Whether its the setting of a black magic ritual by a coven of witches or a backwoods murderer in a mask and overalls, the forest is one of the few places that can invoke fear in even the most ardent of fright fans. Yet for a film like BACKCOUNTRY, the scariest aspect of the woods is nature itself: the unforgiving reality of a lost couple at the mercy of the wilderness and all of its inhabitants.

    When talking about the work and legacy of Wes Craven, where does one begin?

But when you’re talking about the influence of a horror maestro whose career spanned over 40 years, where else should you begin than with A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET?

  • Stream to Scream: “MOCKINGBIRD”

    ,,

    When watching a film like MOCKINGBIRD, which essentially plays as a found footage home invasion film constructed like a puzzlebox, a question arises in the head of the viewer: if a film commits so many cinematic crimes yet remains effortlessly gripping, can one consider it good? Make no mistake, even the most predictable moments of MOCKINGBIRD were tense, scary and even a bit unsettling.
