It would be pointless – not to mention foolish – to judge Caesar And Otto’s Deadly Xmas by the same standards as other films. This is chiefly because if we did we’d have to face up to the fact that this Christmas-themed horror/campfest doesn’t even deserve in the same VHS bargain bins as the films it clumsily imitates. That said, if the only movies people ever enjoyed were the good ones then…well, Netflix wouldn’t exist, for one thing.
With that in mind, I decided to view Caesar And Otto in the spirit in which I hope and pray it was intended: with tongue firmly embedded in cheek. It’s a good thing I did so immediately, as an early scene sees the recent recipient of »

Tribeca Films’ The Demon’S Rook
If you’re a fan of practical and gory, balls to the wall horror, then be ready. The upcoming Tribeca Films’ release (hitting iTunes and VOD September 30th), The Demon’S Rook, is a horror film that lovers of Italian horror, practical effects and just good ol’ splatter-filled carnage can sink their teeth into. A truly independent venture, Director James Sizemore not only directed the film, but also co-wrote, c-produced and stars in the film, showing that he’s a force to be reckoned with, a filmmaker who isn’t afraid to get his hands (and his actors) dirty. Sizemore was nice enough to briefly talk to us about The Demon’S Rook and what’s next on his plate.

Invaders from Mars (1986)
Directed by: Tobe Hooper
The best that I can tell, nostalgia runs on a thirty year cycle. I can speculate that what everybody watches as children, shapes them into adults with a deep seated desire to emulate it or watch it being emulated. A select few make it to a position where they can actually interject that nostalgia into the contemporary mainstream, and satisfy both the fans of the original material, but also put such a spit shine on the old premise that even the youngsters dig it, and have no idea that it’s based on something way older than they are. In the 1980’s we »
The first wave of 88 Films’ Slasher Classics Collection hasn’t even hit stores yet and the company have released details of “wave 2″ – including four worldwide Blu-ray premieres, each debuting with new HD scans from the original materials approved by the directors themselves!
Check out the press release below, as well as the awesome – if temporary – artwork (click to enlarge):
First up is 1984’s Splatter University. Unavailable in the UK since the glory gory days of VHS tapes, this satirical campus-set sickie is one of the bloodiest and barmiest slasher-shockers ever made. Headlining the feisty Forbes Riley as a teacher trying to work out why her classes are featuring increasingly less students, Splatter University picks up the pace with a succession of superb sanguine-packed massacre-moments. A maniacal murder-mystery that is not afraid to crack out the crimson, Splatter University turns up the suspense en route to an outrageous conclusion. From »

The zombie subgenre has ran itself into a wall in the last few years. now, before you Walking Dead fanatics crucify me (we’ve all seen how passionate comments can get when you mention anything regarding those beloved characters), just take a seat and relax and let me explain. When Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead came out, it changed things and for its time, it was scary as hell. When Romero followed that up with Dawn Of The Dead and Day Of The Dead, Fulci hit fans with Zombi, and various other filmmakers put their spin on the idea of the dead coming back to life, it was still a pretty good and growing subgenre of horror that showed a thriving future for the undead. Dan O’Bannon’s Return Of The Living Dead put more of a comedic spin on things, but still…it felt like a »

So yeah, Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings is pretty far from a perfect sequel. Yet, in comparison to the two Syfy sequels, it may as well be likened to the quality of Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn. Read on for the skinny on the Scream Factory's upcoming Blu-ray release!
From the Press Release
They couldn’t leave dead enough alone. On October 28, Scream Factory will release Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings with new bonus features.
When five teenagers unwittingly resurrect a demon in Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, nobody is safe from the creature’s bloody rampage. But this monster is different – inside its demonic frame dwells the soul of a boy murdered years ago. Can the evil creature be killed without destroying the innocent boy trapped within?

Scream Factory is set to unleash their “Collector’s Edition” of the much loved Stan Winston classic, Pumpkinhead on September 9th (review), and if that wasn’t cool enough, the folks at Sf are giving fans of the franchise another reason to celebrate: the October 28th Bluray release of Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings (This time directed by Leatherface director Jeff Burr). Personally, I’m pretty excited about this one, as it’s a pretty good sequel to a film that I absolutely love, and it has a few different angles to it (something sequels should have). We’ve been sent the art/full specs, so obviously we’re going to share them with you fright fanatics. Art/specs after the jump!

Holy hell, look at this you guys. No, really, look at it. This is beautiful. This is like the zombie infographic version of Maria Sibylla Merian’s plant illustrations. It looks ripped from an old anatomy book. Artist Jason Thompson is a bit of a zombie fanatic. When he hears the word zombie, he wants to know more, and not more as in, "Are they from the South?" or "Do they work at the Cdc?" He gets deeper into things.
"As a horror fan, when I hear that something has 'zombies,' I want to know: are they fast zombies or slow zombies? Viral zombies, supernatural zombies, or alien-invasion zombies? Headshot zombies, living zombies, or writhing-severed-limbs zombies? Crazed, unreasonable people who are alive but act 'zombie-like'? Voodoo zombies, cannibal zombies or rotting Etruscan curse zombies?"
For Thompson, zombie isn’t a species of monster, »

In this day of remakes and re-imaginings, this little anomaly would be anything but unusual. However in 1995, this was a strange curiosity, that was brought into existence for no particular reason that I know of. It was a made as TV movie for the Sci Fi Channel (Yep, that’s the old school spelling back in ’95) when it was still trying to find its niche. Then only three years old, the Sci Fi Channel was more than likely showing reruns of cult favorite tv shows, and had not tapped into the fertile ground of the nouveau B movie that it is now famous for. »
