Home Alone Horror: The Best Home Invasion Thrillers

Arriving on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment here in the UK on 23 March is the new suspenseful thriller ‘No Good Deed’. Golden Globe® winner Idris Elba and Academy Award® nominee Taraji P. Henson star in this thriller about an unstable escaped convict who shows up on the doorstep of a women’s house under false pretences and continues to terrorise the women and her two children. So we thought this would be a good opportunity to take a quick look at some of the other more memorable home invasion thrillers from the past few years.

The Best Small-Town Murder Mystery Movies

The dark mysteries of ‘The Calling’ will finally be unveiled when the new small-town crime thriller arrives on DVD here in the UK on 16 February courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The story, directed by Jason Stone, is based on the novel by Inger Ash Wolfe and it is a journey to the shadowy landscape between faith and fear. We follow Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef (played by Susan Sarandon) who stumbles upon a gruesome murder that shatters her peaceful existence and leads her to unearth a series of similar killings across the country. So we thought this would be a good time to take a look at just some of the other best small-town murder mystery movies out there.

Horror Movies-Turned-Video Games That You Need to Play!

Horror fans and gamers are similar breeds. Sitting down enjoying some snacks and a frosty one, getting hooked on fictional worlds and losing themselves to the plot and characters, it comes as no surprise that the two tribes often overlap. Although games based on horror films are never particularly good- or any game based on a film, to be more precise- there have been a few instances in which games have taken the lore and atmosphere of horror movies, transforming a static experience into an interactive one! Here are some of our favourites.

The Modern

Back in 1930 Universal Studios released a horror movie titled Dracula and starring Bela Lugosi. This film began the Universal Monster Franchise which spawned a slew of creepy and gothic horror films all starring a now iconic horror monster. In 1944 Universal decided to combine a bunch of these monsters into one film called House of Frankenstein. The film included Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolfman. This type of film was extremely popular came to be known as a “Monster Rally” film. Future similar films were produced by Universal Studios including House of Dracula (1945) and Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).

  Posted: 28 January, 2015 at 02:38 AM GMT
The Top Signs That You’re Possessed

There are a number of things you should watch out for in the early stages of demonic possession. A crucifix, circle of salt and a Ouija board can only go so far in order to assist your apparent possession. But like any other ‘disease’ it’s the case of knowing what signs to look out for before it takes over completely. To find out more of these so-called symptoms make sure you pick up a copy of ‘Grace: The Possession’, which is now available on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

THE MONSTER MASH: A QUICK GUIDE TO MODERN CREATURE FEATURES

The Monster Mash: A Quick Guide to Modern Creature Features

Long gone are the days of the classic Hollywood monsters. The most iconic figures in horror, such as Dracula, the Wolfman and Frankenstein’s monster, will always be fondly remembered for years to come. In fact in this past year alone we’ve already seen vampiristic origin story ‘Dracula Untold’ and the comic-book based action fantasy ‘I, Frankenstein’ all dealing with these traditional beasts. So there will always be rehashes, re-imaginings and different directions for the classics. But due to the ever-changing climate that we live in it seems that the styles, the demands and of course the monsters themselves have evolved.

EXORCISM MOVIES: THE OBSESSION WITH POSSESSION
 
  Posted: 20 January, 2015 at 17:34 PM GMT
Exorcism Movies: The Obsession with Possession

One of the most popular genres of horror, and one that has been literally terrifying generations of movie goers for years now, is the Exorcism movie. Possession itself is a massive part of horror even as it often occurs in films that we tend to forget about being directly associated with ‘possession’. Classic horrors such as ‘The Shining’, ‘Evil Dead’ and even ‘Paranormal Activity’ all feature possessions from unseen ghostly or demonic forces but can never truly be pigeon-holed into the exorcism genre. There’s a definite religious requirement and a few clichés you definitely need to slip in there to warrant the official label. With the arrival of writer/director Jeff Chan’s new chilling horror ‘Grace: The Possession’, which is now available on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, we decided to take a look at just a mere sample of some of the other impressive horrors that fall into this popular category.

'POLTERGEIST' REBOOT IS GOING TO BE LESS HORROR AND MORE OF A KIDS ADVENTURE!?
 
  Posted: 15 January, 2015 at 17:07 PM GMT
'Poltergeist' Reboot is Going to be Less Horror and More of a Kids Adventure!?

The original 'Poltergeist' was a no-holds-barred scare-fest for children 'and' adults alike, and was deservedly certified a 15 by the BBFC (and this was when the ratings systems were far less lenient than they are these days). However, it's no surprise – given the trend of taking adult themed 80s movies, and giving them a more kid-friendly rating – that the new 'Poltergeist' reboot is going to be a PG-type kids' film. Star Sam Rockwell spoke with Collider and offered a little more insight into the paranormal reboot of the Steven Spielberg classic:
