Starz cancels Ash vs Evil Dead after third season

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...

Netflix drops The Titan trailer

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...

Tommy Wiseau starring in upcoming Scary Love

Tommy Wiseau, a man known for making a movie all on his own without any vision or preparation or any idea what he was doing and somehow pulling it off, will be bringing his singular personality to a new project sometime in the future. After...

See The Strangers: Prey at Night early and free

I'm a little bit excited for The Strangers: Prey at Night. It's such a weird and great horror concept, and I thought the first one worked pretty well. I'm hoping this one pulls off the same feeling. If you're looking forward to it as well t...

Review: They Remain

They Remain is a fine example of a film that nearly succeeds at being better than it is. Only touting two billed actors, William Jackson Harper and Rebecca Henderson (as simply Keith and Jessica), the acting is nonetheless superb. Comb...

Review: The Ritual

The Ritual is a horror film that manages to graze a long list of standard horror tropes and still turn out a well made film that’s familiar-ish, but more effective than anything I’ve seen in a while. Netflix has plenty of horr...

Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

Jessica Chastain in talks to star in IT: Chapter Two

In another case of fan casting potentially becoming true, Molly's Game star Jessica Chastain is in talks to star in the sequel to last year's horror hit, IT. As you'd probably guess, Chastain is up for the role of adult Bever...

Review: LIKE ME

I once made a really good burger. I formed the patty myself, added the spices and topped it with smashed avocado. It was a half-pound beast that was proof to the world that I could, in fact, make a burger. I shot a photo of my culinary a...

Stranger Things 3 sheds episode like pollywog skin

Stranger Things season 3 will run 8 episodes, down one from season 2 but the same as season 1.   No reason was announced, but since season 2 felt like it meandered a bit more than season 1, it may just indicate tighter storytell...

Latest Unsane clip is really boring

Unsane, the questionably titled first horror film from Steven Soderbergh, landed a trailer that was pretty good. It established its setup and escalating stakes well and offered plenty of glimpses at the manic atmosphere of the asylum. This...

Steven Soderbergh's Unsane looks completely insane

Steven Soderbergh is well known for, well, everything. The guy directs whatever the heck he wants, and does it however he wants, and that's brought us to Unsane. The first trailer of which is now out, and it looks like it's going to be one...

Steven Soderbergh's Unsane gets new images and not much else

What kind of director would you say Steven Soderbergh is? I have no clue. The man seems to do whatever the hell he wants and be really good it no matter what. His next "whatever the hell he wants" is a horror film called Unsane, which was s...
