Dark Summer and Alien Outpost Hitting DVD/Bluray This July Via Scream Factory/IFC Midnight

15 May 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook to The Vicious BrothersExtraterrestrial all being must have releases for horror fans.  Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, Sf & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s Dark Summer and Jabbar Raisani’s Very solid film Alien Outpost. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, Grace), so Dark Summer hitting shelves is some excellent news, and Alien Outpost is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

Image Entertainment Acquires Stanley Film Fest hit Some Kind Of Hate

4 May 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Fresh out of making one hell of a splash at this week’s Stanley Film Festival, the Adam Egypt Mortimer-helmed horror flick Some Kind Of Hate, has now been acquired by Image Entertainment/Rlj, joining Joe Dante’s Burying The Ex and another film that I’m anxious to check out, Dark Was The Night. Image has done a great job picking up some interesting and entertaining genre films lately, and the fact that they jumped at the chance to pick up Some Kind Of Hate just shows that they’re committed to bringing horror fans interesting and thought-provoking films. Adding to the excitement, Mortimer is confidently becoming a jack of all trades, with previously not only directing music videos for bands like Against Me!, but producing the upcoming horror anthology Holidays, as well as putting out one of the most entertaining comics of recent time, Ballistic.

10 Random Horror Movie Questions with Bj Colangelo

30 April 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

No two horror fans are alike, and our differing tastes is a large part of why horror remains such a successful genre.  Fear is universal, but what exactly inspires that fear varies from person to person.  Over on Halloween Love, journalist John Squires tagged me in a “10 Random Horror Questions” survey that’s been circulating on YouTube.  Getting to know a writer can help you determine who’s opinion you most align with when looking for film recommendations. I challenge the rest of the Icons crew to do the same.

1. What was the first horror movie you remember watching?

My mother has always loved horror movies.  My dad was the type of person that loved to scare other people, but hated being scared. This meant that my mom would often watch horror alone, until they had me.  Thinking that I would just be too young to remember, my mom would »

Some Kind of Hate Slashes the Vein in this Red Band Trailer

29 April 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Some Kind of Hate is a self-described "feminist slasher movie." Though, that ten dollar phrase is not defined, in a recent interview at The Hollywood Reporter (with director Adam Egypt Mortimer). The film also covers bullying as Lincoln (Ronen Rubinstein) struggles to survive high school. He summons a feminine spirit to defend him. And then, the blood really begins to spray. Some Kind of Hate stars Grace Phipps (Fright Night), Spencer Breslin and Sierra McCormick. The film's first trailer is hosted here. The first trailer for the film develops more of the story. Lincoln can be seen falling to the ground, after an attack. Moira (Sierra McCormick) is introduced shortly thereafter, razor-blade in hand. Strange rituals and dark basements also litter the cinematic landscape. Some Kind of Hate is set to debut at the Stanley Film Festival. The theatrical premiere will take place May 2nd, This horror-centric film festival shows in Colorado. »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Beast Within

25 April 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The horror landscape was changing by 1982. People were tiring of slashers; even the Halloween franchise decided to take a left (some would say wrong) turn away from Shatner masks and sharpened knives, and used the brand name to explore the holiday itself in the perpetually under-appreciated Season of The Witch. The genre seemed to be turning towards monsters, from large scale dread fests such as John Carpenter's The Thing to more intimate fare like Frank Henenlotter's Basket Case. The horror films of 1982 displayed a refreshing variety of ways to make audiences jump, squirm, gasp, smile, and when the occasion arose, vomit. The Beast Within giddily checks all the boxes.

Released in February by United Artists, the film took in a total of 7.7 million at the box office. Those were not great numbers, and the reviews were worse. Mainstream critics in general have never been kind to horror; almost »

Canadian Cult Cinema: The Overlooked & Underrated

21 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You love the horror, suspense thriller, action and science fiction films that make up the world of Canadian cult cinema affectionately known as Canuxploitation.

You’ve watched the entire David Cronenberg genre filmography (if not, please do so now as The Brood, Scanners and The Fly are three of the greatest horror films ever made).

You’ve seen Black Christmas and The Changeling and watched a slasher-ific marathon of Prom Night, Terror Train, Happy Birthday to Me and My Bloody Valentine.

