Ejecta (2014) – Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele

  Our friend Julian Richings gives a tour de force performance in the first release from Anchor Bay this week. The film itself, Ejecta, is a bit of hit and miss b-movie affair, but Richings, himself, is perfectly on point giving his all, and elevating every scene he’s in, which is practically all of them….

Suburban Gothic (2014) – Richard Bates Jr.

  Available now from Anchor Bay is this wonderfully quirky horror comedy. And let me emphasize the quirky, if you’re expecting a typical entry into this genre you are bound to be in for a bit of a shock. Happily, the film’s trailer sells its sense of humor really well. The film is also stocked…

Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story (2015) – James Moran

  Available now from Anchor Bay is this creepy feature film that is based on the Marble Hornets web series. It also features another internet sensation the modern myth of the Slender Man (played by Doug Jones) though the character is not referred to that by name though the course of the film. In fact…

Inner Demons (2014) – Seth Grossman

  Releasing today from Anchor Bay is this little horror film that follows through on an idea I’ve often toyed with writing up myself, the idea of possession and addiction… science vs. faith, all set in one person’s life. A found footage film, a genre that has been beaten to death, resurrected like Jason, and beaten again,…

6 Degrees of Hell (2012) – Joe Raffa

  Releasing from Anchor Bay today is this little horror film, that I’m sorry to say, is probably best left unseen. Part advertisement for an actual place, the Hotel of Horror, check it out here, and part, what feels like some poorly written and edited Fox television show from the 90s, 6 Degrees of Hell…

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014) – Kiah Roache-Turner

  Available on blu-ray and DVD today from Anchor Bay is this fun, Australian, B-movie action-horror take on the zombie genre, which feels a little like Mad Max meets Romero, and is bloody as it is often funny. This time the zombies (who look like a cross between the traditional zombie, and the Deadites of Evil Dead) are…

Spring (2014) – Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead

  Available today from Anchor Bay is this unique film from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, their follow-up to the delightfully mind-bending Resolution. Available on DVD and Blu-Ray this is a gentle, and beautifully filmed concoction that marries the romance film with the monster movie. At the story’s heart is Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci), whose…

Hellmouth (2014) – John Geddes

  Also available from Anchor Bay today is this interesting tale from the writer of Pontypool, Tony Burgess and director John Geddes. This one is going to be a fairly polarizing film, you’re either going to like it or hate it, and it all depends on your mind-set going into it. There is mythology at…

The Vatican Exorcisms (2013) –  Joe Marino 

  Releasing today from Anchor Bay is a horror film that takes on a subject I personally feel still hasn’t been treated right in either the horror genre or as the subject of a documentary, and yet it is rife with story potential. This one attempts to combine both of those genres, purporting to be…

Avenged (2013) – Micheal S. Ojeda

  Releasing from Anchor Bay today, was this supernatural revenge thriller, that surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. I thought it would be a little enjoyable, but I found myself really getting into this one. Zoe (the lovely Amanda Adrienne) is a deaf/mute girl on a road trip to spend some time with her…

The Missing (2014) – Season 1

  Releasing today from Anchor Bay, on both DVD and Blu-Ray is the Starz/BBC co-pro miniseries, The Missing, starring James Nesbitt, Frances O’Connor, and Tcheky Karyo. Over eight episodes, beautifully presented in HD on blu-ray, with an incredibly sharp and clear image, the viewer is put through a taut, brutal, honest and emotional journey that…

Echoes (2014) – Nils Timm

  Releasing today from Anchor Bay is Echoes, a film that was an official selection of both the New York City International Film Festival and the FilmQuest Film Festival where it garnered awards for best actress, best director and best screenplay. This well-produced and acted supernatural thriller ends up being fairly predictable, but its pacing and acting balance out a…
