Doctor Sleep (2019) | Final Trailer

I didn’t see IT: Chapter 2 in theaters this weekend because I saw IT: Chapter 1 and was thoroughly underwhelmed. Doctor Sleep, like IT, is a Stephen King adaptation so I’m hoping that it’s worthwhile to see in theaters. What it has in it’s favor is that it’s directed by Mike Flanagan (The Haunting Of […]

The Haunting of Hill House – Teaser Promo

I LOVE this teaser. It’s genuinely more creepy than some entire movies (which shouldn’t be a surprise considering the movie–and I assume this teaser–was directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil) because it’s all about projecting a haunting, vaguely sinister atmosphere. Proof that what you don’t see can be as scary as […]

Gerald’s Game – Review

Gerald’s Game, currently on Netflix is a remarkable bit of television because it understands that horror is more than things that go ‘bump’ in the night, but is also a way of working through the most evil of demons, namely those that haunt us in our everyday, waking lives. And imagine to my surprise to […]

Not-So Fair Use

I was originally going to write a post revolving around the fate of Mike Flanagan’s (Oculus, Hush, Oujia: Origin of Evil) Before I Wake, which was caught up in the failure of Relativity when I found this link on YouTube: Apparently, when Relativity was solvent rights to the movie were sold for release in other territories, […]

‘Deliver Us From Evil’ Exclusive Trailer

Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil definitely looks like a movie to watch for. Lately everything seems so massive that every once in awhile I really welcome something on a smaller scale (though not too small.  Oculus was entertaining, but almost intimate.  And don’t get me wrong, I am not critizing spectacle, after all it’s a golden […]

‘Blood Glacier’ Trailer

I have to admit that I have been jonsing for a really entertaining horror movie for awhile, and have yet to scratch what’s been a particularly irksome itch.  I saw “Oculus” a few weeks ago; good movie, though barely an appetizer.  I need something really ambitious, something primarily practical–minimal CGI–and so creepy in the atmosphere department that […]

‘Oculus: Chapter 3 – The Man With The Plan’ Trailer

Before Mike Flanagan wrote and directed “Oculus’ there was his award-winning short “Oculus: Chapter 3 – The Man With The Plan.”   Despite being the third chapter, far as I know there were no prior editions.  I have been looking for a link to the actual short, but I have yet to find it.  As soon as I do, […]
