Warm Bodies

Killer Joe

Red band trailer has been released in conjuction with the VOD/DVD release of Killer Joe. 

Based on the play by Tracy Letts, the film follows a hapless young man (Emile Hirsch), already up to his neck in trouble, who hires a cop by day, hitman by night (an excellent Matthew McConaughey) to kill his monther for the insurance money. Unable to pay the fee upfront, he puts his sister (Juno Temple) down as collateral, and so begins a twisted tale that gets even more out there with each turn of the plot. (Synopsis from Arrow in the Head)


The Butterfly Room

A trailer has been released for The Butterfly Room, a movie starring a plethora of scream queens the caliber of Barbara Steele, Heather Langenkamp, Erica Leerhsen, PJ Soles, Adrienne King, Camille Keaton, and more.

Alice is an eleven-year-old girl who entices women in their sixties; by trickeries she makes friend with them, until becoming the cure for their “empty nest syndrome”. And once she’s become part of their lives, once they can’t live without her, she benefits by asking for tips that gradually become actual fees. A small price to pay to feel like mothers again… But one day she meets the wrong lady. One day she meets Ann. And she disappears.

Ann is a lonely lady; she lives with her collection of butterflies and her memories from the past, memories of Alice as well, whom she misses much… But Ann is also a very busy lady. She’s busy throwing quicklime and acid in an elevator shaft, to make a body disappear; she’s busy with that handyman and his assistant who know too much and need to be taken care of … and her daughter Dorothy, whom she’s never seen again after something horrible happened when she was a kid. Something that Ann has desperately tried to bury in her past, a ghost that Alice, with her malicious behavior might have evoked. And there’s the banging coming from the butterfly room…

Next to Ann’s door lives Claudia, a recently divorced, attractive single mother, struggling with her newfound independence. Claudia asks Ann to tend her daughter, Julie, for a weekend. Will Julie discover what happened to Alice? Will Dorothy realize something wrong is going on soon enough to spare other kids what she went through? And what’s in the butterfly room? (synopsis from Arrow in the Head)
