In true 80’s nostalgia fashion, I’ve been hyped about seeing this film since I’ve seen the poster. Yes, a poster sold me on the movie – just the way I grew up watching movies in the late 80’s & 90’s. Anchor Bay just announced the release date for the 80’s slasher homage, Lost After Dark.
If you thought the 80s were dead — think again! On September 1st, Anchor Bay Entertainment goes full 80s retro with Lost After Dark, a loving but harrowing homage that takes audiences back to the decade when slashers ruled the silver screen. The exciting directing debut of writer/director Ian Kessner, Lost After Dark proudly features visceral, old-school prosthetic “kills,” and pop songs pulsing to an electronic beat. So thrown on a pair of acid wash jeans and go full-on tubular with Lost After Dark! Srp is $26.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $22.98 for the DVD, with pre-book on July 31st. »

Scream Factory gives a double dose of telekinetic angst and revenge with the double feature of 2002’s Bryan Fuller (TV’s Hannibal)-scripted TV adaption of Carrie and 1999’s The Rage: Carrie 2, which is a sequel to the original 1976 film version of Stephen King’s novel. Done scratching your heads in confusion? We took a look at the double feature, and the big question of whether or not to pass or purchase this one might be on your mind, but unless you’re a hardcore fan of one or both films, you might want to opt out of this one in exchange for Sf’s Class Of 1984 or The Babadook releases (also coming out on 4/14)
Taking more of a cue from the source material of King’s novel and not the De Palma film, 2002’s Carrie suffers a bit from a few different things, most notably the »

After a bombardment of terrible sequels and remakes, the horror movie genre is undergoing something of a renaissance of late with the excellent Babadook and this week's It Follows leading the charge.
Both films are driven by strong performances from up-and-coming female stars (Essie Davis and Maika Monroe), which brings to mind a classic horror movie trope: the Final Girl. Most prevalent in slasher films, the Final Girl is the last character standing who confronts a killer/ghost/demon and lives to tell the tale.
Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...
Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface. »
Ah, love is in the air my fiends, and what says “I love you” more than spendin’ the day readin’ my revoltin’ reviews and ignoring your better half?
When the opportunity came to check out a flick entitled Crazy Bitches, I scratched my head in bewilderment. I simply couldn’t believe that someone would make an entire feature film based on my ex-ghoulfriends (why yes, I did utilize the Official Daniel Xiii Easy Joke Generator 2,000™ for that zinger!). Anyway, let’s sharpen our claws and dig inta this f’er and see how crazy these bitches really are!
Well, first things first: these ladies aren’t really all that crazy. A bit over-sexed and vain for sure, but for the most part not »
Jamie Lee Curtis may have starred in "Halloween: Resurrection," but even she can't defend it.toofab's Rachel Hoffman caught up with the classic scream queen at a press junket for her upcoming movie, "Spare Parts," where the actress finally revealed how she really felt about the end of her "Halloween" run.Quick refresher: Curtis launched her movie career with the original "Halloween" in 1978. Twenty years after the original, the veteran actress played Laurie Strode once again in "Halloween H20" -- before being unceremoniously killed off in "Resurrection.""'Halloween: Resurrection was a joke,'" she admitted when we asked about her horror legacy. "The only way I could do 'Halloween: H20' was to agree to come back in a next movie ... because of the way 'Halloween: H20' ends.""I would never have been in that movie," she added, before saying that her character had to die in order to get closure. »
