Extra Butter and Diadora Pay Tribute to Giallo Horror Classics With Sneaker Release This Week

Do you believe in life after death? Do you believe spirits can communicate with the living? Welcome back to DEAD Time. I hope you left a light on for me. In a previous installment of DEAD Time, I shared my experiences at the haunted St. Albans Sanitorium in Radford, Virginia. During my time at St. Albans, I gave paranormal tours, worked at the haunted attraction every Halloween, and conducted paranormal investigations in my free time. During these investigations, I made numerous recordings using a simple digital recorder. I would sit...

‘In My Mother’s Skin’ Sundance Review – An Ambitiously Grim Horror Fairy Tale

Squelching sounds radiate over a dark screen as we fade in on a humanoid creature chowing down on a victim’s throat. After pulling away and exposing an inhumanly long tongue, the creature begins to gag, vomiting up a small black bird. So begins Kenneth Dagatan‘s In My Mother’s Skin, a horror fairy tale that will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Guillermo del Toro’s 2006 masterpiece Pan’s Labyrinth, but has a much more sinister side in store for audiences who are willing to sit through its more deliberately paced plot machinations. Set in...

‘Run Rabbit Run’ Sundance Review – Aussie Horror Drama Is ‘The Babadook’-Lite

The horror genre has always been an excellent vehicle for metaphors for grief and trauma. After all, what better genre is there to take our emotional monsters and make them literal? We’ve seen a rise in these types of films over the past decade, with particular standouts being films like The Babadook (review), Hereditary (review) and Relic (review). Daina Reid‘s Run Rabbit Run is the latest addition to this sub-genre but, despite a committed lead performance from Sarah Snook (HBO’s Succession), it succumbs to predictable genre tropes and offers a severe lack of narrative...

Bloody Disgusting-Produced Sci-Fi Horror ‘Kids vs. Aliens’ Is Now in Theaters!

The last time Jason Voorhees slashed onto the screen, Barack Obama had just taken office as president, Michael Jackson was still alive, and Scream was only a trilogy. While we await the “Crystal Lake” prequel series from Peacock, I was fortunate enough to experience the first six Friday the 13th movies back-to-back on the big screen at the Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Friday the 13th Murder-thon in Brookline, MA on January 13. The event was similar to last year’s A Nightmare on Elm Street all-night marathon. This time, however, only half...

‘Sssshhh…’ – Bollywood Remake of ‘Scream’ Becomes a SCREAMBOX SVOD Exclusive on February 3!

Hatchet for the Honeymoon doesn’t behave like other gialli. This Italian-Spanish movie does something unconventional at the beginning; the identity of the killer is revealed to the audience. It goes against tradition to spoil the mystery so early, but after feeling restrained while working under producer Dino De Laurentiis only a year earlier, director Mario Bava sought a fresh start in 1968. This almost forgotten movie was that creative reset, though it wouldn’t be until years later that everyone better appreciated this late entry in Bava’s unique oeuvre. After taking...

Breaking Down the ‘Scream VI’ Trailer [Halloweenies Podcast]

Before listening to this week’s discussion, be sure to dive into last week’s episode of Horror Bytes: our indie showcase show! In Space, no one can hear you stomp. Space horror has always scratched a similar terrifying itch for me, not unlike aquatic horror. Both settings are inherently isolating, and inhospitable locals are shrouded in darkness, concealing god knows what kind of terrors. The lack of oxygen is also slightly problematic. And while Dead Space certainly wasn’t the first to capitalize on the volatility of space, it was one of...

‘Irreversible: Straight Cut’ Trailer Previews the Chronological Version of Gaspar Noé’s Movie

Gaspar Noé‘s harrowing, unforgettable movie Irreversible celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and Studiocanal is bringing the film back to life with Noe’s new “Straight Cut,” which premiered at the Venice Film Festival back in 2019.
