Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 will be available on Blu-ray September 17th from Arrow Video

The hills are once again alive with the sound of screaming in Wes Craven s hugely entertaining follow-up to his own groundbreaking 1977 The Hills Have Eyes.

A motocross team on their way to trial a new super-fuel head out across the desert lead by Rachel, who, unbeknownst to the rest of the group, is a survivor of the cannibal clan which menaced the Carter family several years before. Opting to take an ill-advised shortcut across the desert, the busload of youngsters drive straight into the path of the remnants of Rachel s demented cannibal kin – the menacing Pluto, and a hulking, blood-hungry brute by the name of The Reaper.

Made by Wes Craven immediately prior to his smash-hit A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes Part II diverges from the

Blu-ray Review – Weird Science (1985)

Weird Science, 1985.

Directed by John Hughes.

Starring Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Kelly LeBrock, Bill Paxton, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Rusler, Michael Berryman, Vernon Wells, and Judie Aronson.

Synopsis:

A pair of high school nerds create a ‘perfect’ woman using their computer but chaos ensues as she tries to teach them the error of their ways.

So how do you go about selling Weird Science – a movie so 1980s it should come with a free tin of hairspray and a pair of florescent socks – to a new audience in 2019? Quite a tough sell considering the two essential plot details involve a computer and a pair of teenage nerds who just want to be liked, and in 2019 audiences are savvier about computers and being a nerd is seen as a badge of honour and not the negative insult it was back then.

But the current fetishism of the 1980s in pop

Documentary About Nightmare On Elm Street Legend Has Reached Its Fundraising Goal

He’s part of the the reason you look under your bed at night.

His name’s Robert Englund, and for 35 years, you’ve probably referred to him as Freddy Krueger. Believe it or not, that’s about as long as it’s been since Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street first hit theaters, and among the several spinoffs and sequels it’s spawned, the film’s become a cult horror classic.

A lot of this acclaim can surely be attributed to Englund, whose eerie performance as the iconic dream-hunter has become a staple of scream cinema – showcased in seven additional films ranging from 1985 to 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason. So it makes sense that people want to know his story.

And that’s exactly what Cult Screenings UK’s been trying to provide to us with their latest project, Icon: The Robert Englund Story. Taking to Indiegogo.com,

Let’s All Scare Bryan to Death: The Evil Within (2017) with Andrea Subissati

  • DailyDead
Welcome to Let’s All Scare Bryan to Death, my new column based on the idea that there are a lot of horror movies in the world, and I haven’t seen a lot of them. I’m going to work on changing that with the help of people who love horror and are smarter than me (re: everyone) by getting them to introduce me to a movie I’ve never seen before. That’s literally the only criteria. We’ll talk about the movie and see what kind of fun stuff we can pull out of it.

For my first installment, I decided to jump right into the deep end with Andrea Subissati, who you may know as the Executive Editor at Rue Morgue Magazine, one half of the Faculty of Horror podcast, and simply one of the most intelligent voices in horror today. Her selection for this most

Review: Shed of the Dead (2019)

Zombies seem to be a popular focus in the horror genre at the moment, with TV shows The Walking Dead bringing a new rejuvenated interest in the horror sub-genre. The success of the series seeming to be infectious, with a variety of zombie themed projects coming out every week, although most shuffle along without offering anything new to the genre.

Amongst the horde however you occasionally come across a breakout horror such as Shaun of the Dead (2004). A film which offers something different to the normal formula as both a homage and parody of the sub-genre. Where Shaun (Simon Pegg) pays homage to the influence of George Romero’s “of the Dead” series, Shed of the Dead uses Shaun as a familiar template and follows a similar infected vein with the balance of horror and comedy. Throw in amazing cast of horror icons, role play fantasy and a more sophomoric humour,

Movie Review – Shed of the Dead (2019)

Shed of the Dead, 2019.

Directed by Drew Cullingham.

Starring Spencer Brown, Ewen MacIntosh, Lauren Socha, Emily Booth, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Michael Berryman and Brian Blessed.

Synopsis:

A man who spends much of his time playing fantasy games in his allotment shed suddenly finds himself in a real fight to the death when a zombie apocalypse ravages his hometown.

