DVD Releases: Unholy Wind Chill

A relatively short list for Tuesday, September 4th, 2007…

Click to see it bigger!The Amityville Horror 4: The Evil Escapes (1989)
Directed by Sandor Stern

Just like we always knew would happen, the evil infesting the iconic Long Island house manages to escape and travel to California via a lamp. Yes, that’s right, a lamp. While there, it decides, being evil and all, that it will torture a young girl (mentally, of course) by manifesting itself as her dead father. Seems so trivial, really, but then evil’s never been about big steps when it comes to its Amityville incarnation, has it? And why the hell is this getting released by itself when almost all the other entries in the series are packaged with at least one other? Weird. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!The Murder Game (2007)
Directed by Robert Harari

Wow, now stop me if you’ve heard this one before; a group of kids get together for a murder game, in which one of them is selected to be a “killer” and has to “kill” the other people he or she is playing. They head off to a self-storage warehouse to play their game and at first it’s all fine … until they start dying for real! (cue terror music) So now there’s real death all around them and those surviving need to get out and/or stop the killer before the game is, quite literally, up. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It (2007)
Directed by Alex Zamm

I know, R.L. Stine isn’t exactly the hardest of the hardcore, but the kids have to start their love of horror somewhere, right? Seems like a good enough place to me. The story here is about a girl named Cassie who moves to a school ruled by a beautiful girl, and the rivalry that starts up between them almost instantly. But when the pretty girl goes missing along with Cassie’s younger brother, something horrific is apparently at the heart of it all… otherwise why would it be on this site? Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Unholy (2007)
Directed by Daryl Goldberg

Now this is a movie I’ve been waiting to see for quite a while now; we’ve been reporting on it for years, from every stage of production, so it’s a bit of relief that it’s finally coming home this week. Of course, if it’s any good is still up in the air. Unholy is the story of a mother and son trying to deal with the suicide of their offspring/sibling, who uttered the cryptic words “beware the experiment” before blowing her brains out. Nazis and strange stuff in middle America lie at the heart of the truth they seek. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Werewolf in a Women’s Prison (2006)
Directed by Jeff Leroy

Wow, a lesbian women in prison movie with werewolves? What the hell else could you ask for in your late-night, lonely man rentals? This is the story of a women who, while out camping with her boyfriend, is bitten by a werewolf. She awakens to find herself in a women’s prison, being the only suspect in her boyfriend’s gruesome death, and is forced to do things that only women in prison together have to do, most of which will hopefully involve nudity. Buy it here!


Click to see it bigger!Wind Chill (2007)
Directed by Gregory Jacobs

Maybe I’m just out of it, but I really thought this was going to be a theatrical release by Sony, so imagine my surprise when it showed up here. Just… imagine it… Anyway, the story is about a college girl who gets a ride home for her winter break from a guy who, she soon finds out, knows way more about her than he should. When they take a turn off from the main road, which I’m betting he says is a shortcut, things start getting really spooky as apparitions appear and the girl wonders if she’s just simply lost her mind. Buy it here!

Bigfoot Horror Movie Cherokee Creek Gets Trailer and Poster

Published

on

I have always said that the last movie monster out there that has yet to get a quality flag-ship flick is Bigfoot. Everyone in the world knows Bigfoot (right?) so why the hell isn’t there a “Holy Grail” movie centered around the big, hairy sumbitch?

Don’t get me wrong, there have been a few quality motion pictures based on the big guy including Bobcat Goldthwait’s Willow Creek and Edwardo Sanchez’s Exists. But neither of those films blew the roof off the movie-going public.

Maybe Cherokee Creek will finally do the trick?

We’ll have to wait and see. But until the film has an official release date we can always take a look at the film’s trailer and poster – both of which you will find below.

Give them a look and then make sure to let us know what you think has been the best Bigfoot movie thus far (Harry and the Hendersons?) in the comments below!

The film is written and directed by Todd Jenkins and stars Billy Blair, Todd Jenkins, Justin Armstrong, Terry Dale Parks, Ray Hosack, Jeff Swearingen, Justin Duncan, CG Lewis, Nellie Sciutto, Steve Mokate, Jason P. Kendall, Anthony Phoenix, James Yeager, Elizabeth Jenkins, and Jinx Jenkins.

