Rainbow Man

2 Dec

During my most recent perusal of the interwebs, I found an article about “Rainbow Man” over on Neatorama.

I’m not quite so sure they need to make a full length movie for it (because, wow, it’d be super bad, and even I’m not sure I could endure an hour and a half of it) – however, the trailer in genius and it definitely made me laugh so I thought it’d be worth sharing with you guys.

(Hopefully) Coming Soon – Drop Bears!

13 Apr

People, I bring you exciting news that a kickstarter campaign is currently running to get funding for a film about killer koala bears.

Yes, you read that right.

It’s called “Drop bears”. As you can see, the trailer shows a bunch of er…cuddly toys being thrown on hammy actors and Monty Python-style OTT sprays of blood – always a good start in my opinion! I’m not entirely sure we need an entire feature-length film of this, but then again, did we really need one about a tornado filled with sharks?

Admittedly, we might not be seeing it, as it seems unlikely that they’ll reach their target at this stage – the campaign is sitting at around 6.5k of 90k and has just 12 days to go – but you never know!

And there was much rejoicing!

2 Apr

At a recent Horror magazine festival (Horrorhound Weekend), Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine let slip that there will be a sequel to everyone’s favourite creepy-cabin-in-the-woods horror spoof – Tucker and Dale Vs Evil (read our review here).

The first film has attained cult status and frankly, I’ve never met a geek who didn’t love it.  While there is that ever-present worry that a sequel might fail to meet up to the standards of the original – which is highlighted by the actors themselves in the discussion panel (see the video) – I’m fairly confident that they’ll ace this one.  I can’t wait!

Bane Returns – in cat form

30 Mar

There’s not much that’s more evil than a scorned cat.  Except perhaps, Peanut aka. BaneCat…

Yes, internet, there is now a series being made where some guy (known as Bl00dBlitz on youtube) dresses his cat up in a Bane costume for cute evil-doings.  Quite how he will continue to get his cat to wear that costume remains a mystery, but it’s entertaining anyway.
