Jason VandenBerghe is a heavy metal human being. He's clad in black, sports thick long hair, a beard that vikings would be proud of, and a ring for every single finger. He's also very intense - melodramatic event - and speaks in deep, philosophical tones that wouldn't sound out of place in a medieval stage play.
NIGHTMARE CINEMA is a horror anthology directed by five master's of horrors which include Joe Dante (Gremlins), Ryûhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train), David Slade (30 Days of Night), Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead), and the one and only Mick Garris (Masters of Horror). NIGHTMARE CINEMA just saw its World Premiere at Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival on July 12th and I'm here to tell you that horror fans are going to be in for a real treat with this film.
THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY, the first feature film from director Aislinn Clarke, is a found-footage horror film that combines demonic possession with the true history of Magdalene Laundries and the vicious treatment bestowed upon women at the hands of sadistic nuns. The film stars Lalor Roddy (Don't Leave Home), Ciaran Flynn (Hunger), Helena Bereen (Don't Leave Home), and Lauren Coe (The Halycon).
SKYSCRAPER, the latest film from Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence), proves once and for all that nothing can stop Dwayne Johnson, not even when the tallest building in the world has caught fire with his family trapped inside. The film stars Dwayne Johnson (Rampage), Neve Campbell (Scream), Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black), McKenna Roberts (Timeless), Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders), Roland Møller (Atomic Blonde) and Chin Han (Ghost in the Shell).
A QUIET PLACE, the latest from actor/director John Krasinski, is a powerhouse of a horror film that blends the terror of a creature feature with a unique story that will tug on your heart strings. The film, which is written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, who penned the screenplay with Krasinski, stars Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow), John Krasinski (“The Office”), Noah Jupe (Wonder), and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck).
Many time in my past I have written about my love for found footage and documentary style horror movies. Even though the genre is so used and abused, I will always give the movie a chance and see for myself. Add in the plot of something demonic or paranormal and I'm there quicker than you can finish the title. Most of the time the movies make a sucker out of me but I am there nonetheless. When DARKNESS REIGNS crossed my path, of course I was going to give it a go.
