Coming Soon!!

“Chernobyl Diaries” is coming May 25th, 2012.  The film follows a group of six young tourists who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an “extreme tour” guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster 26 years ago. After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are being hunted by strange beings that now live in the city.  I have seen the full length trailer at the theater a couple of times now.  It looks pretty interesting.  I love the premise.  The movie is based on the story “The diary of Lawson Oxford” written by Oren Peli.  Oren Peli is the creator of “Paranormal Activity” so expectations are high.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that “Chernobyl Diaries” lives up to the hype!!  Check it out.

 

 

 

 

 

Coming Soon!!

You guys are going to love this.  I saw this extended trailer Friday night before “The Lorax”  I loved it.  Really cannot wait to see this movie.  It’s called “Paranorman“.  It is a 3D stop motion animation feature brought to you by the same people who made Coraline.  It is set for release on August 17, 2012.  Watch and enjoy.  Spoiler alert:  You’re gonna love the last 10 seconds!

Coming Soon!!

I have been waiting for Tim Burton’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for almost 2 years. Now that the trailers are starting to roll out I am in full blown frenzy. Before you watch the trailer, I have included a YouTube clip of Tim Burton introducing the film at an event. Pretty cool stuff.

Coming Soon!!

This one looks promising.  ATM is a thriller directed by David Brooks and Written by Chris Sparling who wrote Buried.  Unfortunately as is with a lot of IFC films, It will be released via Video on Demand for one month before a limited American release in April.  Try and catch this one or you will have to wait til it is out on DVD.

 

Coming Soon!!

Chronicle opens in two weeks.  I can’t quite decide from the trailer whether it is going to be completely lame or mildly exciting.  I guess I don’t care because I am so desperate for any new movie  that resembles horror.  Take a look and decide for yourself!

 

“The Silent House”

A lot of buzz going on right now in Hollywood about ” Silent House”.  A new independent horror film coming out in March and starring Elizabeth Olson.   Before we talk about that let’s rewind back to the original version. “The Silent House” or “La Casa Muda” is an Urguayan Spanish speaking horror film that was shot in real time in one continuous 78 minute shot.  It was a small film which gained international attention at film festivals.  It ran here in Cleveland in September at the Cinema Wasteland Horror Convention but I was unable to attend.  It has been driving me crazy ever since.  I will finally be receiving it on Wednesday and will let everyone know as soon as I have watched it. The American version stars Elizabeth Olson (Yes, she is the sister of the Olson twins) and looks pretty awesome as well.  So far the reviews are glowing.  Check out the trailers.  First the Urguayan version then the American version.

“Prometheus”

I have been waiting patiently for the trailers for “Prometheus”, a new Ridley Scott film.  Originally it was written as a prequel  to the “Alien” series of films but as development continued it became a film that stands alone although Scott says it contains ‘”Alien” DNA strands’.  The final product will be released in June 2012 but they have been slowly but surely releasing teaser stills and finally this trailer.  So far everything looks promising.  Fingers crossed!!

 

 

 

Coming Soon!!

We have been hearing about this movie for what seems like forever.  Well, get ready fellow Sci-fi and horror nerds.  “The Hunger Games” finally premieres in March.  Yahoo!!

 

 

“The Devil Inside”

“The Devil Inside” is the latest movie based on the “found footage” premise.  The trailer seems creepy enough but  is there room for yet another fake documentary type movie?  We seem to be assaulted with them at all sides these days.  The trailer seems promising but I will wait for a few scenes to be released before I start  trying to make predictions about this one.

 

The Cabin in the Woods”

“The Cabin in the Woods” is described as a tongue- in- cheek thriller- horror film.  HHMMMMM  what does that mean?  Well does it help if I tell you that awesome Joss Whedon is producing and writing this upcoming film?  At face value it sounds like a young people go camping and carnage ensues type flick,; but if you watch the trailer closely it doesn’t seem so typical.  Judge for yourself.  I am so there opening night!!
