Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi) (1982)
The Wicker Tree (2012)
"Who loves ya, Beelzebub? Why, Kojak... er, Telly Savalas, of course! The lollypop licking Lucifer shadows lovely Lisa throughout this lesser-known, more unusual of Italian giallo master Mario Bava's oeuvres"
Silent House (2012)
Beneath The Darkness (2012)
"While certainly a low-budget flick which relies heavily on suspense over almost everything - meaning, there's a lot of cat and mouse stalking around or/and talking about how spooky Ely is - Beneath the Darkness doesn't necessary sink or succeed."
The Woman in Black (2012)
"The Woman In Black is not a bad deal for those who are easily scared or/and haven't seen many ghost movies. It's well acted, nicely photographed, the story makes sense, and the conclusion will be satisfactory to most. "
"While Chronicle is a fast-paced, well-made film, and certainly one of my faves in the found footage flotsam and jetsam, it's a dramatic sci-fi thriller straight up. (There aren't any moments of 'horror'.) "
Underworld: Awakening (2012)
"While his name isn't as instantly accessible as his costars, Mark Kelly carries this movie from beginning to end and holds his own well against perhaps more charismatic but ultimately less-deep performances."
Midnight Son (2009)
The Innkeepers (2012)
The Divide (2012)
The Devil Inside (2012)
"I wanted more pizzazz and deeper, more nuanced characterizations from Fincher and co., but for those who have no context regarding pervious Larsson presentations this story-driven procedural may be well be good enough."
"What's not to love about film that has a haunted house, a mad scientist, a cemetery, flesh-eating cellar-dwelling zombies, an evil imaginary friend, a clueless cavalcade of victims, gore galore, AND an over-the-top vampire bat-bite?"
The Thing (2011)
Texas Killing Fields (2011)
The Last Circus (2011)
The Skin I Live In (2011)
Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2011)
Final Destination 5 (2011)
The Clinic (2010)
"Serkis shows his chimp-chops here (having cut his teeth, so to speak, as King Kong), conveying everything from fear to forcefulness through his singularly expressive eyes (hm... are CG eyes Windows XP to the soul?)."
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
"Although no one actually says 'This town ain't big enough for the both of us,' or 'Take me to your leader' Cowboys & Aliens does indeed incorporate many of its mash-up movie roots and it does so well."

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (2011)
Scream 4 (2011)
Sucker Punch (2011)
The Zombie Farm (2009)
"A love letter to [director] James Wan's favorite movie, Poltergeist, this spooky story follows a young couple and their children into a new home... and into the pit of darkness when an evil presence makes its insidious intentions known. "
Drive Angry (2011)
Vanishing On 7th Street (2011)
" 'I exist!' is the clarion call of the characters in Vanishing on 7th Street, just before they're vanquished into a deadly netherworld of shadows. After you've seen this tedious thriller you may wish the film didn't exist at all."
The Resident (2012)
Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
The Rite (2011)
Chain Letter (2010)
"One M1ssed Call meets Final Destination in this formulaic but fun gore-fest. In case you are wondering, there are chains. And letters. [it] is about as subtle as a sledgehammer, but that works in this mushy, gushy milieu. "
