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 […]

Jack and Vanessa (Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb) are on the verge of the next stage of their married life.  They’re about to have twins, and they’ve just bought a new home to fix up and raise a family in.  Unfortunately, the house has been nicknamed the house of blood with a string of gruesome […]

Strippers vs. Werewolves

The immortal rivalry between strippers and werewolves finally comes to the screen in the astonishingly unimaginatively-titled Strippers vs. Werewolves. Or something like that. Despite its similarly utilitarian title, this film has no relation to Charles Band’s recent production Zombies vs. Strippers, or Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!: Zombies vs. Strippers, or even Zombie Strippers, may God have […]

The era of Clueless may have come and gone, but the party-girls still have some unfinished business to attend to. Alicia Silverstone – branded forever as Cher “As If!” Horowitz – reunites this fall with the director who made her a household name back in 1995: Amy Heckerling.

Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D managed to be one of the few remakes of recent years to stand on its own merits as a great new take on the original film’s premise, mostly by ditching everything but the basic concept of Joe Dante’s original film and applying it to a modern-day college spring break setting. Aja […]

Some directors start their careers in ways that tend to define the way they are talked about for quite a while. In the case of Emily Hagins, for example, it’s virtually impossible to talk about her without mentioning the fact that she completed her first feature (a zombie film entitled Pathogen) at the age of […]
