Opening with the familiar trope of a distressed character running through the woods into the path of a car on a quiet, unlit road, Shackled adds a delicious twist immediately, with strong imagery that surprises our assumptions: a man in a rabbit costume sits in the front of the car, while two dead bodies, blood […]
Despite the brutality of his work, Wes Craven’s films are often slyly intelligent and philosophical; he has frequently discussed the importance of horror cinema in helping audiences address primordial fears and anxieties. And much like George Romero and David Cronenberg, he is a genre director who approaches horror from an intellectual perspective and frequently laces […]
December 1975. Newlyweds George and Kathy Lutz, along with the latter’s three children, moved into 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville. Forewarned about the house’s bloody history (just over a year prior, former resident Ronald DeFeo Jr. shot and killed his family while they slept) the Lutzes proceeded to move in and unpack. 28 days later they […]
Following the worldwide success of Dracula the previous year, 1959 saw Hammer quickly rushing into a production of The Mummy. Once again reuniting the team of Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and director Terence Fisher, this would complete the trilogy of Universal Pictures creatures that had started with The Curse Of Frankenstein (review here). This was Hammer’s […]
Robin Hardy’s quite brilliant film has undergone a strange transformation in its 40 years. Originally hacked, cut and shown as the B-feature on a double bill with Don’t Look Now (and what a night at the movies that must have been), it has developed from a largely forgotten and misunderstood movie to the justifiable cult […]
Few can refute that while Tobe Hooper’s oeuvre is wildly uneven — ranging from classics like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist, Salem’s Lot and the underrated slasher flick The Funhouse, to bargain-basement fodder such as Crocodile, The Mangler and Spontaneous Combustion — his films are irritatingly fascinating, unrestrained and, with the very odd exception, […]

Fans will also be treated to a host of brand new extras, including an expert commentary from Marcus Hearn (read our interview with him here) and Jonathan […]
Released to DVD, Blu-ray and EST this week was The Last Exorcism Part II. Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is recovering after having survived a terrifying exorcism. Traumatised, she can only recall that she is the last surviving member of her family. Although she is trying to start a new […]
It’s a bizarre but clear concept: a waterspout, caused by a tornado, pulls hundreds of bloodthirsty sharks out of the ocean and rains them down on Los Angeles. It’s entertaining, but what really makes Sharknado interesting is how it is reminiscent of the short stories of Stephen King. The American’s early short fiction collections Night […]
