Review: Terrordactyl

With a clever pun served on a silver platter, Terrordactyl presents itself as a straight to video B-movie masterpiece ready to absorb two hours of your Saturday night. Hoping that prehistoric mayhem might be delivered with heaping extras of...

 
 
The Conjuring 2 Review photo

Review: The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring became quite the hidden gem when it was released three years ago. A nostalgic return to classic horror haunting roots, it breathed new life into the genre by shifting the focus to paranormal hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren...

 
 
 
Holidays Tribeca Review photo

Tribeca Review: Holidays

Horror anthologies are all the rage now. Get a couple of creatives together, pick a theme, and they're allowed to explore one of the smaller ideas they have in their heads. At best, you're in for a good time overall, at worst, each of the s...

See the Green Room early and free

Patrick Stewart as the villain in a horror film. You're sold, right? Good, because we have some tickets for you that will get you into a free screening of The Green Room. The slasher has been getting solid buzz since it's premiere on the fe...

 
 
Last of Us photo

The Last of Us movie probably isn't happening any time soon

Two years ago we got word that a The Last of Us movie was in the works, and then nothing, but some rumors on casting and whispers of a table read. Many of us probably forgot about it, shrugging our shoulders as we replayed the remaster...

 
 
Review: Baskin photo

Review: Baskin

I was talking to another film critic a few weeks ago and he mentioned catching a screener of Can Evrenol's Baskin. "You have to see it," he said. He added that he spent the last third of the movie looking away in disgust and fear, whic...

 
 
Review: They're Watching photo

Review: They're Watching

In almost every found-footage movie, there's a much better non-found-footage movie. The entire idea of found-footage becomes a formal hindrance in which the mere act of filming crazy stuff going on requires constant justification. Or to put...

 
 
Review: Evolution photo

ND/NF Review: Evolution

There's so much going for Lucile Hadzihalilovic's Evolution, a film expertly lensed from the deliberate first shot: looking up to the sky from underwater. From beneath, the ripples and waves on the ocean surface produce undulating shadows, ...

 
 
Review: Under the Shadow photo

ND/NF Review: Under the Shadow

Some of the most notable indie horror movies of the last few years have been by women or about women. For example, see Jennifer Kent's The Babadook, David Robert Mitchell's It Follows, and Robert Eggers' The Witch. Each of these films ...

 
 
10 Cloverfield Lane photo

Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

J.J. Abrams loves his mystery boxes, and the marketing campaign around 10 Cloverfield Lane is so darn mystery box-y: a movie seemingly made in secret, a release scheduled just two months after the first trailer, a title that sugge...

Watch The Chickening, a NSFW and WTF parody of The Shining

Nick DenBoer and Davy Force's The Chickening is a poultry-centric parody of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. I want you to pause a moment, read that sentence again, and then just watch the NSFW video below. That was the Citizen Kane of poult...

Guillermo del Toro to helm Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

If you were ever a child at some point the illustrations from the book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark haunted your dreams. If you're an adult now they probably still do. The series of books collected some pretty solid horror stories...

The Forest Review photo

Review: The Forest

I’ve written before about how wimpy I am at horror movies. I don’t know that I’m “scared” easily, but I’m exceedingly jumpy. A loud sound, sudden movement, or anything of that sort will launch me out of m...

 
 
 
Adventure Time photo

You should be watching the mini-series Adventure Time: Stakes

Last year, Cartoon Network took home audiences by surprise with their first mini-series, Over the Garden Wall. The ten episode event delighted critics and fans with a short form original story, and this year Cartoon Network took a chance ag...

 
 
Shrew's Nest Review photo

Review: Shrew's Nest

When I was in middle school, we'd periodically have a writer, Jon Land, come and talk to us. He'd talk about writing and life and whatever else. (Honestly, I don't really remember what most of those talks were about, but whatever.) I do, ho...

Summer Camp Review photo

Review: Summer Camp

In Resident Evil 4, Leon S. Kennedy is dropped in a Spanish village. He's an all-American hero (by way of Japan), but his enemies don't speak his language. The characters talk, but they speak Spanish.  To a Spanish speaker, this may no...

Interview: Bruce Campbell (Ash vs. Evil Dead)

Bruce Campbell didn't just enter the room—he swaggered. As he made his way to the first roundtable interview, he nodded to the various tables and press. "I will get to you all eventually," he said with equal parts mock-bravado and sma...

Annabelle 2 confirmed to be in the works

Annabelle was a serviceable horror film that actually did a few interesting things with horror movie themes. It also made a crap ton of money, which usually means a sequel right off the bat, but that didn't happen. It's taken a couple ...
