Fresh off the Slab June 9, 2013: ‘World War Z’, ‘Insidious 2’, and ‘Grabbers’


Fresh off the Slab is back with news from huge budget films and maybe one or two that are  not such insane money pits. Take a peek. You might like it.

World War Z

Paramount has released another TV spot for World War Z. Starring Brad Pitt, World War Z is based on Max Brook’s book of the same name and revolves around the impending zombie apocalypse. This spot is called ‘Aggression’ for obvious reasons. See the synopsis and clip below:

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.


Insidious 2

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming sequel to Insidious. While it is slated to be rated PG-13, it looks like the team of James Wan and Leigh Whannell are still aiming to scare the hell out of us.

The haunted Lambert family seeks to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.



Scheduled to be released on July 19th, Grabbers is an upcoming creature feature that will be available on VOD, Amazon, iTunes, Zune, etc. I don’t know about you, but I love the poster art. Check it out below.

Ciarán O’Shea, the handsome though washed up policeman of sleepy Erin Island, has a daily routine consisting mainly of hanging out at the pub with the local drunks and various other charmingly eccentric characters. But his day is about to go horribly wrong.

Teamed up with the unwanted help of Lisa – an uptight workaholic policewoman from the Irish mainland – they suddenly find themselves dealing with dead whales, decapitated fishermen and weird alien creatures or “grabbers”. Like a giant squid with tentacles, fanged jaws and a three-foot barbed tongue, they’re making mincemeat of the locals.

Faced with another imminent attack, O’Shea and Lisa figure out that the only person to survive the last onslaught only did so because he was so drunk his blood was literally toxic to the monsters. So there is only one thing for it: They have to get the entire village as drunk as possible in order to survive the night … a task that the villagers apply themselves to with gusto.

But one person must remain sober so for the first time in years O’Shea has to face up to things without a drink. When things don’t go to plan, an extremely drunk Lisa and a very sober O’Shea have to reconcile their differences and somehow save the day.
