Keeping up with the theme of exorcisms this week, I finally got the chance to check out THE DAWN - written by Brandon Slagle and Elliot Diviney, and directed by Slagle. It's a dark, subtly twisted film that spends the majority of its time in a convent surrounded by nuns and priests; you know a movie is going to be worth your time when it has possessed nuns, and The Dawn happily delivers. What it also delivers is an ending you absolutely will not see coming, and it's one that definitely nods its head to a horror great. The Dawn was an unexpected gem I stumbled upon on vide...

It's a good day for an exorcism, am I right?! Every year we are met with numerous exorcism movies that can be hit or miss, but unfortunately, most of them usually miss. Either they try too hard to recreate a modern era version of The Exorcist or they have a story that's just all over the place (but usually with some sick visuals). New to video on demand services is THE ASSENT - a film written and directed by Pearry Reginald Teo - which is neither of those; it take the exorcism genre and blends it with psychological thriller elements that make for a rather fun watch. And t...

Before The Witch even hit nationwide theaters back in 2016, the horror community was ranting and raving about the period piece, saying it was one of the better independent films to come out in years. That proved to be true - at least in my opinion - and so when word broke out that director Robert Eggers had written another film alongside his brother Max, I just knew it was going to be something wicked. And around Halloween last year, we finally got the movie we've been waiting for: The Lighthouse, which stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as two lighthouse keeper...

Horror movies and technology seem to go hand-in-hand; I'm guessing it's because of the close relationship the genre has with sci-fi. Over the last few decades, we've seen plenty of films that utilize technology to help push the story and assist its characters. Such is definitely the case with APPARITION - which was released in the final days of 2019: it sees its main story driven by the use of an app (appropriately named Apparition) which uses the help of the dearly departed to help show the user a message from beyond the grave. Even though the movie shares the name of th...

I'm a sucker for movies with giant, oversized versions of animals or giant animals fighting; I blame my early love affair with Godzilla films for this sick obsession. So when I stumbled upon a movie simply titled BOAR, you know I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into it. Judging by the trailer and the brief synopsis on the listing, Boar sounded like a fairly simple story: a tremendous pig terrorizes a bunch of people in the Australian outback. And wouldn't you know it... that's exactly what the film entails and it is fucking phenomenal in almost every way. If you're a...
