WTF?!

This coming weekend we couldn't turn down the chance to see Harry Potter's "The Woman in Black" for review on the podcast, even though another horror-ish film comes out the same week, "Chronicle". The plan, as of now, is to review the odd looking found footage flick NEXT weekend. I may be the only one, but I'm fascinated by the trailers, specifically this shot from the end where they're staring into an underground cavern and exclaiming "oh snap!" to each other. Okay, I'm in. Let's find out what's down there together...

I was going to post the trailer for "When The Lights Go Out", but I'm going to level with you, it looks terrible. The poster though sports my favorite promotional phrase of this week, "From the producers of 'Bend it like Beckham' and 'Moon'". I'd like to meet the person that not only loves BOTH of those films, but also wants a horror movie "in the style" of each... combined. I imagine he or she is very eclectic. (click to enhance)

5 minutes ago I would have responded to that question with "wha?". Now, I'm not so sure....

What a hilarious little discovery for us all these years later though. I hope more things like this start popping up soon. I’d love to find out the hidden design connections between Turok and The Accused.

Here's some artwork for "Devil's Carnival", a film that just announced it has a member of Slipknot in it. Which one? I'm guessing someone with a mask whose parents didn't hug him when he was a kid. Just a stab in the dark.

Bonus, an ELEVEN MINUTE TEASER TRAILER. To hell with the definition of "Teaser"... half the movie, unedited. World' best PR campaign.

It has to say something about late twentieth century America that at a certain point, the computer game owned by the most households was a simulation where you practiced picking mines out of a field while trying not to blow yourself up. Granted, it wasn't exactly a graphic representation, but just think about it. Someone once sat by himself in a room and THOUGHT THAT UP. Just saying, it's weird.

Anyway, someone went and added an adorable little girl and zombies that want to eat her, and that's somehow still less disturbing to me. Available now on your various Apple devices.

"Now, from the producers of those films you mostly enjoy because they're short and there's nothing else to watch on Halloween, comes the thing no one asked for... all three films in the series, edited together in chronological order!" Even as a "Paranormal Activity" fan, I can't imagine who would want to see all three films cut together, "never before seen footage" or not. You'll see me at a three day long "Lord of the Rings" marathon before you see me watching this. It's being used as a promotional tool for the series release on "Bluray" and Digital Download.

This week it's time for Jon's staff pick, David Cronenberg's "Shivers". We talk about orgies, parasites, and Disco Stu...

I’m going to hazard a guess here and say that if you are a regular reader of this website, chances are somewhere in the depths of your DVD collection you have at least one of those DVD sets with multiple horror “classics” packed on a handful of DVDs. It’s happened to all of us – you see a few titles you recognize, a few more that have to be watchable (“Werewolf in a Girl’s Dormitory” anybody?), and hey, who doesn’t need a seventh copy of “Night of the Living Dead”? I’ll also guess that you watched no more than three of the movies before realizing that murky VHS transfers of rightly forgotten movies maybe wasn’t the best ten dollars you ever spent. If you’re looking for some holiday-themed horror this Christmas you might want to blow the dust off that box set and see if it has “Silent Night, Bloody Night”, a gothic proto-slasher that beat seasonal classic “Black Christmas” to the punch by a couple of years.
