It’s worth noting that several great titles not included on this list are making their way to Netflix during October that would also make for great Scary Movie Month additions, including Cult of Chucky on 10/3, Raw on 10/4, and the Stephen King adaptation 1922 on 10/20, with season 2 of Stranger Things kicking off on 10/27.

Happy viewing, everyone, and look for more Halloween-related articles coming your way all month long,

Review: ‘The Void’ is a Surreal Hybrid of ‘The Thing’ and ‘Hellraiser’

I was recently comparing directorial culture today with that of the 80s and 90s, referencing how new technology has allowed a disintegration of the old school “pay your dues” mentality. Forty years ago you had artists working their way up under the tutelage of established directors through the more niche technical departments. See James Cameron (matte painter on Escape from New York) and Joe Johnston (visual effects on Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark) as examples. I’m not saying this type of mailroom intern to studio executive evolution isn’t still possible or relevant, just that young filmmakers can currently make a calling card film like the $750,000 budgeted Safety Not Guaranteed and find themselves helming a $150 million blockbuster like Jurassic World in only three years.

Is that talent? Luck? A bit of both, surely. But I still admire the idea of learning before jumping, earning the big

Blu-ray Review: Arrow Video’s Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy

  • DailyDead
Arrow Video wants fans to experience the pleasures contained within their recent The Scarlet Box limited edition set featuring the first three Hellraiser films in HD as well as a bounty of special features that will keep you busy for hours on end. If you’ve been looking to add Clive Barker’s influential and unforgettable original Hellraiser film—or its first two sequels—to your home media collections, you can’t go wrong with The Scarlet Box.

Some things have to be endured. That’s what makes the pleasure so sweet.

Barker’s Hellraiser, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, pushed the boundaries of cinematic horror in ways audiences had never experienced before. Based on his novella The Hellbound Heart, Barker’s feature film adaptation introduces us to Frank Cotton (Sean Chapman), whose soul is transported to a hellish dimension after acquiring a mysterious puzzle box that summons demonic forces.

  • DailyDead

DVD Review – Elstree 1976 (2015)

Elstree 1976, 2015.

Directed by Jon Spiral.

Featuring David Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch, Paul Blake, Pam Rose, Derek Lyons, Anthony Forrest and Laurie Goode.


Documentary focusing on the bit-part actors and extras from the original 1977 Star Wars movie.

Elstree 1976 is not just a documentary about Star Wars; in fact, it’s not even really about Star Wars at all but a vindication that, in these enlightened times, the culture that has erected itself from George Lucas’ vision has become bigger than the source itself. Think about it – what other movie franchise could boast about or even justify inspiring a documentary focusing on the background players, some of whom didn’t even have a line or, in one case at least, his character didn’t even appear in the final cut of the movie? Bond? Harry Potter? The Lord of the Rings? Don’t think so.

But, as with all documentaries,

It Will Tear Your Soul Apart

Stephen King was once quoted as saying: “I have seen the future of horror… his name is Clive Barker.” That future became reality when, in 1987, Barker unleashed his directorial debut Hellraiser – launching a hit franchise and creating an instant horror icon in the formidable figure of Pinhead.

Barker’s original Hellraiser, based on his novella The Hellbound Heart, follows Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) as she comes head-to-head with the Cenobites – demonic beings from another realm who are intent on reclaiming

Halloween 2016: 31 Movies to Stream on Netflix this October to Get You into the Spirit of the Season

  • DailyDead
One of my favorite things to do every October is to binge-watch as many horror and sci-fi movies as possible (something I can guarantee I’m not alone in doing), and for those of you with Netflix, the streaming service can be an invaluable resource this time of year, although I do remember a time when there were a lot more options than we get these days.

That being said, I culled Netflix's entire library and put together 31 great movie choices that will undoubtedly get you into a macabre mood to celebrate Halloween this year. Take a look at our Netflix list below, featuring one film for each day of October, and get ready to enjoy an entire month’s worth of fright-filled fun, courtesy of Netflix’s streaming database.

Interview: Legendary SFX Artist Mark Coulier Talks Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

In 1813, renowned writer Jane Austen published a book called Pride and Prejudice, which tells the story of the Bennet sisters, who are gussied up and married off to wealthy suitors, one by one. The only sister who seems to question this system is Elizabeth, the rebellious member of the family, who feels strong disdain for the system that treats her more like property than a proper citizen. In 2009, author Seth Grahame-Smith put a new twist on the old tale by creating a parody novel called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which loosely follows the same basic outline, but adds an entirely different obstacle to the tale: the living dead.

