Don’t wait to see Get Out – review

We’re only two months into 2017 and horror is already having a standout year on the big screen, both critically and at the box office. While installments from the Underworld, Resident Evil and The Ring franchises underperformed  (though Resident Evil: The Final Chapter did terrific worldwide), they were worthy sequels.

Alice’s adventures end in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – review

“You’re all going to die down here.” The entire world has gone to hell, and only a strong, determined and very special woman has the ability to save it.

Heroism and Hope amidst Horrors of War – Hacksaw Ridge -review

“While everybody else is taking life, I’m gonna be saving it.” The zombie apocalypse, a haunted house, the bowels of Hell, a Trump presidency – all very frightening scenarios that make, or could make, for some scary horror films. While hopefully no one will ever have to experience any of those things, in the real world, there is nothing more terrifying than the ... Read More »
