    “STIGMATA” (Blu-ray Review)

    Unfortunately, one of the most accepted theories on the history of horror was that the ‘90s was a dark decade for the genre. While this might not necessarily be true, this writer understands why some might believe it to be so, considering there was so much in the zeitgeist meant to appease the angry youth of the time. Said angry youth, which propelled the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Limp Bizkit and Eminem into multi-platinum status over the weepy, grungy days of rock past, would inspire similar aesthetic choices on the horror films of the time, giving us derivative, misbegotten fright fare such as THE RAGE: CARRIE 2, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS and STIGMATA.

    Stream to Scream: “THE CANAL”

    Last year, independent horror was, for the most part, defined by the less-is-more approach of blending psychological horror with supernatural horror. After all, while something popping out of a dark doorway will always be startling, the idea of something beyond our comprehension lurking behind that door is all the more scary. Of course, this approach was used in THE BABADOOK, UNDER THE SKIN, THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN and more, allowing filmmakers to play with the fantasy and storybook elements behind a horror tale and infuse it into real-world consequences. But where Ivan Kavanaugh’s THE CANAL particularly succeeds is in how visceral the psychological horror can be, offering something much more terrifying and shocking than a sense of nightmarish foreboding.

    New Trailer: Guillermo del Toro’s “CRIMSON PEAK”

    To be honest, this writer was very underwhelmed by the initial trailer for CRIMSON PEAK; the Nick Cave cover, unfinished CG and melodramatic flair made for a less-than-chilling first impression on this writer. However, any doubts I had with del Toro’s massive and macabre ghost story has been dissipated by the latest trailer, which certainly seems to match its ambition with bloody creepiness. And the incredible scope and design of the production has finally crossed over into immersive territory, allowing del Toro’s Gothic tale to hold the promise of an even more entrancing cinematic experience.
