Though I’m getting pretty sick of zombies, I would be remiss if I did not keep everyone afloat of some of the…more unusual zombie films headed to DVD and VOD. Zombie Pirates
sounds like a cool entry, not only with the retro poster art, but the whole thing being a tribute to Euro Horror (the Blind Dead
series in particular) is just cool. Hopefully it lives up to its hype, with zombie pirates and revenge and sacrifices and Sarah French starring. Steve Sessions is a big fan of retro horror, and many of his films are loving tributes. Zombie Pirates
looks worth checking out!
A dangerous young woman (Sarah French) offers up human sacrifices to a ghost ship of the dead in return for an ancient treasure. When she comes up one sacrifice short, her zombie masters exact their bloody revenge in this gory tribute to Spain’s popular Blind Dead Euro Horror series. This outrageous horror movie was directed by Steve Sessions (Sinister) and stars the beautiful Sarah French (Insectula). Presented in a 16×9 Anamorphic Widescreen Edition mastered from High Definition.
Direct from Rolfe Kanefsky’s Facebook
comes concept art for Megafoot
! Just what is Megafoot? Imagine Bigfoot with lots of cybernetic enhancements. And never fear, a normal Bigfoot will fight Megafoot! Beyond knowing that Rolfe Kanefsky wrote the script and that they hope to film in spring, there is no other information yet beyond the images and a sentence or two. But do you really need all that information to watch a film called Megafoot
? Come on, man! Megafoot
So why is this Megafoot cybernetically enhanced? Is it the Borg? Mad scientist? Aliens? Is Megafoot just a DIY Bigfoot with a subscription to Maker Magazine? All questions will be answered when Megafoot stomps onto your video player screens!
Megafoot already has a Facebook page, a Twitter, and a lot of interest.
“It’s bigger than Big!” it’s MEGAFOOT!
A year ago, Poseidon Rex was just a poster
, now it’s completed enough they dropped a trailer! Thrill as a T-Rex with some fins harasses treasure divers, and then tries go the American Godzilla
route and pop out a bunch of babies. Featuring a bunch of black guys with guns who keep demanding gold from the heroes.
Don’t worry, there’s a black guy on the good guy team. Who wants to take bets on if he’ll live to the end of the film?
Mark L. Lester (Pterodactyl) directs, Rafael Jordan (Star Runners) writes, and Brian Krause and Anne McDaniels star
Poseidon Rex hits DVD in December 2013. Will it make it to SyFy? Or will we be forced to actually get the DVD? Only time (and the programming schedule) will tell!
A second trailer for Nuigulumar Z
aka Gothic Lolita Battle Bear
) has hit the net. It’s Noboru Iguchi’s latest, and stars a Teddy Bear that combines with it’s gothic lolita owner to transform into Rina Takeda to kick evil people in the face. Luckily, there are lots of evil people, and also zombies. The official release is January 25th, 2014!
Nuigulumar Z is based on an novel Hōsei Ningen Nuigurumā by Kenji Ohtsuki, which is based on a song by his band Tokusatsu called “Tatakae! Nuigulumar”.
Shoko Nakagawa will play Yumeko Ayukawa, nicknamed Dameko, a lolita-wearing girl who merges with her teddy bear Buusuke to form Nuigulumar. Rina Takeda will play the merged Nuigulumar, complete with pink bear costume. In addition, Takeda also will play a villain character named Kill Billy. Which means we might see Takeda battle herself! Who will win…
Swamp of the Ravens isn’t about Baltimore’s increasingly unlikeliness in the playoffs, but is in fact the new RiffTrax VOD! Featuring an original song, Euro sleaze, and Spanish actors no one in the US has heard of. The original has autopsy footage that appears to have been shot with the actors, I have no idea if the RiffTrax version leaves this in, so be warned!
Fun fact: Director Manuel Caño also directed a film called Voodoo Black Exorcist!
Yes, it’s an utterly baffling horror film about a mad doctor who believes death is simply an evolution and that every woman wants to sleep with him. Yes, he is laughed out of the academy and moves his decency-defying research to a swamp in Ecuador, as one does. Yes, he’s investigated by a sheriff who can only be described as a chunk of swarthy walking meat, and who also believes that every woman wants to sleep with him.
But MORE THAN ANY OF THIS, Swamp of the Ravens is a vehicle for an original song about being in love with a dead robot that will change the way you view songs, movies, songs in movies, robots, dead robots, living robots, and love itself. Seriously, we haven’t been so infatuated with a song since Damien Carter taught us all about “Hangin’ Out With [His] Family” in Birdemic, and we know you’ll love it just as much as we do. You poor souls.
Oh and also, there are no ravens in the titular raven swamp. Just buzzards. Really, it’s a heck of a movie.
So grab the dead robot you love most and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Swamp of the Ravens! No ravens required!
