Syfy's "Z Nation" premieres this coming Friday, September 12th, at 10PM; and the network has released a slew of new photos plus a pair of videos that show off a few "WTF" moments from the show.

"Z Nation," produced by The Asylum, is an action-horror series about the epic struggle to save humanity after a zombie apocalypse. The 13-episode "Z Nation" stars Harold Perrineau ("Lost," "Oz"), Tom Everett Scott ("Beauty and the Beast," "Southland"), and DJ Qualls (Road Trip, "Supernatural").

The cast also includes Michael Welch (The Twilight Saga), Kellita Smith ("The Bernie Mac Show"), Anastasia Baranova (The Darkness II), Russell Hodgkinson (Big Fish), and Keith Allan (Rise of the Zombies).

Karl Schaefer ("Eerie Indiana," "Eureka," "The Dead Zone") serves as executive producer and showrunner. Acclaimed action director John Hyams (Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning) directed the pilot.

Synopsis:
"Z Nation" starts three years after a zombie virus has gutted the country, when a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all.

With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.

The Boy Next Door Is Obsessed with J Lo; Watch the Trailer

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 15:04

It's often said that Jennifer Lopez's booty has the power to drive men crazy, and The Boy Next Door sets out to prove the literal truth of that statement. Check out the trailer for the Blumhouse-produced thriller, due in theaters on January 23rd of next year!

Hill Harper, Ryan Guzman, John Corbett, and Kristin Chenoweth also star. Rob Cohen (XXX) directs the Barbara Curry-penned micro-budget movie, which will be distributed by Universal. Blumhouse is making the movie with Smart Entertainment and Nuyorican Productions.

Lopez play a newly separated mother who finds herself attracted to the teenage boy who moves in next door and befriends her son. When she starts and then abruptly ends their illicit romance, he’s not ready to let her go -- in a very Fatal Attraction kind of way. Chenoweth will play Lopez's best friend.

Look for more soon!

The Ruination of Horror? A Look at the PG-13 Rating

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 14:55

Since the PG-13 rating's inception, it has been the source of much controversy. Is it the big monster in the closet most horror fans fear? Does it ruin our genre and other genres? Honestly, it depends on how it's used, and this video takes a look at that.

Blip.TV has just brought a great examination of the rating online. Probably the most comprehensive examination of this rating ever made. It's entitled WTF Happened to PG-13?, and you're bound to learn something and be a little enraged at the same time.

For our money a horror film doesn't have to be rated R to be good. Some of the most horrific films out there, including the original Texas Chain Saw Masscare, barely have a single bloody moment.

The Legend of Hell House, Jaws, Poltergeist... I can go on and on. You know when PG-13 fails? When the movie stops being about being a good movie and starts being about getting a particular rating. Filmmakers have a habit of letting the studios be so pushy that they end up gimping themselves. That's not totally their fault either because unless you're a Hollywood golden boy like Quentin Tarantino who can make his movies as violent and over-the-top as he wants, you're pretty much crucified by the ratings board for every little thing.

Look at Kill Bill and Hatchet. Kill Bill is human-on-human violence featuring swords, guns, and anything else laying around. Rated R. Hatchet is a goofy little throwback movie about a friggin' swamp ghost with a magic-powered belt sander that needed to be cut to shreds for an R rating. It doesn't make any sense. Hell... it never made any sense.

Get Trapped by this Teaser for the It's Hell Getting Old Segment of Hellevator Man

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 12:45

Getting stuck in an elevator is scary enough, but doing so with a bunch of senior citizens? You can be sure filmmaker Patrick Rea piles on the spooky - plus a little silly - in this teaser for his "It's Hell Getting Old" segment of the Hellevator Man anthology.

Kansas City-based Rea's short stars Kip Niven (Jayhawkers, New Year’s Evil), Joicie Appell (Nailbiter), Victor Raider-Wexler (Minority Report), and Nancy Marcy. It was executive produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Lony Ruhmann.

The script, written by Rea, deals with four elderly people trapped in an elevator on their way to their 50th Class Reunion, and one of them may have forgotten to take some important medication.

The film was shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the director of photography was Hanuman Brown-Eagle.

