    “LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE” (Film Review)

    What is it about the anthology format that sings a siren’s call to so many aspiring horror filmmakers, plumping their imaginations and then luring their visions to sit in bite-sized confines? Despite having only a handful of truly classic examples to lionize, there is no shortage of independent attempts at reviving a storytelling structure longsince fallen out of fashion in the studio system. Canadian indie LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE is the one of the latest darts flung hopefully towards a bulls-eye occupied by the finest of episodic frights: TRILOGY OF TERROR, TALES FROM THE CRYPT (the Amicus picture), CREEPSHOW, TRICK ‘R TREAT, and precious few others.

    “NEKROMANTIK 2” (Blu-ray Review)

    Not long ago, we were blessed with a pretty stocked Cult Epics Blu-ray of German filmmaker Jörg Buttgereit’s infamous NEKROMANTIK (review), which made the world ill upon its 1987 arrival and rightfully retains its notoriety. Having acquired more experience behind the camera and further fascination with those who prefer sex with the dead after reading an interview with a female necrophile, Buttgereit decided a sequel would be a worthwhile endeavor.

    Have the “INSIDE” Duo Found Their “LEATHERFACE”?

    Though the sentiment in the horror community has been unsurprisingly negative towards the idea of another TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE movie following the dreadful (yet successful) TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, the idea that the supremely talented Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be guiding the film is always somewhat of a reassurance. But even that aspect haven’t stopped fans from rallying against a Leatherface origin story; after all, wasn’t the character at his scariest when the closest thing we had to backstory was a shot of a big metal door? Nevertheless, the show is still going on, and now, according to The Wrap, Bustillo and Maury may have found the most infamous member of the Sawyer clan.

    Reitman, Aykroyd Team For ‘Ghostcorp’; Expanding “GHOSTBUSTERS” Franchise

    There are few upcoming genre films as divisive as the upcoming all-female GHOSTBUSTERS remake from Paul Feig, which essentially would discontinue the existing GHOSTBUSTERS storyline and start from scratch with a greater eye on horror. Yet many eyebrows were raised when word surfaced that the likes of Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum had been speaking to Sony about GHOSTBUSTERS, and that Aykroyd still believed the previous GHOSTBUSTERS films could be expanded upon on the big screen. And as it turns out, those eyebrows were not raised in vain as Deadline has reported that Sony will be teaming with Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd to develop Ghostcorp, a production branch solely devoted to expanding the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise, including with a male-centric counterpart to Feig’s all-female flick.
