When the surprise news broke earlier this week that a fifth Phantasm movie — called Phantasm: Ravager — was not just in the works but had actually been completed, it raised an awful lot of questions. Who directed the latest entry in the beloved cult horror franchise about the ghoulish, mysterious Tall Man and his lethal flying spheres? Which previous actors from the series (if any) would be making an appearance in the film? And when might we see some footage from the first Phantasm movie in 16 years?

If you’ve seen the fabulously entertaining Ozploitation documentary Not Quite Hollywood – which tracks the rise of Down Under genre films in the ’70s and ’80s — then you will be familiar with producer and Quentin Tarantino favorite Antony I. Ginnane, the so-called “Roger Corman of Australia” whose output includes the horror movies Patrick, Dead Kids, and Thirst. “But how can I learn more about these films?” I pretend to hear you cry. Well, good news! This month, Severin Films is releasing all three terror flicks in Blu-ray/DVD combo packs (as well as the self-explanatory DVD, Ozploitation Trailer Explosion) which seemed an excellent excuse to call Ginnane and have him talk about them.
Will you celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day by hoisting a Guinness? Or will you instead check out the first clip from Leprechaun: Origins, the out-this-summer horror reboot starring Dylan Postl (aka WWE wrestler Hornswoggle)?
Actually, thinking about it, this isn’t really an “either/or” situation. So may we suggest you order up a pint of the black nectar and, while you’re waiting for the sucker to settle, check out the Hornswoggle-introduced footage below.
If you’re a fan of Roger Corman or Joe Dante then you’re probably also a fan of Dick Miller, who is something of a fixture in both their filmographies.
And even if you’re not, there’s a very good chance you’re at least familiar with his face, given that the veteran character actor has appeared in more than 150 films and TV shows, including The Terminator, both Gremlins movies, and Star Trek: Next Generation. READ FULL STORY
SXSW: Tobe Hooper talks about the new, restored version of 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER
On Monday, March 10, a forty-year-old terror will return to Austin, Tx., when a newly restored version of horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is screened at the SXSW Festival ahead of the movie’s theatrical rerelease this summer. “It’s great on the big screen,” says filmmaker Tobe Hooper, who cowrote and directed the infamous 1974 film in the countryside outside of Austin, and also worked on the restoration. “It’s in 7.1 sound that completely wraps around you and in 4K [resolution]. The film works as well, if not better, than it originally did.”
Over the past few years, actor Nick Damici has faced off against bloodthirsty virus victims (Mulberry Street), vampires (Stake Land), and cannibals (last year’s terrific We Are What We Are). So what’s next on the agenda for the New York-based thespian and excellent cook? That would be werewolves.
In acclaimed director Adrián García Bogliano’s new horror-drama Late Phases, Damici is a war veteran whose son (Ethan Embry) forces him to move into a retirement community beset deadly animal attacks. “I play a blind 70-year-old guy who moves into a retirement community upstate,” elaborates the actor. “First night he’s there, a werewolf attacks him. And then it’s war — the blind guy against the werewolves.” READ FULL STORY
It has been two and a half long years since the release of the last Human Centipede film — or two and a half very short years, depending on how you feel about the infamous movies, in which people are attached together to form the titular monstrosity. Either way, Dutch writer/director and series overlord Tom Six is now preparing to unleash the third film in the franchise, the U.S.-shot Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). So what can horror fans expect from the final installment of this notoriously grotesque and much-parodied series?
There’s more chance of a snowball surviving a two-week vacation in Hell than the movie Zombeavers ever scoring a best film Oscar nomination. But that hasn’t stopped the folks behind the forthcoming horror-comedy about — you got it! — zombified beavers releasing “For your consideration” Oscar parody posters which riff on Gravity, Her, and American Hustle.
You can check out both the posters and the Zombeavers trailer below. READ FULL STORY
