Prepare to plunge into panic with Waxwork Records’ release of King Kong Escapes Original Motion Picture Score by Akira Ifukube. Directed by the king of kaiju, Ishirō Honda.
Cavitycolors have released new tees, custom tie dyes, two deluxe long sleeve shirts, jogger sweatpants, and a surprise minimal Mechagodzilla front and back tee in tribute to one of the greatest showdowns in the history of kaiju cinema: Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.
“Put the monster to the metal!”
Mondo, in partnership with WaterTower Music, is proud to present Michael Giacchino’s absolutely brilliant score to Matt Reeves’ highly anticipated The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne.
“Unmask the truth.”
Shudder’s March 2022 lineup includes new Shudder original and exclusive films like Dasha Nekrasova’s The Scary of Sixty-First, and Sam Walker’s The Seed. 1st March, Shudder US puts a spotlight on the bold, visionary horror emerging from France in the twenty-first century, including essential titles from the boundary-pushing wave of films dubbed “New French Extremity”.
“Taste the darkness.”
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City brings all the original characters from the video game series (specifically Resident Evil 1 & 2), like Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Sherry Birkin, William Birkin, and many others.
“Witness the beginning of evil.”
Like the tagline, you shouldn’t take this film seriously. If you’re a horror fan who has never seen this sequel before, I would recommend it. There’s plenty of humour where you don’t expect it, great fight scenes, and it’s bonkers in a way only an independent film can be.
“The sequel you did Nazi coming…”
Shudder has announced its February 2022 lineup, including new Shudder original films like Jeremiah Kipp’s Slapface, Igor Legarreta’s All The Moons, Abel and Burlee Vang’s They Live in the Grey, and Toby Poser, John Adams, and their daughter Zelda Adams’ Hellbender. Plus new additions to Shudder’s growing library, including genre classics such as Tales from the Hood and Battle Royale.
“Growing up is hell!”
Ken, a gang leader dreaming of a quiet life with his girlfriend Noriko, and Jin, Ken’s maverick successor, who isn’t about to let yakuza kingpins tell him what to do or whom to kill. Jin’s violent individualism in a world where even outlaws follow the bosses’ orders references the doomed anti-establishment heroes of Kinji Fukasaku, but Crazy Thunder Road points toward a new style of genre filmmaking-fast-paced, quick-witted and brilliantly stylized.
“Will you go on riding or not?”
Considered to be the first found footage movie, Dean Alioto’s The McPherson Tape (1989) wasn’t legitimately released at the time due to a warehouse fire, while Jungle Trap (1990) and Run Coyote Run (1987) are two lost horror projects from director James Bryan and producer-writer-star Renee Harmon.
“You are in for a hell of a shock!”
Founded in 2009, the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) exists to preserve the legacy of genre movies, and now some of the weirdest and wildest films ever committed to celluloid have been released on Blu-ray – on the other side of the Atlantic – for the first time.
“Making movies can be MURDER!”
Shudder’s January 2022 lineup of terrifying cinema includes new Shudder original and exclusive films like Gabriel Carrer and Reese Eveneshen’s For the Sake of Vicious, Kier-La Janisse’s Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror, Edoardo Vitaletti’s The Last Thing Mary Saw, and Thomas Hamilton’s Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster.
“Nothing good this way comes.”
When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.
