Horror – round 3 Apple Trailers style

leave a comment »

The secret stash of horror trailers, perfect for a rainy day or quite moment at the office. I must admit I spend a little too much time surfing Apple Trailers – but its just so hard not to. You can check out all kinds of gems on there, and sure even though you cant embed the trailers into a blog post like you can say with youtube:

Compare the trailer for Diary of the Dead that is on Apple Trailers to the one I embedded into this post – its not even close. Speaking of high quality if you want more high quality horror videos make sure to check out ‘The Horror!’ film contest currently running on Super U. We’re getting new entries all the time and its shaping up to be quite the contest.

The Horror!

leave a comment »

Continuing with the October horror theme I decided to discuss a mainstream horror movie I’m actually quite excited about. If you have read this blog for any length of time you’re probably well aware I have a slight bias towards indie films when compared to major studio motion pictures. Well although this is slightly true, it does not mean I do not like major studio films. For example, opening this Friday is Quarantine.

Trailer Two

This film definitely has a Cloverfield, meets Saw II, meets 30 Days Of Night feel. Sometimes when you try to mix up a couple hits and a miss in a blender like that it comes out all wrong. However every now and then it turns out great and I think this is going to be one of those cases. That said keep in mind what this film is not – it is not a instant classic or a genre bender like Let The Right One In (That I saw at VIFF and it was everything I expected). It is a popcorn flick through and through, and there is nothing wrong with that. Make sure to check out Quarantine this Friday, and make sure to check out Super U‘s ‘The Horror!’ contest that opened earlier this week for all your quick fix horror needs.

October – a month of horror

leave a comment »

Its now October and thus begins the month of horror around my house. I’ve always loved horror movies, and recall watching every Friday The 13th back to back one halloween. This October seems to have the ball rolling with selections like Splinter, Shiver, and a film that received a third screening at VIFF because it was received so well – Let The Right One In. Of these Let The Right One In in is without question the best, I can say that confidently having only seen it and not the other two. The reason Let The Right One In is such a genre bending film that it will cross over to the mainstream and not just have the label of another horror film.

Speaking of horror films, Super U has just opened its The Horror! film contest that will run through the month of October. There already a number of great submissions so make sure to go check them out and vote on your favorite. Also if you’re a filmmaker and have a horror classic waiting in the wings then make sure to submit an entry as they will be accepted until October 26th!
