Slime City Massacre Lands a Premiere Date

Published

Writer/director Gregory Lamberson will add a special twist and a welcome scream to the 2010 Beloit International Film Festival when he returns to Beloit, WI, as the honorary Chair of the fifth annual BIFF, Feb. 18-21, 2010. Creator of the horror cult classic Slime City, which marked its 20th anniversary at BIFF in 2008, Lamberson will be on hand for the world debut of the recently completed sequel, Slime City Massacre.

Slime City Massacre Lands a Premiere Date at the Beloit International Film Festival

In a letter accepting the invitation to help promote the 2010 Festival, Lamberson noted that “I’d like to thank BIFF’s organizers for inviting me to share in this experience and all of the volunteers who work so hard to make this event a success. It’s my pleasure to welcome filmmakers and attendees to the Fifth Annual Beloit International Film Festival, and [it’s] a true honor to have been selected as this year’s honorary Chair.

Teaser Poster for Slime City MassacreIt was at BIFF 2008 where Lamberson conceived of the sequel and engaged other filmmakers in the project. He was struck by the “outpouring of support from the Beloit community and the appreciation it fostered among the visiting filmmakers. It was, quite honestly, the best festival I have attended. Slime City Massacre is a celebration of 1970s science fiction films, gooey 1980s horror films, and 1990s action films, held together by a sense of the world that could only exist in this decade. My goal was to make a fun film with a serious subtext and a lot of surprises.

Lamberson will be on hand at the launch party and at all the major events to welcome film lovers. Joining him will be members of the cast and production team. Some of those anticipated to be on hand are newcomer Jennifer Bihl as well as Debbie Rochon and Lee Perkins. The film also reunites Robert Sabin, who returns to BIFF, and Mary Bogle, stars of the original film, and features appearances by Roy Frumkes, who wrote and produced the cult classic Street Trash and Troma Entertainment founder Lloyd Kaufman along with Brooke Lewis.

Slime City Massacre (official site here) is set in the ruins of midtown Manhattan seven years after a dirty bomb decimates the financial district. Four squatters discover a supply of “Himalayan yogurt” and “Zachary Devon’s Home Brewed Elixir.” The concoctions turn each survivor into a slime oozing monster compelled to murder as they are possessed by the spirits of cultists who committed suicide decades earlier. Sabin appears as Zachary in flashbacks, and Bogle returns as her Slime character, now called “Swan.”

AHS 8 Will Be More Like ASYLUM and COVEN

Published

on

News has been steadily coming in regarding the upcoming 8th season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series American Horror Story. It was just the other day that we let you guys know that Billie Lourd will be back for the new season, which begins shooting this June.

And today we have word via Deadline regarding just what the tone will be for this new season, rumored to be titled AHS: Radioactive.

It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season,” Murphy said. “We’re sort of getting back to Asylum and Coven. That’s the tone of it.”

Personally, I really enjoyed the grounded tone of AHS: Cult and I think it helped rejuvenate the series. But then again, a return to the tone of perhaps the show’s most beloved season (AHS: Asylum) is just what the series needs in the long run.

Are you excited to hear AHS 8 will be going back to the tone of Asylum and Coven? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

AHS Season 8 stars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Kathy Bates, and new cast member Joan Collins, who will play Peters’ grandmother. Murphy has revealed he’s interested in casting Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family) as well.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Coming To Nintendo Switch In Japan This Week

Published

on

Although it’s already been home to a vast number of horror titles, the Nintendo Switch will finally come into the possession of the crown jewel of horror video games, as Capcom have confirmed that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be heading to the system on May 24. In Japan, at least.

Because of the limitations of the Switch hardware compared to both the PS4 and the Xbox One, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will only be playable by being streamed directly from Capcom’s online servers onto the physical console. Meaning that after the initial 45MB download, you’ll need to have an internet connection and be permanently online in order for it to work, so even though the Switch is a portable console hybrid, you unfortunately won’t be able to play Resident Evil 7 on the move.

In Japan, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will be known as Biohazard 7 Resident Evil Cloud Version, and will be priced at 2,000 yen (around $18). Once purchased, you’ll have access to the game for 180 days. There’s currently no word if you’ll be able to pay for a renewal once that time is up, or even if the Switch version will be released outside Japan, but Capcom have clearly come up with an ingenious solution to releasing more powerful games on less powerful systems, so we’re curious to see if their strategy of streaming games onto consoles catches on.
