Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno Off For Pre-Planned Sept. 5th Theatrical Release, GODDAMNIT!

So yeah, we heard some rumors, but decided they were too much of a drag to really be true. I mean, this movie had its world premiere LAST YEAR for Chrissake! Around this time!

So, at Deadline.com ran an exclusive report a week or so ago that said The Green Inferno‘s theatrical release was “postponed indefinitely”. Here is the story they ran.

We reproduced it here but do NOT claim any ownership or copyright, all the credit and the copyright belongs to Mike Fleming Jr]:

EXCLUSIVE: Green Inferno, the Eli Roth-directed film about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. I’m told this happened because financier Worldview Entertainment is balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A.

greenSince this is Roth’s first directorial outing in six years and his budget conscious fright fare almost always scares up profits, this is almost as shocking as the subject matter and also a tasty bit of dish. I’ve confirmed from Open Road that the release date is scratched, though the distributor won’t comment further, including whether there will be a later release date or if this goes straight to video. Worldview has been going through a restructure since the abrupt and largely unexplained exit of CEO Woodrow, which Deadline revealed last June.

The company, now run by Molly Conners, put a freeze on all of Woodrow’s extravagant commitments and is scrutinizing every deal that was made. Green Inferno has been caught in that snare and is not alone; there is reportedly a lawsuit by Hoyt David Morgan, who claimed he staked $3.7 million in Worldview in exchange for exec producer credit on the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu-directed Birdman, only to be stiffed on the  money and the credit.

eli rothWorldview is still squarely in operation, I’m told, with Conners determined to responsibly put the pieces back together. She will be in Venice to premiere Worldview pics Birdman and Manglehorn. It looks from here like the scrapping of Green Inferno from Open Road’s fall schedule has little to do with the quality of the film Roth directed, co-wrote and produced. Green Inferno was acquired by Open Road after it premiered in the Midnight Madness program at 2013 Toronto City to raucous response. It got a 77% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a stat that makes it seem like if you hunger for one incredibly violent nightmarish Amazon cannibal film this year, Green Inferno might be just for you. It got a similar reaction last week at the Fantasia festival.

canniaRoth is currently editing his latest film, the Keanu Reeves-starrer Knock Knock …[Roth] wouldn’t comment here, but he clearly likes his cannibal extravaganza, recently producing and releasing a mobile game for the movie.

I’m told that Worldview doesn’t intend to leave Roth high and dry, and behind the scenes talks are going on to try and figure this out. If that doesn’t rescue the wide release of this film, I imagine that someone will provide the P&A spend (it’s the first money to get refunded), or else another distributor will show an appetite and step to the plate for Roth’s cannibal fare.

[end of exclusive from Deadline.com]

OK, deep breath… count to ten…

First of all we’d just like to say: Fuck Worldview and whoever is responsible for this. There was a new DVD release Tuesday and we rented it Wednesday; they had the entire Green Inferno trailer and continued to state COMING SEPTEMBER 5th.   We relaxed (and okay, were in denial at the time). By the way, all this went down last week and we managed to miss it, sorry we couldn’t spread the word to you sooner.

THEN, Movieweb.com ran a story a couple of days later. Eli Roth himself confirmed the story via Twitter. He kept his tweet short, apologetic, but vague (we’re pretty sure all this shit with the distributor mere weeks away from the release hasn’t exactly been a picnic for him, either; he’s made it very clear the movie was a labor of love).

Screen shot 2014-08-17 at 8.26.05 AM

Here is what Brian Gallagher at Movieweb.com had to say after that bummer of a tweet:

The film, which centers on a group of college activists who find themselves hunted by a tribe of cannibals in the Amazon jungle, was initially slated for release on September 5. Former Worldview Entertainment CEO Christopher Woodrow had previously committed to providing publicity and advertising for the horror film, but, following his abrupt exit in June, the studio is now questioning that commitment. It isn’t clear if the film will get a later release date, or if it will only receive a straight-to-video release at this point.

angryFFFFFFUUUUUU---

New Worldview CEO Molly Conners has put a freeze on all of Christopher Woodrow‘s reportedly “extravagant commitments” and is going through each deal once again. The production company is also facing a lawsuit from Hoyt David Morgan, who claimed he invested $3.7 million in Worldview in exchange for an executive producer credit on Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman, although he never received credit or reimbursement.

