The Messengers (2007)

"The Pang Brothers. I'm thinking Danny and Oxide should change their names to Hit and Miss. Why, you ask? Because that is the perfect description of their work."

Blood Mask (2007)

"It doesn't matter if a movie costs 300 million or only 300 dollars; good is good and bad is bad, and Bloodmask: The Possession of Nicole Lameroux is just plain bad."

Curse of the Zodiac (2007)

Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

"A beautifully horrific and touching movie from start to finish. The DVD complements it perfectly, and New Line should be thanked for giving it such a lavish treatment."

28 Weeks Later... (2007)

"28 Weeks Later is a bloodier, scarier, and arguably better film than the original. This is the very model of what a sequel should be."

The Invasion (2007)

"...buried deep within this mess, there are signs of a good movie struggling to get out...But, when all is said and done, the good aspects just go to show how bad this film was gutted." EDIT

The Thirst (2007)

"An abundance of tits and gore and humor and vampires going up in flames, just not a lot of skillful plot mechanics or proficiency behind the scenes."

Creepshow III (2006)

Fido (2007)

"Fido is just a damn smart film, whether you want to classify it as a horror or a comedy or a horror/comedy or a zomcom; it just works on almost every level."

Black Sheep (2006)

"A good, midnight movie crowd is best, but something tells me even the most jaded common moviegoer will have something to scream about in Black Sheep."

The Invisible (2007)

"Sadly, it employs every cliche thrown around about PG-13 horror and invents a few new ones as well. You want to talk about angsty teens who mope around and follow the much maligned Hot Topic formula for success in horror films? Look no further."

Dark Corners (2006)

The Hitcher (2007)

The Condemned (2007)

The Mad (2007)

"The acting (Zane is really in top comedy form here), the cinematography, the gore; it's all top-notch. Hell, even the music is appropriate. It's just too bad it couldn't have gotten one more pass in the editing bay before it was completed."

Vacancy (2007)

Disturbia (2007)

"Disturbia proves a PG-13 film that steers clear of gruesome effects and in-your-face violence can still be interesting and enjoyable ... Caruso is back on my A list."

Masters of Horror - Rob Schmidt: Right to Die (2007)

Masters of Horror - John Landis: Family (2007)

Severance (2006)

"The final act should satisfy even the most die-hard gorehound, but the film never dumbs it down or takes its audience for granted. Smart and sharp every step of the way."

Cinderella (2006)

Hatchet (2006)

End of the Line (2006)
