No big studio films this week, but there are plenty of indie choices to take a look it. On the TV front “The Fades,” a BBC themed horror show, is now out on DVD and Blu. It’s good. Believe. I haven’t seen anything else on the list, but am curious about Inkubus, the latest Robert Englund flick. It’s garnered some attention as it’s being lauded as return to the nasty and sadistic for Englund. Are you picking up anything this week? Horror In Your House

BONG OF THE DEAD – Horizon Motion Pictures
When meteorites from outer space cause an all out zombie outbreak, the world is left desolate with only a few survivors. Tommy and Edwin are a pair of stoner buddies who keep themselves occupied by growing and smoking as much pot as humanly possible. One day they discover that by using zombie brains as fertilizer, they are able to grow a strain of super potent weed. In order for them to be able to keep a constant surplus of pot, they must find more zombies. Together they embark on a road trip in search of zombies, but end up finding more than they bargained for in this hilarious action adventure comedy. There will be bud!
THE FADES (DVD/Blu-ray) – BBC Warner
Seventeen-year-old Paul (Ian De Caestecker, Coronation Street) is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that neither his therapist nor his best friend and fellow geeky social outcast Mac (Daniel Kaluuya, Skins, Sucker Punch) can provide answers for. Worse still, Paul has started to see the Fades – spirits of the dead – all around him when they are not supposed to be sensed at all by ordinary human beings. And as if that is not enough, an embittered and vengeful Fade finds a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living, placing Paul and Mac, with their friends and family, right in the eye of the storm. Soon the fate of humanity rests in the hands of two teenagers who already have enough trouble getting through a day in one piece, let alone saving the world…
MICAH SAYS: After watching an episode on BBC America I was instantly sold. It’s dark and funny (especially for horror nerds). With lines like, “My only friend is either a lunatic or Heather Langenkamp” you can’t go wrong.
INKUBUS– Screen Media
Upon the discovery of a grisly murder, a team of police working the graveyard shift are terrorized by the mysterious arrival of the century-old demon Inkubus. During their gruesome and violent battle, a detective realizes the demon has returned from his past, intent on settling a score. Starring horror icon Robert Englund, Inkubus is a spine-tingling fright fest where the powers of good and evil are put to the test.
OUTCAST– Bloody Disgusting Selects / Vivendi Entertainment
OUTCAST unmasks an ancient Celtic society, where black magic and witchery exist. Mary is a woman on the run, harboring a dark history.
