Terror Experiment banner
As good as the success of THE WALKING DEAD has been on TV viewing, it’s also done a lot of harm as far as direct-to-DVD releases go. Now every zombie and pseudo-zombie flick that’s been sitting on the shelves are getting their day in the sun and being released. Take THE TERROR EXPERIMENT for example. Anchor Bay’s dusting this one off from their “2010 Collection.” The film is directed by George Mendeluk and written by D. Todd Deeken and stars Judd Nelson, Jason London, and C. Thomas Howell, who I’m pretty sure has been in every direct-to-video genre flick in the last decade or so!! Here’s the press release:
Reaching into the heavens, the Federal Building is the ultimate symbol of government authority, power, and security. But for some it’s the perfect target to expose our nation’s vulnerability to attack – as well as expose potentially deadly secrets kept from its citizens. It’s only a matter of time…
Anchor Bay Entertainment begins The Terror Experiment April 12th on Blu-ray™ and DVD. Directed by George Mendeluk and featuring an all-star cast including Jason London (Out Cold, Dazed and Confused), C. Thomas Howell (E.T. The Extraterrestrial, The Hitcher, The Outsiders, Camel Spiders), Alicia Leigh Willis (“7th Heaven”, “The L Word”, “General Hospital”), Lochlyn Munro (Freddy vs. Jason, White Chicks, Scary Movie), and Alexander Mendeluk (Twilight and Twilight: New Moon) with Robert Carradine (“Lizzie McGuire,” Revenge of the Nerds franchise) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), The Terror Experiment will take viewers on a pulse-pounding journey through a towering hell above Earth and into an inferno of unstoppable thrills! SRP is $19.98 for the DVD and $24.99 for the Blu-ray™.
A terrorist sets off an explosion that rocks the Federal Building and unleashes a toxic gas throughout the ventilation system. His purpose: to expose the Government’s secret biological warfare weapon, a deadly virus that instantly attacks a person’s adrenal system, causing them to become inhumanly aggressive, with an uncontrollable urge to kill each other.
Look for this one on DVD and Blu-ray now!

Boy Eats Girl (2005)

Director: Stephen Bradley
Writer: Derek Landy
Synopsis: A boy declares his love for his girlfriend, only to die the same night. He is brought back to life by his mother as a flesh-craving zombie, who sires more teen undead while trying to control his, er, appetite for his beloved.

A typical teen "boy meets girl", "boy loses girl" "boy gets girl back" movie with a nice mix of zombie fun thrown in. I enjoyed this one a lot. Along with "Night of the Living Dorks," teen angst & zombies seem to go along pretty good.

ACTORS: The actors could act. Other than a few of the actors who little a little long in the tooth to be playing high school kids, everything was fine.

PRODUCTION: The plot was good, and didn't stray hardly at all with sub-plots involving secondary characters, unless it tied into the main storyline. Grace is working at a catholic church, cleaning and rehabbing much of the insides and catacombs in the basement levels. She finds the book by accident, and then later when she needs it, she sneaks it out of the church. The blood and gore was plentiful. People are getting killed & eaten left and right on screen for all your gratuitous pleasure. During the blood drenched finale, a character ends up driving what I will call a "tree / wood chipper on wheels" and to fight off the attacking zombie mob, she drives right into it. Many a leg and arm are sent flying as the zombies are pretty much "chewed up and spit out."

ZOMBIES:  The zombies in this flick are "Snyder Runners." They don't stalk or shamble, they just run to attack their next victim.

THE CAUSE: It was nice to see a zombie infestation resulting from a voodoo incident, instead of from outer space or some chemical or viral infection.


FINAL: Overall, this was a good fun flick. Nothing really new, other than the snake bite, is brought to the genre. This movie was described as "Shaun of the Dead" meets "American Pie." I think that is a pretty good description of this flick. There was hardly anything to really complain about other than the shortness of the movie (77 minutes), and I would recommend this movie for all to see.

RATING: 4 out of 5

Dead Heist (2007)

Dead Heist

Director: Bo Webb
Writer: Anghus Houvouras
Synopsis: In Miami, four small time thieves leaded by Ski decide to rob a bank in the small town of Maysville. The lord Hustle demands a 10% commission and sends his experienced bodyguard Ackson to help the gang in their plan. He goes to the target bank to check the security system, but Ski decides to anticipate the plan for that afternoon. They succeed in the heist, but Deputy Kate activates the alarm and one of the criminals shoots Deputy Duff. When the bank is under siege of the police force, they are attacked by weird creatures. The former government agent Hunter comes to the bank and tells that the vampire zombies had been contaminated by an experimental virus developed by the government through the subjects that have escaped from the laboratory, attacking people in the New Moon to feed themselves. The group joins force to survive to the massive attack of the creatures.

