Top 10 Jaws Rip-Offs!

Holy T.S. Quint! Can you believe JAWS turns 40 years old next June? Fucking crazy, despite how timeless the infamously-difficult-to-make Spielberg classic still feels all these years later. Let's be real, JAWS is not only a master-class in first rate filmmaking, remember, it also spawned the modern day blockbuster - which doubles its importance when discussing the annals of cinematic impact....

Top 10 Murderous Monkey Movies!

As you must know by now, Matt Reeves' DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES launches its full-out assault on the masses today. And you know what? Little Caesar looks more vengeful than a wronged Game of Thrones character, doesn't he? Just a seething caldron of primal rage, that little f*cker is! But hey, no biggie, it's hardly the first time we've seen a psychotic simian with a lust for human blood...

Top 10 Genre Movie Cops!

How many of you are pumped to peep Eric Bana kicks some supernatural ass in DELIVER US FROM EVIL next week? We are for sure...especially considering how the Scott Derickson flick is based on an actual NYPD case file. F*cking craziness! In the flick, Bana plays a New York cop who must team up with a priest who has intimate knowledge on all things exorcism related, in order to solve a rash of...

Top 10 Friday the 13th Movies (Ranked!)

AHHHH YAY-UHH! Today's the day, friends. The annual unofficial horror holiday...FRIDAY THE 13TH! Halloween notwithstanding, this has to be the best day of the year for horror fans, right? That is, unless you have a problem with my man Voorhees and his ruthless day of reckoning. If so, get the fuck out of here Jack, we don't need your kind. We're all about the hockey mask around here, and...

Top 10 Time Travel Thrillers!

What is it about time travel that makes for such entertaining cinema? Is it the uncertainty? The wonderment? The endless possibilities? The innate desire to move up and down, backwards and forwards through our own personal chronology? The ability to change the past and alter the future? Whatever the fascination, time travel has been a staple of movie plots for almost as long as the medium has...

Top 10 So Bad They're Good Genre Flicks!

Damn, doesn't it seem like the summer blockbuster season starts earlier and earlier with each passing year?!? Here were are, it's only mid-May, yet we're already plunged dick deep in the time of mega-studio-tent-poles. Oh well, you know what that means, right? Yup, this where the so-bad-they're-good candidates of the year typically rear their ugly little heads. Off the dome, that Sandler...

Top 10 Australian Sci-fi/Horror Flicks!

Quick, what's the last good Australian horror flick you caught? Better yet, what's your all time favorite genre joint imported from the land down under? Can you think of one? I only dare ask because, being such a big fan of Greg McClean's singeing '05 flick WOLF CREEK, we're not only keen to celebrate the history of horror born in the land of Oz, but drum up a little pub for WOLF CREEK 2 as...

Top 10 Sexy Alien Chicks!

Ever since being hypnotized by Scarlett Johansson's coldly detached, yet oddly arousing turn as an alien seductress in UNDER THE SKIN, I just can't think of much else. And not just her, but her ilk. I immediately got to thinking about all the sexy alien chicks that have graced the screen over the years, comparing and contrasting the various iterations, deciphering what has worked well, what...

Top 10 Horror/Sci-fi/Thrillers to Look Forward to This Summer!

Holy hell, can you believe it's already April? F*cking insane right. However, one of the good things about time marching on and the seasonal change is, we're that much closer to kicking-off the summer blockbuster slate. Now, we typically tend to champion smaller, independent, non-studio fare when it comes to genre material, but let's be frank, we have some serious firepower hitting the...

Top 10 Airplane Thrillers!

So, Malaysia Flight MH370? WTF?! No doubt one of the most captivating, mystifying, terrifying...not to mention unprecedented real life scenarios- one plucked right out of a Twilight Zone episode - to ever materialize (or vanish) in front of the world stage. So many theories, so many possibilities, so little (deliberate) information and evidence actually divulged. Unreal. But with all the...

Top 10 Maniacal Mothers!

Maniacal mothers...the stuff of cinematic legend! Think about it, some of the most memorable characters to ever grace the screen happen to be woefully wicked matriarchs, be they in the horror genre or not. Why do you think that is? Perhaps it's the subversion of expectation. We normally associate motherhood with nurturing, caring, overprotection, life-giving and the like...so when those...
