One Final Scare? PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION Trailer Is Here!

PA2

Things have been quiet on the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY front, Blumhouse’s inaugural found footage, fright-fest franchise that’s been dragging people out of bed and down the hallway since 2007. The better-than-expected spinoff THE MARKED ONES further opened up the mythology behind Grandma Lois and her demonic lackey Toby, leaving us waiting with bated breath for the […]

Review: ALONE IN THE GHOST HOUSE

Alone-in-the-Ghost-House

As a skeptic, I find it difficult to watch ghost hunting shows without just yelling “BULLSHIT!” at the screen the whole time. And it makes me laugh when people on the shows play up the most minor thing as indelible proof of the afterlife. But when I heard that Henrique Couto, the independent filmmaker/ukulele maestro was crafting a found footage […]

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 […]

Review: MOCKINGBIRD

mockingbird-bryan-bertino-blumhouse-tilt

After an extremely successful run with his debut film THE STRANGERS, director Bryan Bertino’s follow-up was highly anticipated.  Boasting a unique spin on the ‘found footage’ subgenre, MOCKINGBIRD seemed like it was going to be a tense second film from Bertino.  Unfortunately, MOCKINGBIRD is the definition of sophomore slump.  It possesses some of the simplistic […]

Review: INNER DEMONS

Inner Demons still 4

Addiction is scarier than any horror film. The way in which drugs, alcohol or any other substances can overtake someone and cause them to become somebody completely different than who they truly are, is a terrifyingly real issue, and while it’s been tackled in a couple of genre films over the last couple of years […]

Review: DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN

Screen Grab 019 (1)

Possessed pregnancies seems to be a subgenre that is alive and booming, with film likes DEVIL’S DUE, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and now Brian Netto’s  DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN. I don’t know if someone in independent horror land just wants to steer potential baby-makers away from having a kid with stories of the devil executing his […]

New Poster For V/H/S: VIRAL Bypasses Tape Angle; Features Sinister Look

vhs

It’s that time of year, when the latest entry into the popular V/H/S series gets ready to be unleashed onto horror fans. While the first two films went with the tape/footage angle in their posters, the newly released poster for V/H/S: VIRAL offers something new, feeling much more sinister than the previous ones. The film, […]

Review: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW (2014)

As-Above-So-Below

Theatrical horror is notoriously disappointing, so the expectations I had for AS ABOVE, SO BELOW were almost nonexistent.  The lure of cave exploration (a la THE DESCENT) is 100% the only reason I went to see the film, and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself.  I […]
