Classic Movie Of The Week 2017

Classic Movie Of The Week: The Haunting (1963)

Starring: Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson, Russ Tamblyn Director: Robert Wise After the slick horror films of recent years, this film feels like a creeping, insidious thriller, a throwback to another time, and relies on story and character for chills as much as unsettling visuals. This film is based on the classic book The… Continue reading Classic Movie Of The Week: The Haunting (1963)

Within aka Crawlspace (2016)

Starring: Michael Vartan, Erin Moriarty, Nadine Velasquez, Blake Jenner Director: Phil Claydon Michael Vartan (Alias) and Erin Moriarty (Captain Fantastic, Blood Father) are the stars in this fairly standard haunted house style horror.

Horror Round-Up: Psychics, Psychotics and Unexplained Epidemics…

The Dead Room (2015) A solid entry, this New Zealand horror is all about the atmosphere and the slow build, as a psychic and two scientists investigate an isolated farm house that the inhabitants have fled, due to it's being haunted.

Ouija: Origin Of Evil (2016)

Starring: Annalise Basso, Elizabeth Reaser, Lulu Wilson, Henry Thomas Director: Mike Flanagan Ouija, the original film in what looks like will be a series, was an alright horror film. Sure, it had plot holes so big you could hide a body in, and acting that was at times laughable, but I really didn't care. It… Continue reading Ouija: Origin Of Evil (2016)

Ghostbusters (2016)

Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth Director: Paul Feig Has another film been more controversial this year? Off the top of my head, this is the big one. And for the weirdest reason. It's Ghostbusters, but the four main characters are female comedians instead of male. That's it. There are… Continue reading Ghostbusters (2016)

(But do anyway) We Still Live Here (2015) Probably my favourite on the list, this involves a recently bereaved, middle aged couple moving into a… Continue reading Horror Movie Round Up: Strange Children, Haunted Houses and Psychic Experiments.
