    Bluray Review: GHOST STORY

    When it comes to either cult-favorites or long lost horror films being released on Bluray for the first time, very few companies show their love for the genre as much as Scream Factory does. Whether it be fan-favorites like HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION boxset, TV horror double features such as THE INITIATION OF SARAH & ARE YOU […]

    Crazy Triple Features: Olive Films’ VOODOO MAN, UNDERCOVER BLUES & PHASE IV Blurays

    As weird as it can be, I love to take three films that have NOTHING to do with each other and watch them back to back. Sure, nothing beats binge watching any of my favorite franchises like the HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH or A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films, but this odd triple feature approach […]

    Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s SCREAM QUEENS Matters by Leonel VHS

    Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were […]

    Interview with 8 Films To Die For’s BASTARD star Rebekah Kennedy

    When a film deals with two runaways, a suicidal cop and a newlywed couple of serial killers, you know you’re in for an experience. That’s the rundown of BASTARD, one of the 2015 batch of After Dark’s 8 Films To Die For. A film that takes typical tropes and turns them upside down, the film […]

    Beyond Fright: Gaspar Noe’s Controversial Film LOVE Hits Bluray/DVD January 5th

    Gaspar Noe is definitely no stranger to making controversial films, with ENTER THE VOID, IRREVERSIBLE and other past movies of his being either completely out there or shocking and in your face. While his films aren’t for everyone, you can’t deny the fact that he makes films without compromise, without candy coating any topics he […]



Like found footage, zombie films and a half a dozen other horror subgenres, the demonic possession film has seen quite the resurgence in recent years, with at least twelve films being released just this year alone, all involving an unfortunate soul being taken over by a demonic entity or the big guy downstairs himself. While […]

Henry Rollins-led HE NEVER DIED Launches Campaign To Expand U.S. Release; Red-Band Trailer Debut

One of the many genre gems that caught our attention during this year’s SXSW (South by Southwest) Festival was the Henry Rollins-led film HE NEVER DIED (review). Directed by Jason Krawczyk, the film follows Jack (Henry Rollins), a guy who has a very set daily routine which involves TV, bingo,..and well,..being a 10,000 year old […]



With meta-horror, the roots go deep into the bloodline of the genre. While SCREAM is often given the sole credit of inventing the element of self-referential comedic horror that borders on parody, the honor actually belongs to ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN, an endearing classic in its own right. Other pre-Scream meta included WES CRAVEN’S […]


Drafthouse gets WEIRD with Trailer for Cult legendary film DANGEROUS MEN

At this year’s Fantastic Fest, there were many great films that were played for festival attendees…and then there was DANGEROUS MEN. One of the most confusingly entertaining films that I’ve ever seen, the long-lost cult film that took 26 years to complete (was it actually completed is something you’ll ask yourself at the end) was […]



A good mystery film is hard to come by these days. If you’ve seen one, then you’ve seen them all at this point, and it takes an interesting approach to keep your viewers guessing what’s really happening until the film’s end. Luckily, the Michael Polish-helmed AMNESIAC is just that kind of film. A mystery thriller […]

Fantastic Fest review: THE DEVIL’S CANDY

Some films leave an impact on you so profoundly, that it takes a while for you to fully wrap your head around them. Remove yourself from the theatrical experience of seeing them enough to articulate what made the films hit you so hard. Sean Byrne’s THE DEVIL’S CANDY was that kind of film and that […]


Icons of Fright chats with TALES OF HALLOWEEN director Axelle Carolyn

When you have an anthology that features ten segments and has eleven directors, it’s a given that at least a few of them won’t be that great, right? Well, TALES OF HALLOWEEN is the anthology that proves that very wrong, with a solid film from start to finish. Whether it’s monsters, scary kids, or something […]
