Behold the creeping terror making its way towards you on May 8th, 2007…

Click to see it bigger!Arang (2006)
Directed by Sang-hoon Ahn

Another goddamn boring ghost story from the annals of Asia? Perhaps, but at least this one sounds like it’s got some good deaths in it. A young detective and her partner are investigating a bizarre series of deaths in which the victims seem to have had some kind of acid released into their systems. As they dig deeper, they learn that the deaths may have something to do with a murder that occurred years ago in a salt house, whatever that is. Said detective starts to be plagued by nightmares of the murder victim as the killings continue. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Backslash (2007)
Directed by Kevin Campbell

If you’re anything like me, I bet you’ve always wondered “what does make for the ultimate Internet predator?” Well, now we get to find out thanks to a new film called Backslash, a title with the double meaning of the symbol on a keyboard used for Internet addresses and, as you can see by the cover, an actual back being slashed. Brilliant! Even better is the plot, which concerns two beautiful girls cast in a slasher movie and its website (?) who are pursued by a maniac that desires fame and fortune no matter the cost. Buy it here!


Blood Rites on DVD!Blood Rites (2007)
Directed by Joshua Moyse

A young and beautiful girl (is there anything better, I ask you?) moves with her father to the small New England town of White Cross. Even though she wants to kick back and enjoy the quiet life, the local crazies have other plans for her. She’s confronted at every turn by a new one: a blind priest who talks in riddles, young girls anxious to lose their virginity, a white figure who can pass through walls, and of course a lot of death. She has to discover the town’s secret before her death is next. Buy it here!


Cadaverella on DVD!Cadaverella (2007)
Directed by Timothy Friend

An interesting twist on the Cinderella story, at least in theory, the film is about a girl named Cinder (sounds pretty goth to me) whose fairy godmother is actually a voodoo god, her mom is a stripper and, to top it all off, she’s been killed. Now she only has until the stroke of midnight to get her revenge on, which I’m sure she does through all manner of sexy poses and the like. Brain Damage really needs to work on their covers, don’t you think? Maybe it’s just me, but man, some of their stuff really bugs me. Buy it here!


Cope on DVD!Cope (2007)
Directed by Ronald Jerry
Now see, this is what I’m talking about for their covers; this one’s a lot more striking (ignoring the ugly-ass Brain Damage bar at the bottom of course) and sure as hell grabs the eye. The film is about a family in Kodiak, Alaska who wake up to discover that everyone else in their small town has vanished, leaving them behind to come face to face with their worst fears. Of course violence and gore come into play when said fears are stared at. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!The Fearmakers Collection
Directed by John McCarty

A ton of on-camera interviews and biographies of some of the men who made our genre great including Tod Browning, Jack Arnold and William Castle. New directors are featured as well like Dario Argento, Joe Dante, John Carpenter and more. Each segment clocks in at 30 minutes, if the information I found is accurate, giving a thorough look at the director’s work and his influence on the genre. A must-have for any genre fan who realizes that the best way to tackle the future is to understand the past. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Graveyard Alive (2004)
Directed by Elza Kephart

Still, to this day, I don’t get the love for this movie. I saw its premiere at Fantasia a few years back, and it bored me to tears. Tears, I tell you. The film was shot in black and white on the cheap and was originally supposed to be a silent film, a gimmick that actually would have worked quite well for this movie considering its look and the poor quality of acting conveyed through ADR. The story is about a quiet, subdued nurse who becomes infected by a zombie and turns into a raging sex kitten for some reason. Sure, why not? Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Night of the Werewolf (1980)
Directed by Jacinto Molina

Naschy fans rejoice! A newly remastered version of one of the man’s classic films! The story follows a woman with a taste for the black arts who thinks it’d be a smashing idea to resurrect ole Countess Elizabeth Bathory to help her rule the world. All goes according to plan until the Countess learns that her old nemesis, the werewolf, has been brought back from the dead as well and focuses all her evil energy on taking him the fuck out, and I don’t mean for dinner and a movie! Check out Creepy’s DVD review of Night of the Werewolf for more! Buy it here!


Swamp Zombies on DVD!Swamp Zombies (2005)
Directed by Leonard Kabinski, Jr.

Damn that federal government, always coming around at the worst possible time to muck up the secret experiments of mad scientists everywhere. Such is the case in Swamp Zombies when a doctor trying to create a serum to bring the dead back to life is inspected and has to get rid of his test subjects in a nearby swamp, not knowing if the drug will work or not. It sure does, and up come the living dead to feast on hapless victims! Check out our review of Swamp Zombies for more! Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Vengeance of the Zombies (1972)
Directed by Leon Kilmovsky

Though there is a storyline somewhere in there, star and writer Paul Naschy himself has said he was under the influence of something when he wrote it, which is easy to see when you sit down with the actual film. Naschy plays both an Indian mystic concerned with tranquility and peace and his twin brother, a voodoo practitioner who uses his powers to bring hot naked girls back to life to enact revenge on those who wronged him. Hell yes! Check out Creepy’s DVD review of Vengeance of the Zombies for more! Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!The White Slave Collection
Directed by Various

Just what you’ve been waiting for, kiddies! A collection of movies about women being taken hostage by jungle predators to use as white slaves! Wow! Within are Naked Amazon, a mondo documentary, the exploitation classic White Slave (duh) and the independent horror feature Sacrifice of the White Goddess. Forget everything else that’s out this week; this collection is where it’s at! You realize I’m being sarcastic, right? No angry e-mails, damnit! Buy it here!

Just the other day we shared with you guys an exclusive interview with Partick Brice, the director of the Mark Duplass-starring found footage flicks Creep and Creep 2.

Today we have the awesome news that the killer sequel Creep 2 will be hitting Netflix streaming on December 23rd.

The original creeptastic motion picture is already streaming on Netflix so if you need to catch up – or just watch the original again – you can do so tonight and get ready for the sequel which, personally, I found to be superior (if even just slightly) to the original.

Creep 2 starring Mark Duplass and Desiree Akhavan hits Netflix December 23rd!

Synopsis:

Desiree Akhavan (“Girls”, APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR) stars as Sara, a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work,” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Mark Duplass, reprising his role from the previous film). Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him. However, as the day goes on she discovers she may have dug herself into a hole she can’t escape.

I Already Have a Dog But Now I Want a Baby Dinosaur

Published

on

The first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, is rumored to be attached to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Since that film is going to be coming out in less than a month, it’s no surprise that the marketing campaign for the dino-filled trailer is already starting and today it kicks off with a six-second teaser that is as adorable as you can get!

In the teaser, Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady is petting a baby velociraptor, which coos and twitters in the cutest of fashions. Is there anything else going on? Nah. Does something else need to happen? Nope. The movie already has me sold.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (When a Monster Calls), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, and Toby Jones. However, the biggest and most important star of the film will be the return of Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, who is, in my humble opinion, the best character in the franchise, besting even the T-rex that seemingly cannot die.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will evolve into theaters on June 22, 2018.
