    Bluray Review: THE SQUAD

    Scream Factory’s lineup of original releases have been somewhat of a hit or miss thing for viewers. Some, like the French Lovecraft-ian DEAD SHADOWS were met with moderately positive praise and some of the them, such as THE MONKEY’S PAW was not. Personally, I’m a big supporter of the gang at Scream Factory releasing these […]

    Bogliano’s LATE PHASES Gets New Poster; Full Release Info

    I find it incredibly interesting that Adriån Garcîa Bogliano’s follow-up to the acclaimed HERE COMES THE DEVIL is a werewolf movie, but if it shows anything, it’s that there’s a large amount of versatility to his work. The creature horror film, LATE PHASES is set to be released by Dark Sky Films on November 21st and the […]

    Screamfest Review: JULIA

    Making its U.S. debut at Screamfest, Matthew A. Brown’s dark thriller, JULIA is a force to be reckoned with. A film so visually and emotional resonant, that it transcends any boundaries or limitations that are typically placed on the type of genre that the film falls under. A rare gem, led by one brave and […]

Tribeca Films’ THE DEMON’S ROOK, A Love Letter To Italian Horror; Trailer Gory As Hell

Today’s entries into the zombie subgenre typically fall into the repetitive slow-walking/fast-running categories, very rarely offering much else. Back in the day, films like Fulci’s ZOMBI, THE GATES OF HELL and/or Bava’s DEMONS stood out because they offered something fresh and exciting, something that today’s undead efforts often lack. Enter James Sizemore’s film THE DEMON’S ROOK, […]

1990 Satanic Possession Film THE FIRST POWER Heading to Bluray This October!!

The Satanic sub-genre is by far one of my favorites, and the 1990 possession film, THE FIRST POWER has been a fave of mine since it was first released in theaters when I was 10 or so. During that time, Lou Diamond Phillips was absolute gold in my opinion, and THE FIRST POWER was just […]
