  • NYC! Win A Mondo LP at Next Week’s “BLACK SWAN” Screening at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    ,

    It’s no surprise to the majority of fright fans that the Academy Awards and the horror genre don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand. Horror films are notably less prolific come award season than somber dramas, and often times, these films have to permanently adopt the “thriller” subgenre to even be considered for an award, such as SILENCE OF THE LAMBS). Yet sometimes, a tried-and-true horror title happens to fall through the cracks and grab Oscar gold, and one of the last films to do so was Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN. So it’s exciting for this writer to hear that not only will NYC’s current genre hub Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers will be bringing BLACK SWAN back to the big screen next week as a part of their Mondo x Chiller series, but two lucky attendees will be going home with a limited edition soundtrack LP!

  • New Artwork, Details: Vestron Video’s “C.H.U.D. II” and “RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3” Blu-rays!

    ,

    As a proponent of Blu-ray collector culture, this writer feels ever closer to the finish line when it comes to the most desired horror titles in HD. While there are a select few essential hold-outs that are still not on Blu-ray anywhere in the world- films like WISHMASTER, THE BIRTHDAY, and THE MANGLER, for instance, the marketplace has done a phenomenal job of meeting the demands of the fervent horror fanbase. For instance, the recent inspired resurrection of Vestron Video, which is doing a saintly job of bringing campy cult classics to Blu-ray. Now, the boutique label is unveiling the new artwork and details for their final releases for 2016: C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3!

  • Fantastic Fest 2016: “THE VOID” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Going into Fantastic Fest 2016, THE VOID was easily my most anticipated premiere of the festival. I’ve been a long-time fan of co-writers/directors Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski from their work with filmmaking collective Astron-6. FATHER’S DAY and MANBORG are among this writer’s favorite films in recent memory. I pull up the LAZER GHOSTS 2 and BIO-COP shorts in an attempt to indoctrinate newcomers on a regular basis. So a chance to see what some of these talents could bring to the realm of sincere horror films was immediately appealing to me. I contributed to the Indiegogo campaign; I’ve got the t-shirt, the poster, etc. All this to say: I walked into the premiere with lofty expectations.

  • “THE REMAINS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    THE REMAINS is a ghost movie gloriously rich with gothic atmosphere. It’s setting is immaculate, featuring a haunted house that rivals the aesthetics of top budget Hollywood blockbusters. The dark, patchily lit Victorian home which protagonist John and his family moves into is the perfect home for its hostile, ghostly inhabitants. The way the ghosts glide in and out of shadows, skating through patches of light in the hallways, inspires something like reverence from an imagistic standpoint. The ghosts sprout into the frames with impeccable timing, appearing out of badly lit corners to genuinely startle. The portraying of restless, refreshingly creepy ghosts is brought back with flair in this film.

  • PUFF 2016 Presents: “DEAD BODY” and the Modern Murder Mystery, plus Giveaway/Ticket Announcement!

    ,,

    For almost as long as the horror genre has been around, so has the murder mystery subgenre. Whether it’s tale of dubious claims on grand fortunes or veiled metaphors for sexual repression, murder mysteries often depicted enigmatic lunatics that were often revealed to be the character you’d least suspect. And as the horror genre evolved, the murder mystery would later become a major element to many other subgenres, including the slasher genre (ala Wes Craven’s SCREAM) or serial killer thrillers. Sadly, the genre has gone somewhat dormant as of late, with possession and supernatural tales reigning supreme at the box office.

    For fans of horror and heavy metal, there’s no musical act that bleeds into both genres as wicked and as weirdly as GWAR.
