'Tis the Season for Nazi Dinosaurs

Humbug. I was trying to get one last review out before the Christmas break, but work has been more far demanding than accommodating over these last couple of weeks. Oh well. As this is probably my last post for 2010, I give you a trailer for an upcoming video game release that mixes a World War 2 shooter with dinosaurs because, y’know- Christmas. Happy holidays, all!

Know What Repels Sea Monsters?

I came across mention of the upcoming Irish monster movie, Grabbers, on and have to admit that I chuckled at the synopsis. From the site:

An idyllic remote Irish fishing village - replete with twinkly-eyed eccentric Waking Ned Devine characters - is invaded by enormous, tentacled creatures from the sea who are picking off the villagers one at a time. The inhabitants learn that the one thing the creatures don't like is alcohol, it makes people taste horrible, so they realize that in order to stay alive, they're going to have to get as pissed as possible.

You gotta give the filmmakers credit- drunks verses monsters is something that nobody has tackled yet. Apparently the film is wrapping up production in the next month, then plans to spend almost a year (!) on post-special effects.

Mega Shark Returns

Hey look! It’s the trailer for the latest adventure of Asylum’s incorrigible, prehistoric shark monster: Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus! Mind you, if this turns out to be anything like the previous outing, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, there’s a pretty decent chance that we're seeing all the best parts in the film. No Debbie Gibson this time around, though...
