First look at more violent and bloody Hellboy in action

Hellboy is coming back, but this time he's coming back hard. Horror director Neil Marshall is taking over the reins and he's basically been promising since day one to get real weird up in this thing. This first look of Hellboy him...

Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announ...

See Overlord early and free

Overlord looks schlocky, gruesome, terrible and wonderful. I'm guessing for a sleeper hit on this one with probably some sort of twist on the Nazi/Zombie sub-genre you weren't expecting. Then again maybe not. Maybe it will just be a straigh...

Review: Monster Party

Monster Party is a well-named film. Meaning it has a catchy title. It caught my interest. Especially when the film is described to be about a group of would-be thieves pretending to be caterers robbing a Malibu mansion, only they get m...

In defense of jump scares in movies

There's nothing worse than a horror movie that isn't scary. When the entire purpose of your movie is to scare people and you fail to do that, then it's hard to deny that the movie completely failed at its job. There can be a lot of reason w...

The Birds is the dumbest horror movie concept ever

Picture this: [INT. 1962, Universal lot, Burbank, CA. Board meeting. Overworked studio execs fumbling paper, looking nervous.] EXEC 1: We’re all dry. We’ve got a big gap next spring, no way of filling it, what the heck are we go...

Review: Suspiria

Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is going to piss off so many people. Fans of Dario Argento’s 1977 original will be enraged by the changes. Fans of Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name will be appalled by how brutal, gruesome, and ...

Halloween slashes the competition with best franchise opening

While this is about as surprising as Michael Myers killing people, Halloween came in at the top of the box office, knocking off Venom which had held the top spot for the past two weeks. Coming in at $77.5 million, this is the best opening w...

Review: Blessed Are the Children

Blessed Are the Children is a slasher flick with an intriguing hook. Imagine if the Westboro Baptist Church ghouls who gained notoriety for their vitriolic protests of abortion clinics and funerals stalk a young woman who terminated a pregn...

Review: Halloween

Like all slasher franchises Halloween has had its ups and downs over the years. Sure there's something to appreciate in even the worst of the eight original films and two Rob Zombie reboots, but it's hard to argue that the fr...

Review: Johnny Gruesome

Johnny Gruesome's theme song describes its title character with more poetry than I could dream to achieve: "I died in anger. I want revenge. The only color I see is red. I'm not gonna stop. Blood is gonna drop, until everybody is dead. With...

Review: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

I won’t beat around the bush here; this movie blows. I was gonna do this whole intro I normally do where I tell you about how scary the Goosebumps books were when I was a kid, and blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, and this new thing...

Review: Apostle

Gareth Evans (not to be confused with the also talented Gareth Edwards) is easily one of the best action directors working. The Raid and The Raid 2 are, to put it simply, action masterpieces. His use of space, innov...

See Halloween early and free

Halloween is back... in pog form! No, OK, it's just back in classic form. With the return of Jamie Lee Curtis and functioning as a direct sequel to the first movie the newest edition of Halloween actually looks scary as hell....

James Wan will produce a Train to Busan remake

I have yet to see the Korean film Train to Busan, but it's in my pile of "must watch" movies as the idea of a bunch of people stuck on a train during a zombie outbreak is pretty awesome, and there must be a reason it was an internation...

New trailer for Halloween: Making a Murderer: Michael Myers

Universal recently released a second Halloween trailer, and frankly, if anything, it only adds to the hype created by the first. It begins with a true crime montage of the new Halloween mythos, i.e. the first film exists and now this film ...

Review: Mermaid's Song

I will be very honest and say I only decided to review Mermaid's Song because it meant I could see it for free. I had no prior knowledge of this movie before Tuesday, but you never turn down free. Unfortunately, I forgot there tru...

Review: Assassination Nation

I'm not going to lie about Assassination Nation. The content in this movie is, frankly, uncomfortable to sit through. The movie begins by showing trigger warnings of all of the horrible things that happen over the course movie and tell...

Review: The House with the Clock in Its Walls

You know what a lot of kids movies lack these days (I ask while waving my cane in the air at a cloud)? Charm. There's some amazing stuff going on for sure, but that certain "charming" characteristic is often missing. Maybe it's because chil...

Trailer for Netflix's Apostle has bloody puritanical torture

From writer and director Gareth Evans of The Raid, the first trailer for Netflix's Apostle certainly isn't wanting for violence. We have giant drills to bore into skulls and spiked rolling pins to eat up hands worse than a garbage disposal...
