Review: The Neon Dead (2015)

The Neon Dead

By Karolina Gruschka Going by the artwork and the trailer for VFX artist Torey Haas‘ (V/H/S Viral, Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie) first attempt at directing a feature, I had high hopes for The Neon Dead. I was expecting to see a serious horror film interlaced with comedic elements and a camp sensibility; the […]

Jump Scare-A-Go-Go! It’s the Rings Trailer

Posted on August 24, 2016 by Ben

By Ben Bussey I’ll be honest (and more than a little bit catty): I’d more or less forgotten this film was on its way. It’s barely two months until Rings, the long-delayed third film in the US take on the J-horror game-changer, is set to hit cinemas – yet until now we’d barely seen hide […]

Blu-ray Review: The Bloodstained Butterfly (1971)

bloodstained dvd

By Keri O’Shea When is a giallo not a giallo? Sure, the cinematic tradition is expected to deliver crime drama as per the print publications which gave us the term ‘giallo’ in the first place, but the expectation is also there of a certain aesthetic on our screens, usually invoking sexuality as well as criminality; […]

Review: The Shallows (2016)

The Shallows 2016 poster

By Ben Bussey Isn’t it well past time that sharks became truly scary again? Beyond the original Jaws, it’s debatable any film has ever presented those formidable sea dwellers as true objects of terror, and in recent years it’s pretty much a given that any film which features the creatures in the title is going […]

DVD Review: Tank 432 (Belly of the Bulldog) (2015)

Posted on August 16, 2016 by Ben

By Ben Bussey When the most prominent words in the PR of a new release are ‘from executive producer Ben Wheatley,’ two key thoughts immediately come to mind: firstly, it’s a shame that writer-director Nick Gillespie doesn’t get full credit for his own work (although he’s hardly the first director to be overshadowed by an […]

Bask in the Red & Green Glow of The Neon Dead Trailer & Sleeve Art

Posted on August 16, 2016 by Ben
The Neon Dead

By Ben Bussey Well, look at that – another new trailer catches our eye with a distinctly 80s vibe. After all, you can’t really see neon lighting – especially the classic red and green combo – without thinking of VHS-era horror; and going by the sleeve art and trailer below, The Neon Dead looks to […]

Ultra-Retro Cover Art & Trailer For House Of VHS, AKA Ghosts In The Machine

Posted on August 16, 2016 by Ben

By Ben Bussey It seems the current prevailing trend for all things 80s (analogue devices, flamboyant haircuts, frighteningly right-wing politics) is showing no signs of easing off all over the world. For the most recent evidence of this, look no further than this new promo material for the upcoming Australian release of House of VHS. […]

Arrow Video’s November Release Slate Includes The Driller Killer

Posted on August 12, 2016 by Ben

By Ben Bussey We all know the drill (pun absolutely intended): Arrow Video routinely bring us the most prestigious vintage title reissues, and their newly announced releases for this November are no exception, thanks in no small part to the inclusion of one of the most notorious video nasty titles: The Driller Killer. Abel Ferrara’s […]

Neo-Giallo Francesca Coming To Region 1 DVD From Unearthed Films

Francesca Unearthed Films

By Ben Bussey J&B time again! Having made their name with 2013’s Sonno Profondo, Argentinian giallo afficionados Luciano and Nicolás Onetti have done it again with Francesca, and if there’s any movie you’ll see this year which you’ll swear was made no earlier than 1972, it’s this one (although from the looks of things The […]

Isn’t It Good The Duffer Brothers Didn’t Get To Direct Stephen King’s It?

Posted on August 10, 2016 by Ben

By Ben Bussey Up until this moment, BAH may have been the only horror-related site to have not published anything on the subject of Stranger Things. Plenty of Netflix original films and TV shows have become talking points, but few if any have made quite the same sensation as this 1980s-set drama which manages to […]

Jason Refuses To Stay Dead – New Director In Talks For Friday The 13th Reboot, Take 2

Posted on August 9, 2016 by Ben

by Ben Bussey Maybe it’s time to just leave the most prolific big screen serial killer of the 1980s in his grave, along with his peers. Seems like for time immemorial barely a few months have passed without whispers of new activity in the Friday the 13th, Halloween and even Nightmare on Elm Street franchises, […]

Review: Chopping Block (2016)

Posted on August 8, 2016 by Ben
Chopping Block

By Ben Bussey I’ve reviewed more than my fair share of no-budget horror movies over the years, and it often proves a challenging business. The same complaints come up time and again; horrendous production values frequently render the action almost impossible to follow, and more often than not the subpar writing and acting mean that […]

Horror Comedy Antibirth Spawns An Eye-Catching Trailer

Posted on August 4, 2016 by Ben

By Ben Bussey The last time I can remember Natasha Lyonne taking a role in a horror movie, it was… erm… Blade: Trinity. But let’s not dwell on that particular misstep, as from the look of things Antibirth is something altogether different, and almost certainly a far, far better film. I know, I shouldn’t rush […]

Taika Waititi’s Hunt For The Wilderpeople Hitting UK Cinemas September

Posted on August 3, 2016 by Ben
Hunt for the Wilderpeople

By Ben Bussey From the look of things, this is about as much a horror movie as Nekromantik is a PG-rated rom-com, but we couldn’t let the new movie from the director of What We Do In The Shadows go by unremarked, could we? Taika Waititi – currently at work on the third Thor movie […]

Blu-Ray Review: Female Prisoner Scorpion – The Complete Collection

scorpion arrow box

By Keri O’Shea Imagine a sequence of films, emanating from Japan over forty years ago, which melded – literally – riotously strong female characters with insurrection, violence, sexuality and even the odd dash of social commentary. ‘Women in prison’ films (for the most part) like no other, the Female Convict movies (or ‘Female Prisoner’, in […]

Wolf Creek The Series

By Ben Bussey Greg McLean’s outback ordeal horror Wolf Creek has proved to have a greater legacy than many of us could have predicted. Aside from being a cult sensation on release, it’s spawned a sequel, and now a spin-off TV series – which Eureka Entertainment are now set to release to the UK. The […]

Blu-Ray Review: Solaris (1972)

Posted on August 1, 2016 by Ben

By Nia Edwards-Behi For my sins, I’ve not seen nearly as much canonical European ‘art’ cinema as I probably should have, all things considered. I am, however, a big fan of one Ingmar Bergman, and when he’s claimed that Andrei Tarkovsky is “the greatest”, then really it’s a bit of a crime that it’s taken […]
