    “JU-ON” Lives On, New “GRUDGE” Film Underway in Japan

    Takashi Shimizu’s iconic Japanese horror series JU-ON (THE GRUDGE) has yielded nine films (six Japanese, three American), as well as novels and a video game. Despite the end of the J-Horror boom, its infamous ghost rattle remains eerie and it’s entirely likely any of the pictures left a lasting impression or served as an introduction to something larger to plenty of viewers. With almost five years having passed since the last installment (WHITE GHOST/BLACK GHOST), it’s been revealed JU-ON will return with OWARI NO HAJIMARI (THE BEGINNING OF THE END) from writer/director Ochiai Masayuki (INFECTION).

    SXSW ’14: Desperation, Transformation and The Occult in “STARRY EYES”

    The stink of Hollywood desperation. The sight of body horror. The aura of the occult. STARRY EYES kind of sells itself. Then there’s its cast, including Pat Healy (CHEAP THRILLS), Noah Segan (DEADGIRL), Amanda Fuller (RED WHITE & BLUE) and Travis Stevens, a producer who stormed 2013 fests with CHEAP THRILLS and is clearly demonstrating an eye for thrilling, emerging genre talent. It’s not so difficult to see why then, in a frankly stacked midnight lineup at a major American film festival, STARRY EYES is one to watch.

    “CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2″ (Game Review)

    If you plan to play CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2 without playing the previous two installments (LORDS OF SHADOW and MIRROR OF FATE, which was originally for the 3DS but has since been ported for XBL and PSN download), prepare yourself for some heavy confusion.  I have played those two, and even I found myself a bit lost at times during its 20 hour or so campaign, as characters tend to come back into the narrative out of nowhere and with minimal or no refresher as to who they are or what their significance was.  Luckily, you can skip over the story if you want and simply enjoy the well-constructed combat mechanic and various gameplay styles that send this series out on a relative high note.

    Lengthy New Trailer: “THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS”

    The wonderful thing about Hélène Cattet & Bruno Forzani’s THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS is that trailers just cannot necessarily spoil it. The film is so relentless in its fluid weirdness, so transfixing and often pretty upending even when you have the context of the rest of the movie in front of you, that every glimpse, brief or no, is merely just more enticing. Speaking of which…