Surprisingly, this one wasn't really all that bad!

1) ACTING: For the most part, everyone was pretty good. Some of the minor characters had some problems, but I'm thinking that's why they were in minor roles and not major ones.

2) PRODUCTION VALUES: Again, it was pretty good. There were a few moments where lighting could have been better during some of the darker scenes, but overall, a good effort. The soundtrack had a few hip-hop songs, but mostly, it consisted of music that fit the scenes. People walking through an abandoned(?) building...cue the creepy, suspenseful music. Lots of blood & gore, nothing over the top, but when someone got shot or hurt or stabbed, there was a good amount of blood.

3) THE CAUSE: A government experiment gone awry.

4) ZOMBIES: I would liken these more to the "infected" of movies like 28 days / weeks later. It wasn't just that factor either, that made them different. a) they only came out at night; b) they could be killed, but only by shooting / stabbing/ destroying / etc. the heart (no head shots here!) and c) they only came out once a month during a new full moon. So, take a zombie, throw in a little vampire, some werewolf, a bit of 'Creepers Jeepers" and some infected and the result was the "zombies" in this movie. Like the infected from 28 days / weeks later, these guys travelled fast and furious. That would put them in the same category as "Snyder runners."

5) NUDITY: None.

FINAL: My main complaint, I suppose, is the same one I had with 'Gangs of the Dead' AKA 'Last Rites.' Other than the police officer that gets trapped in the bank with the bad guys, I really didn't care if these guys lived or died. They were everyday common street hoods. They were out to rob a bank and got caught up in the nightmare that was. I probably would have enjoyed this more, if this was just a regular neighborhood (or 'hood) where the majority of the characters were worth rooting for.

RATING: 3 out of 5

Canada Going A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE in Cross Country Event


TORONTO, April 25, 2012 /CNW/ - Fresh off winning the award for Best Feature Film at the Canadian Film Fest, and the Gold Remi Award for Best Dark Comedy at the Houston International Film Festival, A Little Bit Zombie has become a smash hit on the indie film festival circuit and is headed to theatres for a special weekend event across Canada on May 17-20.

A Little Bit Zombie will roll into participating Landmark Cinemas (Winnipeg, Grand Prairie, Calgary, Kamloops, Kelowna, Abbotsford, and Nanaimo), and into indie theatres coast-to-coast where it will find its way to Woodstock NB (Atlantic Cinemas), Ottawa ON (Mayfair Theatre), Campbellford ON (Aron Theatre), Toronto ON (Underground Cinema), Oakville ON (Encore Cinemas), Sudbury ON (Rainbow Cinemas), Regina, SK (Golden Mile), Saskatoon SK (Broadway Theatre), Melville SK (Melville Theatre), Edmonton AB (Metro Cinemas), Vancouver BC (Denman & Vancity Theatres), and Victoria BC (Cinecenta) with more cinemas being added. Tickets are available at theatre box offices or on

"It's awesome that audiences across the country will get a rare chance to see our movie on the big screen. Our sold out screenings at festivals have been amazing and I'm so thrilled that zombie enthusiasts are excited about the film - some even organizing their own events around the upcoming screenings!" said Casey Walker, director and producer.

A Little Bit Zombie's new twist on the romantic-comedy-zombie genre has solidified its status as a new cult classic. SoundonSight calls it "smart, well-crafted and painfully funny…singlehandedly brings Canadian cinema back to life," and Twitchfilm says the film is "…a sneaky little charmer of a movie."

A Little Bit Zombie follows the adventures of a mild-mannered HR manager who becomes infected with a virus during a weekend get-away with his fiancée, sister, and best friend. He must elude the obsessed zombie hunter hot on his trail while he attempts to fulfill his new desire for brains and avoid the wrath of his bridezilla-to-be.

The cast includes Kristopher Turner (L.A. Complex), Kristen Hager (Being Human), Shawn Roberts (Resident Evil: Afterlife), Crystal Lowe (Final Destination 3), Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary), and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen). A Little Bit Zombie was co-written by Christopher Bond ('Evil Dead: The Musical') and Trevor Martin.

