First Trailer for WWE and the Soskas’ See No Evil 2

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ben
See No Evil 2

By Nia Edwards-Behi When news broke that the Soskas would be directing See No Evil 2, I knew I’d have to watch See No Evil. It hadn’t previously really appealed to me, but I know I’ll watch anything the Soskas do, so a date with Jacob Goodnight was necessary homework ahead of their third film. [...]

Well, that’s a new look for you Mr Leprechaun… (updated with video)

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ben
Leprechaun

By Ben Bussey Alright – I doubt there are too many of us who hold Leprechaun particularly close to our hearts, are there? I mean, it was a fun but utterly lightweight series, first and foremost an excuse for Warwick Davies to wear silly clothes, make a plethora of bad puns whilst speaking in rhyme, and [...]

Crawl Or Die creeping onto DVD and iTunes

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ben
Crawl or Die

By Ben Bussey It’s been just over a year since we first heard about a cool-looking low budget sci-fi horror movie called Crawl Bitch Crawl, following a badass heroine down a tight tunnel whist pursued by aliens. Now, under the more PC-sounding title of Crawl Or Die, this reportedly uber-claustrophobic movie is set to be unleashed to [...]

Brit Horror K-Shop set to take a bite out of chav culture

Posted on July 24, 2014 by Ben
K-Shop

By Ben Bussey Anyone who’s ever braved a kebab in the wee small hours whilst heavily intoxicated will surely have taken a moment to ponder just what the meat they’re putting in their mouth might actually be. In this instance, it seems they would be very right to give such pause for thought, for as [...]

Soska Sisters finally going comic book movie with Painkiller Jane

Posted on July 23, 2014 by Ben
Painkiller Jane

By Ben Bussey Dammit, those wacky Soska Sisters don’t wait around, do they? We haven’t even had a glimpse of their third feature film yet, and here they are announcing their fifth? At San Diego Comic Con and to The Hollywood Reporter, no less? Dead Hooker in a Trunk feels like a long time ago. [...]

“Something bad happened in the woods” – Honeymoon trailer

Posted on July 22, 2014 by Ben
honeymoon-poster

By Ben Bussey Could it be? Is there a new horror film on the way that’s actually going to do something different with the cabin in the woods? Based on this trailer for upcoming Magnet release Honeymoon, I’d say it’s a possibility. I get the feeling this is one of those trailers that just stops [...]

Comic Review: Under The Flesh #1

Posted on July 22, 2014 by Ben
TEMPLATE PAGE SET UP.indd

Review by Svetlana Fedotov After munching on the brains of horror entertainment for a solid few years, it seems that all things zombie and undead have finally burned off into the horror atmosphere. While Walking Dead may still be going strong, the hordes of movies, toys, and internet hot topics have switched their voracious appetite [...]

Abertoir 2014 promises zombies, trains, and much depravity and corruption!

Posted on July 21, 2014 by Ben
dead snow red vs dead

By Ben Bussey I’m going to come right out and say it: Abertoir Horror Festival is our favourite event of the year here at Brutal As Hell. Yes, there might be just a smidgen of nepotism there given the festival co-director is our very own Nia Edwards-Behi – plus the 80s disco event mentioned below [...]

Help help, here come the Bears… Grizzly trailer

Grizzly

By Ben Bussey Here’s a trailer for a killer bear movie. Why are you still reading this? Synopsis, if you really need one beyond ‘killer bear movie:’ “The pic centers around two estranged brothers (James Marsden, Tom Jane) who reconcile on a camping trip with their girlfriends. Once in the remote wilderness, however, things go [...]

Blu-Ray Review: The Last Horror Film (AKA Fanatic) (1982)

Posted on July 20, 2014 by Ben
The Last Horror Film - 88 Films Blu-ray

Review by Ben Bussey This is a really rather strange film. Okay, so it’s a 1982 low budget slasher starring the same key players as Maniac; perhaps it goes without saying that it’s rather strange. But this reunion of Joe Spinnell and Caroline Munro is in a world of its own for strangeness. The Last [...]

Film Review: The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

Posted on July 19, 2014 by Ben
The Purge Anarchy

Review by Dustin Hall The Purge: Anarchy is one of those rare sequels we can pretty much universally agree is better than the first film. Set in the open world of the new Founding Fathers’ America, it escapes the confines of the home invasion motif the original was trapped in, and moves us out into [...]

Film Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

Posted on July 18, 2014 by Keri
Dawn Poster

By Keri O’Shea Planet of the Apes remains one of my favourite films, a post-apocalyptic movie which only reveals itself as such in its closing reels. It’s a cinematic moment which retains a hell of a lot of its original impact too, even though it’s now familiar enough for us to poke fun at (Family [...]

Cult Renaissance! Dual review – The Sacrament (2013) and Apocalyptic (2014)

Posted on July 17, 2014 by Ben
The_Sacrament

By Tristan Bishop You wait for one found footage movie about a cult and then two come along together. Three, actually, if you count one of the episodes of V/H/S 2. It seems like an odd subgenre to suddenly blossom – horror films about cults have been surprisingly thin on the ground until now, with [...]

Sion Sono’s Tokyo Tribe looks stark raving mad in the best way

Posted on July 17, 2014 by Ben
Tokyo Tribe

By Ben Bussey I must confess, I’ve only seen a couple of Sion Sono’s films: Guilty of Romance and Cold Fish. Both films were very impressive pieces of work, but – no word of a lie – I felt depressed for days after watching them, which I guess is why I haven’t sought out any [...]

Stress Position invites us to figure out what the f*** it is

Posted on July 17, 2014 by Ben
Stress Position

By Ben Bussey Just had word from BrinkVision of their upcoming DVD and VOD release Stress Position, which promises to bring a somewhat unusual take on that subject that has been at the forefront of horror for the past decade: torture. As it appears to be a pseudo-documentary with the actors using their real names, it threatens [...]

Daniel Radcliffe’s ‘Horns’ Coming This Halloween

By Keri O’Shea To give credit where credit’s due to Daniel Radcliffe, since the last Harry Potter movie came out in 2011 (which could have been the end of his career, really) he’s worked hard to establish himself as an actor who can do a lot more. Both on the stage (getting naked in Equus [...]
