This year, we’ve welcomed a lot of new writers to our home video review team and wanted them to get in on the year-end list action. The really neat thing about their picks is that out of all the submissions, nobody chose the same films for either category – plenty o’ variety on these lists. Check past the break for Patrick Cooper, Lauren Taylor, and Michael Erb’s Best & Worst Horror Films of 2012! READ MORE

Think about every piece of zombie media to come out in the last decade. Consider the moments, ideas, and characters that made those zombie stories memorable. Now, imagine what it’s like to see every one of those things haphazardly strung together into something resembling a story. That mess is Dead Season.
A zombie apocalypse survivor calling himself Elvis is making his way toward the ocean. He coordinates with fellow survivor Tweeter over a ham radio to meet up and journey together to an island off the coast of Florida. The idea is to go to a remote island where there can’t be many zombies, if any at all. They get a boat and find a tropical paradise that, of course, is far more disturbing once they get to land. The duo is saved by a group of survivors, led by a grizzled man named Kurt Conrad. The inhabitants come together to gather supplies, kill the undead, and generally try to survive. However, once food becomes scarce, they see that man is the real monster. READ MORE
Dead Season tells the story of two post-zombie outbreak survivors, Elvis and Tweeter, as they escape America to find a safe haven on a tropical island. Upon arriving, they are forced to deal with a newly formed community that is anything but civil.
Get ready for more brain-munching mayhem as Bloody Disgusting was given the exclusive trailer premiere for Dead Season, which is now screening for buyers in both New York and Los Angeles.
“A year after the dead have risen and decimated the world’s population, two survivors escape to a safe haven on a deserted island, only to discover that it’s just as deadly as where they came from.”
Starring Scott Peat, Marissa Merrill, James. C. Burns, Corsica Wilson, Marc Fusco, Todd Pritchett, Grant Beijon, Greg Weisman and Jordan Graham, Dead Season is a zombie action flick shot on a deserted island in the Caribbean. From up and comer helmer Adam Deyoe and producer Loren Semmens, Dead Season currently is searching worldwide distribution. Producer of The Woman, Andrew van den Houten, is currently repping the film.