It is believed that Worldview’s decision to pull The Green Inferno from its slate has nothing to do with the quality of the movie itself. As Eli Roth mentioned in his tweet, the filmmaker and the studio are working to resolve this matter, and we’ll keep you posted with any updates as we receive them.

And we at Horror Boom will also be keeping an eye out for updates. Hey, maybe we can all start a support group…

 

 

 

“ABCs Of Death 2” Gets a Release Date – Plus, See a Great ’26th Director’ Contest Finalist For The Letter M!

Okay! Want the good news or the bad news first?  Let’s get that less-than-positive news out of the way. You may recall an announcement in January that among the hundreds of entries for the 2013 “26th Director Contest” for the letter M this year, the winner (“M is for Masticate”) was chosen last December. Then in January 2014, we got all excited when there was an official press release that told us there would be an “ABCs of Death 1.5” that would be composed of 26 of the top entries for the contest, released in “early 2014”. Here’s the short version:

Drafthouse Films has announced that producers Ant Timpson and Tim League, in association with producer and competition organizer Ted Geoghegan, have selected 26 of the 541 entries for ABCs OF DEATH 2 (the winner was Robert Boocheck’s “M is for Masticate”), and combined them for ABCs OF DEATH 1.5. This omnibus will be available digitally early this year, and will also screen at select Alamo Drafthouse cinemas. “The production team had a real blast selecting the 26 shorts that make up ABCs OF DEATH 1.5,” says Timpson. “The hard part was only selecting 26, as the competition provided so many outstanding entries. We couldn’t be happier with the final lineup. There’s enough horror, humor, weirdness and, frankly, truly f**ked-up material to give even the most jaded fan a wakeup call from hell.”

You can read the longer version o trusty ole’ Fangoria.com that includes the titles of the shorts here. Well, as you may have noticed,early 2014 has come and gone, and we looked around all over the net but sadly could find absolutely no further mention of this release after the initial one. Other than someone else asking on a message board, “What the hell happened to ABCs of Death 1.5?” you could pretty much hear a pin drop since the January press release. We’ll try to find out. Several of them are available on You Tube, Vimeo, and the contest entry page, but we like the reveal of the title AFTER the short – in some cases, giving the cause-of-death word is even a spoiler.

Screen shot 2014-08-03 at 8.12.07 AM

OK, on to way betters news: The ABCs of Death 2 (tagline: Some People Never Learn) will be released on VOD October 2nd (a Thursday), and in select theaters on Friday, October 31st – now there’s a fun release date for you! No trailer or teaser yet, so we found something else entertaining that’ll be on The ABCs of Death 1.5 (whenever the hell THAT is- we’re thinking it’s not going to make it out before the main release, but we hope to be proven wrong).

We watched several of the “M” contest entries from last year, and as with the letter T, there’s several standouts. The one we picked to show you in this piece inexplicably didn’t make it into the top 26th, and there’s no reason why not (especially since it’s better in every way than a few entries –that we’ll be nice and keep nameless– that did make it to the top 26). We’re 99% sure that, if they’d gone by voting, and not the production team’s selections, it would have. Watch below for one of the best entries, “M is for Matchmaker” (no spoilers in the title), written and directed by Sean Tretta, with Tiffany Shepis (Nightmare man, The Violent Kind), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), and Sebastian Kunnappilly (The Frankenstein Syndrome).

We’ll bring you more “M” finalists and their entries as the countdown to October 2nd (come on, even if you live in one of the select areas, can you REALLY wait an extra month when you could watch it on VOD in the comfort of your home?) continues. We actually held a couple of winners back because they were so gruesome and graphic we almost felt guilty posting them… almost!

Hemlock Grove Season 2 – Behind The Scenes Featurette (Plus Gallery) Reveals Tons of Gory Practical Effects

“If you ever come back here again, it won’t be your tongue I rip out, it’ll be your lungs.”

