The Wailing offers images that appear in many a horror films: disembowelled livestock; creepy candlelit shrines plastered with odd photographs; curtains of blindingly heavy rain; a foul-mouthed, possessed child; blackened, rabid zombies lunging at stunned victims and blood-splattered murder scenes.
It’s unlikely however, that any horror aficionado has seen all these tropes thrown with such bravado into the same melting pot, producing such a rich and unsettling brew.
"You awoke something recently that you weren't supposed to. You disturbed it."
The 40+ year old iconic independent film company Troma Entertainment will be attending Monster-Mania Con 36 between March 10-12 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Jersey.
"Lloyd Kaufman and Toxie return to New Jersey at Monster-Mania Con 36!"

Comet, the free network dedicated to science fiction and horror programming, is bringing more cult classics to the unsuspecting public this month.
"They're eating her... and then they're going to eat me... OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!"
Coming into this movie I'll be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect. I absolutely love monster movies, I always have. Kong: Skull Island is a total throwback to the fun, action adventure movies we got throughout the 80's and early 90's. There's so much to like here and it's hard not to enjoy, so even though it's had respectable reviews, it certainly hasn't taken the world by storm. Don't get me wrong it's not going to win any awards, but it's clear that wasn't it's aim. It's main purpose is to give the audience a nostalgic, happy time and to entertain.
"All hail the King."
This [month] marks the 40th anniversary of David Lynch’s enigmatic cult film “Eraserhead”; a bizarrely strange and surreal body-horror film that is sure to get under your skin. In 1977, the film became a popular ‘Midnight Movie’ and has continued to bother viewers’ minds since then.
Every single scene is shot in stark black-and-white with constant industrial background ambience, which is sure to make the viewer feel on edge. Love it, or hate it, this movie will for sure leave an impression on you.
"Where your nightmares end..."
Comet, the free network dedicated to science fiction and horror programming, is back with the best of the best, or in many cases, the best of the worst!
"For they shall inherit the earth...sooner than you think!"
In Swiss Army Man, first-time directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (the Daniels) genuinely present you with things you’re unlikely to have seen before – and that, in the current cinematic climate, is a feat in itself.
One can certainly see why Swiss Army Man was a movie that was inevitably going to polarise opinions. In a time when moviegoers are subjected to a constant barrage of remakes, reboots or sequels, I for one am not going to turn my nose up at any movie which places almost all of its bets on being singular and unique.
"We all need some body to lean on."
Where the hell am I supposed to find silver bullets? What!? You can acquire them for us? Then you're the perfect candidate for The Monster Squad. Join the goddamn club with Fright-Rags' collection of merchandise dedicated to Fred Dekker's 1987 cult classic.
"You know who to call when you have ghosts but who do you call when you have monsters?"

The 1980s... A decade with no shortage of toys aimed to gross out your parents. Then along came Madballs, the classic toy rubber balls featuring disgusting gross-out characters. Now, 30 years later, gross out your friends and family once again with Fright-Rags' new Madballs merch!

UGLI Studios out of State College, Pennsylvania has broken into the world of science fiction with the debut issue of Lords of the Cosmos.
Created by Jason Lenox, Jason Palmatier and Dennis Fallon, this first issue in what will be an ongoing series is a remarkable homage to the comics and cartoons of the 1980s. It vividly depicts that age of conflict between noble heroes and loathsome villains, aided and abetted by their truly repulsive henchmen.
"CY-CORN. The last unicorn. Now more machine than beast. The great betrayer of his fellow magical creatures..."
There have been hundreds of vampire films made worldwide and dozens of vampire comedies produced as well. However, none of them comes close to combining horror and humor effectively as What We Do in the Shadows.
What We Do in the Shadows has been highly praised by the mainstream press, and rightly so. Although not a cinematic masterpiece, this New Zealand gem has everything a fan could ask for- blood, guts, vampires, werewolves, zombies, and more laughs than any so-called comedy of the last decade.
"Some interviews with some Vampires."

R.L. Stine rules, ok? Goosebumps were more than just a bestselling series of novellas; they served as a gateway into horror for a new generation of bookworms. Now all grown up, '90s kids like myself can get nostalgic for Fright-Rags' Goosebumps Collection.
"Reader, beware, you're in for a scare!"
Under the moniker of Beyond Horror Design, James Stewart has created these incredible, retro-stylised trading cards, based on exploitation cult classics such as The Beyond (1981).
"Woe be unto him who opens one of the seven gateways to Hell, because through that gateway, evil will invade the world."
It is hard to believe that it been 35 years since E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was released. Today, the magic of Steven Spielberg's 1982 classic still resonates with me, despite having first watched it over two and a half decades ago. So, what better way is there to commemorate one of the most beloved motion pictures of all-time, than with Fright-Rags' E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial collection?
"He is afraid. He is totally alone. He is 3 million light years from home."

“You ain’t got to pull that Blacula shit with me.” The line is an attempt to link what seems to be a half-hearted star-vehicle with something else: blaxploitation. By simultaneously comparing Murphy’s ’90s effort with its ’70s predecessor, whilst slyly digging at the older genre’s foibles, the gag it is a somewhat noble, if pithy, effort to give Vampire in Brooklyn more heft.
"Interesting. I've been stabbed, and I've been hanged, and I've been burned. Even broken on the rack once, but I've never been shot before. Kind of itches a little!"
Swedish musician Thomas Nyholm, under the moniker of Islandrocks, creates these insanely good cover versions of exploitation, cult classic theme songs, such as City of the Living Dead (1980), The Beyond (1981), Suspiria (1977), Class of Nuke 'Em High (1986) and The New York Ripper (1982).
“We are going to dance the Fulci way! Zombie ...the funk are among us!”
Waxwork Records have worked directly with composers Les Reed and Rick Wakeman to acquire the original source material (after a lengthy search for the original masters) and re-master for vinyl. This stunning deluxe, double LP soundtrack release marks the very first time that the music from Creepshow 2 has been released in any format.
"Good to the last gasp!"
Autumn is finally upon us! For the Halloween season, we bid you welcome with three new apparel collections from Fright-Rags: The 'Vintage Halloween', Bela Lugosi and General Mills monster cereals merchandise.
"This is the real thing! Unbelievable, shocking, true thriller!"

Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the deluxe soundtrack re-press of George A. Romero and Stephen King’s seminal 1982 horror-anthology classic, Creepshow; along with six large vibrant and detailed 1.75″ Creepshow enamel pins; designed by Ghoulish Gary Pullin.

Based on the Manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note is a huge franchise in Japan. The Netflix remake rather misses the entire message of the original Death Note – which is that power corrupts. It barely touches on the themes that gave the original depth and intrigue and lacks its tension-building storytelling, which left the viewer wondering where the latest development might lead, and who would win. It’s the version for people who can’t cope with subtitles.
