In this article, iDigitalTimes looks into how The American Genre Film Archive, and film archivists in general, have saved such films as Cannibal Ferox from almost certain extinction.
The Daily Dead explains how Daria Nicoladi, a frequent collaborator of Dario Argento, helped shape Italian horror, both in front of the camera and behind it.

For no other reason than the fact this week sees the release of Bats Vs Supes, Arrow in the Head pits Phantoms (“Ben Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms”) against Hellraiser: Hellworld (Henry Cavill long before Russell Crowe popped him into a spiky giant butt-plug and sent him to earth). Who will win? Probably neither.
