WRONG TURN 2 -October 9th
The artwork and final specs are finally out and I'm a little dissapointed by the cover. Ok, there's a wrong turn taken and a dead end found... and all they can show is the actual road they turned on? What about showcasing star Henry Rollins? Or the freaks who've returned to kill again? I do like the sack of dead meat in the road, but the tag line? Jeez. That's so original. Wow. I'm speachless at how orginal that is. Jeepers.
FLIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - October 2nd
Years ago I came up with a zombies on a plane movie called DEAD AIR in my screenplay writing class in college. Unlucky for me, I didn't do anything with it and now look: we have a zombies on a plane movie, and it's NOT the one I wrote. I could've been famous! I could've been rich! I could've been the writer of this crappy looking zombie movie! But you know what? People will wanna watch it, entirely based on the title and for no other reason. And you wanna know something else? I don't blame them. The title rocks, and I'll be there opening day to rush home and pop this mutha in my player. Because yes, I'm that cool.
ALONE IN THE DARK: UNRATED DIRECTOR'S CUT - September 25th
You may ask yourself: WHY? Out of all the movies in the world, or out of all the movies that Lionsgate owns the rights to, WHY WHY WHY would they release a Special Edition of ALONE IN THE DARK? I'll tell you why. Because The Arrow aka John Fallon has a cameo in it. A cameo so big, that Lionsgate decided they needed him to record a full feature commentary and add it alongside director Uwe Boll. Unfortunately, that commentary track was lost (i.e., stolen), but they decided to go ahead and release the special edition anyway. Tara Reid naked this time around? Unlikely, but we can always hope.
TWISTED TERROR COLLECTION -September 25th
This is one of those collections you get all excited about until you realize that you've only heard of ONE of the SIX movies in it. Then it's kind of a bummer. But as the one's I hadn't heard of before are linked to the likes of John Carpenter, Oliver Stone and Wes Craven, I think it really just makes me look an a-hole for not recognizing the greatness that this box set could be. You'll be able to pick up the entie set, or each one individually. Normally I'd just go for DR. GIGGLES, but in this case, I think I'd go for the whole thing. It's the blind buy collector's set of the century!!!
Where's the infamous "The Doctor is out... of his MIND!" tagline?
That's a classic!!!
