IUD? More like RIP! in trailer for Marla

Sometimes protection kills (!) in this trailer for Marla, a female written/directed/led horror about an IUD gone horribly wrong. IUDs can be painful, and it's certainly more than a little eerie to have something like that installed into su...

Review: Trick

Trick bills itself as a new breed of slasher film--which, to be fair, is how most new slasher films bill themselves--and that's apparent from the offset. Sure, this is a movie about a masked teenager who goes on a killing spree on Halloween...

Some rich idiot drops $200,000 on the ax from The Shining

We've all been there: You're in the final seconds of an eBay auction, and suddenly some sniper out to make your life miserable ratchets the price beyond what you know is reasonable. Your guts are boiling with fury. You're not thinking strai...

Jordan Peele makes a Universal deal

In 2017, Jordan Peele surprised movie fans with his mega-hit Get Out, followed by this year’s equally impressive Us. With a track record made of molten hot fireballs, Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions has found a new partner in Un...

Review: Killer Sofa

Let's get this controversy out of the way right now: The piece of demonic furniture in Killer Sofa is (big gasp)... not actually a sofa. It's a recliner. It's a chair. As Oxford describes it, a sofa is "a long upholstered seat with a back a...

Review: Koko-di Koko-da

A married couple attempts a camping trip, the first vacation they've had since an outing to celebrate their daughter's birthday. There is no child, now. They're alone, despondent, and aggravated as they twist through backroads before stoppi...

The Decade Decathlon: 2014

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. I'm not going to mince words here; if 2013 was the...

Drugs are bad (but fun!) in first trailer for The Wave

Giving off some serious John Dies at the End vibes, the above trailer for The Wave reminds us that taking drugs from strangers is a terrible idea--that could also give us powers and let us hop through alternate dimensions. So maybe they're...

David Slade is set for a Dark Harvest

It seems natural that Halloween would attract supernatural tales involving a murderous pumpkin. That is at least part of the thinking behind the novel Dark Harvest. This novel is now being adapting into a movie with David Slade jumping on a...

The Furies trailer promises eight times the gore

As a person who pretty well only consumes horror media, I feel like I can safely say from a position of certainty and authority that this trailer for The Furies has a lot of horror in it--like maybe eight times as much as your average horr...

IT could be getting a supercut combining both chapters

Ready for even more debilitatingly-scary, dimensional-hopping clowns? Our own Jesse Lab found It Chapter Two's lengthy runtime to drag, and its welcome fizzle out, box office numbers on the Stephen King sequel would still indicate a wh...

Review: One Cut of the Dead

One of my favorite things about low-budget filmmaking is that when you see the strings, when you feel the quirks and inconsistencies that haven't been edited, re-shot, or focus-grouped away you get to see the people within the movie. You se...

Satan's about to get Shat on in trailer for Devil's Revenge

The Shat-man himself is returning to glorious B-movie territory with this trailer for Devil's Revenge, and in a surprise twist it looks like he'll be in more than one or two minutes of the film! A usual heartbreak for a connoisseur of low-...

Contest: The Dead Don't Die, and neither do our giveaways

Today's contest sees the dead rise again in a Blu-ray copy of The Dead Don't Die. Man, zombies just don't die. I mean, they do kinda, but I meant the zombie genre. In both movies and gaming it's still going pretty strong, despite being...

Review: IT Chapter Two

It's not every day that you're able to witness a successful remake of a classic property, but 2017's IT was easily better than the original TV miniseries that wormed its way into the hearts of millions in the 90’s. Unlike that miniser...

Review: Satanic Panic

Most horror films try to spread the idea that your average devil worshiper is some basement-dwelling white dude who lives off-the-grid, has no income of his own, and is repellent to anyone with half a brain unfortunate enough to land anywhe...

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...

Review: Clownado

Clownado, a movie entirely based on some lazy wordplay, found the most surefire way to get my undivided attention. What can I say? I'm a man of simple pleasures. This low-budget slice of horror/comedy has the added pleasure of conjuring in ...

The Dead Center trailer brings a demon to the psych ward

Arrow Video has released a trailer for its upcoming psychological horror The Dead Center, and it looks sufficiently spooky. The film follows a psychiatrist working in an emergency psychiatric ward when a mystery patient shows up with no me...

One Cut of the Dead wants you to skip its own trailer

Doing a movie in a single take is all the rage these days, so we should have all assumed that someone would make a zombie movie using that same hook. And so here we are with One Cut of the Dead, the Birdman of zombie movies--except this lo...

Review: Ready or Not

It's very rare for me to actually be excited by horror films. For whatever reason, my suspension of disbelief just doesn't work in that setting. Watching a character get chased by some demonic/psychotic killer doesn't fill me with dread bec...
