Horror By the Sub-Genres: Single Location Horror

Isolation is at the base of nearly every horror film ever made. Even when it is not explicit within the story or the source of the horror itself, isolation is one of the key elements that creates the suspense and dread necessary for a film to be considered horror.

12 Movies for your Halloween Movie Marathon

Movie marathons are tricky business. Equal parts foresight, improvisation, impulse decision-making, and nostalgia that you really don’t have all that much control over in the long run. You can plan ahead all you want but the energy of a room can turn a slow-burn pee-pants fest into annoying background noise in no time. Add a holiday on top of things, say for example Halloween, and you got more problems than that Jay-Z character.

Horror Headlines: Monday February 21st, 2011

"Dead Island", the soon to be released open world video game that's super hot right now, has already had it's screen rights scooped up and the word around campus is a movie is inevitable. I'm sure by next month a sequel will already be announced and a hot new clothing line will be in stores. Can't wait.

Stephen Kay is the fella who brought you "Boogyman" and the "The Craigslist Killer" TV movie has a new flick coming out called "Isolation" and it's got a new trailer for your peepers. The clip features a hospital, some medical advice I'm fairly sure is inaccurate and a girl who looks like the girl from "Big Bang Theory". This all sounds like the perfect storm of awful.

If you had to name the most perfect cast ever imagined what would it be? WRONG! The correct answer is Kobe Bryant, Danny Trejo, Bruce Willis and Kanye West. Luckily for the world these guys are all in the new Robert Rodriguez short film titled "The Black Mamba". You're welcome, world.

"Errors of the Human Body" is the title of my video montage features photos of me from High School and also a new thriller about a scientist who does some creepy crap with fish or something. A bunch of new stills and poster for the flick has hit the nets and I don't know what to think. Please tell me.

In Real People News: 

Let this be a lessen to you fellas. Never dare your girlfriend to shoot you in the face, because there's a 95% chance she will. This woman in Florida did it and your wife or girlfriend will too. I promise you that. Deep down inside I have no doubt that she absolutely hates the look of your face.

Is it really considered a dine n dash if you leave behind your 12 year old daughter? I mean it was Bonefish Grill so I assume the bill was a little steep, fish aint cheap, people! Maybe she got an appetizer and should have left a second child or something. I don't know. All this crap seems to happen in Florida though.

"Straw Man" Trailer, Isolation Horror

I was reading about this project last week and was realy intrigued, but decided to wait for a trailer before I talked about it on the site. Well, one popped up this weekend so here we go.

It's a UK Indie film, that essentially looks like what "Castaway" might have been like if it were a horror film. Here's the official synopsis:

Directed by Andrew Barker, STRAW MAN follows the story of The Lone Man (Simpson), who attempts to fight his own madness by keeping himself company in an empty world by surrounding himself with handcrafted people made of straw.
