When Cabin Fever came out in 2002, it was a sensation among fans of freaky frights. The film packed more than a little punch with its own version of the karate kid, a leg shaving scene that set disposable razor sales back for a year, and a German Shepherd who made Cujo look like a lapdog.
Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever left a legacy hard to live up to, but of course a dumbed-down sequel was released. It was directed by Roth’s Bff Ti West, but one would never guess that after the studio heads got hold of it in the editing room and butchered it.
Regardless, the Cabin Fever name still carries weight so there is a prequel that's out now on demand and will be in theaters on August 1, 2014.
This time the story centers about the initial outbreak of the creeping virus. On a remote island, Patient Zero »

For peek-between-the-fingers moments, it's hard to top a sex scene lubricated by the revolting promise of a flesh — eating virus.
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero-the third installment and prequel of the series that began with Eli Roth's 2002 woodland gorefest — delivers its share of anticipated gross-outs, which director Kaare Andrews presents with a sly, often lipless, grin.
The fun begins as four old friends charter a boat to drop them off for a bachelor-party trip to a remote Caribbean island, supposedly deserted. Unfortunately, the north side of the island is home to a secret disease-research facility, currently under quarantine, thanks to Porter (Sean Astin), an unaffected carrier of a deadly virus, who's dead set on escaping. (Symptoms include jellie »
In an odd turn of events, this list has a number of films that don’t have English-language titles. They just go by whatever the original title was. Good for us. What we do see in this portion of the list is a few movies that weren’t really created specifically to be horror films, but their themes and visuals made it so. In addition, we have some heavyweights of non-horror cinema creating horror films that push the genre all the more upward. “Thinking man horror,” if you will.
20. Le locataire (1976)
English Language Title: The Tenant
Directed by: Roman Polanski
Roman Polanski has made one of the greatest horror “trilogies” of all time with 1965′s British production Repulsion, 1968′s American production Rosemary’s Baby, and 1976′s French production The Tenant, completing his “Apartment Trilogy.” Unlike the other two, Polanski actually stars in The Tenant as Trelkovsky, a reserved man renting an apartment in Paris. »

How much does Sean Astin know about disgusting infectious diseases? A lot more now than he did a few years ago, probably.
The Lord of the Rings actor can currently be seen in FX’s vampire-virus drama The Strain and is also one of the stars of Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the third movie in the flesh-eating virus horror franchise which Eli Roth kicked off back in 2002 with his directorial debut Cabin Fever. Patient Zero itself is directed by Kaare Andrews and concerns a Caribbean vacation which goes (as is the tendency in films whose title features the words “Cabin” and “Fever”) badly awry. »

Today is a big day for the team here at Daily Dead and, rather than send out our press release to everyone right away, I thought it was important to share the news with our readers first. It’s a simple fact that this site wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for readers that support us every day, and the dedicated and talented writers that have joined Daily Dead over the years.
I started Daily Dead with two basic goals: to have an outlet to share my love of horror and sci-fi, and to connect with readers and writers who had the same kind of passion for these genres. Since opening in late 2010, I’ve been fortunate to meet many readers online and in person, and I’m honored that you’ve made us your source for horror and sci-fi news. As many who have been reading Daily Dead for years know, »

Bill Skarsgard and Landon Liboiron star on Netflix’s hit horror series Hemlock Grove as Godfrey estate heir Roman and werewolf Peter Rumancek – two teenage boys with a decidedly ambiguous relationship.
The two characters are first brought together in Hemlock Grove’s first season when Peter is falsely accused of murdering two teenage girls and Roman tries to find the true culprit. Over the course of the season, the nature of their relationship led many viewers to think that more than just a friendship was brewing between the two.
“Yeah, I mean it’s a fun thing that a lot of people saw. I guess there is sort of a romance between them,” Skarsgard told uInterview exclusively, adding that “the sexual tension between the two characters” wasn’t his or Liboiron’s intention.
Liboiron conceded that some of the fan art »

