Helmed by three talented and motivated filmmakers, Foresight Features has two feature films gearing up for release: Jesse Thomas Cook’s Monster Brawl and John Geddes’ Exit Humanity.

The finalists have been announced, and they couldn’t be cooler! From space zombie mummies to rampaging cavemen (that’s mad as heck), the winners not only captured everything we love about B-Movies, but also created absolutely astounding work. The talent on display in the fake trailers and posters make you wish that these were real movies coming out!

on January 7, 2010 | 1 Comment

That doesn’t make this gingerbread house (err, church?) any less cool, though. Nicholas Daley and friends made this zombie apocalypse interpreted through ginger bread and sweets for an office competition. Check out the link for more pictures and the shocking conclusion of the contest.
