A group of childhood friends are reunited after a spate of gruesome murders in their former hometown suggest the return of “It”, a shape-shifting demonic entity that has terrorised the community for decades, possibly even centuries.
Stephen King has written a lot of books. Like lots of them.
Among his vast bibliography, one work has stood out as one of his most iconic and popular works; the mammoth 1986 novel simply titled It, a terrifying coming of age tale that resulted in everyone hating clowns. It’s also a book that has recently re-entered the public conscious thanks in no small part to the critically acclaimed big screen adaptation that has
Many fans were certainly overjoyed and relieved when the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) handed out an R rating for It, for "Violence/horror, bloody images, and for language." While it had been said early on that the producers and filmmakers were always crafting
Dan, let’s start at the start. When did you first get into horror?
Dan Doherty: I’ve been into horror since I was a kid—I’m not sure of the exact age. For me, it was a way to test my bravery. I was bullied a bit growing up, and it was a way to test it from a safe distance. And then after a while, it just becomes an adrenaline rush; you immerse yourself in a good horror film, but there isn’t much that scares me these days other than public washrooms [laughs]. I can remember watching C.H.U.D. when I was fairly young, maybe ten, but I’m not sure if that was the first. All I know is that once I was introduced to horror, I was hooked.
That seems to be the case with pretty much everyone—once you’re in,
And since we here at Daily Dead decided to celebrate the Halloween season by paying tribute to many of our favorite King
Thanks for taking the time to converse with Daily Dead today. I really enjoyed A Christmas Horror Story and believe it will become a holiday cult classic that horror fans can happily unwrap each year. How did you get involved with this project and what appealed to you the most after reading the script for the first time?
Steve Hoban: Thank you for saying that. As true fans of the genre, we made
We thought it would be nice to tell you fright fanatics about some of the highlights of the week. The two Franco releases are pretty huge in themselves, so they’re getting their own reviews (both are two discs and full of some insanity), but we wanted to bring three other fun titles to your horror-loving attention. Read on!
Continuing the partnership between IFC Midnight and Scream Factory, Grave Encounters-directors The Vicious Brothers return with the Bluray and DVD release of what is easily one of the most entertaining and refreshing alien abduction films in recent time, Extraterrestrial.

Horror fans usually know where a film is going when they see a group of walk into a cabin in the woods, it means that blood is going to flow as freely as the alcohol they brought with them. This is the perfect example of what to expect with Extraterrestrial, you can tell what is coming because it never deviates from what is expected. In truth though this may be exactly what the Vicious Brothers were aiming for anyway.
When April (Britanny Allen) is asked by her father to take pictures of their holiday cabin in the woods that they are selling her boyfriend Kyle (Freddie Stroma) decides to invite a few friends so they can party all weekend. When

Extraterrestial is the latest science fiction horror movie to be released straight to home entertainment. Sadly it doesn’t add anything original to the genre, instead rehashing the same old story.
A group of college students go to a cabin in the woods (yes that original) for a weekend of partying. Whilst there they encounter a crashed UFO and it’s occupants are not friendly. Unbeknownst to the teens they have stumbled onto the aliens frequented stomping ground and they may be the next victims.
It is mentioned several times early on that leading lady April and her family haven’t been to the family cabin since she was a young girl. Personally the more interesting plot line for me would be that her and her family were previous victims of the space travelling tyrants,
Press Release - “From The Vicious Brothers, the creators of Grave Encounters, comes a pulse-pounding encounter of the deadly kind. On May 12th, 2015, the sinister alien abduction thriller Extraterrestrial makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut from Scream Factory, in partnership with IFC Midnight. Filled with dread and suspense, Extraterrestrial is a hair-raising homage in the tradition of classic alien abduction movies, with impressive visual effects that bring a visceral energy to the film.

After the usual prologue providing a first, never-seen-again victim, this one a panicked young woman (Emily Perkins) fleeing an unseen force outside a rural gas station, we’re introduced to protags that never develop much beyond their stereotype-fulfilling first impressions. There’s the designated lead/Final Girl,
The Vicious Brothers, writer/directors of the two popular Grave Encounters found-footage flicks, turn their hands to a more traditional narrative movie, mixing traditional filming methods with their penchant for Pov shaky-cam, with Extraterrestrial.
Still reeling from her parents divorce, April (Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend (Freddie Stroma), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive.
It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.
In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.
Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular

Looking back, we can remember plenty of high school horrors, and combination skin is just one of them. There were a lot of possibilities for this list, and we've got 9 of our favorites listed below. But we would have to flunk ourselves if we didn't turn in an honor roll of honorable mentions.
Of course another Lucky McKee film, The Woods, has to be listed, as does Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And those vivacious vixens from The Craft turned up the heat in their high school, and nobody - and we mean nobody - survives Cherry Falls.
