In the last month of her pregnancy, Esther Woodhouse is savagely beaten in an alleyway by an unknown assailant and loses her baby. To aid in her recovery, she attends a support group for grieving parents where she meets Melanie, who claims her son and husband were killed by a drunk driver.
Esther and Melanie develop a friendship, but soon it becomes clear that both are harboring much darker secrets than they initially let on. And when both their lives are transformed by another shocking act of violence, they find that recovery may be impossible.
This movie has had my interest since I first peeped the trailer that I have included below. I’ve heard some mixed reaction to the film, as it was recently released to VOD platforms, but after a trailer that awesome, I still have hopes for enjoying it myself. IFC have announced that they will be releasing […]
Antiviral is the feature-length directorial debut from Brandon Cronenberg, son of David Cronenberg. David Cronenberg, for me, is easily one of the top five genre filmmakers of all time. While a lot of his films fit a similar pattern, he has an extremely diverse body of work. From his early body-horror films, to his recent […]
For a lot of reasons, I hate blurbs on the cover of home video releases. Either the quote is taken from somebody, so desperately aiming to be quoted, or, it’s taken out of context, which has happened to even little old me. If I had half of a penny for every time some pompous chum-scrubber […]
For whatever reason, I’ve put off sitting down to watch Would You Rather, for as long as possible. In my younger years, I would dive into any low budget, independent film balls first, and ask questions later. As the economy takes a nosedive down the toilet, and digital entertainment dominates the rental market, the fact […]
10 new images from the upcoming remake to ‘Maniac’ have made their way online. Continue on after the jump to check out the other 9 stills.
How seriously do you think I take Halloween? Well, I’m fairly frickin’ anal retentive anyway, so I need to book my viewing in advance. I mean I’ll deviate from my itinerary, but I at least need a plan. I can’t be the only one out there with a stick up his ass. So this October/Halloween […]
Not many films develop the amount of hyperbole that surrounded The Human Centipede. Before the flick was even available to audiences, director Tom Six was touting it as one of the “sickest films of all time.” To be fair to Six, I think his intentions were pure. I think a lot of his theory relied […]
It seems like I’ve been waiting for Stake Land for at least two years now. The moment I laid eyes on the first trailer, I knew that this was the vampire film that I had been waiting on. It’s hard to be a fan of the sub-genre, as most things related have been terrible, especially […]
London’s annual long weekend of gore and terror, Frightfest, is a mecca for UK and European horror fanatics. Sadly due to other commitments, this particular writer was only able to attend one afternoon’s worth of big screen thrills. Happily, from the reports of friends and colleagues, it appears I caught the best of the bunch. […]
It would seem that IFC Midnight have really putting forth the effort to get a good wide range of horror onto our screens of late. The latest is Canadian movie The Shrine which won Best Canadian Feature at the Fantasia Film Festival , and is set to hit VOD on July 15th.
A little over a year ago, a film titled DAYBREAKERS came out. I’m sure you’ve all heard of it, or even read about it here on this very site. It promised a post-apocalyptic vampire film with a seemingly intriguing premise, a B-to-A-list-cast and a directing/writing duo that previously gave us a little-zombie-film-that-could in the form […]
