The present becomes strangely entangled with the past when Lucy’s aunt dies and she must leave the peaceful countryside to live with trendy relatives in London. In the attic of her cousins’ old Victorian house she is confronted by Alice, a girl from the past, and discovers that time has rolled back a hundred years.
Vixen by Micheline Pitt, the LA-based design house known for vintage-style fashion inspired by 1950s bad girls and ‘80s flair, is thrilled to have recently launched their officially licensed collection celebrating everyone’s favorite paranormal investigators: Ghostbusters!
“Being a kid of the 80’s, I grew up watching the original Ghostbusters film religiously. Like anyone who watched this movie, I wanted to be a Ghostbuster.”
Funny, heartfelt, and unconventional are three words that sum up the Irish horror comedy Extra Ordinary. Rose Dooley reluctantly has to use her talents in talking to ghosts (and sending them to the afterlife) after Christian Winter, a one-hit-wonder rock star makes a deal with the devil to be on top again.
Despite its dark subject matter, there isn’t anything really scary about this film, and if it wasn’t for the language and sexual content, it could be rated 12. The humour throughout most of the film is more silly than laugh-out-loud. Each character has their own quirky trait, like Rose and her awkwardness.
“Putting the normal in paranormal.”
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the 40th anniversary original score release of John Carpenter’s The Fog. The Fog is a 1980 American supernatural horror film directed, co-written, and scored by John Carpenter.
“When the fog rolls in… the terror begins!”
Infernum is a ghost story from director Dutch Marich; the tale of a mysterious phenomenon, in which sounds portend the appearance of apparitions.
There is a real-world phenomenon where strange, mysterious sounds ring across towns or regions heralding the arrival of something otherworldly. These haunting sounds happen across the globe and when heard, people disappear or die.
“Okay, so… my show is based around a paranormal phenomenon that I believe is responsible for the disappearance of my parents.”
WWE/MMA legend Phil “CM Punk” Brooks gets his first starring role in this bloody and demented haunted house tale from one of the strongest voices in modern indie-horror, Travis Stevens. Bursting pipes, rotting walls, and unidentifiable slime were not what Don Koch (Phil Brooks) expected when he convinced his wife Liz (Trieste Kelly Dunn) that he could rehab their new Victorian home himself. In over his head, under duress, and tempted by his old weaknesses, Don soon discovers that the house has its own dark, sordid history and won’t be so easy to renovate after all…
“Home is where Hell is.”
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.”
Lock your doors. Bolt your windows. There’s something in The Fog! Gutter Garbs have released collections for John Carpenter’s 1980 cult classic, and Jackie Kong’s ultimate in killer cuisine, 1987’s Blood Diner.
“100 years ago, it moved across a small town creating a terror no human being should ever live to see again! Now, it has returned…”
In March 2019 Arrow Video is re-releasing Hideo Nakata’s Ringu in celebration of its 20th anniversary; restored from the original negative in vivid high definition.
Ringu is based on a novel by Koji Suzuki, (known as the ‘Japanese Stephen King’) and for any western viewer this film is the starting point for any exploration of modern Asian horror.
“How did the rumours about the video even start in the first place? This kind of thing… It doesn’t start by one person telling a story. It’s more like everyone’s fear just takes on a life of its own.”
From a dimension beyond the living, Fright-Rags has new merchandise to scare you to death; featuring Poltergeist, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, The Amityville Horror, and Predator.
“Some things have to be believed to be seen.”
