    The Year in Horror, 2013: Sam’s Top Films

    2013: a year in which I loved a lot of films, but treasured only one.  I’ve carried STOKER with me through all twelve months, having been swept up in Chan-wook Park’s artistry on a very early January morning in Park City, Utah.

Such bloodshed is on display in the latest teaser from backers, the legendary Nikkatsu.

    THE KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM. Merely mentioning the name will raise eyebrows amongst ardent horror fans, as the Joe Lynch film has taken its place amongst the more prolific of the unreleased genre curiosities. However, XLerator Media has announced the a long awaited VOD release on February 11th, with the film being optioned for theatrical exhibition via the crowd-sourcing request site TUGG. And for those wondering, the film will sadly be the edited “producer’s cut” which stirred up controversy earlier this summer when Lynch himself took to social media in protest.

    SCREAM Factory Awakens The “PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE”

    At this point, I’ve become convinced that every other day besides Christmas, Santa Claus works in Acquisitions for SHOUT! Factory. There’s no other reasonable explanation for the consistent amount of joy that is doled out regularly under their SCREAM Factory banner. This latest news is no exception. The SCREAM Factory Facebook page let loose that the brand will release Brian De Palma’s superb cult classic, THE PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, on Blu-ray for the first time in North America.
