The Secret of the Sword

"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film.

The ABCs of Death 2.5 is Coming Exclusively to Vimeo On-Demand On Aug. 2nd (including trailer)


I was not the biggest fan of the either of the ABCs of Death anthologies. I thought that some of the shorts were really good, but they were surrounded by shorts that were not so good. However, I am always looking for something new and when I saw on Dread Central that Drafthouse Pictures is releasing an ABCs of Death 2.5, I must admit that I am probably going to watch it. 

The kicker to this plan lies in the fact that the film is going to be available exclusively on Vimeo, a streaming service that caters more to an indie crowd than YouTube. I have tried Vimeo in the past and found their service to be lackluster. In fact, I was having a really hard time trying to get the embed of the trailer below because the website kept screwing up.

After watching the trailer I will have to say that my interest has been piqued. I want to see this and I will. You can preorder the film at http://vimeo.com/ondemand/abcsdeath25

Press Release:

Drafthouse Films has announced the upcoming release of ABC’s of Death 2 1/2: World Competition Edition, the result of an extensive global campaign intended to spotlight the most passionate and talented upcoming filmmakers in the horror genre. The latest entry in the beloved franchise will arrive exclusively on Vimeo August 2nd as a $5.99 download or $2.99 rental.
The series, known for its anarchically alphabet­-themed anthology of short films, launched a “Filmmaker Frenzy” competition for the segment devoted to the letter “M” – collecting more than 500 three-minute long entries from over 40 countries in the process – including Robert Boocheck’s winning entry, “M is for Masticate,” featured in ABC’s of Death 2.
ABC’s of Death 2 1/2 showcases an additional top 26 finalists, providing fans 85 minutes of unadulterated madness, including “M is for Marauder,” “M is for Malnutrition,” and “M is for Mariachi,” along with plenty more new nightmare fuel to tide them over until the next numbered segment in the series.
“The production team had a real blast selecting the 26 shorts that make up ABC’s of Death 2 1/2,” said producer and series creator Ant Timpson. “The hard part was only selecting 26, as the competition provided so many outstanding entries. We couldn’t be happier with the final lineup. There’s enough horror, humor, weirdness, and, frankly, truly fucked up material to give even the most jaded fan a wake-up call from Hell.”
