60% The Lodgers (2017) The Lodgers is an almost pornographically Gothic movie. If you adore this sort of stuff -- and I most certainly do -- you'll eat every inch of it.‐

76% The Limehouse Golem (2017) For those of us whose hearts skip beats at seeing good actors dressed in finery and speaking such eloquent prose (Jane Goldman's script is incredibly articulate), this is a must see.‐

8/10 36% Jackals (2017) Saw VI director Kevin Greutert's lean, mean and rough horror movie Jackals is a dirty little gem.‐

No Score Yet Peelers (2017) Peelers is a fun, innovative, hot and bloody bit of mayhem, professionally made with flair. Here's hoping Schelenz and DeVita team up for more stuff.‐

7/10 18% Wish Upon (2017) Teen-oriented thriller is a serviceable and well-produced slice of supernatural horror.‐

8/10 78% Killing Ground (2017) Ruthless Australian horror movie is a tight, taut and well-directed tread on familiar turf.‐

9/10 78% The Beguiled (2017) Sofia Coppola's elegant and slow-burning remake is erotic and expertly performed by its talented cast.‐

7/10 43% The Bad Batch (2017) Director Ana Lily Amirpour's allegorical future-shock cannibal drama is almost a masterpiece, with startling images and ideas.‐

9/10 89% Maudie (2017) Sally Hawkins is marvelous as real-life folk artist Maud Lewis in this gentle, moving biopic.‐

4/4 No Score Yet Scooby-Doo! and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery (2015) Scooby Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery is a great, light fantasy for little kids and the perfect companion to/improvement upon KISS Meets the Phantom.‐ Fangoria

3/4 No Score Yet Montauk Chronicles (2015) By the time the film wraps, many questions are asked about the dirty deeds done and no matter your take, Garetano's intelligent sense of cinema is a force to be reckoned with, and his ability to visualize the stuff nightmares are made of is peerless. ‐ Fangoria

3/4 No Score Yet Why Horror? (2014) What makes Why Horror? truly appealing and unique as a film is Zimerman himself. This is his show all the way. ‐ Fangoria
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
3/4 96% It Follows (2015) It Follows is an incredibly evolved, joyously alive piece of "dead teenager" cinema that likely requires a few viewings to properly assimilate its rhythms.‐ Fangoria

3/4 No Score Yet Deep Sleep (Sonno Profondo) (2013) When taken as moving art installation, Sonno Profondo is nothing short of audacious, if occasionally a bit too frenetic. Recommended for horror fans who like their stuff weird and challenging.‐ Fangoria

3/4 No Score Yet The Reach (2017) The Reach is tons of fun and is best viewed in a theatre with a rowdy crowd, blasted onto the biggest screen possible.‐ Fangoria

3/4 No Score Yet Pieces Of Talent (2014) I was really impressed by PIECES OF TALENT-by its craft, intelligence and style. ‐ Fangoria

4/4 61% Maps to the Stars (2015) The film becomes the purest of horror film, the sort of picture where once the lights come up, we thank whatever deity we adore that, despite our own ample flaws, we are not these people. ‐ Fangoria

3.5/4 88% Backcountry (2015) For what it intends to do, BACKCOUNTRY is an almost perfectly realized film, making the best of its humble budget and exploiting its stunning locations to maximum effect.‐ Fangoria

3/4 No Score Yet Yellow (City of Lust) (2013) Holcombe has fashioned a work of style and wit, circumnavigating his lack of funds with nifty visual ideas, deft editing and rough, elegant edge.‐ Fangoria

2/4 13% Rage (2014) Sadly, Rage is generally a slog and it's not Cage's fault. ‐ Fangoria
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
3/4 No Score Yet Indie Director (2013) There's an energy though, an attitude and a kind of New Wave middle finger to convention that I find wildly appealing.‐ Fangoria

4/4 42% Here Comes the Devil (2013) Here Comes the Devil is one of the most interesting, frightening and thoroughly alive-both intellectually and viscerally-works of horror and dread this critic has seen in a very, very long time.‐ Fangoria
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
3/4 No Score Yet The Invoking (Sader Ridge) (2012) A slow, scary, ambiguous descent into the darkest part of the human psyche and one assembled by filmmakers who remember that what you don't see almost always trumps what you do.‐ Fangoria

3/4 86% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) There is a serious voodoo swirling around in [Only Lovers Left Alive] that you will not find anywhere else in any other vampire movie. That power will stick with you long after the lights go up.‐ Fangoria

4/4 84% Under the Skin (2014) Under the Skin is a movie that truly defies articulation. It's visceral; not violent or exploitative, but challenging and exotic.‐ Fangoria

3.5/4 50% Skull World (2013) Really, what makes McConnell's study of Sommer and the secret society in which he reigns so great is that he doesn't judge his subjects.‐ Fangoria

4/4 84% Berberian Sound Studio (2013) No one has ever inverted the European horror film with such wit, eloquence and purpose to challenge its audience. If you love this subgenre, you'll feel like BERBERIAN was made exclusively for you. I certainly know I did.‐ Fangoria

2.5/4 65% Antiviral (2013) I respect ANTIVIRAL, but I can't say I liked it. But then again, I'm not sure it wants to be liked. In fact, I believe it's trying very hard to make you not like it.‐ Fangoria

3.5/4 58% American Mary (2013) If AMERICAN MARY has flaws-which I'm sure it does-they're dwarfed. I was having such a good time, I chose to ignore them. Hell, some of my best, most beautiful and interesting friends are flawed. That's what makes them so unforgettable.‐ Fangoria

3/4 72% Oculus (2014) Without spoiling anything, the last half hour of OCULUS is one of the most stressful, disorienting and hypnotizing divebombs into child's-eye horror I've ever sat through.‐ Fangoria

9/10 70% Alien: Covenant (2017) The film is a masterclass in balancing gory horror and high-minded science fiction.‐

8/10 No Score Yet Dark Signal (2017) Dark Signal is ambitious and plays its horror and mystery dead straight, a refreshing approach that proves just how sincere Evers-Swindel is about his first film.‐

8/10 63% Willard (1971) Mann's original is one of those great '70s genre movies that is a good movie FIRST and whose horror creeps slowly and organically out of the narrative and character arcs.‐

10/10 89% Hounds of Love (2017) Devastating Australian horror thriller takes an unflinching look at a very sick relationship.‐

8/10 21% Rupture (2017) Noomi Rapace delivers a solid performance in this allegorical, torture-heavy horror movie.‐

7/10 44% Phoenix Forgotten (2017) New Ridley Scott-produced found footage horror film is full of sound and fury and paranoia.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
No Score Yet We Go On (2016) To fully appreciate We Go On, you have to kind of surrender to it. To fall into it and let the talented directors simply guide you through their carefully controlled landscape.‐

9/10 90% Raw (2017) Deceptively soft, urgent, wet and pulsing with intellect and power. It feels dangerous. Exciting. Like an awakening. Like a birth.‐

9/10 37% Brimstone (2017) This is a work of the blackest and yet most visionary cinematic art.‐

9/10 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) A smart, scary and sophisticated evolution of the zombie movie.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
8/10 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) Vaguely supernatural and wholly psychological, The Blackcoat's Daughter is a brooding, haunted and hypnotic movie experience.‐

7/10 100% Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 (2016) Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 is loud, shrill, spastic, sadistic, stylish, slipshod, stupid and smart in equal measures.‐
