Get ready to gasp, laugh, shriek and cheer at this latest anthology of 26 short tales, each punctuated by a different shocking, wickedly entertaining death. Completely one-upping its predecessor, ABCS OF DEATH 2 is packed with outstanding thrills, chills and kills, brought to you by some of the acclaimed film-making talents behind fan favourites CUBE (Vincenzo Natali), AMERICAN MARY (The Soska Twins), BIG BAD WOLVES (Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado), MANBORG (Steven Kostanski), ROOM 237 (Rodney Ascher), INSIDE (Alexandre Bustillo) and JUAN OF THE DEAD (Alejandro Brugues), just to name but a few! – Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2014.
I really enjoyed the chaotic bloody confusing mess of the first ABCs (my review/breakdown of the film here), and by the looks of the insanely NSFW red band trailer, I will definitely enjoy the second installment. Check it out below.

A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone – and that no good deed goes unpunished.
Director: Eli Roth
Writers: Guillermo Amoedo, Eli Roth
Stars: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns
Budget: $6,000,000 (estimated)
I am really pissed, I have been absolutely drooling over this for the past year or so waiting patiently for the homage to the legendary Cannibal Holocaust. Bloody Disgusting had this to say “Deadline is reporting that Green Inferno, the Roth-directed film about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. We’ve been supporting the film heavily here on the site after we posted this positive review last September. They write that this happened because financier Worldview Entertainment is balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A. They have also confirmed from Open Road that the release date is scratched, though the distributor won’t comment further, including whether there will be a later release date or if this goes straight to video.”
Anywhoo check out the trailers below and go watch Cannibal Holocaust.

Hot off the success of his brilliant supernatural haunter, Sinister, Scott Derrickson gives the horror masses, Deliver Us From Evil. Another supernatural horror/thriller that is based off the real-life events surrounding NYPD officer, Ralph Sarchie and his work as a demonologist, documented in his book, Beware The Night. Derrickson showed incredible promise with Sinister and built a supernatural horror that was created to show pure evil and none of this ”trying to help put the spirit at rest” crap, like Andres Muschietti’s Mama. So would Derrickson be able to replicate that success and tap further into our senses, delivering on his potential or would Deliver Us From Evil showcase a one hit wonder?
It is debatable just how much of Deliver Us From Evil is inspired from Sarchie’s accounts and how much of it is…

Director: Fede Alvarez
Writers: Fede Alvarez (screenplay), Diablo Cody (screenplay)

Release Date: 5 April 2013 (Not Ireland!)
Taglines: The most terrifying film you will ever experience.
Reviews and thoughts by Thepuremassacre (myself), my brother PC74 (that’s his real name, weird huh) and my wife aka The Wife (who I dragged to see the film). Two horror freaks and an innocent woman along for the ride; Evil Dead in their own words. Enjoy!
Evil Dead opens to a frantic scene involving a group of apparent backwoods hillbillies chasing a very distraught young woman. She is mercilessly hit in the face and subdued by the deranged attackers, awaking sometime later tied to a post in a dark and rotting cellar. Urgent dialogue is spoken in a foreign language by a maniacal old crone as her hideously mutated – and obviously inbred – offspring look on with dire trepidation. The old hag mentions an evil book and insists that the young woman must be purified; purified by fire. Her father steps forward, pours gasoline on his daughter and sets her ablaze, awakening an evil inside her that laughs and taunts him, calling her own mother a whore. He aims a shotgun at her and blows his burning daughters head off……. thus begins Evil Dead. Read the rest of this entry »

Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival. Just got back from the theater, wiped the blood from my eyes and the gore from my clothing before finally allowing Evil Dead to “soak” in. A truly visceral blood soaked joy ride! In all honesty I was absolutely stoked for the film; waiting in feverish anticipation for the release of the remake of Raimi’s classic flick. Most of the time (for me anyway) the hype and build up a film destroy’s the actual experience of the film itself; with this in mind I nervously took my seat (at the back of the theater, of course) and began my journey back to that dilapidated cabin the woods. With dilated pupils I surveyed the frantic opening sequences of the film and a tense grin spread across my lips when the necronomicon was opened and the malevolent spirit began wreaking it’s bloody havoc on our unwary cast. As the madness set in, the massacre began. I was not to be disappointed; Evil Dead was arguably the best remake I have ever seen; a bloody re-imagining if you will. Bloody, insane carnage is the focus of the film and boy does it ever work! Gruesome practical effects, buckets of blood and brutally gory mayhem all combine to form one hell of a horror film. As a fan of hardcore horror and the original Evil Dead series I couldn’t be happier! Absolutely fantastic film! I will be expanding this into a review at some point this weekend so stay tuned…..In the mean time, GO SEE THIS FUCKING FILM! Read the rest of this entry »

Roger Joseph Ebert (June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013) was an American journalist, film critic and screenwriter. The Chicago Sun-Times said he “was without question the nation’s most prominent and influential film critic,” and Forbes described him as “the most powerful pundit in America”. He was the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize and to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (Wikipedia)
Didn’t always agree with the man but he will be sorely missed. RIP.

Why do we watch horror flicks….for the killing, the blood, the guts, the gore and to a lesser extent the scares. The third segment of Crazy Ass Horror Film Deaths (lol) includes a non horror flick (how dare I) but I think it fits in nicely. Anyway check it out, love it, hate it, whateva. Graphic Clips probably NSFW. Here they are in no particular order. Read the rest of this entry »
