‘Underwater’ Review – A Surprisingly Solid Subterranean Thrill

Underwater, the new horror thriller from director William Eubank (The Signal), has received multiple comparisons to Ridley Scott’s 1979 Alien. There is certainly some merit in this praise. Both films feature a tight-knit crew working together in a confined space- for Alien it is a merchant vessel in the farthest reaches of space, for Underwater…

Op-Ed: The Best Horror Films of the Decade

Horror is a genre that has endured its ability to elicit the strongest and most primal emotions from audiences. Fear is an incredibly powerful thing, and we just cannot seem to resist the urge to scare ourselves silly in the relative safety of a movie theater or at home. The genre is constantly cooking up…

In the Tall Grass review – Lures You Into Its Maze and Doesn’t Let Go

It’s a great time to be a Stephen King fan. The past couple of years have been a sort of resurgence for the author and his place in pop culture, mostly thanks to 2017’s wildly successful It adaptation. Now it feels like a new King film, television series, book, or any of the three that’s noticeably…

‘Ready or Not’ Says it’s Time to Bring Out the Guillotines

The world’s on fire, and people are angry. That’s putting it mildly, but nevertheless, the collective mindset of the current generations is one of righteous fury. Every once in a while in these times of crisis there comes a movie or two that channels that rage towards the ones responsible for all the chaos and suffering…

Mindhunter Season 2 – Ego, Connection, and Serial Killers

We take a lot of things for granted in the realm of entertainment. A series about interviews with serial killers which are then used to bring the ones still at large to justice, from a brilliant mind like David Fincher, certainly tops the list. Based off of the real F.B.I. Behavioral Science Unit that surfaced…

The Best Episodes of Invader Zim

Invader Zim has always been a unique kind of phenomenon. Upon its release in 2001, the show immediately set itself apart from everything else airing on television at the time; its bizarre sense of humor, dark subject matter, and deranged animation and art style all led to high praise from critics and audiences alike. The series…

Crawl – A Tight, Tense Creature Feature in Dirty Florida Flood Water

A horror movie set in Florida seems like a no-brainer. There are countless terrifying stories that you can set in the land of smelly swamps, suffocating humidity, crowded theme parks, and insane residents. Crawl goes for a combination of a creature feature (starring some Florida gators) and a natural disaster flick (starring a Florida hurricane). It’s…

Besides a Nefarious Octavia Spencer Performance, Ma Is a Bit of a Mess

The second you give me a horror film starring Octavia Spencer as the villain, I’m there. Ma, a new thriller from the director of The Help and The Girl on a Train, held the promise of that, but aside from a devilishly fun performance from Spencer in the titular role, it doesn’t offer much else. It…

“Us” is Unsettling, Bloody, and One Hell of a Thought-Provoking Ride

If, for whatever reason, you were still having doubts that Jordan Peele, half the mind behind Key and Peele, which filled the void left from Chappelle's Show, and the entire mind behind 2017's monster hit Get Out, as well as the upcoming Twilight Zone reboot, consider them extinguished with the release of Us. Peele has…
