Smith’S Top Picks Of 2012

30 December 2012 3:39 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Excision

-This one definitely caught me off guard. I had heard very little about it but finally watched the trailer when Rob G posted it on Icons of Fright. The imagery, combined with the Nin music made that trailer an instant obsession, and luckily the movie lived up to it. Great performances all around, a lot of them way against the normal roles the actors have played in the past. Traci Lords, John Waters, Jeremy Sumpter, they all were great, but AnnaLynne McCord Kills it in this movie. Awkward, vicious and sometimes downright horny, her portrayal of Pauline will most definitely go down as one of my all time favorite performances. Excision made me an instant fan of director Richard Bates Jr. and I’m stoked to see what he comes up with next.

Rob G.’S Top Horror Picks Of 2012!

27 December 2012 11:03 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Has it already been a year since I last did this?! Wow, 2012 is just about behind us and our beloved genre has seen some interesting offerings this year. I honestly had a really tough time coming up with 10 great horror selections, but then again, there are still a handful of titles I missed out on. For example, I hear great things about The Loved Ones, but have yet to see it. I’m fairly positive I’ll love [Rec] 3 once I get to it, and The Collection also seems like my kind of bat-shit lunacy. Also on my wish list is the anthology pic V/H/S. And while I really, really wanted to pick the Maniac remake (which would’ve been my number one) and the Soska Sister’s American Mary, neither of those saw an official release in 2012. (They’re both coming in 2013 for sure.) Unlike previous years, I »

Looking Back: Tim Picks the Five Best Horror Films from the Year 2012

26 December 2012 12:35 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since the horror genre is pretty much always ignored when awards season rolls around, this year, we figured our horror guru and The Golden Briefcase co-host Tim Buel should take the time to honor some of the best horror films of 2012. For my money, I think there's only a handful of truly great horror films in any given decade, but our own Tim Buel sees many more films in that genre than I do each year. So without further adieu, here are Tim's picks for the five best horror films of 2012. We'll tell you right now that Paranormal Activity 4 will not be found on this list, and you may not have even heard of a few of these films. Read on! #5. The Innkeepers Ti West's The House of the Devil was a huge sleeper hit with horror buffs when it came out in 2009, so everyone was greatly »

Dread Central's Best and Worst of 2012

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

Another year winds down, and it's time to reflect on the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2012's horror offerings. 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:

New Stills, Synopsis, And Release Date For You’Re Next!

22 December 2012 9:26 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Lionsgate has premiered two new stills from Adam Wingard’s home invasion-festival hit You’Re Next, and re-confirmed it’s August 23rd, 2013 release date! We’re still quite a way’s away from it’s theatrical debut, but hot damn I’m just beyond excited it’s coming! An updated synopsis has been released as well, which further gives us a taste of the carnage we can expect.

You’Re Next stars Sharni Vinson (Bait 3D), Aj Bowen (The House of the Devil), Barbara Crampton (From Beyond), Joe Swanberg (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way To Die), and Ti West (The Innkeepers).

Synopsis: “One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, You’re Next reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely »

V/H/S | DVD Review

18 December 2012 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Brad Miska, who runs bloody-disgusting.com, sees his fair share of horror successes and failures. It’s pretty safe to say that he knows what works and what doesn’t within the genre. So when he came up with the idea to combine the over-used but still viable found footage concept with an anthology film – which is enjoying a mini-renaissance of its own in horror, with films like The Theatre Bizarre and The ABCs of Death – and offer it up to a group of young, promising genre filmmakers that he’s been championing on his site, you can bet that people took notice of it. And when the resulting film, V/H/S, played at last year’s Sundance Festival, it floored everyone and was promptly acquired by Magnolia Pictures’ genre arm, Magnet Releasing, for a small theatrical run followed by a heavily-promoted VOD and home video release. The question that needs answering, »

40 Must See Films of 2013

15 December 2012 1:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

With the end of the year just around the corner, it’s time to get ready for the onslaught of cinema that awaits us in 2013. While it’s likely most of the films coming out after the Mayan apocalypse won’t be home run classics, there’s still a huge palette of interesting and bombastic movies waiting for us in the coming year. There’s a lot of big studio blockbusters and a good helping of smaller films that all look like they’ll be worth checking out.

With that, here’s a list of forty films (in the order of their release dates) that have sparked this author’s curiosity and should get you looking forward to another year at the multiplex.

40. Gangster Squad (1/11)

Despite delays caused by the shooting that took place in Aurora earlier this year, Ruben Fleischer’s ode to gangland violence doesn’t look to »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Compliance

13 December 2012 2:08 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Jan. 8, 2013

Price: DVD $26.98, Blu-ray $29.98

Studio: Magnolia

Dreama Walker (TV’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23), Ann Dowd (Garden State) and Pat Healy (The Innkeepers) star in the 2012 film Compliance, an independent crime-drama thriller reportedly inspired by true events that tells a story of just how far one might go to obey a figure of authority.

Dreama Walker complies in Compliance.

