Trilogy of Blood Review

by Colleen Wanglund, MoreHorror.com

Three chicks pick up a hillbilly hitch hiker who invites them to a down-home barbeque. They reluctantly accept but get way more than they bargained for. This ain’t your usual dogs and burgers with slaw on the side.

Trilogy Of Blood (2010) is a twenty-seven minute horror short, as well as a music video for psychobilly punk band the Deadneks. Boobs, blood and music….what more could you ask for? Well, being a girl I don’t much care if there are boobs or not, but the blood and music drew me in.

Trilogy Of Blood is a gritty, gory tribute to Herschell Gordon Lewis. I was almost immediately reminded of 2000 Maniacs with its backwoods hillbillies and grindhouse feel. It’s cheesy but a lot of fun. And the music is great.

This no-budget horror/black comedy short stars the above-mentioned band the Deadneks and

A Story So Scary They Told it Twice: What We Know About Upcoming Horror Remakes

Chicago – The total number of horrendous, stupid, useless horror movie remakes could fill a film festival from Hell, but this year we’ve already seen the massively successful “Friday the 13th” and the critically lauded surprises of “My Bloody Valentine 3D” and “Last House on the Left”. Maybe there’s actually life in this horror remake trend after all and it’s not just the walking undead.

So, what’s the next “My Bloody Valentine”? Where will the next “Friday the 13th” come from? We’ve highlighted six horror movie remakes in current stages of production - from mere rumor to shooting to practically already at a theater near you - with the details about what we know so far, who’s in it, and our gut feeling on if it’s going to be a successful reboot or merely a reason to go back and rent the original.

"The Birds" Remake Just Might Be 3D

MarketSaw recently had an opportunity to chat with actress Brenna Lee Roth and managed to get a particularly interesting bit of information. The upcoming remake of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" is not only moving forward; it might just even be in 3D! Roth dropped this comment while mentioning she had been in talks with producers about perhaps working on the film and revealed that the producer involved had all three dimensions in mind for the project. The technology of 3D has become extremely powerful, and if approached correctly, this just might be an awesome decision. A film such as "The Birds" would be such an easy remake to screw up; however, as long as the redux doesn't have any other major shortcomings, such as unnecessary Hollywood twists duck-taped into the script, doing the...

Michael Bay's Birds Remake May Be In 3D

We've been complaining for a while about Michael Bay's plan to produce a remake of The Birds, even if it's starring the generally likable George Clooney and Naomi Watts. But now there's an added element that might make the whole thing even more tasteless-- the movie might be made in 3D. Brenna Lee Roth, a minor actress who's in talks for a role in the film, let the news slip to MarketSaw, a blog specifically dedicated to 3D movies. Roth told them, "I am in talks with the producer of The Birds (remake) and he said he wanted to do it 3D, but I don't really know any more about it." To be fair, Hitchcock himself was more than willing to experiment with new movie technologies and/or gimmicks-- Dial M for Murder was originally filmed in 3D. But it's hard to separate the 3D concept from films that
