Cool Repo Men Posters

I wrote about Repo Men a couple of days ago and today I found that they had released some very cool posters for it as well.

Even though it’s only January and the movie year has just started, I do believe that these posters could be one of the coolest posters of the year, or what do you think?

Repo Men, is a sci-fi movie, which isn’t for the squeamish ones. The plot revolves around a high tech company that manufactures human organs, which they are selling expensive, as you can see in the posters.

Twilight Saga in Pencil Strokes

If you’re like me, having difficulties to embrace the movie adaptations of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, you will soon have an alternative, which might suite you better that let you see the story in a completely new perspective.

My biggest problem with the movies is that I find them too far away from the charmed experience; I got from reading the books, which makes the movies to come out as wimpish, to me.

However, as said soon you can enjoy this vampire saga in a completely new format, as Yen Press is about to publish, Twilight: The Graphic Novel, by the graphics artist Young Kim.

Fierce Wolfman TV Spot

The third TV spot for Joe Johnston’s, most likely epic monster movie, The Wolfman, has just sailed up online and what a trailer it is. It’s one of the most intense that I have had the pleasure to see in a while!

It’s barely 30 seconds long, but the creators has managed to pack it so full of both dramatic and brutal action scenes that it will make your eyes watering with desire, to see this one as it screams into the cinemas on February 12, next month.

Another movie poster has also surfed up but, opposed to the trailer, it’s both horrible bad and boring, though.

Repo Men

Repo Men, with Jude Law and Forest Whitaker is a sci-fi action flick, with a slightly bizarre touch, directed by Miguel Sapochnik, after an adaption of the novel, “The Repossession Mambo”.

The plot in Repo Men is set in a near future, where a company called The Union has managed to extend humans life, through their sophisticated and advanced mechanical organs.

However, these organs doesn’t come cheap and if you don’t pay your bill, the company sends out their repo men, to reclaim them, regardless of the comfort or the life of the bearer. This tends to be a bit messy, from time to time…

Shutter Island

Just reading the line up for Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and stumble upon names like, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Leonardo DiCaprio, Michelle Williams and Jackie Earle Haley, makes my eyes ache of anticipation.

After looking at the trailer, I belive that if it’s just half as good as it looks, it will certainly be another Scorsese classic, with one or two Oscar nominations as well.

The movie is set in 1954 at Shutter Island a hospital housing patients that are criminally insane and so dangerous and damaged that no other facility can manage them.

After a female patient managed to escape from the hospital, the promising U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio), is put on the case.

ZMD Trailer

I think that the trailer for the upcoming zombie movie, ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction, is quite marvelous and I cannot wait until I can let my eyes feast on this one at this years Horror Fest, which starts on Jan 29.

Or what can you say about quotes like these:

“Don’t Shoot I’m Gay!”

Boy: “Dad she was bitten! Have you never seen a zombie movie before?”

Man: “Brian, You know I’m a vampire man!”

Survival of the Dead

I like George A. Romeo’s zombies, just because I find them to be the more realistic them other zombies, as they actually appears to be dead; moving slowly and clumsy, and they aren’t that strong or smart either.

Now, Romero is back with another zombie movie, Survival of the Dead, is his sixth “Dead” movie. It’s also a kind of a sequel to Diary of the Dead, as the story takes on where Diary ended.

In Survival of the Dead, we follow the people who ripped off the teenagers in Diary of the Dead and how their efforts to find a safe haven, from the flesh eating zombies.

They learn about Patrick O’Flynn, located in Delaware, who might be able to escort them to a safe place. As the party arrives to Delaware, they are double crossed. Together with O’Flynn, they find a ferryboat and heads out to Plum Island.

Eight Legged Freaks Review

Eight Legged Freaks, is quite a charming monster movie from 2002, signed by the “They Nest” director Ellory Elkayem, whom both penned and directed.

Notable is that my favorite doomsday director, Roland Emmerich, was the executive producer for this movie. The main cast consists of David Arquette (Scream), Kari Wuhrer, Scott Terra and Scarlett Johansson.

The story is set in a slow and lazy mining town, somewhere in Arizona, who has seen better days. In the opening scenes, we see a truck driver lose a barrel of toxic waste, while he avoids running over a rabbit. The barrel rolls down and lands in a small pond, where it starts to leak out its hazardous substance.
