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...

Review: Cult of Chucky

You may not know this, but Chucky, the red headed doll inhabited by a serial killer's soul thanks to some magic, had a bit of a comeback a few years ago with the straight to video release of Curse of Chucky. Believe it or not, after a ...

There's a new Child's Play in the works for some reason

For those not too in the know, the Child's Play series has been keeping a single story alive for 30 years now. For some reason I don't completely comprehend, Chucky has been a horror icon to many and a joke to more. But regardless the seven...

Review: ClownTown

In the fifty-six years since Psycho was released to an unsuspecting public, theater-goers have borne witness to slashers of every type. From psycho killers dressed like their mothers to psycho killers dressed up like Ronald Reagan to p...

Nightmare on Elm Street is getting rebooted...again

Just like Halloween, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Nightmare on Elm Street is getting yet another reboot. Not having learned their lesson from 2010's debacle (which I actually enjoyed, but it was largely ignored in the b...

First trailer for Eli Roth's Green Inferno

Eli Roth's Green Inferno got plenty of folks talking when it screened at TIFF last year. You can probably guess why considering its a movie by Eli Roth that is clearly heavily influenced by the cult film Cannibal Holocaust. That combi...

Blood Glacier looks gory, has the best title ever

BLOOD GLACIER. Guys. This movie's called Blood Glacier. I can't believe this exists and can't believe it hasn't already existed. In Blood Glacier, a team of glacial researchers (and their trusty and adorable dog) studying in the German Alp...

Saw 8: The Sawenning is in development

You may have thought that since there hadn't been a Saw movie since 2010 and since the last film was called Saw: The Final chapter and since Paranormal Activity had taken over the yearly-released horror movie spot that the Sa...

Rumor: Friday the 13th to return...as found footage?

My life has been lived in semi-constant agony in the years since the Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street movies came out, due in no small part to the fact that there's been nary a word about sequels. In fact, if I remember correct...

 
 
You're Next Review photo

Review: You're Next

It's been a long road for You're Next. The indie horror film has been in development since the earlier 2000s and even once it was finished it took more than a year to find a distributor who would get it out there. Lionsgate eventually stepp...

 
 
Curse of Chucky Trailer photo

Trailer: Curse of Chucky

Curse of Chucky is the direct to home video fifthquel of Child's Play, yet it already looks better than the last two entries. In a sort of reboot of the franchise, the Chucky doll is once again innocent looking and with a new family. Until...

5-Second Films Kickstarting Dude Bro Party Massacre 3

I don't know if you've ever spent an entire day watching 5-Second Films' five-second films, but let me tell you that it's not as pathetic as you think. The guys and girls over there do some damn good work, and if a particular one is bad......

Trailer: You're Next

Consider me riding the hype train (choo choo ride it) for You're Next ever since Matt's glowing SXSW review painted it as such an unavoidable, intelligent film (it also helped that those posters looked creepy as hell) that's even going to ...

You're Next gets three new posters

After catching You're Next at SXSW I swore to do anything and everything to make sure people saw it once it gets released in August. It's really that enjoyable. So here's the first step.  Lionsgate has released three posters showi...

International Trailer: Maniac (NSFW)

Just to reiterate the warning, this trailer is NSFW and I have also been told it spoils some of the film's best scenes by just throwing them right into your face, so if you want to see it with innocent eyes I suggest you move along. Maniac...

Trailer: Silent Night

I was starting to get worried that we were up to our necks in remakes until I saw the trailer for Silent Night. It's a remake of 1984's Silent Night, Deadly Night which I love to watch on Thanksgiving (because it's not quite a Halloween or...

Eli Roth says Thanksgiving is still happening

The Grindhouse double feature produced two of my favorite films, Planet Terror and Death Proof. The neatest thing about the entire experience, however, were the extremely creative fake trailers before the films. So now that Hobo with a Shot...

Review: Detention

It's a shame that Detention is being released on the same day as The Cabin in the Woods. Like that film, Detention serves as something of a deconstruction of the horror genre, but just saying that completely misses the point. It's more Scar...
