Silent Night, Deadly Night: Collector’s Edition

Silent Night, Deadly Night: Collector’s Edition

| December 2, 2017

Horror fans know the history of Silent Night, Deadly Night all-too-well. It’s the stuff of legend, signifying how spectacularly detached our horror hound interests often can be from dominant social values. This is because, in 1984, this low budget Christmas-themed slasher became the center of controversy, stirring critics and parent groups into an uproar over […]

Misery: Collector’s Edition

Film adaptations of Stephen King’s novels have historically been a pretty mixed bag. At their worst, they range from comically bad to simply dull. But at their best, Stephen King adaptations account for some of cinema’s most beloved masterpieces. You’ll find no shortage of folks who heap praise on Frank Darabont’s adaptations of The Shawshank […]

If it were announced in 2017 that Zak Snyder were remaking some beloved classic, the news would be met with ire by a whole bunch of folks here on the internet. His work with the DC Extended Universe alone has been received with such mixed reaction from audiences that controversy there would be inevitable. And […]

Jackals

| October 10, 2017

In 2017’s Jackals, director Kevin Greutert (Saw VI (2009) and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter (2010)) takes us back to 1983 for a spooky little home invasion thriller set in a cabin in the woods. After a Halloween-style, first-person murder tour through a suburban home, the film smash cuts to a kidnapping. Two men in […]

The Poughkeepsie Tapes

The Poughkeepsie Tapes

| October 9, 2017

Originally slated for distribution by MGM a full decade ago, The Poughkeepsie Tapes (2007) sat on a shelf somewhere gaining word-of-mouth reputation as a disturbing, maddening experience that we horror fans would simply devour if only we could get our hands on it. Still, it remained ever out-of-reach for reasons unknown to us, and its […]

The Resurrected

| September 10, 2017

When Claire tells private investigator John March that her husband Charles just isn’t the man he used to be, she has no idea how horrifyingly near the truth she is! What Claire thinks little more than a case of one recently-missing husband, she soon learns through John is in fact a mystery far more ancient […]

The Manster

The Manster

| September 1, 2017

Of the three movies I’ve seen about a guy running around with an extra head on his right shoulder, The Manster (1962) is easily the second best. That may not be the most impressive accolade, I admit, BUT The Manster does have one thing that The Thing with Two Heads (1972)—my favorite—and the gross, rapey […]

Timebomb

Timebomb

| September 1, 2017

Eddie Kay (Michael Biehn, The Terminator) is your average, no phone-owning, Caesar salad-eating, single watchmaker, which is to say he’s a pretty boring guy. Or rather, he was, until he ran into a burning building like a goddamn superhero, kicked through a wall to save a woman and her baby, and got himself recognized as […]

Teen Wolf Too: Collector’s Edition

Teen Wolf Too: Collector’s Edition

| August 3, 2017

When Scream Factory announced they were releasing Teen Wolf (1985) and Teen Wolf Too (1987) in two separate Collector’s Edition Blu-rays, the decision to split the films was met with skepticism by many in comments sections and on message boards. On one hand, that’s a testament to just how much more people like Teen Wolf […]

Teen Wolf: Collector’s Edition

| August 2, 2017

Thanks to the rising star of Family Ties’ Michael J. Fox in 1985, Teen Wolf wound up being a huge hit, raking in $33 million on a $1.8 million budget. And in retrospect, it’s amazing that Teen Wolf became the hit it did given that the whole film was built on the absurd premise of […]
