REC4 trailer

The trailer for REC4 looks pretty good. The first REC was a great twist on the zombie film and found footage films. REC2 & 3 were enjoyable. Part 4 looks like it is set on a ship.

Joe Lansdale's Cold In July

One of my favorite authors of the last 20 years is Joe Lansdale. He has written novels and short stories in practically every genre, but in the 90's he was most famous for his horror and crime novels. He is a prolific short story writer. One of his short stories was adapted in to the movie Bubba Ho-Tep. Now one of his early novels, Cold In July has been adapted in to a feature film, by Jim Mickle. It has a great cast, Michael C. Hall, Don Johnson, and Sam Shepard. I hope that the film gets a theatrical release but it will be available on VOD on May 23rd.
