Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s Scream Queens Matters by Leonel VHS
25 November 2015 2:34 PM, PST
Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were memorable anthology series ranging from the wonderful reincarnation of the beloved The Twilight Zone to Tales From the Darkside and Amazing Stories to series based on well-known horror franchises: Friday the 13th begat its own series and A Nightmare On Elm Street brought forth the ultra-cheesy and fun Freddy’s Nightmares. I love that there are quite a number of series now on the air to choose from. But unfortunately, the quality varies between them on a great scale. With some of them now having established loyal audiences and rabid cult followings, in their »

Interview with 8 Films To Die For’s Bastard star Rebekah Kennedy
24 November 2015 12:29 PM, PST
When a film deals with two runaways, a suicidal cop and a newlywed couple of serial killers, you know you’re in for an experience. That’s the rundown of Bastard, one of the 2015 batch of After Dark’s 8 Films To Die For. A film that takes typical tropes and turns them upside down, the film is a unique one, and its star, Rebekah Kennedy, does an excellent job in the film as Betty, a runaway forced to step up and survive.
Bastard is a very unique film, the plot is one that we haven’t seen in every other genre film coming out these days, what attracted you to this one?
So, what attracted me initially to the project was the script and the character of Betty. Patrick wrote such an intense, »

Beyond Fright: Gaspar Noe’s Controversial Film Love Hits Bluray/DVD January 5th
24 November 2015 12:05 PM, PST
Gaspar Noe is definitely no stranger to making controversial films, with Enter The Void, Irreversible and other past movies of his being either completely out there or shocking and in your face. While his films aren’t for everyone, you can’t deny the fact that he makes films without compromise, without candy coating any topics he decides to address. The same can be said for his latest film, Love 3D, an intimate and sexual drama about a man, two women, and their intimate affair. After being celebrated at festivals and during its recent theatrical, Love is set to make its DVD/Bluray/Bluray 3D debut on January 5th, via Alchemy.
Murphy is an American living in Paris who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. Unaware of the seismic effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed. »

Scream Factory is doing a hell of a job putting out not only interesting titles by themselves, but double feature Blurays as well.

Bughuul Invades Your Home When Sinister 2 Hits Digital HD This December and Bluray/DVD In January
23 November 2015 12:52 PM, PST
While it was unfairly judged before even hitting theaters, Sinister 2 was quite easily one of my favorite horror films of the year (review). The Ciaran Foy-helmed sequel to Scott Derrickson’s 2012 Blumhouse shocker was a breathe of fresh air, filled with excellent performances from both James Ranson (interview) and Shannyn Sossamon and a good amount of scary as hell happenings. It’s a shame that it didn’t catch on as much as it should have, but viewers who missed out on the film can now rejoice, with the announcement of Sinister 2 hitting Digital HD on December 22nd and Bluray/DVD on January 12th, via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
In the aftermath of the shocking events of Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and her nine-year-old twin sons (real-life brothers Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves marked for death in a rural house as »

Rob Zombie’s Blood Soaked 31 Set To Premiere At Sundance Film Festival’s Midnight Section
23 November 2015 11:08 AM, PST
The 2016 Sundance Film Festival (which runs from January 21-31) is about to get bloody, when it hosts the world premiere of Rob Zombie’s evil clown carnival film, 31, in its Midnight section. From the small amount of photos already released by zombie, the film looks to be quite the hardcore one, and a return to the Devil’S Rejects approach for Zombie.
The much anticipated horror film was recently acquired by Alchemy, for a spring of 2016 theatrical release, which combined with the Sundance premiere announcement, means that it’s getting closer and closer to finally give excited fans a trailer.
31 tells the story of five carnies in 1976 kidnapped on the morning of Halloween and held hostage in a remote industrial Hell. While trapped, they are forced to play a violent game called 31. The mission is to survive 12 hours against an endless gang of grease-painted maniacs.
