Zombie Isle (2014)

ZI10

I had an idea for a story or screenplay once, set in a world where personal karma was a measurable quantity used for practical purposes, so for instance people with bad luck due to them could be prevented from boarding airplanes, and specialists could be hired to inflict controlled calamity on others to prevent worse … Continue reading

The Sacrament (2013)

The Sacrament banner

  You might be wondering why there’s flying pigs and a frozen devil at the top of this review. It’s simple. I used to say that pigs would fly and it’d be a cold day in Hell before I found a Ti West film engaging and enjoyable. Well that day, I’m happy to say, has … Continue reading

The Babadook (2014)

B0

Wow. It has been a while since a movie has bowled me over the way THE BABADOOK has done. This may seem like another drop in the ocean of praise that Jennifer Kent’s debut feature film is receiving now, but rest assured, I believe it is well deserved. This has elevated itself comfortably to my … Continue reading

The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)

The Taking of Deborah Logan banner

The last month has been a real surprise for me here at AnythingHorror.com. It seems like the entire year I’ve been watching pretty terrible remakes, sequels, found footage, and indie films. But since October it seems my luck has changed and I’ve been viewing some solid, fantastic films. Recently I reviewed EXISTS, the newest film … Continue reading

Wolfcop (2014)

WC 866434

There are supernatural creatures which have reached across cultures and centuries to become almost universal, albeit with some interesting regional variations: ghosts, vampires, zombies, demons… Jerry Lewis… and then there are werewolves. Of the things that haunt movies today, werewolves seem to have been eclipsed by the various undead, whether bloodsucking or just brain-munching. Which … Continue reading

Reclaiming Vampires and Werewolves!!

vampire banner

Over the years, vampires and werewolves have been featured more often as the butt of a joke than the source of screams. And there’s no doubt that a large portion of the blame resides with the Twilight franchise. If Bram Stoker, author of the the original Dracula, could see the new reputation associated with vampires, … Continue reading

Exists (2014)

Exists banner2

It’s amazing how in the right writer’s hands the most familiar plots and set-ups can feel fresh and new. EXISTS takes the familiar story of a group of twenty-somethings getting attacked by Bigfoot and injects new energy and fun into the story. Now don’t worry, I didn’t give away any spoilers. EXISTS is not like … Continue reading

Housebound (2014)

HB 866434

Noted author and all-around smug d-bag Samuel Johnson once commented on an aspiring writer’s work, “Your manuscript is both good and original. But the parts that were good were not original, and the parts that were original were not good.” Johnson would have made a perfect critic today, only he would have added some LOLs … Continue reading

V/H/S: Viral (2014)

VHS Viral banner1

And the horror anthologies just keep coming!! Not too long ago I posted my review of ABCs OF DEATH 2 and discussed in that review the long love affair the horror genre has with the anthology format. The most active current anthology franchise is no doubt the V/H/S films. Since 2012, the producers of the … Continue reading

Zombeavers (2014)

Banner

Hollywood history is filled with movies whose titles seem to have been chosen by people on heavy medication. Really, if the idea of a title is to attract an audience, then what’s the point of a misleading title? Lars Von Triers’ ANTICHRIST had no devil; it should have been called WILLEM DEFOE GETS HIS BITS … Continue reading
