Something Wicked this way comes! OOOPS! Sorry..wrong movie. No, seriously, this movie gives me the creeps! The Wicked, from Image Entertainment, will be out on DVD shortly. Check out the press release and trailer below!
Image Entertainment suggests you sleep with one eye open as your worst nightmares come to life in The Wicked. A group of curious teenagers decide to seek out their town’s local legend and go on the hunt for a child-eating witch, not realizing they could be her next meal!

Local stories warn that deep in the woods a witch with a ravenous hunger feeds on the flesh of the young. In an abandoned house in the woods, she hunts her victims…and if you try to enter, you’ll never see daylight again. When another child goes missing, a group of local teenagers decide to find out if the urban legend is true. What starts out as a meaningless dare turns into a blood-spattered fight for survival against a mistress of darkness in this unrelenting nightmare from which you may never wake up!
The DVD will also feature “No Soul is Safe: The Making of The Wicked.”
Alright horror fans! Did the Evil Dead remake cut it? Well, if you’ve read the major newspaper reviews, then no. While it wasn’t short on action or gore, apparently it left a few things to be desired. Like the original character Ash.
Last night I payed the bucks to see it with a theater full of eager patrons. What was they’re and subsequently, my reaction after the film? Well….
First, the audience seemed to enjoy it. Then at the end of the film, they applauded. I found that interesting as I wondered how many of them had seen the original.
And my two cents?
Although I enjoyed the special effects, I have to say, a friend of mine who’s been involved with horror films since he was a teen, said it best. It was a possessed version of Dawson’s Creek. Well, at least the acting was.
I will say that in all sincerity, I did go see it with an open mind. And yes, it was entertaining. I especially liked the use of the duct tape for treating the trauma injuries. While some scenes were predictable, (and what horror movies aren’t) It didn’t distract from the overall picture. So if you’re reading this, then you must like horror. And if you like horror, then I do highly recommend you see it! Just don’t take anyone who’s squeamish. My girlfriend missed some of the film because she had her hand covering her eyes!
*SPOILER ALERT* stop reading if you haven’t seen the film.
Not to nit pick or anything, but I was a little confused when Mia returned from the grave (good as new) with the help of some drugs and a battery. But hey, it’s a movie, right? Outside of that, I wasn’t disappointed.
So, would I see it again? YES. Enjoy the film everyone.
A bio-plant explosion will forever change the dynamic of a small country town. A man will be forced to kill those very people he once held dear. On April 16th, Image Entertainment challenges you to escape zombie-ridden Montgomery County with the release of STATE OF EMERGENCY. This harrowing tale of survival amongst the undead is directed by Turner Clay (Interception) and stars Jay Hayden (A Warrior’s Heart), Tori White (Silent Night) and Andy Stahl (The Blind Side).
After an explosion unleashes the contents of a military bio-weapons plant, the unsuspecting populace is transformed into a roaming army of flesh-eating zombies. Trapped in the quarantine zone, Jim finds himself cut off, confused and fighting for his own survival. Contacted by a small band of others unaffected by the toxins, Jim sets out to reach their besieged warehouse. Becoming the survival group’s de-facto leader, he struggles to keep order as they hunker down, fortify their stronghold and arm themselves against the attacking mutants. Fragmentary radio reports from outside hint at a last-ditch government rescue plan.
But can the survivors hold out until help arrives… or will they succumb to the living hell of an undead apocalypse? Will anybody survive?

What’s scarier than your mom being pissed off at you? I think we’ve all been there at one time or another, but THIS is something really different! I remember the original so I’m excited about screening the remake. The film will be available on DVD and Blu-ray May 8th. Here’s the official press release on the remake from Troma’s 1980 classic film.
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III and IV) with screen story and screenplay by Scott Milam based on the original MOTHER’S DAY written by Charles Kaufman and Warren Leight, MOTHER’S DAY is a graphic remake of the Troma horror classic. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hide out…only to discover that their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) lost their house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their party guests become the depraved brothers’ unwitting hostages. Their sadistic Mother soon arrives and brilliantly takes control of the situation, ratcheting up the terror. As the hostages struggle desperately to survive the harrowing torture, they realize that there is nothing a Mother won’t do to protect her children.
With an all-star cast including Rebecca DeMornay, Jamie King, Briana Evigan, Patrick John Flueger, Deborah Ann Woll, Lyriq Bent, Frank Grillo and Shawn Ashmore, MOTHER’S DAY is the chilling and gorier remake of the 1980 Troma classic by the same name.
Anchor Bay Films presents the ultimate “Mother” with the May 8th release of MOTHER’S DAY on Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack and on DVD. MOTHER’S DAY will also have exclusive theatrical engagements in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago on May 4th in select theaters.
I had a blast at this year’s Days Of The Dead con in Peachtree City GA. As a vendor I met hundreds of fans of the horror genre and celebrities. I also met indie film makers. I love supporting indie films especially those shot here in Georgia. Now, this one wasn’t filmed in GA. It was filmed in North Carolina… but that’s close enough. As of today, they’ve only had a few screenings including The Days Of The Dead con in Peachtree City. The next one will be at the Mad Monster Party con http://www.themadmonsterparty.com/ in Charolett NC. on March 23rd.

Like so many others on Friday night I shelled out the bucks to the local AMC to catch the highly anticipated The Woman in Black. My theater was sold out. Did the movie live up to the hype? In a word… YES!!
The story takes place during the Victorian era which added creepiness from the start. The house, the children, the town and all the way down to the toys, set the scene for a great plot. Also it doesn’t get much scarier when you can only see things by candlelight! Gore was kept at a minimum but nothing was lost on the shock value . It offered plenty of tension and kept the audience on edge throughout the film. To his credit, director James Watkins avoided the use of actual physical violence yet delivered a film that was loaded with suspense.
Now lets take a look at the lead character Arthur Kipps played by Daniel Radcliffe. Arthur Kipps is in jeopardy of losing his job as an attorney. He’s given one last opportunity to prove himself by traveling to the home of a recently departed woman and sorting through the mountain of paperwork she left behind. From the moment he arrives in the town he notices a very uneasy feeling of not being wanted. There are no rooms available and the only one offered to him harbors a deadly secret. After that he’s forced to stay in the house and soon discovers it doesn’t want him either. When the ghost makes her presence know to him we get a glimpse of his true character. Arthur’s not terrified but rather more curious at first, as he starts to unravel the mystery. But it’s too late. He’s unleashed the vengeful ghost on the village children. His only possible hope of saving them now is to find a way to appease the woman in black. [Read more...]
