Blu-ray Review – Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (1985)

14 November 2016 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf, 1985.

Directed by Philippe Mora.

Starring Christopher Lee, Sybil Danning, Annie McEnroe, Marsha J. Hunt, Reb Brown, Jimmy Nail, Ladislav Krecmer, James M. Crawford and Hana Ludvikova.

Synopsis:

The brother of a girl murdered by werewolves hires an investigator to track the beasts from the Us across to Europe.

So the story goes, when Christopher Lee was cast in Joe Dante’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch the first thing the veteran actor did was approach the director and apologise for appearing in Howling II. Dante wasn’t involved in the sequel to his 1981 werewolf hit but it goes to show a) how fond people are of his movie and b) where Christopher Lee’s career was in the mid-1980s because Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (a horrible title amongst a whole list of even worse alternatives) is both an insult »

Blu-ray Review: Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes (1977) [Limited Edition]

27 October 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It's hard to believe now that it has been over a year since we lost Wes Craven, one of the all-time great horror filmmakers who knew better than most how to truly scare an audience. His special gift wasn't that he was the most polished of directors; with only a few exceptions (like Scream), his movies were mostly rough edges. I happen to like rough edges. No, Craven's talent was for zeroing in on our primal fears and realizing them onscreen. He didn't want to spook us with tricks and jump scares and he rarely wanted the horror to be "fun." He wanted to shake us to our cores. This was especially true in much of his early work, primarily The Last House on the Left, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Hills Have Eyes, out now in a stunning limited edition Blu-ray from Arrow Video.

The Hills Have Eyes is all rough edges. »

For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Stone to discuss getting behind the camera for her directorial debut, working with Tony Todd, upcoming projects, and more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Gabrielle. You’ve stayed busy as an actress over the past several years, and you have several exciting projects coming up. What can you tell us about your role in the new movie Death House, which features an all-star lineup of horror icons?

Gabrielle Stone: I can't say too much without giving plot lines away, but my character appears in the very end of the film opposite Tony Todd. It's safe to say my character leads into the sequel, »

Blu-ray Review – The Hills Have Eyes (1977)

3 October 2016 5:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hills Have Eyes, 1977.

Directed by Wes Craven.

Starring Susan Lanier, Dee Wallace, Michael Berryman, Robert Houston, Russ Grieve, John Steadman, Lance Gordon, Martin Speer, James Whitworth, Virginia Vincent, Janus Blythe and Cordy Clark.

Synopsis:

An all-American family travelling across country fall foul of a clan of cannibals that live in the desert.

Quite surprisingly, this is the first UK Blu-ray release of the late Wes Craven’s 1977 notorious horror outing The Hills Have Eyes; surprising because, despite the title being a well-known and not very obscure movie, the hilariously awful 1984 sequel got an HD release first. Nevertheless, it’s here now and thankfully it was cult movie specialists Arrow Video who got to give it its UK Blu-ray debut.

The Carters are a typical all-American family driving across the Us desert to spend some family time together celebrating mum and dad’s silver wedding anniversary. Stopping off at a »

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's Cujo

12 September 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rebecca Lea Sep 26, 2016

It's a book that Stephen King doesn't remember much about writing. But how does the film of Cujo fare?

The Film: The Trentons, consisting of Vic, Donna and their son, Tad, have recently moved to Castle Rock, Maine from the big city. He’s an advertising exec with a campaign in crisis, she’s a bored housewife having an affair with local bearded wonder, Steve. Meanwhile, the pet of Joe Camber, a nearby mechanic, is a dog named Cujo, who has unfortunately been bitten by a rabid bat during a rabbit chase. When Donna journeys up to the Cambers to get their car fixed with Tad in tow, they have no idea that the now rabid Cujo lies in wait for them.

Stephen King openly admits he has little memory of writing Cujo, as he put the book together during the height of his alcohol addiction. It »

Exclusive Interview: Scream Queen Barbara Crampton

8 September 2016 10:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Barbara Crampton Interview

Barbara Crampton is a horror icon. Starring in such movies as The Re-Animator and Chopping Mall, she became one of the most familiar faces of fright flicks throughout the eighties and nineties. She then stepped away from the genre around the late nineties as she became a series regular on American daytime soap The Young and the Restless. However, she couldn’t stay away for long and for the last few years has been getting back involved in the horror genre, popping up in such films as You’re Next, We are Still Here and Road Games.

