  • Stream to Scream: “DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD”

    ,,

    While generally well-received, financially successful and, at the very least, having earned the notoriety of “that nazi zombie movie” among contemporary horror fans (over the likes of OUTPOST and SHOCKWAVES), DEAD SNOW has been a rather divisive movie among horror audiences. Some fright fans took Tommy Wirkola’s Scandinavian scare fare in stride, praising the fun approach to the material and splattery action that would cement it as a modern midnight movie. Others, however, were less impressed; whether it be using the “harbinger” trope or aping too much of Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD aesthetics, harder critics donned it too derivative for its own good. Thus when a sequel was announced, the response was a surprising balance between cheers and apprehension, even if the time since its premiere had garnered DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD a mounting sense of goodwill.

  • “THE GREEN INFERNO” To Consume Audiences September 25th

    ,

    After nearly a year since the film was abruptly pulled from cinemas, Eli Roth’s cannibal opus THE GREEN INFERNO will see the light of day after all. Roth made the official announcement earlier today, detailing that the film will see a 1,000 theater release and a digital marketing platform (much akin to the expanded release of IT FOLLOWS) via Blumhouse Productions, who will team with Universal Pictures and High Top Releasing to distribute the film via Blumhouse’s BH Tilt label. This will also guarantee that THE GREEN INFERNO will hit theaters before Roth’s Sundance chiller KNOCK KNOCK, which Lionsgate aims to release later this year as well.

  • “BALLISTIC” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Subtlety can be a fragile thing. With some forms of storytelling, depending on the tale that’s being told, it could be an artist’s greatest ally, helping plant the seeds to a gradual reveal or hide some incredible character traits that become integral to the plot by the third act. However, for some stories, the absence of subtlety can be inappropriate in execution especially when paired against action and characters who benefit from the colorful and explicit. And in extreme cases such as Adam Egypt Mortimer and Darick Robertson’s BALLISTIC, subtlety is almost nowhere to be seen because the name of the game is cacophony and insanity, which BALLISTIC plays effortlessly.

  • “LET US PREY” (Film Review)

    ,,

    The mid-’00s were a very strange time in horror; the J-horror remake movement had gone stale, while the so-called “torture porn” scene exploded side by side with the New French Extremity movement. There was a very specific theme of sadism that ran through the genre on almost every level, with horror focusing on anguish and suffering whether or not the story truly supported it. Thus, many films of this time remain far from memorable, as even though the intention to push the barriers of good taste was pursued, there was so little payoff to make the experience truly gratifying. And when watching Brian O’Malley’s LET US PREY, that era came to mind in a different light altogether: creepy, brutal and gripping, I felt as if I was watching what those films had so often sought to become yet with the substance they so often forgotten.
