Full Moon was infamous for making cheaper versions of blockbuster films for the direct-to-video market in the 90s. They have since moved on to Killer Bongs and Killer Cookies, leaving the market open for low budget Hollywood knockoffs. The Asylum has since filled the void releasing such classics as Titanic 2, Almighty Thor and Nazis at the Center of the Earth.
The Asylum’s latest film Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies is set for a May 22 release. That’s exactly one month before Seth Grahame-Smith’s highly anticipated Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is set to hit theaters.
V/H/S premiered at the Sundance Film Festival about a week and a half ago, and it seems to have generated quite a buzz. Then again, that might just be with the people I follow on twitter, several of whom are actually the makers of the film. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve been hearing all about the disaster that occurred during the screenings and the sale of this low budget horror film to Magnolia. And frankly, the whole thing has me captivated.
V/H/S is an anthology horror film about a group of criminals who break into a house and accidentally uncover a trove of horrifying video tapes, all containing documentation of snuff like violence and bizarre supernatural occurrences.
After over a decade long hiatus, the Flying Circus is back. Most of the remaining members of the influential troupe are reuniting for Absolutely Anything, a CGI-live action hybrid sci-fi adventure film, directed by their very own Terry Jones. Jones is one of the two Monty Python members who frequently took the director’s chair; the other being, of course, the beloved Terry Gilliam. Jones previously has had directorial duties on all three Flying Circus features: Monty Python and the Holy Grail alongside Terry Gilliam, Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life.
