  • “BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    While horror and comedy seemingly can go hand-in-hand with relative ease, the truth is that making the two genres work together is a bit more difficult than one might expect. After all, audiences are accustomed to having comic relief in a horror movie or absurd pitch black situations in a comedy film, but mostly in small doses whereas a flat-out “horror comedy” is much more of a tonal balancing act. In a worst case scenario, you either wind up with a horror movie with desperate, tone-deaf comedy or a comedy that is equally as desperate by firmly grounding itself in spoof territory. However, in better cases, such as BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, both the tones work by serving both the horror and comedy as honestly as possible.

    ,

    As far back as people have been telling stories, there’s few places that have been as integral to horror tales than the woods. Whether its the setting of a black magic ritual by a coven of witches or a backwoods murderer in a mask and overalls, the forest is one of the few places that can invoke fear in even the most ardent of fright fans. Yet for a film like BACKCOUNTRY, the scariest aspect of the woods is nature itself: the unforgiving reality of a lost couple at the mercy of the wilderness and all of its inhabitants.

  • Week of Wes: “A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET”

    ,,

    When talking about the work and legacy of Wes Craven, where does one begin?

But when you’re talking about the influence of a horror maestro whose career spanned over 40 years, where else should you begin than with A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET?
