Linda Hamilton is back in this trailer for BAD BEHAVIOR!Coming to DVD on October 22nd is BAD BEHAVIOR starring Linda Hamilton, Ted McGinley, & Hallee Hirsh (GREY’S ANATOMY). The film is described as; Zoe, a teenager hired for an overnight babysitting assignment from a seemingly perfect family. The only worry she has is avoiding the unwelcome advances of teen brothers Tyler and Jack. Things go awry when Zoe suddenly finds herself in a bathroom groggy and confused with only the two youngest kids with her. While Tyler tries to explain how they got in there, an intruder attempts to break the door in. Soon Zoe discovers the “intruder” is Jack, who’s had a psychotic break. The kids decide to wait out the night in the bathroom, as they expect their parents back in a few hours. When that help never arrives, they plot and attempt another escape, only to further anger Jack in the process. Zoe begins to realize that nothing is as it seems in this house, and that she isn’t the first babysitter to learn this lesson.
Babysitters in trouble are always in style for the Halloween season. Here’s the trailer below.
This BANSHEE CHAPTER One-Sheet is Something to Shriek About!Produced by Zachary Quinto and Before the Door Pictures, THE BANSHEE CHAPTER stars DEXTER/SLEEPY HOLLOW’s Katia Winter, TRUE BLOOD’s Michael McMillian, & SILENCE OF THE LAMBS’ Ted Levine and is going to be available on Video On Demand December 12, 2013 and in theaters on January 10, 2014 through XLrator Media. The film is described as centering on a young, female journalist (Winter) who follows the mysterious trail of a missing friend (McMillian) that had been experimenting with mind-altering chemicals developed in secret government drug tests. Levine plays the role of a rogue counter-culture novelist with a penchant for substance abuse and firearms who leads the journalist into the mystery of dangerous chemical research. A fast-paced blend of fact and fiction, the film is based on real documents, actual test subject testimony, and uncovered secrets about covert programs run by the CIA.
Nothing like a government conspiracy involving mind-altering chemicals to pique my interests. Check out the new one-sheet below and the trailer for the film below that!
Future Santa Kicks Ass in INFINITE SANTA 8000!From the web-series of the same name, INFINITE SANTA 8000 is an all new feature length adventure featuring Jolly Old St. Nick. Filmmakers Michael Neel and Greg Ansin have put together a full length film sequel of sorts to the popular animated webseries (found here.
Here’s the synopsis; A thousand years ago the world completely collapsed. Not much remains, except for the mutants, scum, and robo-people. Everyone must kill to survive. Even Santa. It is the year 8000. War, famine, and disease have ravaged the earth, transforming it into an inhospitable, desolate wasteland. Infinite Santa – half human and half machine – survives any way he can in this bleak world. Despite his tough existence, Infinite Santa still dreams of keeping the Christmas spirit alive by spreading goodwill and cheer to the nice people of the world. But as the years have passed it has become harder for Infinite Santa. Instead of good people, all he finds are evildoers and hideous, no-good robo-mutations. His one ray of hope is Martha, a robot girl full of the Christmas spirit. He rescued her from a deadly situation, and now she is like a daughter to him. They have a hard life but a good one, living on Santa’s ranch with his robo-reindeer. But Santa’s luck is about to run out. Santa’s arch-enemy, the evil mad scientist Dr. Shackleton, has found Santa again. Shackleton hates Santa and his stupid holiday, and will stop at nothing to uncover Infinite Santa’s mysterious secrets…and then destroy Infinite Santa once and for all. Dr. Shackleton is no fool. He knows how powerful Infinite Santa is, and has built an army to destroy him and Martha. Batsharks, Crabmonkeys, Dragonfly Snakes, Octo-Blobs, and Skin-Bots - and if they can’t kill Infinite Santa, a 100-foot Evil Easter Bunny should do the trick. This fight will test Infinite Santa to his limits. He’ll need machine guns, flamethrowers, machetes, knives, jet packs, ornament grenades, and everything else in his arsenal just to survive.
Just in time for Christmas, INFINITE SANTA 8000 will be released on Video On Demand December 1. The trailer’s below!
