Everyone seems to be loving the shit out of The Conjuring, the latest fright flick from director James Wan. Truth be told, I haven’t seen it yet. But I will, when it’s released on disc on October 22nd, and you can too – for free, even. We have a copy of The Conjuring on Blu-ray for one lucky reader to win. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with THE CONJURING in the header with your name and the name of your favorite James Wan film. Easy enough. The contest will run until October 22nd and is open to US residents only. But before you enter, check out the following 5 things to know before watching The Conjuring.
Yes folks, it’s that time of year again. The season of the witch is upon us and if you’re a horror fan there’s a good chance at some point this month you’ll be sitting down with a bowl of candy corn and a six-pack of something delish (or at the very least cheap) and watching the granddaddy of modern slashers, John Carpenter’s Halloween. For many it’s THE go-to flick for the season, and rightfully so. It’s personally my favorite film (horror or otherwise) of all time, and I look forward to my annual viewing of it and a few of its sequels. Which brings me to the point of this. I want to know what your favorite entry in the franchise is, besides the original. Maybe you’re a first-night purist and love Halloween II. Perhaps you like to shake it up a bit and dig Season Of The Witch. Or maybe the Thorn curse bent middle entries tickle your fancy. Hell, maybe you’re a complete fucking moron and really like H20 or Resurrection. I’m not here to judge (much), I just want to know. So take a second and vote in the poll below and let us know which Haddonfield (or Santa Mira) horror is top of your list. I even threw in the Rob Zombie remakes for fun (or something).
People can say what they want about the third installment of the Texas Chainsaw franchise, but when it comes to pure, unadulterated ridiculousness of epic proportions, it’s clear that the trailer for Leatherface stands tall. I remember the first time I saw this back in 1990. When the saw came flying out of the lake my thirteen year old jaw dropped. A classic, albeit cheesy, trailer to a much under-rated flick.
