animation

DAVID CRONENBERG is adapting “FOXED!” into a full length film!

A little while ago, I wrote about a short horror film titled “It’s Okay[read that here!] and mentioned that short films are becoming a fascination of mine. I like how they’re full length stories, but instead; they’re short, they’re sweet, and best of all: they have all the elements an actual film would have, but in a shorter time frame! Although I’m [naturally] all about the horror shorts, today I want to talk about a different type of short film – stop motion animation.. specifically one in particular: Foxed!.

Directed and written by James Stewart, Foxed! has been sweeping awards and earning itself nominations throughout the film festival scene since it’s release in 2013! Now – as of last week – it’s finally available to watch online for the first time in two years! [hold out until the end of the post to watch Foxed! in all it’s glory!] If that’s not enough to satisfy you, what’s even more exciting than that is that body-horror Director David Cronenberg has confirmed that he will be producing an adaptation this particular short into a feature length film!

Being as the characters and story still naturally belong to Stewart, he will be writing and directing the feature length adaptation of his original short, which will still blend traditional stop-motion animation with 3D techniques, kind of like Coraline, James & The Giant Peach, and The Nightmare Before Christmas [along with many other films] all had. If you’ve never heard of Foxed!, read the synopsis for the short [and presumably – the adaptation as well] which can be found below! The full length feature is set to be released in theaters in 2017, with no date or full length trailer set as of yet.


“When young Emily is kidnapped by foxes and forced to work in the mysterious underground Blue Goo Mines, she must use everything she’s got to get back home and uncover the foxes’ secret plan!”


So check out Foxed! : It’s a short film – clocking in at just under 5 minutes – but it’s definitely worth checking out for the atmosphere it gives off, it’s dark and moody feeling, and it’s voice acting is top-notch. It’s been nominated for [and won] tons of awards and with a full length adaptation of it on the way, that alone tells you that it’s worth watching. As I said, it’s finally available to watch online [via Vimeo] but because I simply cannot get enough of it, I’ve gone so far as to post it below. Let me know in a comment or two what you think of Emily‘s adventure in the Blue Goo Mines, and as a question of the day: Do you think she’ll escape the foxes and figure out their dark plan?

in defense of Rob Zombie’s “The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto” [2009]

indefenseElSuperI always find it fascinating when an actor or a movie Director steps out of their comfort zone to try something new. A classic example that I think of is Martin Scorsese, who followed up the masterpiece that is Shutter Island with a film adaptation of the children’s book “The Invention Of Hugo Cabret.” [Hugo] Hugo wasn’t a bad movie at all, it’s just that it felt so much more different than what we came to expect from Scorsese. The same could be said for Rob Zombie: who was working on The Devil’s Rejects, which was violent, filled with gore and filled with inappropriate themes such as necrophilia; when he came up and started working with the concept/art for the animated movie we’re talking about today:The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto. When it was first released, it came with very mixed reviews: saying things like “it’s way too inappropriate” or “it’s not funny – it’s sick and perverse!” Some people even said it deserves an X-rating! Even fans of Zombie‘s work weren’t entirely happy, I remember reading some reviews saying it was disappointing..but I have to say otherwise – though, maybe I’m bias. As with most things I talk about, expect spoilers; because I really couldn’t say much if I didn’t spoil it. If you’ve seen the film, or you are perfectly fine with spoilers – we’re starting..right after the jump.


Let’s start from the beginning: the plot of The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto is completely different than what we’re used to from Rob Zombie; because instead of a murderous family, [The Fireflys] we find this film to be a comedic homage to horror, action and exploitation films…it’s also animated! The plot isn’t really anything special, but it revolves around a super-hero luchador, the titular El Superbeasto who, along with his sister Suzi X, must try to save the world from the evil Dr. Satan[but not this Dr. Satan] who plans to try and gain ultimate power by having sex with an swearing, big breasted stripper by the name of Velvet von Black.. Also, Nazi Zombies are in the film, because they can be. seriously. But you know what? I like it – it’s different, and the fact that it’s an animation makes the whole thing feel goofy, and I like that it isn’t trying to take itself too seriously, even the music is only there as a way to tell the audiences what is happening during that particular scene – It’s like it knows it’s a parody, but there’s one true reason I love this movie so much, what is that reason? If you’re curious enough, you should read on!

