The following was culled from the cool ghouls over at Shock Till You Drop: has received official word J.T. Petty’s The Burrowers is going to premiere on DVD in April 2009 following its fall ’08 festival run, confirming some of the rumblings we heard in the midst of the Midnight Meat Train’s release plans backlash in July.

Lionsgate is distributing the western/creature starring Doug Hutchison, Clancy Brown and William Mapother.

The Burrowers makes its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this week and then it’s U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin on September 21st

Now here’s some Burrowers video goodness:

Next up we have an official Poster and Myspace Page for the upcoming kickass documentary HIS NAME WAS JASON.  Check it out!

And here’s a fresh still from the new flick from JT Petty, THE BURROWERS showing a bit of one of the monsters (though, if you ask me, it looks a bit like mongoloid Jason Voorhees trapped in quicksand)

What else, ah yes, we have a Wendigo flick comin’ out pretty soon headlining Superman himself, Dean Cain, called MANEATER.  Fangoria got their mits on a pic of the monster.  Click the Pic for more information and more pics.

Seems as though Guillermo del Toro is owned by the Hobbit for the next billion years, but Variety reports that he’s still in talks with Universal about releasing his definitive vision of HP Lovecraft’s AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS, and if you haven’t read Lovecraft, Fuck You.

Last up is a little youtube fan flick that I found hilarious.  It was featured on SHOCK TILL YOU DROP and showcases the GREMLINS invading various other movies such as The Exorcist, Batman, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, etc.  Cool as hell and done really well, so check it out!

Until next time boils ‘n ghouls…KEEP IT CREEPY!!

Ok, I’m not entirely sure how this one slipped by me, but the new fright flick from JT PETTY, THE BURROWERS, just had a trailer hit the intarwebz.  According to the boys over at Bloody Disgusting, the plot is as follows:

After a family is brutally murdered in their home, a group of ranchers and infantry men embark on a crusade to find the killers. When a mysterious killer attacks their ranks, they discover that carnivorous creatures are hiding beneath the surface of the earth waiting to feed on their flesh.

I know, I know, kind of vague, so check below for the trailer and some wicked cool concept art.

For some reason, I can’t get TREMORS 4 out of my head…  Click on the Concept Art below for some cool stills over at Bloody Disgusting.

I’m completely stoked about THE BURROWERS.  I love the idea of combining my two favourite genres (Horror and Western), and I’m looking forward to what J.T. Petty does with the idea.  For those who don’t know about THE BURROWERS, here’s a little synopsis:

It is 1879 in the Dakota Territories. A handful of brave pioneers maintain isolated settlements in the badlands beyond civilization. Irish Immigrant Fergus Coffey is near to winning the hand of his beloved Maryanne when she is suddenly taken from him, her family brutally abducted in a nighttime attack on their homestead. Suspicion falls immediately on hostile Indians. Experienced Indian fighters Will Parcher and John Clay form a posse and set out to rescue the kidnapped settlers, taking along a naïve teenager hoping to prove himself a man, an ex-slave looking to find his place in the world and their ranch-hand, Coffey. But as men vanish in the night and horrific evidence accumulates with the dead and dying, the group discovers that their prey is far more terrifying than anything human, and their prospects are far more terrible than death.

And here is the trailer ya’ll were waitin’ for:


I know, I know, I haven’t been keeping up with the site as much as I should be.  Getting acclimated to the new job has been more than a handful, but rest assured boils and ghouls, big plans are in store for BACKWOODS HORRROR.  Within the next few days, expect a full review of the new DELUXE EDITIONS of FRIDAY THE 13th IV, V, and VI, and a review for the horror/western THE BURROWERS, along with a slew of independent horror releases.  THE BACKWOODS HORRORSHOW will be coming back soon…WITH A VENGEANCE, and I have been working out plans to turn it into a video production, making it, with any luck, the first real kickass video horrorshow on the ‘net.  Along with everything else, I’m working towards redesigning the site a bit and getting away from the plain jane that we’ve all come to know and love, moving towards more of a bloody, backwoods feel more in the, ahem, vein of what I’m trying to do here.  So peel off your eyelids because you ain’t gonna wanna miss what I have in store for YOU!
