Alexander Aja’s alligator/hurricane thriller Crawl seeks to take a bite out of theaters this weekend, so it seemed like a perfect time to look back at some of the best animal-centric horror movies ever made. The list proved to be slightly tricky, as intentionally awful (?) fare such as Anaconda and Snakes on a Plane […]
The vampire flick Let Me In
was a surprise flop in theaters, but the surprisingly good film should be a hit on DVD and Blu-Ray.
I was excited when I popped The Uninvited into my DVD player this morning. After all, I was looking forward to some creepy dead kid and a bunch of disturbing monsters haunting a scantily clad Odette Yustman. But then it dawned on me that I was thinking of The Unborn, that other January horror release. […]
At some point in our lives, we all reach a split in the road. These are the decisions that shape us, that define our futures. I reached such a split tonight. On the one side of the gaping four-story mall promenade, a line for a free screening of Adventureland. On the other, The Haunting in […]
Midnight Meat Train looked like a pretty freaky and gory movie, but didn’t get much play in theaters. MovieWeb, however, has posted the full movie online:
I just finished watching Child’s Play, as the new Chucky’s 20th Birthday Edition arrives on DVD September 9th. While the franchise has digressed into more humorous, satirical stories over the years, it’s amazing to see just how creepy and gritty the original was. As everyone knows by now, Child’s Play is about a serial killer […]
The second independent film I’m featuring this week is The Horror Vault, a cheerful comedy about two young people in love, frolicking in the flowers, snow and gentle summer breeze. Or, maybe, it’s a compilation of several short horror films inspired by Tales from the Crypt, Masters of Horror and Creepshow. Here is a description […]
Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween comes to DVD this Tuesday, including Halloween: Unrated Director’s Cut, a two-disc special edition DVD. Those of you who have read my full Halloween movie review know that I actually thought this new version was great, and a second viewing cemented my opinion that this movie kicks ass. I was […]
Remember that horror movie survey we ran way back in October? Here’s some of the results: A survey conducted by Bellevue, Wash.-based movie website Movie-Source.com found that among seven recent and upcoming horror movies to be released in the fall or winter of 2007, Aliens vs. Predator Requiem, a sequel to the 2004 box office […]
A new trailer for the upcoming movie The Eye, starring Jessica Alba as a woman who regains her ability to see and a whole lot more, is now online. The film is a remake of a Chinese horror movie.
Hey everyone, check out the new Cloverfield movie poster. The marketing campaign has kicked into full gear as we’ve seen the trailer, a ton of new revealing photos and an official title all in the last week – the only thing yet to be seen is the monster (or monsters) itself. Frankly, I hope they […]
Skinwalkers is a werewolf movie from Lionsgate, and holding firm with the consistency of Lionsgate’s horror films, the movie is a complete disaster. It appears as though the director went out of his way to make a horror movie that lacks all suspense, horror and entertainment. The werewolves are barely in it (at least in […]
The new Cloverfield trailer – which confirms the name of Cloverfield for a project that has had more rumors and buzz than any I can imagine in recent history – has found its way onto YouTube, albeit in a very low quality format. Still, it looks pretty exciting… Check it out below.
Yahoo! just posted the new movie trailer for Amusement, a horror movie about a bunch of young people who get killed by a serial killer clown. Clowns are creepy, there’s no denying it, and Amusement will hopefully use that creepiness to its full potential. Of course, it isn’t It (the Stephen King movie), and the […]
Thanks to the 1,500+ who took my horror movie survey last month! I’ll publish the results soon (there are some obvious results and a few surprises), but I just wanted to say congratulations to Karen Mead of Wingdale, New York, as she is the winner of the six horror DVDs. Karen, I’ll be sending out […]
