There have been so many movies called The Caretakers that it's really easy to get confused which one is actually which. However, there's something that this latest one has that truly sets it apart from the pack as it stars Bill Johnson, who gave a much beloved performance as Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

In college, I remember taking a class in which the professor showed a public service announcement that warned young adults about date-rape. The overall message—like in any stranger-danger warning—was that the effects of the incident don’t end with the morning-after guilt and that there is a fair chance that it could have been prevented all together.
It could be easily said that Contracted (2013) is like an hour and a half-long PSA, but it digs so much deeper than that. It reveals the daily self-consciousness and indignity endured by many women and the great lengths to which they are willing to go in order to achieve love and acceptance.
Written and directed by Eric England (Madison County), Contracted tells the story of Samantha, a young woman uncertain of her sexuality and desperate to rekindle her relationship with her girlfriend Nikki. While at a friend’s party, »
Stretch, L.G., Left, Leatherface, Drayton, Grandpa and Chop Top have all be realized in a Manga-style comic that was brought to my attention this week. Thanks to our pal Jacob for tossing a Imgur link our way to a handful of pages to a Manga inspired by Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2. Apparently, these are samplings from a "doujin artbook" by Rei Hiroe that have been lurking on the Internet. I've never seen them before, but I love the character mock-ups.

Kim Henkel, writer of the classic horror The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and writer/director of its third sequel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (although the less said about that the better), returns to the horror genre with Butcher Boys, his first feature in almost twenty years.
In 1729 Jonathan Swift published A Modest Proposal, a satirical tome in which he suggested Ireland offer up their children as food, using cannibalism as a metaphor for the exploitation of the poor by the rich. Well jump to 2014 and Butcher Boys takes this metaphorical concept and turns it into filmic terror as a birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring a group of friends face to face with the macabre »

The final film in the trilogy, Hatchet 3 loses the series’ director, Adam Green, replacing him with Bj McDonnell, who has previously carved out a career as cam/steadicam operator on a ton of movies – including one of my all-time favourite flicks, How to Rob a Bank. However all is not lost as Green is still on board as the films guiding light and scriptwriter for this tale which picks up immediately where the second film left off.
In Hatchet 3 our heroine Marybeth (Harris) has finally “killed” Victor Crowley (Hodder) – or so she thinks. When she shows up at the police station covered in blood the sheriff (Galligan) doesn’t believe her story and locks her up while he sends a search and recovery »

Woodhaven Production Company and Chad A. Verdi Productions have worked with some of the biggest names in horror, and now they are bringing in two more genre legends to star in their upcoming film Almost Mercy, written and directed by Tom DeNucci.

There’s something special about spotting that unforgettable seductress who strolls across the screen and completely ignites the hormonal interest of the viewer. You’ve seen her...
And chances are you’ve sought out more of her work, paused the film when the gratuitous nude shot arrives, and hell, maybe even tracked down a poster, just to be as close as possible, for as long as possible.
Hey, we’re guys (ladies, this article may not completely appeal to you; my advance warning, in case the title didn’t deter you). We’re drawn to lovely ladies. Even vile, evil ladies. Looks can and have killed. Here’s a little proof.
Species (1995) - Natasha Henstridge: Tall, blonde, well-endowed with presence that could intimidate George Clooney, Natasha Henstridge turned the heads of the male populace in 1995 as she tackled the character of moody alien/femme fatale, Sil/Eve in the underrated sci-fi/horror hybrid Species. »
