    Exploitation Alley: THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (1974)!!!

    If 1970′s possession films aren’t your thing, they probably should be. Most of the time they can be downright creepy, often the right amount of cheese, and there’s always a chance that you might get surprised with random boobs for no reason at all. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I just explained the film I […]

    Belgian Boyscout Slasher CUB Hitting TIFF’s Midnight Madness Lineup; Trailer Looks Like Bloody Fun

    I love hearing about up and coming projects that give off a fresh take on the horror genre. Back in May of last year, the folks at Twitch reported on a crowd funding project to help finish a Belgian slasher film called CUB.

Scott Atkins and Dolph Lundgren Team up to Battle the “Shocate” Creature in LEGENDARY, Hitting DVD/VOD July 29th!

Being a product of the ’80s, very few people make me as excited as Dolph Lundgren does. I grew up with I COME IN PEACE, THE PUNISHER, SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO, and every other film he was in. Yes, his recent output might be less than stellar, but it would be a lie if I […]



As humans, we tend to think that we are compassionate, gentle, and genuinely good people,…unless of course, we’re put into a kill or be killed situation. Then that goes out the door, turning things around, and making us into the very things we fear. Paul Hough’s THE HUMAN RACE shows us just how real, and terrifying this […]

  Korean director Bong Joon-ho (THE HOST, MOTHER) tackles his first English film with SNOWPIERCER, a unique film that takes place several years after global warming has turned the entire world into a frozen tundra, leaving only a few remaining survivors aboard a train with an immortal engine. While aboard the vessel, a class system […]


A conversation with Mark Pellington (part two):

Mark Pellington needs little introduction to film fans. Getting his start working for MTV in its heyday producing interstitial promos led to music videos for such heavyweights as Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails and Moby. Beginning his feature film career with the period drama Going All The Way led to atmospheric, frightening […]


Review: SNOWPIERCER (2014)!

It is the year 2031. Global warming has frozen the planet, killing millions in its wake. What’s left of humanity has boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that circles the entire world, and keeps necessary conditions inside its walls to sustain life. Lately, Curtis has been receiving cryptic messages that have urged him to start a […]
