Director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly are back with Gothic noir The Black Gloves, a 1940s-set chiller featuring the Owlman, the iconic villain and viral sensation from their acclaimed debut feature Lord of Tears.

A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Miskatonic: 30 Years of Fear with Re-animator

1985. Horror was going through a sea change on the film front, as slashers were shown the door and creature features became the cool kids on campus again. People lined up to see vampires (Fright Night) and werewolves (Silver Bullet) and zombies (Day of the Dead), oh my—but my favorite subgenre, the Mad Scientist, came roaring back to life with director Stuart Gordon’s (From Beyond, Dagon) manic masterpiece debut, Re-Animator.

Released in October, Re-Animator proved once again that when properly executed, horror and humor are delightful bedfellows, co-conspirators with the noblest of intentions: to entertain. Horror, while certainly not easy to do well (scroll through Netflix on any given day), has it made in the shade compared to comedy. Humor is more subjective, and what rubs me as funny may chafe you as stupid or insipid. Most people will agree that The Exorcist is terrifying, but not everyone likes

Bringing Hp Lovecraft to the big screen

Just in time for Halloween, James considers the weird tales of Hp Lovecraft, and the ones that could make great films...

(Warning: this article contains spoilers for several H.P. Lovecraft stories and also contains material that may upset the balance of your sanity. "Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li!")

Dear readers, I am writing this under an appreciable mental strain since by tonight I may be no more. The end is near and soon will come the oblivion which is my only refuge from the unnamed and unnameable. Hallowmas has arrived and I hear the howling from that awful reef, the horrible croaking voices and the slippery bodies lumbering against the door.

The nauseous fishy odour seems to have mounted suddenly, the shrill whippoorwills have burst into a kind of pandaemoniac cachinnation which fills the countryside and I am certain that everything is coming to a head. Or, at least, a gibbering mockery of a head.

Re-Animating a Master of Horror: Stuart Gordon and the Art of Re-Animation

The heat thuds in the chest, the pulse races and the blood surges. We are not in the midst of a suspenseful and terrifying horror film where our emotions are being manipulated by the puppeteer filmmaker. We are preparing to speak with Master of Horror Stuart Gordon whose 1985 masterpiece Re-Animator has received an all new limited home entertainment release. Whilst Gordon has left the world of horror cinema to return to the theatre, he took us back into the past, to trace the journey of a child who grew into a master of genre.

Not far removed from any discussion involving Stuart Gordon is the King of the B’s Roger Corman. The former is to H.P. Lovecraft what the latter was to Edgar Allan Poe. During the span of just four short years beginning in 1960 with The Fall of the House of Usher, Corman directed his eight film Poe cycle,
