Rifftrax Live battles Toho's MOTHRA tomorrow night!


Fans of classic Japanese monster flicks and movie riffing rejoice, for Rifftrax Live battles MOTHRA tomorrow night in theaters across the United States! (With a rebroadcast on August 23rd!) Michael J. Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy will team up to take jabs at this classic kaiju flick, which features Toho's other famous mon-star!

For the uninitiated, MOTHRA is a 1961 Japanese epic, where explorers investigate the nuked remains of Infant Island. They are startled to find that the island is actually still inhabited, and filled with numerous mutations caused by radiation poisoning. Also, the islanders, led by two tiny priestesses, worship a giant insect god named Mothra!

But when the tiny "Shobijin" are kidnapped and taken back to Japan to be exploited, Mothra hatches from an egg and makes a beeline for the Land of the Rising Sun. The larvae eventually morphs into her final insect form, and destroys everything in her path as she seeks out the "twin fairies." Will the Japanese Self-Defense Forces be able to stop MOTHRA?!

This Rifftrax Live show begins at 8:00 PM EST and will be streaming live to various movie theaters. To find out if it's playing near you, and to snag yourself tickets, CLICK HERE!


Sadly I'm missing out on this show (it sucks that they're always broadcast on Thursdays!), so if any of you Vault Dwellers attend, please let me know how it was. And most definitely share your favorite moments from the film (and your favorite jokes) in the comments below!

This September, travel to the Frozen Kingdom with a young H.P. Lovecraft!


SHOUT! FACTORY BRINGS ARCANA STUDIO'S "HOWARD LOVECRAFT AND THE FROZEN KINGDOM" TO DVD AND BLU-RAY ON SEPTEMBER 27TH!

I first reported on the production of this animated film last October, and I can't believe it's about to come out on DVD & Blu-ray! Where does the time go?! I'm a sucker for anything H.P. Lovecraft, so I'll definitely be checking this one out!

Film Synopsis: Before he becomes the famed horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, young Howard Lovecraft is a curious and imaginative boy living with his mother. But after she unwittingly gives Howard the legendary Necronomicon, he is transported to a dangerous and frozen world populated by horrifying creatures. After saving and befriending one such creature – Spot – Howard and his new friend set off on a perilous quest to save the kingdom and get Howard home. But Howard soon finds out that not everything is as it seems and not everyone is to be trusted.

H.P. Lovecraft, famed horror and fantasy writer, was once just Howard Lovecraft, a strange and lonely child. Howard was a boy of infinite imagination and boundless curiosity. His family however was not without peculiarities of their own... This fall, loyal fans and enthusiasts of Lovecraft’s literature are invited to venture into the imaginative Lovecraft universe through the new animated feature HOWARD LOVECRAFT AND THE FROZEN KINGDOM.

Written, directed and produced by Arcana Studio’s Sean Patrick O’Reilly, HOWARD LOVECRAFT AND THE FROZEN KINGDOM is the highly-anticipated movie adaption of Arcana’s popular graphic novel of the same name and features an all-star voice cast of Emmy-winner Jane Curtin (3rd Rock from the Sun), Golden Globe-winner Ron Perlman (HELLBOY, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM), Academy Awards-winner Christopher Plummer (BEGINNERS, UP), Doug Bradley (Pinhead from the HELLRAISER series), Kiefer O’Reilly (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) and Alison Wandzura (CW’s Van Helsing).

A veritable love letter to Lovecraft himself, HOWARD LOVECRAFT AND THE FROZEN KINGDOM is a fantastical movie adventure that entwines new storytelling, actual events of H.P. Lovecraft’s life, iconic elements of his writings and literary characters Cthulhu, Shoggoth, and more!

Disc Specs:
Not Rated | Color | 80 minutes | Region A
Video - 1080p Widescreen (1.78:1)
Audio - ?

Extras:
  • TBA (At least one audio commentary and making-of featurette have been confirmed.)

    HOWARD LOVECRAFT AND THE FROZEN KINGDOM hits DVD and Blu-ray on September 27th, and seems like a great way to introduce your children to the creatures and characters from the works of H.P. Lovecraft. You can order it now on AMAZON.COM or directly from SHOUT! FACTORY's website.

    "The Taint" soundtrack needs your help for a vinyl release!



    Drew Bolduc's THE TAINT is a completely insane film that pushes misogyny to violent and satirical extremes as an experimental male enhancement drug is released into various water supplies across the globe. The resulting mutation caused by said drug is a legion of woman-murdering man-sters with huge, rock-hard, goo-spewing erections! Love it or hate it, you can't deny that the soundtrack to the film is exceptional. (Especially Track #4: Super Adventure Men, and Track #5: We'll Meet Within The Shadöws öf Löve. Those are my two absolute faves!)

    And now this cult oddity's soundtrack (purchase the digital release HERE or listen to it for free on YouTube HERE) is coming to vinyl! Due to an overwhelming demand, TAINT director and composer Drew Bolduc plans on bringing the groovy sounds of his first feature film to fans of retro audio formats.

    The soundtrack is just about ready to go into production but funds are needed to get the records pressed, marketed, and shipped! Therefore on August 17th, an online crowdfunding campaign will kick-off in order to accomplish this goal! Naturally there will be rewards for donating your hard-earned cash such as the TAINT soundtrack (digital & vinyl), DVDs of Drew Bolduc's second feature film SCIENCE TEAM, THE TAINT on VHS, limited copies of the unproduced TAINT 2 screenplay, and much more!

    Now if this doesn't rock your world, and you're not up to pledging funds, at the very least head over to this project's THUNDERCLAP PAGE, and share it on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook! That way you can help spread the word, and have a social media reminder automatically sent out on August 17th to let people know that the crowdfunding campaign has begun!

    Still not sold on helping? Really? Then sample some of the music from the film below and see if it that changes your mind.
