The Lodgers 04 - Charlotte Vega as Rachel 4.5


Strong visuals alone can’t save The Lodgers from being a dreadfully average and dull horror experience however, and although my ears perk up anytime I hear about a new entry into this subgenre that sees far too few contemporary releases, this is one I have suggest viewers pass on.



Not since the days of David Cronenberg has the classical approximation of love as being the act of “giving a part of one's self to another” ever been more grotesquely literal than in Xander's Robin's destitute romance Are We Not Cats.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD Criterion Blu-ray Review

Night of the Living Dead defined what the zombie film would become and is easily one of the most influential pieces of cinema in horror, but more than that, it’s just a fantastic movie that’s worth adding to your collection.

Victor Crowley, the fourth film in the Hatchet saga and named for its hulking deformed slayer, continues the concept established in the first three movies but on a much smaller scale. The tone is cornier, and there are fewer of the Crowley kills that made the series stand out.

The sound of falling trees mixed with screams recalls The Blair Witch Project, but The Ritual leaves way less to the imagination and is less effective for it.

Winchester is just as basic thematically, wasting, and even contradicting, its interesting ideas rooted in grief and regret. Rough resolutions posing as cleansing poetic justice are missing rhyme and reason.

In a somewhat lackluster year for horror, Nicolas Pesce’s beautiful, monochromatic nightmare The Eyes of My Mother easily stands out as one of the most disturbing and striking films you’ll see this year. An exploration in isolation and the need for human contact lay the groundwork for this unnerving tale of loneliness.

Scherzo Diabolico, the latest film from Adrián García Bogliano, is a twisted tale of revenge that continually subverts the viewer’s theories about where it’s going and how it’s going to end. It’s a tough film to watch and an even tougher one to write about, considering the unique narrative path it takes, but this proves to be Bogliano’s best film yet, featuring a completely insane conclusion that shocked even a horror nut like myself.

emelie 7


I feel like recently we’ve been entering somewhat of a renaissance in indie horror, with new and unique films popping up all over the place that defiantly rebel against the formulaic banality to which the genre so often falls victim. Michael Thelin’s feature debut, Emelie, is a film that fits the bill, delivering a tense, unnerving thriller that takes a fresh look at the babysitter horror story.
