    “THE RAID 2″ (Sundance Movie Review)

    It’s unlikely there exists a 2014 movie with more spectacular bloodshed than THE RAID 2. Of course, that statement is a nightmare to those of a queasy nature, or with little constitution for ultraviolence. But anyone fearful THE RAID itself could not be topped, or that its sequel ballooning to a 147-minute runtime would do it a disservice, should begin to feel something in their shoulders. Not hype per se, but more like the thrilling anticipation that permeates the entire movie, as if gearing up to do something truly heart-pounding. As if the movie itself is an opponent. As if you’re waiting for its first punch. You’ll never see it coming, nor the second, or third, or the hammer, or the bat. THE RAID 2 forces its viewer to feel it all, leaving us bruised, exhausted and elated.

    Eerie acquisitions: Lionsgate gets “COOTIES,” Anchor Bay to open “FEAR CLINIC”

    As a year noticeably scant on major genre releases, especially compared to the horror-heavy one before it, 2014 has plenty of room for genre sleepers to make their mark. So as rumblings make their way out of the Sundance Film Festival, it’s no surprise that horror fans can start making room on their calendars, as two notable fright flicks have found Stateside distribution.

    Q&A: Ray Wise on “BIG ASS SPIDER!”

    From ROBOCOP to REAPER and all the PEAKS and CREEPERS in between, the legacy left by Ray Wise in his storied career is unquestionable. Wise has explored his dark and light sides in spades, and given audiences some of the most fascinating and fun characters ever put to screen.

    “THE FOLLOWING” creators talk the new season and violence

    When Fox’s serial-killer series THE FOLLOWING premiered last year, it attracted quite a bit of attention for its extreme, brutal content. With the new season debuting in its regular timeslot next Monday, January 27 following a special preview last night, we asked the people behind the show if that controversy affected their approach to the 2014 episodes.

    “LIFE AFTER BETH” (Sundance Movie Review)

    Somewhere, perhaps even at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, there is a film that’s like LIFE AFTER BETH, but with no zombies. That version is likely anyone’s idea of a “Sundance” movie; essentially, an indie about a devastating break-up. When you consider that alternative, it makes the unique, intimate LIFE AFTER BETH even better and its slot in the festival’s U.S. Dramatic Competition truly satisfying. With horror— at least to this writer and I imagine many readers—is the best way to tell this type of story. Instead of a drab stab at realism, we’re treated to the sometimes sweet, oftentimes icky, intensely funny and cutting chronicle of getting on.

    “24 EXPOSURES” (Movie Review)

    After his impressive and darkly comic horror debut with a segment of V/H/S, many horror lovers wondered when mumblecore auteur and occasional genre actor Joe Swanberg would tackle feature-length horror filmmaking. With his bent toward atmospheric, character-driven storytelling and associations with genre filmmakers like Adam Wingard and Ti West, it was only a matter of time before Swanberg found a horror story of his own to tell—yet fans of his V/H/S piece may be surprised that Swanberg opted out of startling, high-concept scares for the slow-burning dread of 24 EXPOSURES.