[note: the whole catfight scene – as seen here – is arguably one of the most entertaining bloodfests I’ve seen in a long time! The music during really sets the scene..]

The single greatest things about the film is that it includes [many] cameo appearances by many iconic horror figures including King Kong, Dracula, The Bride Of Frankenstein, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Michael Myers and The Creature From The Black Lagoon! Even Jack Torrence from The Shining makes an appearance! If that isn’t enough, we also see two very special characters from Zombie‘s previous work, House Of 1000 Corpses; Captain Spaulding and Otis B. Driftwood in the bar scene. [don’t believe me?] Zombie‘s wife, the [extremely] beautiful Sheri Moon Zombie also provides the voice for Suzi X. Also, while not strictly horror film, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto is notable for its genre casting, which includes many [voice] actors who have appeared in Rob Zombie‘s other works such as Ken Foree, Dee Wallace, Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and even Danny Trejo! It really shows Rob‘s dedication to the genre of horror, placing them in his film[s] as an homage – which works really well! It feels like he’s paying them tribute, almost thanking them for being an inspiration!


I guess realistically though, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto isn’t the most fantastic film on the planet. It’s [really] good, and it’s a fun cult film to watch if you need something ‘scary, but not really scary’, but I wouldn’t go as far as to call it my favorite Rob Zombie film, because that title still is held by The Devil’s Rejects. So now I turn to you, dear reader: have you watched El Superbeasto? If you have, what were your thoughts on it? Did you actually enjoy the film, like I did; or did you find it disappointing – like many fans of Rob Zombie? Let me know in a comment or two! Leave it to Rob Zombie to have a smokin’ hot blond hide out as a werewolf Nazi.. I mean, I’m confused how I feel about that!

FILM STUDY: The Tim Burton TRIO Theory

Anyone who is a Tim Burton fan, or has even scoured the internet for a little bit knows [or at least, has heard of] this theory: Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, Corpse Bride, and The Nightmare Before Christmas are all one big movie. It seems to make sense, based on the above picture with each character looking like one another and each having a [dead] dog. However, after being asked by a friend to tackle this theory [especially since I’m a fairly large Tim Burton fan] and after over thinking these films – which I’ve watched over a dozen times each – I’m fairly confident in saying that these films are not connected in any way;  and I’m prepared  to explain why. So sit back, grab a snack and a drink; because this is going be one hell of a long post. okay. ~deep breath

Let’s start with Frankenweenie, the supposed beginning of this “timeline”.  Our story begins with Victor Frankenstein of New Holland, who comes off as a young and budding scientist and film maker with his best [and seemingly only] friend: Sparky – his dog. After a freak accident, [involving a simple game of “catch” with his dog] young Victor is friendless and alone.. or so he thinks! After learning about electric currents in his science class, and how electricity can shoot through the body, making body parts move. A typical Frankenstein scenario plays out with Sparky coming back to life, then dying..again.. and then Victor accepting that his friend is gone for good.

Flash forward to Corpse Bride, arguably my favorite of the three films we’re discussing today and the “middle” of the theory’s timeline. The movie follows Victor Van Dort of Victorian England, who is set to marry a woman he’s never met. While this Victor looks like a grown up version of Frankenweenie’s Victor, there is no correlation, let alone a mention claiming that they are even related.  Not only are Van Dort’s parents completely different than Frankenstein’s, the time lapse is completely wrong as well – New Holland is found in North Lincolnshire, England. Like in the town in Frankenweenie, it’s a really small village. To prove this, its population at one point was only 955 people! The period of Victorian England on the other hand, started in 1837, making these two films impossible to be under the same timeline. Also, It’s important to note that although they both had [dead] dogs, Sparky and Scraps have two separate names. Though, that last one is a smaller, less important detail.

