FrightFest 2015: 'Deathgasm' review

1 hour ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ What We Do in the Shadows (2014), Housebound (2014) and now Deathgasm (2015): New Zealand is fast becoming the go-to place for crowd-pleasing horror comedies. Jason Lei Howden's directorial debut is primed for unalloyed genre thrills, making you laugh until your sides hurt and subverting the rom-zom-com format. If fears going in hinged on the suspicion that Deathgasm was an attention-grabbing title and nothing much else, worries dissipate soon enough, as a laugh-out-loud banquet of blood, made in the spirit of Evil Dead II (1988) and Peter Jackson's Braindead (1992), plays out on the screen. Brodie (Milo Cawthorne) is a heavy metal fan spinning the black circle for Satan.

At least, that's what his God-bothering aunt and uncle think. As with many kids who find solace in extreme music and subcultures, it's got nothing to do with religion or devil-worshipping. Brodie's only friends in the world (apart from his beloved record collection) are two RPG nerdlingers, »

Night Of The Living Deb review [Frightfest 2015]: “Perfect blend of heart and ‘brains'”

16 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Night Of The Living Deb review: Avoids becoming a poor man’s Shaun Of The Dead, instead proving to be the perfect blend of heart and ‘brains.’ Night Of The Living Deb review

Director: Kyle Rankin

Cast: Maria Thayer, Michael Cassidy, Ray WiseChris Marquette

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 85 minutes

Synopsis: Following a drunken one-night-stand, mismatched strangers Deb and Ryan awaken to find their small town is in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

As if the so-called ‘Walk Of Shame’ wasn’t harrowing enough for most people, Kyle Rankin (Infestation) has added flesh-eating zombies into the mix in his latest film Night Of The Living Deb.

Best described as a romantic zombie comedy, Night Of The Living Deb follows the trials and tribulations of Deb (Maria Thayer), a geeky, somewhat awkward girl who – following a drunken night out – has awoken in the apartment of ‘pretty boy’ Ryan (Michael Cassidy), with »

Exclusive: Interview with Kyle Rankin for Night of the Living Deb [Frightfest 2015]

19 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Interview with Kyle Rankin

Taking the horror of the ‘Walk Of Shame’ to a whole new level, Night Of The Living Deb sees awkward girl Deb stumbling into a zombie outbreak after a drunken fling, forcing her to pair up with the guy she spent the night with.

A genuinely funny ‘rom-zom-com’ with the right balance of warmth, wit and walking dead, Night Of The Living Deb debuts at this year’s Frightfest and we spoke to the film’s writer-director Kyle Rankin about his movie.

Night Of The Living Deb is a great original concept, how did you come with the idea?  

A lot of zombie movies focus on the unlikely — and uneasy — band of characters who are forced to work together to survive.  I thought, what if the one person you had on your team was someone you drunkenly hooked up with the night before?  Only now they »

Frightfest 2015: ‘Night of the Living Deb’ Review

26 August 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Maria Thayer, Michael Cassidy, Ray Wise, Chris Marquette, Julie BristerSyd Wilder, Brian Sacca, Grant Garry, Ned Donovan | Written by Kyle Rankin, Andy Selsor | Directed by Kyle Rankin

There are some films that, upon viewing, you just can’t help but fall in love with (and Night of the Living Deb is not the only film at this years Frightfest to hit me in my horror-loving heart). Back in 2009, at my very first Frightfest as a reviewer – covering the festival for Bloody Disgusting – there was one such film… Infestation. A parody of nature run amok movies like The Swarm, Phase IV and Them!, Infestation was a near-perfect comedic take on the killer-insect genre (even though those original creature-features are funny enough as they are) with stellar performances from Chris Marquette and Ray Wise. Well that was 6 years ago. a long six years. Since then director Kyle Rankin has been »

Frightfest 2015: ‘Hangman’ Review

24 August 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jeremy SistoKate AshfieldRyan Simpkins, Ty Simpkins, Eric Michael Cole | Written by Adam Mason, Simon Boyes | Directed by Adam Mason

I can’t imagine what it must feel like to return home after a family holiday, only to find your house as well as your belongings trashed by an intruder. That’s exactly what happens to Aaron (Jeremy Sisto, Wrong Turn) and Beth (Kate Ashfield, Shaun of the Dead) Miller in Adam Mason’s (Broken) latest thriller, Hangman.

However, unlike most cases, this isn’t the work of a vagrant or thief, this is something much more sinister. You see, the person who broke in to the Miller family home, never left and with the help of cameras set up around the house, he can monitor their every move and eavesdrop on every conversation. What starts as minor interaction such as helping himself to food and the families own toiletries, »

The Red Band Trailer for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

Three scouts fight to survive and save their town in the upcoming horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Think Superbad meets Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland. Also zombie cats! Ah yes, this is a special kind of stupid, but like the sort of stupid I could see myself enjoying. If the combination of films I […]

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Gets A Red Band Trailer

21 August 2015 3:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount

The last ten years have seen the zom-com sub-genre explode. The list of titles stretches out endlessly, including fan favourites Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland all the way to lesser seen fare like 2007’s Fido and last year’s Life After Beth.

It doesn’t seem the trend intends to die either, with the arrival of a new red band trailer for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse now on the rampage.

Check it out below.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse sees a bunch of under-appreciated, geeky scout types having to defend their town from a sudden zombie epidemic. The title pretty much doubles as a plot synopsis by the look of things.

