Fresh off the Slab June 29, 2013: ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Rigor Mortis’, and ‘The Conjuring’


Fresh off the Slab is back after zombies invaded the big screen with the advent of World War Z. In its opening weekend, it raked in S60 million domestic and about $49 million in foreign markets. Even with all of that, the movie was still beat out by Monsters University in the box office. So, why does this matter? Well, horror and kids horror are flooding media and it’s time for us all to rejoice. Here is some of the newest Sci-fi and horror movie news! Hope you enjoy and you should leave me a comment! Or else I’ll be the one grabbing you by the ankles and dragging you under your bed.

Pacific Rim

New featurette and clips have been posted for the upcoming Del Toro film, Pacific Rim. Starring Ron Pearlman and Charlie Hunnam, Pacific Rim is set to be released in theaters on July 12.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.


Rigor Mortis

A new trailer has been released for the Chinese vampire film, Rigor Mortis. Take a look at the synopsis and trailer and let me know what you think!

RIGOR MORTIS stars action movie veteran Chin Siu-ho (Siu-ho) as a former vampire hunting actor who now finds himself reaching the end of the line as a washed-up star, separated from his wife and alienated from his son. Down on his luck and with barely a dollar to his name, he checks into Room 2442 in the housing estate, an allegedly haunted flat. His aim is to end his misery by doing himself in, but instead Siu-ho is interrupted by some of the other “occupants” of the building including a Taoist master-exorcist (Anthony Chan), a traumatized housewife with a tragic past (Kara Hui), as well as a seemingly benign elderly woman (Paw Hee-ching) who has an empty coffin conspicuously hanging in the middle of her apartment. Soon it becomes apparent to Siu-ho that the people around him and the situation are far from normal. Despite his lack of belief in superstition, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the battle of his life as vicious vampires with unsettled business begin to rise from the dead…”

The Conjuring

I don’t know about you all, but I am really excited to The Conjuring. Ed and Lorraine Warren visited my college two years running to present a seminar on Demonology. It pretty much scared the hell out of me. So when I heard what this movie is about, I did a horror nerd’s dance of glee. With this being based on a true story (I know, I know), I’m even more enthused. Take a look at the trailer and synopsis below!

Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

So, who’s going to see the movie with me?
