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…

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…

Movie Review: Digging Up the Marrow (2014)

I had the opportunity to meet Adam Green almost exactly three years ago, at a screening of his horror/comedy sitcom “Holliston” at Emerson College in his native Massachusetts. What I appreciated about him the most — and what clearly shines through in all of his work that I have seen — was his unapologetic enthusiasm…

Movie Review: A Cry From Within (2014)

By far the best and most original aspect of A Cry From Within is the fact that it revolves around an extremely solid family. Advertising executive Cecile (Deborah Twiss, who wrote and directed the film and upon whose real life experiences it claims to be based), therapist Jonathan (Eric Roberts “The Expendables”), and their children…

Movie Review: Something Wicked (2014)

As the case itself boasts in a rather tasteless red banner across its top, Something Wicked was the last movie in which the late Brittany Murphy appeared. If this uncomfortably poor attempt at a cerebral horror film will be remembered for anything, it will be that. Well, that and the fact that Murphy probably deserved…
