Victor Crowley Hatchet Adam Green

Older horror fans may not know who Adam Green is, but for the better part of the last decade the filmmaker has written and directed some of the very best in slasher horror. Known primarily for his Hatchet series, Green also directed Frozen (2010… not that one), Digging Up The Marrow (2014), and the TV series Holliston on FearNet. In 2006, Green wrote and directed Hatchet, a throwback to ’80s-style guts and gore slashers, starring everyone’s favorite Jason, Kane Hodder as the gigantic unstoppable monster, Victor Crowley. Not only did Green get a horror legend to play his lead villain, but icons Robert Englund (Freddy) and Tony Todd (Candyman) also appeaed. With the sequels, more and more horror legends showed up and soon Green amassed an army of Hatchet fans, both in and out of the industry. This week, the fourth film in the franchise, Victor Crowley, debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital, and VOD. I was able to get some time earlier this week to speak with Green about the film as well as its place in horror history…

Heavy Metal Halloween Black Roses

Two days before Christmas in 1985, a pair of young Judas Priest fans from Reno, NV went to a Lutheran church playground and attempted suicide with a 12-gauge shotgun under the chin. One of them died instantly while the other survived with facial disfigurement but died from an overdose of painkillers three years later. Their parents brought a civil action suit against the members of Judas Priest, alleging that their sons had been compelled to kill themselves after hearing what they believed to be a subliminal message hidden in a cover of Spooky Tooth’s 1969 song “Better by You, Better than Me” that Priest recorded for their 1978 album Stained Class.

Since the origins of rock & roll, any music that wasn’t family-friendly sock-hop fodder sung by Bing Crosby or Peggy Lee was considered to be the work of agents of the dark lord Satan, and groups of self-righteous religious nuts and power-mad authority figures assembled protests and burned thousands upon thousands of copies of these records in effigy. Horror filmmakers in the latter half of that narcissism-fueled decade cashed in on the raging hysteria by producing several low or medium-budget features with hard rock and/or heavy metal tunes not just occupying space on the soundtrack albums, but actually figuring prominently in the plots.

Horror and metal have always enjoyed a cozy relationship that endures to this day. Since no celebration of Halloween is complete without a juicy fright flick marathon to enjoy with that bag of candy you pilfered from your nieces and nephews, here’s my list of the 5 best heavy metal horror classics to ever grace a theater screen or the shelves at your neighborhood mom & pop video store that closed down ages ago and was replaced with a Verizon Wireless retailer.

Blu-Ray Review: The Poughkeepsie Tapes from Scream Factory

The Poughkeepsie Tapes
Blu-ray Combo Pack
Director: John Erick Dowdle
Screenwriter: John Erick Dowdle, Drew Dowdle
Cast: Bobbi Sue Luther, Samantha Robson, Ivar Brogger
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 86 Minutes
Release Date: October 10, 2017

The Poughkeepsie Tapes, a found-footage horror film directed by John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine and As Above, So Below), made its premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. The film was picked up by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and scheduled for a 2008 theatrical release – you may even remember seeing trailers for the movie before Frank Darabont’s The Mist. In spite of the promotional advertising, the docu-thriller was removed from the studio’s release schedule.

For years, the only way to watch Dowdle’s movie was a rough cut available on file-sharing sites. In 2014, however, the movie was given its first official release as a video on demand (VOD) title available through DirecTV. A month later, it was removed from the VOD platform for reasons unknown. As a result, the movie has gained an underground following as being something akin to a snuff film, so violent – so dark and disturbing – that it isn’t suitable for mainstream audiences. Enter Scream Factory, Shout Factory’s sub-division of forgotten horror and science-fiction films, who are giving the film its first proper home video release.

John Carpenter's Tales of Science Fiction

John Carpenter is the Master of Horror. And as the master he seeks to control all phases of horror entertainment. Known the world over for his theatrical classics like Halloween, The Thing, Escape from New York, and more, Carpenter released an album in 2014, and is dabbling in the world of comic books and graphic novels with the Asylum books released for Storm King Productions, a production company run by Carpenter and his wife Sandy King Carpenter.

Now Carpenter seeks to take over television, signing a development deal with Universal Cable Productions (UCP) where he will executive produce scripted programming, UCP announced today. Horror is as explosive a genre on TV right now across basic cable, premium channels, and streaming. Shows like The Walking Dead, Ash vs Evil Dead, American Horror Story, Preacher, Blood Drive, and more are dominating the ratings and getting renewed season after season, and so who better than Carpenter to get directly involved.

Movie Review: A Cure For Wellness

A Cure For Wellness
Director: Gore Verbinski
Screenwriter: Justin Haythe
Cast: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated R | 146 Minutes
Release Date: February 17, 2017

In Richard Fleischer’s 1973 dystopian sci-fi film Soylent Green, Charlton Heston plays an NYPD detective investigating the murder of a wealthy CEO. The investigation leads him to uncover the truth about Soylent Green, a food ration advertised to contain “high-energy plankton.” It turns out the miracle product is made of people. Human corpses are delivered to a disposal center where they are processed and converted into the very thing that keeps us alive.

If the big question behind Fleischer’s film is “What are we really eating?” then A Cure For Wellness asks, “What are we really taking?” From Gore Verbinski (The Ring, the Pirates of the Caribbean series), A Cure For Wellness is a mind-bending psychological thriller with exquisite but unsettling imagery.

Top 10 Horror Films of 2016

As a bonafide horror supergeek, 2016 was a phenomenal year. Aside from a collection of great films, horror has dominated TV and pop culture as well, with hit shows like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Scream Queens and Black Mirror. While horror fans are usually passionate about their genre, sometimes to a fault, a shocking thing happened this year. More than a few mainstream horror films received critical acclaim. Plus, between the countless streaming services out there, horror films are now more readily accessible than ever before. I was also privileged to attend two horror film festivals in New York, FEARnyc and the New York City Horror Film Festival, where I took in countless new independent feature-length and short horror films.

So, without further ado, I present my list of the Top 10 Horror Movies of 2016 (and some honorable mentions) below.
