One of the coolest upstate New York horror events is at it again. The Hudson Horror Show will be presenting its fifth event on May 19th. The entire line-up has now been announced, and one word describes the Hudson Horror Show V films… classic!

Hudson Horror Show is being held once again at the Silver Cinema in Pougkeepsie, NY. You can get more info and purchase tickets on the Hudson Horror Show website. Read on for all the details!

From the Press Release
On Saturday, May 19th, 2012, the hallowed grounds of the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 will once again showcase the greatest classic horror film festival in the Hudson Valley, Hudson Horror Show V! Our fifth 12-hour movie festival will feature five full length classic genre films along with shorts and drive-in style trailers, all off rare 35mm film prints!

Our December to Dismember 2011 show was a sell-out with people having to be seated in our “reserved for staff seats.” Don’t miss out; grab your tickets now! This is our third year of shows, and ticket prices are still only $26.00 in advance via PayPal. Advance ticket holders save money and will be admitted first. If any tickets remain, they will be available at the door on the day of the show for $30.00, cash only.

Our Frankenstein-like monster of a line-up is now complete! Doors open at noon that day, and our “opening act” will be a mash-up of two of the greatest movie studios of all time as Hammer Films and the Shaw Brothers collide in Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires! This film, also know as The Seven Brothers Meets Dracula, mixes Gothic horror with, well, kung fu. It’s kind of like putting your peanut butter in my chocolate; who knew they would taste so good together?

We’ll have our semi-traditional “Mystery Movie” in the line-up, and that could be just about anything at this point. Perhaps some blaxploitation? How about a good old fashioned rape/revenge flick? Maybe some more giant monsters? Our lips are sealed until show time, but we are sure the mystery movie will be anything but a disappointment.

Hudson Horror V will then push on full steam ahead with our triple axe attack triple headliner! Our zombie movie for this show will be an extremely rare screening of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead. Unfortunately this amazing film was barely seen in theaters upon its original theatrical run in 1985, and it’s had even fewer screenings since. We are proud to unearth this zombie classic one more time.

Headliner number two will be a movie that has been constantly requested by Hudson Horror fans, Phantasm! With dwarf zombies, crazy bugs, killer spheres and, of course, “The Tall Man,” this nightmarish masterpiece will definitely make you want to sleep with the lights on.

Our third and final headliner of this triple threat will be none other than the incredibly influential slasher flick, the original, Friday the 13th! This film, originally released in 1980, was a watershed horror release and kickstarted the slasher craze that took Hollywood by storm for many years to come. Perhaps the biggest star of the film isn’t Jason Voorhees, but Tom Savini’s realistic and gruesome special effects. These effects were unfortunately toned down in 1980 so the producers could secure an “R” rating. However, we’ve been lucky enough to obtain a print that has the best parts intact! At long last, Hudson Horror presents the UNCUT version of the original Friday the 13th off 35mm film!

We will have the usual shorts, drive-in trailers, vendors, giveaways, trivia questions and nonsense that make Hudson Horror so much fun. We’ll have just a few vendor spots for HHV; if you are interested in selling or promoting your wares, or if you just have questions regarding our show, visit the Hudson Horror Show website.

From the cover of Kyd's first Vermintide OST

Get your headphones ready, Warhammer fans because State of Decay and Darksiders 2 composer Jesper Kyd is back to score the upcoming Warhammer title Vermintide 2! The game will be coming to PC and consoles early this year.

Kyd was inspired by Norse mythology, utilizing ancient tribal music as well as dark fantastical elements to build upon the acoustic soundscapes he composed for the first Vermintide game. Channeling his own Scandinavian roots, Kyd will blend Viking and Norse-inspired vocals with ritualistic percussion styles to create a unique soundtrack experience.

Three tracks from the score can be heard below.

Like Me – Will You Like This Dystopian Thriller?

Published

on

Starring Addison Timlin, Ian Nelson, Larry Fessenden

Directed by Robert Mockler


While Like Me is not dystopian in the classic science-fiction sense, it does aptly put the downer vibe across. If the present is abysmal, then the future is downright hopeless. We learn this as we follow an unhinged teenage loner called Kiya (Addison Timlin) on a hollow crime spree that she broadcasts on social media. At first the world “likes” her—with the exception of YouTube rival Burt (Ian Nelson), who disdainfully denounces her viral videos—but pride goes before the fall, and Kiya’s descent is spectacular.

If you’ve peeped the trailer for Like Me, then you’re probably expecting a horror movie. I mean, they’ve got the requisite menacing masked baddie and they’ve got genre icon Larry Fessenden in a major role—those are a couple of the key ingredients, right? Yes they are, but this simmering, shimmering stew of Natural Born Killers, Excision and King Kelly, it boils down to a whole lotta nothing. Like Me is sort of a drama, kind of a road trip flick, and almost a thriller. It succeeds at none yet does stand on its own as a compelling collection of cool visuals and pertinent performances. But is that enough?

While Kiya is a compelling character on the surface, there’s barebones beneath. Sure, she’s a Millennial mind-fed on random online clips and snappy soundbites—but what turned her into a psychopath? Was she born that way? Is social media to blame? We’ll never know, because not a hint is given. I don’t mind ambiguity, but even a morsel would have been welcome in this case. As Kiya ramps up her reckless exhibitionistic extremes, the stakes are never raised. In the end, who cares? Maybe that’s the point.

A word of warning: If you plan on watching this movie while chomping snacks…don’t. There is stomach-turning scene after vomit-inducing scene of orgiastic easting, binging, and the inevitable purging. I’m sure it’s all metaphorical mastication, a cutting comment on disposable consumption. I get it. But I don’t wanna look at it, again and again and again. Having said that, Like Me is an experimental film and in its presentation of such grotesquery, it’s quite accomplished. Montages, split-screens and jittered motions are scattered throughout, showing us all sorts of unpleasant things…Kudos to the editor.

I didn’t hate Like Me. But I do think one has to be in the mood for a movie such as this. It’s not an easy or entertaining watch, but it is a peculiar and thought-provoking one. There’s some style and mastery behind the camera, and I am curious to see what first-time writer-director Rob Mockler comes up with next.
