    NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA is making its theatrical and digital HD run this week (it also hits VOD and DVD/BD on August 11th), and it’s quite the action film, filled to the brim with Viking fights, tough as hell villains/heroes and is as entertaining as action films get. We thought it would be fun […]

    “Another Hero Gone”: Jerry Remembers Roddy Piper

    I’m sitting here, still shocked by the news of Roddy Piper’s passing. It hit harder than I would expect, because it reminded me of childhood, and how so much of mine was filled with Piper. Sitting down with my older brother,  we would watch every WWF pay-per-view event, and with  how much of my time […]

    Fantasia Film Fest review: THE DEMOLISHER

    There’s a level of accomplishment that very few films are able to pull  off: being able to be striking and effective without having to rely on continual dialogue. These days, the typical audience member tends to put their money and attention towards films that are fast-paced and have a lack of room to breathe, and […]

    Beyond Fright Review: OLIVER, STONED

    The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler. Adult men who refuse to grow up and partake in toilet humor rack up box office tickets and seemingly influence a generation of young adults surrounded by statistics provided by […]

    El Rey’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series Returns This August; New Faces Along For the Ride

    The first season of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series was full of unexpected twists, making the show stand on its own, venturing far off from the Robert Rodriguez film it was based on. It’s was definitely an interesting debut season,which from we were recently sent via El Rey, will be taken into even crazier […]

Horror Real Estate: 8 Places Horror Films Have Taught Us Not To Live In

There’s something eerie and foreboding about the towns, cities and locations of the following films that our own Joshua Soriano sent us. While a lot of horror films focus on people and events, these films, for one reason or another embodies their horror in their locale’s as well. I love this list, and think that […]

Giallo Homage THE EDITOR Finds Its Way To DVD/Bluray This September Via Scream Factory!!

For those who are familiar with the imaginative and very talented Astron-6 gang (filmmakers Matthew Kennedy, Adam Brooks, Conor Sweeney, Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie), the next logical step in their repertoire of films (having previously tackled FATHER’S DAY and MANBORG) would be to try their hand at paying homage to the Giallo subgenre of horror, […]

Fantasia Film Fest Review: SOME KIND OF HATE

Bullying has been an absolute virus, steadily grown throughout our nation’s schools within the last decade. Whether it be over the way a kid looks, the type of music he listens to, or hell, just because he exists, the fact is that it’s grown to astronomical proportions, and it’s only a matter of time before […]

Comet

Beyond Fright Review: COMET

We’ve all been there, crossing paths with someone who is able to completely take you back and keep you enthralled just at the idea of spending more time talking to them. That awkward feeling in your stomach and the adrenaline-filled, almost child-like excitement that makes you think or at least hope that you’ll be able […]

Review: ISOLATION 119

ISOLATION 119 is an experiment in filmmaking for director Kevin Baker, who also plays Jack in the film. He started it as a Kickstarter project, promoting it as a do it yourself indie film that, if successfully funded, could help encourage the everyday person pick up a camera and film their own movies even without […]

OBSERVANCE Black

Fantasia Film Fest Review: OBSERVANCE

The psychological thriller subgenre of horror has always been one that either works or it doesn’t. When it hits, you can either get a JACOB’S LADDER or you can get,..well…a GOTHIKA. It’s hard for a film that falls somewhere within that kind of film to not be paint by numbers, having spooky and oddly random metaphorical […]

SYNCHRONICITY 2

Fantasia Film Fest Review: SYNCHRONICITY

When 2007’s THE SIGNAL first hit audiences, it did a hell of a job showing a small glimpse of the capabilities of the film’s trio of writer/directors, David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry. Each director’s segment felt completely different from the previous director’s, and there was a sense of promise that you felt upon […]
