Welcome back to another edition of Fright At Home, fiends! It’s been a while since I’ve written up a groovy list of this weeks latest & greatest video releases, so let’s get right down to brass taxes!
This week sees the release of two long requested MGM titles that are getting the lavish Scream Factory treatment, The Howling and Lifeforce! Both are packed to the gills with bonus features (Lifeforce even includes the Hooper’s Directors Cut!); basically they are must-own discs that look pristine.
A segment from the lost Full Moon anthology Pulsepounders finally makes it’s way to DVD after 25 years of obscurity, Charles Band’s The Evil Clergyman! The Soska Twins’ American Mary makes it’s stateside debut, and the Eli Roth produced sequel no one asked for The Last Exorcism Part II hits as well.
Stoker, one of my favorites of 2013 is out also, »

Continuing where the first film left off, teenage Nell Sweetzer is found dirty and terrified in the woods having just escaped a demon ritual in which a cult helped her give birth to a demon baby. Confused and scared, Nell is examined by doctors but she doesn’t remember much about the previous few months except that as a result of everything, her family is now dead. She is moved into Davreaux – a girls’ halfway house in New Orleans, where she will try to put her life back together with the help of the therapist, Frank Merle. She even begins to date a boy »
The euphoria of an all-night concert — the crazy hook-ups, the booze and, of course, the killer music — is the kind of larger-than-life, emotionally charged scene that movies are made for.
“For the longest time I had been interested in a narrative that had progressed in almost real time, where you didn’t take a huge chunk of time and try and condense it,” Mirecki explained on the phone with EW. “The »

Produced by Eli Roth (the man responsible for the Hostel films), The Last Exorcism was a horror movie using, like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, that overworked form, the faux-documentary. It centred on a fundamentalist pastor in the deep south who has lost his faith in the exorcisms he's been conducting and sets out to expose fraudsters. But on an expedition to a remote Louisiana farm to expose what he believes to be another hoax, he confronts the real deal. It's an edgy movie that eventually gets really scary.
This cannot, however, be said of the sequel, The Last Exorcism Part II, in which a girl apparently possessed by demons turns up in New Orleans and is sent to be sorted out at a home for troubled young women. Unfortunately, the home's resident therapist thinks all she needs is a little TLC, when in fact a horde of »

Have you ever imagined a place where Vulcans and Vampires get along? Where Wizards and Wookies can be themselves? …Welcome to Comic-Con San Diego.
Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope arrived on my doormat and seeing as we are a home of Nerds, both wifey Jeanie and eldest daughter Evil Kitty (not her real name) wanted to watch it too. As I knew Mr. Hatch was an aging Nerd like myself I invited him down and so today I give you an across an across the board review. Like a total gentleman I'll start with my musings...

*there are some spoilers here. Director: Nicolás López. Writers: Guillermo Amoedo, Nicolás López and Eli Roth. Cast: Lorenza Izzo, Nicolás Martínez, Eli Roth, Natasha Yarovenko, Ariel Levy and Andrea Osvárt. Aftershock is the latest horror title from Hostel creator Eli Roth. Roth even headlines this piece and Roth is one of three writers for the film. The story borrows from the many disaster films of the '70s. In films like The Poseidon Adventure (1972) and The Towering Inferno (1974): characters are introduced, a chaotic event takes place and the conclusion ends peacefully. This formula is mostly followed in Aftershock. Yet, the conclusion here is a lot more tragic. As well, the principal characters are lost by the beginning of Act 3, which is a strange choice. Aftershock still manages to remain entertaining despite a slow start. The story begins with three friends: Pollo (Nicolás Martínez), Gringo (Eli Roth) and Ariel (Ariel Levy »

While most found-footage entries have us rolling our eyes, one effort impressed largely thanks to a lead character doing exactly that. Daniel Stamm’s The Last Exorcism followed a documentary crews attempt, along with a now faithless reverend, to disprove the methods secretly used in the church for exorcisms. Rising star Ashely Bell gave an impressive, tormented performance as Nell Sweetzer, the young teen daughter of a Louisiana farmer claiming she’s lost to demonic forces.
Bell reprises her role in the sequel, The Last Exorcism Part II, which has dropped the found-footage aspect in favour of a standard narrative. Thn were lucky enough to put some questions to the actress about her back-breaking return in the Eli Roth-produced chiller, due in Us cinemas tomorrow.
Could you tell us at which point Nell’s life is at in the new film?
Part two begins where part one ended. We »

