The Month in Horror Releases: December

And just like that, we’re in our last month of horror for 2017—that shit is crazy. I wish I could say it was going out with a bang, but this month’s genre releases aren’t as strong as we’ve seen in previous months. That being said, there are still a handful of indie films on the […]
