Opening Wednesday At A Theater Or Drive-in Near You: The Shadow Cinema Of The American ‘70S

“All the films in this book share an air of disreputability… I have tried to avoid using the word art about the movies in this book, not just because I didn’t want to inflate my claims for them, but because the word is used far too often to shut down discussion rather than open it up. If something has been acclaimed as art, it’s not just beyond criticism but often seen as above the mere mortals for whom its presumably been made. It’s a sealed artifact that offers no way in. It is as much a lie to claim we can be moved only by what has been given the imprimatur of art as it would be to deny that there are, in these scruffy movies, the very things we expect from art: avenues into human emotion and psychology, or into the character and texture of the time the films were made,

Did ya miss me? Regardless, I’m back, baby!

Holidays

• Release Date: In Theaters Now

• Written By: Anthony Scott Burns, Kevin Kolsch, Nicholas McCarthy, Gary Shore, Kevin Smith, Sarah Adina Smith, Scott Stewart, Dennis Widmyer

• Directed By: Anthony Scott Burns, Kevin Kolsch, Nicholas McCarthy, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Gary Shore, Kevin Smith, Sarah Adina Smith, Scott Stewart, Dennis Widmyer

• Starring: Seth Green and like 100 other people

What’s this? A new horror anthology centered around a myriad of holidays and helmed by some cats I really dig (I mean, c’mon; look at that list of die-rectors up there)? You know, normally I’d make some ridiculous pun alluding to the quality or lack thereof of whatever film was at hand, and this time I think I’ll do that, too. Let’s see if this one is going to be more treats than tricks, or just an overstuffed and overcooked turkey!

Kevin Smith continues to evolve with a contribution to the horror anthology “Holidays”

It’s no secret whatsoever that I’m a pretty big Kevin Smith fan, which is something I’ve said more than once on this site. Perhaps to some degree that’s why I’m so delighted by his recent foray into horror/genre work, but I’d also make the argument that Smith is exercising new muscles of late, and that’s indisputably exciting. Today, the anthology horror project Holidays is transitioning from its run at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival this month to a limited theatrical release, with Smith helming one of the segments. It’s one of the better ones in the flick too, so it’s a great excuse for me to pay tribute to a favorite in Smith once again. The movie is, as previously mentioned, an anthology horror tale, with different filmmakers taking different holidays and giving them a scary or just twisted spin. For example,

Exclusive Q&A: Andrew Bowen on Playing a Quirky Killer in the Horror Anthology Holidays

Some of the biggest days on the calendar are viewed through a dark lens in the new horror anthology Holidays. Featuring a plethora of intriguing characters, one of the film’s standouts is Andrew Bowen’s performance as Reggie: an unconventional serial killer looking for his next victim on New Year’s Eve. Following Holidays’ world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival (and VOD debut) and ahead of its April 22nd theatrical release, we caught up with Bowen for our latest Q&A feature.

Andrew, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your excellent work in Holidays. What attracted you to this film and the role of Reggie in the “New Year’s Eve” segment?

Andrew Bowen: Thank you so much! It was such a cool project to work on. I got involved after my friend and producer Gabriella Lugo (who produced [the] “Christmas

[Tribeca Review] Holidays

Horror anthologies are here to stay, with the V/H/S and ABCs of Death series, and Michael Dougherty’s more cohesive Trick ‘r Treat offering fans fun-size bits of terror. Now comes Holidays, a twisted little tribute to all our beloved religious, secular, and federal celebrations.

The vignettes, which are presented in order of the calendar year, open with Valentine’s Day, a story about a high school outcast, her alpha bitch tormentor, and a swim coach with a bad heart. The work from Starry Eyes duo Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer screams retro with its synth-y soundtrack and teen-centric drama, doing its very best to recall early Brian De Palma. (If the connection to Carrie wasn’t evident enough, there’s a girl wearing a red baseball cap à la Pj Soles to remind you.)

