Celebrate with this creepy trailer for horror anthology Holidays

Holiday-themed horror has been a hallmark of the genre for as long as I can remember. Christmas has perhaps the longest tradition of darkness, ranging from BLACK CHRISTMAS to CHRISTMAS EVIL to SANTA'S SLAY to KRAMPUS . However, some of the other major dates on the calendar don't get their fair share of the limelight, something the upcoming horror anthology  HOLIDAYS...

It's the Booze Talkin': Hollywood Should Take Lessons From Indie Horror!

There is nothing like spending an evening with a group of like-minded horror fans in a darkened theatre. The problem is all too often, the main feature is loaded with generic leads, bogus jump scares and empty headed frights.

Exclusive clip from Starry Eyes is incredibly gruesome and NSFW!

Be warned: this exclusive clip from STARRY EYES is pretty nasty stuff, so you might want to check on who's looking at your monitor before you watch it. Now that we got that out of the way, said clip is head-smashingly good. The film itself is a bit of a mixed bag - some great moments teamed with a brilliant performance from Alex Essoe, but it's uneven in the extreme. Worth a look...
