    V/H/S Segment Gets Feature Treatment in First SiREN Trailer; Arriving This December!

    David Bruckner’s “Amateur Night” was one of the real standout parts of 2012’s V/H/S. Doing a great job of setting characters up for a good time and paying off with one hell of a second half, the segment was a lot of fun and quite terrifying at the same time. Now, with DANCE OF THE […]

    31 Hits DVD/Bluray/Digital HD This December; Comes With Four hour Documentary

    Rob Zombie’s latest film, 31, has had the effect most of his films tend to have: a pretty divisive one. Personally, I LOVED the film (review) and think it’s one of the most entertaining horror films in a long, long time. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s brutal as hell. Zombie created a true horror […]

Jay Kay talks THE GREASY STRANGLER with Stars Elizabeth De Razzo and Michael St. Michaels!!

A truly distinctive and unique vision takes luck and a variety of factors to come together while swimming in a sea of uniformity. Perhaps the most unique, dirty and hilariously twisted film on this year’s film festival circuit comes from the minds of Jim Hosking, Toby Harvard, DRAFTHOUSE FILMS, ROOK FILMS, SPECTREVISION and TIMPSON FILMS.

SEVEN More Scream Factory Releases You Don’t Want To Miss!!

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 […]
