Check out the trailer for PRO WRESTLERS VS. ZOMBIES


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2240046/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Ok, when I first heard about this film, I had every intention of posting it for you all to see more as a joke than anything. But when I actually went out and watched the trailer, well....it actually looks like this could be a really fun movie!   The movie is called PRO WRESTLERS VS. ZOMBIES and it is exactly what you think it is.   Here is the official plot synopsis from the film's imdb.com page:

T  he Franchise Shane Douglas accidentally kills a wrestler in the ring. The wrestler's brother Angus seeks revenge by surrendering his soul to an ancient demon to gain the power to raise the undead. Angus then pays for a private show at an empty prison to lure Douglas and his friend Rowdy Roddy Piper into a death trap.

 The film stars some of the biggest names in Pro Wrestling history, including "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, Kurt Angle, Shane Douglas, Matt Hardy, and Rowdy Roddy Piper!   The movie looks pretty low budget, but still looks like it could be very entertaining.  Some of the gore scenes shown in the trailer look like a lot of fun!   Check out the trailer and let me know what you think!

What if.....FULL HOUSE was a horror movie?!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7m4-lSllrXk














  Ha!  If you were a fan of the TV show FULL HOUSE, you should get a kick out of what fan Jay Somsen did for a movie trailer assignment for the Seattle Film Institute.  He takes the wholesome Tanner household and turns it into what looks like a nuthouse!  It's amazing what some different music and some re-editing can do for the look of a show.  Pretty creepy!!

This reminds me of some other shows and films that have been re-edited to look like horror films!  Here are some you might want to check out:

Check out horror author Brian Moreland's newest novella, THE VAGRANTS!


  If you don't know the name Brian Moreland, you should.  He is one of the best horror writers working today.  I've had a chance to meet Mr. Moreland on a couple of occasions, once at the 2013 Texas Frightmare Weekend Horror Convention, and then again earlier this month at the same convention.  He is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.  I have mentioned his books on my blog before, and contributing writer Scott Baker did a great review of Mr. Morelands book, DEAD OF WINTER way back in 2011!  You can read that review here.  Since then, Mr. Moreland has written a lot more books, all of which are available through his website, www.brianmoreland.com.

  The newest book from Mr. Moreland is his novella called, THE VAGRANTS, which comes out in just a couple of weeks  (June 3rd).  Here is the synopsis of the story:

   Journalist Daniel Finley is determined to save the impoverished of the world. But the abandoned part of humanity has a dark side too. While living under a bridge with the homeless for six months, Daniel witnessed something terrifying. Something that nearly cost him his sanity.
   Now, two years later, he’s published a book that exposes a deadly underground cult and its charismatic leader. And Daniel fears the vagrants are after him because of it. At the same time, his father is being terrorized by vicious mobsters. As he desperately tries to help his father, Daniel gets caught up in the middle of a war between the Irish-American mafia and a deranged cult of homeless people who are preparing to shed blood on the streets of Boston.

  I don't know anything scarier than a book about a deranged cult of homeless people!  Ha!  Check out the novella June 3rd.  It will be available in Kindle, Nook, and other ebook formats.

Blu-ray Review: COUNTESS DRACULA (1971)

  
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065580/COUNTESS DRACULA
Directed by
Distributed by Synapse Films and CAV

  Thank you Synapse Films for another gorgeous release of another classic horror film.  The latest Hammer Horror film from Synapse is the great COUNTESS DRACULA starring the beautiful Ingrid Pitt.  Here is the plot synopsis from the Synapse Films website:

  The beautiful Ingrid Pitt (The Wicker Man, Where Eagles Dare) stars as Elisabeth Nádasdy, an aging Hungarian Countess who discovers she can reverse her aging by bathing in the blood of young women. While in her youthful state, the Countess falls for the handsome Lt. Imre Toth (Sandor Elès), and impersonates her own daughter to win his affections. Soon, girls in the village go missing… kidnapped and murdered by the Countess and her steward, Julie (Patience Collier) to satiate her horrifying bloodlust. Can Elisabeth live a life of deception with her grotesque lust for blood to stay eternally young, or will her ghoulish secret finally be revealed? Co-starring Nigel Green (Jason and the Argonauts, Zulu).
  Considered “one of the more underrated films from the latter days of the Hammer Films dynasty“ (Donald Guarisco, Allmovie.com), Countess Dracula is based on the real-life Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory, a woman accused of torturing and murdering more than 600 girls.

 I am huge fan of Hammer Horror films.  They had such a unique vibe to them.  I can't really explain it, but there is a certain style you can see when watching a Hammer film and I love it.  COUNTESS DRACULA was another very enjoyable Hammer film.   The movie was shot well and acted well, and I loved the story.  I have always enjoyed stories and movies about the infamous Elizabeth Bathory, and this is another one I can add to my list of enjoyable films.  Ingrid Pitt did an amazing job as the title character in this film.   She is a joy to watch on screen, and really makes this movie.   Some people will say that this film is slow, and I can see that.  It is slow at some points but even then if you are a fan of Hammer horror films, you will probably enjoy the dialog like I did.   This film won't be for everyone, but if you are a fan of Hammer films, you will definitely want to add this one to your collection!

