‘Victor Crowley’- Horror News Network Review

In September of 2007, writer/director Adam Green gave horror fans plenty of reasons to “stay out of the swamp” with the release of his cult classic Hatchet. Following it up with Hatchet II and Hatchet III, Green kept slasher Victor Crowley busy and horror fans terrified and amused all at the same timeFor the tenth anniversary celebration of the Hatchet, Green released one of the biggest secrets in the genre, a new chapter in the franchise with Victor Crowley.

Released by Green’s ArieScope in association with Dark Sky Films, Victor Crowley has been touring the country in limited release.  Last night’s stop was in Seymour, CT presented by CT Cult Classics. The crowd was pumped, but would this be just more of the same?  While it did mix the gore with the dark humor fans expect, Victor Crowley definitely earns its way not only in the Hatchet series, but also as a standalone horror film.  Not many sequels or reboots manage to win bragging rights to that claim. read more

Horror Icons ‘Expendables’ Movie coming!

In 2010 ‘The Expendables’ was released, with a cast of the biggest action stars, lead by Sylvester Stallone. Now, the horror genre is getting it’s own version!   Entitled ‘Death House,’ it will star Robert Englund,   Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton and Don Shanks.

The official synopsis for the film: “The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil… a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural. Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII. Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control. The victims are homeless, bused into Death House to play literal victims while killing habits are studied. The results are sick, but only a hint of what goes on here. Hell literally breaks loose inside the facility when an EMP device detonates, killing all power and communication and… releasing every prisoner. Boon, Novak, and Fletcher are caught in a race against advancing prisoner hordes led by occultist Neo-Nazi Sieg. The monsters are freed, and they’re going down. Boon and Novak’s fight through Death House turns into a house of horrors gauntlet; their only hope of escape is descending into Hell and enlisting the help of the Five Evils. Events culminate in a violent face-to-face standoff with absolute evil… only to find that they have traveled down a rabbit hole and through a looking glass. Black is white and white is black and the definitions of good and evil no longer apply. Who are the monsters? Who will escape?”  read more
