Frolic Pictures' horror-comedy 'Teachers' Day' filming

Teachers DayBy Seth Metoyer, MoreHorror.com

Frolic Pictures and Dismal Productions are in production of the upcoming horror-comedy Teachers' Day. Writer/Director Jared Masters told MoreHorror.com that the film is "1/3 done filming."

Keep an eye out for the poster which will be released soon and find out more details below.

From The Press Release:

Frolic Pictures Presents... The film you've been waiting for; a tawdry mix of a sinister slasher, with a double dose of comedic camp, coupled with Hollywood's grade A soon-to-be Scream Queens (for now we'll call them princesses).

What better holiday than Teachers' Day for a jilted high school educator to snap and go on a pointless killing spree, plucking off young lovelies one-by-one at their slumber party, where no boys are allowed.

Unstoppable writer/director Jared Masters admits that out of the five features he's shot, this one's the most fun he's ever had, thanks to an amazing all-star teen cast compiled of the sensational Savannah Matlow, the alluring Nikole Howell, the All-American Courtney Rood, the epitome of grace and poise Danika Galindo, the girl you'd love to meet Lindsay Lamb, and the angel in disguise Abby Summers.

The film also stars the strickingly handsome Bruce Kade, as Mr. Anderson, and the beautiful boy wonder Andrew Phillips, as Luke Dalton, the jock you love to hate.

'Demons' (1985) Review

Demons 1985Review by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

“Demons” (1985)
Directed By: Lamberto Bava
Written By: Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, Franco Ferrini, Dardano Sacchetti

Starring: Urbano Barberini (George), Natasha Hovey (Cheryl), Karl Zinny (Ken), Fiore Argento (Hannah), Paola Cozzo (Kathy), Fabiola Toledo (Carmen), Nicoletta Elmi (Ingrid), Stelio Candelli (Frank), Nicole Tessier (Ruth) Geretta Geretta (Rosemary), Bobby Rhodes (Tony), Guidi Baldi (Tommy), Bettini Ciampolini (Nina), Giuseppe Mauro Cruciano (Hot Dog), Sally Day (Liz)

“Demons” is one of the definitive horror movies for any fan of Italian horror films. It was one of the first Italian films I ever watched several years ago and instantly became one of my favorites. It’s not perfect by any means but I don’t think that was the intention. The movie makes up for any flaws with its superb practical effects that constantly keeps the story moving in its speedy pace.

The movie takes place primarily inside a movie theater in Berlin. The movie becomes a real life experience when a lady who finds a mask in the exhibits gets infected and becomes a demon. She helps spread the infection to others while a small group that is left to finds safe haven as the demon’s numbers grow.

In terms of plot, this movie doesn’t have much of one. There is a movie theater. One small event spreads to the others and you have a large blood bath. If the gore and the suspense weren’t so good, this movie would be unbearable to watch.

The characters are fairly forgettable though some are pretty entertaining. This movie is a B movie not meant to be held in esteem for its acting. At times, some cheesy rock music plays in random places. To make up for it, the atmosphere is top form here and very gothic in places.

'THE COLLECTION' Movie Review

The Collection ReviewReviewed By Rick O’Shea, MoreHorror.com

Directed by: Marcus Dunstan
Starring: Josh Stewart, Emma Fitzpatrick, Christopher McDonald, Lee Tergesen

Synopsis: After an ex-con escapes the clutches of a serial killer he’s blackmailed by a secret service operation to lead his previous captor to justice.

Review: From the opening credits The Collection ignites with pulse hammering action refusing to relent until the final sequence. The editing and cinematography are congruent in providing extraordinary degrees of exposition. We learn a great deal of the background to this story in very few short minutes. Newscasters around the dial are covering the grisly events transpired as a result of the killer. We as the audience are compelled to find out more about the circumstances unfolded, investing us deeper on a subconscious level into the film.

The killer is ominous, masked, silent and infernally ruthless like many other iconic figures in Slasher films. An antagonist of this caliber could easily cement their immortality in the annals of horror history right along with Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers and Leatherface. What sets our villain apart from the rest is his innovation and attention to detail.

Our believability factor is unhampered with far-fetched plot points. The killer’s insatiable lust for death is exemplified through lack of discrimination in his victims. Whether male, female, child or elderly, back ground is of no consequence to fall prey to this tormented soul.

The protagonists are engaging and easy to relate to. Each character’s personality transcends unto our own circumstances and experiences, accentuating the viewership’s imagination. Almost on a seemingly subconscious level, we’re lured further on a psychological level into the plot. It’s subtleties such as this that makes brilliant film making. Outstanding performances all around are a testament to a franchise before its time.

'State Of Emergency' review

State of Emergency ReviewReviewed by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

Is it just me or has the recent success of The Walking Dead inspired every passionate indie film maker to tell their own little stories about human in a post-zombie world? Maybe I’m wrong – Romero got the ball rolling long ago and maybe the state of zombie cinema just evolved to focus more on the characters and drama within?

Whatever the answer, here comes State Of Emergency – a brisk and engaging zombie thriller that tells it’s neat little story with lots of thrills, chills and yes, even some warmth and heart.

