Posted Apr 23, 2019
6/10 The Silence (2019) Molly Henery The Silence has the potential to bring audiences something new and terrifying, but it sadly fails to surpass other films with similar plots. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2019

Posted Mar 13, 2019
6.5/10 Dead Ant (2017) Molly Henery Dead Ant is a somewhat cheesy, but delightfully funny film that shows a has-been band pitted against giant killer ants. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
3.5/10 Between the Trees (2019) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2019
5.5/10 O Clube dos Canibais (2018) Molly Henery The Cannibal Club has some successful elements, the lack of tension in the plot results in a rather forgettable film. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2019
8/10 Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Molly Henery Happy Death Day 2U has all the fun of the first film while also incorporating new genres and more depth. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
8/10 The Golem (2018) Molly Henery The Golem delivers a unique story rooted in Jewish tradition that is both beautiful and disturbing. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2019
5.5/10 Dry Blood (2017) Molly Henery Jones and Carney create a complex, chilling tale with Dry Blood that shows the filmmakers' potential, but it falls just short of being truly successful. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2019
7/10 Lifechanger (2018) Molly Henery Lifechanger is a film that holds nothing back as it takes the audience on an unexpected journey with a shapeshifter. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019

Posted Jan 5, 2019
9/10 Bird Box (2018) Molly Henery Bird Box is a tense, emotional, and even frightening film with a unique plot and deeply emotional core. EDIT
Posted Dec 31, 2018
8.5/10 The House That Jack Built (2018) Molly Henery The House That Jack Built is all at once a stunning and unhinged character study of a serial killer. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2018
6/10 Slay Belles (2018) Molly Henery Slay Belles isn't the best holiday horror film, but it is still a riotous good time. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
8/10 Snowflake (2017) Molly Henery Snowflake is a veritable nesting doll of revenge tales layered upon each other in a fun and meta way. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9/10 Suspiria (2018) Molly Henery Suspiria (2018) is a haunting and ethereal tale of witchcraft, mutilation, and death. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2018

Posted Nov 16, 2018
8.5/10 Overlord (2018) Molly Henery Overlord packs monstrous frights into a claustrophobic WWII setting to deliver a thrill ride audiences won't soon forget. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2018
7/10 At the Devil's Door (2013) Molly Henery 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). EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
9/10 Witching & Bitching (2013) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
10/10 The Monster Squad (1987) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
3.5/10 VHS: Viral (2014) Molly Henery 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." EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
7.5/10 Mr. Jones (2013) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
8/10 Horns (2013) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
5/10 Quarantine 2: Terminal (2011) Molly Henery This movie had a couple scary moments, but it is nothing compared to the first film or it's Spanish predecessors. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
6.5/10 The Lazarus Effect (2015) Molly Henery While the storyline is not the most original, this film still gives a few good scares. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
6/10 Hostel Part III (2011) Molly Henery I really was pleasantly surprised with this film. It was funny, it was gory, it had great twists, and it updated an old storyline in a genius way. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
9/10 It Follows (2014) Molly Henery Please go see this movie. It is the kind of movie that makes you think about it for days afterwards, which means they did a great job. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
5/10 Honeymoon (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
7/10 The Houses October Built (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
6.5/10 Unfriended (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
9/10 The Babadook (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
10/10 The Canal (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
8.5/10 Jessabelle (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
3.5/10 The Remaining (2014) Molly Henery A piece of religious propaganda lacking scares or substance. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
6/10 Zombeavers (2014) Molly Henery f you're looking for a fun movie that will make you laugh out loud, definitely watch Zombeavers. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
7.5/10 Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) Molly Henery Insidious: Chapter 3 was very successful in the sense that it delivered the scares and kept your eyes glued to the screen. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
6.5/10 Late Phases (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
5/10 Animal (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
4/10 Dark Summer (2015) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
4.5/10 The Gallows (2015) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
8.5/10 What We Do in the Shadows (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2018
8/10 Maggie (2015) Molly Henery It does an excellent job of telling an effective story of strong family bonds, that just happens to involve zombies. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2018
9/10 The Guest (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2018
7.5/10 Dark Was the Night (2014) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2018
4.5/10 Sinister 2 (2015) Molly Henery 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. EDIT
