First Look, Dread Central, & Metuchen, New Jersey’s Forum Theatre to Host East Coast Premiere of 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams

Published

As if hosting the West Coast premiere wasn’t enough, we’ve decided to hop in Tim Sullivan’s maniac mobile and head on over to the East Coast to make sure New Jersey gets its fair share of bloody, tasteless mayhem!

We’ll let Tim do the talking:

“I am so THRILLED to say that I will be having a EAST COAST premiere of my latest flick 2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS at none other then Metuchen, New Jersey’s Forum Theatre!

As a kid growing up in Metuchen seeing movies at the Forum, I never dreamed in a million years that one day I would be a movie director premiering my latest film at that very same theater!

Well … Actually … I did dream that – I just wasn’t sure the dream would come true!

But it HAS come true – thanks to my old Metuchen pal Peter Lowey and my new Los Angeles pals at DREAD CENTRAL!

For one night only, Saturday, July 17th at 9 PM, DREAD CENTRAL is sponsoring and hosting while Lowey allows me to transform the Forum into a classic Grindhouse Cinema for the EXCLUSIVE EAST COAST premiere of my blood and boobs extravaganza!

Yup – this one is NOT for the little kiddies or easily offended – but then again – if you know me and my work then you are obviously NOT easily offended!

I will be on hand to introduce the film along with DC’s Nomad, to sign copies of the DVD and CD soundtrack (three days before they are available anywhere else!) and do a Q&A afterwards!

Tickets are only $15 and go to keep our beloved Forum up and running.

So save the date – and make sure to order your tickets ASAP by calling the Forum Box Office at 732-548-5600! IT WILL SELL OUT!

Cannot wait to see you all!

SHOCK N ROLL —

Tim Sullivan”

That’s right, kids! It’s gonna be insane! For more information visit the Forum Theatre website.

Here’s Episode One of Dan Yadin’s Stop-Motion Animated Comedy I Want to Kill

Published

on

Brooklyn-based writer/director/filmmaker Dan Yadin’s new dark and twisted animated comedy “i want to kill” has premiered and you can watch the utter madness below.

The episode stars comedians James Adomian (@midnight, Children’s Hospital, Comedy Bang! Bang!), Amber Nelson (Guy Code, Netflix’s ‘Characters’) and Clark Jones (HBO’s ‘Crashing’, Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest People).

“i want to kill” is made from cardboard sets and low-rent stop motion and it is pretty damn strange if you ask me. But if that’s your thing then I think you’ll enjoy the animated series.

Check it out below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think!

Synopsis:

Astronaut Robert Holeman is fed up with Suburbia, after years of desires going unrealized and confronting his privilege, boredom, and mortality he’s been nudged into a sort of suicidal/genocidal nihilism stoked by a steady diet of drugs. The violent fantasies, anger, and fear don’t belong to just Robert, but also to his neglected girlfriend and son. “i want to kill” is about catharsis and release. Anger unchecked leads to emptiness, but boy is it funny.

Go Christmas Caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Published

on

Given that I personally have gone Christmas caroling with various lunatics hopped up on eggnog, what the hell… why not go Christmas caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer? Dig on this latest clip!

Look for the flick starring Colin Farrell (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, In Bruges, 2009) and co-starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (Best Actress, The Hours, 2003) to hit Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on January 23rd. Yorgos Lanthimos directs.

Special features include “An Impossible Conundrum” featurette, and the package will be priced at $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Synopsis:
Dr. Steven Murphy (Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife, Anna (Kidman), and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljic) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of Steven’s idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen he has covertly taken under his wing.

As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.

Which Monsters May Be Making Their TV Debut in Junji Ito Collection?

Published

on

Studio Deen’s highly-anticipated anime anthology Junji Ito Collection has been building buzz, especially since its new teaser dropped weeks ago. Eagle-eyed fans who are well-acquainted with horror mangaka Junji Ito’s body of work will spot some familiar faces in the new trailer, brought to the small screen by showrunner Shinobu Tagashira.

So, who among Ito’s famous menagerie of monsters may be making an appearance in the show when it airs next year?

Oshikiri Toru

Oshikiri is the morally-questionable highschooler who begins to question his perception of reality in Hallucinations, a series of some loosely connected one-shots. Oshikiri’s a little on the short side, with an even shorter fuse. One thing he’s not short on is moneyas evidenced by his impressive, albeit creepy, mansion. We’ve yet to see which of his adventureswhich range from murder to parallel dimensionswill be his television debut.

Yuuko

The once-chatty Yuuko falls ill and sees her worst fears come to pass in Slug Girl, the famous one-shot whose brand of body horror is sure to feel like a distant cousin (or maybe a predecessor?) to Uzumaki‘s “The Snail” chapter. It offers little in the way of answers but is best enjoyed in all its bizarre glory.

The Intersection Bishounen

In Lovesick Dead, one of Ito’s longer standalone stories, an urban legend causes a rash of suicides when young girls begin to call upon a mysterious, black-clad spirit called the Intersection Bishounen. The custom catches on quickly among teenagers, out late and eager for him to tell them their fortune in life and love, since his advice is to die for. Literally.

Souichi Tsujii

A long-running recurring character in Ito’s manga (probably second only to Tomie herself), you’ll know Souichi by the nails he sucks on or sticks out of his moutha strange habit borne out of an iron deficiency. He’s an impish kid whose fascination with the supernatural makes him the odd man out in an otherwise normal family. The morbid pranks he likes to playfunny only to him—don’t do much to endear him to his peers or relatives, either.

Fuchi

The titular character in Fashion Model, Fuchi works as a professional model for her, shall we say, unique look and Amazonian stature. When she and another actress are hired by a crew of indie filmmakers, Fuchi shows them that she doesn’t like sharing the limelight. She also makes a cameo in a couple of Souichi’s stories, and in them he finds her genuinely attractive. Beauty, after all, is in the eye of the beholder.
