NEW ‘CRAZIES’ REMAKE TRAILER 2

Actually looks like a good ‘un!  Check out the Trailer for the upcoming CRAZIES remake below!

‘CRAZIES’ REMAKE TRAILER HITS THE WEB

An official trailer for the upcoming February 26, 2010 release of THE CRAZIES remake has hit the web.  Check it out below!

Here’s a synopsis if you haven’t seen the Romero original (in which case, do so immediately).

A husband and wife in a small Midwestern town find themselves battling for survival as their friends and family descend into madness in The Crazies. A mysterious toxin in the water supply turns everyone exposed to it into mindless killers and the authorities leave the uninfected to their certain doom in this terrifying reinvention of the George Romero horror classic. Directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara), The Crazies is written by Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39) and Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). The American Dream goes horribly wrong when the residents of this picture-perfect town begin to succumb to an uncontrollable urge for violence and the horrific bloodshed escalates into anarchy. In an attempt to contain the epidemic, the military uses deadly force to close off access into or out of town, abandoning the few healthy citizens to the growing mayhem as depraved killers lurk in the shadows. Sheriff David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant); his pregnant wife, Judy (Radha Mitchell); Becca (Danielle Panabaker), an assistant at the medical center; and Russell (Joe Anderson), Dutton’s deputy and right-hand man, find themselves trapped in a once idyllic town they can no longer recognize. Unable to trust former neighbors and friends, deserted by the authorities and terrified of contracting the illness themselves, they are forced to band together in a nightmarish struggle for survival.

NEW POSTER FOR ‘THE CRAZIES’ REMAKE

How could I have missed this?  Check out the poster for the upcoming remake to THE CRAZIES:

I don’t really believe THE CRAZIES needs a remake necessarily, but the film DOES lend itself to that idea more than any other flick that’s been remade.  Of course, saying that, this remake trend HAS TO FUCKING STOP!  That is a pretty damn neat poster though.  If it had the original font style from the original flick, I’d buy it and just pretend it was intended for the original.  I wish it was Uncle George who was going behind the pen and the lens on this one.  It’s probably going to blow.

NEW TRAILER FOR GIRLS AGAINST BOYS!

Opening February 1st (in select cities), Anchor Bay has released a brand spankin’ new Trailer for GIRLS AGAINST BOYS (which you can check out, along with an 8 minute clip after the break). The last time I spoke on GIRLS AGAINST BOYS, or, rather, wrote on the subject, I compared it to rape-revenge flicks such as I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE or SAVAGE STREETS. Well, I’ve actually SEEN GIRLS AGAINST BOYS and I wouldn’t make such comparisons now. More of a whacked out THELMA & LOUISE than anything else with murder galore is probably closer to the mark. I’m keeping a lid on a review until after a Screening I’m going to next week, so for now I’m not sayin’ peep on what I think about the film. What I WILL say, however, is check out the new trailer after the break!

SYNOPSIS:

When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naïve college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches her breaking point, and is drawn into coworker Lu’s (Nicole LaLiberte) twisted plan for revenge. Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, but any man who gets in their way. However, after a wild weekend of retaliation, the friendship between the girls shifts into a dangerous obsession, and their perverse game becomes a desperate struggle for Shae to maintain control against Lu’s deadly and seductive influence.

Written and directed by acclaimed director Austin Chick (XX/XY, August) Girls Against Boys stars Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies), Nicole LaLiberte (HBO’s “How to Make It in America”), Andrew Howard (Limitless), Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield), and Liam Aiken (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events).

Be sure to keep checking the official GIRLS AGAINST BOYS facebook page, along with Anchor Bay Films’s Twitter Feed for more information. And, of course, always check back here  at BACKWOODS HORROR for more as it comes down the pipeline.

Over the holiday season (Dec. 20th to be more precise), Anchor Bay Films put out a press release for a grisly rape revenge film titled GIRLS AGAINST BOYS, and it sounds very intriguing. From the description, I’m reminded somewhat of films such as I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and SAVAGE STREETS, but with something entirely new brought to the mix, as you’ll see below.
