Nazi zombies attack in Overlord trailer

For some reason, the whole idea of Nazi zombies just doesn't get old. It was used to great -- and some times comedic -- effect in two Dead Snow movies. And now J.J. Abrams is bringing the scares and gore in the upcoming period horror flick Overlord.

Overlord, for the record, was the code name for the D-Day invasion of Normandy by Allied troops in World War 2. Just so you get the reference here.

The Animated Addict: "The Secret Life of Pets" (2016)

Have you ever wondered what your pets get up to while your gone?  I have, so I figured "The Secret Life of Pets" might be entertaining...

Max the terrier has the perfect life: a warm bed, free food, and a loving human.  Then his human gets a second dog... a large shaggy one named Duke.  During their struggle to determine dominance, they find themselves lost in the city.  Now, they must team up to find their way home...

Some behind-the-scenes pics from The Proposal

Cameras are officially rolling on the upcoming action short The Proposal, written and produced by our man John Fallon and starring actor/producer/martial artist Marc Natoli.

In fact, the shoot is a couple of days and change old at this point, which means it's high time to share a few behind-the-scenes shots for your eye holes.

From the Corner: "Death on Demand" (2011)

When I buy my horror box sets, I expect plenty of low budget horror movies.  I expect a fair number of bad ones.  I expect fewer decent ones.  I expect even fewer jewels.

"Death on Demand" definitely wasn't one of those jewels.

First look at Godzilla: King of the Monsters

I'm a hard-core Godzilla fan. I even have a tattoo of the King of the Monsters on my right leg. Love the classic Toho films. Love the 2014 version by Gareth Edwards. The 1996 Matthew Broderick film?

... not so much.

District 9 director to helm RoboCop sequel

And we're not talking a sequel to the 2014 remake either. Nope! Neill Blomkamp will direct a sequel to the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic that starred Peter Weller and coined the phrase "I'd buy that for a dollar."

Sweetening the deal: the script for RoboCop Returns is by Michael Miner and Edward Neumeier, who penned the original film, with a polish by Justin Rhodes, who scripted the upcoming Terminator.

Insomniac Theatre: "14 Blades" (2010)

At one time or another, we have all been there- unable to sleep, flipping idly through the channels and creating our own story from the bits and fragments we catch between channel flips, until we come across a show or movie that makes us go, "Huh... this might be interesting."

Or in my case, flipping through my DVD/Blu-Ray collection.

Chicago Fire, Ray Donovan star headlines Bronx SIU

We don't talk a lot of TV here in The Basement, but I figure it's high time that we do. TV, books, video games . . . it's all up for grabs from now on.

And that brings us to Bronx SIU (Special Investigations Unit), which hits UMC and Amazon Prime on July 19.
