While I generally am a fan of the independent horror scene in the States, it is safe to say I enjoy films from around the world a tad bit more.

Cabin Fever Review
Eli Roth’s debut film, Cabin Fever, will always have a solid spot in my ‘favorite horror movie’ list. I actually enjoyed it so much that I got excited when its sequel was originally announced.

Let me just start by saying this bad boy looks amazing; It’s incredible what Shout! can do with such old source material. The Blu-ray of Squirm has a sharp, bright transfer with a lot less [...]
Over the past few years, there has been quite a bit of discussion about the “Cabal Cut” of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. Would it ever be seen? Did it actually alter the finished film all that much? So many questions and so many rabid fans waiting, searching and theorizing on forums all across the internet. I realize now that Clive Barker wasn’t exactly happy with the finished product of Nightbreed, after so many edits were made. I, for one, [...]
