    Putting together a genre film festival of any type takes time, commitment (or committed), a reliable team, a diverse lineup, luck plus so much more.

    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 […]

Between 1983-1989 longtime special effects men/actors Mike Deak and William Butler worked on a multitude of genre films (many for the legendary Empire Pictures) and thanks to the power of the internet (for now, I’d love to see these guys have a TV show doing this!), they’ve joined forces again to bring you fright fanatics […]

Icons of Fright Chats With: LET ME MAKE YOU A MARTYR Co-Writers/Directors John Swaf & Cory Asraf

I’m going to be loud and clear for you fright fanatics: John Swaf & Cory Asraf’s LET ME MAKE YOU A MARTYR is quite easily one of the most intensely poignant films to hit the festival circuit in years (review). A mixture of the quiet southern-noir and the terrifying hitman looking for his target film, […]

TV Review: DEAD OF SUMMER – Episode 8: “The Devil Inside”

The nostalgia in me got all excited during the opening moments of the latest episode of DEAD OF SUMMER as Jessie makes her way through a party with Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative” blasting. This is her episode and so much about her character makes sense now. See, she used to be more on the innocent […]

V/H/S/ Segment AMATEUR NIGHT Gets Feature Treatment With SIREN; Release planned for December!!

When 2012’s V/H/S hit the horror scene, it was a new, exciting and refreshing approach to the whole found-footage type of genre fare. One of my favorite segments from that film was David Bruckner’s Amateur Night, which saw a group of guys unfortunately coming across a creepy woman who ended up being a succubus. It […]

BLOOD SOAKED PANELS Review- TURBO KID: APPLE’S LOST ADVENTURE

Earlier this year, I kept seeing posts on social media in reference to TURBO KID. I had no idea what people were talking about, but the word “awesome” kept being used. A common comparison was MAD MAX when I looked into it and was intrigued by the logo design that reminded me of something I […]

TV Review: OUTCAST – Episode 10: “This Little Light”

I have never been a fan of THE EXORCIST. My Catholic parents always warned me about it and that it was the scariest movie ever. Probably at some inappropriately young age, I finally saw it and didn’t think much of it. To this day, I still find the demonic dubbing extremely distracting and takes me […]
