Voodoo Possession (2014)

Aiden departs with a television film crew to uncover the truth about a group of missing patients at a remote hospital in Haiti, only to find out that his brother has gone missing along with the others, and that they may all have fallen under the spell of a voodoo curse. Now, Aiden must enter the spirit world if he hopes to help his brother and defeat the ancient evil that is holding him captive. Writer/Director Walter Boholst has high aspirations for this underwhelming feature, which starts off slow, and only manages to lose further momentum along with way. The convoluted storyline pulls the audience in many different directions, and none of them are overly interesting. When it is discovered that Aiden's brother has been sucked into the spirit world, Aiden must then work backwards through his own memories in order to free him. This leaves the audience wading through one melodramatic vignette after another despite the fact that none of them have anything to do with voodoo, whatsoever. The final confrontation between Aiden and the evil voodoo spirit is just laughable considering the serious tone of the picture, bringing to mind the sheer ridiculousness that can be found at the end of ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE. VOODOO POSSESSION is one curse that you do not want to fall under.

Rating: 5/10.

Anchor Bay Films and Troma Entertainment announce exclusive
New York and Los Angeles theatrical engagements in January 2014

LOS ANGELES, CA - December 27, 2013 - Anchor Bay Films and Troma Entertainment proudly announce that RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL.1, the film that marks the return of Lloyd Kaufman to the director’s chair and kicks off Troma Entertainment’s 40th Anniversary celebration, will have exclusive theatrical engagements in New York and Los Angeles starting in January 2014. Read on for the complete list of venues!

Exclusive Theatrical Engagements:
January 10th – Village East Cinemas, 189 2nd Ave, New York.
January 17th – Laemmle’s NoHo 7 Theaters, 5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood

Q&As with Lloyd Kaufman and cast & crew will be take place at both NY and LA locations, with exact dates and times TBA. With its inclusion in the NY Museum of Modern Art’s “The Contenders 2013” film series (Lloyd shares the same roster with such directorial luminaries as David Lynch, Sofia Coppola, the Coen Brothers and Woody Allen), and recently named “People’s Choice Award for Film of the Year” at the Bizarre Atlantic City festival, RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL. 1 is Lloyd Kaufman’s latest Tromasterpiece. A hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi event film with themes ripped straight from today's headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world's food supply, rampant bullying and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film -- a revisiting of Troma's 1986 Class of Nuke 'Em High -- is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock 'n' Roll High School and Carrie, but it's seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team.

Welcome to Tromaville High School, where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters, but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?

Come celebrate Troma’s 40 years of creating some of the most revered – and reviled – films of all time!

Big Ass Spider (2013)

Director Mike Mendez delivers another immensely entertaining Horror Comedy in the aptly-named BIG ASS SPIDER! When the military loses control of a genetically-altered arachnid, it is up to a skilled exterminator and his hapless new assistant to stop the creature before it destroys all of Los Angeles! Gregory Gieras injects a venomous wit into the script, which is brought to life by Greg Grunberg and Lombardo Boyar through their colorful performances. This dynamic duo manages to crank up the laughs with their impeccable comedic timing and over-the-top antics. Ray Wise is just as enjoyable as Major Braxton Tanner, playing up the severity of the situation with his deadpan performance to maximize the film's clever camp value. Mendez keeps the action moving at an electrifying pace, while striking an even balance between the explosive on screen insanity and the constant flow of comedy. This is the giant monster movie done right, making up for the countless other killer spider movies that have come out since EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS. BIG ASS SPIDER brings big ass laughs back to the small screen.

Rating: 7/10.

The Lords of Salem (2012)

Rob Zombie takes us on a trip back to the Supernatural 70s in his latest film, THE LORDS OF SALEM. Salem's local radio host becomes the unwitting victim of an ancient coven of witches as they attempt to draw her into their dark rituals. THE LORDS OF SALEM immediately brings to mind films like THE SENTINEL or Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA, minus any discernible sense of style. As always, Zombie relies far too heavily on shocking imagery and gratuitous violence over an attempt at cohesive storytelling. The symbolism and religious iconography are lost on the viewer, and lack true explanation. We are simply expected to accept the supernatural elements of the plot without any reason or meaning behind them. Judy Geeson, Meg Foster, and Dee Wallace are wasted in the film as the unholy coven, while Bruce Davison gives an unusually bad performance, as well. Sheri Moon Zombie simply isn't cut out for the lead, as she sleepwalks through most of her role. THE LORDS OF SALEM asks too much of its audience without giving them anything in return, which makes it a difficult sell.

