Vipers to Tara-Rize Reid on DVD

Published

on

Tara Reid vs. The Phallic Innuendo!UPDATE: A astute reader named Joey found the DVD artwork for Vipers over at HK Flix and passed it along to yours truly. I can also now confirm that DVD is being released by Wellspring/Genius Entertainment.


It took a lot of intestinal fortitude to resist titling this article “Snakes on a Skank”; that just seemed too mean spirited even for a story about a Tara Reid killer snake flick. I could have also gone the “Tara Reid Develops Viper Rash” route which I’m sure Johnny Butane would have appreciated…

The movie is Vipers and not only does it feature the unbeatable combination of drunken party girl extraordinaire Tara Reid and the prolific but never picky Corbin Bernsen, this nature gone amok flick comes to us from the writer of Scarecrow Gone Wild and the director of Left Behind II: Tribulation Force. That’s a hell of a pedigree.

“When some genetically enhanced vipers are released during a break-in at a medical research laboratory, it results in plenty of slithery problems in this terror tale. As the sinister snakes eat everything in their path and reproduce at an alarming rate, a group of locals trapped in a hotel on an isolated island tries to escape.”

Whether or not Tara Reid has once again been miscast as a scientist – we all remember how well that worked out in Uwe Boll’s Alone in the Dark – remains to be seen. What can be said right now is that neither Reid nor Bernsen appear to be the actual stars of the flick. IMDB lists working actor Jonathan Scarfe and “Stargate: Atlantis”‘ Claire Rankin as the primary actors. Other co-stars include “Stargate SG-1″‘s Don S. Davis and Jessica Steen, who also has also appeared on “Stargate SG-1”.

I first reported on Vipers “>this past December, back when there wasn’t much info about the production. Actually, there’s still not a whole lot of info out there. Production stills, trailers, production information, celeb sites reporting gossip of Tara Reid supposedly showing up late and hung-over to the film’s set: you can find more about the latter online than you can the first three.

The new info that has been announced and is the reason for this article is Movies Unlimited listing Vipers as slithering its way onto DVD shelves come September 23rd. What company is releasing it – not listed. Extras, if any – not listed. Box art: currently unavailable. I can tell you that the suggested retail price is $14.99. If you ask me, $15 bucks isn’t asking too much to see Tara Reid possibly get eaten by snakes?

I’ll keep you posted.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
