This is a holiday week here in the United States and as a result the staff is taking a bit of time off to celebrate with family and friends. So, that means we’ll have a reduced posting schedule for today and for the rest of the week.
Also, due to travel schedules and such, we won’t be having a new episode of The Flickcast this week either. Sorry folks. Look for that to return next week.
Of course, if breaking news happens, we’ll bring it to you. Otherwise, expect to see us back to normal (or our version of it) on Monday, December 2nd.
The crew are taking a much needed break over the Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll be back next week with our regularly scheduled programming. Of course, if something big breaks, we’ll bring it to you.
Otherwise, if you’re in the US of A (or just like to celebrate our holidays) Happy Thanksgiving! If not, enjoy your Thursday and Friday.
See you on the other side.
If you happen to live in the United States, as most of the team here at The Flickcast do, then you know this week is Thanksgiving. That means, of course, that come Thursday we will be eating more food and consuming more booze than most people do in a month.
Yes, that’s just how we roll here in the States. In addition to the intense gluttony taking place, we will also be traveling and spending some quality time with friends and family. That is, at least until someone gets drunk and a fight breaks out.
Consequently, this will be a slow week, posting wise, here at the site. Yes, we will be putting up even less content than usual. Hey, we’re trying here, okay? At least the site is free.
This will continue during the entire week and through the weekend. On Monday things will get back to normal. Or, whatever what we do here is called.
Until then, we wish you all the best for the holiday. We also want you to know we are very thankful you decide to spend some time with us here at The Flickcast every day.
We sincerely appreciate it. Happy Thanksgiving to our friends in the States.

In 2007, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez brought us Grindhouse, a gritty, blood-soaked double feature that tipped its hat to the low budget exploitation movies that played during the 1970′s. The film featured some really fun trailers for fake movies. Rob Zombie, Eli Roth, Edgar Wright, and Rodriquez were each responsible for one of the trailers.
The trailers were such a huge hit with fans that one of them has been turned into a movie. Machete (directed by Robert Rodriguez) hits theaters on September 3rd.
Now comes word that Eli Roth’s trailer for Thanksgiving will be made into a full length feature film. Roth confirmed the news with Cinema Blend, and said that the movie is in the beginning stages.
The Thanksgiving trailer features the town of Plymouth, Massachusetts celebrating the holiday while a serial killer dressed as a Pilgrim goes on a decapitation spree. It is deliciously gruesome and the voice over narration is to die for (pun intended.) This year, there will be no leftovers!
Roth has recruited friend Jeff Rendell to help pen the movie. Rendell appears in the trailer as the deranged Pilgrim. The two hope to write the story as soon as Roth finishes doing publicity for The Last Exorcism, which he produced. That film will be released this Friday, August 27.

Here in the United States, where our intrepid team work daily to bring you the best in content covering movies, tv, comics, games and all things geek, it is a holiday week. Thanksgiving is just around the corner (in fact, tomorrow) so that means many of The Flickcast team will be joining family to celebrate this event. That also means that due to the holiday we will have a somewhat limited posting schedule.
This is only temporary, of course, and in a few days we will resume our usual frantic posting pace brining you all kinds of new and cool coverage of your favorite movies, tv shows, games, comics and more. Until then, be sure to check out upcoming articles from some of our contributors who don’t live in the States, which we will be bringing you during the rest of the week. Also, take a look at some of our recent articles by clicking in the list on the right of this column.
We will be back to business as usual on Monday, November 30th. Until then, Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at The Flickcast.
With the casting and production of Machete being all the rage lately, another film based on a Grindhouse trailer seems to have fallen through the cracks: Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving. Roth has taken a break from directing for a little while during his role as the “Bear Jew” in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, but now that time has passed, it’s time for Roth to warm the director’s chair once again.
In an interview with Sci-Fi (Not SyFy) Wire, Roth explained how he would love to work on a franchise for Thanksgiving, but may first dabble in a PG-13 film.
“[I should] make a PG-13 movie so that I’m like, ‘Aw, man, I wish I could kill more people,’” Roth said. “Then let Thanksgiving just be a bloodletting…. “Now I’m kind of thinking maybe I should make like 20 Thanksgivings in a row, just shoot them all and just release them out of order,” Roth continued. “Like, do Thanksgiving 7, then Thanksgiving 4, then 5 and 6 in the theater. People’d be like, ‘Why did 7 come out already?’ It’s like, ‘Well, it doesn’t matter. It’s just a bunch of people getting chopped up anyways. Who cares?’”
Sadly, these ramblings sound like Roth may have spent a little too much time with QT on the set. But either way, releasing a series of films out of order to confuse the audience does sound like a fun idea. Other films that Roth has in the hopper are supposedly Trailer Trash, which is a feature-length film made up of Grindhouse like trailers, and an adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell. You can currently see the “Bear Jew” in theaters now.