Rating: 6/10.

Hatchet III (2013)

No need for a critical response. HATCHET III is terrible, and it is somehow even worse than the last. Clearly, Adam Green and the gang think they are better than the people that actually watch and rate their films, because they absolutely refuse to accept criticism or try to make a decent, watchable Horror movie. Instead, they tape as many offensively bad Horror movie cliches together into what is easily one of the worst Slasher sequels that has ever been made. Even the gore has suffered in this latest sequel, and it is not worth sitting through the painful performances for a few mediocre effects. At least the 1980s delivered characters that we liked and inventive ways to off teenagers. HATCHET III only manages to drag the series even further into the swamp. It is an embarrassment to Horror fans.

Antisocial (2013)

When terror strikes a small college town, five friends are forced to barricade themselves inside their home, but what they fail to realize is that the ravaging disease that is spreading outside their door has made its way inside through media contact. ANTISOCIAL is a good Horror movie. It is a really good Horror movie. Director Cody Calahan and co-writer Chad Archibald have tackled a modern concern over social media's effect on communication and human interaction in a tactful yet biting social commentary that is subtle enough to avoid alienating fans of outright shock and terror. This is achieved simply by demonstrating the inescapable effect that smart phones, tablets, and personal computers have over our daily lives. What if a virus was to spread through the use of one of these devices? Think of the devastation. This brilliant premise quickly brings to mind 2008's breakthrough feature, PONTYPOOL, which dealt with a similar means of transmission through audio interference, as well as the claustrophobic thriller, RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR. Calahan's only misstep is projecting the hallucinations onto the screen, which adds an unnecessary supernatural element to an otherwise minimalist effort. At times, the survival aspect also supersedes the psychological terror, as well, but that does not distract from the overall success of the film. The keen editing techniques that are used to tie social media into the plot only work to further enhance the theme. ANTISOCIAL should serve as a wake-up call to the hand-held generation, and lives up to the filmmakers' original intent.

Rating: 7/10.

XLrator Media Signs 'The Scribbler'!

XLRATOR MEDIA GOES MENTAL FOR
THE SCRIBBLER

From the author of the original graphic novel

U.S. Release Planned for Fall 2014

LOS ANGELES, CA - December 22, 2013 - XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the sci-fi action-thriller THE SCRIBBLER, starring Katie Cassidy (Arrow), Michelle Trachtenberg (Gossip Girl), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse), Gina Gershon (Bound), Sasha Grey, Garret Dillahunt (Winter’s Bone, The Road), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Billy Campbell (The Killing). XLrator Media will release the film in theaters in Fall 2014. THE SCRIBBLER follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using "The Siamese Burn," an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being "cured," she's haunted by a thought... what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?

“Combining cool sci-fi elements with ass-kicking action from a cast of hot and talented actresses, The Scribbler captures the mind-bending, anarchistic spirit of the original graphic novel and brings it thrillingly to the big screen,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

The film from New Artists Alliance is directed by John Suits and written by Daniel Schaffer, who also penned and illustrated the original 2006 graphic novel on which the film is based. The film is produced by NAA’s Gabriel Cowan and Ken F. Levin of NightSky Productions and is executive produced by Kerry Johnson as well as Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller of Caliber Media. This is the fifth major sale this year for New Artists Alliance including SXSW hit BAD MILO! and SXSW Audience Award Winner CHEAP THRILLS.

"New Artists Alliance have pulled off a remarkable adaptation, staying true to the themes of the graphic novel while adding a wealth of visual treats I never even thought of. Fans of the book won’t be disappointed. Fans of Katie Cassidy may actually pee themselves when they get a load of her performance as Suki,” said Daniel Schaffer.

The deal was negotiated by Barry Gordon and Mike Radiloff on behalf of XLrator Media and Traction Media on behalf of the filmmakers.

