A Nightmare On MTV Street

Sunday, February 15th, 2009 by Sterf -

A Nightmare On MTV Street    freddy krueger 251x300 news The new remake of Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm Street will be directed by Samuel Bayer, the music video director responsible for the famous Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit clip. According to IMDb the film’s due for 2010, and the writer is Wesley Strick from movies such as Cape Fear & Arachnaphobia.

At Risky Biz Blog they say about the movie thusly: “Unlike other reboots of classic horror franchises, which synthesize plotlines from several films, this one, insiders said, will feature a strong element of the first picture, in which Krueger famously began haunting teenagers’ dreams, attacking them violently in their subconscious in ways that resulted in their real-life deaths.

A director who previously only directed music videos seems like a bit of a strange choice to direct a horror movie, but there you have it.

Albino’s and Pig People

Friday, February 20th, 2009 by Sterf -

Albinos and Pig People   albino news No, not in the same flick. Just reporting that soon two new movies will be coming out that sound kinda interesting.

First one being The Pig People which deals with, you guessed it, pig people and stars with such names as Master P. and Lil’ Romeo. I’m not sure I’m supposed to know these names, but I’m more interested in the pigs mutant folk. The plot involves haunted forests, half human half swine mutants, and of course a group of unsuspecting students.

The other flick is called Albino Farm and is about a community of redneck genetically mutated albino’s and what seems to be a must in movies involving mutants, a group of unsuspecting students of course. Coming to a North-American DVD near you somewhere this year.

Which makes me think a movie combining the two might be not a bad idea. Albino Redneck Mutants vs The Pig People (and a group of unsuspecting students) definately sounds like something I’d want to watch.

bad biology coming to dvd

Saturday, February 21st, 2009 by Sterf -

Bad Biology coming to DVD   badbiology poster 150x150 news The story of a nymphomaniac’s search for sexual fulfillment. A nymphomaniac with 7 clits, that is. Lots of gore and nudity to be expected, and coming to DVD in the UK on March 2nd. From director Frank Henenlotter, who directed such movies as Basket Case, Brain Damage and Frankenhooker.

While deformed genital horror was already done in the movie Teeth(reviewed here), this one seems more focused on actual horror (and not to forget, more nudity).

Plot goes like this: “Driven by biological excess, a young man and woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other’s existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in an explosive and ultimately over-the-top sexual experience, resulting in a truly godawful love story…. With bizarre special effects by Gabe Bartalos, a hip-hop soundtrack from Prince Paul, and shot in glorious 35mm, BAD BIOLOGY is guaranteed to shock even the most desensitized of audiences, and sure to become a modern cult classic.”

Check out the trailer and lots of pictures by clicking more.

Blacula   blacula dvd1 84x120 reviews horror DirectorWilliam Crain

Release Year1972

He’s a baaaaad muther-biter.

African Prince Mamuwalde (William Marshall) and his bride Luva (Vonetta McGee) visit Count Dracula (Charles Macaulay) to ask him to help them end slavery. Dracula thinks the Prince’s idea a really funny one and offers to buy Luva instead. When Prince Mamuwalde objects to this, Dracula bites him and chains his wife to the wall to teach him a lesson. Many centuries later, the contents of Dracula’s castle are sold and ‘Blacula’ is transported to the U.S. in his coffin.

Because, naturally, no one would look inside a heavy coffin before shipping it overseas….

First Film With the Amazing New Wonder EMERGO: The Thrills Fly Right Into The Audience!

The above tagline refers to the special gimmick that was used in the theatre when it was first released. At the right time in the film, a plastic skeleton was flown over the audience as if it came out of the movie, effectively breaking the ‘fourth wall’. Or as they described it: “The Amazing New Emergo! The ghost emerges right off the screen and actually SOARS into the audience!“.

Man-Thing

Man Thing   man thing1 81x120 reviews horror DirectorBrett Leonard
WriterHans Rodionoff based on a character by Steve Gerber
Release Year2005

Keep your man-thing to yourself please, there are ladies present.

Oil tycoon Frederic Schist (Jack Thompson) has opened an oil platform in some sacred Indian swamp and people have begun disappearing, including the sheriff. The new sheriff, Kyle Williams (Matthew Le Nevez) and school teacher / environmental protester Teri Elizabeth Richards (Rachael Taylor) try to stop it, despite all the victims being standard-issue rednecks. Killing rednecks is a public service, and I resent anyone trying to slow or halt this necessary work….
