A Disaster Looms in this Preview for Atomica!

Atomica was originally titled Deep Burial. The film, from director Dagen Merrill (Beneath, 2007), stars: Tom Sizemore, Sarah Habel and Dominic Monaghan. This intriguing title has had a few theatrical showings already. The film is set for a few more on March 17th, 2017. And, the film involves a nuclear power plant, which has gone offline. An inspector finds the plant's workers, but they are acting strangely and possibly murderously. Atomica will also have a Video-on-demand launch this March 21st. The film's official trailer is hosted here. The trailer, for Atomica, is an interesting one. It shows the character Abby infiltrating the plant, which appears to be abandoned. But, one of the plant's managers eventually turns up and he may not be who he seems to be. From early reviews, the film covers a few themes. Heidi Honeycutt, at Rue Morgue, has mentioned the nihilism of this title and the cynicism: "Atomica

This Week In The Vault: Heidi Martinuzzi & Jill Kill Talk 'The Stendhal Syndrome'

This Week In The Vault: Heidi Martinuzzi & Jill Kill Talk 'The Stendhal Syndrome'
This week, we're stirring things up in 'The Vault!' We've got Dario Argento's controversial 1996 film 'The Stendhal Syndrome' starring his daughter Asia Argento. And our commentators for this one are Fangoria contributor Heidi Martinuzzi and horror host Jill Kill. The gals offer a pretty unique and often hilarious commentary on one of Argento's most misunderstood horror cult classics. In 'The Stendhal Syndrome,' Asia plays Detective Anna Manni, a young policewoman tracking down an elusive serial rapist/killer & who slowly starts going insane herself after becoming a victim of the brutal man's obsession. Yep, and her father directed he in this. Heidi and Jill aren't afraid to tackle the awkwardness of 'The Stendhal Syndrome,' nor do they shy away from breaking out wigs in the films' honor! Check out our latest entry into 'The Vault,' Dario Argento's 'The Stendhal Syndrome.' If you'd like to

Eric Anthony Pereira's The Locals is not yet available, however, that's not stopping him from moving on to his next film, American Girls . Based on true events, the film is a happy-happy-fun time story (insert sarcasm there) about the abduction, rape and murder of two high school girls and the fallout that nearly decimates a small Mid-Western town as long buried secrets surface when the police begin to put together the pieces of the crime. Kristina Page, Burgandi Phoenix, Devanny Pinn, Josh Hammond, Chris Anglin, Al Snow, Jessica Cameron, Kyle Morris, Barry Ratcliffe, Tawny Amber Young, Brandon Slagle, Heidi Martinuzzi and Carlos Ramirez star.

'Bloody Breasts' - Maude Michaud's horror documentary web series arrives!

What began as a feature-length documentary two years ago has now evolved into a webseries about women and horror films directed by Montreal filmmaker Maude Michaud, debuting April 3rd, 2011.

The first episode is titled “Women love horror?” and features interviews with directors and festival owners such as , Devi Snively, Reyna Young, Shannon Lark, Katt Shea, Kier-La Janisse, Denise Gossett, Heidi Martinuzzi and Elisabeth Fies.

Finals Week: The Rise of Women in Horror Fandom and Film

By James Morgart

“There is no pleasure. There is no pain. There is only skin.” - Pinhead, Hellraiser III

“Women tend to be more tolerant about visceral things because they have more direct personal experience with them. They cope with periods once a month, they go through childbirth and they are usually the ones who look after the bleeding and battered limbs when the kids take a tumble. They can put blood and gore in context and generally cope better than men.” - Bela Lugosi

Most scholarship on the horror film has assumed that males are the primary spectators of horror; however, there have been developments, both in scholarship as well as in mainstream media, to contradict this point. In 2009, journalist Michelle Orange pointed out, in an article written for the New York Times, “Recent box office receipts show that women have an even bigger appetite for these [horror] films than men.

Finals Week: I Spit on This Movie: Rape in Day of the Woman/I Spit On Your Grave

That's right, folks! It's Finals Week again, when we post academic articles about horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and action flicks written by our extremely educated staff. All week long you can read these slightly modified but always theory-filled papers and do your best to follow along.

I Spit on This Movie: Rape in Day of the Woman/I Spit On Your Grave by Heidi Martinuzzi

In the recent remake of the 1980 exploitation horror film “I Spit On Your Grave”, some scenes involving the protagonist, Jennifer – a young woman brutally raped by 4 men who seeks a violent and bloody revenge – were written out because the director felt that it was unrealistic that Jennifer would actively seduce each rapist before killing him. Not only did the director feel that taking out this almost insulting aspect of the original movie made his new version more realistic, he felt that it also eliminated the ‘exploitation’ factor from the movie.
