DVD Review: BLACK WATER VAMPIRE

BLACK WATER VAMPIRE | © 2014 Image Entertainment

Cast: Danielle Lozeau, Andrea Monier, Anthony Fanelli, Robin Steffen, Bill Oberst Jr. Writer: Evan Tramel Director: Evan Tramel Distributor: Image Entertainment The first two-thirds of BLACK WATER VAMPIRE are a near re-creation of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, except with a vampire, snow and better camera equipment. Yep, it is another found footage horror flick where a group of four young documentarians investigate four murders of women on the same day over the course of four decades in the Black Water Forest in Washington State. Of course, none of these doomed documentaries ever ends well. As the Black Water killings go, …Read On »

CD Review: DAY OF THE DEAD (Limited Edition) soundtrack

DAY OF THE DEAD soundtrack | ©2013 La La Land Records

Even when outright horror movies had humor in them, composers would mostly play the often gory action straight. While DAY OF THE DEAD might amiably shamble amongst George Romero’s original trilogy, it’s John Harrison’s score that stands as the most unique of their soundtracks for this reason. Where NIGHT used library music for maximum black and white effect, and Goblin brought catchy, progressive rock color to DAWN‘s entrail-laden shopping mall, it could be argued that Harrison was the composer who truly got Romero’s subversive satire, even if this sequel was claustrophobically set in a decidedly non-consumerist military mine complex. For …Read On »

What could have been an absolute train wreck, turned out to be PSYCHO II, a surprisingly effective thriller directed in a very Hitchcockian …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Ken Marino pushes hard for BAD MILO

Ken Marino in BAD MILO | ©2013 Magnet

In the annals of ass-monster movies, BAD MILO comes across as a terrific rush – pardon the unavoidable metaphors. Not nearly the gross-out fiesta its premise of a dooty Dark Half might imply in its admittedly hilarious trailer, this production of director Jacob Vaughan (THE CASSIDY KIDS) and the usually sedate mumblecore directors / producers Jay and Mark Duplass (BAGHEAD), BAD MILO is far more of an update of tragic WOLFMAN mythos, as crossed with the satire of OFFICE SPACE, the reproductive angst of THIRTYSOMETHING and any number of post-EST self-help psychiatry sessions. Grimacing and screaming through it all in …Read On »

WWE and Lionsgate Team up for horror sequel to SEE NO EVIL

WWE Studios | (c) 2013 WWE

Nowadays, WWE is making a slew of movies every year. But back in 2006, SEE NO EVIL was one of its first forays into movie making – trying to transition its wrestlers from just in-ring performers and trying to perhaps jump-start another Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. SEE NO EVIL wasn’t too bad. It starred Glenn “Kane” Jacobs terrorizing a group of college students that were investigating some crazy hotel were stuff had gone down. Now, WWE is going back to its roots with a sequel, aptly named SEE NO EVIL 2. The interesting thing here is not that it will …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: SATURDAY MORNING MYSTERY director Spencer Parsons on a horror-filled Scooby Doo

SATUDAY MORNING MYSTERY | (c) 2013 XLRator Media

SATURDAY MORNING MYSTERY is a pretty fun and different horror flick that takes what would be a real-life ghost hunting foursome and their faithful canine companion and throws them into a ghastly mystery that proves there aren’t really ghosts but people on the other hand are much worse. The Scooby Doo live action films have been done many times – including multiple movies with the actual licensed name – but none of them has the sheer brutality or clever payoff as SATURDAY MORNING MYSTERY. Director Spencer Parsons sat down to talk about his film and how it went about getting …Read On »
