    You can own the “JOHN DIES AT THE END” meat monster

    Don Coscarelli’s JOHN DIES AT THE END is an intensely bizarre, endearing trip of a movie. One of the highlights is undoubtedly the old-school FX that went into creating the jaw dropper of a meat monster that comes together from reanimated cuts of flesh. Created by Robert Kurtzman, that same slab of creature is now available to display, or wear!

    Trailer: The deadpan “EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL”

    Art is hard, and in EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL it comes at the expense of others’ lives. The film, which premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival is hitting VOD April 5 and its new trailer looks to tell a bloody, darkly comedic tale of inspiration.

    When Lars’s art dealer Ronny arranges a teaching job in a small town as a “therapeutic measure” to stir up his creative juices, things don’t quite turn out as planned.  At first, life in the peaceful small town seems rosy, as he settles in and impresses beautiful fellow colleague Leslie (Georgina Reilly) by taking in the brawny, mute Eddie (Dylan Smith) after the latter’s caregiver passes away. But Lars soon discovers that the façade of serenity hides something unimaginable: Eddie suffers from a rare form of sleepwalking that transforms him from a docile, cereal-obsessed art student into a ravenous sleepwalkingcannibal. Initially horrified by Eddie’s dark secret, Lars becomes enthralled by the not-so-gentle giant. Exceptional art comes at a very high price…and how far is Lars willing to go for his next masterpiece?

    For more on EDDIE, you can see our Tribeca Film Fest review here, and pick up Fango #322 (on sale now) for a chat with director Boris Rodriguez.

    Full “WORLD WAR Z” trailer: Is this what a zombie blockbuster looks like?

    The undead are ubiquitous in popular culture. While they still toil in the classic roots of outbreak and post-apocalypse on AMC, last year saw them enter children’s film and February brought us a teen-focused romantic comedy. Now, with the big screen adaptation of Max Brooks’ novel,  we have our first zombie blockbuster—which looks none too different than a typical global disaster film.

    The full trailer for WORLD WAR Z sells little of the zombies, themselves. They are pure digital chaos, and seem to be a stand-in for any sort of pandemic. Instead, the preview paints familiar strokes of an everyman, his enjoyable family breakfast and soon, the global mission he’s on to stop the entire world from crumbling.

    Marc Forster directs. Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos and David Morse star. WORLD WAR Z is out June 21. [iTunes]

    Fango Flashback: “WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?” (1976)

    Perhaps the strongest aspect of Narcisco Ibáñez Serrador’s WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? is its decision to trade backstory for context. There’s no explicit, supernatural reason for the juvenile murderous rampage on the island of Almanzora, but if you’re looking for an explanation why, the real world horrors of the opening titles are a good, if grim, place to start.

    “COME OUT AND PLAY” (Movie Review)

    [This review was initially published out of Fantastic Fest in September 2012, it is reposted below in light of the film’s theatrical and VOD release.] 

    On the surface, COME OUT AND PLAY is simply a flat, soulless remake of one of the killer kid greats, WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? Coupled with one-named director Makinov’s bullshit, it’s a joke.
