Fantasia 2014: The Drownsman Film Festival

Fantasia 2014: The Drownsman

The Drownsman stars Michelle Mylett as Madison, a young woman we know absolutely nothing about. Madison’s best friend Hannah (Caroline Korycki) just got engaged, and after accepting Hannah’s request to be maid of honour, Madison nearly drowns in an accident. Madison had a vision of a hulking, demonic-looking person locking her in a basement while Read More

‘The Conjuring’ Spinoff ‘Annabelle’ Set for October Release

It appears the weekend of October 3rd is going to be quite creepy this year. If the psychological suspense of David Fincher’s Gone Girl isn’t your style, (check out the new trailer released today), then a feature-length film starring the creepiest doll we’ve ever seen (sorry Chucky) should sufficiently freak you out. Warner Bros and New Read More
Deliver Us From Evil Movie

Deliver Us From Evil

The Bronx is turned into a funhouse of jump scares and buddy cop banter in Deliver Us From Evil, a loose adaptation of Beware the Night by Ralph Sarchie, a former NYPD detective who left the force to enter the creepy world of demonology. Fans of the exorcism subgenre of horror will no doubt get what they came for in the film’s conclusion, one of Read More
Willow Creek Movie

Willow Creek

Bobcat Goldthwait makes a disappointing turn toward the cliché in Willow Creek, a noticeable departure for the comedian/filmmaker. This time Goldthwait has gone from dark comedy to horror, or more specifically the found footage subgenre dominating the genre nowadays. This time our unlucky characters bound to leave nothing but their camera behind are Jim (Bryce Read More
Cold in July Movie

Cold in July

In Jim Mickle’s chameleonic noir thriller Cold in July, an adaptation of the cult novel by Joe R. Lansdale, Michael C. Hall takes perhaps the most drastic departure in his career, playing Richard Dane, a timid, unremarkable picture frame store owner who accidentally shoots a burglar in his small-town Texas home in the film’s wonderfully edited, punchy Read More
The Sacrament Movie

The Sacrament

I’m a horror aficionado. I have watched everything from Melie’s Le Manoir du Diable, Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and other early film depictions of the spectacular and creepy, to today’s special effects riddled gross-out filled shock-fests. My final thesis in film school focused on horror films and it’s easily my favorite genre. While it’s been fun Read More
Oculus Movie


Don't be fooled by Paranormal Activity and Insidious getting mentioned in the marketing for Oculus. While those films (or, more specifically, their franchises) are about big jolts and loud noises, Oculus surprisingly goes for a more subdued and unsettling approach. Mike Flanagan, the director of Absentia, returns with a feature length adaptation of his short Read More
Cheap Thrills Movie

Cheap Thrills

Like an alternative, bite-size version of Breaking Bad, first-time director E.L. Katz’s gruesome comedy Cheap Thrills takes an unassuming suburban family man named Craig (Pat Healy) and exposes a repressed, dark side of his psyche via the sinful temptation of money. What begins as an quick drink between old friends at a bar evolves into a horrific freak Read More
In Fear Movie

In Fear

The inevitable problem that comes with a great set-up is that, at some point, questions have to be answered. Jeremy Lovering's In Fear is, as the title suggests, focused on what people do when they're overcome with fear. Lovering expertly handles building up dread and intensity in his film's first half, only do undo most Read More