We were hoping to post another breakdown of how the practical effects for another grisly werewolf transformation were done (hopefully by Greg Nicotero again), since the season 2 premiere featured another great one. Maybe Netflix will add one to their You Tube channel (we’ll keep our eyes, well, peeled) but in the meantime, there’s a great behind-the-scenes featurette that shows more gore than the red band trailer we posted before. Check it out below – this season is sick! We’re only halfway through and can confirm it might even be more twisted than Season 1…

…and of course,  we’d be remiss not to put up a screencap gallery (click on an image to enlarge, but warning, at least one of the scenes these depict made us wince and curl our toes when watching the episode):

So far, this season is less of a slow burn than season one (sticking to ten episodes was a smart idea). You can check out all ten episodes on Netflix any time, because they all premiered today.

“It’s just fucked up, is what it is!” – Olivia, Season 2 of Hemlock Grove

 

Unfortunate News For Fellow Fans Of The Award-Winning “Bloody Cuts” UK Short Horror Film Series

Well, we went to the official site for Bloody Cuts and got a sinking feeling when THIS was the first video that greeted us:

So we looked and found the Bloody Cuts creators had posted this official announcement on their blog on Wednesday the 11th. We cut and pasted it; if anyone involved with Bloody Cuts isn’t comfortable with this, please drop Horror Boom a line (or even a comment; you were incredibly polite and thanked us when we did a piece on the brilliant short “Dead Man’s Lake”) and we’ll take it down and either post something else you prepared or simply a link to the blog. Anyway, here’s the announcement that gave us the blues:

Dear fans of Bloody Cuts,

Anthony, Jonny and Ben unfortunately have to announce with very heavy hearts that we will no longer be making Bloody Cuts episodes.

All good things, must come to an end...

It’s been a tough decision, but for numerous reasons we felt that it was right for the series to end in its current format. Since the release of our eighth film “Don’t Move”, we’ve been working on other exciting projects that for one reason or another has taken us away from the Bloody Cuts series, and rather than see it die a slow death, we felt it better to end the series.

A lot of hard work has gone into getting the series it is today, but it’s the support of our viewers that has really kept it going, so we want to thank you all for following, watching, sharing and enjoying our films.

But as our YouTube channel is about to break the 1 million mark, we just wanted to remind you of some of the things Bloody Cuts has achieved:

  • We released 9 short films (including “Dare”)
  • We created one of the biggest short filmmaking competitions of its type with BCHorrorChallenge.com
  • We entered over 30 festivals worldwide
  • Well over 1.5 million views online
  • Released and sold out an entire order of limited edition Blu-rays
  • We won awards at Texas Frightmare, Bootleg and FilmSkillet film festivals
  • And much, much more…

Making Bloody Cuts has literally changed our lives. It’s been (and we don’t use this word lightly) AMAZING.

However this isn’t the last project we’ll work on, or indeed the last thing much of the team will work on together. So as new projects and films develop, we’ll still be using this website, our Facebook Page, Twitter account and YouTube channel to let you all know what’s going on. Many of the Bloody Cuts team members are also working on projects of their own, which we’ll want to share with you.

For the next few weeks bloodycuts.co.uk will remain live in its current state hosting all of our legacy content, although there will be a slight reshuffle in the not too distant future so do expect the site to take on a new spectral form.

So THANK YOU, to each and every person that has ever given their time to support Bloody Cuts. It is, and always has been, something born of collaboration and great talent.

Not many filmmakers could’ve achieved what our team has with such limited budgets and in such a short amount of time; this is nothing but a true testament to the hard work and generosity of all involved.

So we hope that you’ll all join us in raising a glass to Bloody Cuts, and to the future too.

As that era ends, another one begins – we look forward to our next filmmaking adventure and hope you’ll be able to join that with us too.

Kindest regards,

Ben, Anthony and Jonny (and the rest of the Bloody Cuts team)

(SIGH)

 

Here’s the link to read the above announcement directly on the Bloody Cuts blog, plus there’s many more links there (such as to their Facebook and Twitter pages).

The reason we were over on that page on the first place was to put the breathtaking short “Don’t Move” up as the Scariest Short Horror Film of the Week (actually, maybe the month), which we’ll still be doing. If you’re wondering what else Bloody Cuts UK-related we’ve posted since we began…

Here’s the piece on “Dead Man’s Lake” (a big BC fan favorite)

You may recall the short films that took some of the top honors in their “Who’s There” Short Horror Film Challenge… such as the Grand Prize Winner “Play Time” …and what we thought was the Scariest Horror Short of May 2014, “Lights Out”.

