Get Ready to Experience The Tormenting on Halloween

Published

on

Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year, which means a slew of horror films will be making their home video debuts that day in order to capitalize on the holiday’s timing. The latest to join the fray is the female-helmed The Tormenting, which Breaking Glass is releasing on VOD on October 31st; and we have all the details for you here.

From the Press Release:
Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to the Canadian horror film THE TORMENTING. Breaking Glass acquired rights to the film in August in a deal negotiated between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and Brian Sweet of APL Films.

THE TORMENTING premiered and won three awards during the Sutter Creek International Film Festival and went on to play the Rio Grande Film Festival, the Indie Fest Film Festival (where it won the Award of Merit), and the Female Eye Film Festival. The film stars Laura Mitchell (October Kiss, The Unauthorized Full House Story), Steve Baran (Five Minute Rush, “Supernatural”), and Eric Schweig (The Last of the Mohicans, “Blackstone,” The Missing). THE TORMENTING is directed by Jaspreet Kaur, written by Kaur and Prabhjot Bhangu, and produced by Bhangu and JJ Productions.

“It’s a real struggle to be a female in the director’s chair within the horror genre,” said co-writer/director Jaspreet Kaur. “Many other females have directed horror genre films before, but people continue raising questions about a traditional woman being a filmmaker.”

“Newcomer Jaspreet Kaur has crafted an interesting, female-centric ghost story that was inspired by a true story about a missing girl,” said Richard Ross, co-president of Breaking Glass Pictures. “It is wonderfully atmospheric with good performances and an above average amount of scares!”

Starting October 31, THE TORMENTING will be available to buy/rent on the following platforms: iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Xbox, Vudu, and On Demand through your local cable provider.

Synopsis:
Amy is a medical researcher with ambitions to open her own health care facility. After visiting a property up for sale, she begins to experience tormenting supernatural visions of a young girl who experienced a horrific death. Amy’s life takes a turn when she begins to piece together glimpses of the girl’s last living moments and starts to understand the spirit’s plea for help to cross over.

Seeking a detective’s assistance, Amy becomes determined to seek justice for the girl’s death and bring her soul to peace—even at the risk of being perceived as insane by those close to her.

Wes Craven’s SWAMP THING Finally Coming to Blu-ray in the UK this September

Published

on

Although it’s certainly not considered to be one of his best films, I’ll always have a soft spot for Wes Craven’s Swamp Thing. Based on the DC Comics character, the film opened to mixed reviews when it was originally released in 1982, although it since gone on the earn a cult following, and even spawned both a sequel and a live action TV series spinoff.

88 Films will finally release Swamp Thing on Blu-ray in the UK on September 10, which will be the first time the film has been available on the format in the country. Extras will include two separate audio commentaries, one by Craven himself, and the other by critic and fan Ian Jane, and an interview with production designer Robb Wilson King. More extras will be announced closer to the date of release, although we know that the Blu-ray will come will also come with a booklet by critic Calum Waddell. The box art revealed on 88 Films’ Facebook page also promises that it will include a limited edition slipcase.

Swamp Thing starred Ray Wise as the scientist Alec Holland, with Dick Durock his titular monstrous alter ego. The supporting cast include Adrienne Barbeau, David Hess, Nicholas Worth, and Louis Jourdan. Whilst it was notably lighter in tone than most of the films that shaped Craven’s career, it’s still a film that all horror fans should watch at least once.

UK readers can pre-order their Blu-ray copy of Swamp Thing on Amazon.

First Look – GOOSEBUMPS: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN

Published

on

I’m really looking forward to the upcoming sequel to the Jack Black kid-horror flick Goosebumps. I enjoyed the books as a kid and dug the 2015 movie more than I ever thought I would.

And speaking of Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, today we have your first look at Ken Jeong in the film. The actor dropped the first look image over on Twitter and you can check it out below.

He’s dressed as Frankenstein’s monster, but this looks to be part of a Halloween party so I don’t think he’s actually playing that part… But I guess we’ll see.

The film is directed by Ari Sandel and stars Madison Iseman, Ben O’Brien, Caleel Harris, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ken Jeong, and Chris Parnell.

Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween hits October 12th.
