Saint Maud (2019, UK) Review

Saint Maud (2019, UK) Review

Producer Jason Blum was quoted as saying, “There are not a lot of female directors period, and even less who are inclined to do horror”. It wasn’t long before Blum had to backtrack on his statement when it was pointed out to him how many female directors there were in horror, all of which were eligible to create imaginative horror features. Recently added to that group is Rose Glass, who has set her first feature, Saint Maud, in the traditionally male-dominated horror genre and was named the winner of the IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Bursary Award.

“Never waste your pain.”

Lloyd Kaufman’s SHAKESPEARE’S SHITSTORM Screening Virtually at Fantasia International Film Festival 2020!

Lloyd Kaufman's SHAKESPEARE'S SHITSTORM Screening at Fantasia International Film Festival 2020!

In 1996, Troma adapted Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet as Tromeo and Juliet; effectively a faithful adaptation of the play with a lot more sex and violence. Fast forward to Fantasia 2020, and Troma have the world premiere of another Bard production, this time an adaptation of The Tempest set against the U.S. opioid crisis. Lloyd Kaufman celebrates Troma’s 45th – and his 50th – year of making movies by taking on Big Pharma, addiction, and an intolerance of social media.

“We don’t care about these people’s wellbeing. We just want to get them hooked and sky high! Then have them repeat until they up and die.”

Luz (2018, Germany) Review

Luz (2018, Germany) Review

Luz is a cryptic, supernatural chiller and the directorial debut from writer-director Tilman Singer. It hearkens back to the horror style of the 1980s, offering grainy 16mm film, a creepy mood and an unsettling, synth-heavy score. It is the kind of film that will be enjoyed by fans of David Lynch or Peter Strickland, but Singer creates his own brand of surreal eccentricity. It’s challenging to describe Luz’s narrative because it’s far from straightforward. The film begins with a long-fixed take – a Chilean-born taxi driver called Luz, staggers into a German police station.

“My girlfriend has a very special gift.”

Shudder has announced that it has acquired all rights in its territories to horror comedy Scare Package, from creators Aaron B. Koontz and Cameron Burns. The anthology film, which delighted audiences at numerous festivals, features seven gleefully ghoulish tales from a range of horror subgenres. In Scare Package, Chad, the owner of Rad Chad’s Horror Emporium, recounts a series of bone-chilling, blood-splattered tales to illustrate the rules of the horror genre to his newest employee. Each story takes aim at different tropes, paying homage to and subverting the timeless clichés of the beloved genre.

How to Survive (2013, Eko Software) PC Review

Released in 2013, How to Survive is a survival horror, action role-playing video game that has not aged well in a market flooded with zombie-themed action-fare. I’m surprised this even has a sequel!

“Thanks to my survival guide, you will get through this.”
