First Look at the New Freddy

I think that the trailer for the upcoming revival of the Elm Street franchise looks promising and it seems that Samuel Bayer have grasped the essence of the story, as well. The trailer focuses on the background story of Freddy, and shows how a group of parents traps him inside a building, which they set on fire, burning him alive. After that, it shows Freddy in his true element, the nightmares.

Zombieland Review

First, Zombieland is a comedy, but it contains plenty of gore and bloodshed to satisfy any hardcore zombie fan as well. It has everything and I mean everything related to zombies like Zombie brides, a weird football player episode and of course, the surprise zombies in the bathroom scene, plus the zombie chick in the yellow bikini, as well. I especially like the scene, where a zombie gets up-close and personal, with a piano!

It’s rather apparent, that the major frontrunner in this fun/ bloodshed genre, Shaun of the Dead, has inspired the team behind Zombieland. However, I think that they have managed to create a movie that is able to make you laugh and jump with fright at the same time, in a slightly cooler way than its predecessor did.

The Cozy Deathtraps in Saw VI

It’s just a couple of weeks before Saw VI will go up, on October 23, and I guess that you’re as excited as I am, to see what kind of cozy deathtraps Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton have come up with, this time.

To be honest, the main reason that I relish the Saw franchise is for the roughshod and genius traps, the story comes in second place, for me anyway. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to take a look of the known traps in Saw VI.

New Stepfather Stills

In the photos below you’ll see various shoots of Dylan Walsh as the stepfather David Harris, as well as Penn Badgley and Amber Heard.

2012 5min Preview

A 5 minutes preview clip of Roland Emmerich’s disaster movie 2012 has found its way onto the net. Basically in 2012 Emmerich shows us how our world goes down the toilet at the year of 2012, and in this preview clip, we can see how he choose to spend some of the huge budget of $240M, while doing it.

The clip is rather impressive, starts with John Cusack calling his family and in panic tells them to pack their bags, because California is going down. Of course, they will not listen, since the government has told them that they are fine now. Needles to say, just seconds afterwards, California starts to go down, literally.

The House of the Devil Trailer

Ti West has both written and directed The House of the Devil, which is supposed to be very creepy, according to the ones that have seen it. Jocelin Donahue is playing the main character and it’s her lead role debut, as well. The movie also stars the cult actors, Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov.

The story plays out somewhere in the 80’s, where the college sophomore Sam (Donahue) takes an odd babysitting job at an old couple (Noonan and Woronov) with no kids, in order to pay the deposit on an apartment that she needs.
