I Was a Teenage Wereskunk Trailer Will Scare the Smell Out of You

I Was a Teenage Wereskunk Trailer Will Scare the Smell Out of You
Lovers of camp cinema and the Drive-in horror classics of the 1950s have a new reason to celebrate. In 2017, we're getting the sure to be classic I Was a Teenage Wereskunk. Today, we have the trailer for this dumpster diamond. And we have a poster that gleefully screams, 'Half man, half skunk, all stink!'

Beware: This trailer will scare the smell out of you! Neal McLaughlin directs I Was a Teenage Wereskunk as an homage to the works of John Waters. The premise is simple, it follows a teenager who transformers into the murderous wereskunk whenever he gets horny. His monstrous new appearance occurs shortly after getting sprayed in the face by an enchanted skunk.

The movie stars Scott Monahan, Shey Lyn Zanoti, and Charlie Farrell. You can purchase the film now off the film's official website or order it up on Amazon video-to-go. The trailer is really something

Giantess Attack Trailer Goes on an Insane Superhero Rampage

Giantess Attack Trailer Goes on an Insane Superhero Rampage
Two bitter TV stars grow to giant proportions due to a scientific accident. They carry on their battle, destroying Hollywood. Naked. Maybe. That's the enticing premise behind the retro-throwback Giantess Attack. We have the first trailer. And it promises the best worst movie of 2017. Maybe.

In Giantess Attack, two unemployable actresses become real superheroes thanks to twin space fairies. This is a true homage to Ultraman, Electra Woman and all those happy 70's Saturday Mornings spent as a kid in front of the TV. This sci-fi throwback stars Tasha Tacosa, Rachel Riley, Christine Nguyen, Jed Rowen, Robert "Corpsy" Rhine and Jay Woelfel. The movie was successfully funded by Kickstarter earlier in the year.

Jeff Leroy directs Giantess Attack, though no screenwriting credits are given. We're not sure why or how that is possible after witnessing some off the great one-liners in the trailer, unless this is all improvised. Leroy is

Rat Scratch Fever Finally Infecting DVD Players this April

The wait is finally over for Jeff Leroy’s super low budget everything-and-the-kitchen-sink creature feature about astronauts who bring back mutant space rats that grow to monstrous proportions and cause all hell to break loose in downtown Los Angeles. This April on DVD you will experience Rat Scratch Fever.

Synopsis:

Jeff Leroy's schlock masterpiece Rat Scratch Fever is one the greatest feats of cinematic ingenuity thus far this century. Made on a budget of cheeseburgers and good intentions, this phantasmagoria of puppets, miniature sets, greenscreens, and live Food of the Gods-style enlarged rodents rat-chets the Dark Star homemade aesthetic to a new glorious extreme, reaching beyond sci-fi and horror conventions to become something truly transcendent, psychedelic, and wow-inducing -- and that barely rat-scratches the surface of this madcap ride! A veteran in the world of low-budget horror and softcore skin flicks, Leroy throws everything in his resourceful arsenal (and

Indie Horror Month: Sean Cain’s Five Favorite Indie Horror Movies

While putting together our Indie Horror Month coverage, we decided to reach out to some of our favorite independent filmmakers working today to hear from them on what some of their favorite independent genre flicks are.

One of the first we spoke with is writer/director/producer Sean Cain. Cain hit the scene in 2006 with his feature film debut Naked Beneath the Water and since then has gone on to direct Silent Night, Zombie Night and the upcoming Breath of Hate (which is currently in post-production) as well as producing other gritty genre flicks including Someone’s Knocking on the Door and Warning!!! Pedophile Released.

Here’s some of Cain’s favorite indie genre flicks:

1. Shatter Dead

As a fledgling filmmaker, this zombie opus was a tremendous influence on me…twice. The first time was in 1995, having finished my first film, Naked Beneath the Water, I followed Scooter McCrae’s

New Trailer For Rat Scratch Fever

New Trailer For Rat Scratch Fever
A space mission gone horribly wrong returns to earth, bringing with it hordes of gigantic mutant rats that invade the planet…

Fans of campy, low budget horror flicks, get ready for Rat Scratch Fever. Writer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor, Jeff Leroy appears to have borrowed his style from the 1976 film Food of the Gods. From the look of this hilariously over-the-top trailer, full of miniature sets covered by live rodents, it may be shaping up to be this year’s Birdemic: Shock and Terror.

For Southern California residents, the world premiere of Rat Scratch Fever will be taking place on February 26th, at The Cinefamily in Los Angeles.

We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Mouse Trap. The Rat Scratch Fever Trailer Arrives!

Man, oh, man. A motion picture about giants rats from outer space is exactly what I need right now. The trailer for Jeff Leroy’s low-budget science fiction epic “Rat Scratch Fever” has everything you could possibly want from a cheesy action flick, and that includes enormous rodents terrorizing human beings on a remote planet. What more could you ask for? Don’t answer that until you’ve had a good, hard look at the trailer embedded below. If you have any complaints, then you’re just being silly.

When her mission goes awry after being attacked by giant rats from another planet,

Silent Night, Zombie Night and Blood Spray: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Sean Cain.

Sean Cain has been interviewed here regarding this project, and Silent Night, Zombie Night is heavy on the dramatic, light on the action and character driven (interview here). In other words, Sean Cain is so comfortable with this genre that he manages to add some soap opera elements to a post-apocalyptic world. How is that for confidence?

Silent Night, Zombie Night gets the ball rolling fairly quickly, with a random zombie attack in a quiet driveway. The blood flows, the baseball bats fly, toes get shot off and then the viewer is put right smack in the middle of a three way love story involving characters Frank (Jack Forcinito), Sarah (Nadine Stenovitch) and Nash (Andy Hooper). Silent Night, Zombie Night is only partially a horror film and mostly a drama.

This hat goes off to Jeff Leroy the special effects supervisor on this project, as the

New Rat Scratch Fever Trailer Invades Web

Somehow, I don't know how, I have been grossly neglecting reporting on Jeff Leroy's ambitiously cheesy and damn proud of it Rat Scratch Fever. Scratch that. One look at the new trailer for it, and I've got me a serious case of (Insert Title Here).

The budget is low but the creativity is high, as evidenced by this latest trailer for Rat Scratch Fever, the terrifying tale of giant rats from outer space running amok in Los Angeles. Not to be confused with the human-sized rats that already run amok in the streets of L.A.; we call them agents. Rimshot!

Low budget terror involving giant vermin is nothing new to writer-director Jeff Leroy; giant spiders attacked in his 2003 monster mash Creepies. But Rat Scratch Fever - this looks completely off the charts.

"The toothy terror begins when astronaut Sonja (Tasha Tacosa) travels with a team to a distant planet in search of life.

A new batch of stills for ‘Rat Scratch Fever’!

You’ll remember not too long ago we brought you the trailer for the ultra low fi sci-fi creature feature Rat Scratch Fever. Jeff Leroy’s alien giant rat invasion film, Rat Scratch Fever, is nearing completion. The film tells the tale of an army of giant, mutant rats — brought back from space on a returning Earth spaceship — that causes death and destruction for Los Angeles and the world. We’ve been directed towards a batch of new stills from the film!

“The film is a homage to 1976’s Food Of The Gods. I picked up *Famous Monsters* magazine every month, and they had a cover story about Bert I. Gordon’s film with all kinds of really cool stills of giant rats attacking people, with oversized rat heads by makeup mastero Thomas Burman. Food Of The Gods didn’t live up to that hype, but it still had a
