Egads! My inbox has been filling up with press releases lately, so in an effort to pare things down, it's time for The News Vault's first Trailer Round-Up of 2016! Most of the trailers you are about to view are for low-budget indie flicks, with one very special exception...
TRAILER #1: 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE
While everyone's been watching the hell out of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (which is closing in on a whopping two billion dollars worldwide), director JJ Abrams was secretly creating a new film based in his CLOVERFIELD universe. Imagine the shock and awe caused by the teaser which just dropped onto the web yesterday!
The film is a "blood relative" of CLOVERFIELD (whatever that means), and features John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher Jr. Apparently Winstead's character was rescued and brought into a fallout shelter by Goodman, and he won't let her out because of a "chemical attack" that rendered the surface world uninhabitable. Naturally it seems like she wants out, and struggles to escape, only to come to a shocking revelation.
I liked the concept of Abrams' CLOVERFIELD, so I'm kind of stoked for this film, which hits theaters in less than two months on March 11th!
TRAILER #2: BUBBA THE REDNECK WEREWOLF
Based off of a comic book character that was introduced to the masses 20 years ago, BUBBA THE REDNECK WEREWOLF is the tale of a Florida dogcatcher who becomes a lycanthropic hero after catching the "wrong dog." Honestly I don't know a whole heck of a lot about this character, but I am SO on board for this. A cigar chomping, chicken wing devouring, beer guzzling, werewolf that fights evil? AND HE HAS A THEME SONG?! Sign me up! (Currently the release date has yet to be announced, but I'll sure to post an update when I know more!)
TRAILER #3: BUNNI
Coming from Wild Eye Releasing in March, BUNNI is a new slasher flick that has a group of teens venturing into an abandoned factory, only to be viciously assailed by a murderous playboy bunny. Though it was only shot on a budget of about $2,000, it looks competently made, and should be a rather painless way to spend an hour. Give the trailer a look below! (Pre-order HERE.)
TRAILER #4: SERIAL KALLER
This title is coming out on DVD January 26th, courtesy of Wild Eye Releasing. Featuring genre vets Debbie Rochon and Suzi Lorraine, this film focuses on a trio of models trapped within their recording studio by a crazed fan that they insulted live on the air. To survive, they must band together to face their would-be killer, or somehow find a way out. Peep out the trailer below! (Pre-order HERE.)
TRAILER #5: SURVIVAL KNIFE
Due out on January 26th from (you guessed it!) Wild Eye Releasing! In SURVIVAL KNIFE the lone survivor of a serial murderer tries to recover both physically and mentally from her ordeal. However, she begins to fear that the trauma she has suffered has awakened something dark within her. Has the killer returned? Is she suffering from a mental breakdown? Or, has she secretly changed into the very thing she fears most?! Watch SURVIVAL KNIFE to find out! But before that, watch the trailer! (Pre-order HERE.)
