When a SyFy original (Behemoth) is the most recognizable film, by a mile, for a release week you know it’s a slow week. Painfully slow. Honestly, there is nothing worth mentioning out of any of the releases for this first week of April. It’s mostly comprised of nearly no budget flicks. Maybe there is a gem in there, maybe not. But I’m not gonna drop money on something that I’ve never heard of nor can I find any legitimate reviews on. I’m skipping everything this week and catching up on Netflix Instant (which has released a ton of good horror in the last couple weeks). If you don’t have Netflix, then I am truly sorry for you. You’ll just have to deal, but you are probably use to that by now anyway. Have a nice week everyone.

ZOMBIE DOOMSDAY – Gawid Entertainment
This live action, improvisational style movie was filmed in just 12 hours and is sure to delight Zombie fans around the world. Zombie Doomsday is more of an actual live scenario than a low budget independent feature film. It’s a very intriguing look at what would happen if there was an actual Zombie outbreak. The concept was developed two weeks before filming and on set production was completed in under 12 hours. The actors were put in a restaurant understanding that a down on his luck movie star was coming back to his hometown to film a reality show. We then set up real events (unknown ahead of time to the actors) that would help carry the story. Some events turned out scary to them while other events were comedic. This film is part Zomedy, and part scary movie.
