indie horror

Larry Fessenden seems like a dude you would want to party with.

The monstrous child may be one of the more persistent horror tropes of the passed 10 years. Though remakes and all sorts of paranormal/possession narratives run the day them kids are still savage. From “Let the Right One In” in 2008 and 2009’s “Grace” we’ve been treated to “Let Me In”, “Come Out and Play”, the “It’s Alive” remake, “Orphan”, “Citadel” and director Ciaràn Foy’s next effort “Sinister 2” and the upcoming “Cooties”.

The Download Horror

In my short tenure as film reviewer for Bloody Good Horror, I will say that writing this review for “The Download Horror” is the biggest challenge I’ve had so far. What can I say about this movie? On the one hand, it reminds me of the horror movies that we probably made when we were 15 years old with a cheap camera, a bucket of ketchup, and a bunch of friends. On the flip side, the creators of this movie aren’t 15 (at least I don’t think they are), and it’s just not a good movie. I mean... it is bad.

"American Mary" has been taking the horror world by storm lately, and it's easy to see why. It's directed by the "Soska Twins", Jen and Sylvia, a rising directing duo most known at this point for their dark horror comedy "Dead Hooker in a Trunk".

“Excision” is a movie that defies categorization. It’s being marketed as a horror film, which, while that label is not entirely accurate, is understandable because the film contains a level of squishy gore and bodily fluids that isn’t typically seen outside of genre affairs. Some might argue that it’s more of a comedy. While it is true that mainstream comedies of the last few years have been incrementally edging up against the line between funny and disgusting, “Excision” gleefully charges past that line and dares the audience to laugh or blow chunks.
