The Beast is real in the first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Split

Split-1

M. Night Shyamalan’s latest looks clownshit crazy. Imagine Norman Bates with 21 more personalities and you have Split, a thriller that sees an insane James McAvoy completely lose his mind. This is such a perfectly weird looking movie, and knowing that it’s coming from Shyamalan is both exciting and intriguing—and I love that the trailer hints at […]

Adam Wingard’s Blair Witch haunts the woods with a new trailer

_DSC0963.ARW

By now I’m sure most of you have had time to digest the news that what was once The Woods is now Blair Witch, an official sequel to 1999’s The Blair Witch Project. Adam Wingard’s stealthy sequel took a page out of The Cellar’s book (that movie turned out to be 10 Cloverfield Lane) and even took it […]

Short Round: Arrêt Pipi, is it red or blue?

Pipi-Red-Blue

What’s even stranger than the Japanese urban legend of a malicious spirit that prowls public bathrooms offering its visitors red or blue toilet-paper is the fact that director Maarten Groen made a ridiculously good short film out of it. Arrêt Pipi, inspired by the Japanese tale of Aka Manto, skips exposition and jumps straight into the nightmare, letting the […]

First look at Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise in IT

Bill-Skarsgard

We no longer have to wonder what Hemlock Grove’s Bill Skarsgard is going to look like as Pennywise the clown in Andy Muschietti’s IT because EW just shared the first ever look at Stephen King’s terrifying monster. And while it’s still a pretty big tease, we at least get to see his face and it’s menacing as all hell. […]

Fear your dreams in the new trailer for Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake

Before-I-Wake-Flanagan

After a crazy long delay—I first premiered the trailer over a year ago—Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake will finally see the light of day, first at the Fantasia Film Festival and then in theaters on September 9th. It sucks that the delay doesn’t exactly inspire much confidence in Flanagan’s latest, because the film does have a […]

There’s so much blood in the first teaser for Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 2

Ash-Evil-Dead-S2-new-photo

Coming off of a brilliant first season—you can read my review HERE—Ash vs. Evil Dead is gearing up for another epic return this October and today we have the first teaser trailer for its second season! It’s hard to gauge what exactly is going on here but I do love every bloody second of it—one […]

The Month in Horror Releases: July

Lights-Out

June turned out to be a rather solid month for the genre, most notably giving us The Conjuring 2, which was yet another masterful turn by James Wan. And while I didn’t catch every film I wanted to (I still need to see The Neon Demon), June gave genre fans plenty of variety. So July may […]

Trailer for Alexandre Aja’s The 9th Life of Louis Drax mystifies

9th-life-of-louis-drax

Alex Aja sure hit the genre running when he broke into horror with High Tension, a brilliant cat-and-mouse thriller that he soon followed up with his remake of Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes—a remake that, in my opinion, far exceeds the original. Since then, however, Aja has been making mediocre (at best) movies—Mirrors, Piranha 3D, and […]

The Girl with All the Gifts is hungry for flesh in fantastic first trailer

12

Directed by Colm McCarthy, The Girl with All the Gifts is a post-apocalyptic thriller with, you guessed it, zombies—because the apocalypse is way more exciting with man-eating people running around! But the good thing about the zombie genre being so saturated right now is that we’re starting to see filmmakers take a different approach to the […]
