  • Stanley Film Festival ’15: The Plight of the Audience Picture

    ,

    “There’s nothing good at the movies anymore.” It’s a sentence that I’ve heard so much, and that film fans have grown so accustomed to, that it almost pains me to type it here. But nonetheless, it’s a statement many in the genre believe, and it’s perhaps the reason more and more people are turning to TV, VOD, Streaming Services and piracy for their entertainment fix. After all, the price of moviegoing goes up as big budget fodder, or in horror’s case, micro-budget jump scare fare fills the auditoriums, and art houses try to host the most buzzworthy independent titles just to keep a roof on their head.

  • Stream to Scream: “DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD”

    ,,

    While generally well-received, financially successful and, at the very least, having earned the notoriety of “that nazi zombie movie” among contemporary horror fans (over the likes of OUTPOST and SHOCKWAVES), DEAD SNOW has been a rather divisive movie among horror audiences. Some fright fans took Tommy Wirkola’s Scandinavian scare fare in stride, praising the fun approach to the material and splattery action that would cement it as a modern midnight movie. Others, however, were less impressed; whether it be using the “harbinger” trope or aping too much of Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD aesthetics, harder critics donned it too derivative for its own good. Thus when a sequel was announced, the response was a surprising balance between cheers and apprehension, even if the time since its premiere had garnered DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD a mounting sense of goodwill.

  • “THE GREEN INFERNO” To Consume Audiences September 25th

    ,

    After nearly a year since the film was abruptly pulled from cinemas, Eli Roth’s cannibal opus THE GREEN INFERNO will see the light of day after all. Roth made the official announcement earlier today, detailing that the film will see a 1,000 theater release and a digital marketing platform (much akin to the expanded release of IT FOLLOWS) via Blumhouse Productions, who will team with Universal Pictures and High Top Releasing to distribute the film via Blumhouse’s BH Tilt label. This will also guarantee that THE GREEN INFERNO will hit theaters before Roth’s Sundance chiller KNOCK KNOCK, which Lionsgate aims to release later this year as well.

  • “LET US PREY” (Film Review)

    ,,

    The mid-’00s were a very strange time in horror; the J-horror remake movement had gone stale, while the so-called “torture porn” scene exploded side by side with the New French Extremity movement. There was a very specific theme of sadism that ran through the genre on almost every level, with horror focusing on anguish and suffering whether or not the story truly supported it. Thus, many films of this time remain far from memorable, as even though the intention to push the barriers of good taste was pursued, there was so little payoff to make the experience truly gratifying. And when watching Brian O’Malley’s LET US PREY, that era came to mind in a different light altogether: creepy, brutal and gripping, I felt as if I was watching what those films had so often sought to become yet with the substance they so often forgotten.
