The Month in Horror Releases: December

autopsyofjanedoe_still_02

This is it, folks, the end of 2016 is near with December marking the final month of horror for 2016—that’s crazy. What’s even crazier, perhaps, is horror’s ridiculous line-up of films seeing a release this month.

It’s mayhem at the office in The Belko Experiment trailer

belko-1

Coming off of the not-so-good The Darkness, Wolf Creek director Greg McLean returns to the genre with the James Gunn-penned (Guardians of the Galaxy) horror film The Belko Experiment, which looks absolutely nutty.

While not a household name—Torrens previously directed 2011’s indie haunter Apartment 143—his latest foray into the horror genre promises to be delightfully wicked and one to remember. […]

Art: The Witch by Aaron Horkey

The-Witch-2

Robert Eggers’ brilliant, slow-burning debut The Witch thrived on atmospheric perfection—it’s one of the many elements of the film that truly stands out, allowing the narrative to crawl under the skin and stay there. With a disorienting score blaring in the background, the film finds unnerving horror through subtlety as a constant sense of evil looms in […]