Lastly, we have The Nightmare Before Christmas, or the ‘end’ of the theory’s timeline – This film follows Jack, the Pumpkin King playing an almost ‘reverse Grinch’ where, instead of hating Christmas, actually falls in love with the idea and tries to have his own Halloween-ed version of it, with his [dead] dog Zero helping out. Now right off the bat, things have proven themselves that Jack [and Zero], Victor F [and Sparky] and Victor V [and Scraps] are completely different people/dogs, specifically – their names and appearances.  Through-out Nightmare, we also learn that Jack is, and has been, the Pumpkin King for a very long time – long enough that even a hint at his ‘human life’ [assuming he had one] was never mentioned in film. As far as viewers are aware, Jack has always been a living skeleton. Also, going back to names, what would be the reasoning for Victor to change his name to Jack? [and Sparky to Scraps to Zero? these are important questions]

In closing, I feel that this theory doesn’t make much sense, with each character not entirely matching up to the character they supposedly become. While I wish it could be true, the facts against it are too strong.. How do you feel about this theory? Could Jack Skellington actually be Victor Frankenstein? Or does the whole theory feel too farfetched?

HBO’S SPAWN: THE ANIMATED SERIES [1997]

20150118-091655.jpg
there comes a time in every super hero’s life where they get an awesome animated tv series: Batman got his Batman Beyond, and Spider-Man had his own animated series called “Spider-Man: The Animated Series” — which happens to be my favorite, being as I grew up with it. But there was one hero who stood differently from the others; unlike Batman and Spider-Man, this hero had a darker tale, and his animated series played at only midnight. If that doesn’t sound awesome enough, the show was also shown on HBO! Who is this individual, you ask? This [anti] hero went by the name of Spawn.

the Spawn animated series ran from 1997 to 1999 [a short period of only 18 episodes] but from what I’ve read, it’s actually quite faithful to the source material: since Todd McFarlaneSpawn‘s creator — help create the show. It also won a number of awards for it’s dark/gritty animation style; including an Emmy for “outstanding animation” in 1998 — only a year after it’s initial release!

20150118-093919.jpg
Spawn follows a government trained assassin who becomes a vengeful Hellspawn in death. When he’s brought back from the dead he’s enlisted to join Hell’s army and release his carnage on anyone that gets in his way. With both Heaven and Hell battle for his already torn soul, Spawn spends most of his time wandering the dark and dirty alleys, protecting the innocent and destroying the corrupt. The show isn’t all violence and heroism though, the show also has a ‘human’ feel to it too, especially because Spawn also faces the acceptance of his own death, find and destroy his own killer, face the fact that he has been sent to Hell after his assassin life and worst of all: must also face the reality of losing his wife to an old war friend.

20150118-095216.jpg
Though you might be able to find a few episodes of the show on VHS, in 2008 HBO released the coolest steelbook. [as seen in the above picture] it has all 18 episodes and tons of behind the scene footage. Not surprisingly though, it’s not a cheap item: which makes me glad I found my copy at a pawnshop for $5.00! HBO‘s Spawn comes highly recommended from me: it’s dark, it can be funny [depends on your definition of “funny” though], but most of all; it’s really well done animation! [I believe a few episodes are even on YouTube!] if you ever get a chance at this collection for cheap, do not hesitate — you won’t regret it!

THANKS FOR READING.

[fun fact: Todd McFarlane has been in talks about a NEW Spawn animated series. Will it live up to this one? Only time will tell!]

warrenisweird’s TOP 05 movies watched in 2014

top05movieswatched2014

As 2014 comes closer to a close everyday, I figured it’d be best to do this now rather than later and talk about some of my favorite films of the year. However, I’m doing it differently than most people who do this kind of thing: instead of my favorite movies from this year, I’m going to be doing a list of movies I watched in 2014 – meaning, if a film came out in 2013, but I saw it for the first time in 2014, then it’s completely valid for this particular list. Make sense? Cool. Some of the films I’ve chosen even have full posts dedicated to how awesome they were. Now, enough babble – let’s begin this list; and surprisingly, some of them aren’t even horror!

[note: as per usual, this list is in no specific order!]


