Dario Argento has taken a lot of flack from fans who are awaiting the filmmakers’ return to the form that made him a defining force in the evolution of the horror film during the latter half of the 20th century. But has the form really ever changed or is Argento just taking his style into new technical and aesthetic realms in an effort to keep himself interested in the craft? His early works are hardly uniform even if similarities exist.

The original "Scream", released in 1996, was in many ways a movie out of place in its own decade. For starters, it was "one of those slasher films", a term in itself that did nothing at the time but promote jeers from anyone within earshot, due mostly to a decade's worth of dead-horse beating sequels attempting to cash in on the wave of successes from the early 80's. It was also a small, suspense driven movie in the decade of the CGI laden mega-blockbuster.

I'm just going to lay it out here: I hate the Scream series. Sure, the first one was good, but in true Hollywood tradition, we need to milk every god damn ounce of potential profit until even a mention of the aforementioned movie produces a onslaught of bile in our throats.

This week we review "Hatchet II" director Adam Green's latest, "Frozen", and debate the finer points of Wolf sentience.

The sequel to Adam Green's ode to 80's slashers turns out... well, you'll just have to listen.

A lot of movies get added to Netflix's Instant Stream every week. Luckily for you, I'm here to dig through what's new and highlight new releases that may be of interest to BGH readers. Halloween is right around the corner and Netflix is really ramping up the horror releases.

Word just hit the web that Stewart Hendler's "Sorority Row" remake will be hitting DVD shelves February 23rd, 2010. The podcast crew was fairly positive on the film, but either way, it's sure to make your winter a little warmer this year.

You want to stick your
what in my wherenow?

Nothing violently screams "Merry Christmas" quite like a good, old-fashioned senseless bloodletting. Nevermind the twinkling lights, the blankets of snow, and the Yuletide spirit -- if a half-naked teenage girl isn't getting graphically impaled upon the antlers of an enormous mounted deer head, then there's a very strong possibility that my holiday cheer will be less than spectacular. Your family traditions may vary slightly from my own, but I think the sentiment remains the same.

Heed our advice... go with the weed instead.
