Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt (2011) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Too bad.Best I figure, and with this movie you pretty much have to draw your own conclusions as to why anything happens from this point on, whatever supernatural force lurks within the crystal ball decides to bring the Killer Eye model to life in order to procreate with the women like the giant eyeball wanted to in the first movie. I think. I can’t say for certain because the Killer Eye also has a bad habit of killing them before it has a chance to mate. It could just be that there was one in particular it wanted to mate with and that’s why it zapped the others with its eye beam to make them take their tops off and dance around or get all lesbo on each other before psychically exploding their heads and what not. Who the **** knows?
When the movie ended… Well, umm, it just ended. Most movies end with a resolution of the story. This movie simply has a stopping point. When the end credits began to roll, I actually had to back it up a few moments just to make sure that was the actual ending and to see if I hadn’t blacked out, fallen asleep, had an out-of-body experience, entered a hypnotic state that caused me to walk around the living room in my underwear slowly caressing my half-naked torso, something, anything that might make some sense.
It should have ended with a cut to the Full Moon logo so that Charles Band could pop out of the moon waving a fistful of cash while declaring in his best Porky Pig voice “Th-th-th-that's all, suckers!"
Woman, The (UK DVD/Blu-ray) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Hope that's on the American release.Revolver Entertainment’s release of The Woman comes in a very high quality package, whether it’s the DVD or Blu-ray that you pick up. Image quality is rock solid, especially in its high definition variant, while the 5.1 surround track shared on both discs does the job admirably. If you have the tech, you’ll want to go Blu for the inclusion of an extra special feature. Both discs share an informative and pacey “making of”, split between a dedicated featurette and some interviews, along with a small selection of deleted scenes and an audio presentation of one of the original songs from the soundtrack (Sean Spillane’s “Distracted”). The included animated short film Mi Burro is an almost psychedelic, Spanish language slice of weirdness following a young boy and the one-sided relationship between him and his uncaring, abusive, alcoholic, whoring donkey business partner. Weird barely begins to describe it, and it’s ultimately almost as depressing as the feature that it’s backing up.
The aforementioned UK Blu-ray exclusive extra comes in the form of this year’s Total Film panel discussion at London’s Film4 FrightFest -- a discussion on American horror, past, present and future with Lucky McKee, Joe Lynch, Adam Green, Larry Fessenden, Ti West and Andrew van den Houten. As mentioned in our FrightFest 2011 event coverage, this is a solid (and lengthy at just over 40 minutes) listen, even if it does develop into somewhat of a venting of personal and professional frustration by filmmakers beleaguered by studio systems. A more than solid package overall, then, though the absence of a commentary track is glaring.
Eli Roth Investigates Evil in New Episode of Discovery's Curiosity | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
This intriguing episode of "Curiosity" airs on the Discovery Channel on Sunday, October 30, at 9pm ET (you can DVR "The Walking Dead"). Check out the preview video below to get warmed up for the social experiment that will leave you asking yourself…how evil am I?
Actor/director Eli Roth is no stranger to exploring the nature of evil. As a master of horror with films like Inglourious Basterds and Hostel, Roth turns his lens to research possibly the most horrifying monster of them all - the average American. In "Curiosity"’s "How Evil are You?", Roth sets out to recreate the infamous Milgram experiment to see how, or if, the results have changed. Roth himself even undergoes tests and scans to see if he carries what researchers dub "the evil gene." So, does Hollywood's famous horror director have a little extra "edge" in his craft?
Evil Dead Remake News Sounds Like a Load of Smack ... Literally | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
I can't say I'm too thrilled about seeing an Evil Dead remake, but after today's bit of news I can guarantee I'll at least laugh my way through Federico Alvarez's upcoming re-imagining of Sam Raimi's classic.
According to Bloody Disgusting, Evil Dead Redux finds five friends trekking to that ill-fated Tennessee cabin in an effort to help one of their friends kick her drug addiction: Without her drugs she becomes insane and difficult to control, which makes it impossible to see that she's actually possessed.
So there's that. Of course, the demons are unleashed when one of the kids reads aloud from the Necronomicon. I know it's closed minded to ridicule these films every step of the way, but this sounds like a plot device that's trying too hard to be edgy. We'll find out as this one looms closer. Keep watching this space for all the gory details. Hopefully the next bit of news goes a long way toward making this whole premise sound a bit better.
