What Makes us Scream? – Horror Movie Panel at MCM Birmingham Comic Con

The Cabin in the Woods review

The Cabin in the Woods review
The Cabin in the Woods is quite a hard film to review. From Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon, it’s the kind of horror film that attempts to show up the big boys by having some kind of surprise stuffed down its pants, and talking about it would only ruin what’s in store. So the less you know, the more you’ll end up saying ‘What the f…’ The simplistic set-up has five friends deciding to take a trip to a secluded cabin in the woods. There’s... 

The Cabin in the Woods Trailer and Poster

The Cabin in the Woods Trailer and Poster
A new trailer has been released for Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s The Cabin in the Woods. The simple title, as well as our knowledge from films such as The Evil Dead and Cabin Fever, suggests that we probably know just what kind of film this will be. The trailer features young guys and gals going off to a secluded cabin, and on the way they are even warned by a creepy old man about “getting back.” So far, so Sleepaway Camp. They obviously find... 

Conan the Barbarian review

Conan the Barbarian review
Director Marcus Nispel’s version of Conan the Barbarian is nearly two hours of a big man wielding a big sword, killing people and weird octopus-snake like things, occasionally stopping to eat and have slow motion sex (but not at the same time). It doesn’t get any more simple than that. Not strictly a remake of the 1980’s movies, this is an entirely original story based on Robert E. Howard’s creation. Young Conan (Leo Howard) is born in the... 

Carrie remake in development

Carrie remake in development
Hollywood studios are running out of horror classics to re-work for a new generation, given that the last decade has already seen numerous remakes (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare On Elm Street). It looks as if the next film to potentially suffer at the hands of this studio craze is Carrie. MGM and Screen Gems are behind the remake, but before you shout out ‘sacrilege’, they have made an interesting move...
