    Last Night of the Scarecrow Video?

    Earlier this month, it was announced that Blockbuster Video would close its remaining stores for good, having been taken out by the plentiful Redbox kiosks and streaming operations such as Netflix. I was not saddened in the least by this news; over the last two decades, Blockbuster helped drive many independently owned rental stores out of business. I consider myself lucky that I did not have to go through life only having Blockbuster to rely on for my movie-watching needs, because in my neighborhood exists one of the biggest rental libraries in the world, Seattle’s Scarecrow Video. But in a world where the destroyer of video stores has been destroyed, Scarecrow is struggling to stay afloat.

    Q&A: “CONTRACTED” Star Najarra Townsend

    Debuting on VOD and in select theaters tomorrow from IFC Films, CONTRACTED follows a young woman whose momentary sexual indiscretion leads to consequences more vile and terrifying than she could ever imagine. As with all body horror, the concept is only as valuable as the cast; luckily for CONTRACTED, the affliction is suffered by actress Najarra Townsend, who handles her character Samantha’s personal drama just as well as the horror festering inside her.

    Q&A: Director Blair Erickson on Government Experiment-inspired, “BANSHEE CHAPTER”

    After the nearly decade reign of the “torture porn” era, with yearly SAW entries and the deserved reign of the New French Extremity movement, there’s no surprise in the horror community welcoming suspense-driven genre films with open arms. While high tension, low-gore films like THE PURGE, THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 bringing in the highest profits the genre has seen in years, the atmospheric output of filmmakers such as Jim Mickle, Ti West and Ben Wheatley have brought independent horror to an almost classical style of slow burn storytelling. And yet, somewhere in the middle lies BANSHEE CHAPTER, an intense and psychological horror tale that’s spawned from history itself, citing the MK-Ultra experiments of the 50s and 60s as its source of inspiration.

    Q&A: “SHIVER” Director Julian Richards

    What can be said about serial killers on screen that hasn’t been said before? The subgenre has become a difficult one to break ground in nowadays, and rather than focus on motivation, many directors have turned to gimmicks, often at the expense of the audience patience and interest. But sometimes, the challenge has inspired ambitious directors to prove this well isn’t dried up just yet, and one such filmmaker is SHIVER’s Julian Richards.

    Q&A: “MACABRE” Writer/Director Timo Tjahjanto

    The word “rediscovery” is not new to the horror genre, as once a great fright filmmaker enters the cultural awareness, it’s only appropriate that fans dig deeper into their filmography. Sometimes, you find the early work of modern-day master-class auteurs; other times, you discover promising missteps with flashes of greatness interspersed throughout. And occasionally, you come across the origins of a specific perspective, revealing underlying themes, distinctive visuals or simply a penchant for bloody madness.