Blood Diner (1987)

Jackie Kong, director of the 1983 cult-classic THE BEING, presents BLOOD DINER, an unofficial sequel to H.G. Lewis' splatter picture BLOOD FEAST in which two brothers belonging to an ancient Lumerian cult open up a chic new diner downtown, where they serve up the locals in a variety of tasty dishes in order to prepare for a carnal blood buffet that they will use to resurrect their goddess Shitar! This zany, off-the-wall Horror Comedy has seemingly been forgotten in the two decades since its release, but its hilarious mixture of slapstick humor and comic gore makes it one of the most entertaining and under-appreciated films of its kind. Following the example set by THE TOXIC AVENGER years earlier, BLOOD DINER contains a number of outrageous deaths, including one where a bouncer has his head crushed in by a passing low-rider, and another where a woman has her head deep-fried before it is knocked off with a broom, while several other characters are impaled by stalactites, run over repeatedly, lopped in half with meat cleavers, or slaughtered in the ravenous bloodbath in the end! It manages to walk the fine line between camp and typical 80's cheese, coming out on top thanks to Kong's smart handling of the material and spirited directing, as well as the animated performances given by each of the cast members (including the tasteless humor of Uncle Anwar's disembodied brain). BLOOD DINER is an ultimate guilty pleasure, and a real treat for fans of 80's trash!

Rating: 7/10.

Blood Feast 2 (2002)

Nearly 40 years after the release of their ground-breaking splatter film BLOOD FEAST, Herschell Gordon Lewis and producer David Friedman dissolved past differences and came together to produce this quasi-remake of their own cult-classic. Fuad Ramses III has returned to take over his grandfather's old catering business, but after becoming possessed by the ancient statue of Ishtar in the backroom, he sets off on a vicious murder spree to gather the necessary ingredients he will need in order to throw another Egyptian blood feast! Thanks to the advent of home video and unrated film releases in recent years, Lewis has been given a free pass to include as much mindless violence and gratuitous nudity that he can come up with. To say that he has outdone the original BLOOD FEAST in the sheer amount of gore would be a gross understatement. On top of a few familiar kills that have been carried over from the first film, the younger Fuad scoops out girls' eyeballs, removes their intestines, grinds their hands and arms into pate, scoops out their brains, and peels off their faces before things really start to get ugly! With the exception of FEAST, few films in recent years have even come close in the gore department. Not surprisingly, the unimaginable amount of splatter is the only thing worth noting in this otherwise mindless spoof. Lewis' directing style has hardly improved in the last three decades, and his choices for the new cast, while nice to look at, are beyond terrible. The one exception would be in the overstated performance by unknown J.P. Delahoussaye, who brings back much of the classic camp to the picture. John Waters also sneaks in a brief cameo as the pedophilic priest set to marry the unfortunate couple in the end. While much of the humor falls flat in this unintelligible remake, gore fans cannot afford to miss what could be H.G. Lewis' last gore opus!

Rating: 5/10.

Gore: 10/10.

Mark and Jerry return to the HMPod.com Horror Movie Podcast with Episode #128, featuring Thor: The Dark World, Xmas Evil, The Children, Caesar & Otto’s Deadly Xmas, The 12 Disasters of Xmas, The Hobbit 1 extended!


Who is screaming inside the chimney?

Seasoned greedings to one & all! A very jolly ho-ho-ho to all our overstuffed listeners this fine Yule week. And for those who don’t celebrate Xmas, let us here at The Horror Movie Show say only this: Santa loves you too.

This week, your turkey-ridden hosts Mark & Jerry explore the big-screen version of Thor: The Dark World. Is it as good as the first Thor movie? Is it worse? Is it the same movie with a different title? (No, of course not.) Listen in for the gut-stuffed review.

We now move into the Xmas horror part of our seasonal spectacular, beginning with the far-from-venerable Christmas Evil, costarring a young & hysterical Jeffrey DeMunn. Next up is The Children, about an extended family who comes together & then comes apart because of very, very naughty children at Xmastime. Third, Jerry & Mark try to overcome their stomach upset as they gag over Caesar & Otto’s Deadly Xmas. Finally, yet another of those odious Syfy movies, this one from last year titled The 12 Disasters of Xmas — the story of how Mayans hid clues to saving the planet all around some northern U.S. town that hadn’t yet been considered. Ho ho, say what?

The guys wrap this show with a few comments on the extended version of the first in the Hobbit series of movies by Peter Jackson & gang. Expect a review of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in the near future. But for now, we here at The Horror Movie Show wish you a lovely holiday, with love & modest excitement. Cheers… and where’s the Pepto?

Millennium Ent. Delivers 'Hell Baby' This December!