Three locations will host special cast and crew Q&A events. Kristopher Turner will attend a screening in his hometown, Winnipeg; Crystal Lowe and Emilie Ullerup will participate in a Q&A following a screening in Vancouver, and Casey Walker will be at the Toronto Underground Cinema for the midnight screening on Friday May 18 with surprise special guests.

A Little Bit Zombie is a Cave Painting Pictures produced in association with Corus Entertainment's Movie Central and Astral Media's The Movie Network, and is distributed by Full Plate Distribution.

Trailer For Nazi Zombie Horror OUTPOST: BLACK SUN

It seems like we've been waiting forever on the sequel to the actually decent Outpost, and it looks like it was well worth it. Higher production values and a more elaborate script, which revolves around the bunker and the origins of the nazi zombie ez-bake oven, have churned out something I'm really looking forward to seeing. Now, how long will we have to wait for a release?

In a town ravaged by war, mysterious businessman hires an ex-marine to assemble a crack team of ex-soldiers to protect him on a dangerous journey into no-man's land. To this gang of hardened warriors, battle-worn veterans and borderline criminals killing is just a job - and one they enjoy.
Their mission - to scope out an old military bunker. It should be easy - 48 hours at the most. Lots of cash for little risk. Or so he says... Once at the outpost, the men make a horrific discovery that turns their mission on its head - the scene of a bloody and gruesome series of experiments, carried out during World War Two. Amid the carnage, they find something even more disturbing - a survivor. As war rages above ground, and a mysterious enemy emerges from the darkness below, the ex-marine and his men find themselves trapped in a claustrophobic and terrifying scenario. Their mission is no longer one of safe-guarding - it's one of survival.

*thanks to Quiet Earth for the heads up!

More zombies from a bunch of no-names but I'm digging the poster. A trailer will be forthcoming. When a group of young, sexy, party-loving friends stop for the night at a small town motel, they soon find themselves in a nightmarish chase for their lives--from what seems to be towns people turned evil! No more details at this time.

Zombies to descend on Blaise in new film

A Zombie apocalypse will be coming to Bristol if enough money can be raised by the end of the month. Enthusiasts of the undead are raising funds to pay for the production of a film which would see zombies attack the Stratford Mill on the Blaise Castle estate.

Ben James, 24 from Hanham, works in the Rohan shop on Queen's Road and is the director of the film called Blaise.

He said: "I know it's a genre that has been done to death but there is still a lot of scope you can have with it, a lot of fun and we can involve a lot of people.

"That is one of the reasons we all gravitated to it. We are all quite avid zombie film fans.

"It's really Bristol-centric. We are using Bristol actors and crew and it's all voluntary."

The film, which will start shooting on June 2 and finish just a week later, is being made on a shoestring. The plot of the 30-minute film revolves around a small group of Bristolians who survive a zombie apocalypse. The group are saved by a SWAT team and are taken to safety.

Everyone working on the film is giving their time for free but they aren't all amateurs. "We have quite a variety of people working on the film," Mr James said. "There are a lot on the make-up team who have done professional work, like Andy Chappell who has worked on things like Dr Who and Casualty."

But many of the people involved want to break into the fiercely competitive film industry.
"We all want to make it our living in one way or another. It's a competitive industry to get into. You have to make your mark and make your name," added Mr James.

But with shooting due to begin in early June, fundraising is the highest priority. Bristol City Film Council has given the film makers £3,000 and the group hopes to match that through their own fundraising.

Bristol has developed something of a reputation for attracting the undead in recent years, with the annual Bristol Zombie Walk drawing crowds from around the country to stumble through the centre of the city and feast upon the brains of Bristolians.

Mr James said the city's connection with zombies definitely played a part in them filming in the city. "That swayed us to the film in the first place, because Bristol is zombie mad, and it's obviously all Bristol people doing it," he said.

But why is the city mad about zombies? "I don't know if I'm honest," the young director said. "It's something new. There is a great big creative community in the city and it gives people a chance, in a non-professional manner, to show off what they can do. There is a friendly competition to look the most gruesome and scary.

"As far as zombies are concerned it needs to be controlled. You can't have any old zombie character turning up," the director said.

"They can get in touch and we will hopefully end up in a situation where we are turning people away. If they can guarantee that they can be there for us, sign an image release form and are happy to do it for free, they will get a credit as well."

