'Hangover 3', 'Laurence Anyways', 'Purge', 'Chucky' and 'After Earth' On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

Laurence Anyways I do have a copy of this one and it's a film that just might make my top ten this year. I saw it at the Cannes Film Festival last year and it served as my introduction to writer/director Xavier Dolan and having now seen all four of his feature films I'd definitely say this is his best. I really hope more people find the opportunity to see not only this film, but everything else he has to offer.

Stalag 17 I can't remember when I watched Billy Wilder's Stalag 17, but I enjoyed it very much and would love to return to this black comedy meets action film centered in a WWII Pow camp. Starring the likes of William Holden and Otto Preminger, this flick won Holden the Best Actor Oscar in 1954 and is one I would recommend you check out. I don't have any details on this Blu-ray,

Fantasia Film Festival Review: Unflinching & Impressive 'Metro Manila'

If you're not into niche genre stuff like indie slasher films, Asian action flicks and ridiculously over-the-top monster movies then it's likely that you haven't even heard of the Fantasia Film Festival. For close to three full weeks this international festival descends upon the city of Montreal like a tidal wave of cinematic weirdness. The titles alone speak a thousand words: "Big Ass Spider!," "Zombie Hunter," "Curse of Chucky," "Drug War" etc. So when a movie like Sean Ellis' "Metro Manila" parachutes its way into the program, it almost feels like taking the first breaths of oxygen after a plastic bag's been lifted. Maybe it's the festival widening its range to include the sub-genres of drama, or it could be that they've succumbed to the temptation of premiering the 2013 Sundance Audience Award winner in Canada. Whatever the reason is, bless them for it."Metro Manila" zeros in on an impoverished couple,

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters trailer – so kitsch it's frightening

It's hard to see the wood for the trees in this fairytale starring a Bond girl, an Avenger and a witch who looks like Paul Daniels

Reading on a mobile? Click here to watch

2012 might have slunk away ungraciously, but that doesn't mean that its presence can't still be felt. This is especially true when it comes to one of last year's least appealing movie trends – the gradual Asylumification of mainstream cinema. You know the sort of thing; tiresomely schlocky zero-expectation genre flicks that are made on the cheap and exist solely to trade on a kitschy title. Strippers v Werewolves. Cockneys v Zombies. Abraham Lincoln: Zombie Hunter. Fine if you stumble upon them on TV when you're drunk at 2am; less so if you're paying in full for a cinema ticket.

But with a new year comes new expectations. Perhaps, despite all signs to the contrary, Hansel and Gretel

Canadian Zombie Fans - Your Presence is Requested at the A Little Bit Zombie Screenings

We're not going to make the cliché Canadian joke here. No Mackenzie Brothers reference or hosers or eh? We're not even going to ask if you're elbow deep in Tim Horton's donuts. We've just got a request from filmmaker Casey Walker ... go see A Little Bit Zombie.

Judging by the hilarious trailer for the film, which was produced and directed by Walker, A Little Bit Zombie might be this year's Tucker and Dale Versus Evil or The Cottage. This looks like a horror-comedy that nails it. It even has a Dead Alive feel to it. We get nothing but good vibes from what we've seen so far.

After selling out loads of festival screenings A Little Bit Zombie is making its theatrical debut May 17 on 20 screens across Canada. A wider release through Landmark Cinemas is promised if the film initially performs well. And that's where you can help. If you're

Interview with Plague Town Author Dana Fredsti

Dana Fredsti is a writer and an actress with a background in theatrical sword-fighting. She has appeared in Army of Darkness and her love of zombies has resulted in Plague Town, a zombie novel that was released earlier this month. We recently had a chance to ask her some questions, and learned more about the inspiration for the novel, working on Army of Darkness, and who she’d want on her zombie survival team.

Dana and Titan Books are also giving readers a chance to participate in the Plague Town Pandemic Tour, where the winner will receive a signed copy of the book and will have a character named after them in the next novel in the series:

New Poster for A Little Bit Zombie

  • DailyDead
We’ve got the new poster for A Little Bit Zombie, the upcoming zombie comedy from Casey Walker. The poster was designed from Tom Hodge, who you should know from his poster designs for Hobo With a Shotgun and The Innkeepers.

Tom Hodge had the following to say about the new poster: “This was the first time i got to really swing my design bat at comedy. After discussing some ideas with Casey, we both seemed to be coming from the same direction – we really wanted the poster to be every bit as visually entertaining as the film is funny, by creating something that was epic, totally Ott for the subject matter.

So this poster design really came to be a love letter to the whole fantasy art school of the 70′s and such great artists who inspired me growing up, like Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo and John Bolton.

Full Trailer for a Little Bit Zombie Goes a Long Way

Getting married is tough. Getting married after you’ve been bitten by a zombie mosquito is tougher. Yes, I said it. A zombie mosquito. Or a mosquito that has been zombie-fied. Or something like that. What am I, a mosquito zombie expert? Anyways, check out the full trailer for Casey Walker’s “A Little Bit Zombie” (Todd posted a teaser for it last year), a horror-comedy that actually looks funny. Not so sure about the zombie portion of the film, though, since most of that is played for laughs. The downside of being a zombie? Well, it’s that whole decaying and potentially eating your fiancee’s delicious brains part. The upside? Getting hit in the gonads by car doors no longer hurt. Much. Infected by a virus during his bachelor party, a mild mannered Hr manager attempts to fulfill his overwhelming desire for brains and avoid Max, the obsessed
