    A determined young woman and a damaged occultist risk their lives and souls to perform a dangerous ritual that will grant them what they want.

    "A Dark Song" is already being praised as one of the best horror films of 2017. While it is always good to be skeptical about such hype or buzz, especially when it is coming out of the film's own PR machine, in this case it just so happens to be true. This film is bound to make it on to many best-of lists for the year.

    The cryptkeeper (John Kassir) returns to tell the story of a funeral parlor that moonlights as a vampire bordello.

    The story of this film's creation and why it failed is amazing. It all starts with a script called "Dead Easy", which was a psychological thriller, and time was spent on it scouting locations in New Orleans. Then Universal pulled the plug because they had to do "Bordello of Blood". Producer A. L. Katz had no interest in "Bordello", but had to listen to his bosses. Why was Universal so insistent on "Bordello"?

    The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.

    Going into awards season, "Spotlight" was the early front-runner. And after the nominees were announced, it has remained a favorite. More than a handful of award nominations surround it, and we should expect it will get at least one, if not a few.

    Will it get an award for best screenplay? ...

    It's no easy task to take on the American Remake of Martyrs. In 2008 when the French version was released it caught everyone off guard. The dark subject matter and overall sense of dread was really captivating. It quickly made must see and top ten lists around the world. The Goetz brothers were chosen to what seems like an impossible project to direct the American version. Is it possible to capture what the French version offered and offer it in an Americanized ...

    We have all encountered many tow truck drivers in our lives. Some are incredibly nice people and others fit the stereotype of a big burly man that seems quite unfriendly. We usually imagine a man with long greasy hair and a scraggly beard that either smokes or chews tobacco. This can be an intimidating character for some people. Imagine if you don't really see him and there is a good chance that he may kill you. A Big bad tow truck driver is ...

    A doctor (Jason Evers) experimenting with transplant techniques keeps his girlfriend (Virginia Leith)'s head alive when she is decapitated in a car crash, then goes hunting for a new body.

    This film was made in 1959, but floated around a bit until picked up (and re-cut) by American International and Sam Arkoff. Over the years, and due largely to its falling into public domain, it has become a late-night staple. Many people -- and all horror fans -- have probably seen this film in some form.

    This just in, slasher fans! The company Grindhouse Releasing is finally releasing the 1982 (or 1983, depending on who you ask) Spanish Giallo/Slasher on Blu-ray this February.



    For those uninformed, Pieces is one of the bloodiest, hilarious, and over-the-top films from the 1980's. Everything from the blood-splattered matricidal opening, to the random jackie-chan rip-off, to the repeated shouts of BASTARD!!!!!!! make Pieces a perennial classic. It's cheesy fun encapsulated into a film, and is always a great time to sit down, watch with some friends and make fun of the dubbing. (Alcohol may or may not help).

    Sometimes, you simply need no words to be spoken in order to correctly convey an aspect of fear, and in the case of Phil Stevens's FLOWERS, the more ambient the sounds around you are with the absence of dialogue, the more effective the fright.

    I knew it was inevitable. The simple fact that I'd had run such a fair string of halfway decent films led me to believe that my next view would be a turd...and needless to say with THAT concrete prediction, allow me to introduce to you this little nugget of fecal wonderment: DEATH'S DOOR.

    Making the leap from music videos to feature length films apparently wasn't much of an issue for Director Alistair LeGrand with his moderately creepy haunted-house thriller, THE DIABOLICAL. While ripe with some derivative instances and lesser than inspired performances, the film still manages to provide some chills on these Autumn nights - let's jump into this one, shall we?

    The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is still one day away from being in our rear-view mirror, but that doesnít stop our heart from pumping extra blood in the excitement of our favorite festival of the calendar year Ė The Toronto After Dark Film Festival (TADFF).

    Yes, itís hard to believe that we choose a festival that plays films such as Zombeavers and Deathgasm over a more recognizable fest that is usually a precursor for the yearís Academy Award nominations. Still, there is something intimate about the Toronto After Dark Film Festival that you donít get at the big events.

    First and foremost are the fans. At TADFF they are rabid. Unlike TIFF you wonít see people leaving a reel into the film because they got tickets through their corporate office and knew nothing about the film prior to the screening. Nope. Not here. At TADFF they show up in droves with a clear and defined understanding that they are there to be scared, grossed and thoroughly entertained.

    The TADFF runs this year from October 15th through October 23rd and just this week they released 10 of the films to be showcased at this yearís event. They are a mix of horror, thriller, horror/comedies and all round awesomeness. The first ten films are:

    DEATHGASM (New Zealand) Toronto Premiere & Closing Gala Film
    In the latest crowd-pleasing horror-comedy from New Zealand thatís taken the festival circuit by storm since its debut at SXSW, a group of metalhead outcasts unwittingly unleash a horde of vicious demons upon their sleepy suburban neighbourhood. Now theyíll have to engage in an epic duel of blood and metal with Satanís hordes if theyíre to win back their town.



    If there is one thing I am very happy about it is the fact that I never have to worry about creepy guys going on dates with me. I have no clue how woman go through with blind dates. If you watch Return to Sender you might have second thoughts yourself. In actuality it is not her blind date that winds up being the villain here. Just the mere thought that it could have been is mortifying. Her friends set her up on a blind date and she believes her ...

    If you want to call THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE a film that is ripe with teen angst, that's like saying the sky is blue - a bunch of malcontented teens moping through a 90 minute film is bad enough, but to label something a "curse," whereas there really isn't much of curse to blame for said problems, is essentially a misrepresentation. This film was simply NOT as advertised, and I'll delve into this in skewered detail very soon.

    The movie follows ...