I can get behind the general concept here, but the trailer doesn’t fill me with anticipation. With an R-rating, some nastiness is expected, but this has a slightly unpleasant vibe. There’s a leery, »

Red Band Trailer For Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse

20 August 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Horror comedy Scout’s Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse had a relatively small presence at Comic-Con this year, but is ramping things up ahead of its release in a couple of months. The first UK trailer – a Red Band effort full of blood, bullets, swearing and nudity – is now online. The movie – which seems to want to bottle a similar blend of silly and terrifying brought to the screen so magnificently by Shaun Of The Dead – finds three scouts, lifelong friends, who are trying to attend the party marked as the social event of the year. But instead of having fun, they must team up with a tough cocktail waitress to try and save their town from a zombie invasion. Can these unlikely heroes make it through the undead apocalypse? They’ll need all their scouting skills, but we’re sure success would lead to the best badge ever created. »

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Red Band Trailer

20 August 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We’ve seen very little of Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, save for a handful of clips, so far, but that all changes with the first, very Nsfw trailer for the the high concept horror comedy, courtesy of Michinima. While it may be a lot cruder than the likes of Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, this does promise to be a lot of fun, with director Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) playing the well worn zombie apocalypse premise for the maximum amount of laughs. And also kudos to those who catch the blink and you’ll miss it reference to The Thing. Released: 30th October (U.S.)/6th November (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one bad-ass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, »

From Romero to 'Walking Dead': A Brief History of Zombies in Pop Culture

19 August 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Think of a teeming metropolis like New York City. Now double that in size. If every single person who lived there, every hot-dog vendor, third-grader and euphoric Mets fan, was in fact a flesh-eating zombie, that would roughly equal the 17.3 million people that tuned into last October's fifth-season premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead, the most-watched episode of anything in cable history. Those are blockbuster numbers and they occurred week after week. The demand for the show has become so huge that a prequel spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, debuts this Sunday. »

'Star Wars 7' Got More Than a Cameo from Simon Pegg

14 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many were disappointed when it was confirmed that director J.J. Abrams wasn't showing any footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Comic-Con last month. Those same fans were likely delighted, though, by the behind-the-scenes video that debuted during the panel, which confirmed, among other things, that Simon Pegg does have an on-screen role. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, J.J. Abrams wouldn't say exactly what the actor's role is, but he did confirm that Simon Pegg was part of his behind-the-scenes team that helped him hash out the story.

"I will say this in terms of Simon: while he won't be recognizable in the movie, in all honesty, his role in this - not the performance or the character - but his support and friendship has been massively important and helpful in the process. He was a wonderful partner in crime to kick the story around and »

Dawna Lee Heising interviews Vida Ghaffari about Garden Party Massacre and more

13 August 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by MoreHorror.com

Horror meets hilarity in award-winning Gregory Blair’s new film Garden Party Massacre and cast members Dawna Lee Heising and Vida Ghaffari reveal a little bit about the project and their characters in this interview filmed at the City Beat Live mixer August 1st, 2015.

Garden Party Massacre tells the riotous tale of a friendly backyard gathering that goes hilariously awry when an unexpected guest arrives. With a pickaxe. And an attitude. Vida Ghaffari plays Reena, the sassy fashionista Reena and Dawna plays Melanie—“the Milf from hell”.

Garden Party Massacre is a fast-paced, wacky romp in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and both ladies get their share of the fun.

The cast also includes other familiar names in comedy and horror as well as some fresh faces: Andy Gates (“Grimm”, “The Young and the Restless”, etc.), Nichole Bagby (“My Crazy Roommate »

Movie Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

30 July 2015 9:25 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

If you’ve seen any of the marketing for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, you’ve almost certainly seen the image of Tom Cruise gripping the side of a jet plane as it takes off. The outrageous stunt is real, and the laws of modern movie marketing would seem to dictate that this could well be the money shot for the whole movie. So there’s a certain refreshing pleasure in sitting down to watch the film and finding that the plane stunt happens right in the opening sequence. If the trailer’s big wowza moment is just table setting, what could the filmmakers have in store for the final showdown? The answer, as it turns out, is plenty, but also not quite enough. This Mission: Impossible is a remarkably fun and clever continuation of the franchise, but also occasionally frustrating in the way it fails to live up to its own standards. »

Ant-Man King of the Box Office Insects with $58 Million Haul

19 July 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Disney and Marvel’s Ant-Man scored the number one spot at the North American box office this weekend. The latest Marvel superhero to make the leap to movie screens beat out fellow newcomer Trainwreck, which scored a solid opening in third. The strong bows for Ant-Man and Trainwreck helped boost the top ten 38% over last year at this time when Dawn of the Planet of the Apes led with $36.2 million.

It’s been a long journey to bring Ant-Man to the big screen. The project began its life with Marvel Studios back in 2006 when it was announced that Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright was set to direct and co-write the screenplay with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). Script revisions and other roadblocks delayed Ant-Man from going before the cameras until mid 2014. By that time, Peyton Reed had replaced Wright as director, actor Patrick Wilson bowed out of a »

Ant-man – Another Take

18 July 2015 6:28 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Face front” all you Marvel-maniacs! The movie universe is expanding by actually getting…smaller. When we last visited the studio mega-franchise, just about ten weeks ago, metallic maniac Ultron ( a really major fail from Stark Industries) was out to destroy humanity until the Avengers (lead by the big heavy-hitters like Thor and the Hulk) pulled the plug on his plans. And story lines were in place for a new cosmic menace. But this new entry is not set way, way up there like last Summer’s surprise smash Guardians Of The Galaxy. Our new hero is more down to Earth (many times he’s a fraction of an inch from Earth). Non-comics fans may be surprised that he’s actually one of the earliest Marvel characters, almost pre-dating the age of heroes by his introduction in the Sf suspense story titled “The Man in the Ant Hill” from the anthology »
