Sweatshop Pounds its Way to Home Video

Get out your raincoats, kids! Things are about to get really messy! Texas-based filmmaker Stacy Davidson's latest slasher (or should we say pounder?) flick Sweatshop is getting ready to hit DVD and we think you're gonna dig the hell out of it! Look for the flick in stores on September 13th in a deliciously gooey unrated cut via Screen Media Films.

At the risk of sounding like an old codger, they just don't make slasher movies like they used to. For whatever reason, most modern filmmakers don't seem to understand what made the slashers of the early 80s work so well, and the upcoming Spirit Camp appears to be no exception. Whenever I see words like "throwback" kicking around the plot description, I'm extra skeptical as it's typically another way of saying "we made a really forced and silly comedy". Will this one prove me wrong?

Night Flier Director Mark Pavia Explores Sick Nick!

For me, one of the best horror films of the 90s is The Night Flier. The Stephen King adaptation is a terrifically eerie little horror film boasting some fantastic atmosphere and performances, and I've always felt its success is largely due to Mark Pavia's skilled direction. For a while it looked like Pavia was never going to deliver a sophomore effort, but we're happy to announce that day is finally here!
