Trailers and Updates

I know this will probably sound like a shameless plug or just me asking for more followers but sometimes I post things directly to social media when I don't feel like writing an entire post about them. (Like a trailer or a single picture for example) I didn't even realize about how much readers were missing, so I will try to do more summary posts like this one. But if you don't want to miss anything, please follow Z-portal on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

[Warning: My Twitter is a shared account that I also use for my Retrospective Geek blog, so there will be some comic book, video game, tokusatsu, and pro wrestling stuff mixed in. I haven't felt the need to start a separate Twitter account specifically for this stuff... yet!]

Ash vs. Evil Dead

Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi are teaming with STARZ to bring us new original series set 30 years after Army of Darkness. The new series is set to premier on Halloween and it looks GROOVY!

Harbinger Down

Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. were the guys who created the incredible practical effects for the 2011 remake of The Thing before the studio shat all over it with mediocre CGI. So ADI took to Kickstarter to fund this movie before it was eventually picked up by Dark Dunes Productions. This movie is a spiritual sequel to John Carpenter's The Thing.

Tales of Halloween

A new anthology horror film like Trick 'r Treat or The ABCs of Death. While there are tons of horror movies that usually come out in time for Halloween, there aren't actually that many movies centered around the holiday itself. I'm looking forward to this, especially with directors like Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV), Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent), Lucky McKee (May), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), and Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons) involved.


A new zombie movie where only kids who have not gone through puberty is susceptible to the virus. This looks like a really fun movie. Zombie children? I'm all for it!


Speaking of Halloween-themed movies and creepy children, here's a movie that premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Hellions is about a trio of evil children stalking a pregnant lady at her isolated home. This movie looks genuinely creepy and should hit VOD on Sept. 18.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

I love zombie movies and this looks like another fun one. A trio of scouts team up with a waitress and try to survive a zombie outbreak.

Turbo Kid

This looks like a cross between Kung Fury and the W is for Wish segment from ABCs of Death 2. This movie looks ridiculous and awesome in all the right ways. Just check out the trailer
