“The Invisible Man” – Movie Review (Spoiler Free)

To say that Universal’s “Dark Universe” was an abject failure would be quite the understatement.  However, from the ashes of its destruction comes the potential for revisiting old classics without having to unnaturally force them into a shared universe.  The Invisible Man is one such example. Screenwriter/director Leigh Whannell has proven once again that he can tell a compelling story that’s tense, thought-provoking, all while … Continue reading “The Invisible Man” – Movie Review (Spoiler Free)

“The Lodge” – Movie Review

In the long tradition of “snowed in” horror films (The Shining, The Thing, Misery, etc.), there’s always a compelling sense of isolation that adds to the suspense.  And while The Lodge is nowhere near as iconic as the aforementioned films, it’s a quiet little thriller that’s worthy of recognition. (Minor Spoilers About the First 5 Minutes of the Movie) Off to a Traumatic Start The … Continue reading “The Lodge” – Movie Review

“Brahms: The Boy II” – Movie Review

(Spoiler free for this movie, but spoilers for the first one) Already Traumatized … Continue reading “Brahms: The Boy II” – Movie Review

“Jessica Forever” – Movie Review

Originally released in France back in 2018, the highly anticipated dystopian thriller Jessica Forever has finally come to Shudder!  However its reception among audiences has been largely mixed, and while both arguments hold merit, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Mother To All The film begins with a group of young men dressed in paramilitary gear, as they roam the suburbs of France, merely … Continue reading “Jessica Forever” – Movie Review

20 Enlightening Facts About “Pitch Black”

Long before he was voicing Groot or driving cars in a fast and furious manner, Vin Diesel was bringing an iconic criminal to life, known as Richard B. Riddick. This science fiction franchise has spanned several subgenres between films, but the one think that links them together is Vin Diesel’s performance as the lovable (and badass) Riddick. And it all began 20 years ago, with … Continue reading 20 Enlightening Facts About “Pitch Black”

The Outsider: “In the Pines, In the Pines” Review

Following the biggest cliffhanger the series has thrown at us thus far, the latest episode takes its time and makes us wait, but it ends up being worth it…mostly. On the surface, “In the Pines, In the Pines” is without a doubt the most tense and thrilling episode of the series, but beneath all that, there’s so much more to it. Spoilers Ahead – You’ve … Continue reading The Outsider: “In the Pines, In the Pines” Review

“VFW” – Movie Review

We’ve seen generational gaps over the centuries, but nothing quite like this.  Joe Begos’ latest horror/action/thriller pits a group of older (and one younger) veterans against a horde of drug-induced mutant punks.  It’s gory, over the top, boasts a great 80’s inspired synth soundtrack, and is awesome in every way! Birthday From Hell The film begins with Fred (Stephen Lang) meeting up at his local … Continue reading “VFW” – Movie Review

“Fantasy Island” – Movie Review

On the surface, remaking the classic TV series Fantasy Island into a straight-up horror film isn’t a terrible idea.  With so many soulless remakes and reboots simply churning out cheap imitations of nostalgic properties, Blumhouse’s idea to change genres for Fantasy Island is a refreshing new take. It’s everything that a remake should be…at least in theory.  In practice, this film wastes its immense potential … Continue reading “Fantasy Island” – Movie Review

With Valentine’s Day upon us, millions will be enjoying romantic comedies, while other millions will be forced to watch those against their will.  That said, even Valentine’s Day can be celebrated via the lens of horror, and we don’t just mean with My Bloody Valentine (or its mediocre remake) either.

“House of 1000 Corpses” vs. “Devil’s Rejects” vs. “3 From Hell”

Spanning 16 years, Rob Zombie’s Firefly family trilogy remains an iconic piece of modern grindhouse cinema.  Each entry came at very different points in Zombie’s career, and each one means something different to audiences.  Admittedly, this is completely subjective, but we still thought it would be fun to take a look at each film and pit them against each other to see which is the … Continue reading “House of 1000 Corpses” vs. “Devil’s Rejects” vs. “3 From Hell”
