By Ben Bussey Everyone always goes on about how Night of the Living Dead, Last House on the Left and Texas Chain Saw Massacre changed everything; but years earlier, one low budget independent filmmaker blazed a trail which would at least in part pave the way for what messrs Romero, Craven and Hooper would do […]

Frightfest 2016

By Ben Bussey Frightfest (or, to use its official new title, Horror Channel FrightFest) is only about a month away, and a newly released sizzle reel has given us some indication of what attendees can look forward to. And, believe it or not, it’s a whole lot of horror movies. Shocker, I know. In addition, […]

Teaser Trailer & Poster For New Low-Budget Slasher Pitchfork

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Ben
Pitchfork

By Ben Bussey It takes a great deal of balls for a press release to declare a low-budget directorial debut to be the launchpad of “a new franchise,” boasting “a new monster for the ages, joining the pantheon that has terrified audiences for decades.” Naturally, I’m sceptical of any such claim – but I won’t […]

4K Restoration of Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes Coming From Arrow Video

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Ben
HILLS_HAVE_EYES_2D_DVD

By Ben Bussey One of the key films from one of the most acclaimed and sadly missed horror filmmakers of the past five decades, the late Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes is among the most influential, enduring and grueling films of its kind, and one which no genre aficionado’s collection is complete without. And […]

DVD Review: The Wicked Lady (1983)

Posted on July 20, 2016 by Ben
The Wicked Lady - Second Sight DVD

By Tristan Bishop Dear old Michael Winner. Loathed by serious film critics and restaurant owners worldwide, and engendering responses in the public ranging from revulsion to fascination, Winner was undoubtedly an original – an opinionated playboy whose films often seemed more like excuses for him to hang out with his Hollywood heroes than personal works […]

Blu-ray Review: Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988)

Posted on July 14, 2016 by Keri
killertoms

By Keri O’Shea Well, here’s a blast from the past: if I remember correctly, and that’s a big ‘if’, Return of the Killer Tomatoes was one of the ragtag assemblage of films which seemed to play regularly on my dad’s illegal cable film channel back in the mid-to-late eighties. Between this film, Adventures in Babysitting, […]

Blu-ray Review: Southbound (2015)

0089_Southbound_DVD_sleeve.indd

By Ben Bussey The new wave of anthology horror has tended to be a little haphazard; take the none-more-random ABCs of Death movies, or the Dread Central-produced Zombieworld and Monster Land, which literally strung together entirely unrelated short films. It’s nice, then, to see portmanteau movies which harken back to the great days of the […]

DVD Review: Captive (2015)

captivedvd

By Keri O’Shea Saw has a lot to answer for, doesn’t it? Since it appeared a little over a decade ago, it’s had a long-lasting and far-reaching impact on horror – for good, and for ill. Saw showed us that a horror story could be effective and gripping whilst being incredibly economical with characters and […]

K-SHOP_QUAD

By Ben Bussey We’ve got less than a fortnight before Dan Pringle’s socially-conscious black comedy horror K-Shop hits UK cinemas on 22nd July, and make sure we don’t forget that we’ve got a new poster and ‘spicy’ trailer to share. Unfortunately I’ve yet to see K-Shop myself, but Tristan caught it not long ago and […]

By Ben Bussey As anyone who hasn’t been under a rock of late can no doubt tell you, we haven’t had a tremendous amount of good news over here in the UK recently. This being the case, it’s nice to have something nice from Britain to share with BAH readers. Well, if ‘nice’ is the […]

Blu-ray Review: Crimes of Passion (1984)

Crimes of Passion - Arrow Video Blu-ray

By Ben Bussey The late, great British auteur Ken Russell was never one for doing things by halves. As such, when he crossed the pond to give Hollywood a whirl in the early 1980s, no way was he about to leave his abrasive, in your face attitude behind. Russell’s time in the US was brief […]

Film Review: Model Hunger (2016)

By Keri O’Shea Most horror fans who have delved beyond the physical jerk-invoking shitfests being screened every Halloween will probably have an idea who Debbie Rochon is; add in a soft spot for low budget indie cinema, and chances are you’ll have seen more than a few offerings from her very extensive CV, especially if […]

Can You Dig A Russo Brothers TV Series Of The Warriors?

Posted on July 5, 2016 by Ben
The Warriors

By Ben Bussey I’m not sure what it is with all these movies being adapted into TV shows of late. As if the incessant tide of remakes (a little slower of late, but by no means abated) wasn’t enough, now the small screen networks seem to be tripping up over themselves to bring popular movie […]

Review: Monsterland (2016)

Monsterland-dvd

By Marc Patterson Around these parts we’re big fans of short horror films. Creating a perfect anthology of shorts is a significant challenge to any producer. There’s a real art to the curation of shorts into a masterful anthology. One needs to consider the broad theme, the mood, and what overarching story (if any) there […]

The Swinging Cheerleaders Arrow Video

By Nia Edwards-Behi I can’t say I’m overly familiar with the cheerleader subgenre (can we even call it that?) of exploitation filmmaking, but to say that The Swinging Cheerleaders lives up to my expectations of what a cheerleader film would be like is almost right. Luckily, it’s got those little Jack Hill flourishes that make […]

Frightfest 2016

By Ben Bussey It’s that time of year again, when here in the UK (I think we can still call it that for now) the horror festival season starts kicking into gear with London’s FrightFest, landing in Leicester Square over the August Bank Holiday weekend. 2016 marks the 17th consecutive year for the event, and […]
