“Hereditary” is a literally "homemade" horror. The physical home, as a place of family life and as creative microcosm of Annie, and the metaphysical home, as a dreamlike symbol of the stability or instability of the Ego, are inextricably intertwined in a game of Chinese boxes : a husband , a son, a daughter, and a miniaturist job she loves. But also a bulky mother: Ellen.
Annie has always been trying to fix her "home": and soon we realize that something, in addition to the ambivalent relationship between her and the now defunct Ellen, does not work. Starting from Charlie, an... Read More
What horror fan doesn’t love a good haunted house story – especially one based on real people, places, and events? That’s Winchester in a nutshell.
If you’ve ever been to San Jose’s Winchester Mystery House (or heard of it), then you’re already somewhat familiar with the backstory to Winchester. Also known as “the house that ghosts built”, the Winchester Mystery House was built by Sarah Winchester, widow of William Winchester, inventor of the famous rifle. After her husband and daughter both pass away, the grieving Sarah becomes convinced that she’s... Read More
"Annabelle: Creation" falls in accordance with the advanced awfulness wave. It's the fourth film in "The Conjuring" serie — and the second spinoff to focus on Annabelle, a freaky-looking doll that resembles the Victorian-period cousin of "Child's Play's" Chucky — and it has every one of the components of a contemporary frightfulness hit, including the frightening doll, the spooky (or spooked out) kids and the house that is too huge not to be alarming during the evening.
I’d be remiss not mention Jena Malone’s performance, which many will likely call “brave” and provocative for one scene in particular, but she deserves credit for the less flashy scenes as well. At any given moment the supporting women threaten to steal the movie from the protagonist, which is ironic considering the narrative. Needless to say everyone is well cast, even Reeves who provides much needed humour and levity just by being there.
The Neon Demon is not for the faint of heart (or those with a sensitivity to strobing... Read More
In my opinion, it seemed to keep a little history of Amityville. They used a Ouija board like back in the old Amityville Horror movie. This movie had hardly anything to do with Amityville except that it was in Amityville, NY. Other than that, this had really nothing to do with the history of the house at all. The soundtrack and music in the movie should have had some trace back to Amityville with as far as the theme. Some parts were cool and crazy. Altogether, this movie was ok. That is my review. It is short because I have nothing much else to say.
Dr Henry West (William Mapother) is the cheif researcher of the Atticus Institute, a small group dedicated to the investigation of psychic phenomena during the mid 1970s.

Filmmaker Sam Raimi is most famous for his early movies in The Evil Dead series and for the blockbuster Spider-Man movies. Raimi is known as a movie enthusiast who began making his own movies before he was a teenager. In 1978 he and some friends, including actor Bruce Campbell, made Within the Woods, a short horror film they used to raise money to make a feature. For a few hundred thousand dollars, they made The Evil Dead, an over-the-top horror movie that got raves at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival and has since become a cult favorite. Raimi's distinctive visual style and the success of The Evil Dead 2 (1987) led to his first... Read More
Linda Blair began modeling when she was five years old. By her teens she had started acting on television and movies, and before she was 14 she had already taken her most famous role: that of Regan, the demon-possessed child in the 1972 film The Exorcist (co-starring Max von Sydow). The film became a horror classic, and Linda Blair was Oscar-nominated as best supporting actress for the role. She also appeared four years later in the sequel, and starred in the campy cult favorite Roller Boogie in 1979. Since then Blair has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows, performed on Broadway (in Grease as Rizzo), and is a well-known... Read More
