Yeesh, its been One Crazy Summer! I'm still in the process of rebuilding The Vault archives after a hack attack, and it is slow going. In the end it will surely be worth it (a lot of articles and reviews are getting a much-needed tuneup) but it is grueling work. Because of that, I've sort of been lax on reporting any news (sorry!) so here's some new trailers to whet your appetites!
TRAILER #1: TURBO KID
Based upon the "T is for Turbo" short in ABCs of DEATH 2, TURBO KID is a post-apocalyptic film unlike any other. A teen (known only as "The Kid") scavenges for survival in remnants of the old world, and ends up becoming an unlikely hero. The tone of this movie is super odd: It's full of childlike innocence, yet has copious amounts of gore! It's fun, it's crazy, and you just gotta dig that synth soundtrack!
TURBO KID is currently playing in select theaters and is currently available on various VOD services! Not sure if you want to watch it? Well then peep out the trailer below!
TRAILER #2: THE FINAL GIRLS
The Horror genre has been deconstructed to the extreme in the past decade with films like CABIN IN THE WOODS, TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL, and BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON. And now it seems THE FINAL GIRLS is going to hold a spot on that list... if its good.
The film revolves around a group of friends that attend a midnight screening of a cult slasher film, only to mysteriously get sucked into the movie! They then have to fight to survive against a Jason Voorhees knock-off with the remaining characters! It actually looks quite fun, though I must disagree with a critic who called it "utterly original." This kind of thing has been done before by other films, such as STAY TUNED, MIMESIS, and LAST ACTION HERO.
Still I'm game for it! Watch the trailer and get excited for this new horror/comedy, which will get a limited theatrical release, and a full VOD release, on October 9th!
TRAILER #3: KNOCK KNOCK
A new Eli Roth flick with Keanu Reeves starring as a loving family man that makes a horrendously awful decision: To have a threesome with two whacked-out women. After booting them out, after knocking boots with them, the two psychos go on a crusade to punish Keanu for cheating on his wife.
At best, this looks like a solid rental to me. Honestly I'm more keen on seeing Eli Roth's other new film, THE GREEN INFERNO, which hits theaters on September 25th.
If you do want to see KNOCK KNOCK, its getting a release on October 9th! Check out the trailer below!
Honestly... even if Keanu dies in this movie (which he won't), it's still a win-win situation for him!
TRAILER #4: SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
Trying to capture a little of that ZOMBIELAND magic (it probably won't), this new horror/comedy features a group of social outcasts (simply known as "scouts" to avoid legal issues) battling hordes of flesh-eating undead. It looks like it could be fun, but I'm having a few doubts.
Regardless, it's hard not to get excited for zom-boobies!
Give the NSFW red band trailer below a glance, won't you? If you like what you see, then check it out in theaters on October 30th!
That's it for now, but there will be more to come as October nears! Keep checking back for more news, and feel free to visit the Vault to see how the repair work is going!
