Trailers

Coming April 7th from Magnolia Home Entertainment, the thriller "Shuttle", starring "Madmen's" Peyton List. Here's the synopsis:

When two friends return home from a girls' weekend vacation in Mexico, they find themselves stranded at the airport. Rain-drenched and eager to get home, they board an airport shuttle for what should be a short trip. However once their feet cross the threshold of the shuttle, the night rapidly descends into darkness and they no longer worry about just getting home - but getting home in one piece.

The Behemoth is an indie gaming studio that's very close to my heart. I recently beat "Castle Crashers" for the 3rd time this past weekend (gotta unlock the characters!) and I've been awaiting their announcement about their as yet untitled 3rd game with baited breath. With both a successful Contra-esque shooter (Alien Hominid) and an arcadey hack-and-slash adventure game (Castle Crashers) under their belts I had my guesses, but boy was I ever far off.

Were I to stumble upon this movie, "The Devil's Tomb" on the scifi channel on a Saturday afternoon, I'm sure it would be a pretty entertaining time. Hell, even I am not above the pleasures of gratuitous gunfights set to rap/metal. The cast of this movie is absolutely unreal though, especially considering the "shot on video" look of the whole thing. Take a gander:

Cuba Gooding Jr. ... Mack
Ray Winstone ... Blakely
Ron Perlman ... Wesley
Taryn Manning ... Doc
Henry Rollins ... Fulton
Valerie Cruz ... Elissa
Bill Moseley ... Prof. Duncan

Kevin Tenney has been busy lately. First of all, he's been producing a remake of his 80's classic "Night of the Demons", which is actually looking like it will get some type of theatrical release.

Apparently he's also been working on a zombie film called "Brain Dead", and the news today is that it will be getting a limited theatrical release in just a few short weeks. March 30th, 2009 to be exact. Synopsis and trailer below:

This is really the kind of thing for Mark and his obsession with professional wrestling, but since I know there's no way he's up this early, I figured I'd take it on myself. (I kid because I love)

This is an Indie feature called "Parts Unknown", and between the trailer and the synopsis, there shouldn't be a whole lot of selling I need to do. So, here's what you require:

We've talked about this once or twice in passing, but I figured I'd put something more official here. "Anvil: the Story of Anvil," has a new trailer released that actually raises my expectation for the documentary just a little. My overarching concern remains that there simply isn't much there. Ninety-five percent of metal fans respond with a confused look when the name Anvil is mentioned, so the documentary is going to have to excel on its merit.

Here's the trailer for Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell", his supernatural film starring Allison Lohman which sees a wide release May 29th of this year.

Here's the plot from IMDB:

A loan officer ordered to evict an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse, who turns her life into a living hell. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.

Let's face it... having a parent that excels at a certain field doesn't automatically mean that you're going to. If that were true, I'd be the most kick-ass insurance salesmen in South Florida.

With Jennifer Lynch, daughter of wildman David Lynch, the jury still seems to be out. Her previous directing credits include the 3.9 rated on IMDB "Boxing Helena" in 1993, one episode of "Joe Bob's Drive-in Theater" (!!!) in 1995, and this film, "Surveillance".

I'm a little late to the game on this Indie film, but what I'm seeing in this trailer makes it look promising. Of course, it appears as if it sat on a shelf for the entirety of 2008, with no DVD release date set yet for 2009, so who knows what's going on with the distribution. It has been playing the festival circuit, and from what I can see has gotten some positive response. Here's the synopsis:

Okay, so after seeing this trailer I think I finally understand the excitement behind "Blood: The Last Vampire". It comes to you from director Chris Nahon, who I see currently has a script out for a "Skate or Die" movie, which may actually make him my personal hero.

"Blood The Last Vampire" is based on the Anime film of the same name from 2000, and the story goes like this:
