David DeCoteau’s ‘Creepozoids’ finally comes to Blu-ray

7 April 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

From legendary cult filmmaker David DeCoteau (Puppet Master III, Sorority Babes in the Slime Ball Bowl-o-Rama) and producer Charles Band (Re-Animator) comes one the most beloved B-horror/fantasy films of the 1980s (at least for me)… Creepozoids – which finally comes to Blu-ray from Full Moon Features.

Blending key elements of genre hits Mad Max and Alien (while also incorporating elements of Band’s Parasite and Metalstorm) but produced on a tenth of their budgets, Creepozoids tells the tale of five Army deserters who wander the post-apocalyptic, post-industrial La landscape seeking shelter from an increasingly toxic environment and poisonous rain. They end up in an abandoned laboratory where they explore, have sex and eventually run afoul of a cavalcade of genetically engineered creatures including mutant rats, a monstrous baby, a massive, bloodthirsty H.R. Giger-esque beast…and something even more malevolent.

Dead And Buried Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

19 March 2017 8:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You can try to kill me, Dan. But you can’t. You can only make me dead. ”

Dead And Buried screens Midnights this weekend (March 24th and 25th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of  Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

1981 was a stellar year for horror films! Just ask Andy Triefenbach, who programs at Late Night Grindhouse midnight series. The Evil Dead, The Burning, My Bloody Valentine, The Beyond, House By The Cemetary, and Nightmare have all played midnights at the Late Night Grindhouse monthly film series in recent years and they all celebrate their 36th anniversary in 2017. Dead And Buried, co-written by St. Louis native Dan O’Bannon (two years after he co-wrote Alien and 3 years before he wrote and directed Return Of The Living Dead – another Lngh fave) may not be as well-known as those shockers, »

Train To Busan: A Zombie Spotter’s Guide

28 February 2017 11:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The annals of horror history are infested with the living dead. And most movie fans would conjure up the same mental picture of a zombie: slow, groaning, hungry for human brains.

But like anything else – living or, erm, living dead – the zombie comes in many forms. It’s evolved and changed, taking on new traits and characteristics with each new generation of seminal zombie movies.

With Train to Busan released on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD this week, we’ve put together an essential guide for anyone who enjoys a bit of “zombie spotting”, detailing the most common – and rarest – types of undead brain-munchers out there.

“The Voodoo Classic”

As Seen In: White Zombie (1932)

Defining Characteristics: With their cloaks, big moustaches, and pirate-style baggy pants, they look more like extras from a Gilbert & Sullivan production than your standard reanimated corpse.

Natural Habitat: Haiti, where they exist under the control of »

To Horror, with Love: Cinema’s Biggest Genre Fans – The Frog Brothers from The Lost Boys (1987)

11 February 2017 9:59 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Hello, readers! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we here at Daily Dead thought it would be fun to do things a little different this year. We're putting the spotlight on our favorite horror-loving characters from genre cinema, people who have represented our own fandom on screen and, in many cases, helped bring our passion for horror into the mainstream. Be sure to check back here on Daily Dead every day through Valentine's Day for our tributes to some of the greatest horror fans to ever grace the big screen.]

“Kill your brother. You’ll feel better.” Such is the self-assured advice of Mr. Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander), one-half of the Frog Brothers, the Santa Carla vampire-killing duo from Joel Schumacher’s 1987 glampire flick, The Lost Boys. He is addressing Sam (Corey Haim), the new kid in town who has noticed his brother Michael (Jason Patric) suffering some very strange symptoms, including staying up late at night, showing a translucent reflection, and having the ability to uncontrollably float past Sam’s room.

Equipped with little more than two fingers slapped together in a makeshift crucifix, Sam is clearly in over his head. Thankfully, the Frog Brothers are more than happy to impart on Sam their collective wisdom on vampires, which you might also know as night crawlers, bloodsuckers, or even el vampiro. Their overzealous need to share this knowledge would be right at home in a horror convention, because at their core, »

Derek’s Favorites of 2016

6 January 2017 5:43 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lurking within pages, displayed on the big and small screens, and at home on the airwaves, the horror genre thrived last year. 2016 was packed with great genre offerings, and although it's difficult to filter through the creepy contents of such a banner year for the genre, I forced myself to choose the moments that stuck with me the most... and still haunt my nightmares.

Green Room: Never did violence feel more real onscreen to me this year than the scenes in Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room. The third feature film from the Blue Ruin and Murder Party director is ripe with palpable frights in its depiction of a vicious battle between a punk band and neo-Nazis led by Patrick Stewart’s calculating Darcy. You can practically feel your sweaty palms wrapping around a broken fluorescent tube as the Ain’t Rights prepare for their most important performance yet as »

Jonathan’s Favorites of 2016

2 January 2017 1:41 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're back with our annual list of favorites here on Daily Dead. For those that are new to Daily Dead, we handle our year-end lists differently here. Rather than just covering films, our lists can extend to TV, games, collectibles, events, and anything else genre-related. In short, we’re sharing with you a list of our favorite horror experiences from 2016.

Check back every day this week to find out what made the cut for the rest of the Daily Dead team.

Train to Busan: I predict that we’ll look back at 2016 as the year when zombie-mania started its decline from the insane levels we saw when The Walking Dead regularly smashed its own ratings records and World War Z was a surprise box office success. With that said, don’t let zombie fatigue keep you from boarding the Train to Busan.
