    “THE AMITYVILLE HORROR TRILOGY” (Scream Factory Blu-ray Review)

    For a movie that spawned at least eight sequels and a remake, 1979’s THE AMITYVILLE HORROR should be better. To be fair, I’m not the biggest fan of haunted house films, but I know a good one when I see it (POLTERGEIST, THE HAUNTING, etc.), and the film has a few issues that just can’t be overcome.  And at just a hair under two hours, it can’t even be considered ideal seasonal viewing; you can get in a better haunted house movie with time leftover for an episode of TALES FROM THE CRYPT or TWILIGHT ZONE.  However, for its fans (or those with more time to kill), Scream Factory has you covered, bringing the original film and its first two sequels to Blu-ray for the first time, with some new bonus features to sweeten the deal.

    Horror From The BBC: “IN THE FLESH” and “THE SECRET OF CRICKLEY HALL” (TV Review)

    The ever-dependable English seem to always deliver quality when it comes to filmed drama—it’s in their blood, after all—and that goes for their unique, atmospheric brand of horror as well. We’ll save you the history lesson, but suffice to say that the British sensibility is so steeped in darkness, in grey, brooding, foreboding gloom and spectral skin chilling, that their genre product is almost always a cut above any other culture’s; two new small screen sculpted releases out October 8th from BBC Home Entertainment exemplify that plain truth.

    “AHS: COVEN” aims to educate with Voodoo featurette

    As with the anticipation of AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s second season ASYLUM, COVEN has been preceded by a deluge of atmospheric, aesthetically-thrilling teasers that have culminated in a main titles sequence packed with the sort of black magick eeriness witches and their rituals evoke in our minds. This year, however, the main subjects of AMERICAN HORROR STORY are rooted in more real-world religious practices. To that end, both for context and an introduction to the world COVEN takes place in, a brief featurette attempts to educate the viewer on Voodoo, its mystic air and elegance, and dispel some of the more negative perceptions.

    John Fallon talks atmospheric crowdfunder, “THE SHELTER”

    In the rapidly changing world of independent horror, it’s not uncommon for fans to see crowdfunding campaigns from uncompromising directors looking to make their passion project. Whether or not these projects have anything new to offer the genre crowd outside of the atypical blood and guts remains to be seen, but if there’s one thing that’s to be known, it’s that those who know horror know what they want from their projects and are willing to pay out of pocket to see it happen. However, amongst these projects is one from one of horror’s most prolific fans and critics, John Fallon (a/k/a “Arrow” from Arrowinthehead.com), who is looking to crowdfund a new horror project unlike anything you’ve seen before.
