Film Review: Dracula Untold (2014)

Universal begins its attempt to wrangle its stable of “monsters” into a shared property, a share franchise, much like The Avengers, with the release of Dracula Untold. The grue-crew have been dreading this film for sometime, even jokingly labeling the film Dracula Unseen. Aside from Dave, who may have been literally offended by the film, the reviews are surprising positive but with reservations. Horror? No, not at all. Action film? Yeah, Doc and Thomas even suggest it is closer to a superhero film. Twists and turns, baby.

Willow Creek (2013)
Bobcat Goldthwait. Bigfoot. Found Footage. It’s a recipe for the bizarre from a unique visionary tackling his first horror film with Willow Creek. The film follows the trails blazed by Blair Witch Project to capture your breath in a brilliant extended scene where the lead characters are trapped in their tent as the sounds of terror surround them. Terrifying film.

The Quiet Ones (2014)
What the heck happened? A great idea and a great cast squandered for a mediocre horror film – although The Quiet Ones is a tight, entertaining little thriller. The scares are forced and few and far between but the acting is terrific with Jared Harris and Olivia Cooke getting most of the recognition. But what happened to the scares? Listen to the grue-crew investigate during the podcast to find out.

Horror News of the Week for 04/28/2014
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with his favorite horror icon making it to serial television, Jason Voorhees with a Friday the 13th show. The trailer for As Above, So Below may have been the scariest thing about The Quiet Ones – d’oh.  Kevin Smith returns to horror with his Tusk cast in tow to create Anti-Claus, as holiday horror anthology. Maybe. Santos nearly throws up with the disclaimer that Universal’s Dracula Untold described as a “family fantasy film.” Oh, dear. Showtime is presenting the first episode of their horror show Penny Dreadful a full month ahead of its premiere date.

What Have You Been Watching: Camp Dread
Danielle Harris and Eric Roberts lead the cast for Harrison Smith’s slasher film, Camp Dread. Doc steps in with this week’s What Have You Been Watching segment to review the film trying to convince Santos he needs to give it a try if not for Roberts deliriously campy delivery then for the twist ending.
