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...

See Annabelle Comes Home early and free

Will there very be an end to the Conjuring cinematic universe? Who knows? They keep pumping them out and people keep showing up to them. Plus, they're made for so little that it's nearly impossible for them to flop. Plus, plus, they're most...

Fangboner trailer accidentally pees all over your face

I don't know how many people there are like me in the world (that I haven't tracked down and murdered by now), but if you happen to be anything like me then sometimes you sit down and think, "Man, I've watched too many good movies, lately....

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...

Keep up that killer toy fix with first trailer for Dolls

If there's one fear constantly preying on my mind, one inescapable dread that keeps me up at night, it's this: Between the release of the Child's Play remake and The Boy 2, there's just over a full month's gap in which no movies about kill...

Blood Machines teaser promises a Carpenter Brut score

Carpenter Brut, a horror synthwave musician who just brings the entire house down, doing the score for some trippy sci-fi epic is one of the coolest prospects I could imagine. This teaser for Shudder's Blood Machines only offers the slimme...

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...

The terror is sewn into the new trailer for In Fabric

Appearing to be one part Suspiria (new and old!) and one part Stephen King, In Fabric is the latest mysterious thriller from Peter Strickland, who's given us the great Berberian Sound Studio and The Duke of Burgundy over recent y...

Review: Rondo

Rondo is a weird blend of half-intentional and half-probably-not-intentional weirdness, humor, and spectacle. Sometimes actors forget to act and just say their lines. Sometimes they gleefully nosh the scenery like it's made of cotton candy....

Review: The Perfection

Charlotte (Allison Williams), is a once cello prodigy who had to leave the possibility of fame and fortune behind when her mother fell ill, and she now returns to the school a decade later and meets a new prodigy, Lizzie (Logan Browning) wh...

Review: Brightburn

There's an interesting concept behind Brightburn. We take the Superman myth and instead of him being instilled with good morals by two wonderful Kansans he turns out evil instead. There's so much to unpack in that concept. Debates about nat...

Crawl is going to be rated R, thank god

I'm very excited for Alexandre Aja's Crawl. It's been a while since we had an alligator horror movie to be excited about, and Aja's The Hills Have Eyes reboot is one of the very best remakes ever committed to film. The only question that re...

New trailer for The Nightingale seeks bleak vengeance

Coming off of a hot horror film (or anything so overtly genre, really) can be an incredibly interesting time for a filmmaker. Do they continue to solidify their understanding of a genre's mechanics, maybe the way Jordan Peele jumped f...

Review: Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight

When I covered Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn back in March, I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed afterwards. The movie itself is still pretty good, but I remembered the series being so much better than what Journey's Da...

Saw franchise to reboot through spin-off from Chris Rock

I'm not really sure how to tackle this it's so out of left field, but the Saw franchise is about to get a spin-off/relaunch film developed by Chris Rock. Yea, that Chris Rock. Evidently, the actor came to Lionsgate with an idea for the...

Review: Perfect

Perfect lets you know what you're in for from its opening shot: A pulsing abstract image with a heavy seizure warning shifts in shape and gains clarity and texture as a ponderous voice recites Bachelor's Degree philosophy about life and lov...

New Midsommar trailer showcases a folksy freakout

Following a bombshell of a poster, we now have our closest look at Ari Aster's upcoming Midsommar with its latest trailer. This gives us a peak at the relationship drama that builds up to a hellish festival in scenic Sweden. Honestly, I ha...

Review: Saint Bernard

Saint Bernard is dreamlike moreso than most movies that attempt this distinction. Its journey of a music conductor into the mouth of madness works in symbol and metaphor with gleeful breaks in logic. Moments and places only mesh in that our...

America will Purge for a fifth time summer 2020

The Purge has been a strange franchise as it just keeps on trucking, and yet I don't know anyone who's all that into it. The political-themed horror series landed its fourth entry last year with a prequel and even debuted a TV series. It's ...
