    “POKER NIGHT” (Film Review)

    There’s a certain beauty in independent films that the VOD/STV market has instilled in the viewing experience that otherwise is only found around film festivals, and that’s the absence of expectation. Looking at the promotional material for POKER NIGHT, the film could be confused for a masked slasher film or a late stage addition into the torture porn subgenre. And yet with little in the way of hype or criticism before the screening, I couldn’t really nail down what the film would be and, more importantly, where it would go.

    Scream Factory Doubles Down on “SLEEPAWAY CAMP” Sequels

    As a horror fan, I often feel like there’s a rather harsh divide between the fans of SLEEPAWAY CAMP and its sequels. After the release of RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP, the only sequel canonical to the original film, it seems that fans of the campy Pamela Springsteen-starring SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS and SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: UNHAPPY CAMPERS have been at odds with the much darker and nastier Robert Hiltzik-directed entries. Nevertheless, to the horror community worldwide, the Blu-ray release of SLEEPAWAY CAMP by Scream Factory left fans wondering if the company would follow suit with the sequels, and now they’ve got their answer as Scream Factory announced on their Facebook page they’re releasing both films on Blu-ray in 2015!

    Out of all the films releasing in 2014, there’s few that are as anticipated among the horror crowd as CRIMSON PEAK, the welcome return to Gothic horror from Guillermo del Toro.

    Adult Swim Creeps Again With New ‘Infomercial’, “UNEDITED FOOTAGE OF A BEAR”

    Last month, FANGORIA reported on Adult Swim’s first shocking “Infomercial” short, which now apparently functiona as an 11-minute block at 4 a.m. where different comedic artists can express whatever weird, absurd or sinister impulses their hearts desired. And while TOO MANY COOKS was a viral sensation that bled genuine horror love with a sense of bizarre humor, their latest addition takes the horror ball and runs with it, making the comedy an understatement built in the conceit more so than the execution.

    The Year in Horror, 2014: Rebekah McKendry’s Top 10 Horrors

    I noted in my FANGORIA Top 10 List from 2013 that fans were shifting from big studio pictures to the indie markets. In 2014 this pattern not only continued, it exploded! While major studio pics like AS ABOVE, SO BELOW, THE QUIET ONES, and OUIJA struggled to impress genre fans, indie flicks delivered top notch scares without the big budgets and massive P&A campaigns.
