Not to be confused with the absurd 2012 horror-comedy Hellbenders, Shudder’s latest original movie Hellbender is a family affair in every sense of the word.

Sheltered Existence After a legitimately badass opening scene taking place many years in … Continue reading “Hellbender” – Movie Review
Several years after his peak as the undisputed comedic king of the box office, and years before his decline into making creepy internet videos addressed to Emma Stone, Jim Carrey (like many other comedic actors) went through a phase where he wanted to try his hand at more dramatic roles.

However, the next theatrical venture didn’t go … Continue reading “The Queen of the Damned” 20 Years Later: Is It as Bad as We Remember?
Our sins always have a way of catching up to us. At least that’s the way most major religions describe the universe. Whether it be the will of a deity, karma, or some other supernatural force, many cultures have some idea or believe in some form of cosmic justice. Writer/Director Sean Ellis may be more known for indie dramas, but his first foray into horror … Continue reading The Cursed – Movie Review
When every other horror franchise is struggling to maintain relevance in today’s climate, what’s a vintage backwoods slasher to do but try to keep up. It seems like this was the primary motivation for the latest entry in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series.
