We've covered After Dark Films' wonderful "8 Films to Die For" series a lot on the site, so it's nice to hear the company has rekindled the venture.

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.27.15] horror

I'm always fascinated by stories of a film's reception, particularly horror films. People fainting during The Exorcist, or becoming physically ill during original screenings of Alien. It's the stuff of movie legend. But rarely are we able to find physical evidence of such events. Until, internet. [Continue reading]

Jason Widgington [Celluloid 07.27.15] horror

There is a pretty tight-knit community of horror film creators in Los Angeles, and one of them, Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), thought it would be fun if the lot of them made a Halloween-themed anthology film and started gathering the troops. It wasn’t long at all before a full slate of directors jumped aboard, including Neil Marshall (The Descent), Mike Mendez (Bi... [Continue reading]

It opens as you might expect: a couple of guys don't return from their shift at the logging company and when supervisors go looking, what they find is gruesome. Unfortunately, the newly opened logging operation has pushed all of the creatures in the forest from their natural habitat, including a monster that is now dangerously close to a nearby town guarded by Sheri...

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.23.15] scifi

One would think that after years of false starts and failed attempts, the thought of a remake/new adaptation of Logan's Run would have been abandoned but like the long gestating Neuromancer, this is another one of those projects that simply refuses to die and you just know it'll get made eventually but with so many hands in the cookie jar over the years, the likelyhoo...

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten stars in this Viking tale of blood and honour which hits theatres July 31 and then VOD August 11, 2015. From Valhalla Rising to Hammer of the Goods to this, I think its safe to say we're seeing a rise in quality Viking flicks and I'd say that's a good thing. Certainly I've enjoyed History Channel's scripted show, Vikings, and I look forward t... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.21.15] Canada horror

I was lucky enough to screen Heir a couple months back and I was very taken with it. It was truly shocking in the all the best ways, dealing with taboo subject matter in a way that only horror can do. After three shorts now, I'm definitely curious what director Richard Powell can do with feature material and a budget to match. [Continue reading]

Alejandro G. Iñárritu may have entered the public consciousness with his Oscar win last year for the spectacular Birdman but he's been making interesting and arresting movies since pretty much the beginning of his career.
