Films From the Void: TWILIGHT PEOPLE's Mad Monsters

I think I've seen every screen adaptation of H.G. Wells' 1896 novel, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and while the 1932 version with Charles Laughton and Bela Lugosi, Island of Lost Souls, still stands as the pinnacle, 1972's Twilight People has a lot to recommend it. First and foremost, the Philippines-s

THE CURED - Starburst Magazine

The Cured, the debut film from writer and director David Freyne, is yet another film which shows the seemingly-infinite malleability of the zombie subgenre. The director casts his zombies as rampaging victims of an infection called the Maze virus, à la 28 Days Later, rather than the lumbering undead hordes of George Romero, which is … Continued

SOUTHBOUND AND DOWN - Starburst Magazine

Anthology films are nothing new to horror cinema. The story collection format has been a hallmark of the genre, going all the way back to Paul Leni’s 1924 silent film, Waxworks. Leni’s film helped set the template for what viewers have come to expect from the horror anthology: a framing device helps set up the & Continued

'King Cohen' himself, Larry Cohen, on the new documentary about his career

Listing all of the films made by director Larry Cohen would be pages long, and if you added in the number of TV show episodes, it'd be pages and pages past that. Even if you were to distill it down to the number of Blu-Ray reissues over the last few years, it would be absurdly lengthy. Suffice it to

Friday Double Feature: Home Is Where the Haunt Is

Peter Jackson’s 1996 ghost story, The Frighteners, was the director’s first big Hollywood production. It didn’t do so hot, making just a little bit above its $26 million budget.
