Nature Run Amok
Though very few got up and shouted about the greatness of Black Water (DVD review) when it was released a few months back, the reviews were pretty even across the board, at least the ones I read.
For the past 2-3 years an enterprising filmmaker named Christopher R. Mihm has been making his own homegrown homages to the classic black & white sci-fi monster movies of yore. I reviewed his first, Monster from Phantom Lake, a while back. Since then he has produced It Came from Another World and Cave Women on Mars.
The latest film from “Cutting Moments” director Douglas Buck, The Broken Imago, is only a teaser trailer right now, but it’s a teaser trailer that’s preparing to win hearts and minds with its tale of a virus that targets only adults.
We just found a set of the first images from Jamie Blanks’ upcoming remaking of the nature gets revenge movie Long Weekend, which will be showing itself at the upcoming American Film Market in Santa Monica.

Killer pigs ... Killer pig people ... What exactly set off this current trend of hogsploitation flicks going on in horror cinema right now? Prowling the American Film Market website, I stumbled upon info about yet another pig-themed horror flick that had previously slipped below my radar: Squeal.
Just a week ago I was telling you about the mind-blowing trailer for Shark in Venice. This week I can tell you that not only does it now have a DVD release date set; the title has gained an extra "s". And get a load of that hysterical DVD artwork.

There was a movie about a decade ago called Hijacking Hollywood that featured a movie-within-a-movie that was a soulless, megabudget, Hollywood special effects extravaganza version of Moby Dick. Now here we are ten years later and that in-joke is about to become a reality.
The fine folks who gave us Shark Attack, Shark Attack 2, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon, Shark Zone, and Raging Sharks are now giving us Shark in Venice, a motion picture that combines the absurd notion of a huge man-eating shark prowling the polluted waters of the Venice canals with the even more absurd notion that people want to watch movies starring Stephen Baldwin.
It’s not a huge update, but typing the word “chaw” is a helluva lot of fun so I’ll take what I can get. Variety is reporting this morning that Korean sales outfit Fine Cut has jumped on board the Seoul/San Francisco-shot horror/comedy Chaw to get the film out there and find some distribution.
We’ve been keeping info on the new Tara Reid opus Vipers close to our chests since it was first announced, but we’ve done it for your own good. We know how insane the hype can be for a new horror movie with Reid so we’ve basically been trying to avoid mass hysteria.
