Josh Soriano’s Guide To Surviving Your First Horror Convention!!

3 September 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Josh Soriano, man of mystery.

For those who complain that Halloween only comes once a year, here’s your chance to experience it more than once–in fact, as many times as you wish. ​Recently I attended my first horror convention. I’d previously only been to a Dark Shadows convention in 2004 and even though I had a great time there, it wasn’t exactly as monumental as I’d hoped for. The overall mood felt more like a Jr high dance where the boys stood on one side and the girls on the other. Since it was a beloved show that was on decades ago, it was divided between older folks who were scoffing at the younger and vice versa. I get it. As we grow older, we all go to something we love and complain about how the “younger kids aren’t as die-hard as we are”. But »

Robert Englund to be Freddy Krueger one last time

11 July 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One, two, Freddy’s coming for you…

It’s been 30 years since Robert Englund first put on the make-up for A Nightmare on Elm Street as the now iconic Freddy Krueger and to mark the occasion, he’s doing it one last time.

At the Flashback Weekend on August 8th (get tickets here), Englund will be putting on the make-up for photos and signing autographs. Here’s what else is happening…

Flashback Weekend is a horror convention with a deeper initiative. Our philanthropic efforts are dedicated to the preservation of the American Drive-In. Flashback Weekend owns and operates the Midway Drive-In located in Dixon, Il to support the film industry and to present classic 35mm horror film festivals. For this reason, all net proceeds from Flashback Weekend and the Robert Englund Freddy Krueger make-up photo-ops go to the preservation and operation of the Midway Drive-In, located in Dixon, Il.

Review: Bad Dreams and Visiting Hours (Double Feature Blu-ray)

25 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The good ol’ horror-loving folks at Scream! Factory recently gave us a double dose of hospital-themed terror in high definition with their Bad Dreams/Visiting Hours Blu-ray, which features the two cult classics as well as a handful of new bonus features. Par for the course, Scream’s presentation of the material is yet another home run, making it a must-own for fans or even the uninitiated.

First up on the hospital horror double feature is Bad Dreams, which follows a young woman named Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin) who awakens from a 13-year coma the sole survivor of a religious cult that burned together in a suicide pact orchestrated by an enigmatic leader named Harris (Richard Lynch). Harris believed true spiritual unity awaited his followers if they all died together, but of course with Cynthia surviving, that leaves her leader with some unfinished business. Soon, the young woman begins to fear »

Review: "Bad Dreams" (1988) And "Visiting Hours" (1982) Blu-ray Double Feature From Scream Factory

19 February 2014 3:09 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Scream Factory continues their winning streak of releasing horror film favorites with their double feature Blu-ray release of 1988’s Bad Dreams and 1982’s Visiting Hours. They originally released these films together on DVD in September 2011.

Bad Dreams opened on Friday, April 8, 1988 and is, in hindsight, eerily prescient of David Koresh, the leader of the Branch Davidian religious sect who met a horrific end when the FBI closed in on him and his compound ignited into a conflagration on April 19, 1993 in Waco, TX. Jim Jones and the Jonestown deaths in 1978 also come to mind. In this film, the late Richard Lynch plays a cult leader named Harris who convinces a group of people that love and unity are the only ways to live, and he shows that love by dousing them all in gasoline and lighting them on fire. Jennifer Rubin plays Cynthia, a confused and reluctant holdout »

What an amazing week for TV fans.

And then there’s the still-amazing “Darkman,” a cult classic that perfectly captures Sam Raimi’s skill at controlled chaos. Finally, we have two ’80s horror flicks in one set in “Bad Dreams” and “Visiting Hours.” Check ‘em all out (Ok, you can skip the genre stinkers).

*Updated* Bad Dreams and Visiting Hours Blu-ray Release Details

6 January 2014 3:00 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

*Updated* Back in 2011, Shout! Factory released 80′s horror cult movies, Bad Dreams and Visiting Hours, in a 2-disc DVD set. Thanks to Scream Factory’s recent success, both titles will be getting a Blu-ray upgrade next year:

via Scream Factory: “Some of you may be aware that Shout Factory released this double feature already on DVD only in 2011 as a “Killer Double Feature”. All the extras from that release will be ported over including new extras that are in the works for Visiting Hours (which had only TV spots and a still gallery at the time.). No firm details to report on them at this time. Artwork is not final but expect it to look close to what’s presented here.”

Bad Dreams: “In the mid-1970s the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought “the ultimate joining” by dousing themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. A »
