One film we're looking forward to checking out is Richard Griffin's Exhumed, which has a real retro vibe thanks to its black & white palette, and if you happen to live in or near Foxboro, Massachusetts, you can beat us to the punch when the flick premieres on November 11th. In honor of the occasion the filmmakers have sent us a trio of new stills to share.
It's been a while since we've gotten an update on Exhumed, a uniquely original vision of horror written by Guy Benoit (Atomic Brain Invasion), produced by Ted Marr (The Disco Exorcist), and directed by Richard Griffin (Nun of That); but that's all about to change. Today we have for you the film's new poster and trailer along with a couple of stills.
Earlier this year we told you about Exhumed, a uniquely original vision of horror written by Guy Benoit (Atomic Brain Invasion), produced by Ted Marr (The Disco Exorcist), and directed by Richard Griffin (Nun of That). This week Scorpio Film Releasing dropped us a line to let us know the film has wrapped production and provided us with three new stills.
While we had heard 2009: Mutants of the Apocalypse was going to be the next project for Scorpio Film Releasing, it turns out that instead they're moving forward with Exhumed, a uniquely original vision of horror written by Guy Benoit (Atomic Brain Invasion), produced by Ted Marr (The Disco Exorcist), and directed by Richard Griffin (Nun of That).
It's been a while since we've heard anything from the folks behind The Disco Exorcist, but as proof that good things come to those who wait, today we have the film's poster debut along with details on its February 12th premiere in Providence, Rhode Island. From the Press Release:
Scorpio Film Releasing has announced that its next production, and most ambitious to date, will be the feature film 2009: Mutants of the Apocalypse, a unique look at a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by outlandishly deformed mutants, ruthlessly violent gangs, corruptible leaders, wasteland temptresses, and the most badass antihero in movie history: Python Diamond.
Stories like this one are why I love writing for Dread Central. Where else could we learn about a movie called The Disco Exorcist?!? From the Press Release:
B-movie mania is about to go into hyper-drive as the trailer for Richard Griffin's The Atomic Brain Invasion indicates, and if you're anything like us, you're about to be looking forward to every single silly second of it!
Regular Dread Central readers know how deathly afraid of nuns our Uncle Creepy is so I thought I'd shield him from his fears and do this write-up for him. If nun nudity, nun profanity, and most of all, nun violence are your things, then you'll definitely want to keep reading!
Though I’d love to tell you guys that Richard Griffin’s Lovecraft sequelization, Beyond the Dunwich Horror, will be available in Best Buys throughout the country very soon, that would be a blatant lie. And I’m trying really hard to stop lying so damn much. But the good news is you can still pick up the film right now with a quick trip to Scorpio Film Releasing!
Scorpio Film Releasing is proud to announce that Richard Griffin's Beyond the Dunwich Horror will be screening on Friday, June 13th, at 11:59 PM in the Cable Car Cinema.
You know, when reporting the news, it's sometimes wise to let images do the talking rather than words. This is one of those times.
Personally I can’t say if Beyond the Dunwich Horror is going to be a worthwhile Lovecraft adaptation, but the makers sure did get one thing right so far; they commissioned Shock Festival (pre-order it here) author/artist/screenwriter Stephen Romano to make their pos
Now here's a movie after my own heart - Creature from the Hillbilly Lagoon. A group of college students run afoul of a band of inbred rednecks, but making matters worse is the gillman monster spawned from toxic waste dumped into a nearby lagoon. Expect plenty of cheap, cheesy, gory, gooey, rubber-suited fishman on a rampage action. They don't make enough movies of this ilk for my take, and when they do they're usually of the Rana, The Legend of Shadow Lake variety.
