Greetings, all. Ambush Bug here with another AICN HORROR: ZOMBIES & SHARKS column. Because I was preparing for this weekend’s C2E2 Convention in Chicago, I wasn’t able to finish my reviews for this week, but fear not, I’ll have a full column for you all on Monday come hell or high water. But I do have a couple of news bits you might find interesting. Before I do that, I just wanted to remind folks that I’ll be at the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in the McCormick Place just south of Downtown Chicago this weekend checking out the sights and sounds of the con and doing book signings for my current miniseries THE JUNGLE BOOK: LAST OF THE SPECIES and my upcoming comic WEREWOLVES: THE HUNGER from Zenescope Entertainment from 5:00-6:00pm on Friday and again from 5:00-6:00pm on Saturday at the Zenescope booth. So come on by to pick up some of my comics or just say hey!
And now for some horror news...
For those who haven’t caught THALE yet, you reallu should do yourself a favor and do so. It’s a pretty amazing film and it’s finally available on DVD & BluRay this week. Check out my review of the film and interview with the director Aleksander Nordaas here.
The Official Clive Barker Store is now open for business. Follow the link here for official art, books, jewelry, apparel, and miscellaneous merch from the master of the macabre and fantasy!
From the writer of PONTYPOOL comes HELLMOUTH, a new horror film, directed by John Geddes (EXIT HUMANITY), the film stars Stephen McHattie (PONTYPOOL, THE WATCHMEN) as Charlie Baker, a dying grave keeper who’s forced to take one final job. Being a huge fan of PONTYPOOL, I can’t wait to see this one when it’s released later this year.
The film has an IndieGoGo page and follow this link to find out how you can help support it!
I have a pair of trailers from Uncork’d Entertainment.
One’s for a film called THE DEPRAVED (formerly URBAN WARRIOR) which played the 2011 Fantastic Fest in Austin.
And the other’s called THE CLOTH with Danny Trejo and Eric Roberts.
I’ll be reviewing both films soon in future AICN HORROR columns.
Here’s the brand new poster for V/H/S/2 which is going to be released on iTunes/On Demand June 6, 2013 and in theaters July 12, 2013 from Magnet Releasing.
Find out more about V/H/S/2 here and look for a review of this film here on AICN HORROR very soon!
Speaking of V/H/S, Nick Nafploitis sent in a really fascinating interview with the iconic star of the first film, Hannah Fierman. Out of all of the shorts in the movie, her turn as the poster girl for why you should be careful picking up strange girls in a club was by far the most memorable.
You can find the interview by clicking here. I promise you’ll end up “liking” it!
Last week, I let you know about an IndieGoGo campaign from the makers of THE TAINT (reviewed here) for the upcoming film SCIENCE TEAM. You can find out more info about how you can be a part of it here and below is a behind the scenes look at the film and it’s twisted creators!
XLRator is finally releasing INBRED to the masses on Video on Demand 8/22/13 and DVD on 9/24/13. You can check out my review of the film here and look for more info on the film here. In the meantime, check out this brand new poster for the film!
Want another new trailer? How about this brand spankin’ new one from HATCHET III. This one is not safe for work and stars Dannielle Harris and Kane Hodder. Check it out!
And finally…Bloody Cuts has a track record of producing some of the best short horror around. Here’s another excellent short from them called DON’T MOVE!
See ya next week, folks!
