Welp, summer is already out the door - how did that happen so fast? No matter, we're heading into fall, which we all know is a horror fan's favorite time of year. And the Blu-rays are going to be treats indeed! September has a few very cool movies in the offing, including an upgrade of CHILDREN OF THE CORN , the under-seen Sean Byrne thriller THE DEVIL'S CANDY , and the documentary...

mother! (Movie Review)

PLOT: A woman's tranquil life with her husband is shattered when a series of uninvited guests arrive at their country house and make themselves at home. REVIEW: I'll be honest: I don't know what mother! is all about. Not exactly, anyway. This movie is neck-deep in metaphorical symbolism, with almost everything that happens in it open to interpretation. There will be some who...

Exclusive images from Friend Request starring Alycia Debnam-Carey

Fear the Walking Dead star Alycia Debnam-Carey gets her own big-screen horror franchise with FRIEND REQUEST , a film that warns of the dangers of deleting that annoying friend on Facebook. The movie's lesson: Doing that might cause said annoying friend to take their own life and subsequently haunt you and your pals via social media. Best to just put them on mute. To get you...

IT (Movie Review)

PLOT: Seven young friends learn their town is cursed by a demonic entity that feasts on children. REVIEW: Longtime fans of Stephen King 's 1986 opus IT needn't worry: This film has honored the text and brought it to life in most impressive fashion. IT gets just about everything right, from the casting of its young protagonists, The Losers Club, to the chilly atmosphere of a...

Would Don Mancini and Brad Dourif ever pass Chucky on to someone else?

Don Mancini is in a unique position as a screenwriter. The creator of CHILD'S PLAY and villainous doll Chucky, Mancini has been a writer on all seven of the series' films, including the latest - CULT OF CHUCKY - which comes out on Blu-ray/VOD October 3rd. It's pretty rare that one person is in complete control (by Hollywood standards, anyway) of a franchise the way...

Powerful trailer for Joachim Trier's supernatural thriller Thelma

Norway's official Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film this year is an unusual one: THELMA , a supernatural thriller about a young woman discovering powers she never knew she had. I was lucky enough to get a look at the film early, and while I can't say too much about it yet, I will simply urge you to keep an eye on this title when it's released in a couple of months, if for no...

Haunters: The Art of the Scare trailer looks at haunted house creators!

As you're well aware by now, it's September. Fall is creeping up on us slowly but surely (for some, it's already here), and for horror fans that can only mean one thing: Halloween is not far behind! One very enjoyable part of the fall season is the annual emergence of haunted houses. From homemade to large-scale, from family-friendly to over-the-line, every city in the country...

Exclusive international poster for Rift, from the director of Child Eater

RIFT (Rökkur) is Icelandic director Erlingur Thoroddsen's follow-up to his feature debut CHILD EATER , which was released earlier this year. You may not have heard of this film yet, but it should be making waves pretty soon: It was just announced that it will be playing Fantastic Fest in Austin later this month, in addition to the Brooklyn Horror and New Orleans Film Festivals. RIFT...

Michelle Pfeiffer confronts Jennifer Lawrence in mother! clip

Lots of questions swirl around Darren Aronofsky's new horror film mother! Like, why is the title all lower case letters with an exclamation point at the end, and is it a quasi-remake of Roman Polanski's ROSEMARY'S BABY? Before we can start getting answers, we'll have to keep on theorizing. Thanks to a new clip released by Paramount, we've got one more clue to work with. In the...

Long-awaited Halloween slasher Hellfest finally has a release date

HELLFEST has sure had a hell of a time reaching the big screen. We first wrote about the Halloween slasher back in July of 2011 , when it was announced Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) would be producing the film. Since then, the film has gone through numerous directors, including Neil Marshall and Jennifer Lynch. It was only earlier this year that it gained its first serious...
