Blu-ray Review – The Last House on the Left (1972)

The Last House on the Left, 1972.

Directed by Wes Craven.

Starring David Hess, Sandra Peabody, Fred J. Lincoln, Lucy Grantham, Richard Towers, Cynthia Carr, Martin Kove, Marc Sheffler, and Jeramie Rain.

Synopsis:

Two teenage girls are kidnapped and brutalised before the attackers in knowing seek shelter at the home of the parents of one of the girls.

Often cited as a huge influence on horror and exploitation cinema, Wes Craven’s feature debut The Last House on the Left is finally given the treatment it deserves in a lavish 3-disc limited edition Blu-ray set courtesy of Arrow Video. Having been a subject of controversy since its original release in 1972, this powerful rape/revenge movie has often divided fans and critics not only for its brutal and graphic content but also because, despite its importance in genre cinema, it is a film made by young and inexperienced filmmakers who didn’t

Insane Dream Warriors Welcome to Primetime Freddy Figure Teased by Neca

When it comes to top notch movie products, Neca is hard to beat and now they've raised the bar even further with the addition of a new Dream Warriors Welcome to Primetime Freddy figure. Earlier in the week, Neca showed off another Dream Warriors figure, which is based off of Freddy in his retro-style tuxedo and was previewed at the Toy Fair in New York earlier this year. These new Nightmare on Elm Street figures are a must have for any true fan of horror flicks.

"Welcome to Primetime, b*tch," is one of the most iconic lines in the long history of Freddy Krueger, so while the figure may look a little odd (in the best possible way), it's still incredible just for the fact that it was made alone. The Dream Warriors figure is shown against a wall and shows Freddy's head popping out of the TV, complete with his mechanical,

Go “Off the Beaten Track” in New Video for Dead By Daylight

From Michael Myers to Freddy Krueger, the horror video game Dead by Daylight has featured plenty of familiar faces from the horror genre, alongside new characters like The Trapper and The Wraith. And by the looks of a mysterious new slasher video, it looks like it won't be long before another killer joins the game's eerie ensemble.

Simply titled "Off the beaten track", you can watch the new video below. No details on new characters or chapters accompany the video, so we'll just have to wait and see what lies ahead in the woods for Dead by Daylight gamers.

For those unfamiliar with Behaviour Interactive's Dead by Daylight, the Starbreeze Studios video game allows you to play as a killer stalking survivors and trying to murder them one by one, or as a survivor fighting to see another day.

In addition to the mysterious next installment, other Dead by Daylight add-on chapters have included Saw,

Slots inspired by Asian movies

The days of one-armed bandits featuring fruits like cherries, grapes and melons are long gone. Visit an online casino today and you’ll be bowled over by the sheer range of different themes and subjects within slot games. From mermaids to leprechauns and fairgrounds to goldmines, you’ll find all these and more.

Many slot games have been inspired by the movies. This suits all parties involved – for slot game manufacturers, it’s an opportunity to widen the appeal of their products to fans of specific films, rather than just gamblers generally, and film studios get to add to their merchandise and generate more publicity for a movie.

It also benefits players, too. The fact that today’s technology means that slots can also feature clips and sound effects from the movies themselves – making them more immersive than ever before. We’ve also seen that this is a phenomenon that

Freddy Vs. Pinhead Concept Trailer Reveals The Crossover We Never Knew We Wanted

Over the years, we’ve laid eyes on all sorts of horror-tinged crossovers, be it the skin-crawling nightmare that is Alien vs. Predator or Ronny Yu’s iconic Freddy vs. Jason and all of its brutal, yet memorable kills.

There is one that’s eluded reality, though, and that’s Freddy Vs. Pinhead, a hypothetical project that would have placed the clawed Freddy Kreuger on a collision course with the legendary Cenobite, whose masochism and torture methods know no bounds.

