THE TERRIFYING EVOLUTION OF HORROR GAMING
 
Posted: 5 July, 2017 at 16:33 PM GMT
The Terrifying Evolution of Horror Gaming

Whilst mainstream horror movies have struggled to eclipse classics like Halloween, The Shining and The Exorcist, the video gaming realm has had no problem in giving us ever more shocking delights. Although old-school home computer games like Soft and Cuddly for the ZX Spectrum had to make do with clunky pixellated graphics and excruciating audio, as soon as the likes of Doom and Resident Evil came along, it was clear that video games could actually be scary.

CLASSIC HORROR SHOWS THAT SHOULD BE REBOOTED

Classic Horror Shows that should be Rebooted

Horror TV has come a long way over the past few years. The whole television industry has evolved so much in such a short space of time and now there are numerous ways to enjoy your favourite TV shows. A broader range of channels and endless streaming services have been popping up everywhere giving us a wider selection of shows, and more importantly, multiple ways to watch them. Thankfully this has had little affect on the quality of TV which quite frankly almost surpasses that of the movie world these days. Binging on box sets and the sort of chatter that TV shows generates nowadays is phenomenal and many high profile productions are already cinematic in their own right. And horror is one such genre that has been at the forefront of game-changing TV, so we thought we would take a look back at some classic horror shows that are most deserved of a modern TV reboot.

Death By Sport: Surprise Sporting Goods That Kill

Itís hard to imagine Jason Vorhees without his iconic hockey mask. Itís even more difficult to think about just how many kills he has managed to notch up over the years whilst wearing it. There are endless examples in the movie world of sporting equipment being used in violent and even murderous ways. Not just in horror but sporting goods like a baseball bat or a golf club for instance have been used many times often in threatening situations. And some pieces of equipment in particular are the ideal accessories for unforgettable on-screen deaths moments in the horror world.

Horror-on-Sea 2017: Seaside Horror Warms up Winter

This year's festival was held over two weekends in Southend, in the Park Inn by Radisson Palace Hotel. Friday 20 January's standout movie was 'Savageland' (directors: Phil Guidry, Simon Herbert and David Whelan, 2015, US). A prisoner is convicted to die by lethal injection after he is accused of going on a killing spree in his one-horse town. As he's the town loner, the survivors are keen to see him executed. Cinema verite interviews of the local sheriff and other town worthies add uncomfortable realism, as talking heads say there may be no direct motive for the murders but there's also a lot of local hate.

Frozen Fear: Horror With a Little Extra Chill

Itís been another bitterly cold few weeks and one of the pleasures of a chilly cold night is being able to wrap up warm inside, tuck yourself in and put on a good movie. And whilst Jack Frost may be nipping at your nose thereís more dangers lurking in the whiteout of the snow than just the icy weather. There arenít many places where horror hasnít delved at some point and there have been plenty that take full advantage of those wintry months and bleak, bracing backdrops.

Atmosfear: The Attraction of Horror Games

Now let's suppose that you've had a terrible day in the office or at college and the only thing that gets you through the day is the thought of being able to get home and let off some steam. Some people may want to head out to a local bar or club, but that's not always a viable option especially if you want to remain 'in one piece' by the next morning. Some may get in and quite literally be too tired to even go anywhere or communicate with anyone. But you've still got that burning negative energy in you from all the strains and pressures of the day and that's when gamers find their ideal stress relief and are often able to channel it towards fighting their deepest fears and enjoying the latest horror gaming experience.

'DON'T F#CK IN THE WOODS' SAYS NEW INDEPENDENT CREATURE FEATURE

'Don't F#ck in the Woods' Says New Independent Creature Feature

There have been quite a few choice rules when it comes to what you can and can't do in a horror movie. We all fondly remember a fresh faced Jamie Kennedy spouting out specific horror-related rules for when it comes to surviving a horror movie in Wes Craven's genre defining 'Scream' way back in 1996 and since then horror seems intent on showcasing these invariable cliches and conventions and even in some cases creating completely new ones. One thing we have learnt however is what to avoid in horror. Don't run up the stairs to try and escape, don't say you'll be right back and certainly "don't f#ck in the woods"! And writer/director Shawn Burkett certainly hasn't shied away from that last rule with his new project which isn't pulling any punches whatsoever. DON'T F#CK IN THE WOODS is the awesomely memorable title of his new independent horror project and here's some more about the upcoming creature feature. Head below to check out the poster and images from the movie.

ENTERING THE NEXT LEVEL OF FEAR
 
Posted: 23 November, 2016 at 02:01 AM GMT
Entering the Next Level of Fear

Horror games are all about being immersed. You need to feel like you're right there in Silent Hill, the Spencer Mansion or wherever, so that you can truly empathise with the character you play. The more you feel threatened and scared, the better the experience. This can be tough to do when you're separate from the character you play who's on your TV or monitor, but with VR you are placed right in the middle. You will be in those scary locations, hear strange sounds and you will be the victim, the prey and the haunted. This will make the game more real and help to elevate horror to the next level.

GETTING SERIOUSLY SCARED: TRANSYLVANIAN TALKS (AND JAM)

Getting Seriously Scared: Transylvanian Talks (and Jam)

The Bram Stoker Film Fest 2016 got its eighth annual event off to its customary early start at on Thursday 27 October at 1030am with "Tales of Fear". This US feature-length of six horror shorts (director: Corey Logsdon), based on 1950s horror comics set in Smalltown, USA. Although carefully atmospheric, like most 50s horror, it was entertainingly hammy rather than creepy, although there was a good short on a child murderer who has the tables turned on him by his latest victims. Spanish short "Three Wise Monkeys" (dir: Miguel Angel Font), was a take on the "hear no evil, see no evil" saying when the ornamental monkey takes on a life of its own.

Serial Killer Horror Short SIMON Goes Feature Length

SIMON is the latest horror feature project from British writer/director Warren Badenski and it's a real love letter to classic 80's horror. The movie is based on the filmmakers' previous short horror film of the same name which has been expanded into this feature length effort. This expansion also managed to see the movie itself change from just a simple slasher-themed outing, in a similar vein to that of classic's such as 'Friday the 13th', and evolve during development into a much more story orientated horror experience like that of 'Hellraiser' or even 'Silence of The Lambs'. The movie stars Chris Bell and Katie Alexander-Thom who reprise their roles from the original short as well as Lexi Wolfe, Emma McMorrow, Nathaniel Francis and Dean Martin. SIMON is now available worldwide on VOD as well as on DVD across the US and you can head below to check out the trailer.

ZOMBIE MOVIES THAT HELPED THE GENRE EVOLVE
 
Posted: 31 October, 2016 at 19:38 PM GMT
Zombie Movies that Helped the Genre Evolve

Before George A. Romeroís cult status, and with it the cult status of the great zombie film, was defined by the classic, genre changing movie Night of the Living Dead, Hollywood had seen only a smattering of early concept zombie flicks. So far removed, both aesthetically and tonally, from what weíd consider the norm in todayís age of The Walking Dead that weíve lost touch with the origins and evolution of the sub-genre. Itís become so ingrained in the cultural zeitgeist that your average zombie viewer probably couldnít even tell you what Night of the Living Dead was.
