If you missed our previous Diy Monster Makers features on the amazing hand-sculpted collectibles from Freakland Shop, it's high time you got onboard with their latest creations... like this awesome polyresin replica depicting one of the most notorious scenes from Lucio Fulci's gore epic City of the Living Dead, known stateside as The Gates of Hell. That's right, we're talking about the infamous power-drill-through-the-head death of poor “Bob” (Giovanni Lombardo Radice, a.k.a. John Morghen) at the hands of his lady-friend's vengeful father... here's that scene, if you need a refresher: The hand-sculpted, hand-painted vinyl busts (roughly 5” tall) are limited to a run of 500 numbered units, each accompanied by one of two styles of movie cards, autographed by Morghen himself. Visit Freakland Shop for ordering info, and be sure to check out our previous feature to see more of their excellent horror replicas. »

From the Press Release

Co-directed by Mickael Abbate (Creeps), Domiziano Cristopharo (House of Flesh Mannequins, Red Krokodil, Doll Syndrome), and Tiziano Martella (Legio Xiii), Phantasmagoria is a vibrating tribute to William Castle’s cinema but also introduces original visions of fear in three »

As production has wrapped up on the upcoming Franco-Italo horror anthology Phantasmagoria we have been given three exclusive images to share with you. The first is of Italian actor Venantino Venantini, from such films as City of the Living Dead and Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye. The second is a pair of sexy heels and the third is of newcomer Maya Dolan. I find myself constantly drawn to the third image for some reason. Must be the architecture of that villa in the background. Yeah. Must be. February 24, 2014 - Take a look at Venantino Venantini (City of the Living Dead, Ladyhawke, Contraband, Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye) as « GrandPa » in the upcoming sensation of horror from France and Italy Phantasmagoria,...

Those "Supernatural" boys sure know how to twist the knife when it comes to making heartbreaking statements/confessions/apologies, don't they? They never fail when it comes to punching us fans in the gut. And Sam took the cake with his speech in the final moments of Tuesday (Jan. 28) night's Garth-centric episode, "Sharp Teeth."
Of course, the episode started off optimistically, because the Winchester brothers were finally back together (much to Dean's chagrin) to figure out what the heck was going on with Awol hunter Garth (returning fan favorite DJ Qualls). What they found raised some interesting and important questions that "Supernatural" has long struggled to answer, and while "Sharp Teeth" answered questions about Garth, it didn't deal with the larger picture.
We found out that Garth has been Mia because while on a hunt, he got bitten by a werewolf. As a hunter, he knew the only cure was death, »
Scream Factory, ever busy preserving horror’s cinematic legacy, recently released another pair of cult classics on Blu-ray, The Beast Within and Crawlspace. Today, we have another double review taking a look back at these two often overlooked genre films.
The Beast Within: The Beast Within is the first theatrical screenplay by now genre vet, Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’s Play). It follows a sickly 17-year-old named Michael MacCleary (Paul Clemens), who, as it turns out, has the misfortune of being the offspring of a violent encounter between a murderous swamp beast and his mother (Bibi Besch). And as Michael begins awkwardly transitioning into a man on the eve of his 18th birthday, he’s also forced to deal with the terrifying evil growing inside that he must overcome. Because, if he doesn’t face his true nature, Michael may forever be lost to his swamp beast lurking »

In my slightly sordid past, I have been dared to do a number of things including drink a pint of scotch in just an hour, dance on stage with a male stripper named Turbo, and also watch Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox back-to-back before I knew anything about them. Out of all of these tasks, the cannibal films were the hardest to get through and resulted in more nausea than the scotch. In short, I have a thing about animals. I can watch the most extreme horror films where people are the victims. But show me a slightly sad puppy or a mildly inconvenienced raccoon, and I’m disturbed for the remainder of the day. Why? Animals aren’t acting, and in the case of these classic cannibal films, the animal deaths are all real. That said, I have an odd appreciation for these films simply for attempting to push the envelope of decency. »

Austrian director Marvin Kren (Rammbock) is currently filming his entry for upcoming horror anthology The ABCs of Death 2, which means it's a good time to check out some of his early work. The Station (known as Blood Glacier over here) is a German language horror movie reminiscent of John Carpenter's The Thing, heading to U.K. DVD on January 27, 2014. Marvin Kren broke into the international horror circuit in 2011 with his zombie feature Rammbock, and The Station looks like it could be another entertaining diversion for horror movie enthusiasts. Beautiful cinematography and a good use of special effects suggest that The Station could be worth a punt. Check out the trailer below. Synopsis: The gates of hell are made of ice in this tense horror thriller paying homage to The Thing and Assault on Precinct 13. Four technicians and scientists at an alpine research station discover a glacier of blood high in the mountains. »
For years the world had feared the coming of the year 2012. Mainly because the Mayans decided to stop updating their calendar. The result of all that hoopla? A hilarious disaster porn comedy starring John Cusack. This, however... this is something to be taken far more seriously.
Those of you out there with Apple products should be more than familiar with Siri by now. We've all seen the commercials with Samuel L. Jackson asking his iPhone the weather or to make reservations for him at a restaurant, but did you know that Siri can actually predict the darkest day the human race will ever know?
Try asking Siri, "What is July 27th, 2014?" She will cheerfully respond, "It's Sunday, July 27, 2014 (Opening Gates of Hades)."
That's right, kids! The Gates of Hell (which were recently "discovered" in Turkey back in March of 2013(!)) will be opening in just a few months! Guess Big Red »
