The Loss of a Legend: Director Wes Craven Dead at 76

Wes Craven, the visionary director of such horror classics as The Last House on the Left (1972), The Hills Have Eyes (1977) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), has passed away today, tragically losing his battle with brain cancer. Like his legions of fans across the globe, I am shocked and deeply saddened by this terrible loss and as … Keep Reading…

Sinister 2 & The Fall of Mr Boogie

Despite what some may think, invoking fear in an audience is not an easy task. Most horror films, regardless of budget, very rarely manage much more than a well placed jolt or momentary scare that fades as quickly as it surfaces, and unfortunately Sinister 2 is one of those movies without any real frights…or much else worth watching either. The original … Keep Reading…

Indie Horror Highlight: P.O.V. (2014)

Oh I do like a good indie horror…Unfortunately many truly independent horror films (we’re talking zero budget) are so fucking awful they make me wanna go out and buy a shrimp fork just so I can gouge my eyes out with it rather than continue watching… And speaking of gouging out one’s eyes, there’s plenty of that to be had … Keep Reading…

Victor Frankenstein (2015) Trailer

Hmmm… Victor Frankenstein is the latest classic horror tale getting the updated big screen treatment, with this version of the timeless story being told though the eyes of the mad doctor’s assistant Igor. Of course this Igor comes in the form of the short but delectable Daniel Radcliffe (sans physical deformities but sporting an utterly hideous haircut) and the doctor … Keep Reading…

Final Girl (2015)…Stylish to a Fault but Seriously Lacking in Substance

Sigh…How I wanted to love this movie… The familiar story of a young woman named Veronica (Breslin) who, as a child, is recruited into a nameless, covert agency by a calculated man named William (Wes Bentley, who I forever think of as the plastic bag boner boy from American Beauty) and trained to be an assassin…of sorts. At the completion of … Keep Reading…

The Boy Next Door (2015)…A Bland Mess from Start to Finish

Hmmm…. Ummm…okay, here goes nothing. Although obviously meant to be an edgy, modern thriller about the dangers of obsession (and sleeping with teenage boys), The Boy Next Door is really nothing more than a showcase of Jennifer Lopez’s charms (which are admittedly plentiful) in a variety of flattering outfits and in varying states of undress…so in that aspect this movie is very … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Reviews: Goodnight Mommy (2014)

As the film opens, we find 9 year old twin brothers Elias and Lukas residing in the isolated but picturesque Austrian countryside with their nameless mother (Susanne Wuest) who is recovering from plastic surgery. Despite their seemingly peaceful and idyllic life, the boys quickly begin to suspect that the scary, bandaged woman in their home is someone…or something other than … Keep Reading…

Goodnight Mommy (2014) Trailer and The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of

Hooooly Shit is this trailer ever EPIC! Goodnight Mommy is the latest Austrian offering by directors Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz, and if the trailer is anything to go by (yes yes I know trailers aren’t reliable) it looks like it may be a fan-fucking-tastic horror experience. Bleak and atmospheric, the trailer hints at the tale of nine year old … Keep Reading…

Blacula (1972)…An Unexpectedly Awesome 70’s Vampire Classic

I hate to admit it, but this is my very first viewing of this 70’s vampire romp. I’m not sure why, but despite catching a glimpse here and there I had generally avoided watching Blacula over the years. I think the title put me off…oh come on, can you blame me, I thought it was going to be some low-brow cheese-fest (and not … Keep Reading…

Jeffrey Combs Plays a Twisted Game in Would You Rather (2012)

To say that I am slightly obsessed with the many films of horror god Jeffrey Combs is, admittedly, putting it lightly. Few actors are as truly gifted and tragically underrated as the prolific star of such classic as Re-Animator, From Beyond and The Frighteners (which is my personal favorite Combs performance…although whether or not this one is a classic is up … Keep Reading…
