Unfriended: Dark Web – Review

Okay, so last Friday was the thirteenth, but that doesn’t stop the studios from releasing a new horror/thriller into the blockbuster-heavy Summer movie marketplace. Well the film itself is new, but it’s a follow-up to a modest hit from way back in 2015. So, is this set in a creepy old castle, or in a decaying and crumbling moldy mansion? No, those settings are passe and a tad tame for modern scary stories and their fans. The really terrifying backdrops aren’t “Camp Crystal Lake” or even the “House on Haunted Hill”. Here’s a hint: you’re there at this moment. Of course, the new hang-out for goons and monsters is the internet. It’s not a huge stretch to think of a web portal as a long hallway leading to a dungeon with tabs and ads popping up like zombies and ghouls. In this sequel (in

Scream Factory Announces Night Of The Demons Blu-ray Steelbook with New 4K Transfer And Angela Figure from Neca

Scream Factory is absolutely Killing It with their upcoming release announcements. Following yesterday's news of a Creepshow Collector's Edition Blu-ray, they've announced a Night of the Demons steelbook Blu-ray with a new 4K transfer and, if your order it from the Shout! Factory website, you get a limited edition Angela figure from Neca! This release is similar to what they did for Silent Night, Deadly Night and that one sold out pretty quickly. Being a Huge fan of both Night of the Demons and Neca's retro figure series, this was an instant buy for me. Here are all of the details and a look at the steelbook artwork and figure:

‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Gave Birth to a New Breed of Terror When It Premiered 50 Years Ago

‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Gave Birth to a New Breed of Terror When It Premiered 50 Years Ago
June 12 marks the 50th anniversary of “Rosemary’s Baby,” which still remains a gold standard for suspense movies. Though Ira Levin’s novel was a hit, the film adaptation “remained a big question mark until its initial screenings,” Variety wrote on May 29, 1968. The skepticism was because director Roman Polanski’s 1967 “The Fearless Vampire Killers” lost money, while star Mia Farrow was unproven at the box office. But Variety reviewer A.D. Murphy predicted it would be a success and praised the film’s “brilliant” work, above and below the line. With a budget of $3.2 million, the movie was one of the year’s biggest winners, bringing $12.3 million in rentals to Paramount. It was also subtly radical: While other 1960s shockers took place in isolated locations or creaky old homes, “Rosemary’s Baby” found horror in everyday urban settings. And after the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy that year,

Masters Of Horror Rewatch: William Malone’s “Fair-Haired Child”

We’re in the home stretch of Masters of Horror Season One, and many of the genre’s biggest names have already been checked off the list: Carpenter, Landis, Hooper, Gordon, Dante, Coscarelli, Argento. That brings us to William Malone, probably the first Master who’s not already a household name among horror fans. And while his episode isn’t among the strongest of the first season, he does conjure up one of the series’ scariest images and embraces the surreal in a way the other installments have not. His is a worthy entry in the Masters of Horror run.

Season One, Episode 9

“Fair-Haired Child”

Director: William Malone

Original Air Date: January 6, 2006

William Malone is a guy who has always been around horror, but you might not know his name immediately because he’s so often been behind the scenes and has only made a handful of films. A lifelong Monster Kid,

Night Of The Living Dead Prequel From George Romero’s Son Is Moving Forward

When George A. Romero died in July, the world mourned a legendary filmmaker whose work proved to be so influential that the repercussions of his 1968 feature length debut, Night Of The Living Dead, can still be seen in cinema today. Indeed, Romero is often heralded as the ‘father of the zombie film,’ and with good reason – that debut feature created an entirely new sub-genre within the realm of horror, and made it the one of the most groundbreaking and subversive releases of its time, to boot.

As you may know, Romero’s son, Cameron, is also a filmmaker, and has a prelude to his father’s movie in the works – titled Rise Of The Living Dead – about which he has just given an update.

To recap, the younger Romero began an Indiegogo campaign in 2014 to fund the production of his script, which was then titled Origins. That fundraising campaign was successful,

How Much Shock Can You Stand?

Ghosts are famous for their flexibility, spiraling through keyholes and up from the floorboards in search of their next mark. But movies about ghosts can be flexible too. Three classics of the genre, The Uninvited, House on Haunted Hill and The Innocents, demonstrate that there’s more than one way haunt a house.

These films never appeared on any triple bill that I know of, but I’d like to think they did, somewhere in some small town with a theater manager that knew a good scare when he saw it. How could the programmer resist it? Each film is united by a beautiful black and white sheen, eerie locales and their ability to scare the bejeezus out of you. But they’re also alike in their differences, coming at their specters from distinctly different vantage points.

1944’s The Uninvited, a three-hankie haunted house tale with a dysfunctional family subplot,

NYC Weekend Watch: Chinatown Cinema, ‘The Old Dark House,’ Tobe Hooper & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.


Chinatown-centered cinema will play in two separate series.

Museum of Modern Art

“Black Intimacy” offers a lens on black cinema.

Nitehawk Cinema

Tobe Hooper-wise, Texas Chainsaw and The Funhouse both screen, as does House on Haunted Hill.

Anthology Film Archives

Essential Cinema has a strong run.

Quad Cinema

James Whale’s The Old Dark House has been restored.

“New Horror

We are in the midst of a horror film resurgence. A significant group of contemporary horror films made in the past couple of years is reminiscent of the socio-political classics of the 1960s and 1970s in that they are boldly confronting the terrifying undercurrent of life today. Like their predecessors, these films tackle class, gender identity, and race in a way that shows us both where we are and how far we,

‘Circus Kane’ VOD Review

Stars: Tim Abell, Jonathan Lipnicki, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Nicole Fox, Jonathan Nation, Mike Jerome Putnam, Scott Thomas Reynolds, Bill Voorhees, Ted Monte, Victoria Konefal | Written by Sean Sellars, James Cullen Bressack, Zack Ward | Directed by Christopher Douglas-Olen Ray

A reclusive circus master invites a group of social media stars to his house of haunts. Anyone who can make it out before being scared into submission will earn $250,000 – but they soon learn they are not only competing for money, but also fighting for their lives…

At the beginning of Circus Kane, circus master Balthazar Kane (Tim Abell) says “Nothing is for free. If it’s too good to be true it probably is”. This would have been good advice for a group of naive social media stars. Offered $250,00 if they can make it through a new haunted house attraction without being scared into submission, it really does seem too good to be true.