Other segments include Vincent J. Guastini's “The Future Executive,” which centers around Devi (Sushi Girl’s Cortney Palm), a powerful young CEO who enters her office’s empty elevator for an important meeting as a gloved hand stops the doors from closing. Andy Mackenzie (Shoot ‘Em Up) plays Jack, a delivery man who follows Devi into the tiny space. The elevator doors part one more time for Liam (Donnie Darko’s James Duval), a mild-mannered office worker with an unrequited crush on Devi. A sudden power outage sets the stage for a nightmare ride ahead for the trio.

Scott Schirmer's "Tear" was also recently announced as was WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, aka Mankind, coming on board as the "Hellevator Man" and storyteller himself.

Look for more soon!

Vampire Saga/Christian Scare Mashup The Sins of Dracula Unveils a Trailer, Poster, and Premiere Date!

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 12:30

Scorpio Film Releasing is New England’s most prolific feature film production company, and their latest, The Sins of Dracula, takes on an icon and fuses him with a parody of Christian scare films. What's not to love? Here are its trailer, poster, and premiere info.

From the Press Release:
Scorpio Film Releasing presents the trailer for its newest film, The Sins of Dracula, a story of sex, sacrilege, and sin from director Richard Griffin, writer Michael Varrati, and producers Ted Marr and Stacey St. Edmunds.

The film will have its world premiere October 26th at CinemaWorld in Lincoln, Rhode Island (622 George Washington Highway).

Michael Thurber (Exhumed), Jamie Dufault (Murder University), Sarah Nicklin (Alice D), Steven O’Broin (Future Justice), Carmine Capobianco (Psychos In Love), and Samantha Acampora (Murder University) star. Artist Devon Whitehead created the original poster for the film.

"I am overjoyed with how The Sins of Dracula came out,” said director Richard Griffin. “The cast is spot on, and Michael Varrati's screenplay is wickedly satirical. I've really wanted to do a Dracula film for years, and to be able to fuse it with a parody of Christian scare films? Well, that's pure filmmaking bliss.”

For more info be sure to visit The Sins of Dracula on Facebook and on Twitter (@SinsofDracula).

Synopsis:
The Sins of Dracula centers around Billy (Dufault). As the star of his church choir, there’s nothing that brings Billy more joy than the opportunity to sing for an audience. However, as his desire to perform grows, the stalwart youth finds that waiting until Sunday to get his fix just simply isn’t enough. Going against the advice of his pastor, Billy follows his girlfriend into the world of secular entertainment, joining the local community theatre troupe. There, Billy is introduced to a whole new world, where his fellow thespians dabble in drugs, sexual perversion, and table-top gameplay. Yet, for all the newly minted depravities Billy encounters, none could prepare him for the darkest truth of them all: The theatre group is actually a front for a Satanic cult intent on raising Dracula from the grave! It’s a world where Sondheim is Satan, Broadway means blasphemy, and where taking the stage just might mean curtains... for your eternal soul.

A Teenage Hunter Arises in Author Dave Zeltserman's The Boy Who Killed Demons

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 10:30

“Have I mentioned before that I hate demons?” asks Henry Dudlow, the unlikely teenage hero of Dave Zeltserman's The Boy Who Killed Demons. Intrigued? Then read on to learn more about the upcoming novel.

Its release date is October 16th, but first Dave (pictured right) is attending the upcoming New York Comic Con (October 9-12) in The Overlook Press booth. Before he heads to the Big Apple, we'll be chatting with him about The Boy Who Killed Demons so look for our Q&A soon. In the meantime check out the synopsis and cover art below.

From the Press Release:
Like the fictional heroes who have come before him, Henry Dudlow didn’t ask for the gift (or as he sees it, curse) forced upon him. At age 13, when he should have been reading comic books, goofing off with friends, and thinking about high school, Henry discovered that he sees people differently. Instead of his mild-mannered neighbor looking like an average middle-aged man, Henry saw a disturbing creature, a demon.

Now, at age 15, he has alienated himself from his parents, his grades and social life have suffered, and he has thrown himself into the translation and study of ancient texts on the supernatural—not your average teenager’s extracurricular activity.

