'Zombie Safari' Opens Undead Theme Park!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 13:21

I’m not big on genre films riffing on classics, but this is just too clever to ignore.

Red Sea Media is in development on Zombie Safari, a complete riff on Steve Spielberg’s Jurassic Park – only with zombies!

Years after the zombie apocalypse, life has returned to normal. A billionaire, driven mad by what happened to his family years ago, opens a zombie safari theme park. But when the power goes out, nothing is left to stop these “captive” zombies from escaping.

Piranha Sharks‘ Mark Burman is producing with no director or writer revealed, yet.

But we do have some awesome art…

Exclusive: Joe Begos and Josh Ethier Talk Almost Human

Dread Central - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 13:00

For their first feature, Almost Human (review), director Joe Begos and actor/editor Josh Ethier have put together an ambitious, effects-heavy alien abduction story that’s as unrelenting as it is exuberant.

An intense ride that shows the love for the Eighties era, Almost Human is a standout first entry for Joe and his crew. Now, through IFC Midnight, the film is enjoying a limited theatrical run and is also available on VOD.

DC: I know House of the Devil, the Ti West film, did a limited VHS run, but there are very few films that get a chance to do it and where it actually makes sense to put it out. Is the VHS of Almost Human just going to be a limited run, or will any copies be for sale? Or are you just handing them out at screenings?

JB: I actually made a hundred of them and I know that they’re giving out about half of them, and then some of them will be with press stuff. So I think they’re going to slowly trickle their way out there. It’s definitely a giveaway and publicity thing only. So they’ll be hard to track down since they’re not for sale. which I think is kind of cool, ya know?

DC: How much credit does Stephen King deserve for getting you guys into horror, and when did you make your first short?

JB: For me, the thing with Stephen King is, with his books and his movies, when I would watch them as a younger kid, I could identify with them because they felt so much like home. It felt like the town that I lived in. Those movies were much more scary because I felt like they could happen at any time. Silver Bullet felt like it was shot in my town, and Pet Sematary seemed like it could’ve taken place ten minutes up the road. I just had a much bigger connection to those movies because of that.

And our first short... I started making stuff when I was around twelve or thirteen and I probably met Josh a year or so later and he joined in pretty quick on that front.

DC: Yeah, I’ve seen Bad Moon Rising; was that the first thing that you guys worked on together?

JB: Yeah, that was only made for a few hundred bucks in our living room. We shot the whole thing in our apartment. We always wanted to be shooting and making something, and I would get so bored with the locations that I had. So I try to make the coolest thing that I can. It’s like, all right, I’ve got a few hundred bucks and an apartment, how could I make a werewolf movie? A couple friends of ours saw it and tried to get it in the hands of some festival directors. Then FEARnet asked us if they could license it. It was something that we didn’t think any more than a dozen people were going to see it. We just wanted to try out some new techniques and some new equipment that we had, and then, all of a sudden, it’s playing in different countries and different festivals. It was pretty bizarre.

DC: So you definitely would say that Bad Moon Rising helped get Almost Human made? Did you start with shorts because it made more sense to do something smaller to hone your skills, or do you have a passion for short film? I’ve always thought to make a feature if you can because it has more of a chance of getting out there and having success.

JB: We started when we were thirteen or fourteen so shorts just seemed like the most obvious thing, just to kind of cut our teeth on it. We always wanted to make a feature, it was just figuring out when the time was right. With Bad Moon Rising, the way that it helped make the feature is when we went to these festivals, people had features that cost a couple hundred grand that were on the same technical level as our short. And these people were profiting on these movies so that’s when we thought, "We gotta make a movie." People always say they got money and then it’s just a waiting game so we just looked at how much we had in our credit line and how much we had in the bank and decided to go and start this. We pretty much self-financed it until it was in the can, and then we started cutting it and using the pieces we weren’t cutting to raise additional money to take us to post. We literally had twenty dollars in the movie account when we wrapped shooting. Because we had made so many shorts, it helped us overcome a lot of the problems in making such a do-it-yourself movie like this.

DC: Yeah, I think you guys only shot for about three weeks so obviously you needed that experience to get all the work done. Is there something you weren’t able to do on set that you didn’t have time for? You’ve spoken of a sequel, but is it more likely you’d move on to something else?

