I don’t think I have to tell you about Tucker & Dale vs Evil, I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz surrounding this hilarious take on the backwoods/hillbilly horror subgenre. Well now you can finally watch it, as Magnet releases it today On Demand. A limited (hopefully not TOO limited) theatrical run will follow beginning September 30th, but honestly, who wants to wait another month? Not you, trust me, Tucker & Dale is one of the funniest films I’ve seen in a long time, and also one of the most fun. Unlike many spoofs, or horror comedies Tucker & Dale really feels like it is cut from the same cloth as the films that it is poking fun at. Check out the clip below, grab yourself a six-pack of PBR and rent Tucker & Dale NOW!!!
It’s been almost two years since I first reviewed Evil Things and this past week it finally saw the DVD release it deserves, via Inception Media Group. I received an email from director Dominic Perez asking to post the new trailer for the film, and I’m most happy to oblige. If you haven’t checked out Evil Things yet, I definitely suggest doing so. It’s a spooky piece of POV suspense that will stick with you for a while. Check out the trailer below.
Another indie film that I loved and reviewed way back when just got its official release last month as well. Drive In Horrorshow is a Creepshow style anthology that will bring you back to an era of both film making and watching that is all but disappeared.
Alright, it’s time to announce the winners of our latest contest! This morning two names were picked at random out of a scummy baseball hat by my son.

And the winners are… (lights dim, drums roll, crowds hush) … Fnxtdd and Jeanette Jackson! Congrats, I’ll be emailing you for your mailing addresses shortly. Oh, and to make things fun I won’t be telling you guys which of the films you’ll be getting. Surprises are fun, right? Thanks to everyone who entered, and to Shade at Synapse for supplying us with the DVDs.
totally unrelated to post... but sand people are fun
Oh shit! Synapse has done it again! This time with ’80′s flamethrower fueled revenge flick The Exterminator, coming to Blu-Ray for the first time on September 13th! I personally haven’t seen The Exterminator in years and years. In fact the last time I saw it was either on VHS or on Joe Bob Brigg’s Drive In Theatre, so that was a LONG time ago! Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about this one. If you’re not familiar with this particular piece of ’80s greatness, check out the original theatrical trailer below.
Christopher George, Robert Ginty, and Samantha Eggar star in THE EXTERMINATOR, James Glickenhaus’ explosive story of Vietnam vet John Eastland (Ginty), a man who launches a bloody vendetta against the New York underworld when his best friend is brutally beaten by a vicious street gang. Eastland becomes a vigilante hero to the public, but to police The Exterminator is a psychopath capable of dangerously undermining an entire government administration.
Synapse Films is proud to present
THE EXTERMINATOR in its more violent and gory Director’s Cut, lovingly restored in high-definition from original vault materials. One of the most cold-blooded and controversial revenge films
ever made, this is “a sick example of the almost unbelievable descent into gruesome savagery in American movies.” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)
