    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 […]

CONFIDENTIAL, the Aussie actor should have a lifetime pass. News that I’m quite excited about, is the newly announced […]

Using the city of Bakersfield, CA’s real life scares (random people dressed as […]
