The House on Sorority Row Limited Edition Blu-ray Cover Art and Details Announced

Director Mark Rosen’s 80’s slasher flick The House on Sorority Row is one of my favorites of the subgenre.

Halloween 2017: Hack, Slash, Stream: 13 Slashers to Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
Of all the many sub-genres in horror, the slasher is probably my favorite. There aren’t many good ones, but even the bad ones tend to deliver exactly what we want from the formula. They’re horror movie comfort food, and Shudder is offering an entire buffet this October.

Black Christmas (1973, dir. Bob Clark) In many ways the first modern slasher film, Bob Clark’s holiday horror movie is, to this day, a genre masterpiece. From its chilly Canadian atmosphere to the disturbing obscene phone calls being made to a sorority house, Black Christmas is brilliantly constructed and hugely influential. It’s not just one of my favorite slasher movies, but one of my favorite horror movies of any type, full stop.

Blood Rage (1987, dir. Bruce Rubin) There are slasher movies that are tense and scary and stylish. Blood Rage is not one of them. Shot in 1983 but not released

Review: Fox Trap (2016)

Slasher movies have always flooded the Dtv marketplace as they are quick to make and cheap to produce and ultimately the go to sub-genre for student filmmakers. With this easy access, the vast majority of these films are bound to be either completely unwatchable or so devoid of talent that you end up wondering why you bothered. I’d be lying if I told you Fox Trap breaks new ground or plays outside the box, it doesn’t, but what it does well is emulate the best aspects of past slasher favourites and provides a thriller that will surely please genre fans.

Keeping with tradition, Fox Trap opens with a prologue. It’s prom night and a group of friends prank one of their fellow classmates, naturally the stunt goes horribly wrong. Fast forward eight years later, and the same group of friends have all received invitations to a reunion

'Sorority Row’ (2009) Review

Reviewed by Jesse Miller

MoreHorror.com

Based upon the 1983 horror The House on Sorority Row, this remake loosely takes the original’s idea of a prank gone horribly wrong and delivers a new take on the moral dilemma among its cast of colourful characters.

So after a prank to get back at a cheating boyfriend of one of the sorority girls goes wrong and she’s accidentally murdered, the other sisters and the boyfriend all vow to keep her death a secret and label it to the authorities as a disappearance.

Eight months later, something or someone is not too pleased with the secret, as they are killing off the group of girls one by one in rather nasty and effective ways. But which one of them is the killer? And have they lost their mind with guilt?

Sorority Row has a lot of things going for it. It’s

Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s Scream Queens Matters by Leonel VHS

Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were memorable anthology series ranging from the wonderful reincarnation of the beloved The Twilight Zone to Tales From the Darkside and Amazing Stories to series based on well-known horror franchises: Friday the 13th begat its own series and A Nightmare On Elm Street brought forth the ultra-cheesy and fun Freddy’s Nightmares. I love that there are quite a number of series now on the air to choose from. But unfortunately, the quality varies between them on a great scale. With some of them now having established loyal audiences and rabid cult followings, in their

Scream Queens spoiler-free episode 1 review: Pilot

Our Us chums were at the world premiere of Ryan Murphy's crazy, fun new horror comedy series, Scream Queens at Sdcc 2015...

Before the world premiere of the Scream Queens pilot at San Diego Comic-Con, Jamie Lee Curtis emceed the event like it was last call the night before the Navy leaves the Golden Coast, and there was still plenty of partying to do. By the time Curtis had introduced the cast, including Emma Roberts and Lea Michele, and paid her respects to Scream Queens creator Ryan Murphy, the mood in the room was wild, jubilant, and maybe a little nuts. So in many respects, it reflected the tone of the maniacally entertaining television series they were about to watch.

While I have vowed not to give away any spoilers for the first hour of Fox’s high-concept slasher/comedy/soap opera/mystery thriller, I can definitely say that at

Review: Haunted House On Sorority Row

I am ride or die for indie horror films. When I say “indie,” I’m not referring to films with only one million dollar budgets in comparison to $100,000,000 budgets. I’m talking about the films that won’t show up on Netflix instant watch and the films that you can only find if you buy directly from the director at their convention table. I’ve spoken many times before on the incredible experience that is the Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo. It’s a convention devoid of guests that charge insane amounts of money for signatures because they’ve been on One horror related television show, but rather a place to celebrate the people that starred in the roles of yesteryear that we’ve worshiped over time. Cinema Wasteland is also a breeding ground for some of the most unique films that would otherwise go completely unnoticed. Thanks to the Wastelanders,

Sorority Party Massacre Gets a Clever New Poster

Sorority Party Massacre Gets a Clever New Poster
We all know by now that slasher villains just love to kill young, scantily clad babes, which is why sorority houses makes for the absolute perfect playground for those with a penchant for wearing masks and carrying around sharp objects.  Not surprisingly, many horror movies over the years have indeed used sorority houses as their settings, from Black Christmas to The House on Sorority Row.  The latest addition to the sorority slashers sub-genre is Sorority Party Massacre, which Anchor Bay is putting out on home video early next year.

Directed by Chris W. Freeman and Justin Jones, Sorority Party Massacre centers on the slashings of beautiful sorority babes on an isolated island town, where one girl has gone missing for each of the last 20 years.  When a big-city cop and the small town's local sheriff begin to investigate the string of mysterious disappearances, they soon realize they're dealing with a

A Look Back at More Misleading VHS Box Cover Art

A Look Back at More Misleading VHS Box Cover Art
The fantastic thing about the VHS years is that the poster art was frequently hand drawn and frequently had very little or nothing to do with the actual film. If you picked a film based solely on the box cover, you had a pretty good chance of being disappointed or at least surprised. Distributors seemed to see a snazzy box cover as a good way to get some mileage out of a subpar film. That still goes on today, but it seems to happen less frequently and the artwork just isn’t the same. In spite of the trickery that duped more than a couple of horror fans in the late ‘70s through the early ‘90s, there are some terrific and legitimate films that have terribly misleading – albeit awesome – cover art. For that reason, we present to you ten more examples of awesomely misleading film artwork.

Even More Fun Horror Movies That Received Rotten Reviews

  • FEARnet
We frequently disagree with movie critics on their critiques of horror films. It seems that the majority of mainstream critics are not able to accept horror films for what they are intended to do: scare the audience and entertain. Not every horror film is meant to be taken seriously or to make a profound statement and we think that’s ok.

We are left wondering if mainstream film critics dismiss horror films as a lesser art form and perhaps tend to view them as not worth their time. In light of that, FEARnet has been running a recurring a piece exploring good horror movies that received ‘rotten’ reviews on the aggregate film rating site Rotten Tomatoes. Since the series has proved popular, we are bringing you a third installment.
