A look back at Fright Night It’s a tall order to ask that a film that speaks to horror fans at an intelligent level also embraces its nostalgia factor and manages some genuinely creepy moments. Many try to do it but few succeed like Tom Holland’s Fright Night does. Released in the mid-80s when franchises…

Thirty years ago, a teenager named Charley Brewster peered outside his bedroom window and glimpsed the murderous acts of the new neck-chomper next door, Jerry Dandrige. Fright Rags is celebrating Charley, Jerry, and horror host extraordinaire, Peter Vincent, with a new Fright Night shirt.
Featuring Charley and Peter armed and ready to do battle with Jerry, who is pictured in full vamp mode, against a backdrop of Jerry's Victorian house and the swirling cloud reconstruction of Amy Peterson's impossibly wide grin, this shirt gorgeously captures the people and moments from Tom Holland's directorial debut that have stayed with fans for three decades.
Available as a T-shirt, hoodie, and baseball tee, Fright Rags' "Who's It Gonna Be Tonight" Fright Night shirt is now available to pre-order for $27.00 as a T-shirt, $47.00 as a hoodie, and $37.00 as a baseball tee. The shirts are expected to ship out in mid-September. To learn more, »

Last year, when we first began planning out what we wanted to do with Deadly Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine, the very first thing I put on our editorial calendar was a celebration of Tom Holland’s Fright Night for our August 2015 issue so that I could pay tribute to one of my very favorite films of all time in honor of its 30th anniversary.
Sometimes a movie comes along and changes your life and, for me, that film was Fright Night. Growing up as a horror fan, I often felt like the kid that was often misunderstood and so when I discovered Holland’s directorial debut on VHS in 1986, it had a profound impact on me because deep down, I was Charley Brewster. I was also a kid being raised by a single mom, that had a profound love of horror movies and a genuine affection for the hosts who brought »

Tom Holland is a master of horror (he even directed the Masters of Horror installment We All Scream for Ice Cream) in the truest sense. With treasures like Fright Night Childs Play and Thinner under his belt hes firmly established himself a genre powerhouse. Fright Night is the mans most beloved feature which makes it more fitting that he may direct a new vamp tale Fresh Blood. His first feature length film in nearly 20 years the project isnt a go yet but Holland is in the mix and thats a good thing. »

The problem with found footage movies is sometimes, instead of pulling the audience closer into the action, we end up thinking that the person behind the camera is just an idiot who should have dropped it and run for his life when things got dangerous. However their are rare occassions where you can just enjoy being taken along for the ride… As is the case with Digging Up the Marrow.
Playing himself Adam Green films a documentary about a man, William Dekker (Ray Wise) who contacts him promising proof of the existence of monsters in the world. Taking Will Barratt along with him as camera man he interviews Dekker about the claims, agreeing to investigate the claims. »

Originally conceived and made as a 9-episode web series for the now defunct FearNet, Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales has been released on to DVD as yet another horror anthology rather than TV show – running a huge 144 minutes – encompassing the entire series in one “movie”; and an inconsistent movie at that.
Some would say that you have to give web-based programming some leaway, after all budgets aren’t as high etc. However when said web series comes from FearNet, a site that had backing and had the resources, you have to wonder why they didn’t spend that little bit more money to make something a little more polished. Apparently the budget for Twisted Tales was »

Last month, we reported that Sony and Marvel's front runner to play the new Spider-Man is Asa Butterfield, who was one of the two top contenders rumored to be up for the coveted role, along with Tom Holland. Today we have a new report that the studios have officially decided on Asa Butterfield as the new Spider-Man, with the actor currently in negotiations with the studio. This hasn't been confirmed by Sony or Marvel yet, but it seems the search for the new Peter Parker may now be over. Or is it?
When Marvel and Sony first struck a deal to bring Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this year, part of the arrangement is that the new Spider-Man will first debut in an upcoming Marvel movie, most likely Captain America: Civil War, which is currently in production. While it has never been confirmed that this is the movie he will appear in, »

The horror landscape was changing by 1982. People were tiring of slashers; even the Halloween franchise decided to take a left (some would say wrong) turn away from Shatner masks and sharpened knives, and used the brand name to explore the holiday itself in the perpetually under-appreciated Season of The Witch. The genre seemed to be turning towards monsters, from large scale dread fests such as John Carpenter's The Thing to more intimate fare like Frank Henenlotter's Basket Case. The horror films of 1982 displayed a refreshing variety of ways to make audiences jump, squirm, gasp, smile, and when the occasion arose, vomit. The Beast Within giddily checks all the boxes.
Released in February by United Artists, the film took in a total of 7.7 million at the box office. Those were not great numbers, and the reviews were worse. Mainstream critics in general have never been kind to horror; almost »

Around the time I brought this Vestron Video release home from my local video store, I had an adolescent fascination with how the punk rock subculture that influenced my development had been portrayed in the media. In everything from video games to television and films, punk rockers were mostly portrayed as villains. There was a mythological aura surrounding the way these rebellious thugs were portrayed and it's clear in Class of 1984 that filmmaker Mark L. Lester (Commando) had a similar fascination and knew that pushing the legend made for better cinema.
Lester proudly declares now that he was prophetically making a film that bares important social significance and considers it to be the best film he's ever made, but let's be honest and admit that this movie is pure sleazy exploitation. Don't get me wrong, I love some good fun exploitation and as far as that's concerned there's no »
