“Even a big bitch cockroach like you should know… never, but never, fuck with the King.”

From writer-director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, John Dies At The End), 2002’s Bubba Ho-Tep is one of the craziest horror comedies you’ll ever see. When mysterious deaths plague a Texas retirement home, it’s up to Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) and President John F. Kennedy (Ossie Davis) to battle a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy dressed like a cowboy.

An elderly man (Campbell) resides at the Shady Rest Retirement Home where he tells anyone that will listen that he’s “The King” himself, Elvis Presley. He explains that during the ’70s, he grew tired of fame and switched places with Sebastian Haff, an Elvis impersonator. It was Haff who died on the toilet in 1977, while he – the real Elvis – lived a quiet life pretending to be himself. Twenty years after a hip injury ended his impersonator career, Elvis is living in a retirement home with cancerous growth on his “pecker.”

Phantasm

strong>Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm series, one of the greatest and most enduring horror franchises of them all, has terrified millions of fans around the world and given them an iconic villain to forever haunt their nightmares in the form of the glowering Tall Man, played to perfection by the late Angus Scrimm. The original film, made on a scrappy budget of $300,000 and released to outstanding international box office in 1979, celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2014 with the surprising news that a fifth installment in the series was on its way.

You can watch a teaser trailer for the long-awaited fourth sequel to the original, entitled Phantasm: Ravager, here below.

Scream has been responsible for some of the finest Blu-ray editions of the greatest genre features ever made, and last night they announced that soon they will add 13 titles to their ever-expanding library.

Phantasm

2014 marks the 35th anniversary of the theatrical release of the original Phantasm, a nightmarish horror classic written and directed by Don Coscarelli that managed to carve out its own comfortable spot in the history of the genre despite being initially dismissed as an unfocused oddity. It was released at the tail end of a decade forever identified with the rise of gritty, grounded shockers such as The Exorcist, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, and Dawn of the Dead and stood out from the pack for its offbeat approach to conventional horror filmmaking and its iconic villain the Tall Man, a delightfully old school baddie played with menace and mirth by the great Angus Scrimm. Phantasm spawned three sequels, the first made for Universal Pictures with an increased budget and elaborate visual effects.

The last sequel, Phantasm IV: Oblivion, was released in 1998 and was a low-budget affair created using an extensive amount of scenes deleted from the first film. It also ended with a weird cliffhanger that has had fans of the series clamoring for another installment ever since. Throughout the years there have been multiple rumors floating around regarding a new Phantasm movie, and earlier this week “Phans” everywhere got a huge surprise when it was revealed that a fifth movie was not only in the works, it was already finished and awaiting a release. Phantasm: Ravager is very real, my fellow fiends, and it is on its way with a vengeance. The first poster was released two days ago, and since then information about this no-longer-secret project has been released piecemeal. Today the film’s minute-long teaser trailer has debuted, and you can check it out, as well as the poster, here below.

If you’re about to watch John Dies At The End, you are about to fall into a glorious universe of ridiculousness and weirdness you’ve not yet experienced. This flick is part Twilight Zone, part X-Files, part horror, part comedy, and all brilliant – from balls to bones, and will be an immediate classic among geeks and horror fans alike.

David Wong, and his friend John Cheese, find themselves entering a completely new realm of reality and unreality when they come across a new drug they dub “The Soy Sauce.” The substance causes them to open up a whole range of perceptions, and provides them the ability to see and experience creatures and things that “normal” people just cannot perceive.
