Sink your tiny fish teeth into the leaked Piranha 3-Dtrailer. See Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames — and even Richard Dreyfuss — paddle for their lives from a pack of prehistoric piranha. Plus the flu cure creates zombies. Of course.
Elisabeth Shue joins Sliders' Jerry O'Connell, Eli Roth, Ed Westwick, Jessica Szohr and tons of other amazing actors to fight off a pack of hungry piranhas that are totally ruining this year's Spring Break wet T-shirt contest. The trailer for this classic B-horror gem has leaked, and it's making us hungry for evil fish. So far, so good — let's keep our fingers crossed that this film ushers in a new era of respect for bad/good gore films. Piranha 3D will be in theaters April 16.
And if that's not enough here's a clip of O'Connell impersonating that Girl's Gone Wild D-bag.
Why is it every time we humans try to cure anything from cancer to the flu, we always end up making zombies instead? I'm counting down the days until it's revealed that the H1N1 shots are, in fact, zombie-making elixirs. Then who will be coughing, sneezing and throwing-up laughing? This little low-budget film shows us all what happens when the cure for the flu turns out to be the end of humanity. It's pretty sharp looking — we promise it's not "just another" zombie indie.
The Dungeon Masters
We've heard about this little project, which made waves at SXSW and Toronto. The Dungeon Masters is a documentary about a few die hard D&D fans, and what happens when life interferes with the fantasy world they've created. The entire documentary will be released on Amazon in February — check it out.
An evil drow elf is displaced by Hurricane Katrina. A sanitation worker lures friends into a "Sphere of Annihilation." A failed super-villain starts a cable-access show involving ninjas, puppets and a cooking segment. These are the characters, real and imagined, of Keven McAlester's documentary THE DUNGEON MASTERS. Against the backdrop of crumbling middle-class America, two men and one woman devote their lives to Dungeons and Dragons, the storied role- playing game, and its various descendants. As their baroque fantasies clash with mundane real lives, the characters find it increasingly difficult to allay their fear, loneliness, and disappointment with the game's imaginary triumphs. Soon the true heroic act of each character's real life emerges, and the film follows each as he or she summons the courage to face it. Along the way, THE DUNGEON MASTERS re-imagines the tropes of classic heroic cinema, creating an intimate portrait of minor struggles and triumphs writ large.
Keven McAlester was born in New Haven, Connecticut; grew up in Dallas, Texas; and graduated from Harvard University. THE DUNGEON MASTERS is his second feature. His first film, YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME, won the jury prize at AFI's Silverdocs festival, and was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2006 Independent Spirit Awards. His other recent work includes "Seven Plus or Minus Two," a short film installation now showing at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin; and music videos for Spoon, the New Year, and Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. He's also currently producing a documentary by director Rory Kennedy for HBO. He lives in Los Angeles and New York.
