petty slim pickings this week, with only one real horror release on dvd (SHADOWLAND) and nothing on netflix watch instantly. that’s to be expected, as any real horror release would have rushed to be released in october. hopefully things will pick up in a few weeks, but until then… well, i guess we’ll just have to be happy with there being another TWILIGHT film to make fun of (and it’s inevitable rifftrax to purchase).
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
The third film in the Twilight series explores a love triangle between Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson), and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) as the werewolf pack and the Cullen clan join together to fight a new breed of vampires. Melissa Rosenberg provides the screenplay for the Summit Entertainment adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling novel, with director David Slade calling the shots behind the camera. Bryce Dallas Howard joins the cast as Victoria, the role originally played by Rachelle Lefevre in the first film.
Vampires Suck (2010)
The comedy masterminds behind Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Meet the Spartans drive a squeaky rubber stake through the heart of the Twilight series with this irreverent satire about a teenage girl who’s torn between two supernatural suitors. As Becca struggles to contend with her overbearing father, two fierce rivals compete to win her heart. But Becca isn’t the only high-school student having a hard time with boys; her friends are all desperate to find a date for the prom, and as the big night draws near, the rampant tension draws out the animals in everyone.
When a mysterious woman emerges from the earth during a church renovation, an employ of the church sets out to track her down and reveal her for what she truly is – a bloodthirsty vampire. Under a starlit sky, a woman named Laura crawls up from the mud. She’s been badly beaten; her throat has been cut, and she cannot speak. With no memory of the past to guide her, she ventures out into the city in search of food and clothes. Doing her best to blend in along the way, Laura begins to see small things that jog her memory — a historical marker here, a map there. Has she been reincarnated, or is she something beyond human?
