‘F’ This! – The Most Hated Films in Horror

Recently Darren Aronofsky’s mother! was slapped with an extremely rare “F” CinemaScore from audiences. Despite the film’s initial marketing, mother! is anything but a typical Satanic Panic/hysterical woman thriller. Granted, those familiar with Aronofsky’s work should have been fully aware of what they were getting themselves into as they entered the theater. Nonetheless, it appears “general audiences” … [Read more...]

‘IT: Chapter Two’ – What We Can Expect

As you undoubtedly know by this point, the newest adaptation of Stephen King’s IT has blown through the box office this past weekend and Pennywise the Dancing Clown has shimmied all over the records books. With over $200 million dollars worldwide in less than one week, IT is a huge deal for the horror genre! As the closing credits titles revealed IT: Chapter One, it’s more than plainly obvious to expect Chapter Two sooner rather than … [Read more...]

Two Underrated Dario Argento Films Worth a Second Look

For us horror fanatics, we make it a point to seek out every single movie listed on our favorite director’s IMDb page. Sometimes, we don’t like what we see. Whether it’s John Carpenter’s Ghost of Mars or Wes Craven’s Deadly Friend (minus awesome “basketball to the head” death) – sometimes we’d just rather forget these titles littered our Masters’ filmographies. Well, distance makes the … [Read more...]

Remembering Tobe Hooper: The Cannon Years

It’s difficult to deal with the loss of our Masters. The passing of Romero was a massive gut punch, and now here we are again. Only a little over a month later, Tobe Hooper has passed away at the age of 74. It’s safe to say without his first feature, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the shape of American horror would not appear the same it does today. That original low budget slice of sun drenched terror has been massively influential to … [Read more...]

The Best Horror Movies of 2017 So Far!

Overall, we’ve enjoyed a pretty great year in horror so far. There are a number of indie breakouts to be excited about. On the wide release front, things have certainly been hit or miss. Even a couple standouts that I genuinely enjoyed suffered from serious issues.

40 Years Later and ‘The Hills Still Have Eyes’

40 years ago today, Wes Craven unleashed his follow-up to the grim and nasty Last House on the Left with the equally grim and nasty The Hills Have Eyes. Hesitant to dive into another exploitation flick, Craven eventually came around to persistent urgings from the film’s producer, Peter Locke. And as if Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was nothing more than a dare, Craven crafted Hills with a similar hysterical energy, upping … [Read more...]
