Celebrating 40 Years of Wes Craven’s THE HILLS HAVE EYES

It’s a bit tough wrapping one’s head around it, but it’s actually been four decades since Wes Craven’s censorship-defying chiller THE HILLS HAVE EYES arrived and left viewers sitting in stunned silence. While the enthusiastically gritty LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT differed significantly in premise, it did serve as a bit of a precursor of […]

Escape From Development Hell: The Lost Adventures of Snake Plissken

Despite Snake Plissken’s status as one of the most iconic anti-heroes in genre cinema, he hasn’t had that many outings. Since arriving in 1981’s ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK he’s fronted two movies and some comic spin-offs, but little else. It says a lot about Kurt Russell’s performance and the world John Carpenter crafted around him […]

Clear! The FLATLINERS Remake Trailer Is Here!

“Today is a good day to die.”  That was the catch phrase of the original 1990 Joel Schumacher FLATLINERS, which at ripe age of 14, I loved and went to see several times in movie theaters. Now, a new updated remake is coming out from Sony Pictures and with director Niels Arden Oplev, the Danish […]

The Horror Remakes We Genuinely Love

Remakes have been and always will be a tricky thing. Some enjoy them, and some don’t. Some of them work, and some don’t. Some are made for the right reasons, and some are made for a buck. That’s the nature of the game. We’ve been fortunate enough to see a few remakes come along that […]

5 Actors We’d Like to See Play Freddy Krueger

Successfully replacing Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger is likely an impossibility. Jackie Earle Haley did a marvelously frightening job as the scarred slayer of children in Samuel Bayer’s 2010 remake. The problem was the movie was a mess, and the beats consistently missed with one act bleeding into another. It was a wreck, but it […]

Crime & Dismemberment: A Look Back at MANIAC COP

From the twisted minds of genre exploitation gurus Larry Cohen (Q THE WINGED SERPENT) and Bill Lustig (MANIAC) comes the most demented tale of law and disorder that ever ignited the caramel covered floors of ’80s grindhouse picture palaces. Shot on location in New York during the late 1980s than at the height of its […]

MISFITS Guitarist Starring in Remake of Cult Fave DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT

After making the rounds at drive-ins and seedy cinemas throughout the ‘70s — often paired with LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT — and a second life on countless public-domain home video releases, S.F. Brownrigg’s gritty, twisted cult classic DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT [one of our favorite DON’T! movies], is making genre headlines again this […]

When Godzilla ALMOST Fought Frankenstein!

I’m never sure. How seriously am I supposed to take Godzilla? Don’t get me wrong. I love Godzilla movies. In fact, I’ve probably seen more than most people, having – more than once – written holistic retrospectives of the whole series. That means I’ve seen over 30 Godzilla movies. Some are great, some are awful, […]

Why George Romero’s LAND OF THE DEAD Deserves a Second Look

For many of us who grew up during the 1970s and the ’80s, the original George A. Romero zombie trilogy — NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD, and DAY OF THE DEAD — was where it was at if you were a horror fan. Rumors of George doing a fourth movie in […]
