WEEKLY SLAUGHTER #17



January is either seen as 'dump month' for flicks hitting theaters, or 'release heaven' for flicks hitting DVD. It makes sense, since January is cold and not fun weather-wise, people would watch something from the comfort of their own home than go out to the theater. We'll see how this week's theatrical release of THE HITCHER remake fares up (let's hope it bombs and ends the remake fiasco head on), and while there may not be A LOT of new stuff hitting DVD, TCM:THE BEGINNING is quite the juggernaut of a release that's sure to sell like supercrack on the streets. And for shits and giggles, we have the sweet cover of GRIM REAPER(which will likely suck), and some indie-zombie fun with DIE YOU ZOMBIE BASTARDS! Yes, it looks like January has a little bit for everybody...

SLAUGHTERING THEATERS THIS WEEK

THE HITCHER

Rated R for strong bloody violence, terror and language.
Directed by Dave Meyers
Starring Sean Bean, Sophia Bush, Zachary Knighton
Run Time: ???



Grace Andrews and Jim Halsey are a collegiate couple who are tormented by the mysterious hitchhiker John Ryder, a.k.a. The Hitcher. The young couple hit the road in a 1970 Oldsmobile 442, en route to spring break. But their pleasure trip soon turns into a waking nightmare. The initial encounters with Ryder are increasingly off-putting for Grace and Jim, and they bravely fight back when he ambushes them. But they are truly blindsided when he implicates them in a horrific slaying and continues to shadow them. The open road becomes a suspenseful, action-packed battleground of blood and metal as, in trying to elude not only Ryder but also New Mexico State Police Lieutenant Esteridge's officers, Grace and Jim must fight for their lives and face their fears head-on.

It is 1969 - the height of the Vietnam War. Two young men are spending a last weekend with their girlfriends before being shipped overseas to the war. At the same time, the only major business - a meat-packing plant - goes out of business. One of the men who works in the plant is Thomas Hewitt - a deformed, demented psychopath who will become known as Leatherface - and when he finds out what is happening he savagely murders the foreman of the plant. The two young men and their girlfriends are headed down a lonely highway when they are involved in an accident that cripples their vehicle. Soon they encounter the sheriff - who is not really the sheriff but the psychopathic uncle of Leatherface - and he kidnaps 3 of them to take them to his home for the developing monster Leatherface to "refine" his murderous abilities. The one girl who escaped unnoticed attempts to rescue them with the help of a biker whose girlfriend was killed by the sheriff, and what follows is a night of sheer terror at the hands of a family of cannibalistic, inbred psychopaths...

Supposedly, for her own protection, Rachel is locked up in a secure mental health facility.
