    V/H/S Segment Gets Feature Treatment in First SiREN Trailer; Arriving This December!

    David Bruckner’s “Amateur Night” was one of the real standout parts of 2012’s V/H/S. Doing a great job of setting characters up for a good time and paying off with one hell of a second half, the segment was a lot of fun and quite terrifying at the same time. Now, with DANCE OF THE […]

    31 Hits DVD/Bluray/Digital HD This December; Comes With Four hour Documentary

    Rob Zombie’s latest film, 31, has had the effect most of his films tend to have: a pretty divisive one. Personally, I LOVED the film (review) and think it’s one of the most entertaining horror films in a long, long time. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s brutal as hell. Zombie created a true horror […]

Review: THE ONES BELOW

I am a sucker for maternal thrillers. From ’90s popcorn thrillers like THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE to the brutal extremism of INSIDE, crazy mothers hit a soft spot for me and part of it may be due to the fact that the motivation is right there. There’s no need for an extensive backstory […]

Review: YOGA HOSERS

Kevin Smith’s films have always had a polarizing effect to them. People either obsessively love them or unequivocally hate them but I’ve always found myself in the middle; having enjoyed his earlier stuff and feeling neutral about his later films. A few years ago it was announced that he would be doing horror films, and […]

Four Questions With Aerosmith frontman/HAPPY BIRTHDAY actor Steven Tyler!!

To call Casey Tebo’s HAPPY BIRTHDAY (hitting theaters on September 9th) a wild ride would be the understatement of the year. It’s the equivalent of THE HANGOVER meets something far more dangerous, far more risky and far more entertaining. Having previously directed a concert film for the long-running and legendary band Aerosmith, as well as […]

BEYOND FRIGHT Review: KLOWN FOREVER

Very few films caught me off guard as much as 2010’s Danish comedy, KLOWN. The brainchild of stars/co-writers Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as well as director Mikkel Nørgaard, the feature film took what was so hilarious and fun about the Television show it was based on and continually surprised its viewers with an irreverent sense […]
