‘Tales From the Crypt’ Volume 1 The early days of the horror icon crawl back from the grave

22 June 2015 7:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Few comics sit at the intersection of “fan beloved,” “industry defining,” and “absolutely impossible to acquire” the way the EC Comics library does. For a while they almost felt like Comics’ very own Holy Grail. On one hand, you’ve got the Tales From The Crypt brand itself, which has left an indelible mark on pop culture with films, cable TV series, Saturday morning cartoons, and a line of revival graphic novels from Papercutz — a proud legacy, to be sure. But on the other hand, you enter into the more nebulous region of pop cultural osmosis, and it’s there that the legend of Bill Gaines’ little comic line that could grows to gargantuan levels. The baby boomers that ate his ghoulish “mags” up in the early ‘50s eventually grew into the genre fiction movers and shakers of the ‘70s and ‘80s — from cult directors like George Romero and Joe Dante, »

Listen Up Screwheads! Scream Factory Announces Army Of Darkness Among Their Fall Releases

16 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Shout! Factory's horror imprint Scream Factory just surprised American horror fans with the announcement that they'd be handling a Fall collector's edition release of Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness. This comes immediately after their announcements of Blu-ray releases of the two Tales From the Crypt spin off films, Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood. Those two are certainly great news, but Army of Darkness is certainly the winner today.Army of Darkness is one of those films that has been released and re-released over and over again by Starz / Anchor Bay and has proved to be a cash cow for that company. However, no single release of the film in the Us has ever been definitive. There are at least three different cuts of the...

Scream Factory Set To Bring You Brand New Collector’s Edition Blurays of Demon Knight, Bordello Of Blood and Army Of Darkness

15 June 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Let’s file this one under, “Holy Shit”. Earlier today, genre releasing darlings Scream Factory announced that the much requested Tales From The Crypt films, Ernest Dickerson’s 1995 film Demon Knight and 1996’s Gilbert Adler-helmed Bordello Of Blood were finally getting the Collector’s Edition Bluray treatment, leaving horror fans’ mouths wide open and ending in a group clap that rivals the most epic of announcements. The news of those two films each getting the deluxe treatment separately, and not in a double feature release is awesome, as it looks like Sf is going to go all out with each film.

Now adding to the excitement is out of nowhere announcement that will only add to the excitement: they’re also getting ready to put out a brand new Collector’s Edition Bluray of Sam Raimi’s Army Of Darkness, the third film in the Evil Dead series. So »

9 June 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Filmmaker Ben Rock (Alien Raiders, The Blair Witch Project) recently released a brand new webseries entitled 20 Seconds to Live which, as you may have guessed from the title, will feature someone meeting their untimely demise but in some truly unique ways. The first episode is already available here and the next installment of 20 Seconds to Live arrives this Friday.

Daily Dead chatted briefly with Rock about the series, teaming up with Adam Green and ArieScope for their release, and what fans can expect from future episodes.

Let’s start at the beginning—how did the series come about?

Ben Rock: Bob DeRosa is an outrageously accomplished writer for film and television, and he and I also do a lot of fun small theater projects together, mostly at Sacred Fools (where you came to see Baal five years ago and Taste last year). And when we put up one of »

‘Blood & Gourd: Issue 1′ Review

22 May 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Jenz K. Lund, D.H. Shultis | Art by Dave Acosta | Pencils by Juan Albarran | Published by Dead Peasant

Humour and horror do not always make the best bedfellows, and it takes some skill to combine those two themes into something that works, be it up on the big screen or within the pages of a comic book. It is to the credit of writers Lund and Shultis that not only do they make it work here in issue one of Blood & Gourd, they make quite a few other attempts look sorrowful by comparison.

Plot-wise, Blood & Gourd will be more familiar to the American reader than elsewhere; Americans love all things Halloween, and seemingly all things pumpkin related, and they won’t be disappointed here. Without giving too much away, we have a mix of evil chemical corporations, people-eating pumpkins, innocent small town folk and a Halloween that the »

Practical Effects Front and Center in Hilariously Entertaining Proof of Concept Short Evil Nature

17 May 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It takes a lot of impress me. Not because I’m uptight or a jerk, but because at this point, what haven’t we seen? With that being said/asked, after viewing Darin Beckstead’s proof of concept short, Evil Nature, I can honestly say: this is one to not only look out for, but a teaser to something that has such an authentic feeling of nostalgia, in the best of ways. Featuring work by master (pun intended) Todd Masters (Hemlock Grove, Swamp Thing 2, Slither) and produced by Tales From The Crypt producer Gilbert Adler, Evil Nature features one hellish pumpkin terrorizing an anxiety-filled everyday man and also features some awesome fx, courtesy of Masters and Chronicles Of Riddick‘s Walt Jones (via Taut Films).

The proof of concept short is being used to give a glimpse into a very unique and entertaining way to approach creature design, and offers horror fans an original, »

Watch Now: Darin Beckstead’s Evil Nature Proof of Concept & Exclusive Q&A

21 April 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Every October, we stab them with knives, killing their regular appearances and bringing them to new life with sharpened teeth, ghoulish gazes, and impossibly wide, sinister smiles. We make pumpkins into little monsters every year, but what if they came to life on their own... and wanted revenge for the years of jack-o'-lantern carvings, discarded guts, and baked seeds? Darin Beckstead's Proof of Concept for his planned feature film, Evil Nature, expertly explores this unnerving "what if?" with ample amounts of holiday humor and creature-centric horror. We've been provided with the fun and frightening Evil Nature Proof of Concept to share with Daily Dead readers, along with an exclusive Q&A with director Darin Beckstead.

Wild Tales – The Review

19 March 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a solution for the indecisive moviegoers. Not sure if you’re in the mood for a drama or comedy or a thriller? Well, how about an anthology? It’s like a good short story collection,  or you could call this type of flick a movie buffet or a cinema smorgasbord. Most of the time, these films, in their earlier incarnations, center around a setting (Grand Hotel), a gathering (Dinner At Eight), or an incident (the big cash winners in If I Had A Million). There are animation anthologies (the most famous may be Fantasia or Allegro Non Tropo) and musicals (Invitation To The Dance). The most prolific type may be those in the horror genre, beginning with 1945’s landmark Dead Of Night. In the 60’s and 70’s, Amicus Studios made their mark with Torture Garden and The House That Dripped Blood along with the EC Comics-inspired Tales From The Crypt »

Frightfest Glasgow 2015: ‘Clown’ Review

8 March 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Andy Powers, Laura Allen, Peter Stormare, Elizabeth Whitmere, Christian Distefano, Chuck Shamata, Matthew Stefiuk, Sarah Scheffer, Allen Altman | Written by Christopher D. Ford, Jon Watts | Directed by Jon Watts

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Clown, no doubt because purveyor of gore and grue, Eli Roth (Hostel), has his name attached to the film. So forgive me if I came away from the movie feeling a little under-whelmed. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed what I saw but I couldn’t help but feel it needed something more… After all, when you break the story down, it’s not much more than a Tales From the Crypt/Tales From the Darkside-style morality play; and those two TV shows told their stories in less than thirty minutes.
