China Bigfoot: Legend of the Yeren Has a Hilarious New Poster

Tue, 01/13/2015 - 13:00

Here’s the thing… Photoshop is good for a lot of things. Putting the face of a Chinese kid on a poster is obviously not one of them. Unless of course this kid really looks like that… well then, they NAILED it!

Check out the aforementioned artwork and trailer for the film, which is directed by Ethan Wiley, below.

Synopsis:
CHINA BIGFOOT: LEGEND OF THE YEREN is the story of Chinese teenager Shi Kang and his American tutor, Denise, who crash land in the remote mountains of China. After being rescued from the crash by a giant, ape-like creature, they eventually befriend the mysterious Yeren. But a group of poachers are hot on the Yeren’s trail, and now it’s up to Shi Kang and Denise to help protect their new friend.

Behold! The Incredible Melting Man-dle!

Tue, 01/13/2015 - 11:30

I make no bones about it… The Incredible Melting Man is one of my favorite movies! I could watch it every day, anytime, anywhere. Yeah, I know it’s pretty terrible, but that doesn’t matter in the slightest bit for my money! If you’re like me, you’re gonna love this!

New for Christmas 1977, it’s the Incredible Melting Mandle. He’s cast in wax and hand-painted by skilled U.S. labor. Something to treasure for many years, to be sure, but how long can you resist the wick that beckons from atop his cranium?

When you inevitably set him aflame, he will decompose over the course of three glorious, unforgettable hours. Afterwards you get a solidified pool of viscera for your keepsake box.

Contains acrylic paint: burn in a ventilated area. Allow clearance in case of tippage. Don’t burn it unsupervised. Don’t let your kids even look at it, cause they get ideas.

This baby comes packaged in a polyethylene bag with shiny card stock header, as pictured. Stands about 5″ tall (not including the wick).

You can order one right here on Stexe’s Etsy shop! Also check out his other stuff, which includes products inspired by classics like Basket Case and Return of the Living Dead! Seriously! You need this stuff like YESTERDAY!

Annabelle Release Details:
Discover the secret of what she wants when Annabelle arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital HD on January 20, 2015, from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Reuniting the filmmakers behind 2013’s hugely successful supernatural thriller The Conjuring, Annabelle is the terrifying story of where it all began as Annabelle comes to life.

Annabelle stars Annabelle Wallis (X-Men: First Class) and Ward Horton (The Wolf of Wall Street) as the Forms; Oscar® nominee Alfre Woodard (Cross Creek, 12 Years a Slave) as Evelyn, a neighbor who owns a bookstore; Kerry O’Malley (TV’s “Those Who Kill”) and Brian Howe (Devil’s Knot) as neighbors Sharon and Pete Higgins; Tony Amendola (TV’s “Once Upon A Time”) as Father Perez; and Eric Ladin (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”) as Detective Clarkin.

Annabelle was directed by John R. Leonetti, who served as cinematographer on The Conjuring. James Wan, director of The Conjuring, produced Annabelle along with Peter Safran.

She terrified you in The Conjuring, but this is where it all began for Annabelle. Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut—visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month.

New Line Cinema’s supernatural thriller Annabelle begins before the evil was unleashed. John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long.

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now…Annabelle.

Rejoice, “Penny Dreadful” fans! A new trailer has arrived for the show’s upcoming second season, and we have every bloody pixel right here for you! Elizabeth Bathory would be proud!

Look for “Penny Dreadful” beginning Sunday, April 26th, at 10PM ET/PT.

An erotically-charged, profoundly unsettling new saga, “Penny Dreadful” completely reinvents literature’s most iconic and terrifying characters. Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein, and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul — even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations. Starring Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, and Eva Green.

In the upcoming season Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) form a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), the Creature (Rory Kinnear), and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own.

Patti LuPone will guest star as a mysterious character of great importance in Vanessa’s past. Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali), the seductive spiritualist who will pose a unique threat to our protagonists this season, along with Simon Russell Beale, who is back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. Additional guest stars include Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator; Sarah Greene as Poole’s powerful daughter, Hecate; and Johnny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.

Beetlejuice 2 – Seth Grahame-Smith Talks Sequel; Stephen King Projects; Something Wicked This Way Comes Remake

Mon, 01/12/2015 - 18:16

I feel like we’ve been talking about a sequel to Beetlejuice almost as long as we’ve been talking about Ghostbusters 3. Still, both projects seem to be moving along nicely now, and recently writer Seth Grahame-Smith talked a bit about his approach to bringing back the ghost with the most as well as his directorial debut, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and more.

As per THR:

Grahame-Smith says he is rejecting the idea of rebooting the movie with a new star in favor of bringing Michael Keaton back in a sequel set in the present day. He also took Keaton’s “less is more” advice with the character, noting that in the original Beetlejuice doesn’t appear until almost the midpoint.”

Grahame-Smith also says hopes to start filming his directorial debut, an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, this year! Also on the busy man’s plate… an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Things They Left Behind with Greg Berlanti for CBS and other movies, including a possible Gremlins reboot, another project called Last American Vampire, which takes the character on a Zelig-like journey from Jack the Ripper to the Hindenburg disaster to the Kennedy assassination, and producer Dan Lin is working with Grahame-Smith on adapting King’s It.

Talk about a busy year! Look for more on all these projects soon.
