3.5/5 63% Bloodsucking Bastards (2015) "A mash-up of Office Space & Fright Night, BB takes some time to get going but when it does, the jokes fly almost as fast as the gore, resulting in a feel-good film that's a wonderful tribute to vampires & raucously deconstructs the modern workplace. " ‐ Daily Dead

3/5 17% Shocker (1989) "Like a frenzied fever dream fueled by the power of righteous heavy metal, Wes Craven's Shocker is certainly one of his more oddball cult classics, an amalgam of his most ambitious ideas & a viciously wild visual style. " ‐ Daily Dead

3/5 64% The Visit (2015) "The Visit is somewhat of a moderate success for Shyamalan; his methodology of storytelling here wasn't something I felt was necessary (going docu-style), but I dug his story, the characters & just how downright nasty it gets during the last 15 mins. " ‐ Daily Dead

5/5 85% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "A haunting and unsettling examination of identity, grief, family dynamics and how parents often struggle, Goodnight Mommy is one of those films where the less you know going in, the better, as the way the story unfolds is nothing short of masterful. " ‐ Daily Dead

3.5/5 33% Knock Knock (2015) "Unlike most of his previous films, Eli Roth subtly goes for the jugular with Knock Knock, building to a finale brimming with surreal tension and a wickedly dark sense of humor that left me both cringing and laughing. " ‐ Daily Dead
Posted Jan 6, 2016
3.5/5 31% Ghost Story (1981) "A film driven by atmosphere and a quiet sense of foreboding dread, Ghost Story is the hauntingly provocative adaptation of Peter Straub's novel that may be a tonal mess, but still has this weirdly hypnotic power to it after all these years. " ‐ Daily Dead
Posted Jan 6, 2016
4/5 44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "A tremendously intelligent and heartfelt example of how to properly balance bawdy humor and horror, Scouts Guide is the most fun I've had with a studio film in some time and proves there are still ways to make zombies interesting and enjoyable. " ‐ Daily Dead
Posted Jan 6, 2016
4.5/5 66% Krampus (2015) "A modern fable set during what's supposed to be the happiest time of the year, Michael Dougherty's Krampus is a wondrously twisted take on the Christmas season that confidently blends scares and good-hearted cheer, making for a new holiday classic. " ‐ Daily Dead
