The Devil Inside (REVIEW)

Devil Inside

"Paranormal Activity," a series that has now reached three films with a fourth on the way later this year, put found footage horror in the mainstream. When done well (see here, here or here) the style can produce a transcendent horror experience.

Snapshot: "The Devil Inside" (2012)

The new year brings the next in a long line of found footage films that are coming our way. Director William Brent Bell of "Stay Alive" fame brings us "The Devil Inside," a movie about demonic possession, religion, science and mental illness. The good news: This one actually looks like it might be pretty promising. The movie is about a woman named Isabella who is trying to find out the truth behind an exorcism performed on her mother years ago that resulted in the murder of three people.

The Rite (REVIEW)

Anthony Hopkins knows The Rite

Exorcism films can take one of two perspectives: the first, and more common, is that of the possessed. Here films such as "The Unborn" or "A Haunting in Connecticut" establish a connection between the audience and an individual suffering at the whims of ungodly and unknowable forces. This perspective allows us access to the fears and pains of those most directly affected.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday November 24th, 2010

Here's a new one sheet for the new found footage flick "Apollo 18". The movie is a follow up to the 1996 Academy Award winning film "Apollo 13" staring Tom Hanks. Wait, no? That's not right. Ah whatever just watch the clip.

With Christmas just around the corner it's time to celebrate the holiday season with a horror movie that shows a crazy Santa going around murdering the crap out of people. As luck would have it we have a new red band trailer for "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale", the Finnish flick that does just that. I feel so warm.

Wait seriously they're making a "Final Destination 5"? That's not a joke. Well at least it isn't going to be in 3D right? Oh god it's going to be in 3D! You build me up with a crazy Santa and then you just cut me right back down with this crap. Well played.

Here's some new screen shots from "The Rite" staring Anthony Hopkins as a Priest who gets involved with an exorcism. When did possession become the big rage? I missed the memo. I can't wait for next Halloween when people just walk around spitting split pea soup at each other.

In Real People News: 

I love when people find a way to sexually harass a large group of people in one fatal swoop. Like Canada's industry minister who told a crowd he wants "more Canadian sex stories". Apparently he meant to say "success" but in this economy couldn't we all use a few good sex stories to brighten up our day?

I think I finally found a reason to watch soccer. A amateur player in London was given a red card recently, no idea what that means by the way, and took out his frustration by driving his car out onto the field and trying to run down the official. Alright I'm kidding, this is still not a reason to watch soccer.

The Last Exorcism (REVIEW)

The Last Exorcism

Daniel Stamm, director of "The Last Exorcism," must have missed the Hollywood-wide bulletin that 3-D was the new gimmick of choice for genre filmmakers. In "Exorcism," Stamm instead turns to first person perspective to weave his tale -- a choice that is just so 2008. Luckily, it's also a choice that helps make a small, low wattage horror movie more than the sum of its seemingly pedestrian parts.
