The Possession Of Hannah Grace –Trailer

Lately I’ve been a little leery of Screen Gems (while they did release John Carpenter’s Ghosts Of Mars–an underrated movie) because they released the horror (in a bad way) that are, for the most part, the Resident Evil movies and more recently, Slender Man. The latter being very, very ‘Meh.’ Though I have to admit […]

The Haunting Of Hill House – Review

I’ve said it before and I’ll reiterate it here:  Mike Flanagan is literally the best director working in horror today. James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring franchise), Andy Mucheletti (Mama, IT)…they’re okay but don’t hold a candle to Flanagan.

The Haunting of Hill House – Official Trailer

Few things bother me more than the way the term ‘Lovecraftian’ is bandied about because more often than not I get the feeling that those that do so have never read anything by H.P. Lovecraft in their lives. And sure, most of the time the short stories and novels revolve around things that go bump […]