The Boy Who Killed Demons is written entirely as Henry’s diary, serving the purpose of recording the truth about demons in case he doesn’t survive, as well as documenting the regular dangers of high school: angry parents, a budding romance, and the school’s resident bully. When children begin disappearing throughout the Boston area, Henry’s unasked for calling challenges him to face what his ability allows only him to do: begin hunting demons. In a race against time, Henry must stop a band of demons from opening the gates to hell, all while keeping his sacred duty a secret from everyone in his life.

Filled with the heroism, teen angst, and humor of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Spider-Man, The Boy Who Killed Demons is the latest entry into the unlikely hero canon. Zeltserman’s third horror novel moves with the same heart-racing pace as his previous thrillers and expands to reach a younger audience through its teenage protagonist. This is a book that will scare teens and adults alike, all while reminding them of the perils of growing up.

Synopsis:
The setting is quiet Newton, Massachussetts, where nothing ever happens. Nothing, that is, until two months after Henry Dudlow’s 13th birthday, when his neighbor, Mr. Hanley, suddenly starts to look... different. While everyone else sees a balding man with a beer belly, Henry suddenly sees a nasty, bilious, rage-filled demon.

Once Henry catches on to the real Mr. Hanley, he starts to see demons all around him, and his boring, adolescent life is transformed. There’s no more time for friends or sports or the lovely Sally Freeman; instead Henry must work his way through ancient texts and hunt down the demons before they steal any more innocent children. And if hunting demons is hard at any age, it’s borderline impossible when your parents are on your case, your grades are getting worse, and you can’t tell anyone about your chosen mission.

Doctor Mordrid to Soon Be Casting His Spells Again on Blu-ray

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 10:15

The 1992 Full Moon flick Doctor Mordrid starring Jeffrey Combs was originally intended to be a Doctor Strange movie. Unfortunately, the rights reverted back to Marvel before Charles Band could get the film made.

With an actual Doctor Strange movie in the works, it seems fitting Band would give his pseudo-take on the character the Blu-ray treatment.

Re-Animator’s Jeffrey Combs dons his finest Doctor Strange lounge-wear to play enigmatic interdimensional sorcerer/New York landlord Dr. Anton Mordrid, sworn to protect our world by guarding the gates of the fourth dimension from his mortal enemy, the diabolical warlock Kabul (Brian Thompson, "The X-Files"), while also finding the time to for a little romance with a pretty police research consultant tenant (Yvette Nipar, “Robocop: The Series”).

When Band lost the rights to make a Doctor Strange movie, C. Courtney Joyner’s script was rewritten to create an entirely new supernatural superhero with striking similarities to Marvel’s metaphysical superhero. Alas, his only outing would be this lone 1992 feature film.

In a world where Full Moon produced countless Puppet Master, Demonic Toys, Subspecies, and Trancers sequels, how is it we only got one Doctor Mordrid flick? Perhaps because it was one of the more ambitious Full Moon flicks of the time and stop-animating dueling dinosaur skeletons was too expensive to franchise.

Following in the footsteps of Dollman and Trancers, Full Moon has announced plans to remaster Doctor Mordrid in high definition and release it on Blu-ray in a loaded special edition. Extras will include a new commentary with Charles Band and Jeffrey Combs, the original VideoZone featurette from the VHS release, rare video of William Shatner interviewing Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton (who is not in the movie), and uncut behind-the-scenes footage direct from the Full Moon vault.

The Doctor Mordrid Blu-ray will be available whenever the “master of the unknown” decides to re-open the gate to the fourth dimension. In other words, no date announced yet.

Full Moon Entertainment is constantly coming up with new and unique ways to entertain you. Keep up on all the news at FullMoonDirect.com and FullMoonStreaming.com.

Actor/director SA Wardęga just uploaded the following prank video to YouTube in which he takes his cute as a button dog and dresses it up as a killer arachnid. The first scare seems kind of silly, but it's all hilarity from there.

As a matter of fact, this has become a favorite video around here, and we're willing to be that you end up sharing it again and again too.

Check it out, and beware of giant webs and multi-legged attackers who are just looking for a good place to poop.
