What do you think of immediately when you think "exploding head"? Scanners, yes? Well, that film and many more are represented in a newly discovered "exploding head video montage" that culls many of our favorite scenes involving cranial damage.
From The Running Man to Chopping Mall, From Dusk Till Dawn to Dawn of the Dead, this is one video you may want to watch after setting aside your breakfast this morning. Kudos to the editing team for this wet, gruesome and loving display of carnage.

You probably all know from reading my reviews here on Blogomatic3000 that I love a good B-movie. Now that may be a huge blockbusting B-movie like Transformers or a straight to DVD, unseen by many B-movie like the recent flick Monster Mutt, but they’re all B-movies nonetheless. One of my all-time favourite B-movie maestros is the legendary Roger Corman, I grew up watching many of his straight to DVD produced sci-fi and horror movies in the 80s and those films – such as Galaxy of Terror, Deathstalker, Forbidden World, The Terror Within and Humanoids From the Deep to name a few – are still cherished favourites today. In fact one of my all-time Top 20 favourite movies, Battle Beyond the Stars, came from Corman. He was also responsible for producing the awesome Bloodfist series of martial arts movies which starred Don “The Dragon” Wilson – another fave of mine!

The ethos of new company No CGI Films is something I can really get behind. Not that I don't like computer generated images, or digital FX or anything. I just get a total nerdgasm from seeing amazing practical work on the screen - particularly when it's pushed to a point that the movie starts to look like a bizarro version of earth (Evil Dead gets there for example).
So if you're like me and you dig on old Corman creature features (warts and all), you'll be happy to know that there are enough cool, geeky old-school filmmaker tricks in Millennium Bug to make you drool. We're talking insane miniature work, a ton of forced perspective and buckets of liquid blood to go along with all the prosthetic make-up work. For their first big (read: small) release, »
Everyone knows that in horror sequels are inevitable. When you hit the right chord and people dig it, it only makes sense. Determined to prove that the sequel can be as good the original, Days of the Dead has announced not one but two shows next year.
Based on the success of Days of the Dead in Indianapolis, they will be taking all of their shows and events to Atlanta, Georgia, March 9-11, 2012. But don't worry, they will be bringing the madness back to Indianapolis July 6-8, 2012.
Days of the Dead: Atlanta has already announced some of their guests including: Pj Soles (Halloween, Carrie, Stripes, Rock N' Roll High School), Dey Young (Rock N' Roll High School, Running Man, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Red Eye)- This will be the first Rock N' Roll High School reunion in 30 years, Gary Busey (Silver Bullet, Predator 2, Pirahna 3Dd), Taafe O' Connell (Galaxy of Terror, »
Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And in the case of Roger Corman and his New World Pictures, they have made some of the biggest names in the film world quite flattered, that is, if this is indeed true.
The king of the cinematic “sample,” Corman has ripped off, or at least borrowed from, countless films. However, none of his pictures sums this up quite as well as the Jimmy T. Murakami picture, Battle Beyond The Stars. Not only drawing inspiration from the sci-fi juggernaut that is Star Wars, but also Akira Kurosawa’s classic masterpiece The Seven Samurai, and while it may not live up to this pedigree, it is quite the entertaining piece of cinema.
Plot wise, the film sounds like a futuristic Kurosawa film right from the beginning. A farm colony is under attack from an evil conqueror, and one of their citizens attempts »

[Editor's note: Shout! Factory are offering 50% off all Corman Blu-rays if you pick up all seven as a bundle. Pretty sweet deal.]
I think the late 70s and into the 80s is my favourite Roger Corman era. Many people disagrees with me on that, of course. His 60s output is awesome (particularly if you're an exploitation nut), but if you're a straight genre fan and dig on cult scifi, horror or creatures features it really doesn't get any better than this period.
The reason for this era of great output is because of three films: Jaws, Alien and Star Wars. When these films came out, Corman realized the studios had started making His kind of movie and were making them bigger and better. This forced Corman to sink more money and talent into the genre films he was producing and in some of »
For many fans, independent horror filmmaking seems like a relatively new concept. So you may be surprised to find out the maverick spirit that fuels our beloved genre has been burning for almost 100 years now, since the 1912 version of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde was produced by the independently-run production house Thanhouser Company.
Since then, we’ve enjoyed countless films that bucked the studio system tradition and gave us bold, refreshing explorations of some of our greatest fears and introduced us to some pioneers in the entertainment industry. In honor of these achievements, we here at Dread Central are taking the entire month of March to celebrate all things indie horror.
To kick things off, over the next five days we’d like to take you on a historical journey through the last 100 years of indie horror by taking a look at 25 milestones that helped define the horror genre and, in many cases, »
