See The New Red Band Trailer For V/H/S Viral Here (Possible Spoiler Alert)!

The reason we use “spoiler alert” in the title is that we’re pretty sure most of the best moments from the latest flick in the V/H/S franchise are in this trailer. At least three big jump scares/shockers are given away. Someone gets hit by a bus very suddenly in the middle of a sentence, just out of the blue. Do you know how effective that bit it when you’re not expecting it?*

Both previous red band trailers for the first two installments gave away maybe one or two moments, but saved the best, most memorable moments. Now, the reason this trailer for V/H/S Viral concerns us here at Horror Boom as far as spoiling all the best moments is that, frankly, the reviews haven’t been that enthusiastic. The word we hear most to describe the movie from paid reviewers and casual message-board users is “disappointing”. The other complaint is there’s only three stories and the framing story shoots itself in the foot by trying too hard to tie the stories together and ends up confusing the viewer by being too self-consciously non-linear.

Yes, one ticket for" V/H/S Viral", please!

Yes, one ticket for” V/H/S Viral”, please!

So, there’s a good chance you could watch this Red Band trailer, get your anticipation all cranked up, then see the movie and think, Man, I wish they hadn’t put so much in the fucking trailer.  Who knows, though? There could be a ton of great stuff they held back.

Having said all that, hey, check out the goodies below! Other than the possible spoilers, we got pumped up enough for the movie to curse out loud when we saw the release had been bumped from this month to the end of October, because now we want this movie in our face ASAP!

Here’s the latest synopsis:

After watching on the news that an out-of-control ice cream truck is being chased by the police around the upper LA area, killing people and wrecking havoc among the way, a group of teens hell-bent on capturing the next viral video set out to chase the van. Things go from bad to worse when the content inside the van is revealed to be several tapes with bizarre stories, including that of a deranged illusionist who, after obtaining a demon-powered cloak, sets out on a killing spree; a garage scientist that manages to build a machine and open the door to a parallel world, where he and his double find out that their worlds are dangerously different; and the story of teenage skaters who unleash hordes of demonic foes after desecrating a ritual site in Tijuana.

We heard that last segment is the best. V/H/S Viral will be available on VOD October 23rd, followed by a limited theatrical run beginning on November 21st!

*The Statute of Limitations for spoilers on Final Destination (the original) have run out, but someone spoiled the bus hit in that movie for me. While everyone else in the theater got the top of their heads blown off (metaphorically of course) I appreciated it, but regretted overhearing someone’s LOUD conversation who was leaving the theater and prancing by the by the ticket-holder’s line, unaware anyone else but him and the friend he was relating basically all the shockers and reveals (including the train-track death) to existed. In the ads for Final Destination 4 (which fans agree was the weakest in the series), they ruined a bus-hit in the tagger for the trailer in the 15-second TV spot, for Chrissake.


“As Above, So Below” – Gallery of Screencaps From Latest Red Band Trailer

Okay, some of these are a little blurry, but the way parts are shown, they purposely make the image look bad. Plenty of the red stuff, though! Click on any image to enlarge. Horror Boom does not own the rights in any ay, shape, or form of these images from As Above, So Below.

Haven’t seen the red band, extended trailer yet? Here’s the piece where we posted it.


Extended, RED BAND Trailer For ‘As Above, So Below’ Has Bloody New Footage (Possible Spoilers)

We say “possible spoilers” because this extra-long, final trailer has so much action (not to mention blood) that we are actually kind of concerned–especially because we watched it– that they don’t hold much back for the actual movie. Since the trailer is not on You Tube as of this writing, we have a link to it on Yahoo! Movies. You have been warned… oh, and it made us want to drive directly to the nearest movie theater showing it and see it ASAP. Consider yourself warned–watch at your own risk!

So! Does it make you want to bolt out and catch the movie right away, or are you concerned there’s too many scares given away in the trailer? We haven’t dug deeply to ask someone if this new trailer kinda shoots As Above, So Below ‘s load, but we will find out and report back to you. Oh, and screencaps are coming!

I'm pretty sure you couldn't see in the green band trailer that she was holding what appears to be a dead infant...

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!

Highly NSFW Red Band Trailer For Italian-Style Gorefest Bombshell Bloodbath – Must See!

I don’t even know what I can say about this trailer before you watch it. Well, maybe I can narrow the intended demographic down a little.
Did you seek out VHS copies of Fulci movies in the 80s (or 90s)? Would you rent something just because you heard it was gory as hell (and the movie wasn’t a stinker) and that the aforementioned gore was done with practical effects, even if one of them is slightly cheesy (see featured image)? Does a creatively titled movie (instead of something like The Darkening or The Smith Project*) get your hopes up or at least have you mentally giving the film-makers some credit? Does watching a contemporary movie where the soundtrack sounds like it was performed by Goblin take you back and give you a big, nostalgic smile? I’m not saying you had to grow up in the 80s horror boom to enjoy this trailer – I’m saying it sure as hell doesn’t hurt. When I was surfing around Dread Central earlier in the month, this caught my eye (speaking of Fulci) and I don’t even know what the hell the movie was about. I think either zombies or bringing the dead back to life are involved. OK, let’s see the trailer (which features some top-notch practical FX) first…

Here’s a link to the official site.  So far it has the trailer, a broken link to merchandise, and this official synopsis: Bombshell Bloodbath concerns the daughter of a brilliant scientist who is exposed to her father’s experimental treatments designed to re-animate his wife. The movie follows her as her brain collapses and she becomes a zombie.

