Last Week in Horror, August 31st to September 7th

Posted by Peter Hall - September 8th 2008 @ 1:44 pm

Last Two Weeks in Horror I was paying no attention to what was going on, but I’m back home now.  I’m running on a scant few hours of sleep and an internal clock set ahead 7 hours from its current location of Eastern Standard Time, so the below is just a cursory check-up on some of the bigger items that went unmentioned around here for the past fortnight.

If something big or cool cropped up while I was gone and doesn’t wind up in the post below, do let me know as chances are good it is/was off my radar completely.

    Welcome back.

    Have you heard anything new about MARTYRS? You’ve posted the trailer in this section before, but apparently it was showing at the Toronto festival this past week.

    (Besides HIGH TENSION, is there more new French horror out there on DVD?)

    Also, it seems that BEETLEJUICE got an anniversary re-release on DVD. :)

    Thanks, good to be back. MARTYRS has been pretty well received, as far as I’ve seen. Seems to be keeping with the French theme of tightly paced, border pushing thrills.

    Yeah, there are a couple new French horror flicks out. Off the top of my head, INSIDE and THEM are recent releases. The logic of INSIDE won’t be impressing any scientists at CERN, but it’s very watchable in an over-the-moon gory way. Good group jaw dropper. THEM is actually a better film than HIGH TENSION, I think. Very quick, very simple and has my single favorite ending to a horror film in recent memory.

    Very cool, thanks.

    THEM has been at the top of my Watch Instantly queue for a while now, I just haven’t started it up yet.

    Hey Peter, did you see that Hack/Slash did a SuicideGirls photoshoot with their latest comic?