13 Sins:

To begin this list, I’m going to mention a film I once called a “special little gem”. I had heard of it before, and when I finally got around to actually watching it – I was in awe. Apparently it was quite the awe-inspiring film, cause I even dedicated an entire post to it: check it out here! It’s a remake of a Korean film, but I didn’t know that until after I watched it, so I’m not arguing that point!


Guardians Of The Galaxy:

I must be Hooked On A Feeling [I am so sorry for that pun] cause honestly, this film is probably one of the greatest film I have seen in a long time. It had everything I wanted it to have.. and more! I mean who doesn’t like a talking raccoon and a walking, talking tree?! I know I do! read a full-fledged review of Guardians over here.


How To Train Your Dragon 2:

Simply put, How To Train Your Dragon 2 is probably the most heart-warming films to make this list. The first Dragons film is one of my all time favorite animated films ever, and this sequel definitely confirmed my love for the characters. It’s an emotional roller-coaster, and I absolutely loved it. The movie left me with but a singular thought: I want a fucking dragon. [read my letterboxd review on the film]


American Mary:

Although technically from 2012, I first watched American Mary all the way back in February. It’s a hauntingly beautiful film, [especially after a rewatch] with some nice horror elements to say in the least. It was a quirky little film that definitely deserves more love. Did I mention that Katharine Isabelle is extremely hot in this film? [seriously. don’t believe me? click here! NSFW warning]


Tusk:

This one is definitely one for the books. Tusk is one of those films that you either love, or you find yourself absolutely hating. It isn’t a movie for everyone. It’s funny, it’s eerie, it’s fucking weird. But you can feel Kevin Smith oozing from it. [this is not a bad thing] It’s about a man who wants to turn another man into a walrus.. and then he fucking does. [because of course he does] It’s a blood-soaked mess, but I absolutely loved it – particularly, the concept. If you want to know my full thoughts on this beast, read my review on the film here.


Obviously, there are tons of movies that I could have mentioned for this list, but there’s just so many to choose from.. I could have gone on and on forever with the movies I enjoyed this past year, but it’s hard to narrow it down to just five. What were your favorite films of the year? Do you have a favorite that comes from this list? let me know in a comment! With 2014 officially on it’s way out, it’s time to prepare for 2015, and all it’s horror [films] that are coming our way! [and that’s not including the newest slate of horror remakes that are bound to happen cause as we all know, Hollywood is completely out of originality these days]

Attack On Titan 2015: Godzilla is NOTHING compared to THESE Titans!

attack-on-titan.jpg

[seriously. if you haven’t seen this series, DO it ASAP!]

Though I’m not into anime as much as I used to be, [I’m fairly picky with what I watch now-a-days]  one series in particular had me gripped from the very beginning: Attack On Titan. In fact, I’m so excited, I just had to share these official teaser poster[s] for it’s live-action adaptation! [for those purists: the original anime is also on Netflix!]

Based on what the writers to this two-part live action movie had to say, the Titans are actually larger than the biggest and baddest Godzilla. [to put that into perspective, the Titans in this film stand at a whopping 120m as opposed to the 108m Godzilla in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film] and that’s not even the best part; unlike most monster movies these days, the live action adaptation of Attack On Titan‘s Titans will be a mix of both CGI and practical Special FX – under the supervision of special effects director Onoue Katsuro. This means the effects of said Titans are going to have the same feeling as Jurassic Park‘s dinosaurs. If you haven’t heard of the show, haven’t watched it, or you just aren’t aware of the story that the film is going to follow, the plot is as follows:

“The sudden arrival of the Titans–mysterious, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour human beings one after the other–brings mankind to the brink of extinction. Fast-forward more than 100 years later. What remains of the human population now live in relative peace behind massive walls that were erected to defend themselves against the Titans. Yet once again, that peace is shattered when a Titan measuring over 50 meters tall smashes through the wall, allowing a horde of other Titans to enter. The protagonist, Eren, had been resigned to a life confined behind these walls. Nothing I do would make a difference, he thought. But when he joins the “Outer Wall Restoration Team” set up to fight against the Titans, he is reunited with Mikasa, a childhood friend and someone he had long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to obtain explosives, which had become rare and precious, before getting past the waves of Titans to plug the gaping hole in the wall, with humanity’s survival on the line. Will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself?”

the entire cast has been revealed for Shinji Higuchi’s Japanese film [meaning it’ll be dubbed, no doubt] in a series of character banners. There will also be a wide variety of new characters, which is pretty exciting if you ask me! The characters look fan-fucking-tastic and I’m extremely excited for this to be released. Below, I have included all the released character banners for your viewing pleasure: [13 character posters total] and then at the very end of this post; you’ll see our enemy – I mean, that Titan looks fucking huge!













