The glory of the original Birdemic: Shock and Terror (review here) still warms our heart with its insanity, and from what we gather, Birdemic 2: The Resurrection more than recaptures the lunacy. That being said, dig on the new artwork!

From the Press Release:
The squawking fan gets the sequel – two months sooner than expected. The highly anticipated film ‘Birdemic 2: The Resurrection,’ written and directed by the Master of Romantic Thrillers™ James Nguyen, will be flying into select major cities worldwide in April 2013.

In response to an unexpectedly large number of fans being cuckoo for these killer birds, the film’s production company, I Got a Fish Productions, turned down standard distribution deals at the last minute to remain independent and push the self-theatrical distribution of ‘Birdemic 2: The Resurrection’ ahead of its previously anticipated June 2013 release date.

“The main reason behind our decision to bypass traditional distribution was simply to get this film into the fans’ hands quicker,” producer Jeff Gross said. “We had a private screening for a few media outlets last week, and the feedback was fantastic.” He adds, “James is a true Hollywood outsider, and his unique vision of Hollywood under ecological and avian distress is on full display in this film. We can’t wait for fans to take it all in.”

In this sequel to cult favorite ‘Birdemic: Shock and Terror,’ a flock of giant prehistoric eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming love in Hollywood, California, leaving bloodshed and destruction wherever they hover. The story features original ‘Birdemic’ survivors Rod and Nathalie, who are joined by new friends as well as other Angelenos in their battle with these deranged birds. Fans can expect the same quality they’ve come to know from a James Nguyen film, only a whole lot more of it.

“My goal was to ensure that James had complete creative control over his sequel. He sees himself as a true auteur, and he’s dead serious about his craft,” Gross said. “I honestly had no idea how a ‘Birdemic’ sequel would turn out. But once I saw the script, I knew it had to be made. Creatively, I’m thrilled with the final product, and I’m happy to call this ‘an experiment that worked.’”

‘Birdemic 2: The Resurrection’ will be swooping in as a midnight movie at participating theaters, with director/producer Q&As and giveaways at select showings. Premieres have been set in April for Philadelphia, PA, and Paris, France. Stay tuned for updates.

Who will survive? Birdemic II, you asked for it.

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
