Tight quarters, creepy crawlers and isolation in a place where there is no hope of rescue is a perfect recipe for horror. Space is the perhaps the setting that checks off those boxes with the boldest pencil marks. It avoids the cell phone trap and creates an area of pure unadulterated mystery where anything is possible. It’s the perfect canvas to paint a masterpiece of horror. Problem is; it’s a well-used one.

Richard Gere attempts to solve the mystery of the Mothman in The Mothman Prophecies

There are things humans aren’t meant to know. What the future has in store, for one. How many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, for another. Pursuing answers to these mysteries has a way of leading people into the clutches of winged creatures who promise answers but whose motivations are far from pure. For John Klein (Richard Gere) and the residents of Point Pleasant, WV, the penalty for their misplaced trust could prove far worse than watching as a mean-spirited owl steals their candy.

At this point, it is unlikely that the name or even the plot of this movie will be unknown to our readers. Even outside of the horror community, the well-known American remake of this Japanese film became an incredibly ubiquitous piece of pop culture. The story of a VHS tape that leaves a string of bodies in its wake and the soggy girl who comes for its viewers has been parodied to the point that it has lost most of its punch. But the fact remains that Ringu was and is an important film both in Japan and everywhere.

Trey Edward Shults’s sophomore feature It Comes at Night trades in the Cassavetes ala Carpenter aesthetics of his debut Krisha to join the ranks of morose, contemplative post-collapse fiction.

Get the Girl Review

When a shy guy wants to impress the girl of his dreams, he naturally hires a cooler guy to kidnap said girl, right?

Anyone else feeling that strong need for our old buddy? Where's Cooper?

There’s a moment during the 2017 reboot of The Mummy where Russell Crowe - transforming from Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde - turns gray. Not misshapen, or any larger than his human self, just gray. One could say he even looks a bit moldy, kind of like Sofia Boutella’s 900-year old mummified Princess Ahmanet. If anything, Hyde’s complexion is a good indication of the film’s overall stale riffs on the Boris Karloff classic, and the dim-witted yet enthralling Brendan Fraser spin-off of the 90s. It’s old and not getting fresh anytime soon.

Far and wide. That's how far you'll have to look for someone who does not have at least some association with the words, Mortal Kombat. Of that large sample size you might find a larger ratio that had no idea there was a movie adaptation--plus a sequel. There are a couple of reasons for that. Hipster culture hasn't quite ruined that nostalgic sub-sector and secondly, there are so few of us that still look back with rose colored glasses at the Paul W.S. Anderson joint.