In Grahame-Smith’s story, the girls are not only fighting for the right to be married into regal families, but also battling for their lives on a daily basis. An outbreak has occurred within these humble streets, and now flesh-eating zombies

What if the Surgeon Scene From ‘Hellbound: Hellraiser II’ Was Completed? (Watch)
Myth became reality last week when us hardcore horror fans were gifted with the long-rumoured deleted “Surgeon Scene” from Tony Randel’s awesome Hellbound: Hellraiser II.

The Hellraiser II Surgeon Scene and the Weird Mystique of “Lost” Footage

Shock examines the legendary cut “surgery” scene from Hellraiser II and other mythical excised horror scenes. Released in 1988, Hellbound: Hellraiser II managed to be that rarest form of sequel; one that remained faithful to the original while managing to expand on its premise and themes organically. The first two installments merge pretty seamlessly to…

AfterDeath, 2015.

Starring Miranda Raison, Sam Keeley, Daniella Kertesz, Elarica Gallacher and Lorna Nickson Brown.


Five strangers wake up on a beach in some sort of netherworld and have to figure out why they are there and what is the mysterious creature that is tormenting them.

Another entry in the FrightFest Presents collection, AfterDeath is a British chiller that begins with a young woman named Robyn (Miranda Raison) waking up on a beach at night. Trying to escape some weird explosions on the beach she runs to a nearby beach house where she interrupts the permanently horny Seb (Sam Keeley) having a threesome with Patricia (Elarica Gallacher) and Livvy (Lorna Nickson Brown) as a smoky spirit flies around the room. Also in the house is Onie (Daniella Kertesz), who keeps disappearing and reappearing randomly, and Robyn soon comes to the realisation that they are

Glasgow Frightfest: ‘Mindless’ Review (Short)

Stars: Nicholas Vince, Kate Danbury, Eloise Daye, Fern Bostock | Written and Directed by Katie Bonham

If there’s one thing that makes UK horror film festival Frightfest stand head and shoulders above others of its ilk, it’s the amount of attendees that have gone on to create their own horror movies – be they features or shorts – some of which, like last summer’s Banjo, have gone on to play the festival itself – inpsiring more Frightfesters in some kind of horrific viscious circle!

One such Frightfest attendee turned filmmaker is Katie Bonham, whose fourth horror short, Mindless, starring Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II and Nightbreed), has its world premiere at this years Frightfest Glasgow. Though to be fair, Bonham’s no stranger to Glasgow – this is the second year in a row she has screened a short a Frightfest Glasgow; with her previous short film, The Paper Round, shown last year.

Katie Bonham’s new short ‘Mindless’ to premiere at Glasgow Frightfest

Katie Bonham’s fourth horror short, Mindless, starring Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II and Nightbreed), has been selected to screen its world premiere at this years Film 4′s Frightfest Glasgow at 3:40pm on 26th February in the Glasgow Film Theatre. Mindless tells the story of Peter (Nicholas Vince) – a senile, middle-aged man whose house is mysteriously torn apart day after day. Is Peter a risk to himself or is something more sinister about to be unleashed?

This is the second year in a row Bonham has held a world premiere at Film 4′s Fightfest Glasgow; with her previous short film, The Paper Round, screened to great success as one of only two shorts selected in 2015.

Mindless was mostly self-funded by Bonham and shot over 2 days on location in Kent, England with a crew of eight and cast of four. Joining forces, for the first time, with prolific producer,

Blu-ray Review – Hellraiser – The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy

Hellraiser – The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy

Directed by Clive Barker/Tony Randel/Anthony Hickox.

Starring Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins, Doug Bradley , Ashley Laurence, Nicholas Vince, Simon Bamford, Barbie Wilde, Sean Chapman, Kenneth Cranham, Oliver Parker, Terry Farrell, Kevin Bernhardt, Oliver Smith, Grace Kirby, Paula Marshall, Ken Carpenter, Imogen Boorman, William Hope.


The first three films in the Hellraiser series are given a new lease of life in an expansive Blu-ray box set, courtesy of Arrow Video.

To say that this release has been highly anticipated in the horror community since it was first announced several months ago would be something of an understatement; in fact, it would be a total lie as once it was announced that Clive Barker’s classic Hellraiser and its two immediate sequels were getting a 2K restoration then October 26th 2015 became judgement day for anybody with an appreciation for Barker’s masterpiece and the mythology it spawned,
