Exists (2014)

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

HB 866434

Housebound (2014)

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)

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)

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

The Matchmaker (2013) & Super Zero (2014)

It seems as though I get short films in batches over here at AnythingHorror.com. I’ll go months without getting any short films and then suddenly my inbox will be flooded with them. It’s either feast or famine!! Recently I received a bunch of shorts and this is a review of two of them (more reviews … Continue reading

ABCs of Death 2 (2014)

The horror anthology is a staple in the genre and dominated the landscape in the 1960s and 1970s. Some of my favorites are 1945s DEAD OF NIGHT, 1963s BLACK SABBATH, 1965s DR. TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS, 1971s THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, 1972s TALES FROM THE CRYPT and ASYLUM, and 1975s TRILOGY OF TERROR, but this … Continue reading

The Minions (2014) & Berenice (2014)

Here’s two more shorts, both directed by AnythingHorror.com fav Jeremiah Kipp, that I recently watched. Kipp has become a filmmaker I greatly respect. He dares take on material that sometimes straddles the horror genre and Kipp has a way of documenting the beauty that lies in the horrifying. The first short film, THE MINIONS, does … Continue reading

See No Evil 2 (2014)

In 2006 the slasher film SEE NO EVIL produced by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and distributed by Lionsgate hit screens in the U.S. On an estimated budget of $8mil, the film opened to a meager $4.5mil and went onto to earn a worldwide gross of around $18.5mil. Not exactly a Cinderella story, but not a failure … Continue reading

Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort (2014)

I think when it comes right down to it, everyone’s gotta have a guilty pleasure. What’s a guilty pleasure? I look at it as something we love even though we know it’s bad for us or at the very least we know it doesn’t do anything positive for us. It doesn’t matter what your guilty … Continue reading

Cabin Fever 3 banner

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)

In 2002 Eli Roth gave horror fans something to stand up and cheer about. Instead of the same tired slashers killing the same tired twenty-somethings in the same tired settings, Roth gave us a new kind of killer:  The flesh-eating disease. Still confusing to me today the horror community was split down the middle about … Continue reading
