Synapse, who have been all the ball of late with Blu-ray releases for The Exterminator, Frankenhooker and Intruder, have scooped up three movies from Argentinian director Adrian Garcia Bogliano. The director of Cold Sweat (Sudor Frio) has had his earlier movies I’ll Never Die Alone (2008), Watch ‘Em Die (2009) and Rooms For Tourists (2004) […]
Without a doubt one of the most eagerly awaited genre flicks of the year has to be Chillerama. The anthology, with segments directed by Adam Green, Tim Sullivan, Joe Lynch and Adam Rifkin, recently debuted on VOD (if you could find it). Next month, however, will see it unleashed onto Blu-ray and DVD through Image […]
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 […]
Midnight Movie is one of those films that I was aware of, and tempted to buy several times, but never actually got around to it. I had spoken to friends that had seen it, and really enjoyed it, but I also had friends that loathed it. I didn’t skip it on purpose, it’s just one […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Vicious Circle Films look set to release director Bears Fonté’s cyber-thriller iCrime on September 27th. You can check out the official trailer below.
The latest acquisition by Breaking Glass Pictures’ Vicious Circle Films is The Hide all the way from good old Blighty. In fact it is set not too far from where I lived as a wee lad, although I believe it was filmed elsewhere. Still, this looks quite interesting from the preview. Film Four and ICA […]
It may have been a little longer in arriving than many of us would have liked, but REC 2 is ready to hit the shelves. July 12th will see the sequel to the 2007 Zombie/Infection movie released on DVD.
There was a wait over just over 10 years between Scream 3 and Scream 4, but now the latest in the franchise that breathed some new life into the genre is set to hit Blu-ray and DVD. We’ll have to wait until October 4th, although that will coincide nicely with Halloween which will be just […]
Palisades Tartan imprint Asia Extreme seemed to have been away from the game for a while. The company that gave us the excellent Vengeance Trilogy release are now back with the Chinese shocker The Matrimony. It is set for a July 26th release on Blu-ray and DVD.
I know what you’re saying. Another zombie movie? Saying that the market is over-saturated with zombie films right now would be an understatement. Though I’ve personally had a life-long obsession with the sub-genre, today the world has gone zombie crazy. Unfortunately, most of these films barely meet even watchable standards. Most that are solid entries […]
Director Sean Tretta (The Great American Snuff Film, Death of a Ghost Hunter, and The Death Factory Bloodletting) along with producer and star of the film Tiffany Shepis (Nightmare Man, Night of the Demons) bring to you the DVD release of The Frankenstein Syndrome on July 5th via MTI Video. A modern re-imagining of Mary […]
We’re barely three months into 2011 and this is already proving to be a huge year for fans of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Not only did his long out of print, cult favorite Santa Sangre get a lavish DVD/blu-ray release from the fine people at Severin (which I covered here) but now Anchor Bay will be giving […]
From Image Entertainment, one of the leading distributors of horror entertainment, comes the chilling new horror movie The Inheritance. Family bonds will be tested when a young group of cousins are brought together for a chance to claim their inheritance. They are all in for quite a shock when they learn just what has been […]
Hey all, this is only the second iteration of this column and this is going to be a short one as there are not nearly as many as worthwhile deals this time around. Still, there are some bargains out there that may be worth your while (and money) so let’s have at it:
Us horror fans collect shit. We like to collect. I don’t know any horror fans that could not be described as hoarders. It can be comics, t-shirts, toys (or “action figures” if you can’t publicly admit you still spend your paycheck on toys), memorabilia and/or the films themselves.
