    REVIEW: KILLERS (2014)

    Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stomboel (aka: “The Mo Brothers”)’s newest flick KILLERS is a stunning look into the driving forces of those that kill, and the violence that resides within us all.  Timo Tjahjanto is well known in the horror world for his contributions to V/H/S/2 (“Safe Haven” co-directed with THE RAID‘s Gareth Evans) and […]

    IFC Midnight & Scream Factory Team For ‘THE BABADOOK’ Release 4/14!

    We’d heard early rumors that the fine folks over at Scream Factory might be putting out one of the most acclaimed horror films of the last year on home video. Turns out those rumors were half right. Scream Factory is actually teaming up with IFC Midnight to release the Blu-Ray/ DVD or THE BABADOOK on […]

    REVIEW: Digging Up The Marrow

    I’ve never been particularly shy about my love of most of the stuff put out by Adam Green.  I’ve gone on record multiple times discussing how HOLLISTON was one of my biggest “pick-me-ups” during cancer recovery and how I firmly believe “The Dog Monologue” from FROZEN is probably my favorite horror movie monologue since the […]

    News Clips/Stills Released For FEAR CLINIC; Scaring Horror Fans on DVD/Bluray February 10th!

    The Rob Hall/Aaron Drane created FEAR CLINIC web-series was a big hit with horror fans, when it first aired on the now defunct (and sorely missed) FEARnet back in 2009. Anchored by genre legend (and Freddy himself) Robert Englund, the series dealt with the various phobias people have, with each episode featuring Englund’s Dr. Andover […]

Bluray Review: THE DOCTOR AND THE DEVILS

While fans of Scream Factory can typically rejoice in their continual output of cult and fan-favorites, every once in a while the SF gang put out a genre film that has either been long lost or forgotten about and it switches things up for the better. We all want to have great collector’s editions of […]

Review: V/H/S: VIRAL

There comes a point in every series, in which some (or all) of the magic that made a franchise’s first entry so fun to latch onto. When 2012’s V/H/S hit, it showcased a cool concept of various horrible stories playing out on videotapes that hoodlums watched. The following year, V/H/S/2 took the same approach, added […]

Review: MOCKINGBIRD

After an extremely successful run with his debut film THE STRANGERS, director Bryan Bertino’s follow-up was highly anticipated.  Boasting a unique spin on the ‘found footage’ subgenre, MOCKINGBIRD seemed like it was going to be a tense second film from Bertino.  Unfortunately, MOCKINGBIRD is the definition of sophomore slump.  It possesses some of the simplistic […]

Icons of Fright Interviews JESSABELLE/SAW VI&VII Director Kevin Greutert!

Before making his way into directing, Kevin Greutert established himself as one hell of an editor, having edited everything from THE STRANGERS and THE COLLECTION, to the first five SAW films, before successfully making the transition into directing. Staying in the franchise until its supposed end (last week’s press conference put an end to “the […]

Upcoming TALES OF HALLOWEEN Anthology Boasts GREAT Horror Lineup!!; Begins Shooting In November!

I’m an anthology nut. Sure there are definitely a decent amount of uneven and/or straight up bad ones, but the ones that do it right, REALLY work well for me. I just love the idea of horror filmmakers taking the short form of filmmaking and telling quality stories in a limited amount of time, which […]
