I thought I’d be nice and share with you guys a little something… Halloween is approaching at an alarming rate and there’s nothing better than to have a small (and somewhat horrifying) gift for those horror lovers in your life. It’s just an idea… Remember TRICK OR TREAT!
Assault On Precinct 13 meets Dawn Of The Dead in The Horde, the latest addition to the ever-rising wave of superlative French horror cinema. Winner of the International Fantasy Film Awards for Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography at the 2010 Fantasporto International Film Festival, this impressive debut feature from writing-directing team Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher is a must-see for zombie movie fans, not least because it features some of the most awesome, edge-of-your-seat, close-combat human versus zombie beat-downs ever committed to film. From what I have heard this is a must-see and believe me it’s already on my wishlist for DVD’s to own… so get it, now!
I simply cannot wait to get my hands on this puppy! Having already garnered rave reviews that have seen it hailed as “a gripping, intense and inventive horror-thriller” (Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood), “a triumph. relentless and harrowing” (Steve Barton, Dread Central) and “terrifying. will do for skiing what Jaws’did for swimming” (Brad Miska, Bloodydisgusting.com), Frozen is the latest shocker from writer-director Adam Green (Hatchet, Spiral) and producer Peter Block (the Saw movies, Daybreakers,Crank, Rambo).
Now I have not even heard of this movie (don’t judge me, I’m still stuck in the bundu’s), but as far as the info read, it seems somewhat intriguing… I mean it was the winner of Best Film at the 2009 annual International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival and apparently the tense and bloody horror movieTwelve adds a brand new recruit to the hallowed ranks of memorable screen psycho killers that include Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Leatherface and introduces a future Hollywood Scream Queen-in-the-making in the form of impressive newcomer Emily Hardy starring in her debut feature. Seems good, right?
Directed by Robert Lieberman (The Stranger, Earthsea, Fire In The Sky) and starring Erika Christensen (Parenthood, Swimfan, Traffic), Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives, John Tucker Must Die) and horror genre favourite Bill Moseley (Halloween, Grindhouse, The Devil’s Rejects), The Tortured is a disturbing and gruesome vigilante horror movie from Oren Koules and Mark Burg, producers of the hugely successful Saw series of films. I was sold when i read Jesse Metcalfe… he’s the yummy that the screen needs. (okay I’m drooling at my own laptop background, but he’s really just so pretty!)
There you go folks I did my good deed for the year, and if your house get’s egged or something, don’t blame me. Oooh! And I’m watching Trick ‘R Treat for my annual Halloween treat, what are you up to?