OK, we’ll go on that.

Screen shot 2014-02-21 at 8.15.08 AM

As far as a release date, we’re sill looking. It just so happens, though, that there was a premiere tonight (technically yesterday, but on the 21st, anyway) in Greensboro. The page for the event also gives this info, which sure doesn’t hurt:

Writer/Director Brett Mullen’s new Italian Style Zombie Splatter film “Bombshell Bloodbath”, is Influenced by works of Lucio Fulci (Zombi 2) and Umberto Lenzi (Nightmare City), “Bombshell Bloodbath” resonates Fabio Frizzi styled tracks from Kansas City artist Matt Hill (UMBERTO) and boatloads of gore by Joh Harp FX.

It also includes this poster (though there are others, I’m guessing this is close to the tone of the movie):

Screen shot 2014-02-21 at 8.32.41 AM

We’ll keep our eyeballs peeled for more release info. If they’re showing it, we definitely know they’ve finished the movie. Check back for details!


*Yeah, I made those up.  Maybe there is a movie with that first title in it, though. Plus for some reason italics stopped working completely with my theme last month, hopefully WordPress will correct it soon, because it makes the staff at Horror Boom look mighty stupid.

‘Bad Milo!’: Red-band trailer for butt-demon movie promises ‘pain like you’ve never felt’

Wow, some series indie cred among the actors here: Stephen Root, Peter Stormare, and Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer, Party Down, Zombies of Mass Destruction) are just a few of the talented character actors involved. And there’s also Bad Milo! himself! Awww, isn’t he cute? Well, I guess that depends on your,  er, position point of view. The horror-comedy will pop out on VOD August 29th, and so far, we’ve heard nothing but good things. Plus, as the tagline says, He’s Coming Out Whether You Like It Or Not.

Have a Happy (Slightly Belated) Valentine’s Day With This Rare UK “Bride of Re-animator” Trailer!

Dan Cain: She’s alive!
Gloria: Alive.

Screen shot 2013-02-16 at 2.56.32 AM

If you’re on the fence about picking up a copy of the movie, GO FOR IT. There’s a commentary with Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott that’s one of the funniest I’ve ever heard. Plus, the unrated version is amazingly gory… not to mention the original beginning, which takes place right (and I mean RIGHT) after the first one left off. Why it was deleted, I’ll never understand. (“Hill didn’t kill me… he didn’t have the guts.“)*

But I’ll review the DVD another day. For now, enjoy this UK trailer for Bride of Re-animator  (1990)!

Dr. Herbert West: Blasphemy? Before what? God? A God repulsed by the miserable humanity He created in His own image? I will not be shackled by the failures of your God. The only blasphemy is to wallow in insignificance. I have taken refuse of your God’s failures and I have triumphed. There! THERE is my creation!

*Fuck, yeah, motherfucker!

Think the Teaser For THE EVIL DEAD Re-boot Was Sick? ‘Till You Watch The NEW Full-Length NSFW Red Band Trailer Here, You Ain’t Seen NOTHIN’ Yet! (Disturbing Image Warning)

Hmm, the above image looks familiar…

Screen shot 2013-01-05 at 2.01.51 AM

But THAT’S definitely new…

The article we very recently re-blogged was an in-depth analysis for THIS nasty, wicked, sick new full-length red band trailer. We’re worried this trailer contains ALL the gore in the movie, because we don’t know how they can top plenty of what is seen here. Shit, we don’t know how they’ll even get away with it. What we meant to do was read the piece, re-blog it, then watch the trailer at the very end of the piece after writing something enthusiastic yet graceful. What we should have done was follow that plan. What we did instead  was get two pages (tops) into the 12-page piece, then what little willpower and professionalism we began with suddenly went crashing out through the window all at once, as the only thought barging into our brains screamed ENOUGH WAITING, FUCK THAT! WATCH IT NOW! NOW!  and we did so immediately.

Jesus, dude!

Jesus CHRIST, you guys!

I don’t know how this movie is going to get away with an R-Rating, even this red band trailer had us stunned, wincing, and (rarer yet), momentarily speechless.  Just try watching through to the end without wincing and protectively grabbing your mouth/jaw. We still can’t do it! So put down anything you’re eating or drinking* (even water, who knows, you could do a spit-take) and watch this full-length, gruesome, filthy, WONDERFUL trailer below (in HD) now! We won’t spoil the end… until after the jump.

