A Trailer Introduces Us To ‘A Beginners Guide To Snuff’

Nothing funnier then a snuff film, right?

Well – The Butcher Brothers are hoping they can find a way to insert a little humor into the whole thing with their new flick A Beginners Guide To Snuff.  So, what the hell is this one all about you ask?  As always – I’ve got you covered.

From the press release:

“The Butcher Brothers – Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores – have completed their disturbing horror film, A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff. Darkly comedic, the film stars: Joey Kern (Super Troopers, Cabin Fever), Luke Edwards (Jeepers Creepers 2, The Wizard), Bree Williamson (True Detective, Haven), Brad Greenquist (Lone Ranger, Water for Elephants) and many others. The film involves shooting a fake snuff film, to make one woman famous. But, the plan goes off the rails, from the get-go. A preview of A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff and its summer release is hosted here.

The story opens as two brothers, Dresden (Joey Kern) and Dominic (Luke Edwards) enact their scheme. Together, they decide to kidnap Jennifer (Bree Williamson), in the name of infamy and to make the greatest film of all time. The kidnapping quickly goes downhill. Now, the brothers find themselves being hunted by a raging actress, with an arsenal at her disposal.

The Butcher Brothers are best known for their work on vampire thriller The Hamiltons (2006), The Violent Kind (Sundance) in 2010 and they already have their next film finished – The Night Watchmen. Their latest production, A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff, has already won several awards, including: “Best Actor,” “Best Actress,” and “Best Feature Film” at FearNYC. The film opens theatrically in June before Indican Pictures delivers this title, to horror fans, through Video-on-demand and on DVD – this July.”

The film hits VOD and DVD on July 11th!

Check out the trailer.

‘Frankenstein Created Bikers’ Gets A Red Hot NSFW Trailer

Easily one of – if not THE most eagerly anticipated indie horror film this year – ‘Frankenstein Created Bikers’ has gone and gotten itself a trailer and damn if it’s not one of the best things you’re gonna see.  Word of warning – there are boobies and blood so if you’re underage or worse yet – at work – turn away now.

Check out this extensive synopsis:

“A resurrected outlaw biker (Jett Bryant) finds himself addicted to the substance that brought him back from the grave. In order to get his daily fix, his gang is forced to do the bidding of two sadistic scientists attempting to capture a biological mutation and perform a human head transplant on kidnapped teenagers. When his disgruntled ex-girlfriend (Tristan Risk) is released from prison, she embarks on an explosive manhunt for her former lover and his strung-out pack of degenerates. With three dysfunctional bounty hunters, a rival motorcycle gang and an army of machine-gun toting strippers, it becomes a race against law-enforcement for bragging rights to the gang leader’s demise.”

Shot in 35 mm this one is going old school and from what that trailer is showing – they are doing it right.  They’ve also assembled some of the indie scenes best talent as Tristan Risk, Ellie Church and Laurence R. Harvey all star.  Also along for the ride are Jett Bryant, Madeline Brumby, Paul McComiskey, Jim Sligh, Billy Ratliff, John Collins, Shane Morton, Rob Thompson, Gia Nova, Elizabeth Davidovich, Nick Hood, Rotknee Leete, Diana Prince, and Jim Stacy.

Word has it that these bad asses will be riding into town at some point this summer.  I’ll update you with the facts as soon as they appear.  In the meantime – check out this awesome key art!

Dark Sky Films Bring Us ‘Night Of The Living Deb’ This Fall

Everyone loves a good zombie comedy right?  Right?  Of course we do and if advance word can be trusted then ‘Night of the Living Deb’ is one that needs to be high on our list.

The film recently picked up distribution and Dark Sky Films will be handling those duties here in the US.  That my friends is nothing but good!

Got quite a bit of info to throw at you – let’s start with a synopsis!

After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but she can’t remember much of what got her there. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door… into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. Now, a walk of shame becomes a fight for survival as the mismatched pair discovers that the only thing scarier than trusting someone with your life… is trusting them with your heart.”

Ready to see a little action?  Here’s the official trailer.

We have no firm US release date yet but if I had to guess – I would go with late summer, early fall. As soon as I know for sure – you will as well.  Maria Thayer, Michael Cassidy, Ray Wise, and Chris Marquette bring this one to life.

One last thing before you take off – check out the lovely one sheet!

The Asylum Is At It Again – Get Ready For ‘Zoombies’

The reigning king of the “mockbuster” – The Asylum is back to doing what they do best – having fun!  The studio behind made for video or SyFy Channel classics like ‘Snakes On A Train’,  ‘Transmoprhers’ and let’s not forget ‘Z-Nation’ are taking on the living dead but not in the way one might expect.  Horror fans I give you – ‘Zoombies’.

Marcus Anderson, Kaiwi Lyman, and Kim Nielsen all star in this sure to be instant classic.  The tale goes like this:

“When a strange virus quickly spreads through a safari park and turns all the zoo animals undead. Those left in the park must stop the creatures before they escape and zombify the whole city.”

How can this not be added to your must own list!

Great news is – we only need wait a week or so – this one hits DVD on March 1st.  I’d go lock my copy in now.
