‘The Walking Deceased’ DVD Review

19 July 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tim Ogletree, Joey Oglesby, Dave Sheridan, Troy Ogletree, Sophia Taylor Ali, Jacqui Holland, Mason Dakota Galyon | Written by Tim Ogletree | Directed by Scott Dow

The Walking Deceased follows a group of survivors from all walks of the apocalypse – an idiotic Sheriff with definite coma-induced brain damage, his hardass son, four squabbling friends forced to survive this zombieland together, and a lonely zombie who just needs love to fully regain his warm body. They all leave their once-safe hideout in search of the rumored Safe Haven Ranch, a refuge untouched by the zombie virus that has ravaged humanity. But despite the comforting name, they discover that this sanctuary may not be as welcoming as advertised.

Ok, so if you haven’t gathered by the title or by that synopsis, The Walking Deceased is a spoof of the zombie genre – more particularly of the fantastic Zombieland, AMC’s The Walking Dead »

DVD Review – The Walking Deceased (2015)

13 July 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Walking Deceased, 2015.

Directed by Scott Dow.

Starring Tim Ogletree, Joey Oglesby, Dave Sheridan, Troy Ogletree, Sophia Taylor Ali, Jacqui Holland and Mason Dakota Galyon.


A police officer wakes from a coma to discover that the zombie apocalypse has changed the world as he knew it. Sounds familiar…

You generally know that an idea has peaked when the spoofs and parodies start appearing; the problem with the zombie genre is that arguably the first comedic take appeared 30 years ago with Return of the Living Dead and has shown little sign of letting up, especially now anybody with a computer and a graphics programme can seemingly knock something vaguely passable together to keep Asda customers happy.

Primarily riffing on AMC’s The Walking Dead, The Walking Deceased also takes pot-shots at Zombieland, 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead and the inescapable Dawn of the Dead as it follows Sheriff Lincoln (Dave Sheridan), Chicago (Joey Oglesby, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Nest

11 July 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ah, cockroaches. They just don’t get much love in the Horror genre. One would think that these lowly creatures, clicking and flitting, scurrying and shuttling from dark to light would be prime fodder for terror terrain. However, up until 1988’s The Nest, there are only a handful of critter flicks starring these grotesque end- of- the- worlders. Concorde Pictures (Roger Corman’s latest company at the time) unleashed this gloriously gruesome roach-a-rama on an unsuspecting public and watched them squirm with delight.

Actually, The Nest only received a limited release by Concorde, but made its coin when it was released on video by MGM later that same year. Reviews were generally positive, with critics seeing it as a good natured update of 1950’s monster movies, of course with new, improved and gnarly special effects. The Nest is, shall we say, a great deal moister than its bug strewn brethren of yore. »

Cooties: Oh Look, Carnage, In First Trailer For The Horror Comedy

20 May 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Having been reworked and beefed up after it's debut at Sundance last year, the current cut of the horror comedy Cooties most recently bowed at the Stanley Film Festival. Our Michele Galgana caught the 're-edited with added action at the end' flick at Stanley and had this to say in her's a return to the days of '70s and '80s cinema where there were no rules about who could die or be terribly maimed onscreen. At its most common, Cooties feels a bit like a sitcom, but one that's actually really funny. At its most exhilarating, it feels like a blend of Who Can Kill A Child? and Return of the Living Dead, an excellent blend of fast-paced hilarity and madness. And now there is this...

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

Review: Invaders From Mars

8 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The downfall that faced Tobe Hooper's creative relationship with The Cannon Group in the eighties wasn't much different than the fate of George A. Romero's collaboration with Orion Pictures. After leaving an iconic legacy for horror in the previous decade, Hooper had a reputation to live up to when he made a three picture deal with Golan and Globus that resulted in the ambitious, but entertaining failure Lifeforce, the misunderstood parody The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and the family friendly remake of Invaders From Mars that helped sink Cannon out of Hollywood forever.

When considering the talent involved in this production that included screenwriting duties from Dan O' Bannon and special effects from legends like Stan Winston (who was simultaneously working on James Cameron's Aliens), John Dykstra (Star Wars) and Alec Gillis, this quite frankly should have been an exhilarating fantasy spectacle at the very least.

Bluray Review: Invaders From Mars!!

7 April 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Fans of Tobe Hooper’s 1986 film Invaders From Mars can jump for joy, with Scream Factory’s new Collector’s Edition bluray hitting shelves, and it’s definitely a release to check out. Loaded to the brim with brand new and retro special features, the film does an excellent job of bringing back not only a sense of nostalgia for old school fans of the film, but introduces a fun and campy ride for its new viewers.

