It Watches

We have a short list for you this week with only 5 total releases, but if you take into account that one of those listings is a double feature, that bumps the movie count up to 6. That’s good, right?

Further, when taking the double feature into account, exactly half of our release list consists of classics. Reaching back as far as 1959 with Vincent Price’s House on Haunted Hill and spanning to 1973’s Psychomania, you can make two purchases and get three great oldies.

Check out the other three movies listed below, and keep checking back each week for your most up-to-date horror movie release listing anywhere on the internet. As always, pleasant viewing.

BUY IT NOW!


Psychomania (1973)

Starring:

Nicky Henson, Beryl Reid, George Sanders

Synopsis:

The United States gave motorcycle-mad cinemagoers Easy Rider, The Wild One and The Wild Angels. The United Kingdom gave them Psychomania, the tale of zombie bikers run amok in southern England.

The Living Dead are a delinquent biker gang, fond of causing havoc on British roadways and making out in graveyards. Gang leader Tom (Nicky Henson) also has a Satanist for a mother, and when he discovers the secret of immortality, the name of his motley crew takes on a more literal meaning…

Directed by Hammer veteran Don Sharp (The Kiss of the Vampire, The Devil-Ship Pirates) and co-starring Beryl Reid (Dr. Phibes Rises Again) and George Sanders (Village of the Damned), Psychomania is a wonderfully offbeat gem, outlandish and eccentric in equal measure.

COLLECTIONS

Starring:

Vincent Price, Richard Carlson

Synopsis:

This DVD contains a terrific double-dose of vintage chills (both films presented in 1.78 enhanced-widescreen transferred from 35mm film elements): Bert I Gordon’s thrilling ghost story Tormented and William Castle’s classic spookfest House On Haunted Hill.

Who out there loves Screen Junkies Honest Trailers?

Well, then today is your lucky day as the YouTube channel has just released their Honest Trailer for director Andres Muschietti’s take on Stephen King’s IT.

I don’t tend to watch these Honest Trailers videos but I have to admit this one was pretty fun. I’m not for mercilessly poking fun at movies that don’t deserve it, but when someone can point out issues I never realized (that are kinda valid) then I’m all in.

You can check out the Honest Trailer for Stephen King’s IT below and then let us know what you think!

Stephen King’s IT is now available on Blu-ray.

BUY IT NOW!

Synopsis:

Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.

Director Doug Liman Says Edge of Tomorrow 2 Could Be His Next Film

Published

on

I don’t know if you ever bothered to see the Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow, but if you missed out, you should make time for the stellar flick.

I kept putting the film off myself, but then when I finally peeped the Groundhog Day-style shenanigans contained within, I was a fan signed, sealed, and delivered D.O.A.

It is with this in mind I’m excited to share the news that Edge of Tomorrow 2 just might be director Doug Liman’s next film! Recently the director spoke with Collider and dropped some new info on the possible sequel.

“We’re just working on the script…,” Liman said. “[We’re no longer working on scheduling issues]; now it’s down to we have a window where we could go do it, and we’re frantically working on the script. It’s one of those movies that we’ll only go make if we love the script. It’s not one of those things where the studio is pushing us to make it and they don’t really care if it’s good or not. If the movie happens, it will be because Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise, and myself are passionate about making it, which is a great place to be. She doesn’t need this movie, he doesn’t need this movie, and I don’t need it. We’re gonna make it if we really believe in it. We have [a] story that the three of us love, so we’re working hard on the script.”

So when he was asked if the film could be his next flick, he said: “It could be. It has the possibility of being my next film.”

Good enough for me!

You can check out the trailer for the original film out again below; and for your own good, if you’ve been passing on the film for the last few years, give it a shot tonight. You will not be disappointed.

Synopsis:
When Earth falls under attack from invincible aliens, no military unit in the world is able to beat them. Maj. William Cage (Tom Cruise), an officer who has never seen combat, is assigned to a suicide mission. Killed within moments, Cage finds himself thrown into a time loop, in which he relives the same brutal fight — and his death — over and over again. However, Cage’s fighting skills improve with each encore, bringing him and a comrade (Emily Blunt) ever closer to defeating the aliens.
