Think of a teeming metropolis like New York City. Now double that in size. If every single person who lived there, every hot-dog vendor, third-grader and euphoric Mets fan, was in fact a flesh-eating zombie, that would roughly equal the 17.3 million people that tuned into last October's fifth-season premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead, the most-watched episode of anything in cable history. Those are blockbuster numbers and they occurred week after week. The demand for the show has become so huge that a prequel spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, debuts this Sunday. »

As a kid growing up in the 80s there were only a handful of women who, at least for this young horror fan, could sell a film on their name alone. For T&A terror it was the likes of Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer and Linnea Quigley; but for the real stuff, the truly horrorfying movies it was Barbara Crampton. To this day I will watch any film to which her name is attached, he presence in a movie, especially a horror movie, always elevates the production. Which is why We Are Still Here was pretty much a given at this years Frightfest!
But it’s not just the presence of Crampton that attracted me to this particular slice of New England horror.

“If you’re revolted by the sight of blood, close your eyes for the next 90 seconds!”
Trailer Apocalypse screens midnights this Friday and Saturday Night (June 5th and 6th) at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave, St. Louis) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse
To celebrate the fifth year of the monthly Late Night Grindhouse, the crazies over at Destroy the Brain are presenting ‘Trailer Apocalypse – A Grindhouse Trailer Reel’ featuring a 2 solid hour buffet of trailers from the so-called “grindhouse” era: the notorious, the long forgotten, and everything in between. If you went to see a double or triple feature playing on 42nd Street in New York City in the seventies these are just the kind of coming attractions that would run before the films. Unfortunately, almost no one currently living in St. Louis ventured into NYC grindhouses 40-something years ago (at least no one »

he United Kingdom has an infamous history when it comes to censorship. The debacle of the eighties with many films, either good or bad becoming the victims of censorship is something that we’d rather forget. Films were looked down on even for having certain words in the title, with one example being Chainsaw which was probably because of the dubious connection to Texas Chainsaw Massacre. One of these movies that dared to test the censors with such a name was Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers which 88 Films have now released on Blu-ray as part of their Slasher Classics Collection.
While there are plenty of chainsaws on show in the movie it shouldn’t be taken seriously and in reality doesn »

Are zombies really that memorable? When you think about it, today’s undead munchers are not exactly an interesting crowd since all they do between meals is wander around in a trance. The pre Romero vegetarians are even worse, as they spend most of their time under the thumb of a zombie master, although on the odd occasion they do rebel against their tyrannical leader.
Zombie movies are a dime a dozen these days, and apart from a few moderately successful variations, they haven’t progressed beyond the flesh-eating antics of Night of the Living Dead (1968). But on the odd occasion a couple of zombies stand out from the faceless crowd of walking corpses, and what some these ghouls lack in personality, they make up for in other ways.
So here’s a list of ten memorable zombies that stood out for me, as an avid horror movie fan.
Over 45 years ago, a young commercials director and his friends gathered in the Evans City, Pennsylvania area to shoot a low-budget horror film with a stunning social commentary. That movie, Night of the Living Dead, went on to achieve legendary status, as did its bold director, George A. Romero.
Taking his vast knowledge of the genre and fascinating stories of his filmmaking experiences on the road, Romero will be a guest late this month at Indianapolis’ Culture Shock, and it’s now been revealed that about one month after that appearance, Romero will join the likes of Linda Blair, Michael Biehn, Linnea Quigley, and many more at the Monsterpalooza in Burbank, California.
Taking place March 27th–29th at the Marriott Burbank Convention Center, Monsterpalooza features a host of horror genre celebrities, artists, and more, with Romero slated to appear all three days. Tickets are $30 per day or $70 for a three-day pass. »

As Deliver Us From Evil lands on disc in the UK, we look back at key lessons the movies teach us about possession...
The idea of demonic possession goes back thousands of years, to before we had film. Most religions carry their own interpretation of what it means for a person to be 'possessed' by a demon or a spirit and it's a complicated, arcane subject shrouded in mystery and ritual.
The Sumerians, thousands of years before Christ, believed all diseases were caused by 'sickness demons' and had their sorcerers attempt early exorcisms as cures. The Quran talks extensively of Jinn (demons) that can drive people to insanity and may only be expelled via worship. In the Bible, Satan and his demons are very much at large using human beings as vessels for devilish deeds. Jesus casts a whole bunch of them out before he's accused of being demon-possessed himself »
