the forever purge first look

Once upon a time, The Purge franchise felt like it existed wholly in the realm of fiction. But in the years since the first film has been released, The Purge‘s imagery of American run wild has begun to feel uncomfortably prescient. And in the wake of yesterday’s horrific attack on the US Capitol, anything Purge-related is probably going to come across as extra disturbing. But Blumhouse is invested in the franchise, and they already have a new Purge title in the can – The Forever Purge. The sequel was supposed to hit theaters last year but ended up being delayed due to COVID-19, but now it’s due out this year. And we have the first image and real plot details to go with it.

malignant rating

James Wan last released horror movie was 2016’s The Conjuring 2 – but he already has his return to horror ready to go for 2021. It’s Malignant, a film that was initially set to open in 2020, until all that bad stuff happened to delay it. Malignant is now set to arrive in theaters and on HBO Max this year, and while we still have no idea what the damn movie’s about, we now know what it’s rated: R, for “Strong horror violence, gruesome images, and for language.” While Wan is the filmmaker who launched the blood-filled Saw franchise, most of his horror movies haven’t been abundantly gory, so it sounds like he’s got something special cooked up for horror fans here.

halloween kills images

I was disappointed by the delay of several different films due out in 2020, and Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho and David Gordon Green‘s Halloween Kills were both at the top of the list. Last Night in Soho was supposed to arrive in September 2020 but ended up being pushed to April 2021, and with the way things are going, there’s always a chance it gets bumped again. Halloween Kills, meanwhile, was slated for October 2020 but got shuffled to October 2021. I was a big fan of David Gordon Green’s Halloween, and I’m very curious to see where he goes with this sequel. And I’m always eager for new stuff from Wright, but I’m particularly excited about Last Night in Soho because it’s apparently Wright’s first straight-up horror movie.

Now, while we wait for these two horror titles to arrive, two new images give us glimpses at what’s to come.

army of the dead first look

Zack Snyder directs a zombie heist movie” is all the pitch that Netflix needed — and that most people will need — to jump on Army of the Dead, the upcoming horror film from the Batman v Superman director which stars Dave Bautista and Tig Notaro as members of a team who must infiltrate a Las Vegas casino during an undead uprising. Snyder has revealed two new images, and a few new details, from Army of the Dead. Take a look below. Read More »

the reckoning trailer

Neil Marshall made a splash in the early 2000s with the werewolf horror movie Dog Soldiers and the claustrophobic classic The Descent. But then the British filmmaker made his way over to TV, directing episodes of Westworld, Lost in Space, and most famously, Game of Thrones. His big-budget break wouldn’t be quite the success it was anticipated to be, with 2019’s Hellboy tanking both critically and commercially. But now Marshall is back in the good ol’ horror genre, with a supernatural horror flick titled The Reckoning starring the infamous Charlotte Kirk. Watch The Reckoning trailer below.

The 15 Best Horror Movies of 2020

Best Horror Movies of 2020

The very scary year that was 2020 is now over, but we’re not quite done with it just yet. While the movie release landscape was severely changed due to the coronavirus pandemic, several great horror movies managed to find their way to audiences. Below, we’ve rounded up the best of the best to countdown the 15 Best Horror Movies of 2020.

(Note: I would’ve loved to have included Saint Maud, a movie I saw in 2019, on this list. But while Saint Maud was released in the UK in 2020, its US release date remains in limbo. Because of that, I’m not including it here – even though it’s fantastic.)

Scariest Scene in His House

(Welcome to Scariest Scene Ever, a column dedicated to the most pulse-pounding moments in horror. In this edition: His House uses misdirection and unpredictability to create the year’s biggest scare.)

Remi Weekes’s feature debut uses horror to explore the anxieties, indignities, and trauma of the immigrant experience through a Sudanese couple’s lens. Weekes doesn’t hold back on the scares in this Netflix release. His House offers up one of the year’s most terrifying films, with the scares given just as much attention as the story. Rendering an already vulnerable couple even more so at the hands of a nightmarish figure that arrives each night to torment them, His House offers a unique, often heart wrenching twist on the haunted house format. 

The filmmaker’s ability to elicit tears and send shivers down your spine is remarkable, and never is the latter as evident as it is in the film’s most unnerving moment. Through atmosphere and misdirection, one night of emotional intensity crescendos into a waking nightmare with the ghastly arrival of an unwelcome specter.

chilling adventures of sabrina season 4 early buzz

The fourth and final season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has critics running both hot and cold. Much like how Sabrina Spellman was split into two personas in the Netflix teen horror drama, critics could not be more divided on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 4, which closes out the popular series this Thursday. Is it the best season yet, as a couple critics claim? Or is it a disappointing and “cheap” finale as a couple others say? Find out more with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina early buzz below.

resident evil reboot

There must be some level of irony around a video game movie about a deadly pandemic wrapping up production amid a real-life pandemic. But the context in which the new Resident Evil film has been filming is certainly not intentional, as the Johannes Roberts-helmed reboot is Sony and Constantin Film’s newest expansion of a film franchise that began with Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2002 film. Anderson would direct or co-write the next five films in the series, but he steps away from the franchise completely with the latest Resident Evil movie, which has no connections to the previous films and is on track to be released theatrically in 2021.
