The entity that is the werewolf film needs an enema. A while back, around the release date of one of the new Twilight films, Ted Brown and myself composed a list of 30 vampire and werewolf films we felt people should watch, instead of wasting money on the Twilight franchise. To a genre fan, this […]
Synapse are on the ball once again. Having already lined up a Blu-ray release for Maniac Cop and the recently released The Exterminator they now bring us Frankenhooker. Frank Henenlotter, who also gave us the terrific Basket Case and Brain Damage movies, directed Frankenhooker back in 1990 so this is going to be a treat […]
There’s a large amount of Blus (both horror and non-horror) coming out this week. I tried to condense it down to the most important HORROR releases, though I am known to just write whatever I think you guys might like. Star Wars and Citizen Kane are the big classic releases this week, and for decent […]
There’s not much to say about TrollHunter that hasn’t already been said, in terms of how wonderful this film is. You can read The Liberal Dead’s review by Shawn Savage here. I can’t say that I “loved” TrollHunter but I can say that I really enjoyed watching it. It’s a totally new experience in the found-footage genre, usually in […]
The Howling has always played second fiddle to John Landis’ remarkable “An American Werewolf In London” in the battle for lycanthrope supremacy, at least in my eyes. I do, however, acknowledge it’s deserved spot in cinematic history. It was released at a time, not unlike today, where the werewolf film was practically non-existent. It was […]
Fans of SyFy’s ever popular show Ghost Hunters will no doubt be pleased to learn that Season 6 Pt 1 is all set to hit 3 disc DVD and Blu-ray on September 13th from Image Entertainment. So if you missed out on any spooky shenanigans this will be your chance to catch up!
Here’s some great news for fans of 80s’ horror, those fine upstanding folk at Image Entertainment will be releasing the Midnight Madness Series starting in September. They have a veritable truckload of classics from Lakeshore Entertainment coming our way, including the release of Vamp on Blu-ray. Others include Children of the Corn, Hellraiser and Creepshow […]
Now this is some exciting news, tinged as it is with an air of nostalgia for me, as those fine folk at Synapse are set to release the ultra-violent classick The Exterminator. I remember watching this, along with Warning Sign, Poltergeist and many others, on the wonder that was Laserdisc. Believe me, it stuck in […]
Want to win a couple of newly released Blu Rays? That’s good, because we want to give them to you. The only thing that makes a horror double feature better, is viewing said double feature in crystal clear 1080p, on the most amazing home video platform to date.
Over here in the land of The Liberal Dead, we have all found Stake Land to be one of the better vampire/apocalyptic films in recent years. While some may love it more than others, this film is worthy of some sense of admiration. With its aupoicious begininng at the Toronto Film Festival, Stake Land has […]
Dracula 2000 is an earlier film from Patrick Lussier, of My Bloody Valentine 3D/Drive Angry 3D fame. It takes the mythology of Dracula, and attempts to bring it into the new millennium. I’m a fan of Lussier’s films, perhaps even this one to an extent, but it’s definitely not without it’s faults. The story is […]
September 6th will see the release of Adam Winguard’s A Horrible Way To Die through Anchor Bay Entertainment. Aside from having a wonderful title this looks to be quite an exciting release that I know I will be keeping an eye out for. Check out below for the trailer, a new clip and a selection […]
When I first saw the trailers for Source Code many months ago, I had my reservations about it. It didn’t wow me or make me want to build up any personal hype for a film in which many of the ideas have already been used (The Matrix, Speed). Source Code was screened at the SXSW […]
Takashi Miike has done it again with his latest violent installment called 13 Assassins. The story focuses on a small group of elite samurai who are given orders by the Shogun to destroy a sadistic lord that rules part of Japan. This is Feudal Japan so territories are owned by lords and they (the lords) […]
It seems like just yesterday, the horror community as a whole were waiting with baited breath to catch their first glimpse at AMC’s live action recreation of what has since become one of the most popular comic books on the face of the planet. Halloween 2010 would unleash The Walking Dead upon us all. A […]
Coming September 13th to Blu-ray and DVD is the release of Starz Original series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, and it’s coming with a 3D bonus feature. I have always been a huge fan of the 1960 movie but didn’t get the opportunity to catch this when it aired, so I am eager to check […]
Some of you may not be a fan of Diablo Cody’s Jennifer’s Body. Some of you have legitimate complaints, and others just hate for the sake of hating. Be that as it may, I personally enjoyed the film for what it was. A creature feature with witty dialog, and a sexy lead actresses. If you’ve […]
Sucker Punch is the new film from Zack Snyder, who was responsible for the Dawn of the Dead remake, 300, and Watchmen. I’m a pretty big fan of Watchmen, but I personally wasn’t floored by 300, at least not as much as most people seem to have been. Judging by the early theatrical trailers though, […]
The good folks over at Blu-Ray.com have announced that Lionsgate will be releasing Peter Jackson’s early film Dead Alive, also referred to as Braindead, on Blu-Ray this October. Details on the disc are non existent at this moment. What we do know, though, is that the disc will arrive on October 4th, right in time […]
