I still remember my first time on a rollercoaster. It was at a Six Flags near Chicago in 2000 and the ride was called “Shockwave”. The monstrous blue coils near the entrance (forming a total of seven inversions) were scary enough from the car park, but none of the heckling from my cousins or the grainy rollercoaster videos I’d seen could have prepared me for what I was in for. I screamed …Continue Reading...
The British zombie film is a relatively recent addition to the myriad of subsets that make up the history of British horror. Prior to the break out examples 28 Days Later (2002) and Shaun of the Dead (2004), one has to travel far back into the mists of time to the heyday of Hammer horror and their sublime Plague of the Zombies (1966). Unfortunately British cinema is not in the privileged position …Continue Reading...
Since the release of George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, I don’t think there’s been a time that zombie movies have been unpopular, and over the last 10 years the genre has seen a resurgence of sorts with some excellent offerings overshadowing the low-budget trash that’s usually churned out. After watching The Crazies, I felt this film fell somewhere in between: it’s not bad but not great either. I should also …Continue Reading...
Zombie Honeymoon has the distinction of being, as far as I can tell, the only zombie flick based on a true story. No, the shambling undead have not really risen from the sea to leave a gory trail in the sands of the Jersey Shore. However, the overwhelming emotions of young love cut short by unexpected tragic loss is what drove director Dave Gebroe to tell this story. The lead characters are …Continue Reading...
If you’re prepared to set aside any notions you may have about what a zombie movie is supposed to be and pay attention, you might want to check this out.
Pontypool (which is based on Tony Burgess’ book Pontypool Changes Everything) relies heavily on its storyline, a great script and strong performances from its cast instead of the more traditional emphasis on scenes of flesh-eating zombies. It …
“They’re coming to get you, Barbara!”
With that strangely memorable sound bite, screenwriter John A. Russo and director George A. Romero redefined a genre and permanently laid to rest the living, breathing, voodoo-empowered zombies depicted in the 1932 independent film, White Zombie. Night of the Living Dead lurched into theaters on October 1st, 1968. Almost 40 years and five sequels later, the creatures born of Russo and Romero’s collaboration continue to be the …
Night of the Living Dead has, with some justification, become an important landmark in the history of the horror genre. It emerged at a very precipitous point, because the genre itself was suffering one of its periodic lulls. In many respects the 1960’s had been dominated by the pseudo-gothic universe of Hammer and the Poe inspired films of Roger Corman, their influence being felt throughout Europe and in some cases in Latin …Continue Reading...
This Spanish film which emerged a couple of years ago proved that the heartbeat of European horror was still beating – if only half-heartedly. Its release coincided with several films that used the pseudo-documentary form, the heaviest hitter was Cloverfield (2008) and the most eagerly awaited was Diary of the Dead (2007). By the very nature of their form these films address issues relating to the prominence of reality TV, the question …Continue Reading...
I consider both Argento and Fulci to be true maestros of their craft. It’s hard to even really compare the two because they are so completely different in their approach, technique, and style. Where Argento paints a grandiose, beautiful picture; Fulci likes to dig in and get dirty. Argento uses lavish atmosphere and suspense to make your heart pound, while Fulci uses disgusting and gritty imagery to make your skin crawl and …Continue Reading...
A lot of extraneous baggage has attached itself to this low budget Italian horror production. So much so that it has become difficult to view it purely on its own merits. Its production and release in Italy in 1979 was marred by legal controversy due to producers Fabrizio De Angelis and Ugo Tucci marketing the film as a sequel to George A. Romero’s hugely successful Dawn of the Dead (released under the title Zombi in …Continue Reading...

Neil Marshall steps aside, but not completely off the film set, for this much anticipated sequel. The original Descent was directed by Mr. Marshall, and while he’s producing the sequel, the editor of the first installment has given the film a go as director. Even though this is Jon Harris’s directorial debut, expect much of the same in respects to the brutal carnage, claustrophobic dwellings, and fast paced action.

PA made quite an impression on domestic audiences. The film cost $15,000 to shoot in just two weeks. How much did the film gross domestically? A little over 100 million! Well, it turns out that the film is becoming just as huge of a hit overseas. Within its opening week in countries such as the U.K and Germany, it raked in just a little over 35 million at box offices.
So what does …
