    Long Live the New Flesh: Tape Heads, Romancing VHS with Vultra Video

    It’s Friday night, 1988 and you are at the video store with your family. You browse the aisles and you can’t help but be drawn to the lurid images on the VHS box covers in the section your parents won’t let you rent from. As they wander the New Releases, you pretend to be going to the Family section but when the coast is clear, you cut into a dash to Horror. Blood. Skulls. Mutated toxic maniacs. Chainsaw-wielding psychopaths. Monsters and mayhem. You thrill to the covers and wonder what exactly is lurking in these strange films – films so shocking your parents would probably throw a fit if they saw you looking at them, which only makes the experience more thrilling. Since you can’t see the movies, you spend the whole car ride home making them up in your imagination.

    “FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY” (Tribeca Movie Review)

    Fans old enough to have unsuspectingly walked into NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD or THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE during their original runs have described feeling like they were in the hands of madmen, directors who had gone off the deep end and were taking the audience with them. I won’t make claims to future similar classic status for FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY just yet, but parts of it gave me a similar lunatics-have-overtaken-the-asylum sensation.

    “DARK TOUCH” (Tribeca Movie Review)

    In DARK TOUCH, European director and provocateur Marina de Van transfers her now recurring theme of identity crisis and unsure footing from grown women to a young girl still in pre-pubescence. It’s this pre-pubescence that’s taken terrifying advantage of; the repercussions of which manifest themselves in a fury of psychic power and telekinesis. Of course, CARRIE will be and is a touchstone for many in the case of this Ireland-set horror story, but whereas that tale explores the fear of oncoming womanhood, DARK TOUCH is an unnerving look at it forced on someone far, far too young.

    Q&A: “THE LORDS OF SALEM” Actresses Meg Foster and Dee Wallace

    The city of Salem, Massachusetts probably would have stayed anonymous through history if it wasn’t for the notorious witch trails that took place there between 1691-92. Cinema has frequently found inspiration in these infamous events, and filmmaker/musician Rob Zombie returns to the screen this Friday with THE LORDS OF SALEM, perhaps his darkest and most audacious work to date, with veteran genre stars Meg Foster (from John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE, pictured above with Zombie) and Dee Wallace (from Joe Dante’s THE HOWLING and others) among his cast.

    Mood Lighting: Five films to prime you for “THE LORDS OF SALEM”

    THE LORDS OF SALEM is both undoubtedly a Rob Zombie film and yet something of a departure. Aesthetically more mannered and surreal, the director brings his assuredness to what amounts to a less gritty, more heightened and composed peer into evil and a groundswell of negative energy. It’s lush and stylish and all of the similar sounding words that describe a trippy lightheadedness best experienced on as big a screen as possible.
