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 […]

“Good Luck is Bad Luck” and the Theatrical Superstitions of ‘THE GALLOWS’

THE GALLOWS

The first time I performed on stage, I was cast as a lead in a baseball musical in the first grade. The rest of the cast was comprised of 3rd graders who were FURIOUS that a first grader was given a lead, but I apparently didn’t suck and I nabbed a starring role. My parents […]

Review: FIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD

maxresdefault (4)

There are filmmakers out there who themselves are die-hard horror fans that spend hours upon hours researching and brainstorming to try and come up with an idea of creating a film that will go against the norm and become something that will stand on its own and apart from the other films competing for that […]

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 […]
