The horror anthology genre is bigger and better than ever, with movies such as last year's V/H/S and this year's The ABCs of Death proving there is still a marketplace for these collaborative tales. Sanitarium, directed by Bryan Ortiz, Bryan Ramirez, and Kerry Valderrama, will provide a slightly pared-down approach to the anthology motif, presenting three separate stories told within an insane asylum, with each tale focusing on a different patient. The first trailer and five photos have been unveiled, prior to its world premiere on March 1 at the Miami International Film Festival. Take a look at this new age-restricted video, featuring a number of disturbing and sexually suggestive images, along with the new photos from this chilling thriller, starring Malcolm McDowell, Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Englund, David Mazouz, Lacey Chabert, and John Glover.
Sanitarium was released in 2013.Read More
If you were a gore hungry kid in the 80s, nothing was more exciting than getting your hands on a copy of the banned VHS holiday horror classic Silent Night, Deadly Night, which featured a killer Santa Claus on a bloody rampage. Though five-year-olds shrug with indifference at the notion today, back in 1984, the idea of Jolly Saint Nick crawling down the chimney to axe your mom in the face was quite controversial. A certain kind of rush came from popping this in your video player for the first time. It didn't matter if the movie was any good. It only mattered that we weren't supposed to be watching such blasphemous filth.
Here, nearly 30 years removed from that quaint moment in time, the idea of a killer Santa is blasé. Films don't get banned for their content anymore, and the storyline might as well be featured on television as part of ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas line-up. Most of the shock factor has gone out of our entertainment. So why even remake Silent Night, Deadly Night here, in late 2012?Read More

Stanley Kubrick is among the handful who come to mind when discussing the greatest directors of all time. Although his career spanned nearly 50 years, he only directed 13 feature films, all of which are considered classics to this day, with titles such as Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket. This year, his unforgettable adaptation of Anthony Burgess' novel A Clockwork Orange celebrates its 40th anniversary, and Warner Home Video is honoring this occasion by debuting A Clockwork Orange on Blu-ray for the very first time May 31. The studio is also releasing Stanley Kubrick: Limited Edition Collection on Blu-ray and DVD May 31, a nine-movie, 10-disc collection featuring the director's finest work, a 40-page collectible booklet, and numerous other special features.
I recently had the chance to speak with two men whose work lies at the heart of A Clockwork Orange and this momentous Blu-ray release: Malcolm McDowell and Leon Vitali. Malcolm McDowell, of course, starred in A Clockwork Orange in a breakthrough performance as Alex DeLarge, a charming young droog whose tendencies for the ultra-violence lands him in an experimental British program run by the government, where they try to eliminate the violent tendencies in younger men. Leon Vitali first met Stanley Kubrick as an actor in Barry Lyndon, which lead to a long-term friendship with the filmmaker up until his death in 1999. Now he supervises the restorations of all Stanley Kubrick's movies, including this A Clockwork Orange Blu-ray two-disc set.Read More
