New Bio Slime Pictures   bioslime 285x300 news

The people over at Undead Backbrain have gotten hold of some new high quality pictures of the upcoming horror flick Bio Slime. Never heard of it myself, but since it apparantly involves slime, tentacles and naked chicks it can’t be that bad…

Any movie wherein the monster is some sort of sentient slime is fine in my book.

Go visit them to check out the pictures, or check the official website.

Pride and Predator

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 by Sterf

Pride and Predator   sir elton john news After the news that a movie called ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ was being made after the same-titled novel, now we hear that Elton John and David Furnish’s production company Rocket Pictures will make a movie called Pride and Predator… We’d say Jane Austen is probably turning in her grave, but we don’t want to give people ideas for a vampire Jane Austen movie.

The costume drama will this time be interrupted by bloodthirsty aliens instead of zombies, the word is still not out which one we think sounds best. We’ll wait for the trailers to decide.

Director will be Will Clarke who previously only made one shortfilm, albeit an award winning one, called The Amazing Trousers.

It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect” Furnish told Variety.

If this trend continues, next week Pride and Prejudice in Space Against Mutated Vampire Werewolve Killer Clowns.

If only more directors would work like that.

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.
