“Blood Diner” has accumulated a small fan base since it was first released. After watching the film for the first time myself, I cannot say I am part of that fan base. This film was not what I thought it would be and was sillier than I thought it would be. And this is coming from a guy who likes most comedy horror films!
The film is about two cannibal brothers Michael and George Tutman, »
Something Weird is coming to FullMoonStreaming.com in a Big way! Read on for probably one of the coolest (and weirdest) announcements you'll see all week... and that's saying something given that it's San Diego Comic-Con Week!
From the Press Release
Full Moon is thrilled to announce the latest addition to the FullMoonStreaming.com roster: an untamed collection of classic cult, horror, and exploitation movies culled from the legendary Something Weird library!
The brainchild of late exploitation film curator and weird cinema enthusiast Mike Vraney (who tragically lost his battle with lung cancer earlier this year), Something Weird is widely recognized as the premiere imprint for awesomely lurid, cult cinema. The company has thousands of bizarre and wonderful motion pictures under their umbrella, representing every single strain of strangeness from greasy, hard and soft-core erotica to tassel-twirling burlesque; from European gladiator epics to gory horror gems; from druggie freak out potboilers and beyond. »

It's been over 50 years since Herschell Gordon Lewis pioneered the art of the splatter film, and it makes us happy to see he's still doing his thing all these years later. At the ripe old age of 85, the "Godfather of Gore" is readying principal photography on an anthology called BloodMania.
Read on, splatter fiends!
From the Press Release
BloodMania is a new anthology film with four distinctively different horror tales, each featuring Herschell Gordon Lewis' brand of splatter. Principal photography begins late July 2014 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Mr. Lewis has written one segment and will direct two of them.
Herschell Gordon Lewis, originator of the “splatter” film genre, both revered and reviled as the “Godfather of Gore,” has expressed strong enthusiasm for BloodMania. “It’s time to get some fresh blood flowing into the happy universe of horror films,” Herschell said. “I’ll be there to be sure it happens, »

In the mid-1960s, George Romero planned to make his feature debut with Whine of the Fawn, a drama about two teenagers in the Middle Ages. If he'd pitched a body-swap comedy about middle-aged teenagers, he'd perhaps have had more luck. As it was, his high-minded, "Bergman-esque" project failed to attract investors and the 27-year-old college dropout from the Bronx, now shooting commercials and industrials in Pittsburgh, turned his attention to horror.
A fan of the ghoulish EC Comics and monster movies of the 1950s, and heavily influenced by Richard Matheson's apocalyptic, home-invasion vampire novel I Am Legend, Romero scraped together $114,000 to shoot a Diy cannibal flick entitled Night of the Flesh Eaters. Set over a single night in a Pittsburgh farmhouse, it posited an America inexplicably overrun by resurrected corpses munching on human entrails, and threw together a band of scrabbling, squabbling survivors who hole up in a »
Directed by Sion Sono
Written by Sion Sono
Fans of transgressive cinema were overjoyed to see Sion Sono’s latest atrocity appear on the London Film Festival schedule. The Japanese malcontent is almost as prolific as his countryman Miike Takashi, both of them delivering bold and challenging freshly wrought movies year in, year out. After satirizing emerging fads and consumerism in Suicide Club and taking a skewed look at teen romance, religion and the Japanese nuclear family in Love Exposure, he injects a further dysfunctional analysis throughout Cold Fish, a serial killer-themed tale on the surface that obscures a lurking lampoon on present notions of masculinity, progeny and the contemporary status of morality in Japanese society. Based on a true story which one sincerely prays has been amplified through Sono’s warped vision, Cold Fish is telegraphed »
