Today is a day for crazy trailers. We just showed you the batshit insane sneak peek at acclaimed Japanese cult director Takashi Miike's Yakuza Apocalypse. If you've recovered from that blistering bit of action cinema centering around kung fu, vampires, and killer frogs, then we have something else that might be right up your alley. It involves the Living Dead, an 80s action icon and a former NBA All-Star. I see your face. You're more than intrigued! And we know you want to watch the first trailer for Navy Seals Vs. Zombies.
After losing all contact with the Vice President during a routine campaign stop in Louisiana, the U.S. Government sends in a team of Navy SEALs for the rescue. Dropped into a warzone, the SEALs quickly discover that they aren't dealing with a normal enemy. The city is under siege by hordes of fast moving, flesh eating undead. »
We’ve seen pretty much everything and everyone fight zombies by now, with everybody from Jesse Eisenberg to Abraham Lincoln to Frankenstein. Sure the shtick has definitely ran its course, but it would be a Cannon Films-era Dudikoff fan dream down the drain if I didn’t gush about how excited we are for Anchor Bay’s upcoming Navy Seals Vs. Zombies, which teams Rick Fox (Former NBA player, Dope, Sharknado 3), Michael Dudikoff (The American Ninja series (!), Olympus Has Fallen), Molly Hagan (“iZombie”, Election, Some Kind of Wonderful, “Instant Mom”), Ed Quinn (“Revenge”, “Mistresses”, “True Blood”), Olympian LoLo Jones and real Navy SEALs, all ready to give some rabid flesheaters some serious ass kicking. Growing up, nobody was cooler than Dudikoff, so count me in with one, which hits Digital HD on Friday, September 25th and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on Tuesday, October 6th from Anchor Bay Entertainment. »

This marks an increase over last year representing an estimated 377 lives saved on Illinois roads.

"True Detective" is back for a new season. I posted some overall thoughts on the early episodes on Wednesday, and I have a review of the premiere coming up just as soon as I display some Meryl Streep-type expressive creativity... "Everybody gets touched." -Jordan The first season of "True Detective" opened with a lot of layers of storytelling — meeting Marty, and then Rust, being interviewed by the cops in 2012, with their stories sometimes bringing us back to the case from 1995, and sometimes bouncing to other stages of their partnership — but what was at the moment a relatively compact story itself. In the 1995 scenes, these guys were already partners, albeit relatively new to each other, they got a case, and they followed it. That allowed Nic Pizzolatto and company to dive in deep on exactly who these guys were, since ultimately the show was much more interested in being a »

iZombie series creator Rob Thomas revealed earlier today that the hit series was renewed for a second season. The CW Network hasn't confirmed how many episodes were ordered, or if iZombie Season 2 will debut in midseason once again, or if it will get a fall 2015 debut on The CW. The series debuted on March 17, with 2.34 million viewers tuning in for the premiere.
The show centers on Rose McIver's Olivia "Liv" Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out... until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains - she's taken a job in the Seattle coroner's office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John »

The Descent arguably made being stuck underground scary again, with intelligent use of the darkness and just a hint of claustrophobia half of the job of scaring the audience was done before the creatures even made an appearance on screen. Beneath may not want to be compared to Neil Marshall’s movie, but as a fan I can’t help but compare the two.
Beneath may claim it is inspired by true events, but we know that this is a statement that is used as a marketing tool to get attention but means nothing when it comes to historical fact. In the movie we see a crew of coal miners trapped 600 feet below the ground. »
