The look of a monster can make or break a monster movie. However, the Far East has always had creature appearances on lockdown, doling out some truly classic designs over the years; and the one for the upcoming 3D monster bash Sector 7 looks to be following suit.
Yoshihiro Nishimura's Helldriver will be having its New York premiere on Thursday, April 28, 2011, as a very special launch event for the 5th Festival of Contemporary Japanese Film (July 7–July 18, 2011): Japan Cuts and for the New York Asian Film Festival 2011. Director Nishimura and actress Eihi Shiina will both be in attendance.
Didn't I just read an article last week claiming that the existence of the chupacabra has been debunked once and for all? Something tells me the makers of The Night of the Chupacabras aren't overly concerned with scientific accuracy. One look at this new English subtitled trailer proves this is a b-movie in multiple senses: Brazilian, blood, boobs, and a beast.
There are just a few days left in Indie Horror Month, and today we bring word of an upcoming independent German production entitled Urban Explorer from director Andy Fetscher via Papermoon Films and The Little Film Company. Urban Explorer was written by Martin Thau and stars Nathalie Kelley, Nick Eversman, Klaus Stiglmeier, and Max Riemelt. Synopsis:
Filming in Kiev, Ukraine, and broadcasting on the Internet, Overturn bills itself as the first international science fiction/mystery series; and it has every right to do so. The performers hail from an incredibly diverse array of countries, including the United States, Australia (the country and the continent), Italy, Denmark, Russia, the Ukraine, Nigeria and Vietnam.
Coming at us from the Far East and filmmaker Kantz is a good old fashioned chop sockey horror flick filled with martial arts and lots of delicious violence. Are you ready to become part of Project Purgatory Beijing? Check out the opening scene to find out! More on this one as it comes. Synopsis
The first ever images from filmmaker Juan Martínez Moreno's hairy new horror comedy, Party of Wolves (or Lobos de Arga for you purists out there), have hit the net; and we've got a look at them right here for you!
While his latest film Cold Sweat having just enjoyed its premiere at the SXSW film festival, director Adrián García Bogliano is ready to debut one of his older films overseas, and we've got the trailer and one-sheet for you.
In recent weeks it's begun to seem like Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand have turned into a veritable hot bed of b-movie horrordom. That means attractive Asian women in various stages of undress, copious amounts of blood spillage, and horror elements that range from cheesy to effective. And in the case of Ghost: The Cinderella, a very peculiar title for a movie that looks so gruesome.
The announcement came a couple of days ago that The Collective and Bloody Disgusting would be distributing little seen horror flicks theatrically via AMC Theaters, and now one of them even has a release date ... the German zombie-fest known as Rammbock (review here).

Can’t make it to the Tribeca Film Festival? Don't despair. Just like last year, Tribeca 2011 will have an online component, allowing you to watch some of the films from this year's fest in the comfort of your own home. The only catch? Just one of them is a horror film: Rabies (aka Kalevet) directed by Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales.
Hey, remember that Asian splatter flick Macabre? Of course you don't because despite making the film festival rounds, it never landed U.S. distribution. Hopefully the next film from the directing duo of the Mo brothers will fare a bit better. Maybe?
While the current catastrophe in Northern Japan may have Hollywood pulling movies and rewriting scripts to not potentially offend any sensibilites, it's almost comforting to know in some respects it's still business as usual in Japan, as evidenced by no calls to ban or censor Yoshihiro Nishimura's Helldriver, a splatterfest that begins with Northern Japan going to hell after being showered
