‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Rated R?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

how-much-extra-footage-do-you-expect-will-be-shown-at-the-imax-screening-365533

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ has received a new MPAA rating, this time as an R rating. No, this is NOT for the theatrical version, but rather as an option for the home video under the title “Ultimate Edition” when it completes its theatrical run. It’s disappointing that we won’t get to see that kind of violence on the big-screen, though.

Hey Deadites, Jana here,

 

 

evil-dead-movie-poster-small

 

 

Who hasn’t heard the age-old story of a couple of buddies heading out into the woods, evil woods, fumbling around looking for a cabin. Instead of a relaxing break from the mundane, they discover the ‘Necronomicon‘, or basically the ‘Book of the Dead‘. It’s not just a book in a dead language, there’s a taped translation of the text! How lucky could they be, right?! Instead of staying away from the creepy vibes that have to be emanating from this unholy tome, they do what a handful of morons would do and play the thing! Of course, this releases an evil so heinous that one by one the moronic teens are possessed until it’s down to one to defeat the evil dead and survive the night.

Ben Chimes In With His ‘Evil Dead’ Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2013

Ben K., Here….

Evil-Dead-2013-1

As Fede Alvarez’s remake of the Sam Raimi horror classic came to a close, I heard a guy behind me mutter, “It was just a gorefest.” I resisted the urge to ask, “What exactly were you expecting?” When The Evil Dead came out back in 1981, was it not a gorefest? Was Evil Dead 2 not a gorefest? If by “just a gorefest” he meant that it lacked the humor of the original films, then perhaps he has a point. Gone were the many hat tips to The Three Stooges seen in Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness (aside from the “Fake Shemps” listed in the credits). The “Ashisms” were nowhere to be found until after the credits rolled. Still, for the fans who have been there from the beginning, this was more than a gorefest, indeed.

Hi, Bryan Here….

By the end of Alejandro Brugués’ foreign film Juan of the Dead, you’ll be chanting the film’s title over and over.  For the past ten years or so, the zombie genre has become a household brand and form of entertainment.  Each director of a new zombie film tries to find novel ways to portray the flesh-eating undead.  There are the comedic horror zombies of Shaun of the Dead and the scary-as-hell, running zombies in the recent Dawn of the Dead.  I’ve even seen African zombies,  stripper zombies, and nazi zombies.  With Juan of the Dead, we get a black- humor zombie film with a caricatured backdrop of modern-day political Cuba.

George Romero has given us some of the best, if not the best films in the zombie genre.  Hell, he invented the genre.  He has given us “Night of the Living Dead” , “Dawn of the Dead” (my personal favorite), and ” Day of the Dead”.  Some twenty years later the man returned to the zombie genre and gave us “Land of the Dead” which was good on its best day.  Then he gave us the Blair Witch/Cloverfield inspired “Diary of the Dead” which I thought was fantastic.  A true return to his political and class statements on society as he did with the earlier films of his career.

Now with “Survival of the Dead” we get a new look into the world of Romero’s zombie  universe.

Now I have been hearing quite a bit about this while it was being made, and sadly it did not get a theatrical release but maybe a handful of theatres across the states.  But non the less I was looking forward to seeing it.  If anything, Romero still finds the most creative and brutal ways to kill zombies so I would most likely get lucky and have a few cool blood spattered death scenes.

From most of the reviews of this I have read, it seems that most people down right hate this latest installment and they feel that Romero has lost it as a filmmaker and they wonder if he ever even had it.  I whole heartedly disagree.  I think his latest film “Survival of the Dead” is quite good.  Not his best, but still quite good and a great addition to the evolution of the zombie franchise.

This film takes place a little while after “Diary of the Dead” took place and takes one of the smaller characters from that movie, in this case military personnel, and follows their journey through the world zombie infested lands.

