All Hallows Eve Movie Review
Written by Christopher Horton, Posted 239 Days Ago. | 25 Comments
“All Hallows Eve” is a rare animal. Ill get to the reasons why, in this review. But I do want to throw a disclaimer out there: Not everyone will think this film is awesome. The Film begins with a babysitter, watching two kids on Halloween night. The kids have been out trick or treating and [...]

The Seasoning House Movie Review
Written by Christopher Horton, Posted 239 Days Ago. | 12 Comments
Sometimes horror is full of monsters, zombies and vampires. The fact that these things are paranormal and come from a place that isn’t a part of a natural world, is what makes them scary. But sometimes a horror film doesn’t have anything paranormal, and the monsters are human. “The Seasoning House” is a deeply disturbing [...]

Written by Monster Mary, Posted 256 Days Ago. | 7 Comments
Have you ever wondered what happened to little Danny Torrence and his mother after the destruction of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining? Well, Stephen King has finally answered that question 35 years later for his fans with his latest novel, Doctor Sleep.  Doctor Sleep is the long awaited sequel to one of King’s most [...]

Skinwalker Ranch Movie Review
Written by Christopher Horton, Posted 258 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
“Skinwalker Ranch” is a film that is very loosely based on the actual place of the same name. The place is in Utah and is a supposed known area for paranormal activity.  Everything…literally…EVERYTHING has been reported here: Cattle mutilations Poltergeists Bigfoot Crop circles Glowing orbs Kardashian sightings Spontaneous STDs OK. Maybe I made the last [...]

Blood Punch (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 258 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
There is a tentative relationship between being smart and sharp and unique in storycrafting in indie horror films and just being too clever for your own good. Often, the promise of an interesting setup teeters and then collapses by the third act under the weight of too many good ideas and not enough smart, sound [...]

Static 2013 Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 258 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
With a central cast of Milo Ventimiglia (Kiss Of The Damned, Heroes, The Divide), Sarah Shahi (Chicago Fire, The Congress) and Sara Paxton (Innkeepers, Cheap Thrills, Shark Night, Last House On The Left), you might be immediately skeptical that Static is just a dud of a chiller with a ‘pretty people’ cast as the only [...]

The Green Inferno Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 260 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Before “The Green Inferno” made its LA debut at AFI Fest, director Eli Roth came on stage and asked us to clear our minds of any preconceived notions we might have had of the film.  The idea was to cleanse ourselves of any assumptions that might have been made in lieu of marketing or advertisement. I did [...]

Real Life Horror: The Sacrament (2013) Review
Written by Cineniche, Posted 262 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
On November 18th, 1978 over 900 people were murdered under the guidance of Jim Jones. 35 years later, director Ti West shows us a similar descent into the clutches of a cult. Jim Jones was an atheist and communist during a period of history in which his beliefs could have had him imprisoned or worse. [...]

Call of Duty Ghosts Extinction Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 262 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
You might be thinking: “Whoa, now. What’s this ‘Call of Duty Ghosts’ review doing on my favorite horror movie website?”  And I have a rational explanation for that.  Over the years the Call of Duty series has added a “zombie mode” to the game which allows players to band together and battle against hordes of zombies.  This mode has [...]

Review : The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 4 “Indifference”
Written by Zachariah O'Dell, Posted 267 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
We are now a quarter of the way through Season 4 of The Walking Dead. Tensions are high, danger is everywhere, and much remains unsolved. All of this has paid off with about 13-16 million viewers for each debut of the first 3 episodes. With the show’s massive audience, I’m sure they will spread the [...]

Fantasm (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 267 Days Ago. | No Comments
Many of you might remember the recent crowd-funding efforts by Director Kyle Kuchta to complete his documentary Fantasm about the world of horror conventions. Thankfully he was successful and screened it during the Housecore Horror Festival here in Austin. A project like this should feel like a labor of love – something that exists in [...]

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 4 Review
Written by Richard L. Haas III, Posted 267 Days Ago. | 16 Comments
With a new season renewed after just three episodes this season, AMC is apparently very confident in the rest of this season as well as the writers’ abilities to continue forward. This week we get more of an understanding that this is a concrete character study in the likeness of Lost and Breaking Bad. But [...]

Quite A Conundrum (2013) review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 267 Days Ago. | No Comments
Quite A Conundrum is a film that exists in many genres all at once. It is a deconstructionist horror film, a wrenching emotional drama, a gross-out subversive comedy and a critique of the fame-obsessed culture among twenty-somethings grasping at adult life from just beyond the velvet rope of stilted social-media-as-life shallowness. It is a balancing [...]

The Best Zombie Game Of All Time: State of Decay
Written by Herner Klenthur, Posted 268 Days Ago. | 20 Comments
I have been a die-hard fan of horror games going all the way back to the Commodore 64 days when I was in first grade and I still have fond memories of popping my floppy copy of Friday the 13th into my Commodore 64 and running around Crystal Lake absolutely terrified.  As far as great [...]

Go Goa Gone (2013) Horror Review
Written by Cineniche, Posted 269 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
I’ll admit we had certain reservations going into what has been labeled as the first zombie film from India, but within a few minutes we were hooked. At its core, directors Krishna D.K and Raj Nidimoru, have created a stoner buddy film, like Cheech and Chong, Pineapple Express, and Harold and Kumar’s adventures. We follow [...]

They Will Outlive Us All (2013) review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 269 Days Ago. | No Comments
There are few categorizing phrases that make many a genre/horror fan shutter more than ‘horror-comedy’ and ‘found footage.’ I had one of each of these on days two and three of the Housecore Horror Festival here in Austin but wanted to, as much as possible, walk in with an open mind about things and see [...]

Written by Richard L. Haas III, Posted 281 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
Last Sunday proved itself to be a glorious day in the life of zombie and television fans alike as the season four premiere became, according to Deadline, the highest rated episode of the series thus far. As the clock struck 10 pm ET, it didn’t take long for social media to explode. Within minutes, everyone [...]

Contracted (2013) Horror Movie Review
Written by Cineniche, Posted 282 Days Ago. | 16 Comments
Eric England, who is best known for Madison County (2011), has created in Contracted a great commentary on the fears of sexually transmitted diseases. The film opens with an unknown man, who we learn from the credits is Simon Barrett (writer of You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, Autoerotic, and segments of ABC’s Of [...]
