Video Interview: The Guest Star Dan Stevens

16 September 2014 9:14 PM, PDT

You’re Next director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett reteam for this week’s The Guest, an intense, bloody horror thriller that also manages to be rather tongue-in-cheek, both playing in and breaking down its many genres. Headlining the film is Dan Stevens (who also stars in this week’s A Walk Among the Tombstones) in the…

Sneak Peek Tour: Halloween Horror Nights’ Clowns 3D & The Walking Dead

16 September 2014 5:31 PM, PDT

It's that time of year again when Shock Till You Drop gets to visit Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights for a sneak peek at what they have in store. This year, as with previous, we got to tour two of the mazes in detail. We have a look at the latest The Walking Dead maze as well as an all new, original maze entitled Clowns 3D with music by Slash.

Our first stop took us to a twisted clown with rolling eyes and a mouth as a doorway. This was the entrance for "Clowns 3D". Halloween Horror Night mastermind John Murdy met up with us there and showed us a hint of what we would be in for. The story is twisted. There was this ice cream emporium that had a funhouse, but as time went on, people stopped coming, they don't like clowns anymore. So the owners have »

An American Guinea Pig Series is Being Made – Can You Stomach the Grisly Trailer?

16 September 2014 4:36 PM, PDT

The notorious Guinea Pig film series is apparently paving the wave for an American counterpart entitled, appropriately, American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore. When an e-mail about the trailer floated my way, the "Plot Outline" simply read: "Death." Fair enough. And the trailer? It delivers on that.

It's rather cold and crude, as it should be I suppose, and it features a trio of dudes taking bodies apart. The preview comes across as more of an impressive, albeit hyper violent, special FX demo reel (in this case for Marcus Koch).

Review: Smith Gets Closer to Making a Horror Film With the Uneven Tusk

16 September 2014 3:02 PM, PDT

Tusk is a bit of a mess. But this is what you get from an idea born on writer-director (podcaster) Kevin Smith's SModcast and molded from both conversations had there and by fan input. It's an uneven horror-comedy that could have easily worked had it not been for the strained humor that takes control of the narrative halfway through. Balancing horror and comedy is hard, as history has proven, but Smith has an especially difficult time here. Tusk works best when it's embracing its outlandish nature and the uneasy laughs that derive from the terrifying notion of a man being transformed into a walrus. On that alone, Smith sails uncharted, exciting waters career-wise. However, he steers the film back around into more familiar territory that will no doubt please fans of his podcast and his earlier films but will disappoint those looking for him deliver a tonally consistent horror film. »

Shock Interview: A Conversation with The Guest’s Dan Stevens

16 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT

Dan Stevens has proven that he’s more than capable of handling dramatic roles, with titles like Macbeth and Downton Abbey under his belt, but perhaps his most striking performance to date is also his most unlikely in The Guest.

In this love letter to 1980s thrillers, Stevens proves just how versatile he can be as David, the Southern gentleman who harbors a dark secret.

In the film, the grief-stricken Peterson family is in the midst of dealing with the loss of their son when a man named David shows up at their door, claiming to have known Caleb when they served together in the military, shortly before his untimely demise.

Review: Asmodexia a Fresh Twist on the Exorcism Genre

16 September 2014 6:49 AM, PDT

Let’s face it. Exorcism movies have been a bit played out in the last few years. When Paranormal Activity made demons scary again almost half a decade ago, a slew of films came along that immediately plugged into the vein of that and mixed The Exorcist with found footage. What we got was a plethora of bargain bin scares like The Rite and some decent titles like The Last Exorcism and Atrocious.

With Asmodexia, writer-director Mark Carreté has crafted an original and unique entry into the exorcism genre without having to turn it into a traditional shaky cam affair.

Review: Inner Demons is an Intervention You Should Skip

15 September 2014 5:24 PM, PDT

When it comes to found footage, the biggest challenge is coming up for a reason to be shot that way. This leads to the “guy who films everything” scenario or the “camera crew” scenario”, both of which are less than convincing. The new film Inner Demons attempts to bring something new to the table by taking place during a Reality-style Intervention show. Is it successful? That is going to depend on you.

Catholic school good girl Carson (Lara Vosburgh) is not quite the girl she used to be. Having gone from an A student to failing heroin addict, as well as becoming the poster child for The Craft remake, her parents are understandably concerned. Not knowing who to turn to, parents Steve (Christopher Parker) and Beth (Colleen McGrann), do what any responsible family would, they turn to reality TV.
