IFC Midnight & Scream Factory Team For ‘The Babadook’ Release 4/14!
53 minutes ago
We’d heard early rumors that the fine folks over at Scream Factory might be putting out one of the most acclaimed horror films of the last year on home video. Turns out those rumors were half right. Scream Factory is actually teaming up with IFC Midnight to release the Blu-Ray/ DVD or The Babadook on April 14th, 2015!
Here are the full details and a list of the bonus features!
If it’s in a word, or it’s in a look, you can’t get rid of The Babadook. This chillingly prophetic refrain haunts the worldwide sleeper hit The Babdook, the engrossingly eerie tale of a widowed mother and her troubled young son. On April 14th, 2015, this critically acclaimed psychological thriller makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut from Scream Factory, in partnership with IFC Midnight. The Special Edition Blu-ray, housed in a striking limited run pop-up package, comes loaded with bonus features, »

Review: Digging Up The Marrow
23 hours ago
I’ve never been particularly shy about my love of most of the stuff put out by Adam Green. I’ve gone on record multiple times discussing how Holliston was one of my biggest “pick-me-ups” during cancer recovery and how I firmly believe “The Dog Monologue” from Frozen is probably my favorite horror movie monologue since the “Why I Hate Christmas” speech from Gremlins. Without a doubt, Digging Up The Marrow was one of my most highly anticipated films of 2015. Kept under wraps for most of its production, horror fans have been clamoring for whatever little information they could wrangle out of Green before its release. Going into the film, I knew just as much as everyone else. Digging Up The Marrow is set up like a documentary (without really being a documentary), it’s inspired by the art of Alex Pardee, Ray Wise is in it, and Adam Green is playing himself. »

News Clips/Stills Released For Fear Clinic; Scaring Horror Fans on DVD/Bluray February 10th!
28 January 2015 4:17 PM, PST
The Rob Hall/Aaron Drane created Fear Clinic web-series was a big hit with horror fans, when it first aired on the now defunct (and sorely missed) FEARnet back in 2009. Anchored by genre legend (and Freddy himself) Robert Englund, the series dealt with the various phobias people have, with each episode featuring Englund’s Dr. Andover character helping the patient face and defeat their fears. Thinking the series would make for a good feature (and rightfully so, the movie is a Lot of fun..review soon), Hall directed and co-wrote with Drane, the feature of Fear Clinic, which is set to be unleashed onto DVD/Bluray on February 10th, via Anchor Bay. Featuring Englund’s return as Andover, and starring Curse Of Chucky‘s Fiona Dourif, Angelina Armani, Thomas Dekker, as well as Stone Sour and Slipknot lead vocalist Corey Taylor in his acting debut, the film is a fully »

Scream Factory Sends Tobe Hooper’s Invaders From Mars To Bluray This April!!
28 January 2015 12:18 PM, PST
You love Scream Factory, I love Scream Factory, we all love Scream Factory. It’s time to love the gang at Sf a little more, with their announcement of Tobe Hooper’s 1986 remake of Invaders From Mars making its Bluray debut, when it hits shelves on April 7th. The last time we saw the Scream Factory treatment of a Hooper film, was the Awesome Bluray release of Lifeforce (the collector’s edition of it has sadly gone semi-out of print now), and Invaders From Mars is yet another underrated gem in the filmography of Hooper, so with the announcement, along with a Brand New retrospective including on the disc, it’s martian time. We all love Leatherface and Co. but hey, let’s get us some aliens!

Drafthouse Films Acquires Festival Hit Spring; Hitting Theaters/VOD This March 20th!
27 January 2015 2:03 PM, PST
There wasn’t a single film that I loved in the last few years than Benson/Moorhead’s Resolution. From the first time I saw it, it was a special film and one I already consider one of my all time favorites. When their follow-up, the Lou Taylor Pucci (who was easily the best part of The Evil Dead remake)-led Spring made waves during its festival run, though I don’t know Benson/Moorhead on a personal level, it made me happy as hell (which I’ve heard is a happy place?) for them. When Drafthouse Films picked the film up, it was equally awesome to hear. Just based on the strength on Resolution, I’ve got those guys’ backs till the end (I thought I’d make it sound dramatic sounding), so I’m happy to let you fright fanatics know that Drafthouse is set to unleash the »

Icons of Fright Interview With Turbo Kid’s Michael Ironside!!
26 January 2015 1:34 PM, PST
Chances are, if you’re reading anything on Icons of Fright, Shock Till You Drop, Dread Central or any other genre site (or hell, even if you don’t typically read such sites), then you already know who Michael Ironside is. An actor that has played so many not just memorable but truly iconic roles in films such as Scanners, Total Recall and a personal fave of mine, Prom Night II, Ironside has created a body of work that is legendary and worthy of every ounce of recognition he has gotten. Making its debut as part of this year’s Sundance Film Festival “Midnight Selection”, the Rkss-helmed Turbo Kid (Rkss is the trio team of directors Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell) is set to give fans yet another Ironside role that is one for the books, with his villainous character Zeus. Icons of Fright talked Turbo Kid with Ironside recently, »
