It Came From the Internet!
Continuing their love affair with all things horror (we totally approve, by the way) the cats over at the "Cinema Cool Show" recently sat down with the maestro himself, George A. Romero, to talk his special brand of zombie flicks starting from Night of the Living Dead all the way up to his latest release, Survival of the Dead.
Two things you may not think would go together actually fit quite nicely once combined! Are you ready to see what could possibly happen if everyone's favorite old school video game character navigated his way through the torture porn sub-genre?
Wasn't there a "South Park" episode not that long ago about Goth kids getting pissed off that their style was getting ripped off by a bunch of poseurs inspired by Twilight to dress and act like soulful vampires? Real-life Goth kids might want to seriously consider following their animated counterparts in burning down Hot Topic because I Was a Teenage Werewolf has officially become a lifestyle fad, and we have the news video to prove it.
The uber gorefest known as The Human Centipede is now an unauthorized Flash game thanks to Roger Barr of I-Mockery! YESSSS!!!!
Have "High Hopes" and an extra $1.15M laying around? Then you, my friend, can buy what could quite possibly be the most infamous house on the face of the Earth.
Who needs all of the "he said, she said" headaches circling Ghostbusters 3? It's as if everyone involved forgot how much fun the movie and the experience was! Well ... everyone but us fans and comedy troupe Improv Everywhere.
I can’t believe it, but I have a nation filled with witnesses now. The new Windows commercial, broadcast during the most recent episode of the "Family Guy", featured a clip of Lucio Fulci's shark vs. zombie attack from his famous spatterific masterpiece Zombie.
Let's face it, man. The zombie apocalypse -- does it really seem that far off? Mark my words, it is going to start as a result of all this friggin' hand sanitizer usage. We are all for staying germ free, but dudes, we're killing off germs that we're supposed to build up a natural immunity to. All that we're doing is sketching out the blueprint for super germs to come and wipe us off the map via the living dead!
Even though Troma Entertainment's Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead had a relatively small theatrical run at around three hundred theatres nationwide, it still managed to garner itself a #1 per-theater average. To say thank you to fans, the full movie has hit online, and you can now watch it for free! Take that, all you cheapskates out there!
It's been a while since we've been treated to an edition of Joe Lynch's Body Count on G4's "Attack of the Show", but he's back and ready to dish his latest picks from the gory side of the street.
A couple of weeks back a group of lovably loony horror fans blessed us with a pretty damned good look at some of horror's bloodiest moments. Now the gang is back with a whole new beast - a loving look back at The Monster Squad.
There are a million questions we have about Popeye, the sailor. We know that his nemesis was named Bluto when he was fat and Brutus when he was muscle bound -- but were they the same person? Then there's the oddly misshapen Olive Oyle - Anorexic or inspiration for Stephen King's Zelda from Pet Sematary? And how about Popeye himself? He spent a lot of time fighting off sea hags, sea monsters, and goons successfully thanks to his trusty can of spinach, but what if some of those supernatural beings rubbed off on him?
How many times have you found yourself in this situation? You're just hanging out and watching TV when all of a sudden *BOOM* zombies come pouring in through your living room window. Happens to us all the friggin' time and now we are no longer getting caught with our pants down (depending on what we're watching on said TV of course).
Anyone who knows George A. Romero knows that when it comes to movie making and special effects, the man loves to tinker, always reinventing himself and his movies. Another thing about George is that he's always looking to find young talent who know how to work (and work cheap) with the maximum results!
Every so often a couple of young filmmakers come along with no money and nothing but passion to make something really friggin' cool and knock it out of the park. This is one of those times.
