Open Windows 2014 Movie Review, Fantastic Fest
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 20 Days Ago. | No Comments
Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo has an interesting and wildly diverse book of business when it comes the genre films. From his bendy-twisty Timecrimes (2007) to the slight and charming Extraterrestrial (2011) to shorts in both the first ABC’s of Death (‘A is for Apocalypse’) and the newest V/H/S Viral (‘Parallel Monsters’) – Vigalondo seems to [...]

Ever Had A “Deathgasm”? Poster & Story
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 22 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Now here’s an interesting title that comes by way of a splatter horror/black comedy about two heavy metal-thrashing losers who have to find their inner strength to stop a malevolent force which they inadvertently unleashed. Enter Deathgasm which is currently in production by Retinae Productions. It sounds like a wholly original story written by Jason [...]

Daniel Radcliffe’s Horns Movie Review (Fantastic Fest 2014)
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 26 Days Ago. | No Comments
There is a confounding challenge screenwriters face when it comes to capturing the magic of the written word in the pages of a novel and channel that into a script and onto the screen. It becomes all the more tough when a novel or writer is highly thought of – such is the case with [...]

The Walking Dead New TV Spot: More Stunts, More Dead
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 31 Days Ago. | No Comments
Yet another trailer has surfaced on the AMC website and TV station and this time it looks like an all-out fight for survival. Not that we thought for a second that their wouldn’t be an all-out war with the characters being stuck at the carnivorous Terminus stronghold and all. But damn! This show has more [...]

Shrew’s Nest Movie Review (Fantastic Fest 2014)
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 31 Days Ago. | No Comments
There is an inescapable rumbling, murmuring dread that creeps along in the undercurrent of Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel’s Shrew’s Nest that is so steady and so well measured that once things hit the fever-pitch, you hardly know what to do with yourself. It is something that is hard to put your finger on as [...]

ABC’s of Death 2 Movie Review (Fantastic Fest 2014)
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 33 Days Ago. | No Comments
Much like with the V/H/S series, it would be a fool’s errand to try to compare (on the whole) the first ABC’s of Death film to the newest ideration. Primarily because you have a whole new batch of directors tackling the framework and the behind the scenes folks having had the experience of making the [...]

When Animals Dream Movie Review (2014 Fantastic Fest)
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 33 Days Ago. | No Comments
What is immediately and undeniably striking about Danish director Jonas Alexander Arnby’s film, When Animals Dream is the textural quality that everything in draped in right from the start. It is a wispy, muted color palette that seems to ebb and flow in a way that is deliberate and lovely but not contrived. It is [...]

Tusk Movie Review (2014 Fantastic Fest)
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 33 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
At its heart, Kevin Smith’s Tusk is a midnight movie. The strange mad-scientist angle, the screwy body horror, the slightly blue humor of its leads – this is all midnight movie territory. And while that is cool in a way, we’ve all seen enough of those to know that you either have to go full-out, [...]

CUB (Fantastic Fest 2014) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 35 Days Ago. | No Comments
When dealing with children in peril in horror films, you come to expect a certain set of rules, a certain pathway from start to end that give us the hero, the villain, the comic foil, the human drama, the adult influence and the calming resolution. This is what we see time and time again and [...]

TRAILER: Watch The “Cub” Scouts Earn a Badge of Death
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 55 Days Ago. | No Comments
Part of the Toronto International Film Fest’s “Midnight Madness” series comes an interesting Belgium film called Cub, brought to the screen by first-time feature director Jonas Govaerts. The synopsis of the film claims that this is Lord of the Flies meets The Devil’s Backbone to create a world of childhood terrors. But if you ask me, [...]

Trailer: Fear Meets A Strong Heroine In ‘The Guest’
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 55 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Now this seriously looks cool. Right when I thought The Guest was going to be like a Fear remake, a girl steps up to the plate and fights back. I like it. And there’s a similar character arc that we saw unfold with the kick-ass female Aussie in You’re Next. Oh wait, that’s because it [...]

Photos: What We Do In The Shadows Will Haunt You
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 57 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
So there are a lot of movies making their premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, but TIFF is just one of many stops for this one. What I love is that the the unusual and unfettered films are given the same publicity and love as the more popular horror franchises. But hey, that’s what festivals are [...]

Yes guys, it’s that time of year once again when one of the best, if not the best horror film festival returns. We are of course talking about the Film4 FrightFest, and it is returning for its 15th year, and I have to say that this year’s line-up is absolutely awesome, it is filled to [...]

The Den (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 169 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
When crafting a modern-day thriller or horror film, the reliance on technology is a slippery slope. Do you fast forward a few stages and invent things that don’t really exist yet, or, do you weave around the familiar of the day-to-day present day to frame your story? Either way is tricky business because more often [...]

Stanley Film Festival – Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead (2014) review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 170 Days Ago. | No Comments
It goes without saying that often times film sequels can fall flat under the sheer weight of expectation. Fans of an original film can build up their level of internal-hype to the point of near-unrealistic obsessing that no film could hope to meet. This happens in the music world too, where a band has had [...]

Gun Woman (2014) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 170 Days Ago. | No Comments
The best kind of genre filmmaking can be summed up in one word: Badass. The kind of films that render you unable to hold back cheers and clenched fists and smiles as all the black-hearted badness and revenge and violence unfolds. Films like Rolling Thunder or the more recent Blue Ruin or Big Bad Wolves [...]