Oh, and this fun entry into the contest (less likely to keep you awake, but still awesome) that won Best Cinematography, “Cut”.

More news as it comes in, since the creators of Bloody Cuts are assuring everyone they have some amazing things in the works (and we believe them). Keep your eyeballs peeled here as we’ll be posting several more of their shorts (including ones related to the contest).

Screen shot 2014-06-12 at 5.42.57 AM

We’re especially going to miss the elaborately-crafted posters for each of their horror shorts, including this one for “Don’t Move”.

 

*Please note that our week was already ruined when we rolled out of bed Monday to be greeted first thing with the tragic news that Rik Mayall had suddenly passed, lest it sound like we’re trying to make anyone involved feel guilty; we were in a shitty mood before we read about Bloody Cuts ending. Plus, the DVD/Blu-ray of all the films did come out.

See Blood-Curdling New HD Trailer For Asmodexia (2014)- Horrifying Spanish Exorcism Film

We ran across this recent trailer today, only seeing the YouTube freeze-frame and the word ASMODEXIA. There’s something kind of magical about having just that extremely limited amount of information about a horror trailer (especially for a foreign film) while experiencing it for the first time. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look here first (it’s well worth your time):

OK! Want to know more about the movie? We sure did. We didn’t even have a clue what  the title Asmodexia meant. Some kind of medical condition? Disease? What?

They were locked up for days. They ended up eating rats.

 

Well, the movie is the feature-length début of director Marc Carreté.  The word “asmodexia” was made up by the director, who says in an interview with Fangoria that he “likes mixing up words to get diseases,*  and other than that was mysterious about the specific meaning. You can read the in-depth interview with Mr. Carrete here, conducted during a set visit by writer on Fangoria.com, and it’s got plenty of information (plus some creepy and grisly stills).

Screen shot 2014-05-29 at 4.21.56 AM

Screen shot 2014-05-29 at 4.21.03 AM

Here is the basic plot info, which makes us want to see it even more…

Synopsis:
Eloy de Palma is an exorcist pastor roaming the darkest corners of the country with his granddaughter, Alba. Their mission is to help those possessed by The Evil One, an infection of the soul that is spreading fast, especially among the most vulnerable members of society: children, mental patients, and drug addicts. There is also a mysterious cult following them, making it more difficult to help those in need. Each exorcism is tougher than the one before, and every battle with Evil reveals a piece of young Alba’s forgotten past – an enigma that if unconcealed could change the world as we know it.

Screen shot 2014-05-29 at 5.26.15 AM

We wish we had more to tell you about a release date, but the latest news is that in early May of this year, it was acquired by Raven Banner for international sale. We have yet to read a negative review. Now, let’s hope they sell Asmodexia very fucking fast, because we want to see this very fucking badly! We’ll keep you posted. We’re also going to be optimistic and put it on our list of ten most anticipated horror films for the second half of 2014, because waiting till 2015 to experience the movie seems impossible.

 

Calm down, Susana. There’s nobody else here…

 

Screen shot 2014-05-29 at 4.22.36 AM

 

 

*Well, not to actually GET or acquire the diseases himself, he means ‘come up with’.  It sounds weird out of context; read the interview, it’ll make more sense.

Intense Horror Thriller “Proxy” Opens 4/18 – Find Out If Can You Stomach the Brutal First Five Minutes

Deciding whether to see Zack Parker’s Proxy, but aren’t sure if you want to because it might be too violent? Allow us to help you decide by posting this clip for you to view.

We wanted to add EXTREME CONTENT WARNING to the title of the post, but it was already too long. So first, EXTREME VIOLENCE WARNING, even for Horror Boom. In fact, Mrs. Horror Boom here felt a little queasy at the ending, and I’ve never even been pregnant. I don’t recommend it if you’re pregnant, especially if you’re worried something will go wrong; same goes if your wife/partner/sibling, etc. is pregnant. As I mentioned earlier in my intro to the review Variety gave it (which was pretty positive), I do know of people who watched Inside while pregnant. If you’re one of those people then hey, watch away. I just don’t want to get yelled at for not warning you. If you’re eating something right now, you may want to set it aside while you watch. Okay?

