Audio Horror Tales From Beyond The Pale Coming To Vinyl

Posted on 10/30/14 by Ben
The Hole Digger

By Ben Bussey Here’s something we don’t always hear that much about (pun intended): horror in audio drama form. The Hole Digger and Trawler are two stories from the series Tales From Beyond the Pale, and they’re about to be released in a vinyl release. Old school media for an old school format; and why […]

vampyres_first_images_1

By Ben Bussey It’s been six months since we found out a Vampyres remake was on its way, and I’m still not sure if I’ve quite accepted the idea. While it may not be one of the most celebrated movies of its kind, in its own way José Larraz’s potent blend of Gothic horror and […]

Adam Green’s Digging Up The Marrow finds distribution – and sounds smug…

Adam Green

By Ben Bussey I hadn’t heard much thus far about Adam Green’s new movie Digging Up The Marrow. While it screened at FrightFest this past August, our agent in the field Steph opted to miss it – which didn’t surprise me, as I know she isn’t a Green fan. Indeed, I’m no particular Green fan […]

Critters gnashing their way onto the small screen

Posted on 10/22/14 by Ben
Critters

By Ben Bussey *80s NOSTALGIA KLAXON*… what can I say, Critters is just one of those movies. Along with The Monster Squad and The Gate, it was among the early PG-13s that peddled horror to a younger audience with way more bite (figuratively and literally) than would likely be allowed today. It was also one […]

Looks That Kill Calendar 2015

By Ben Bussey With Halloween barely a week away, we face the most terrifying time of the year… Christmas shopping season.

cabin-fever-2003

By Ben Bussey More pancakes, anyone…? There have been murmurs of a Cabin Fever remake for some time, inspiring the inevitable cries of “no one in Hollywood has any new ideas anymore.” However, I doubt even those who believe that most fervently saw this one coming… Eli Roth’s debut film is set to be remade […]

UK TV News – bonkers quasi-sequel The Wicker Tree coming to Horror Channel

Posted on 10/20/14 by Ben
The Wicker Tree

By Ben Bussey Two of the most bewildering horror movies of the past decade have had a Wicker Man connection. The first, of course, was that 2006 remake with its overwhelming fear of women and bees; the second was 2011’s The Wicker Tree, Robin Hardy’s long-delayed ‘spiritual sequel’ to his 1973 classic, which it’s fair […]

By Ben Bussey Ever since us Brits/limeys/pommie bastards pretty much took over at Brutal As Hell (look, we’ve lost our empire, excuse us being a bit grabby), I realise the site’s focus has narrowed somewhat to UK-specific goings-on. Well, allow me to redress that balance by letting you know about an awesome-looking event which none […]

When there’s no more room in Hell, Romero will crowdfund a Night of the Living Dead prequel

Posted on 10/17/14 by Ben
Cameron Romero Origins

By Ben Bussey George A Romero is crowdsourcing a prequel to Night of the Living Dead. There isn’t one thing about that sentence which doesn’t make the blood curdle, is there? Okay, so it’s not a film that Romero himself is actually directing; that duty instead falls to his son, G Cameron Romero (I’m guessing […]

The Fetish Factory Gets An Old School Poster

Posted on 10/16/14 by Ben
The Fetish Factory

By Ben Bussey Staci Layne Wilson’s upcoming debut feature The Fetish Factory promises to be a retro-flavoured B-movie, what with its cast of pin-up girl burlesque performers doing battle with zombies and all. It’s entirely fitting, then, that it should get a rather retro-flavoured poster – so here that poster is, the handiwork of artist […]

By Keri O’Shea Once upon a time, in 1944 to be more precise, a newborn boy was nearly bombed out of existence in the first few minutes of his life – when a hospital in Cologne was hit, during WWII. Of course a child so young couldn’t remember such a thing, no matter how traumatic […]
