23 December 2012 1:35 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We're giving you ten different lists this time, and per usual they come in a variety of formats, each reflecting the unique styles of our writers. We've also compiled them to come up with the year's overall winners and losers.

And don't be lazy by just reading along! Give us your own lists in the comments section below. We want to hear what you thought of the year in which we dodged the Mayan apocalypse but find our beloved genre facing some dark days as violent movies, video games, TV shows, etc., are coming under increased scrutiny following recent events.

But back to the matter at hand; we averaged out the top and bottom five vote getters on everyone's lists, and here are the results:

Look for Malcolm in the Middle of Destruction: Las Vegas

30 October 2012 10:56 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

An ancient Egyptian curse is unleashing sand tornadoes and hurricane force winds on Las Vegas. This sounds like a mission for Agent Cody Banks! Destruction: Las Vegas is at hand, and only Frankie Muniz can save the day!

But even “Malcolm in the Middle” can’t help everyone Stay Alive without a little help from some friends. That’s where “Todd and the Book of Pure Evil” co-star Maggie Castle, “United States of Tara” co-star Andrew Laurence, “90210” co-star Michael Steger, and the venerable Barry Bostwick as a Vegas lounge lizard come into play.

Synopsis:

As a group of college students celebrate in Las Vegas over Spring Break, a furious windstorm unlike any other descends upon the city. Hotel after hotel, the famed Vegas Strip is ripped apart by massive tornadoes of sand and hurricane-like winds.

When Comedy meets Horror (part two)

27 October 2012 12:43 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Continuing on from part one, when comedy meets horror is an attempt to track the most interesting examples of films that mix comedy and horror together. As a genre, its possibly the one that can be pinpointed as the biggest perpetrator for bad horror movies. For example, Scary Movie is the film that comes to mind with people who have a less specialist interest in cinema. Just before we get into part 2, I can safely report that the aforementioned franchise won’t be getting its mits anywhere near these articles. Also, another worthy note of mention – look forward to part 5 in which the entries will be “the greatest horror comedies ever made”. Until then, we are just warming up.

Save The Green Planet

Save the green planet is quite the Korean eccentricity. Mixing together torture, slapstick comedy, highly stylised fight scenes, police procedural and sci-fi results in a concoction that defies definition. »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

20 October 2012 4:13 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter; What to Expect When You're Expecting; Red Lights; Chernobyl Diaries; Some Guy Who Kills People; Where Do We Go Now?

With the American electoral race making for ever more dramatic television, it's fitting that the silver screen should turn once again toward presidents for its drama. Last week Roger Michell's Hyde Park on Hudson took its UK bow at the BFI London film festival, with Bill Murray impressing with his portrayal of a womanising yet altruistic Franklin D Roosevelt. In the coming months we shall see Daniel Day-Lewis take the eponymous role in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, which is already being tipped as a serious awards contender. In the meantime, on DVD, we have an altogether more frivolous take on America's leaders in Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012, Fox, 15), in which Benjamin Walker plays the 16th president as an avenging angel who hates »

9 October 2012 12:05 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Around here we're good to Smiley. Why? Because we don't want him showing up behind us and tearing our throats out. Pretty simple logic there, no? Anyway, the grinning killer has reciprocated our love by hooking you cats up with an exclusive poster and clip! Dig it!

Taken 2 takes UK box office by storm – and surprise

9 October 2012 6:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Is a lower 12A certificate responsible for Taken 2 grossing more in the UK in a weekend than the entire run of its predecessor?

The winner

When Taken debuted in the UK in September 2008 with £1.17m, the Liam Neeson action film proved a surprise word-of-mouth hit with audiences, its box office dropping just 6% the following weekend, and eventually achieving a healthy total of 5.5 times its opening number (£6.39m). The film went on to be a robust performer on DVD. In other words, all the planets looked felicitously aligned for the sequel, and industry expectations for commercial performance were appropriately high.

Even so, the success of Taken 2 has caught commentators by surprise. With £6.19m over the three-day weekend, and £7.38m including Thursday previews, the Istanbul-set film has already grossed more than the entire UK run of the original Taken. If previews are discounted from opening weekend figures (as they should »

Movie Review - Some Guy Who Kills People (2011)

7 October 2012 11:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some Guy Who Kills People, 2011.

Directed by Jack Perez.

Starring Kevin Corrigan, Barry Bostwick, Karen Black, Arield Gade, Leo Fitzpatrick, Eric Price and Lucy Davis.

Synopsis:

Following his release from psychiatric care, a 34 year old loner attempts to rebuild his life. When members of his old school basketball team start winding up dead, suspicion eventually falls upon him.

