Creep (2014) What do you do when you’re sick at home after the holidays? Watch a horror movie on Netflix to creep yourself out! Just the title of Creep was promising, so I gave the indie found footage film a whirl. Aaron (Patrick Brice, who co-wrote with Mark Duplass) is a cameraman who has accepted […]

The Babadook (2014) I don’t want to give too much away with this one, so this will be short and I’ll let you see The Babadook for yourself. I was lucky enough to see it in a single screen theatre in Los Angeles, introduced by William Friedkin—the one and only director of The Exorcist—who told […]

The Gift (2015) I’m glad I didn’t read much about The Gift before watching. It isn’t a horror film in the classic sense; there are very little scares. However, the film definitely has its horrifying moments, and I would certainly characterize it as a psychological thriller. Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall), who are living […]

The Blair Witch Project (1999) When the found-footage film The Blair Witch Project first opened in theaters, a rumor fueled by a remarkable marketing campaign gave the impression that the film was real footage recovered a year after the people in the movie had gone missing, making the movie all the more frightening for those […]

Killer Legends (2014) Joshua Zeman, creator of the Cropsey documentary, brings us a fascinating look at how four well-known urban legends originated.  Though through the years the details vary, the legends themselves remain the same. His question of “where did these legends come from?” is a valid one as he and his associate researcher Rachel […]

May (2002) May is a young veterinary technician who suffered a traumatic childhood due to a severe lazy eye; her mother forced her to cover it up and kids would not befriend her because of it. Her mother was rigid and instead of encouraging her to make real friends, she made her a doll that […]

The House of the Devil (2009) Ti West loves a slow build, and in The House of the Devil, he gets it just right. The film is set in the 1980s. The styling, the soundtrack, the atmosphere and even the credits of the movie were so well done that I checked three different times to make sure […]

Halloween (1978) John Carpenter’s Halloween is, hands down, my all-time favorite horror film. My mom made me watch it when I was in elementary school; she recognized the importance it had, and she had never truly been affected by a horror film the way she had been with Halloween when she saw it in the […]

IT FOLLOWS: FILM REVIEW

It Follows (2014) I’m going to get a lot of flak for this, but I don’t think It Follows necessarily deserved all of the praise that it got. David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows is an atmospheric supernatural horror film set in Michigan (my home state.) The beginning of the film was very promising; something seemed […]
