Just thought i'd share with you 2 cool looking films that are coming this march,
SOMEONE’S KNOCKING AT THE DOOR
ON DVD 7 MARCH 2011 DIRECTED BY Chad Ferrin“a unique, horrifying movie watching experience” - 28DaysLater “No-Holds-Barred Vision” - FANGORIA A PSYCHEDELIC TRIP INTO TERROR
In this genre-defying grind-house throwback, a group of drug-fueled, sexually deviant medical students are systematically terrorized by Wilma and John Hopper. The Hoppers, serial murderers and rapists, mysteriously return from the 1970s and bring horrifying psychedelia with them. With comedy, subversion, satire and true gore, the students must face escalating attacks, shocking circumstances and visceral disgust.
Inspirations for the film include counter-culture American icons such as Roger Corman, Russ Meyer and Dennis Hopper. Shock cinema, with a tongue-in-cheek, humorous attitude is a hallmark of independent cinema in the USA and SOMEONE’S KNOCKING AT THE DOOR brings that philosophy to a new generation of socially conscious and intellectual viewers. Satire of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll abounds, with a particular look at the US culture of consumption, the medical community and follies of youth. With a hip, youthful score and fringe dynamics, the film brings an avant-garde, contemporary spin to a classic genre.
ON DVD 7 MARCH 2011 WRITTEN & DIRECTED BY Larry Blamire

“..a hit to the funny bone” – HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Lost Skeleton has everything: Ed Wood would have loved this, and so did I!” – EFILMCRITIC
Remember the good old days when anyone with a camera, a few thousand bucks, and more ambition than talent could schlep up to Bronson Canyon and quickly make a cheap sci-fi/horror movie? Well, they're back! THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA is an affectionate, meticulous re-creation of those notoriously cheesy clunkers, as a gaggle of beloved stereotypes pursue "that rarest of all radioactive elements--atmosphereum."
Writer/Director Larry Blamire heads a superb cast--including Fay Masterson (Eyes Wide Shut), Brian Howe (Gran Torino), Andrew Parks (Donnie Brasco) and Jennifer Blaire (The Majestic)--that faced a daunting task: having to be brilliant and terrible at the same time!
The dialogue is marvelously insipid, and the music cuts in and out of the action with breathtaking suddenness. Aliens from Mars crash-land, setting loose a mutant, while a mad scientist re-awakens a talking skeleton that could hold the key to world domination, and don't forget Animala, a half-woman, half-animal beatnik! It's one of the most original, clever, and hilarious comedies to come along in eons of your Earth years--and became such a fan favourite that there's now a sequel...maybe two...
“….will delight psychotronic film fans; a parodic bull's-eye scored” – VARIETY.COM
“Armed with enough cliches to make Ed Wood proud” - San Francisco Chronicle
LARRY BLAMIRE COMES TO THE UK!
Though born in Liverpool, Larry Blamire, grew up in Massachusetts working as a scifi illustrator, then acted on stage, which led to writing and directing his own plays, plus occasional parts in TV, commercials and incredibly fascinating corporate videos. Combining a mighty lifelong love of movies, a visual sensibility, a vivid imagination, a streak of satirical wit, and the sharp eyes and kill-instinct of a seasoned hunter, Larry’s passion for all things 50s scifi emerged with a vengeance in THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA. Pulling a few elements from his play BRIDE OF THE MUTANT'S TOMB, CADAVRA manages to draw on cheapo scifi and horror and lets them collide in a bit of spoofery that seeks to be as authentic as it possibly can.
CADAVRA was seen at a screening at the Egyptian Theatre, which led to Sony Pictures distributing the movie in 2004, and a loyal cult following which has continued to grow ever since. Larry then formed Bantam Street a movie satire company but with a distinct difference and edge that went on to make further movies that have led to him achieving a cult status.
4Digital Media are delighted to be bringing Larry’s films to the UK, the first of which is The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, which will be followed the highly acclaimed sequel The Lost Skeleton Returns Again, and his spoof of 1930s mystery films, Dark and Stormy Night. Then for the first time on DVD anywhere, his Director’s cut of Trail of the Screaming Forehead.
