By Ben Bussey We still don’t have any release dates for indie horror anthology sequel Volumes of Blood: Horror Stories, but it’s already had a good few grassroots screenings in the US, and hopefully it won’t be too long until it becomes accessible on home entertainment. To whet your appetite in the meantime, here’s a […]

kodoku-meatball-machine

By Nia Edwards-Behi Back in 2005 it’s fair to say that Yudai Yamaguchi rather kicked off the whole modern J-splatter phenomenon with the release of Meatball Machine. The spiritual heir to Shinya Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo, Meatball Machine combined social commentary with extreme gore and violence. Meatball Machine’s special effects were the work of FX maestro Yoshihiro […]

By Ben Bussey I’m going to admit right away that I’m not familiar with either the 2012 movie Bad Kids Go To Hell, or the Bad Kids comic book series on which both that film and this sequel are based. However, I do enjoy some trashy high school movies, especially with a healthy order of […]

By Ben Bussey As much as I’m loathe to fall prey to this fetishistic trend of pre-trailer teaser trailers, we can hardly fail to take note of out first glimpse at the movie that’s finally set to revive the Universal Monsters brand. Yes, that may have been the intent of both 2010’s The Wolfman and […]

By Ben Bussey The last couple of years have seen a most welcome resurgence of interest in Richard Stanley, the writer-director who was poised to be one of the leading lights of 1990s horror before the spectacular crash-and-burn that was The Island of Doctor Moreau, all of which is chronicled in the excellent 2014 documentary […]

By Ben Bussey It’s only 26 days until Christmas, and we all know what that means… yes, it’s only 338 days until Halloween! So, whilst we may be pondering whether or not it’s too early to get in a Yuletide mood, surely we can all agree it’s never too early to raise some Samhain spirit. […]

By Ben Bussey Hey, you know how every time for the last nine years when Thanksgiving rolls around (not that I mark that occasion, being British and all that) loads of people ask why Eli Roth hasn’t done a feature-length version of his fake trailer from Grindhouse yet? Well, from things someone else may have […]

By Ben Bussey As the great Tom Atkins once said, “I’ve got good news and bad news, girls…” But where he chose to start with the good, I’m going straight to the bad. Brutal As Hell is coming to an end. Launched by our friend Marc Patterson back on New Year’s Day 2009, the site […]

By Ben Bussey Hopefully by now you’re well aware of I Am Not a Serial Killer. Director Billy O’Brien’s eerie, blackly comedic adaptation of Dan Wells’ novel with Max Records, Christopher Lloyd and Laura Fraser has been one of the most talked-about genre films on the festival circuit in 2016, and justifiably so. I hugely […]

By Ben Bussey A fly-on-the-wall look at a York-based descendant of the legendary monster hunter, continuing his family legacy whilst balancing out the supernatural chicanery with the mundane details of everyday life? Why, if that doesn’t sound like something you’d want to watch I’m not sure you and I can be friends. Produced by York’s […]

By Keri O’Shea Perhaps I’m just not as attuned to news of remakes as I once was, but it feels to me like the whole remake thing has slowed somewhat. Sure, the odd high profile title gets bandied about, but (as in the case of the upcoming Suspiria remake) these projects often seem to float […]

By Ben Bussey Harvest Lake and Plank Face were two of the most unique and striking indie horrors we’ve seen in 2016. I wasn’t sure what to anticipate next from the team behind those films – but it certainly wasn’t a “sexy space comedy!” However, this is what we can expect next from Bandit Motion […]

By Ben Bussey Another of the most talked about films from this year’s festivals, I Am Not A Serial Killer will soon be unleashed on the UK with a VOD and theatrical release coming next month (and it’s well suited to December, given it’s covered in snow and partly set at Christmas).