On a busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra (Dowd) receives a phone call from a police officer (Healy) saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde named Becky (Walker), has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she’s only doing what’s right, Sandra commences the investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer at the other end of the line, no matter how invasive they become. Things gets quite uncomfortable, to say the least.

Trailer & Poster For The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia!

12 December 2012 12:12 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Lionsgate is releasing a sequel to 2009′s The Haunting in Connecticut, which was initially titled The Haunting in Georgia, but has strangely been retitled The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia. Ya know, for continuity. Last we heard, Ti West was going to direct this, but pulled out due to creative differences and went on to do The Innkeepers instead. Judging by the newly debuted trailer, that was an extremely wise choice. Check it out for yourself below before it hits limited theaters and VOD February 1st, 2013.

Synopsis: “A young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray) moves his wife Lisa (Abigail Spencer) and daughter Heidi to an historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house’s only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa’s free-spirited sister, Joyce (Katee Sackhoff), the family soon comes face-to-face with a bone-chilling mystery born of a deranged desire… »

20 Best Horror Films of 2012

8 December 2012 9:06 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s no big secret I love horror films, but 2012 hasn’t been a great year. In my top ten, three films carry over from 2011, two won’t be released until 2013, two are animated and another isn’t much of a horror film. With that said, 2012 gave us Berberian Sound Studio and Cabin In The Woods, and for that, I am forever grateful. Here is a list of the 21 horror films from 2012 I liked best.

****

#1: Berberian Sound Studio

Directed by Peter Strickland

Written by Peter Strickland

UK, 2012

Berberian Sound Studio reminds us of the power of sound over the visual image, and can surely join the ranks of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation and Brian DePalma’s Blow Out as an absorbing appreciation of sound design. But both thematically and visually, Berberian is more of a descendant of the school of David Lynch and Roman Polanski. As things get increasingly, »

Exclusive: Ti West Talks V/H/S Blu-ray

5 December 2012 8:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Ti West talks about his segment of the upcoming horror anthology V/H/S, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Director Ti West is at the top of his game, with not one but two fantastic horror features in the same year. He kicked off 2012 by directed the phenomenal thriller The Innkeepers (which was sadly underseen), and now he directs a segment in the upcoming horror anthology V/H/S, which are now available on Blu-ray and DVD after a successful run in theaters and on VOD.

He is one of six different filmmakers (Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, and Radio Silence) whose unique shorts are combined into one thrilling tale. Ti West's short, dubbed "Second Honeymoon," is one of my favorites, centering on a young couple (Joe Swanberg and Sophia Takal) whose trip takes some incredibly creepy turns. I recently had the chance to »

New Trailer for The ABCs of Death

4 December 2012 1:37 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A red band trailer for The ABCs of Death gave us the first good look at the anthology horror film last month. If you’re looking for more, we have the new green band trailer that was just released. The ABCs of Death is an anthology horror film with 26 short chapters. Each chapter is directed by a different filmmaker, including Ti West, Xavier Gens, Adam Wingard, and more:

“Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABC’s Of Death is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. »

Exclusive: Kane Hodder’s “Old 37” gets rolling, adds Moseley & FX talent

16 November 2012 7:11 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Fango got the scoop that Bill Moseley, who previously shared the screen with Hodder in The Devil’S Rejects and Fallen Angels, will play his brother in Old 37 (which we last reported on here). Directed and edited by Christian Winters from a script by Paul Travers (also producing with Carrie Alton, Dayna Ghiraldi and Evan Greenhill), the movie sees the twisted siblings posing as paramedics, intercepting 911 calls and picking up victims in the titular vintage ambulance. The cast also includes Brandi Cyrus (Miley’s sister), Caitlin Harris, Olivia Alexander, Maxwell Zagorski, Ben Schneider and Mindy White. Creating the carnage is Brian Spears, whose many credits include I Sell The Dead, Stake Land, The Innkeepers, V/H/S and the upcoming Hellbenders and We Are What We Are.

“I’m really excited to be a part of Old 37,” Moseley says. “I love the script and the characters. It’s »

Watch: Red Band Trailer for Horror Anthology 'ABCs of Death'; 26 Films, 26 Ways to Die (Video)

15 November 2012 7:45 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Magnet Releasing has released the red band trailer for the horror anthology film "The ABCs of Death." Premiering two months ago at the Toronto International Film Festival to their rowdy Midnight Madness crowds, "The ABC's of Death" showcases 26 short films by 26 different directors, each short focusing on a letter of the alphabet and how it connects to some horrific way to die. The project gives several heralded contemporary horror directors from around the world, such as Ti West ("House of the Devil," "The Innkeepers"), Ben Wheatley ("Kill List"), and Jason Eisener ("Hobo with a Shotgun"), the chance to show off their gorror chops. It also expanded the search to a fan contest for the letter T (the winner being Lee Hardcastle for his claymation "T is for Toilet," which can be viewed here in its gory beauty). The red band trailer unabashedly flaunts its extreme blood, gore, violence and nudity, »
