  • “THE REMAINS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    THE REMAINS is a ghost movie gloriously rich with gothic atmosphere. It’s setting is immaculate, featuring a haunted house that rivals the aesthetics of top budget Hollywood blockbusters. The dark, patchily lit Victorian home which protagonist John and his family moves into is the perfect home for its hostile, ghostly inhabitants. The way the ghosts glide in and out of shadows, skating through patches of light in the hallways, inspires something like reverence from an imagistic standpoint. The ghosts sprout into the frames with impeccable timing, appearing out of badly lit corners to genuinely startle. The portraying of restless, refreshingly creepy ghosts is brought back with flair in this film.

  • “FLYTRAP” (Film Review)

    ,,

    It’s the surreal acting that generates intrigue as FLYTRAP’s plot unfolds. Austrian actress Ina-Alice Kopp is beyond convincing as an alien pretending to be an attractive human woman. Her stellar performance is much warranted, as this hostage story is largely dependent on the developing relationship between the captive and the capturer. As for the captive, Jeremy Crutchley’s dryly humorous British professor is an entertaining character to be trapped in a Los Angeles suburban house with for one hour and twenty minutes.

  • Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival Presents: “EGOMANIAC” & The Meta Revenge Film!

    ,,

    Horror films have always excelled at exploring the fragility of sanity. No other genre ventures into the unspeakably dark crevices of the human mind with the naked curiosity that horror does. Nor does any genre make the descent into madness as much fun as it is with horror. Enhancing that fun factor is filmmaker Kate Shenton, who marries horror and comedy in her debut fictional film, EGOMANIAC, which will have it’s North American premiere on October 7th during the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Films About Killer Careers!

    ,,

    The work we accomplish in our careers is supposed to be what fulfills us. But isn’t there an uncomfortably obsessive quality to our work habits? Do the problems at work not have an unnervingly gum-like consistency, so that we find they’ve stuck to us and entered into our home with us? Think of the sleepless nights you’ve spent, dreading the presentation you must deliver tomorrow or the avalanche of paperwork that waits atop your desk. The fear of failure has become a modern day boogeyman, keeping us up at night with its whispering in the dark.

  • Modern giallo “FRANCESCA” Announces 3-Disc Blu-ray Release!

    ,

    Luciano and Nicolas Onetti’s 2015 FRANCESCA is resurrecting a horror sub genre less talked about than others. The Onneti brother’s film is of the giallo, a genre which parallels the crime and mystery category. But the giallo style boasts some added elements that afford it bragging rights when it comes to the horror culture. Firstly, giallo films are heavily populated with slashers and psychopaths. Such a demographic ensures a blood drenched landscape. The genre also has a sexual appetite that is, at it’s tamest, ravenous.

  • Exclusive Comments, New Photos: Mini-Creature Feature “MALACOSTRACA”!

    What’s the most frightening, horrifying thing you can imagine? Writer and director Charles Pieper challenged himself with this question, endeavoring to “imagine the most disturbing and uncomfortable thing” that he could. He hit the mental wall most horror addicts would likely find themselves against when pressed to decide on something that deeply terrifies them. “This was difficult for me, as I’d been a huge fan of horror my whole life and as such had seen, and unfortunately become desensitized, to so much…” Pieper told us. “So I dug deep mentally and out popped a crawdad.”

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Twisted Contemporary Fairy Tales

    ,,

    The line between horror and fantasy is so easily blurred that it can be hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Even children’s fairy tales, intended to be magical instead of scary, can be chill-inducing. Think of the living puppet Pinocchio, originally from Carlo Collodi’s 1883 children’s book. Pinocchio meets with a happy ending when he is turned into a human boy at the tale’s end. But are any of us really comfortable with inanimate objects like dolls coming to life in the first place?

  • Confined & Afraid: Why Horror Escape Rooms Work

    ,

    In an era where people automatically turn to their TV and laptop screens for entertainment, it seems to take a truly thrilling attraction to motivate people to leave their homes. As anyone near a metropolitan area may attest, interactive escape rooms just might fit that criteria. The in-person gaming trend that is the escape room started in Europe and Asia, and now, these rooms are spreading like wildfire in the US. And the best part?
