  • DailyDead
Since I showed some love to Netflix yesterday, I thought it was only proper today to put the spotlight on Amazon Prime and their vast streaming library that features hundreds of genre titles.

There’s no denying that it can be an overwhelming experience to try and navigate your way through over 200 different pages of movies, so I went ahead and put together a list of 31 different films that should help you get into the Halloween spirit throughout the month of October. And since variety is the spice of life, I tried to give you guys an assortment of different sub-genres, so that you should be able to find something to fit any horror-loving mood! Happy October and happy viewing, everyone!

Madman

At a summer camp for youths, a cocky pre-teen calls out the name of mass serial killer "Madman Marz". Suddenly, counselors are being maimed and slaughtered in various

I Bury The Living / The Screaming Skull

I Bury The Living

Blu-ray

Shout! Factory

1958 / B&W / 1:85 / / 76 min. / Street Date April 25, 2017

Starring: Richard Boone, Theodore Bikel.

Cinematography: Frederick Gately

Film Editor: Frank Sullivan

Written by Louis Garfinkle

Produced by Albert Band, Louis Garfinkle

Directed by Albert Band

I Bury the Living implicates us in a primal childhood thought-crime… what if you stepped on a crack and really did break your mother’s back? What if simply wishing someone dead made it so? Guilt, pure and simple, gives this off–kilter 50’s chiller its lasting power.

The film boasts an off–kilter leading man as well with the crater-faced Richard Boone as Robert Kraft, a small town business man railroaded into managing the family run cemetery. To make matters worse, the perennially gloomy Kraft, already skittish about his disconcerting new position, is saddled with a decrepit, unnaturally chilly workplace watched over by an unnerving bit of decoration, an

They Came from the Crapper: 5 Horror Movies to Watch On World Toilet Day

Kieran Fisher takes a look at some entertaining films about killer toilets and faecal matter….

First and foremost, World Toilet Day should be commended for raising awareness of and inspiring people to tackle the global sanitation crisis – a topic often neglected and overlooked in the grand scheme of things, but one which poses serious health risks and endangers the lives of 2.4 billion people across the world who are struggling because they don’t have access to a clean toilet. It’s a serious issue, and – without sounding preachy – one that world governing bodies and health organisations should unite to resolve. Therefore, the lighthearted and downright silly nature of this isn’t meant as a detraction from the noble cause at hand this day pertains to. That said, any day with toilet associations is as good as any to talk about poop monsters, homicidal lavatories and other horrors that’ll make

Five of the Most Outrageous 80’s Monster Movies

  • SoundOnSight
The 1980’s were inarguably a “golden era” for the subgenre of monster horror flicks. This decade saw a variety of brave experiments on the silver screen involving ghoulies and ghosts, as well as some amazing plotlines. Here are five films from the era that succeeded at turning the truly bizarre into some bloody good entertainment.

5. Deadly Spawn

Deadly Spawn is a 1983 space-monster film shot on a budget of merely $25,000. In light of that low low number, the distinguishing horror fan is willing to look past instances in which a fishing line for controlling the monsters is visible. The premise is simple: a meteor carrying a space-slug crashes to Earth. The slug immediately eats two humans before finding a dark basement where it can multiply. The movie takes off when a trio of geeky horror fans discover the slug living in their basement, and come up with a plan to stop

'Taken 3', 'Everly' & 'Cake' Lead This Week's New DVD and Blu-ray Releases

Taken 3 Easily one of the worst movies of 2015 is coming home to DVD and Blu-ray this weekend. To quote my review, "No one cared. No one. Neeson cashed the check and good on him for that. If they want to continue making these things they better pay you."

Cake Jennifer Aniston got a lot of attention for not wearing any makeup in this movie. It almost earned her an Oscar nomination, now, you get to see what all the fuss was about. I personally never ended up seeing this movie. I just couldn't muster the energy or want to watch it. Here's the plot if you so desire: Jennifer Aniston plays Claire Bennett, who initiates a dubious relationship with a widower (Worthington) while confronting fantastical hallucinations of his dead wife (Kendrick). With her feisty housekeeper and caretaker (Barraza) ever at her side, Claire searches for human connection and self-forgiveness in this tale of redemption.

Bluray Review: Ghoulies/Ghoulies II

Scream Factory brings the toilet scare of many children who grew up in the ’80s back, with their new Bluray double feature release of the Ghoulies/Ghoulies II, and the big question of how it stacks up against previous Sf releases can now be answered: it does quite well. The small creature-filled film and its sequel are both a lot of silly fun, and Scream Factory does an excellent job giving each film the HD treatment, as well as providing some entertaining and insightful special features sure to please the most die hard fans of the series.

Ghoulies (1984)

Beginning a whole series, the first Ghoulies film is quite an interesting one, with a lot of it having to do with creatures accidentally unleashed in a mansion. While the later films in the series set the monsters loose in various locations and situations, most of this film puts the emphasis on sorcery and witchcraft,

Blu-ray Review: Ghoulies / Ghoulies II

  • DailyDead
Though it’s often remembered as one of the many Gremlins rip-offs of the ‘80s, Ghoulies has its origins in 1983 (or a year before Gremlins hit screens), when producer Charles Band and creature effects guru Stan Winston dreamed up a film called Beasties about a bunch of small creatures wreaking havoc on a group of young people. It underwent some changes on the way to the screen: rather than Band directing as originally planned, the film would be helmed by actor Luca Bercovici, who had previously worked for Band on 1982’s Parasite. Stan Winston would not design the creatures, either; those duties fell to John Carl Buechler. And despite what its title might suggest, there wouldn’t end up being very many ghoulies in Ghoulies.

Instead, the 1984 film focuses mainly on a man (Peter Liapis) who inherits a mansion from his father (rocker Richard Des Barres) and ends up conjuring

Watch Your Toilets! Scream Factory Sending Ghoulies/Ghoulies II To Your Bluray Players This April!

In the words of the great Samuel L. Jackson in Jurassic Park, “Hold onto your butts!“. Scream Factory previously announced that they were gearing up to release a one-two punch double feature of the always fun (and very traumatizing to my childhood) first two films in the Ghoulies series, Ghoulies and Ghoulies II this April 21st, in a brand new double feature Bluray debut. Personally, I love the series, and though it didn’t help my parents getting me to want to sit on the toilet much as a kid, there were plenty of trips to my local video store to pick both of these gems up.

The gang at Scream Factory have put together a good amount of brand new special features as well for this release, even interviews with executive producer Charles Band (who just happened to also direct one of my ten favorite films of all time,

17 moments of movie terror in the bathroom

  • Den of Geek
From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...

Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.

The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”

Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and
