  • “THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    PLANET OF THE APES director Franklin J. Schaffner’s chilling 1978 programmer THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL is one of those glorious international, big budget melting pot thrillers whose presence has long since ebbed, having peaked in the 1970’s before fading into oblivion. But the film, based on a wild same-named novel by ROSEMARY’S BABY author Ira Levin, is miles removed from DOCTOR ZHIVAGO, WHERE EAGLES DARE; BOYS is a horror movie, plain and simple. The film follows Levin’s interest in perverted child birth while it exemplifies Schaffner’s deft hand at wrangling massive casts (who again, speak a wide array of languages), multiple locations and managing to make sprawling pictures that are both supremely epic while claustrophobically intimate. And though it wasn’t a financial success upon release, the film has found a devoted cult via TV airings and later, the VHS rental market. And now, Shout! Factory has brought it to Blu-ray.

  • “POKER NIGHT” (Film Review)

    ,,

    There’s a certain beauty in independent films that the VOD/STV market has instilled in the viewing experience that otherwise is only found around film festivals, and that’s the absence of expectation. Looking at the promotional material for POKER NIGHT, the film could be confused for a masked slasher film or a late stage addition into the torture porn subgenre. And yet with little in the way of hype or criticism before the screening, I couldn’t really nail down what the film would be and, more importantly, where it would go.

  • Scream Factory Doubles Down on “SLEEPAWAY CAMP” Sequels

    ,

    As a horror fan, I often feel like there’s a rather harsh divide between the fans of SLEEPAWAY CAMP and its sequels. After the release of RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP, the only sequel canonical to the original film, it seems that fans of the campy Pamela Springsteen-starring SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS and SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: UNHAPPY CAMPERS have been at odds with the much darker and nastier Robert Hiltzik-directed entries. Nevertheless, to the horror community worldwide, the Blu-ray release of SLEEPAWAY CAMP by Scream Factory left fans wondering if the company would follow suit with the sequels, and now they’ve got their answer as Scream Factory announced on their Facebook page they’re releasing both films on Blu-ray in 2015!

    ,

    Out of all the films releasing in 2014, there’s few that are as anticipated among the horror crowd as CRIMSON PEAK, the welcome return to Gothic horror from Guillermo del Toro. Yet while there’s been little in the way of previews for CRIMSON PEAK, excluding a teaser that played exclusively at San Diego Comic Con, fans at large are finally getting a chance to see what lays inside the titular haunted estate as The Film Stage debuted the first image of Jessica Chastain from the film.
