Evil Dead (2013) Review

Evil Dead (2013) Review

| April 4, 2013 | 0 Comments

Fede Alvarez’s remake/reboot of Evil Dead is fiercely relentless and one of the best big budget horror offerings I’ve seen in awhile. While the film isn’t perfect, it gets the big epic moments right, which makes it extremely easy to look past its flaws. While it still retains the kids being cooped up in a […]

Hollow Man Double Feature Blu-Ray

Hollow Man Double Feature Blu-Ray

I remember the first time I saw Hollow Man, when it first came out in theaters in 2000.  I was about 16 and thought it was really intense, visually awesome, and quite sexy.  Apparently it didn’t bother me that most of the sexuality here has a creepy rape factor to it.  I’ve seen the film […]

People have an odd way of catching you offguard. Sometimes the most terrifying onscreen entities can prove to be the nicest people you’ve had a chance to talk to. Such is the case with breakout horror star, Ashley Bell, who audiences may recognize from the 2010 “little indie horror film that could” The Last Exorcism. […]

Boogiepop and Others

As much as I love the Boogiepop Phantom TV series, I can honestly say that its narrative can feel a bit impenetrable. The live action film version, Boogiepop and Others, which is based off of the first light novel, makes for a much smoother transition and an easier effort, that could help people get into […]

Blood-C: The Complete Series

| January 22, 2013 | 1 Comments

Uncompromising, subversive and incredibly violent are but a few of the many words that can describe Blood-C. Made in a collaboration between Production I.G. and CLAMP, this sort-of spin off of the original movie made in 2000, Blood: The Last Vampire, is one the most riveting horror anime TV shows of recent years and certainly […]

Silent Night, Deadly Night: Double Feature

Silent Night, Deadly Night: Double Feature

| December 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

The surprising thing about Silent Night, Deadly Night–you know, that film about a serial killer in a Santa Claus suit– is how straight the whole thing’s played. Although the film stirred concerned parents around the country into an uproar back in 1984 over its blatant exploitation of Christmas imagery to make a quick, B-movie buck, […]

The Ghostmaker

Lionsgate’s horror slate hasn’t been all that impressive lately, and unfortunately this trend continues with The Ghostmaker. Originally titled Box of Shadows, the film was picked up by Lionsgate for distribution directly to DVD, and it does feature an intriguing concept. This automatically puts it on a higher level than previous releases from this year […]

Rising star in the world of horror, Ti West has begun production on his latest film The Sacrament.

Starring familiars of his previous efforts like Joe Swanberg (V.H.S.), Kentucker Audley (V.H.S.) and AJ Bowen (House […]

Wrong Turn 5

Wrong Turn 5

| October 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

Wrong Turn has the unique distinction of easily being one of horror’s most forgettable franchises. It all started back in 2003 with the first film, which followed several adventurers as they were silently stalked and ruthlessly murdered by a bunch of backwater, inbred cannibals. Since then, every so often, another installment is quietly released to […]
