Bloody Disgusting got the chance to debut the first teaser poster for "[REC] 4: Apocalypse," the final chapter in Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza's first-person not-quite-zombie series. The poster's fine, putting Angela (Manuela Velasco) front and center, now possessed by the demonic entity which is responsible for the rapidly-spreading plague of the flesh-eating possessed.
The question is, after the stellar second entry, 2009's "[REC] 2," and the lackluster detour into horror comedy with "[REC] 3" (and a solo directorial effort by series co-creator Plaza; Balagueró is directing "Apocalypse" on his own), can the "[REC] 4" bring a fitting end to the series?
Mother's Day isn't until May 12 (you're welcome), but director Andres Muschietti's "Mama" will be hitting DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on on May 7 from Universal Pictures. With that in mind, the studio sent along this pair of e-cards for all of you feral children out there raised by vengeful entities (or if you have a good old-fashioned regular maternal figure as well).
After the jump, check out the second card as well as a clip featuring actress Jessica Chastain talking about her work in the film.
Recently I sat down with the incomparable Joe Kelly of Man of Action, who, like many people, was amazed I don’t like horror. This is a common misconception about myself, one that has happened since forever. I recall vividly during my college make-up class how the professor chose me to model all the broken bones, burns, and general disfigurements. I wore them dutifully, holding back my vomit and general nausea. My professor apologized afterwards when the color returned to my cheeks.
"World War Z" isn't the only major project coming from writer Max Brooks this summer. The man responsible for "The Zombie Survival Guide" has a sprawling, 250-page epic "Extinction Parade" coming from Avatar Press on June 19. Featuring an apocalypse where the zombies have not only taken over but cut into the food source of our vampire overlords, Brooks imagines humanity trapped between a hungry rock and an also hungry hard place.
With the June release of the first issue of "Extinction Parade" just around the corner, we got to ask Brooks five questions--about the eternal struggle between the living and undead, his thoughts on the zombie movie glut, and who would win in a cage match between the Loch Ness Monster and a mummy.
Well, that didn't take long. It was only back in February that the first casting announcements were being made, but the Amazon Original "Zombieland" pilot is available right now for your viewing pleasure (kind of).
It's the utter randomness of the British "trapped in a building with a monster" movie "Storage 24" that ultimately undoes "Darkhunters" director Johannes Roberts' latest. The characters--a mix of lovers and friends who don't seem like they would talk to each other unless they were, you know, trapped in a huge storage facility together, are a poor match for the film's alternately 9-16' tall monster. And without that connection, without any theme linking the would-be victims of and victors against this splay-mouthed beast, "Storage 24" ends up one of the alternately better produced bad "Alien" knockoffs out there.
Ever been worried about a wisecracking homicidal clown chasing you in the dark? No? Well, writer-director Conor McMahon has you covered with "Stitches," his tongue-in-cheek horror movie out next week on VOD, DVD, and Blu-ray from Dark Sky films. And in this clip, you can see the titular vengeful clown (played by British comedian Ross Noble) chasing after some of his teenaged prey.
A note to all would-be supernatural killers on tricycles: know your terrain.
