Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 84% Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2011) It's still one of the best horror-comedies in ages, and these characters could easily launch a series worthy of Abbott & Costello. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Sep 4, 2011
3/5 No Score Yet Children Of The Corn: Genesis (2011) While it isn't anything spectacular, Genesis is one of those low-budget movies you could come across on late night television and easily kill a guiltless 80 minutes with. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 10, 2011
2.5/5 8% Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (2011) It's no surprise that Dylan Dog is being billed as a comedy in the U.S., since that is the one element that works. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 10, 2011
3.5/5 68% Rubber (2011) Director Dupieux makes the most of his low budget with a wicked eye for the camera, and expertly timed gags, FX and performances make Rubber more art-house than Troma. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 10, 2011
2.5/5 20% The Rite (2011) It's derivative as hell, but the first half of The Rite still manages to be fairly interesting because it takes noticeable steps to differentiate itself from The Exorcist. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 10, 2011
4/5 58% Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011) Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is an expertly paced Gothic chiller that rises above most big-screen studio features thanks to the skill and enthusiasm of its crew and cast. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jul 1, 2011
3/5 59% Scream 4 (2011) Thankfully, the return of not only [Wes] Craven but original screenwriter Kevin Williamson and the surviving cast elevates this one beyond the typical cash-in sequel. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Apr 12, 2011
3.5/5 9% Saw 3D (2010) It ain't high art, but you know what you're getting and you get what you pay for; the kind of hoot-and-holler entertainment best enjoyed with a flask and a whole group of buddies. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 28, 2010
4/5 74% Splice (2010) Twisted, perverse, and thought-provoking, Splice is a refreshing change of pace from the bottom of the barrel, teen BS that has been repeatedly shoved down our throats ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jun 4, 2010
4/5 74% I Sell the Dead (2008) A refreshingly original slice of indie quirk that manages to pull off the kitchen sink approach on a very meager budget. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jun 29, 2009
4.5/5 73% The Children (2008) This is a rare film that strikes a perfect chord between subtle and visceral scares, between the primal and the nightmarish, between surreal and survival horror...Tom Shankland delivers the most white-knuckled experience yet with The Children. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Nov 28, 2008
5/5 82% Trick 'r Treat (2007) Trick 'r Treat is the film that horror fans have been waiting for - the antidote to every insipid remake, sequel and over hyped "holy grail" we've had to suffer through in recent years. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 14, 2008
1.5/5 43% Death Race (2008) Bigger, louder and stupider with far less entertainment value. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 21, 2008
4.5/5 35% Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) Repo! The Genetic Opera is the real deal: a fiercely original sideshow freak-out of killer tunes and bloody mayhem unlike anything you've ever seen! ‐ Dread Central
Posted Apr 9, 2008
2/5 22% The Eye (2008) Dull, clichéd, and silly, this is yet another watered-down slice of horror cinema that will score big with teenage girls under the age of fifteen. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 31, 2008
4/5 77% Cloverfield (2008) It delivers on its simple promise of wild thrills and wanton destruction. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 16, 2008
4/5 40% The Bucket List (2007) It delivers on its simple promise of wild thrills and wanton destruction. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 16, 2008
2/5 12% Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2) (2007) Direction consists of visuals that are dark and moody, but lack any genuine atmosphere. While the emphasis on old school prosthetics over CGI is welcome, it's all still one big technical exercise. The Brothers capture the look of Alien and Predator movies ‐ Dread Central
Posted Dec 24, 2007
4/5 79% Teeth (2007) A film like Teeth could've easily been a one-joke Troma movie or a hollow feminist tirade, but it wisely takes the high road as a quirky indie shocker and will have both sexes guarding their genitals from beginning to end. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Dec 23, 2007
3/5 70% I Am Legend (2007) It's a film that wants to have it both ways - as an unconventional horror movie and a mainstream crowd-pleaser. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Dec 12, 2007
4/5 90% [Rec] (2007) ...this experience feels like being trapped in a haunted maze and there are images here that are the stuff of nightmares. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Nov 8, 2007
3.5/5 17% Saw IV (2007) Saw IV is a perfectly serviceable sequel to a series that, for all intents and purposes, should've gone to outer space by now. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 26, 2007
