A review of tonight's "The Leftovers" coming up just as soon as I ask you something stupid... "Have you ever heard of someone being responsible for someone's Departure?" -Nora When "The Leftovers" replaced its original theme song this season with Iris DeMent's "Let the Mystery Be," it was the show's most explicit statement yet not to expect any kind of concrete explanations for the Sudden Departure. At the same time, season 2 opened with plenty of new mysteries about life in and around Jarden, with images like Jerry slaughtering a goat in the diner, or the woman posing for photos in her wedding gown, or Erika digging up the box with the bird all raising questions we probably shouldn't have expected the show to answer. Yet it has, to varying degrees. Two weeks ago, Patti told Kevin that Evie and her friends Departed, though there remains the very large question »

Halloween may be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great horror and sci-fi movies arriving this Tuesday on Blu-ray and DVD. Scream Factory is keeping themselves busy with the release of both Bloodsucking Bastards and Stung (the latter in conjunction with IFC Midnight), and for those of you creature feature fans out there, Lavalantula comes home on November 3rd.
Bloodsucking Bastards stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and »

As I sit here, writing my Bloodsucking Bastards review while glancing over my shoulder towards the only entrance to my cubicle, it’s easy to understand the true horrors of this wittily hilarious vampire splatterfest. One quote in particular hits home all-too closely, when a disgruntled character realizes how perfect his “fluorescent shithole” of an office is for a corporate vamp takeover, given how few windows permit the real world’s beauty from cutting through a demoralizing darkness.
Have we not all become bloodsucking drones, clocking in countless hours of work to achieve that next (meaningless) goal just to keep the numbers crunching and dollars flowing (most of which the average worker won’t see)? The horror of Bloodsucking Bastards is not found through vampire bites, but in stinging corporate satire that seems too smart for a horror comedy – and too damn real.
Written by the L.A. comedy troupe Dr. God, »

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m an easy mark for horror comedies, so it should be no surprise that I adored the hell out of Bloodsucking Bastards, the latest project from the comedic group Dr. God and the producers at Fortress Features (The Collector, The Collection). Like a mash-up of Office Space and Fright Night, Bloodsucking Bastards takes a little time to get going but when it does, the jokes fly almost as fast as the gore, resulting in a feel-good film that’s a wonderful tribute to vampires and raucously deconstructs the modern workplace as well.
Bloodsucking Bastards follows nice-guy Evan (Fran Kranz), the acting sales manager at a small corporate office whose awkward life is about to take an unexpected turn. Expecting to be promoted by his boss (Joel Murray), Evan gets passed over for the sales management position by Max (Pedro Pascal), the smooth-talking nemesis from Evan’s college days. »

On Friday, September 4th, Scream Factory will release the hilarious vampire-infused workplace comedy Bloodsucking Bastards, which stars Fran Kranz, Pedro Pascal, Joey Kern, Emma Fitzpatrick, Joel Murray and Yvette Yates. Directed by Brian James O’Connell, the film celebrated its world premiere earlier this year at the 2015 Slamdance Film Festival and this weekend, Bloodsucking Bastards will arrive in select cities and on VOD.
Recently, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Fitzpatrick about her role in the film, collaborating with her hysterical co-stars, and getting the chance to kick some vampire ass in Bloodsucking Bastards. Fitzgerald also discussed her involvement in another great recent horror film, The Collection—produced by the same team behind Bloodsucking Bastards—and how she sees the tide changing for female actors in Hollywood today.

In early August, I met up with my longtime friends Brian James O'Connell, Justin Ware, Neil W. Garguilo, David F. Park and Sean Cowhig, collectively known as the improv troupe Dr. God, to discuss their fantastic workplace vampire comedy Bloodsucking Bastards. I've known these guys for years, from hanging out at iO West in Hollywood, where they perform as Dr. God, so I thought it would be great to get them all in one place to talk about their movie, which hits theaters in limited release and on VOD September 4 through Shout! Factory. So, we all convened at the Mud Hen Tavern in Hollywood to talk about Bloodsucking Bastards, over a Bloody Mary-filled brunch. Part of me wants to just print the entire 90-minute, tangent-filled "interview" below, because there is just so much hilarity in one place. But, instead, I'll just present a lengthy rundown of our afternoon, which »

Television’s biggest comedy, The Big Bang Theory, returned to Comic-Con today with another hilarious panel, which had surprise guest Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) in attendance, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Set to start its ninth season in the fall, the show ended Season 8 with a few big cliffhangers, including Amy and Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) break-up and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) heading off to Las Vegas to get married. Of course, many of the fans at the panel has their questions ready for creator Chuck Lorre and series showrunner Steven Molaro. And while the panel were noticeable mum on many things, they did say that many of the question marks left by the final episode of last season would be settled in episode 1 of the new season.
In addition, the show is about to go ghostbusting, with Chuck Lorre revealing that there’s been »

7 Minutes, 2014.
Written and Directed by Jay Martin.
Three high school friends are forced to commit a brazen robbery which quickly goes horribly wrong.
Ok, get in the bank, take the money and be out of there in 7 minutes. No one gets hurt and only the bank loses the money. Simple?
Well, it wouldn’t be much of a movie if it were that easy. And in this new heist drama it certainly isn’t.
Following three high school friends as they attempt to cover the losses of a mistakenly flushed drug supply, the film takes an intriguingly circuitous route around the narrative, dropping back through the last 3 years examining just how the band became so desperate.
Sam (Luke Mitchell) appears to have it all made at the start of the story, »

When they decide to rob a local business under the threat of retaliation from their spurned dealer, their plan goes horribly wrong.
A Us release is planned for 7 Minutes on June 26.
There has been no announced release date for the film in the UK yet. »
I don’t know about you fright fanatics, but I’m a massive fan of heist films. Dog Day Afternoon, Heat, and every other great entry into what can easily be one of the best intense genres around if done right. One film that seems to be a good contender into that kind of movie is Jay Martin’s 7 Minutes (hitting Theaters, VOD & iTunes June 26) . Having cut his teeth being the storyboard artist on films like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Amazing Spiderman, I Am Legend, and Constantine, Martin made the transition to director,when helmed music videos for everyone from Cold War Kids and Deathcab For Cutie, to legendary rapper Nas.
It’s pretty obvious that Jay knows what he wants in front of the camera and how to get it and the heist film led by Luke Mitchell (TV’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L. »

"This is our way out, it's perfect." Starz Digital has unveiled a trailer for Jay Martin's 7 Minutes, a modern day intense heist movie about three friends forced to commit a brazen robbery, but end up in a "game of life-or-death". There's some interesting twists and turns that they hint at in the trailer; I'm curious who that guy is that pops up at the end with the shotgun. The cast includes Luke Mitchell, Leven Rambin, Jason Ritter, Kris Kristofferson, Joel Murray, Kevin Gage and Zane Holtz. The film is the feature debut of music video director Jay Martin, who also worked as a storyboard artist on a number of major features (I Am Legend, Catching Fire). It looks like it might be engaging, with some solid action throughout. Fire it up. Here's the official trailer + poster for Jay Martin's 7 Minutes, also in high def from Apple: Plot synopsis: »
