films that I've missed throughout my tenure as a purveyor of horror, this week I checked out 1980's "Maniac". Whooboy.

A schizoid serial killer randomly stalks and kills various young women in New York, which he sees as revenge for the mistreatment he got while being raised by his own abusive mother.

Japanese Girls + Bikinis + Swords = Sweet

I remember reporting on the development of this film a while back, called "Oneechanbara Vortex". The movie is based on a Japanese videogame property that was originally for the PS2, and eventually ported over to the XBOX360 and the Wii. I'm not sure if it was ever released in the US, but some of our readers may be able to help me out with that one.

I had some trouble finding the film's synopsis, but I would assume it follows the game closely, since you can't very well improve on perfection like this:
