Darren Lynn Bousman on 'Saw IV'

June 21, 2007 -- Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you have to admit one thing about the SAW franchise: it has managed to avoid the pit that sucks so many horror sequels down into box office oblivion.

More Commentary on 'Hostel Part II' and Why R-Rated Horror Is About to Hibernate Again

June 21, 2007 -- Here are more of my thoughts on why "Hostel Part II," a very good fear film, bombed so badly at the box office. Simply put, the "novelty" of R-rated horror was worn off again. It's worn off before, and it's wearing off again. But more importantly, our society is changing. We're going from right-wing to left-wing. That's happened before too.   [MORE]


Never-Ending 'Halloween' Photos -- and Why This Film Is So Important for the Genre

June 19, 2007 -- Even more images from Rob Zombie's 'Halloween' have surfaced. Meanwhile, it's becoming clear that the box office performance of "Halloween" is going to be critical for the genre we all love. In fact, if this film bombs, we can probably expect to see the genre sink into the moribund direct-to-video-only mess that it was in throughout the first half of the 1990s.   [MORE]


Out Today on DVD

June 19, 2007 -- An interesting day for DVD releases, highlighted mostly by the sublime "The Abandoned," one of the best horror films of the year to be exact. An absolute must grab.   [MORE]

Tarantino's 'Death Proof' Gets Solo DVD release

June 12, 2007 -- Quentin Tarantino's half of "Grindhouse" is now heading to DVD by itself on Sept. 18. No word on when "Planet Terror" will be hitting disc.

It seems breaking off the Tarantino segment and releasing it solo to disc is one idea.   [MORE]
