The MEG – Trailer #1

A trailer just dropped for The MEG, a movie about a megalodon going around doing what sharks do in movies, which is eating humans (despite the fact that we’re by no means a normal part of their diet). Though I have other problems with this trailer.  First off, the book this movie is based on […]

The (Un)necessary Remake Dept – Tourist Trap

David Schmoeller’s 1979 movie Tourist Trap is a particularly effective horror movie–particularly due to the score by Charles Band, speaking of whom doesn’t get nearly enough credit for his composing, which here is at times playful, harrowing and cinematic–that unfortunately is showing its age. The movie revolves around a tourist attraction, Slaussens Lost Oasis, where Mr. Slaussen […]

Goodnight Mommy – Trailer

For awhile France was the place to go for innovative horror (and where directors like Alexandre Aja and Xavier Gens hail), now it seems that there’s been a shift to Australia.  Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead is currently on Netflix, and it’s pretty clever–in terms of where it takes zombie horror, not so much in terms of visuals. And […]

Horns – Review

Alexandre Aja is one of the most consistently interesting horror directors working today.  His Maniac remake–which he wrote with his writing partner, Grégory Levasseur–was excellent, and the work he did direct, such as High Tension (a fascinating movie that irritates the Hell out of me–in an Usual Suspects kind of way.  It’s a long story), The Hills Have Eyes […]

‘The Pyramid’ Trailer

The found footage horror movie, The Pyramid, makes a point of mentioning that it’s produced by Alexandre Aja, the director of the reboot of The Hills Have Eyes (possibly the most ‘wholesome’ horror film I have ever seen), Mirrors and High Tension, among others.  What it doesn’t tell you is that it’s directed by Grégory Lavasseur, who’s Aja’s writing […]

‘Horns’ Teaser Trailer

I don’t get this movie.  There’s a small town, heinous crimes involving young women and someone played by Daniel Radcliffe growing horns.  Horns was written by Joe Hill, who happens to be the son of Stephen King.  He’s probably not as prolific as his dad (which means that he’ll produce a full-length novel only every other week). What’s in the […]
