In the new horror movie Late Phases, actor and excellent cook Nick Damici (Cold in July) plays a blind war veteran who discovers that something is badly wrong in the seemingly idyllic retirement community of Crescent Bay—and it isn’t excessive bingo fees.

With Halloween fast approaching, EW is picking the five best films in a variety of different horror movie categories. Each day, we’ll post our top picks from specific group—say, zombie movies or demon films—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we’re taking on the slasher flick.
Most slasher flicks boil down to the following ingredients: teenagers (usually described as “nubile”) a slow-moving, indestructible serial killer determined to kill said teenagers, death indirectly caused by promiscuity, and the chaste Final Girl, who outlives everyone else to confront the killer in the end.
In the new horror film Starry Eyes, an aspiring actress named Sarah (Alex Essoe) discovers there are much worse things that can happen in Hollywood than not getting called back for that dandruff shampoo commercial. Written and directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the tale of “paranoia and possession” garnered rave reviews on the festival circuit and is produced by Snowfort Pictures, the boutique production company that has been on something of a tear of late with Jodorowsky’s Dune, Big Ass Spider!, and Cheap Thrills.

With Halloween fast approaching, EW is picking the five best films in a variety of different horror movie categories. Each day, we’ll post our top picks from one specific group—say, vampire movies or slasher flicks—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we’re ready to talk zombies.
Most zombie movies start the same way: A mysterious virus spreads, causing the dead to come back to life as flesh-eating monsters. From there, the same questions often arise: Will the zombies be able to run? Can they be killed with blunt-force trauma to the head? Where will small group of survivors hide until the cavalry arrives? Add in a handful of disturbing images of zombies eating intestines, and you’ve got a classic undead story. READ FULL STORY
Those who appreciate the various macabre and/or fantastical works of author, artist, and auteur Clive Barker are having a happy Halloween, thanks to horror imprint Scream Factory releasing the “Director’s Cut” of his 1990 film, Nightbreed. And it looks like they’re going to have a terrifyingly terrific Christmas as well.
Scream Factory announced today that on Dec. 16, it will release a collector’s edition Blu-ray of Barker’s third—and so far final—film as director, 1995’s Lord of Illusions. The 2-disc set will include both the theatrical version of the film and a director’s cut, a commentary from Barker, deleted scenes, previously unseen on-set footage, a photo gallery, and a new interview with storyboard artist Martin Mercer. Barker-heads who order the title from ShoutFactory.com will receive an exclusive 18″x24″ poster featuring the Blu-ray’s newly commissioned artwork, while supplies last.
How good is the low budget New Zealand horror film Housebound?
Well, Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson has hailed it as “Bloody brilliant!”—and the man knows what he’s talking about, having started his career with such minimally financed but fabulous splatterfests as 1987’s Bad Taste.
There are a couple of notable things to mention about the new film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night: One, I’m pretty sure it’s cinema’s first-ever Farsi language, female vampire-featuring, romance-Western and two, I’m absolutely sure it is one of the most hotly anticipated horror movies of the year.
The film received a warm reception on its recent festival run and has received the imprimatur of noted horror fan Elijah Wood, who is one of the film’s executive producers and described the movie as “stunning” when EW spoke with the actor about it last year.
Where would Halloween season be without Edgar Allan Poe? Still positioned in October, of course, but with a much less creepy hold on the month.
In the new horror-comedy Summer of Blood, Onur Tukel plays a schlubby, self-obsessed Brooklynite called Erik who, after rejecting his girlfriend’s marriage proposal, becomes a veritable sex magnet when he is bitten by a vampire. The result is partly a Woody Allen-esque comedy about commitment—and partly an out-and-out bloodbath.
“If you’re making a horror film, you have to make it about fear,” says Tukel, who also wrote and directed the movie. “I’m 42 years old right now and my biggest fear is commitment and marriage. So I thought I would make a film about those things.”
