Genre writer Mark Wheaton (Friday the 13th remake, The Messengers) is about to see one of his best stories, Sunday Billy Sunday, adapted into a feature film, and we have the who, what, where, when, and how for ya! We're good like that!
Here's a hint: If you're a truck driver and your cargo is to consist of a ton of coffins, you may just want to pawn off the delivery on someone else. No good can come of these circumstances. No good at all.
We've been following the progress of indie filmmaker Sonny Fernandez's zombie opus Highway 91 for about six months now and are happy to report that it's finally available to purchase on DVD! To celebrate the occasion, he sent over a version of Dr. Smith's popular “Zombie Bitches Kicking People’s Ass” music video specifically recut for Highway 91.
We can barely remember a time when Bigfoot was hotter. It seems as if every time that we turn around, another indie flick starring the crypto-based beast makes its way onto our desks. The next one up? Dear God No!, which features Bigfoot vs. bikers and a shitload of other weirdness that has us grinning from ear-to-ear. Okay, interest officially piqued.
Let's face it ... just because you're a rotting, shambling, undead thing with a hunger for human flesh doesn't mean that you don't need anyone to look out for you. Given their poor physical state, zombies probably need more help than anyone. Good thing for them that Ace is here.
About a month has gone by since last we told you about the new sliver of Sasquatchploitation coming our way known as Night Claws. This flick sounded like nothing short of chicken-fried gold, and now there are even more reasons to get excited!
Earwigs. They're just nasty, filthy, disgusting, evil little buggers. Even their name is awful and can send chills (entered through the ear) straight down the spines of people who just don't like insects. It was only a matter of time before someone put these pests on film, and filmmaker Bruce LeGrow has done so in grand fashion!
Tom Savini got his start in the film business by creating some of the greatest F/X work horror movie fans have ever seen. As his career expanded, he left behind the latex and Karo syrup and began creating characters in a different manner ... by portraying them on screen. While that's cool and we love some of Tom's characters, we've been hungry for him to get back to F/X work.
What's in a name? Apparently a lot as the latest movie about a badass swamp monster getting ready to maim everyone in its way is up to moniker number three, but it looks as if this one will be sticking!
Mother has had her day for far too long so Troma has unleashed yet another trailer for its upcoming splatter epic Father's Day. Get ready for another taste of the carnage to come.
For our money in order to make a zombie movie good, the zombies themselves have to look bitchin'. All too often young indie filmmakers just apply powder and then stage blood onto folks and then claim them to be the living dead. That's akin to sticking plastic vampire teeth in your mouth and saying you're Dracula in terms of effectiveness.
An update on another new indie film landed in our inbox this week. It's set around Halloween, our favorite time of the year, so of course we had to share! Read on for some more details, artwork, and a teaser trailer for House of Purgatory, written and directed by Tyler Christensen.
We received word recently that the world premiere screening of vampire horror film Jezebeth will be held at the Portage Theater in Chicago on Sunday, June 5, 2011. This historic theater can seat up to 1,400 people and has a giant screen that will bring the demon Jezebeth to viewers in a larger than life presentation.
It's amazing how something so old can become new again. I guess it all boils down to how good the source material is, and as we all know, it doesn't get much better than the timeless tale of Frankensetin and his misunderstood creature.
