  • Stream to Scream: “PROXY”

    ,,

    If there’s anything that can definitively be said about a horror film like PROXY, it would be that the film is not for everyone. For those who appreciate more scare-based, supernatural outings, PROXY is not the film for you, and will likely test your threshold for transgressive content. On the flip side of the coin, those whose horror obsession filters down to chasing the dragon that is shocking content, PROXY might be a bit too far into the contemplative, artistic side for those merely expecting bloody viscera. However, for those whom PROXY does latch its claws onto, the film is a mesmerizing, poetic experience that few films can rival, provoking ideological thoughts and a jaw-dropping narrative that you otherwise might not find in even the majority of independent fright fare.

  • “THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    For cult-minded fright fanatics, there will always be an unironic spot in our hearts for old, bonkers sci-fi horrors of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Often amalgamations between psychological thrillers and creature features, these films preyed upon the fears of progressive science as a breeding ground for deviancy and god complexes with frequently insane results. Luckily for those who adore these strange cinematic time capsules, one of the craziest and surprisingly well-crafted entries from this era has made its way to the high definition world courtesy of Scream Factory: THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE!

  • FANGO Flashback: “BUBBA HO-TEP”

    ,,

    One of the most common complaints this writer hears from hardcore horrorheads is that contemporary scare fare lacks the heart of their predecessors. While there’s always been mean, merciless horror throughout the years, especially those caught in the crossfire of the slasher booms, there is a fair amount of truth to that sentiment. Though that doesn’t mean there aren’t impressively crafted or genuinely terrifying horror offerings nowadays, the organic sense of adventure, character and justice is much less common these days as opposed to the fright films of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Yet perhaps that makes modern horror with that old school heart and soul much more valuable to die-hard fans, which in turn crafts a specific legacy from which a film can gain a second life.

  • The Year in Horror, 2015: Ken’s Top 10 Horror Films!

    ,,,

    Make no mistake: 2015 was the year of horror television. Between stellar seasons of PENNY DREADFUL, SALEM, ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, HANNIBAL and THE WALKING DEAD, there was no place scarier or more fun than the small screen. When you add in the impressive terror titles making their way to high definition this year, the big screen fare of 2015 felt unfortunately like an afterthought. Nevertheless, 2015 did offer a respectable amount of haunting fright fare in the cinemas, much of which still sticks with this writer to this day.
