Slasher app wants your R-rated trailers

Let's face it, fans like their horror R rated. It's not that we're a bunch of bloodthirsty psychos (well, not all of us), but if you're going to make a scary movie, we don't want your vision compromised in any way. This is especially true in the indie-film world.

We're not just talking gore here either. The Conjuring films were R rated because of how scary they were. Yes, these are studio films. Just trying to make a point.

Marketing these R-rated films is another beast entirely. Often trailers are cut for as wide an audience as possible, which can hurt the vision of the finished film. Well, the Slasher app has put out a call for "Red Band trailers and beyond" in order to help filmmakers market their films honestly.

Slasher considers themselves a true alternative media solution for horror filmmakers, and wants to support those R-rated movies that sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

"When filmmakers are out marketing their films and get roadblocked by various social networks, it's disheartening," a spokesperson for Slasher said.

This happened to Jen and Sylvia Soska last year, when the filmmakers were locked out of their Twitter account for posting marketing material for their Rabid remake. Shame!

"There is nothing worse than putting your heart and soul into making a movie, and then not being able to advertise it properly due to someone thinking it's not politically correct or some nonsense," the spokesperson said.

"Screw that! Bring out your horror and let us connect you to the world!"

How? Easy! Interested filmmakers can contact Yup, it's that simple.

The Slasher app is available now at Apple App Store and Google Play

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

From The Basement - the "final" three

Just a gentle reminder From The Basement returns next Friday -- June 11 -- to the mighty Radio NL with an all-new episode! That's the good news. The bad news it'll be the first of our final three prime-time shows. What, you might ask? Are you bastards quitting AGAIN!?!? No. No we're not. We learned our lesson the last time. Shawn and I's long-running show will return to being "just a podcast," and not adhering to any set broadcast schedule. Why, you ask? Our lives are becoming increasingly busy outside of The Basement, and it's getting harder for Shawn and I to keep up with the latest movies, TV shows and entertainment news. We'd rather cease our weekly duties than produce an inferior product. Simple as that. Much thanks to Howie Reimer and the Radio NL crew for hosting us the last three years, first as a Friday morning segment, then as a prime-time series. It's been a blast! Don't worry, we're not coasting on these last three episodes. T
