Introducing the London Horror Festival

20 October 2011 11:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Introducing the festival that's looking to bring horror back to the theatre...

There are more festivals dedicated to horror than any other kind of film-making. Outside of science fiction there is no genre which can boast such a large and enthusiastic following, who pack out cinemas in their thousands for the opportunity to have the living hell scared out of them by old and new film-makers alike.

Many want to do more than just watch the film: they turn up to showings of The Room and Troll 2 in costume, they bring things to throw and they scream along. As a lifelong fan of both horror and the theatre, I’ve always been baffled as to why there’s so little truly frightening and adventurous horror theatre out there. We’re hoping that the London Horror Festival can help to change that.

It was the cinema which sounded the death-knell »

Good Horror Comes in Threes at Idw

18 October 2011 8:57 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

In a smorgasbord of supernatural awesomeness, premiere comics publisher Idw is offering three #1 ways to jump into the horror comic book world this week, each bearing its own distinctive style and brand of spooks…

Monocyte #1

Panels? What panels? menton3 and Kasra Ghanbari’s Monocyte #1 revokes comic tradition and pans its way across the page like a dystopian children’s picture book—art, art, and more art all around, accompanied by relatively short (if convoluted) spots of language.

This language, if scattered, effectively establishes its futuristic world in a dichotomy of immortals—the ‘olignostics’ and the ‘antedeluvians’. In fact, I’d say that the most fascinating bits of the whole book are the two pages of history outlining the historical rise of both species. Since the current story takes place at the pinnacle of their long war (the ‘monocyte’ character, or ‘one-eyed’, is introduced as a kind of bony, alien messiah »

Not Available on DVD – Curse Of The Crimson Cult

21 September 2011 5:46 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Any film featuring either Christopher Lee or Boris Karloff is an instant must-see for  horror fans. The two terror titans joined forces the first time in 1958′s Corridors Of Blood, a grimy graverobber/mad doctor opus that took place in 19th century England. Ten years later came their second and final collaboration, Curse Of The Crimson Cult (aka Curse Of The Crimson Altar or simply The Crimson Cult) and this time cult siren Barbara Steele, the reigning queen of horror, joined them as well. With this type of fright wattage, you’d expect Curse Of The Crimson Cult to be some sort of classic much-discussed by monster kids just for the cast alone (it’s even got Michael Gough!), but that’s not the case with this strange but confused brew of devil-worshipping, witches, creepy old mansions with secret passageways torture devices, and ritual sacrifices. It’s considered to be »

October '11 Graphic Novel Preview: From Vampires to the "Supernatural"

10 August 2011 8:01 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*A preview of: "Supernatural," "30 Days of Night Omnibus," "The Lovecraft Library, Volume One: Horror Out of Arkham," and "Monocyte."

Tis the season to be jolly for comic book readers. The lists are out, and several titles deserve mention: these books will no doubt make Halloween a merry time for fans of horror as it crosses the media platform barrier. Television, film and novels are getting even more shelf space to bare their fangs with, and some of them are mouth-wateringly enticing:

Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and Christopher Golden (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) are penning "Baltimore, Volume 1: The Plague Ships Trade Paperback."

Set after World War I, Europe is suddenly flooded with vampires. A lone soldier is determined to wipe out the creatures that are ravaging the countrysides, and that is becoming a bit of an obsession. This title is getting an affordable paperback edition by Dark Horse Comics.

'White Dog' (1982): Movie Review

19 March 2011 11:16 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Colleen Wanglund,

Sam Fuller’s White Dog (1982) is an odd movie, and one that I wouldn’t necessarily classify as horror—it’s more of a melodrama. Based loosely on the 1970 novel of the same name by Romain Gary, White Dog was initially banned from theatrical release by the studio due to negative press and rumors that it was racist. With a screenplay by Curtis Hanson (The Dunwich Horror {1970}, L.A. Confidential {1997}) the movie tells the story of Julie (Kristy McNichol) a young, struggling actress who hits a dog (a white German Shepherd) on the highway one night. Julie takes the dog home with her while she tries to find its owners. The dog protects her from a rapist who breaks into Julie’s house and she develops quite an attachment to the dog. The dog—which is never given a name—gets out one day initially chasing a rabbit. »

Hp Lovecraft: an appreciation

7 February 2011 10:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan looks back at the work of author Hp Lovecraft, the writer behind Guillermo del Toro’s forthcoming At The Mountains Of Madness

In his own lifetime, Howard Philips Lovecraft was a virtual unknown. His stories appeared in pulp magazines such as Weird Tales and Astounding Stories, alongside contemporary genre writers such as Robert E Howard and August Derleth, and wouldn’t be published in book form until long after Lovecraft’s death.

It was only after Hp Lovecraft's passing in 1937 that his work began to be reassessed, and even then his distinctive, verbose prose was scorned by the literary establishment. The critic, Edmund Wilson, infamously dismissed the author's tales as "bad taste and bad art" in 1945.

Gradually, however, Lovecraft's reputation grew, and he's now rightly recognised as one of the 20th century's most important American authors. In 2005, a collection of Lovecraft's stories was collected together for The Library Of America, »
