The Bottom Shelf: Troll 2, Phantasm, The Entity

Nick Aldwinckle Jun 5, 2017

We round up the latest horror-tinged Blu-ray and DVD releases....

So, after a brief hiatus, it turns out a lot’s happened in the few months between these round ups. A snap general election has been called, terror has struck at the heart of Manchester and a scandal approaching Watergate levels has hit the U.S presidency. More importantly, Troll 2 has finally come to UK Netflix and is the cherry on the cake made entirely of a series of kind of wonderful, kind of… not films on DVD and Bluray.

So, 1990’s Troll 2, you may or may not be aware of, is generally regarded as one of the very greatest 'so bad it’s good' movies. There are many worse (The Rollerblade Seven or Gary Oldman little person rom-com Tiptoes come to mind), though it’s difficult to think of many other truly awful movies

Pick of the WeekToni Erdmann

What is it? A professional woman and her oddball father dance around their complicated relationship, both in and out of costumes.

Why buy it? Family dysfunction is a longtime staple in cinema, but no film this year captured it with such humor, warmth, and wisdom as Maren Ade’s third feature. Even at 162 minutes our time with Ines and her oddball father feels far too short as their journey of discovery becomes one we don’t want to see end. There’s an honesty here — yes, even with subtitles — about the way we see ourselves through our loved ones

15 Most Anticipated Upcoming Horror Movies

The Weinstein Company

Before the door slams slut on 2015, hopefully hitting it in the ass on the way out, here’s a prediction: 2016 will be 1992 in different clothes.

Consider the evidence: there’s a new Batman movie, The X Files is back on TV and Clinton is running for President. Also, the horror movies slated for release are mostly sequels and remakes.

1992 gave us such culturally enriching experiences as House IV, Prom Night III: The Last Kiss and the awesome Witchcraft 4: The Virgin Heart, and while 2016’s line-up isn’t quite that bad, it still leaves much to be desired. Among the least desirable titles is a remake of The Blob, from the director of the When A Stranger Calls remake.

Amityville 1992: It’s About Time was the 6th film in the haunted house franchise, and guess what? Not only is another Amityville film due in 2016, but if

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Nest

Ah, cockroaches. They just don’t get much love in the Horror genre. One would think that these lowly creatures, clicking and flitting, scurrying and shuttling from dark to light would be prime fodder for terror terrain. However, up until 1988’s The Nest, there are only a handful of critter flicks starring these grotesque end- of- the- worlders. Concorde Pictures (Roger Corman’s latest company at the time) unleashed this gloriously gruesome roach-a-rama on an unsuspecting public and watched them squirm with delight.

Actually, The Nest only received a limited release by Concorde, but made its coin when it was released on video by MGM later that same year. Reviews were generally positive, with critics seeing it as a good natured update of 1950’s monster movies, of course with new, improved and gnarly special effects. The Nest is, shall we say, a great deal moister than its bug strewn brethren of yore.

‘The Horror Show’ aka House III Blu-ray Review (Scream Factory)

Stars: Lance Henriksen, Brion James, Rita Taggart, Dedee Pfeiffer, Aron Eisenberg, Thom Bray, Lawrence Tierney | Written by Allyn Warner, Leslie Bohem | Directed by James Isaac

If there was one genre that spawned countless knock-offs (some better than the films they were imitating, others not so much) it was the slasher film. Even some films that were touted as the greats amongst the sub-genre would be still hidden in the shadows of the films they were emulating. There’s a waterfall effect to these films that start with Psycho and fall through Black Christmas onto Friday the 13th. But within the sub-genre, a splintering could be found as well, creating a mutated family hierarchy of slasherdom. Every slasher film had to find some sort of way of setting itself apart from the other, by creating some sort of different villain who was unstoppable and creative in ways that kept bodies in seats.

15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels

Odd List Ryan Lambie 6 Nov 2013 - 06:50

From random films with altered names to unrelated storylines, we take a look at 15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels...

The profit-driven nature of filmmaking usually means that, if a movie's a hit, sequels follow. And it's sometimes the case that, particularly in the realm of low-budget sci-fi and horror, those sequels are trotted out in a rush, or don't have anything to do with the film they're following.

This isn't to say that the sequels on this list are necessarily bad - it's a proper mixed bag of the great, the mediocre and the downright awful - but in each instance, these sequels have only vague links to their predecessors, or worse still, they're entirely different films rebranded to fit an existing franchise.  

Our list is by no means definitive - rather, we've chosen a collection of films that we find the most memorable.

Newborn Dead: Modern Horror – A look back

  • Fangoria
Before joining the Fangoria Family, my background was commercial television. Years and years of TV programming and production. And it wasn’t as if I worked at FEARnet but rather at a more mainstream network. I will say that when I did program my network and ran movies such as Children Of The Corn or House IV the ratings would be excellent – a testament to the general love of horror. But most of the time we ran “feel good” Hollywood movies and sometimes the ratings were not as high.

Therefore when I did transition to this wonderful world of horror, I had to get educated and fast. It wasn’t hard given that it has been a few years and I am a natural fan but the amount of movies to which I had to catch up was and remains astounding. However, thank god for Netflix and my own tenacity.
