The Forest (2016)…A Messy Ghost Story That Quickly Loses its Way

Aokigahara, the vast green sea of trees that surrounds the northwest base of Mount Fuji is, at the very least, a location ripe with cinematic possibilities. Dubbed the suicide forest, Aokigahara is Japan’s most popular spot for ending one’s life and is tragically the site of some 100 suicides per year. Oh yeah, the movie didn’t make that up, it’s … Keep Reading…

The Terrible Ten: 2015’s Most Avoidable Horror Movies

Oh the giddy joy of the “the worst list”…it’s awful to admit it, but writing about terrible movies is so much fun I’m almost ashamed of myself…I’m not quite there yet, but I’m working up to feeling actual shame. But let’s not talk about that, instead let’s focus on the worst, most awful horror movies that the last year has … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Reviews: Krampus (2015)

Inspired by ancient European folklore, the titular villain in Krampus is a humongous horned monster who torments naughty children and anyone else in its path who forsakes holiday traditions. Interesting concept… The film itself features a dysfunctional family’s festive antics, and the young boy Max (Emjay Anthony) who loses faith in the holidays, and this loss of innocence is the … Keep Reading…

10 Must Watch Horror Movies of 2015

It’s that magical time of year again lovelies, when reviewers, bloggers and others with far too much time on our hands, look back at the last 12 months of movie releases and shamelessly weed through them as we peck at, dissect, deconstruct and generally tear apart the efforts of others, all for the annual Best and Worst Horror Movies of … Keep Reading…

Radcliffe and McAvoy Go Slumming in Victor Frankenstein (2015)

It’s always disappointing when great actors find themselves neck deep in terrible movies, mostly because history has shown that they can do SO much better. James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, two of the most talented actors working today, have most definitely done better than this, so much better in fact, that I really can’t help but wonder why on earth … Keep Reading…

Anarchy Parlor (2014)…An Unfulfilling Tale of Skin & Suffering

Torture porn…don’t you just hate that term? It implies that someone, somewhere, gets off on watching people suffer excruciating torment, and although that may be true, I prefer to think that most horror fans are only trying to test our limits when watching flicks like Hostel (which I loved), Turistas (meh) and The Human Centipede (which I hated). Anarchy Parlor is … Keep Reading…

Pay the Ghost (2015)…Probably Not the Worst Film You’ll See This Year

Do you remember, way back in the 1990’s, when Nicolas Cage was hailed as one of the greatest living actors? Seems unlikely right now, I know, because if one were to measure his greatness by his last 30 or so films, I could only assume that his talents were grossly overestimated. Make no mistake, Cage’s performances in such classics as his … Keep Reading…

The Final Girls (2015)…A Fun & Fresh Twist on the Slasher Genre

I love a good 80’s slasher flick, don’t you? Friday the 13th, Sleepaway Camp, Cheerleader Camp, Slumber Party Massacre…the cheesier the better as far as I’m concerned, and let’s face it, the 80’s were THE definitive era of cheesy horror. The following decades had plenty of decent killer flicks of course, but the genre started taking itself way too seriously at … Keep Reading…

The Ghosts of the Past Come Knocking in Don’t Look in the Basement 2 (2015)

It has been 42 years since S.F. Brownrigg’s drive-in classic Don’t Look in the Basement was released, and in all that time, the gritty tale of a small, experimental asylum and the lost souls that reside within has yet to lose its edge. Rough and unmistakably indie, the original Don’t is a rare gem of 70’s low budget horror and, although often … Keep Reading…

Introducing a Wicked New Dolly in The Boy (2016) Trailer

Frikin killer dolls man…ever since Chucky messed with my fragile young psyche oh so long ago (well not that long ago), evil living dolls have consistently messed with me. Not that I’m afraid of all of them mind you, but I’m genuinely unnerved by the idea that a toy can come to life and chop my ass up (or any … Keep Reading…
