In his first post Harry Potter role Daniel Radcliffe is going horror in a remake of a British made for tv film. The trailer looks kind of creepy but I’m really digging this poster. What did they see? Why are their eyes scratched out? Who dresses their kids like that? We’ll find out soon enough…

Check out this cool trailer for Juan of the Dead, a Cuban made zombie movie that looks to be heavily influenced by both the early works of George Romero as well as the more modern Shaun of the Dead form Edgar Wright. Cuba’s first horror film was Written and directed by Alejandro Bruges and takes place 50 years after the Cuban Revolution, where the island is overrun by zombies the government swears were sent by the United States. Look for this at this years Austin Film Festival.
Fear.net delivers another in it’s series of public services announcements letting us know that schools back in and Halloween is just around the corner. If you enjoyed Trick’rTreat then you should definitely check this short film.
A creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year with five tales set on Halloween night: suburban couple learns the lessons of blowing out a jack-o-lantern before midnight; a high school principal moonlights as a serial killer; the quest of a young virgin for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank; and a cantankerous old man battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.
There are rumors running wild about the next Friday the 13th film that could either save this franchise or kill it off for good. Shocktilyoudrop.com is reporting that the producers of the film are taking a long hard look at producing a found footage version of the film that could totally change the way we see the slasher horror. Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes who partially owns the rights to the Friday the 13th name is quoted as saying there has been no movement on the film as of late but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t being developed behind the scenes. I personally would welcome a change to the series and think this would be an interesting new take on Jason killing campers but then again, I love found footage movies and F13 movies so it’s a win-win situation for me.
We posted the Austrailian teaser featuring the audiences reaction last week to THC 2 and now we have the actually teaser for the film to check out. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the trailer they were watching in the reaction trailer as there’s not really a whole lot going here to draw such visceral reactions. We’ll get to check it out for ourselves when it hits theaters October 7, 2011.
Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil is one of my favorite movies of the year and is certainly worthy of being picked up when it hits Blu-Ray on Nov. 28th 2011. Here’s a very cool poster from MTV.com that was created for the film that really does a great job capturing the fun and over the top horror humor that makes Tucker and Dale one of the most original releases of the year.
There’s a common qualifier that goes along with seeing most low budget movies, especially low budget horror movies and that’s the old adage that “it was really good for a low budget movie”. It’s a way of saying a movie was OK, but it could have been better if they had spent more money on an actual sound person or had they actually paid someone to edit it instead of letting the only guy they know that has the software to do it for a copy of the DVD. It’s not an adage I particularly buy into as I try to judge each movie on it’s own merit but “Insidious” is definitely a movie that some people are either praising or damning based solely on the budget. I say without a doubt, this is one of the creepiest movies I’ve seen in a long time compared to any movie of any budget.
Insidious is a ghost story, pure and simple. It’s the story of an average family who begins to experience supernatural occurrences shortly after their son is injured and left in an unresponsive, coma like state.It starts with a few bumps in the attic, a creepy door opening on it’s own, and some incredible tension and runs with it. Before long the family is experiencing full blown apparitions who are not even trying to hide the fact that they are there. They want you to see them and they want you to be scared. After speaking with a ghost expert of sorts it becomes apparent what the ghost’s really want and that is to inhabit the body of the child in the coma. I could tell you more but than might spoil what I felt was an awesome roller coaster ride of scares and surprises.
One of the complaints that I have heard from people regarding this movie is actually one of the things that I feel they did better than 90 percent of horror movies out there and that is the use of the jump scare. You know, that part of the movie when it gets really quiet and the tension is high and your on the edge of your seat when suddenly some spooky music blares out right as a cat jumps out of a trash can. In “Insidious” there are plenty of scenes that do that very thing only there are no cats jumping out in this move. Every scare is genuine, never letting you off the hook once they have you on it.
The cast is solid, Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne are both believable as parents put in a terrible situation, trying with all their might just to keep it together for the sake of their children. My two favorite characters were Specs and Tucker played by Leigh Whannel and Angus Sampson as part of a team of ghost experts who investigate the house. They were the “comic relief” portion of the movie, raising the spirits just enough that when the next scare hit it was all the more impactful.
