“I don’t know what’s real, and what’s not.”

“You can’t worm your way out.”
If you were living on this planet in the 80s or 90s, chances are you have fond memories of your local video store. Stuck On VHS: A Visual History of Video Store Stickers brings the VHS era back to life through its small but essential ephemera: rental stickers.
“A huge wealth of amazingness is disintegrating before our eyes, and this time it isn’t art from 100 years ago, it is from the 1980s.”
Are you ready for more of the worst of the worst? Yes, the process of compiling this subjective list has been self-inflicted, but I needed my own personal purge. So, without further ado, here are the worst horror movies of the decade; from 2015 to 2019.
“Transcend your expectations.”
I have watched a lot of shite during the past decade, and whilst I can appreciate schlock, the following movies really got under my skin. This is my own personal purge; from 2010 to 2014.
“You have a darkness that rivals my own… It will be a very special pleasure to rip you apart.”
Garageland have released a limited edition Misery print, designed by Jack Gregory, and a 45th anniversary Young Frankenstein print, designed by Alex Zablotsky.
“Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now, he’s writing to stay alive.”
A Zombie Christmas Musical… Anna and the Apocalypse has it all, and no doubt that’s why it took 6 years to make after the release of the short film Zombie Musical. Sadly one of the writers (Ryan McHenry) died before this 2017 Scottish film was released and it never received a UK cinema run. So unless you are a fan of the genre who travels to independent festivals you may never have heard of it. But, you should do. The zombies and special effects are great with plenty of gore and some really interesting fight scenes; particularly in the bowling alley which is where my favourite kill takes place.
“She’ll Slash. She’ll Stab. She’ll Sing.”
Inspired by a real-life race that is still held annually in Japan, Samurai Marathon is an epic sword slasher from director Bernard Rose and the team behind 13 Assassins and The Last Emperor.
Visionary director Takashi Miike also returns to the big screen with the wildly entertaining Tarantino-esque crime thriller First Love.
“For 260 years, Japan cut itself off from the world.”
The inaugural Limited Edition Blu-rays from Anti-Worlds Releasing, produced in association with Powerhouse Films, will be available on 24 February 2020 – including Aaron Schimberg’s Chained for Life (2018); Isabella Eklöf’s Holiday (2018); and Joel Potrykus’ Relaxer (2018).
“Made with the same love and attention to detail as the releases in Powerhouse’s Indicator series.”
I’m well into my 30’s now. That means I was lucky enough to be in my pre-teens when Fred Dekker was still directing films and TV. He may be known by most people as either the director of the entertaining Night of the Creeps or calamitous Robocop 3, but sandwiched in between these two totally dissimilar yarns was 1987’s The Monster Squad.
The titular “Monster Squad” is a small group of horror-loving kids, led by Sean, who run their affairs from a poster-adorned treehouse.
