"Black Rock" is tonally reminiscent of Neil Marshall’s "The Descent" in some ways, bolstered by three very cool women and a narrative flow that knows when to slow down and when to kick it into high gear.

Admirable more for its attention to detail and a sense of class regarding true-life murders than for any sort of wall-to-wall mayhem, The Town that Dreaded Sundown is a fascinating little obscurity that horror fans would be well advised to check out at least once.

Equal parts lurid shocker with outrageous gore and sly satire with an actual sense of fanboy sweetness beneath all the ugliness, Father's Day is both an homage to and a satire of everything from low-budget exploitation obscurities to the best (worst?) of the Troma flicks you can vaguely remember from your adolescence.

It's hard to imagine the Phantasm fan who prefers the sequel over the original, but if this kooky little horror flick holds a place in your nostalgia vault, this blu-ray is a no-brainer acquisition.

A dour and quiet high school girl has a secret crush on a handsome and athletic boy, but since she can't have him she snaps and starts killing people all around the poor good-lookin' idiot. Sound familiar? Novel? Exciting?

We certainly don't get a whole lot of horror films from Israel, so when one called Rabies (aka Kalevet) hit the festival circuit a few years ago I made sure to give it a bit of a spotlight. Fortunately for all involved the debut film from Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado was a dark and novel little treat, one that had no problem combing its own tone and attitude with some obvious inspirations from American horror films of the 1980s. Now the duo has returned with another devious delicacy.
