UPDATE: First images of Goosebumps starring Jack Black

UPDATE: We've gotten more images! Most importantly, we have our first look at Slappy the Puppet, one of the standouts from the Goosebumps universe. Other than that, I have no idea what the other monsters are although one look...

New clip from Honeymoon is intriguing (and not spoiler-y)

Although I never reviewed it, Honeymoon was the best film I saw at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. It's a cabin in the woods sort of film with some nice creep factor and incredible chemistry between the two main charact...

The Ring 3 gets director, reminds us it exists

Do you folks remember The Ring? It was a horror movie in which watching a VHS tape leads to your death in seven days when a ghost girl comes out of a TV to eat donuts or something. It was all the rage for about two weeks, the...

First teaser trailer for Conjuring spin-off, Annabelle

Because I'm feeling far colder toward spin-offs and sequels lately, I still can't believe this exists and is coming to theaters rather than home video. I know production of these films is always quick, but man it feels like ...

Review: The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge came and went without much fanfare. It had an interesting premise (which spawned the #CrimeDay Twitter game here on Flixist), but wasted it with a by-the-numbers home invasion film. When The Purge: Anarchy was ...

First trailer for Ouija, a movie someone thought was a good idea

I really, really can't believe this exists. You know how on some TV shows you'll see a joke about an intentionally bad trailer based on a random product? This is exactly like one of those. In the same vein as Battleship, Oui...

Annabelle from The Conjuring gets spin-off release date

If you remember The Conjuring, which you may not since it was kind of forgettable, then you probably remember the creepy ass doll Annabelle. As with all dolls who look old it was pretty damn scary and evidently caught on enou...

Review: Deliver Us From Evil

In all my years seeing movies, I don’t think I’ve seen a collective shrug quite like the one my theater experienced upon leaving Deliver Us From Evil. A passive gesture of that magnitude could only have been ...

Review: Beneath

Coal mining is a scarily dangerous profession. Our need for crude energies leads thousands of people to risk their lives every day mining for energy. It's a wonder that with such harsh conditions, it's taken this long for a f...

Second trailer for The Purge: Anarchy has crimes in it

Although I don't really like The Purge because it never focused on cool crimes like eating zoo animals or naked jaywalking*, it's got a wonderful premise that's ripe for stories. And it looks like The Purge: Anarchy is going...

Review: Coherence

Coherence is part of a genre that will be heretofore referred to as "subtle sci-fi." Mention sci-fi to anyone and they'll think of Star Wars or Star Trek first. And they'll think of those films b...

Here are two posters for Dracula Untold featuring a man of bats

Dracula Untold, formerly (and awfully) titled Dracula: Year Zero, has debuted two new posters for you to compare to Batman. I don't really understand why we need an origin film for Dracula, or why someone would ask for o...

Review: All Cheerleaders Die

With a title like All Cheerleaders Die, I honestly wasn't very excited to see this film. I'm not a huge horror fan, and I don't usually enjoy films full of gratuitous nudity and violence. But because this is what I get paid t...

Teaser trailer for restoration of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is impressive

If you haven't seen the 1920 classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, you need to fix that immediately. Conveniently, it's out of copyright, so I've embedded it below. But like most films from back then, it doesn't look so good....

Trailer for horror flick Beneath feels claustrophobic

In Beneath, a long-time coal miner played by Jaff Fahey decides to take his environmentalist lawyer daughter, played by Kelly Noonan with him for a trip into the mines for his last day on the job. Of course, things soon go a...

New trailer for The Green Inferno shows lots and lots of promise

I've been anticipating Eli Roth's upcoming cannibal film, The Green Inferno, since it was announced. As a fan (if that's the right word) of the 1980 classic (definitely the wrong word) Cannibal Holocaust, I wanted to see wha...

Trailer for Deliver Us From Evil has EVIL written all over it

Everyone, let me be real for a second. During this trailer for Jerry Bruckheimer's first horror movie production, Deliver Us From Evil, I jumped once. I won't tell you where or why, but I did jump. Now the rest of the traile...

First trailer for V/H/S: Viral is pretty freaky

The third film in the V/H/S series, V/H/S: Viral, has a first trailer that still looks like this series is gonna spook the bejeebus out of me. I'm not a fan of found footage (or horror in general), but I do love anthologies ...

Review: Blood Glacier  photo
Review: Blood Glacier
by Liz Rugg

When I heard there was a movie titled Blood Glacier, I knew I wanted to see it. After learning about its premise, my heart was set on it. What Blood Glacier ended up being was more, oh -- so much more, than I ever expected.

I was able to catch a screening of Blood Glacier at this year's Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2). While C2E2 is a comics convention, I'm sure the show organizers expected there to be enough of an overlap of horror movie fans to make the screening worthwhile. A small crowed gathered for the screening, most of which was made up of knowledgeable horror fans, unlike myself. Disclaimer: I know pretty much nothing about horror movies, they're just not my thing. What I do know about however, is "so bad it's good" movies, and in that sense, Blood Glacier was right up my alley.

First trailer for found footage horror film, As Above, So Below

I'm not usually one for found footage horror, or even found footage (or horror) films in general, but As Above, So Below definitely caught my eye. Just look at this teaser poster! Holy maloney is that menacing! Taking p...
