Bluray Review: The Squad

9 hours ago

Scream Factory’s lineup of original releases have been somewhat of a hit or miss thing for viewers. Some, like the French Lovecraft-ian Dead Shadows were met with moderately positive praise and some of the them, such as The Monkey’S Paw was not. Personally, I’m a big supporter of the gang at Scream Factory releasing these either foreign acquisitions or like in the case of Larry Fessenden’s Beneath, films that have made their debut on horror-centric channels such as Chiller TV. Sure, some of them might not be the Best films around, but for every one that is just okay, there’s an entry that does a solid job telling a genre story with a deeper context than what would be expected. Jaime Osorio Marquez’s 2011 Columbian thriller El páramo is the newest import to get the Scream Factory treatment, with a brand new name, The Squad, »

Image Entertainment Set To Release The Device To DVD This December; Impressive Set of Commentary Guests

16 hours ago

Jeremy Berg’s The Device was one of my favorite genre films of this year (review), and it’s the dedication of Berg, co-writer/producer John Portanova, and producer Matt Medisch (known collectively as The October People) that made The Device, their previous film The Invoking and basically everything they have had their hands in really give of a genuine love for the genre/craft approach to filmmaking. Bypassing typical low-budget genre filmmaking full of the same thing, Berg, Portanova and Medisch put out films that feel like they would fit perfectly alongside more subtle genre films, ones that get under your skin more than just blasting you in the face like a lot of others do.

Like The Invoking, the upcoming DVD release of The Device is looking to give fans of the film an experience that goes past just the film itself, with a handful of  commentaries (including »

Bogliano’s Late Phases Gets New Poster; Full Release Info

17 hours ago

I find it incredibly interesting that Adriån Garcîa Bogliano’s follow-up to the acclaimed Here Comes The Devil is a werewolf movie, but if it shows anything, it’s that there’s a large amount of versatility to his work. The creature horror film, Late Phases is set to be released by Dark Sky Films on November 21st and the buzz on the film has been pretty positive, especially regarding Stake Land/We Are What We Are‘s Nick Dimici as the film’s lead. The combination of Dimici, who is always great in everything he does, and the idea of a solid werewolf movie finally arriving is enough to get me very anxious for it. Plus, the film also boasts a pretty impressive supporting cast, with Cheap ThrillsEthan Embry, Lance Guest, and even Tom Noonan showing up in there.

Dark Sky debuted a brand new poster for the film today, »

Review: The Scribbler

21 October 2014 4:55 AM, PDT

The Scribbler is one of those films that is both visually stunning and odd, which can actually be a great combination, and mandatory viewing for those souls who find themselves wanting to venture out and watch something different, and exciting.

Early in the film, we meet Suki (Katie Cassidy). Suki suffers from multiple personality disorder, and is admitted into a very creepy home for the mentally ill known as Juniper Tower. She comes into contact with some interesting residents of the home who all suffer from various disorders as well. As a form of treatment for her ailment, Suki partakes in an experimental procedure called Siamese Burn. The therapy is a weird, electroshock-like device that is supposed to destroy one of her personalities every time she uses it. However, with each use Suki finds herself passing out, waking up to a new Juniper Tower residents death, and one of her »

Screamfest Review: Julia

21 October 2014 4:38 AM, PDT

Ashley C. Williams in Julia

Making its U.S. debut at Screamfest, Matthew A. Brown’s dark thriller, Julia is a force to be reckoned with. A film so visually and emotional resonant, that it transcends any boundaries or limitations that are typically placed on the type of genre that the film falls under. A rare gem, led by one brave and emotionally powerful performance, a story that hooks you in and doesn’t let go, and enough style to fill two movies, let alone one .

Starring The Human Centipede‘s Ashley C. Williams as the film’s title character, Julia, Matthew A. Brown’s follows a young, soft-spoken plastic surgeon’s assistant who very early on in the film, falls victim to a group of men’s gang-raping. Left for dead, Julia slowly makes her way back home, and does her best to resume her life, but finds it impossible to do so. »

Review: See No Evil 2

20 October 2014 6:45 PM, PDT

I’ll be the first person to say that 2006’s See No Evil didn’t really warrant a sequel. It has its core fanbase, but for the most part, its place in the $5 Bluray bin says a lot about my feelings for the WWE slasher film, so when American Mary directors Jen and Sylvia Soska were tapped to directed a sequel to that film, a good eight years later, I’d like to think that a good amount of people were left scratching their horror-loving heads. When casting was announced and stars Danielle Harris (Halloween 4/5, the Hatchet series), Katherine Isabelle (American Mary, Ginger Snaps) and The Divide/The Call star Michael Eklund were thrown out there, it added an even greated level of confusion to the mix, due to the first film featuring a cast of relatively unknown actors. Things just didn’t seem in favor of the talented twin directors, »

Double Feature Adventures: American Muscle (2014) & Ms. 45 (1980)

20 October 2014 5:02 PM, PDT

It’s been a few weeks since the last Double Feature Adventures article, and with good reason. Natty’s been off working as the Mayor of Boca Raton, Florid and well, I’ve been in an underground bunker, preparing for the inevitable apocalypse. Ok, so none of that is accurate, Natty has been hitting up Disneyland and various other sights and I’ve been watching an insane amount of movie, so scheduling just didn’t line up until this wonderful double feature, and it’s a good one. We like to put a theme to our Double Feature Adventures articles, and if there was one for the two films we picked this week, it would be good old fashioned Revenge.

My love for revenge films is an epic one, and there are always so many to choose from, but I thought it would be fun to show Natty two that she hadn’t seen yet, »

Review: Housebound

20 October 2014 1:57 PM, PDT

Housebound

There’s an excellent feeling when you watch a film that you just know will go down as a horror classic. The moment the film is over, the first thing on your mind, is to call every friend you have to tell them what you just experienced and do your best to spread the love for the film. It rarely happens, and for every film like that, there is typically around 12 other ones that don’t give you a feeling like that whatsoever. Thankfully though, Gerard Johnstone’s Housebound is not only a very entertaining debut feature, but Is one of those films that gives you such a great ride, that immediately upon finishing the film, it’ll be an instant addition to your favorite films list and an immediate classic.

ManCrates.com Asks Jerry Smith “What Would You Put In Your Horror Movie Survival Crate?”; Obviously, Weirdness Ensues

20 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT

As the holiday season approaches and we’re all left scrambling to figure out what to get our significant others (if you have significant others, if you don’t Keep It That Way…jk), it can be a hell of a time cracking the code that is making your wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend happy with whatever you choose. It can be especially hard when being for me. I know this, because I am on, and I’m one of the most difficult people to buy things for, not because I’m a dick, but because I’m just very particular about what I like. Actually, it’s because I’m a dick, but I digress.

With all of that being said, the folks at Man Crates, Gifts for men,  are looking to get rid of that problem, and now they’re delving deeper into not only pleasing men with some manly gifts, »
