Ten Best: Indie horrors to watch on TheHorrorShow.TV

19 September 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We’re just over a month away from Halloween and there are no less than four major UK horror festivals on the horizon, so what better time to take a look at you choice of “home video” horror – with ten of the best independent horror movies to rent or buy on TheHorrorShow.TV

The Top 10, in no particular order, are…

Camp Dread

Mixing the slasher movie with reality TV doesn’t seem like the best idea for horror movie, especially considering the mainstream backlash against both genres, but surprisingly Camp Dread manages to overcome it’s much-maligned origins. Of course any slasher movie set at a summer camp is going to be filled with the tropes of the genre and this film is no different – although this time around the stereotypes and cliches which would typically hinder such a production actually work in its favour. By embracing what made the »

‘Varsity Blood’ Review

8 September 2014 3:37 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Lexi Giovagnoli, Wesley Scott, Debbie Rochon, Natalie Peyton, Blair Jackson, Elyse Bigler, Melody Herron, Jesse Ferraro, Kiarra Hogan, Chris Hlozek, Payton Wood, Fabian Watkins, Elle Lamont | Written and Directed by Jake Helgren

Quick question. This is 2014 right? You wouldn’t guess that from watching Varsity Blood!

It would seem that the trend for producing horror movies that harken back to the 80s and the golden age of the slasher, has officially become the “norm” for modern examples of the genre. Every month there seems to be another slasher movie that hits DVD and/or VOD which looks and feels like the self-referential post-Scream years never happened. But I’m not complaining, oh no! As a Huge fan of slasher movies (even the likes of Iced and Terror at Tenkiller) I relish the opportunity to watch each and every new entry into the much-maligned genre.

Thankfully the quality of modern slashers has, »

FrightFest 2014: 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' review

25 August 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Familiarity, they say, breeds contempt, as has clearly become the case with the Nightmare on Elm Street cycle. There have been nine entries in the iconic series to date (each increasingly weaker as time has progressed), to the extent that it's remarkably easy to forget how groundbreaking the original film - screening at this year's Film4 FrightFest - actually was. The early 1980s saw the golden age of the teenager in peril subgenre, which has since become a staple of the wider slasher field. Genre offerings such as Prom Night (1980), Terror Train (1980) and The Burning (1981) have long thrilled audiences with their mixture of teenage promiscuity and grizzly series of murders.

The Poltergeist Remake Gets Official Release Date

7 August 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Most of us are a little leery about this one. Its become common practice for Hollywood to defecate on classic pics. The Fog got the horrendously disrespectful treatment as did a slew of others like Prom Night Psycho The Wicker Man The Hitcher and The Amityville Horror... and so on and so forth. Its obvious the money hounds in Socal arent batting a thousand. But were hopeful in this instance. The new Poltergeist has some awesome things going for it like an amazing cast and a capable director with one of the finest animated pics ever released under his belt. Theres definitely hope here. »

Faceless Internation Trailer for Damned Love (Maldito Amor)

27 May 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Another trailer is here for the Chilean slasher flick Damned Love (Maldito Amor) and we are super stoked to unwrap this latest sliver of eye candy for the romantic comedy meets 70's Italian Giallo flick with a dash of 80's American slasher!

Gonzalo Badilla directs a script co-written by him and Sebastián Badilla, who also appears in the film.

Synopsis

Prom night is ruined for a group of teenagers thanks to the assassination of their teacher Marion, who was brutally murdered just two days before the big event by a faceless maniac. This will ruin the plans of Arturo (Sebastián Badilla), who was waiting for that exact moment to declare himself to the girl of his dreams, María Elena (Trinidad de la Noi), who just suddenly started a relationship with a mysterious magician called Tatán (Nicolás Luisetti).

Arturo will start a friendship with Beatriz, the most popular girl in school, »

Nashville Season Finale Finds Connie Britton's Rayna James at a Crossroads

14 May 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

var brightcovevideoid = '3565514772001'; Like a great country song, Nashville's season finale looks to be full of emotion, memorable lines and hard knocks. Although the clip from the season 2 finale doesn't feature any car crashes like last year, or an appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama like last week, it does showcase a lot of personal and musical drama - as well as an appearance from People Editorial Director Jess Cagle. "How's that album launch going?" Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) asks country music queen Rayna James (Connie Britton) in an exclusive preview from the episode. "It's a huge week, and »

10 Horror Icons That Deserve Action Figures

13 May 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

On a recent episode of Killer Pov, the podcast I co-host with Fangoria’s Rebekah McKendry and Inside Horror’s Elric Kane, we tackled the topic of “Childhood Obsessions,” and that led to discussing our desire as young budding horror fans to obtain any toys we could get our hands on based upon some of our favorite genre properties. There weren’t that many horror toys when I was a kid, except for the talking Freddy doll, but as an adult, everything pretty much changed when McFarlane Toys unleashed their Movie Maniacs line back in 1998 and proved that there was in fact a huge market for these kind of collectibles. I remember distinctly hunting for the “bloody variant” Leatherface figure at all the local Kay Bee stores, much to the surprise and shock of the clerk’s face when I brought it up to the counter to buy. “We sell this here? »

'Urban Legends: Final Cut' Deserves Another Chance, and Here’s Why...

