Yikes. "Hey u guyz!!!" "Whazzz happening?!" "Nothing much." "O yuck!" "Hey, I think there's a mean and Nasty serial killer in the video chat room with us." "Get outta here!!!!!!!" "No, I'm serious!" "I am Too, Dude!" The above quotations are not taken directly from Unfriended, but are intended to convey some of the texture, the nuance, and the typing/spelling skills of the characters portrayed in the movie. Unlike Nacho Vigalondo's Open Windows, which debuted at SXSW last year and takes place on a variety of screens and locations using different types of footage, Unfriended unfolds entirely on a computer screen belonging to teenage Blaire (Shelley Hennig). She and her boyfriend are video chatting and flirting one night before they are joined by three friends....

Think you've seen "V/H/S: Viral"? Not all of it, as it turns out. Though the theatrical and VOD release of the third chapter in Magnet's horror anthology series featured segments by directors Nacho Vigalondo, Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop, Justin Benson and Aaron Scott Moorhead, fans who buy the DVD or Blu-ray will be treated to a surprise sixth segment directed by Todd Lincoln ("The Apparition"). Titled "Gorgeous Vortex," the visually-dazzling short was inspired by "avante-garde video artists, fashion photography, old Italian Horror movies, George Lucas’s early experimental films, and the writings of J.G. Ballard and Jean Baudrillard" -- quite a mashup of influences! Lincoln spoke with HitFix recently about the film, which journeys into a cryptic, sensual world of murder, the occult and, yes, fashion models. Curious? Here's a teaser: In addition to an in-depth discussion of the short, Lincoln also provided more insight into his 2012 feature film "The Apparition, »

It’s a pretty decent week for horror lovers, with the February 17th release of not only the latest in the popular V/H/S series hitting DVD/Bluray, but also the wonderfully entertaining documentary Life Itself, as well as various other genre and film-related entries. Thankfully, the gang at Icons of Fright have had the chance to take a peak at a few of this week’s titles, and there really aren’t any films Not worth picking up. Read on!
The third film in the V/H/S series, V/H/S: Viral takes some of the genre’s up and coming directors and sets them loose, with the result being either entertaining or lacking in some parts. The Benson/Moorhead segment “Bonestorm” is one that features skateboarders with GoPro camers »

Fury Last night I popped this Blu-ray in to check out the deleted scenes and I made it through about ten minutes worth before I just couldn't stay awake any longer. There are about 50 minutes of deleted and extended scenes on this thing and from those first ten minutes it seems like the cuts were a very good decision. For starters, they add nothing to the movie, particularly an extended introduction to Logan Lerman's character where Jon Bernthal acts even more like an animal toward him, plus the editing is quite bad as David Ayer clearly didn't have the coverage he needed to cut the scenes together with the extended material. Nevertheless, I find this to be a solid movie, and one I do intend on rewatching and I'm going to dig a little deeper into those deleted scenes and if there's more to say I'll probably write up a full review. »
