Retro Poster: "Scream, Baby, Scream" (1969)

Joseph Adler's "Scream, Baby, Scream" can pretty much be summed up as a bad acid trip. Written by Larry Cohen ("It's Alive"), we meet a world renowned artist who plans on taking his artwork to the next level by creating living masterpieces with women that he's kidnapped. The bad dialogue, goofy fashions, and the tripped out camera angles give the feeling of many of those fun 60's monster movies. Unfortunately, it doesn't really have much going for it other than some fun psychedelic poster art. That and a weird scene where teenagers take acid and go play in a monkey cage at the zoo.

Motorhead gives new song "Outlaw" to TROMA for "Mr. Bricks"

Nothing is more metal than Lemmy Kilmister, and nothing says pure kick ass than Motorhead. Say what you will about Lemmy, but here's a man that can honestly say fame never changed him, he never forgot his beginnings, and he's always offered his support for things he loves, asking for nothing in return...well, maybe some Jack Daniels. But that's it!!

Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 27th, 2011

If you're looking for something to give you nightmares tonight then you're in luck because there's a new trailer for Alex de la Iglesia's "The Last Circus". It's chock full of sad clowns, clowns in the mood and of course clowns that will beat the living hell out of you for looking at them the wrong way. Clowns don't play son.

Tickle me excited folks because "Return of the Living Dead" is getting its own documentary. Beverly Randolph, who plays Tina aka not the one who stripped in the graveyard in the original film is an executive producer on the project that's currently gearing up for production. The doc will focus on the first 3 films in the series and will sadly ignore "Rave to the Grave", which just missed cashing in on the techno fad by a short 10 years.

A brand spanking new post for the upcoming Troma film "Father's Day" has hit the net and after seeing it and reading the description I'm a little disturbed. Apparently the movie focuses on a mad man who stalks a town by raping and murdering all the local fathers. Does this happen a lot? I think I need to reconsider this whole parenting thing.

For those of you out there sitting and waiting for the release of Josh Schwartz's "Fun Size" then get excited because the Halloween comedy will hit theaters on October 12th 2012. Then get depressed because you're sitting around waiting for a movie that's being directed by a guy who produces "Gossip Girl" and features Chelsea Handler. You feel stupid now don't you? Good.

In Real People News: 

I worked at the customer service counter of a local grocery store in High School and I can confirm that people get pissed when they don't get to return their Ring Dings that they think are stale. After reading this story about an angry New Hampshire man I can now also confirm that people also get really pissed when they can't return a van they think is damaged. Pissed to the point of driving the van into 7 or 8 other cars on the lot.

Well this is a new one. A California man had his eyebrow bitten off by a young girl after he tried to stop her and her mother from attacking another young woman in a parking lot recently. I had no idea this was even possible. I'm not even mad, just impressed.

Horror Headlines: Friday May 13th, 2011

I don't know how I missed this new movie called "Skinny Dip" that's starring Sasha Grey and Danny Trejo but a whole gang load of people have been added to the cast. Namely Pam Grier, Michael Madsen and Brigitte Nielsen. That last one being my favorite Girl Next Door. If you say Kendra you're a fool! Anyway, the movie is a throw back to the girls kicking ass movies of the 70's and 80's and based on that I think there's a solid chance we may see some hot Grey on Trejo action. I know, I just threw up too!

Low budget vampire horror comedy? How can this not be awesome!? "Vampires in Venice" is what we're talking about here and it's got a trailer up on the tubes for your viewing pleasure. Is it funny? No of course not, but that doesn't make the movie any less promising. Wait... no scratch that. I think that's exactly what it means.

A new poster for Troma's "Father's Day" is out there for your viewing pleasure and I"m giddy with delight. The movie which focuses on a man who rapes and kills fathers and the man trying to take him down comes out on June 19th. That's father's day in case you couldn't have guessed. You're a terrible person.

And because it's Friday the 13th and you really shouldn't go the entire day without seeing something really awful here's the first full trailer for the upcoming season 4 of "True Blood" that kicks off on June 26th. See you in hell folks.

In Real People News: 

A Florida woman was arrested on Tuesday after she whipped out her boobies in front of a school bus stop where a group of kids were standing. She was originally charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition but the charge was eventually downgraded but the judge, presumably because she's kind of hot.

A 20 year old Juggalo (yes I'm excited too) from Oklahoma has been arrested after he hit a person with his car and dragged him over 100 feet. Police are still trying to figure out what caused the crime but if I was a betting man I'd say it started over an argument about who likes rainbows more. And yes, he is wearing the face paint in his mug shot. Score!