So we follow Jim (Jay Hayden) and for a long while, we don’t even know he’s name, his story or where he came from when we meet him running for his life with his dying partner in his arms.

This is how State Of Emergency begins – you’re thrust into this world, you have next to no idea what’s happening and you have to follow around this stranger as the world slowly drip feeds information to you.

One of the first things I noticed about this feature was that the cinematography here is spectacular, from the fabulous lighting that sets the mood wonderfully, to gorgeous shots of the landscape in ruin - this all works to make this world quite effective.

However, it must be said: zombie fans looking to simply find a film that focuses on gore, carnage and mayhem best find their kicks elsewhere as State Of Emergency features next-to-no gore, features minimal zombies and has a primary focus on character interactions and relationships – one of it’s key themes being friendship – and as much as I think everyone should watch this for it’s effective and tight storytelling, I realise this would not interest – or even bore – some viewers who want blood and lots of it.

'Evil Dead' (2013) Movie Review

Evil Dead 2013 ReviewReviewed by Chris Risdal, MoreHorror.com

I loved this movie. Now that that is out of the way, let me get into the gory details. First off, why don't I recap the story of Evil Dead, I mean why not right? Five friends go to a cabin to help one of their own detox from drugs when they discover the Book Of The Dead and unleash hell upon themselves and possibly the world.

I'd like to start off by saying this film is very well shot with some great camera angles and lighting with the woods of New Zealand standing out beautifully in this production. They are both sinister and full of wonder and beauty at the same time.

The score by Roque Baños is haunting and very effective in building tension and making you quite uncomfortable with blaring sirens and screeching strings. Then you have the great practical effects and even the CGI (what little there is...) looks great and looks absolutely disgusting and squishy, which is helped by some great sound design.

Oh, and I forgot to mention one little thing...this film is so gory that in the last ten minutes it literally rains blood from the sky and that should tell you everything without me having to spoil any big details. The film does have its faults and these tend to range from nitpicky to could've done without completely. Scenes such as the opening prologue I think should've been left on the cutting room floor as it only seems to serve as a 'Evil Dead for Dummies' scenario for those not in the loop and provides little else. They could've also spent a little more time involving some characters if not a little more development of them.

Evil Dead Week: 'Evil Dead 2' (1987) Review

Evil Dead 2 1987 PosterBy Chris Risdal, MoreHorror.com

Many fans of 'The Evil Dead' franchise will tell you that '2' is better than the first film but I would like to think in this way: 'Evil Dead 2' is its own entity and the first 'Evil Dead' is its own as well. Comparing one film in this franchise with another whether it be the first, the second, or even the third and you won't find one that is similar to the other, as they are all unique films and fun ones at that.

Now with that being said, I love 'Evil Dead 2' and think of it as what comic book people would call an 'Earth 2' version of the classic cabin in the woods story and it's a very fun and very silly film that both splits my sides and grosses me out all the while keeping me entertained.

I'd like to mention that people seem to be confused with this film when they are first introduced to it after seeing the original 'Evil Dead' as the sequel tries to be both a remake and a sequel at the same time. This was due to director Sam Raimi not being able to use footage from the original film and he ended up having to remake the parts he wished to use. As I said though, this film is what I consider an 'Earth 2' version of the first film and therefore, it exists in its own world.

Now then, I guess I should tell you what I think of the film eh? Well, I love it as any horror fan should. It's a fun, blood soaked dark comedy starring Bruce Campbell and directed by Sam Raimi, what more could you possibly want? Campbell gives his usual performance as Ash, but its classic and funny as always.

The Walking Dead: 3.16 – “Welcome To The Tombs” review

by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

Warning! This review will contain spoilers!

Everything we’ve seen happen in season 3 has led to this – an epic all-out war between two sides that TWD creators have promised to wrap things up, be satisfying and oh yeah, feature a tonne of death – so does it all deliver?

The answer to that question is a “….well, sort of”, as Welcome To The Tombs soars so very highly, beginning with some wonderfully tense scenes, some great pieces of dialogue about to survive in a post-apocalyptic world and the exciting sequence of the Woodbury soldiers storming the prison, only to find themselves soon retreating from a rather clever ploy pulled off the prison folk.

There’s a haunting scene where The Governor pulls over his crew after retreating and upon learning that they will not go back to war, proceeds to gun down his little tribe – but this shouldn’t come as much of a shock to any viewers as we’ve all seen him gun down innocents in cold blood in the very first episode – which creates a nice little connection between these two episodes.

I do question how not one Woodbury folk managed to fire off their gun in sudden retaliation but hell, it was an unexpected moment for everyone, including myself, so I’ll let that slide.

From there on, the episode comes to a screeching halt, tension disappears in favour for some quieter character moments and apart from a rather ambiguous scene involving Carl gunning down a fleeing Woodbury teen that may or may not have been raising his gun after being told to drop it, the episodes begins to feel a tad underwhelming as it rumbles along.

Nevertheless, I find the rather low-key second half of the episode to be most intriguing, as it goes against expectations on its road to wrapping up season three and still manages to deliver some strong scenes as well.
