Celebrate Halloween With Scream Factory!

It’s impossible for me to hide the fact that Scream Factory is one of my favorite boutique media labels.

Scream Factory Unleashes Full Pumpkinhead 2: Blood Wings Details

‘Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Ami Dolenz, Andrew Robinson, Soleil Moon Frye, J. Trevor Edmond, Hill Harper, Alexander Polinsky, Mark McCracken, Steve Kanaly, Gloria Hendry | Written by Constantine & Ivan Chachornia | Directed by Jeff Burr

Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings was originally released in the UK at a time when I was heavily getting into horror yet was, legally, still too young to rent 18-rated titles from the local video shop (a shop which to this day I credit with the formative years of my movie tastes). It was also at a time when Jeff Burr was being hailed, at least in some corners of the UK and Us horror press, as the future of the genre. After all, he had helmed the fan-favourite Vincent Price-starring horror anthology From a Whisper to a Scream and then the very successful sequel The Stepfather 2, before hitting the “big time” as director on the third film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.

B-Sides: Pumpkinhead Meets the President’s Half-Brother

Many past American Presidents have had issues with family members causing embarrassing headlines, but only one ex-President’s troublemaking half-brother can lay claim to having co-starred in and performed the title song to a Pumpkinhead movie.

While William Jefferson Clinton was serving as the 42nd President of the United States, his half-brother, nicknamed “Headache” by the Secret Service, was trying to jumpstart a showbiz career. Roger Clinton managed to parlay his lounge act into a series of small TV guest starring roles, and the nadir of his Hollywood career was playing “Mayor Bubba” in the 1994 direct-to-video sequel Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings.

In addition to his supporting role, he also crooned the film’s theme song “Just Like You” that sounds a little too mellow for a backwoods horror flick about selling your soul to Satan in order to unleash an enormous hellbeast that inflicts murderous revenge against those that have wronged you.

Ami Dolenz Talks 'Ticks'

  • FEARnet
Ami Dolenz Talks 'Ticks'
If you’re a child of the 1980’s, you’ll likely remember Ami Dolenz for her roles on films like Can’t Buy Me Love, She’s Out of Control, and Miracle Beach and guest spots on Silver Spoons, Webster, and Saved by the Bell: The College Years. She even played Sloan in the short-lived TV adaptation of Ferris Bueller. The actress, however, is no stranger to the horror genre as she’s had parts in films from Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings to the greatest (and quite possibly only) movie ever made about giant killer ticks, Ticks. Tony Randel’s 1993 flick is an absolute blast and an obvious time capsule of early 90’s movie clichés, in the very best way possible.

With Olive Films’ new Blu-ray of Ticks recently hitting stores, FEARnet sat down with Dolenz to discuss her memories of the film, Seth Green’s hair, and creepy crawlies.

Digital Fury: DVD Essentials for January

A Planet Fury-approved selection of notable genre DVD releases for the month of January.

Lightning Bug (2004) Image Entertainment Blu-ray and DVD Available Now

Effects guru Robert Hall’s semi-autobiographical film about a small town teen (Reaper's Bret Harrison) who has aspirations to become a special effects artist. An opportunity to manage the town’s local haunted house is thwarted by his alcoholic stepfather and the staunchly religious views of the surrounding population. The solid supporting cast includes That 70’s Show’s Laura Prepon, Hellraiser’s Ashely Lawrence and Kevin Gage. Written and directed by Hall, it’s an affectionate coming-of-age drama that works in spite of an uneven narrative that falls apart in the final half hour. Hopefully this new extended cut will remedy the scripting problems of the original release.

Special Features include:

* Never-before-released extended cut of the film.

* Making-of Featurette

* Audio commentaries with the writer/director and cast.

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Ticks

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Jan. 22, 2013

Price: DVD $24.95, Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Olive Films

Clint Howard suffers the after-effects of a bit from some mutant Ticks.

One of the more ridiculous monster horror movies to emerge from the Nineties, 1993’s Ticks finally makes its DVD and Blu-ray debut.

