Rob Zombie's 'Lords of Salem' Is A Radical Departure From -- Just Kidding

aka Roman Polanski's 'The Addams Family.' Rob Zombie has readied the first teaser trailer for Lords of Salem and, boy, this is certainly a departure from the Salem established by Days of Our Lives. Sammy and Marlena and Roman are nowhere to be seen in the rocker's take. Instead, Zombie proves himself the secret lovechild of Tim Burton and Clive Barker by giving us bleached and blown out imagery of his wife and extras from a Lady Gaga video walking very slowly. Although Zombie does show maturity and restraint by not including haunting images of an hourglass sinisterly draining sand. That would just be disrespectful to MacDonald Carey.

Zombie Acting Tips with Rob Corddry

Zombie action is all the rage these days, and this week Hal was lucky enough to sit down with the cast of the new zombie comedy Warm Bodies, to talk about zombies and how Rob Corddry may be the Daniel Day-Lewis of zombie acting.... until Daniel Day-Lewis tries zombie acting. Thanks to cast and crew of #WarmBodies - Tweet the video! http-// A funny new twist on a classic story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human -- setting off an exciting, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ Teaser Looks Like A Rob Zombie Movie

Why did Kevin Smith film this with a buttcam? This first look at Kevin Smith's Red State seems like a real departure for the director. It's gritty with it's muted colors and low-tech imagery. The camera work itself is a big departure for Smith, whose primarily known for not employing a lot of movement in his shots. Though it's used to perfect effect here, ratcheting up the terror by towing the audience along for the gruesome horror. Also, there's no orangutan.


'Warm Bodies' Trailer: Zombies Need Loving Too

The zombie genre gets reinvented for the better. I consider myself a zombie purist. They are shuffling, rotting, undead husks. They don't run. They don't climb. And they don't roll on Shabbos. But can they love? Yes, apparently. That's the questioned asked in this trailer for Warm Bodies which seems like a charming and inventive addition to the genre. This does for zombies what Edward Scissorhands did for freaky scissor-handed people. It's not the groanworthy Twilight-ification that we all expected. Just total fun and has John Malkovich and an undead Rob Corddry in addition to Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer in the lead roles of zombie and the girl who inspires his heart to beat again. Hate on it if you have to, but at least they aren't fast zombies.


Move Over Zombies, Dinosaurs Are Headed To Television

The Super Bowl showed us more than just robots, superheroes, pirates, aliens, topless Olivia Wilde, and douchebags. It also showed us which programs Fox hopes they won't have to cancel this fall. Dinosaurs, man. What if? That's the question that Steven Spielberg wants to ask (again). The Super Bowl showed us more than just robots, superheroes, pirates, aliens, topless Olivia Wilde, and douchebags. It also showed us which programs Fox hopes they won't have to cancel this fall. The network has teamed up with Spielberg to produce "Terra Nova," a show that sends a family 85 million years into the past to find the key to rebuild a deadened Earth. What they find instead are the leftovers from the Avatar set that James Cameron didn't have the heart to scrap. Waterfalls, rainforest, and Stephen Lang. But he may be playing a good guy this time as evidenced by his beard. All the best people throughout history had beards -- Darwin, Abraham Lincoln, Santa, Steven Spielberg, Kenny Rogers, writers during the Writers Strike, and your uncle who is perpetually struggling to get his landscaping business off the ground. You'll get there Uncle Mike. Just keep pruning. Just keep pruning.


Zombie 'Call Of Duty' Gives "Brains" To George Romero

There are a lot of zombie video games out there, but few with Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar and a killable George Romero. Check out the trailer. There are a lot of zombie video games out there. How do you differentiate yourself? You release a kickass, movie-esque viral trailer. Oh, that's already been done? Well... uh... it'll work again. Call Of Duty: Black Ops Escalation--Call of the Dead is an add-on that lets you play a zombie-killing game starring Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Michael Rooke and Robert Englund. They released a fun, Grindhouse-style trailer above, complete with retro titles, film burn effect and a voice over that sounds right on the zombie money. George Romero stars as a zombie boss, which I guess is a nice homage to the genre creator, although... I dunno. It'd be like playing a Star Wars game where a main boss is George Lucas. Hilarious, but anti-climactic, cause it takes you out of the game. Still, there's the catharsis factor.


'Fear The Walking Dead' Teases Its First Zombie

Unless it isn't. AMC is giving us another little nibble of Fear the Walking Dead. Unlike our first looks that showed us a man running for his life and a kid discussing the legitimacy of bloggers, this new look shows us what might be our first look at a walker. Or else just some drunk guy dressed as Raiden from Mortal Kombat. If it is in fact a walker, this is a really encouraging preview. In all the chatter about the show, nobody ever mentioned zombies wearing funny hats. That adds a whole new level that's been sorely missing from the original series.


Zombie Game Trailer Is An Elegant Tearjerker

The sad music, the narrative told in reverse, the slow motion, the solid direction, the heartstrings pulled - is it too late to put this in the Best Shorts category at the Oscars this year? Normally we don't post about video games, unless someone is ruining our favorite game by turning it into a horrible movie. However, this trailer for Techland's Dead Island is surprisingly cinematic. It definitely stands out from the bloody, mindless horde of zombie games looking to scoop out your braaaaains... (and the cash from your wallet.) The sad music, the narrative told in reverse, the slow motion, the solid direction, the heartstrings pulled - is it too late to put this in the Best Shorts category at the Oscars this year? Damn it, that was kind of a bummer, though. Why weren't there any badass plants around to help that poor family? Video games have taught me that plants are the natural enemy of zombies, so if I were running Dead Island, I'd get some emergency gardeners in there pronto. The game's official release date has not yet been announced. (Moviefone)
