Burt and his sidekick run from danger

Ridiculous monster movies are all the rage these days and so, after an eleven year hiatus, the Tremors franchise has been given new life via the straight-to-video Tremors 5: Bloodlines. Kids today may have their Sharknadoes and their Crocosauruses, but for those of us who grew up in the 90s, the Graboids of Tremors will always hold a special place of importance.

Numero uno on almost any guy's sexual bucket list is likely a good ol' menage a trois. Ladies, if you're man tells you the opposite, he's lying. Thus ends this week's relationship FAQs from Luke. However, those carnal fantasies likely don't involve one of the three participants to be the reanimated corpse of your dead ex like in Nina Forever, the debut feature from Ben and Chris Blaine. 

In this 2014 Belgium outing, young Sam is a Pathfinder scout, heading out for a camping trip near the French border with his troop. Sam is an over imaginative and awkward youth, who is frequently picked on by his troop, and even the leader.  In addition to those anxieties, Sam is tortured by a story told by his troop leaders about Kai, a wild child that that haunts the woods at night and turns into a werewolf.  Once the troop arrives and the campout begins, Sam soon discovers that the the urban legend of Kai might not be an urban legend at all.

Very few movie franchises have staying power – but when they do, they rarely fail to entertain. Bride of Chucky was released in 1998 and even upon viewing in 2015 still delivers the laughs and bloody cringes.

I'm not entirely sure if mumblecore is still a "thing," but if it is, no horror movie deserves that label quite like Perry Blackshear's feature length debut They Look Like People. No matter what side of the fence you fall on in regards to the mumblecore movement this psychological horror thriller is likely to find an audience that's willing to appreciate its nuances- but what a small niche it'll be.

With a number of unoriginal exorcism flicks plaguing the theaters as of late it is evident now more than ever that the genre needs a swift kick in the balls. The question being, where do we start? At this point it seems like almost everything that can be done has be done- or has it? Ava's Possessions has emerged from the dark corner of exorcism cliches to deliver something that's at the very least different even if it's probably not the savior of the genre.
