The Slayer Gives Some Head in This Exclusive Re-release Clip

Published

The Slayer Arrow Video

Originally released back in 1982, director J.S. Cardone’s The Slayer quickly found itself falling foul of the UK’s infamous “Video Nasties” legislation, the result of which was a lack of any fully uncut release until the turn of the millennium.

But oh, how times have changed! Aficionados of all things ’80s slasher should get excited right about now, because the UK’s Arrow Video will finally raise The Slayer from the ashes of obscurity with a stunning new 4K transfer on August 21.

In celebration of the imminent release of this feature-packed Blu-ray/DVD combo set, here’s a suitably bloody clip to get those juices flowing!

Written by J.S. Cardone and Bill Ewing, The Slayer stars Sarah Kendall, Frederick Flynn, Carol Kottenbrook and Alan McRae.

Synopsis:
Two young couples set off to a secluded island for what promises to be a restful retreat. But the peace is short-lived: as a storm batters the island, troubled artist Kay begins to sense that a malevolent presence is here with them, stalking them at every turn. Is she losing her mind, or are her childhood nightmares of a demonic assailant coming to terrifying life?

Falling Water Returns to USA Network in January; New Teaser Unveiled!

Published

on

We learned way back in April that “Falling Water” had been renewed for a second season on the USA Network, but since then things have been rather quiet. Now, finally, the Season 2 premiere date has been revealed along with a new teaser video, which you can see above.

From the Press Release:
An intersection between reality and unconscious thought, “FALLING WATER” explores the story of three unrelated people who realize they can affect the waking world from inside their dreams, but they aren’t the only ones with this ability. Together they seek to eradicate factions that use dreaming for nefarious purposes.

From USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, the series returns on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at 10/9c.

Season 2 picks up with Taka (Will Yun Lee, “Hawaii 5-0”), Tess (Lizzie Brochere, “American Horror Story: Asylum”), and Burton (David Ajala, Fast & Furious 6) struggling to protect themselves and their loved ones against an unknown entity that manipulates nightmares, bringing chaos and death into the waking world. The fate of the humanity rests with these gifted dreamers.

“FALLING WATER” is executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead”) of Valhalla Entertainment, Richard Rothstein, and Tim Andrew (“Teen Wolf”). Rémi Aubuchon (“Falling Skies”) joins as showrunner and executive producer.

Catch up on Season 1 of “FALLING WATER” on Amazon.

Danny Trejo FINALLY Gives Update on Machete Kills Again… in Space!

Published

on

Back in 2010, director Robert Rodriguez unleashed Machete, his cheesy action extravaganza starring Danny Trejo as a Mexican vigilante seeking revenge on those who had double-crossed him. Based on a “fake” trailer promoted during Grindhouse, the film managed to attract an all-star cast consisting of Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Jessica Alba, and Robert De Niro.

Having fared decently at the box office, a sequel, Machete Kills, was released in 2013. Sporting another unbelievable cast with Mel Gibson, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, and Lady Gaga… Machete Kills was a riot! My personal opinion: I love Machete, but the sequel scores a few higher points in my book; watching the film on the big screen was one of my all-time favorite theatre-going experiences.

Attached at the opening and end of the film was a teaser for the supposedly upcoming film Machete Kills Again… in Space. This trailer took the cheese factor to the next level, promising the return of Lady Gaga while insinuating that Justin Bieber would star as Bleep, an obvious spoof of Star Wars‘ C-3PO. Also featured was none other than Leonardo DiCaprio! Touted as the Man in the Silver Mask, DiCaprio would supposedly take over the role previously played by Mel Gibson (although this bit of casting notice includes the subtext: “actor subject to change”… hopefully not!!!)

It’s been over four years since we were treated with this trailer and Machete Kills Again… in Space hasn’t graced our screens yet. But according to Danny Trejo, there is still hope!

While promoting Dead Again in Tombstone in a recent Facebook Live Q&A, the From Dusk Till Dawn actor revealed, “We’re waiting. I’ve already talked to Robert [Rodriguez]. He says, ‘Yeah, I’m putting it together. Let’s start writing it.’ So I talked to Mel Gibson. I said, ‘Mel, hey, come on, let’s talk. Let’s do Machete Kills in Space.’ Mel goes, ‘I’m in. I’m ready. Tell Robert.’ So we’re gonna do it.”

Better hurry up! With the recent influx in all things Star Wars, there is simply no better time to send up that material than now.

News of the film has been slim since April 2015, when Trejo implied that shooting would begin later that year. In the time since, Rodriguez has become busy with the launch of his El Rey Network, as well as the upcoming film Alita: Battle Angel; not to mention, a number of projects lined up including a remake of Escape from New York… but here’s to hoping he still plans on sending Machete into space! And soon!

Back in 2015, Michelle Rodriguez was also quizzed about the film’s future, stating: “Just out of knowing Robert, I’m sure that if it was insinuated, that possibility looms. I don’t know when. But for sure. I think that he would not leave that door open if he didn’t plan on using it.”
