Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort Out October 21st

 
Fox has just announced October 21st as the DVD/Blu-ray release date for the upcoming Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort, directed by some guy and starring some people. Sorry, I was attempting to be funny there, but I think my joke sounded a lot more dickish than I meant it to. Valeri Milev is the director and it stars Sadie Katz, Aqueela Zoll, Anthony Ilott, Chris Jarvis, Rollo Skinner, Billy Ashworth, Joe Gaminara, Harry Belcher, Raymond Steers, Luke Cousins, Tabitha Luke Eardley and Roxanne Pallett.



I've actually seen every one of these things and I've found that every even numbered sequel is pretty good (part 2 is pretty great, actually), while the odd numbered sequels have been just absolutely goddamn terrible. So, statistically speaking, part 6 should be decent. I've also noticed that the make-up effects on the "hillbillies" is getting worse and worse, Three Finger looks like a goddamn lizard in this one for some reason. For example:

Scream Factory has just posted the details for their upcoming release of Stuart Gordon's Dolls.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown Remake/Sequel Trailer Online Now

 
The trailer for the Town That Dreaded Sundown remake has made its way online. Though it shares the same title as the original film and is being called a remake, the plot description makes this sound like a sequel:

Based on a terrifying true story, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up sixty-five years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, when the "moonlight murders" begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching the murderer.

This sequel and/or remake (sequemake? requel?) looks to be more of a straight slasher film than the original which I'm okay with because the "slasher" parts of the original film are actually pretty intense and suspenseful and while this may be an unpopular opinion; I personally think the documentary voiceovers and the ill-fitting comedy really dragged the original film down. Sure, this could still totally suck ass, but it looks decent enough to me, I'll give it a look when it comes out October 16th. Check out the trailer below:

Fantastic Teaser For Puppet Ghost Story The Mill at Calder's End


Last year I posted about a Kickstarter campaign for filmmaker Kevin McTurk's Victorian Ghost Story Puppet Film. The Kickstarter was very successful (making double the original goal of $32,000) and from the looks of this new teaser what McTurk has put together here is absolutely stunning. I'm not sure when we'll get to see the completed film, but I cannot wait to see it.



The Mill At Calder's End - Official Teaser HD from Kevin McTurk on Vimeo.

"The Mill at Calder's End is a gothic ghost story in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft that will be told with 30 inch tall bunraku puppets and old fashioned in-camera special effects. Featuring the voices of Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,X-Men:First Class) and horror legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday,The Pit and the Pendulum) , this film celebrates two of my great loves: the art of puppetry and gothic horror."

    Final Specs For Nightbreed: The Director's Cut


    Scream Factory has finally posted the complete specs for their upcoming releases of Nightbreed: The Director's Cut. Read on below for the details and a word from Clive Barker:

Its 20 minutes longer than the theatrical cut, but it contains over 40 minutes of new and altered footage. Clive oversaw the reconstruction and edit himself, personally ensuring that, at long last, he was able to tell the story he always wanted to tell, but until now, had never been given the chance. Once the scenes were reordered, and the original film footage restored, the entire film received a brand new sound mix and color pass. It is, in every way, a different movie. It contains more story, more monsters, and there's even a musical number. Ultimately, what we've delivered is a love story 25 years in the making."

    Jersey Shore thankfully went off the air nearly two years ago, so what better time for a movie called Jersey Shore Massacre to be released, right?

    The Situation Just Got Deadly.

    Executive Producer Jenni JWoww Farley, of MTVs Snooki & JWoww and Jersey Shore, presents JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE, an award-winning, blood-drenched horror-comedy.

    When Teresa and the girls leave their N.J. salon for a weekend of sun and sin down the shore, they re blindsided by bizarre events that send them from the sands of Seaside Heights to a secluded house deep in the N.J Pine Barrens. Frightened by stories of the legendary Jersey Devil, the local Piney's and a giant dim-witted neighbor, the girls return to Seaside and hook-up with five fist-pumpers. Later they converge at a Seaside bar where they re quickly ejected for a dance-floor brawl. With nowhere to go, the group retreats to the Pine Barrens for the night. Blinded by lust, they remain unaware that their long-standing debt to humanity is about to be settled - with their lives. One by one, the body count soars as retribution is exacted at the hands of a mentally-deranged killer with much more than just an axe to grind.

    JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE stars Danielle Dallacco, Angelica Boccella, Giovanni Roselli (aka pro wrestler Romeo Roselli), Ron Jeremy, Sal Governale, Richard Christy and Bigfoot (from the Howard Stern Wack Pack), and was written & directed by Paul Tarnopol.

    Blu-ray Special Features: Bigfoot Unmedicated, Italian Ice (Sal Governale) Music Video Melt, Behind The Scenes Of Jersey Shore Massacre, FAT CAMP MASSACRE PART 1 (featurette)

    You're Not The Only One Who Wants Them Dead.


    The second feature from director Richard Ayoade (Submarine, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace) is based on the Dostoyevsky novella of the same name.

    Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon's horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.



    In the new season, we see Rick and the group of survivors fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison only to have it short-lived as the group loses everything, their home, family, and friends to the threat of the walkers, outside threats and the hidden dangers brewing inside the fences. The group of survivors are broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else's fate as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested -- a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others.

    Bonus Features Revealed For Vincent Price Collection II


    Scream Factory has just posted for their upcoming Vincent Price Collection II and it looks to be another outstanding set. I mean, Sweet Christ, THREE commentaries for Tomb of Ligeia alone. If they happen to do a third volume (the dude was in a lot of movies) I'd love to hear a commentary with comedian Dana Gould doing his wonderful Price impression like they did with Pitor Michael on the first volume.

     
    Happy Friday everyone! Check out the final list of extras for the upcoming (and highly-anticipated) blu-ray release of THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION II. Streets nationally on 10/21 but if you order directly from us at www.screamfactorydvd.com you can get it early on 9/30 AND get a free limited edition 18" x 24" poster of the newly-designed cover art.

    Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos & Cult Zombies Amok in the 666 Most Ear- and Eye-Ripping Big-Scream Films Ever!

    Today I want to point you guys toward an amazing new movie guide that's recently come out from Brooklyn's Bazillion Point Books: Heavy Metal Movies, also known under its complete - and way more metal title Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos & Cult Zombies Amok in the 666 Most Ear- and Eye-Ripping Big-Scream Films Ever! 



    From the back cover:

    Heavy metal and high-thrill cinema have been joined together like mutant twins since before the band Black Sabbath adopted the name of a chilling Italian horror film. The unadulterated journey of Heavy Metal Movies spans concert movies and trippy midnight flicks, inspirational depictions of ancient times and future apocalypses, and raw handheld digital video obsessions. As brash, irreverent, and visceral as both the music and the movies themselves, Heavy Metal Movies is the ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience.

    Exploding with way over 666 true headbanger classics—raging with disturbing documentaries, bulging barbarians, Satanic shockers, spluttery slashers, post-nuke dystopias, carnivorous chunk-blowers, undead gut-munchers, midnight mind-benders, concert films, killer cameos—plus witches, werewolves, bikers, aliens, lesbian vampires, and vengeful vikings galore...the heaviest sin-ematic sensations of all time!


    The massive tome that is Heavy Metal Movies starts off, fittingly enough, with an introduction from McPadden who explains how he first discovered and fell in love with these kinds of movies in a chapter titled Mighty Monsters, Delinquent Double Features, and Sticky Seats: My Life in Heavy Metal Movies. In an interview with Fangoria from a couple of months back McPadden explained exactly what he considers a "Heavy Metal Movie":

    “First up, there are the obvious documentaries and concert films; then come narrative movies where the music is an essential subject, like THIS IS SPINAL TAP. From there, it’s films where characters love heavy metal, such as WAYNE’S WORLD, and/or the musicians appear on screen, as with Lemmy in HARDWARE and EAT THE RICH. Rob Zombie’s features fall under this same umbrella. After that, you’ve got movies that inspired band names and/or song lyrics, and soundtracks dominated by heavy metal certainly qualify—AC/DC’s work in MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE, for example. Now, past the direct, tangible connections is the really interesting stuff, where you have to say, ‘I know a heavy metal movie when I see it.’ This is the realm of aesthetic embodiments, influences and inspirations—movies that crystalize and catapult forward the spirit of heavy metal: CONAN THE BARBARIAN, THE EXORCIST, the MAD MAX and TERMINATOR series, George A. Romero’s zombie epics, Italian cannibal gross-outs, ’80s slasher films, banned ‘video nasties’—even something as beautiful as 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.”


