the deep house images

Aquatic horror is often fantastic, and the upcoming movie The Deep House sounds like a great addition to the subgenre. The film hails from the directors of the brutal French home invasion movie Inside, and seems to be a blend of both underwater horror and a haunted house story. The film follows some YouTubers who discover a submerged house. Once inside, things don’t go so well. Some gorgeous, spooky images from The Deep House await you below, so take a deep breath and dive in.

new halloween kills image

Michael Myers is back, and he’s looking a little crispy in a new Halloween Kills image. The sequel to 2018’s Halloween once again pits the Shape against the Strode ladies – Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak). When we last left Michael, he was presumed dead, burned alive in Laurie’s house. But as every single film in this franchise has taught us, Micahel Myers always comes back. See the latest Halloween Kills image below.

The Djinn Review

Writer/director duo David Charbonier and Justin Powell know how to get straight to the point without extracting any key elements that comprise an entertaining horror film. Their debut film The Boy Behind the Door was a terrifying and realistic depiction of friendship withstanding a traumatic childhood abduction. This year, the talented pair push the envelope with their sophomore film, The Djinn, by exploring guilt and familial love through a supernatural framework.

Director Darren Lynn Bousman didn’t create Saw, but he arguably defined it. Following the success of the first film, Bousman was handed the reins of the series and transformed it into a decade-defining horror franchise with Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV. The elements we remember most – the increasingly gruesome traps, the ensemble of victims ensnared in a series of brutal challenges, the shockingly tight continuity – were all born on his watch.

And after over a decade away from the world of Jigsaw, Bousman is back with Spiral: From the Book of Saw. Less of a direct sequel and more of a separate story set in the world of the previous films, the ninth entry in the series is a police procedural starring Chris Rock as a detective on the trail of a Jigsaw copycat killer targeting cops. This new approach allowed Bousman to make a Saw movie without making a Saw movie, keeping just enough to tie the film to the larger franchise while forging its own identity.

/Film sat down with Bousman to discuss the meeting with Chris Rock that got him back in the director’s chair, the film’s big shift in style from the rest of the series, and the one scene that had to be trimmed to appease the MPAA.

army of the dead opening

You can now watch the best part of Army of the Dead – the opening 15 minutes. That includes a damn great opening credits scene, something that Zack Snyder seems to specialize in (remember how cool those Watchmen opening credits were? I do). Whatever you might say of his films, the man knows how to stage some opening credits. Snyder’s zombie heist flick opens in select theaters this week before hitting Netflix next week, but if you can’t wait that long, this might hold you over.

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: With the impending continuation of the Saw franchise only days away, Chris and I are highlighting twists and murderous mysteries within horror’s imprisonment. You’ll hear things like “reminiscent of Clue” or “out of left field,” because what is horror without suspense? A horror comedy. Alright. BUT STILL. Horror hinged on whodunit intrigue sustains the cat-and-mouse chase of unidentifiable slashers or creatures of unknown origins. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll glimpse a hybrid of Murder On The Orient Express and A Nightmare On Elm Street. Keep me guessing, keep me happy!

Chris: What a twist! Now Scream This is back with some horror movies with big twists to pay tribute to Saw, since, as I’m sure you know, Spiral: From the Book of Saw is about to open and unleash all new twists and turns. I tried not to be too obvious with my picks – The Sixth Sense is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, but c’mon, you know that one already. Anyway, since we’re dealing with twist movies here, I’ll try not to be too spoilery. But I can make no promises.

the forever purge trailer

The Purge film franchise is coming to an end (for now) with The Forever Purge. This fifth and final entry is set after the Purge has been abolished – but that’s not going to stop a group of people from staging their own Purge. After all, if it did, there wouldn’t be much of a movie. Franchise creator James DeMonaco wrote the script, while Everardo Gout directs. Watch The Forever Purge trailer below.

spiral from the book of saw review

Serial killer Jigsaw is long dead but his lust for Rube Goldberg-like torture devices lives on in Spiral: From the Book of Saw, the ninth installment in the seemingly never-ending Saw series. But in many respects, Spiral feels like a sequel in name only. Hell, take that Book of Saw subtitle away and you have less of a Saw movie and more of a serial killer thriller that seems to be cribbing, badly, from Seven and its many knock-offs. Spiral has the unique distinction of featuring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson, two of the biggest stars to ever grace this film series. But those hoping their star power will lend Spiral weight are in for a rude awakening.