Usually, this would be the part where I explain the part I’m most excited for in this film and/or what I’m hoping they include.. [from the source material, in this case; the original manga] but, I don’t want to spoiler anything for anyone in the middle of watching the series, or that are currently reading the manga.  I will say this though, I sincerely hope they add more than just the one Titan. [which can be seen on a poster below] I have the highest of hopes for this film, which will be released in Summer 2015, so long as it holds strong to the original anime. [which I have a sudden urge to watch now]

words CANNOT describe how excited I am for this..

Hotel Transylvania 2’s “Vlad” finally surfaces!

Go ahead and say what will, but I actually really enjoyed 2012’s Hotel Transylvania. It was a family styled animation, that played off classic Hollywood Monsters; such as the Wolfman and Frankenstein. The film followed Dracula, [voiced perfectly by Adam Sandler] who runs a high-class resort far away from the world of humans,  who drives himself into overprotective father mode when a young human boy stumbles into the resort and falls for the Count’s teen daughter. Obviously, [like most family films] it ends on a high and happy note, with everyone getting along; including Dracula and Jonathan, [the human] even leaving some room for a sequel – and what a sequel we are getting! Without a trailer yet, the film is slated for release on September 25th, 2015.

Last week, [December 3rd, 2014] news broke loose that Oscar-, Tony-, Grammy– and Emmy– award winning writer, director, performer, composer and producer [sheesh! what a mouthful, am I right?] Mel Brooks will in fact, be in Hotel Transylvania 2.. and as Vlad, Dracula‘s father, none the less; some [but not many] pictures have surfaced online from the upcoming film including one of Mr. Brooks in the role of Vlad – the ancient, undead [and extremely] grumpy father to Sandler‘s Dracula character. If you haven’t heard about the film yet, the plot for the Hotel Transylvania 2 is as follows:

Dracula, Mavis, Jonathan the human and all of their monster friends are back in the brand new comedy adventure: when the old-old-old-fashioned vampire Vlad arrives at the hotel for an impromptu family get-together, the Hotel Transylvania is in for a comic collision of supernatural old-school and modern day cool.”

Mel Brooks – who takes on the role 40 years after writing/directing the horror-comedy classic Young Frankenstein – has said, “I’m having a wonderful time with the character Vlad. He’s been around for eons and he’s a pretty crabby guy. Basically, he reminds me of me.” If that doesn’t get you excited, check out our first look at Vlad in the screenshot below!

Hell, Vlad even looks like Mel Brooks [look at the above image, and then click here to compare the two] I’m just hoping that the second film is as fun as the first one, which it should be, with all it’s quirky humor: with Sandler being executive-producer on set. According to producer Michelle Murdocca, Jonathan found Dracula quite intimidating in the original Hotel Transylvania movie, [and the movie proves that really well] but by the time the sequel comes around, he’s really weirded out by Vlad. Murdocca mentioned how “He [Vlad] actually lives in a cave — he’s about as old school as it gets. So when he comes and sees that Dracula is running a hotel, he’s like, ‘What is going on here?’ ”

How do you feel about Mel Brooks joining the cast of Hotel Transylvania 2? More importantly, how do you feel about the idea of Vlad coming in this installment into [what could turn into] this franchise? Let me know in a comment or two! If you haven’t seen the first film yet, I strongly recommend it – it’s a strong family film with tons of humor, and horror references to even the classic monster films we all know and love!

