Larry Cohen: Party of One. That’s the way I see him, anyway; he’s always made the films he’s wanted, the way he’s wanted – with varying results, sure, but at the end of the day they are nothing less than Larry Cohen Films: unique, challenging, quirky, funny, and almost always a blast to watch. Which brings us to Q: The Winged Serpent (1982), his tribute to the AIP monster movies of days gone by, overshadowed by his patented blend of offbeat characters and intriguing dialogue. The flying lizard? Merely a delightful distraction.

Last year, this writer had the opportunity to attend Warner Bros. Studios’ first iteration of their “Horror Made Here” Halloween-themed celebration that took attendees all over the WB lot for a multi-media experience. For this year, though, they really upped the fun factor by streamlining the event, and embracing all these amazing properties that have done so well for both WB as well as New Line Cinema. There were Freddy Kruegers running amok, Valak was coming out of the walls, and even a few Gremlins showed up in the shadows to boot.
*Updated on 10/20 with new film and TV show listings.* Happy autumn, readers! The best time of the year is finally upon us—the Halloween Season—and we’re back with our annual Halloween horrors viewing guide that should help you navigate the waters of all the fun horror-related movies, as well as television shows and specials, that are coming our way over the next month or so. This year’s guide is bigger and better than ever, as we’ve even gone through all the movie channel schedules to find all the great genre films that they’ll be playing throughout October.
Horror fans don’t need a time-sensitive excuse to indulge in uncanny and unnatural literature, but there’s nothing quite like steeping oneself in a novel of the strange as the October winds blow, bringing half-imagined whispers of phantoms from the pages. Some books evoke this sense more effortlessly—and frighteningly—than others. Here are seven chilly, liminal examples of literature’s power to bring us across the veil.
We’re only a few days away now from the release of Patrick Brice’s Creep 2, the sequel to his sleeper found footage hit that features a lovable sociopath played by Mark Duplass who hires a videographer to capture a day in his life, but he has some sinister plans for the unsuspecting filmmaker (who was played by Creep director Brice) that might have some bearing on how this “film” turns out.
There’s nothing quite like an old-fashioned ghost story. In cinema, however, their traditional format has become familiar to the point of boredom. When a fresh take on supernatural, atmospheric horror comes around, it’s a rare gift, usually coming to us from the festival circuit. A gem crafted in this spirit recently premiered at TIFF and screened at the Sitges Film Festival. While its recourses are slim, the Halifax-based production The Crescent uses them to create one of the most chilling films I’ve seen this year.
