3.5/10 No Score Yet Between the Trees (2019) Between the Trees can't seem to decide what kind of film it wants to be. It tries very hard to marry two different stories into one plot, but it results in a confusing jumble. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

7/10 39% At The Devil's Door (2014) It created such a feeling of unease leaving me thoroughly creeped out long after the movie ended (without necessarily having any big in-your-face scares). - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
9/10 83% Witching and Bitching (2014) It was exciting, suspenseful, creepy, and truly hilarious. The situations these men get themselves into over and over again keep you laughing from start to finish, without being too hokey. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

10/10 67% The Monster Squad (1987) This film really has everything you could want from a light-hearted eighties horror flick. It is witty, it has great practical effects, the storyline is very original, and it appeals to people of all ages. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
3.5/10 35% V/H/S: Viral (2014) I think aside from the shorts being more nonsensical and not even remotely scary, the thing that upset me the most was the overarching storyline of "Vicious Circles." - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
7.5/10 50% Mr. Jones (2014) It's creepy, it has great acting, a unique storyline, and it is the kind of film you can discuss with people long after it's over and still find new things to talk about. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

8/10 39% Horns (2014) If the fact that the film stars Harry Potter isn't enough for you (it was enough for me), then see it because it's a good story that is not only dark and ominous but also has some hilarity mixed in. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

5/10 75% Quarantine 2: Terminal (2011) This movie had a couple scary moments, but it is nothing compared to the first film or it's Spanish predecessors. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

6.5/10 16% The Lazarus Effect (2015) While the storyline is not the most original, this film still gives a few good scares. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

5/10 73% Honeymoon (2014) This movie really could have been great. It had all the right tools at it's disposal. Unfortunately, the storyline took an odd turn that left me scratching my head. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

7/10 57% The Houses October Built (2014) In my opinion, this film did not get as much credit as it deserved. While the ending was a bit lackluster, the overall storyline was very interesting and creepy. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

6.5/10 63% Unfriended (2015) It worked as a way to teach teens to be more compassionate when it comes to cyber bullying, and it effectively demonstrated that whatever you put on the internet is there forever. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
9/10 98% The Babadook (2014) It had amazing acting, a creative storyline, and it still was able to give me the heebie jeebies. It's a horror film with a deeper meaning about how people deal with grief after the death of a loved one. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

10/10 74% The Canal (2014) It really was everything I want in a horror film; scary, beautiful, excellent acting, and a storyline that is both simple and imaginative at the same time. This is definitely the kind of film that will be on my mind for quite a while. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

8.5/10 29% Jessabelle (2014) If you're looking for a classic ghost story that also has a unique storyline, this is the movie for you. It had all the elements of a great ghost story, but it also added a little something extra with the voodoo. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
3.5/10 50% The Remaining (2014) A piece of religious propaganda lacking scares or substance. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

6.5/10 67% Late Phases (2014) While this is not my favorite werewolf movie, it was still well done. I appreciated the use of practical effects and it was a pretty unique storyline. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
5/10 43% Animal (2014) This film is predictable, stereotypical, and has some plot holes that drove me nuts. Despite these shortcomings, the acting, practical effects, and healthy amount of gore still make the film fun to watch. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
4/10 30% Dark Summer (2015) It was a unique idea and I feel like if I read it as a book, I would have enjoyed it more. Unfortunately it wasn't executed well in movie form. It was just generally boring and not even remotely scary at any point in time. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
4.5/10 14% The Gallows (2015) The problem is that all the scary scenes were shown in the trailers, there were too many unanswered questions, and they made Charlie almost a bit humorous. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
8.5/10 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) I would definitely suggest horror fans share with their friends or family that may be weary of horror films. It is not scary at all, it is so amusing, and it perfectly fuses comical scenarios with creatures typically associated with scary movies. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

8/10 60% Maggie (2015) It does an excellent job of telling an effective story of strong family bonds, that just happens to involve zombies. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

9/10 91% The Guest (2014) I will be keeping an eye out for more films directed by Adam Wingard. From what I have seen of his work Wingard perfectly blends horror, suspense, despicable villains (that you can't help but like), amazing music, and strong female characters. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

7.5/10 52% Dark Was The Night (2015) In general, the acting was excellent (especially Durand). I also loved that they took a creative, original story line and turned it into an exceptionally creepy film. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
4.5/10 14% Sinister 2 (2015) It had the potential to be as good as the first film, but the filmmakers made unfortunate choices that diluted the main story line and overexposed everything that was supposed to be scary. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
5/10 20% Extinction (2015) They tried to create something with a deeper story focusing on the survivors, while also updating the zombies into something more terrifying. Unfortunately, it just fell a bit flat. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
6/10 15% The Pyramid (2014) This is a film with many flaws, and any critic can spot that. Despite this, it is still a fun watch. Likely someone who has an interest in ancient history and mythology would enjoy it more than other viewers. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT

7/10 36% The Green Inferno (2015) I'd say that as a whole this was a successful project by Eli Roth. There are obviously aspects of the film that did not work within the context of the story. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
6/10 67% The Boy (2015) With how slow the film is, and the fact that all the action only really occurs within the last 15 minutes of the film (and even then it isn't that action packed), I would say this film is definitely not for everyone. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
9/10 73% The Final Girls (2015) There was an interesting story, it made fun of itself, it honored the classics, can be touching at times, and I don't think I stopped laughing the entire time. - The Blogging Banshee EDIT
