Flixgiving: Matt is thankful for The Babadook

I can count the number of truly scary horror films I've seen this year on one finger. That's not to say there haven't been other good horror movies, but for a horror buff like myself it takes something special to actually mak...

Trailer for The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death

The Woman in Black was a competently done horror film that offered up some pretty good scares and then went along its way to be mostly forgotten. Or so we thought. Hammer, the production company behind the film, though ...

Here's our first look at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Did you know there was an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in the works? It's been in development hell for quite some time with a script that's been written and rewritten many times ov...

Snaxist: Krispy Kreme's Ghostbusters Donuts

Flix for Short: Tuck Me In

The winner of the 2014 Filminute one-minute-film festival, Tuck Me In is an awesome example of minimalist horror. After years and years of so-called scary movies that go on for way too long and show too much, this gives viewers just the right taste of something to be pretty disturbed by.

FlixList: The Ten Best Horror Films on Netflix Instant (2014 Edition)

Review: Ouija

Ouija, read as "wee jah" and not "wee gee," is the latest in a line of films I can't believe exist. Movies are pretty much made from anything with a recognizable name now. I mean, we're in a post-Battleship world here pe...

First teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3

I've never been truly interested in the Insidious series until now. You know why? There's a scene in this teaser where a girl learns her house is haunted through texts...on her T MOBILE SIDEKICK. Oh my god. Insidious: Chapter 3 releases May 29th next year. Check out the poster in the gallery.

James Wan returning for The Conjuring 2

In case you missed the news The Conjuring 2 was delayed until 2016 instead of having a 2015 release date. That was kind of weird because Annabelle did really well at the box office so you'd think they'd want more ou...

Saw producers are ready for more Saw

How many Saw films were there? It seems like twenty were crammed into the franchise's six year run (2004-2010), but now producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules feel like a four-six year break is long enough for people to want mor...

The Babadook's trailer is going to creep you out

The Babadook has been getting great buzz since Sundance and judging from this trailer there's a reason why. Stark and taught the film looks damn scary as it relies on tension and style to scare over blood and gore. I'm ...

Red Band trailer for V/H/S: Viral

The V/H/S series has always scared the heck out of me. I don't why these films hit me harder than any other found footage film, but they just do. I think it might be the static in between vignettes as they give me the feelin...

I have a long-standing history with Kevin Smith, dating back to high school when I first saw the erroneously named "Jersey Trilogy." When Red State came out in 2011, I was intrigued to see what Smith could do with both t...

Review: The Guest photo
Review: The Guest
by Nick Valdez

When I saw the first trailer for The Guest I wasn't particularly interested in the film. It looked generic, bland, and seemed like yet another trite thriller that comes out around Halloween for a cheap buck. But like You're Next (written and directed by the same duo of Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett) last year, there's more here than I initially gave it credit for. 

You're Next went on to become one of my favorite films of 2013, and now The Guest joins alongside as my favorite film of 2014 so far. It exceeded my expectations. Fantastic, thrilling, exquisite, nail biting, hilarious, captivating...

There simply aren't enough buzzwords to capture how much I loved The Guest.

We're getting another I Know What You Did Last Summer

I Know What You Did Last Seventeen Years Ago was a big hit when it first arrived in 1997 during Kevin Williamson's golden age where he wrote scripts for films like Scream and The Faculty. And as such, it did well enough to ge...
