With Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno finally hitting UK cinemas next week (on limited release) we thought we’d present our review a little differently, with not one but Two reviews of the cannibalistic horror film from two horror loving guest reviewers… Check out both reviews below; and if The Green Inferno isn’t showing near you next week, don’t worry – it’s released on DVD and Blu-ray on February 22nd.
Green Inferno – Con
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I have a love/hate relationship with horror. I love its ingenuity and its ability to ponder the greater mysteries from behind a gory veil, but I’m realistic, I can enjoy entertainment horror when it comes pounding my way, »

Now that 2015 is over, there are plenty of ‘Best Of’ lists pronouncing the movies you should have seen already. Hell, even we did it at Flickering Myth. But by the end of the year, it’s too late. You suddenly have 50+ films you missed out on to catch up with. Where were the ‘Best Ofs’ as the year was in progress? That’s where Flickering Myth’s Big, Fat Movie Checklist of 2016 comes in.
Suicide Squad is released on 5th August, 2016.
While there are many retrospective lists online, there are very few resources updated regularly for the movies of the year.
Below are the movies worth watching in 2016, based on their current UK release dates (which these days is pretty similar to the Us). Most of the January releases have already come out, many upcoming ones will be pushed back or brought forward. We’ll update the list monthly to »

Caged and waiting to be eaten. Visited by the dead at nightfall. Asked to climb into the oven to clean it. The characters in The Green Inferno, Sinister 2, and The Visit are faced with horror of many forms, and while their scary situations are vastly different from one another, all of their stories can now be experienced on Blu-ray.
The Green Inferno: Hopeful for change, the student activists travel to the Amazon rainforest to save a tribe threatened by deforestation, only to be captured by the natives and placed on the menu. In The Green Inferno, Eli Roth exposes viewers to a palpable sense of primal fear, realistically placing his young cast of well-meaning characters in a horrifying “what if?” situation made all the more real by the filming location: a village deep in the jungles of Peru.
Although Roth’s unique brand of humor takes precedence over »

Daryl Sabara has come a long way as an actor since his days as Juni Cortez in the Spy Kids series. Having tackled the bully role in Rob Zombie’s Halloween, a cholo in the Robert Rodriguez-helmed Machete and many other fun roles, he’s now ready to be served up to cannibals with his role in Eli Roth’s Cannibal Film homage, The Green Inferno (review). As Lars, a man devoted to helping save the rainforest, he’s thrust into a horrific fate when he and the rest of the survivors of a plane crash are abducted by a cannibalistic tribe.
We thought it would nice to reach out to Daryl, and thanks to fine folks at Universal, we spoke to Sabara about the film, his preparation for it, as well as other things. Read on, and check out The Green Inferno, which is out now on DVD/Bluray/VOD via Universal. »

Universal is giving horror fans a double shot of Blumhouse horror, with today’s release of M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy as hell Pov film, The Visit, as well as Eli Roth’s cannibal horror homage, The Green Inferno. How do these two films and their DVD/Bluray releases fare for their respective directors? Quite antithetically, with the former being a return to form and a high point for its filmmaker and the latter marking yet another downer of an experience. For a full look at each release, read on!
Most definitely one of the biggest surprise hits of 2015, The Visit marks a complete return to form for The Sixth Sense/Signs filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. Gone are the escalating price tags that Shyamalan relied so heavily on following the success of his “I see dead people” breakout hit. What we’re given with this »

Happy 2016, everyone! I sure hope you received some shopping money this holiday season, as this first week of horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases is a big one and we’ve got a lot to look forward to. Two of my personal favorites of 2015 are making their way home this week to Blu-ray and DVD—Deathgasm and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse—and Universal is serving up a double dose of terror with their releases of The Green Inferno and The Visit.
Scream Factory is also keeping busy with their double feature Blu-ray of The House Where Evil Dwells / Ghost Warrior and Over Your Dead Body, the latest from Takashi Miike. Other notable releases on January 5th include The Inhabitants, Wrecker, Condemned, and Kill Game.

Universal is putting out Blumhouse & Eli Roth’s homage to all things Deodato, The Green Inferno on a week or so, but we couldn’t wait to send a copy your way.