More disturbing high jinx abound in the following short, St. Patrick’s Day,

VOD Vault #4 – Krampus / Holidays

  • Nerdly
Another Sunday and another installment of VOD Vault, taking a look at some of this weeks on-demand releases that have hit various VOD platforms here in the UK. This week we have a very seasonal edition, featuring two films that take a horrific look at the holidays…

Krampus

Stars: Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen, Krista Stadler | Directed by Michael Dougherty

Krampus has seemingly become the de jour villain in the horror genre recently. We’ve already had two movies featuring the evil anti-Santa, Krampus: The Christmas Devil and Krampus: The Reckoning; and now comes a third. Although unlike its seasonal brethren, this Krampus at least made it into cinemas – and so it should have. This is the latest film from director Michael Dougherty, who exploded onto the UK horror scene a few years back when his Halloween anthology Trick ‘r’ Treat was screened at Frightfest.

Tribeca 2016 Review: Holidays

For centuries, annual holidays have been widely celebrated as a time to put aside one’s worries and responsibilities in order to come together with loved ones and enjoy each other’s company. Holidays are magical, not only because they represent a time of love and harmony, but also because many of them are commemorated on a global scale, making them not only a positive junction, but a universal one that can be shared by nearly all of humankind.

Although we can all look back on our happy moments as a collective people, we can also all relate to the sense of dread that often goes hand-in-hand with an approaching festivity. Holidays like Valentine’s Day can be ridiculously expensive, Christmastime can mean grueling hosting duties for many, as well as fights with family. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day can bring emotional baggage with it if a person has a lost parent,

Tribeca ’16: Holidays Review

Holidays review: Screening at Tribeca Film Festival as part of the Midnight programme we review new horror anthology Holidays.

Ever since V/H/S snuck its way onto the scene there has been a resurgence of anthology movies within the horror genre. We’ve had another two V/H/S movies as well as two A, B, C’s of Death, a Christmas themed one – A Christmas Horror Story, and Tales of Halloween. Now comes Holidays, a film that builds on the idea of the latter mentioned films, but expands from just Christmas and Halloween to encompass all our favourite holidays. Here’s our Holidays review, straight from Tribeca.

Many other anthology films, right back to the likes of Tales from the Darkside: The Movie and The Twilight Zone Movie, feature an overarching plot that wraps around our series of short films. This decision has been many

Holidays Review [Tribeca 2016]

Growing up, I was a sucker for gimmicks. Blame my Mom. Every time a new M&M flavor (did you know they make Coconut and Cherry?) or Oreo remix hit the shelves, our house was the first on the block to sample it. I like to think it’s this upbringing that now influences my taste in horror films, like my adoration of holiday themes (Krampus! Gremlins!) and anthology collections. Or how about an entire horror anthology themed around major holidays, aptly titled – you guessed it – Holidays! It was going to take an act of Satan to keep me away from this one…

Let me start by confirming that yes, Holidays works. It’s an admitted mixed-bag of highs and lows (more highs), but that’s to be expected with eight *very* different segments. Some will love Kevin Smith’s Halloween whorishness, while others will start with their typical anti-Smith

New Trailers: "Hush," "Holidays," "Asylum"

Following a screening at the SXSW film festival, a new trailer is out for the horror tale "Hush", a kind of modern homage to 1967's "Wait Until Dark" but swapping out blindness for deafness and making it more of a straight horror tale.

Kate Siegel plays a deaf recluse living her life in an isolated house. She begins to receive ominous text messages and realises a man in a terrifying white mask has been watching her. So begins a terrifying ordeal where she must fight for her very survival against an intruder who has a sensory advantage over her.

That's not the only festival film scoring a preview today. Vertical Entertainment and Xyz Films have landed global distribution rights to horror anthology "Holidays" which premieres April 14th at the Tribeca Film Festival. It will hit VOD the day after followed by a theatrical release on April 22nd.
