ATTACK OF THE ADULT BABIES Comes Home on June 11

Published

on

I wasn’t too fond of Attack of the Adult Babies when I saw it at FrightFest last year, but as it’s being released on home video in the UK on June 11 courtesy of distributor Nucleus Films, I’m sure it will manage to find a dedicated fanbase. Especially among those partial to toilet humor.

Attack of the Adult Babies was directed by Dominic Brunt and stars Kurtis Lowe, Andrew Dunn, Charlie Chuck, Kate Coogan, Samantha Daniels, and The Human Centipede 2‘s Laurence R. Harvey. As its name suggests, the film focuses on a murderous group of elderly men in diapers, and yes, it really is as crass as it sounds.

Special features will include a making of featurette and a selection of Brunt’s previous short films, and the first 1000 copies of the Blu-ray will feature a slip case designed by artist Graham Humphreys. So if you happen to be in the mood for a film where a person literally drowns in shit, you can pre-order Attack of the Adult Babies on Amazon.

Wes Craven’s SWAMP THING Finally Coming to Blu-ray in the UK this September

Published

on

Although it’s certainly not considered to be one of his best films, I’ll always have a soft spot for Wes Craven’s Swamp Thing. Based on the DC Comics character, the film opened to mixed reviews when it was originally released in 1982, although it since gone on the earn a cult following, and even spawned both a sequel and a live action TV series spinoff.

88 Films will finally release Swamp Thing on Blu-ray in the UK on September 10, which will be the first time the film has been available on the format in the country. Extras will include two separate audio commentaries, one by Craven himself, and the other by critic and fan Ian Jane, and an interview with production designer Robb Wilson King. More extras will be announced closer to the date of release, although we know that the Blu-ray will come will also come with a booklet by critic Calum Waddell. The box art revealed on 88 Films’ Facebook page also promises that it will include a limited edition slipcase.

Swamp Thing starred Ray Wise as the scientist Alec Holland, with Dick Durock his titular monstrous alter ego. The supporting cast include Adrienne Barbeau, David Hess, Nicholas Worth, and Louis Jourdan. Whilst it was notably lighter in tone than most of the films that shaped Craven’s career, it’s still a film that all horror fans should watch at least once.

UK readers can pre-order their Blu-ray copy of Swamp Thing on Amazon.

First Look – GOOSEBUMPS: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN

Published

on

I’m really looking forward to the upcoming sequel to the Jack Black kid-horror flick Goosebumps. I enjoyed the books as a kid and dug the 2015 movie more than I ever thought I would.

And speaking of Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, today we have your first look at Ken Jeong in the film. The actor dropped the first look image over on Twitter and you can check it out below.

He’s dressed as Frankenstein’s monster, but this looks to be part of a Halloween party so I don’t think he’s actually playing that part… But I guess we’ll see.

The film is directed by Ari Sandel and stars Madison Iseman, Ben O’Brien, Caleel Harris, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ken Jeong, and Chris Parnell.

Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween hits October 12th.

Universal’s DARK UNIVERSE Really Dead?

Published

on

Earlier this year, Universal shut down their planned shared universe of classic movie monsters following the failure of the Tom Cruise flick The Mummy. So the Dark Universe is dead right? Not so much…

The other day Robert Vargas took to Instagram to post about his recent visit to the Dark Universe offices writing, “Great meeting this morning with the amazing Dark Universe team. Thank you Universal Exec, Holly Goline and Crash for the hospitality. Looking forward to contributing to the Universal Pictures legacy with my work. Monster things in the works 😉 Stay tuned!”

You can check out his post below for confirmation. But yes, it seems that Universal is keeping their Dark Universe up and running, for the time being. I don’t know if this means they will be retooling the shared universe from the ground up, or simply revamping their original plans.

I can’t help but hope they revamp the entire plan from the ground up, personally. I don’t think having these monster movies star Hollywood’s A-list was the right way to go. These monsters have persevered for decades now on the popularity of their characters alone – not what Hollywood soup of the day was playing them.

I say, kick out Cruise along with Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe, and Javier Bardem and cast mostly unknowns – like Marvel did with their cinematic universe. Sure Robert Downey Jr was a known actor at the time, but he was epically on the outs in Hollywood and so casting him was a ballsy move. And I just can’t believe the Marvel films would have been as popular if they had starred the biggest names in Hollywood – it just ruins the fun of discovering a new character from scratch.

Whatever ends up happening with Universal and their Dark Universe series of rebooted monster movies, we will keep you guys up-to-date either way. Stay tuned! Until then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
