Trailer: Nerds Go Crazy In "The Wild Hunt"

If you guys haven't seen the LARP documentary "Darkon", you should. It's a hoot watching these guys run around the woods playing with fake swords and pretending to be medieval. Good times are had by all.

"The Wild Hunt" on the other hand doesn't look so funny to me. It's a film based around the same idea of people playing dress up but the addition of rape makes the "haha" run out the door. Currently playing at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, you can check out the trailer for "The Wild Hunt" below.

Trailer: "Coffin Rock", A True Love Story

Call me a softy but I love an old fashion love story. Couple moves to small town, wife gets drunk and screws the local creepy boy, creepy boy stalks wife and tries to destroy her life. Makes me miss high school.

Such is the story of “Coffin Rock”, the new suspense film from one half of the production team that brought you “Wolf Creek”. You can check out the trailer below and watch the film starting today on IFC Festival Direct. Just in time for Valentines day!

Trailer: "Death Metal: Are We Watching You Die?"

I'm a sucker for any sort of documentary having to do with metal. I'll watch just about any crap if you put the world "Metal" in the title. Bonus points if you can also get some black metal guys in corpse paint in there for fun. I eat that crap up.

Trailer: Animated Zombie Flick "A.D."

Do you like zombie movies? Sure we all do. But what about a zombie cartoon? Oh crap you just got a semi didn't you! Well "A.D." is just that my friends. Directed by Ben Hibon who brought you the animated film "Codehunters" and produced by Bernie Goldmann who gave the world "300" and "Soul Man". Yeah, the 80's film where C. Thomas Howell pretends to be black, that guy.

The film is still in development so no release date has been set. For now you'll have to settle for the teaser below.

Horror at Sundance: "The Violent Kind"

The poster for "The Violent Kind" proclaims that it is "A New Film by the Butcher Brothers." I couldn't remember if the Butcher Brothers were a tag team wrestling duo or a late 90s electronica production team but it turns out they're the guys who made "The Hamiltons" from the first After Dark Horrorfest, as well as the "April Fool's Day" remake. "The Violent Kind" seems to defy synopsis and has something to do with possession, supernatural evil and a 1950s rockabilly motorcycle gang. It also stars the notoriously picky Tiffany Shepis, who as evidenced by her recent turns in "Zombies!

Horror at Sundance: "Double Take"

First the bad news. "Double Take" is not the eagerly awaited remake of the 2001 Eddie Griffin/7-Up Yours Guy buddy comedy classic. Guess we'll have to keep writing those letters. What it is, is... I have no clue. There is a ton of promotional material for "Double Take" on YouTube and I still can't make heads or tails out of any of it. All I know is I am intrigued by this movie and I want to subscribe to its newsletter. It has something to do with Alfred Hitchcock, or maybe an Alfred Hitchcock lookalike, possibly both and they might be trying to kill each other.

Horror at Sundance: "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers"

I suspect calling "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers" a horror movie is a bit of a stretch, but hey, it's got ghosts. It's about a fortune teller played by Angela Bettis who lives in a house filled with ghosts who act as her surrogate family. The ghosts eventually realize they are trapped in the house and the psychic is forced to come to terms with the fact that they have to move on. What's most notable about the film is that it was directed by musician Tim Rutili of Califone and the band's latest album shares a name with the film and serves as the film's score.

Horror at Sundance: "Enter the Void"

"Enter the Void" is the latest from master provocateur Gaspar Noe ("Irreversible", "I Stand Alone") and early accounts indicate that its every bit as shocking and technically brilliant as his previous films. It follows an American brother and sister living in the seedy streets of Japan but here's the kicker: it's entirely filmed in the first-person from the perspective of the brother. The brother dies early in the film so we spend the majority of the film soaring over Tokyo watching over the sister through the eyes of his ghost.

Trailer: Live Action "Dead Rising" Movie Coming To Xbox 360

I don't understand one word in the "Dead Rising" trailer, well other than when they say "Dead Rising" but the rest is completely lost on me. What I do know is that the film is based on the much loved video game and it'll be hitting Xbox 360's marketplace sometime in the near future. I have no idea what language the final product will be in but from the looks of things a terrible voiceover isn't really going to hurt anything.

Trailer: "The Booby Trapper" has neither boobies nor trappers... discuss.

I feel like I just ran down the stairs on Christmas morning and found nothing under the tree. That's how disappointed I am after watching the trailer for "The Booby Trapper". Maybe it's just me but when I read a title like that I expect to see some… well you know. But alas, I present to you what looks to be a decent low budget slasher film set in the woods, nothing more. There's a couple campers, a killer and a cop hell bent on finding the madman. All things that might make this a good film if it hadn't gotten my hopes up so high with a title like "The Booby Trapper".
