Promo Art, Synopsis for Basement

22 December 2009 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Details were scarce when we first announced actor Danny Dyer ( Severance , Doghouse ) committed to Basement in late October . Courtesy of Revolver Entertainment, we now have a synposis as well as the promo art you see on the left. Five diverse people inadvertently enter an underground base. They run into a nightmare scenario. Through a series of flashbacks we get clues and hints to why they are there and we realize that all have an important connection to each other and the place. But they soon learn that this situation is far bigger than them alone; it affects us all. Asham Kamboj writes and directs. Revolver will handle distribution in the UK. »

'Doghouse' Offers Plenty of Yucks and Yuks

1 December 2009 9:05 PM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Back in the '60s it was George Romero's brilliant Night of the Living Dead that kick-started America's love affair with zombies... the mindless flesh-eater obsession then made its way across the ocean to Italy where scores of cheap and disturbing films were churned out with drooling enthusiasm. Now Britain has wrestled the crown away and has become the undisputed king of zombie flicks with such terrifying entries as 28 Days Later, and its sequel, 28 Weeks Later.

One could also argue that nobody does comedy better then the British. They are masters of pitch black humor that frequently borders on the downright nasty. In comparison, the written dialogue in a typical Brit-Com is far sharper and wittier than any Seth Rogan/Ben Stiller/Jim Carrey film combined. Apparently, in America, acting like a retard is what passes for humor.

Horror-Comedy as a sub-genre is a difficult thing to pull off »

Still more vampire photos from Dead Cert

12 November 2009 8:51 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Producer Jonathan Sothcott sent along yet another couple of pics from his new vampire film Dead Cert, this time depicting veteran British actor Billy Murray as lead bloodsucker Dante Livenko. Sothcott and Murray also shared a couple of quick comments about the role and movie.

“To follow in the footsteps of actors such as Christopher Lee, Jack Palance, Louis Jourdan and Frank Langella is a thrill,” Murray, flashing his fangs with Loretta Basey in the first pic below, tells Fango. “This is one of the great parts, and I’m loving playing it. I am a much darker, more terrifying vampire than the Twilight audience is used too. It’s very gory.”

“Billy is one of the most underrated actors in the country,” Sothcott adds. “Someone recently described him at a meeting as simply ‘Billy Murray, English icon,’ and that’s what he is. But his vampire king is very »

Sitges ’09: My Sitges Story—Part 9

15 October 2009 3:10 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Sunday, October 11

Things are winding down at the 42nd edition of Spain’s Sitges international film festival (see last report here and go here for the fest’s official site), yet there are dozens more genre flicks left to see. So many movies, so little time! When Monday, October 12 rolls around, the event will have screened nearly 150 flicks. And that doesn’t count encores, dozens of shorts and the free screenings held at the town’s Brigadoon theater, where retrospectives on Eurohorror actor Jack Taylor, Vampyres director José Larraz and schlockmeister Juan Piquer Simon (Pieces, Slugs), plus Asian and Bollywood sidebars, unreel for both moviegoers and beachcombers.

My day gets off to an early 10:30 a.m. start with Solomon Kane, the new film by Britain’s Michael J. Bassett, director of Deathwatch and Wilderness. The lead character (played by Rome’s James Purefoy) is based on Conan creator Robert E. Howard »

Fantastic Fest 2009 – Doghouse Review

13 October 2009 12:39 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I have to say that Fantastic Fest goers were the perfect audience to enjoy this soon to be cult classic with. Doghouse is a British zombie film that has a truly unique and funny take on the genre.

Doghouse starts out by introducing us to Vince, a divorcee who’s friends are determined to get him back on track. His friends Neil (Danny Dyer) and Mikey (Noel Clarke) come up with the idea to go to Mikey’s home town where the ratio of women to men is 4 to 1, and apparently the women are all gorgeous. They along with several more friends rent a van with a hot driver Candy (Christina Cole) and head off to this supposed heaven for single men.

When they get there, not everything is as promised. The house they’re staying at is a mess, the place is filthy and it’s in the middle of nowhere. »

HorrorFest 2009: 'Doghouse'

11 October 2009 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to HorrorFest 2009.  This movie's got a wee case of "try-too-hard," and after a while, it sort of runs out of steam, but there's still a lot of "Doghouse" that I enjoyed.  I didn't care much for Jake West's first film, "Razor Blade Smile," and I haven't seen his second one, "Evil Aliens," but there's some good stuff in his new film, and it seems to me like he's come a long way in the last decade. Basically, "Doghouse" is a standard-issue zombie movie with a twist:  for some reason, the virus only affects women.  West uses that basic idea to set »

What's Up at the Squads

7 October 2009 6:02 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Well, it's October now, and just as all sites set their... well, sights on all things horror, Horror Squad's been ahead of the curve by covering it all year round! A-ha!

Seriously, though, as Weinberg told you, we've kicked off our Fates Worse Than Death series -- today's entry from yours truly regards that ever grisly Event Horizon. (Your suggestions are also welcome.) Peter's got the latest on the best in this week's genre discs (Trick 'r Treat, ho!), and newbie Brad McHargue keeps up the Fantastic Fest coverage with his look at Jake West's horror-comedy, Doghouse.

Mind you, the Sci-Fi Squad crew ain't slouching either, whether it's concerning their new genre DVDs of the week, their Fantastic Fest interview with Stingray Sam director Cory McAbee, their wonderfully gonzo glimpse at next month's disaster-tastic 2012, and a gallery of the downright geekiest tattoos I have ever seen.

So get crackin'! »

Fantastic Fest Review: Doghouse

4 October 2009 11:15 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I feel like I've said this next sentence a dozen times this year so far, but the new film from director Jake West is forcing me to utter it yet again. Successful horror comedies are incredibly rare.  Do I say this because West's newest film, Doghouse, is one of those rarities?  Or do I repeat this sad observation because his movie is just one more piece of cinematic evidence to support my thesis?  Considering Doghouse is neither scary nor funny the answer is sadly the latter. The premise for Doghouse starts out fairly solid. A group of guy friends decide to take a weekend trip in an effort to cheer up their recently divorced buddy, Vince.  Expecting to find a plethora of poontang the group head for a remote village reportedly populated with five women for every one man.  Unfortunately for them the military has been engaged in an odd bit of testing in the area resulting »
