Movies in the Horror genre

Get Out

Get Out is a horror film but it’s not like any horror film that has reached theaters in a long time. To begin with, it’s rated R, and the R-rated horror film has become something of an endangered species in this era of PG-13’ing everything. The...

Ghost House

Ghost House is a generally well-made but ultimately unsurprising excursion into the supernatural. Although more interested in psychological terror than a high body count, the film touches enough of the expected tropes that horror fans will be ...

Ghostbusters

Let me begin this review of the 2016 Ghostbusters remake by pretending there was no 1984 iteration. How enjoyable would the film be if it didn’t have such enormous baggage, if it didn’t emerge under the long shadow of a beloved predecesso...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Get ready for a deep dive into nostalgia. Ghostbusters: Afterlife, although boasting a next generation of Ghostbusters, works best for those who have seen (and at least somewhat remember) the original two Ivan Reitman films from the ‘80s. Althou...

Goosebumps

At a guess, I'd say that Goosebumps will satisfy its core audience - fans of R.L. Stine's popular children's books - and bore pretty much everyone else. The film, which captures the feel if not the full charm of the written stories, comes...

Greta

Remember the rash of ‘80s/‘90s thrillers about psycho friends/lovers who turned out to be stalkers? The most prominent of those was probably Fatal Attraction, but it was by no means the only one. Greta seeks to exhume the skeleton of that...

H20

Has it really been twenty years since John Carpenter's low-budget chiller, Halloween, hit the nation's screens and paved the way for a decade's worth of bloody slasher movies? To date, the original Halloween has been one of the few entries into ...

Halloween

In late 1978, a small horror film opened in Bowling Green, Kentucky (before moving on to Chicago and New York City) that would change the face of the genre. Initially dismissed by many serious critics as unworthy of attention or praise, the motion...

Halloween

When it comes to remakes, I no longer ask "why?" but merely accept the inevitable. The reason always has more to do with greed and a lack of originality than a desire to re-create something out of affection or as an homage. To a certain extent, a ...
