Review: Jurassic Games

From looking at Jurassic Games, you might assume that this is just some knockoff of another Jurassic film franchise meant to profit off confusion and association without any regard for being a good movie in any way shape or form. You'll tur...

Review: Hereditary

Hereditary had so much buzz coming out of festival season that I was chomping at my horror bit to get into theaters and see it. I'm not sure I was more excited to see a single film at SXSW this year (until the surprise announcement of&...

New Suspiria trailer keeps in step with the original

Amazon Studios has just released the first official trailer for Luca Guadagnino's upcoming Suspiria remake, and it actually looks pretty good! Suspiria, as a classic of supernatural horror, has few equals in the genre. It made Dario Argent...

Review: The Night of the Virgin

I love gross movies. There's something about watching a weird monster with a tree dick chase a noble woman through a forest while spilling an endless stream of sperm or a grease-covered sociopath squeezing the eyeballs out of a man's head t...

Paramount Players bought the film rights for Creepy Crawlers

Creepy Crawlers are the reason I didn't learn to cook until I was in my mid-twenties. The anti-Easy-Bake Oven left a deep impression in me that anything I cooked should spurt neon green guts when I smashed it under my fist, or it wasn't wor...

Locke and Key reportedly coming to Netflix

Locke and Key is one of the darlings of the comic horror scene, for as long as I have been into comics people have always suggested that I read it because it's so well written. Unfortunately, I am poor and can't afford every book and my lib...

The perfection of Hannibal Part 2: Rudeness

By the summer of 2014, Hannibal had just concluded its second season with an explosive finale that left viewers shocked. The series was renewed for a third season, praise for the series was unprecedented, and fans were ravenous for more con...

The Night of the Virgin trailer looks like grotesque fun

Gross movies are a blast for me. I know not a lot of people agree, but there's something about splurts of goo and guts whizzing past the screen that fills me with a childlike glee. Needless to say, I'm intrigued by the upcoming The Night o...

Funko is making a Black Phillip figure

To really drive home that God-less feeling that The Witch so beautifully expounded, Funko Pop is going to be releasing a Black Phillip figure this coming July. Breathe it in ye sinners.

Happy Death Day is getting a sequel

Happy Death Day was a film rife with potential, and devoid of reaching that potential. Thanks to a PG-13 rating, and a tepid screenplay, the fantastic concept didn't have the blood and gore it needed to really succeed. Instead it funct...

Tribeca Review: Braid

Leading up to the Tribeca Film Festival, this was the one movie that I was looking forward to the most. Just by doing my initial research on the premise, two women try to rob their insane, delusional friend who forces them to play a game, I...

Paramount is giving us another A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place, a cool movie and massive commercial success, will be getting a sequel, as Paramount announced at CinemaCon. The movie made $213 million against a $17 million budget, so a sequel was inevitable. Hell, ten sequels are probably ...

Review: Downrange

Every streaming platform needs filler, something cheap and disposable to keep subscribers peaking at what's available. Maybe a few people will watch it, because they have nothing better to do. And maybe that's the best way to watch it. ...

Starz cancels Ash vs Evil Dead after third season

Starz has announced that Ash vs Evil Dead will not be renewed for a fourth season. After the April 29 season finale the show will be cancelled, ending a run that painted our screens in prolific amounts of gore and blood, not to me...

Review: Ghost Stories

I was so hyped for this. The trailer looked fantastic, and I'm a sucker for anthology horror. Even if the quality of the shorts was uneven, I enjoyed the original V/H/S's use of a frame story. This movie’s frame story sounded even b...

The Terror Season 1 Recap: 'First Shot a Winner, Lads'

Review: Wildling

As we all know, wildlings are people that live north of the wall that the Rangers, or Black Brothers like to kill. Oh, this isn't Game of Thrones? I just thought what with the 7 year wait it must be. In that case ... Wha...

Welcome to the horror Renaissance!

When it comes to horror movies, it's very hard to impress me. I'm not saying that I'm a horror movie snob, but at a certain point, horror just wasn't scary anymore. I wasn't being unsettled by a gruesome monster, or unnerved at a creepy hal...

Review: Blumhouse's Truth or Dare

I'm not sure if it was hubris or clarity that led Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse, to plaster the studio name before its new movie Blumhouse's Truth or Dare. There have been a plethora of other horror films within the past five years(!) with t...

The First Purge trailer lacks some color

The Purge series is, for me, one that gets continually better. The first squandered the premise as a by-the-numbers home invasion film. The second took the series to the streets and opened it wide up for future installments. And the third,...

Review: A Quiet Place

For the entire night after I saw A Quiet Place I thought every sound was too loud. I put something down and the noise it made stood out to me. Each footstep seemed to fall heavier than it should have. Opening a door was a cre...

See Truth or Dare early and free

Blumhouse is probably the best horror studio working so when they release a new horror film I'm interested. I suppose it's a little arogant to put the studio's name in the official title as they've done with Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, ...

How has no one made a killer gun movie yet?

The upcoming release of Vampire Clay, a movie in which possessed clay comes to life with flesh eating gusto, has had me wondering about movies in which inanimate objects kill people. We have dolls, cars, tomatoes, refrigerators, beds, video...

Vampire Clay trailer showcases the best kind of weird

We got movies with killer tomatoes. We got movies with killer cars. We got movies with killer vaginas and penises. We got movies with killer hair extensions. The film industry has no shortage of creators saying, "I bet this could kill you,"...

SXSW Review: Prospect

Prospect is marketed as a horror film. A sci-fi film too. Before I saw it, another SXSW attendee told me, "Yes, it's those things, but it's a western." OK. So genre-wise, it's a little bit of everything, sort of like a hobo scramble. Y...

SXSW Review: Unfriended: Dark Web

Blumhouse is on a roll right now. They're making some of the biggest hits in horror, and, of course just pulled in an Academy Award nomination for Get Out. That's why I was really excited when an untitled Blumhouse horror film was...

Review: Ravenous

Hoo boy was I hoping for something better out of this. I'll start by saying it has some gorgeous shots throughout, and the performances are largely ok. They don't make up for the general dragginess the movie has, nor it's lack believable ch...