  COUNTESS DRACULA is out now on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and contains the following special features:

*  Audio commentary with actress Ingrid Pitt, director Peter Sasdy, screenwriter Jeremy Paul and author Jonathan Sothcott
*  Immortal Countess: The Cinematic Life of Ingrid Pitt – Featurette
*  Archival Audio Interview with Ingrid Pitt
*  Still Gallery
*  Theatrical Trailer

A message from the 4H blog administrator, Zombie Hayes....


 
 I apologize for the lack of posts lately, but I am been extremely busy and have not had time to do much posting!  I used to try to keep this a daily blog, making at least one blog post per day, but I have come to the realization that trying to do that with a full time job, and a family is just not possible sometimes.  So, I have lightened up and will just do posts when I can.  I've decided to be in charge of the blog instead of the blog being in charge of me!  Hopefully, I can do at least 2-3 posts a week, but sometimes it may be more, sometimes less.
  Thanks for sticking by me and I hope you will continue to be a fan and reader of the 4H blog!

Blu-ray Review: NURSE 3D (2013)


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1913166/NURSE 3D
Directed by
Distributed by Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  I finally got around to watching NURSE 3D the other night.  I am so backed up on screeners, I am trying to review them in the order I got them, but someone should have told me how good this movie was so I could have moved it to the top of the pile!!    I had a feeling this movie was going to be good based on the trailer, but I had no clue it would be as good as it was.  Actually, using the word good does not do this film justice.  This film is great.  It's wonderful.  It's amazing!  Ok, enough of that.....here is the plot synopsis from the Lionsgate website:

Paz de la Huerta (HBO’s "Boardwalk Empire") turns up the body heat in this wickedly entertaining story of a fatal attraction. By day, nurse Abby Russell (de la Huerta) lovingly attends to the patients at All Saints Memorial Hospital; by night, Abby prowls nightclubs, luring unfaithful men into dangerous liaisons. After Danni, a young, sensitive nurse, joins the hospital staff, Abby pursues her friendship. But when the friendship turns to obsession, Danni spurns Abby, unleashing Abby’s fury and a rampage of terror.

  My one thought that kept going through my head the entire time I was watching this movie was "how has this movie not got more notoriety than it has"?  This film should be being talked about on all the horror websites and forums, but I  rarely see anything about it.  This film was one of the best films I have seen in a while.  I loved every second of it.

  First off, lets just get this out of the way right now.  I know most people will say I liked it just because lead actress Paz De La Huerta is naked in this movie...a lot.  She has the most amazing, close to perfect body you will probably ever see.  While that aspect of the film was enjoyable, she could have been covered from head to toe in layers and layers of clothing and I still would have loved this movie.  It was one of the most well written films I have seen in a while.  I haven't seen a good psychological thriller in ages, but this one is among the top.  The story is great with some awesome plot twists and turns.   There is also some pretty good gore for all your gore fans out there (like me!), although most of the gore is pretty crappy CGI.   Even so, that didn't take away from the enjoyment of this film because the gore plays a very minor part in the film as a whole.  The real substance of this film was the fatal attraction style relationship between Abby and Danni.   It's amazing the way Abby manipulates Danni and everyone else around here with her sweet, sexy demeanor. As sweet as she is on the outside, she is equally evil on the inside.  

  If you have not seen NURSE 3D, do yourself a favor and see it asap!  Everything about this movie was great to me, even the music which I admit I don't normally pay attention to in most films.  If this film has a CD soundtrack, I will be buying it for sure.   Now, if you are trying to decide whether to get the DVD which is in 2D, or the Blu-ray which is in 3D and 2D, I would go ahead and get the Blu-ray since it has both versions.  I will say though, that the 3D aspect of this film is pretty lame from what I could tell.  I have no clue why they even bothered to put this movie in 3D.  The film does not need a gimmick like that.  I watched this film in 2D and was amazed by it.  I only saw 2 or 3 scenes I could tell were made for the 3D aspect and they seemed cheesy and corny when watching it in 2D.   That being said, though, I still LOVED this movie and consider it a must have film for any horror fan.  I know this is one I will be watching again very soon!

NURSE 3D is available now on DVD and Blu-ray and contains the following special features:

*  BAD MEDICINE:  THE MAKING OF NURSE featurette
*  Director Commentary
*  Video Diaries
*  Trailers

Have you seen the GODZILLA 2014 extended trailer yet?


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0831387/?ref_=nv_sr_1
  I have to be honest.....I have never been a big GODZILLA fan. I think the old movies are just too cheaply done and too cheesy.  They are classics and nostalgic for sure, but I could just never get into them. I was excited when I heard they were making a remake back in 1998, but then we all saw how that turned out.  So this time when I heard about a new GODZILLA remake, I was not very excited at all.  In fact, I didn't even watch the trailer for the new GODZILLA until tonight!  I have to tell ya, I think this movie looks awesome!   It has the feel of more of a disaster movie than just a monster movie.  The effects look great and thankfully, this Godzilla looks more like the original Godzilla than the lizard/alligator looking creature from the 1998 remake.
  If you haven't watched the trailer yet, do yourself a favor and give it a watch.  Let me know what you think.  Are you excited about this new GODZILLA movie?

GODZILLA is set for release next Friday, May 16th.
