Horror Classics: Titles That Never Lose Their Power

dawn_of_the_dead

As fans of the horror genre, we find ourselves in something of a unique position. Where many so-called ‘Genre Classics’ in other areas of cinema and literature tend to date and lose some of their lustre (be it due to societal changes in the way issues are perceived, the technology used in the making of the films or whatever), while there are countless examples of horror films that have not only dated … Continue reading

Film Review: Sacred Flesh (2000)

sacred_flesh_4

SYNOPSIS:

The uncontrollable virginity of women has become as dangerous to the Church as uncontrollable sexuality. There are those who question all aspects of women and who see the female as the harbinger of the Devil, bewitching all men with her cunning.

REVIEW:

Sacred Flesh with its classy dialog and Shakespearian flair could easily be subtitled “Sister Mary wants to get laid!” There’s trouble brewing at the nuns of … Continue reading

Top 13 finest Bruce Campbell moments

mindwarp

It would be useless to try and rank Bruce Campbell’s films for two reasons: 1) There’d be whiners commenting about the merits of each of the Evil Dead films and why they should each be number one, and 2) You can’t quantify that much greatness. As such, even though I numbered them, this list is really in no particular order.

13. From Dusk Till Dawn II: Texas Blood Money (1999)
The best part of … Continue reading

Submit yourself to King Paul!

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the hero has become neutered in popular culture. There are too many sparkly vampires, self reflective, whiney turds and people besmirching the good name of pirate by gallivanting around, gesticulating dramatically, and generally acting like a drunken diva. Even the latest run of “superhero” movies are populated by men who are essentially worthless on their own, until some outside source grants them the ability to piss and moan about all … Continue reading

SCREAM 4 DVD Art

scream4boxart

Anchor Bay will be bringing us the SCREAM 4 DVD which is kind of strange since LIONSGATE just gave us the Blu-rays of the first three but so goes the wacky world of DVD distribution.

Anchor Bay always does a nice job on their discs so no problem there, it just greatly complicates ever putting out all the films as on package but I guess that’s only a problem if you give a crap.

Anyway, … Continue reading
