Chernobyl Diaries

I guess there is some controversy about making a ghost story set in the ruined city of Chernobyl, but I am honestly surprised no one thought of it yet.
I think that Oren Peli is a director to keep an eye on, he definitely has style. The right movie for him is out there. This might be it.

Looks pretty creepy, with an interesting (although slightly insensitive) new setting.
I know I am looking forward to this one.
What do you guys think?

Opens May 25th.


The Dark Knight Rises

Well well well, finally we get a trailer for Christopher Nolan’s epic conclusion to his Batman films. This trailer will be attached to the Avengers this weekend, so all you good geeks will see it by then, but for now, enjoy this first look brought to you by Horror Homework!

I, for one, cant wait for this fucking movie!
This summer looks to be a great one for all us comic/horror/movie nerds!
Ass in seat, July 20th.


New DVD Releases – May 2012

 

Madison County, releases May 8th.

This independent slasher has been compared favorably to Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wrong Turn, and The Hills Have Eyes. It was a low-budget success, that ran into some severe distribution problems, according to the director’s blog.
When the unrated cut finally releases this month, we will finally get to see what all the fuss was about.

 

Kill List, releases May 15th.

Another promising horror film from IFC that got lost in the shuffle somewhere. Although the retiring hit-man premise has been done over and over again, all reviews point to this one being a fresh and new horrific spin on the story.
A lot of anger seems to be pointed toward the ending, judging by message boards, but I will wait to read the spoilers until after I see this one.

 

Mother’s Day, releases May 8th.

Just in time for the holiday comes the latest of the remakes. This one is directed by Darren Bousman, famous for Saw 2, 3 and 4, and  the inexplicably popular Repo! The Genetic Opera.
Also, where did he dig up Rebecca DeMornay?

 

Underworld : Awakening, releases May 8th.

Um, apparently there was a new Underworld film…

 

The Theatre Bizarre, out now!

Last but not least, this brand new horror anthology brings together Douglas Buck, Tom Savini, Richard Stanley, and several other directors for the chance to shock and scare us with this new collection of short films.
This is the one I am most looking forward to!

The Road

No, it is not a remake of the post-apocalyptic film of the same name from a few years ago…

Looks pretty cool. I know I will be checking this one out!
What do you guys think?

Opens in theaters May 11th.


The Raven

This one is out this Friday!
As a big Poe fan (and John Cusack fan) I have to admit I am really looking forward to this one…
Two tickets sold, for Darth Biscuits and Headmistress Ruler this weekend.
Anyone else plan on checking this out?

Look for the full review next week right here on Horror Homework!

Here is a special treat for all of you good students!
Christopher Walken reading the original poem, “The Raven”.
Enjoy!


Lollipop Chainsaw

Lollipop Chainsaw is the stylish upcoming video game starring zombie hunter and cheerleader Juliet Starling, who fights hordes of zombies in as the attempt to take over her school and town. She carries with her the severed, yet still living, head of her boyfriend Nick, who she decapitated after he suffered a zombie bite.

James Gunn, the writer and director of Slither,  has a hand in developing the game’s story and characters. He has said that many of the people he works with in his films and other projects are also working on Lollipop Chainsaw.

I am a big fan of James Gunn’s work and many of his gross and hilarious short films on his youtube channel here. If this game has his fingerprints on it, it should definitely be worth checking out!
Releases on PS3 and Xbox on June 12, 2012.
(Just in time for my birthday…hmm.)

 


Savages

There was a time, not that long ago, that a new Oliver Stone film was something to really get excited about and look forward to.
Over the past decade he has slowed down, and lost a lot of his fans of his edgier, more stylish work. Well, it looks like we can get excited for this one!
I, for one, can’t wait to see Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro as the bad guys, fucking shit up!
Opens July 6, 2012.

A Fantastic Fear Of Everything

Who isn’t a huge fan of Simon Pegg?
After Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Spaced, he can do no wrong. Even if some of his recent stuff isn’t as great, he is always interesting and likeable. This new film looks totally weird and interesting…

Jack is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

What do you guys think?
Opens June 8, 2012


Resident Evil 6

Capcom has just released this new trailer for Resident Evil 6!!!

Wesker Jr.? What the hell?
Good to see Leon is back again, and it looks like the story is continuing to get more and more complicated.
I know I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

Releases either 11-20-2012 or 10-02-2012, not really sure which…

 

In the meantime while we are all waiting for this one, hop online on PS3 for a friendly match of Operation Raccoon City with yours truly, DarthBiscuits!

 


Lovely Molly

The latest from Eduardo Sanchez, who brought us so much aggravation ( I mean terror) with the Blair Witch all those years ago, aims to haunt us to death with Lovely Molly.

I think it looks very creepy and effective.
What do you guys think?

 

Opens May 18th.
