  • BiFan 2016: “VILLMARK ASYLUM” (Film Review)

    ,,

    The problem with playing it safe in the horror genre is the risk of becoming too damn predictable. Sure, interesting characters, solid FX, and effective scares can go a long way for a simple, if terribly familiar narrative. But in the case of VILLMARK ASYLUM, staying risk-free costs the film any truly scary surprises, offering a sadly uninspired cinematic affair that pales in comparison to its 2003 predecessor.

  • BiFan 2016: “WE ARE THE FLESH” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to transgressive cinema, there are imitators and then there is the real deal. In the former category falls films that too often rely on their inspirations and influences, painting a hollow recreation of yesteryear’s shocking cinema. Likewise, imitators also will often go for the easy shocks and “hot-button” subject matter without exploring what they’re saying, why they’re saying it, and- most importantly- how it fits organically within the story they’re telling. Hence, when you do encounter the real deal, it’s something you feel from every frame of the film as it breaks down your expectations and barrels into your comfort zone with truly disturbing, provocative storytelling.

  • FilmRise Nabs “SEOUL STATION”; Shudder Gets U.S. Rights for “GRUDGE”/”RING” Crossover

    ,

    In recent years, it feels that Asian horror cinema has certainly become less present as the marketplace has changed into the day-and-date model. Whereas Japanese and Korean cinema once were the darlings of the video store era, there hasn’t been many runaway critical or commercial highlights making a splash among U.S. horror fans as of late. However, with the Korean zombie epic TRAIN TO BUSAN currently carving out a name for itself critically and commercially around the world, it seems Asian horror is set to make a comeback in a big way, with a pair of recent updates offering two chances for U.S. horror fans to check out some exciting fright fare from East Asia.

  • Jennifer Lynch, “WALKING DEAD” Producer Team for CBS Films’ “HELLFEST”!

    ,

    For fans of THE WALKING DEAD, tracing back some of the series’ strongest episodes can lead to some interesting discoveries. While FX guru Greg Nicotero has become one of the massively popular show’s auteur directors as of late, several of the most shocking, suspenseful, and well-crafted episodes can be credited to Ernest Dickerson and Jennifer Lynch, both who were independent genre filmmakers who have successfully become television’s strongest directorial assets.

  • Horror Satire “FOUND FOOTAGE 3D” Unveils A Twisted Trailer!

    ,

    There will always be certain phrases and words that will cause horror fans to raise a brow to new genre projects, and two of them are certainly “found footage” and “3D.” While both have had their peaks when done right, but those projects often come between a mountain of underwhelming and downright poor attempts to exploit those conceit’s popularity. But much like SCREAM rewrote the slasher genre with a meta twist, a new terror title looks to rejuvenate both found footage and 3D by reflecting on what doesn’t work…and incorporating everything that does. Now, the aptly titled horror satire FOUND FOOTAGE 3D has debuted its first trailer and festival dates, which you can see for yourself below!

  • “BLACK MONDAY MURDERS #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    There is nothing more worth killing over than money and power. While some may argue that there is more to life than such petty things as arbitrarily assigned values to paper and metal, the families in BLACK MONDAY MURDERS might have some strongly worded arguments; especially when the demon Mammon is concerned. Image Comics highly-anticipated financial horror comic may seem like an odd addition to the growing pathos of horror work, it’s the addition of black magic to the already shady underworld of banking institutions that allows it to earn its place with its arcane brethren. Throw in a determined detective with his own ties to the occult and you got the noir twist for a book that’s already halfway to creating its own genre.
