Carrie. I think I’m having a flashback – to the 70′s. Not an acid flashback, but a horror one. I can’t help but feeling I’ve seen this movie before. Its been a horror staple for as long as I can remember and for some reason the Powers That Be in Hollywood decided that a remake of their classic was needed. I know 80 percent of their budgets go to remakes and sequels and this Halloween has been frightfully devoid of the horror movies, but I’m allowed to be a cranky old lady about this remake.
Some things should left alone. LIke 80′s films. Just let them be, studios. And that’s exactly what happened when MGM put their remake Red Dawn on the shelf back in 2009 while they dealt with financial hardships.
On the shelf is where it should have stayed. Watch then trailer below and then find out why after the jump.
February is Tainted Love Month here at Biff Bam Pop!, which means we are celebrating love, but not the way most of the mainstream Valentine’s Day crowd see it. We’re bringing you tales of twisted romance, unrequited love, outrageous passions, and even the beasts whose names we dare not speak. We’ve been to space, seen vampires and werewolves, brothers and zombies, gods and super-villains, and even super stalkers. Yeah, tainted love, baby.
Now I’m going to take you to the glory days of Hollywood. Director Tod Browning (1880-1962) is perhaps best known for the 1931 Dracula, but the true highlights of his film career were in the 1920s silent film era, where along with the brilliant acting of Lon Chaney, and the twisted screenwriting of Waldemar Young, he created some of the most monstrous love stories known to man. Welcome to Tod Browning’s tales of tainted love, after the jump.
Ready or not, here’s the second red band trailer for the Evil Dead remake… I’m warning you up front, this is not for the kids, nor the squeamish, and I’m betting it’s not work safe either…
Evil Dead stars Jane Levy and Shiloh Fernandez, and opens April 12, 2013.
A few days back we featured the first poster for Star Trek Into Darkness and now we have an official teaser trailer for you.
And if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, cruise on over to the official Star Trek Into Darkness section of iTunes Movie Trailers, specifically to the Japanese trailer, and watch it until the very end. They get a bit more detail than we have over here in North America.
This is looking more and more like a remake/reimagining of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan… It would be nice if we could finally get confirmation on exactly who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing…
What do you folks think? Let us know in the comments below, and on Facebook!
There’s lots of buzz about this film with the new remake in theaters. The flick is close to the heart of many people. I remember the outrage of some of my friends when they heard they were remaking this movie. Confession time, I have never seen it. Let’s find out why the original Red Dawn is such a classic together, and why “Wolverines!” is such a part of our culture, after the jump.

Survival of the fittest – it is perhaps the most true of all laws. Whether it is in the darkest jungle, the hottest desert, the frozen wastes, the deepest oceans, or on a school playground – the strongest survives by preying on the weakest. That last example is important, as children following this rule are perhaps the cruelest. This covers many stories in our culture, most chronicling a descent from civilization into savagery. We’ve seen it recently in The Hunger Games, before that in Battle Royale, but we’re going to go back a bit further, to what some may call the original Hunger Game… Lord of the Flies. More savagery after the jump…
As an adult, nothing should scare me any more, short of death, taxes, and, of course, The Bride. But as an aficionado of horror movies, there are some flicks that do get a rise out of me. There are film nuggets that actually scare the crap outta me, some to the point where I won’t even watch them again. That’s how scared they get me. They are the stuff of vampires, gremlins, devil dolls, and the ultimate of all evils, mankind itself. Here’s yet another movie that still scares the crap outta me, after the jump.
