The Bottom Shelf: Theatre Of Blood, Sparks, Wrecked and more

7 May 2014 2:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's a new monthly horror column, where Nick looks at the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases. This time? Theatre Of Blood, Sparks and more...


Welcome to Den Of Geek’s newest regular feature. Leaving a monthly stain on the glowing veneer of the site’s hallowed digital halls, this blog’s humble goal is to explore cinema’s shady alleyways in search of the obscure, weird and not-so-wonderful, bad taste, or just plain bad. All clear? Then, let’s get wading.

Everyone knows that critics are a wretched, bitter cross-section of human sewage, right? In case you’d forgotten, the first few films we encounter provide evidence of these dregs of society finally getting their just desserts.

Vincent Price might be the perfect critic-slayer. Surely there can be no finer way to go than accompanied by a Shakespearian quote in the high-camp dulcet tones of a horror legend. Theatre Of Blood, »

The ‘Tourist Trap’ Blu-Ray Controversy that You Need To Read.

5 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

[Update 5/5/2014 11:08am - Added Charlie Band's reply from]

If you are reading this site, there is a chance that you attend some conventions. Whether you travel to them or they roll into your hometown, more than likely this year you will see Charlie Band. Granted, the deal he is schlepping isn’t too bad. For $18 and your credit card, you can get 3 months of the Full Moon Streaming service in addition to 3 Blu-Rays of your choice. Since I’m not a huge fan of businesses having my credit card in a recurring payment that I always forget to cancel, you can actually give the Full Moon dudes (pun intended) a $20 bill and they’ll give you the same deal without having to worry about that recharge in 3 months. Hell, I did it at Cinema Wasteland last month. I figured that 3 months of the Full Moon streaming service and three Blu-Rays – one of which including Tourist Trap – was a great deal. »

‘Tourist Trap’ Blu-ray Review

10 April 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chuck Connors, Jocelyn Jones, Jon Van Ness, Robin Sherwood, Tanya Roberts, Dawn Jeffory | Written by David Schmoeller, J. Larry Carroll | Directed by David Schmoeller

The slasher film does not have that much of a history of being scary. Mostly it’s about some psychopathic killer who easily stalks down his/her victim while they run for their lives but never quite manage to escape. This is of course unless they are pure and virginal deeming them the one to survive for moralistic value. I find that it’s quite rare to find a truly creepy slasher, which is why it was so nice to finally discover Tourist Trap.

In the middle of nowhere on a road that has been made redundant by a new highway is a little museum made up of mannequins and run by a seemingly nice man known as Mr. Slausen. When tourists turn up he »

Seventies TV Terror Horror at 37,000 Feet Finally Descending to DVD

16 January 2014 1:34 PM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

The 1970’s were a great time for made-for-television horror movies. Some, like Horror at 37,000 Feet, were just great camp. An all-star cast consisting of William Shatner, Chuck Connors, Buddy Ebsen, Roy Thinnes, Paul Winfield, Russell Johnson, and more...

...try to survive an unholy druid entity that hijacks an international flight.

The 1973 haunted jumbo jet flick Horror at 37,000 Feet had been a staple of late night cable television replays (especially on TBS and TNT) up until the new millennium, when it finally faded off into the realm of obscurity. Paramount is prepared to reintroduce it to a new generation when they release the often unintentionally hilarious made-for-tv fright flick on DVD March 18th.


Fly the not-so-friendly skies in this frightening tale of survival at 37,000 feet! On a flight from London to Los Angeles, a wealthy architect (Roy Thinnes) and his wife (Jane Merrow) have rented out a jumbo jet's entire »

Ten Classic Scary Movies That Are (Mostly) Safe for Younger Viewers

8 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

For many horror fans with kids, deciding which scary films are appropriate for our children can be a challenge. It’s natural that we want to pass on our love of the macabre and bond over a shared interest in horror, but we also want to protect our children from nightmares, or from being scarred by exposure to onscreen violence. There are some more obvious kid-friendly choices (check out some of our recommendations here and here), but it can be tricky to determine what is and isn't age-appropriate. To remedy this, we've set put together a list of ten classic titles we deem suitable for most young viewers... at least those old enough to understand the difference between fantasy and reality.    Do keep in mind that these are our opinions, and only you know best what your little monsters are ready to see.      The Legend of Hell House   This 1973 haunted »
