If it’s in a word, or it’s in a look, you can’t get rid of The Babadook.”

This chillingly prophetic refrain haunts the worldwide sleeper hit The Babadook, the engrossingly eerie tale of a widowed mother and her troubled young son. On April 14, 2015, this critically acclaimed psychological thriller makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut from Scream Factory, in partnership with IFC Midnight.

The Special Edition Blu-ray, housed in a striking limited run pop-up package, comes loaded with bonus features, including theatrical trailers and an in-depth look behind the scenes of the making of The Babadook with cast and crew interviews (Creating the Book with illustrator Alex Juhasz, A Tour of the House Set, The Stunts: Jumping the Stairs, Special Effects: The Stabbing Scene) as well as deleted scenes and director Jennifer Kent’s award-winning short film Monster.

The standard Blu-ray and DVD editions include the theatrical trailers and a look behind the scenes of the making of The Babadook with cast and crew interviews (Creating the Book with illustrator Alex Juhasz, A Tour of the House Set, The Stunts: Jumping the Stairs, Special Effects: The Stabbing Scene). Fans can pre-order their copies by visiting ShoutFactory.com.

Named one of the Top Ten Films of 2014 by the New York Times’ A.O Scott, New York Magazine’s David Edelstein, and Slate’s Dana Stevens, The Babadook is one of the most celebrated genre films in recent history. Winner of three 2015 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Direction, The Babadook has earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

Star Essie Davis’ captivating performance as the tormented Amelia has won Best Actress at Fantastic Fest, Sitges International Film Festival, and the Toronto After Dark Film Festival as well as earning Best Actress nominations from across the globe, including the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, London Critics Circle, Houston Film Critics Society, and the Australian Film Institute. Heralded as deeply heartfelt yet genuinely frightening, The Babadook is a must-own for all fans of genre cinema.

Where there is imagination, there is darkness; and from within that darkness lurks a being of unfathomable terror. Amelia (AFI Award winner Essie Davis – The Matrix Revolutions, Girl with a Pearl Earring) is a single mother plagued by the violent death of her husband. When a disturbing storybook called Mister Babadook turns up at her house, she is forced to battle with her son’s deep-seated fear of a monster. Soon she discovers a sinister presence all around her. A chilling tale of unseen and otherworldly horror in the haunting tradition of The Conjuring and The Orphanage, Jennifer Kent’s visceral journey into the heart of fear itself is as terrifying as it is believable.

Published

Dahmer

Squid Game was event television when it dropped onto Netflix. I don’t know if you remember but the number of folks chatting about the series was insanely high and something you couldn’t escape anywhere. Well, Ryan Murphy’s recent debut of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story somehow eclipsed that show’s number of viewers by a long shot in its first week.

The chilling exploration of serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer pulled in 192.6 million viewers within its first week. During, Squid Game’s first week the series saw 63.1 million viewers tuning in. That is a huge debut for the series that is now Netflix’s number one series.

The synopsis for Netflix’s Dahmer goes like this:

Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.

Have you watched Evan Peter’s chilling transformation into Dahmer yet?

‘Slash/Back’ Trailer is Filled With Kids Fighting Lovecraftian Body Horrors

Published

on

Slash

‘Slash/Back’ is giving us a very The Thing-aligned sort of plot with one major exception… this film is about a group of young girls instead of a bunch of grumpy dudes. Slash/Back also features some very Lovecraftian bits compounded by the use of some intense-looking body horror. All-in-all, there is nothing to not absolutely dig about this trailer.

A small town becomes the target of a monster invasion and it’s up to a group of kiddos to go on the warpath against all of them.

The synopsis for Slash/Back is as follows:

Set in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, a sleepy hamlet nestled in the majestic mountains of Baffin Island in the Arctic Ocean, SLASH/BACK opens as the village wakes up to a typical summer day. No School, no cool boys (well… except one), and 24-hour sunlight.  But for Maika and her ragtag friends, the usual summer is suddenly not in the cards when they discover an alien invasion threatening their hometown. These teenagers have been underestimated their whole lives but, using makeshift weapons and their horror movie knowledge, they show the aliens you don’t f*** with the girls from Pang.

The film stars Tasiana Shirley, Alexis Vincent-Wolfe, Nalajoss Ellsworth and Chelsea Prusky.

Slash/Back is in theaters, On Demand and on digital beginning October 21.

The director of Border goes in a totally different direction this time around by heading into the dark, and dreary streets of the Iranian Holy City of Masshad. The film explores serial killer Saeed Hanaei who prowled the nights streets of Masshad looking for prostitutes to murder.

The synopsis for Holy Spider goes like this:

Female journalist Rahimi (Zar Amir Ebrahimi) travels to the Iranian holy city of Mashhad to investigate a serial killer who believes he is doing the work of God, cleansing the streets of sinners by murdering sex workers. As the body count mounts and Rahimi draws closer to exposing his crimes, the opportunity for justice grows harder to attain as the ‘Spider Killer’ is embraced by many as a hero. Based on the horrific true story of serial killer Saeed Hanaei, acclaimed writer-director Ali Abbasi (Border) unveils a gripping crime thriller and a daring indictment of a society in which rough justice is routinely a fact of life.

We will be sure to keep you up to date on future updates including an official release date which shouldn’t be too far off.
