Ok, JD. I watched The Last Exorcism last night. Overall I liked it but can't really get behind the ending. I'll avoid anything spoilerish here but it felt a little off. And one of my biggest peeves with movies like this is when the cameraman is running for his life but still manages to record everything. But like I said, I liked it for the most part. Thanks for the suggestion.
I searched and was surprised not to see a thread or a mention in this thread about this show on FX, unless I missed it. I just watched the pilot last night and thought it was pretty good. It is the typical family moves into the haunted house in the neighborhood plot but there is so much going on. I am looking forward to Wed. for the second episode to see where this ride goes.
Official Announcement - Chillerama on DVD and Blu-ray! | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
The official word is in! The stickiest horror anthology of all time, Chillerama is cumming, and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming,and cumming, and coming to DVD and Blu-ray!
From the Press Release
After a triumphant premiere at the famed Hollywood Forever Cemetery and after grossing out, er, entertaining audiences all over the country with a 20-city Roadshow Tour, the long-awaited new cult classic finally comes home! On November 29th, Image Entertainment unleashes the horror anthology CHILLERAMA to home theaters everywhere on unrated Blu-ray™ and DVD. SRP is $29.97 for the Blu-ray™ and $27.97 for the DVD.
From the depraved minds of directors Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City, The Dark Backward), Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs,VH-1’s “Scream Queens”), Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Knights of Badassdom), CHILLERAMA is a festival of gore, guts, goofiness and good times. In addition to experiencing all the chills, thrills – and goo – of the ultimate midnight movie in high-definition 1080p picture and DTS-HD audio, CHILLERAMA boasts two hours of insightful and heretofore unseen bonus features that delve deep into the creative process of these four renowned directors of the macabre, as they labored and toiled to create a cinematic love letter to horror and film fans.
Produced by ArieScope Pictures and in the spirit of classic “omnibus” films like Dead of Night, Tales From the Crypt, Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie, with four vignettes that not only celebrate the golden age of B horror schlock but also nearly the entire history of horror cinema itself, CHILLERAMA offers something for every bad taste. With titles like “Wadzilla,” “I Was A Teenage Werebear,” The Diary of Anne Frankenstein,” and “Zom-B-Movie,” CHILLERAMA features appearances by Joel David Moore (Avatar, Hatchet), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class), Kane Hodder (Hatchet and Hatchet II), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, Sharktopus) and more cameos than one can (body)count.
It's the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and Cecil B. Kaufman (Richard Riehle, Bridesmaids, Hatchet) has planned the ultimate marathon of lost film prints to unleash upon his faithful cinephile patrons. Four films so rare that they have never been exhibited publicly on American soil until this very night! What could possibly go wrong?

Another Film Rejected By The BBFC – The Bunny Game. Here’s The Trailer Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
First I have heard of this one. Not sure even I want to see this.The BBFC recently made headlines by refusing a certificate to The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence. They’ve since allowed an 18 certificate for a heavily edited version of the film, but initially – for whatever it’s worth now – they had said that the film was pretty much unreleasable and they didn’t know how cuts could make it a prospect for certification.
Today, they’ve rejected another, less high profile picture, Adam Rehmeier’s The Bunny Game.
Here’s a description of that film’s basic shape, courtesy of the BBFC:
The film follows a female prostitute who hitches a lift with a truck driver. The truck driver kidnaps the woman, restrains and forcibly strips her, and proceeds to physically and sexually abuse and humiliate her. The abuse of the kidnapped woman takes up the greater part of the film.
Okay – but we’ve had Hostel and Captive and lord knows what else get certificates in the UK. What’s so different about The Bunny Game?
The principal focus of The Bunny Game is the unremitting sexual and physical abuse of a helpless woman, as well as the sadistic and sexual pleasure the man derives from this. The emphasis on the woman’s nudity tends to eroticise what is shown, while aspects of the work such as the lack of explanation of the events depicted, and the stylistic treatment, may encourage some viewers to enjoy and share in the man’s callousness and the pleasure he takes in the woman’s pain and humiliation.
Sounds fair enough. It’s also worth noting that the film contains “STRONG SADOMASOCHISTIC SCENES, SEXUALISED TERRORISATION & REAL SEX” – meaning that some kind of penetration would be visible during the woman’s rape. Sounds genuinely horrifying.
Of course, I don’t actually believe the film should be denied a certificate. I think there should be some means by which adults can acquire this film through “the proper channels”. They certainly can’t be stopped acquiring it through improper channels.
Note: the BBFC have not “banned” the film, though that’s bound to be the focus of some headlines, they’ve simply made it so it can’t be sold legally in the UK. I guess the distinction is a very fine one.
Oh, the BBFC. We’re back on that age-old debate again. I know I’m only warming over old bones, but I’ve always meant it and I still do: I believe in certification, but I don’t think anything produced lawfully should be denied some kind of adult certificate.
The BBFC have said, by the way, that their decision is made on the basis that giving the nod to The Bunny Game “would risk potential harm within the terms of the Video Recordings Act”. I’m still pretty foggy on what they mean by “harm”. I wish they’d one day make a statement that actually clarifies this.
Jennifer Lynch's Hisss Has Been Released - ShockTillYouDrop.com
Ever so quietly, the Jennifer Lynch-directed creature feature Hisss has slithered out into the world for consumption. Apparently, you can find it on Redbox and on Netflix Instant.
Hisss' hisssstory (sorry, I couldn't help myself) has been a bumpy one.
Lynch directed the film in 2008 with Mallika Sherawat as a snake woman who leaves the jungle to head into the big city where her mate has been taken. Robert Kurtzman provided the impressive creature effects. As the film entered post-production, Lynch began to have battles with the film's producers in the editing room leading her to disown the project. So, you should know going in the film that has been released is not entirely her vision.
Dog Soldiers Lives On in Legacy Series! - ShockTillYouDrop.com
Kismet Entertainment Group announces the first official teaser trailer for the upcoming Dog Soldiers: Legacy web series.
The project was filmed in Northwest Arkansas in the last weekend of August 2011.
"The trailer brings back a sense of the unique werewolf style that we have all come to love from the original Dog Soldiers film," stated Kismet vice president D. Eric Allen. Allen produced the teaser.
Based on a modern-day version of "Little Red Riding Hood," multiple members of Allen's family took part in the Ryan Lightbourn-directed trailer including his grandmother Pat "Nan" Allen who plays the awaiting grandma and his sister Emmy Allen who portrays "Red."
Kismet Entertainment is also in the early stages of pre-production for the first sequel to the 2002 cult hit Dog Soldiers, which put director Neil Marshall on the genre map.
