    Fangoria’s Ken W. Hanley Set To Release Monster Self-Help Book, THE “I” IN EVIL This October!; EXCLUSIVE ARTWORK PREMIERE

    Forget us humans, we’ve got the pep talk, exercise and diet thing down. What the world needs, is a good dose of self-help for the creatures roaming the night. Obviously monsters like Dracula and the Gill-Man might have some self-esteem issues, and thanks to Fangoria/Starlog’s Ken W. Hanley and his upcoming THE I IN EVIL: […]

    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 […]

    Bluray review: WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD

    Sometimes, things you write can come back and bite you in the ass. Case in point: in my recent review of the greatly entertaining ZOMBIE KILLERS: ELEPHANT’S GRAVEYARD, I wrote about how enjoyable the subtlety and quiet tone of the film was. Feeling bombarded with fast paced, in your face zombie films, I prefer ones […]

    “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 […]

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 […]

Surrealist S&M Film THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY Heading To DVD/Bluray This September via Shout! Factory

Who doesn’t love a little arthouse s&m cinema in their lives? That’s a trick question, because everybody is into that stuff, right? Thankfully, those looking for a surrealistic film full of eroticism and mystery can now rejoice, with the announcement that Shout! Factory (in partnership with Sundance Selects) is set to release the critical hit […]

10Cent

Beyond Fright Review: 10 CENT PISTOL

10 CENT PISTOL opens up with two police officers investigating a silent alarm at the front door of Harris (Thomas Ian Nicholas, AMERICAN PIE, HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION). His reaction to find the police at his door proves to be of suspicion as the sweat rolls down and his need to get them to leave only encourages […]

Felt Still

Review: FELT

“My life is a fucking nightmare.” That opening line sets the tone for FELT, spoken in voice over by Amy (Amy Everson, who co-wrote the film with directed Jason Banker, (TOAD ROAD), based on experiences in her past) as she is walking barefoot down the street, sporting what looks to be a frog onesie. I’m […]
