Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: CHRISTOPHER SMITH

Aside from the Hammer Horror films at their peak and the work of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, the British have had a hard time making a big impact on American horror audiences. Whether it be the cultural divide, the differing sensibilities in both comedy and scares, or simply the secret truth that Americans don’t like much of anything from anywhere but America, British independent horror has had trouble gaining a foothold in the States.

Horror By the Sub-Genres: Subway Horror

Humanity’s love/hate relationship with the subterranean world has existed since the dawn of time. The caves that ancient man hid in to escape his predators were the same foreboding places that remained in darkness, even during daytime.

It seems appropriate that we would still find ourselves looking over our shoulder in fear as we head underground for the convenience of mass transit.

"Creep" director Christopher Smith taps Sean Bean for his next film, "Black Death". The film is set in an apocalyptic medieval world facing the bubonic plague, which should prove interesting. It could also turn out just like "Doomsday," which wouldn't be that bad either.

Plot details for the two, yes two, new "Ju-On" sequels, due out on June 27th, have surfaced. Judging from the promotional pictures, the ghost girl still needs a hair cut.

Corey Haim, and a host of "Friday the 13th" alums including Ari Lehman, Warrington Gillette and others have signed on for a new indie slasher called "The Girl". Director Travis Bowen claims that the movie is just like "Friday the 13th," except with a Playboy model (Lisa Neeld) as the killer instead of a hulking dude in a mask. Judging by the cast, it kind of seems like a bootleg Horrorhound Weekend reunion to me.
