Silent Hill Takes Seed

Lifelong fans of the Silent Hill franchise have endured more than their share of disappointment over the years, what with lacklustre sequels (2 being the obvious exception) and terrible film adaptations, but they remain loyal to the franchise. Understandably so, as for every “Downpour” there’s a P.T. and for every “Book Of Memories” there’s fan service to make amends (such as the recent ‘pay what you want’ promotion for an album of music inspired by). One …

The Score (74)

We kick off this week’s edition of the score with a sinister poem about a nine year old boy who, while roaming the streets of an alternate London late at night, is bitten by a mysterious creature. Upon returning home the child falls asleep, only to awaken an entirely different beast. Suffice to say his parents suffer the worst of it. Sony are ramping up their promotional machine in order to raise awareness of the pending release date for their PS4-exclusiv…

Freaky Friday

Isn’t it always the way? You spend years waiting for a maniac to come along and slaughter you and all your friends, then two come along at once! Regular readers may recall our enthusiasm for upcoming online multiplayer murder simulation “Summer Camp: Slasher vol 1”, where players are tasked with surviving an’ 80s horror film homage while one lucky player attempts to slice and dice them. The game plays out in a virtual Camp Crystal lake (in all but name) an…

Grim Up North

What better way to escape the unforgiving cold, grey skies and biting wind than refusing to leave the house, huddling up to your PC screen and indulging in a horror gaming session? Especially if said game is heavily influenced by The Shadow Over Innsmouth and plays out in an unforgivingly cold, grey sky-covered Yorkshire village? It’s like going outside, inside!

15 Seconds Of Terror

Is it just me, or are horror films getting shorter? While 80-90 minutes remains the standard for full-length features, horror shorts are getting ever more inventive, and ever more compact. As if yesterday’s 1MINUTENIGHTMARE web series wasn’t concise enough, writer/director Jaiden Frost comes along with a whole new concept, and an even brisker runtime. Frost is the first horror filmmaker to have an instagram channel devoted to creating and distributing what…

Writer/director Bryon Blakey’s ultra-low-budget satirical splatterfest PMS COP was one of our favourite indie outings of last year. You can read our review here, but suffice to say it’s the kind of cult labour of love our industry needs more of. To that end, we’re happy to point you in the direction of Blakey’s new Kickstarter campaign, which intends to raise funds to help promote the film and take it to various festivals throughout 2015. A worthy cause if…

Something Under The Christmas Tree

If there’s one thing missing from Christmas Day, it’s elf-killing carnage. Thankfully, writer/director Danny Villanueva, Jr. shares this opinion, as you’ll see in his festive-themed frightfest SOMETHING UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE.

The Score (72)

What better way to start the last Saturday before the big family-friendly festive day than immersing yourself in a fine selection of digitised gore?