    Following Mike's intro, we get 5 pages from Alice Cooper, himself no stranger to heavy metal movies having appeared films like Monster Dog and Wayne's World. Alice gleefully discusses his several movie appearances starting with his own concert film Welcome To My Nightmare, all the way up to his most recent appearance in Tim Burton's critically maligned (but actually not that bad) Dark Shadows.

    After the Alice Cooper piece we get into the meat of the book, over 666 reviews of the most metal movies of all time. As you can tell from the bit I quoted from Fangoria's interview Mike covers a massive variety of film genres; horror, comedy, horror comedy, metal documentaries, sword & sorcery, biker flicks, disco slashers, animated viking films, post-apocalytic frog-people films - even the odd metal celebrity sex tape or two. From true classics like This Is Spinal Tap to some more obscure concert videos from bands like 3 Inches of Blood and The Obsessed all the way to delightfully daft turkeys like Howard the Duck (the best movie ever made that features a scene where Lorraine McFly fucks a midget in a duck suit), Mike has included a little something for everyone in his book.

    McPadden and I seem to share a very similar taste in cinema. I've seen over 2,000 movies in my lifetime - in fact for the past few weeks I've been slowly compiling a list on IMDB of every movie I've ever seen just to see how many, no matter how awesome (I Saw The Devil), awesomely bad (Shock 'em Dead) or just plain mind-rapingly awful (Goremet Zombie Chef From Hell) - and it's amazing to see how many of the movies I've seen and loved appear in this book. I can't go a full page without finding a favorite, and better still I'm finding tons of stuff I'm dying to check out after reading Mike's reviews.

    McPadden's writing is insightful and frequently hysterical which makes Heavy Metal Movies a pretty difficult book to put down once you start reading. If you enjoy heavy metal, heavy metal movies, or even if you just happen to enjoy more offbeat movie guides like Bleeding Skull, or Cinema Sewer I definitely recommend picking this book up at once. It's currently on sale directly from Bazillion Point Books, and many other online retailers like Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

    New This Week 8.5 - Predator Predecessors and Haunted Mirrors

    Pretty slow release week, but there are a few titles worth checking out this week, starting with Brian De Palma's wonderfully entertaining horror-rock-opera-musical Phantom of the Paradise:



    Phantom Of The Paradise is a ground-breaking cult film favorite from acclaimed writer/director Brian De Palma (Carrie, Dressed To Kill).

    Paul Williams wrote the acclaimed score for this musical horror classic, and stars as an evil record tycoon haunted and taunted by the disfigured composer Winslow Leach (William Finley, Sisters) he once wronged. Cheered by the Los Angeles Times as a “delightful, outrageous…visual triumph,” and also starring Jessica Harper (Suspiria, Shock Treatment) and Gerrit Graham (Chud II, Terrorvision), this hilarious send-up of the glam rock era is pure entertainment from beginning to end.”

    Scream has really outdone themselves with the bonus features on this one:

    DISC ONE (BLU-RAY):
    • NEW Audio Commentary with Jessica Harper, Gerrit Graham and the Juicy Fruits (Archie Hahn, Jeffrey Comanor and Harold Oblong aka Peter Eibling)
    • NEW Audio Commentary with Production Designer Jack Fisk
    • NEW Interview with director Brian DePalma (36 minutes)
    • NEW Interview with Paul Williams talking about the music of PHANTOM (30 minutes)
    • NEW Interview with Make-up Effects wizard Tom Burman discussing the Phantom Helmet

    DISC TWO (DVD):
    • Paradise Regained – documentary on the making of the film featuring director Brian DePalma, Producer Edward R. Pressman, William Finley, Paul Williams, Jessica Harper, Gerrit Graham and more… (50 minutes)
    • Interview with Paul Williams moderated by Guillermo Del Toro (72 minutes)

    • TV Spots
    • Theatrical Trailer
    • Still Gallery



    From director Greydon Clark (who has directed not one, but two films that have appeared on MST3K) comes Without Warning. It's a lot like Predator with an alien that hunts humans for sport. Only, unlike Predator, Without Warning is not awesome. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Without Warning for what it is, but it is a bit too slow moving at times. But the alien is quite spooky in far off shots (not so much in the ultra bright Glam Rock shot on the back of the Blu-ray cover though) and we do get some solid acting from veterans Palance and Landau, which does help the film out quite a bit. Landau is especially convincing as spooked conspiracy theorist Sarge. I've known a few guys like Sarge, and Landau's performance is pretty believable. The second I saw his character I thought "Hey, they made a movie character based on Dale!"

