Dahmer vs. Gacy Wins Award at Action on Film International Film Festival

A film titled Dahmer vs. Gacy doesn't seem the type to be garnering awards at film festivals across the country, but that's exactly what's happening. It just won "Outstanding Cast Performance" at the Action on Film International Film Festival in Pasadena, California, and earlier this year the film also was voted "Audience Choice Award" winner at the Bare Bones Independent Film Fest in Muskogee, Oklahoma.

Mother Had Her Day and Now Dad is Getting Some Love in Troma's Father's Day

Rob Hall Brings the Violence to The Victim

Every good horror movie needs an F/X maestro to pile on the goods that have gorehounds sweaty with anticipation. For Brock Morse's new flick The Victim, the film team has brought on a man who knows a whole lot about spreading the red.

Lifetime Breaks with Tradition to Present Within on July 31st

We admit that at times we've labeled a few genre films as being more suited to Lifetime than our readership when they veered off into soap opera-ish territory so we're more than a little curious about the network's "broad departure" (in its words) from its typical fare to present supernatural thriller Within this Saturday night, July 31st.

Deadly Karma is a Real Bitch!

Remember that nerdy kid you knew in school? Yes, him (or her). Hopefully you left them alone. If not the consequences could end up being deadly, and that's exactly the case with the new indie feature Deadly Karma.

New Trailer for Wounded Embark of the Lovesick Mind & a Pinocchio Update from Gris Grimly

Lynch Mob Will Have You Bobbing for Italians this Halloween

"The Sopranos meets 2000 Maniacs" is how I described Lynch Mob in my review of the quirky cannibal horror comedy.

Keep Your Eye on the Sparrow

Don't go to bed, with no price on your head. No, no, don't do it. Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time, yeah, don't do it. And keep your eye on the sparrow. When the going gets narrow. Don't do it, don't do it. Where can I go where the cold winds don't blow, now. Well, well, well ...

First Images and New Website: Asham Kamboj's Basement

You would think that with "Lost" mania still a big part of pop culture (despite its lukewarm finale), people who run into a mysterious hatch popping out of the ground in the middle of nowhere would just turn around and leave it alone. But hey ... then we wouldn't have a horror movie now, would we?

Demeking, The Sea Monster to Come Ashore in October

October is really shaping up DVD-wise. Now we can add a new giant monster movie from Japan that until now I had somehow not heard about. The 2009 daikaiju movie Demekingu is slated for a US DVD release in October under the Americanized title Demeking, The Sea Monster. Hey, as long as it's better than Kraa! The Sea Monster, I'll be happy.
