The Zombots attack in 'Frankenstein's Army' clip -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

frankensteins-army.jpg

From the Transformers movies to The World’s End to Frances Ha (probably), you can hardly move these days without seeing films about killer robots. But only the World War II-set Frankenstein’s Army boasts killer Zombots. This unforgettably grotesque, one-of-a-kind, found-footage horror movie stars Luke Newberry and Joshua Sasse as Russian soldiers on a mission behind German lines and Karel Roden as a crazed descendant of Baron von Frankenstein who has created an army of half-zombie, half-machine monstrosities.

The demented work of first-time filmmaker Richard Raaphorst, Frankenstein’s Army is unleashed to Blu-ray and DVD today. But the brave of heart can check out an exclusive, mayhem-filled, and strong-language-featuring clip below.

Fantastic Fest announces closing night film

Filmmakers don’t get much more fantastic — in every sense — than Terry Gilliam, the agreeably bonkers auteur whose filmography includes Time Bandits, Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. So it seems appropriate Fantastic Fest has decided to close this year’s event with his new movie, The Zero Theorem. The Christoph Waltz-starring film, which concerns a reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst, will screen at the Austin, Tx.-based genre festival on September 26.

Check out a terrifying clip from the new horror film 'Frankenstein's Army'

FRANKENSTEINS-ARMY

There are a number of Frankenstein-themed films in the pipeline, from the Aaron Eckhart-starring I, Frankenstein to Guillermo del Toro’s long-gestating adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel. But in terms of sheer out-and-out derangement, it’s hard to imagine any of these projects topping Frankenstein’s Armywhich is in select cinemas and available on VOD beginning July 26.

Set in Europe during World War II, this found-footage film concerns a battalion of Russian soldiers who find themselves battling a group of half-man, half-machine “zombots” created by the great-great-grandson of Baron von Frankenstein. Directed by Richard Raaphorst and starring Karel Roden (Hellboy) as the Baron’s insane descendant, the result has to be seen to be believed. Those with a strong stomach can check out an exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY

Check out a gruesome clip from the new horror film, 'Cockneys vs Zombies'

Cockneys-Versus-Zombies-2.jpg

There is a saying in Britain: “It does exactly what it says on the tin.” This colloquialism derives from ’90s-era TV ads for a brand of quick-drying woodstain — which did indeed prominently feature the phrase “quick-drying woodstain” on the tins — but could equally apply to the new U.K. horror film, Cockneys vs Zombies. Starring Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman), Alan Ford (Snatch), Tony Gardner (The Thick of It) and the late, great British TV icon Richard Briers, the movie finds a group of London-living folks facing off against a bunch of ghouls who aren’t technically “living” at all.

Directed by Matthias Hoene, Cockneys vs Zombies arrives in select cinemas on Aug. 2 and will also be available on VOD. But you can see an exclusive — and gruesome — scene below. READ FULL STORY

Director Larry Fessenden talks about his monster-fish movie 'Beneath' and its 'black humor'

Beneath-movie-poster.jpg

In the new monster movie Beneath, a group of boat-trapped teens are menaced by a giant fish — although, as things go from bad to worse to whatever-comes-after-worse, it becomes clear the real monsters are the kids themselves rather than their piscine predator.

“That’s the point of the film!” laughs Beneath director Larry Fessenden, whose previous credits include 2001′s Wendigo and 2006′s The Last Winter. “That’s a little bit about my obsession that people have been parenting wrong. I tried to show some compassion for the characters, but they’re all just in for themselves and it leads to a bad end. The fish is just doing what he does!”

Starring Daniel Zovatto, Bonnie Dennison, and Mark Margolis (a.k.a. Tio Salamanca from Breaking Bad), Beneath is now playing in select cinemas (including New York’s IFC Center) and is available on VOD. The movie will be screened on Chiller TV this fall.

Larry Fessenden talks much more about Beneath below.
