Savage New Red Band Trailer for Don’t Breathe Released

Don’t you ever judge a book by its cover, or for that matter judge a blind man an easy mark for three teen thugs! “Don’t Breathe,” which barrels into theaters August 26th, appears to teach you crazy kids a thing or two before you decide to invade someone’s home.

The film, stars Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, and Daniel Zovatto as the crew who suffers quite the punishment at the hands of their victim played by Stephen Lang. Lang, a veteran actor who has appeared in “Avatar,” “Tombstone,” and more recently as the sadistic Increase Mather in “Salem,” looks as menacing as any horror antihero we have seen in recent years.   Add this with the direction of Fede Alvaraz, best known for his direction of the “Evil Dead,” remake and you have a trailer which can only be described as twisted.  Have a peek below. read more

The love of the car culture, movie monsters, music, long drives to the middle of nowhere, a beautiful woman or… women all are connected to different parts of our lives. For author Robert E.

Stranger Things – Review

It’s been a really, really long time since I was captivated by a television show the way that I was, and am, captivated by Stranger Things.

After hearing the whispers about ST at my job a few weeks ago and then scrolling by a few people discussing it on the trusty old Facebook machine, my wife and I decided to give the show a whirl last week…we were both fascinated from episode one.

The show, set in Indiana 1983, opens with a scientist frantically scurrying down the corridor of a dimly lit lab toward an elevator. It’s clear that he is trying to escape from something and you can tell by the tension-filled score that something bad is on its way. As he finally makes it into the elevator and the doors begin to close, it seems like he might make it; that is, of course, until he’s snatched up by something on the ceiling. Immediately, the action music stops and we’re transported to the basement of a suburban home where four pre-teen boys are engrossed in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. read more

Feed the Black Review

While dealing with the loss of her mother, a young woman is torn between two worlds – one of good and one of evil. As her unattached state of mind weakens, she turns to drugs and during an overdose, hallucinates to the recollection of her past. Before death, she is faced with her final judgement. For the better of mankind, she will have to make a choice. Her choice, a predetermined path to darkness.

Having never seen any of Klayton Dean’s work, I had no idea what to expect when he sent me his thirty minute short titled Feed the Black. Well…holy shit. To say that this film is a complete shock to the senses is an understatement at best. It begins with a black screen and an eerie voice-over accompanied by low, hypnotic chanting. The speaker asks you to close your eyes as he sets a somber tone. After nearly five minutes of thought-provoking suggestions, the film begins. read more
