January is finally just about gone…. but there’s still time enough for one last quick look at some upcoming (I hope!!) movies soon to hit DVD…. and soon to be hunted down by yours truly!! So without further adieu, welcome Gentle Visitors, to the latest edition of “Neko’s Trailer Park Tuesdays”
No crazy genre movie escapes my ever vigilant searches for long…. and these are no exception!! 😉
Hurry, hurry!! There’s lots of new Trailers on tap for this time out….
First up… another “shaky cam” horror goodie for the Argentinian Zombie horror “Incidente”… which from a quick peek, seems to be fairly well inspired by the Spanish success of the “Rec” film series. It’s been out for a while, and is making the festival circuits now looking to create some buzz…. and hopefully that will add up to it’s appearance on DVD soon.
India is still in there kicking too… as is evidenced by the addition of yet another horror film to my list of upcoming “must sees”... with “Siyaah”. The first teaser is now floating around, and it’s got me interested enough to keep an eager lil’ eye peeled. Love my ghost stories…. 😉
Malaysia…. now they seem to really want in on the horror movie fun these days. There are quite a few coming up, but as to wether I’ll be able to actually snag them for my very own remains to be seen. Many never… ever… make it to DVD, instead showing up only on VCD for local viewing, minus English subs of course. Others do turn up, only to be missing those important subs for those of us less than fluent in Malay. But still… I keep an eager eye open and my wee lil’ fingers crossed as more and more make it every month. Up first on my list, “Sumpahan Kum Kum”.
Next…. the confusingly named “Keramat”…. Confusing I say, as it has the same title as an Indonesian Horror film this wee Catgirl already acquired some time ago. Gotta hate when they recycle titles…. tends to help hide a film away from nosy lil’ kittens like me when I’m lookin’ for new ones. But not this time…. So there!!
Then there’s “Sesuatu Yang Tertinggal”…. which looks like some sort of “haunted kids” kind of thing. Or maybe “haunted mirror”…. (Told ya this wee kitten was a bit hampered by her lack of Malay language skill… ;)) Either way… it certainly looks like my kind of creepy film, so it’s on my list.
Any more? Well… if there’s anything the Malay film audience likes more than their scary ghosts… it’s scary ghost comedies…. Like this new one, “Hantu Dalam Botol Kicap”. Lets see…. risque sexy humor, shamanism, broad slapstick, and possession…. Yep. Seems like it’s all there all right. Guess I won’t be able to pass that one up either.
“But Neko?”, I hear you all saying…. “Ummmm?…. Don’t you watch any of those goofy Indonesian horror movies anymore?” Why yes…. yes I do. The problem I have is finding them since my favorite domestic DVD source for those crazy films went into “Internet Limbo” and closed up shop last year. But… I still keep my eyes open, and it seems that our old friend Dewi Perssik still wants to be a movie star. To get there she’s willing to star in just about anything…. even a nutty Indonesian Mermaid horror movie… I kid you not!! “Arwah Kuntilanak Duyung” to be exact. So will I watch it? Sigh…. yes…. I probably will… if I can find it, that is. (Gosh darn it…. I’m such a geeky wee goof for these silly movies…. ;))
Well…. that’s certainly a sizable chunk of video Trailer goodness for now, and ought to give you plenty to look for if you too are also the bad movie fanatic that a certain silly lady seems to be…. So until next time, keep your own eyes peeled for video goodies and, “Meow, meow for now!!”
