Decent scares are hard to come by, but Demian Rugna’s Terrified is a sure-fire bet for even the most hardened of
There’s a lot of BS floating around just now regarding the writing credit on William Barrett’s directorial debut Temple. If you’re to believe the posters, Temple is the latest potentially lucrative film from the mind of Simon Barrett, writer behind The Guest, You’re Next, and last year’s surprise Blair Witch sequel.
Firstborn, the debut feature from Nirpal Bhogal, is a surprisingly effective hark-back to supernatural domestic thrillers of the 70s.

Can you really watch another hour and twenty minutes of screaming in the dark? Thankfully, the Peruvian feature (not to be confused with the superb 1982 Barbara Hershey film) does have enough interesting ideas […]
Humberto Rosa and Thairon Mendes’ found footage horror Invoked is a surprisingly effective . Rosa’s script, co-written by Aaron Gibson, is short and sweet, hits all the bases of a typical haunted house horror, but still packs a punch.
Hellions, the latest from Canadian director Bruce McDonald is overwhelmingly disappointing considering how impressive his 2008 horror venture Pontypool was. On
