    “THE HALLOWEEN LEGION: THE GREAT GOBLIN INVASION” (Comic Review)

    There’s something strange happening in the little town of Woodland. Of course, this is one of those towns where something strange always happens, a spooky crossroad for all things that bump in the night. Such is the setting of THE HALLOWEEN LEGION, an all-ages story about a haunted circus, an unlucky city, and a Halloween-themed collection of heroes each imbued with unique powers. Don’t let the young reader tag fool you; with its clever writing and characters, the work is appealing for the weird kid in everyone, from new readers to experienced horror fans. THE HALLOWEEN LEGION: THE GREAT GOBLIN INVASION (now available from Dark Horse Comics) continues where the novella left off, this time pinning our heroes against invaders from space.

    “A FIELD IN ENGLAND” (TIFF Movie Review)

    With only a handful of movies, writer/director Ben Wheatley has already established himself as one of the finest filmmakers of his generation. Always toeing genre lines, his greatest achievement thus far was probably KILL LIST, a viscous hit man movie transformed into occult horror with one of the most disturbing finale twists since his obvious influence THE WICKER MAN. The genre journalists all immediately demanded that he dabble in horror again and now he kind of has with the twisted art house hallucinogen he calls A FIELD IN ENGLAND. Like KILL LIST, the movie is not pure horror, but it does boast some of the most disturbing images destined to flicker across screens this year.

    “SAVAGES CROSSING” (DVD Review)

    When WOLF CREEK came out back in 2005, it proved to be one of the most riveting and raw horror films in a long time. The main attraction that tied it all together was the central villainous performance by then-unknown actor John Jarratt. The promise of another horror film starring Jarratt, set in his native Australia, gave rise to great hopes and anticipation—which, unfortunately, are quickly shattered by SAVAGES CROSSING.

    “OCULUS” (TIFF Movie Review)

    Mike Flanagan’s debut picture ABSENTIA was something truly special: a quiet, slow burning indie horror film that betrayed its budgetary cramps at every turn and used an existing location—in this case, a creepy suburban tunnel—and made it into something nightmarish. Slow zooms, quiet spaces, ambiguity and minimalist music all coupled with better than average performances and the result was a work of practical nickel and dime perfection. If you haven’t seen it, do so immediately and watch in the dark…
