REview: Willow Creek (2013)

Found footage is a genre that every since The Blair Witch Project–though that was not the first. That honor likely belongs to The McPherson Tape–many have attempted, but few have done particularly well. Paranormal Activity was fine though prior entries in that series quickly wore out their welcome, which is one reason you should see […]

Harbinger Down – International Trailer

it’s taken filmmakers long enough to realize that ‘quality’ and ‘horror’ aren’t necessairly mutually exclusive terms, if movies like The Babadook and It Follows are any indication. Though it goes without saying that we’ll continue to get drek like Ouija (good idea, remarkably uninspired movie) and Paranormal Activity, but that’s okay as long as the good […]

Poltergeist (2015) – Official Trailer 2

Okay, the first thing that I’ll admit is that the ending of the new Poltergeist trailer creeped me out just a bit.  That being said, it revolves around a clown–similar to  the original film–and everyone knows that clowns by their very nature are a tad creepy (without even trying). I don’t fear them, though they do […]

Poltergeist (2015) – Trailer 1

Speak of the Devil, and he’ll come (or something to that effect) because the new Poltergeist trailer has dropped, and it’s a whole bunch of “Meh.” There’s a workman-like sheen to things, which may owe more to Paranormal Activity than the original movie, but if the trailer has shown me anything, it’s how unnecessary a remake it is. […]

‘Kingdom Come’ Trailer

I am jonsin‘ for a entertaining horror movie.  Recently two new ones from Blumhouse Pictures (The Conjuring, Insidious, Insidious 2, etc), Mercy and Mockingbird (review coming soon) turned up on Netflix, and to say that both were underwhelming would be an understatement. Though Blumhouse seems to be innovating in a genre all its own, which is hard […]

‘Devil’s Due’ Trailer

It looks like another movie is looking to capitalize on the formula made popular – and profitable – by “The Blair Witch Project” and the ‘Paranormal Activity’ films.  This time a woman has somehow been impregnated by Satan (I know how babies are traditionally made, though when you’re talking about the Prince of Darkness you […]

‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ Trailer

The ‘Paranormal Activity’ films – so far four and counting – took what is normally a pretty creepy idea (basically people forced into having to deal with malign, invisible entities) and ran the entire premise into the ground.  The films are in ‘found-footage’ style, which means people run about with cameras in situations where doing […]

‘Purge‘ Sequel Green-Lit

It should come to no surprise that Universal Pictures and Blumhouse (the production single of Jason Blum, who produced the ‘Paranormal Activity’ films as well) are preparing a sequel to “The Purge,” which has gone on scare up over $34 million at the North American box office. Foreign returns are significantly weaker, though coming in […]
