If you missed The Asylum’s first theatrically released flick #HoldYourBreath and the cyber cafe Candyman that was Smiley during their very limited theatrical runs and haven’t gotten around to watching them on VOD you won’t have to wait too much longer to see them both.
The first Asylum production to receive a theatrical release proved to be a mixed bag to say the least but slasher movie fans that like their films with a healthy dose of over-the-top kills, gratuitous nudity, and a wacko finale will probably enjoy seeing Tucker & Dale vs. Evil’s Katrina Bowden and Randy Wayne of “The Lying Game” get terrorized by a body-jumping serial killer after they fail to adhere to an old wives’ tale that states you should hold your breath when passing by a cemetery lest you risk letting in a damned soul.
The Asylum is set to release Jared Cohn’s #HoldYourBreath (review) (possibly hash tag-less by the time it reaches home video) on both DVD and Blu-ray come January 22nd. No word of what, if any, extras will be included on the disc.
For those of you that listened to the new Dinner for Fiends and did not come away completely warned off of Michael J. Gallagher’s Smiley (review)Smiley you’ll get your chance to experience one of the worst horror movie endings in years soon enough. And then when anyone asks you why you watched it you can tell them “I did it for the lulz”.
This movie is about a girl called Ashley as she goes to her new college while getting over the death of her mother. She meets some new people there including Binder (‘Shane Dawson’ ) while at a party and she learns about an urban legend of an online killer that has the nickname “Smiley” who can only be seen on the web and he apparently kills people after they type in “It’s all about the lulz” three times. Soon after going to the party Ashley and her flatmate Proxy go online to test it out, with horrific results. She becomes paranoid and she starts to think she sees Smiley all over the place and feels that he may be chasing her, but how can that be if he is not real? Have they somehow released him from the internet?
Caitlin Gerard, Melanie Papalia, Shane Dawson, and Roger Bart star in this fright flick Arc Entertainment will be setting loose on DVD February 12th. No artwork or disc specs have been released as of yet.