A group of problem teens from Los Angeles join an inner-city wilderness project in and attempt to get back in touch with life’s priorities; led by do-gooders Holly and Charles (Rosalind Allen and Peter Scolari). When they get to the campsite, they begin having problems adjusting to the wild life, particularly with the local marijuana growers using herbal steroids to accelerate plant growth…and the mutated ticks that the leaky steroid system has created! The oversized mutant ticks with an insatiable lust for human flesh begin to terrorize the campground, eating the campers and everything else in sight.

The cast also includes Ami Dolenz

Olive Films Unleashing Ticks on Blu-ray Along with a 30th Anniversary Edition of Cujo

Olive Films doesn’t get as much love as Scream Factory, but they also do their part to bring cult movies into the age of Blu-ray. That continues early next year when the 1993 creepy crawler Ticks gets its due along with a new (and presumably upgraded) edition of Stephen King’s Cujo.

Olive Films’ release of Ticks is being billed as a “20th Anniversary Edition” even though it could just as easily be touted as “First-Time Ever on…” seeing how the underrated film has never received a proper DVD release, let alone Blu-ray.

Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 director Tony Randel helmed this skin-crawling creature feature about mutant ticks that infest the adorable Ami Dolenz (Blood Wings: Pumpkinhead 2), a pre-"Family Guy"/"Robot Chicken"/Austin Powers Seth Green, “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, Children of the Corn 2: The Final Sacrifice survivor Rosalind Allen, Tom Hanks’ “Bosom Buddies” better half Peter Scolari,

Late Night Classics – Witchboard 2: The Devil’s Doorway

I am not sure what took so long, but director Kevin Tenney, someone who didn’t grow up on horror films, thought about doing a movie where a Ouija board was the star. That brings me to the 1993 sequel, Witchboard 2: The Devil’s Doorway, a movie I think is just as good, if not better, than Witchboard.

Jason Bene: How long after the financial success of Witchboard did you decide to write and direct the sequel?

Kevin Tenney: The production company, Paragon Arts International, and I talked about it right away. Their investors were all very anxious to fund a Witchboard sequel. But Paragon Arts wanted to leverage that interest by having them invest in another film first, entitled Night Angel. Paragon was going to quickly produce that film and then go straight into Witchboard 2. Unfortunately, they had a lot of problems with production and budget on Night Angel,

Can you say knock-off? “2012: Doomsday”

  • MonkeyTossTv
Ok, have you Tossers ever heard of “Generic Brands”? Good…Well, in movies we also have that, unfortunately for us it means that an extremely low budget film of a “Major Blockbuster” is being made. Which means the smaller, relatively unknown studios will make a carbon-copy movie in-and-around the same time-frame as the bigger, well established studios with the same idea as the Major, Big Budgeted, Hollywood Machine has done…but with a different plot.

Which brings us to the movie, “2012: Doomsday” brought to us by Faith Films. It stars Cliff Dee Young (The Craft,The Substitute), Ami Dolenz (Step Monster, Miracle Beach, The Children of Times Square), and Danae Nason (Transmorphers, Come Home, Countdown: Jerusalem). Some of these actors and actresses are better known for their roles in within the Christian Film community.

The plot of this movie is really simple, and it is quite easy to understand.

50 Influential Scream Queens: Part 1

  • Fangoria
Given man's unwavering fascination with woman, it's no surprise that the female star acts as the anchor to a dominant portion of horror pictures. I mean really, who wants to see a bare chested man tearin ass through the woods screaming at the top of his lungs while a bladed assailant nips at his heels? I don't - I know that much, although I'm certain there are plenty of men who would disagree (and that's okay with me, to each his own!). The simple fact remains however, women bring a unique appeal and certain sensual atmosphere to film that no man ever could. And it's not all about gratuitous T&A.

There's a comforting quality in the hands of the heroine; a fascinating maternal strength that, as a man I cannot genuinely relate to. I can however admire, and in many cases it's nearly impossible to not admire the lone
