    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.

    Henry Rollins rolls “HE NEVER DIED” today

    Although you’ve seen him act opposite evil in FEAST, WRONG TURN 2: DEAD END and THE DEVIL’S TOMB, singer/speaker/actor Henry Rollins has yet to have the chance to shine as a film lead. However, that’s about to change, as Rollins is starring in the brutal horror-thriller HE NEVER DIED.

    CW developing new “TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE” with Joe Hill

    A resurgence in cinematic anthologies, and possibly the anthology-like nature of each season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, has no doubt led to the return of the anthology to its natural home: television. The CW will develop a new iteration of the George Romero-created TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE for a summer 2014 run with acclaimed author Joe Hill (HEART SHAPED BOX, HORNS, LOCKE & KEY) attached to write.

    “THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2″ (Arrow Blu-ray Review)

    The usual rap on Tobe Hooper is that he made a masterpiece with his first feature and then never made another decent film. Wrong. Sure, nothing else in Hooper’s filmography can compete with the unrelenting intensity of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, but then very few horror movies can. For those willing to dig (and accept the shared responsibility on POLTERGEIST, just like how Spielberg and Lucas shared authorship on RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK), the truth is that Hooper has made many wacko twisted genre flicks since his iconic debut (SALEM’S LOT, FUNHOUSE, LIFEFORCE). In fact, he’s even got another classic with TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE in the title. Released unrated in 1986, most critics didn’t know what to make of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2. After all, here was a sequel that replaced the subtlety and suspense of the original with bawdy humor and the most disgusting gore of Tom Savini’s career. It was a movie that turned intensely real killers into cartoons, gave Dennis Hopper a chance to go farther over the top than he managed in BLUE VELVET, and for some reason the poster was a parody of THE BREAKFAST CLUB. It was, at face value, a sequel that inverted everything that was successful about the original and therefore was far from a worthy successor. But the reasons viewers hated CHAINSAW 2 then are what make it such a clear cult classic now.

    Misty Day’s obsession to guest star on “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN”

    COVEN could very well be AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s best season yet. While ASYLUM was admirable in its truly dark sensibilities, COVEN has managed to merge such with the delightful, kinky nature of Season One (aka “Murder House”). Now, after introducing a spellbinding, memorable ensemble, and including zombies in a great fashion, creator Ryan Murphy has announced a guest spot for one of this season’s stylistic influences.
