    VHS tribute documentary “ADJUST YOUR TRACKING” ready for screening

    VHS. Three letters that defined an entire generation of horror fans from the ’80s until the new millennium. It redefined the way people consumed cinema in general as it allowed for movies to be watched via home media. To some, VHS tapes were the key to a vault of obscure horror flicks and ingeniously wicked cover art, all of which could be gotten conveniently at a local video store. To others, VHS tapes were a cheap, inferior medium that served best as a stepping stone to the age of DVD and Blu-ray. Not surprisingly, VHS has accumulated a cult of its own and is being given a second life amongst hardcore cinephiles, much of which is chronicled in the new documentary ADJUST YOUR TRACKING: THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE VHS COLLECTOR.

    Down and dirty with “THE DEPRAVED”

    In the past few years, the urban exploration scene has grown exponentially, with thrill seekers looking for new ways to go off the grid in a world otherwise revealed by Google Earth and GPS-enabled cell phones. However, as with all mysterious locales, there comes the danger of the territory, and it’s that danger that inspired THE DEPRAVED (formerly known as URBAN EXPLORER), the brutal new horror film from director Andy Fetscher. The film, which comes out on DVD/Blu-ray from Uncork’d Entertainment June 4, follows a group of young urban explorers in Berlin who learn the terrifying truth about a local urban legend, which Fetscher claims is partially inspired by his own experiences.

    “THE WALKING DEAD BOARD GAME” (Review)

    THE WALKING DEAD has proved to not only be a media bonanza, but a merchandising boon as well. From t-shirts and toys to DVDs and, of course, comics, collectors have been shelling out hard-earned cash for a piece of zombie memorabilia. It’s perhaps thanks to the recent interest in all things undead that the series has spawned not one, but two WALKING DEAD survival board games. While ghoulish versions of classics like WALKING DEAD Monopoly and WALKING DEAD Risk are on the way, the former are more popular with the strategy gamers than the casual, Friday night crowd. The more popular of the two, THE WALKING DEAD board game based on the Image Comics title (versus the AMC show), finds the player forced to scrounge for food while attempting to survive the ever growing zombie-hordes. With the tag line “Can you walk among the dead?”, it definitely brings the point home as the board slowly fills up with flesh-eaters and dwindling hope of survival.
