Vincent D'Onofrio gets "Chained".

Coming to UK DVD and BD this February, from the mind of writer/director Jennifer Lynch comes the shocker that has stunned audiences worldwide: When he was 9 years old, Tim and his mother were abducted by taxi‐driving serial killer Bob (an intensely disturbing performance by Vincent D’Onofrio - Law and Order : Criminal Intent).
Tim’s mother was murdered. Tim was kept as a chained slave, forced to bury the bodies of young women Bob drags home and keep scrapbooks of the crimes. Now a teenager, Tim (Eamon Farren) and Bob share a depraved father/son/protégé relationship. But who will ultimately sever the bond between ‘family’ and unimaginable horror?
Jake Weber (Dawn of the Dead 2004), Evan Bird (“The Killing”) and Julia Ormond (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, TVs “Mad Men”) co‐star in what critics are calling one of the most controversial and uncompromising thrillers of our time.
The film is released to UK disc February 4th and contains alternate scenes as extreas.

Horror Channel - From Page to Scream Season

Saturdays, Feb 2 – Feb 23, 10.55pm

The Horror Channel celebrates the pen behind the poison with FROM PAGE TO SCREAM – a season of films with literary origins from some of the most talented authors in the genre: Clive Barker, Stephen King, Jack Ketchum and Tony Burgess. this February, Saturdays, Feb 2 – Feb 23, 10.55pm.

Sat Feb 2 @ 22:55
First in the series is THE LOST (2006) – a dark horror thriller directed by Chris Sivertson.

Pye is a charismatic murderer on the edge of sanity who meets his match when Katherine Wallace (played by Robin Sydney) strolls into town.

Sat Feb 9 @ 22.55
A season of book based horror would not be complete without an entry from master of the macabre Stephen King.

The film version stars David Arquette, Barbara Hershey and Jonathan Jackson as the deadly stranger.
Sat Feb 16 @ 22.55
Next in the season is PONTYPOOL (2008), a zombie film with a difference.

The final film in the season is the premiere of DREAD (2009), from Clive Barker, the man who gave us the classic Hellraiser – and now more of his short stories and novels are making it to the big screen.

Director Jonathan Williams got in touch recently to tell us about his new film "Reality Kills : The Burningmore Incident", which comes to UK DVD this March.

Grabbers - UK DVD/BD review

Sony pictures kindly sent me a copy of their new horror comedy "Grabbers", by director Jon Wright, to take a look at. So not wishing to disappoint, here’s my review.
A Meteor that crashes down in the ocean marks the start of a series of bizarre disappearances from around the nearby island of Erin. The boozed up local policeman, Ciaran (Richard Coyle) and his new assistant Lisa (Ruth Bradley) investigate, but fail to find any bodies. Though they do turn up and awful lot of heads.
When a strange tentacled creature gets captured by a local fishermen, they realise its the start of an alien invasion and the island is now under siege. Fortunately, it turns out these creatures are adversely affected by alcohol, so as the creatures prepare to attack, the locals head for the bar for a drinking frenzy the likes of which has never been seen.
Imagine “Night of the Living Dead”, but set in a pub instead of a farmhouse, and with Cthulu creatures instead of zombies and throw in a lot of jokes about the Irish’s love of drink, and you have “Grabbers”. If you enjoyed “Shaun of the Dead”, you should like this.
The film is already out on UK DVD and Blu-Ray and comes with filmmakers commentary track, an interview with Director Jon Wright, a behind the scenes feature, a selection of outtakes and a photo gallery as extras.

The Helpers - Edible Horror Promo

OK, this has got to be one of THE weirdest promotions for the release of a horror film that I've ever seen.

To promote the release of "The Helpers", which hits UK DVD Jan 21st from Koch Media, they teamed up with Miss Cakehead to create edible horror scenes from the film.

The event took place on January the 17th at an address in Bethnal Green Road London and consisted of cakes that looked like severed heads, severed hands made of marzipan and batteries made from Gingerbread.

The food was free to everyone attending the press event, IF they could stomach it.
Pics from the event are as follows...

Yes this is a cake, its Lemon Drizzle flavoured apparently.

 This bloodied remote control and half eaten Pizza were actually cookies.

These realistic weapons were actually made of chocolate


The bloody bath was some sort of cocktail mixture, the battery was made of Gingerbread.

More gingerbread batteries

Female flesh cake!

No redneck motel would be complete without a bedside bible, this entire bedside table is made from cake and biscuits.

The Possession - UK DVD/BD review

“The Possession” comes to UK DVD and BD this month and Lionsgate were nice enough to send me a review copy to take a look at.
Divorcee, Clyde Benneck (Jeffrey Dean Morgen – Watchmen) buys an antique wooden box at a yard sale for his younger daughter, Em. But shortly after doing so, he begins to notice a change in her.
She spends increasing amounts of time alone in her room, starts having violent outbursts and is constantly being reprimanded at school for her behaviour. Then when she claims someone in the box is talking to her, Clyde and his former Partner Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick – TVs Closer) suspect its not just their divorce that’s the cause of her recent behaviour. Particularly when they find that anybody who comes between Em and her box suffers a grisly fate.
Discovering that the item is a Jewish Dybbuk box, which is said to contain a malevolent spirit, he enlists the help of a Rabbi to see if he can shed any light on what’s been happening. But when Em has a routine X-ray at the hospital, which shows up something unexpected and scary, they realise the box does indeed contain something a lot more sinister than just a few old artefacts…
Based on a true story, “The Possesion” is the latest release from producer Sam Raimi (of “Evil Dead” fame) and is directed by Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch) . If you liked “The Exorcist” or the “Amityville Horror”, then you should enjoy this.
The disc contains the uncut version of the film, featuring extended scenes that were trimmed for the theatrical release. Extras wise, it has 2x separate audio commentary tracks, 1 with director Ole Bornedal and 1 with Writers Juliet Snowdon and Stiels White, and there's a “History of the Dybbuk box” feature, which shows the true story of the real incidents that inspired the film.
The film is released to UK DVD and Blu-Ray January 21st from Lionsgate films.

