When talking about A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night last year, I said that director Ana Lily Amirpour is someone we’re excited to watch going forward. And we’re evidently not the only ones with confidence in her work. Her next film, The Bad Batch, is backed by Megan Ellison and Annapurna Productions, which immediately puts Amirpour in great company. The film already had Jason Momoa as a core member of the cast. And now The Bad Batch cast can announced a bunch of new names, including Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves. Read More »

UPDATE: We first posted an Insidious 3 trailer Monday, but that was released prematurely by the studio. The official version has now been released.
The second Insidious film was a bit of a disappointment. After the stellar, terrifying first film, the follow-up seemed to prioritize story over character and scares. Well, a new trailer for the third film, Insidious Chapter 3, heavily suggests this latest installment will fix that mistake.
Chapter 3 takes place before the first two films and explain how ghost hunter Elise (Lin Shaye) learns about The Further, the parallel dimension where the dead live and thrive. She does that via the plight of a young father (Dermot Mulroney) and his daughter (Stefanie Scott).
The latest Insidious 3 trailer is super creepy while really keeping the story hidden behind a bevy of scares, creatures and mood. It’s a great set up for what’s to come. Check out the Insidious Chapter 3 trailer , and new poster, below. Read More »

When you’re the most famous horror author of all time, you get a bunch of perks. One of which is sometimes you get to see major motion pictures seven months early with a plus one. I’m talking of course of Stephen King, who recently took to Twitter to heap praise on Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak, which he apparently had a chance to see in recent days. King’s son, accomplished author Joe Hill, also saw the film and he too had some wonderful things to say about the movie, which opens October 16. Read the Stephen King Crimson Peak reaction below.

Editor’s Note: This review originally ran during the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. We’re rerunning it now that It Follows is in limited release.
Sometimes, the scariest thing isn’t what’s around the corner. It’s what’s right in front of you. In It Follows, writer director David Robert Mitchell has created a simple, perfect, and bone-chillingly terrifying horror conceit that doesn’t need blood or jump scares. It doesn’t even, necessarily, need special effects. In It Follows a normal person, walking, is enough to scare the living crap out of you.
Below, read our It Follows review which will tell you why it’s one of the scariest horror films in years. Read More »

In a way, The Ring was its own prequel — much of the plot was devoted to figuring out the origins of the killer tape, and uncovering Samara’s tragic childhood in the process.

A new report indicates the upcoming Rings will be a prequel. F. Javier Gutiérrez is directing the new film with Matilda Lutz starring. Learn more about The Ring prequel after the jump. Read More »
