Predator: Dark Ages

One of the coolest things you’ll find on the Internet besides pictures of naked bare boobies (just when you think you’ve seen ’em all, a new one pops up), is a ridiculously kick-ass fan-made film that puts the Predator in the days of the Templar Knights, those guys who wear garbage cans as helmets and stab people with swords that look cool over your fireplace.

Predator: Dark ages

Predator: Dark Ages, made after they raised enough Middle Age fun bucks, is set during the Crusades. As the press release goes, the “faith and fighting skills of a group of Templar Knights is put to the test when they encounter the Predator. Their battle is the thing myths and legends are born from.”

Predator: Dark Ages

One of the best fan films ever made, Predator: Dark Ages clocks in at nearly a half hour and the Predator doesn’t look dorky; They really put a lot of time, effort and your dollars into this –and it’s worth it. Click HERE to watch it. Then go put a garbage an on your head and rule the neighborhood.

Addicted To Horror

The House on the Frontier

Very frustrating to have horror movie ad materials smeared all over the Internet and not actually have a movie to back it up. Such is the situation with The House on the Frontier, in pre-production as of this e-barfing.

Worse still is the movie’s description is about as dazzling as a burned out light bulb: “There’s a house where the world of the living ends…and it’s waiting for the next visitors.” We can only hope the movie isn’t as generic as the ad line.

One Drop

Like a freshly opened can of Molson™, the crowdfunded One Drop (pending 2015), a rather polished indie horror film from Canada, shows more promise: “A drug addict single mother overdoses. She wakes up in a medical facility to find that everyone is dead and she’s nine months pregnant.”

Yep, it only takes one drop to accomplish all of the above.

Deimosimine

Speaking of drugs, in the horribly titled Deimosimine (2016) is in reference to a substance a girl gets hooked on. To wit: “Cindy is a twenty-something girl who has had a rough life. She believes that her wealthy mother killed her father and got away with it. After years of running from this horrible past, she turns to heroin to cope with her painful memories. Embarrassed by her daughter’s addiction, her mother seeks out a doctor who has created a cure for all addictions…a drug that induces fear within the addict, a fear so frightening and real that, theoretically, the patient will not want to go back to those dark places and thus stop using.”

“Cindy becomes addicted to this drug (Deimosimine), and starts to believe she is hunting down demons, monsters, and aberrations, but in reality is slaughtering humans, becoming a mass murderer. As she ups her dosage, the drug begins to alter the chemical balance in her brain and she begins to become enveloped into this dark other world without the heroin.”

Deimosimine hasn’t even begun filming and they’ve released teaser art and plot? At least they have time to fix both.

Bunny The Killer Thing

Haven’t been offended by weener nudity, graphic gore or micro-budgeted horror lately? Then you haven been watching enough evening news. So now you can get your depravity fix with Bunny The Killer Thing (release pending 2015).

Besides boasting a terribly lazy movie title, Bunny The Killer Thing’s trailer packs more offensive punch than most entire movies with all the stuff I mentioned in the first paragraph. And here’s a taste of what you’ll find…

Bunny The Killer Thing

“In the dark winter woods of Finland, a group of Finnish and British holiday makers are stuck in a cabin where they are terrorized by a creature which is half human, half rabbit called Bunny the Killer Thing, who is after anything that resembles the female genitals.”

Spoiler: The half human/half rabbit creature is a guy running around in a costume with an oversized rubber hangy doo dripping and flopping around. And here’s the really offensive part: the costume looks filthy and in all likelihood smells like a junior high school gym locker. Ick.

Jaws In Your Bathtub

Jaws

“You’re going to need a bigger toy box…”

A re-casting of the famous line in Jaws (1975) in which Roy Scheider’s character Chief Martin Brody is chumming the sea with fish guts and Jaws pops out and causes Brody to pollute his pants.

Coming soon is a new Jaws ReAction toy figures by Funko™. Their website says it’ll be released in July doesn’t line up with Amazon.com’s available date of September 30. No worries – Korea will probably bootleg this thing and have it for sale by the end of today.

A Gremlins (1984) set is being released at the same time as well. But I never liked those little trouble-making toilet brushes, so put me in the “not even close to being interested” column. Nope, I want me some Jaws.

