Review: Midsommar

If I'm being perfectly honest with myself, I've been pretty disillusioned with the horror genre in recent months. I really do hate to be the kind of old man that groans "they don't make them like they used to" but I really do think that hor...

Check out the festivities in new Midsommar trailer

The latest trailer for Ari Aster's Midsommar gives us a decidedly tongue-in-cheek look at the coming festival of beauty and misery. There's such gorgeous color and symmetry here as revelers even sit at symbolically-placed tables to eat din...

She blinded me with violence in trailer for Blindsided

Pulling a reverse-Don't Breathe--a film which made me think being blind was supposed to morph you into a super-human killing machine that can track people by the smell of their shoes--we have Blindsided, a film where being blind is actuall...

Ready or Not red band trailer makes hide and seek deadly

Fox Searchlight is mostly known for their indie dramas and high brow fair, but it looks like they'll be delivering something a bit more horror centered with Ready or Not. As you can tell from the NSFW trailer above the film is a bloody thr...

A Quiet Place 2 looks to explore the monsters' origins

A Quiet Place is a super great movie that deserved all the praise and success it received last year. We even gave it our coveted Golden Cage for best horror movie! But such success always comes with a sinister caveat--sequels. It's been kno...

See Annabelle Comes Home early and free

Will there very be an end to the Conjuring cinematic universe? Who knows? They keep pumping them out and people keep showing up to them. Plus, they're made for so little that it's nearly impossible for them to flop. Plus, plus, they're most...

Fangboner trailer accidentally pees all over your face

I don't know how many people there are like me in the world (that I haven't tracked down and murdered by now), but if you happen to be anything like me then sometimes you sit down and think, "Man, I've watched too many good movies, lately....

Try not to explode in the vacuum of space in Assassinaut

A giant bloody eyeball darting around, embedded behind someone's intestines is the sort of image that always gets the attention of a critic with as refined a palate as my own. If you see the above trailer and find it to be too needlessly b...

Review: The Cleaning Lady

Every great horror story has a moral. Whether it's a simple theme like "don't go in the woods," or a slasher-style message of "don't have unprotected sex in the back of your dad's Buick," there's always some point to a scary story. Naturall...
