July 8th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Bloody Birthday, Lake Placid, The Raid 2

7 July 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week’s Blu-ray and DVD releases are an eclectic bunch, to say the least. Not only is Steve Miner’s criminally overlooked horror/comedy creature feature Lake Placid swimming its way onto Blu-ray, but Severin Films is also releasing a trio of controversial cult classics- Bloody Moon, The Baby and Bloody Birthday-all  in high definition for the first time ever.

The Time Machine is also getting a Blu-ray release this week, along with Gareth Evans’ stunning action masterpiece The Raid 2 and a handful of indie horror films, including the wickedly entertaining horror musical Stage Fright starring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf. Overall, it’s a good week to be a genre fan with oddball tastes because there’s a whole lot of wonderfully weird stuff arriving this Tuesday.

Spotlight Titles:

The Baby (Severin Films, Blu-ray)

An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, »

Composer Christopher Young Delivers Us Some Evil

7 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Christopher Young knows horror. After 32 years in the business and countless horror movies under his belt from Hellraiser to The Grudge to Drag Me To Hell to his latest, Deliver Us From Evil, Young is a wealth of information when it comes to talking all things fear. A composer, but also a big fan, Young’s appreciation for the genre has in turn helped him give it some of its most terrifying scores. Young didn’t seek out the horror genre, it just happened that he was coming up in the business when films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and Freddy the 13th reigned supreme. Deliver Us From Evil marks the third time Young has worked with director Scott Derrickson, and Young is clearly a fan of the rising filmmaker, noting that he is one of only a handful of directors whose specialty is horror.  “He’s one of two or three horror directors that I »

Juno Mak's Rigor Mortis is a Visual Marvel: A Movie Review

4 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a Blu-ray screener of this film was provided by Well Go USA. Director: Juno Mak. Producers: Takashi Shimizu and Juno Mak. Cast: Chin Siu-ho, Nina Paw Hee-ching, Anthony Chan, Kara Wai, Richard Ng and Chung Fat. Rigor Mortis is a Chinese film from Hong Kong. The film was developed by filmmaker Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge) and inexperienced director Juno Mak. A true visual marvel, Rigor Mortis offers lots of horror elements.

Siu-ho (Siu-ho Chin) is a former actor and he has been kicked out of his home, by his wife. He chooses suicide as an escape from his pain, but a neighbour intervenes. Tung (Richard Ng »

Film Review: ‘Rigor Mortis’

4 June 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The cause of death would appear to be visual-effects overkill in the case of “Rigor Mortis,” a flashy, incoherent and virtually scare-free Hong Kong horror exercise that marks the directing debut of actor, singer, record producer and fashion maven Juno Mak. Set in a gloomy apartment building where a washed-up actor has come to die, only to find himself and other residents staring down an infestation of computer-generated supernatural baddies, this busy, blood-spattered thriller seeks to reanimate the popular “hopping vampires” movies from the 1980s and early ’90s, and will indeed prove largely impenetrable for audiences not already steeped in knowledge of that particular niche. The result has pulled in strong B.O. at home since last fall, but only Asian genre completists are likely to lick their fangs over it in limited Stateside release.

"If I had a dick, this is where I'd tell you to suck it!". That's right, kids! The great Betty White spoke those words way back in 1999 when Lake Placid took a bite out of theatres. The scene still brings a smile to my face, and given the Scream Factory's history, this Blu-ray will, too!

New Details On "The Grudge" Reboot

10 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Midnight Meat Train" writer Jeff Buhler was hired not that long ago to pen a script for the upcoming reboot of "The Grudge" franchise at Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures.

Buhler has now spoken with FearNet about the project, saying this is a full-on reboot that will essentially ignore the three previous films:

"We're not approaching this as a remake of the Sarah Michelle Gellar film or a remake of the 'Ju-on' film. This is pushing the mythology forward while keeping the concepts and spirit of those movies, yet finding a new way to tell a story within that world, which is exciting."

He adds that there are "new characters, new ghost, and a new mythology. We are still in the scripting process [and] very early in the process." »

Sam Raimi Plans to Reboot 'The Grudge' and Make J-Horror Popular Again

25 March 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Who’s ready for more creepy ghost kids? Ghost House Pictures is hoping you are, because it's getting ready to reboot The Grudge. The 2004 film -- directed by Japanese director Takashi Shimizu, and based on his Japanese film Ju-On -- became a box office hit here in America. Sarah Michelle Gellar starred in the remake, which made almost $200 million globally and spawned a sequel. Now, Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert want to revive the fledgling fright franchise, and have hired Midnight Meat Train screenwriter Jeff Buhler to pen the script. The remake, and Shimizu’s original, was a key title in the wave of wildly popular Japanese ghost films of the early 2000s. These supernaturally tinged tales became instantly recognizable for their creepy, shambling monsters...
