The Cellar Door (2007) - News Poster


Official UK trailer for ‘Bloody Muscle Builder in Hell’

  • Nerdly
The cellar door has been opened and the official UK trailer for comedy horror Bloody Muscle Builder in Hell (aka The Japanese Evil Dead) has escaped! Trapped inside a haunted house, a body builder battles a gruesome ghost, hell-bent on revenge in Shinichi Fukazawa’s tongue-in-cheek splatter comedy. Originally released in Japan as The Japanese Evil Dead, Bloody Muscle Builder in Hell is an affectionate tribute to Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead films, featuring an incompetent, square-jawed anti-hero and grungy stop-motion effects.

After a surprise phone call interrupts his daily workout, beefy body builder Shinji agrees to meet his photojournalist ex-girlfriend to help with her research on haunted houses. Accompanied by a professional psychic, they visit an abandoned house once owned by Shinji’s father. But inside the house a dark secret lingers and they find themselves trapped and tormented by a relentless ghost with a 30 year grudge …

Six New Contenders for Top Albums of 2013

As much as I lamented the demise of quality album releases in 2013, the last few months have restored my faith in the bands releasing worthwhile long-players. The following are all contenders to make my year's end top ten list. And I suspect I'll find a few more late entries, as well.

"Back to the River" Lily & Madeleine - Lily & Madeleine (Asthmatic Kitty)

The teenage Jurkiewicz sisters hail from Indiana but boast a sparse, urban sophistication that feels more like classic NYC nu folk. Credit to their producer/arranger/co-songwriter Kenny Childers. Nary a weak track on their debut. The perfect Miley Cyrus antidote; share it with your teenage sons and daughters.

"Ode to the Summer" Syd Arthur On and On (Harvest)

Prog is back! I picked them as contenders way back in January; finally their debut CD gets a stateside release today! This young U.K.-based quartet -- guitar,

Must-Watch Music Video: The Underachievers Pen A ‘Smoker’s Anthem’

Ever wonder what N.A.S.A. stands for? Me neither. However, Brooklyn rap group The Underachievers have an answer. Their latest video for 'N.A.S.A (New Age Smoker’s Anthem)' is a free flowing stand out jam from their latest mixtape Lords of Flatbush. The buzzy Brooklyn group has been steadily gaining speed and attention ahead of their highly anticipated album The Cellar Door, which has yet to receive a release date but is likely to drop via Brainfeeder. The new video should whet your appetite ahead of the new record, and some upcoming tour dates along side the Pro Era crew are likely to feature new songs as well. The clip is a straight up performance of the hook heavy summer jam. It is shot in and around the borough they call home, aka the county of Kings. Their Flatbush, Brooklyn neighborhood is as much

Set Visit: Evil Dead Remake with Jane Levy and Lou Taylor Pucci

Set Visit: Evil Dead Remake with Jane Levy and Lou Taylor Pucci
We visit with stars Jane Levy and Lou Taylor Pucci, along with director Fede Alvarez, on the set of Evil Dead

Evil Dead is another in a long line of horror remakes that no one seemed to want. Then it was announced that original director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell, who became a cult legend playing Ash in the first three films, were attached as producers and creative consultants. Fans of the original stopped groaning a little tiny bit and decided to approach this incoming "abomination" with a bit of optimism. Then, after a strong presence at this past summer's San Diego Comic Con and a very gory Red Band trailer, it was fully on. Gore hounds and slasher aficionados became very enthusiastic, and were inspired by the bright, wet redness shellacking this complete rewrite of the original franchise. As evidenced by the first onslaught of footage, this Evil Dead isn't messing about.

Halloween Memories: Michelle Tomlinson

Actress Michelle Tomlinson is best known as the star of The Cellar Door and Kevin S. Tenney's recent zombies-from-space romp, Brain Dead. She is also a devoted Halloween fan, although she's been too busy lately to enjoy it as she once did. But in years past, Michelle was the Queen of Halloween.

"I have dressed up as so many kooky things, and used to love going to Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood with the throngs of humans and getting wild and crazy," Michelle told me recently. "I think it's an awesome excuse to get dressed up and be outside of yourself and be silly!"

For the record, I can personally attest to Michelle's love affair with all things October 31. I've known her for a while now and I can recount many Halloweens where I received unintelligible midnight texts containing bizarre photos of Michelle, clad in various outrageous costumes

Au Revoir, Les Enfants Du CriterionCast or How Travis Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Tourbus [CriterionCast News]

Dearest CriterionCast listeners,

If you haven’t heard through pensive whisperings, in Ustream, or in our latest episodes, Episode 29 and 29.5 will be my last appearances on our podcast for a few months. In my personal life (rather, in that minuscule part in which I am not in front of a movie or television or computer screen), I am making a big move from Portland, Oregon and back to North Carolina from whence I came. My motivations are in very large part for family, but I will have added bonuses of warm weather, sweet tea, and good ol’ Southern hospitality.

As a last hurrah to the Pacific Northwest, though, I will be leaving on tour with my good friends in Horse Feathers (who are featured in our main episodes’ closing music). We’ll be all over the United States and Canada for quite a few weeks, so if we are in your area,

Behind Your Eyes Gets a Director Behind the Camera

The home invasion thriller with a twist, Behind Your Eyes, has finally landed itself a director to bring this captive tale of terror to life.

According to Bloody Disgusting Clint Lien will be stepping behind the camera and working from a screenplay by Daniel Fanaberia.

Details are still on the scant side at the moment. Sadly, all we've been able to dig up on the flick at this time is this log line:

"A young couple on a weekend trip to meet family are kidnapped and held prisoner by a psychopath until one of them escapes."

Behind Your Eyes is being produced by by TriCoast Studios (The Cellar Door), and casting is now under way in La. Keep it here for more as it comes.

Thriller Behind Your Eyes Now Casting

Kidnappings can be a harrowing experience. Just think of how helpless you would feel if some crazy or group of crazies decided that there would be nothing finer than capturing you and your significant others, killing them before your eyes, and making you wait those long seconds before you're offed yourself. True, that is the worst case scenario, but it's frighteningly possible.

There have been many recent films that have dealt with this plot device with varying degrees of success so the question beckons -- are you ready for another? Enter Behind Your Eyes. Details are scant at the moment. Sadly, all we've been able to dig up on the flick at this time is this log line:

"A young couple on a weekend trip to meet family are kidnapped and held prisoner by a psychopath until one of them escapes."