    The most interesting thing for me is that the alien is played by Kevin Peter Hall who actually went on be The Predator in Predator and that The Predator is also Harry from Harry and the Hendersons and Monster from Monster in the Closet.

    "A group of teenagers head out to the lake for a relaxing camping trip in the mountains. They ignore the warnings of the local truck stop owner and head to their destination. Things go terribly wrong when they run into an extraterrestrial who throws deadly discs that suck the blood of their victims. The group heads back to the truck stop for help from the eclectic group of residents: a crazy war veteran (Martin Landau, Ed Wood) and a determined hunter (Jack Palance, Batman).

    Also starring David Caruso (NYPD Blue, CSI Miami), Neville Brand (Eaten Alive), Cameron Mitchell (Blood And Black Lace) and Kevin Peter Hall (Predator) as the alien, and directed by Graydon Clark (Joysticks, Satan’s Cheerleaders), this ’thematic predecessor to Predator’ (FilmFanatic.org) is a non-stop ride into extra-terror-strial mayhem!"

    Vinegar Syndrome Redesigns Site And Announces September Releases

    Earlier this week Vinegar Syndrome finished revamping their site to make it better... stronger... faster. It's a lot swankier and more official looking now, so be sure to check it out if you haven't already. They also have added their September 9th release line-up which can be found here. And, if you want all four of the September releases they've been awesome enough to offer up this bundle, which saves you about $25 off the regular price. Between the Code Red blu-ray bundle and now this, I'm hoping more companies start offering up discounted packs of their new releases.

    I'm most excited about Graduation Day, which I've seen but do not remember at all, so it'll be like a new movie for me. All I remember is that Vanna White is in it, that's literally it.

    It's understandable since I think her part was pretty small, but it's kind of a shame they couldn't get Vanna to participate in any extra features. She was in this and two years later she started her 6,000 episode Wheel of Fortune sentence, she's probably too busy touching screens when contestants yell out letters to do an interview.



    After the death of a high school track star during a race, a mysterious, fencing-mask wearing killer begins murdering her friends and teachers. Who could the killer be? Her disgruntled coach? Her angry sister? Her violent boyfriend? As the bodies pile up, a twisted mystery unfolds, slowly revealing itself as it moves towards its bloody climax. One of the quintessential high school set slasher films of the early 80s, Vinegar Syndrome is bringing GRADUATION DAY to blu-ray, newly restored in 4K and presented in its original aspect ratio for the very first time!
    Director: Herb Freed
    96 minutes / 1981 / Color / 1.85:1
    Features Include:
    + Blu-ray & DVD Combo Pack
    + 4K Restoration from the Editor’s 35mm Answer Print + Video interview with Director Herb Freed
    + Video interview with Star Patch Mackenzie
    + Video interview with Producer David Baughn
    + Video interview with Editor Martin Sadoff
    + Commentary track with Producer David Baughn
    + Commentary track with The Hysteria Continues (link)
    + Original Theatrical Trailer



    In Bob Chinn’s big budget mix of X rated war epic and Nazisploitation, John Holmes stars as an American G.I. who gets marooned on a tropical island after his ship is bombed. There he discovers a small Nazi outpost which has kidnapped a beautiful American nurse. Determined to save her, he slowly begins to infiltrate the Nazi compound.
    Also starring Seka, in one of her first roles, and beautiful Jade Wong, PRISONER OF PARADISE remains one of director Bob Chinn’s crowning achievements.
    Director: Bob Chinn
    78min / Color / 1.85:1 OAR
    Features Include:
    + Dual-Layer DVD-9 | Region Free | 16:9 Anamorphic | MONO
    + Scanned in 2k from 35mm Negatives
    + Original theatrical trailer
    + Caribbean Films Promo Trailers



    Mai Lin vs. Serena/Oriental Hawaii - No synopsis for either of these up on the site yet, but here are the features:

    + Dual-Layer DVD-9 | Region Free | 16:9 Anamorphic | MONO
    + Scanned in 2k from 35mm Original Camera Negatives
    + Original theatrical trailers for both films



    Cry For Cindy/Touch Me/Act of Confession - Also no real details on any of these films on their site yet other than the fact that Anthony Spinelli directed all of them, but here are the features:

    + 2 Disc DVD Set | Region Free | 16:9 Anamorphic + 4:3 | MONO
    + Scanned in 2k from 35mm and 16mm elements
    + Includes feature length softcore version of CRY FOR CINDY
