4.5/5 100% Nightmares in Red, White and Blue (2009) It delivers a film school semester's worth of knowledge in 1 tight & thoroughly entertaining feature and goes a long way toward validating horror as a respectable film genre.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 No Score Yet Staunton Hill (2009) The one saving grace for this low-budget film falls within the capable hands of the actors. Staunton Hill has some really impressive talent.‐ Dread Central

2/5 No Score Yet The Thaw (2009) The Thaw appears to borrow a tremendous amount of its plot from The X-Files. There was a good movie here that lost its way.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 No Score Yet Seventh Moon (2008) Seventh Moon is a badass and at times downright chilling little movie‐ Dread Central

1.5/5 38% Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009) While it's obviously aimed at the "tween" crowd, we fail to see where this movie would appeal to even young viewers.‐ Dread Central

4.5/5 29% Survival of the Dead (2010) For those who watch Romero's zombie movies for the thrill of the kill, there are plenty of scenes to entertain. [It} is (arguably) one of the best in the series‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 28% Pandorum (2009) Pandorum isn't all that bad. It's a perfectly middle-of-the-road genre flick not quite worthwhile enough to wholeheartedly recommend. And the creatures know kung-fu.‐ Dread Central

5/5 72% The Mist (2007) The Mist divides those who want cheap escapist thrills from those who like their horror with real heart, brains, and courage.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2009
4.5/5 83% Paranormal Activity (2009) It's effective as hell and is a prime example of how to win an audience over and keep their attention in a highly constrained, claustrophobic atmosphere in the most unpretentious way possible.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2009
5/5 90% Zombieland (2009) A killer comedy with a vicious sense of humor. The running undead look fantastic and are dispatched in a never-ending, ever-evolving innovative shopping list of carnage. You'll applaud every crunch.‐ Dread Central

2/5 7% Whiteout (2009) Whiteout is not awful, but it is maddeningly mediocre.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2009
3/5 43% Jennifer's Body (2009) The film itself isn't that great ... [but] underneath all of the stuff that doesn't quite work is a film about teenage girl best friends that is spectacular.‐ Dread Central

5/5 89% An American Werewolf in London (1981) An American Werewolf in London, like a fine wine, just keeps getting more and more vintage.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2009
5/5 92% Shaun of the Dead (2004) Shaun of the Dead is not only one of the single best zombie movies ever made, but it's also as close to perfect as a film can get.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 72% Army of Darkness (1993) I'll probably take heat for saying so, but this flick kind of sucks.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2009
3.5/5 43% Dorian Gray (2009) A very respectful retelling and study of man's inherent quest for self-destruction given the removal of personal ramifications.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 No Score Yet Its knack for combining scary, funny, angsty, bleak, and philosophical ideas into one very compelling package.‐ Dread Central

4.5/5 No Score Yet Supernatural: The Complete Third Season still packs a powerful punch and is without a doubt the best of the bunch.‐ Dread Central

2/5 22% Case 39 (2010) I'm sure it will do decent business among the undemanding weekend-horror crowd and Zellweger fans when it eventually sees the light of day. Nobody else need apply.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 70% Coffin Rock (2009) The Australian outback looks beautiful on film, but you'll never feel particularly invested or shocked at what goes on during the runtime‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2009
2/5 22% Sorority Row (2009) The young'uns and fairly squeamish in your audience may succumb to the two decent jump scares you'll find within, but expect nothing more...a case study of a wasted opportunity in R-rated horror.‐ Dread Central

4/5 57% 9 (2009) 9 manages to have an underlying socio-political message, and still finds a way to be a breathtaking and entertaining feature that leaves you engrossed until the very end.‐ Dread Central

3/5 55% The Descent 2 (2009) If you're a fan of the Crawlers and just want to watch some people get mangled up underground then you'll definitely find something to like here.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 82% Triangle (2009) If you're a fan of Christopher Smith's previous work and want to see his cinematic maturation, it's definitely worth seeing Triangle as it certainly isn't a complete loss.‐ Dread Central

4/5 28% Gamer (2009) Gamer grabs you by the back of the head and runs you through a minefield with internal organs flying at you around every corner...It's fast, mean and dirty as all hell.‐ Dread Central

2/5 0% Long Weekend (Nature's Grave) (2008) Nature's Grave isn't worth wasting words on. It's Grand Theft Cinema: a pointless, artless clone that serves no purpose.‐ Dread Central

2/5 No Score Yet The Crypt (2009) There's not much to see, and the film is ultimately forgettable.‐ Dread Central

4/5 No Score Yet Icons of Sci-Fi Toho Collection is a must have collection of films for fans from a time when CGI wasn't even a thought, and practical and physical effects ruled the roost.‐ Dread Central

2/5 19% H2: Halloween II (2009) Halloween II is every bit as pointless a sequel to the first as that film was a pointless remake of the John Carpenter classic.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 29% The Final Destination (2009) FD4 fully embraces its gimmicky format, sending all those great bodily fluids spilling towards your face.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2009
2.5/5 61% A Perfect Getaway (2009) This is pretty light fare, but it does not pretend to be anything but a populist popcorn flick shot to be shown in the latter part of the summer.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2009
4.5/5 90% District 9 (2009) District 9 is a thoroughly original, super realistic, sci-fi-tinted tale of woe; and at the end of the day we have to applaud such originality as loudly as we possibly can.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 95% Best Worst Movie (2010) A good way to kill a couple of hours.‐ Dread Central

4/5 55% Orphan (2009) I really enjoyed Orphan and enjoyed the fact that the film went to some pretty dark and twisted places.‐ Dread Central

4/5 30% The Collector (2009) Dunstan clearly delivers what horror fans desire: a leap from their seats.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 No Score Yet Messengers 2: The Scarecrow (2009) For better and for worse, Messengers 2: The Scarecrow is - dare I say it - corny.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 26% Lesbian Vampire Killers (2009) It may not be smart, but under the right circumstances, it sure can be fun.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2009
4/5 70% Tormented (2009) There's a huge amount of respect for the horror side of things here as well. If it sounds like your cup of tea, then dive in as soon as you possibly can.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2009
3.5/5 82% Bakjwi (Thirst) (2009) It's a highbrow, critically acclaimed movie that succeeds far more as a down and dirty horror movie than it does as an art film.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2009
3.5/5 80% Book of Blood (2008) Book of Blood may very well turn out to be remembered as one of the few faithful Barker adaptations not executed by the author himself.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2009
4.5/5 68% Grace (2009) Grace is very much the antidote to what plagues most of the horror genre today. It will restore your faith that there is still an artistic vision within the horror genre.‐ Dread Central

2/5 22% Blood: The Last Vampire (2009) As the credits began to roll, I thought to myself, "I can't believe this was a theatrical release." Neither will you if you pay to see it.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet The Terminators (2009) The unsung hero of The Terminators is without a doubt director Xavier S. Puslowski and his ability to keep this mindless hodgepodge moving along at a brisk pace.‐ Dread Central
