4.5/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Forget all about Cloverfield and just soak in the immense claustrophobia and paranoia that's so unrelenting you'll have to dig your nails out of the theater's armrests. ‐ Bloody Disgusting

90% Emelie (2016) Emelie isn't doing anything we haven't seen before, but it proves that a solid screenplay and director, as well as dead-on casting can produce a gem of a movie that is more than worthy of a viewing on your Friday or Saturday night. ‐ Bloody Disgusting

2.5/5 31% 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 75% 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 48% Wolf Creek 2 (2014) 'Wolf Creek 2' is an insanely fun, yet dirty, grimy and vicious slasher massacre. ‐ Bloody Disgusting

Posted Jun 12, 2013
3.5/5 67% 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 37% 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 41% Dark Skies (2013) Stewart is too focused on a sequel, instead of nurturing his first baby that needs love and attention. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
Posted Feb 22, 2013
3.5/5 80% Warm Bodies (2013) 'Warm Bodies' is beautifully shot, features relatable characters, and a carries a romance that the viewer may actually connect with. ‐ Bloody Disgusting

Posted Jan 27, 2013
2.5/5 65% Mama (2013) 'Mama' is horror film loaded with great ideas and multiple scares, but it's deflated by horrendous CGI and ridiculous exposition. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
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 49% 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 11% 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
4.5/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) I don't think Burton has ever connected with his audience like this... ['Frankenweenie'] is overflowing with passion, creativity and genuine heart. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
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 35% 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 64% 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
1.5/5 49% No One Lives (2013) 'No One Lives' is generic "shock" cinema that was a result of 'Hostel,' which is why it feels like it sets horror back 10 years. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012
3.5/5 39% 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
1.5/5 84% Berberian Sound Studio (2013) While beautifully crafted, it's impossible to recommend this to anyone who hopes to have an entertaining movie-going experience. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
Posted Sep 11, 2012
2/5 44% 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 21, 2012
4/5 72% Prometheus (2012) 'Prometheus' is a visually striking sci-fi epic that delivers an incredible sense of awe mixed with breathtaking visual effects. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
Posted Jun 1, 2012
3/5 14% 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
