Drunken Zombie Film Festival November 6-8, 2009

The horror podcast Drunken Zombie will be hosting a horror film festival this November. That means they’re looking for some of the best independent horror films they can find to screen. So if you have a horror masterpiece you’d love to screen or know someone who does have them stop by their website and click on the DZFF09 page to find out how to submit your film. They’ll be screening at the Peoria Theater in Peoria, IL. The Peoria Theater offers a great alternative screening atmosphere with a full bar along with your usual theater concessions.

This is the second annual Drunken Zombie screening but is actually the first year it was been a full blown film festival. Last year they screened the great indie horror films IT’S MY PARTY AND I’LL DIE IF I WANT TO and had the world premiere of ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. They had a great turn out and everyone enjoyed themselves. Now they have a full weekend full of horror greatness. So mark your calendars and make sure you are ready to see some of the great indie horror films they will be presenting.

The Hangover

Awesome movie.  Not for the kiddies.  But is a mustsee.

I finally got around to watching this and regret not seeing it opening weekend with a crowded audience.

The plot is very simple.  4 guys go to Vegas for a night on the town before one of them gets married.  We see them toast to a night they will never forget.  Cut to the next day where 3 of them wake up and do not remember a thing about last night.  Including where the groom is.  The movie revolves around them re-tracing their steps trying to find their friend before his wedding.

Throw in a baby, a tiger, a missing tooth and a naked asian man in the trunk of their car for good measure.

I do not want to spoil any of this movie.  Go see it.

Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

Went to see the new Transformers movie.

It’s ok, not great or anything.  But if you go into it with zero expectations then you probably will not be disappointed.

*Spoilers below*

This movie takes place 2 years after the first one with Sam about to enter college.  Now for some reason, he chose a college that does not allow freshman parking.  If I had a robot car, I think that would be something to look for.  We see that the military is working with the autobots take down decepticons.  And we are introduced to some new autobots: Sideswipe, ReeCee, and the twins (I forget their names)