Available on DVD & Blu-ray™
December 31, 2013
LOS ANGELES, CA - December 18, 2013 - The moment Jack (Rob Corddry) and his pregnant wife Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) move into their ramshackle New Orleans starter home, they realize something isn’t right. First an overly friendly guy living in the crawl space (Keegan Michael Key) informs them the house has been the scene of multiple murders. Then a naked old lady appears out of nowhere and sexually assaults a confused Jack—who fights her off, apparently killing her. Soon Vanessa starts exhibiting odd behaviors: smoking, drinking paint-thinner and occasionally speaking in a deep, guttural voice. But even after her new therapist is found crucified in his office, no one suspects that the thing growing in Vanessa’s belly may have something to do with the house’s dark legacy—or the increasing chaos around them. When a pair of inept detectives (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer) fails to solve the mystery, it falls to two seasoned exorcists dispatched by the Vatican (Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon). But even these hardnosed priest-enforcers aren’t prepared for the mayhem that lies in store as Vanessa’s due date arrives.

Written and directed by Thomas Lennon (“Sean Saves the World”, Night at the Museum, Reno 911!: Miami) and Ben Garant (“Reno 911!”, Night at the Museum, Reno 911!: Miami) HELL BABY marks the comedy duo’s co-directing debut. HELL BABY stars Leslie Bibb (Iron Man 2, Movie 43), Rob Corddry (The Way Way Back, Pain & Gain), Michael Ian Black (This is 40, Reno 911!), Riki Lindhome (Million Dollar Baby, HBO's "Enlightened") Paul Scheer (FX's "The League," Bride Wars), and Rob Huebel (The Descendants, Celeste & Jesse Forever).

Podcast Playlist: HMPOD.com #127

Mark and Jerry return to the HMPod.com Horror Movie Podcast with Episode #127, featuring Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Eyes without a Face, Outpost III, Funny Games, 13: Game of Death, and The Walking Dead!


Foreign fare & more Walking Dead!

A jolly good day to all our listeners (both of you). We are only slightly ashamed to bring you another episode of The Horror Movie Show, featuring your gloriously obtuse hosts Mark & Jerry.

While the boys begin this week’s reviews with an arrow through the neck of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, most of the movies in this extra-long episode are more-or-less foreign films — unless you live in one of those countries, in which case we send greetings from our own exotic locale.

Eyes without a Face is a 1959 French feature. This movie didn’t invent the surgical horror genre, but it remains one of the best of that kind. Following that is Outpost III: Rise of the Spetsnaz, a new flick out of the U.K. The German laugh-riot Funny Games (1997) is next. This one was recently remade for an American audience, but the original — often the case — is the real deal. Final feature reviewed is 13: Game of Death, a Thai movie from 2006.

With the eighth episode of The Walking Dead now behind us, Jerry & Mark roll up their frayed sleeves & muck in, sorting through the cold but still-twitching body-parts in an attempt to make sense of our favourite TV series. There are spoilers, so be warned. The two-month hiatus before further new episodes can be tough on some of us, so let’s be careful out there.

PHILADELPHIA, PA - December 18, 2013 - Breaking Glass Pictures and Shoreline Entertainment are pleased to announce the February 7th North American theatrical release of 7 Boxes, the debut film from the directing team of Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schembori.

Crossing the eight blocks of the market seemed easy but things get complicated along the way. There is something in those boxes that starts a high-speed wheelbarrow chase in the secret and gloomy corridors of the market. Without even realizing, Víctor and his pursuers will get involved in a crime of which they know anything:


7 Boxes will open in cities across the United States and Canada starting on February 7th, anchored by screenings in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto. On the same date, the film will be available nationwide on iTunes and on Demand.

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006)

Mandy Lane is the high school heartthrob that all the boys want to be with, but obsession and competition flares when Mandy accepts an invitation to a party out at a remote farmhouse. It isn't long before many of the teens start to meet a horrible demise, but who could be behind the murderous rampage? Jonathan Levine's acclaimed slasher film toys with audience expectations, and delivers a retro style with many modern twists. Amber Heard stars as the blonde beauty, Mandy Lane, who is strong, sharp, and sensible in the face of her hormone-fueled friends. After a lengthy introduction to the characters, the first excruciating kill comes as quite the surprise, along with the incredible amount of blood. From here, it is fast-paced action and violence until the film's shocking finale. ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE is a refreshing twist on many of the standard conventions, but it is still not the incredible game-changer that it has often made out to be.