Meanwhile, there is an island not too far from the New England coast where people live with very few flesh eaters still roaming around.  On this island are two families that have lived on this island for quite sometime, even before the zombie outbreak.  It sort of plays out like a Romeo and Juliet type of scenario where these two prosperous families hate each other for their disagreements on what to do with the zombies.  One side wants to completely eradicate and kill every zombie whereas the other side wants to use the zombies for chores and slaves and keep them around and see if they can find a cure or to see if they can get the zombies to start eating animals instead of humans.  Personally, I think that is a pretty good story line set up and that it takes the “Dead” franchise into another evolution of what might happen if faced with these circumstances.

So the leader of the family that wants to eradicate all zombies is exiled to the mainland and a few of his cronies follow him there.  This is where the military personnel meet with him and they both decide to hitch a ride back to the island now packed with soldiers and weapons to gain control back of the island.

As you may be wondering, more zombies attack when let loose and quite a few deaths ensue, but not only from zombie attacks but from stubborn humans killing other humans which is a sad tale but also a true one.

As this film ends we are left with quite an amazing picture as to what is in store next for the evolution of zombies and how the rest of the human population will deal with it.

The death scenes are a plenty with  some great gore effects.  Sadly, Romero has not hired Tom Savini to do actual makeup for most of the gore, instead we get CGI gore which I hate, because it always looks ridiculous and stupid.  But, when people get ripped apart and their guts spill, it is all real make up and gore which put a smile on my face.

In all i thought this was a solid add to the franchise and look forward to whatever sequels Romero tends to make and to see his social commentary on society put into his work.  Kudos to you Romero.

In addition, you will get an AWESOME intro to the movie by Romero himself with zombies in the background working on the movie set and destroying things and when the zombies destroy things and interrupts Romero, he gets his sweet sweet revenge.  It is really funny.

Buy the movie HERE.

Celebrate the Life of George Romero!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan and Jana here….

George A. Romero 1940-2017

What a sad day this is. Just the other day, I was thinking and hoping that George Romero had one more zombie film in him left. That’s not the case as the Godfather of the zombie genre and one of the best filmmakers in the horror genre has died today at the age of 77 from lung cancer. With the past few years, the zombie genre has infiltrated every form of media. The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, and tons zombie epics have come in the forms of comic books, TV shows, films, and video games. There wouldn’t be any of this, if it weren’t for George Romero who brought us a super small budget film in 1968 called Night of the Flesh Eaters, later changed to Night of the Living Dead, which gave us the zombie we know today.

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 30th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Movie-Trailer-Pic

Since Marvel became their own movie studio back in 2008 with the first ‘Iron Man‘ movie, they have quickly become one of the most lucrative movie studios in Hollywood in less than ten years. With films like ‘Iron Man‘, ‘Thor‘, ‘Captain America‘, ‘Hulk‘, and the billion dollar blockbuster ‘The Avengers‘, you can see why so many people stand in line for hours on end to see the top visual effects, greatest actors, and the fun and thrilling story lines for their favorite superheroes. And of course we all know that Marvel is now famous for connecting each of their films with cameos of heroes from other movies and those exciting end credit sequences after each of their films.

I would have never thought of this casting decision, but it makes perfect sense, and I’m totally psyched about it. Tom Hiddleston or Loki from ‘The Avengers‘ will play the iconic country and western music singer Hank Williams in the film ‘I Saw The Light‘. Marc Abraham will direct the biopic film from a script he wrote, which was based off of the biography by Colin Escott.

Seems SyFy is tuning in to holiday craze with some themed original movies this coming season. Too bad only one of them actually sounds “original.” Ah well, we don’t watch SyFy for great filmmaking.

Hi Bryan Here….

I’ve been hearing about this film for a long long time.  I’m so glad it is finally getting released.  The poster looks great so far.  Love the tag line and love that it is from the producers of the 2003 version of’ Dawn of the Dead’.  Over the July 4th weekend, I had a Kurt Russell marathon at my house and one of the films we screened was Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’.  This was the crowd favorite out of the four we all watched.
