Trailer Watch: Stage Fright, a horror-comedy-musical

Stage Fright actually looks like a fun, campy horror flick. The film premieres at SXSW soon, but it will hit VOD on April 3, before a limited theatrical run beginning May 9th.

Here’s the synopsis, courtesy Twitch:

Starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Broadway diva, but she’s stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theatre.

Trailer Watch: Muppets Most Wanted teaser

A teaser for Muppets Most Wanted has made its way to the interwebs. Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey opposite the usual gang of Muppets, the film. Not that you get any of that from this teaser.

The script is by Nicholas Stoller (who co-wrote The Muppets) and The Muppets director James Bobin (who returns as director, as well), but it feels pretty different from the last film, perhaps because Jason Segel isn’t involved this time, but perhaps just because they’re actually on the set of, y’know… a Muppet Show.

Anyway, it comes out in March, 2014.

Shpadoinkle! Watch Cannibal! the Musical NOW

Cannibal! the Musical is a 1996 (pre-South Park) film by Trey Parker, starring Parker, his South Park comrade-in-arms Matt Stone and several familiar faces from Orgazmo: Dian Bachar (Choda Boy), Maseo Maki (G Fresh), and Toddy Walters (Georgi).

It’s distributed by Troma Films, which has officially put over a hundred of their films on YouTube — free.

If you’re a fan of South Park or Parker’s other movies (Orgazmo and Team America), you’ll probably love Cannibal!, as well. It’s absurdly, insanely hilarious, if a little uneven. Well worth at least one viewing — I still find myself catching small details when I revisit it: listen for Dian Bachar jingling his keys while he hits on the “Indian” woman.


Trailer Watch: Yet another trailer for The Muppets

If you didn’t know by now, The Muppets are back this Thanksgiving, and here’s what seems like the seventh trailer for it.

“Wokka wokka” had me howling, though. You’ll see.
