    We all have heroes, and this week, one of the true horror heroes and legends, Wes Craven, passed away after fighting brain cancer. To say that Craven’s passing has affected the horror community would be an understatement, a statement that just doesn’t articulate how much of an absent we’ll have from here on out. The […]

    Bluray Review: BACKCOUNTRY & THE HARVEST

    While Scream Factory has earned the reputation for putting out fan-favorites and long lost genre films, one of the many things that impresses me on a regular basis, is how good the films they acquire or release via their partnership with IFC Midnight are. Films like THE BABADOOK, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, and now two of the most […]

    Earlier this year, during SXSW, we were able to catch Jason Lei Howden’s heavy metal splatterfest DEATHGASM (review).

The official trailer for the film has now dropped […]

Bluray Review: SCARECROWS

Let’s just be honest and get this one out of the way: you should be doing back-flips over this excellent release from the horror genre’s buddies, Scream Factory. There are fun titles that come out and are enjoyable, and then there are films like 1988’s gory and terrifying SCARECROWS, a film so under-appreciated, that this […]

Review: THE POLTERGEIST OF BORLEY FOREST

Oh boy. Walking into a film like THE POLTERGEIST OF BORLEY FOREST, you find yourself expecting either a found footage entry akin to everything we’ve seen in the last few years, or another haunting film that well, we’ve all seen time and time again. While it’s definitely not another found footage film, it IS the […]

Bluray Review: SPRING

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s SPRING has taken the world by storm, with its “romantic love story that happens to have a monster in it” angle blowing people away, and rightfully so. It’s a beautiful and poignant film, full of honesty, not only in its acting but in its writing and cinematography as well. While […]

It’s the perfect combination of originality and also being a love letter to the films of Fulci, Gordon and other trailblazing horror auteurs (review). It’s definitely a solid ghost story, […]
