You're Not Alone

Ever have the feeling that... YOU'RE NOT ALONE? Brand new to video-on-demand services this last week is this mysterious new horror-thriller written by Andrew Wong and directed by Eduardo Rodriguez that tells a super creepy story with some totally unpredictable twists. The story follows the life of Emma (excellently played by Katia Winter) whose ex-husband recently passed away, and she inherits everything: the big beautiful house, the possessions kept within and even their daughter - Isla (Leya Catlett) - that Emma hasn't even seen since her birth. Emma's ex kept their daughter from her - for good reasons the film will explain - but now that time has passed and Emma's had time to learn and gr

31 Weeks to Halloween: House of Dracula (1945)

Horror upon Horror in the House of Dracula! As the sun sets on another Saturday, we come just one more film closer to the end of our 31 Weeks to Halloween countdown. And this weeks movie - HOUSE OF DRACULA - is a bittersweet one mainly because the film is the last of the classic Universal Monsters movies to feature three of the most beloved monsters in all of history: Dracula, The Wolf Man and Frankenstein's Monster! While the three creatures make an appearance three years later in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (which we will be getting to!), Erle C. Kenton's House of Dracula is the final main franchise film that the monsters bring their haunts to. The film is a direct sequel to Hous

Open 24 Hours

For some, packing their shit and moving to the other side of the country is the best way to get a fresh start. For others, it's simply starting a new job and slowly getting back out into the world. In Padraig Reynolds' horror flick OPEN 24 HOURS, the main character Mary is willing to take any job, she just wants to put her past behind her and start over. But when she starts her new job working the graveyard shift at a 24 hour gas station in the middle of nowhere, she never would have guessed that paranoia would bring her serial killer ex-boyfriend right there into the store with her... it is just her paranoia, right?! Reynolds wrote and directed this unsettling and disturbing film that has b

31 Weeks to Halloween: The Mummy's Curse (1944)

Resurrected in horror! Rising out of death! Egypt's ancient lovers live again in evil to fulfill the Mummy's Curse! For the last few weeks, as part of our countdown to Halloween series, we've seen quite a few Mummy films - this weeks film being the fifth of the franchise. The original Mummy film debuted in 1932, however the last three of these films were all sequels (and part of a continuing story) of the 1940 film, The Mummy's Hand. But this week, that storyline comes to a close as THE MUMMY'S CURSE closes out the Mummy storyline and finally lays to rest the ongoing terrifying tale of Kharis and his Princess Ananka. The Mummy's Hand, quite honestly, doesn't really tell a story we haven't se

Host

What the world is going through right now is insane; Covid has consumed the way we do everything from working and eating to entertainment and socializing. Fear of the virus has been keeping people locked away in their homes doing their best to avoid public gatherings, and one of the best ways to pass the time when your city is in lockdown is obviously video-chatting with your friends! Writers Gemma Hurley, Rob Savage, and Jed Shepherd took quarantine one step further these last few months and turned their lockdown due to Covid-19 into the basis of their new hit horror film HOST which was released on Shudder on July 30th. Savage directed the found footage horror film and the team all worked f

31 Weeks to Halloween: The House of Frankenstein (1944)

Hordes of horror spawned by the devil... now all together in one horrific picture! It's always a good weekend when we kick it off with a Frankenstein movie as a part of our 31 Weeks to Halloween countdown. But this week, things are a little extra awesome since the movie we're checking out - HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN - somehow contains not only the Monster, but Dracula, the Wolf Man, and even a mad doctor and a hunchback! It's pure monster mayhem as all five creatures have plenty of on screen time, and the plot creatively ties all of them together into a fantastic story. Monster mash-ups are always an absolute treat, and as we previously saw with Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, it works so damn

Monstrous

Long time readers of Soulless Cult know that if you throw Bigfoot into a horror movie, I'm going to watch it, and no matter how shitty it is, I'm going to love it. That has pretty much always been the case until now, when I stumbled upon what turned out to be a monstrosity of a movie called MONSTROUS. After checking out the synopsis and the trailer, I honestly thought I was going to love the film and it honestly pains me to say I struggled to keep my eyes open the last fifteen minutes, and that's the only part of the movie where things actually pick up. The film feels ambitious, but honestly the whole thing just feels like it didn't know what it wanted to be. It feels like Bigfoot is randoml

31 Weeks to Halloween: The Mummy's Ghost (1944)

No chains can hold it! No tomb can seal it! The year 1944 was a pretty huge one for Universal Pictures and the Monsters; four new monster movies hit theaters in just a seven month period from June to December, and two of those were Mummy movies! The first of which was THE MUMMY'S GHOST, which is the first of two sequels to The Mummy's Tomb which we just recently checked out a couple Saturday's ago. The Mummy's Tomb was an extraordinary sequel to one of the major films, and I honestly had no idea there were follow-up films to it! The legendary Lon Chaney, Jr. reprised his role as Kharis - The Mummy - and along with it, the iconic and horrifying look, movement, and misunderstood terror that he

Blood Vessel

War horror movies have been popping up pretty frequently the last few years, with films like Overlord, Ghosts of War, and Werewolves of the Third Reich, and I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of this genre of horror, but after seeing the trailer for BLOOD VESSEL, I instantly knew this movie was going to be on my watch-list. After all, what could possibly go wrong with soldiers hopping aboard an Nazi ghost ship in the middle of the nowhere?! Little did they know, the ship wasn't inhabited by ghosts or even zombies... this ship has vampires! Director Justin Dix co-wrote the film alongside Jordan Prosser and they brought along a totally bad fuckin' ass cast to portray the soldiers, who were st

31 Week to Halloween: The Invisible Man's Revenge (1944)

THEY'RE MARKED...for DEATH! By now in our countdown to Halloween of Universal Monsters movies, we've hit the year 1944 and we've already seen four Invisible Man movies: The Invisible Man, The Invisible Man Returns, The Invisible Woman and Invisible Agent. In 1944, however, the studio came out with another Invisible Man film - The Invisible Man's Revenge - which debuted to some mixed reviews since it, essentially, utilizes the same special effects as all the previous films in the series. Five movies in eleven years which pretty much all show the same thing can be argued as overkill to audiences - but if the story is entertaining and the use of flying objects can be creative enough, there's no