Horror comedy can be a notoriously difficult trick to pull off. When done with wit and finesse (Shaun of the Dead, An American Werewolf in London) and the right balance between laughs and scares, the geek friendly genre splicing can be a real winner.

John Landis, executive producer on Some Guy Who Kills People, is one of the past masters of this thorny craft, so who better - whether through labour or by example - to imbue this enjoyable flick with something of his trademark style.

Focusing on disturbed loner Ken (Kevin Corrigan; Pineapple Express, »

Grimmfest 2012, Day 2: Devoured Will Swallow Your Soul

6 October 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Round two of Grimmfest was another half day -  the festival is packing everything into the weekend. As the day began, the Grimmfest crew was riding high off the first day reviews in the UK mainstream press for the launch of Some Guy Who Kills People, which their new venture Grimm Up North Entertainment is distributing (am I shilling that film too much? No, I don't think I am). I screwed up my schedule, so had no chance to catch Nightbreed: the Cabal Cut - that'll have to wait until Sheffield's Celluloid Screams festival later this month - but there were still a couple more screenings to squeeze into.Devoured Greg Oliver picked a strange film with which to start making features.

This week's new films

5 October 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Liberal Arts (12A)

(Josh Radnor, 2012, Us) Josh Radnor, Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins, 97 mins

University applications could well go into terminal decline as a result of this irritatingly winsome comedy, in which an archetypal New York slacker returns to his alma mater, meets an archetypal free-spirited young student (Olsen) and relives his lost youth of music, books and self-absorbed pseudo-intellectual chit chat. It's like Woody Allen without the wit.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (12A)

(Stephen Chbosky, 2012, Us) Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ezra Miller. 103 mins

Life as a high-school outsider never looked so appealing as in this well-intentioned coming-of-ager, in which Lerman's loner is adopted by a band of bohemian outcasts. Watson's post-Potter moment is somewhat overshadowed by the flamboyant Miller.

Sinister (15)

(Scott Derrickson, 2012, Us) Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, James Ransone. 110 mins

Despite the old "just moved into a house with a terrible history" storyline, and a found-footage element, there's »

Film Review: 'Some Guy Who Kills People'

5 October 2012 9:29 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ From director Jack Perez (the man behind 2009 creature feature Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus) and executive producer John Landis comes Some Guy Who Kills People (2011), an evocative if slightly misguided attempt to explore mental illness via the medium slasher/comedy generic hybrid. Starring Kevin Corrigan and The Office's Lucy Davis, Perez's latest is likeable enough - and a vast improvement on his previous outing - yet still fails to do anything more than brush the surface of its difficult chosen subject matter.

Grimmfest 2012, Day 1: Comedown Is One Hell Of A Rush

5 October 2012 4:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Grimmfest 2012 kicked off in earnest - after the special preview night on Wednesday 4th October - with a gala screening of the world premiere for Comedown, the new film from Mehnaj Huda (Kidulthood) swapping social commentary for stalk-and-slash. To make it a double bill of London-themed splatter, they followed this up with a screening of the horror-comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies, and rounded things off with the first of four advance slots for last year's Some Guy Who Kills People - for which the festival crew are handling the UK release, the first film on their new distribution venture (as Grimm Up North Entertainment). Having followed Grimmfest for the past few years it was very gratifying seeing their efforts rewarded by a healthy turnout, with »

It’s Friday, so you know what that means – another round-up of what films are hitting cinemas this weekend; and this week there’s a wide selection of films to choose from at the box-office…

Nationwide Releases Sinister

Sinister is the terrifying new horror from the producer of Insidious and Paranormal Activity and the writer-director of The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. Struggling true crime novelist, Ellison (Ethan Hawke), becomes too close to his latest gruesome story when he discovers a box of mysterious and brutal home movies in his attic. Sinister Review

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

A funny and touching coming-of-age story based on the beloved best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up.

GrimmFest 2012 Review: Some Guy Who Kills People

Some Guy Who Kills People

Stars: Kevin Corrigan, Karen Black, Barry Bostwick, Lucy Davis, Ariel Gade | Written by Ryan A. Levin | Directed by Jack Perez

Movie fans are very thankfully for the internet, they may deny it at times but through it they have discovered films they never would have heard of and discovered the world of the independent movie. These films tend to gain attention through word of mouth, or words on screen and play festivals to try and get fans interest. Sometimes they are helped by bigger names in the industry that can get them attention just through a name, but mostly it’s that ability to catch the eye of the fans. Some Guy Who Kills People is a film that caught John Landis’ eye, so much that he became an executive producer, to film geeks that’s almost a golden seal of approval, but it was »
