Our final entry in the Killer Dolls series: the original Child’s Play from 1988! Brad Dourif plays a serial killer / dark sorcerer trapped in an ugly doll. In his campaign of blood and evil, he preys on a very dumb little kid and battles two very gullible adults.
Our Killer Dolls series continues with a chapter from The Conjuring-verse! A yuppy couple (who should really break up) keep an obviously haunted doll around for no reason. Padded plot, overdone jumpscares, and Rosemary’s Baby references abound!
A new short series: Killer Dolls! Before Annabelle… Before Chucky… There was: Fats the Dummy! Anthony Hopkins stars as a magician who battles the evil will of Fats, along with his own cringe-worthy struggles with love.
“There are moments created by master filmmakers … that infuse our nightmares…” We fondly revisit Bravo’s frightful miniseries.
Find out why this horror nerd endured a pointless sequel, why George C. Scott is a bad detective, why this hospital is terrible, and why this is almost a good movie.
In 1996, Scream entered the failing horror scene with an established horror director but completely new everything else. It paid off then–how does it hold up now?
Unlike its peers, ‘Urban Legend’ isn’t trying too hard. One might say it isn’t trying at all. The only ‘challenging’ aspect is keeping track of its internal urban myth bingo.
A great movie to emphasize ‘fuck death!’ Originally a draft X-Files script, Final Destination was supposed to be an ‘anti-slasher’ movie. It’s an anti-something, all right. It gets crazy, it gets dumb. Let’s die-ve into Death’s Die-sign!
I Know What You Did Last Summer is ‘prime’ teen slasher horror. Our cast is quintessentially 90s. The villain cloaked in an improbable, vaguely menacing costume. The script has the depth of a puddle. It is not a good product. But it is entertainingly mock-able.
The Lodge has offerings that any horror fan can appreciate—creepy dolls, 80s home-videos, cults, clips from The Thing, etc. But it is a bleak jaunt to the cinema.
