Lollipop Chainsaw’s Starling Sisters Kick Zombie Dick
We’re steadfast in our approach to Lollipop Chainsaw’s June 12th release date and we have yet another trailer to add to our belt. This time, Juliet’s sisters, Cordelia and Rosalind, are showcased.
Not content with letting Juliet be the only zombie killing Starling, her sisters enter the fray with just as much talent for dismemberment and a penchant for flowery vulgarities (“My sisters and I wear our vaginas proudly,” proclaims Juliet, both affirming her femininity and ensuring a t-shirt out there somewhere will say that).
Concept images for Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture’s freshly announced Killer is Dead. Coming out for the PS3 and Xbox 360, Suda’s new piece slashes the same vein Killer 7 and No More Heroes did while being related to this games in spirit only.
Shadows of the Damned Gettin’ Sequelized?
“I’m thinking of a sequel, actually,” says famed composer and collaborator, Akira Yamaoka, his interest giving a Shadows successor the only shred of traction it has.
Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture’s grindhouse-y homage to horror and action flicks that populated the ‘80’s with awesome may have been received well by all that played it, but suffered from the fact that “all” in sales speak actually encompassed a group of people that could barely fill a high school gymnasium.
Even so, when Eurogamer inquired if publisher EA would back a sequel, the Silent Hill composer replied with a firm “Probably.” I’m confident if the developer’s next project, the high school horror movie inspired Lollipop Chainsaw, leaves a bigger mark, Grasshopper Manufacture will be allowed free reign on anything they’d like. Mr. Yamaoka and the twenty-four fans that bought Shadows sure hope that means more B-flick adventures with Garcia Hotspur and his incorrigible Johnson.
The Voices Behind Lollipop Chainsaw
Filmmaker and all around goddamned American hero James Gunn has lent a demented hand to Lollipop Chainsaw and he’s brought some vocal talent to help. As always, behind the scenes with Mr. Gunn is a real treat; no industry professional alive can get away with asking a performer to act like they “have half a fucking clue” and make them want to in one fell swoop. Goddamned hero.
Lollipop Chainsaw (PS3/Xbox 360)
The many wardrobe changes for Juliet Starling. The difference between life and death could hinge on how high your skirt hikes up. Remember this.
Lollipop Chainsaw (PS3/Xbox 360)
Grasshopper Manufacture’s next weird, playable mish-mash of style and violence has a new date to call its own. June 12th is the day zombies will regret ever craving the flesh of a gyrating teenager and her disembodied boyfriend’s pissed off head. European zombies will share a similar sentiment on the 13th.
Japanese Lollipop Chainsaw Trailer; You’ve Been Warned
I hope this trailer is as informative of Japanese culture to you as it was to me. They sure do have the best zombie outbreaks over there.
Suda 51 invites you to beat off the undead as Juliet on April 24th. If Suda gets to play dress up with high school girls, I get to make puns.
Lollipop Chainsaw Gleefully Desecrates Love Stories in ‘Valentine’s Day’ Trailer
This latest trailer finally shows us how the disembodied head seen on Juliet’s gyrating waist comes into play. And wouldn’t you know it, it’s pretty disturbing camp. The kind of camp only James Gunn can dish out, in fact. Mr. Gunn, writer and director of such must-see fare as Slither and Super, has laid down story and character groundwork for the game.
Horror-comedy is his bag in a strong way, and his written word already seems to be pushing this title where it wants to be which is subsequently pushing me towards it. That and I’m a softie for a good “cheerleader versus the living dead” romp. Mark April 24th down for Lollipop’s arrival on the PS3 and 360.
Hail to the Prom Queen with Lollipop Chainsaw
When I said Lollipop Chainsaw paid homage to Evil Dead, I didn’t know how right I was. Offered as a pre-order bonus at Gamestop, teenaged zombie-mauler Juliet Starling can get primitive on those undead screwheads with her Ashley J. Williams skin.
A multitude of other costumes are being made available if you pre-order at either Amazon or Best Buy, but I’ve put up the blinders the moment I caught ‘Groovy’ in a headline today. If you’re unfamiliar with Ash and his misadventures with the Necronomicon, either load up your Netflix queue or find a way to punch yourself out of this reality so I don’t have to know you anymore.
