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

Posted on 07/24/14 by Ben

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

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 07/22/14 by Ben

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 [...]

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

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 [...]

Posted on 07/20/14 by Ben

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 [...]

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

Posted on 07/17/14 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 07/17/14 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

Posted on 07/16/14 by Keri

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 [...]

Viking Vampire

By Ben Bussey Sometimes you hear a title/concept that seems so inspired, that when time passes you wonder whether it was for real or you just imagined it… no such worries with Viking Vampires. Almost nine months after we first saw the teaser poster, here’s our first teaser trailer. And damned if it doesn’t look good for a [...]

Almost Human touching down in the UK this August

Posted on 07/10/14 by Ben
Almost Human - Metrodome

By Ben Bussey Joe Begos’ low budget sci-fi horror Almost Human (not to be confused with Umberto Lenzi’s movie, or the recent JJ Abrams TV show) is one we’ve long been keen to see here at BAH, so it’s nice to see that Metrodome are set to release the film to home entertainment on 4th August. It’s [...]

Fancy chowing down on some American Burger?

Posted on 07/09/14 by Ben

By Ben Bussey What’s this? European filmmakers producing a psuedo-American comedy horror, with high school kids heading out into the wilderness to face gruesome death? Well, why the hell not. After all, given that America regularly raids European horror for anything and everything that can be quickly and cheaply remade, preferably burying the original from [...]

Lucky McKee’s The Woman comes to TheHorrorShow.TV

Posted on 07/09/14 by Ben
The Woman

By Ben Bussey Three years on, I don’t think The Woman is any less divisive a film than it was on release. Some, like myself, were very impressed by it; others, including Keri, had a rather different reaction. I must confess I haven’t revisited the film since FrightFest 2011, so I’m honestly not sure how I [...]

Soulmate rated 15 with 2 mins 33 seconds cut

Soulmate - Anna Walton

By Ben Bussey You may recall our jaws collectively hitting the floor a couple of weeks ago at the utterly stupefying news that the BBFC were demanding cuts to Axelle Carolyn’s directorial debut Soulmate, a quiet, understated supernatural drama which stood out on the horror festival circuit last year thanks to its almost complete lack of blood, violence, swearing and [...]
