2.5/5 —— Extraterrestrial (2014) " [It doesn't] further the alien sub-genre, which as far as I'm concerned, is dead." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Apr 21, 2014
4/5 —— The Canal (2014) " It's surprisingly dark and scary. It relies heavily on the atmosphere to create suspense, and the constant bizarre imagery and tremendous sound design help deliver in spades." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Apr 20, 2014
4/5 49% Wolf Creek 2 (2014) " 'Wolf Creek 2' is an insanely fun, yet dirty, grimy and vicious slasher massacre." — Bloody Disgusting

4/5 80% Curse of Chucky (2013) " 'Curse of Chucky' [is] alarmingly good...Chucky fans should rejoice as [it] is clearly going to re-ignite the franchise for years to come. Chucky has never looked better..." — Bloody Disgusting

Posted Jun 12, 2013
3.5/5 68% World War Z (2013) " Horror fans should expect a mindless popcorn muncher jam-packed with incredible set pieces." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Jun 7, 2013
4.5/5 83% This Is the End (2013) " Rogen and Goldberg stunned me with their understanding of the horror genre, the beats, and how to scare the audience. It's an insanely competent horror comedy..." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted May 31, 2013
5/10 38% The Purge (2013) " In the end, 'The Purge' has a plethora of brilliant ideas that are all underdeveloped. And with that comes an insanely unfocused, diluted and generic thriller that carries zero impact." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted May 23, 2013
2/5 39% Dark Skies (2013) " Stewart is too focused on a sequel, instead of nurturing his first baby that needs love and attention." — Bloody Disgusting

Posted Jan 27, 2013

Posted Jan 16, 2013
2.5/5 19% Texas Chainsaw (2013) " This is the inherent problem with 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' [is that] not only is it not brutal, it's not fun either." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Jan 7, 2013
4.5/5 48% Maniac (2013) " 'Maniac' goes from 0-60 in the blink of an eye as it opens with a shocking kill that will have horror fans salivating for more...It's not for the faint of heart." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Oct 26, 2012
2/5 24% Paranormal Activity 4 (2012) " 'Paranormal Activity 4' is such dribble. It's trite and cliche to its own fault, a lazy and cheap replica of a 'Paranormal Activity' movie. " — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Oct 17, 2012
1.5/5 18% Smiley (2012) " The turgid, unnecessary and deeply stupid complexity of 'Smiley' will leave audiences frowning." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Oct 9, 2012
1.5/5 10% House at the End of the Street (2012) " While its not bad-bad, it's just so poorly conceived that it should have premiered on Lifetime...It very well may be the most generic horror film ever made." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 21, 2012

Posted Sep 20, 2012
3/5 31% Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) " As far as a Paul W.S. Anderson 'Resident Evil' goes, ['Retribution' is] a mind-melting popcorn film gelled with insane amounts of action-packed eye-candy." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 14, 2012
5/10 36% The ABCs of Death (2013) " Even through the film's best shorts the project just felt overtly long and fragmented...while some of the shorts warranted a perfect score, others deserved much less." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 13, 2012
3/5 53% Come Out And Play (2013) " If anything, 'Come Out and Play' is generic to the core, a cut and paste horror thriller that still manages to deliver on both production value and intensity." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012
3.5/5 65% Antiviral (2013) " The expectations may have been unfairly high, yet [Cronenberg] surpasses them by delivering a deep, engaging, and beautifully shot art house horror film." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012
3/5 45% Hotel Transylvania (2012) " 'Hotel Transylvania' caters to the MTV generation's lack of attention, and blitzes through the gates without a breath. " — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012

Posted Sep 11, 2012
3.5/5 41% Here Comes the Devil (2013) " There are intense sexual situations, coming-of-age themes, insane supernatural jolts, and gory moments; it's got a little bit of everything for the hardcore horror nut." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012

Posted Sep 11, 2012
2/5 45% The Lords of Salem (2013) " 'The Lords of Salem' could only be recommended as background visuals as your jamming to old school White Zombie." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012
4/5 78% Dredd (2012) " 'Dredd' is a cinematic experience [with] blissful, off-the-wall violence that only Lionsgate has the balls to deliver." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Aug 30, 2012
2/5 3% The Apparition (2012) " 'Apparition' is unfocused and overdeveloped. [It's] bogged down with heavy exposition, lack of rules, and a lackluster performance from Sebastian Stan." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Aug 24, 2012
2.5/5 87% ParaNorman (2012) " [While ParaNorman] takes stop-motion animation to an entirely new level...on [the] surface [it's] a beautiful piece of work that's [actually] rotten at its core." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Aug 3, 2012
3/5 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) " While the character development & screenplay are a complete mess, ALVH, at times, is an incredibly interesting movie [with] some brilliant CGI work & incredible choreography.." — Bloody Disgusting

Posted Jun 1, 2012
3/5 13% Piranha 3DD (2012) " It delivers just enough to make the hardcore horror hounds happy. It's worth taking a dip in this pool - while there's not much bite, there's still plenty of fun to be had." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted May 30, 2012
4/5 41% Lovely Molly (2012) " Sanchez shows tremendous restraint in keeping it simple and in the end, rewards the audience with a haunting little film that's ultimately timeless." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Apr 10, 2012
5/10 63% Sinister (2012) " 'Sinister' is so incredibly stupid. But it IS SCARY. The best way to describe it is '8MM' meets 'Paranormal Activity.'" — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Mar 11, 2012
4/5 92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) " The strength of 'Cabin' comes in the playful nature of the screenplay. Goddard and Whedon play everything tongue and cheek in a completely meta atmosphere." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Mar 10, 2012
5/10 66% The Woman in Black (2012) " "What's most troubling is James Watkins' inability to craft a "real" scare...there are two should-be terrifying moments that fall completely flat on its face."" — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Feb 1, 2012
4/5 68% Paranormal Activity 3 (2011) " Joost & Schulman inject the mythology with life, jam-packing it with heart-exploding scares...tension, and more importantly, payoffs." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Oct 14, 2011
2/5 35% The Thing (2011) " Everything that was great about the 1982 version is ignored in this 2011 crap that's nothing more than a boring CGI promo-reel." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Oct 12, 2011
2/5 6% Dream House (2011) " 'Dream House' is another one of those slow-stepping snoozers that forgets scares, suspense, drama and pacing." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 30, 2011
3.5/5 30% The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) " Six's flick is an over-the-top and in-your-face splatterfest that spends an hour and half making one bold statement: Centipede 2 isn't real life; it's just a movie. " — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 23, 2011
1/5 29% Twixt (2013) " 'Twixt' a bland, cheesy, poorly shot snoozer that's not even fun as a midnight movie. " — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 14, 2011

2/5 10% Trespass (2011) " 'Trespass' is a pointless movie that does nothing to further the home invasion subgenre." — Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 13, 2011
3.5/5 88% Livide (Livid) " 'Livid's true gift is its creative madness, a film that's drenched in imagery that will resonate with viewers for decades." — Bloody Disgusting
