Graphic Novel Review: City of Filth: Dark Valkyrie (2018)

Joona Kopperoinen is a multi-talented artist working his way into the horror community through his violent animated films and comic books. We recently reviewed his short films Lin! Forest of Hatred and Dusten Choke. He has a very cool artistic style that reminds me of lots of independent works, especially in the comic industry.

Five BD Upgrades You Should Already Own

We’re almost through the fifth month of the year, and the majority of my collection purchases have been on Blu-ray upgrades. Since Blu-ray prices are dropping, streaming services are strengthening their grasp on distributors, and VHS collectors have ruined their own (already dismal) market, I have decided to snag some crystal clear BD restorations in order to capitalize while I still can.

Film Review: The Ringo Double Feature from Arrow Video (1966)

Film Review: The Bloodthirsty Trilogy (1971-1974)

The Bloodthirsty Trilogy is a set of films being released by Arrow Video next month. It includes The Vampire Doll, Lake of Dracula, and Evil of Dracula.

While this trilogy of horror films isn’t at all like his early work in the samurai genre, it is an awesome example of...

Statement by director James Quinn: We’re finally able to share the first official stills of our upcoming horror short ‘Tears of Apollo‘. The footage came back and the first cut is finished. “I’ve been wanting to do a 70s throwback flick for a long time. You have to know, I actually really detest a lot of the modern films that try to imitate a 70s or 80s look and feel. Most of them are shot on DSLRs, with...
