80s horror

Saturday Nightmares: Body Double (1984)

It’s hard to imagine a world where Body Double is a Ken Widerhorn (Return of the Living Dead part II) film. Originally, Brian De Palma had intended to write and produce, but opted to get behind the camera when another of his projects fell through.

Saturday Nightmares: Hello Mary Lou - Prom Night II (1987)

1980’s Prom Night was among the first slasher films to come bursting forth from the post-Halloween floodgates and, while it doesn’t seem like you can find a positive review of it anymore, it was a big success then and remains one of the most enjoyable entries in the slasher subgenre.

Saturday Nightmares: New Year's Evil (1980)

As soon as I saw the Cannon Group logo at the beginning of New Year’s Evil, I got excited. In the 80s, nobody produced trash better than Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus and, if their later slasher effort, Hospital Massacre, was any indication, this holiday horror flick would be worth celebrating.

SDCC 09: Mother's Day Remake Synopsis

Darren Lynn-Bousman's Mother's Day remake is set to roll this September in Canada. But you don't have to wait until then to get some juicy story details. You can read on for the dirt!

SDCC 09: Night of the Creeps Sequel is a Possibility

With the L-O-N-G awaited DVD of Night of the Creeps just around the corner, interest in the film is arguably at an all-time high. Creeps creator, Fred Dekker is at the San Diego Comic Con this week (like everyone else in the world) and spilled the beans on the possibility of a sequel...

Alex Winter Finally Unlocks The Gate

Alex Winter’s Freaked remains one of the most amazingly underrated films I’ve ever seen. In fact, I love it so much that it has bought the former Bill & Ted star eternal goodwill in my eyes. Normally I balk at the prospect of horror films of my youth being remade, but you can’t seem to escape that fate these days. And with Alex Winter at the helm, I’m actually looking forward to the updated version of the Tibor Takacs flick The Gate.
