    Q&A: Director Blair Erickson on Government Experiment-inspired, “BANSHEE CHAPTER”

    After the nearly decade reign of the “torture porn” era, with yearly SAW entries and the deserved reign of the New French Extremity movement, there’s no surprise in the horror community welcoming suspense-driven genre films with open arms. While high tension, low-gore films like THE PURGE, THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 bringing in the highest profits the genre has seen in years, the atmospheric output of filmmakers such as Jim Mickle, Ti West and Ben Wheatley have brought independent horror to an almost classical style of slow burn storytelling. And yet, somewhere in the middle lies BANSHEE CHAPTER, an intense and psychological horror tale that’s spawned from history itself, citing the MK-Ultra experiments of the 50s and 60s as its source of inspiration.

    “TOM HOLLAND’S TWISTED TALES” (Web Series Review)

    Is it normal nowadays to approach new work from the revered masters of horror with hopeful caution? Following the underwhelming contributions by former heavy hitters in recent times, it’s not uncommon for a horror fan to cling to hope that there is still more fight in those old dogs. And as new filmmakers attempt (and mostly fail) to bring their iconic properties to a new audience via reboots, reimaginings and remakes, there’s even a sense of desperation that these one-time kings of the macabre may be the last hope at bringing old-school horror back to its roots.

    From the Editor: GOREZONE too hot for Canada!

    To our Canadian readers: It has come to our attention that our first triumphant issue of GOREZONE—#28, continuing the original run’s lineage—has been tardy in getting to our Canadian readers. In fact, in many cases, the magazine has yet to arrive up north at all. The reason? Apparently, GOREZONE is too much for the Mounties!

    “ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13” (Blu-ray Review)

    John Carpenter’s second feature (some might say his first “real” movie, after the expanded student production DARK STAR) set a template that served the director throughout his subsequent career. ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 is a precursor to the siege scenarios in THE THING, PRINCE OF DARKNESS and others, with attackers as inscrutable and unstoppable as HALLOWEEN’s Michael Myers. And it still stands on its own as a remarkably assured piece of work.

    Audiences will “BEWARE THE NIGHT” a lot sooner

    Even though 2013 has been a successful year for horror overall, Sony Pictures saw underwhelming results for its high-profile CARRIE remake and the YA supernatural adventure THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES. Perhaps taking a lesson from Warner Bros., which had a massive summer success with THE CONJURING, Sony has moved BEWARE THE NIGHT, the next genre offering from SINISTER director Scott Derrickson (pictured above), six months up from its previously scheduled date.
