"Eve" Creator Bows to "Hack/Slash"

In yesterday's news we reported on a story regarding a new film called "Eve", and how its plot bore a striking resemblance to another film in production right now called "Hack & Slash". Both stories involve a sexy female with a dead parent who has made it her life mission to track down "slasher killers".

TV Spot for "Laid To Rest"

"Laid To Rest" is a promising looking slasher flick starring "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" Lena Heady, that gets released on DVD April 21st. This slick little TV spot showed up online today so I figured it was a good time to remind everyone about the title. Expect an official BGH review to pop up some time next week.

"Dead Wood" Trailer

This may be a tad too low budget for my tastes, but I have to give it up for effective trailer editing when I see it. What we have here is the trailer for "Dead Wood", what appears to be a British horror film involving some campers in the woods, possible slashing, and I swear some Asian ghost stalking in there as well. Here's the synopsis:

Midnight Movie (REVIEW)

At first glance, director Jack Messitt's snappy 2008 feature-length debut "Midnight Movie" may seem like yet another tired retread populated with a handful of pretty actors who are probably too young to genuinely appreciate the movies that inspired this surprisingly sharp, blood-drenched excursion into the well-worn slasher subgenre. And, for the most part, your knee-jerk reaction to the film is fairly accurate. However, because Messitt and everyone involved appear to be having such a blast with the material, chances are you'll forgive the picture its trespasses, of which there are a few.

Netflix Streaming: "Hatchet"

As part of our on-going bid to simultaneously pimp our Netflix affiliation and help you out with finding horror gems to watch, I'm here with today's streaming horror recommendation, "Hatchet". This underground slasher sensation directed by Adam Green took the internets by storm last year. So here's your chance to check it out in case you missed it, or see it for the first time if you're a slacker.

Lights Camera Dead (REVIEW)

We've got a few independent filmmakers that visit the site from time to time, so I'm sure they can relate to this scenario. You figure you can write, act, and direct. You're working on a shoestring budget. All you need is a few crappy actors, a guy or two to work the cameras and a monkey to work the fog machine. The problem is, everybody else on your crew, they're not quite as into the whole idea as you. They screw off, joke around at inappropriate times and in general slack off. So when the crew quits due to your unconventional temper, you're stuck with half a movie. What to do?

Cold Prey (Fritt vilt) (REVIEW)

Roar Uthaug is familiar with the work of Alexandre Aja. I don’t know this for a fact but after watching “Cold Prey”, I’d lay my next paycheck on it. To be pointed, Uthaug’s 2006 Norwegian slasher is so stylistically similar to Aja’s “The Hills Have Eyes” remake that were it not for the little matter of snow vs. sand you might well think you were watching Aja’s mutant retread reset in Jotunheimen. "The Ice has Eyes", if you will.
