Nazi zombies are back!
Check out the trailer below :
I loved the first Dead Snow, which you can find streaming on Netflix if you haven’t yet seen it. It is very exciting to see the story picking up where it left off, with a gruesome twist!
Dead Snow 2 will premiere at Sundance in January, and the rest of the world later in February.
Is anyone else excited for this one?
Or are zombies (Nazi or otherwise) becoming old hat?
Looking forward to it here.
Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1 & 2, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, is a hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi “Event Film” with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying, and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film, a revisiting of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke ‘Em High is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, and Carrie, but seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?
This is essentially Nuke Em High part 4, and they have split it into two parts, the first of which is being distributed by Anchor Bay in 2014. They have even announced a limited theatrical run for the film, beginning with a screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on January 9th, with director Lloyd Kaufman in attendance.
The full listing of theatrical screenings can be found here.
I grew up on these crazy Troma films, and am really looking forward to this one!
What do you guys think?
Sorry I have had any new posts in a while, but between the holidays, a full time job, trying to finish up a new short story, and getting absorbed in Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, I have not had a ton of time lately.
But never fear, we have big plans for Horror Homework in the coming year, so bear with me!
In the meantime, check out this quick collection of new(ish) trailers that you might (or might not) have seen yet, all here in one convenient post!
Some cool stuff to look forward to in the coming year!
First up is this insane looking trailer for Cheap Thrills, due out March 21st 2014!
Craig (Pat Healy), is an auto mechanic who loses his job. He is unable to pay his rent and after seeing the eviction sign, he goes to a bar, where he meets someone from his old high school, Vince (Ethan Embry). A rich couple, Colin and Violet (David Koechner and Sara Paxton), give them money for completing certain tasks. The tasks are simple at first, but they later become violent.
Directed by E. L. Katz (the writer of AUTOPSY), this film looks dirty, mean and violent, just the way I like them. Can’t wait for this one!
The Strange Colour Of Your Body’s Tears is up next, due to hit theaters sometime next spring. Here’s hoping for a wide U.S release.
And now for something completely different, take a look at this poster and trailer for Battle Of The Damned, featuring zombies, robots, and Dolph Lundgren. Yeah.
No release date is available right now, but keep an eye on your local redbox.
Next up is Grand Piano, due for theatrical release on
Starring Elijah Wood and John Cusack, it looks like it has potential to be tense and interesting. Find out on March 7th.
And last but not least, we got a new teaser for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, from director Matt Reeves. It looks great and “Rise” was a big surprise for me.
Looking forward to this one when it hits theaters July 11th!

Coming soon from director Jill Sixx Gevargizian is a new short film “Call Girl”.

Quite a tease, indeed!

The long-awaited official trailer for the new Godzilla film popped up online today!
Directed by Gareth Edwards, who brought us “Monsters” a few years ago, this new version of Godzilla stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, and Juliette Binoche.
Described by Legendary Pictures as “an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence“, it looks like this just jumped to the top spot for required viewing this coming summer!
Have a look :
Well, I am definitely pretty impressed. What do you guys think?
Releasing May 16, 2014!
I first saw the above poster about two years ago, and obviously it piqued my interest.
But nothing ever came of it.
This film has been sitting on a shelf somewhere all this time.
Finally, we have a trailer and a synopsis :
By day Abby Russell is a dedicated nurse, someone you wouldn’t hesitate to trust your life with. But by night her real work begins…Using her smoldering sexuality, she lures cheating men to their brutal deaths and exposes them for who they really are. When a younger nurse starts to suspect Abby’s actions and compromises her master plan, Abby must find a way to outsmart her long enough to bring the cheater you’d least expect to justice.
This film will hit theaters at last on February 7th, 2014.

When a cruise ship in the Caribbean collides with an abandoned research vessel, a deadly virus is unleashed. Passengers must find a way to survive before the flesh eating disease consumes them all.
The first Cabin Fever has a love/hate standing with most horror fans, but it is one that I always really enjoyed. That kind of gleeful insanity is hard to get away with!
The sequel, however, left a lot to be desired in my opinion.
In fact, director Ti West (who went on to direct some quality projects like “House Of The Devil” and “The Innkeepers”) reportedly was so disappointed with the final product that he asked for his name to be removed from it.
This upcoming prequel will not be the end of Cabin Fever either, as a third sequel was filmed back-to-back with this one. Cabin Fever 4 : Outbreak will reportedly tell the story of a doctor and his family who travel to a remote Caribbean island to investigate a minor flu outbreak, only to discover a vicious flesh-eating virus that threatens everyone on the island. The family is faced with responsibility to prevent a worldwide epidemic.
Both of these films are expected to be released straight-to-DVD sometime in 2014, and have no involvement from Eli Roth, the writer and director of the original.

A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: Gidi – The father of the latest victim now out for revenge, Miki – a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law, and Dror – the main suspect in the killings – a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.
A young girl goes missing in the woods. She’s soon found, very much dead and upsettingly devoid of her head, the latest victim in a string of terrible child murders plaguing the town. A disgruntled vigilante cop named Miki is absolutely certain that he knows who is responsible, and that person-of-more-than-interest is Dror, a timid and socially awkward schoolteacher. The cop pays off a pair of thugs to savagely beat the teacher in the hopes of getting a confession out of him, but that plan backfires spectacularly and a viral video of the ultimate example of decidedly un-civic police brutality tears across Israel, costing Miki his job. Now, all bets are off.
Quentin Tarantino calls Big Bad Wolves “The best film of the year”.
This film has been getting positive reviews at many festivals over the past year, and will be releasing in the UK on December 6th.
No US release date is announced yet.
Selik Manor draws in a group with a love of the gothic world. The visitors desire for history, ghosts and magic is excited inside. The themed hosts charm the guests in the haunted setting with words and tricks. Zuri is secretly psychic and becomes aware of a dark unseen presence. They must all make their choice when to leave as time ticks by.
Nice and creepy, just the way we like them…
This film is coming to us soon from UK film company Deleted Scenes Ltd.

Looks like a keeper to me. What do you guys think?
