Review: Stage Fright

7 hours ago

As someone whose only tattoo happens to be the iconic red lips from The Rocky Horror Picture Show poster, you could say that my interest in seeing the latest horror musical, Stage Fright, was a “sure thing.” Written and directed by Jerome Sable, Stage Fright is a clever, gory and wickedly fun time that truly celebrates everything we love about horror musicals with an unabashed enthusiasm that you can’t help but fall in love with.

Wasting no time, Stage Fright gets gruesome with a stunning opener that finds Broadway star Kylie Swanson (Minnie Driver) celebrating the performance of a lifetime. Unfortunately for Kylie, that’s exactly what ends up being the case when she is savagely murdered by a masked killer that very evening, leaving her two children- Camilla (Allie MacDonald) and Buddy (Douglas Smith) – in the care of her theatrical producer Roger (Meatloaf).  Some years later, Roger opens »

Review: The Quiet Ones

22 hours ago

After the success of 2012’s The Woman in Black, Britain’s iconic Hammer studios continue their recent return to horror production with another supernatural thriller, John Pogue’s The Quiet Ones. Like its predecessor, The Quiet Ones boasts both an atmospheric, distinctly British period-setting, and a pale, earnest young man who becomes entangled in dark forces beyond his control.

Despite its strong sense of location and more than capable cast, Hammer’s latest venture feels a little unsure of its own identity, relying far too heavily on intrusive, Paranormal Activity style forays into found footage. This is a shame, as underneath all the unnecessary camera-dropping and ten-a-minute scares, there’s actually quite an intriguing film here.

Loosely based on a real life Canadian experiment, Pogue’s film centers around the question of whether or not physical paranormal phenomena can be created by the human mind.  Here, the experiment is relocated to 1970′s Oxford, »

Review: The Sacrament (Monte’s Take)

16 April 2014 11:04 AM, PDT

The Sacrament isn’t necessarily a horror film but that doesn’t make it any less horrific. Ti West, a genre standout who directed the slow burning throwback The Innkeepers and the dread filled The House of the Devil, directs his sixth feature that is reminiscent of the tragic events that transpired at Jonestown in 1978. Creatively handling tension and mystery, even though the subject matter may be familiar to older audiences, West builds and molds the film into an affecting piece of cinema.

Patrick (Kentucker Audley) receives a letter from his estranged sister, Caroline (Amy Seimetz), who has taken refuge in a religious commune known as Eden Parish. Patrick brings along his friends Sam (Aj Bowen) and Jake (Joe Swanberg), both journalists working for Vice, and the three men travel to an undisclosed tropical location. They are met at the gates of the group-built community by armed guards and resentment from some of the members. »

After months of teasing, Wgn America will air the first episode of their new Salem TV series on Sunday, April 20th. Set in 17th century Massachusetts, we have a brand new trailer that gives us a better idea of what we can expect to see throughout the season.

Teaser Poster for Leprechaun: Origins

16 April 2014 8:33 AM, PDT

Lionsgate and WWE Studios officially announced plans to work together on a Leprechaun reboot in early 2012 and it’s expected to be released later this year. We haven’t gotten a look at Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the Leprechaun yet, but we do have a new teaser poster from WWE Studios.

While the movie is titled Leprechaun: Origins, it isn’t supposed to tie directly to the original movies. The plot details have been kept secret, but we’ve been told that they’re going for more of a straight horror film with this movie over a comedy. Here is the original announcement posted by WWE Studios:

“As first reported by Variety, WWE Studios is joining forces with Lionsgate for a two-film slate, the first of which will be a reboot of the hit “Leprechaun” franchise. “Leprechaun: Origins” will star WWE’s own mischievous Superstar Hornswoggle making his feature film debut, »

David Cronenberg’s Scanners is Coming to Blu-ray!

15 April 2014 4:45 PM, PDT

We have fantastic news for fans of Scanners that have been eagerly awaiting news of a Blu-ray release. David Cronenberg has been overseeing a newly restored transfer of the film that will be available on Blu-ray & DVD as part of The Criterion Collection in July:

“With Scanners, David Cronenberg plunges us into one of his most terrifying and thrilling sci-fi worlds. After a man with extraordinary—and frighteningly destructive—telepathic abilities is nabbed by agents from a mysterious rogue corporation, he discovers he is far from the only possessor of such strange powers, and that some of the other “scanners” have their minds set on world domination, while others are trying to stop them. A trademark Cronenberg combination of the visceral and the cerebral, this phenomenally gruesome and provocative film about the expanses and limits of the human brain was the Canadian director’s breakout hit in the United States. »
