You Will Chairish This New Trailer For ‘KILLER SOFA’!

Ignore my bad pun in the post title.  Or celebrate it.  Whichever.  But speaking of celebrating, oh how I have longed for the day where I would see a horror movie about a chair killing people.  Yes, the movie is called Killer Sofa.  But let’s be real, it’s a recliner.  A sofa recliner, perhaps – but a recliner/chair nonetheless.  Straight outta New Zealand, Killer Sofa actually looks……..good.  Here’s a quick synopsis before I hit you with the debut trailer:

Francesca always attracted weirdos. When one of her stalkers is found dead, she looks for comfort from her best friend, Maxi. Meanwhile, Maxi’s grandfather, Jack, a disgraced Rabbi, comes across a reclining chair containing a Dybbuk inside. Jack and his voodoo sorceress partner try to find out where the recliner has been delivered while exploring Jack’s newfound gift for communicating with the other world. Meanwhile the reclining chair becomes enchanted by Francesca and starts committing crimes of passion.

See?  Told you it actually looked good.  In a bad ‘recliner chair commits bloody crimes of passion‘ kind of way.  Killer Sofa shall not be winning any Oscars this year, but I think it’s pretty clear that it’s not going for any either.  I sort of miss these kinds of movies to be honest.  I mean, I just re-watched The Lift this past weekend (a Dutch 80’s horror movie about a killer elevator) and it tickled my horror bone.  So yeah, I’m in on Killer Sofa, which will hit DVD and On Demand in October.  And thanks to my girlfriend for pointing out the similarities between the murderous recliner in the movie and Chairry from Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

Scream Factory’s Got Worms! ‘Squirm’ Blu-ray Coming In October

Not many movies traumatized me as a kid, but Jeff Lieberman’s creepy-crawly 1976 flick Squirm definitely did.  I actually used to dig up worms in my backyard, but after seeing that movie – I scaled back on the digging due to being fearful a bunch of worms would somehow burrow into my face.

Even though it creeped me out, Squirm holds a special place in my heart and I always loved that Mystery Science Theatre 3000 chose it as one of it’s movies to highlight.  So it brings me great pleasure to announce that the amazing Scream Factory will be releasing Squirm on glorious Blu-ray some time in October!  Now you get to watch those worms in hi-def awesomeness and probably will get some sweet bonus features and commentary too.  Can’t help but think of this clip when I hear about worms btw……
