Blu-ray Review: Warlock Collection [Vestron Video Collector’s Series]

  • DailyDead
Horror was in a weird place in the early 1990s. Most of the big franchises of the ’80s had more or less run their course, and in their place were a handful of new “icons” that would be turned into franchises whether it was warranted or not: the Child’s Play movies continued to be a growing concern, as did Candyman and Hellraiser and Leprechaun. One attempt to launch a new franchise that never quite took was 1991’s Warlock, which inspired two sequels of varying quality before calling it quits. All three films are now gathered together on Blu-ray for the first time as part of the Warlock Collection, the latest in the Vestron Video Collector’s Series from Lionsgate.

The original Warlock is genuinely something special—maybe not a new classic, but certainly a really good version of what it is. It’s a film with an impressive

Ashley Lauren has a lot to say to Tom about their failed relationship on Sunday’s “Spouse House” Tell All. The exclusive sneak peek at the TLC unscripted series shows the pair weighing in on why their romance fizzled, with Ashley Lauren claiming Tom has unrealistic expectations for a significant other. “You want someone who just fits into your life,” she tells him. “I think that Tom and I had sex is what made it more difficult for me to give us up. But I realized there was no emotional intimacy. I wanted you to get to know me.” Also Read: 'Spouse.

DVD & Blu-rays: R.I.P Herschell Gordon Lewis, Howling 2: Your Sister Is A Werewolf

Nick Aldwinckle Nov 24, 2016

The Bottom Shelf returns, with a video nasty, The Howling 2, and a tribute to the late Herschell Gordon Lewis...

To most, September 26th is the date when, in 1680, the Dutch city Gorinchem suffered a citizen’s revolt due to an imposed tax on cereal. From now on, though, that will change, as any right-thinking person will remember that date in 2016 as the day The Godfather Of Gore, the great Herschell Gordon Lewis, died.

The brain behind a range of vintage cult classics, spanning the gamut of exploitation cinema, from splatter movies to comedy erotica and supernatural witchcraft thriller (niche!), Lewis’ influential sixties and seventies productions paved the way for the video nasties of the eighties and the gory likes of David Cronenberg and Peter Jackson and stand up today as camp, gawdy historical documents of a bygone era. As such, to coincide with an impeccably timed release

It Will Tear Your Soul Apart

Stephen King was once quoted as saying: “I have seen the future of horror… his name is Clive Barker.” That future became reality when, in 1987, Barker unleashed his directorial debut Hellraiser – launching a hit franchise and creating an instant horror icon in the formidable figure of Pinhead.

Barker’s original Hellraiser, based on his novella The Hellbound Heart, follows Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) as she comes head-to-head with the Cenobites – demonic beings from another realm who are intent on reclaiming

Halloween 2016: 31 Movies to Stream on Netflix this October to Get You into the Spirit of the Season

  • DailyDead
One of my favorite things to do every October is to binge-watch as many horror and sci-fi movies as possible (something I can guarantee I’m not alone in doing), and for those of you with Netflix, the streaming service can be an invaluable resource this time of year, although I do remember a time when there were a lot more options than we get these days.

That being said, I culled Netflix's entire library and put together 31 great movie choices that will undoubtedly get you into a macabre mood to celebrate Halloween this year. Take a look at our Netflix list below, featuring one film for each day of October, and get ready to enjoy an entire month’s worth of fright-filled fun, courtesy of Netflix’s streaming database.

FrightFest Presents Review – Last Girl Standing (2015)

Last Girl Standing, 2015.

Directed by Benjamin R. Moody.

Starring Akasha Villalobos, Danielle Evon Ploeger, Brian Villalobos, Jason Vines, Laura Ray, Ryan Hamilton and Kelsey Pribilski.

Synopsis:

So what does happen to the final girl once the chase is over? She doesn’t live happily ever after apparently…

Have you ever wondered what really happens to the final girl in the gruesome world of slasher movies? Some make it into the sequel and get killed off within the first 10 minutes as a new bunch of debauched teens becomes the focus of whichever franchise killer is the current pop culture icon but, for the purposes of this film at least, let us assume that there are no sequels and that the final survivor must continue their life with the weight of what they have been through resting on their shoulders. That is where Last Girl Standing begins.

Hellraiser Trilogy Blu-Ray Review

Hellraiser Trilogy Blu-Ray Review

Directors: Clive Barker, Tony Randel, Anthony Hickox

Cast: Doug Bradley, Ashley Laurence, Claire Higgins, Sean Chapman, Simon Bamford, Nicholas Vince

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 330 minutes

Special Features: Documentaries, featurettes, cast and crew audio commentaries, image galleries, trailers and draft screenplays.

Who knew that one short story could produce such a cinematic legacy? Well that’s exactly what happened when English horror author Clive Barker penned the dark and disturbing tale The Hellbound Heart. The story was first published in 1986 and would go on to become the source material for the movie Hellraiser, which Barker also directed. The novella and film focusses on a mystical puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration and the horror it wreaks on the people unfortunate to come across it.

Hellraiser performed well and was granted a sequel which picked up right where the first film ended. It in turn was granted

Hellraiser – The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy

Directed by Clive Barker/Tony Randel/Anthony Hickox.

Starring Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins, Doug Bradley , Ashley Laurence, Nicholas Vince, Simon Bamford, Barbie Wilde, Sean Chapman, Kenneth Cranham, Oliver Parker, Terry Farrell, Kevin Bernhardt, Oliver Smith, Grace Kirby, Paula Marshall, Ken Carpenter, Imogen Boorman, William Hope.

Synopsis:

The first three films in the Hellraiser series are given a new lease of life in an expansive Blu-ray box set, courtesy of Arrow Video.

To say that this release has been highly anticipated in the horror community since it was first announced several months ago would be something of an understatement; in fact, it would be a total lie as once it was announced that Clive Barker’s classic Hellraiser and its two immediate sequels were getting a 2K restoration then October 26th 2015 became judgement day for anybody with an appreciation for Barker’s masterpiece and the mythology it spawned,

Review: "Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy 1987-1992", UK Blu-ray Release From Arrow Films

By Darren Allison

Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy 1987-1992 Directed by Clive Barker, Tony Randel, Anthony Hickox, Starring Doug Bradley, Andy Robinson, Ashley Laurence, Claire Higgins, Kenneth Cranham, Terry Farrell, Kevin Bernhardt. Arrow Blu-ray 4 Disc, Released on 26th October 2015.

Arrow’s beautifully produced Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box, has arguably for the first time, been afforded the prestige it fully deserves. The collection works very nicely in deed, mainly because its focus revolves around creator Clive Barker’s involvement in the franchise. Whilst Barker had a small interest in the fourth instalment Hellraiser IV: Bloodline, it would be the

Antichrist (2009)- His and her pain

As far as horror sub-genres go, torture porn is up there with found footage as the most understandably reviled by audiences. With Antichrist, Lars Von Trier attempted to write a film that dealt with his personal demons. Confessing that he had been suffering from depression while writing the screenplay, Trier ended up bringing torture porn to its logical conclusion by taking the title of the sub-genre all too literally and creating a macabre near-masterpiece out of trashy genre origins.
