Nightmares are always based on a little truth
My friend Jessica Cameron told me all about this new film she’s in, Buckout Road. When I headed over to the site I saw it was “Based on a Rumor” and was instantly intrigued. So many great horror stories start with a myth.
We have all heard of that one dark street in our city that “even the cops” or in my case, “even the cartel” won’t drive down alone at night. New York has Buckout Road, rumored to be the most haunted stretch of paranormal pavement in America. With a dark history of terror and untimely demises of its unfortunate travelers, Buckout Road has claimed victims for centuries.
Buckout Road looks like more than just a gore/slasher flick and more than a psychological thriller. It covers a lot of ground, if you’ll pardon another road pun. The story sounds complex and interesting, and I look forward to screening this one once it hits theaters or VOD.
Synopsis: Buckout Road might be known as the most haunted road in New York State, but nobody really believed it . . . until now. A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students discovers a series of horrific urban legends surrounding Buckout Road may actually be true. The deeper they dig into the road’s dark, mysterious history, the more dangerous their quest becomes. From witches burning at the stake, to backwoods albino killers, to a modern, unstoppable stalker, writer/director and horror-film aficionado Matthew Currie Holmes leaves no genre unexploited in his loving throwback to late-80’s midnight movies.

There’s this new film The Snowman coming out next week starring Michael Fassbender as an investigator looking into a serial killer that decapitates his victims and places their heads onto snowmen. I am guessing maybe his parents wouldn’t let him watch the “Frosty the Snowman” special when he was a kid, or something. Anyway, it has a Silence of the Lambs look to it, and I am really looking forward to screening it.
And the wonderful folks at Universal are giving away a custom designed Snowman plush, which has a removable head, because it’s perfect. You will get the plush, a t-shirt, and a note from the killer!
There’s this new film The Snowman coming out next week starring Michael Fassbender as an investigator looking into a serial killer that decapitates his victims and places their heads onto snowmen. I am guessing maybe his parents wouldn’t let him watch the Frosty the Snowman special when he was a kid, or something. Anyway, it has a Silence of the Lambs look to it, and speaking of that film, Comet TV is also airing it this month.
People keep asking me what movie I am most looking forward to seeing this year, and all year I have been replying with, “You mean besides The Last Jedi?” I know a lot of people were underwhelmed with The Force Awakens and were fairly harsh on how it was essentially just a rehashing of A New Hope, which is true to some extent, but I have always contended that we are only seeing one chapter in a three-part series. What has always enticed me about Star Wars is how they understand the concept of not giving away all the goods at once. It’s like a horror novel or film that saturates the reader with the monster too soon and too often. Star Wars doesn’t make that mistake, well, the classic trilogies didn’t anyway.
