It’s Friday!

Happy Friday Cult Labbers! The weekend is nearly here and soon you’ll be able to put your feet up, with a glass of whiskey on the rocks and enjoy a movie marathon in style. Before that, here is this week’s Cult Labs’ newsletter!

Watch out! There’s A Sharknado Coming!

Recently a UK weather warning has been announced. Torrential rain, gail-force wind (rather unpleasant of Gail!)  and hundreds of hungry man-eating killer sharks! From Hammerheads to Great White, grab your brolly and your chainsaw for the most awesomely bad movie of recent years. This is one of the most entertaining modern ‘cult’ films and the PERFECT movie to enjoy with friends, pizza and plenty of beer. It’s an absolute blast! If you have been dubious about the Sharknado craze, trust us you will love Sharknado 2. It’s utterly insane! Head on over to the official Facebook page for some great content and plenty of upcoming competitions too. Just watch out for any raining Basking sharks – those ones are the worst!

FrightFest Video

Whether you attended the UK’s greatest horror festival this year or not, you’ll enjoy this great video taken during the FrightFest celebrations. Cult Labs fan, Paul McHugh has put together an excellent collection of videos filmed at the festival. Check out his channel and re-live the fun!

Australia’s Most Twisted Killer Is Back!

In 2005, horror fans were treated to a modern classic of slasher cinema straight from the fiery heat, Down Under. Wolf Creek became a huge hit and one of the greatest slices of Ozploitation of the new millennium. Now, 9 years later the murderous maniac from the outback has returned with Wolf Creek 2. A runaway success at this year’s FrightFest, Wolf Creek not only delivers the nerve-shattering tension and scares of the original, but crams in gallons of gore, a very impressive body count quite possibly the greatest horror villain this year. An absolute must see for fans of Ozploitation and slasher movies (especially those manage to terrify yet still be hugely entertaining and fun to watch). It’s out now on DVD and Blu-ray and comes highly recommended from Cult Labs. Head here for all the info.

Forget Dirty Harry! It’s All About Dirty Hairy Now…

From one FrightFest hit to another. Wolfcop was one of our favourite films of the festival and we know cult fans will be in cult heaven with this film. Sharing a similar tone to the simply awesome Hobo With A Shotgun, Wolfcop will have you howling with laughter – it’s insane! Winner of Total Film’s “Best Penis Trauma” award and artwork by Cult Labs’ fave The Dude Designs, you can’t go wrong with this one. Head over here for more info! Win yourself some great Wolfcop goodies by entering our competition. Simply take your best werewolf-esque selfie and tweet it for a chance of winning. Good luck!

Best Of The Labs

The Cult Labs’ forum has been busy with so many great discussions this week. Here’s some of our faves. Click the link and join in the chit-chat…

  • Suzi Gina’s Transgender Thread - The lovely Suziginajackson has recently set up a great thread on the forum dedicated to Transgender movies. From Some Like It Hot to the hilariously awful Glen Or Glenda. What movies can you add to the list?
  • 50 Weirdest MoviesGag has shared a fantastic article packed with the 50 weirdest movies ever made. The usual are on there, but there’s a huge amount of obscure rarely-seen weird movies on the list too, that you may not even have heard of!
  • And they say VHS is dead… - Is it? Sure hardly any new VHS are released these days and everyone is obsessed with high-def, but we’d say that nostaligic format is still alive and kicking. It can’t die! Heck, I even collect Videodiscs! From pre-certs to childhood faves, direct-to-video-nasties and even VHS ‘board’ games, VHS will have a place in many cult film lovers. But what do you think? Dead or alive? Visit VideoPunk’s thread and share your thoughts.

Well that’s it for another weekly newsletter. If there is something that you are working on or would love to feature in the newsletter, just let us know and we’ll sort that out for you!

Come and follow the Cult Labs’ Twitter page. Drop us a tweet ( @CultLabs ) and join in the chit-chat. We really do love to hear from you and what you’re watching!
