Last Week in Horror, July 20th to 27th

Posted by Peter Hall - July 28th 2008 @ 7:49 pm

Last Week in Horror was a helluva week.  Not that anything too chest pounding happened, but it was privy to the San Diego Comic-Con, which of course means that the web was inflamed with lice like news tidbits.  But you know what?  In all the huff,  the only thing that really jazzed me was Aronofsky doing the ROBOCOP remake (!!!) – and I’m not even sure that was officially announced at the con.

It may get my film card revoked, but I won’t lie to you; Until 30 minutes ago I’d never heard of LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT.  After reading the quite epic story recounted below, I’ve got fingers crossed that this “Holy Grail of Horror” is found.

Oh, and if you’re as nostalgic for Mortal Kombat as I am, check out the Mortal Kombat vs DC demo.  Sure, MK didn’t exactly go away, but I haven’t had any interest in playing it since Sega Genesis, so seeing people speared in the chest by a guy in a yellow vest still makes me very happy.

Theatrical Trailers and Clips

  • FRIDAY THE 13TH – Very shitty quality cam of the Comic-Con footage
  • MIRRORS – Featurette on the Jaw Ripping sequence
  • QUARANTINE – Red Band trailer, I can’t even imagine how much more this gives away

    I think you need to prematurely retire the age card. Us old people are getting sick of it.

    I dunno, I liked RHPS. It irritates me that MTV is going to remake it. I’d never heard of the London After Midnight, either, Peter.

    And, I’m actually kinda excited about DCU Vs MK. I probably won’t use a lot of the MK people because I dont recognize them anymore, but hey, beating up Joker with Sub Zero sounds like fun.

    You need a “Sean’s random movie questions” where we can talk about things when I find them.

    Since I never know where to put anything. Anyways, onwards to my question!

    Have you seen Stuck yet? It’s by the guy who did Re-animator and it’s based off the crazy chick who hit a homeless man and drove home with him stuck in his windshield.

    So far I’ve heard it’s good, but I wanted to see if you’ve heard of it.

    Haven’t seen STUCK yet Sean, but I’ve heard good things as well. No R1 DVD of it out yet, but look in the right (or wrong) places and its certainly available.
