Well folks, there’s good news and bad news regarding Angry Nazi Zombies. First, the good news: Angry Nazi Zombies is not actually a full-length feature about angry Nazi zombies. It is actually an anthology of short micro budget horror films all set during World War II and shot in the UK, and originally released there […]

Pete Walker had a pretty great run from the late 1960s through the 1970s in British cinema, although in the States he has been more of a cult figure. In the UK, Walker made a name for himself directing and producing exploitation films of two distinct stripes: sex films such as School for Sex, The […]

Filmmaker J.T. Petty has made a name for himself among genre fans with his original independent films Soft for Digging, S&Man, and The Burrowers. While S&Man features some bleak humor in its faux documentary portrayal of the “fake snuff film” underground, Petty’s other films have been more notable for their quiet and careful pacing. So […]

Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, originally published in 1886, is as potent an allegory today as it ever was, asking us to consider the ever-present base, immoral, and animalistic urges that within all of us. We all have the capacity to perform horrible, unspeakable deeds. Whether we do these things […]

Marina de Van is perhaps best known for her debut feature In My Skin (aka Dans ma Peau, 2002), which was a precursor to the brief wave of French horror films that saw filmmakers like Alexandre Aja, Xavier Gens and Pascal Laugier come to international attention with brutal, graphic films that pushed the boundaries of on-screen […]

Before a potential audience member even has a chance to think about it, the title Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D conjures a host of concepts and impressions. Dario Argento is a legendary horror filmmaker, but his recent output has been weak. In particular the long-awaited conclusion to his “Three Mothers” trilogy, Mother of Tears, was a […]

Director Dennis Iliadis shocked horror audiences with his work on the 2009 remake of Wes Craven’s classic The Last House on the Left, mostly because despite virtually everyone agreeing that this was a film that absolutely did not need a remake, the remake itself was actually considerably better than it should/could have been. Iliadis had only […]

Adam Wingard’s You’re Next was a huge hit on the festival circuit in 2011 when it was picked up for distribution for Lionsgate, who promptly confused hardcore horror fans anxiously awaiting the film by announcing an August 2013 release date. As far as inexplicable movie studio maneuvers go, this is about as confounding as they […]

Kimberly Peirce’s filmic adaptation of the 1974 Stephen King novel, Carrie, had a lot to live up to. After all, not only is the novel immensely popular, but Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation is held by many including myself to be a classic of horror cinema. And in some respects, Peirce’s adaptation indeed succeeded admirably. […]

Zombies didn’t always run, and yet, it’s hardly a new development. Forget the 2004 Dawn of the Dead. Never mind 28 Days Later. In 1980, Umberto Lenzi’s Nightmare City (Incubo sulla Città Contaminata) started it all. While also released under the title, City of the Walking Dead, these are not your average walking dead, I […]