You caught up with Cube, the Ginger Snaps series, Splice, Hobo with a Shotgun and WolfCop all while keeping close tabs on the works of Astron-6.

Yet your hunger for Canadian genre film productions and co-productions cannot be satiated.

To aid you in your deeper exploration of the field, following is a chronological look at a number of Canadian genre films that simply don’t get enough attention.

Blu-ray Review: Class of 1984

14 April 2015 5:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Around the time I brought this Vestron Video release home from my local video store, I had an adolescent fascination with how the punk rock subculture that influenced my development had been portrayed in the media. In everything from video games to television and films, punk rockers were mostly portrayed as villains. There was a mythological aura surrounding the way these rebellious thugs were portrayed and it's clear in Class of 1984 that filmmaker Mark L. Lester (Commando) had a similar fascination and knew that pushing the legend made for better cinema.

Lester proudly declares now that he was prophetically making a film that bares important social significance and considers it to be the best film he's ever made, but let's be honest and admit that this movie is pure sleazy exploitation. Don't get me wrong, I love some good fun exploitation and as far as that's concerned there's no »

Exclusive: Thn Talks to Grace Phipps for ‘Dark Summer’

13 April 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We love a good horror here at Thn and were rather impressed with new release Dark Summer. The film stars It Follows actor Keir Gilchrist as Daniel, a teenage boy whose obsession with female classmate Mona. His obsession with her leads to some very dark places, including Mona’s death and being placed under house arrest for the summer. It is then that he realises that he is not alone, someone or something is haunting him, and he has no place to run.

Playing Mona is up-and-coming young actress Grace Phipps. Phipps started her career in the David Tennant starring Fright Night before going onto a regular role in American television show The Nine Lives of Chloe King. This was followed with a recurring stint on the phenomenally successful The Vampire Diaries. Then she landed a role in the newest Disney craze Teen Beach Movie. In-between Teen Beach and it’s sequel, »

DVD Review – What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

13 April 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

What We Do in the Shadows, 2014.

Directed by Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi.

Starring Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stuart Rutherford, Jackie van Beek, Ben Fransham.

Synopsis:

A documentary film crew follow the lives of four vampires as they go about adapting to boring 21st century life.

The vampire renaissance that occured during the last decade did manage to bring about a few gems to the genre – 30 Days of Night, Daybreakers and Fright Night all did their bit to show the well hadn’t run dry just yet – along wth the bollock-achingly dire but commercially successful Twilight and Underworld franchises, but you know that a genre has done all it is really going to do once the spoofs start appearing. There have been vampire comedies before of course, but how relevant or appealing Vampire in Brooklyn or Dracula: Dead and Loving It are to a 21st century audience »

Contest: Win the Class of 1984 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray

10 April 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When someone says they're "surviving high school," it can usually be considered an exaggeration, but when it comes to the teachers and students of Lincoln High, there's a literal truth in the phrase. Sinister students stalk the school's halls and don't hesitate to teach their own warped lessons to teachers after the bell rings in Mark L. Lester's Class of 1984. Scream Factory is releasing the early ’80s thriller in a Collector's Edition Blu-ray on April 14th, and we've been provided with two copies to give away to a couple of lucky Daily Dead readers.

"Synopsis: The teachers at Lincoln High have a very dangerous problem… their students!

Andrew Norris (Perry King, Lipstick, Mandingo), an idealistic and naive music teacher, has moved into a new community with his pregnant wife, Diane (Merrie Lynn Ross, General Hospital), only to find his new job is an academic abyss. Appalled by the crime-infested school, »

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 10

10 April 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1936 alternative one sheet for Modern Times (Charlie Chaplin, USA, 1936), designer unknown, and Us one sheet for The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, USA, 1980), designer: Saul Bass (1920-1996).As serendipity would have it, the two most popular posters of the past three months of Movie Poster of the Day were these two black and yellow faces, one a little-known 1930s poster by a journeyman designer at a budget print house, the other a very well known 1980s poster by the most recognizable name in movie poster design. Modern Times and Modern Horror. I’m hoping the love they received (over 500 likes and reblogs for each) were just as much about the items they were promoting: one my article on Leader Press, the other the Poster Boys podcast on Saul Bass by fellow movie poster aficionados (and ace designers) Sam Smith and Brandon Schaefer. Another Poster Boys related poster—Drew Struzan’s The Thing—also made the list. »
