Demons. Zombies. Zemons. Finally someone is speaking our language! Sit back, kids, and get ready to dig on some brand spanking new eye candy for the next undead laced filmic experience rockin' Christopher Lloyd!
Killer kid flicks are always a safe bet when it comes to bringing the freaky goods, but when said killer kids are also scientifically spawned mutants hungry for flesh, things get a little more icky! Cue Antoine Thomas’ Hidden 3D, coming to Blu-ray in the UK on October 10th courtesy of G2 Pictures.
Following a rousing world premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival last month, director Josh Koffman keeps the Canadian genre film flame burning with his wickedly nasty thriller Dead Dreams. The film is slated to open in Canadian theatres beginning October 14th in Toronto.
All you gorehounds north of the Border, do yourselves a favor and clear your calendars for this weekend, starting tomorrow, August 25 through August 28. If you haven't yet made plans to be at The Toronto Convention Center to attend the 2011 Fan Expo Canada/Rue Morgue Festival of Fear, don't worry; there's still time. And Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada is about to give you some additional motivation.
For genre fans the best part of the Toronto International Film Festival is without question the fest's Midnight Madness series, in which ten highly anticipated genre films are selected to play at midnight.
Do you live in Eastern Canada? Have you always wanted to appear in a film about zombies? Even better, can you sing? If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then read on for audition info for Brett Kelly's new horror comedy My Fair Zombie!
Word of a new Canadian indie horror film (in 3D of course) has hit the Net, and several things about it caught our eye. First off, Christopher Lloyd is part of the ensemble cast, it's being directed and co-produced by the highly regarded young actress April Mullen ("Howie Do It"), and it introduces a new concept to horror fans: zemons!
Unless you're living under a rock right now, and lord knows many of the people who dig this flick do, you're officially aware that the 1989 Canadian gorefest starring Amber Lynn and Barry J. Gillis, Things, will be resurrected from its VHS roots and reborn on DVD on July 12th.
O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we'll soon see the dead rise in Casey Walker's A Little Bit Zombie.
You can't say we didn't warn you there'd be some more distribution news coming out of the Cannes Film Festival. The latest tidbit is that Magnet Releasing (the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures) has picked up US rights and Mongrel Media has acquired Canada from XYZ Pictures to Panos Cosmatos’ sci-fi thriller Beyond the Black Rainbow.
Director Panos Cosmatos definitley has balls. His first feature, Beyond The Black Rainbow, is one of the most psychedelic offerings in quite some time, and the film reaches beyond the abstract into territory few films dare to explore. The question is, does Cosmatos have the vision and the talent to match his confidence? Decide for yourself when you see the film!
We're still not sure if Panos Cosmatos' Beyond the Black Rainbow is more sci-fi or horror, but its description certainly seems tailored toward the genre crowd so we're happy to point our readers - especially those attending this year's Tribeca Film Festival - in its direction. Perhaps the two new stills provided to us today will shed a bit more light on the situation.
We're just a few days away from the April 20th start date of the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival so over the next week we'll be highlighting this year's genre fare and posting the screening schedules. First up is Beyond the Black Rainbow, written and directed by Panos Cosmatos, a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons.
Strap in, kids. The powers-that-be at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival have released several stills from the entries in their Cinemania program (i.e., science fiction, horror, exploitation, and fantasy), and of course we have them all for you right here. First up is Beyond the Black Rainbow, directed and written by Panos Cosmatos. Synopsis:
In a scene straight out of a horror film, demonstrators dressed as ghouls and zombies marched around a Montreal courthouse to protest criminal charges being laid against a maker of gory films.
