The Whistling Psychopath: Twisted Nerve

by Blood Raven, MoreHorror.com

Think back to season one of American Horror Story. Remember Tate walking down the hallways of his high school just before his shooting spree? What was the song playing in the background? 

If you know what I'm talking about, most of you are thinking it was the whistling song from Kill Bill when "nurse" Elle was on her way to poison Beatrix Kiddo with a syringe while she was still asleep in a coma. Your guess would be right, except it would also be wrong.

The whistling song is actually the main sound track of an old 1969 British Horror film, Twisted Nerve, composed by the talented Bernard Herrmann. THAT'S RIGHT! It didn't originate with Kill Bill.

After seeing Twisted Nerve, it makes sense why this song has been reused with other "unsuspecting" killers…

Twisted Nerve is the tale of a troubled young man named Martin who leaves home as the harmless Georgie, his alter ego, when he befriends an attractive young woman named Susan. Overcome by obsession, and trying to escape the pressures of his family, Martin is the unsuspecting psychopath whistling as he goes off on his killing sprees.

'American Mary' Film Review

American Mary by Shannon Hilson, MoreHorror.com

Although I absolutely love horror as a genre, even I have to admit that I get tired of watching the same old thing. After all, a person can only watch so many remakes, knock-offs, and rehashed ideas before they’re really craving something a little different. American Mary – the latest offering from twin sister directors Jen and Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk) -- presents horror fans with the chance to explore territory that’s somewhat familiar, but in a way that’s modern, fresh, and totally in step with some of today’s hottest trends in body modification.

The plot follows the life of smart, attractive medical student Mary Mason (Katherine Isabelle). Like many young people, Mary is working hard to make something of herself and earn her medical degree. However, there are more than a few obstacles standing in her way and making it hard for her. These include a professor she can’t seem to stop infuriating, as well as a pile of bills that only seems to keep getting higher. Mary’s life takes an interesting new turn when she applies for a job at a local strip club as a solution to her financial woes, but winds up having to use her budding medical skills to perform an emergency underground surgery instead.

From there, Mary finds herself lured into the exciting but gruesome world of underground radical body modification. Over time, her talents as a surgeon find her running a highly profitable underground business and meeting a wealth of interesting new clients. However, things naturally aren’t just that simple. American Mary is the story of what happens when a very normal young medical student makes the decision to descend into a dark, but utterly fascinating new world in search of the almighty dollar.

Exclusive: Psychological horror film 'Seventy-Nine' DVD, Cable and VOD rights acquired by Magic Elevator

by Seth Metoyer, MoreHorror.com

Magic Elevator has acquired DVD, cable and VOD rights to psychological horror film Seventy-Nine for November 2013 release.

The film will first be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, followed by other platforms. Check out the full details and trailer below.

From The Press Release:
LOGLINE: In an abandoned mental hospital, a series of secret government experiments are being conducted on a new type of brainwashing – a project code-named ‘Limes’. ‘Limes’ is an ancient term describing a borderline between the civilized and barbaric world.

The movie was produced by Berenika Bailey and Jeff Solema.

Says Berenika Bailey: "We chose "Seventy-Nine" to produce from the hundreds of scripts we receive every month at Magic Elevator Productions because it had a philosophical edge to it. It's a smart, psychological type of horror, not the usual slasher film. The film is about new methods of brainwashing, seven tunnels of reality, mind manipulation and conspiracy theories".

"Seventy-Nine" was directed by polish writer and director, Filip Maciejewicz, who has several international thrillers, and action and horror movies under his belt.

Filip Maciejewicz explains: "The tagline of the film describes the title well: My number is 79, I've been erased. Seventy-Nine is the number of the key patients in the mental hospital that are involved in the experimental science project".

Seventy-Nine stars: Bo Linton, Adrian Voo, Jonathan Rosenthal, Omar Hansen, Christine Springett, Caroline Attwood, Athena Baumeister, Velta Moore, Kathinka Van Puten and Patrick Edward Wynne.

First 'Curse of Chucky' images released: Film debuts on DVD/Blu-ray this Fall

Curse of ChuckyBy David Harkness, MoreHorror.com

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm stoked about the upcoming CHUCKY release.

Maybe it's nostalgia, or perhaps I just want to see a 'Good Guys' doll murder the crap out of people. At any rate, Curse of Chucky is will debut on Blu-ray and DVD later this fall.

Check out the first official images that have been released below the synopsis.

CURSE OF CHUCKY SYNOPSIS
He’s back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood), she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America’s favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.

World War Z (2013) review

World War Z reviewby Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

As a seasoned horror film buff, World War Z just did not look like the feature made for me and between the action-oriented focus of the trailers to news of the troubled production that went over late reshoots and re-writes, the film gave the impression it was going to be a weak and messy affair.

So, let it be known that the old saying “Don’t judge a book by the cover” actually rings true as World War Z managed to be quite the thrilling – and surprisingly intense – little apocalyptic horror / action flick.

It wastes no precious time slowly building to an outbreak, choosing instead to briefly introduce the main characters we’ll follow through this nightmare before throwing them – and the audience – into complete and utter chaos as all hell breaks loose in one of the film’s thrilling and uneasy set pieces.

From there on, World War Z rarely lets up, moving from one suspenseful set piece to the next, only letting the audience a moment to catch their breath while the story plot points are delivered before rushing off into the next excruciating build of tension.