Snapshot: "Mother's Day" (2011)

Darren Lynn Bousman's "Mother's Day" appears to be a remake of Troma's 1980 version in title alone, which may not necessarily be a bad thing. When three brothers botch up a bank robbery, they take off on the run and head for home, only to discover that their mother lost the house due to foreclosure. The new owners of the home are having a party when the brothers show up and take their family and guests hostage.

Retro Trailer: "Rabid Grannies" (1989)

"Rabid Grannies" is a Belgian horror film that was dubbed in English and thankfully distributed in the US by Troma. It's a pretty fun little horror comedy that revolves around the demonic possession of two elderly sisters on the night of their 92nd birthday party. An unusual gift sent by the women's devil worshipping creep of a nephew results in a night of foul mouthed, flesh eating, murderous grannies on the loose. I must admit, if you're looking for a night filled with Oscar worthy performances and production, you'll probably wanna skip this one.

Retro Trailer: "Student Bodies"

I'm just going to lay it out here: I hate the Scream series. Sure, the first one was good, but in true Hollywood tradition, we need to milk every god damn ounce of potential profit until even a mention of the aforementioned movie produces a onslaught of bile in our throats.

Hobo With a Shotgun (REVIEW)

Rutget Hauer is the Hobo, in Hobo With a Shotgun

Sitting down to watch something called "Hobo With a Shotgun," there can be little doubt about how things will unfold. Jason Eisner, director of a film that bears such a name, knows this as well. Much to his credit, Eisner seems to realize that he's as unlikely a feature filmmaker as has ever been, and so he plays his heart out to ensure that "Hobo" delivers on the promise such a concept contains.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 1st, 2011

Sir Kevin Smith plans on trimming about 10 minutes of film from "Red State" before he hits the road on March 5th to screen the film to select audiences. With ticket prices for the screenings running anything from $50 to $125 I'm going to go ahead and say I don't give a crap how bad the movie is you leave in every freakin second of it before it turns out people are paying 100 bucks for a crappy 12 minute opus.

Wait a second isn't there already a remake of "Mother's Day" coming out"? What the hell is "Father's Day"? Where did this teaser come from? Who are these people? What are you doing Troma? Father get raped in this movie? What the hell is going on!? Where am I?

Good news everyone in Chicago, "Evil Bong 3D: The Wrath of Bong" will premier there on 4/20 (get it!?) and will feature "Sniff-O-Rama". What that pretty much means is the good people from Full Moon will give out a bunch of scratch-n-sniff cards when you go to see the movie and you can pretend like you're in the movie. I'm just guessing here but I'm thinking 95% of the cards will smell like weed.

What's got two thumbs and is only 85% sarcastic about being excited for "The Roommate" this Friday? This guy! Try not being fired up after checking out the 3 news clips from the movie that have hit the tubes. Just try you monsters!

In Real People News: 

I've always been grossed out by free samples at grocery stores and here's proof I'm not crazy. A women in New Mexico claims she was given semen instead of the yogurt sample she expected recently at her local market. Apparently she recognized the taste immediately and spit the sample out. There's just too many jokes to be made here that I can't possibly choose one.

And here's a women from Florida who thought she was buying a novelty lighter that turned out to in fact be a real grenade. I had the same thing happen to me in high school when I went to light my smokes and ended up shooting three of the neighbors dogs.

Horror Headlines: Thursday December 23rd, 2010

Here's a new poster for "Unknown" staring Liam Neeson as a husband who visits Germany, gets into a car accident that lands him in a coma and then wakes up to find he's been replaced in the world. The horror of it? He has to stay in Germany to try and solve the mystery.

"Alien vs. Ninja" is a Japanese horror flick from the same producers of "Tokyo Gore Police". This means nothing to me because every Japanese horror film is the same, but I suppose it still might excite some. The film which revolves around a ninja who battles and alien hits DVD and Blu-Ray here in the US on February 22nd.

Anyone else remember those "Dorf on Golf" videos? Well Stephen Dorff apparently had nothing to do with those. He did however have a lot to do with "Blade" and is working on details for a prequel that would see him starring in the film as a sort of Scarface Vampire type. Still it would be nice if he did some golfing in a midget outfit. That crap was hilarious.

"There's Nothing Out There" is a movie I've never seen but it's from the gang at Troma so I can pretty much guess what I'd be getting. For those of you who have seen it, or if you want to see it, the 20th anniversary DVD will hit shelves on January 11th. Just in time for that special someone on your holiday list who you don't care enough to see before the actual holidays.

In Real People News: 

A man in Michigan returned a book to a local library after having it out for 76 years. Which is amazing because it's also the plot of my favorite episode of "Seinfield". It's like the TV knows the future or something.

And here's a freakin' robot waiter in China. I'm sure this will soon be followed by robot soldiers which will then be followed by robots killing us all and us moving into underground caves. So thanks again, China!
