Danielle Harris’ directorial debut AMONG FRIENDS will soon
have a chance to make many more, as the movie has been picked up for Stateside
Although many films in the 1970s dealt with the horror of
the Vietnam War and the affected soldiers’ difficult return to “normal” life in
the United States (LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, DEATHDREAM, TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE),
BLOOD FREAK (playing tonight at Nitehawk Cinema's VHS Vault!) certainly isn’t one of them.
There was a panic in the fan community of
THE WALKING DEAD when it was revealed showrunner Frank Darabont and several
writers were not going to be continuing on the show. Would it rise or fall
without them? Five episodes into season three and I think
the question has definitively been answered.
Before we get our full update of Fango’s DVD/Blu-ray List
posted, there’s one more batch of new dates to tell you about, with
accompanying cover art for some of the discs.
It’s kind of fitting that this the second of our
disc-release update items today, as one of the movies covered concerns a
different kind of #2…
As the week winds down and the storms have passed, we’ve
been putting together a big update of our DVD/Blu-ray List, with a bunch of
news and updates to share. First up are a pair of genre-skirting features from
Magnolia Home Entertainment.
After projecting a release date of next August, Dimension Films' SATANIC is casting up and revealing plot.
It remains surprising how prevalent zombies have become, gripping all manner of pop culture so much so that 2013's big zombie releases are a global action epic and a romantic comedy. Even more surprising, guess which one looks better.
Derek Cole’s REVENANT is a little film that hopefully won’t
get lost in the shuffle. It’s nothing at all like the recent
vampire/zombie/horror/comedy/thriller thingie THE REVENANT; it’s actually more
akin to SINISTER, as a writer moves into a haunted house, scary stuff ensues
and a mystery must be solved in order for the writer to survive. But REVENANT
is its own beast, and deserves the chance to stand alone.
John Cusack (also in THE PAPERBOY, one of my favorite films
of the year) and Jennifer Carpenter (ever the scene-stealer in Showtime’s
DEXTER) star in THE FACTORY, a semi-horror movie made under producer Joel
Silver’s Dark Castle banner. A SILENCE OF THE LAMBS-meets-HARDCORE-wannabe
thriller tinged with blood, it follows an obsessed father on the hunt for his
missing teenage daughter.
“A big novelty surprise comes with each purchase,” Peter
Cushing slyly says as The Proprietor in FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE (1973). If he had
a Snidely Whiplash mustache to twirl, he would. Were he a lesser actor, he
would rub his palms together with evil glee. But he’s Peter f’n Cushing, and
all he needs is a glance. Even from across the decades and, well, beyond the
grave, he’s still got gravitas.
Most home invasions have to do with taking people’s
property, but the villains of IN THEIR SKIN are after something more. The film,
originally titled REPLICAS (see review here),
arrives in theaters this Friday, and its creators and cast discuss it below.