JB: I do definitely want to do a sequel at some point, but I don’t want it to be my next movie. I had just written in so much action and set pieces and effects that by the time we were actually shooting, there was a lot of it that I literally didn’t have time to pull off. Every time there’s a neck snap in the movie, there was supposed to be a much more complicated kill there, but we just didn’t have time so we just went with the neck snap and hurried up and moved on. It was mostly stuff like that, but as a whole the movie is pretty much there.

DC: Josh, so you were pretty much the one breaking necks the entire time. Was acting something you kind of fell into through editing, and was it difficult to edit yourself and all those neck breaks and be objective about your performance?

JE: Well, when we started making films in high school, I was the only person that was as one hundred percent available as Joe. So I would naturally end up in front of the camera and then behind the computer when we were editing. I got really used to Joe telling me, "Okay, fall down really hard" or "Throw that over here." When we went to go make the movie, we weren’t going to be able to get the kind of cast that we’d normally love to work with. So he wrote it based on the idea that I could just be an incredibly large, physical presence in the movie. Then, on set, that actually felt like home standing with an axe or a knife and walking towards the camera and walking through the woods at night. We’ve been doing this stuff since we were kids. In editing we actually toned down a lot of my performance because we realized that just silence was absolutely better. Most of the film is just looks and glares and feral action. It wasn’t hard to objectively edit myself just because Joe’s constantly in the room. Of all the directors I’ve worked with, Joe is the most present in the editing room just because that’s how we’ve always worked together.

Almost Human is now available on Video On Demand and is also playing at IFC in New York City.

Robert Rodriguez Talks the Challenges of Bringing From Dusk Till Dawn to TV and More!

Dread Central - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 12:30

Recently we had a chance to take part in a Q&A session with visionary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez about bringing a new version of his much beloved film From Dusk Till Down to the El Rey Network! Read on for thoughts from the man himself.

"I was looking forward to the challenge of it," says Rodriguez of the series. "I thought about doing it. Someone had asked about it even before the network, and I said, 'No, Quentin and I control the rights to it. We really wouldn’t want to do it for television unless, you know, at least one of us was heavily involved,' and I didn’t see myself getting into television at that time."

"But then I thought of a way to do it. This whole season takes place from dusk till dawn, and we kind of retold the original Quentin story with the Gecko brothers and Santanico. When I first read the film script, it didn’t really take Mexico into account, and I added that into the original movie... things that I researched on my end... Aztec cultures and mythologies, etc. I found a blood cult that worships snakes, and I included that in the film. The last shot of the pyramid sort of hinted a larger mythology."

"I always thought that was a cool idea that we didn’t get to explore further in the film because it just wasn’t written that way. I left it there just to kind of, you know, tickle people’s imagination about what it could be. Now years and years later when I got involved in the El Rey Network, I thought that would be a great first show to do. A known title to lead people to the network to show them what the network was about, while also having a chance to go re-explore some of those ideas I had researched way back in the first film and expand Quentin’s story to include new characters, new trajectories and story lines for the original characters, and really build that mythology up more with the Santanico cult so that we could follow with more seasons later on."

"The challenge was finding a good new writing team. I would write the original script to the first episode to show how it would be expanded so that they could emulate that style for other episodes. It was just a lot of fun. I mean, Quentin writes the best characters, so to take those characters and expand on them and see where else they could have gone or come from was really, really exciting and fun to work with. I think that what drew a lot of our cast in as well was just getting the chance to play Quentin Tarantino characters in a television series."

So how did Rodriguez prep for a return to this vampire-infested world?

"I went back into my old archives, found original artwork I had done back at the time, original drawings I’d forgotten about, dug up all my own notes, dug up old versions of the script. Found a bunch of handwritten script pages that Quentin had written that we never shot. You know, it was kind of really awesome to go back into the archives and unearth some of the stuff we had done back then that never made it into the film and dig into it and adopt it for this new version. So it’s kind of cool going back."

"The other thing that really hit me was when I was on the bar set, which was a recreation of the original bar. That was like a time machine. There were several people in my crew that also worked on the original Dusk Till Dawn, and it really felt like we had gone back in time. It was quite a jolt to be there again, doing it again in a different way, bringing all the experience that we’ve had since the first film in all these years and bringing that to enhance this new experience. It was pretty amazing. Most people don’t get that experience in their careers."

