YES! I've been waiting for a trailer since Sundance. It took me a couple viewings to appreciate it, but I really love the director's other movie Beyond The Black Rainbow. The soundtrack looks to be phenomenal as well. I can't wait to see this.

edit: Bill Duke is in this too!? It's like they grabbed everything I like out of my brain and made it into a movie. Nic Cage, Psychedelic colors, monsters, bs philosophy, a cool soundtrack, Bill Duke, a tiger, trippy visuals

One of my guiltiest pleasures. Coming Oct. 9th. They'll also be releasing "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation" and "The Exorcist II" (because someone had to I guess) in September, as well as 1985's "The Bride" and (I think I already mentioned it) a box set of the entire "[REC]" series. Here's the box art for two of those titles





Arrow only has one horror title out in September in Teruo Ishii's underrated "Horrors of Malformed Men" Here's the cover art and specs

I'm really hoping for special editions of other Hammer movies (specifically: "Horror of Dracula", "Horror of Frankenstein", "Plague of the Zombies", "The Devil Rides Out" and "Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell"). The "Critters" box set is a big one, and I had a feeling they'd be releasing "Candyman" when Arrow announced an UK exclusive edition for October.

Watched the Cabin Fever remake this past weekend.  While I feel it was completely unnecessary, I was at least entertained throughout.  I'm really not a big fan of shot for shot remakes though, and feel like if a film is going to be remade, it should at least try something different.

S. Craig Zahler (who wrote and directed "Bone Tomahawk" and "Brawl in Cell Block 99") wrote this. The score was done by Fabio Frizzi (who scored some of Lucio Fulci's most iconic movies) Comes out next Friday.

Tony Todd ain't dead and he would totally kill it if he reprised the role. I hope Peele casts him.

TCM has a series of Lon Chaney movies showing on 10/3 including The Unknown (1927), Phantom of the Opera, and The Monster (1925) starting at 8 PM. I'll be DVRing the first and third as I don't recall ever seeing them before.

It's not very good. Keith David is fun, but the rest of the actors are godawful and it feels like a SyFy original movie. It reminds me of Creepshow 3 that came out a while ago, but it's even more of a bummer because the original team is behind it.

I think this is a pretty blah trailer, but I'm still sort of excited for it. The original scared the shit out of me as a kid and still has some moments that unsettle me (Everything Zelda), but there are some things to be improved. Dale Midkiff and Denise Crosby are both pretty bad and dull in the original and Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz are a huge trade up acting wise. John Lithgow as Jud is also an awesome casting decision even though it will be hard to top Fred Gwynne.

Agreed, Keith David does a great Clarence Washington III impression and I did enjoy the framing story but the tales themselves were pretty weak. Seemed like they tried too hard to be socially conscious and re-create the cheesy charm the first film had. A giant WTF to that date rape story. I legit sat there confused the whole time watching that one.

You know what film I haven't seen since I was a kid? The People Under the Stairs. It's one of the only Wes Craven films I haven't re-watched in the last few years. No idea if it still holds up.

I'd imagine I was the only mofo that went to this last night....

Anyhow, attended the unrated director cut's screening last night (this was a one time only type event) for Lars Von Trier's latest clusterfuck, The House That Jack Built. To say this was a shockingly depraved piece of work would be putting it mildly. I was on one hand engaged in how messed up this continued to get as it went on but on the other hand I was pretty disgusted at the output. There was very long drawn out scenes of meticulous killing, and quite frankly, it was very disturbing. There was times I was considering walking out as it was too much for sure.

it was set in 5 parts or "chapters" in a sense, of preparation and execution of separate grisly kills, followed by a really bizzare epilogue that probably made little sense other than it was a fitting way to end the character.

Some of the most shocking and fucked up points of this film include:
Spoiler: show
-Children being treated like deer or other game for sport, being long range shot and killed, and then dismembered and made into taxidermy (this was one of the parts I nearly left, it was many layers of gross)
-Easily one of the most misogynistic and depraved treatment of women that I've seen in horror in quite some time....one clear example being a woman's tits were cut off graphically and used in a manner that was repulsive to say the least. Woman were treated as very inferior and quite frankly, stupid and foolish in this film in general. I kind of got the idea (Jack targets weak minded women to manipulate them) but it fell off the rails completely with me by this portrayal.
-A flashback scene where a young Jack tortures a duckling by cutting its legs off, looked like it was legitimate animal torture that wasn't a fake effect at all.
-The "house that Jack built" concept is taken to a new level with a very bizzare scene of him connecting all of his taxidermy style dead frozen bodies (he proclaims he killed and stored over 60 victims) into a "house" of sorts.


It sounds like the screening may have really set off the MPAA and they may pull the additional R-rated cut of this that is coming out in a few weeks (how this will be cut to fit an R rating is beyond me) as the distributor, IFC, didn't go through the right steps to get a waiver to release a secondary cut of a film in the theater.

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/house-jack-built-screening-violates-mpaa-ratings-rules-1164651

I'm still certainly wrapping my head over what I saw. Honestly, if the Von Trier effect wouldnt have been so brazen and foul in this, there was some interesting concepts and points that could have gone somewhere and created a snapshot of how serial killers think, but it gets muddled when you are writing and directing for shock value. it was, at its core, a disturbing and unfiltered example of the mind of a serial killer.

My big question once again after a Lars film....how in the FUCK does he get American mainstream stars to do this work? Matt Dillon was certainly all in on this performance for sure. Uma Thurman played an incredibly unlikable character (that was the point though) and Riley Keough was in a very strange disheartening role that I never expected any mainstream actress to accept.

Some friends of mine were at the screening at the IFC Center in Manhattan last night, which included a Q&A with Dillon. One of my friends reported that there was only 1 person that walked other. Other people mentioned on her post on Facebook about multiple people walking out from screenings across the country.

Oh, fuck yeah. Those two are definitely day-one for me.
I heard the old Shout! Factory Blu of "Audition" didn't have a good transfer, so this is exciting news. "Horror Express" is another example of Arrow re-releasing OOP Severin titles. They've already released "Psychomania" and "The Baby" (which is...really fucking weird and fucked up) and are releasing "Bloody Birthday" in December, so something like "House of Seven Corpses" (which is best left avoided, as it really sucks) will probably be next.

I was gonna add the two Giallo they'll be releasing in February ("The Fifth Chord" and "The Possessed") but those aren't in the "Giallo that doubles as a horror movie" as much as they are the more traditional route.

I highly recommend at least seeing Kolobos. It was Saw before Saw existed and has one of the downright nastiest kills I've ever seen. Acid, a shower head, and a porcelain sink...daaaaaamn...

I watched Kolobos a few years ago. I was entertained. The acting is pretty amateur, but it's a decent Argento/Fulci homage and as Laz said the kills are gruesome. I have a soft spot for late 90's/early 00's cheese and Kolobos satisfied me.

Good, I've always liked the original. I never saw the sequel or the Colin Farrell remake for that matter. Never thought to seek it out.

Intrigued by the Willard release and FUCK YES at Man's Best Friend. Literally taped this off TV one night as a kid when they did one of those 7 PM "horror" movies on a random channel like WB or whatever at the time. Since then, I'm a total sucker for it.

Now if only the movie Strays with Timothy Busfield would see a release.

Ya it was very awful 2002 release. Glad it's the anime to say the least.
