I’ve somewhat seen Blood Rage prior to my Arrow Blu-ray viewing. I attended the 2014 Exhumed Films 24 Hour Horror-thon, which is 24 straight hours in a theater viewing horror and sleaze displayed in gorgeous 35mm. However, it was so late into the night, and so hot in the theater that I was watching it from […]

UNSEEN ON HOME VIDEO FOR OVER 30 YEARS, THE CANADIAN HORROR CLASSIC MAKES ITS DIGITAL HOME VIDEO DEBUT FROM SYNAPSE FILMS!
This is another Blu-ray release, that I wish existed a year prior. Last summer, we recorded a retrospective podcast series, covering the entirety of the Sleepaway Camp series, and could have really used a loaded, UNCUT Blu-ray release of the first film. We made due with what was available, though, and now I can revisit […]

Meanwhile, Burt Flemming’s nephew is also in the area, throwing a party in the cabin […]
In case you were unaware, IT’S OCTOBER! You’re probably going to get tired of hearing me say that, to be honest, but it is, and now you know. As part of the October celebration, we’ll be doing a few giveaways. Up for grabs this time are two DVD copies of Bloody Homecoming, recently released by […]
Don’t Go to the Reunion is an independent film, an homage to popular slasher fiction of the 1980’s and 90’s and has a budget next to nil. You can pretty much guess all three of these facts by the title alone. The title itself plays on the “Don’t” subgenre popular during the late 70’s and […]
HazMat (2013) Starring: Norbert Velez, Todd Bruno, Aniela McGuinness Writer & Director: Lou Simon Story: Scary Antics is one of those hidden camera shows, where people walk around darkly lit buildings, unknowing that they are on camera, looking ridiculous. For a special episode, a group of friends take their messed up buddy […]
The WWE logo splashing across the screen during a trailer or promo, doesn’t exactly fill this potential viewer with confidence. Sure, they’ve had some watchable(at best) films, especially in the horror genre, such as See No Evil, but they also have duds such as The Marine 3, and 12 Rounds 2. In 2013, I was […]
Okay. Back to the beginning.
When you get word of a horror project on Kickstarter the first thing that comes to mind is who’s begging for money to fund their chintzy art project now. That simply isn’t the case with the subject of this plea. It has come time to fund a potentially rad piece of filmmaking. Let me be one […]
With an actual Friday the 13th happening today, it would be fitting for us to look back on the film that reinvented slasher genre. Most people usually focus on Jason because he is a larger icon and more profitable in the horror world. Yet he wasn’t the start of the franchise (directly), Mrs. Voorhees was […]
Porkchop from Independent Entertainment and Alternative Cinema is a well-done satire homage to classic low budget 80s slasher cinema. Directed and produced by Eamon Hardiman, a native of Charleston, West Virginia, a location not to far from The Liberal Dead’s main headquarters in eastern Kentucky. The film revolves around a group of six young campers […]
Medium Raw: Night of the Wolf is an attempt at an jack of all trades film that starts off revolving around the story of a rookie cop named John Morgan (Andrew Cymek – also wrote and directed) hunting a serial killer nicknamed “The Wolf” whom was responsible for the brutal murder of his little sister. […]
A small town sheriff’s worst nightmare comes true when his homicidal son escapes from a psychiatric hospital. An intense manhunt ensues as the dark secret behind the son’s evil past becomes revealed in Frayed, a retro slasher from directors Norbert Caoili and Rob Portmann.
Much like the majority of other horror sub-genres, the slasher film is basically dead in America. I don’t mean dead in that it does not exist but dead in the fact that it has no life left in it. I know that I may be in the minority saying this as there are plenty of […]