Hemlock Grove’s executive producer Eli Roth and leading actress Famke Janssen both believe that the Netlix horror series – which released its second season earlier this month – provides a unique take on the genre.
What might set Hemlock Grove apart from horror films and other contemporary horror series more than anything else is its home on Netflix. Roth, who directed Cabin Fever and Hostel for the big screen, found the streaming network to be incredibly flexible and open-minded when it came to his ideas, even encouraging him to push the envelope even further.
“Netflix was great because I would present an idea that would be completely out of left field and they would ask if I could take it a step further and I would go, ‘Can I!’” Roth told uInterview exclusively, adding, “We had a great team and Chic Eglee is a terrific showrunner. »
The purging continues as Universal delivers a sequel to a film few actually liked in the first place. But hey, it's cheap to make and they may be able to dupe just enough people into thinking The Purge: Anarchy will be any better than the first... it isn't. It's worse. The only way they might have made a better movie would have been to set the film the day after the last one, sorting through the pain, emotions and overall aftermath of all the killing, but that would require tact and thought rather than speed and simplicity, allowing them to churn out another one just over a year after the first hit the big screens. As a result, the annual Purge is once again upon us, sound the horn and prepare for tedium. In the year 2023 the "New Founding Fathers" of the United States of America once again invite the »

From executive producer Eli Roth, the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove is now available for the entirety of its second season run, featuring plenty more blood, guts, and betrayal. The supernatural thriller centers on the mysterious happenings of a small Pennsylvania town where vampires, werewolves, and genetically engineered Frankenstein monsters roam the streets side by side. Season two gets darker, sexier and scarier as Peter (Landon Liboiron) and Roman (Bill Skarsgard) face the responsibilities of adulthood and deal with the fallout from the first season's brutal climactic massacre. Earlier this year I joined a small group of journalists on set in Toronto where we had a chance to talk with Madeline Brewer (Orange is the New Black) about what to expect from her new character Miranda. She talked about how Miranda ends up in Hemlock Grove, working with the practical effects, Miranda's relationships with Peter and Roman, shooting in Toronto, »

It’s another unusual day in Hemlock Grove.
With a new showrunner Charles “Chic” Eglee (“Dark Angel,” “Dexter”), the show promises to be very interesting with more blood and gore. And nearly the entire cast returns including Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Dougray Scott, Tiio Horn, Joel de la Fuente and Demore Barnes. Madeline Brewer and Madeleine Martin are set to join the cast this season.
During the second season, more mysterious murders are being committed around town as Roman Godfrey and Peter Rumancek must re-team to uncover the mysteries of the murders and their families.
Latino-Review was present at the Netflix press day last week, in which we participated in the roundtable interviews with the cast and drew of “Hemlock Grove. »

For the man who directed Snoop Dogg's "La La La" and co-wrote RZA's directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, the relationship between hip-hop and film runs deep. "The only people who know more about movies than directors are rappers," Roth tells Rolling Stone. "All Snoop »
In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.
I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

Humankind’s collision with otherworldly life forms can make for unforgettable cinema.
This article will highlight the best of live-action human vs. alien films. The creatures may be from other planets or may be non-demonic entities from other dimensions.
Excluded from consideration were giant monster films as the diakaiju genre would make a great subject for separate articles.
Readers looking for “friendly alien” films such as The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), It Came from Outer Space (1953) and the comically overrated Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) are advised to keep watching the skies because they won’t find them here.
Film writing being the game of knowledge filtered through personal taste that it is, some readers’ subgenre favorites might not have made the list such as War of the Worlds (1953) and 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957).
Now let’s take a chronological look at the cinema’s best battles between Us and Them. »

[This is a review of episodes 1 – 6 of season 2 of Hemlock Grove. There will be Spoilers!]
As a fan of horror and a sucker for anything Eli Roth, I was very much looking forward to the start Hemlock Grove last year. But, if you caught our review of the beginning of the show’s first season, you know I wasn’t just disappointed – I was dumbfounded. Hemlock Grove season 1 wasn’t just a poor production. It was almost entirely unwatchable. In fact, I never even made it beyond episode 4.
For some reason, the sucker in me opted to give it another go. So to prepare to review season 2, I re-watched all four episodes ...

Netflix has released a new behind-the-scenes clip for its original horror series “Hemlock Grove,” which premiered its second season today.
This video focuses on the prosthetics and makeup that go into creating the show’s wolf transformation scenes. In the clip, Liboiron describes how the show’s effects team attempted to improve upon their work from the first season.
“They mixed CGI with actual prosthetics,” he comments. “They created a face for me, and they had an actual wolf prosthetic stretch and rip out of my face. It just looks so much more real.”
The CGI is considered a highlight of the series. In Brian Lowry’s Variety review, he said that, “watching the opening of the second go-round still tips the scales toward so »
