I feel like I've been waiting a long time to write that headline. This week, meet Dogoo Girl and her magical crime-fighting breasts (They glow!). Next up, the first clip from Romero's next zombie movie and an Aswang attack.
Here's the trailer for the Japanese TV Show The Amazing Dogoo Girl, from the wonderfully terrible minds who brought us Tokyo Gore Police and Robo Geisha. I'm not sure what I love more about the new TV show: the evil coy transforming lady, who is later seen in full-out make-out fish mode with another character, or the bee-breasts picture above. This isn't the first time we've seen super-powered lady parts being used for fighting crime, but it may be the first time I've heard about it on television. Hey, as long as you're using your lumps for justice, I'm behind you, Dogoo Girl!
(Thanks for the tip, Robert.)
Next up is the first clip from George Romero's Survival of The Dead, which will be screening at Toronto for the lucky folks in Canada. I'm still not sure how I feel about this film, but I am happy to see the master tackling the much talked about zombie fishing scenario. Check it out...
Twitch has the first trailer for Filipino monster movie based around the legend of the aswang, a beast that feeds on the insides of humans. As far as I can tell, it's your standard monster fare: people stuck in a building with the big bad, and trying to escape while being picked off one by one in the dark. But according to a very quick Google image search, the Aswang looks like the pictures below, which is a winged vampire beast with boobs, so that's Patient X one, Relic, zero.
Also from Twitch, which is a great place for Toronto Film festival updates I may add, are a slew of new clips from the Under the Mountain movie. The picture (which was actually an old TV series) stars a pair of twins that discover a freaky scary as hell alien race underground, then Dr. Grant shows up to help out. I've included a few of the clips from the upcoming premiere at TIFF. Jonathan King, who directed Black Sheep, is the brains behind this New Zealand film.
Here's the official synopsis:
When teenage twins Rachel and Theo Matheson investigate the creepy old house next door, they discover the Wilberforces - shape-shifting creatures that lurk beneath Auckland's ring of extinct volcanoes. Guided by the mysterious Mr Jones and with the help of their older cousin Ricky, the twins must rekindle the unique powers they once shared if they are to destroy this ancient evil - before it destroys them.
And if you don't remember the TV series....well here's that as well....
