Trick or Treat: Horror Masks and Halloween at the Movies

Posted on 10/27/15 by Keri

By Keri O’Shea Over the years, the festival of Halloween and the horror movie industry have become almost symbiotic, extensions of one another, with one feeding the other. Take Scream, for instance: I remember the exact model of mask used in the film being around way before the franchise came into being; it was another […]

Trick or Treat: All Hallow’s Eve 2 (2015)

All Hallows' Eve 2

By Quin Exactly the way I discovered All Hallow’s Eve in 2013, the sequel All Hallow’s Eve 2 appeared on the iTunes horror page just like the unmarked video tapes find their way to unsuspecting viewers in the two films; I seriously hope this is going to become a regular thing. The list of sequels […]

Trick or Treat: All Hallow’s Eve (2013)

Posted on 10/25/15 by Ben

By Quin I saw Damien Leone’s All Hallow’s Eve when it was first released to VOD in 2013. It was a film I had heard absolutely nothing about before discovering it in the iTunes horror section, but I was intrigued by the cover art and the synopsis. The fact that it was an anthology film […]

Halloween II 2009

By Ben Bussey Continuing our October thread on Halloween-set horror, I decided it was time to take on a movie I’d made a point of missing on release, and hadn’t found the will to watch until now. Back in 2009, the idea of Rob Zombie doing a sequel to his 2007 Halloween remake seemed even […]

Tales of Halloween

By Nia Edwards-Behi The recent resurgence in anthology horror films seems to have slowed down this past year or so. However, with Tales of Halloween, the subgenre’s given a bit of a shot in the arm, taking on a different format to other anthologies which string together a series of shorts with only a very […]

Posted on 10/12/15 by Ben

By Nia Edwards-Behi I’ve briefly raved about Hellions before on this site, in my preview of FrightFest 2015. Well, now the film’s set to hit home-viewing, just in time for Halloween, and I’m really looking forward to many people picking it up and seeing it for themselves, because more than anything, it’s a film that […]

BAH Comics – The Clown Queen of Crime: the Life of Harley Quinn

Posted on 09/16/15 by Ben
harley quinn

By Svetlana Fedotov She is a symbol of unyielding impulse, a gun-toting bad-ass, and one terrible pun after the other. She’s the pro-feminist to your anti-feminist and the anti-feminist to your pro-feminist. She is a sex symbol, a wild child, an icon; women want to be like her and men name their kids after her […]

RIP Stephanie Scaife

Posted on 09/14/15 by Ben

By Ben Bussey This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. On behalf of all of us at Brutal As Hell, I am devastated to announce that Stephanie Scaife, one of our longest-serving writers, committed suicide last Wednesday. Steph began writing for BAH in 2010. The first thing she wrote for us, unless […]

Frightfest 2015

By Stephanie Scaife Click here to read part one of Steph’s FrightFest 2015 report. Abner Pastoll’s Road Games was a pleasant surprise, an interesting UK/French production that is not (as I’d thought) a remake of the 1981 Jamie Lee Curtis film of the same name. Instead Road Games is about Jack (Andrew Simpson), an English […]

They Have Changed Their Face – Details on Cigarette Burns Screening, plus Q&A with director Corrado Farina

Posted on 09/07/15 by Ben

By Tristan Bishop I’ve been a fan of Italian genre cinema for around 25 years – every since I caught a TV showing of Mario Bava’s Black Sunday as an impressionable youth – and as such I tend to believe I’ve seen most of the best that the Italian golden age (around 1960-1986) has to […]

Frightfest 2015

By Stephanie Scaife Since I started attending FrightFest all the way back in 2003, it’s always been a real mixed bag – for all the awful to middling films you sat through, you were always guaranteed at least a few gems. Over the years these have included such titles as Oldboy, Wolf Creek, Pan’s Labyrinth, […]
