Trailers

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 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.

Tucker (Alan Tudyk, "Firefly", "Dollhouse") and Dale (Tyler Labine, "Reaper") are a couple of good 'ole boys spending the weekend with a few cold beers at their fixer-upper cabin in the woods.

"Splice" has the solid pedigree of coming from "Cube" director Vincenzo Natali and executive producer Guillermo del Toro.

Remember that movie "Open Water" that came out a few years ago about the divers stuck in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sharks?

You know what all those Guy Ritchie movies have been missing? Vampires! I know it seems pretty obvious now that you think about it but it didn't dawn on me until this morning when I saw the trailer for "Dead Cert".

When the rapist and murderer of his eight-year-old daughter is arrested, a successful surgeon kidnaps the man as he's being taken to the courthouse and spends seven days taking out his revenge while evading the police.

And here I was thinking Croatia's only export was strippers and mail order brides. Egg on my face, huh! Go ahead and throw weird black and white movies that baffle the crap out of me to the list. For example the movie "Vektor", which originally I thought was about graphic design.

The Sundance Film Festival has fully embraced genre film and some of the biggest and best releases of the next year are screening right now in Park City. Over the next few days we'll take a first look at the movies we'll be talking about in a few months.

The whole "trying to make zombies funny thing" is getting a little old, but the people behind "ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction" are giving it another shot. Does it work? From the trailer below I'd say no but then again what do I know.
