Red Handed trailer sows a cultish family mystery

A dead patriarch, disturbed brother, missing child, mysterious lake, and secret pagan cult are a lot to stuff into one movie. It's like a plot pierogi ready to burst--but Red Handed is willing to risk spilling that hot potato filling all o...

Review: Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep is a strange thing. Part a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's seminal film The Shining and part an adaptation of Stephen King's seminal book The Shining it sits in an awkward spot. See, the film and the book have drasti...

Jeremy Saulnier's next film to star John Boyega

It's been awhile since we heard what Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier's been up to. 2018's Hold the Dark was a low-key Netflix feature, while the director helmed two episodes of True Detective's third season this past January. With ...

Booze and gun violence always mix in trailer for Bloody Marie

There are all sorts of ways to overcome an alcohol dependency--self-help books, therapy, Alcoholics Anonymous. One method covered much too rarely, however, is vigilante violence. Sometimes all you have to do is shoot a gangster with a flar...

Review: Artik

Artik is a film in which a man is hammered in the skull. Another has a fork skewered under his jaw. People are tortured and killed with impunity. Its straight edge hero, however, is forced to face the most damning torture of all: Against hi...

Drive Angry director to treat us with Trick this October

If there's one thing I need everyone to know it's that I love Drive Angry. It's chaotic, wild, ridiculous midnight movie gold, and I cherish it dearly. This isn't all due to Nicolas Cage's performance, either, which was (dare I say) a bit w...

Review: The Nightingale

The Nightingale is a rough film. Which is to say, it covers some serious ground in its trek across the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, and not to question its technical merits. Following her debut with The Babadook in 2014, Jennifer Kent conti...

Artik trailer sets up a harrowing blood bath

Do comic books turn people into serial killers? The answer is a resounding "yeah, maybe" in this first trailer for Artik. The film follows one heavy-metal looking serial killer who's obsessed with comics--and looks to use illustrations to ...

Sean William Scott goes full Dexter in trailer for Bloodline

Oh no, a trailer for The Fanatic is here

We finally have it. Here's our trailer for the Fred Durst passion project once titled Moose. He and star John Travolta have decided to use a more generic title with The Fanatic, and I will give credit where credit is due. The title definit...

Review: Darlin'

Darlin' has followed a long and odd trajectory leading to its creation. This is actually the third film in a sort of trilogy, which started with 2009's Offspring, directed by Andrew van den Houten and based on a Jack Ketchum novel which its...

Review: Midsommar

If I'm being perfectly honest with myself, I've been pretty disillusioned with the horror genre in recent months. I really do hate to be the kind of old man that groans "they don't make them like they used to" but I really do think that hor...

Check out the festivities in new Midsommar trailer

The latest trailer for Ari Aster's Midsommar gives us a decidedly tongue-in-cheek look at the coming festival of beauty and misery. There's such gorgeous color and symmetry here as revelers even sit at symbolically-placed tables to eat din...

Liam Hemsworth is a killer, man in trailer for Killerman

Got to be honest--I'm not feeling this trailer for Killerman. Hemsworth has some emotional intensity that I like, but as a whole I'm not sure I buy him as a hardened criminal. The worst bit, though, is the amnesia angle that sees Hemsworth...

She blinded me with violence in trailer for Blindsided

Pulling a reverse-Don't Breathe--a film which made me think being blind was supposed to morph you into a super-human killing machine that can track people by the smell of their shoes--we have Blindsided, a film where being blind is actuall...

Ready or Not red band trailer makes hide and seek deadly

Fox Searchlight is mostly known for their indie dramas and high brow fair, but it looks like they'll be delivering something a bit more horror centered with Ready or Not. As you can tell from the NSFW trailer above the film is a bloody thr...

A Quiet Place 2 looks to explore the monsters' origins

A Quiet Place is a super great movie that deserved all the praise and success it received last year. We even gave it our coveted Golden Cage for best horror movie! But such success always comes with a sinister caveat--sequels. It's been kno...

Try not to explode in the vacuum of space in Assassinaut

A giant bloody eyeball darting around, embedded behind someone's intestines is the sort of image that always gets the attention of a critic with as refined a palate as my own. If you see the above trailer and find it to be too needlessly b...

You can't pray the wild away in trailer for Darlin'

Review: The Cleaning Lady

Every great horror story has a moral. Whether it's a simple theme like "don't go in the woods," or a slasher-style message of "don't have unprotected sex in the back of your dad's Buick," there's always some point to a scary story. Naturall...