“you don’t become a hero by being normal” : ParaNorman

20141023-091047.jpg

[taken from the movie cover of ParaNorman]


Have you her felt like an outsider to your peers because you were “different”? I bet it didn’t feel great, did it? That’s the suffering that our hero, Norman, has to face everyday.. until his quiet existence is interrupted by a strange omen — that a witch is going to come back to terrorize Blithe Hollow! [his home town]

ParaNorman is an animated “kids-horror” film noted for being made by Laika. [who made the likes of such movies as “Coraline“, or even “James & The Giant Peach“] the film starts off with our zombie-obsessed hero Norman watching an old black and white horror film with his grandmother. When Grandma asks Norman to ask his father to turn up the heat, all sorts of hell breaks loose! as it turns out, Grandma has been dead for a while now; making the viewer realize that Norman can in fact see the dead. Which becomes more obvious as we see him talking to ghostly figures on his walk to school: such as a dog, a pilot stuck in a tree [how’s it hanging?], even a bird with the plastic from soda rings: all dead.. and Norman can see, and even have full conversations, with them all.

Unfortunately, no one believes him at home, [his sister flat out yells at him for “striving for attention” to which his father agrees!] so naturally, the same happens at school — where he’s known as ParaNorman[get it? cause he’s Paranormal? ..forget it]

20141023-092933.jpg
At school, he’s considered different. someone strange; therefore, as seen above, everyone ignores him. he’s simply just there. that is until he meets an unlikely friend in a kid known as Neil. Norman and Neil work together well as friends since they both get picked on [for different things, obviously] and believe it or not, Neil actually believes in Norman about his abilities to see and talk to the dead.

this is one of the few sad things that are shown in the film.

Things only stir up when a man called Mr. Prenderghast shows up [revealing to be Norman‘s uncle] and tells him that he has to perform a ritual at a grave to stop a witch from coming back from the dead and killing everyone! unfortunately, it’s not so simple..especially since Norman doesn’t know where to start: except for getting a book from Prenderghast‘s house [which ends up being a fairytale book]. When the ritual doesn’t work as planned, the witch – known as Agatha – comes back and immediately starts terrorizing everyone, [as she promised] leaving Norman to fix everything before it’s too late. So with a unlikely team consisting of Neil, Norman, Courtney [Norman‘s sister] and Neil‘s brother; they set out to stop the witch, before it’s too late..

20141023-101431.jpg

hardcore zombies, man.. they’re a real thing!

With the dead coming back to life, people start freaking out, breaking out weapons and the like preparing for a full out war, but the unlikely heroes are heading to the town hall, trying to find records of Agatha and what happened to her.. When Norman catches on to the truth of “Agatha‘s past, he rushes to the source of the storm [which is what’s causing the dead to rise] and finds what can only be called the most terrifying cloud in a kids film:

20141023-102041.jpg

you can’t say that’s not fucking terrifying.. jeez.

When Norman tries to talk to Agatha, telling her to quit what she’s started, Norman falls into a sort of time-warp; landing back in the days of old.. where Norman learns the real truth behind the witch. As it turns out, Agatha was a young girl [around Norman‘s age actually] when she learned she had a gift; she could talk to ghosts [sound familiar?!] however, due to the time period, she was written off as a witch — which got her brought to trial instantly, and ultimately, her death. Her final words were that one day she’d make them pay for what they did, which she clearly kept to her word.

Meanwhile, back in modern-day and now knowing the truth, Norman realizes he has to find a way to convince Agatha that she can’t keep doing this. By tormenting people, she is coming off worse than the people who once killed her. She’s not playing fair, she just wants revenge. The movie’s climax ends when Agatha finally calms down, [took long enough!] and decides to rest [meaning “be at peace”?.. fuck, his movie got depressing really quick, didn’t it?] Finally, Norman is viewed as a hero, and everyone’s happy.

ParaNorman is an awesome kids film – filled with simple scares, laughs, jokes, and even sadness — the film has something for everyone. If the above didn’t convince you enough to give a watch, [it is on Netflix] watch it for Courtney. She may be animated but she’s voiced by the ever so lovely Anna Kendrick — you know, this babe:

20141023-103327.jpg

you can’t honestly tell me that Anna Kendrick [left] isn’t a babe. cause she so totally is..
