We told you about filmmaker Eben McGarr's upcoming horror comedy Hanukkah back in the early summer and showed you two hilarious one-sheets for the film. Just in time to burn those oils, Eben's back with a new teaser guaranteed to make you giggle maniacally.
In 2009 a group of independent filmmakers embarked upon an epic challenge: to create a work that reflects and relates to those pieces of art that had influenced their individual and collective lives. The result was Birth of Separation, and on December 14th we'll all have a chance to see the film as it has just been picked up for distribution by Indieflix.
With the 2011 Sundance Film Festival taking place January 20-30, all sorts of goodies from their horror offerings have been popping up so let's start off the coverage with stills from Calvin Reeder's The Oregonian.
It was a little over a year ago when I first brought news of Monster Mutt, a monstrous new family film billing itself as "Beethoven meets Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" about a lovable dog transformed by a mad scientist into an adorably silly looking furry fiend. I predicted then it would be on DVD shelves sometime in 2010. My prediction proved off by four days.
Earlier today we provided you with some first images from Alex Chandon's Inbred, and now we've got a big batch of more photos, both behind-the-scenes and straight from the film, along with the trailer and a link to the official website.
Remember that flick we told you about that had the UK all up in arms, Inbred (story here)? If not, hit up that link; it's pretty hilarious! In any event we now bring you the first look at some images from the film and the official one-sheet! Dig it!
Since new takes on B-movies seem to be the flavor of the day, we're happy to bring you another heaping helping of fantastic looking silliness. Brace yourself, dearest reader, for the attack of the Zombies from Outer Space!
Yep, you read that headline correctly.
So really, dearest reader, what scares you the most? Speaking for myself, the answer is clear: the enigma that is Don King's Afro and the mystery that it represents. Okay, never mind ... it is frightening though. Filmmaker Adam Barnick has gone to great lengths to try and answer this question, and his new documentary, What is Scary?, is almost ready to shed some light on the subject.
The thought of art imitating life can truly be a scary notion. For many years the mentally unstable have committed countless heinous crimes and blamed them all on music, movies, video games, etc. The new film A Thousand Cuts is set to explore this idea in the most terrifying of ways.
One film that's been on our radar for quite some time is Gregory Lamberson's Slime City Massacre so we're glad to report it now has official distribution. Media Blasters has acquired the North American rights to the film and will release it on DVD, VOD, and Blu-ray in 2011. From the Press Release:
We’ve been sitting on our hands with this one for a few weeks (we actually were on set so stay tuned for that report soon), but given the buzz currently surrounding filmmaker Tim Sullivan’s latest splat-stick effort "I Was A Teenage Werebear" (his recently wrapped segment of the anthology film Chillerama; see our exclusive on that here<
When the ever vigilant Avery sent me over word of a new horror film titled Witch's Brew, I was disappointed to learn it was not based on the penny machine of the same name I once won $50 on at a local casino. This Witch's Brew is a gross-out horror comedy about the gory things that happen when beermakers piss off mistresses of the dark arts.
We're always on the lookout for interesting sounding new films to clue you guys into, and an email that recently landed in our inbox from director Jacob Cooney details just such a project: a short film entitled "The Frolic" based on a short story of the same name by Thomas Ligotti. Here's the skinny:
Leaving a seemingly endless trail of controversy in its wake, Srdjan Spasojevic’s ruthless A Serbian Film will soon be unleashed (albeit in a heavily cut form) on the population of the UK. To help with the anticipation, we have a look at the UK trailer for you!
