The Mean One Christmas Parody is Coming Home on VOD

Published

on

I have exciting news for the very niche group of people that love both Christmas and the Terrifier franchise. The Mean One is being released on Video on Demand platforms this fall.

For those that are unaware, The Mean One is a parody of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Only this version will feature blood and guts courtesy of David Howard Thornton (Terrifier). Although Art The Clown will not be bringing his traditional production crew along with him, we still expect to see that gleeful madness that David Thornton is known for.

That doesn’t mean the production of this film doesn’t involve some heavy hitters. The film is being directed by Steven LaMorte (The Witching Hour). And is co-written by Flip Kobler (Bury Me Twice), and Finn Kobler (All Hallow’s Eve 2).

This film was released in theaters on December 9th, 2022, and fans have been eagerly awaiting its arrival on streaming platforms. Those that missed its initial theatrical release can rejoice when the film releases to VOD on October 3rd, 2023.

Director Adam Green Relays a Chilling True Story About the Ski Lift in ‘Frozen’

Published

on

Just before director Adam Green announced the DVD release of his festival hit Victor Crowley back in 2018, he gave fans a behind-the-scenes tale about another one of his films; Frozen.

As we approach the 14th anniversary of that movie, we thought we would rewind a bit and re-share what he said about his experience on Frozen; his most successful film to date.

In Frozen a group of friends get stuck on a ski lift high above the ground in the middle of a snowstorm and try to figure out how to get down.

The film is not based on a true story, but there is an eerie coincidence as he tells it attached to the film’s location, and he may have had a premonition while riding the lift before cameras even started rolling.

“[We] finally came over these trees and there it was,” conveys Adam while scouting exteriors 50 feet above the ground. “There was the spot and instead of me saying ‘This is where we should shoot the movie,’ for some reason I said ‘This is where they die,’ and the chair just stopped- stopped! And I thought the representative of the mountain was like f***ing with us or something, but no it stopped.”

Adam says he excused the sudden halt to the wind or something else; it’s no rare occurrence that ski lifts stop without warning, but he says it was still really eerie and what was only a few minutes of hanging there in mid-air, felt like an hour.

Here’s the strange part,  as he was shooting the movie he found out from lift operators that someone had taken their own life with a firearm in that exact same location. They even showed a member of the crew the alleged chair that had the bullet hole in it.

Thinking it was still just a rumor, or a local urban legend Adam did more investigating. It wasn’t until Sundance that Adam got confirmation the death was real.

“Somebody in the audience raised their hand, and…said the person’s name. It was a true story, someone did die there. After that point my editor and I started going through all the footage trying to see if there was another voice on the audio or can you see anything.” They didn’t.

However chilling that story is we’d still love to hear if there was ever a conversation with Disney about using them using the name Frozen for their animated hit which came out three years later.

We sadly assume Disney won’t be doing a princess musical about Victor Cowley anytime soon, so we know that copyright is safe.

Stateside Final Trailer For ‘Godzilla Minus One’ Drops

Published

on

Already a word-of-mouth critical success Godzilla Minus One swims to the States today, opening in theaters nationwide. In celebration of that, TOHO released the final trailer for the blockbuster which doesn’t add much to the others, but it still looks great.

This release was wholly produced by Japan, the monster’s original home. Not since Shin Godzilla (2016) has the country produced another film until now. It’s been almost seven decades since the prehistoric Kaiju emerged from the Pacific Ocean to begin his love/hate relationship with Tokyo.

Fans have had a love/hate relationship themselves, not with the monster but with Hollywood. The first American-produced film was released in 1998. It didn’t capture the charm and romance of the original. Several other American sequels were made, each more grandiose than the last. Again, the lore and fantasy were swallowed by big actors and special effects.

With Godzilla Minus One, fans and critics say this might be the best direct Japanese sequel since the original. At any rate, Godzilla Minus One is now playing nationwide in America.

A Boy Band Kills Our Favorite Reindeer in “I Think I Killed Rudolph”

Published

on

The new movie There’s Something in the Barn seems like a tongue-in-cheek holiday horror movie. It’s like Gremlins but bloodier and with gnomes. Now there is a song on the soundtrack that captures the humor and horror of the movie called I Think I Killed Rudolph.

The ditty is a collab between two Norwegian boy bands: Subwoofer and A1.

Subwoofer was s Eurovision entrant in 2022. A1 is a popular act from the same country. Together they killed poor Rudolph in a hit-and-run. The humorous song is a part of the film which follows a family fulfilling their dream, “of moving back after inheriting a remote cabin in the mountains of Norway.” Of course, the title gives away the rest of the movie and it turns into a home invasion — or — a gnome invasion.

There’s Something in the Barn releases in cinemas and On Demand December 1.