Thankfully, the incredibly talented Stryder HD (h/t Screen Geek) has cut together a concept trailer for Freddy Vs. Pinhead, which pulls footage from a number of cult horror films including A Nightmare on Elm Street and its two sequels, The Dream Master and Final Nightmare, before adding a touch of Hellraiser into the mix with Hellbound and Clive Barker’s 1987 classic.

As for Stryder’s efforts, this is a

Humorous Animated Video Chronicles The Evolution Of Freddy Krueger

When it comes to horror fans – especially those who were around in the 1980’s – there seem to be three main series featuring iconic headliners that have stuck with us throughout the years: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Friday the 13th. Carried by Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees, respectively, lovers of each film franchise still debate which is superior to this day.

Personally, I have a harder time settling on which is numero uno the older I get, but the Nightmare line boasts the most amount of flicks that I enjoy, so I guess I’ll lean toward that one. Hey, not every entry into a series is going to be great – or even watchable. Plus, I owned the Nes and board games as a kid, so there’s the nostalgia factor.

While most of Freddy’s cinematic exploits came during the era of Reaganomics and “Where’s the Beef?

Blu-ray Review – Insidious: The Last Key (2018)

Insidious: The Last Key, 2018.

Directed by Adam Robitel.

Starring Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, and Ava Kolker.

Synopsis:

Parapsychologist Elise Rainier if forced to confront her past when she is called back to the house where she grew up to take on the ghosts that still reside there.

This is starting to get a bit confusing now as not only was James Wan responsible for the hugely successful The Conjuring franchise and its ever-increasing offshoots but before that he was responsible for kickstarting the Insidious series which, some may argue, is a more tempting well to keep drawing from than the semi-fictional exploits of Ed and Lorraine Warren. However, four films in, Wan is no longer directing and the timeline has gone to pot, with 2015’s Insidious: Chapter 3 acting as a prequel to the first two movies and now Insidious: The Last Key

Stylish Fan-Made Concept Trailer For A Nightmare On Elm Street Reboot Creeps Online

Though he’s been dogged by one creative setback after another, it’s really a question of when – rather than if – Freddy Krueger will return.

Last we reported, an online petition called for Bill Moseley, star of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses, to headline a possible reboot of Nightmare On Elm Street. Over on YouTube, though, one talented horror fan has cut together the next best thing: an eerie concept trailer that heralds the return of Krueger and his nightmarish reign.

It’s a decidedly artsy, low-key take on the clawed serial killer (h/t Bloody Disgusting), who defies death only to rack up a body count of his own. Having tackled the likes of Evil Dead and other horror franchises, Tommy Ross’ take on Elm Street ought to be celebrated, as it alludes to the reboot we all want to see.

Tony Was Right in ‘Age of Ultron:’ He Killed the Avengers

One of my favorite sequences in Avengers: Age of Ultron has always been the nightmare visions that Scarlet Witch gave to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Either as foreshadowing or just because, I’ve always been a sucker for a good dream sequence. Be it from A Nightmare on Elm Street or the world being eviscerated in Terminator 2: Judgment Day or even whatever the Hell was going on at the end of Mulholland Dr., I can never seem to get enough of them. And when it comes to nightmares, Wanda really outdid herself. Cap was tortured with a life in the past

Bill Moseley Would Love to Play Freddy Krueger, So Fans Started a Petition

There's no A Nightmare on Elm Street Reboot currently in the pipeline. But so what? We now have ourselves a new candidate to play the next Freddy Krueger. Bill Moseley, best known for his work in Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, has thrown his hat in the ring. Moseley wasn't necessarily out looking to make this happen, but when a fan recently brought the idea up to him on Twitter, he was all for it saying, "I would love to." The fan then asked if they would have his blessing if they started a petition to actually make it happen. The actor also responded quite positively to that idea, replying with two simple yet effective words.

"F*** yeah!"

And with that, there is now a petition online to have Bill Moseley play the next Freddy Krueger. Robert Englund originally brought the character to life in
