With the exception of “Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI,” the horror paintball market is virtually untapped. Leave it to those kooky Spaniards to pick up the ball and run with it.

“Paintball” is about a group of young, urban workaholics who are dropped in the middle of the woods for a weekend of action-packed fun. Unfortunately, someone didn’t read the memo about not using live ammo and ends up spoiling the weekend for everyone.

Watch it here!

That's the trailer for "Wreckage of My Past," the forthcoming documentary about the life, times and experiences of Ozzy Osbourne. Looks interesting, though I can't help but feel from the way it's presented that it likely lionizes Ozzy quite a bit. It's being produced by Sharon and Jack Osbourne, so I suppose I should've expected as much. Even so, it might be a worthwhile viewing, as Ozzy has certainly lived an interesting life.

Do you like the film franchise "Psycho?" Do you like 90 minute documentaries with over 3 hours of bonus features? Are you looking for a snappy way to celebrate the movie's 50th anniversary?

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.

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.

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.

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" 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!

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:

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.
