    This one sounds like a lot of fun, so I figured I’d let you crazy fright fanatics know about XLrator Media’s acquisition and release plans for the Danielle Panabaker-led SciFi thriller TIME LAPSE. I love me some Sci-Fi, and I also am typically on board with the majority of titles XLrator puts out, so it […]

    Schwarzenegger Shows Dramatic Chops in Trailer For Zombie Film MAGGIE!!

     I don’t know about fright fanatics, but I have loved every film Schwarzenegger has made after coming out of acting retirement. Sure, THE ESCAPE PLAN was “eh”, but everything else, right up my alley. I’m absolutely in love with the idea of Arnold fronting a drama, this one (MAGGIE) being about a man (played by […]

    Bad Guys Gets Their Comeuppance In New Trailer/Poster For EVANGELINE!!

    This one should be called “I SPIT ON YOUR CROW”, because judging from the poster and trailer for EVANGELINE, it really gives off the hybrid of a rape revenge film but with a dark and supernatural vibe. Personally, I’m all about revenge films, and this one looks like it bypasses all of the cliche-filled elements […]

FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS IS HAPPENING!

The digital revolution had all but rendered shooting on a film as nothing more than a pipe dream, and cinephiles were beginning to say goodbye to the medium that shaped their favorite art form from the very beginning.  The aesthetic of film is something that cannot be captured, only replicated, no matter how skilled an editor […]

SXSW Q&A: CROW HAND!!! Director Brian Lonano!!

As previously reported (review), the short film CROW HAND!!! was one of our favorite shorts at this year’s SXSW festival, and we thought we’d ask director Brian Lonano a few questions about what in the living hell inspires such a funny yet gruesome (and lovable) short film. Check it out when you get a chance, […]

SXSW Review: WE ARE STILL HERE

There comes a time in every subgenre of horror, when as viewers, we’ve just seen it all. Slasher films lost their edge a few years into the ‘80s and the teenage whodunit horror films of the late ‘90s lost their appeal not long after making their mark. In the last few years, the haunted house […]

One of the most anticipated “midnight” movies at this year’s SXSW (South by Southwest) festival, is director Mickey Keating’s POD, the follow-up to Keating’s VERY entertaining 2013 low-budget yet high on thrills film RITUAL. While RITUAL was a scary and tense film about two people being stalked by a cult, POD deals with very different […]

Review: VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH

The October People are on a roll. Taking genre subjects and injecting them into well written and acted dramas, films like Jeremy Berg’s THE INVOKING and THE DEVICE have done a great job giving viewers an old school, slow-burn approach to storytelling, all while being completely engrossing while doing so. Now switching roles a bit, […]

SXSW Review: DEATHGASM

Coming out of SXSW like a freight train of bloody, metal as f&%* entertainment, Jason Lei Howden gory extravaganza that is DEATHGASM is a heavy metal splatterfest, guaranteed to please the most diehard horror fan. Led by memorable performances, out of this world effects and a soundtrack that refuses to NOT let you bang your head […]
