Booth's Blog: Make Iggy Pops Dream Come True. Working With Dario Argento
Posted on Saturday 29th November 2014
For most horror fans Dario Argento is cited as one of their favourite directors for creating some of the most unique ‘dreamscape’ films of all time. His career has spanned an epic 5 decades, his style is incomparable, and he is one of the few directors attributed to the Italian Giallo. There won’t be anyone like him after he’s gone but at the age of 74 he’s about to make another movie. But he needs our help! The Sandman is the first project for Argento whereby the script has been written for him as an ode to all of his films. Argento is obviously on board as the director and the st...

Booth's Blog: Horror Up North!
Posted on Wednesday 5th November 2014
For my friends north of London, or anyone who can get their fangs up there I highly recommend the 28th Leeds International Film Festival running from 5th to the 20th November. The festival has its own “Horror” strand; Fanomenon for which I was a guest some years back and had a real scream! From old school graphic novelist Alan Moore live on stage to a more 21st century approach to interviews via Skype you can expect Indie poster boy Kevin Smith to be on live link up discussing his quirky body horror Tusk. This is about a writer who calls upon an old man for some interesting stories unawa...

Booth's Blog: Ghouls on Film!
Posted on Thursday 30th October 2014
The horror industry is witnessing an exciting albeit overdue shift, not just in the kinds of films and characters on screen, but the kinds of people behind the scenes too. I’m talking about the refreshing insurgence of female film makers. I’m not saying we’ve never seen good female directors before; Kathryrn Bigelow, Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola etc but it was this year’s FrightFest that saw the highest number of female directed horror with 25% of the short films (including my own!) being directed by women. And the films themselves? Well let’s just say they’re making front page news...

We’re hotting up to Halloween and over the next two weeks many of us will be digging around online for an edgy Halloween costume to wear. Gone are the days of turning up as a sexy witch unless you’ve just scooted down to the local supermarket for a last minute costume (I always loved that scene in Mean Girls where Lohan discovers to her horror the Valley girls use Halloween to look like whores, not freaks!)

Booth's Blog: Horror Channel Gets Trapped And Tortured!
Posted on Wednesday 30th April 2014
Torture porn is a phrase or sub-genre of Horror that was coined after the release of Eli Roth’s Hostel, and it has since been used to reference films that revel in set pieces involving human torture, like Horror’s version of a money shot, but instead of – well you know, you get a squishy visceral close up of an eye plucked out while the victim screams in pain, and you can kind of get off on it! In my opinion the term Torture porn is no longer really used in a flattering light! Only a defamatory one since this more gruesome end of the horror spectrum has come under fire in various moral...
