Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 74% The Keeping Room (2015) For the most part, the western is a particularly male-oriented genre. And that's sort of what makes Daniel Barber's The Keeping Room such a cool, satisfying surprise. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 28, 2015
No Score Yet The Devil's Carnival: Alleluia! (2015) There's no way a studio would throw any money at gory, Goth-y musicals that toss horror, comedy, and religion into a blender - which makes these odd little movies all the more admirable. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 19, 2015
45% Cooties (2015) Barely scary but frequently funny. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 19, 2015
76% A Christmas Horror Story (2015) Feels a lot like a Christmas version of Michael Dougherty's seasonal favorite Trick 'r Treat, and that's meant as a compliment. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 12, 2015
64% The Visit (2015) For such a small film, The Visit represents a big win for M. Night Shyamalan. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 12, 2015
33% Contracted: Phase II (2015) A passable sequel that earns points for trying to expand upon its predecessor, even if it takes a little while to get to the new stuff. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 5, 2015
13% Cherry Tree (2016) Coasts along at such an energetic clip that it's hard to not have a little fun with all the crazy witch madness. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Sep 1, 2015
85% Sun Choke (2016) A full-bore psychological gut punch of a horror film. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 31, 2015
24% Hellions (2015) You may never trust trick-or-treaters again after this movie. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 31, 2015
33% Some Kind of Hate (2015) A horror movie every bully should see. ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 31, 2015
61% Hostel (2006) This is a grim, gory, and unapologetically grungy piece of "survival horror." I dug it. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
51% 30 Days of Night (2007) A blissfully mean-spirited and aggressively creepy terror tale, and one that's not content to simply rest on its one good concept. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
15% Hannibal Rising (2007) The guy's about as intimidating as a mildly irritated kitten, and that certainly doesn't up the creep factor. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
73% Fido (2007) Pretty funny, surprisingly smart, pleasant to look at, and often quite sick. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
11% The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007) As far as stuff like mood, atmosphere, tone, and intensity is concerned, this sequel is a completely empty vessel. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
55% Mr. Brooks (2007) A big-budget psycho-thriller that lets two of our more "sedate" leading men cut loose with some entertainingly juicy performances. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
44% Hostel Part II (2007) A tight-fisted slow burn that whacks you in face with two or three really horrifying sequences. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
9% Captivity (2007) Little more than a grungy-looking TV movie of the week with some pointless gore tossed in. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
21% The Hitcher (2007) If you can't improve upon your original in some small way, then you're simply churning out assembly-line product for a gradually more disinterested fan-base. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
21% Dead Silence (2007) If you're in the mood for a Saturday afternoon-ish throwback thriller, you could certainly do a hell of a lot worse than this one. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
67% Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door (2007) It's a dark, harsh, and sometimes powerfully unpleasant film, but it's also very well made. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
79% 1408 (2007) Definitely one of the best King adaptations in years ... and I've seen 'em all. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
25% Halloween (2007) Pick the lamest Halloween sequel out there and you've just found a better horror movie than this one. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
50% Hatchet (2006) Feels like an old-school slasher flick that's been hidden on a dusty shelf for the past twenty years. And yes, I mean that as a compliment. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
70% Black Sheep (2006) If there was a list of movies about killer mutated sheep, this would undoubtedly be the best of the bunch. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
61% Bug (2006) This "smaller" experiment turns out to be William Friedkin's best film in over 20 years. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
70% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) A damn worthy follow-up to an unexpectedly excellent chiller. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
0% One Missed Call (2008) It's not even remotely scary, which leaves the horror fans out. But it's also way too boring to even poke fun at. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
40% All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2013) What we might actually call a "thinking man's slasher flick." ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
22% The Eye (2008) Takes a B-minus import and turns it into a D-minus retread. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
85% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) You've got enough ideas for an entire geek-friendly trilogy in this one crazy movie. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
14% Mirrors (2008) One of the better films of the infamous J-horror remake onslaught. Relatively speaking. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
80% Eden Lake (2008) Works exceedingly well, and will probably stick in your gut for a little while. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
73% The Children (2008) A solid balance between set-up, conflict, and horrific execution. Just a well-made horror film all around. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
57% My Bloody Valentine 3-D (2009) No pretense, no delusions, just slick, basic stalk & shock mayhem with a 3-D coating that works unexpectedly well. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
25% Friday the 13th (2009) I'd say they did a solid enough job of resurrecting a simple scary tale for a new generation. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
42% The Last House on the Left (2009) A fascinating and confrontational horror film that deals with terrors a lot more chilling than some dude swinging a machete. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
16% The Haunting in Connecticut (2009) If you're a big fan of creaking floorboards, sudden jolts, and abandoned funeral homes, go nuts. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) A bit gross, a bit silly, and entirely entertaining. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
48% Doghouse (2009) A Mad Magazine-style zombie-fest that chomps on PC sensibilities like they're made out of obnoxious male flesh. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
67% Dead Snow (Død snø) (2009) Earns points for enthusiasm, creativity, and a powerful devotion to all things ultra-splattery. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
50% Antichrist (2009) A confrontational film that dances between the sublime, the mundane, and the shocking with little to no regard for audience expectations. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
61% A Perfect Getaway (2009) There's always something to be said for a psycho-thriller that delivers interesting characters in a cool setting. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
55% Orphan (2009) Directed crisply and with a palpable air of mid-'70s paranoia thriller. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
29% The Final Destination (2009) An absolute slap in the face to the fans who made the franchise a hit in the first place. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
19% H2: Halloween II (2009) There's not a pained expression, a confused sneer, or a filthy grimace that Zombie won't linger on for 10 seconds longer than he needs to. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
95% Best Worst Movie (2010) A fantastic deconstruction of how a bad film actually earn its "cult fave" status. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
86% The House of the Devil (2009) Made for those who have fond memories of low-key '70s devil chillers that focused on mood and atmosphere ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
43% Jennifer's Body (2009) The integral problem with Jennifer's Body is that of tone. Or lack thereof. ‐ TheHorrorShow
Posted Aug 28, 2015
83% Paranormal Activity (2009) A fresh coat of paint applied to an impressively old-fashioned ghost story. ‐ TheHorrorShow
