Jessica Cameron's 'MANIA' gets a little Risky

MANIA - Jessica Cameron, Tristan Risk and Ellie Churchby Seth Metoyer,

Scream Queen Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare, Silent Night, Camel Spiders) is bringing her vast knowledge of horror to the big screen again (and to the director's chair).

We've recently been told that Cameron's upcoming "Fucked up Lesbian Love Story" feature film MANIA has just cast one of my favorite actresses Tristan Risk (American Mary) in the film. Additionally, the beautiful Ellie Church (Time to Kill) has been added to the cast, and producer Mem Ferda has joined the production. Check out all the official details below.

From The Press Release
Jessica Cameron and Jonathan Scott Higgins have re-teamed with their Truth or Dare producer Mem Ferda on their next 3 films. Ferda will serve as the sole producer on all three movies. They have cast actress Tristan Risk of the Soska Sister’s American Mary in the feature film MANIA. Actress Ellie Church of the grindhouse film, Time to Kill has also joined the production. Risk will play the role of Brooke and Church will play the role of Mel.

MANIA is one of three features in Jessica Cameron’s triple feature cross-country extravaganza. In it, Risk will play the crazed lesbian lover of Church’s character Mel. It will mark her 2nd feature as a director from a script Higgins wrote. Desolation will be the 2nd feature film and directed by Ryan M. Andrews from a script he wrote. Risk has also signed on to star as the villain in Andrews’ movie. A feature length documentary titled Kill the Production Assitant, will chronicle the making of this very ambitious project.

On Truth or Dare, Cameron and Higgins were met with difficulties trying to secure a director who could handle the gory script until Cameron finally decided to pull up her sleeves and do it herself. They, along with Ferda, met a new challenge with casting the female leads in MANIA.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride (2014) review

Haunted Hayride 2014by Jonathan Weichsel,

The sixth annual Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is a huge event with a county fair vibe that offers visitors a full night's worth of Halloween fun. There are two haunted houses, a haunted maze, a number of theatrical performances, and of course, the haunted hayride itself.

The two haunted houses are The Deadly Sins Sideshow, and The House of the Horsemen. The Deadly Sins Sideshow, set in a carnival sideshow, puts visitors face to face with grotesque reenactments of the seven deadly sins. Each of the sins is personified by a sideshow freak, who acts out one of the sins. For example, Sloth sits on a couch watching TV, literally covered in his own filth, while Gluttony eats disgusting rotting meat while lying in his own excrement.

The House of the Horsemen is based on the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and is set in a mental hospital. Visitors are ushered through scenes of deranged madmen and madwomen acting out apocalyptic scenes in a madhouse setting.

The haunted maze, called the In-Between Haunted Maze, is a lot of fun. It is the most interactive experience at the Haunted Hayride, and pits visitors against all sorts of monsters and ghouls as they try to figure out how to navigate the twisting and turning labyrinth.

Of course, the main attraction is the Haunted Hayride, an elaborate production that brings visitors through the nine circles of Hell. The Haunted Hayride features cool sets, amazing acrobatics, and the novelty of riding through a transformed Griffith Park while sitting on hay.

There are other events as well, such as live music, fortune tellers, live theater, and a photo opportunity where you can photograph your friends in execution devices such as the guillotine and electric chair.

Psycho (1960) review

Psycho Movie CoverReviewed by Grace Fontaine,

Psycho (1960)
Starring: Janet Leigh (Marion Crane), Anthony Perkins (Norman Bates), Vera Miles (Lila Crane), Martin Balsam (Detective Arbogast) and John Gavin (Sam Loomis)
Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock

Well gee. What can be said about Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ that has not already been stated in the past by people better at writing than me? It’s one of the best horror thrillers ever made, oozing suspense, style and subliminal subtext. Well, there is nothing really I can say to argue against or support that because the way I see it, ‘Psycho’ was the birth of contemporary serial killer films with indomitable style to boot. However, what I can offer is how I personally see the film and how it affected me because to the best of my knowledge there is only one Grace Fontaine and she’s enough for the world to handle.

There are several aspects at work here; voyeurism, duplicity, psychosis, sexuality and the power of secrets are all part and parcel of what is undoubtedly Hitchcock’s seminal masterpiece and all of these things resonate loud and clear. However, allow me to give my take on two major themes in the film- birds and sexual politics.

