THE CURSE OF KING TUT’S TOMB: THE COMPLETE MINISERIES - August 8th
Ever since STARSHIP TROOPERS I’ve been wondering just what in the hell Casper Van Dien has been up to, and in the last 9 years, I think it can be all summed up with this feature- part made-for-TV schlock, part rip-off of THE MUMMY and all covered with a thick layer monster movie cheese sauce. The title suggests this flick was on the boob tube, but I can’t remember seeing ads for it, so who the hell knows. I do know one thing, this shite looks like more fun than a tub of jelly with your mom as the centerpiece. Ok. Maybe not that fun…
THE LAST BROADCAST - September 26th
Thought THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT was an original piece of work? Apparently, not so much, as this flick predates that project with the same ‘documentary style’ that hit the mainstream like wildfire. Is it good? Who knows??? To tell you the truth, I’ve never heard of this flick, and just between you and me… probably won’t watch it either. Color me bored with the whole style, but this puppy’s being released just a few years too late…
VOODOO MOON- October 3rd
Ever see that movie THE CROW? Ever seen it… on weed??? If you pussywhipped it down and stuck it in a blender afterward, then you’d probably end up with this bad boy. Redeeming qualities? Jeffrey Combs and Dee Wallace Stone have cameos here, so at least there’s that… and nothing else. Yippee.
DISTURBANCE - October 10th
What do you get when you combine a serial killer, alien body snatchers and a cast of highly trained yet widely unknown professional actors? No, not the classic porno INVASION OF THE BOOTY SNATCHERS, but DISTURBANCE. Or, as we’ve seen it until now, CHOKER. Not sure what to think of the name change, or this week-ass cover with the cookie-cutter tag line, but when it was CHOKER, it sounded pretty cool. For a low budget flick, I guess it’s cool it’s finally made the big time with an STD and a complete make-over. Kind of like your mom. OH! Those never get old…
BORIS KARLOFF: ICONS OF HORROR COLLECTION - October 17th
Just in time for that big day in October, Sony has plans to revamp this classic star of the genre with 4 features they’re sure no one has ever seen nor heard of. Perfect! See the ones he’s NOT famous for, and bask in the realization that the man is a true and blue legend of the horror cinema. If ya didn’t know before, you’ll surely know after this. And if you still don’t know… well, you can always drool over WHEN A STRANGER CALLS you pansie.
GHOST OF MAE NAK – October 10th - Because when has Tartan let you down? Thai ghosts who are pissed off always equal a good time.
FEAST OF DEATH: THE DARK PLACES OF JAMES ELLROY– October 10th – Because it’s from the guy who wrote THE BLACK DAHLIA, among other things, and he’s about as f*cked up as anyone you know.
THE RED SHOES - October 24th – Because it’s about a pair of cursed red shoes. The perfect movie to watch with your shoe hungry wife- ‘see hon, that pair of shoes killed that lady!’
