Posted on 04/23/14 by UK Editor
vampyres_first_images_4

By Ben Bussey The last few days have seen most of online horror fandom up in arms about the decision to remake a certain movie set in cabin that’s barely a decade old. While I absolutely understand the outrage, I can’t pretend I personally feel too strongly about that one, having never cared for the [...]

3 Disc Edition of Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide Coming to the US

Posted on 04/22/14 by editor
nasties

By Keri O’Shea The fascination which we horror fans have for the ‘video nasties’ furore of the 1980s shows no sign of dissipating, and perhaps it’s right that it doesn’t. Speaking as a film fan living in the UK, we’ve never quite relaxed with regards the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification, the erstwhile British [...]

Comic News – Bill Willingham’s Restoration

Posted on 04/21/14 by UK Editor
Restoration-Pencils

By Svetlana Fedotov As any fan of comic books knows, Bill Willingham is one of the hottest creators on the market right now. Successfully writing the fan-favorite, multi-award winning, panty-dropping Fables for close to 12 years, Willingham has recently announced a new upcoming series due out late this year. Though his run on Fables isn’t [...]

The sequel no one wanted gets a sequel… I Spit On Your Grave 3 is on

I-SPIT-ON-YOUR-GRAVE-3-poster-watermarked

By Ben Bussey So… Bloody Disgusting report they’ve had “exclusive word out of Cannes that I Spit On Your Grave 3 is being pre-sold at the market.” Doesn’t look like Steven R Monroe will be back this time around, as reportedly no writer or director is attached. So, erm… just the news we were all [...]

Hooray! Absentia re-released with cover art that actually reflects the content!

Posted on 04/17/14 by UK Editor
Absentia

By Ben Bussey As I’ve mentioned a few times, Absentia – the breakthrough film of Oculus writer-director Mike Flanagan – is one of my favourites from the last couple of years. However, it was also laboured with one of the worst hack job covers of recent years on its initial UK DVD release, centred on [...]

Takashi Miike time – Over Your Dead Body teaser

Posted on 04/17/14 by UK Editor
Over Your Dead Body

By Ben Bussey Ah, the gentle art of the teaser trailer. Ideally it should give very little away about the movie that lies in wait, but present just enough to make you sit up, take notice, and wonder what in the holy hell is going on. Now – given that a full length movie from [...]

Dinner is served in The Green Inferno trailer

the-green-inferno

By Ben Bussey Funny, just last night I was watching Death Proof for the first time in I don’t know how long, and it suddenly dawned on me that Eli Roth is considerably more prolific as an actor than as a director. I also found myself pondering why his Death Proof character doesn’t suffer a [...]

Romero doc Birth of the Living Dead shuffles toward the UK

Posted on 04/16/14 by UK Editor
Birth of the Living Dead

By Ben Bussey Y’all remember that George A Romero invented the zombie movie, yes? I should bloody well hope so. But because it doesn’t hurt to have this point writ large, we have the recent documentary Birth of the Living Dead, which we’ve recieved word is coming to DVD and VOD in the UK via [...]

V/H/S guy David Bruckner rebooting Friday the 13th as found footage…?

Posted on 04/16/14 by UK Editor
GoingToPieces-FreddyNightmareElm4

By Ben Bussey I’m just going to give you a moment to soak up that headline, as something tells me this news isn’t going to leave a lot of middle ground. Either you’re in the “alright, V/H/S was groundbreaking, hardcore, real horror with real balls, this will rock” camp… or you’re in the “oh God, a Jason [...]

Cronenberg brings the Hollywood Gothic – Maps To The Stars trailer

Posted on 04/15/14 by UK Editor
maps to the stars

By Ben Bussey I gather a lot of horror fans have gone lukewarm on Cronenberg in recent years. It’s not hard to see why; the eternal king of body horror has long since left that territory behind in favour of less gooey, more ostensibly mainstream-friendly material. However, you never need to scratch the surface too [...]

BrinkVision unleash Argentinean giallo Sonno Profondo

Posted on 04/15/14 by UK Editor
Sonno Profondo

By Ben Bussey “Giallo is back,” snarls the Sonno Profondo trailer. Me, I’m not so sure it’s really been away, although it seems a fair bit more divisive of late, with contemporary takes on the genre ranging from the arty and obtuse (Amer and The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears) to the mind-bogglingly silly [...]

Bikini Girls vs. Dinosaurs, anyone?

Bikini Girls vs Dinosaurs

By Ben Bussey Sometimes, it really doesn’t feel like I need to write a damn thing. There’s a new no-budget movie called Bikini Girls vs. Dinosaurs. Synopsis: On the eve of their inauguration, three space fighter-pilot princesses are  dispatched into a black hole by their wicked stepmother so she can steal their  crown with impunity. [...]

Children face the zombie apocalypse in Too Young To Die

Posted on 04/14/14 by UK Editor
Too Young To Die

By Ben Bussey There are few things more likely to push buttons in horror movies than kids in peril. We don’t seem to see too many filmmakers braving that territory these days, perhaps due to the old maxim about children and animals – but in-development British horror Too Young To Die promises to dive headfirst [...]

Is Ryan Reynolds giving or recieving head in The Voices…?

Posted on 04/11/14 by UK Editor
The Voices - Gemma Arterton, Ryan Reynolds

By Ben Bussey So, yeah… there’s that. Empire just released two new images from The Voices, which it seems will centre on Ryan Reynolds going maniac. Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick co-star, and for the looks of things he kills at least one of them. Directed by Marjane Satrapi, co-director of Persepolis, The Voices premiered [...]

Here’s an intense 45 seconds… Let Us Prey teaser

Let Us Prey

By Ben Bussey Okay, I know I already lifted one story from Twitch this morning, but that was for a movie that looks bloody awful – whereas this one looks awfully bloody. And awfully bloody good, too. (Thank you, I’m here all week.) The feature debut of director Brian O’Malley (no, not the guy who [...]

ASIANSCHOOLGIRLS_final_hr-thumb-300xauto-47172

By Ben Bussey For the love of Yoshihiro Nishimura… Zomboobies failed to get funded on Kickstarter, yet this exists? Twitch just gave us our first look at Asian School Girls, surely the single most search engine unsafe movie title ever devised. Coming at us from The Asylum – those pioneers of cheap, dumb, obvious cash-ins [...]

Britain’s got Horns this Halloween

Posted on 04/08/14 by UK Editor
Horns - Daniel Radcliffe

By Ben Bussey I can’t be alone in wondering what the hell’s been going on with Horns. A new movie adapted from Joe Hill’s highly-regarded, big-selling novel by reputable, high-profile horror director Alexandre Aja, and starring Daniel flippin’ Radcliffe; with that kind of calibre, how and why has it sat on the shelf this long, [...]
