High rise demise in The Belko Experiment – review

“We are not going to entertain the option of killing people.” What do you get when you take the inter-office politics, romances and friendships of, well, The Office, and interject the violence, viciousness and horror of Battle Royale? You get the latest venture from Blumhouse Tilt and Orion Pictures (yes, Orion, home of Platoon, Robocop and Silence of the Lambs is back in ... Read More »

Kong still King – Skull Island – review

“The land where God didn’t finish creation.” One of the most iconic of screen legends is back and bigger and badder than ever. The one and only true king – the mighty ape known as Kong – has returned once again to enthrall and entertain moviegoers in what will eventually lead to the ultimate monster showdown. That’s something we’ll get to ...

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. But M. Night Shyamalan’s Split has been a bona-fide hit, and now, ... Read More »

Circle of Death returns in Rings – review

“She’s coming. There’s no stopping her.” Seven days. That’s all that stands between you and certain death at the hands of one ghastly, ghostly pissed off child. Yes, that waterlogged apparition is back and intent on killing anyone who dares to watch her video full of nightmarish, disturbing images in the third and latest chapter in the frightening film franchise of ...

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. Sounds like an alternate version of today’s current climate (environmental and political)? Or maybe the plot of the latest installment in the videogame/horror film franchise known as Resident Evil. Actress/model Milla Jovovich returns once again ... Read More »

A Unanimous Decision on Split – review

He’s coming for you….you’re not going to like it. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has shown us dead people, given us the origin of a superhero, and pitted characters against aliens, vengeful plants and depraved grandparents. Now, he’s taken on multiple personalities in his latest horror thriller, Split. For those who felt that M. Night may have lost his way a bit for awhile ... Read More »

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 »

Fear the Spheres! Phantasm: Ravager – review

“I can’t tell what’s real anymore, because of him.” The mortician from hell, the Tall Man, ice cream vendor turned soldier, Reggie, the beleaguered Mike, the pesky zombie dwarves and those shiny, metal, deadly spheres are all back for the ultimate battle for the future of mankind. Phantasm: Ravager, marks the fifth and final film in the wildly original horror franchise and ... Read More »

New Godzilla roars into theaters! – Shin Godzilla – review

Toho’s 29th entry in its long-running GODZILLA franchise, Shin Godzilla (also known as Godzilla Resurgence), is perhaps the most intellectually mature film in the series, easily matching the depth and power of the original Gojira from 1954. Already a colossal hit in Japan, here in the states it opened to special previews on October 3rd in Los Angeles and October ... Read More »
