Earlier this summer, Dimension Films and Trancas International announced Halloween Returns, the next installment in the series of films that began with John Carpenter’s classic, Halloween. The press release referred to this movie as a “re-calibration” of the series, and there’s word that the film will be a direct sequel to 1981’s Halloween II. I couldn’t help but chuckle at the notion of “re-calibration” being a big deal to Dimension and Trancas. The truth is, this is not the first time the franchise has done this. And I’m not referring to just the Rob Zombie remake and it’s sequel. The series has undergone some kind of rebooting going all the way back to Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
With the release of THE EDITOR, AStron-6 is quickly rising to the top of the “DROP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WATCH THEIR SHIT!!” list. Today we are discussing The Editor (out now on Blu-ray via Scream Factory) and Astron-6’s commitment to bring male frontal nudity into the forefront of respectable modern cinema.
Released in 1981, The Beyond has amassed a pretty big cult following throughout the years. Well, believe it or not, there may be horror fans out there who may not have even heard of it. We all have those movies where someone will turn to us going, “Wait you’ve never seen that?” For me, The Beyond was one of those. I have only been aware of the film for about a dozen years, and for most of that time the film would just be just that: a legend. So, I know how it feels to be late to the party.
