Underrated Horror Films of the New Millennium on MVP Mutant Radio

Sep 13, 2013

Happy Friday the 13th, my fellow horror geeks! It’s time to get out that hockey mask, sharpen that machete and play hide and seek with the neighbors! In honor of Friday the 13th at MVP Mutant Radio – we’re not really going to talk about the Friday the 13th movies at all – that is unless you count the two minutes where I do mention my favorite entries in the series. Instead, we’re going to talk about the most criminally underrated horror films of the new Millennium. http://traffic.libsyn.com/mvpmutantradio/Underrated_Horror_MVP_Mutant_Radio.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 1:34:58 — 86.9MB) | EmbedBecome MVP Player Subscriber iTunes | Android |...

Lords of Salem (2013) Official Second Trailer from Rob Zombie hits Trailer Park Tuesday!

Listen up, Kiddiez, Rob Zombie is coming back to theaters this year with an original work entitled Lords of Salem. The movie sounds like Zombie’s homage to the classic heavy metal horror films of yesteryear like Rock ‘N Roll Nightmare, Trick Or Treat and Hard Rock Zombies. Some of the imagery looks like Zombie lifted it from Ken Russell’s The Devils – and that’s a pretty good place to start! Early reviews are mixed – but that won’t stop MVP from getting out to see it opening weekend. Check out the full trailer after the...

Scarecrows, Slashers and Secrets in 35mm at this week’s Back Alley Film Series at the Carolina Cinemas.

“October Screams” begin this Thursday October 11th courtesy of the Back Alley Film Series and Carolina Cinemas with a screening of Scarecrow at Midnight from the Tales from Mutantville anthology followed by a special “Secret 35mm Screening” circa Spain 1987. Tickets are only $8 each and the show starts at 7:30pm with MVP’s short slasher – Scarecrow at Midnight. MVP will be on hand with plenty of door prizes so get there early. From writer/director J.T.McRoberts: “Scarecrow at Midnight came from MVP’s love of classic Halloween themed horror films. In 2010, Kenny Caperton, owner of the Myers House NC asked us to come up with something original to shoot in his home. Since Kenny’s house is a replica of the infamous Myers House from John Carpenter’s Halloween – he is constantly inundated with requests from filmmakers to shoot Michael Myers fanfilms at his home. Kenny asked MVP to come up with an original idea to shoot there and Scarecrow at Midnight was the result. We combined a tight little script about a scarecrow slasher with a talented cast and a dedicated crew and spent two days at Kenny’s house shooting. The result is an engaging little Halloween themed slasher flick that has become a big hit with fans during the Halloween season. The short film premiered at the Nevermore Film Festival in 2011, and has gone on to play at conventions and festivals across the country – including a 2011 Halloween screening where it opened for a 35mm screening of Evil Dead. It has become something that fans are associating with our favorite time of the year – Halloween. That means more to me than anything else in the world. Now with Scarecrow at Midnight being released to DVD this month on the Tales from Mutantville anthology – it seems only fitting that we screen it at the cinema – one last time.” The Back Alley Film Series and Carolina Cinemas will play host to the final theatrical screening of Scarecrow at Midnight this Thursday October 11th. Don’t miss the show as the Mutantville Players will be on hand giving away plenty of door prizes including vintage Fangoria magazines, a rare signed Roger Corman...

“OCTOBER SCREAMS” AT CAROLINA CINEMAS CROWNPOINT. FILM SERIES ANNOUNCES 4 FILMS TO TINGLE THE SPINE THIS OCTOBER.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Charlotte, NC – The Charlotte Film Society’s BACK ALLEY FILM SERIES and Carolina Cinemas Crownpoint Stadium 12 announce 4 horror-themed films for October. The series “October Screams” kicks off October 11th 2012 with a 35mm presentation of an amazing, rarely seen film from the mid 80’s. This and the BAFS films over the following three weeks bring to Charlotte films that would otherwise not be available in the Queen City. Get the full rundown after the leap! Kicking off the series on October 11th we are going retro for a very special SECRET 35mm screening! We are keeping the film title under wraps for fear some of you will look at the trailer or a synopsis (which will simply give away way too much about this great film) but we are sure that if you trust us and attend the screening you will be impressed. The following week (October 18th) BAFS stays retro as the Japanese horror classic HAUSU (House) hits the big screen in 35mm. How do you describe Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 1977 movie? A psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby Doo as directed by Dario Argento? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head-trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home only to come face to face with evil spirits, bloodthirsty pianos, and a demonic housecat. Too absurd to be genuinely terrifying, yet too nightmarish to be merely comic, House looks like it was beamed to Earth from another planet. Don’t miss this astonishing cult favorite, fashioned after the eccentric musings of the director’s eleven-year-old daughter. October 25th brings V/H/S, the most anticipated horror film of 2012. When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for their target, they’re treated to...
