ABCs of Death 2

ABCs of Death 2

Get ready to gasp, laugh, shriek and cheer at this latest anthology of 26 short tales, each punctuated by a different shocking, wickedly entertaining death. Completely one-upping its predecessor, ABCS OF DEATH 2 is packed with outstanding thrills, chills and kills, brought to you by some of the acclaimed film-making talents behind fan favourites CUBE (Vincenzo Natali), AMERICAN MARY (The Soska Twins), BIG BAD WOLVES (Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado), MANBORG (Steven Kostanski), ROOM 237 (Rodney Ascher), INSIDE (Alexandre Bustillo) and JUAN OF THE DEAD (Alejandro Brugues), just to name but a few!Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2014.

I really enjoyed the chaotic bloody confusing mess of the first ABCs (my review/breakdown of the film here), and by the looks of the insanely NSFW red band trailer, I will definitely enjoy the second installment. Check it out below.

Director:Jaume Balagueró
Writers:Jaume Balagueró, Manu Díez

Being a huge fan of REC 1&2 (I didn’t say 3), I have been literally frothing at the mouth every time a tidbit of news, teaser poster or in this case trailer is released. Now the trailer is pretty much just a mash-up of the previous films; minus the trainwreck that was Genesis, it does whet the appetite for some blood soaked chaos. Doesn’t it! Here’s a bloody pic from the set and the “Trailer”. UPDATE new official trailers added! Check it.




Nice!

Nice!

The Green Inferno

The Green Inferno

A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone – and that no good deed goes unpunished.
Director: Eli Roth
Writers: Guillermo Amoedo, Eli Roth
Stars: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns
Budget: $6,000,000 (estimated)


I am really pissed, I have been absolutely drooling over this for the past year or so waiting patiently for the homage to the legendary Cannibal Holocaust. Bloody Disgusting had this to say “Deadline is reporting that Green Inferno, the Roth-directed film about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. We’ve been supporting the film heavily here on the site after we posted this positive review last September. They write that this happened because financier Worldview Entertainment is balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A. They have also confirmed from Open Road that the release date is scratched, though the distributor won’t comment further, including whether there will be a later release date or if this goes straight to video.
Anywhoo check out the trailers below and go watch Cannibal Holocaust.

Evil Dead 2013


Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

With about 2 weeks to go until the international release of Evil Dead 2013 (I can’t sleep much these days), IMDB has already seen it’s share of reviews, ratings and rants concerning the film. I wish I had access to this screener or lived in an area where an advanced marketing screening was in progress, but alas that is not the case. Now I don’t really like ruining a film by reading to many reviews or lengthly synopsis’ by critics before I view a film, I like to be disappointed on my own terms. This is where the haters come in. (If I hate haters then am I a hater?). Bitching and moaning that the film is not exactly the same as the original. Whining about the fact that it’s not the same without Bruce Campbell, or Sam Raimi behind the helm. Comments like, “This film should never have been remade”, “Evil Dead for the Xbox generation”, “why should we consistently be subjected to remakes” and “The story is a vacuous imitation of the Raimi classic”. Get over it! It’s a horror film. It’s a remake, so what! Look at it this way, at least we get another horror flick out of the deal. I am trembling with anticipation for Evil Dead so I am going to focus on the postive’s here, Haters be damned. Oh and watch the insane red band trailer, Now! (more…)

The Bighead

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read this “this project has been funded” on kickstarter, referring to Edward Lee’s seminal splatterfest, The Bighead. What sicko’s would actually want to see that perverse, degrading, gross, atrocious, blood spattered book ever made into a film…….well me for one. I read the book, threw up, read it again some months later, blogged about it, threw up again and decided I enjoyed the book immensely. If you haven’t read The Bighead (must have a strong stomach) I suggest you do, it is the literary equivalent of A Serbian Film and The Human Centipede combined and on crystal meth. Here’s a link to a short write up I did on the book Wurd: The Bighead. Anyway (excuse my frothing at the mouth) a short film has concluded filming and is set to be premiered in Los Angeles on Saturday March 30, 2013 at 7:00 PM at the Acme Theater in Hollywood. Check out the trailer and all the juicy details below.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”) is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as celebrating the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.

