And they call Eli Roth callous?

The FINAL DESTINATION franchise - never the most noble series (the first is the only worthwhile film, just) - hits what is thus far its low point in the David R. Ellis-directed THE FINAL DESTINATION. Further proving that the 3D bandwagon is not one in which directors hop on for the purposes of good filmmaking, this redundant continuation of the ...

I realised I had gone through 90 minutes of horror without feeling any tension or fright.

On occasion, I do like to borrow a mindless movie about zombies/mutants who wreak death and destruction on the world, and I got exactly what I asked for – the mindless bit. The year is somewhere in the future, on some distant planet where a mysterious machine hidden beneath the earth is converting the dead and dying into killer zombies. Throw into...

For present-day horror movies, "Trick 'r Treat" is a shot in the arm.

It's with a palpable autumnal atmosphere, seamlessly interlocking screenwriting, superlative cinematography and a regular upending of expectations that Michael Dougherty's "Trick'r Treat," a Halloween-set horror anthology in the spirit of George A. Romero's classic "Creepshow," qualifies as the year's strongest horror movie. First and foremost, ...

Orphan

Genre: Horror

The year’s most laughably overwrought horror hit.

If you see only one movie in which Vera Farmiga plays the distressed mother of a creepy child, see JOSHUA. A diabolical little SOB with the mind of a little-league Hannibal Lecter, Joshua kicks the crap out of Esther, the precocious little twerp at the center of ORPHAN. Lacking the earlier film’s wit, style and psychological acuity, this is the year...

Genuinely unsettling and authentically unforgettable.

After years of going out of my way to avoid it, I finally got up the nerve to watch Takashi Miike’s infamous 1999 horror film, AUDITION. My excuses for not seeing it were a) life is too short, and b) it sounded like something that would give me post-traumatic stress disorder. I decided to take the plunge when Quentin Tarantino named it one of the 20...

An unoriginal but thoroughly refreshing horror.

"It's fucking nuts! I know that." Such is a line of dialogue spoken in Patrick Lussier's My Bloody Valentine revamp and such is a fitting description of the movie itself. Humorously fun in a way that the recent, piss-poor Friday the 13th retread can only ever hope to be, director Lussier's slasher throwback embraces drama-as-parody while diving ...

This year's authentic must-see horror.

The first legitimately frightening cinematic experience of the year, The Last House on the Left ditches the goofball comedy elements of its namesake predecessor while embracing that film's bleak viciousness. Following the same plot trajectory -- two teenage girls (Sara Paxton and Martha MacIsaac) come into contact with a gang of dirtbag criminals, ...

Martyrs is one part potential great, one part lumbering dud.

Martyrs begins with the same visceral punch of Alexandre Aja's Haute Tension only to eventually descend to the mediocre level of Hostel, crippled by convolutions and unnecessary over-explanation. What essentially begins as, and remains for the first 45 minutes, a nifty little horror exercise collapses the more writer-director Pascal Laugier ...

Everything that happens had a much greater impact in the original.

Don’t do drugs. Or else you’ll end up stabbed, raped and bleeding to death in the woods. That seems to be the message of The Last House on the Left, the slick new remake of Wes Craven’s shocking directorial debut. While horror movies of the ‘70s had a gnarly soul about them – Craven’s original was commenting on the orgy of violence America ...

It was pretty cool!!!!

After a huge disappointment we had with the apartment Frank, Joe and I decided to go see the new movie “Drag Me To Hell.” They had seen it before me but they were willing to see it again… they apparently liked it. Here is what I thought: For a Sam and Ivan Raimi flick, it was pretty cool!!!! I was very surprised to see that there were so many great...
