TRAILER: Rooster Teeth’s ‘Theater Mode’ web series aims to roast B-movie and genre fare

WHAT’S ON THE MENU: Watch enough genre fare, and you quickly realize most of it is… well, pretty crappy. That is, in fact, the very reason for Gourmet Horror’s existence. Premiering today (April 29th, 2016) at 4pm CT on RoosterTeeth.com and AchievementHunter.com, check out the new B-movie skewering series Theater Mode. Think a swearier, snarkier MST3K. The team from Achievement Hunter are determined to sit through some of the worst B-movies ever made… and they want you to suffer along with them. Watch along and experience these guilty pleasures of cinema with the Achievement Hunter team as they comment, critique, and pan the film in their unique way. New episodes of Theater Mode premiere each month exclusively for subscribers. 

Theater Mode combines the best and worst of entertainment into a big, disgusting, boob-infused cocktail of blood and poor acting,” says Geoff Ramsey, Rooster Teeth co-founder. “Making fun of the hard work of others has been the cornerstone of our company, and getting to finally do it to films as well? Let’s just say my self-worth has skyrocketed.”

As part of Rooster Teeth’s subscription video platform, Theater Mode will be available exclusively to subscribers (known in the Rooster Teeth community as “Sponsors”) via RoosterTeeth.comAchievementHunter.com, or the Rooster Teeth App. Rooster Teeth’s official mobile video platform is available for free in the App Store and Google Play. Users may sign up for a complimentary 30-day Sponsorship trial in the app, or at RoosterTeeth.com/Sponsorship and receive instant access to all Sponsor benefits (early and/or exclusive access to content, access to live broadcasts, and a 5% discount on Rooster Teeth store merchandise). After the trial period, Sponsorship runs $4.99 per month.

April 11th, 2016: Happy CRYPTFAMILY Day, everyone!

TAGLINE: “Weird Is Good.”

WHAT’S ON THE MENU: The 11th of each month is CRYPTFAMILY day, and we celebrate today by proudly sharing why we love being WEIRD. We asked members of our #CryptFamily Facebook group to proclaim their weirdness to share with all of you, and it’s amazing to see how strong we are!

This brand is for freaks, weirdos, outsiders, outcasts, horror lovers, alien believers, true crime fanatics… and we embrace everyone.

#CryptFamily celebrates #WeirdisGood and welcomes “freaks” with open arms. We are an island of misfit toys, coming happily together to say “fuck you” to anyone who puts us down or wants us to conform. Our message is spreading, and our journey is just beginning. Those popular CryptTV videos on Facebook are just the start of our mission. If that sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, sign up right here, right now.

This month’s CRYPTFAMILY newsletter gathered together the musings of a number of our members, in response to a Facebook post asking a single, simple question:

Why are you weird?

We hope you find our answers inspiring. Or intriguing. Or at least mildly amusing. And we also hope you’ll join us, by signing up at CryptTV.com. Because, you know: #WeirdIsGood.

TRAILER: ‘Bed and Breakfast’ (2016) reimagines gruesome Sawney Bean cannibal clan in 21st century

WHAT’S ON THE MENU: As the story goes, back in 15th or 16th century Scotland, the 48-member cave-dwelling Sawney Bean clan survived by ambushing nighttime travelers, hauling their corpses back to the cave—and eating them. Supposedly, they lived and thrived this way for some 25 years, producing an entire bloodline of increasingly-inbred children and grandchildren. MOMO Productions’ debut horror short updates the story to the present day, with a Bed and Breakfast inn in place of the cave.

Bed and Breakfast stars Gareth Morrison and Stacey Mitchell and will be directed by Craig-James Moncur.

TAGLINE: “Will you survive the night?”
