• Seven Surprisingly Good Remakes Nobody Saw

    Read More

    Why do we have so many remakes? Is there any single question—maybe not worded quite exactly like that—that you hear more from horror fans on the Internet? I see it asked every single day in one form or another. “Why do we have so many remakes?” It’s an easy answer, too, which makes how often I see the question so mind-boggling. It’s obvious, and it’s obvious in the way you […]

    I love the Halloween franchise. Its highs have been high and its lows have been low, but I’ve been there for all of it. I will readily admit that it’s an incredibly uneven franchise, maybe even more so than Friday the 13th. Halloween is one of the greatest horror movies ever made and none of the other entries in the series are necessarily at that level even if some of […]

  • Mike Flanagan Calls Ouija 2 ‘It’s Own Thing’, Hints at Possibility of Third Film

    Read More

    Director Mike Flanagan recently sat down to chat with Bloody Disgusting about his excellent home invasion film Hush, which is now streaming on Netflix. When the conversation turned to Ouija 2 (which he directed for Blumhouse, Platinum Dunes, and Hasbro) he assuaged some of of our skepticism and revealed that the sequel will actually be largely unrelated to the first installment. He also let on that a third film may be a possibility and […]

Five Reasons Green Room is a Must See!

Green Room

I can’t recall the last time a movie’s marketing campaign was as on point as that of Jeremy Saulnier’s hugely-anticipated Green Room. Believe the hype; this flick is incredible. And the posters, trailers and everything else you’ve seen and heard expertly capture its tense atmosphere, punk-rock stylings and gory. utterly unpredictable trajectory. As horror fans, we so often find ourselves disappointed by new releases because nothing ever seems to live […]

Review: Zoombies is an Action-Packed Thriller That Delights And Frightens In Equal Measure

Zoombies-Poster-212x300

Zoombies takes place in the Eden Wildlife Zoo, a facility that specializes in housing endangered animals. The outfit is headed by Dr. Ellen Rogers (Kim Nielsen) who inherited it from her grandfather. On a seemingly routine day at the zoo, chaos erupts as the closed biological system is infected by a zombie-like virus that quickly spreads between the animals and makes them hungry for human flesh. Zoombies is an enjoyable […]

Life Lessons I Learned from House II: The Second Story

House II

Movies can be great teaching tools. Most of my generation was raised on TV—which, now that I think about it, probably means that watching the OJ trial is how we developed our collective distrust of the legal system. Not every picture can teach great lessons, of course, but horror has proven surprisingly good at it. The genre has always had a fairly strong moral center, believe it or not. It’s not surprising, really, considering that the […]

Seven Surprisingly Good Remakes Nobody Saw

Review: High-Rise Crumbles Under The Weight Of Its Own Pretension

High-Rise film poster

Ben Wheatley’s track record is near-perfect. Of the Brit director’s four previous films, two (Kill List, A Field In England) are modern masterpieces while the others (Down Terrace, Sightseers) are a considerable cut above the rest–genre or otherwise. And now comes High-Rise, Wheatley’s first adaptation, and the first blip in an otherwise peerless filmography (hell, even his ABCs Of Death segment was good). He isn’t entirely to blame for failing […]

The Omen is Being Given the Prequel Treatment

The Omen directed by Richard Donner.

We have just learned that the 1976 shocker The Omen is getting a prequel after forty years. Antonio Campos (who directed Christine, the story of a ’70s television reporter, not to be confused with the John Carpenter classic) is currently in negotiations to helm, according to THR. Ben Jacoby penned the screenplay for the project.

Advance Review: Bite Is An Infectious Body Horror Film

bite-poster-e1447716745973-1024x1024

Bite begins in an unassuming and deceptive way; like an ignored insect bite that quickly becomes infected, the film surpasses a misleadingly bland opening sequence to become something that the audience can’t quite ignore. Initially presented in a formulaic found-footage style, the picture quickly grows into an interesting slice of body horror. The narrative is one that’s as concerned with the central character, her mind and relationships, as much as her transforming […]

Comic Review: Puppet Master #14

Puppet Master #14

Puppet Master has been a great comic in terms of character arcs and bringing back old, classic elements and characters from the franchise. It’s been excelling at that recently. But issue #14 works for slightly different reasons. This time, we’ve got an issue that goes for broke in terms of balls-to-the-wall insanity. And it works because the story has been setting this up from the beginning. Basically, this whole comic […]
