Studios that wonder why some films fail to make a profit should take a long hard look at how much effort was afforded to those bombs. Sunshine (review) is one such movie that received zero press, zero advertising and obviously few theatre goers. It has disappeared from many local cinemas and will most likely be gone all together in the next week.
The Saw franchise is an unstoppable juggernaut (Saw IV, Wrong Turn 2 Interviews! - August 06, 2007)! Everywhere you turn there's something new popping up about the fourth installment, but don't think the previous chapters are being left for dead.
We’ve been talking about Hellgate: London for years (A Horror Gaming Flood Is Coming - July 12, 2007). The first person role playing action adventure thingy from Flagship Studios (mostly made up of people that made the Diablo games) has been on the radar for so long I keep forgetting that it didn’t come out ages ago.
Every now and the, an indie film will show up on our radar seemingly out of nowhere and catch us by surprise. In this day and age when so many filmmakers want to be followed from the moment their film is conceived till the moment it hits the big screen, it’s nearly unheard for a horror movie to get made without someone online knowing of it.
May I present to you, the DVDs for Tuesday, August 7th, 2007... Bad Reputation (2005) Directed by Jim Hemphill
You thought it was over? You thought you’d seen the last of our video interviews from Comic Con 2007? Are you insane!?!?
When is a remake not a remake? How about when the title is different, the script is different and the film’s director blatantly says “This is not a remake”? Yeah, that might be a good indication of it not being a remake...
Though we can’t say for sure how strong the horror elements in “The Oaks” will be, I have to admit the idea of the show is pretty intriguing. Apparently new Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly agrees with me, one of the many things he and I have in common.
Michael Grais, writer of Poltergeist and Poltergeist II: The Other Side, now has a producer credit notch to add to his bed post; the thriller-horror film (as Variety calls it), The Wall.
Wow, what a wacky concept! Okay, try and stay with me here; the pitch is a buddy cop show, right? But in a “hilariously horrifying” twist, the buddies are dedicated to bringing vampires, werewolves, and other creatures of the night to justice! My God what a great, original concept!
Because I kow most of you are sitting out there like junkies waiting for more info on Nick (Murder Set Pieces) Palumbo’s next film, Corpse, we’ll try and make sure you get your fix.
Every time I look at my Fiend Without a Face prop I cannot help but smile. Something about having a life-sized brain complete with arms and a dangling spinal cord just makes me smile. Then of course when I look to the left I see my Captain Spaulding mask just smiling right next to me. That thing is so life-like it's like having Sid's severed head laying on my table.
Now here's a movie after my own heart - Creature from the Hillbilly Lagoon. A group of college students run afoul of a band of inbred rednecks, but making matters worse is the gillman monster spawned from toxic waste dumped into a nearby lagoon. Expect plenty of cheap, cheesy, gory, gooey, rubber-suited fishman on a rampage action. They don't make enough movies of this ilk for my take, and when they do they're usually of the Rana, The Legend of Shadow Lake variety.
This was one of the first movies we saw at Fantasia this year that had to do with some kind of massive apocalypse or traumatic event going down but told a very small story within the framework.
Sorry for the tardiness of this news. Been a bit busy thanks to the local taco place spiking my food with sharp bits of metal. But, enough of that and on to something really interesting: Black Sheep's
