Movie Review: Poltergeist (2015)

Lack of originality is a major lament of many horror fans in 2015; we devour each and every new film that’s tossed our way, hoping against hope that THIS will be the horror movie that breaks the trend, that THIS will be the one that reminds us what it was like to be really creeped…

Movie Review: Der Samurai (2014)

In a small village in Germany, a wolf lurks in the night, searching for food in neighborhood garbage cans, attacking pets, and generally terrorizing those who live there.

Movie Review: Unfriended (2014)

Unfriended is the kind of movie that I already can’t wait to watch again in ten years. Better yet–I’d love to watch teenagers ten years from now watch it and see if it makes any sense to them. This is to say, Unfriended is a movie that is violently in the moment, a unique and…

Judas Ghost (2013) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Judas Ghost (2013)

Judas Ghost, an indie British horror/fantasy inspired by Simon R. Green’s “Ghost Finders” series, feels more like a sequel than a standalone piece. This is to say, while watching it, one feels like what they are seeing would make far more sense — and have far higher stakes — if significantly more background information had…

Movie Review: Jonah Lives (2012)

In 1973’s “The Exorcist,” 1986’s “Witchboard” and 2014’s “Ouija” (among others), we learned that playing with a Ouija board can expose you to some really dangerous spirits. In countless other films (horror or otherwise), we learned that bored teenagers conjure up some pretty bad ideas to create excitement in their lives. In 2012’s new-to-DVD horror…

It Follows (2014) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: It Follows (2014)

The second film from “The Myth of the American Sleepover” writer/director David Robert Mitchell, It Follows is the deservedly most anticipated horror flick of this spring. Teeming with eerie, ethereal synth music, dark psycho-sexual themes, and references to 1980s horror classics amid a dreary, timeless Detroit landscape, It Follows is a refreshingly subtle, practically gore-less…

Movie Trailer: Poltergeist (2015)

As a parent I thought it was common knowledge that at NO times are questionable dolls, figurines, puppets, action figures (or any vessel that loosely represents a body that a malevolent spirit could wish to inhabit) allowed in the house. You shouldn’t live in a house built upon a graveyard either. The Bowen family screwed…