Is is a perfect movie? Of course not. The CGI ghosts were shoddy at times, the kid actors were a bit stiff and I don’t know if it was just my theater but the image was terribly dark which at times made it hard to see everything that was going. If your looking for a movie to keep you up at night and make you think than this is the movie for you. Check out “Insidious” this weekend and have a good scare, you just might like it…

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to take a look at some of the talented comic writers and artists we spent time with at Staple-Austin over the past weekend. We had a great time meeting and interviewing these guys and girls and want to give you a chance to check out some of their work.
Monica Gallagher is a talented comic writer and artist that just happens to be a super nice lady. She also makes awesome horror heroine portraits. You can check out her work and find more info about her at www.eatyourlipstick.com.
See her super long bio from her website below the interview we did with her at Staple…
Monica Gallagher is a graphic designer during the daylight hours and a comicker at night. While an animation major in college, Monica first tiptoed onto the comics scene with her webcomic Gods & Undergrads, following the awkward adventures of a girl transitioning into college life while simultaneously discovering her connection to Greek gods. Once her eyes had been opened to the online comics scene, Monica couldn’t help herself and continued to produce more work.
A short stint in amateur modeling led Monica to create both an autobiographical story dealing with her struggles with self-esteem (titled Boobage) and a fictional series dealing with a professional model who works part-time as an assassin (titled Lipstick & Malice). In 2010, she chronicled her experiences modeling in her autobio When I Was A Mall Model. Luckily, Monica emerged from modeling with both her boobs and her criminal record intact. She then discovered something else to become obsessed with and inspired by — Roller Derby. Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five is the result of her inspiration — a weekly webcomic that combines the superhero side of being a rollergirl with the Clark Kent side of working a day job. Monica just completed her first season as a member of the Junkyard Dolls, one of the four teams of lovely ladies of the Charm City Roller Girls. Sadly, she’s currently on a break from derby at the moment due to time constraints, but you better believe she’s still out there skating!
Recently, Monica contributed to Oni Press’s Roller Derby Anthology JAM! Tales from the World of Roller Derby which was released on June 23, 2010. She is currently working on illustrating a full-length graphic novel for Oni.
Monica continues to create short stories, contribute to anthologies, and tackle illustration work from her home in Baltimore, where she lives with her boyfriend and their dueling cats. Check out her blog for the latest dirt – you never know where she’ll pop up next!
A few years ago I stumbled across the small spanish horror movie [REC]. It was a verite style horror movie, filmed from various helmet cameras and television cameras to capture the action taking place in a small apartment complex as a zombie/demon/rabies outbreak happened. It was awesome, I loved it, I couldn’t wait to see the sequel [REC] 2 when it was announced and I was not dissappointed when I did see it. Now I’m equally excited to see that they are moving forward with two more films that will fill in the gaps between the first two films as well as spread the story to the world outside the apartment building. Let the awesomeness ensue…
Blooding-Disgusting has reported that Leticia Dolera has been cast alongside Diego Martin for [REC] Genesis. Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing duties for the final two films in the franchise,
There was a lot of hype and hyperbole leading up to Kevin Smith’s premiere of Red State at Sundance and all that quickly became an afterthought when Smith told Hollywood to go fuck itself and bought his own distribution right for 20$. Smith had announced earlier in the year that he would auction of the rights to his movie directly after the premiere and drew a ton of interest for what was sure to be a public spectacle and did not disappoint.
When can you see Red State? Well if you’re willing to shell out anywhere from
This episode on the new video series “VHS Hell with Matthew Jones” we look at XTRO, the best 1983 British Sci-Fi Movie to feature the eating of snakeeggs and face rape in a tentacle fashion ever! Unlike all those other 1983 British Sci-Fi Movies to feature the eating of snake eggs and face rape in a tentacle fashion, this one is enjoyable.
Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.
Check out this Italian poster for the upcoming Brandon Routh horror/comedy..
I like this poster, the trailer for the movie? Not so much. It does have a certain Buffy like charm to it and I like Routh but I dunno about this one.
In New Orleans, Dylan Dog is an ace detective whose specialty is paranormal cases. Now, he must deal with vampires, werewolves, zombies and a guardian of the Hell, due to a client’s case. With the help of Marcus Adams, his un-dead assistant, he will have to preserve the sake of the Earth.
Dead Of Night is directed by Kevin Monroe and hits theatres in Italy next March but doesn’t currently have a theatrical release date Stateside..or anywhere else for that matter.
