Just finished watching the first two seasons of the TBS show People of Earth.
It’s a light, fun show about an alien abduction support group and each episode is all too short. The show is perfect as an apéritif between heavier fare, but comes with the danger of serious bing watching. Drink it up! Try to watch just one episode at a time and you’ll find it ridiculously hard to do.
The show chugged along with “ok” ratings in season one and gained steam in season two. TBS has since picked it up for a third season.
This little show is a gem and deserves an audience. Give it a try and pass the word along if you like it. Let’s see if we can get a season four and five.People of Earth on TBS ]]>
Love horror comedies and have a teacher in the family? Then COOTIES starring Rainn Wilson, Elijah Wood, and Alison Pill may be your chicken nugget.
Shamble on over to your Amazon Prime account and you’re likely to find a wallet-friendly rental cost. I got mine for 99 cents–your mileage may vary. Heck, a little search action could even find you a freebie somewheres. And who does’t love a freebie?
On Sunday, June 24 at 10pm Strange Stuff will screen their debut film, Death of the Dead, the way it was intended, in a bar full of rowdy, drunk people. Expect the frequent hoot and holler, obnoxious laughs and people yelling at the screen. THAT is Strange Stuff.
When we embarked on this journey to make Strange Stuff movies we didn’t want to make thought-provoking, high brow cinema. We want people to grab some buddies, a few cold ones and maybe even a hit from the bong (although our attorney said that is illegal behavior and we cannot condone illegal behavior, so we have to say “Don’t smoke pot, kids”). Once you are completely liquored up and having a good time, that is the moment when a Strange Stuff movie becomes the best thing you’ve ever seen.
So tomorrow will be the first test of a true Strange Stuff screening. The suds will flow and the atmosphere will be light. And hopefully Death of the Dead gets its fair share of laughs along with the taunts. But in the end everyone will buy another round and say it was a good time. And if you decide you must see a Strange Stuff movie we encourage you, no, we damn near demand that you get yourself your favorite alcoholic beverage, grab some friends who enjoy the ridiculous as much as you do, and have a good time. That is what we want. That is Strange Stuff.
Have you every thought, “I wonder what it would be like to get a Strange Stuff DVD for half price?” Well friends, think no more. We are doing something that, like, only one other person in the HISTORY of the UNIVERSE has ever done… offer a half off sale. Believe it!
All week long you can pick up Death of the Dead or our newest flick Attack of the Alien Jelly Monsters from the Depths of Uranus for half of the MSRP.
Be a part of the revolution and get your favorite movie today or buy a Strange Stuff movie instead, because once this “sale” craze catches on everyone will be doing it. Don’t be the only person in the HISTORY of the UNIVERSE to miss this special event.

Gruesome has been there since the days of Dismal and he always checks out the lastest work from Fearmakers/Strange Stuff. Last month he got to sit in on the premiere of Attack of the Alien Jelly Monsters from the Depths of Uranus and he gave it a little review. “If you want to watch a movie and laugh your ass off, this movie is definitely for you,” says Gruesome. We agree. Look at our ass, it’s completely off!

ATTACK OF THE JELLY MONSTERS
FROM THE DEPTHS OF URANUS
Sept. 2-4, 2011
Assume the position at Horrorfind Weekend and prepare to be probed. We will be at the event premiering our new movie. You’ll want to swing by our table because it’ll be loaded with all kinds of goodies for purchase. But will you respect us in the morning?
Fellow filmmaker, and friend of Strange Stuff Productions, Jason Collum has a new scream queen documentary coming out and he needs your help.
His previous doc, SOMETHING TO SCREAM ABOUT, is an excellent indie project exploring scream queens in the industry.
His new project, SCREAMING IN HIGH HEELS, is a more focused story about Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, and Michelle Bauer. The project is essential done, but he just needs funds for lawyers fees, marketing materials, DVD pressing, etc.
Collum is offering cool incentives for contributors, plus he’s doing one of those deals where money is refunded if he doesn’t raise enough by a certain date. You can even get your name in the film credits as a backer.
This project must be funded by July 6th, so make your decision TODAY!
Okay, so before you get all excited like we did and think DotD is the next best thing since sliced brain, this list is from a viewer who posted it on IMDb.com. Anyone can make a list, even you, and rate whatever movie you want in the top whatever. BUT, it’s still pretty cool that someone has seen this movie and taken the time to put it in their list of favorite horror flicks for 2010. And if it is in order, the viewer lists DotD at #3! Wow!
So even if DotD isn’t on an “official” top 20 list, like say from AFI, it’s still awesome that a viewer thought that much of it to put it in their top 20 horror flicks for 2010. Here is the COMPLETE LIST of movies in the viewers Top 20 if you’re interested.
Have you seen Death of the Dead? Give it a rating on IMDb.com. Just click on this link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1604564/ and give it a star rating 1-10 (10s preferred). After a certain number of non biased ratings IMDb.com will post the average.]]>
Gary King was interviewed in the latest entry from Things to do in L.A about his directing experience on Death of the Dead.
TTDILA: Cheese, cheese and more cheese the movies filled with it, was there anything you wished wasn’t so dirty, or were you holding back?
GK: We didn’t hold back on anything while shooting this film. The best part of the entire shoot was giving a lot of freedom to the actors as I wanted them to take the jokes as far as they could go. I would then see what worked best and we’d start to play around within those areas. It was great to have some really talented performers and the freedom from the producers to riff from the script when time allowed.
In fact, I have to say that as far as dirty jokes, I probably had some of the filthier ideas (if they weren’t in the script already — Bo’s got a pretty sick mind!)….as sometimes as the camera was rolling a random idea would pop in my head and I’d ask the actors to do it. Christina Rose (Wanda) and Jack Abele (Master Sensei) were great troopers and would do anything I asked.
