Comedy horror triple. 'Stan Helsing' (2009) is a horror spoof telling the story of a descendant of the famous vampire hunter who discovers his true destiny one fateful Halloween night.
Marooned in the appropriately named 'Stormy Night Estates' with his friends on Halloween, video store clerk Stan Helsing (Steve Howey) comes face to face with almost exact facsimiles of the horror world's most famous monsters, including Needlehead (Charles Zuckermann), Fweddy (Ben Cotton), Pleatherface (Twan Holliday), and Michael Criers (Lee Tichon).
Relieved to discover that he's a direct descendant of the world's most famous stake-wielder, Stan, along with his friends, sets forth to do battle with the parody horror icons.
Ron 'Hellboy' Perlman stars in 'I Sell the Dead' (2008), chronicling the misadventures of two 18th century grave robbers who hunt down the roaming undead.
As a young boy, Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) raided coffins looking for jewellery to sell for food.
From these humble beginnings, he quickly progressed to full-blown ghoulhood, aided and abetted by his mentor Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden).
But the good life soon disappears when Arthur is arrested by the towering presence of clergyman Father Duffy (Perlman) and threatened with a date with the guillotine.
Now, spurred on by the promise of an endless supply of whiskey (and a sentimental attachment to his head), Arthur recounts his gory story to his captor.
Bruce Campbell, star of 'The Evil Dead' and 'Spiderman' trilogies, plays himself in 'My Name is Bruce' (2007).
The mining town of Gold Lick is being terrorised by Guan-di, the ancient Chinese evil spirit and protector of the dead.
Infuriated by the desecration of their graves by youngsters, Guan-di has come back to protect the spirits of Chinese miners, who died in a cave-in many years before.
Bruce Campbell-obssessed Jeff Graham (Taylor Sharpe), who really seems to think that Bruce can slay devils, brings him to the town and sets him loose on Guan-di.
Bruce at first thinks that the whole thing is a publicity stunt, but quickly discovers the horrific truth.
Does he cut and run or does he try to live up to his movie persona and become the hero in real life?