Any attempt to do a zombie comedy in Britain inevitably invites comparisons to Shaun of the DeadEdgar Wright’s universally beloved masterpiece of the art form. There’s some of that film’s strange, parochial joy at play in Drew Cullingham’s Shed of the Dead, which sees an unemployed fantasy role play nerd positioned at the centre of unfolding chaos as zombie hordes begin to run riot.

That nerd is Trevor (Spencer Brown), who rents an allotment patch almost solely so he has an excuse to spend hours in

British zombie comedy horror Shed of the Dead gets a poster and trailer

Ahead of its World Premiere at Sci-Fi-London and digital release next month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for writer-director Drew Cullingham’s British zombie comedy horror Shed of the Dead which stars Spencer Brown, Ewen Macintosh, Lauren Socha, Emily Booth, Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, Bill Moseley and Brian Blessed; check them out here…

An ‘urban fear’ grips the tenants of an inner city allotment when the long-predicted apocalypse finally arrives. Gardeners, of all levels of green-fingered ability and produce-preference, are afraid to venture onto their plots, especially late at night. And even then, when they can summon enough courage to so do, there is no safety in numbers. For the dead have risen from the depths beneath the cabbage patch, and the rows of sweet pea, hell bent on mischief, mayhem and consumption of the living.

Only the nimble fingered “figurine war-gamer” Trevor, aka ‘Casimir the Destroyer’, and his best friend Graham,

There is a dark place in movie hell reserved for the beast known as the “video game movie”. There have been some that really aren’t that bad, take Doa: Dead or Alive as an example or Silent Hill. They knew how to keep things fun without being too cheesy in the process. But what about Double Dragon, which has just been released, in the Us, on Blu-ray from Mvd as part of their Mvd Rewind collection.

Appreciating The Impressive Career of Michael Berryman

When you look at Michael Berryman you might think he’s wearing more than one prostheses for one role or another, but the truth is that this is the way he looks at all times. He is unique in many ways since you don’t see a lot of people that share his appearance in film, but this has also led to his being one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. It’s also kind of led to him being typecast as the big, scary-looking guy since he stands about 6’2″ and is kind of imposing in stature. But honestly when he

Movie Review – Death House (2018)

Death House, 2018.

Directed by B. Harrison Smith.

Starring Tony Moran, Adrienne Barbeau, Kane Hodder, Sid Haig, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Tony Todd, Michael Berryman, Felissa Rose, Lindsay Hartley, Sean Whalen, Vernon Wells, Debbie Rochon, Cortney Palm, Lloyd Kaufman, R.A. Mihailoff, Bill Oberst Jr., Cody Longo, and Vincent M. Ward.

Synopsis:

During an exclusive tour, a power breakdown inside a secret prison known as the Death House sends two agents fighting through a labyrinth of horrors while being pursued by a ruthless army of roaming inmates.

Death House’s how-is-this-not-copyright-infringement market stance as “The Expendables of horror” does, admittedly, rustle anticipatory feathers. Kane Hodder. Barbara Crampton. Michael Berryman. IMdB’s credited cast could adorn double-digit Mount Gushmores – but that’s all pre-screening hype. These titans of terror claim responsibility for countless moviegoer nightmares, only to be failed as Death House fumbles its Dante’s Inferno descent while borderline inexcusable

10 Movies That Inspired The Misfits

10 Movies That Inspired The Misfits
The collision of punk rock and heavy metal with horror movies and sci-fi has resulted in some of the greatest bands of all time. Chief among them are The Misfits, who combined a fascination with b-movies, pre-code horror comics, and Famous Monsters of Filmland with aggressive but incessantly catchy punk rock into an iconic blend that influenced everyone from Metallica to Rob Zombie to Black Veil Brides. Here, we'll take a look at 10 movies that inspired the Misfits.

When the band formed in Lodi, New Jersey in the famous punk year of 1977, the moniker they chose was the name of a 1961 movie starring Marilyn Monroe, the screen princess who also inspired the first solo single from singer and songwriter Glenn Danzig, "Who Killed Marilyn?" The Misfits disintegrated in 1983, with Glenn moving on to the similarly legendary Samhain and Danzig. Original bassist Jerry Only revived the Misfits in 1995, with an abundance
