Haven’t we all sat through a horror movie from time to time and thought, “There were some really good parts in that movie, but just too much extra nonsense slowing it down.” With this in mind, our friends on the Bloody Cuts team are doing their part to combat cinematic fluff.

Premiering with Lock Up, the first of the Bloody Cuts series, the team will release a collection of two- to three-minute short films.

And after watching Lock Up, I can say that if the other titles in the series are as entertaining as this opening salvo, horror fans have something to look forward to. Lock Up takes a very basic horror premise, something we can all relate to, cuts away all the fat, and presents viewers with a very concise horror short. It’s a polished looking piece of filmmaking you’re sure to enjoy, and according to Ben Franklin of the Bloody Cuts team, it was all created for less than the cost of three pizzas. Either these guys are getting incredibly ripped off wherever they buy pizzas, or they know how to put out a slick looking short film on a miniscule budget.

From the Press Release
The first of 13 Bloody Cuts makes its entry wound with the release of Lock Up – the debut from an anthology of chilling shorts spilt from the vein of horror fanaticism.

When you’re leaving late from work, like you’ve done many times before, spare a thought for the complacency of your safety and stay out of the dark – evil lives there. Lock Up is a chilling tale of fear and suspense and a potent reminder that something of nightmares could be lurking in the shadows around any corner.

The Bloody Cuts films will be released online and run until their terrifying cycle is complete.

Whilst our filmmaking ideology is grassroots horror on a low budget, the Bloody Cuts team are looking for accomplices in the form of funders, sponsors or supporters. If you fancy associating your product, project or website with the Bloody Cuts anthology, then get in contact with us today to discuss ideas and opportunities; just send an here.

Each film will run at two to three minutes long and will be drenched in the tropes of classic horror, so if you’re a true horror fan, this will be right down your Elm Street. Frights. Cameras. Action. Watch this space as the dread unfolds.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?

Published

on

You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

Synopsis:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

on

Earlier today we let you know Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Get Out scored nods at this year’s Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor – both in the Comedy category.

Strange.

That said, another film from our beloved genre is getting some love in the form of writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s new creature feature The Shape of Water.

The film was given nominations in a staggering 7 categories including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Sally Hawkins, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Octavia Spencer, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Richard Jenkins.

Del Toro also scored nods for his work as director and co-screenwriter for the film.

You can check out the full list of nominations right HERE.

The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro, written by Vanessa Taylor and del Toro, and stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stulbarg, and Doug Jones.

The Shape of Water is currently playing in theaters.

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy

Published

on

It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