As for the infected themselves, gore hounds might be put off by the lack of the gallons of blood and fistful of gizzards (this is a PG-13 flick, after all) but surely any zombie fan can admire these ferocious buggers that swarm like army ants as they hungrily leap off rooftops and smash their heads through the windshields of cars just to get a single bite? I know I found several nice little touches to these zombies here.

So what you’ve got here is a pretty solid horror film that wonderfully builds tension and comes up with a few great ideas for the zombies themselves – but make no mistake, this is a film with a handful of unfortunate issues that pop throughout in the form of such problems as plot holes and illogical moments.

On top of that, the film suffers from one of the many re-writes it undertook and an excellent example of this would be the climax of the film – a baffling, rushed ending that feels like a huge chunk was cut out of the story and left to later open the inevitable sequel.

'Truth or Dare? A Critical Madness' (1986) Review

Truth or Dare 1986Reviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

“Truth or Dare? A Critical Madness” (1986)
Directed By: Tim Ritter
Written By: Tim Ritter

Starring: John Brace (Mike Strauber), Mary Fanaro (Sharon Strauber), Bruce Gold (Jerry Powers), A.J. McLean (Little Mike)

I didn't know what to expect going into this movie but I overall enjoyed it for what it was worth. Truth or Dare? A Critical Madness? is a low budget movie from B movie director Tim Ritter. For its faults, the low budget camera work works in many scenes to bring out the atmosphere in Mike Strauber’s collapse from sanity to insanity. This movie is rather difficult to come by. The original VHS commands some money on the collectors market and was released on DVD in 2003 but has gone out of print.

The plot centers around a man named Mike who comes home one day to find his wife having sex with one of his best friends. The whole event sends Mike over the edge entirely to the point he goes on a killing spree as it triggers events from his childhood. This low budget movies goes for a psychological slasher fare and for the most part pulls if off. I am typically a fan of low budget movies and this one gave me mixed feelings. My biggest criticism is the movie is stretched to fit the 90 minute format when it could have been condensed shorter to make it work instead of padding the plot out.

John Brace as Mike Strauber keeps the movie interesting. Mike enters madness fairly quickly after discovering his wife having an affair. The best scene with him was his moment in the woods with a fire and he imagines a girl from his past playing a game of truth or dare with him. The dares aren’t small ones either as he begins to cut off body parts with no restraint. The surrounding atmosphere makes it a solid scene.

10 Gauge Shakespeare AND MOnsterworks66 Team Up to produce the promo trailer for 'Slaughterbox'

by David Harkness, MoreHorror.com

10 Gauge Shakespeare AND MOnsterworks66 have teamed up to co-produce Slaughterbox, a sharp new horror feature by Indie actor/writer/producer Hugh Phoenix Cross. Check out the full details below.

From the Press Release
Cross’ production company, 10 Gauge Shakespeare, and Maria Olsen’s MOnsterworks66, are currently in pre-production and set to shoot principle photography of the promo trailer in August. Concept art and storyboards are being prepped by artist, Jacqueline Quintanar, casting is underway, and the Box itself is in the final stages of completion.

SlaughterBox is the story of Adam, the first man, and his descendants' ongoing struggle against the demon Lilith (played by Olsen), best known for her roles in Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Vile, and Paranormal Activity 3. After four-thousand years of his ancestor’s failed attempts to destroy Lilith, the lineage of modern-day Adam (played by Cross) finally catches up to him when his wife and daughter are taken by the ancient demon that is now coming after him.

Adam must choose between fleeing or turning to face his fear, knowing he may not survive the battle. As he implements his monstrous plan to end the millennia of torment that his ancestors endured before him, he finds out there is more to him and his stone faced, ex-military “Subject Six” than he ever have imagined. At the sacrifice of many lives and spilled blood, Adam must transform himself entirely if he is to have any chance of regaining what was taken from him - nothing will stop him from becoming the Creator of the ever-evolving SlaughterBox.

Indie thriller/horror film 'Reunion' in Production

Reunionby MoreHorror.com

The horror/thriller Reunion is currently seeking production support through CrowdFunding site Indiegogo.

Reunion is an independent film spearheaded by a diverse team of professional industry veterans. Check out the full details below, as well as the trailer.

From The Press Release:
It's a cold, stormy and thunderous night. Trapped in his own home, former rock stars Brad Norton and Grant Foley prepare for the return of their infamous band when a strange woman, Mia, shows up at their door looking for her son she calls "Alan." Unbeknownst to them, she is guided by a dark spirit and is convinced Brad kidnapped her long-lost son.

The filmmakers have assembled an experienced crew from Emmy-award winning TV shows, studios such as Lionsgate, and feature films such as "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Star Trek: Into Darkness," and "The Dark Knight." Starting with a rock solid screenplay written by Bert Havird and led by Producer Thelonius Alexander and Director Shawn Chou, the philosophy of the filmmakers was to look for undiscovered talent that wouldn’t break the bank. After laboring through months of casting, they recruited talented up-and-coming actors Sarah Schreiber, Cara Santana, Reign Morton, Arielle Brachfeld and Leif Gantvoort. The independent movie also features a young heartthrob Jack Turner in his debut as well as veteran actor-producer Maria Olsen, who plays Mia, who is best known for her role as Mrs Dodds/The Fury in Fox’s “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief”.

“We rely on our team’s passion and dedication to bring our vision to life,” says Shawn. “The most important thing is to tell a story about a ghost who tries to reunite his lookalike twin with this mysterious murderer. It’s filled with twists and turns. Ultimately, we ask tough questions about why people repress their memories to cope with life.”
