After a string of mediocre horror/suspense releases in recent weeks, Proxy comes along to reaffirm my love of the genre. It's an off-the-wall thriller that's best seen without much introduction...although feel free to read about it in my review of Proxy, which opens Friday in limited theatrical release and on demand.
Summer is just around the corner, and we have brand new looks at two eagerly anticipated horror movies coming out in what's traditionally a slow season for fright films:
- Cabin Fever: Patient Zero: The third movie in the Cabin Fever series begun by Eli Roth opens in theaters in limited release on August 1 and will be available on demand starting June 26. It's got a snazzy new poster (right) and some new photos that promise a grisly good time. Read More...
Between the two of them, it seems that Eric Roberts and Danielle Harris are in every other direct-to-video movie these days, but it's safe to say that the low-budget slasher Camp Dread won't be on either of their career highlight reels. Read about it in my review of Camp Dread.

This week, the horror spoof A Haunted House 2 receives a wide theatrical release, while 13 Sins, Proxy and monster movie Poseidon Rex receive limited theatrical runs, while home video releases are led by Camp Dread, Confession of Murder, Death Do Us Part and Flowers in the Attic.