Gamera Finally Getting Some Blu-ray Love Just in Time for Godzilla's Big Screen Return

Dread Central - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 12:00

With the mega-sized Godzilla reboot less than three months away, it's no surprise to see some classic King of the Monsters flicks getting Blu-ray releases. Zilla’s big screen return can no doubt be the inspiration for all of Gamera’s classic adventures getting their first-ever US Blu-ray releases.

The films of Daiei Studios’ monster series Gamera are unleashed and available on Blu-ray for the first time! Your favorite giant turtle returns to Earth, leaving no fire-spitting scene behind.

Beautifully captured to their lavish original cuts, viewers can experience four times the thrills of these legendary sci-fi classics like they have never seen before!

Mill Creek Entertainment is releasing what they’re billing as the Gamera: Ultimate Collection on April 29th. The good news is that this is the first time ever any of the eight Showa-era Gamera movies have been released on Region 1 Blu-ray. The bad news is that since this is Mill Creek Entertainment, it remains to be seen what the actual quality of the prints are, and even if they are HD pristine, they’re still cramming four films onto a single one-sided Blu-ray. Depending on how you feel about this next bit, it could be good or bad news; all reports indicate these will be original Japanese language version with English subtitles only – no dub jobs. Volumes One and Two will retail for $19.98 each.

Gamera: Ultimate Collection – Volume One obviously begins with Daei’s original 1965 black & white Gamera that successfully piggybacked off the popularity of Toho’s Godzilla series by introducing the world to the giant flying, fire-breathing turtle and a diluted little boy that believes this destructive prehistoric, radiation-unleashed, city-stomping daikaiju is really his best friend in the whole wide world.

With Gamera vs. Barugon (1966) the turtle-shelled titan got a Technicolor makeover as he protects Japan from a lethal quadruped creature with a battering ram tongue that shoots freezing rays and back spines that launch doomsday rainbows. Seriously, Barugon’s spines can generate an incinerating rainbow of mass destruction.

Gamera would fully take on the mantle of being the friend of children everywhere with his third outing, Gamera vs. Gyaos (1967), in which he contends with his bat-like arch-nemesis for the very first time in order to save Japan and settle a labor dispute all at the same time.

A race of evil alien squids conquering the universe in a UFO that looks like colorful beach balls strung together are the threat to beachcombing children everywhere in Gamera vs. Viras AKA Destroy All Planets (1968). This is the sequel that marked both the beginning of Daei’s cheapness (nearly half the running time is a recap of the previous films) and the beginning of what would become the go-to plotline for almost all of the this era’s remaining Gamera films (aliens disguised as humans along with a giant monster terrorize American and Japanese children until Gamera arrives to save the day).

Gamera: Ultimate Collection - Volume Two begins with my personal favorite, Gamera vs. Guiron (1969). This time Turtlezilla had to travel to an alien planet to save nosy kids abducted by brain-eating alien babes by flambéing their monstrous watchdog: an audacious looking knife-headed behemoth whose knife-head also fires ninja stars. Many consider Guiron to have been the inspiration for the kaiju “Knifehead” in Pacific Rim.

The Osaka World Expo is the battleground for Gamera vs. Jiger AKA Gamera vs. Monster X (1970). This entry marked another rarity for the kaiju genre as the four-legged dart-shooting Jiger is a female adversary. How else to explain it parasitically impregnating Gamera with a little Jiger, forcing children in a yellow submarine to take a fantastic voyage inside their favorite monster’s body?

The Showa era of Gamera movies would come to end, along with a financially bankrupt Daei, with 1971’s Gamera vs. Zigra. Japan’s answer to SeaWorld becomes the hunting grounds for bodysnatching aliens led by a colossal goblin shark plotting the enslavement of mankind. They would have gotten away with it, too, if hadn’t been for those meddling kids and their dumb fire-breathing turtle.

Rounding out the disc is the rarest of Gamera flicks (and with good reason): the deplorable 1980 Gamera: Super Monster. Primarily a lame clip show featuring only a few seconds of new Gamera footage, if you like seeing alien invaders being thwarted by kids assisted by sexy Japanese women in Superman-style costumes, then you might find something to like about it.

