    Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stomboel (aka: “The Mo Brothers”)’s newest flick KILLERS is a stunning look into the driving forces of those that kill, and the violence that resides within us all.  Timo Tjahjanto is well known in the horror world for his contributions to V/H/S/2 (“Safe Haven” co-directed with THE RAID‘s Gareth Evans) and […]

    IFC Midnight & Scream Factory Team For ‘THE BABADOOK’ Release 4/14!

    We’d heard early rumors that the fine folks over at Scream Factory might be putting out one of the most acclaimed horror films of the last year on home video.

    REVIEW: Digging Up The Marrow

    I’ve never been particularly shy about my love of most of the stuff put out by Adam Green.  I’ve gone on record multiple times discussing how HOLLISTON was one of my biggest “pick-me-ups” during cancer recovery and how I firmly believe “The Dog Monologue” from FROZEN is probably my favorite horror movie monologue since the […]

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.
