This Inbred Dog Marks His Territory with Blood

Movies about killer dogs are nothing new. Movies about killer inbreds are nothing new either. But one and the same? The new low budget chiller Dog takes the chocolate of dogs and the peanut butter of inbreds and puts them together in one gruesomely delicious cup.

The Final Destination "Rumble" Clip

Twilight Dawning for Taintlight Parody

Am I the only one shocked that The Asylum is not getting in on the Twilight bandwagon with a mockbuster? It seems like a no-brainer; yet, here we sit, mockbuster-less.
