Happy Thanksgiving!

22 November 2012 11:17 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’d like to wish our Us readers a Happy Thanksgiving! We’ll be taking off for the rest of the day, but wanted to share to share a handful of movie trailers to get you into the turkey (or human) carving mood…

First up, we have the mock trailer for Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving. If you’re looking for suggestions for horror movies to watch tonight, we also included trailers for Motel Hell, Blood Feast, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

Once again, we’d like to thank all of our readers for their support this year. Daily Dead has grown by leaps and bounds in 2012, and it’s all thanks to our readers and contributors. Just because breaking news will slow down during the holiday season, doesn’t mean that we have any plans to slow down. We have more exclusive features and contests headed your way, »

"Silver Scream Live": JimmyO Burril speaks

9 October 2012 2:26 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

One month in and one month to go till show time, the cast of Silver Scream is becoming a lean mean horror machine.  Besides the normal vocal rehearsals and choreography, the 2012 Silver Scream Live cast is being taught a lesson in horror history.  I take great joy in bringing horror classics to my cast, whose ages range from 17 52. About half the cast is savvy in the old black and white flicks I grew up on, but the other half only know the films by name.  So each Friday night, we have a horror double feature.  We started with Universal’s Dracula and The Wolf Man, and will work our way through Blood Feast and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). One cast member confessed to seeing the remake but not the original, and I almost had to ask them to leave.  We take our chainsaws seriously at the Burril house.

The Godfather of Gore Speaks!

2 September 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

BearManor Media proudly announces the release of The Godfather of Gore Speaks: Hershell Gordon Lewis Discusses His Films.

Exploitation filmmaker Herschell Gordon Lewis is credited with single-handedly creating the gore genre with the 1963 release Blood Feast. This low-budget shocker would ultimately influence nearly every horror movie which has followed, as well as “high-brow” films as varied The Wild Bunch and Reservoir Dogs. Lewis, dubbed “The Godfather of Gore,” crafted more than thirty-five films in… More »

The Wizard of Gore and The Gore Gore Girls are Now Available on Blu-ray

3 June 2012 12:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Wizard of Gore and The Gore Gore Girls were recently released on Blu-ray by Image Entertainment and Something Weird Video. However, there wasn’t a big announcement for the release and it hasn’t really been covered online, so we wanted to let our readers know about it. Continue reading for cover art and additional release details. For fans of Herschell Gordon Lewis, we also have news of a project to restore some of his previously lost films.

The Wizard Of Gore (1970, Unrated, 95 Mins.): Is it magic? Or wholesale slaughter? Montag the Magnificent (Ray Sager), The Wizard Of Gore, is a seedy small time magician with a shocking stage act. Hypnotizing pretty young women from the audience to be his obedient volunteers, Montag then proceeds to mutilate them in a series of Grand Guignol illusions. A woman is cut in half with a chainsaw, another is drilled through »

A Planet Fury-approved selection of notable genre releases for May.

42nd Street Forever (2012) Blu-ray Available Now

225 minutes of pure awesome. Exploitation fans won’t want to miss Synapse Films' latest trailer compilation.

The Wizard of Gore/The Gore Gore Girls (1970/1972) Blu-ray Available Now

Something Weird’s Blu-ray release of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Blood Trilogy last year was a minor revelation. The Blood Feast print, presented in glorious high definition, was stunning in its gore-soaked clarity. All three films (including Two Thousand Maniacs and Color Me Blood Red) highlighted superior transfers, but Blood Feast was the standout. »

10 Commonly Overlooked Horror Films Worth Seeing

31 March 2012 12:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When I was a kid, I used to love a scary movie. I remember catching the original The Haunting (1963) one night on Channel 9’s Million Dollar Movie when I was home alone. Before it was over, I had every light in the house on. When my mother got home she was screaming she’d been able to see the house glowing from two blocks away. The only thing screaming louder than her was the electricity meter.

That was something of an accomplishment, scaring me like that. Oh, it’s not that I was hard to scare (I still don’t like going down into a dark cellar). But, in those days, the movies didn’t have much to scare you with. Back as far as the 50s, you might find your odd dismemberment and impaling, even an occasional decapitation, but, generally, the rule of the day was restraint. Even those rare dismemberments, »

Chris Haberman's VHS Misadventures

19 January 2012 1:10 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Need to ask a favor, folks. Here’s the deal: Months ago my wife and I and our friend John, whom you will meet later, decided to utilize our precious vacation time to rent a car and drive from our native Kentucky to Colorado. The goal was just to see what happened along the way. We departed on a Friday night with no reservations and a minimum of must-see destinations (the Badlands were imperative; the rest could be bypassed according to our whims at that time, at that moment).

I had no idea what was in store for me. Waking up in a national park to find an accusatory mountain goat looking in your filthy SUV’s window is one thing. Finding an ancient video store willing to sell hundreds of VHS tapes for $1.99 each is utterly another.

I present to you, dear, dear readers ... The Video Vendor.

We were in Newcastle, »

Hazzard County Reunion In “Return Of The Killer Shrews”

11 January 2012 10:23 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Ray Kelllogg’s 1959 schlocker The Killer Shrews is probably best remembered for the laughable titular beasts, actually dogs “dressed” as shrews, but has gone on to b-movie infamy over time via countless video releases and a hilarious Mystery Science Theater 3000 roast. In this day and age, where years between sequels is hardly a concern (notably on follow-ups to Hg Lewis films, for some reason: 41 years between Lewis’ Two Thousand Maniacs (’64) and Tim Sullivan’s 2001 Maniacs (’05); and 39 years between his Blood Feast (’63) and its follow-up Blood Feast 2 (’02), but these are just two examples), it is no surprise that filmmaker Steve Latshaw would give new life to the cult of Shrew with Return Of The Killer Shrews.

Latshaw has reveled in the off-beat his whole career, helming b-movie goodies Dark Universe in 1993, and Jack-o in 1995, and writing dozens more since. On Shrews he reunites with star James Best, with whom Latshaw »

The Blood Trilogy Blu-ray Review

10 January 2012 8:42 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

To a certain segment of the film going population, the three features that form H.G. Lewis' Blood Trilogy are seminal. Director Lewis and producer David Friedman invented the gore film with Blood Feast and continued to perfect their formula for the next decade until it ran out of steam and they looked for another way to make a buck. The incredible Something Weird Video has been a champion of Lewis, and made one of this trilogy their entry into the world of Blu-ray. The Blood Trilogy has never looked this good, probably not even on the big screen. These discs are must own discs for any fan of '60s sleaze or exploitation cinema.Herschell Gordon Lewis' pioneering "gore" films in deluxe special editions. First, Mrs. Fremont »
