Watch FilmOn Binge: One Step Beyond for Free
FilmOn now has FilmOn Binge: “One Step Beyond,” which can be viewed for free. “One Step Beyond” is a show that’s similar to “The Twilight Zone,” so if you’re a fan of vintage sci-fi and mystery tales, you’ll find a lot to love with “One Step Beyond.” Here’s more about the show: “Launched at the same time as ‘The Twilight Zone,’ this TV series fed the growing interest in paranormal suspense differently. Rather than creating fictional stories with supernatural twists, this series sought out ‘real’ stories of the supernatural and re-created them.” You can watch all episodes of the series at FilmOn, including “Call from Tomorrow,” Episode 19 from Season [ Read More ]

Attention Montreal horror movie fans: The Miskatonic Insitute of Horror Studies releases its 3rd annual lineup!

Anybody living in or around Montreal knows that La Belle Province’s metropolis is a fantastic place to be a film lover, especially for horror films. Now the obvious reason why this would be the case is the Fantasia International Film Festival, which had its 16th edition run this past July and August. Yet another, perhaps lesser know (but certainly growing) venue for Montreal horror film buffs to satisfy their cravings is the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies, a unique experience if there ever was one.

The fine folks at Miskatonic have, in essence, set up a non-profit ‘school’ of sorts where an actual curriculum is set up for which films lovers and hopeful filmmakers can sign up for courses which last from September to April of the following year. Among the speakers are established writers, filmmakers and curators who provide bountiful insight, intelligent critical analysis and commentary on the

R.I.P. Ernest Borgnine (1917-2012)

Academy Award-winning American film and television actor Ernest Borgnine has passed away from renal failure in Los Angeles, California, aged 89. The son of Italian immigrants, Borgnine was born in Hamden, Connecticut in 1917 and served in the United States Navy during World War II, after which he decided to pursue a career on the stage. Joining Virginia's Barter Theatre, Borgnine earned rave reviews for his role as the Gentleman Caller in Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, which opened the doors to Broadway where he was able to develop his skills as a character actor.

After moving to Los Angeles, Borgnine made his film debut in 1951's China Corsair but his big breakthrough came two years later with an acclaimed supporting turn as Staff Sergeant "Fatso" Judson in the Oscar darling From Here to Eternity; he would subsequently find himself the recipient of an Academy Award, taking home the Best Actor gong

Rest in Peace: Warren Stevens

The word just reached us that a true legend passed away earlier this week, and we're saddened to pass on the news that actor Warren Stevens, who appeared in Forbidden Planet as well as numerous TV shows, died in Sherman Oaks, California, on Tuesday, March 27th at age 92.

Stevens, who suffered from lung disease, also acted in "The Twilight Zone" in both 1962 and 1986, "The Outer Limits", "One Step Beyond", and "Alfred Hitchcock Present", among many other films and TV series.

Born in Clark's Summit, Pennsylvania, Stevens attended the Naval Academy but left before graduating due to problems with his vision, though he later served as a pilot in the U.S. Army Air Corps during WWII. He developed his interest in acting while at Annapolis and did summer stock before entering the service during the war. After WWII he returned to summer stock, worked in radio, and joined the Actors Studio in New York.

The Beyond Blu-ray Review

  • HeyUGuys
With a gory and Gothic opening Lucio Fulci thrusts us straight into a world in which chains tear at flesh in the most grisly ways possible and the most effective way of finally finishing off a man you’re torturing and murdering is with a semi-crucifixion and a lot of acid to the face. This is The Beyond and if you find those first few minutes hard to stomach then you’re probably not prepared for the gruesome tale that Fulci unfolds in graphic detail on screen.

Aside from setting the tone and providing an opening that somewhat explains the supernatural curse at the heart of The Beyond this preface also plays out a little like a bridge between the classic Gothic film tradition and the lurid strain of horror that Fulci was a something of a master in. Never perhaps considered quite as artistically interesting as his Italian contemporaries

Arrow Video Announces The Beyond Blu And More!

I announced this here a while ago, but the news just became more official.  Arrow Video have posted the Rick Melton's custom cover art and specs for their world exclusive Blu-ray presentation of The Beyond.  In my opinion, this film is Lucio Fulci's masterpiece, and while some argument can be made for Zombie Aka Zombi 2 Aka Zombie Flesh Eaters, I think this one trumps it easily.  This new edition is due for release on Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2011, and would make a lovely gift!  Check out the awesome specs and great custom cover art!This Amazing Edition Contains:

- 4 option reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork

- Double-sided fold-out poster

- Collector's booklet featuring an introduction to the film by Eli Roth, director of 'Cabin Fever', 'Hostel' and 'Hostel Part II', 'Beyond Bombast' and an interview with Al Cliver by author

[Blu-Review] Alien Anthology

Finally, one of the box-sets we’ve all been waiting for! The Alien franchise is one of those series that’s perfect for Blu-Ray. It is a benchmark for the format and you can check out our full review of The Alien Anthology below.


How much can one say about the timeless classic sci-fi horror film that hasn’t been said before? Well, very little. This is still Ridley Scott‘s finest film to date and it hasn’t aged a bit. Every beat of tension still lands with a punch, the alien is still one of the best ever to be put on-screen, and it’s atmosphere stays eerie and unsettling throughout.

Alien is the king of the monster movies. Very few horror films can achieve the level of investment Scott and co. did with making you actually care for the ensemble, even outside of Ripley. What

[DVD Review] Alien Anthology

Let’s level with each other: you’ve already seen all of the (or at least the first two) Alien films, and have formed an opinion roughly in alignment with the rest of society that the first two in the series are excellent, but that the latter two were largely ruined by a combination of repetitiveness and studio interference. You probably already have the Alien Quadrilogy, and have ample resources to find out what new supplemental materials are featured on this release (and they are legion). But as much as anything, you don’t need me to tell you what each of these films is about, what characters appear in any of them, and why you should go out of your way to see any of them. The Alien franchise is established in a way that few are, with its rules, aesthetic, and central themes renowned to those who have

Alien Anthology Blu-ray Review

Holy God. That’s one of the first reactions one has to 20th Century Fox’s six disc Blu-ray release of the Alien Anthology. It was put together by Charles de Lauzirika, and he’s the guy who’s been doing all the supplements for this franchise for years now, including the awkwardly named Alien Quadrilogy. His task was to make a collection that had not only improved picture and sound quality, but all the supplements of previous releases, and even more additional content. He and his team delivered; this is the mother lode. Of course, the series is also presented immaculately, with each film offering two cuts, deleted scenes, commentaries and isolated scores. The six disc set has over 60 hours of supplements. It’s mind-boggling and overwhelming, but also the perfect franchise for this sort of study, and it’s perfect for Blu-ray. Our humbled review of the Alien
