Joe Bob's "THE LAST DRIVE-IN HALLOWEEN HIDEAWAY" on October 23

 


THE LAST DRIVE-IN HALLOWEEN HIDEAWAY

Hosted by Joe Bob Briggs

Friday, October 23
Only on Shudder
9 p.m. Eastern time/6 p.m. Pacific

 

Halloween's looking a little different this year, but at Joe Bob's Halloween Hideaway, we've decided to scare the bejeezus out of ourselves anyway. We have two zombies, and they are socially distanced.

And both movies feature homicidal druids, and those are also socially distanced--they're thirty-one years apart. We'll be coming to you from the most famous location in horror history; hope you can join us!

John Wayne Loses His Toupee In "NORTH TO ALASKA" (1960) (video)

 


While John Wayne rarely wore a toupee in his private life...

...he was never without it in his later films and personal appearances.

But we get a rare glimpse of his thinning pate in NORTH TO ALASKA (1960)...

...when a punch from Ernie Kovacs sends both hat and hairpiece flying.


I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!

Danny Trejo Battles Mutant Pig-Soldiers in Exploitation Epic "BULLETS OF JUSTICE" -- Watch the Trailer HERE!

 


DANNY TREJO BATTLES MUTANT PIG SOLDIERS IN APOCALYPTIC "BULLETS OF JUSTICE"

GORE-SOAKED WW3 CREATURE FEATURE ARRIVING THIS WEEKEND ON DIGITAL PLATFORMS

BULLETS OF JUSTICE goes whole-hog on everything it tries to do. Gore, poop, sex, nonsense, scenery-chewing, and running gags are all done over the top, and with great success.” - Rue Morgue

“...this is a marvel to look at and I will confidently recommend this on that aspect alone. It’s really that good.” - Killer Horror Critic

How can anyone resist this?” - Sci-Fi Movie Bullets

 


LOS ANGELES, OCTOBER 15, 2020 –The Horror Collective is proud to announce the digital/VOD release of the blood-soaked, outrageously clever exploitation action-horror BULLETS OF JUSTICE starring Danny Trejo ("Machete", "From Dusk Til Dawn"), and directed by Valeri Milev (“Wrong Turn 6"). The film arrives this weekend on all digital VOD platforms, including: iTunes/AppleTV; Amazon; Vimeo, Xbox, and Google Play.

Arriving just in time for Halloween, BULLETS OF JUSTICE held a robust festival run, including its World Premiere at FrightFest with additional screenings at SITGES Film Festival, Hexploitation Film Festival, Obscura Film Festival Berlin, and Morbido Film Fest.

 


 
Director and executive producer Valeri Milev describes the film as “an absurdist nightmare designed to terrify and excite you.” Writer, producer, and lead actor Timur Turisbekov believes Bullets of Justice is about the panic of our own humanity in its darkest hour: “You’ll see the horror in yourself reflected in the frenzy of this dark future.”

In the post-apocalyptic aftermath of World War 3, an army of half-human half-pig super-soldiers takes over the world. Created by the American government, this "Bacon Army" got out of control and now occupies the top of the food chain - farming humans as its favorite food. Rob Justice is an ex-bounty hunter working with the last line of human resistance - a group of survivors hiding in a nuclear bunker deep underground. It is up to Justice to figure out how to destroy them, and liberate humankind. 



WATCH THE TRAILER:

 



BULLETS OF JUSTICE stars Danny Trejo, Timur Turisbekov, Yana Marinova, Dessy Slavova, Doroteya Toleva, and Ester Chardaklieva. It’s directed by Valeri Milev and was written by Milev and Timur Turisbekov.

Olive Films Proudly Presents the Olive Signature Title "RIO GRANDE" (1950) Starring John Wayne/ Coming 11/17/20

 


Olive Films Proudly Presents the Olive Signature Title

"RIO GRANDE" (1950)

LIMITED TO 3,500 BLU-RAY UNITS -- BD only



John Ford, the four-time Oscar winner for Best Director (The Informer – 1936, The Grapes of Wrath – 1941, How Green Was My Valley – 1942 and The Quiet Man – 1953) helmed Rio Grande for Republic Pictures in order to have his pet project, The Quiet Man, approved.

Rio Grande, the third and final installment in John Ford’s loosely-conceived Cavalry Trilogy (preceded by Fort Apache and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon) stars John Wayne as Lt. Col. John Kirby Yorke (the role he inhabited in Fort Apache) alongside Maureen O’Hara (in the first of five films she’d co-star in alongside Wayne) as his estranged wife, Kathleen, a woman set on keeping their son, Jefferson (Claude Jarman Jr., The Yearling), now under Yorke’s command, out of harm’s way.

 


 
Filmed throughout Moab, Utah and the majestic Professor Valley – photographed in exquisite gradations of black and white by Stagecoach cinematographer Bert Glennon – Rio Grande offers nuanced observations on love, family, and honor, while firmly adhering to the western genre, showing Ford at his most measured and mature as a storyteller. 

Written by James Kevin McGuinness (Men of Boys Town) based on the Saturday Evening Post story by James Warner Bellah, Rio Grande features J. Carrol Naish and a supporting cast of familiar faces, many of them from the Ford stock company of actors including Harry Carey, Jr., Ben Johnson, Victor McLaglen, Chill Wills, and Grant Withers.
