7 Forgotten Flicks of the 2000’s

Published

on

Slither

The first decade of the 2000’s was an interesting time for horror. We saw the rise of torture porn, vampires, zombies, found footage, and most importantly, the end of ironic and snarky teen-driven horror such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Movies like Saw, Hostel, and Paranormal Activity reigned at the box office, while others possibly remembered by horror fans have seemingly been lost to time. Here are 8 of these forgotten flicks.

Slither

7. The Forsaken, 2001
A cross-country roadtripper meets a hitchhiking vampire hunter, an infected stereotypical blonde, and wackiness ensues. Starring horror and “Dawson’s Creek” veteran Kerr Smith (Final Destination, My Bloody Valentine – It’s gettin’ so early-2000s up in here!), The Forsaken is not a memorable movie by any means; yet, it deserves a mention due to its cool desert night shots and for being a vampire movie before we wanted to stake Edward and Bella.

6. Slither, 2006
The Horror-Comedy of Your Dreams would be a better title for Slither. If you’ve never seen Slither, stop everything you’re doing and watch nerd royalty Nathan Fillion fight alien slugs with Michael Rooker and Elizabeth Banks. This James Gunn-directed future cult classic is the perfect disgusting combo of body snatchers meet small-town zombie virus. Coming up on a ten-year anniversary in 2016, here’s hoping for a Blu-Ray Special Edition covered in slime.

5. The Others, 2001
This supernatural thriller is possibly the culprit behind the twist ending trend, and what a twist this one has! Nicole Kidman stars with some creepy pale kids who can’t get into the sunlight in World War II England (not that there’s much sun to begin with in that part of the world). Throw in some fog, pervasive weirdness, and a paranoid mother; and you’ve got the ultimate shock-ending ghost movie before ghost movies were cool.

Giallo Makes A Comeback With Crystal Eyes

Published

on

The giallo genre has somewhat fallen off the radar in recent years, but that’s all about to change with the new Argentinian film Crystal Eyes (original title: Mirada de Cristal). Set in 1985, the film’s about a series of murders taking place in the glamorous and colorful fashion world, so it sounds like a true giallo throwback.

Crystal Eyes was directed by Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano, and stars Silvia Montanari, Anahí Politi, Erika Boveri, and Claudio Armesto. It screened at both the Mar del Plata International Film Festival and the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival, and received a great audience reception at both. We were sent the trailer for the film along with the poster and a bunch of lobby cards, which we proudly present below.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.
