Blu-ray Review: NIGHTMARES

NIGHTMARES Blu-ray | ©2015 Shout! Factory

Stars: Cristina Raines, Emilio Estevez, Lance Henriksen, Richard Masur, Veronica Cartwright Writers: Christopher Crowe, Jeffrey Bloom Director: Joseph Sargent Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 Despite its uneven quality, 1983’s NIGHTMARES has been a much desired film to get a much-deserved Blu-ray release. Originally salvaging rejected scripts from the 1981 anthology TV series DARKROOM (because they were too intense), producer (and writer of three of the stories) Christopher Crowe took the scripts and transformed them into a four-part anthology film. With all anthology movies, the entries a pretty hit and miss – and the lengths vary as well – […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: HARBINGER DOWN

HARBINGER DOWN | © 2015 Vertical Entertainment

Cast: Lance Henriksen, Camille Balsamo, Matt Winston, Giovonnie Samuels, Winston James Francis, Mick Ignis, Michael Estime Writer: Alec Gillis Director: Alec Gillis Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: August 7, 2015 HARBINGER DOWN is a pretty blatant rip-off of the John Carpenter classic THE THING. However, the people who made the film – on the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign combined with funds from their own pockets – make clear that’s what they were going for in a homage to not just THE THING but also other science fiction monster movies from the 80s including LEVIATHAN and even a bit […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: PUMPKINHEAD Collector’s Edition

PUMPKINHEAD - Collector's Edition | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Lance Henriksen, Jeff East, John D’Aquino, Kerry Remsen, Kimberly Ross Writer: Mark Patrick Carucci with Gary Gerani, based on a story by Carducci, Stan Winston and Richard Weinman and based on the poem by Ed Justin Director: Stan Winston Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory PUMPKINHEAD has always been one of those odd horror films that defies categorization. It’s an original concept, has a great lead creature, a unique premise yet, when all is said and done, never truly achieves the greatness its premise promises. After watching the Collector’s Edition of the 1988 film from Shout! Factory, I […]Read On »

Not many characters survived the bloodshed of SCREAM 4, but Deputy Judy Hicks (played by Marley Shelton) managed to come out okay and ready for future SCREAM movies. For Shelton, playing the quirky officer of the law who may or may not have involvement in the recent killings in the small town of Woodsboro was a career highlight. The film, directed by Wes Craven who helmed the previous three movies, just hit Blu-ray and DVD and the actress spoke with ASSIGNMENT X in this exclusive interview about her role in the film and wanting to return for more.

It’s rare for a filmmaker to helm all four installments in a movie franchise, but like Steven Spielberg did with the INDIANA JONES franchise, Wes Craven has matched that record with SCREAM. SCREAM 4, the latest chapter, hits DVD and Blu-ray this week as it reunites the surviving cast members from the previous three movies – Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette as they confronts the nefarious Ghost Face killer one more time as he (or she or more) terrorizes the quaint small town of Woodsboro. ASSIGNMENT X recently spoke with Wes Craven in this exclusive interview about the […]Read On »

There are only a handful of horror movie heroine/survivors that have made it past a couple of movies with their wits and body parts intact. The short list includes Jamie Lee Curtis who starred as Laurie Strode in four of the HALLOWEEN films, Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in four ALIEN films and now tying their record is Neve Campbell returning for SCREAM 4 (aka SCRE4M) as heroine Sidney Prescott. Sidney has outlasted and outwitted the elusive Ghost Face killer (and killers) in the previous three movies and in this fourth installment she returns to her hometown of Woodsboro for a […]Read On »

We now have Twitter, Facebook, smart phones and a whole plethora of new technology which is ripe for new Ghost Face adventure to utilize in his slashing endeavors. And […]Read On »

Interview: SCREAM 4 director Wes Craven takes another STAB at the franchise with SCRE4M

Ghost Face in SCRE4M | ©2011 Dimension Films

Most filmmakers are lucky to have one major franchise to their name in their career, but Wes Craven has managed to have two with A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and the SCREAM movies to his name. Throw in THE HILLS HAVE EYES and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (which have both been remade from his seminal 1970s films) and the director has proven to be one of horror’s continual masters and a force to be reckoned with.   With SCRE4M (aka SCREAM 4), Craven returns for the fourth go-around to the venerable horror franchise that started in 1996 and has […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: SCREAM 3

SCREAM 3 Blu-ray | ©2011 Lionsgate

Rating: R Stars: David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Patrick Dempsey, Scott Foley, Lance Henriksen, Matt Keeslar, Jenny McCarthy, Emily Mortimer, Parker Posey, Deon Richmond, Patrick Warburton Writer: Ehren Kruger Director: Wes Craven Distributor: Lionsgate Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 After two really good films, the SCREAM franchise took a huge nosedive with 2000’s virtually unwatchable SCREAM 3. A very lazy film (when you compare it to the ambitions screenwriter Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven were going for in SCREAM 2), SCREAM 3 is a hodge podge of unfunny comedy, crazy back story and very few actual scares. Williamson is nowhere […]Read On »
