Inspired By True Story Film HANGMAN Heading to DVD/Bluray This February!!

I’m a sucker for films that hold the “Inspired by True Events” stamp on them. Sure, most of them are VERY far from what the source crime happened to be, but still, it’s the quickest way to instantly get under my skin for a terrifying time. It’s with that approach that filmmaker Adam Mason’s HANGMAN […]

Bluray Review: THE HONEYMOON KILLERS

Leonard Kastle’s 1969 crime drama THE HONEYMOON KILLERS is a true American classic, and it’s given the Criterion treatment with the new Bluray release of the very influential film focusing on the duo dubbed “The Lonely Hearts Killers”. Like every release from Criterion, the HD transfer looks immaculate, sounds great, and is supplemented with a […]

THE SOPRANOS’ Michael Imperioli Leads Based On True Events Haunted Neighborhood Film FORECLOSURE; Hitting VOD/DVD This February

If there is a show that still scares the living hell out of me, even as an adult, that show is Unsolved Mysteries. It just gets under my skin every single time I watch it. One episode of that show in particular, is the one titled, “Black Hope“, an episode that revolved around a series […]

Found footage is in full effect, with entries like WILLOW CREEK, DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and the upcoming (and VERY good) CREEP all have either hit or getting ready to hit your screens just within this year.

DVD/Bluray Review: DEVIL’S KNOT

The Movie: You can very easily read a more thorough review of Atom Egoyan’s DEVIL’S KNOT, a take on the courtroom time period of the trial and wrongful conviction of three boys based on their love for metal and the occult here , which would say exactly what it is: a film that while full of […]

Beyond Fright: WEST MEMPHIS THREE Film, DEVIL’S KNOT heading to BLURAY/DVD This June

Image Entertainment sent us over the official release info for their June 10th Bluray/DVD release of DEVIL’S KNOT, bringing the true crime story of the Robin Hood Hills murders home. While the film itself could have benefited from more of a focus on the wrongly convicted trio, it is an effective courtroom drama that gives […]

Beyond Fright Review: DEVIL’S KNOT

It’s never easy to separate the truth from fiction, or at times, understand why some biopic films make the decision to focus on the wrong individuals instead of the people whose lives were truly affected. While the film itself is somewhat well done in the whole scheme of filmmaking and is an effective court-drama, DEVIL’S […]