"Last House on the Left" actor Fred Lincoln Dies.

It is being reported on various web sites that exploitation film actor, turned 'adult' movie director, Fred J Lincoln (left) has passed away, following a short illness, at the age of 75.
Lincoln is probably best know to horror fans for playing Fred "Weasel" Podowski in the 1972 cult movie "Last House on the Left" alongside David Hess. 
He went on to carve a career for himself as a director in the "adult" film industry, notching up in excess of 300 titles.
Lincoln never had much love for "Last House on the Left", as those who have listened to the US DVD commentary will attest, but did begrudgingly accept its popularity and would often appear at conventions alongside its main star David Hess, who played Krug Stillo (Hess himself passed away in 2011).
News first started circulating on Thursday when several acquaintences started posting messages of condolence on Twitter. His daughter Angelica later confirmed of his passing, saying that he had been unwell for some time.
RIP Fred!

Comedown - A DVD review

Managed to get a sneak peek at the new urban horror “Comedown”, which hits UK video shelves in January from Studio Canal.
The story takes place on a run down housing estate in London, and revolves around young gang member named Lloyd (Jacob Anderson - Adulthood), who’s recently come out of jail and is looking to make a fresh start with his girlfriend Jemma (Sophie Stuckley – The Woman in Black), who’s pregnant with his child.
When one of the local drug dealers asks him and his friends to break into a disused towerblock  and put up an ariel for his pirate radio station on the roof, he’s initially reluctant. But eventually agrees after being promised a substantial amount of cash in return.
But, after setting the radio ariel up, they soon become aware that they’re not alone in the old building when members of the group start vanishing. Initially they suspect one of the rival gangs may have followed them in and are trying to mess with them. But when the dead bodies start piling up, they realise there’s something more sinister going on.
With their numbers dwindling, getting back out of the tower block proves no easy task, as they find stairways blocked off, lift shafts sealed and the exits locked, as they feverishly poke around in the dark looking for another way out, whilst trying to fend of vicious attacks from an unseen assailant.
Directed by Menhaj Huda, who also did Kidulthood, the film has that same sort-of gritty, urban, inner city feel to it. But mixes in elements of the “Saw” films and various slasher movies. In fact it was almost like an Eli Roth version of “Phantom of the Opera”, but set in a tower block.
The film did suffer slightly owing to its low budget, which produced a few shaky CGI effects near the end, but putting that aside, if you like gritty gang films and slasher movies, you should enjoy it.
The film is released to UK DVD and Blu-Ray on the 28th January. Extras on the discs include a “Making-of” feature and interviews with the cast and crew.

"FAN-TASM" documentary in production

Fantasm, a new documentary about horror conventions and the tight-knit community of fans who attend them, is currently in production under the direction of Kyle Kuchta.

Kyle Kuchta has a self-proclaimed obsession with horror films. Upon discovering the phenomenon of horror conventions, the young genre fanatic finally felt like a part of a community. He connected with like-minded individuals with whom he shares his love for the genre. Now he's traveling to conventions all across America to find out why horror brings people together.

In addition to legions of devoted fans, the documentary will feature insight from iconic actors and filmmakers. Interview subjects who have already participated in Fantasm include Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Nightmare), Tom Atkins (Halloween III, Escape from New York), Joe Lynch (Chillerama, Wrong Turn 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and more.

Fantasm began as aspiring filmmaker Kyle Kuchta's thesis in pursuit of his film degree from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts. "I wanted to do a documentary on horror conventions," he explains, "because I didn't feel as if a lot of people knew about them or the loving community that they are a part of."

The documentary was partially funded via Kickstarter. Further proving the enthusiastic support of the horror community, the project reached its goal in just eleven days. The 21-year-old Kuchta is currently working as a one-man film crew, serving as director, camera operator, interviewer and editor, among other duties.

Production will continue in March at the upcoming Monster-Mania in Cherry Hill, NJ and HorrorHound Weekend in Cincinnati, OH. Filming has previously taken place at such fan-favorite conventions as Monster-Mania (Hunt Valley, MD), Rock and Shock (Worcester, MA), Spooky Empire (Orlando, FL) and HorrorHound Weekend (Indianapolis, IL). 

The documentary is expected to be completed in May 2013.

From Beyond Directors Cut comes to UK disc

From the team that brought you the gloriously perverse Re-Animator comes the equally surreal horror classic From Beyond, which makes its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray thanks to Second Sight Films.

Pretorious meets a sticky end, only to return as a grotesque, deformed being and all manner of depravity ensues.

Based on another H.P. Lovecraft adaptation this deranged gorefest is directed by Stuart Gordon (Castle Freak) and produced by horror supremo Brian Yuzna (Society). It comes to Blu-ray in stunning limited edition packaging, along with a DVD release on 25 February.
