  • Unrated trailer for “HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN” blasts on-line

    Rutger Hauer does some baby talk, heads roll and there’s abundant homeless homicide on display in the funny and graphic (kiddies beware!) preview of Jason Eisener’s HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN. See it after the jump!

    Ain’t It Cool News nabbed the preview, which features Hauer as the “Hobo”—an angry, fed-up vagabond who turns vigilante and decides to bring justice to his city’s streets—with a shotgun, of course. (We previously reported on a first viewing of the trailer and interviewed the filmmakers here.) In another piece of cool news, the film’s official site had this blog post from Eisener:

    “On Friday, September 3, select Canadian theatres will be screening our HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN teaser trailer in front of Robert Rodriguez’s new film MACHETE. Seeing something you have created, blown up to 35mm film is something special for any filmmaker. The only other time this has happened for us was with the original HOBO trailer, which had the amazing opportunity to play with GRINDHOUSE in Canadian cinemas. That was a very exciting time for us, and I can’t wait to relive it this weekend.” We’ll be bringing you more on HOBO as it gets closer to its own release.

  • First clip from “LET ME IN”

    Originally posted on 2010-09-02 21:58:16 by Samuel Zimmerman

    Earler today, a French poster for LET ME IN showed up online and now, the first clip from the film has hit. Hit the jump to find out why, as many tales have told us before, you should always check the back seat. 

    This is actually the first half of an extended clip shown at San Diego Comic-Con this year, and it’s a shame it cuts off where it does as the car wreck that ensues is nothing short of stunning, and really got my hopes up for this English-language remake. 

    Directed by Matt Reeves, LET ME IN hits everyhwere October 1.

    PARANORMAL ACTIVITY wrier/director, Oren Peli is sticking to his guns- aside from his ucming Sci-Fi shaky-cam flick, AREA 51, he’s just inked a deal with ABC to bring the verite-styled thriller series, THE RIVER to homes everywhere. Hit the jump for the details!

    Deadline reports that, “according to one description- THE RIVIER follows the story of a famed adventuter/tv personality who goes missing and is presumed dead deep in the Amazon. His friends and crew go to look for him on their state-of-the-art research vessel.”

    Sounds a bit like CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST: THE SERIES.

  • Get some “BEAVER” with new horror/comedy short

    Originally posted on 2010-09-02 18:31:01 by Chris Alexander

    Fans of more exuberant splatterthons should keep their eyes peeled for THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM, a 12-minute lunatic bloodbath musical that is as hilarious as it is vomitous. Produced for peanuts by Montreal-based theater duo Jerome Sable and Eli Batalion, BEAVER DAM stars Canadian comedian Sean Cullen as a demonic camp counselor whose campfire tales turn lethal.

    As the evil guide starts bloodily dismembering and massacring the unluckier campers, he wails like Freddy Mercury. The music swells the blood spills and a gawky young camper must rally the troops, wail-rock anthems and save the day. If it sounds ridiculous, it is—and intentionally so. But the sheer amount of energy packed into the film’s lean running time will blow your brains, and most assuredly rock your world. The film will have its world premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, where THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM will screen on Thursday, September 9 before the mullet comedy FUBAR 2. In a TIFF first, the film will be part of both the Midnight Madness program AND the Short Cuts Canada program. It will then have its international premiere at the 2010 Sitges festival in Barcelona, Spain, running October 7-12. Other dates include:

    Atlantic Film Festival (Sept. 16-25)

    Fantastic Fest, Austin, TX (Sept. 23-30; North American premiere)

    Calgary International Film Festival (Sept. 24-Oct. 3)

    Edmonton International Film Festival (Sept. 24-Oct. 2)

    Screamfest, Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 8-17)

    Watch the teaser trailer below, and learn more about this raucous gem here.

  • Undead Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson to take on “BREATHERS”?

    Originally posted on 2010-09-02 18:06:31 by Samuel Zimmerman

    Since the announcement that Oscar winner Diablo Cody (JUNO, JENNIFER’S BODY) had secured the rights to produce an adaptation of S.G. Browne’s zombie-rights novel, BREATHERS: A ZOMBIE’S LAMENT, the project has been relatively quiet. Today, there’s word that two pretty interesting and high profile stars are attached to the film. Hit the jump to learn more!

    Pajiba is reporting that INCEPTION’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt and IRON MAN 2’s Scarlett Johansson are circling BREATHERS and loosely lined up to essay Andy and Rita, the novel’s undead protagonists.

    Here’s a synopsis of the hip, ghoulish tale: “Meet Andy Warner, a recently deceased everyman and newly minted zombie. Resented by his parents, abandoned by his friends, and reviled by a society that no longer considers him human, Andy is having a bit of trouble adjusting to his new existence. But all that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls in Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and Jerry, a 21-year-old car crash victim with an exposed brain and a penchant for Renaissance pornography. When the group meets a rogue zombie who teaches them the joys of human flesh, things start to get messy, and Andy embarks on a journey of self-discovery that will take him from his casket, to the SPCA, to a media-driven class-action lawsuit on behalf of the rights of zombies everywhere.”

    I recently read BREATHERS and while zombie purists will most likely not be into it, the book is often funny, interesting and clever (if not a bit too influenced by Chuck Palahniuk) and definitely fits with Cody’s sensibilities. The film has been scripted by Geoff Latulippe (this week’s GOING THE DISTANCE). Stay tuned.

  • “COLIN” U.S. screenings news, DVD art/details

    Originally posted on 2010-09-02 16:49:59 by

    Having won all kinds of acclaim, and attention for its $70 budget, over the last year or so, British filmmaker Marc Price’s zombie feature COLIN is finally making its way to American venues. Fango got the scoop on some of the initial bookings, as well as cover art and specs for a pair of upcoming DVD releases.

    Alastair Kirton stars in the title role, a young man who becomes zombified during an undead outbreak; the movie follows him as he makes his way through postapocalyptic suburbia, still retaining traces of his past humanity. U.S. distributor Walking Shadows is currently finalizing the location of the movie’s North American premiere at a top haunted attraction. Already nailed down are the following screenings:

    • Friday-Thursday, September 24-30 at the Facets Cinematheque, Chicago, IL

    • Friday, October 1 at the Guild Cinema, Albuquerque, NM

    • Friday, Oct. 15 at the Telluride Horror Show, CO

    • Thursday-Monday, Oct. 21-25 (exact date TBA) at the Spooky Movie Film Festival, Washington, DC

    • Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Knoxville Horror Film Festival, TN

    More dates and the premiere location will be announced shortly; keep an eye on COLIN’s official website and Facebook page for updates.

    The movie will be available in single- and double-DVD editions October 19, with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and 2.0 stereo soundtracks. The solo disc will include a Price commentary track, while the two-discer will additionally contain:

    • Deleted scenes with Price commentary

    • 40-minute “The Making of COLIN” documentary

    • Original UK theatrical trailer

    • Exclusive: Price’s new short film THE END

    Retail price is $29.95 for the double-DVD set, $19.95 for the single. You can watch COLIN’s trailer below, and look for an article by Price on the movie’s creation in Fango #298, on sale in October.
