[GIVEAWAY]: Win a collector's version of FROGMAN on VHS

We're giving away five (5) copies of Frogman on VHS! Directed by Anthony Cousins and filmed mostly on Hi-8 and using almost exclusively practical effects, Frogman is a found-footage creature feature based on the eerie real-life legend of the Loveland Frogman.

Further proof there's a number of directors that should act more, and David Cronenberg is absolutely one of them.

Wow ok. A pure masterpiece showing the weaknesses and fears of human beings through an outside, non-moralistic view of a premise in which a perfectly sexualized extraterrestrial seduces men in a discovery of the senses and her humanization. The pace is very slow and everything combines to create a hypnotic performance plunging us into a universe as black as the hair color of a fascinating Scarlett Johansson. Also a kind of complete psychoanalysis observed under the microscope in a disturbing…

Underrated and underseen. There's creepy stuff in this film that sticks with me. Probably one I will rewatch many times and still puzzle over.

A thematic forerunner of Hereditary with a stripped-down aesthetic. Sometimes you're in the mood for a horror movie that will skip the reassuring shit and take you on a ride through a dark, forbidding forest and then just drop you, unceremoniously, in the middle of it without any way home. I was more in that mood this time than I'd been the first time around. The ambiguity still bothers me. Jamie Nash has a "story" credit on this, and I…

The sixth installment in the V/H/S franchise was... interesting. While it's hard to compare it to the other installments (the first three could've taken place at any time, while these last three were attached to specific years, which you can tell by the "quality" of the tapes and technology), it still delivers.

I'm glad Shudder took this franchise under its wings as we've received three new films in three years, a gift for us all. As usual, there's great talent…

Ok so I was kinda done with SAW (honestly kinda checked out since 5 but still watched them) so I had no expectations but heard from friends it was solid and I like Josh Stolberg’s writing.
So color me sickly fluorescent green but this one may be my favorite SAW film since SAW 2!
Love how they kinda T2’d the characters, creating an interesting story and character dynamic besides the usual “ok, next trap!” Structure from the past films.

Starring both Najarra Townsend (Contracted) and Brea Grant (Lucky), The Stylist is a great horror film about a hair stylist who obsesses over one her clients (Brea Grant), with deadly results. We don't want to give away too many details, but add this Jill Gevargizian-directed masterpiece to your watchlist!
