Cop Car (2015) – Jon Watts

  Releasing today from Anchor Bar on Blu-Ray and DVD is this wonderfully taut, coming of age thriller starring Kevin Bacon, James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford. Two young boys, Travis (Freedson-Jackson) and Harrison (Wellford), are off on an adventure, they’re running away from home, experimenting with swear words, and daring one another as they walk…

Cub (2014) – Jonas Govaerts

  Also releasing from Anchor Bay today is this film that hails from Belgium. The blurb had me from the outset. Young Sam (Maurice Luijten) is troubled and imaginative. He’s off on a camping trip with his local cub scout troop, with Kris (Titus De Voogdt), Peter (Stef Aerts) and Jasmijn (Evelien Bosmans) as their…

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…
