Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 357 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
After watching a film like Sennentuntschi: Curse Of The Alps (full title, although I care much more for just the first word as the title), one has to wonder why more genre/horror films don’t come out of Switzerland. Because beyond some narrative confusion at points, director Michael Steiner’s Sennentuntschi is a brilliant bit of folklore [...]

Chilean Horror Film ‘Yokai’ Scores Worldwide Distribution
Written by Chris Savage, Posted 357 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
It is often that we hear of a Chilean horror film around these parts, but if they all sound as awesome as Cristobal Echevensko’s horror film Yokai, I just wish that they would keep churning them out. But as is, Yokai has scored worldwide distribution via Shoreline Entertainment, according to the folks over at Variety, so [...]

Manuel Carballo’s Spanish zombie flick, The Returned, recently had it world premiere at this years Stiges festival, and I’m sure, just like myself, many of you could not make it and was unfortunate to miss out.

From our Spanish friends comes Jorge Olguin’s Whispers of the Forest (Gritos Del Bosque), and with the film set to go on sale at this years American Film Market, we have scored the first trailer for the film which you can view below.

O’ Apostolo Movie review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 408 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
O Apóstolo is a beautifully crafted, spooky ghost fable by Fernando Cortizo which, I hope, gets some chance at a wider audience after festivals and the like. The film does something I absolutely love in animated films which is to tell a story that doesn’t actually need to be animated to be effective. To have [...]

New Official Trailer for Tobe Hooper’s Djinn
Written by Chris Savage, Posted 419 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
Well this is a blast from the past! It has been years since we last heard anything on this one, and in all seriousness, I presumed this one was dead and buried and it would never see the light of day. But, there appears to be some life in Tobe Hooper’s long awaited flick Djinn, [...]

Fantastic Fest Rigor Mortis (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 423 Days Ago. | No Comments
If you were to describe Juno Mak’s Rigor Mortis in one sentence, you’d say…well, actually I don’t know if that’s possible. The film draws from a range of influences in the ‘Hong Kong’ or ‘Asian’ horror genres to create a tapestry of strangeness that willfully, stubbornly cannot be deposited into just one box. This both [...]

Fantastic Fest – Big Bad Wolves (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 428 Days Ago. | No Comments
Filmmakers Aaron Keshales and Navot Papushado first came onto the scene in 2010 with Kalevet (Rabies), an original and excellent film that was trailblazing for not only being one of the first of its kind from their country, but, also pushing back against the standards of breakdown-type horror setups. Kalevet was self-assured and sharp, brutal [...]

Fantastic Fest Witching & Bitching (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 431 Days Ago. | No Comments
Night two of midnight shows at Fantastic Fest brought Álex de la Iglesia’s Witching & Bitching to the big screen for its US debut. Those familiar with his most recent work, The Last Circus, know that his style is often crazed and highly energetic with a myriad of things happening all at once. The same [...]

Fantastic Fest Patrick (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 432 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Patrick’s director, Mark Hartley is responsible for the incredibly great 2008 documentary ‘Not Quite Hollywood’ about the Australian exploitation film scene of the 70s and 80s. If you’ve not seen it, please do soon. It is an excellent, affectionate and wildly fun documentary that introduced me to a host of wild, crazy Aussie films I [...]

Well Go USA Nabs Rigor Mortis
Written by Goon, Posted 453 Days Ago. | No Comments
A couple weeks ago a wicked trailer came out for Juno Mak’s Rigor Mortis. It was one of the most impressive things we have seen from the Asian market in my opinion. Before the film could even make it’s world premiere in Venice, Fortissimo Films picked up all the rights for North America with Well [...]

Pietà (2012) Film Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 467 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
It is odd to think about the few very small, very brief moments in a film like Kim Ki-duk’s Pietà that really end up defining it as a whole. Odd because the film is brutal, unrelenting and tough to watch for a vast majority of its runtime. There are a myriad of violent scenes that [...]

Snowpiercer is Being Dumbed Down for Western Audiences
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 477 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
I know that sounds like an inflammatory title, but if film critic and programer Tony Rayns is to be believed, it’s exactly what is happening to Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer.” The film was just recently released in Joon-ho’s native home of South Korea where it’s doing extremely well in that market.  It’s also receiving heaps of [...]
