The Week In Horror: ‘Hybrid Moments,’ ‘Dawn of the Dead,’ ‘Blood Oak,’ Post Mortem with Mick Garris/Barbara Crampton

I just got Hybrid Moments; A Literary Tribute to the Misfits in the mail this weekend from Weird Books, and damn, fiends, it’s worth a buy! Follow the link HERE.

Good news (maybe) for George A Romero’s Dawn of the Dead fans. Looks like UK film distributors Second Sight have scored the release rights for a Blu-ray of the gory zombie classic. Fans who have owned the various VHS or DVD versions for years may be surprised to learn that the film is actually not streaming or in print in any format at the moment, thanks to some ass named Rubenstein holding the rights hostage for an exorbitant fee. Second Sight hasn’t released any more details. Maybe the biggest question is whether it will be all region or just region 2. Also: what version of the film we will get?

The new short film from BCS Films, Blood Oak, will make its debut this weekend at the Snowtown Film Fest in Watertown, NY. Details and trailer below…

“Thrilled to announce that BLOOD OAK will have its premiere at the Snowtown Film Festival Saturday, January 26th, at the Dulles State Office Building in downtown Watertown, NY. Check out their website: https://www.snowtownfilmfestival.com/ for the rest of the films and showtimes. #STFF2019″ 

After straying too far from a remote hunting camp, two friends quickly realize being lost in the woods is the least of their trouble on this hunting trip.

The Post Mortem with Mick Garris podcast returned on Wednesday from its holiday hiatus with horror icon Barbara Crampton! Garris’s podcast is a treasure. Amazing. He’s interviewed so many legends: Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper, Don Coscarelli, and the list goes on. He directed my favorite Critters movie, Part 2 (The Main Course), as well as Psycho IV, a number of Stephen King adaptations, like SleepwalkersThe Stand, and the remake of The Shining. He also masterminded Showtime’s Masters of Horror TV series. Barbara Crampton has been one of my favorite actresses since I was in middle school watching Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator. She’s starred in From BeyondChopping Mall, and Castle Freak. Then, in the last several years, she has come back with an even stronger body of work in Beyond The GatesYou’re NextWe Are Still Here, and Dead Night. Subscribe to the show on your favorite podcast streaming service. It is gold!
