Artwork for The Violent Kind

The Butcher Brothers have a bit of a spotty track record with genre fans. From pleasing the majority of us with The Hamiltons to savaging some good memories of ours with their insipid April Fool's Day remake, you just have to take their films with a grain of salt.

Top Ten High School Horror Movies: 1996 - Present

This past fall saw the debut of the supernatural horror/comedy Jennifer’s Body, and with the film's Blu-ray and DVD release being only a few weeks away (December 29th), I thought it might be interesting to take a look back at some of the most successful high school horror films that have been released over the past 10 to 15 years.

Two New Clips from Case 39

Know what really scares us? Renee Zellweger's face. She used to be kind of cute during her Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation days, but once Hollywood came a'knocking, it was a quick tug here, a slight injection there. Now she looks as if she's just constantly shitting out whole lemons. Where was I? Oh, yeah! We have two new clips from her latest flick, Case 39!

Rejoice! Alone in the Dark II on DVD in January

If ever there was a movie that did not require a follow-up, it would be Uwe Boll's disastrous Alone in the Dark. Uwe Boll only produced this time around, allowing the makers of the direct-to-DVD House of the Dead 2, Peter Scheerer and Michael Roesch, to write and direct this second installment of the Alone in the Dark franchise that continues its grand tradition of gobbledygook storytelling.

Aronofsky's Black Swan Cast Expands by One

We've been talking about Natalie Portman's Black Swan for a few weeks now, and it wasn't until like five minutes ago that we discovered the term "Black Swan" has nothing to do with her vagina. It sounded so kinky in that context though, didn't it? Ah well. The film, directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Portman, has just gotten itself a new cast member today!

Imprint Entertainment Answers the Phone for Remake

It was starting to seem as if the Asian horror remake trend is deader than a long black-haired chick wearing white and rotting at the bottom of a well. However, for some, just like John Rambo, "NOTHING IS OVER! NOTHING! YOU JUST DON'T TURN IT OFF!" That's right, kids! Here's a quick update on the remake of the Korean chiller Phone.
