Norse tribesmen wander through a barren and beautiful landscape battle-bloodied and dying when they come across a tribe very different from themselves.

Filmmaker Ben Wheatley has made a name for himself with pitch black comedies
that mix domesticity and horror in equal measure. Films such as Down Terrace and Kill List are matter-of-fact and disturbing, submerging the audience in situations where real life appears as an illusion meant to protect one from the brutal tenancies hidden within. The droll and violent Sightseers takes this clever conceit and sets it on the road. Tina and Chris are on a sightseeing trip in the British countryside. She’s dowdy and awkward, while he’s receptive but harbors
a tempera really bad temper. It all begins with a piece of litter. When a tourist discards a candy wrapper on the ground, it makes Chris angry and jumpstarts a killing spree whereby the couple begins picking off anyone that gets on their nerves. Demented and darkly funny, Sightseers is a disquieting comedy that will make you think twice about where you throw that next candy wrapper.

With a narrative arc that pays homage to Alejandro Jodorowski and characters as original as Jarmusch’s Dead Man, The Rambler is a psychedelic western that has been keeping audiences at the edge of their seats since its debut at Sundance. Dreamlike in its lyrical resemblances to David Lynch and Luis Bunuel, The Rambler stars Dermot Mulroney (Young Guns, The Wedding Date) as a guitar-toting drifter recently released from prison. In search of a long-lost brother, he crosses paths with a barbarous cast of characters and otherworldly depravities. Unyielding in its commitment to a surrealistic tone, and gorgeously shot amidst highly stylized landscapes, The Rambler is a psychotic expedition into the rarely traveled depths of Americana.

Contrary to popular belief, 2002’s 28 Days Later was not the first movie to feature fast-moving zombies. That honor would go to the 1980 horror opus City of the Walking Dead, a crazy, bloody journey into terror that takes the widespread zombie panic of the original Dawn of the Dead and flies it across the ocean to Italy. When a plane containing scientists lands at a desolate airport, a group of reporters expecting a press conference
is shocked to find themselves attacked by the passengers and crew, who have been transformed into scarred, irradiated zombies out for blood. And not just any zombies: these living dead sprint like Olympic athletes, chasing down their hapless victims before bludgeoning them to death with hammers and axes, and even golf clubs! As the city lays ignorant of its impending doom, it’s up to one surviving reporter to alert the masses of the growing hoards that are hungry for blood and multiplying by the minute. Featuring loads of outrageous scenes of extreme, gory mayhem instigated by industrious zombies, City of the Walking Dead was created by Umberto Lenzi, also responsible for the notorious exploitation extravaganza, Cannibal Ferox.
