Countdown to 2017 with These 5 New Year’s Fright Flicks!

Everyone knows New Year’s Evil, right? It’s a Cannon film from 1980 that tries to ride on the slasher holiday craze and is only remembered due to its heavy reliance on the titular calendar day. It’s cheesy fun but not much else. The only other notable New Year’s horror flick is Bloody New Year, a […]

Train to Busan – Yupp, Zombies Are Still Terrifying

If there is one sub-genre that horror fans keep claiming is “dead” or “used up” it’s the zombie flick. With The Walking Dead being as massive as it is and every amateur filmmaker making their attempt at a Night of the Living Dead the market has become more than saturated. That doesn’t mean, however, that […]

Home for the Holidays: The Proto-Slasher that Came Before Black Christmas

Here’s the deal, there aren’t a lot of great holiday horror films. One of the hands down best, a genuine classic, is Bob Clark’s seminal proto-slasher, Black Christmas. Released in 1974, Black Christmas set the stage for slashers years to come, including little Mikey Myers and his numerous rampages on Halloween night. Yes, Black Christmas […]

The Autopsy of Jane Doe – More Movies From Andre Ovredal, Please

One of my favorite aspects of the modern horror scene is the tendency of some its best filmmakers to bend the genre and mash it up into a wonderful crock pot full of horror goodies. Norwegian director Andre Ovredal is one such voice in this community and his 2010 film Troll Hunter showed us just […]

The OA is a Masterpiece in its Vision

When I say “The OA is a Masterpiece in its Vision” as opposed to simply “The OA is a Masterpiece,” I choose those words very carefully. Even though I personally consider it to be a masterpiece, I can’t tell you, the reader, that it’s a masterpiece to you or as some objective, universal truth. However, […]

Beyond the Gates — The Horror Version of Jumanji

I can’t say that Beyond the Gates is a great movie, but for a low-budget indie, it’s quite enjoyable and the theme of the movie is fun. In fact, it feels more like an anthology segment than a proper movie really, which I actually mean as a compliment. Not sure how I missed it growing […]

All Through the House Review: An Early Christmas Present for Horror Fans

Today is Nov 25th. In this, the year 2016, that means it’s Black Friday…which also represents the beginning of the holiday season. It’s inescapable. Christmas lights will be strewn about, shopping mall Santas will be bringing children to fits of panic, and the Hallmark channel will be running non-stop Christmas films (all of which my […]

Through the Cracks: Thanksgiving Edition – Blood Rage

Sometimes a film goes unnoticed for far too long. Few people discuss it or even seem to be aware of its existence. As an avid horror fan, I make it my goal to track down as many obscure flicks as I possibly can. I feel as if I’ve seen it all, but luckily, every now […]

Layers of Fear: Like Going Inside a Nightmare on Elm Street Film

With the game Layers of Fear, I think outside of there being VR support for the game or maybe a sequel some time in the future, this is perhaps the closest anyone will ever get to feeling the experience of living a Nightmare movie. This game is crammed full of amazing visuals, creative scares, and […]

Challenge Week #4 – 31 Films. 31 Days. Happy Halloween!

In celebration of Samhain, a lot of horrorphiles have turned to lining up epic lists of 31 horror films for all 31 days of October. I’ve never actually done this myself as, to be quite honest, I watch horror films all year long. However, with work and numerous other responsibilities getting in the way, I […]