Blah, blah, blah…for me and most people I know St. Patricks day is about one thing and one thing only; getting absolutely stinking drunk! While I have adhered to this tradition of excessive alcohol consumption for most, if not all of my adult years, I decided to stray a little this year. Irish themed horror! What better way to celebrate St Patricks day! My original choices for Irish horror were Shrooms (which was a great psychological drugged out horror-fest), Isolation (not a bad genetic experiment type horror flick) and Wakewood (which I have yet to see), all horror flicks from the emerald Isle. Something went sideways and I ended up settled on the Leprechaun saga. Yep all 6 films back to back, a great Irish themed horror marathon. That was the plan; 12 hours of bloody Leprechaun madness. Things didn’t go exactly as planned. (more…)

Lord of TearsLord of Tears is a British Chiller in the classic tradition of films such as The Wickerman, The Innocents and The Haunting. Our story concerns a man trapped in a crumbling mansion, stalked by Owl Headed monster in the misty highlands of Scotland, on a mission to piece together a childhood broken apart by repressed memory and dark secrets. It takes inspiration from classic mythology, ancient history and modern legends such as those of – Slender Man!

I became aware of Lord of Tears through a fellow blogger a couple of weeks back and visions of the Owlman have haunted my waking hours ever since. It’s twisted, mind-bending visage is sure to leave a lasting impression on the face of horror. I haven’t seen a more disturbing “monster” in a long time, kudos to Writer/Director team Sarah Daly and Lawrie Brewster for creating one uniquely horrific fiend with the Owlman. The trailer exudes a creepy, brooding psychological horror; depicting the apparent descent into madness of a tormented schoolteacher. Set against the bleak and forbidding Scottish highlands, Lord of Tears promises to be every indie horror fans wet dream. (more…)

Hypothermia

Hypothermia

The project tells the story of two friends. The two have been fishing at the same location for years, but one day a sudden disappearance in the populace of fish puzzle the young men. After initially considering the possibilities, they wonder if the lake was fished dry, or if there was a deeper, darker meaning to the empty lake. This question is quickly answered, as the friends are attacked by a mysterious creature, and more victims are found beneath the icy lake.

Director: James Felix McKenney
Writer: James Felix McKenney
Stars: Michael Rooker, Blanche Baker, Benjamin Forster
Release Date: 2 October 2012
Runtime: 73 min
Production Co: Dark Sky Films & Glass Eye Pix
Hypothermia (2010) on IMDb

I really gotta stop doing this to myself; I get bored at around midnight and start scrolling aimlessly around crackflix for something to make my eyes bleed to. I find that with my sleep addled brain and caffeine burning eyes that my choices are always on the questionable side of things. I generally look at the rating to get somewhat of an idea how good or bad a film will be (I don’t put to much faith in ratings), so when I happened upon Hypothermia with its 3 star Netflix rating, decent looking cover and somewhat interesting synopsis, I thought tonight would be different. Wrong! (more…)

When a nun broke her covenant with God to save the life of Aman, her unborn son, he was cursed for life. As an adult, Aman (Snipes) has killed those who have crossed him. But his curse brings his victims back to life, and as the undead, they pursue him endlessly for revenge. Forever suffering this curse, A man enlists Fabulos (Smith), a young gunman, to fight by his side against his undead victims.

I found myself wondering today, “Where in the hell is Wesley Snipes“? Don’t ask why. My brain shorts out sometimes. So I google’d him this morning and came up with this. A lackluster trailer for a Zombie Western featuring a very “Blade” like character. I was never really a big fan of snipes so I don’t think I will be rushing to see this one anytime soon (though Zombies always obsure my better judgement). Anyway check out the trailer below, it’s kinda meh, really. Gallowwalker. (more…)

Howling V: The Rebirth (1989) on IMDb

Bored outta my mind last night and in the mood for some old school horror, I scrolled crackflix in search of some bloody nostalgia. I came across many tempting entries along the way; The Stuff, Terrorvision and Phantasm. Undecided in which direction I should go; monster, slasher, alien goo or zombie I flipped a coin and settled on Howling V: The Rebirth. It’s been years since I’ve watched a Howling flick, and I was stoked for some werewolf mayhem. Wow. The Howling V was absolute 80’s cheese (filmed in 89 released in 90). (more…)
