30 Days of Night (REVIEW)

It feels good to be right, doesn't it? Of course predicting that "30 Days of Night" would be the best release this fall wasn't exactly a stretch of the imagination, but I'll take any opportunity to pat myself on the back. With that said, the vampire film has gotten a major overhaul, and it's definitely for the better.

Lucky Mckee

Lucky Mckee is the creative genius behind 2002's "May," a moving tale of a girl willing to do anything to make a friend. He followed that up with 2006's "The Woods," a film which was marred by creative strife between Lucky and the studio, and a high profile project named "Red" (based on the Jack Ketchum novel) which recently fell through. He's also taken a detour into acting by starring in Angela Bettis' directorial debut "Roman," in which he plays the lead character. He's currently resting his creative muscles and working on his official site which will launch with the New Year, and he stopped by today to answer a few questions we had to toss at him.
Lucky Mckee

As creepy as it may sound...I'd probably be a more pathetic version of Roman or May...

I remember seeing the trailer for "May" on the DVD when it first came out and thinking it didn't do the film justice. Was 'May' just too complicated to fit into a :60 second trailer? Did you run into any trouble along those lines while selling the film?

Wrong Turn 2 (REVIEW)

Wrong Turn 2: Dead End represents the rare direct to DVD sequel that may have generated more buzz than its predecessor. For that we can thank the blogosphere and a brilliant marketing campaign run on the cheap by distributor 20th Century Fox. But while a well-executed plan may have put this movie in front of all the right eyeballs, something else entirely won the early praise of horror fans—gore. Yet for all its hype and good intentions, Wrong Turn 2 feels like a squishy, if not sloppy, direct-to-DVD release.

Just Before Dawn (REVIEW)

Rednecks that live in the woods are scary... it's just a fact. It's something that should definitely be added to those "everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten" posters that teachers are so fond of hanging on their walls, because it was obviously lost on a lot of the people who went camping in the 1980's. I can confidently say that that bit of knowledge was lost on the participants in Jeff Lieberman's 1981 fear flick "Just Before Dawn," which turns out to be a funky mix of equal parts "Deliverance" and "Friday the 13th."

Resident Evil: Extinction (REVIEW)

"Resident Evil: Extinction" begins by following two separate paths. First, a group of survivors led by Claire Redfield (Ali Larter) have formed a convoy and drive up and down the West Coast of the US looking for supplies. On the other hand, Alice (Milla Jovovich) has decided to stay away from the group for fear that she will lead Umbrella Corp to them and therefore endanger their lives.
