Trailer for After Dark’s Bastard Definitely Looks Like It Was Conceived Out Of Wedlock

Posted on 08/26/15 by Ben
Bastard

By Ben Bussey You give your film a title like Bastard, and that brings certain expectations. You imagine Rik Mayall screaming the title, prefaced with the words “you utter -“. You expect something big, hard and cool, because after there’s nothing bigger, harder and/or cooler than swearing. That’s why BAH is such a shitting great […]

TURBO_KID_DVD_3D

By Ben Bussey One of the most talked-about, eagerly anticipated films of the upcoming Film4 FrightFest has been Turbo Kid, a cartoonish 80s-style post-apocalyptic adventure that reportedly blows the roof off with its gore quota, from directorial trio François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell. On the one hand, I do wonder if we’ve had […]

Houses October Built

By Ben Bussey Guess it’s been a little while since we’ve noticed distributors needlessly dumbing things down for the UK market, so we should be grateful for that. Doesn’t mean we won’t call them out on it when it does occur. Yes, The Houses that October Built – a Halloween-set found footage horror based around […]

Fear-LoathingCover

By Svetlana Fedotov Southeast Asia has never been one to shy away from trying new and interesting cuisine such as Korean Poo wine or the mayonnaise themed restaurant dead set in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. While perhaps a mild thrill compared to these two, the officially licensed DC Comics Superhero Café has started serving […]

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Trailer is a Lot Less PG-13 Than You Might Think

Posted on 08/21/15 by Ben
scouts-guide-to-the-zombie-apocalypse-01

By Ben Bussey I dunno about anyone else, but when I first heard there was going to be a Scouts Vs Zombies movie (and I believe that was the original title), I was anticipating something pretty mild and comparatively family-friendly, in a similar vein to my treasured lifelong favourite The Monster Squad. Well, I was […]

dreammachine (2)

By Ben Bussey We just got word of a new Japanese production called Dream Machine. Now in all frankness, the title and the video and images you see here represent pretty much the full extent of my knowledge of the film, beyond the very brief description we were given: “Like Un Chien Andalou,David lynch and […]

Old Spirits in the New World: The Witch gets a new poster and trailer

Posted on 08/19/15 by Keri
thewitch

By Keri O’Shea It’s always a boon to discover that a historical occult horror is making its way to our screens, especially one which performed so well at this year’s prestigious Sundance film festival, as (selfishly speaking) so many of my favourite films could be said to belong to this category. Folk horror – with […]

Hellions

By Ben Bussey Now this is more like it! Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve seen a new horror trailer that’s left with me with my heart pounding and the words “I HAVE to see this” echoing in my head. But that’s exactly the state that this new trailer for Bruce McDonald’s Hellions […]

By Ben Bussey Our good friends at Welsh horror festival Abertoir have long been known for their devotion to all things Vincent Price, so it’s little surprise they’d want to celebrate the late, great master once again for their tenth anniversary bash this year.

Pinup Dolls on Ice

By Ben Bussey Who remembers Bikini Girls On Ice? Okay, we’re not expecting a massive show of hands there. A microbudget indie slasher dating back to the early days of Brutal As Hell (made in 2009, it hit DVD in 2011 and inspired one of Marc’s more, uh, unique reviews), it wasn’t exactly the most warmly […]

victor-frankenstein-2-1024x681

By Ben Bussey So here we have our first in-motion look at Daniel Radcliffe portraying an unusually dapper and hump-less Igor alongside James McAvoy’s decidedly dastardly Dr Frankenstein in writer Max Landis and director Paul McGuigan’s new take on Mary Shelley’s time-honoured classic for 20th Century Fox. True to early word, it does look like […]

Starry Eyes directors sign on for studio horror with less-than inspiring title

Starry_Eyes

By Ben Bussey Okay, so maybe I’m a bit jaded and cynical when it comes to studio horror. Maybe a lot of us are. Maybe we can delete the word ‘maybe’ from the last two sentences. But when I hear that Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, a directorial duo whose first film Starry Eyes I […]
