B-Movie Gloriousness Trailer: Night of the Living Deb!

Night of the Living Deb

Can a zombie apocalypse facilitate romance – or is t a big buzz kill?

Deb, nerdy and endearingly awkward, wakes up in the apartment of Ryan, the hottest guy in Portland, Maine. Neither can remember how that happened, but when he attempts to get her home, they face a zombie apocalypse. Timing…

Night of the Living Deb is a ‘zomromcom’ that looks to fit in cozily next to Shaun of the Dead and Warm Bodies as one of those oddball B-movie bursts of inspiration that pop up from time to time and combine classic horror tropes with weird romance. Plus, Ray Wise.

Night of the Living Deb also comes from Dark Sky Films, so chances are it’s as gloriously goofy fun as the trailer suggests. MPI is releasing Night of the Living Dead on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD on September 6th. Check out the aforementioned trailer after the break.

APPLESAUCE_4

Tuesdays are special for fans of New York radio talk show host Steve Bricks. That’s the night he asks his fans about the worst things they’ve ever done – and they tell him!

After Ron Welz calls in with his story, he starts getting body parts sent to him. Ron quickly becomes paranoid – who’s doing this to him? It could be anyone who listens to Bricks – and that’s a lot of suspects.

Applesauce, from writer/director Onur Tukel, premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and will be available on VOD, DVD and blu-ray on November 24th. Check out the quietly bizarre trailer following the jump.

CIFF Review: LFO: Sounds Like Dark Fun!

LFO - Robert's Basement - 10-05-14

A lonely, sad sack scientist wannabe discovers a combination of very low frequencies that appear to make people extremely suggestible. At first, he uses his discovery to act out his wildest fantasies, but then, as his past catches up with him, he goes farther than even he could have imagined.

LFO is a micro-budgeted, low-fi sci-fi comedy from Sweden’s Antonio Tublen that looks at human nature in a supremely twisted way. It was one of my favorite films at this year’s Calgary International Film Festival.

DVD REVIEW: The House of the Devil – Old School Thriller!

The House of the Devil opens with a graphic card that claims seventy per cent of American adults in the ‘80s believed that there were Satanic cults that abducted and sacrificed people – and that thirty per cent believed that we didn’t hear about because of a government cover up. So, we know going that this a particular type of horror film.

Samantha [Jocelin Donahue] is a college student who needs to come up with a lot of money to cover the rent of an apartment – which she needs to get away from her slutty, slobby dorm roommate. When she spies a flyer on one of the various bulletin/flyer boards on campus, she thinks she’s got it made – despite some good advice from her best friend, Megan [Greta Gerwig]. The circumstances surrounding the babysitting job are peculiar to say the least – and the couple who hire her are beyond odd. But, she needs the money – and even an impending lunar eclipse can’t sway her.
