Sinister is scary. I don’t know. Maybe the timing was right, but I got creeped out. Most of the time I watch horror movies either in my garage bar or in my basement with the lights off. I watched this one in my basement and was pleasantly surprised by how much I was creeped out. My basement is definitely the better option if I want to freak myself out.
Moving into a new house is usually a joyous occasion. That joy quickly vanished when on the second night in her newly built home just outside of Fargo, North Dakota, Lisa noticed something unusual on her baby cam.
I didn’t make it to the theater for Krampus so I decided to get my holiday horror fill by watching A Christmas Horror Story.
Last weekend I watched the movie Creep  starring Mark Duplass and Patrick Brice. It is a slow, but very unnerving flick about a man, Aaron, who responds to a Craigslist ad for a one-day videographer gig.
There are a ton of Christmas horror flicks so why not Thanksgiving? Is it an under-utilized Horror Holiday? After a quick google search, it appears that the holiday is lacking a movie presence in the genre.
'Goodnight Mommy' only needs a trailer to give me the creeps. Just watch the trailer and let me know if you agree.
I have been waiting months for this day; the official trailer for Michael Dougherty’s "Krampus" has been released.
Wes Craven's career spanned decades and his movie success did the same. Anyone who grew up in the 1970's or even in the 2000's has seen a movie of his and was most likely terrified by it.
Here are the 10 horror flicks, currently streaming on Netflix, that are worthy of your evening. Check out the list and let me know what you think.

James Wan is giving us all another scare with the release of “The Conjuring”. His newest flick revolves around real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren and a haunted farmhouse owned by the Perron Family. The film stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, and Lili Taylor. It will be released July 19th.
Drawn to the theater across the street from her apartment, Enola Penny (Virginia Newcomb) wonders through its doors and takes a seat in front of the stage. She is soon greeted by the human puppet Peg Poett (Udo Kier) and the show begins. Each of the 6 tales told by Peg begins with a short dialogue from him and a brief animation from one of the other puppets on the stage.
Hackers broke into a Great Falls news station and interrupted its regular broadcast with an alert of a "zombie apocalypse". It stated, "dead bodies are rising from their graves" and that the bodies were "attacking the living".
"Barrio Tales", like most horror anthologies, includes more humor than horror. I am totally fine with that. Movies like this have a place in the genre because they offer some humor to things that can be terrifying.
While struggling with life after divorce, Mary Kee is haunted by phone calls from a woman that claims to be from the past. At first the calls are simply a nuisance, but once Mary starts to open up and offer advice to the woman things get more complicated
[Update: Added official.]
Some sneaky fan bootlegged the unreleased preview for the new Evil Dead flick coming out next spring. Produced by Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and a hand-full of the others, the remake hopes to please fans of the original classic and impress the younger horror movie fans as well.

To celebrate Halloween this year, I am going to watch 31 horror movies in 31 days. The list isn't determined yet, but I will add the names to the list as I watch them. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Let the Horrorfest begin!
In an interview with Cinemablend, Eli Roth confirmed that he is developing a full length version of his Grindhouse Trailer. Clearly a take off on Halloween, it will be interesting whether the theme can sustain a full treatment while differentiating itself from others in the genre.
Just before Halloween, the fourth installment of the Paranormal Activity series will be coming to a theater near you. The release date is set for October 19th. Not much has been shared about the plot or its story. Although this looks to be very similar to the other films, it still has some appealing differences.
Architect Alex Hurst (Pearce) moves into his recently purchased Gothic mansion in Rhode Island. He brings his new girlfriend Kim (Holmes) and his daughter Sally. Once moved in, whispering voices lure Sally into the dark hellish basement promising friendship and understanding. Sally soon realizes that the creatures she has befriended, have nothing but evil intensions.
Norman Bates and his mother are coming to the small screen.
A&E will be airing the "Bates Motel" in 2013. The show, created by "Lost's" Carlton Cuse and "Friday Night Lights" Kerry Ehrin, will give insight to Norman's youth and explore his relationship with his mother that ultimately led to him become a psychopath.
American Horror Story's second season will take place in an asylum during the 1960's. In an interview with Vulture, Ryan Murphy mentions the show and the direction the follow-up season will take.
Coming to theaters May 25 is 'Chernobyl Diaries'. The horror flick follows 6 'extreme' tourists to the European city of Pripyat, the former home of the Chernobyl factory workers. Once there, the vacationers soon find out that they are not alone. It is directed by Bradley Parker and stars Jesse McCartney and Jonathan Sodawski.
There is no shortage of summertime horror flicks, but I don't mind. This summer will get the addition of Piranha 3DD. Following the success of Piranha 3D released in 2010, the sequel will focus on the same man-eating fish as the first. The second however, takes place at a water park instead of the ocean. It stars Ving Rhames and David Hasselhoff. I am pumped to see it. Anyone else?
"The Woman in Black" (2012) stars Daniel Radcliffe and Ciarán Hinds. It is about a woman that is haunting a small village. It i the highest grossing British Horror film in the last 20 years.
Watching 'Trick 'r Treat' is for sure becoming an annual viewing for me during the Halloween season. It is a fun and entertaining movie that contains four tales that all intertwine with each other. The tales include a wife and her holiday-obsessed husband, a teenager with a dark secret, a evil teenage prank, and a principal with a disturbing thirst for murder. With a hint of irony that reminds me of an episode of Tales from the Crypt, this is definitely one of my favorites.
