When Horror Came to Shochiku DVD (Criterion Eclipse Series 37) (NTSC Region 1)
Following years of a certain radioactive rubber beast’s domination of the box office, many Japanese studios tried to replicate the formula with their own brands of monster movies. One of the most fascinating dives into that fiendish deep end was the short-lived one from Shochiku, a studio better known for its elegant dramas by the likes of Kenji Mizoguchi and Yasujiro Ozu. In 1967 and 1968, the company created four certifiably batty, low-budget fantasies, tales haunted by watery ghosts, plagued by angry insects, and stalked by aliens—including one in the form of a giant chicken-lizard. Shochiku’s outrageous and oozy horror period shows a studio leaping into the unknown, even if only for one brief, bloody moment.

Next ShowExhumed Films presents a Fulci Double Feature -Saturday Dec 15, 2012 $15 – International House
Doors at 7:30 pm, Show at 8:00pm $15
ONLINE TICKETS AVAILABLEHERE
http://www.ticketfly.com/event/181907/Saturday Dec 15, 2012 $15If you are tired of the same old Fulci films, join us for two less known, but amazing, non-horror films, from the Godfather of Gore.

Conquest (1983, 35mm Fulci)
Fulci’s attempt to cash in on the popularity of the 80’s Sword and Sorcery craze is exactly what you would expect – a gore and boob extravaganza complete with crazy monsters, a half naked villain, and a nearly non-existent plot held together by the aforementioned nonsense! An Exhumed favorite and a film that we have been trying to show since Day One!

Brute and the Beast (1966, 35mm Fulci – aka Massacre Time)
NOTHING BETWEEN THEM but HATE – for EACH OTHER!
Franco Nero returns home to find that the entire town and even his own ranch is now run by a psychotic outlaw and his son. Now it is up to Nero and Hilton to take back the town the only way you can in the old west. Starring Franco Nero, George Hilton and Nino Castelnuovo Directed by Lucio Fulci and written by the great Fernando Di Leo

The Reunion of All Reunions

Posted in Comic on 06/29/2012 by shaundaniels78

Review by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

Angel and Faith Issue 11

Written by Christos Gage, Art by Rebekah Isaacs, Colors by Dan Jackson, Letters by Richard Starkings and Jimmy Betancourt, Covers by Steve Morris and Rebekah Isaacs, Executive Producer Joss “My Master” Whedon and Published by Dark Horse Comics. Retail Price $2.99

When publisher IDW announced an Angel comic book a few years back, there was much rejoicing followed by bittersweetness.  On the one hand, a series in the vein of Buffy at Dark Horse Comics would be brilliant while on the other hand, it would be within the Buffy universe but with little to no crossover.  The two television series were like this with the rare crossover episode but this is the comics.  Flashforward to the present and both Buffy and Angel are at Dark Horse and the crossovers have commenced.  First, we have the original adorkable one, the mistress of Wiccan arts in Willow who is kicking off a new and possible world-altering story arc.

1…2…3…It’s Fantasy Double Feature 3

Posted in Comic News on 06/28/2012 by shaundaniels78

Review by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

Fantasy Double Feature issue 3 Published by Four Star Studios. Digital Price $.99

Gear Monkey Written by Aubrey Sitterson and Art by Nate Lovett

Mythic Written by Phil Hester, Art by Brent Schoonover, Colors by Mark Englert, Letters by Crank! and Created by Phil Hester & Christopher Jones

Fantasy is often times subjected to a medieval setting thus when a story (or stories) turns the genre on its ear and plays with the time and/or tech, it breathes the tried and true genre of fantasy much needed fresh air.  Issue 3 of Fantasy Double Feature pulls it off in its two stories, taking the concepts and essences of what makes a fantasy story, well, fantasy with a different look to boot.  First up is the technology-blending story of Gear Monkey followed by the gods and goddesses of Mythic and throws in a tiki bar for good measure.
