Sick and Twisted!

Set for a July 28th release. Twisted is a horror/comedy directed by Chai Yee Wei and the new teaser trailer is below.

The story revolves around a drug dealer who banged up a young girl, a pair of con men who wants to turn over a new leaf, and 4 cabin crews whose lives were turned upside down over a fateful night of drugs and booze. This is a story of individuals with fates intertwined and how their paths clash. A series of twisted events that is both a study on cause and effect, and how our actions affect the people around us.

More Yen To Come In Dragon

Wu Xia, which will be released as Dragon in the States, is a remake of The One-Armed Swordsman from 1967 and is set for an August 3 release date. Found this teaser trailer earlier and by all accounts it looks pretty damned good. Directed by Peter Chan it stars Donnie Yen, who looks to be back kicking ass again.

Martial artist Liu Jinxi (Donnie Yen) lives a seemingly normal life with his wife (Tang Wei) and two sons in a remote village. But his tranquil life is threatened following the arrival of a detective named Xu Baijiu (Takeshi Kaneshiro).

Suck It Up!

Tell me this doesn't look like a good time!

Synopsis below taken from the Official Site which can be found here

Jim Crawley is having a really bad day. He gets fired from his job at the nuclear power plant, his car is impounded and he discovers his wife having an affair. To make matters worse, Jim gets himself abducted by an evil scientist looking to conduct human testing for a vaccine against a deadly mosquito borne virus spreading across the planet. It turns out that years of exposure to nuclear radiation and rabid mosquito DNA don't mix very well and Jim transforms into a half man-half mosquito, hell bent on revenge. Sucker… payback's an itch.

Up Shallow Creek Without A Paddle

Another new release coming from Breaking Glass' Vicious Circle Label. Synopsis and Trailer below.
May 13, 2011 – Philadelphia, PA – Breaking Glass Pictures has announced the July 5 DVD release of director Jon D. Wagner’s horror film “The Anniversary at Shallow Creek.” Former pro baseball player Eric Fischer and his wife Brianna Lee Johnson  share acting and producing credits for the film, which will be released under the Vicious Circle Films label.
Synopsis: When Sam and Paige decide to escape the stress of medical school for a romantic getaway in the mountains, their four best friends end up tagging along and turning it into a weekend of partying.  Little does the group know that their beautiful mountain lodge has a dark history: exactly one year before, the house was the scene of a grisly double murder – and the killer was never caught.  Now, as night falls and the group drinks beer by a bonfire, a predator hides in the darkness, watching them all through the crosshairs of a sniper rifle.  In an instant, the friends’ night of partying turns into a bloody fight for survival.
“The Anniversary at Shallow Creek” is a slick homage to horror classics and a clever update of the genre that never leads exactly where the audience suspects.  As the kill count rises, the surviving friends find themselves to be pawns in a horrifying game – one that promises to test their survival skills and the strength of their relationships.  
Special features for the DVD will include a behind-the-scenes featurette, interviews and audio commentary with the director, stars and producer.
