Film Review: ‘Hell Fest’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Hell Fest’
Eye candy without much to offer the brain or emotions, “Hell Fest” is a competently crafted slasher film rendered instantly forgettable by its disinterest in character, plot, and motivation, let alone original ideas. An early Halloween salvo, it will be gone from theaters before that holiday (or even the latest screen “Halloween”) arrives, but should in the short term satisfy that seasonal itch among horror fans before bigger, better fright-fests arrive.

After the obligatory prior-victim’s-fate prelude, we meet the film’s college student protagonists, who are young and cute but not much else. Natalie (Amy Forsyth) reunites with ex-roomie Bff Brooke (Reign Edwards) — the movie suggests there’s some reason why they haven’t seen each other for a while, but never gets around to explaining it — while less enthusiastically renewing acquaintance with Brooke’s irksome new flatmate Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus).

Nonetheless, all three are soon off to Hell Fest,

Now on Blu-ray: We All Scream For The Resurrected and Hell Night From Scream Factory!

Shout! Factory sublabel Scream Factory has come a long way in the five and a half years since they first appeared on the scene in 2012 with Halloween II. What was once a company focused on big name horror films missing from Blu-ray, has become as much a niche distributor as some of the smaller companies, grabbing oft requested films and doing the work to get them out in the best editions possible. Two recent releases that caught my eye are the recent Us Blu-ray debuts of Dan O'Bannon's Lovecraft adaptation The Resurrected, and Tom DeSimone's '80s ghost story Hell Night. Both films have been requested by horror fans for years and Scream was finally able to make it happen. Are these upgrades worth your...

Watch an Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Clip from Scream Factory’s Hell Night Collector’s Edition Blu-ray / DVD

  • DailyDead
Before he came face to face with Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Peter Barton faced a different kind of cinematic killer alongside Linda Blair in Hell Night. With the 1981 horror film coming out soon on a Collector's Edition Blu-ray / DVD with a new 4K scan from Scream Factory, we've been provided with an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip to share as a special treat for Daily Dead readers.

In the behind-the-scenes clip below, Barton reflects on a humorous time when it was difficult for him to maintain a straight face during filming, and he also talks about the high level of energy that goes into a performance when actors are playing characters who are fighting for (or fear for) their lives.

10 Worst College Hazing Incidents (Gone Horribly Wrong)

When a student enters college, some of them take part in fraternities and sororities which they believe allows them to establish ties for business opportunities once they graduate.

Others join these groups to gain a new family which helps them adjust in college life. However, not all memberships in fraternities and sororities are good ones because some of these hopefuls end up experiencing the worst form of hazing or initiation to get in these groups.

In the United States, victims of hazing incidents were either humiliated in public and some even died in the process.

Although efforts have been launched to stop college hazing in the country, hazing rituals continue to plague several universities and colleges and they have increased in numbers.

Here are 10 worst instances of college hazing incidents in the Us in no particular order (they’re all bad).

Review: "Madman" (1982) Blu-ray Collector's Edition From Vinegar Syndrome

  • CinemaRetro
By Todd Garbarini

When I was a teenager, the Boy Scout troop that I was a member of consisted of nearly 25 scouts. We had a few older scouts whom the rest of the younger scouts looked up to, and during our weekend camping trips the seniors made every effort to scare the beejezus out of us youngsters with ludicrous tales of ghosts or killers hiding out in the woods. These stories were often woven around a campfire in the late hours of the evening when we were all seemingly vulnerable. During the summer of 1980, Sean Cunningham’s Friday the 13th was doing well at the box office, so I was already aware of these “murderers in the woods”-themed films. This didn’t make it any easier for us to go on camping trips! The success of Friday the 13th gave birth to countless carbon copies of young adults-being-stalked-in-the-woods films.

15 1980s Horror Movies You May Have Never Heard Of

Every year during the Halloween season, I make a point of searching out at least one horror movie that I've never seen before. This year I started going through some horror movies from the 1980s, and as you might expect, a lot of them look like ridiculous yet entertaining flicks. Since Halloween is coming up, I thought it would be fun to make a list of some of these movies that I came across that I have never heard of before and ones that maybe you haven't seen before either. I included a short synopsis, poster, and trailer for each one. Make sure you watch the trailer because some of them are sure to make you laugh. I love these kinds of films!
