British horror fans can beat the current economic woes with “Credit Crunch Cinema,” a series of absolutely free screenings of new indie horror fare in towns across the UK. The program kicks off today with One-eyed Monster, Adam Fields’ sci-fi/horror/comedy in which Ron Jeremy’s member detaches itself and goes on an alien-inspired rampage (see review here).
The Norwegian 1970s-style slasher Manhunt (a.k.a. Rovdyr, pictured below), directed and co-written by Patrik Syversen, follows on May 22. Then on June 5, Credit Crunch Cinema presents Deadgirl in association with heavy rock magazine Kerrang! Scripted by Trent Haaga, Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel’s movie concerns two teenage misfits who discover a naked, chained, (probably) deceased woman in an abandoned hospital.
The screenings will take place at Vue Cinemas in Cambridge, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol and London’s West End, with more fright flicks to be announced. All Credit Crunch Cinema »
One-eyed Monster, just out on DVD from Liberation Entertainment, is a horror/comedy (with an emphasis on the comedy) set in the mountain wilderness of Mammoth Lakes, CA, where a porn shoot is taking place with adult-film legends Ron (“The Hedgehog”) Jeremy and Veronica Hart (playing themselves) plus a group of younger cast and crew. During the filming of one sequence, Jeremy can’t get his johnson to respond, and so he steps outside for some fresh air—where he’s possessed by an alien that appears as a flash of light in the sky.
When the director (Jeff Denton) subsequently asks Jeremy if his tallywhacker is now up to the task, the actor replies in the affirmative. Jumping back into the scene (and onto Hart), Jeremy puts his bratwurst to the test. All seems well…until he starts to convulse and Hart starts to scream. Cut is quickly called »

I know, it's been a while since I've written one of these gore-soaked missives, but the upside to that is ... we have a lot to talk about! And since I wrote this during a lazy Sunday (happy belated holidays, btw) I figure it's time to break out the candy-coated bullet points! Let's start out with a freaky fistful of upcoming DVD releases:
Currently strewn across shelves are Donkey Punch and Vinyan, two festival-heavy horror films that couldn't possibly be more different. One's about venal young jerks, and the other is about heartbroken (but stupid) parents. Really bad things happen to all of them.
This Tuesday we're getting the old-school-style monster movie Splinter, which is really quite good. If you like prickly monsters, that is. On the same day ... whoa. It looks like someone actually bothered to exhume flicks like Repossessed, Slaughter High, and My Best Friend Is a Vampire. That »

Adult film actors Ron Jeremy and Veronica Hart have teamed up with mainstream actress Amber Benson to conjure up One-Eyed Monster, a comedy homage to classic horror films such as Alien and The Thing. The story is the cast and crew of an adult film become stranded in a blizzard, and things go horribly awry after Ron Jeremy's crotch becomes possessed by an aggressive alien entity. Ron Jeremy's rabid member goes on a bloody killing spree, intent on spreading its seed through the entire planet.
Films with killer dicks can be surprisingly entertaining. Yes, I just said that. It's true! Go watch Killer Condom. It's good! Surprisingly good! Whether or not Killer Condom is a fluke in the killer dick sub-genre remains to be seen; One-Eyed Monster could outdo it!
The DVD is due to hit shelves on April 28th, 2009. Pre-order your copy below, and read more about »