Synopsis:

A bachelor party in the woods gets crashed by the ultimate party animal.

Edward James Olmos Says Shane Black’s The Predator is Really Funny, Yet Deadly

Published

on

When we first heard that writer-director Shane Black (Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Band, The Nice Guys) and his main collaborator Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, The Monster Squad) were going to be taking on a big-budget reboot/sequel of Predator we were excited as hell. As we’re sure you were as well.

We knew the film was going to be, at least in some aspects, the funniest Predator film we have seen thus far. I mean with Black and Dekker penning the script how could it NOT?

But just how funny will The Predator be?

Well, if we are to believe ScienceFiction.com and co-star Edward James Olmos, the movie is going to be hilarious… yet still deadly.

The Blade Runner actor was recently out and about promoting the new Disney film Coco, and dropped some all-new info on Shane Black’s The Predator.

“Oh, my goodness. That’s an interesting story,” Edward James Olmos told the site. “I haven’t seen any of it, but it’s gonna be funny. The kids in the thing. Yeah, the humor. Huge. Huge. I mean I was in shock, because, you know this is a really intense franchise, and it still is. Don’t get me wrong. You’re gonna be inside of it. But the characters are… what he did — Shane is an incredibly gifted writer, and he’s a great director, and so he ended up getting an incredible ensemble, and when I reached it they had already been filming for three months so they were a unit. So I jump in as the General and there were some moments where I just had to laugh in the scene and I couldn’t be laughing in the scene. ‘I’m sorry guys. Really, I’m sorry.'”

“Keegan (Michael Key) and Thomas Jane, they’re paired off in groups of three groups,” he continues. “Six guys. The way they work, they were all post-traumatic stress disorder guys who were inside of an insane asylum. A mental hospital. Then they put the lead character in there to kind of make them disappear, because they want them kind of out of the picture. And so he gets involved and then boom, the world goes crazy and these kids are released. But out of a freaky incident with some of the Predators. It’s crazy. It’s so crazy. I’m excited for it, and I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I got a good feeling about it. I mean if it’s really funny, and yet deadly like Predator is.”

I’m not surprised at all that the film is going to be funny, and the thought of a humorous Predator movie doesn’t worry me in the slightest either. I have utter faith that Black and Dekker will give us one of the best Predator films in the franchise.

What do you think? Let us know below!

The Predator stars Thomas Jane, Edward James Olmos, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski, Augusto Aguilera, and Keegan-Michael Key.

Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are producing.

The Predator comes out August 3, 2018.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web Snares It’s Bad Guy

Published

on

A few months back word dropped that “The Crown” star Claire Foy would be taking up the role of Lisbeth Salander in director Fede Alvarez’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

The movie is a sequel/reboot to David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and before all of this gets too confusing, it breaks down like this:

There were a series of books based on Lisbeth Slander called the Millennium trilogy a few years back. The books were called “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “The Girl who Played with Fire”, and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.”

These were made into a series of Swedish movies with Prometheus star Noomi Rapace as Salander.

The first in a planned trilogy of American remakes was produced by Fincher and starred Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth. But the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo wasn’t a smash success so all future installments were abandoned.

In the meantime, a new trilogy of Lisbeth books were published over in Sweden and the first was called “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”… and now Sony is just skipping all the other books and jumping right to the new trilogy for a reboot.

Make sense?

I know, it doesn’t but whatever. For the time being, let’s just call this new flick a sequel/reboot to David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and leave it at that.

Anyhow, today’s news concerns the new film’s villain who will be played by Claes Bang (The Square). On top of that, Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) has also joined the cast as Salander’s twin sister.

The new installment is directed by Fede Alvarez from a script by Steven Knight and Fede Alvarez & Jay Basu, based on the book by David Lagercrantz

The film begins shooting this January in Stockholm before hitting theaters Oct. 19, 2018.

Synopsis:

She is the girl with the dragon tattoo — a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker — a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it…