One of the biggest visual motifs in the film is undoubtedly the fixation on birds. Let’s have a look at the evidence we are presented with;
- Janet Leigh’s lead role as Marion CRANE.
- Birds are highly inquisitive by nature which explains a vast majority of how characters behave in the film. Marion asks questions about Norman when they talk, Arbogast is a detective which requires him to inquire those involved in Marion’s disappearance and Norman while playing the gracious host is curious about Marion herself and why she has chosen to ‘fly’ away to the Bates Motel. Oh and the fact he was creeping on her while she was in the shower.
- Norman’s sizeable hobby of taxidermy as we see in his parlour has particular favour towards birds. In fact, the entire room comes off as an enormous statement in regards to the character differences between Marion and Norman Bates when they converse. A couple of inferences could be drawn from the physical depiction of the room with the types of birds and, part of the conversation between Marion and Norman. The owl and the hawk are predators; the crow and the raven are predators as well as scavengers. All of these things make up what Norman is and what he stands for. He’s a predator, but he is also incredibly opportunistic. The smaller, more docile avian species that reside in the parlour such as songbirds are the prey (or victims) of owls, hawks and often crows. At the beginning of their conversation Norman tells Marion that she "eats like a bird", which heavily imply her being a dainty, pretty and vulnerable songbird, not a predator. Janet Leigh seems to illustrate this by fastidiously picking a piece of bread throughout the brunt of the conversation.

Horns (2013) review

Horns Movie PosterBy Jonathan Weichsel

I had an experience while watching Horns, which given the way things are going in entertainment, is becoming an increasingly common part of the movie going experience. Sometime during the first act of the film, my ears pricked up at some of the strange dialogue about The Lord working in mysterious ways and some of the other odd banter about religion spouting out of the character's mouths, and I thought to myself, "Oh fuck. Am I watching a faith based feature?" I quickly pushed the thought out of my mind. "I can't be watching a faith based feature," I thought. "This film has cursing. It has gore. It has nudity and sex." But then, at the end of the second act, it became clear and undeniable that I was, in fact, watching a faith based feature.

You see, at the end of the first act of the film, Daniel Radcliff's character, "Ig" Perrish, smashes a Virgin Mary statue that is part of the memorial for his murdered girlfriend, declaring that she went to church every week and believed in God, and didn't deserve to have this happen to her. He decides that there is no God, and that Christianity is all a lie. The next morning he has horns sprouting out of his head. At the end of the second act of the film, Perrish puts on a cross that was worn by his murdered girlfriend, and has a sudden moment of clarity. His horns disappear, he regains his faith, and now has the power to make things right in the world. So the entire second act of the film, although it is constructed as a murder mystery, is actually about a guy who has lost his faith, and must regain it in order to correct an evil in the world.

There are other hallmarks of faith based filmmaking present in Horns. For example, the lives of the main characters revolve around church, and they are defined for the most part by their relationship to Christianity. There are devout Christians, hypocritical Christians, non-believers, and so on, the soundtrack features Christian rock interspersed with alternative music, the license plates on many of the cars are chapters and versus of scripture, and (spoiler alert) at the end of the movie Perrish is reunited with his murdered girlfriend in heaven.

Rabid (1977) review

RABIDReviewed by Emir Husain

“[C]an we truly call this a monster club, if we do not boast amongst our membership a single member of the human race?”
---Vincent Price as vampire “Eramus” in The Monster Club (1981)

Ivory Snow cover “girl” (depicting hygienic motherhood). Groundbreaking porn star. “Body horror” actress. While each job might sound exclusive of the others, Marilyn Chambers (1952-2009), of Behind the Green Door fame/infamy, wore these hats and then some. The artistic American jill-of-all-trades crossed over from smut into the latter role through Canadian director David Cronenberg’s Rabid (1977), bringing her diverse professional experience to an arguably rich and deep character portrayal. For the record, this person, for one, has never watched any hardcore pornos, Green Door or no, but we could still say she was made for the part, given that the film’s premise oddly mirrors Chambers’ sharp career departure from an image of wholesome innocence.

The ensuing description of Rabid, one of the earliest feature films both written and directed by Cronenberg, should provide some idea of what body horror is (a genre type widely identified with the long-running auteur). Chambers’ character, Quebec-based Canuck “Rose,” is traumatically injured in a highway collision while riding on her boyfriend’s motorcycle. Faster than you can say crash makeover, she receives urgent yet untried, experimental plastic surgery with “morphologically neutralized” transfer tissue, despite remaining unwittingly comatose in the wake of the accident. Nevertheless, the operation is successful and she eventually comes to, but with a completely unexpected need to feed on warm blood.

And talk about new twists on vampire lore, its implied eroticism and all, Rose 2.0 seductively and sensuously gets her bloodsucking on through a stinging phallus-like organ housed in an orifice under one of her armpits! But good times, that’s not the whole story. We have an early variant of the zombie apocalypse, no less: Survivors among Rose’s victims become violent, rampaging maniacs, causing social pandemonium and, through their virulent bites, an epidemic rise in their numbers.

Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985) review

Friday the 13th Part V: A New BeginningReviewed by Kevin Scott

Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985)
Written by: Martin Kitrosser, David Cohen, Danny Steinmann
Directed by: Danny Steinmann
Cast: Shavar Ross (Reggie), Melanie Kinnaman (Pam), John Shepherd (Tommy Jarvis), Richard Young (Matt), Debisue Voorhees (Tina), John Robert Dixon (Eddie), Juliette Cummins (Robin), Jerry Pavlon (Jake), Dominick Brascia (Joey), Tiffany Helm (Violet), Mark Venturini (Vic), Miguel A. Nunez Jr. (Demon)

This film was the very first one that I wrote any kind review for on an online platform. That was the first brave step in my cause for championing this film. Albeit, it was a small step, because maybe two people probably stumbled across it. Either way, I did it and I’m not ashamed. Matter of fact, I’m taking it to the big show by including it here. All of my feelings for this bastard child of the series just happened to resurface after reading about it in “Camp Crystal Lake Memories”.

For anyone that doesn’t know about that book, it’s a must for the any fan that chronicles the complete history of the series from the original to “Freddy vs. Jason”. Frankly, Part V just can’t catch a break, not even in any tribute to the Friday series that I have seen. I just happened to pick up a double feature disc of part 5 and part 6 the other day, and the behind the scenes actually had an objective point of view about this film. It was worth having duplicate copies of part 6 (I always buy movies on a single disc days before they include them with another film that I’m gonna buy too). No complaints though, first world problems.

Silent Hill (1999) Video Game Review

Silent Hill Video Game ReviewBy Jesse Miller

Sure, it’s not much to look at now in 2014 and the voice acting is mostly atrocious and unintentionally hilarious (I dare you to not laugh during a cut scene involving some heavy exposition between characters) but Silent Hill was something else back in its day, crafting a unique psychological horror and gaming experience that was quite unlike the horror games that came before it.

It certainly wasn’t the first survival horror video game to come out on the market. Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil were making waves with their terrifying approach to the genre for a few years before. And is there anybody out there that can remember Clock Tower on the Super Nintendo? Sheesh man – I still get shivers thinking about that one. Yet it’s the approach to the horror, not only in terms of storytelling but also sound design, creature design and imagination, that sets Silent Hill apart from these other titles. That and it holds a special place in my heart as being the first encounter with survival horror I had, as I first played this entry as a sixteen year old huddled in the dark, gripping the controller as I wandered the dilapidated hallways of an abandoned school listening out for the guttural moans of the local creatures.

You step into the shoes of father Harry Mason who was on his way to Silent Hill with his daughter Cheryl for a vacation. When we first meet Harry, he’s gaining consciousness after their car was in an accident – only his daughter Cheryl is missing and a sinister fog is over the town around him.

Desperate to find his daughter, Harry sets off into the fog and into the twisted town of Silent Hill where nightmarish creatures, an ancient evil and a disturbing secret await him.

Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys (2014) review

Blood Lake PosterReviewed by Kevin Scott

Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys (2014)
Written by: Anna Rasmussen and Delondra Williams
Directed by: James Cullen Bressack
Cast: James Brooks (Michael), Shannen Doherty (Cate), Zack Ward (Will), Christopher Lloyd (Mayor Akerman), Ciara Hanna (Nicole), Yar Koosha (Kyle), Fred Stoller (Rich), Rachel True (Marcy), Jeremy Wade (Lamprey Expert)

I’m a huge “Piranha” fan, and I’ll watch anything (anything that is!) pertaining to lake horror. Hockey masked killers, prehistoric monsters, government altered mutated fish, toxic waste mutated marine life and even zombies, are all enhanced when set at a lake. It’s in a more confined space than the ocean, there’s usually plenty of expendable characters getting their vacation on to up the body count, and it makes one think twice that fresh water is absolutely, positively safe.

“Blood Lake” is an Asylum film that deals with something that is creepy enough as it is without giving it a B movie bloodthirstiness. Lampreys are pretty much vampiric eel or snake like things, with a sucker for a mouth that’s lined with rows of teeth. It’s pretty good fodder for a horror film and it could work pretty well. The poster art is a bit deceiving because it looks like humans are mutated into lamprey like monsters, but no, this is a straight up “nature gone crazy and the lone hero has to stop it” kind of flick. It has a lot of tropes in it, but sometimes that’s not bad thing. It also has a cast of semi notables that were much more notable for something more well known give or take a couple of decades ago.