Road Games screened for a second year in a row this year at Frightfest. The film debuted last year and this time around saw the director, Abner Pastoll, return to take part in a live director’s commentary. It also forms part of the third wave of Frightfest Presents titles. »

How Horror Movies Helped Me Grow Up in a Single-Parent Home

7 September 2016 4:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

First of all, before I start this, I just want to point out that my childhood, despite various factors, was still really great and I’m truly grateful that I grew up the way that I did. My circumstances allowed me to learn a lot and grow to be fiercely independent, and much of that is still something that I carry with me. But the reality is that I did grow up in a home with only a single mom (for most of the time), which meant my childhood was a lot different than many kids I grew up with. And at times, I felt like the odd girl out—but all that changed when I really got into horror.

I spent the first 14 years of my life living in a trailer park in Des Plaines, Illinois, practically a stone’s throw away from the O’Hare International Airport. We »

Though not likely to release until 2017, a first trailer has landed online:

Did you spot your favourite horror icon? In our chat Crampton revealed that Hodder will be taking a central role and the trailer definitely seems to reflect that.

So what’s Death House all about? Well the official synopsis is thus:

Poster and trailer for ‘Expendables of Horror’ ensemble Death House

4 September 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A poster and trailer have arrived online for Harrison Smith’s ‘Expendables of Horror’ ensemble Death House, which features a host of genre favourites; check them out here…

The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil… a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural.

Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII.

Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control. »

Barbara Crampton reveals ‘Death House’ details [Exclusive]

1 September 2016 5:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Barbara Crampton is a horror icon; she made a name for herself in the genre playing Megan Halsey in The Re-Animator. Since then she’s appeared in many more films and has been a regular name on the credits of films at the last three year’s of Horror Channel Frightfest events.

We caught up with the scream queen just before this year’s Frightfest where she stars in both Beyond the Gates and Road Games. She was in high spirits about the festival and was upset that she wasn’t able to make it. She did however update us on her next project – Death HouseDeath House is basically a horror version of The Expendables, with all the big names of horror uniting. The project had a lot of input from the late Gunnar Hansen, but despite having the royalty of horror attached, is still in search of a »

Jay Kay’s Top Four Fantasia Film Festival Picks

Four Film Favorites From The 2016 Fantasia International Film Festival

The massive under taking that is the Fantasia International Film Festival is a celebration of culture, art, community and film. I was fortunate enough to attend the final weekend of the festival that comprised theater screenings as well as what was available for viewing in the screening room at Fantasia HQ. While I do focus on horror primarily, this film festival hosts so many amazing shorts, features, documentaries, animation and more for nearly three weeks that you discover some incredible entries of storytelling! These are my four favorite films and honorable mentions from my time at Fantasia based off the viewings I had access to over that long weekend.

 

Too Young To Die / Directed By Kankuro Kudo (Japan)

Balls to the wall fun, a ton of heart and rock & roll on a canvas of Japanese filmmaking madness! This supernatural tale blends lots of laughs, »

Fantasia 2016 Round-Up Reviews!

3 August 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This year, the 20th Anniversary of the Fantasia International Film Festival, was a good one for film lovers and cinephiles all around. Film like Let Me Make You A Martyr (review), Slash (review), Another Evil (review) and The Alchemist Cookbook (review) really left an impression on me and with the fest coming to an end, we thought it would be cool to shine the spotlight on a few others you fright fanatics should look out for.

 

1.) White Coffin (Dir. Daniel de la Vega)

Co-written by Ramiro García Bogliano and Adrian García Bogliano (Late Phases, Here Comes The Devil), White Coffin is a smile that has a lot going for it, but gets weighed down by some interesting use of music and a running time that leaves its viewer wondering if they missed the film while blinking (its running time is under 70 minutes). The story follows a woman whose daughter is »