ZOMBIE DAWN Tagged With R Rating

Eagle One Media and iFN today announced that its action horror film ZOMBIE DAWN has received an R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. In addition, a number of new photos from the film have been released showing some in front of the camera as well as some behind the scenes.

ZOMBIE DAWN, which is set to begin its US theatrical run in April, was given an R rating by the MPAA due to its “bloody violence, a rape, brief nudity and pervasive language.” In a special arrangement with theaters, cinema ticket buyers attending the Spanish language horror film shall receive a free limited edition copy of the ZOMBIE DAWN: Safehouse comic book that contains a prequel tie-in story to the feature film.

The highly praised micro budget film is set to open in Fort Worth, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Birmingham. AL; Aurora, CO the weekend of April 20th with additional theater locations to be added shortly in the coming weeks.

Film premise: In 2006 a mysterious incident at a remote mining facility unleashes a zombie horde with an appetite for human flesh. It decimates large portions of the cities and countryside. The only course of action is to rapidly enclose the infected areas and seal them off from the rest of the remaining,  living population. Now, 15 years later the tattered remains of the government and the mining corporation responsible where the initial event took place commit themselves to finding out what may have happened at the mining complex. The solution is to covertly send in a group of mercenaries led by a cynical but no-nonsense Colonel and investigative scientists into the quarantined zone to find answers.

Fans of ZOMBIE DAWN can find theater locations and dates at the official
website or Facebook page

More cinéma vérité-style undead mayhem is coming our way in the shape of Jordan L. Salkil's The Dead. Read on to find some footage and try and contain the infection. Like that could ever happen!



The Dead is a first-person zombie film created by Eye Open Pictures Entertainment in the fall of 2009. With a budget of only $500, these cats we were able to amass over 200 zombies for the movie, which was all shot in their hometown of Swanton, Ohio.
No cast or victims have been named in the making of this film.

Two groups of people (a news crew and a group of friends) document the most horrific plague this country has ever seen. Days prior to the Horizex Incident, a group of friends are celebrating one of their own's 21st birthday on October 31st, 2010. In the meantime a news report team has a lead to investigate a protesting group called P.A.S.S. in order to shut down the Horizex plant. Both groups end up finding out that there is a zombie apocalypse in their small town of Aubrey. Now the two groups must find a way to survive or end up as one of "The Dead".

Stoned Dead (2006)

Director: Ray Etheridge
Writer: Ray Etheridge
Synopsis: Two missionaries are lost, and presumed dead in the jungles of Panama. In New York, a pair of private investigators are hired to find them. Their only clue is a mysterious note with the word "Gila". But what does it mean? Is it a person?...a place? animal?...a river? The natives speak of "Gila" only in whispers. Some say that it is a place "of pure evil". Others call it "the resting place of the devil himself". The investigators seem to step back in time as they find themselves in the middle of a dense jungle filled with exotic animals, aztec ruins, and an army of walking dead.

I don't think being "stoned" would have even helped...

1) ACTING: Not bad, not incredible, but not bad. A few of the actors, I don't know if their acting was bad, or if they were having trouble making the dialogue seem convincing.

2) PRODUCTION: Again, not bad, but I felt that there was almost TOO much stock footage in this film when the investigators were in Panama. Yes, I agree Panama is a pretty place with lots of nice scenery, but I don't really wanna see it endlessly in a zombie film. Minimal blood and gore. Editing was kinda rough, as in a few scenes, a character takes 12 minutes to get his 30 second point across. I know that this info was relevant to the movie, but it just seemed to take FOREVER to get to it. The soundtrack was okay.

3) ZOMBIES: These zombies were different. With minimal make-up, they looked like everyone else, but they may have had a bullet wound or a knife wound. And the majority of them wore brown monk robes. They were very subdued and pretty much were used as hired hands. Occasionally, they would act like a "real" zombie.

4) THE CAUSE: Voodoo / Black magic.

5) NUDITY: None.

FINAL: I had high hopes when this one first started with the voodoo rituals and all, but the "different" zombies and the editing really made this one a tough movie to get through. Even during the action scenes, I found myself bored. While I did find the purpose of the zombies to be different, it was too little, too late to save this one for me. I don't think this movie was horrible, but the budgetary restrictions, and the editing really caused this movie to seem worse than it was. The storyline was a good idea, just badly executed.

RATING: 2 out of 5
