Greetings, all. Ambush Bug here with another AICN HORROR: ZOMBIES & SHARKS column. I usually keep my news bits for the top of my Friday column, but I had three items worth shouting about coming up in horror that couldn’t wait, so here they are!
First we have an exclusive clip from the upcoming film GANGSTERS, GUNS, & ZOMBIES. The film is set to be released on DVD & BluRay on December 11th and VOD November 15th. I will most definitely be covering it on AICN HORROR soon. Here’s the official synopsis; In post-zombie England, a botched robbery leads a motley crew of thieves into an apocalyptic battle with a zombie horde. and here’s an exclusive clip to tide you over until December.
And the trailer for the film.
One of the more effective shark horror films in recent years was Andrew Traucki’s THE REEF (reviewed here). Andrew has a new film that he is working on called THE JUNGLE and though this time he is keeping the creature terrorizing the humans in this film under wraps, he has released a few images to tease us. Here’s the official synopsis of the film; Written and directed by Traucki, “The Jungle” tells the story of big cat specialist, Larry Black, who ventures into the remote Indonesian jungle with his filmmaker brother, Ben; to investigate reported sightings of the endangered Javan leopard. Their trek into the jungle becomes ever more dangerous - with the realization they are being stalked by a deadly unseen predator. With Traucki’s gift for ratcheting up the tension, I can’t wait to check out this film. You can be a part of the film to by participating in the film’s Indiegogo Campaign to help make THE JUNGLE a reality. Find out more about the film . on its Facebook page. Here’s Traucki now to talk about THE JUNGLE!
Last but most certainly not least is some news on THE PROFANE EXHIBIT which is inching ever closer to completion as they wrapped Marian Dora’s segment “Mors in Tabula” this week. With cool anthologies like LITTLE DEATHS (reviewed here), THEATRE BIZARRE (reviewed here), V/H/S (reviewed here), and THE ABC’s OF DEATH (haven’t seen it yet) being released in the last year, it looks like the horror anthology is making a comeback. If you haven’t heard of THE PROFANE EXHIBIT yet, it is an anthology made by some folks completely comfortable hanging out on the fringe and it’s looking to curb stomp those other anthologies into the ground. As the pics show you, this is definitely something gore hounds and lovers of the weird are going to howl for. I’ve seen snippets of this and believe me; it goes places you can’t imagine. Here’s the official synopsis for the film;
THE PROFANE EXHIBIT is an extreme international horror anthology film that was conceived, written, and produced by David Bond and Manda Manuel. Legendary horror writer Ray Garton wrote the wraparound segment, and Scott Swan (Showtime’s MASTERS OF HORROR) wrote the screenplay. Jeremy Kasten, director of such films as the recent WIZARD OF GORE remake, serves as the film’s editor.
THE PROFANE EXHIBIT - Deep within the underbelly of Paris, there is a club which is the home of a secret, wicked society. At first it resembles an ordinary fetish or goth nightclub, but hidden within the cavernous building are many hidden rooms. One of which is known as “The Room of Souls,” a private gathering place of the world’s richest and most evil people. Their host is the elegant yet frightening Madame Sabatier. For their amusement, each member takes a turn and spins a true tale of their depravity: A good wife learns that her husband goes out at night to abduct and murder young women; A botched suicide attempt leads to a drug induced dream; A girl is believed to be possessed by a demon and her overly religious parents enlist the help of a corrupt reverend who has his own sinister plans; We are invited inside the deranged mind of a respected surgeon as he takes us on a guided tour of life, death, and everything in between; A young street prostitute crosses paths with a charismatic flesh trader and is forced to take an unspeakable journey of sex, violence, and murder; A nun is abducted off the streets of Rome and held captive for over a year turning her into a feral, murderous creature to be unleashed on society; A chance encounter on a fateful bus ride for an unsuspecting girl who dreams of riches and fame is her undoing; A man picks up a woman in a nightclub and soon finds himself at the mercy of a cult of women who believe consumption of their sacrifice will bring them to their highest form of female dominance; An unflinching look into darkest Africa where human life is traded for fortune and the most unspeakable atrocities are committed. It truly is a profane world, and this is THE PROFANE EXHIBIT. There are no boundaries.