If you don’t have Blu-ray technology, then Mill Creek still has something for you in the form of the Gamera Legacy Collection, also streeting April 29th. All eight of the original movies being released to Blu, along with the 1990’s “Heisei” Gamera trilogy (Gamera: Guardian of the Universe, Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion, Gamera 3: Revenge of Irys), are being released together in a four-disc DVD set. That’s every Gamera flick sans 2006’s failed juvenile reboot Gamera the Brave all in one collection for $14.98.

Here’s a question to ponder: If the new Godzilla is a mega hit, will some US company try to get in on the daikaiju genre with their mega-sized Americanized reboot of Gamera? I’m fairly certain Disney owns the company that currently owns the rights to Gamera. Just sayin’.

First Official Stills From Harbinger Down

Dread Central - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 11:15

Back in May of 2013 we told you about Harbinger Down, a tense, claustrophobic creature film that will feature only practical animatronic and makeup effects. Today we have the first official images from the movie. Check 'em out!

Amalgamated Dynamics' Alec Gillis writes and directs.

Synopsis:
A group of grad students have booked passage on the fishing trawler Harbinger to study the effects of global warming on a pod of Orcas in the Bering Sea. When the ship's crew dredges up a recently thawed piece of old Soviet space wreckage, things get downright deadly. It seems that the Russians experimented with tardigrades, tiny resilient animals able to withstand the extremes of space radiation. The creatures survived, but not without mutation.

Now the crew is exposed to aggressively mutating organisms. And after being locked in ice for three decades, the creatures aren't about to give up the warmth of human companionship.

Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr., are among the most talented and passionate FX men working today, and with Harbinger Down they hope to send a message to Hollywood that there is no substitute for good ol' fashioned practical creatures. And they're taking their approach one step further by hiring the best vets in the business to create models, miniatures and stop-motion techniques to create an experience that feels 100% authentic. How awesome is that?!?

'The Sacrament' Gets A Less Violent Trailer

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 22:48

Magnet shared with us the official green band trailer for Ti West’s The Sacrament (read our review), his found-footage horror based on the horrifying true story of the Jonestown massacre.

Opening on iTunes/On Demand May 1, 2014 and in theaters June 6, 2014, “The Sacramentfollows two Vice Media correspondents as they set out to document their friend’s journey to find his missing sister. They travel outside of the United States to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia, comprised of nearly two hundred members.

Ghostbusters Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Appeared in Los Angeles - Timing Coincidental?

Dread Central - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 22:48

In the midst of all the Ghostbusters related updates while we're still mourning the passing of Harold Ramis, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man made an appearance in the city of angels, Los Angeles.

An inflated, giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was spotted on the rooftop of a parking garage at the Petersen Automotive Museum on the busy Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Curbed Los Angeles received photographic evidence of the giant marshmallow man from a tipster and investigated the phenomenon. After contacting the museum for an explanation, Curbed LA learned that the museum was testing the marshmallow man on its rooftop and it could return in the future. The timing of their testing and Harold Ramis' passing was only a coincidence. Ghostbusters' Ecto-1 Cadillac is temporarily on display in the museum's Hollywood Gallery.

Facebook user Mark Blackwell shared this close-up picture of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

Can you see the marshmallow man from where you are? Is it still up? Please share your pictures in the comments section below!

The Untitled WB/New Line Movie Is NOT 'Annabelle'

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 22:40

Yesterday Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema announced two sets of a release dates, one for The Conjuring 2, the other for a currently untitled horror film.

We were the first to speculate that this untitled horror film, in theaters October 3, 2104, was the Conjuring spinoff, Annabelle. We also made sure to note that it may or may not be the John Leonetti-directed film, and that we were working on confirmation.

We did the work for you gents and received official word from Warners that the untitled horror film is NOT the Annabelle movie. It’s something else, which we weren’t able to get details on.

Hopefully we’ll have something for you soon – and as always, keep to Bloody Disgusting for all official and confirmed news.

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 22:39

El Rey Network gave Yahoo! several new posters for “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,” premiering on El Rey Network, Tuesday, March 11th at 9pm ET/PT,

The network’s first scripted original on Robert Rodriguez’s new genre-busting cable network, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is based on the thrill-ride film of the same name.

Based on the thrill-ride film, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) after a bank heist left several people dead. While on an escape route to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family who they take hostage. Using the family RV to make a run for the Mexican border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is unknowingly populated by vampires, and forces them to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.

The series deepens the tone of the film, adds new characters and backstories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires.
