The countryside community of Elwood has a problem, and a group of specially trained young adults are about the only ones equipped to take care of it. The problem lies with the living dead that shamble within the town’s boundaries now and then, threatening a dwindling number of uninfected humans in Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard, which Anchor Bay Entertainment is releasing on home media this winter.
Co-starring Billy Zane and Dee Wallace, Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 3rd with a trio of behind-the-scenes featurettes. We have the official press release with full details:
“Beverly Hills, CA – The rural town of Elwood has always been a “bubble” against the backdrop of an organism-based epidemic where infected humans don’t die, instead they roam to spread the infection in a grisly, horrific way. Those who escape must survive—by any means necessary. »

With WolfCop out now on disc, Ryan takes a look at how werewolf myths have faded in and out of cinema history...
It might seem strange, from our interconnected, know-it-all 21st century perspective, that people really did once believe that werewolves existed. Legends of wolf-men date back to antiquity, but really began to bite into society’s fear centres in Europe of the Middle Ages.
Take, for example, Peter Stumpp, a 16th century man whose strange story was related in a pamphlet published shortly after his death. A resident of a small town in Cologne, Stumpp claimed to have been given a belt of wolf skin by the Devil, which when worn, gave him the ability to transform into a wolf. In this form, Stumpp said he’d killed and eaten a dozen or so people over the course of 25 years - crimes described in grisly detail in that old pamphlet. »
The people who brought to life memorable horror movie characters like Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees, Child’s Play’s Chucky, The Howling’s Karen White, Dawn of the Dead’s Blades, and many more are gathering in Massachusetts with a heavy metal backdrop this October. Celebrating scares and guitar shredding, the lineup for the 11th Annual Rock and Shock horror convention has been unveiled.

The latest haunted house horror to burst onto the big screen is 2 Bedroom 1 Bath (review), named so for the typical, banal listing description of an apartment.
It tells the story of Rachel (Michelle Hicks) and Kevin Foster (Andrew W. Walker), a couple who have finally found the ideal home where they can build a future and raise their children. They are hoping it’s a fresh start for their troubled marriage, but as they begin to settle into their new digs, their plans are interrupted by strange occurrences.
As it so happens, director Stanley Yung was inspired by true events when he embarked on this, his first foray into full-on horror. We got a chance to catch up with him at the special event premiere screening of the film, and here’s what he had to say about making a scary movie.

I will be honest with all of you; I am not a huge fan of ‘The Howling’. I know, I know. One of the most revered werewolf films ever made with a huge base of fans and critics alike. By all accounts I should be among them, but there is just something about it I do not gel with. It’s not a badly made film and it boasts some really incredible visual effects (you don’t see a natural lady garden in this day and age, either) and Dee Wallace was very likeable in the lead role, but as a whole, I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe it wasn’t precisely to my tastes, »

Let me tell ya, creeps, nothin’ gets the ol’ Xiii’s motor hummin’ quite like a fright flick that is more akin to a fever dream than one of yer more pedestrian linear narratives. And for my money (roughly equivalent to $1.32 Us cash and a third party, out of state, presumably bad check for $16.45), no one does it better than Director Dante Tomaselli! So, before we begin our regularly scheduled revoltin’ reviews (this week featuring Varsity Blood, Jersey Shore Massacre and The Possession Of Michael King) and other assorted jackanappery, let’s check in with ol’ Dante to see what bats stir in his belfry of the damned!

A new trailer and one-sheet have arrived to celebrate the impending theatrical release of Al Bravo Studios and Chemical Mind Studios' new thriller '2 Bedroom 1 Bath'. We must stress that this is in no way connected to the Lionsgate's thriller '2 Br/1 Ba' which stars Alexa Vega ('Machete Kills') and Kathryn Morris even though both titles are concerningly similar. The psychological thriller from writer/director Stanley Yung focuses on a couple whose new 'dream home' isn't quite what they were expecting, particularly highlighted on the new poster by the statment 'Evil Lives Here.' Here's betting that wasn't mentioned on the original listing. The flick stars Michelle Hicks, Andrew W. Walker, Eric Roberts, Costas Mandylor and Dee Wallace. Check out the goods below. »

Back in April, we reported that filmmaker Zak Penn helped lead an expedition to the New Mexico desert to unearth hundreds of unsold E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial video game cartridges that were buried decades ago in a landfill. That journey is chronicled in the first trailer for the upcoming documentary Atari: Game Over.
Zak Penn directs this film that explores the meteoric rise of video game pioneer Atari, and their colossal failure that was the E.T. video game, which was rushed into production to be available for purchase by Christmas time, after spending a massive $21 million for the rights. The game is widely considered to be the worst of all time, selling just 1.5 million copies, leading to the urban legend that Atari literally buried 14 dump trucks of E.T. cartridges in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill in 1983, the remains of which were dug up just a few months ago.

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of those reality ghost hunting shows. I find them extremely entertaining for some reason. Well, writer and director Andrew P. Jones took the basic concept of those shows and turned it into a movie, but with everything a little over-exaggerated. The movie is called Haunting of Cellblock 11. It may not look like the best movie to some of you, but sometimes I enjoy watching a ridiculous B horror movie. Here's a detailed synopsis:
In Haunting of Cellblock 11, a television ghost hunting show called "Ghost Sightings" is having trouble capturing compelling paranormal activity and faces possible cancellation by the TV network. As luck would have it, they are approached by an elderly man who is being tormented by entities and needs the team's help to rid him of his unrelenting demons. In a last ditch effort to capture apparitional evidence, »