Rating: 7/10.

Sanitarium (2013)

SANITARIUM takes us back to the days of the Amicus Horror anthology, bringing to mind other such classics as ASYLUM, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, THE VAULT OF HORROR, and TORTURE GARDEN. The film features three vignettes, each of which center around a different patient within the walls of the Dr. Stenson's sanitarium. The first tale tells of a tortured artist who becomes increasingly paranoid that his friends are out to steal his fame and fortune. As his delusions evolve into outright hysteria, Gustav realizes that the only way to stop them is to take matters into his own hands. In the next segment, a young boy manifests a monstrous demon to help him deal with his abusive father. Finally, an obsessive Ancient Cultures professor locks himself into a bomb shelter in anticipation of the coming apocalypse, but the spirits of those he's left behind come back to haunt him.

Bryan Ortiz Bryan Ramirez, and Kerry Valderrama have done some really fine work bringing this omnibus feature together. All three entries are evenly balanced, thoughtful, and engaging to the viewer. The film is superiorly cast, as well, with standout performances by John Glover, Lou Diamond Phillips, and young David Mazouz. Each narrative is fully fleshed out to give a sense of completeness, while they still fit neatly into the framework of the overarching story. One minor complaint would be that the segments did, at times, feel padded out, and adding a fourth story by editing down the other three may have only improved upon the pace. Overall, this is a very strong and worthwhile effort for any fans of the format.

Cassadaga (2011)

Lily mistakenly awakens a restless spirit during a seance, which forces her to help uncover the mystery behind the young woman's death if she ever hopes to leave Cassadaga. CASSADAGA falls closely in line with STIR OF ECHOES and other similar supernatural thrillers involving ghostly revenge. Unfortunately, it does very little to stray from the standard conventions of the genre, and it does not provide a single compelling character to drive the mystery or intrigue. Director Anthony DiBlasi relies on a few foreseeable twists to serve as the greatest shock value, while the final revelation of the killer couldn't be any more arbitrary to the plot. The only successful moments come when Lily envisions herself being eaten alive by maggots, and when the killer's human marionette is finally unveiled. From a technical standpoint, the film is adequately acted and nicely shot, it just isn't overly interesting in the end.

Rating: 6/10.

Louisa Krause Gets Caught in 'The Confines'

Louisa Krause, Jason Patric, 
and Mark Margolis To Star in

THE CONFINES

A film by Eytan Rockaway

NEW YORK, NY - December 14, 2013 - Mike Landry and Carlos Velazquez, of C Plus Pictures announced today Louisa Krause (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys, My Sister’s Keeper), and Mark Margolis (The Wrestler, Breaking Bad), will star in the psychological thriller “The Confines” written by Ido Fluk and directed by Eytan Rockaway. The film was formerly known as “Lot 451” and marks Rockaway’s feature film directorial debut. Shooting just wrapped in New York. Mike Landry and Carlos Velazquez produced the film along with Co-Producers Ryan Charles Griffin and Claudia Bellante, and Executive Producers Allen Loeb, Jeff Hoffman, and Luigi Ghilardi II. Arclight Film’s Clay Epstein will handle international sales and Traction Media’s Maren Olsen and CAA’s Nick Ogiony will handle North American sales.

THE CONFINES is set in an enormous residential complex equipped with all of the modern amenities you'd expect in luxury living except one thing...residents. Amidst a recession, the shops and rooms have all been abandoned and the underbelly of the building has been left to decay. The story takes place over one night where JULIA STREAK (Louisa Krause), a struggling single mother, works as a security guard for the corporation that owns the structure, along with her brusque, rent a cop partner, COOPER (Jason Patric). As the night progresses, the building, Cooper, and a vagrant in the area (Mark Margolis) toy with Streak sadistically. Streak's curiosity to find the truth leads her on a dangerous path into the depths of the building, where she becomes trapped in the dark catacombs of the structure and her sanity is terrorized. Eventually, Julia must face her self as the complex demands that all who enter these grounds pay the ultimate price for admission into THE CONFINES.

“The Confines is that special convergence where a genre piece is elevated by the director’s vision along with great acting to make a truly haunting psychological thriller. We’re thrilled to be a part of it coming off the success of THE LIFEGUARD last year.” – Mike Landry
