Riding on yesterday’s announcement that Scream Factory would be tackling Brian De Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise in 2014 comes word that it will be bringing both Evilspeak and Final Exam to Blu-ray…
Fans of early 80s school-themed horror films are in luck with this news. 1981′s college campus slasher film FINAL EXAM and 1982′s satanic revenge epic EVILSPEAK (starring Clint Howard) will both be making their debuts on Blu-ray both for the first time this Summer!
Marvin Kren’s Blood Glacier hopped onto our radar a bit ago and it packed an intriguing premise. Today, we have over 20 stills and a trailer to show off to push the film’s January 20th release in UK (a domestic release still isn’t locked in yet).
Working in a remote outpost of the German Alps, technician Janek and a cohort of scientists are stunned to discover a bleeding blood glacier parked high up in the mountain range. As the gory infected berg melts the blood attracts the local wildlife only to transform them into hellish hybrids and monstrous mutations.
Well 2013 has come and (nearly) gone. It seems like just a few weeks ago I was eagerly and nervously anticipating the release of the new Evil Dead, reserving skepticism for the Carrie reboot and excited for the very much hyped You’re Next. And now we’re here. I feel like this was a year of more misses than hits. I was underwhelmed with the Carrie remake, Insidious: Chapter 2 and V/H/S 2 and didn’t really care one way or the other for Texas Chainsaw 3D and Mama. But the hits. Damn. What hits they were.
It’s Friday the 13th once again and the geek world is celebrating all things Jason Voorhees. Two posters are being made available today that pay tribute to the Crystal Lake slasher.
First up, we have Gary Pullin’s Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter which is debuting today from Mondo Tees. You’ll have to follow their Twitter account to find out when it’s up for sale today.
Then, over at Hero Complex, comes Joe Vetoe’s re-imagining of the one-sheet for 2009′s Friday the 13th. Good luck snagging one of these!
This week in Insert Scream Here, we’re giving you two episodes Insidious Chapter 2 is arriving on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD this month and in anticipation of this debut, episodes five and six of ISH look at two of my favorite scenes from Insidious with a special holiday-themed sneak peek at Insidious Chapter 2.
The focus of ISH is to look at some of my personal favorite moments in horror.
Throughout the month of October, Shock Till You Drop and CraveOnline partnered for the original review series Kings of Horror in which myself and William Bibbiani of Crave and the B-Movie Podcast spent every day looking at a Stephen King film. The series was a success, which we were very thankful for, so we decided to collaborate on something new for the holidays…
12 Days of Killmas.
The good news! Knights of Badassdom has a release strategy! The bad news? You might find it hard to see it on the big screen, which is a bummer. A teaser trailer hit the film’s Facebook page endorsing you all to “Tugg” the film, meaning request your city get it on January 21st. If your city doesn’t get enough requests: Sorry Charlie Tuna, you’ll have to wait for the VOD/digital release on February 11th.
The other bad news? It’s not the director’s cut of the film.
Knights of Badassdom is the latest feature from Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Holliston). He shot it a bit ago and the film has faced a bit of turmoil beyond Lynch’s control in the the distribution process. Long story short, he lost out and the release we’re getting is not entirely his vision.
