Creep (2015)

Running Time: 82 minutes
Release Date: June 23, 2015 (iTunes)/July 14th (Netflix)
Review by: Stacey


 Creep is a perfect example that you don't need all the bells and whistles to make a really effective horror film.  Sometimes all you need is a camera, two guys, and a 10 page "script".  A wolf mask named "Peachfuzz" doesn't hurt either...

The Road (2011)

Running Time: 110 minutes
Release Date: May 11, 2012
Review by: Stacey

I love a good, foreign horror and usually 9 times out of 10 they're far better than most American films ([REC], The Devil's Backbone, Audition).  I don't know why, but I've always had some luck when finding foreign horror films in that they've all ended up being pretty damn great- and 2011's Filipino horror The Road was no exception.

Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

Running Time: 97 minutes
Release Date: June 5, 2015
Review by: Stacey

 I'm not even going to lie, the Insidious franchise has some of my favorite movies to date.  Yes, I have seen many many horror films, but I am speaking from a "modern horror" view.  With the constant debate in the horror community about originality vs remakes, it's easy to want to shake the shit out of people who overlook some of the best mainstream modern horror films that have been released in the last few years- The Conjuring, Sinister, Insidious 1 & 2.  The latter franchise decided to give us a third film and make it a prequel (and give us a bit of an origin story), which made me a bit reticent in my excitement as I like my horror universes to maintain that bit of mystery that makes the film scary...and because most origin stories tend to fall flat (hello, Leprechaun: Origins).  Insidious: Chapter 3 did not have that problem.

The Prowler (1981)

Running Time: 89 minutes
Release Date: November 6, 1981
Review by: Adam


As you can tell, I love horror movies.  What you might not know, I also love war movies, especially those set in World War II.  Now you want to offer me up a slasher-flick involving an antagonist dressed in a combat uniform and early 80’s prog-rock at the dance?  I’m in.  Oh, and it’s directed by Joseph Zito, who did my favorite Friday the 13th (The Final Chapter) AND my favorite Chuck Norris film (Missing in Action), and make-up by Mr. Savini?  Now my only question is WHY HAVEN’T I BEEN WATCHING THIS EVERY YEAR SINCE 1981?