The Bay (2012) Review

The BayReviewed by Jesse Miller

When it comes to horror films, there are two particular subjects that really get under my skin and make me cringe in my seat. One of them is demonic possession and the other is horror films featuring foul and gruesome flesh eating of any kind and this just happens to be the main plot point in The Bay, which sees the population of a small Beachy town that comes into contact with a nasty parasite.

The story spins off into multiple threads as we follow characters ranging from a lovely little newswoman to the folks at the CDC as the outbreak unfolds over the next couple of hours in horrific, stomach churning fashion.

The film is directed by Barry Levinson and it is quite exceptionally shot, taking the form of an explicit documentary that you might find late at night on Animal Planet but at the same time managing to orchestrate thrills and chills without falling into lacklustre territory. Everything is pulled out for show here, from lagging Facetime cameras to police car cameras to webcams and each element plays its part beautifully, which is to say, horrifically.

The cast all play their part effectively and with enough heart so that each member and character here feels naturalistic and never feeling forced or bland which is unfortunately what some characters in found footage films end up like, ruining the realistic approach. This isn’t the case with the actors of The Bay, as they manage to breathe life into their characters and you even come to like and care about a few of them.

Cult horror throwback 'HONEYSPIDER' to have premiere

Honeyspiderby Seth Metoyer

The cult throwback horror feature movie HONEYSPIDER will make its premiere on October 18th, 2014 a the Gem Theatre in Kannapolis, North Carolina. Check out the full details and trailer below.

From The Press Release:
HONEYSPIDER, a cult throwback horror feature film from indie filmmakers Josh Hasty and Kenny Caperton, will premiere on October 18th at the historic Gem Theatre in Kannapolis, North Carolina, where a portion of the film was shot. The theatre is hosting a horror night double feature also including George A Romero's zombie classic 'Night of the Living Dead' from 1968. The film is also screening at a Drive-In in Henderson, NC with the original 'House on Haunted Hill' starring Vincent Price, as well as showing at the historic Murphy Theatre in Wilmington, OH with 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show.'

HONEYSPIDER takes place in 1989 on Halloween day and follows college student Jackie Blue as she slowly unravels, all while a mysterious stranger watches over her every move. Soon she finds herself helplessly trapped like prey in a spider’s web, and all she can do is try to survive the night!

HONEYSPIDER is written and produced by Kenny Caperton (owner of the infamous Myers House NC) and directed by Josh Hasty ('A Mannequin in Static') of Paramount Scope. The film stars Frank Aard ('April Fool's Day' remake), Joan Schuermeyer ('Zombieland' and RZ's 'Halloween 2'), Rachel Jeffreys, Samantha Mills ('Bombshell Bloodbath') and newcomer Mariah Brown.

Billy Corgan of the iconic rock band The Smashing Pumpkins has generously given the filmmakers the rights to use one of his early SP tracks entitled “Honeyspider,” which inspired the name of the movie. The film will also feature music from legendary music producer and singer songwriter Gary S. Paxton, who arranged and produced the original Bobby (Boris) Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers “Monster Mash” album.

Review: Halloween Complete Collection Blu-ray Box Set (Deluxe Edition)

Scream Factory Halloween Deluxe Box SetBy Jennica Lynn Johnson

“Look, the boogeyman can only come out on Halloween night, right?”

Sorry, Laurie, but this year Halloween came early. On September 23rd, horror fans near and far—myself included—rejoiced when Shout Factory / Scream Factory released a 10-disc (or 15-disc if you threw down the extra cash for the Deluxe Edition) Blu-ray box set containing every film in the Halloween franchise along with a wide array of bonus features. It’s time to lock your doors and hold on tight as I guide you through the night he came home… with me.

Before digging into the discs themselves, it is impossible not to acknowledge the beauty of the box that houses the discs. On one side, there is the classic jack-o-lantern which has become iconic to the Halloween franchise.

What is really worth noting is the Michael Myers artwork on the two opposite sides of the box. They resemble paintings one might expect to find in a museum exhibit which, to me, is perfect because it reminds me of a Bob’s (John Michael Graham) death scene in the first film. When Michael stands back and tilts his head from side to side, I had always imagined he was admiring a work of art.

Disc 1 – John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978)

While the first disc contains audio commentary by John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis and “The Night She Came Home” featurette which were included in the 35th anniversary Blu-ray released just last year, it also has an excellent new audio commentary with Dean Cundey, Tommy Lee Wallace, and The Shape himself, Nick Castle.