14 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

I’m not going to delude myself and think that we’re going to start a revolution, and that Urban Legends: Final Cut will somehow surpass Halloween as the better film. But just hear me out; it’s a much better film than people have ever given it credit to be.

I was surfing around Netflix and saw it had been added; I own the DVD but as is with our age of digital gratification I popped it on anyways. As the credits started I remembered back to when I first saw it. The year was 2000, and I was looking through the DVD selection at my local Ames; a chain long since extinct, and I spotted it. I didn’t even have internet at the time- (go ahead and judge), and had heard nothing about a sequel to Urban Legends. I bought it sight unseen after reading the description, for a modest $24.99.

Weekend Report: 'Captain America' Wins Close Fight with 'Rio 2'

13 April 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

In a strange turn of events, Rio 2 took first place at the box office on Friday, but fell back to second place for the three-day weekend. Chalk this up to nice weather throughout most of the country, which kept family audiences away from the multiplexes on Saturday.As a result, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was able to narrowly hold on to the top spot for the second-straight weekend. The superhero sequel added $41.3 million, which was off 57 percent from its debut. That's about on par with Iron Man 3 (58 percent) and Thor: The Dark World (57 percent), but it's also a bit worse than the movie's strong reviews and word-of-mouth would suggest. So far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has earned $158.9 million at the domestic box office. If it remains on pace with the Thor and Iron Man sequels, it will finish with at least $225 million.Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 »

First Trailer Explores Damned Love (Maldito Amor)

‘Bloody Homecoming’ Review

10 March 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jim Tavaré, Rae Latt, Lexi Giovagnoli, Alex Dobrenko, Randi Lamey, Branden Lee Roth, Taryn Cervarich, Elizabeth Bigger, Shaleen Cholera, Grainne McDermott, Jesse Ferraro, Steve Earnest, Victoria Park, Hilary Wagner | Written by Jake Helgren | Directed by Brian C. Weed

Three years earlier Billy Corbin died trapped in a fiery storeroom. Now the ones who let him burn are attending their school homecoming party and it could be their last. 
It’s payback time without pity for the young, the foolish and the beautiful. One by one they disappear, each meeting a gory, terrifying end. The corridors of Winston High are dark, slippery and wet with the blood of those who came before.

First off, you’re probably all aware of just how much I love slasher movies. If I have one particular genre love (behind 80s teen flicks I might add) it’s 80s slashers. I could never get enough »

[A Brew To A Kill] ‘My Bloody Valentine’ & Moosehead Lager

14 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I am such a sucker for a Slasher film.  Maybe it was the late night viewings on cable that endeared me. Or perhaps the lurid video covers that are tucked deep in the recesses of my brain. But I’m hooked. For life.

The small town of Valentine Bluffs is ready to move forward. A horrible mining accident on Valentine’s night took the life of all the men in the mine, except one. Harry Warden. And exactly one year later he killed the men he deemed responsible. Tearing their hearts out and leaving them at the annual Valentine’s dance. Since then Valentine’s Day hasn’t been celebrated for fear of Harry Warden’s wrath. With the first dance in twenty years looming, people start turning up dead. Has Harry Warden finally returned?

My Bloody Valentine was released at the height of the Slasher craze. After Black Christmas, »

“The Carrie Diaries” Walt Recap: Broken Wings

25 January 2014 12:08 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

When we last checked in on Walt Reynolds (Brendan Dooling) on The Carrie Diaries, things were not going well. He survived a mid-80′s AIDS scare, but it drove him back in the closet, where he broke up with boyfriend Bennet, and begged his disapproving parents for another chance. Oh Walt.

Prom, 1986. The world is about to bear witness to the awesome debacle known as … Hands Across America! It was a resounding success in NYC, with Carrie, Walt, and Samantha providing three of the links … until Samantha realized it was not Handjobs Across America, and lost interest.

Blair, Jo, Tootie, Natalie, and George The Gay Handyman (I’ll let you decide who is who) decide to screw protocol and attend the prom as a team, which has Walt excited, until he learns that it’s going to held in NYC, which he hasn’t visited since his vomit meltdown.
