2/5 0% The Offering (2016) "Tong manages to cobble together a nice image now and then, but most of The Offering is painfully ineffectual and makes for a tedious viewing experience. " ‐ About.com
Posted May 11, 2016
2/5 38% Bite (2016) "Bite is rife with unfulfilled potential. Even if all you want is to be grossed out, it doesn't push the envelope far enough and lacks the originality and sense of fun that could've made it a cult favorite. " ‐ About.com
Posted May 4, 2016
C 35% Stephen King's A Good Marriage (2014) "Veteran actors Allen, Lapaglia and Stephen Lang add a level of gravitas that sells the material, countering the matter-of-fact direction from Peter Askin that lends the air of a made-for-TV movie. But they can do only so much with a story this listless. " ‐ About.com
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2.5/5 52% Holidays (2016) "It's a middle-of-the-road anthology but boasts great energy and a sense of humor that runs throughout, helping make even the mediocre entries watchable. " ‐ About.com

3.5/5 91% Green Room (2016) "Green Room is a gloriously grisly free-for-all, a redneck Diehard meets Straw Dogs with an old school exploitation aesthetic that sacrifices depth for demented thrills. " ‐ About.com
Posted Apr 13, 2016
1.5/5 68% Darling (2016) "For all its attempts to startle, the most startling thing about Darling is how off-target this promising director's third feature film is. " ‐ About.com

Posted Apr 7, 2016
2.5/5 46% Pandemic (2016) "Pandemic is best experienced with the tempered expectations of direct-to-video fare. " ‐ About.com
Posted Mar 31, 2016
3/5 74% Baskin (2016) "It's a testament to the power of Baskin's imagery and atmosphere (and the solid performances), then, that the shortcomings fall by the wayside for long stretches as we absorb this freaky world in which the protagonists find themselves. " ‐ About.com
Posted Mar 24, 2016
2/5 64% Ava's Possessions (2016) "It becomes increasingly serious, creating an awkward middle-of-the-road tone in which neither comedy nor horror delivers a punch. " ‐ About.com
Posted Mar 2, 2016
1/5 0% Cabin Fever (2016) "Unlike many horror fans, I'm usually open to remakes, but Cabin Fever's humorless, overly reverential redo might set a new standard for pointlessness. " ‐ About.com
Posted Feb 18, 2016

Posted Feb 18, 2016
3.5/5 33% The Pack (2016) "The attractiveness of the package and the steady pace at which it doles out the action more than make up for the character shortcomings in one of the best animals-run-amok horror movies in recent memory. " ‐ About.com
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2/5 81% Southbound (2016) "Frankly, it's not even in the league of recent genre anthologies like A Christmas Horror Story and Tales of Halloween. " ‐ About.com

Posted Feb 1, 2016
1.5/5 50% Intruders (2016) "The film doesn't know if it wants to be an over-the-top, sensationalized shocker with cartoonishly evil villains... or a more realistic, gritty thriller with human characters, and the end result lies in a muddied, thrill-less, exasperating middle ground. " ‐ About.com
Posted Feb 1, 2016
2/5 7% Martyrs (2016) "While the end result isn't as disastrous as it could've been, it's predictably a more toothless effort that dulls the edges from start to finish. " ‐ About.com
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/5 88% Backcountry (2015) "MacDonald does a nice job of building up to an emotional finale that doesn't betray his dedication to brutal realism. " ‐ About.com
Posted Jan 3, 2016

Posted Nov 12, 2015
1.5/5 25% Condemned (2015) "[Condemned] could have the twisted appeal of Cabin Fever, but by eschewing any sort of realistic character development, it fails to build any of that film's delicious tension and paranoia, leaving it with gore and goo and little else. " ‐ About.com
Posted Nov 12, 2015

Posted Oct 22, 2015
3.5/5 79% Tales of Halloween "The pacing is fast and to the point, and even when the plots feel familiar, the short films manage to either pull the rug out from underneath us or just simply execute the stories with such a high level of skill, we don't mind the familiarity. " ‐ About.com
Posted Oct 15, 2015
3.5/5 71% The Final Girls (2015) "The cast is littered with recognizable faces who deliver marvelous comedic performances that help ensure The Final Girls is much more of a comedy than a horror movie. " ‐ About.com

4/5 86% Deathgasm (2015) "With its localized demonic outbreak, Deathgasm plays a bit like Demons or Evil Dead, but with the energetic, lighthearted appeal (and splattery gore) of Dead Alive and the clueless fanboy heroism of Wayne's World or even Beavis and Butthead. " ‐ About.com
Posted Oct 2, 2015
4/5 76% A Christmas Horror Story "Perfect viewing for either Christmas or Halloween, A Christmas Horror Story is easily one of the best Christmas-themed horror movies in recent memory, ranking up there with foreign fare Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale and Saint Nick. " ‐ About.com

Posted Sep 16, 2015
3.5/5 86% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "While it might not work as the scare-a-minute spookfest you think you're watching early on, it redeems itself as a grim, dramatic, emotionally charged tale. " ‐ About.com
Posted Sep 16, 2015
3/5 63% The Boy (2015) "It succeeds in conveying the dark edge of an effective thriller, but it lacks the human sentiment -- the poignancy, the devastation -- that would've made it soar above less heady genre fare. " ‐ About.com

2.5/5 18% Monsters: Dark Continent (2015) "The CGI effects are sensational, teaming with the beautiful, landscape-rich cinematography to create some stunning imagery. It's a shame it feels underutilized with this script full of war clich├ęs and unsympathetic characters. " ‐ About.com
