With Halloween behind us, the holidays are right around the corner. You better watch out, because Fright-Rags is coming to town with Krampus and Creepshow merchandise.
On 27 January, Indicator begins the new year with two offbeat classics of American 60s and 70s cinema and a pair of uncompromising British dramas from the 80s and 90s.
Curtis Harrington’s acclaimed Night Tide (1961); William Richert’s brilliantly off-kilter Winter Kills (1979); Paul Greengrass’ unflinching Resurrected (1989); and last but far from least, Peter Mullan’s jet-black comedy, Orphans (1998).
“Sensual ecstasy becomes supernatural terror!”

“Amazing! Startling! Shocking!”
There can be few things as psychologically damaging as being trapped in solitary confinement with someone you hate. For his follow-up to The Witch, Robert Eggers delivers a grim, hallucinatory story about two men shut up in a lighthouse tower, going slowly mad in their mutual loathing. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson are Tom Wake and Ephraim Winslow – arriving to work for a month-long shift at a remote, rain-lashed lighthouse, somewhere off the coast of 19th century Maine. Wake is a veteran lighthouse keeper (wickie), as salty a sea dog as one might wish to meet…
“There is enchantment in the light.”
Super7 is proud to present Wave 2 of their Universal Monsters 3.75″ ReAction Figures assortment. From the classic horror films, Revenge of the Creature (1955), Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Dracula (1931), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), and The Invisible Man (1933)!
“It’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive! It’s ALIVE!”
I have to admit, straight off the bat, that I’m an absolute sucker for Agatha Christie-type whodunnits, so too is self-confessed fan, writer/director Rian Johnson, as he admitted during his talk at the recent BFI London Film Festival. He certainly demonstrates his love for the genre in his spirited and inventive homage, Knives Out. Johnson knows that half the fun lies in our recognition of the rules of the game, so he immediately provides his audience with a rambling, labyrinthine, old house in the countryside, full of curiosities and knick-knacks, a wealthy patriarch, and a large family with many secrets.
“Everyone has a motive. No one has a clue.”
When writing reviews I always make a decision of if I want to reveal plot points or spoilers. This isn’t in any way to ruin the experience of the film for people who haven’t seen it, but I like to write as if you, the reader, and me are having a cup of coffee and chatting about a film we’ve just watched together. I find it a lot more engaging and intimate. So I apologise if during my reviews there’s a lot of spoilers, but that’s my process. This won’t be the case with the short film Occurrence at Mills Creek because I’d found it very difficult to fathom anything interesting?
“See me. Hear me.”
To celebrate the release of the next blood-soaked chapter in the most violent crime saga in movie history, Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell, we’re heading deep into the untamed wilds of America (with a brief detour to Belgium!) to round up the nastiest backwoods butchers and most horrific hillbillies ever committed to celluloid.
“Hello America. Did you miss me?”
Holy Crap. Dick is dead. Died last night after band practice, and his bandmates, Zeke & Earl, don’t want anybody finding out how. That’s too bad though, ‘cause news travels fast in small town Alabama, and these guys suck at covering their tracks. The authorities haven’t ID’d the body just yet, but Zeke’s wife and his daughter are suspicious already. From a screenplay by Billy Chew, director Daniel Scheinert expertly balances the hilarity and heartache of what happens when dark secrets are dragged kicking and screaming into the light.
