Retro Review: CHOP (2011)

Retro Review: CHOP (2011) {0}

One of the more pleasant surprise of the 2011 horror landscape was the emergence of the “Bloody Disgusting Selects” line of theatrical and video releases. A joint effort between a company known as The Collective and (of course) our friends at Bloody Disgusting, “BD Selects” hit screens of various sizes with solid acquisitions like Yellowbrickroad, Rammbock, Cold Fish, Atrocious, and (especially) The Woman, but it’s nice to see the BD Selects team casting a wider net and reeling in some weirdly likable horror/comedies like Deadgirl/Cheap Thrills screenwriter Trent Haaga’s Chop.

Found footage warning! The indie sci-fi/horror film known as Banshee Chapter has been classified as “found footage” and is deemed worthy of this warning because apparently some viewers dislike “found footage” even if it’s used in service of a nifty and novel genre conceit like the one found in Banshee Chapter. In other words, if you’re cool with this type of presentation, you may like the movie. If you don’t, well, then you probably won’t. /warning


Exclusive Review: FEAR CLINIC (2015)

Exclusive Review: FEAR CLINIC (2015) {0}

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” Franklin D. Roosevelt once said. Chronic phobics like Sara (Fiona Dourif) couldn’t agree more. But how do you go about effecting a cure for a crippling phobia?



Now Showing: THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS (2012) {0}

Back in 2005 I was lucky to catch a 47-minute Lovecraft adaptation called The Call of Cthulhu, thanks to the Slamdance programmers who liked it enough to book it … even though it’s only 47 minutes long. Easily one of the most faithful Lovecraft adaptations ever produced (the best of the adaptations often take great liberties with the man’s work). The Call of Chtulhu was a perfect little jewel in its own right, and it was just nifty enough to make me wish the producers had expanded the original text to make the film a bit longer. But when a film is produced by a group called The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, you’re talking about some serious fans who don’t want to mess around with their patron saint’s masterpieces.

LATE PHASES: UK Release Date and New Title {0}

Remember Late Phases, the werewolves-in-a-retirement-community movie which received its UK premiere at FrightFest 2014?  Here’s a reminder of our review. Following its sold-out screening, the film was picked up by Metrodome in the UK, and has now been scheduled for release on April 20, under a new name: Night of the Wolf: Late Phases.

No sleeve artwork has yet been announced, so you’ll have to make do with an image from the US Blu-ray (entitled Late Phases: Night of the Lone Wolf), after the fold.
