Gothic Vestron Video Collector’s Series Blu-ray Coming This January from Lionsgate

7 hours ago

What if the events that inspired Frankenstein's monster were more horrifying than the monster itself? For the 13th entry in their Vestron Video Collector’s Series, Lionsgate is taking viewers to a fateful night with Mary Shelley and her friends with the Blu-ray release of Ken Russell's Gothic this January:

Press Release: From the Vestron Video Collector’s Series, the horror classic Gothic will arrive for the first time on limited edition Blu-ray on January 30 from Lionsgate.

Catalog From The Beyond: The Invisible Man (1933)

8 hours ago

After a little over a year of doing this column, I think you and I have a pretty good thing going. If you’ve come this far and are still willing to follow my incessant ramblings, I think our relationship can survive a wee confession: hard as I try, I just cannot get into the Universal Monsters movies. Don’t get me wrong, I value them for laying the foundations of the horror genre, but when it comes to actually watching them, I just don’t find them as engaging as more modern films.

Take, for example, James Whale’s iconic Frankenstein. This is a movie that defined gothic horror and created the look for Frankenstein’s monster that would be ingrained in our collective consciousness for generations. I’m a huge fan of the film’s visual aesthetic and the notion of a sympathetic villain is one that always resonates with me. »

Review: The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is a Kafka-esque Nightmare for Millennial America

9 hours ago

Art reflects the period in which it is created, and maybe that’s why the awards race is full of extremely dark comedies. From Get Out to The Square, angry, amusing and bleak visions are coming to claim their Oscars. In spite of its A-list cast and crew, one film feels a bit too strange to join the awards conversation, yet it manages to be one of the year’s most uniquely devastating works. Part body horror, part social satire, all spine-chilling dread, singular auteur Yorgos Lanthimos brings his vision to America for The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

To explain the plot’s full introduction would ruin some of the film’s surprises; those who haven’t seen it and want the pure experience are forewarned. Colin Farrell teams up with Lanthimos for a second round post-Lobster, this time playing a wealthy surgeon who mentors young, impoverished Martin (Barry Keoghan »

AFI Fest 2017 Review: Marlina The Murderer In Four Acts is a Morbid Feminist Tonic for Violent Masculinity

10 hours ago

Hollywood is in a state of semi-suspended upheaval at the moment. The patriarchal cycle of aggression, shame, and silence has been exposed, at least on the surface. The process has thrown crucial light onto depictions of brutality against women in film, which often seem exploitational or punishing for no reason simply due to the characters’ gender. Stories involving these elements are now being told through the lens of female filmmakers, however, and this year has seen a number of powerful trope inversions. Mouly Surya brings us what might be the most singular example of this from Indonesia, in the form of Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts.

As the evocative title suggests, Surya unfolds her film over four distinct stages. The first sets itself up like a quiet Peckinpah film: seven bandits rob widowed Marlina, force her to cook them dinner, and prepare to assault her. Marlina is more resourceful than they expect, »

Review Round-Up: Sweet Virginia and The Ice Cream Truck

11 hours ago

Before it's time for us to serve up some turkey Stateside, here are my thoughts on two recent indie genre films I’ve had the pleasure of checking out: Megan Freels Johnston’s horror comedy The Ice Cream Truck and Jamie Dagg’s crime thriller Sweet Virginia, featuring Jon Bernthal.

The Ice Cream Truck: Akin to an early Tim Burton-esque take on the horrors of suburbia and adulthood, Johnston’s The Ice Cream Truck is a slightly absurd yet wholly relatable exploration of the anxieties of modern women, particularly those who don’t necessarily fit in with the typical “Bake Sale Moms” out there who always seem to have “it” together, living out their existences happily defined by their roles within their respective households.

In The Ice Cream Truck, we are introduced to Mary (Deanna Russo) who is anything but confident in the woman she has become over the years. »

Horror Highlights: Labyrinth Pop! Vinyl Figure, Grey Zone, Boggy Creek Monster, The Mothman Of Point Pleasant

19 hours ago

In today's Horror Highlights, we have a photo and details on the new member in Funko's Pop! vinyl line, a glitter variant of Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth! Also, we have the trailer and music video for Grey Zone and trailers for the creature-based documentaries Boggy Creek Monster and The Mothman of Point Pleasant.

New Funko Labyrinth Pop! Vinyl Figure Photo and Details: From ThinkGeek: "So the default version of the Funko Pop! Jareth from Labyrinth does not come with glitter. Which was obviously an oversight on someone's part. Somebody at Funko should probably be suspended head-first right now in the Bog of Eternal Stench for that.

However, we might pardon them considering they've given us a second costume option with this owl-cloak festooned David Bowie Pop! The cloak itself and his eyes have gold glitter, and the rest of his outfit has silver glitter spangled on it. And »
