A trailer for Martin Owen's horror satire 'L.A. Slasher' has arrived bringing with it slickness, a classic 80's tune and an Andy Dick voiceover. 'Death to Reality' cries out the new trailer so much so that you could be mistaken to think that that is the actual title to the feature from writer/director Owen. 'L.A. Slasher' stars Mischa Barton ('Apartment 1303'), Dave Bautista, Marisa Lauren, Danny Trejo ('VANish'), Abigail Wright, Drake Bell, Andy Dick, Brooke Hogan, Eric Roberts, Frank Collison, Elizabeth Morris, Korrina Rico and hottie Tori Black (below). And even though the trailer has a souped-up music video feel to it hopefully the accompanying synopsis below will help clear things up a bit. »
Martin Owen’s L.A. Slasher has done an excellent job establishing a good sized buzz for itself, with convention appearances, viral marketing and the promise of bringing the “death to reality TV”, which sounds like one excellent plan to me. While just the synopsis alone is enough to turn most horror fans on, today the debut trailer for the horror satire on all things plastic dropped and I must say, it looks like one fun ride. Check it out!
“a biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous, L.A. Slasher explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the »

I adore bad movies. I own Foodfight! on DVD. I’ve made countless friends furious when I forced them to sit through Manos: the Hands of Fate. I own a VHS player partly so I can watch my copy of Miami Connection. Terrifyingly personal psycho-drama turned black comedy The Room, no-budget bigfoot horror Night of the Demon, the many sordid works of Neil Breen, real estate agent by day, least charismatic person to ever act by night- these are movies that I enjoy, truly, and, strange as it may seem, they mean something to me. When I tell people that Birdemic is one of my favorite films ever, I mean it in every way, with no ironic distance. As silly as they are, as strange as the cult of bad movie watchers is, these things are more than just trainwrecks to be watched with a sense of sadistic joy; they’re odd, »

In the lineage of movie sequels that outdid their predecessors, there’s The Godfather Part 2, Aliens, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, and now…Sharknado 2: The Second One. Sharknado premiered on SyFy last July, and became an instant hit with audiences, aided by the fact that viewers were encouraged to Tweet about the movie as they watched it.
What was it that made the latest offering from The Asylum so eminently watchable? The gleefully silly, go-for-broke absurdity of it all, where nothing was outside the realm of possibilities, and the low $2 million budget didn’t stop them crafting some wild set-pieces, even if the effects were diabolical, the acting mostly terrible, and the central plot completely forgettable.
It was a charming movie, and the clear love with which it was made earned it a place in the hearts of cineastes the world over for its “so bad it’s good” quality, »

“Sharknado” hasn’t yet jumped the shark with viewers, as Syfy’s sequel to last year’s creature feature drew a sizable crowd of 3.9 million viewers on Wednesday night — dwarfing the original’s total, according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates.

By comparison, the NBCUniversal cabler averaged 987,000 viewers in primetime for the first four weeks of July. And in recent years, its biggest recent movie prior to last night was “Swamp Shark,” which gobbled up about 2.2 million in June 2011.
In adults 18-49, “Sharknado 2″ averaged about 1.6 million viewers — nearly triple what the original attracted — and outdrew Wednesday broadcast originals like “Extant,” “Motive” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”

There were so many overtly stupid things you could call out from last night's Sharknado sequel, Sharnado 2: The Second One. But youv'e got to hand it to the creators for making a somewhat-watchable parody sequel to a film that was a parody in the first place — ooh, levels! One of the ways Sharknado 2 stayed decent was by constantly surprising you with a stream of cameos. From Airplane!'s Robert Hays to Subway's Jared Fogel, Sharknado ran the lowbrow gamut. Here's who we caught (and whether or not they lived):Kelly Osbourne Status: She knew it was coming. Robert Hays from Airplane! ... And Rachel True from The Craft Status: Both dead. Star Trek: The Next Generation child star Wil Wheaton Status: R.I.P. Comedian and famous Twitterer Kelly Oxford Status: Yes. She died. Andy Dick Status: Alive and incompetent. The Naked Cowboy Status: Not in the movie long enough to die, »

"Sharknado 2: The Second One" premiered on SyFy last night and as expected, the ridiculous factor was high and the gif-able scenes came out in full force. This sequel did not disappoint.
If you didn't watch or if you want to relive all the magic, we're taking a look back at the 23 most outrageous moments from the fine disaster film. There were actually more like 120 moments because Every minute of this movie was absolutely bonkers, but we narrowed it down to the creme de la creme.
Here you go:
1. Right off the bat (bats actually play into the film later, by the way), Fin (Ian Ziering) freaks out when he sees sharks falling from the sky outside of his plane. "It's happening again," he says to April (Tara Reid.)
2. Eventually the sharks completely take over the flight and one busts right through flight attendant Kelly Osbourne's Head.
3. Then there »

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me a million times when I’m drunk with the allure of original titles like Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators, Chupacabra Vs. The Alamo and Piranhaconda, well, I’m not sure where the shame lies, but for the sake of my own battered ego, I’ll just blame it on the alcohol.
Unfortunately my Sharknado double feature experience had to be a completely sober one, because on the contrary, I’m a terrible writer when under the influence. Yes, I’m one of the virgin souls who avoided the original Sharknado like a typical Asylum produced plague, not because of my hatred of B-Movies, but my undying devotion to Proper cult classics. Sharknado is nothing but a gory poser – a wannabe insta-classic focused only on one ridiculous gimmick and boatloads of viral marketing. Do you know why the original film was such a success? »

Sharknado 2: The Second One premiered on SyFy Wednesday night, and the campy, B-movie sequel inspired a huge array of equally entertaining tweets.
It has been several minutes since a shark did a thing. This Is Unacceptable. #Sharknado2

Al Roker deserves an Emmy for explaining the physical properties of a Sharknado without laughing. #Sharknado2TheSecondOne #Sharknado2

For reasons unknown, we all watched "Sharknado 2: The Second One" on SyFy on Wednesday night, knowing full well that it was going to be a pretty horrible movie.But the flick managed to exceed our extremely low expectations, thanks to a parade of cameos, a badass Vivica A. Fox and one of the most ridiculous endings to a TV movie (or any movie) ever. Was it still bad? Of course, but you knew that already. Here are the 5 craziest things that went down in Ian Ziering and Tara Reid's latest television masterpiece. 1.) Kelly Osbourne gets decapitated It didn't take long for the sharks to start flying and Ozzy Osbourne's daughter was one of the first to go. She got it bad too, playing a flight attendant whose head comes clean off. 2.) Tara Reid Loses An ArmAfter the traumatic plane attack, Tara's left without a limb. "This shark »

It's the bad-movie franchise that Twitter built. When Sharknado – the saga of a man, his chainsaw and a bunch of poorly CGI'd sharks flying through the air in L.A. – aired on Syfy last year, it became a surprise social-network sensation, racking up enough mentions to compete with the likes of Game of Thrones. Suddenly the Asylum, the production house known for direct-to-video knockoffs like Transmorphers and Syfy schlock like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, had a hit on its hands. The sequel, which debuted tonight, had an expensive NYC setting, »
