Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer
We've been anxiously awaiting Jon Knautz’s next genre effort ever since having the opportunity to check out his 2008 horror comedy Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. It seems that the wait is finally over for us as well as legions of other fans as Knautz’s latest, The Shrine, is set to hit VOD platforms tomorrow (July 15).
It looks like Anchor Bay is wishing everyone a "Blu" Christmas as it releases a wide variety of films ranging from The Alphabet Killer to Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon to Walled In to Cyclops to Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer onto Blu-ray for the first time. Now that's a lot of cerulean!
There weren't a lot of horror films honored during the 35th Annual Saturn Awards, presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, but those that were certainly are deserving.
To be honest, Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer
was a surprise. Mixing horror with comedy and Robert Englund doesn't always pay off, but for me the only real flaw Brooks had was in the pacing. So, will we get to see director Jon Knautz tighten things up with a sequel?
When I first heard about Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (review)
, I thought the film was going to be about a psychopath hunting down the likes of Rosie O'Donnell or Ulli Lommel. My mistake, but Jon Knautz did something neither of those two could do: entertain!
Word just came down to us from a trusted source that the forthcoming DVD of Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer
, which hits October 7th, will be giving a little something extra to those of you who shop Best Buy...
How cool would it be to both witness exclusive content from a badass monster movie and win $2500? Well, you can find out by signing up for the Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer

Jack Brooks has one hell of a job. Who wouldn't want to beat the livin' hell out of monsters? That fantasy job may never exist, but at least we can watch someone else do it.

Messiahman chimed in with a bit of news today for those in Hollywood and the surrounding areas. Jon Knautz's monster flick Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, is going to have a special showing at midnight on August 12th at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery
I’m baaaack. Not since four years ago, the first time we started the Fantasia blog has anyone had to do the coverage solo, so props to McCannibal for keeping the train rolling last week. It’s a tough job fitting in two, three, and sometimes four films a day, choking down a grease laden meal, drinking the skuzzy yeasty swill that is all you can get after leeching a beer ticket or two off of Mitch, and heading home at midnight to start writing.
