There's a low-budget "aliens and zombies in the 'hood" movie called Race War coming out in 2011 that's based on a short film about, well, aliens and zombies in the hood. The short (see below) a lighthearted effort that channels Blaxploitation-era racial commentary (The Man keepin' a brotha down) and features some surprisingly good gore effects. Check out more at the production company's website.

SFX Magazine's awesome new horror special edition features not only new and upcoming releases, but it also packs in great historical showcases on Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Wolf Man, The Evil Dead, The Thing, The Wicker Man, Spanish horror and yes, BLAXPLOITATION HORROR! Six full-color paged devoted to the likes of Blacula, Sugar Hill, Abby, Dr. Black Mr. Hyde, J.D.'s Revenge and (eesh) Blackenstein. Very cool stuff. Check out the details here. I'm sure it's a lot easier to find in the UK than it is in the US, but check around in bookstores or take a flight across the pond. I hear it's lovely over there this time of year. (Not really.)

As glad as I am to see Ken Foree headlining a movie, the upcoming D.C. Sniper is yet another shitty "based on a real-life serial killer" film (see also Black Dahlia and about a dozen others) from Ulli Lommel, AKA the poor man's Uwe Boll. Catch it -- like a virus -- when it hits DVD on March 16, 2010.

Two pieces of good news:

  1. Despite the scarcity of updates lately, I'm not dead. Yay!
  2. The long-awaited 7eventy 5ive, from actor Brian Hooks and director Deon Taylor (Nite Tales), is finally being released this week, three years after it was shot -- now with the less phonetically challenged title Dead Tone.