Disc 2 – John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978)

Exclusive to the Deluxe Edition box set, the second disc is literally the same exact transfer as the 2007 Blu-ray release of Halloween right down to the special features. There isn’t anything new to see here, folks.

There are, however, a few minor differences between Disc 1 and Disc 2, one of those differences being the picture. After viewing both discs, it is obvious that the 2007 release on Disc 2 has a blue tint to the color of the picture that can be especially noticeable during scenes taking place at night. But the transfer on the first disc was personally supervised and approved by Dean Cundey. So, there’s that.

The Deluxe Edition gives die-hard horror fans the advantage of having both Halloween transfers in one package so they can conveniently choose which transfer is superior, and then proceed to bicker amongst each other.

'Heretic Haunted House' review

Heretic Haunted House in LABy Jonathan Weichsel

I was attracted to Heretic Haunted House by creator Adrian Marcato's surreal, insane stream of consciousness ramblings promoting the event, which promises to be an interactive horror experience that fucks with your body and mind. But more than that, and I think that anybody who would voluntarily put themselves through a simulation where they play the victim in a torture porn flick would tell you the same thing, I wanted to have an experience. I wanted to raise my heart rate a little. I wanted to feel like I was in danger. I wanted to feel excited.

Heretic Haunted House really makes you feel like you are in actual danger. Even now, writing this review, I am not entirely sure that I wasn't in danger during the simulation. Maybe it's because a hypnotist hypnotizes you at the very beginning, but there were times when it crossed my mind that the cast was really going to kill me. There is an overarching plot, but given that events such as this rely on an element of surprise, for me to outline it here would detract from the experience of anybody who reads this review and decides to go.

I will say that the initial sense of dread is created slowly at first when you are outside the house, but the moment you step inside things go from zero to 120 mph pretty damned fast. You will be attacked. You will be really hypnotized by a real hypnotist. Once hypnotized, you will be chained, and will have knives and other weapons brandished inches from your face. They will force your mouth open and threaten to cut your tongue out. You will be knocked around and dragged across the floor, and half naked women will writhe all over your blood soaked body. And all that is just a small taste of what's in store for you.

40th Anniversary edition of 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'; Sally and Leatherface - Feminism vs. Patriarchy (an essay) and audio review

TCM 40th Anniversaryby Grace Fontaine

Sally and Leatherface- Feminism vs. Patriarchy (A very short personal essay)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been sequelized, prequelized and remade, but has never, ever been equalled. It is a highly important and influential film that manages to tick the box of being a good film and one that is culturally significant. However, I feel that this film would not have been the same were it not for Marilyn Burns’ Final Girl character Sally Hardesty.

These days, we tend to associate the moniker with the Smart, Resourceful, Shy and Conservatively Dressed Girl who escapes death seemingly because she is a virgin who is concerned by the notion of sex. Back in the 1970’s, society was seeing the revolutionary insurrection of feminism- up until that point women had always been portrayed as shrieking damsels in distress who needed the services of a brave, daring man to save them from death or worse. However, with the onset of the feminist movement, there came a brand new (?) notion that;

a) Women were more than capable of taking care of themselves, thank you very much


b) They too enjoyed the act of sex as more than a means of extending a brood.

Sadly this notion is still maintained by some Stone Age, pterosaur-wing munching knuckle-draggers, but fear not, for soon they shall sink into oblivion. In my opinion, although there is a strong sense of symbology in the general notion of the Final Girl, I am not a huge fan of the way this trope has been liberally thrown around as if it were candy. Just like with any gift, blessing or talent we are given, there comes a time of which we take it for granted, giving no thought to what it truly means and it may ultimately take it’s loss until we realise how valuable it is. In a sense it has become a trope, something essential.

There have been several few occasions of which this concept has been challenged, but it was Wes Craven’s post-modern satire face slap known as “Scream” that turned that element on its head and made us all take notice of this trope.

The thing is about Sally though is that we know next to nothing about her personal life, but from what we can see she dresses how she wants, acts how she wants and has an easy-going relationship with her boyfriend. Given this was the early 70’s and casual sex was starting to become an acceptable thing, the whole virgin notion was not even a factor.

Ain't It Cool News' Mark L. Miller says "This throwback to old school low budget slasher films has a lot of moments that made me smile ... there are some great moments of gleefully gory and carnage laden scenes ... it does slumber party horror with a wink, a nod, and a slash to fans who like low-fi horror."

A 12th grade European History educator, Ty Anderson, whose minor online communication with a teasing student finds him immediately terminated from school grounds and snaps him into a psychotic killing spree, terrorizing his former female students at their slumber party.
