Upcoming Horror Films in 2017

Hello, hell hounds. If you're like me, you want to be in the know about all of the sinister, frightening, gory, and macabre movies that have already come out that you've missed, and the ones yet to come so that you don't miss those as well.

Well, guess what? I've scoured and dug deep in the abyss of movie making to find these gems. Trust me, minions, there's a little something for every twisted taste this year, including some blockbusters. I'm sure it's not an exhaustive list, but it should help stave off those horror movie hunger pangs.

Island of the Dolls

With the assistance of her photographer friend and several Mexican locals, they travel to the mysterious island, and soon discover the danger of which awaits them. Despite some spooky…

Interview: Harrison Smith: Death House Movie

In a world full of zombie and demon movies, Harrison Smith and Entertainment Factory have dared to do something different.

That's right, my creepy cohorts: not zombies, sparkly vampires, lame emo werewolves, bad interpretations of skin walkers, fake demon possessions, or post-apocalyptic, unbelievable nonsense. Can you say spooky, evil, government experimentation in an old, sinister-looking, turn of the century prison?  Throw in a who's who of horror icons, and you've got the potential for one Hell of a movie, possibly quite literally.

But I don't want to give too much away.

The movie, Death House, doesn't come out 'til 2017, but when it does, make sure you give it a watch. Until then, I think I'll have to drink some nightshade, and lock myself in my tomb so I don't implode from anticipation. It's been far too long since I've been frightened by a horror movie, and I'm pretty sure this is going to be the one to do it for me. The anticipati…

Where Are They Now? Catching Up with Actor Nathan Head

It's been a while since I chatted with Nathan Head, my freaky fiends, and he is still one of my faves to not only interview, but to watch in all his splendeur effrayant. With roles ranging from terrifying clowns, psychopaths, demon possessed, the living dead, to a bit in a Dr. Who episode, Nathan has proven time and again in all his endevours what a great character actor he is.

Nathan also has been one busy boy, and involved in some very exciting projects. Want to know how busy? Well, just continue reading and you shall see my pets!

Lili's Lair: It's been several year since your first interview here. What's been your favourite project in that time, and why?

Nathan Head: Well there’s been a few, I’m exceptionally proud of Theatre Of Fear (aka The Midnight Horror Show), which came out in 2014 in the UK and 2015 in North America. It got a good release and was even in the UK DVD charts for two weeks and released in 3D in cinemas in Germany. But I also enjoyed working on that…

Channel Zero: Candle Cove: Review and Thoughts on the Series Thus Far

Channel Zero: Candle Cove is a six-episode, self-contained, horror anthology TV series, created by Nick Antosca, and based on the short by Kris Straub. It's directed by Craig Macneill, and stars Paul Schneider, Fiona Shaw, Luisa D' Oliveira, Natalie Brown, Shaun Benson, and Luca Villacis.

Channel Zero is based on a popular "creepypasta." For those of you not in the know, creepypastas are horror-related, user-generated internet memes. Creepypasta is a blend of words whose sounds and meanings are combined to form a new word, in this case from "creepy" and from a slang term for "copy and paste."  Now that we have that cleared up, we can get back to the review.

Channel Zero centres on Mike Painter and his return to his hometown after spending almost two decades being haunted by a strange children's television show, the disappearance of his brother, and the brutal deaths of other children in his home town. Now, the show is back, and so is the nightma…

Halloween Special: Friday the 13th: The Series Feature & Interview with John D. Lemay

Once in a blue moon, a television show comes along that makes a memorable mark in one's mind. For me, one such show was Friday the 13th: The Series, which premiered on the 28th of September, 1987. It ran three seasons and ended, unfortunately for all its adoring fans, on the 26th of May, 1990.

It was unique, fun, and creepy, with a cast of very likable protagonists. The show centered around three main characters, Micki, Ryan, and Jack. Cousins Micki and Ryan inherited a weird, old antique shop from their uncle, Lewis Vendredi (that's "Friday," in French), whom they'd never met.

Unbeknownst to them, Lewis was not a nice man, my malevolent misanthropes. Nope, in fact, old Uncle Lewis had made a pact with the devil. In exchange for wealth and the promise of immortality, Lewis would sell cursed antique objects to the unwary buyer, which usually had deadly or tragic consequences.

After taking possession of the store, Micki and Ryan set out to sell off the remaining st…

Halloween Season Must Watch Movies

Halloween is coming, my creepy crawlies, and with it a featured post on one of my favourite cult classic TV shows. There will also be an interview with one of its stars. "Which show and who?" you want to know? Well what fun would it be if I told you? You'll just have to come by for a visit on Halloween day to find out.

In the meantime, I thought I'd wet your wicked whistles by listing a few of my Halloween season go - to movies. In no particular order. You see, my twisted love is equal amongst the fiends that create things that keep you awake at night.

Trick 'r Treat is a 2007 horror anthology film, written and directed by Michael Dougherty. It stars Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker, Rochelle Aytes, Lauren Lee Smith, and Leslie Bibb.

It's best to take the advice of this movie on Halloween my horrible hags: Remember to light those jack-o-lanterns and throw those apples away, and be careful to follow those ole Halloween traditions or Sam just might get you to…
