Supernatural Horror THE DAMNED Trailer

IFC Midnight released a new trailer for their upcoming horror title The Damned (formerly titled Gallows Hill).  The film is directed by Víctor García (Hellraiser: Revelations, Mirrors 2), and centers on a group of travelers who unwittingly unleash an ancient evil after freeing



After one already unnecessary sequel, it seems that there’s still some interest in creating some sort of franchise out of Eli Roth’s directorial debut, Cabin Fever.  Although the latest iteration, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, is superior to the train wreck that was Cabin Fever 2, this is still just another forgettable, implausible and laughably bad horror sequel.


Kickstart Sunday: GEHENNA

Japanese horror films never cease to scare the crap out of me, and Hiroshi Katagiri‘s Gehenna looks like it will be no exception.  Just look at the still above and tell me that doesn’t creep you out just a bit.


Grindhouse Weekly: THE BROOD (1979)

When it comes to body horror, the subgenre is synonymous with Canadian director David Cronenberg. While his most widely accessible films arguably came later in his career, his most personal entry in his early body-horror films is The Brood. The filmmaker has proven his talents time and again. The term “visceral” – so often tossed around when describing his films from the 1970s to 1980s – is a fitting descriptor for such films as Shivers (aka They Came From Within, 1975) and Rabid (1977).


Nicholas McCarthy’s AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR Trailer

IFC has released a new trailer for Nicholas McCarthy‘s upcoming horror film At the Devil’s Door (formerly titled Home).  McCarthy previously directed the sleeper hit The Pact, however At the Devil’s Door does little to bring anything unique to the genre, but

One of my all time favorite movies, and one that still scares the shit out of me to this day is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  Now, the film has been given a gorgeous 4K restoration with the supervision of director Tobe

Witching_and_bitching_poster 6.5


Everything about Witching and Bitching is completely absurd and over the top in the best possible ways. Despite the undesirable title, Álex de la Iglesia’s Witching and Bitching is a raucously fun ride that packs in plenty of laughs and gross-out moments. Harkening back to the classic days of horror comedy, before directors like Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson were playing with Hobbits and wizards, this is a new-school film that has a very old-school feel.

Willow_Creek_Theatrical_Poster 6.5


Going into Willow Creek, the latest offering from writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait, I found myself feeling conflicted before the film even began. On one hand, my found-footage horror fatigue is still in full force, making it difficult to feel interested in anything in this stale genre. On the other hand, Goldthwait has proven himself multiple times over as a solid director, and I was interested to see his take on a horror film. Fortunately, Willow Creek zaps a few jolts of life back into found footage with a funny, tense and rewarding little Bigfoot movie. The film stars Alexie Gilmore and Bryce Johnson as a young couple setting out to make a Sasquatch documentary in the mountains of Northern California where the famous Patterson-Gimlin footage was caught. As one might imagine, they receive more than they bargained for when strange things begin to happen out there in the forest.

The found footage genre. The genre where the audience is watching “recently discovered” footage about an event or in some cases a mystery. It raised eyebrows and churned stomachs in 1980 with Cannibal Holocaust. It came to prominence with the immensely successful and trend setting 1999 release The Blair Witch Project. It likely reached its zenith with the Paranormal Activity franchise. Primarily a staple in the horror genre the found footage film has met with mostly disastrous results. Chernobyl Diaries, The Amityville Haunting and Apollo 18 are just a few titles that have used the format and all of them were pretty bad films. Now comes Brian Netto, who makes his directorial debut, and his refreshing and mostly effective found footage thriller, Delivery.

COOTIES review

What would happen if the disgusting, processed chicken nuggets served in school lunches harbored a deadly virus? Well, according to Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion’s horror/comedy Cooties, the children would turn into ravenous flesh hungry monsters.