Oh, and in case you’re wondering about the content, the clip is titled (on YouTube, anyway) as the following: “A Baby Is Beaten From a Pregnant Woman in Controversial Thriller Film ‘Proxy'”. That should weed out some of you right there. Also, over half the various comments on sites that ran the clip that I’ve read have been along the lines of that’s not art, that’s not even horror, that’s sick!  So consider yourself warned (again).

Did Zack Parker make a good movie? You can read the Variety review here, and here’s the link to Rotten Tomatoes and their page for the shocker (67% fresh as of this writing, if you were wondering) where you read many more reviews. Neither of us at Horror Boom have seen it yet (but with the reviews, we will be).

So! Proxy will be available on various VOD platforms in less than 24 hours… or, depending on when you read this, possibly right now.

Good Lord!

Good Lord!

 

 

Cringe Over This Gruesome, NSFW “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” Trailer – Now in English, Finally! Plus, Screencap Gallery

We have a theory over what the backstory is behind the guy on the …downlow… with a sudden gush of blood in his face, but it’s too gross to repeat here. Anyway, the newest trailer for the Cabin Fever prequel “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” is below!

We’re gonna take the ‘glass half full’ approach (and hopefully not jinx this) and say that what the hell, it has to be better than “Cabin Fever 2”.

Here’ the synopsis…

When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all.

Yeah, we don’t think the party is going to work out, let alone the wedding. Here’s the UK DVD cover.

Screen shot 2014-04-03 at 5.08.36 AM

By the way, closest we can get to a release date is “Summer 2014” (looks like a straight-to-DVD release, but we could be wrong).  Below is a gallery of screencaps  including (almost) all the gore we could ‘grab’ from the new trailer. Enjoy, and let’s hope this comes to VOD or DVD soon… and Unrated!

See the Nasty New ‘Penny Dreadful’ Teaser Trailer — VIDEO (EW.com)

Great promo– also pretty disgusting (in a good way, of course). Take a look by clicking on ‘View original” in the lower left– it’s worth it. Will they just hurry up and start running Penny Dreadful, already?

Alas, we’ll have to wait for Penny Dreadful to premiere May 11 at 10 p.m. (ET) on Showtime.

Hannibal Season Two Buffet! Two New Clips, Two Trailers, And Disturbing Screen Caps For You To Devour

Hannibal will begin its second season next Friday, February 28th, and we can’t wait. Last Friday, IGN dropped two new clips from the premiere, and the first one, titled “Not My Friend”, seems to pick up where the breathtaking Season One finale left off:

In the second, “The 4th Body,” Hannibal helps police look at some grisly remains:

Here’s two great, image-rich, and very unsettling full trailers for Season Two… the first one is more exposition-heavy than the other.

I’m guessing NBC runs these after the all the little kids have all gone to bed (at least I hope so)…

Here’s that gallery of screencaps from the two trailers (plenty of the grabs were taken from the sections where a series of graphic shots just flash by). Click any of the images (which I do NOT own or claim any creative credit for). Say, have you eaten yet?

“Kaiseki” (airs 2/28/14; 10-11PM); here’s the official description from the season premiere from NBC:
Will (Hugh Dancy) is determined to fight for his innocence as Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and Jack (Laurence Fishburne) try to wrap their heads around the fact he’s behind bars.

Film Review: ‘Killers’

OK, we’re not sure whether this review is an endorsement to horror/gore fans (sounds like you damn well better be into both if you plan on seeing it) or a warning. When a review describes a J-horror slasher/action movie as “utterly depraved” and “profoundly sleazy,” that’s going to get it in our watch list. On the other hand, the VERY red band trailer on Dread Central (which you can watch here on their site, there’s no You Tube link) does look sort of torture porn-y (even very ‘cinematic and sophisticated’ torture porn, as Variety’s reviewer Rob Nelson tells us). Every female in the trailer is a victim; though men are the victims of burnings and throat-slashings, the female victim’s deaths shown are more lingering and focused, with a little bit of the what the hell is wrong with me, purposely sitting through this?‘ vibe of self-disgust that certain graphic Japanese horror movies can give you. On the other hand, when a review actually tells you (in a one-word sentence) “Beware”, and is talking about the horrifying content rather than the worthlessness of sitting through the film, we’re not going to rule it out. Since the Sundance premiere on February 1st (we’re willing to guess at least a few moviegoers were heading for the exits during the brutal opening scene), North American distribution has been picked up by Well Go USA.
