    30 for 31: “DEAD OF NIGHT” (1977)

    Like many great discoveries throughout history, I stumbled upon DEAD OF NIGHT completely by accident. I was actually trying to hunt down a copy of Simon Hunter’s DEAD OF NIGHT from 1999, and knowing how rare and expensive that film could be, I headed to my favorite video store in hopes of renting it instead of having to plunk down over $50 for a copy. I asked the owner (who is pretty much a living version of Internet Movie Database), if they had DEAD OF NIGHT (1999), and to my surprise, they had hundreds of movie called “Dead of Night”!

    Q&A: Director Seth Grossman on “INNER DEMONS”

    What qualifies a director as right for his/her specific job as a filmmaker? Is it technical skill, as in being able to create an exciting or provocative visual rhythm from any given camera? Is it endurance, as in being able to keep cool and confident under the pressures of the hustle-and-bustle on-set experience?

But it’s Grossman’s work on the reality show INTERVENTION which makes him the right man to direct INNER DEMONS, a found footage horror that presents elements of possession horror through the eyes of a recovery reality show. Talking to FANGORIA, Grossman opened up on INNER DEMONS and what it’s like to create horror from a hot-button issue…

    “SEE NO EVIL 2″ (Screamfest Movie Review)

    In true horror sequel tradition, SEE NO EVIL 2 picks up just moments after the first’s finale. The crazed killer with a hellacious hook, Jacob Goodnight (Glenn ‘Kane’ Jacobs), has been skewered through the eye and thrown through a window. Scraping up the gory remains of him and his victims, the ambulance drivers make a rather gruesome delivery to the local morgue. This puts a real hitch in the birthday plans of coroner Amy (Danielle Harris), who’s forced to work the graveyard shift. But that doesn’t stop the celebration… Amy’s buddies bring cake and booze to the morgue and party like there’s no tomorrow. Which, of course, there isn’t when a certain surprise stiff shows up.

    “PARLOR” (Screamfest Movie Review)

    In this mostly miserable mash-up between MIAMI INK and HOSTEL, a group of drunk, horny teens living it up in Lithuania fall prey to a tattooed madman and his evil assistant. Pretty much anyone who’s seen a horror movie knows that an Eastern European Bloc party is not going to end well… and of course, that’s what we’re hoping for when the lights in the theater go down. But when it doesn’t start well, that’s trouble.
