HORROR THURSDAY: 13 SINS

Daniel Stamm, the writer/director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, returns to film with another twisted spin on a well-worn horror trope. This time, we’re dealing with the psychopath’s game on a far more misanthropic level. Elliot Brindle, soon to […]

HORROR THURSDAY: THE CALL OF CTHULHU

H.P. Lovecraft’s work proves a challenge for adaptation. His particular brand of weird fiction is so psychological and driven by dream logic that creating a concrete representation of his vision can result in a rather unbelievable (or even uninspiring) cinematic […]

HORROR THURSDAY: DIABOLIQUE

Diabolique (or Les Diaboliques, as both titles were used in America at different times) is the epitome of a slow burn horror. Things go from bad to worse to disastrous in just under two hours bit by bit. You think […]

HORROR THURSDAY: CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE

Val Lewton was only ever involved in one sequel to his amazing run of intense, moody horror films in the 1930s/40s. That sequel was Curse of the Cat People. It has…very little to do with the original film. The cast […]

HORROR THURSDAY: THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF ROSALIND LEIGH

In his feature film debut, writer/director Rodrigo Gudiño crafts a profoundly weird and unsettling experience. The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh doesn’t really follow any of the rules of film, playing more like a literal translation of a […]

HORROR THURSDAY: MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE

In 1986, history was made. The only film ever directed by horror master Stephen King was released and it’s a doozy. I don’t think anyone anticipated the creator of Carrie and The Shining directing a schlocky horror comedy film. It’s […]

HORROR THURSDAY: AFTER DEATH

After Death is a strange horror film. It feels like what would happen if Greta Gerwig asked Miranda July to direct her original ghost story about British hipsters coping with death. Surely there is a target audience for such an […]