4.5/5 62% Diary of the Dead (2007) Diary is an uncompromised return to the indie roots that made this series great. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 15, 2007
2/5 25% Halloween (2007) If it was Rob Zombie's intention to put us inside the head of Michael Myers, then he absolutely succeeded, because from beginning to end, I felt absolutely nothing. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 30, 2007
1.5/5 9% Captivity (2007) Those praying for the death of torture-porn can finally rejoice: Captivity not only hammers the final nail, it also buries the casket and pisses on the soil. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jul 12, 2007
4/5 79% 1408 (2007) 1408 stands as one of the better King adaptations under the sun - even going so far as to surpass the source material. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jun 16, 2007
70% 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. ‐ Dread Central
Posted May 10, 2007
2/5 15% The Condemned (2007) This is one train-wreck that's good for some unintentional laughs and best viewed with a lot of booze. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Apr 26, 2007
4/5 83% Grindhouse (2007) ...moves like a nitro-fueled bus of flaming nuns at the Indy 500! ‐ Dread Central
Posted Mar 30, 2007
1.5/5 No Score Yet Dead Mary (2006) I've watched Dead Mary and can't unwatch it. It may be a labor of love and a technically competent film, but it doesn't numb the anger coursing through my soul. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Feb 12, 2007
1.5/5 21% The Hitcher (2007) Their highest ambition is making teenage girls jump out of their chairs. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 19, 2007
3.5/5 72% Inland Empire (2006) It's arguably the filmmaker's most flawed work (at least since Dune), but it remains an oddly-shaped diamond in his offbeat career. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 1, 2007
4/5 86% Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak on a Plane (Plane Dead) (2007) Plane Dead is pure midnight movie bliss; a rock-em-sock-em zombie shooting gallery that more than meets its quota for mindless mayhem. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Dec 20, 2006
2.5/5 16% Turistas (Paradise Lost) (2006) Director John Stockwell takes a thin concept and executes it with a certain level of maturity and skill, not to mention a gorgeous visual touch. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Nov 29, 2006
4.5/5 61% Bug (2006) Bug not only marks a return to form, it's also Friedkin's best film since The Exorcist. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Nov 21, 2006
1.5/5 No Score Yet Night of the Living Dead (2006) Failing as both a homage and a gimmick, Night of the Living Dead 3D only succeeds in taking us to new dimensions of boredom. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Nov 12, 2006
3.5/5 No Score Yet The Red Shoes (Bunhong Shin) (2005) The Red Shoes is actually a film that takes this rather hokey premise and spins it into a rather classy psychological horror tale. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Nov 6, 2006
3.5/5 28% Saw III (2006) Saw III is easily the best in the series. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 27, 2006
2.5/5 10% The Grudge 2 (2006) The Grudge 2 feels like a worn out race-horse; a collision between East and West that never fully materializes. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 14, 2006
4.5/5 12% The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) Dark, savage, and nihilistic, this is the kind of ride that leaves you shaken and emotionally drained ‐ Dread Central
Posted Sep 27, 2006
2/5 32% The Black Dahlia (2006) It almost feels like an entire season of television edited down to a feature length film. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Sep 15, 2006
4/5 57% Feast (2006) ...they definitely have a cult hit and a possible franchise on their hands. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Sep 14, 2006
4/5 74% Monster House (2006) Monster House is the Real McCoy - a clever combo of wit and eye candy that will entertain all ages. Give it a chance. It'll surprise you. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jul 13, 2006
4/5 68% Hard Candy (2006) Slade & Co. have crafted an intense, thought-provoking experience, the kind of film that has the ability to provoke hours of intense discussion among its viewers. ‐ Dread Central
Posted May 6, 2006
3/5 No Score Yet Hatchet (1990) Eighties slasher fans will be in their gore-soaked heaven. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Apr 8, 2006
1.5/5 No Score Yet Death Tunnel (2005) Devoid of all structure, pacing, and narrative sense, Death Tunnel is a film that almost feels surreal in its badness. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Mar 1, 2006
3.5/5 43% Final Destination 3 (2006) A fun time-killer that's best viewed in an auditorium full of screaming fans. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Feb 1, 2006
4.5/5 53% Wolf Creek (2005) Most indie breakouts never live up to the hype - but Wolf Creek definitely comes out ahead of the pack. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 26, 2006
3.5/5 No Score Yet Yogen (Premonition) (2004) Premonition is a great example of the mature, slow-burn approach that has made international horror so popular over the years. ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 26, 2006
3/5 42% One Missed Call (2003) One Missed Call is an entertaining love letter to J-horror that delivers on the scary goods and will have many staring nervously at their cell phones for years to come. ‐ Dread Central
