Trailers

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.

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.

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.

As promised, the trailer for Rob Zombie's "H2" landed over at Yahoo Movies today. We'll update this post as soon as we can get our hands on an embeddable version.

UPDATED: Now with video!

Despite its spotty track record amongst horror fans, Thailand's "Art of the Devil" franchise continues its quest to assault your senses with crazy witchcraft, an insane amount of splatter, and a bottomless supply of melodrama.

I mean for serious, what do you say about a horror film called "Paintball", other than the fact that it exists? Well, that, and maybe the fact that this trailer is much better than it has any right to be.

It's unusual that low-budget movies take on post-apocalyptic themes, mainly because doing so requires more resources than they're usually privy to. This trailer for "Deadland", while perhaps a bit janky in parts, almost convinces me that I might enjoy it if I watched it.

Looks like we finally have the answer to when Mike Doughterty's ("X2") "Trick 'r Treat" will be released, and it will not be theatrically as we had all hoped. Not that that's a big surprise, considering how long it's been on the shelf I would have been shocked if they went the theatrical route.

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.

I don't usually post foreign language trailers on the site until they have subtitles, but this one caught my eye today so I wanted to bring it your way. It's for a French film titled "Mutants", by a young director named David Morlet.
