    Masked Trio Ready To Invade Theaters Again In THE STRANGERS 2?

    THE STRANGERS was a surprise sleeper hit in the Summer of ’08 for Universal. Not only did it kill at the box office ($52 million on a $9 million budget), but in terms of quality as it’s a solid studio horror offering. A sequel has been oddly laying dormant since then, with a script by […]

    “Look What I Made You”: In Defense Of James Wan’s DEATH SENTENCE (2007)

    Mention James Wan’s name, and more times than not, the SAW or INSIDIOUS series will come up.

Review: AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR

Nicholas McCarthy hit the horror scene hard with his 2012 feature debut, THE PACT, catching viewers off guard and getting tons of praise within the horror community as well. With such a strong first film, the pressures of following up that debut could make a lesser man cave under the pressure, but alas, McCarthy obviously […]

Review: DAY OF THE MUMMY

Oh mummy movies with huge faces and full blown action-extravaganza DVD covers. I mean, judging from the look of this one, DAY OF THE MUMMY is sure to be a full on EPIC adventure film, full of mummy-horror and a lot of chasing jeeps and guns, right? Sadly, the reality of the film tends to […]

Bluray Review: LORD OF ILLUSIONS

This year has definitely been one of a hit for both Scream Factory AND Clive Barker.

RED BAND TRAILER FOR [REC] 4: APOCALYPSE GOES BIG; BRINGS FINAL CHAPTER TO THE MASSES

The [REC] series has given horror fans a unique experience since hitting the genre with the first, found-footage-angled entry.
