TAGLINE: “The road to Hell is paved in metal.”
Let the umlauts fall where they may! This thing looks like a lot of fun, and has kicked up all kinds of enthusiastic critical and audience response on the festival circuit.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU: Here’s the official description:
“High School is Hell! Metal-thrashing Brodie is an outcast in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders until he meets a kindred spirit in fellow metalhead Zakk. After starting their own band, Brodie and Zakk’s resentment of the suburban wasteland leads them to a mysterious piece of sheet music said to grant Ultimate Power to whoever plays it. But the music also summons an ancient evil entity known as Aeloth The Blind One, who threatens to tear apart existence itself. Their classmates and family become inhabited by demonic forces, tearing out their own eyes and turning into psychotic murderers… and this is only the beginning! It’s up to Brodie, Zakk and their group of friends to stop a force of pure evil from devouring all of mankind.
“A blood-soaked and hilarious horror comedy, DEATHGASM features an amazing original soundtrack of fist-banging metal and practical effects to satisfy metalheads and splatter fans alike. DEATHGASM will gush bodily fluids, rain limbs and tickle your funny bone, before tearing it out and giving you a stiff beating with it.”
Don’t you hate when this happens?
Deathgasm was written and directed by Jason Lei Howden, and stars Milo Cawthorne, James Blake, and Kimberley Crossman. The film hits select theaters starting September 13, 2015 (see the Official site link below for complete listings).
TAGLINE: “The stories are alive.”
WHAT’S ON THE MENU: This is the second full trailer for the film, this time released by Sony Pictures India (it’s in English, though). We covered the first one back in early July (which had more of a Jumanji vibe, and put a lot more emphasis on the “boy meets girl” aspects of the film), but let’s reiterate.
Once again, the official description:
Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
Goosebumps is based on the 1990’s TV series of the same name, which in turn took its inspiration from the darkly comic young adult horror novels of R.L. Stine. It will be released in the U.S. on October 16th, 2015, in 3D, Real D 3D, and conventional formats. Along with Minnette, Rush, and Black, the film features Amy Ryan, Halston Sage, Ryan Lee, and Jillian Bell. Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) directs.
Digital network and social stars team up in themed ‘One Minute Horror’ series, inspired by M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming film The Visit.

TAGLINE: Live forever. Hunt forever.
It’s pretty hard to get a sense of whether this one is going to be awesome or awful, but one thing we know for sure: Diesel’s beard is atrocious.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU: Here’s the official synopsis…
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to Kaulder, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
The Last Witch Hunter will be in theaters October 23rd, 2015, and stars Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, and Michael Caine. Breck Eisner (The Crazies) directs, from a screenplay by Cory Goodman, Matt Sazama, and Burk Sharpless.
For all those frustrated at the way The Walking Dead plunged us into the zombie apocalypse after it was well underway, behold this, the latest trailer for its spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. Looks like we’ll get to see the very beginnings of the end, including the fall of L.A. in all its terrible glory.
Makes us that much more anxious for the series premiere August 23rd.
