Click to see it biggerBorderline Cult (2007)
Directed by Uli Lommel

Oh, shit, more Lommel. Never a good way to start off a DVD list, I don’t care what the doctors tell me. The story, what I’m sure there is of it, is about three serial killers who band together at a US/Mexican border town and, instead of swapping stories and trading e-mail addresses, decide to go on a massive killing spree. Sure, that’s a realistic scenario. Best of all, though? The DVD comes with a Uli Lommel commentary, which I’m sure will be price of the disc alone! Check out our DVD review of Borderline Cult to find out! Buy it here!


Click to see it biggerDexter: The Complete First Season (2007)
Directed by Various

Here is what was called by many the best new show on television, both network or otherwise. The story is about a charismatic Miami police forensics expert who does some of his best work at night, when he moonlights as a serial killer of those he felt escaped justice. For me it’s one of those shows I always had people telling me I needed to watch but never have had the time. Seriously, who has time to devote to a TV show? Hence the beauty of getting a show on DVD mere months after it’s finished its TV run! Buy it here!


Click to see it biggerExorcism (1974)
Directed by Juan Bosch

I have to give credit to BCI; they’re taking some random, odd Euro horror titles and giving them some damn nice releases. I mean, really, who would’ve thought anyone would want a special edition of Exorcismo? Obviously there’s a demand for it! The story is about a girl who unwittingly participates in a Satanic ceremony and becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead father. Check out our DVD review of Exorcism, as it’s called here, to learn more! Buy it here!


Click to see it biggerMalicious (1995)
Directed by Ian Corson

Speaking of movies no one’s ever asked for on DVD; what the hell is this? Is that really Sixteen Candles cutie Molly Ringwald looking all evil and shit on the cover? Ugh. It’s got the excuse of being a 12-year old movie (at least she’s not making these now, right), but man … that’s just embarrassing. To make it worse she plays a girl who’s obsessed with her school’s star baseball player and finally manages to convince him to spend a weekend with her. When he goes back to his girlfriend the following week, however, she looses it and puts everyone in danger. Buy it here!


Click to see it biggerThe Night of the Sorcerers (1973)
Directed by Amando De Ossorio

Ostensibly this flick is about a team of researchers who head in the jungles of Africa to investigate the disappearance of a whole shitload of elephants in the area. How the hell do elephants disappear? What they discover instead is a tribe of voodoo freakazoids who rise from the ground, kidnap all the women, and systematically whip their clothes off them. What the film is actually about, however, is nekkid women and zombies. Check out Creepy’s hilarious DVD review for The Night of the Sorcerers for more! Buy it here!


Click to see it biggerThe Rising Dead (2007)
Directed by Brent Cousins

And the award for most amateurish, poorly Photoshopped cover goes to … The Rising Dead (applause)! Anyway, the movie tells of what happens when the government unleashes biological weapons to fight our enemies but inadvertently raise the dead, instead. Wouldn’t they have tested for something like that? A special forces solider is assigned to get the government leaders to safety, but of course their plane crashes and he has to fight a horde of the undead. Buy it here!


Click to see it biggerToho Triple Feature
Directed by Various

Yep, three movies from the famed studio who brought you Godzilla! Included in this box set is The Mysterians, about a race of aliens who want to breed with our women, Varan the Unbelievable, about a mountain god that hates humans and eventually heads to Tokyo for some good ole fashioned building-stomping, and Mantango Attack of the Mushroom People, which is about a shipwrecked crew who eat some local mushrooms to stay alive only to find out they’re both poisonous and sentient. Buy it here!

Bound to the rules of a haunting childhood lullaby, the twins must never let any outsiders inside the house, must be in their rooms by the chime of midnight, and must never be separated from one another. Breaking any of these three rules will incur the wrath of a sinister presence that inhabits the house after midnight.

While Edward is committed to this ill-fated life, he’s becoming more unhinged due to the fact that Rachel is not. Smitten by a local soldier (Eugene Simon), Rachel grows skeptical and begins to rebel, desperate to escape the oppression and misery of their captivity.

The Strangers: Prey at Night Set Visit Part 2: Screams and Flames

Published

on

[SPOILERS] As mentioned in our earlier set visit story, The Strangers: Prey at Night maintains the same feeling of isolation as the original. Even though a full-fledged production was going on in Gatlin Lake Getaway, it is hard to shake that feeling of being totally alone once wandering away from the set lighting. The dark surround woods start to close in and threaten to swallow any who stray too close to the tree line. Then the silence is broken as a beat-up 1972 Ford Ranger’s engine revs and a scream slices through the night.

Back on the lit street, the familiar looking truck has collided head-on with the side Wagner County Sheriff’s SUV. At the driver’s seat of the Ford is a man sporting a white cloth bag as a mask. The Bagman has returned. His appearance has not changed. The empty sockets of the mask still glare ominously and the painted smile poorly hides the stranger’s murderous intent.

An air of frustration surrounds the Bagman as he attempts to free the truck from the SUV. In vain, the Ford revs and struggles to no avail. Bad news for him, but good news for whomever the Bagman was pursuing. The law enforcement vehicle, with its lights flashing, had been driven by a young woman decked out in a black Ramones t-shirt and blood-splattered jeans. Her hair is jet black. The woman’s skin is streaked with dark blood and open slash wounds. The dark punk eye makeup is running, but the wearer is not.

It is obvious that this woman has been through a lot as she limps from the wreck. The context of her current state is not clear, but the shrieking that emanates from her as she produces a lighter and throws it to the ground under the collided vehicles speaks volumes. It can only be assumed that she has been chased, slashed, and emotionally beaten for hours. The scream is packed with emotions from fear to outright spite and rage. It is so powerful, in fact, that the crew members uttered stunned laudations.

As the gasoline ignites, the flames climb and spread of the mangled metal of the two collided vehicles. The Ford’s engine still violently revs as the Bagman emotionlessly tries to break free. The young woman is slowly backing away, unaware of the chain reaction occurring. The darkness of 1 AM is broken by two giant fireballs that erupt, engulfing the metal mayhem in the middle of the street. The surroundings fall silent, cut is called and the crew erupts in exclamations at the awesome spectacle.

This powerful moment was brought to us by Bailee Madison (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark).

The Strangers: Prey at Night was now on its twenty-second day of shooting and only eight more days remained. The cast and crew are well accustomed to their routines and the late night shoots have become second nature. When asked if the constant schedule of night shoots had been difficult, Madison elicited some of the virtues that the darkness has to offer, “There’s something very vulnerable about night shoots. You are emotionally in a different place when you’re awake and rested in the daytime. I think for something traumatic like this, you need to be able to access different emotions; at night you’re a lot more capable.”

At this point in production, Bailee’s character has seen a lot of action. A heavy amount of blood adorns the actor’s arms and a thick clotting mass of the red stuff covers most of her forehead. Keeping track of that damage for continuity from day to day looks like a grueling task, and makeup department head Jodi Byrne dropped some details about the process, “We have continuity photos and we take pictures of Bailee constantly throughout the day … We have to determine which takes are actually going to be used in the film and we move from that point.”

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive..
