Batman vs. Terminators? It’s (sorta) Real!

Prepare to have your eyeballs seared by a terrific animated short that pits Batman against a horde of Terminators in a bid to save John Connor’s young life, created by very talented fan Mitchell Hammond.

Here’s the situation, according to Hammond:

“Thirty years have passed since Bruce Wayne survived Skynet’s nuclear blasts in August of ’97. Iron demons now roam the planet, and without the requirement to defend the innocent against crime and injustice, Wayne has seeked [sic] refuge in the bomb shelter that saved his life; the Batcave.

Having scavenged the wasteland for resources, he discovers the radio of a dead soldier. There is static over a frequency. Flesh and blood is rising up to the west. With The Stinger; a riot control vehicular unit built before the apocalypse along with a refitted bomb blast vest, Batman makes his way across what remains of the United States to join forces with the man determined to neutralize the electronic menace: John Conner [sic].”

Everything about this clip seems perfect, from the character designs to the cartoony movements to the grim music. I would definitely buy a ticket if this was done as a feature film!

Watch Karen Gillan’s Oculus Trailer

The horror film Oculus was Karen Gillan’s first big project after breaking hearts and leaving the beloved Amy Pond role on DOCTOR WHO, and the film’s first full trailer has just been released.

The flick looks very creepy — even if the clip does not make it clear what exactly the demonic mirror does. Apparently it makes you see things it wants you to see… but is the mirror possessed by a demon, or is it a prison for a demon — or is the looking glass itself evil?

Still, Karen gets to use her native Scottish accent, and the movie co-stars BATTLESTAR GALACTICA’s Katee Sackhoff, so how bad can it be? (Wait, don’t answer that… with horror films, the result can be quite terrible.)
