    Exclusive Still, Q&A: “CABIN IN THE WOODS” star Anna Hutchison hits the road in “WRECKER”

    While the road thriller is nothing new to the horror genre, one must admit that there are only few driven by female protagonists. Of course, with high-speed chases, hot-running motors and testosterone-fueled stunt work, that side of the horror genre has been primarily targeted at male audiences for decades now.

    “THE FINAL GIRLS” (Movie Review)

    THE FINAL GIRLS is part of the meta-horror canon, alongside SCREAM, BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON, TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL and CABIN IN THE WOODS, in which the characters are hyper-aware of the horror-movie mythology they inhabit and are thus granted the ability to change the very structure of the trope. Not as arch as the aforementioned films, THE FINAL GIRLS (which won the Audience Award at the recent Stanley Film Festival) has a surprisingly affecting emotional core, built on the chemistry between actresses Taissa Farmiga and Malin Akerman.

    “STIGMATA” (Blu-ray Review)

    Unfortunately, one of the most accepted theories on the history of horror was that the ‘90s was a dark decade for the genre. While this might not necessarily be true, this writer understands why some might believe it to be so, considering there was so much in the zeitgeist meant to appease the angry youth of the time. Said angry youth, which propelled the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Limp Bizkit and Eminem into multi-platinum status over the weepy, grungy days of rock past, would inspire similar aesthetic choices on the horror films of the time, giving us derivative, misbegotten fright fare such as THE RAGE: CARRIE 2, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS and STIGMATA.

    Stream to Scream: “THE CANAL”

    Last year, independent horror was, for the most part, defined by the less-is-more approach of blending psychological horror with supernatural horror. After all, while something popping out of a dark doorway will always be startling, the idea of something beyond our comprehension lurking behind that door is all the more scary. Of course, this approach was used in THE BABADOOK, UNDER THE SKIN, THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN and more, allowing filmmakers to play with the fantasy and storybook elements behind a horror tale and infuse it into real-world consequences. But where Ivan Kavanaugh’s THE CANAL particularly succeeds is in how visceral the psychological horror can be, offering something much more terrifying and shocking than a sense of nightmarish foreboding.
