April will see two gory movies that I've been waiting on for some time.
Director - Fede Alvarez
Writers - Fede Alvarez and Diablo Cody
Staring - Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore
Plot - Five friends head to a remote cabin in the woods and find The Book of the Dead.
This movie is a remake of Sam Rami's and Bruce Campbell's 1981 low budget cult classic. Both Sam and Bruce are producers. I am a fan of the original and if you ever have the chance to get your hands on the DVD I suggest watching it with the commentary. It's hilarious! I wasn't so much looking forward to seeing this movie, but the trailer looks pretty interesting, so I'll give it a watch.
Director - Rob Zombie
Writer - Rob Zombie
Staring - Sheri Moon Zombie
Plot - 300 year old coven of witches return to Salem.
While I'm not usually a fan of the gratuitous violence that Rob Zombie brings in his movies, he always seems to entertain me. Many people will again complain about RZ casting his wife in the lead and I tend to agree, but I'll still eventually end up with this movie on my DVD shelf.