Personally, I think the film and its content all speak for themselves, but just in case you have a question or two regarding the release, we’ve got you covered, having taken a look at the release and we can definitely assure you, it’s one of the most entertaining family-horror films of all time.

DVD Review – Doc of the Dead (2015)

30 March 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Doc of the Dead, 2015.

Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe.

Featuring Bruce Campbell, Simon Pegg, George A. Romero, Sid Haig, Tom Savini, Greg Nicotero, Stuart Gordon, Max Brooks, Alex Cox, Robert Kirkman, Steve Barton.


Apparently, this is the definitive documentary examining the rise of the zombie in modern pop culture. Hmm…

Think you know zombies? Of course you do, because no doubt you have seen Shaun of the Dead on one of its weekly showings on some made-for-twentysomethings TV channel or own one of the many DVD releases of Night of the Living Dead that likely includes a documentary or an interview with George A. Romero that covers everything you need to know about that seminal movie and the influence it has had. So what does Doc of the Dead have to offer that several dozen DVD extra features doesn’t? Not a great deal, if truth be told.

10 Zombie Films You Should Die Before You See

28 March 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It was a running joke among Italian exploitation filmmakers in the 70s and 80s that if you wanted to know what your next picture was going to be, you only had to look at Hollywood’s box office. Just as every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so every Hollywood blockbuster has a sleazy and inexpensive mockbuster.

The Exorcist spawned House of Exorcism, Jaws begat Tentacles and Star Wars found its opposite number in Starcrash, but it was Dawn of the Dead’s success that birthed some of the liveliest, most outlandish trash that ever met a projector bulb. Avoiding Dawn’s slapstick elements, these knock-offs played it straight and went for the jugular, but their shoestring budgets, bad acting and ridiculous narratives often saw them enter the realm of high camp, and the zombie genre went into a tailspin.

SXSW 2015 Review: Deathgasm Rocks!

23 March 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Not since the days of video store browsing has there been a horror movie quite as demonically satisfying as Deathgasm. This is simply because they just don't make 'em like they used to. But even when they used to, more often than not, most horror movies on the shelf, despite their incredibly cool VHS cases, would still fall short of the quality Deathgasm has achieved thanks to writer/director Jason Lei Howden's genuine fan boy love for an extinct heyday of gore via Tom Savini practical effects, as best exemplified in films like Return of the Living Dead.Even before seeing Deathgasm, but more than a little awed by its title, the Rock and Roll horror premise evoked memories of trekking to the corner video store and...

Ten truly memorable zombies

15 March 2015 2:20 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Are zombies really that memorable? When you think about it, today’s undead munchers are not exactly an interesting crowd since all they do between meals is wander around in a trance. The pre Romero vegetarians are even worse, as they spend most of their time under the thumb of a zombie master, although on the odd occasion they do rebel against their tyrannical leader.

Zombie movies are a dime a dozen these days, and apart from a few moderately successful variations, they haven’t progressed beyond the flesh-eating antics of Night of the Living Dead (1968). But on the odd occasion a couple of zombies stand out from the faceless crowd of walking corpses, and what some these ghouls lack in personality, they make up for in other ways.

So here’s a list of ten memorable zombies that stood out for me, as an avid horror movie fan.

Horror Round-Up: Easy Brains Oven, XLrator Media’s ‘Macabre’ Film Collection on Hulu, Fox’s Lucifer Pilot Casting Update

11 March 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Easy-Bake Oven gave countless kids a much-needed loophole. Hungry for a snack before dinner, but mom says the cookies are off limits? No problem. Just toss some brownie mix in your miniature pan and cook up a little treat while playing in the other room. So functional is the Easy-Bake Oven that you'd likely find it in the occasional dorm room... at least back in the day. And if zombies really do take over the world in the future, you might see Nerdist's recently revealed faux product, the Easy Brains Oven, become a sought-after item for shambling shoppers. We take a look at the living-dead-themed toy in our latest horror round-up, along with XLrator Media's new "Macabre" collection of films on Hulu and a casting update on Fox's Lucifer pilot.

Scream Factory Sends Tobe Hooper’s Invaders From Mars To Bluray This April!!

28 January 2015 12:18 PM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

You love Scream Factory, I love Scream Factory, we all love Scream Factory. It’s time to love the gang at Sf a little more, with their announcement of Tobe Hooper’s 1986 remake of Invaders From Mars making its Bluray debut, when it hits shelves on April 7th. The last time we saw the Scream Factory treatment of a Hooper film, was the Awesome Bluray release of Lifeforce (the collector’s edition of it has sadly gone semi-out of print now), and Invaders From Mars is yet another underrated gem in the filmography of Hooper, so with the announcement, along with a Brand New retrospective including on the disc, it’s martian time. We all love Leatherface and Co. but hey, let’s get us some aliens!
