The Shrine is the type of film that comes complete with lots of familiar horror tropes an avid genre lover will recognize.

You’ve got a remote village in a foreign land populated by strange people who raise an eyebrow or two thanks to their mysterious beliefs and practices. Scares, jumps, and mysteries abound as the protagonists attempt to make sense of it all.
Given those facts, the plotline of... 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.
The Bye Bye Man
The heroes Elliot (Douglas Smith), Sasha (Cressida Bonas) and John (Lucien Laviscount) are generally wooden in their acting, however they can most likely be excused for working with a dull plot and dreary discourse. They're additionally dominatingly TV performers, and not especially refined ones at that, so to seek after them to convey the motion picture is excessive.
Indeed, even the working of the Bye Man's legend does nothing for the watcher, since the figure of speech has been played out by such a large number of various films that have likewise improved (Candyman, anybody?). ... 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.
The fear present in The Babadook is almost unfounded. It's hard to remember the last time a potent, eerie mood piece fit this much terror within its walls - both physically and psychologically. Not that films today don't have the power of scaring their audience, it's just that the effect is surface-layer for the most part, easy to shake off because of a certain distance to be attained. In other words, the fear is so within its own horror genre that once taken out the fact that it's a film meant to scare, it does nothing. The Babadook masterfully allows everyone else currently making horror films to take note,... Read More
Paranolmal Activity: The Marked Ones
It would be a wild exaggeration to suggest that “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” breathes new life into the increasingly fumes-fueled found-footage horror subgenre, but it certainly represents a shot in the arm for this series after 2012’s poorly regarded “Paranormal Activity 4.” Functioning more as a mythology-expanding spinoff than a proper sequel, this fifth installment (the first directed by longtime series writer Christopher Landon) smartly moves the setting away from airy suburbs to overcrowded working-class apartments, and introduces a winning sense of humor that almost compensates for its relentless reliance on...

The year 1973 began and ended with cries of pain. It began with Ingmar Bergman’s “Cries and Whispers,” and it closed with William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist.” Both films are about the weather of the human soul, and no two films could be more different. Yet each in its own way forces us to look inside, to experience horror, to confront the reality of human suffering. The Bergman film is a humanist classic. The Friedkin film is an exploitation of the most fearsome resources of the cinema. That does not make it evil, but it does not make it noble, either.
There seems to be a never ending supply of Stephen King adaptations in the horror genre. Carrie (1976) and Misery (1990) both inspired by King’s writing are phenomenal horror films which have stood the test of time. However with greats like these there are also an abundance of averagely made films based on the master of horror’s writing. Mercy’s (2014) source comes from one of his short stories (originally titled Gramma) found in his collection Skeleton Crew published in 1985. Mercy tells the story of a young boy George (Chandler Riggs, Walking Dead) who has a close bond with his grandma named Mercy (Shirley Knight).... Read More
Linda Blair interview, she talks about Devil
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