Any diehard reader of ShockTillYouDrop.com should be intimately familiar with the Giallo style of horror filmmaking that came out of Italy in the late '60s and early '70s, gory and gruesome affairs that made cult figures out of the likes of Dario Argento and Mario Bava. Those films have been hugely influential on American horror from the original Friday the 13th to the works of Eli Roth and Rob Zombie.
British filmmaker Peter Strickland's Berberian Sound Studio is not a Giallo film but it pays loving tribute to them by going behind the scenes in an Italian recording studio where they're doing voiceover and sound FX work for one of those grisly Italian horror films. Toby Jones (Frank Darabont's The Mist) stars as Gilderoy, a British sound engineer who travels to Italy to work in a studio doing sound FX for what he thinks is »

Thn was recently lucky enough to sit down and chat with one of the modern masters of horror, Eli Roth (we think he did that cabin film about a cabin at one point or another). With The Last Exorcism Part II, Roth’s latest movie, due out in cinemas later this month, now seemed the perfect time to squeeze him for information. That’s right, we didn’t just talk about cuddly bunnies and rainbows for the whole interview.
So where does this sequel find Nell? Where do things go after the events of the first film?
We were having trouble, where do we go with the story? And we loved the idea of following Nell, and what would happen if she lives in a world where the first film exists but it exists as a viral video. And she has absolutely no memory of what happened to her. She »

This sequel to the well-received mockumentary-style shocker from 2010 is done without the mockumentary angle or really any point
It's a bit disconcerting seeing the words "Part II" here. As "Last" Exorcisms go, this is turning into a bit of a Sinatra Farewell Tour. The last Last Exorcism came out in 2010, produced by Eli Roth, a mockumentary shocker admired for its smart approach and quite a few effective chills. This sequel is lucklustre, however, and when the possessed young woman involved goes into the now traditional demonic backward-crab position, you can feel an arthritic twinge. The story is told conventionally, without the documentary gimmick, and the first film's existence is acknowledged, cursorily, by having it show up at one stage on YouTube. Ashley Bell does a reasonable job as Nell, the comprehensively freaked-out survivor of the first ritual of satanic slaughter, who senses the Evil One is still after her. It's competently made, »

Following the hellish events surrounding her exorcism, traumatised teen Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) tries to rebuild her life at a home for troubled young women in New Orleans. But as she adjusts to urban life, it seems that her demonic companion still has designs on her soul. With the documentary makers who brought Nell's plight to our attention no longer around, producer and lord of the movie underworld Eli Roth reverts to more traditional devices to follow her diabolical fate. »
We all know, of course, what happened on April 15, 2013, in Boston, Massachusetts; as thousands of people ran a famous marathon through one of America's oldest and most historic cities, multiple explosions went off near the finish line. Many were killed or injured, and fundraisers have sprung up across the globe to help the community and the victims and their families. And one of the philanthropists lending a hand is one of horror's most beloved figures.
Adam Green, the director of Spiral and Frozen and the mastermind behind the popular slasher films in the Hatchet series, was born and raised in the Boston area in a small picturesque town called Holliston. Green, currently working on his own FearNet original sitcom, Holliston, and the upcoming Chris Columbus (of Goonies fame) film Killer Pizza, opted to plan a three-night fundraising extravaganza in his hometown area.
Green began posting details on his social media as details became available. »

This season’s first episode starts off with our blonde bisexual Tiphany riding a mechanical bull.

The Last Exorcism Part 2 is a somewhat incongruous title and the film itself bears little resemblance to the first instalment from 2010, produced like this effort by Eli Roth, a sleeper hit which made over 10 times its initial production budget in its opening weekend in the Us alone. On the back of mixed to positive reviews and name recognition that all film studios like, The Last Exorcism gets a second parts which somewhat takes away from the title of the first film, but does tries to shake things up a bit, certainly more than most horror franchises do.
Unlike the first film which relied heavily on found footage, this time its only on show here in a recap of events »