Screen shot 2013-01-05 at 1.01.00 AM

When the first red band “teaser” trailer (with a little more conversation and a little less action) was released and we posted it in Fall 2012, we made a huge-ass collection of screen caps for a slideshow to post later. Then ADD kicked in (maybe that was about the same time they released the first five minutes and the new opening credits for American Horror Story Asylum) and it didn’t happen.

Screen shot 2013-01-05 at 1.59.51 AM

Oh, did we say grabbing our JAW? We forgot to mention our EYE. Actually, not 100% sure I want to know what the story behind this screen grab from the full-length trailer even IS.

Well, we just started taking screen-shots of this one, so look for a nasty slide show coming up (though probably not before the finale of American Horror Story Asylum at the end of January, that’s pretty time-intensive)

Screen shot 2013-01-05 at 1.57.11 AM

“Okay, I am fucking drawing a line in the sand here, DO NOT READ THAT!”

The Evil Dead  opens in April of 2013!

*Especially if it’s warm and red, you’ll know the footage we mean when you see it.

Grindhouse (2007) and Horror Boom Wish You A Happy Thanksgiving With This NSFW Trailer!

Grindhouse (film)

Grindhouse (film) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

So, what are you thankful for this holiday?

I know one thing I’m going to be thankful for the rest of my life: that five years ago, we got to see Grindhouse opening night, in the biggest single-screen theater in Seattle, with one of the coolest, most fun audiences I’ve had the pleasure be part of to watch a movie with my entire life.

When this Eli Roth-directed trailer for a film that doesn’t exist came on between Planet Terror  and Deathproof,  we all HOWLED through the entire thing (one of many highlights of the evening). I’d already seen the “trailer” on the Grindhouse website, so I knew the trampoline scene was coming, but it still got a loud, “HOAH!” out of me –and for once, the rest of the theater drowned me out (it’s a rare occasion that I wish would happen more often). Roth said he had plans to make the movie, but so far, only Robert Rodruiguez delivered on his promise to make his trailer, Machete,  into a feature-length film. There really weren’t any leftovers …but this trailer will definitely bring on the stuffing.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!


All-New NSFW Red Band Trailer For Upcoming “The ABCs of Death” (2012) Is Bloody, Sick Fun! (HD)

Oh, and if you have been eagerly anticipating the movie like I have, and keeping an eye out of reviews and news alerts, see if you can guess which clip is from the Xavier Gens segment “X is for XXL”, which almost every   review I’ve read pointed out as one of the most memorable and gruesome, in which a woman unhappy with her plus-size figure decides to do something about it …all at once.


“Warning! Contains Graphic Violence, Nudity, Graphic Content, Not Appropriate For Anyone Under”-YOU’RE ON! You had me at “26 Directors – 26 Ways To Die,”  ABCs of Death Red Band Trailer. I’ve been psyched for this since July. Finally, the trailer for the film is here (though I loved the one composed of contest entries for the letter T, and am still posting my Top 20 Picks). The gloriously gory claymation horror short “T Is For Toilet” from Lee Hardcastle (which was the winner), “T is for Temptation,” and “T is for Table” are still the ones I really wish could be included in the feature film too,  as they hold up to multiple viewing and still make me shake my head and smile. For some reason “T is for Table” actually still frightens me, even though I was also practically jumping up and down the first time I saw it, it was so perfect. The short even has a little bit of a Final Destination  vibe to it; though I can’t really articulate intelligently why with all this over-the-counter cold medicine in me, I hope to later.

Before I post the trailer, let me just point out that I wanted to also put RED BAND TRAILER OF THE MONTH! in the title, but it wouldn’t fit. FUCK YEAH, MOTHERFUCKER! would have done it too (in all caps, with multiple exclamation points) but some of my relatives are just now checking out Horror Boom for the first time, and they wouldn’t be mad, but they’d be disappointed in me (which as anyone who has ever heard this from a parent knows, is much worse). You have to admit, that’s a great tagline for something that you have to be a legal adult to go see, where you already know what you’re getting is sick. The ABCs of Death: Fuck Yeah, Motherfucker.*

Oh, and if you have been early anticipating the movie like I have, and keep an eye out of reviews and news alerts, see if you can guess which clip is from the French horror director Xavier Gens “X is for XXL”, which almost every   review I’ve read pointed out as one of the most memorable and gruesome, in which a woman unhappy with her plus-size decides to do something about it …all at once. Hint: See featured photo.

OK, I wanted to get this up ASAP. More later, including some really NSFW official promo stills Magnet (the film’s distributor) has released to the press.

Oh, I have another great tagline that’d  fit and put asses in seats. The ABCs of Death: It’s Just So Wrong.

*yeah, I’ve seen 21 Jump Street  with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, that’s where I got it. Did you know  there’s a rumor (that in probability is true, I just haven’t verified it yet, I saw it on The Hollywood Reporter in June) that Aaron Paul is going to be in the sequel? I am so there.
