Synopsis:

North of Paris. In order to avenge the murder of one of their own by a group of ruthless gangsters, corrupt cops four go on a rampage in a condemned building serving as the mobster’s hideout. Now trapped, the officers are about to be executed when the unimaginable occurs: hordes of bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures invade the building, savagely attacking everyone. Unexpected alliances are made when their lives are threatened by the unthinkable.

Yep.  Gangsters vs. Cops vs. Zombies.

New trailer for ‘Dead Snow’

Posted in movies with tags , on June 27, 2009 by Justin

I’ve been looking forward to Dead Snow, the Norweigian Zombie Nazi movie for a while now (when you hear about a new Zombie Nazi movie, you pretty much immediately start looking forward to it).

The film was released yesterday in theaters in New York and L.A. via IFC and IFC On Demand, although since the On Demand version that’s been released is dubbed, I highly recommend waiting until the DVD to see it if you’re not lucky enough to be near a theater that’s playing it.

And although the film’s reviews so far have been mixed at best, I’m still pretty effin’ stoked about it. Which is why it brings me pleasure to say that our good friend, B-Sol over at The Vault of Horror has posted an exclusive new trailer for the flick.

‘Zombieland’ has a trailer. And. It. Is. Amazing.

Posted in movies with tags , on June 18, 2009 by Justin

Holy shit, this looks awesome.  I’m just gonna let this thing speak for itself.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Columbia Pictures’ horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is a big wuss – but when you’re afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) is an AK-totin’, zombie-slayin’ badass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), who have also found unique ways to survive the zombie mayhem, they will have to determine which is worse: relying on each other or succumbing to the zombies.

Watch this is HD at Apple.

Zombieland hits theaters October 9th.

It’s a battle of the sexes in U.K. zom-com ‘Doghouse’

Posted in movies with tags , on June 13, 2009 by Justin

Doghouse was released in U.K. theaters yesterday, so it might be a while before we get to see it here stateside, but if the trailer’s any indication, it looks like this is one that’s gonna be worth the wait.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Danny is handling his divorce badly. He’s depressed. Gone to pieces. But his mates aren’t giving up on him. Struggling with their own mid-life troubles, they drag him off for a boy’s weekend in the country… which goes horribly twisted when they find themselves holidaying in a village overrun by psychotic, homicidal women.

Forced to hide out in the empty shops when their minibus driver also goes crazy, they’re cut off and helpless. And clueless. But then they encounter an injured soldier, the sole survivor of a bloody massacre, and discover that an airborne toxin is the cause of this disaster – a toxin that only affects women, turning them into man-hating, frenzied cannibals.

“Frenzied cannibals?”  Sure look like zombies to me.

You can find more information on the film over at its official website.

Mormon zombies knock at your door in ‘Book of Zombie’

Posted in movies with tags , , on June 8, 2009 by Justin

I’ve thought of all sorts of clever jokes I could say about this one, but I think I’m just gonna let it speak for itself.

In a town where the word of God can save your soul… all hell is about to break loose!”

A small, sleepy Utah town gets an undead wake-up call when all of the townspeople of Mormon faith suddenly transform into flesh-eating ghouls!

Now, a group of “non-believers” unaffected by the mysterious epidemic must band together to survive the night and answer the burning question: How do you kill a Mormon zombie?

‘Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated’

Posted in movies with tags , on April 24, 2009 by Justin

notldrYou know how when you go down to Big Lots and see that bin of DVDs in flimsy cardboard sleeves going for a buck apiece?  There’s a reason that anyone can just sell these movie: It’s because they’re copyright-free.  It’s not that they never had a copyright.  At some point, they all did, but somehow through the years those copyrights expires, and through clerical errors or people just plain not caring, the films ended up in the open market.  And in the open market, anyone can sell the movie or edit the movie to whatever degree they want without the risk of some movie studio suing their pants off.

The most famous example is George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.

Now I have to warn you.  Do NOT buy the version of Romero’s classic that you find in the bargain bins*.  The image quality is going to look like somebody un-reeled a VHS tape, had a hobo poop on it, stuffed the tape back in and played it on a TV in a pawn shop, then filmed the TV with their Blackberry.

Now because of its public domain status, NOTLD has been re-edited and re-made countless times.  And by most accounts, all of these reboots have positively sucked (although Tom Savini’s 1990 remake has its fans) but every now and then something kind of interesting comes along, like this new art project entitled Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated.

Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is a mass collaborative artistic re-envisioning of George A. Romero’s 1968 cult classic, Night of the Living Dead.

International artists and animators were invited to select scenes from the film and reinvent them through their artwork.

Opened to all styles, media and processes the results ran the gambit with scenes created in everything from Puppets to CGI, Hand Drawn Animation to Flash, and Oil Paintings to Tattoos.

This cacophony of works was organized and curated across the original film’s time line in order to create a completely original video track made entirely out of art.

Now, I haven’t seen this project (and I can’t find anywhere on the official site that says when it’ll be released) so it may very well be terrible, but at least its interesting.  It kind of puts a whole new spin on the notion of the re-working of previous works of art (something that Girl Talk could probably have a conversation with you about).

After the jump, I’ve included the latest trailer for the project but if you head over to the official site, you can see two additional trailers plus some of the artwork that was used.

Movie Trailer: ‘Silent Night, Zombie Night’

Posted in movies with tags , on April 18, 2009 by Justin

Silent Night, Zombie Night (which Leigh first reported on here) has recently wrapped and is currently being edited, so hopefully we might actually be seeing it sometime soon.  Says director Sean Cain:

We’re still in postproduction and we’ve officially hired Jaye Barnes Luckett as our composer. Now that the trailer is finished, we’ll be talking with distribution companies.

You can see that trailer he’s talking about above.  This movie looks like it could be a lot of fun.  It’s hard to believe that no one’s attempted a real zombie Christmas movie before (or maybe they have and I’m just not aware of it). I’d give you a premise of the movie but really, does it matter?  Zombie Santa, man.

Anyways, here’s hoping that Cain gets that distribution deal so that we can see the flick in one way or another in the near future.
