Review: Turbo Kid, welcome the a rad wasteland

Turbo-Kid

The talented triad of François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell have created a feature film out of their immensely popular short film T for Turbo—originally found in the horror anthology ABC’s of Death—and the result is an ’80s infused blast of bloody cinema. It’s easy to see why the trio’s latest effort became such a fan favorite during its festival run—the film oozes style and over-the-top enthusiasm, creating an atmosphere of bloody fights and wacky characters. Turbo Kid is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where a comic book fan dons the persona of his favourite hero to save his new friend and fight a tyrannical overlord.

Insane Baskin trailer opens a world of madness

Baskin

I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot about Can Evrenol’s Turkish horror film Baskin, which is due to  premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in a couple of weeks. The reason? It looks utterly insane. While the trailer is cut down to a brisk minute and thirty seconds, there’s a whole lot going on. Baskin looks like a straight up nightmare, and one filled with horrifying images and bloody monsters. If the film is half as good as this trailer, we could be in for something truly terrifying. And to top it all off, the poster is just awesome! Continue Reading ›

The Month in Horror Releases: September

the-green-inferno

While we can’t quite smell the burning leaves of October just yet, you couldn’t have handpicked a better line-up to send us into the Halloween season than what the month of September has to offer. Seriously, this month is stacked. Not only are we seeing the release of one of the very best horror films of the year in Goodnight Mommy, but Eli Roth’s long delayed The Green Inferno will finally see the light of day, and that just barely scratches the surface. But before we get started, here’s a quick recap of what I watched in August:

Review: Goddess of Love, the horrors of a damaged mind

Goddess-of-Love-Alexis

Jon Knautz—director of the fantastic Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer—returns to the genre with Goddess of Love, an intensely fueled psychothriller that dissects a woman in love and the damaged mind it leaves behind. It’s a wickedly disturbing little gem from Knautz, who has not only crafted his best film yet, but one of the biggest surprises of the year. In it, a mentally unstable woman goes down a path of destruction when she suspects her lover has left her for another woman. It’s a terrific recipe for a disaster of a love story and Knautz has no problem going to some dark places. Continue Reading ›

Some Kind of Hate trailer conjures an unstoppable force

Some-Kind-of-hate

Director Adam Egypt Mortimer recently saw his feature film debut World Premiere at this year’s Stanley Film Festival, and now that we finally have a release date, the film’s first ever trailer is here in all its disturbing glory! With so many great indie horror films already out and even more on the horizon, Some Kind of Hate has been lost in the swarm of releases. Hopefully this trailer solves that little problem because it looks like a wicked good time and one that breathes new life into the slasher genre. Continue Reading ›

Genre-slashing The Final Girls trailer is an awesome cliche

FG_07662.dng

Better late than never, right? One of the most talked about genre films of the year goes to Todd Strauss-Schulson’s festival hit The Final Girls, a movie so goddamn ridiculous looking that it could very well end up being one of the most unique movies of the year, despite being fueled by horror tropes. I’m probably not the first person to say this, but The Final Girls looks like the Last Action Hero of horror movies, only good (sorry, 5-year-old me!).  Continue Reading ›

Out this Friday, Jonas Alexander Arnby’s When Animals Dream (my review) is a wonderful coming-of-age tale with a monster of a heart and it has just released a new trailer that deserves your attention. The film marks Arnby’s feature film debut and it’s a solid addition to the storied werewolf genre, offering a look into the life of a girl trying to accept who (and what) she is. Watch the trailer below! Continue Reading ›

Hellions trailer is a Halloween-set nightmare

Hellions

With October being as stacked as it is for horror movies, it’s no wonder that Bruce McDonald’s trick-or-treat chiller Hellions opted for a late September bow, officially kicking the Halloween season off early this year. While the film’s original trailer has been floating around the web for quite some time, I held off in sharing it because it featured a pretty massive spoiler that I’m thinking is best left to discover while watching the film for the first time. That said, this new (and improved) trailer is a much better, spoiler free look at McDonald’s return to horror (finally!). Continue Reading ›

Blood-soaked red band trailer for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is insanity

Scouts-Guide

Christopher Landon’s Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse has just dropped its totally NSFW red-band trailer for the undead comedy and it’s one nasty slice of 2-minute gold. In it, we see a handful of kids take on the responsibility of saving mankind from a swarm of cannibal corpses. The trailer is utterly fantastic, featuring exploding heads, zombie strippers and evil cats. Need I say more? Continue Reading ›

Groovy Ash vs. Evil Dead poster

Ash vs Evil Dead

Ash vs. Evil Dead is revving up for its premiere in just a couple of months, and with an official trailer already released, it was only a matter of time before they unveil the poster for the trilogy-turned TV series. The poster is, of course, pretty groovy and features our deadly trio out to save the world! Continue Reading ›
