    Malcolm McDowell Leads Rob Zombie’s “31”

    Ever since appearing in Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN, Malcolm McDowell has become one of the director’s favorite collaborators, going lengths to bring McDowell back for HALLOWEEN II and featured the actor in his infamous CSI: MIAMI episode. And while budgetary and time constrictions led McDowell to not appear in THE LORDS OF SALEM, Zombie has recently confirmed that McDowell will be playing a major role in his upcoming film 31.

    “COURTNEY CRUMRIN: TALES OF A WARLOCK” (Comic Book Review)

    Though the adventures of young Miss Courtney Crumrin have come to an end with the previous release of COURTNEY CRUMRIN: THE FINAL SPELL, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of other stories to the Crumrin universe. The newest volume, TALES OF A WARLOCK, further explores the dark corners of the magical world, this time featuring Courtney’s uncle Aloysius in his younger days as a wizard. Exploding with political intrigue, shadowy secrets, and of course, a heaping amount of magic, this is the series for fans who are interested in a more adult take on Courtney Crumrin. That’s not to say that just because the previous volumes focused on a pre-teen protagonist that they were any less appealing (earning itself the coveted ‘all-ages’ tag vs. the limiting ‘young reader’), but it’s welcome insight into the enemies that Aloysius hinted throughout the series as well as a fun peak into his early life.

    Q&A: Horror Maestro Mick Garris Revisits “PSYCHO IV: THE BEGINNING”

    We all know the story of the Bates Motel and it’s strange dark secrets. We also know about that shy, man-child living up in that big ole dark house high on the hill just behind the motel. But how much do we actually know about him; this introverted, somber, effete painfully meek odd man? Well, now, with BATES MOTEL, we may think we know Norman Bates in and out, but horror director Mick Garris had the pleasure of bringing Norman Bates’s back story to the small screen first with his vibrantly lit and nicely plotted film PSYCHO IV. He also remembers star Anthony Perkins’s complex nature and attitude towards the film, working with the likes of Olivia Hussey and Henry Thomas, and applying masterful artistic designs on a made-for-TV film…

    “LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE” (Film Review)

    What is it about the anthology format that sings a siren’s call to so many aspiring horror filmmakers, plumping their imaginations and then luring their visions to sit in bite-sized confines? Despite having only a handful of truly classic examples to lionize, there is no shortage of independent attempts at reviving a storytelling structure longsince fallen out of fashion in the studio system. Canadian indie LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE is the one of the latest darts flung hopefully towards a bulls-eye occupied by the finest of episodic frights: TRILOGY OF TERROR, TALES FROM THE CRYPT (the Amicus picture), CREEPSHOW, TRICK ‘R TREAT, and precious few others.

    “NEKROMANTIK 2” (Blu-ray Review)

    Not long ago, we were blessed with a pretty stocked Cult Epics Blu-ray of German filmmaker Jörg Buttgereit’s infamous NEKROMANTIK (review), which made the world ill upon its 1987 arrival and rightfully retains its notoriety. Having acquired more experience behind the camera and further fascination with those who prefer sex with the dead after reading an interview with a female necrophile, Buttgereit decided a sequel would be a worthwhile endeavor.
