The 40th anniversary celebration of John Carpenter’s Halloween continues with Part 2 of the officially licensed collection from Gutter Garbs; including another 8 brand new designs.
First they brought you The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh and then All the Colours of the Dark. Now, Shameless Screen Entertainment proudly presents giallo’s own royalty, the iconic Fenech-Hilton dream team, in their third sensuous outing: The Case of the Bloody Iris. Serenaded with Bruno Nicolai’s enrapturing score, this long-sought-after 70s sleaze gem, directed by Giuliano Carnimeo, is now available for your delectation.
“The killer slices without mercy!”
In 1968, George A. Romero established the modern zombie film with his raw and terrifying debut the Night of the Living Dead, one of the most well-regarded and influential horror movies of all time. Now, 50 years after it all began, there’s a new entry into the undying franchise: Day the Dead: Bloodline
“They won’t stay dead!”
Defarious is gorgeously shot, with a tinged-blue colour pallet reminiscent of 80’s retro horror, with hints of slasher genre thrown in. Pallante is able to build the atmosphere well with an easy on the eye leading lady – Janet Miranda (as Amy) – and a wonderfully large environment to broaden its scope. As Amy roams the house her visions manifest into a crazed killer or demon, which raises the questions of what’s reality and what’s only in her head. Overall Defarious hits a few marks. Not as unsettling as it thinks it is, but is a nice nod to the inspired classics of the 1980s.
“Fear is all in the mind.”
The name Ken Foree needs no introduction in the horror world. A tremendous, versatile actor who’s familiar with fans of the silver and small screen, but will always be a legend to horror fans since his breakout performance in Dawn of the Dead.
“It was the seventies and racism was as prevalent as it is today.”
On 10 December, Indicator presents William Castle at Columbia, Volume Two, the second of their limited edition blu-ray box sets featuring four weird and wonderful films from the master showman’s illustrious career with Columbia Pictures: Zotz! (1962); 13 Frightened Girls (1963); The Old Dark House (1963); and Strait-Jacket (1964). Indicator also presents Joan Crawford in another of her outrageous 1960s horror roles – Jim O’Connolly’s dark and twisted Berserk (1967).
“Your front row seat to murder!”
This long sleeve, Japanese inspired sci-fi tee from The Silence of the Lambs (made in collaboration with METHsyndicate) is available for pre-order now – for 24 hours only!
“Believe me, you don’t want Hannibal Lecter inside your head.”
Michael Myers returns in David Gordon Green’s Halloween, picking up 40 years after John Carpenter’s 1978 classic. Prepare for the highly-anticipated release with Fright-Rags’ official Halloween 2018 merchandise.
“There’s a reason we’re supposed to be afraid of this night.”
Gutter Garbs met Michael Myers, 40 years ago; they were told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding in even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. They soon realized that what was living behind his eyes was purely and simply… evil.
“It’s Halloween; everyone’s entitled to one good scare.”
Peachfuzz, the friendly wolf 🐺 has informed me that Cavity Colors have released their first licensed collection for the cult horror Creep; including three t-shirt designs, a one size fits most ‘Dad Hat’, and a ‘Peachfuzz’ enamel pin.
“You know, that moment I scared you in the woods? There was murder in your eyes, but it was like… you’re not ready to accept that yet, and I want to encourage you to embrace your inner wolf. So, take the knife, and don’t be afraid to murder…”
Director Uwe Boll shouldn’t need much of an introduction to film fans. Quite the controversial figure, it seems if he’s not making films that divide opinion, he’s pissing off the people that are.
“Independent movies are dead. What we have left are TV shows, $200mil studio movies and some Oscar contenders. The rest will be $100k movies shot by amateurs and wannabe filmmakers.”
It may not be October yet, but the Halloween season is already upon us. Set the spooky scene with Fright-Rags’ new apparel from Trick ‘r Treat, General Mills Monsters, Stephen King, and Haunters: The Art of the Scare.
