  • Stream to Scream: “DUST DEVIL”

    ,,

    There are horror films that attempt to scare the audience by creating a world as close to our reality as possible; films that go for grit and realism in order to make you believe that a palpable threat could be lurking just outside your door. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are movies that place their narratives deep inside a dreamscape, forcing the characters within to navigate a world where myth and monsters are God, and the corporeal realm we know is an afterthought at best.

  • “THE SLASHENING” (Film Review)

    ,,

    In an age where horror spoofs are almost universally derided, there’s a certain amount of gutsy respect afforded to filmmaker Brandon Bassham for going straight into THE SLASHENING as a parody. After all, there’s only so much material in the slasher genre that has yet to be untouched by spoofs or commented upon by self-referential fright flicks. And while this serves true for some parts of THE SLASHENING, which is clearly inspired beyond its means, Bassham thankfully takes a more absurdist approach that provides inherent charm to this lean, mean parody.

  • “HARBINGER DOWN” (Film Review)

    ,,

    For a critic who primarily reviews within the horror genre, giving a completely unbiased review to a project such as HARBINGER DOWN is almost impossible. Given the film’s publicized Kickstarter, promotional materials presenting itself as a “practical effects film” and the heartbreaking saga of Studio ADI’s work on THE THING, HARBINGER DOWN has been a film fright fans have been rooting for since day one. And while any horror fan should be excited when one of the industries top FX masterminds is given free reign to do an old school monster movie, that same sense anticipation can be a double edged sword, and HARBINGER DOWN unfortunately falls into that category.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: “ANGST”, “HENRY” and The Serial Killer Conundrum

    ,,

    For over thirty years, Gerald Kargl’s ANGST was a holy grail for hardcore horror fans, garnering a reputation as a serial killer film so shocking and realistic that no U.S. distributor was willing to take a gamble on it. Furthermore, bootlegs of ANGST became a crapshoot for underground collectors considering the film rarely made home video without some kind of censorship or unapproved edits, making the select few 35mm screenings of the film must-go events for the horror and art crowds alike. And now, in 2015, ANGST has finally made its way into the American marketplace, hitting Blu-ray and select theatrical screenings around the country, one of which this writer attended no more than 2 weeks ago.