Gremlins

The coolest part is the air tank accessory, which fits as nicely in Jaws’ mouth as action figure/shark hunter Quint. (For realism they should’ve added a beer can accessory to go along with Quint’s harpoon.) Then you have marine biologist and all-around wise-guy Matt Hooper. Oddly, we looks built to the scale of Quint and Brody. In the movie Hooper is a little dude, a veritable Scooby snack for Jaws.

Each uneaten figure is sold separately for $19.99 and Jaws for $24.99 (on Amazon), or buy ’em altogether for $49.88 + $4.99 shipping. Seems reasonable given how much fun time you’ll get in the tub with these guys. OK, that didn’t come out right. Really wish they would’ve made Quint’s boat, Orca. Now I’m gonna have to use a cereal bowl carrying his next three meals for Jaws to attack/kill/eat.

Boogeyman Comes Out Of The Closet

Boogeyman

As a kid Tim saw his dad get taken by the Boogeyman when he was just old enough to be traumatized for life by the unfortunate experience. Tim’s older now and has a girlfriend who puts up with him sleeping on the floor and not having anything stored in closets – except Boogeymen. That’s not good feng-shui.

Tim’s ghost mom tells him to go back to the family home and the scene of the dad-taking. Really good idea. There Tim discovers a history of children being taken by the Boogeyman, him being one if his “protective” dad hadn’t gotten in the way.

Boogeyman

All of this is just an excuse to get Tim to go into the closet, which he does. It acts as a time portal, transporting him back and forth to his old bedroom. Why he didn’t use it to go to the store is a glaring plot hole.

Boogeyman

Solid creep-out moments, including the ghost kid victims of Boogeyman and bathtubs filled with blood instead of hot soapy bubbles and shampoo bottles. Taking it one step further, Boogeyman turns into electricity and possesses toys.

Boogeyman

Through an overly-long set-up, Tim finally grows a sac and throws a solid slobberknocker, sending Boogeyman back to the place of coats, shoe boxes filled with pictures instead of shoes, and some other junk you don’t use anymore. This paves the way for several sequels no one asked for.

Boogeyman (2005) is a sorta nice spin on a fond childhood memory, though B-man should probably stay out of that one box in my closet marked “Evidence.”

Zombie Ghost Bug

Virus of the Dead

A viral zombie, a demon ghost, a mouth bug. That’s what’s new on your horror movie horizon. Or, if you’re not into those kinds of things, nothing is on your horizon. Nothing at all. Welcome to boring.

Virus of the Dead (releasing in the UK on August 29, 2015) comes with a twist – the entire thing was shot on smartphones, webcams and video logs (or “vlogs”).  This is an anthology with each of the 18 segments only lasting five minutes each.  Good thing Virus of the Dead is about zombies or they’d have to call it V/H/S (2012).

Before I Wake

Up next is Before I Wake (2015) in which a couple who lost their young son to the clutches of death, go to a little boy pet shop (or “adoption agency”) and get a replacement. Slight problem with this model – his dreams and nightmares manifest physically as he sleeps. Pffft – in my youth they called that wetting the bed. Before I Wake looks to cash in on the onslaught of generic wetting-your-pants ghost movies currently scaring tweeners in mall cineplexes.

Bite

This one’s kind of icky. In Bite (2015), Casey, a bride-to-be at her bachelorette party getaway, gets a seemingly harmless bite from an unknown insect. Soon she starts exhibiting insect like traits. Between her physical transformation and her wedding anxiety, Casey succumbs to her new instincts and begins creating a hive that not only houses her translucent eggs, but feeds on the flesh of others.

Translucent eggs. I wonder how many breakfasts would be ruined by a serving of those, bug embryos or not. Still, cook anything in enough butter and it’ll taste good.

The Truth About UFOs

Unidentified Flying Objects: The True Story of Flying Saucers

Unidentified Flying Objects: The True Story of Flying Saucers (1956) is a long-winded documentary turned into a movie about the burgeoning UFO phenomenon in the late ’40s/early ’50s. Do they show any flying saucers? Not until the very end of a b-o-r-i-n-g story loaded with endless tech talk of a few close encounters with military flying objects.

Unidentified Flying Objects: The True Story of Flying Saucers

And when they do get around to showing you some UFO action, the footage is just of glowing lights in the sky as opposed to the ground. In which case they wouldn’t be flying. Then we’d have to call ’em UGOs. That doesn’t work for me in the slightest.

I wish flying saucers were made out of shiny future metal instead of hall closet lighting.
